    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Meghan McCain won’t be tuning into the Sarah Palin Channel any time soon. “I am not going to subscribe to Sarah Palin’s $9.95 per month,” McCain said on Monday during her Pivot show TakePart Live. “I got all the Sarah Palin I need for one lifetime.” Palin, the 2008 running mate of McCain’s father Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), announced Sunday that she will be starting her own Internet television news channel, the Sarah Palin Channel. “This is a news channel that really is a lot more than news,” Palin said in a video posted to Facebook on Sunday. “This is...

    Former first child (now with child) Chelsea Clinton had a $600,000 annual contract at NBC News, Politico reports, where she served as a "special correspondent" and was deemed to be mostly useless, if not "one of the most boring people of her era." That deal is over now, but Clinton is still being paid by the network (which has also hired Luke Russert, Meghan McCain, and Jenna Bush ... ) on a month-to-month basis, with complicating factors including her pregnancy and the good odds her mother is running for president. -snip- That work included little of note, either journalistically or...

    Gwyneth Paltrow recently said that dealing with internet trolls and online haters is an experience similar to what soldiers go through in wartime. Right. Yeah. Well, Cindy McCain, whose husband kind of knows what war is actually like, fired back on Twitter today, and her daughter Meghan McCain also joined the pile-on for Paltrow’s ridiculous comparison. Paltrow said at the Code Conference this week, “You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing. It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out...

    The daughter of John McCain has said her father could have had Jesus Christ as his running mate and still not won the 2008 US presidential election. McCain chose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, a move which many blamed for his eventual defeat against Barack Obama. But Meghan McCain told Larry King in an interview for his PoltiKING show that this is not the reason why her father lost the election.

    “Washington is getting so many things wrong about young people,” McCain, the host of an upcoming TV series on politics for cable channel Pivot, told TIME at the Time/People pre-White House Correspondents’ Dinner cocktail party on Friday. The district, she said, needs to start paying more attention to the demographic. Youngsters can be socially liberal and fiscally conservative, she said, but politicians such as her father, former Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R—Ariz)—can’t seem to fully grasp that. “Washington is not having a nuanced conversation about young people,” McCain says. But the host of the new late-night series hopes...

    After only one short season, Senator John McCain's daughter Meghan saw the cancellation of her reality show, Raising McCain. However, on the heels of that cancellation, the Pivot Network has now announced that McCain will host a midnight political talk show. McCain's reality show debuted in September but apparently is already done. Despite the personal appeal of its star to liberals, Raising McCain was widely panned by reviewers. In fact, it was mocked outright. The show was said to be plumbing "new depths of irritation" and was a "caricature of youth political engagement." One reviewer even pointedly said that the...

    Sen. John McCain’s daughter says her dad is “depressed” and “frustrated” with the tea party faction of the Republican Party, which she called “the hyper-conservative wing.” A state of mind many in the tea party can relate to in their radical pursuit of a more fiscally responsible, limited federal government. “We’re both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses,” Meghan McCain said during an interview with ABC and Yahoo News. Ms. McCain, who has her own reality show “Raising McCain,” said the last time her father was so depressed...

McCain has often made herself out to be a victim of close-minded conservatives who simply reject her for her less-than-dogmatic policy preferences. But McCain forgets that she has made a career of being a contrarian – her vehicle for getting air time consists almost entirely of starting fights with Republican pundits and lawmakers.

    Meghan McCain is a person who gets paid to think and say intelligent things about politics on cable news. The daughter of Sen. John McCain, who before joining MSNBC was famous for tweeting a provocative photo of her breasts, joined Lawrence O’Donnell last night to discuss her father’s endorsement of Mitt Romney. Other than stating the obvious about Romney (“[his sons] are just perfect and beautiful”) she took the time to call someone else a “moron”– namely, Rick Santorum who, had Sen. McCain endorsed him, “I mean, I’d be, like, slitting my wrists” over it. RELATED: Meghan McCain Predicts ‘Bedlam...

    Anyone who has watched the news today and has a good head on their shoulders is probably still befuddled by Rick Santorum's almost-win in Iowa (eight votes shy of Mitt Romney) last night. The Pennsylvania Senator may be passionate about his beliefs, but those beliefs are so counter to what most Americans believe that it's absolutely terrifying to think of him within even 10,000 votes of the GOP nomination.

    John McCain has to be the biggest ingrate in Washington, which is not a town noted for its gratitude. As House Republicans valiantly try to brings some semblance of fiscal sanity to the federal budget there is the 2008 Republican presidential nominee carrying water for the Democratic Party and splashing it in Republican faces. His daughter, Meghan, is a chip off her father’s block. More on that further down.
