    RUSH: Now, Rasmussen has come out with Trump approval numbers at 49%. But I want to play you an audio sound bite, and it is No. 5. Yesterday I made the point that what the media has to do… In order to actually allow other authorities to impeach Trump or to get rid of him, they’ve got to drive his approval numbers down to the thirties. They have to do that, like they did George W. Bush, like they did Nixon. They have to do this. They have to somehow get those numbers down so that it is apparent Trump...

    Recently-unionized writers and editors at Slate have reportedly voted almost unanimously to strike over concerns about the company's diversity policies and a rule mandating that union fees be optional for Slate employees. Bloomberg News reports that Slate employees voted 52 to 1 in favor of a strike and have begun considering when workers will walk out. A spokesman for the union told Bloomberg that the rules mandating optional union fees at the left-leaning blog seemed to be a "betrayal" of the site's values. “We just feel that it’s a total and absolute betrayal of Slate’s most fundamental values,” Slate writer...

    RUSH: Let’s go to the audio sound bites. I want to first start… Here, grab sound bite No. 3. We put together a montage here of the Drive-By Media pushing impeachment all weekend, and what this is… I mean, this is designed to do exactly what I have been warning everybody was coming. They’re trying to dispirit you. They’re trying to make it harder for you to verbalize your support for Trump. They’re trying to make you doubt him. It’s all about driving his approval numbers down to the thirties. It’s about making you think this is a lost cause....
  • ABC, NBC Hype President Trump’s ‘Inevitable’ Impeachment By Dems

    According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration. “We now have a president of the United States who has essentially been implicated in a felony by his own Justice Department,” boasted ABC anchor Dan Harris to chief global...
  • Chris Matthews Suggests: 'Witch Hunt' to Impeach Trump for Covering Up Affairs

    Was Chris Matthews suddenly struck by some semblance of fairness? Or is the Bill Clinton fan, and the man who has described notorious womanizer JFK as a "hero," reluctant to condemn presidents for their peccadilloes? On his Hardball show this evening, Matthews suggested that impeaching a President over sexual misbehavior would be a "witch hunt." Said Matthews, posing the question to Dem Rep. Hakeem Jeffries: Chris Matthews: 'Witch Hunt' to Impeach Trump for Covering Up Affairs CHRIS MATTHEWS: Do you think you can actually impeach a President for basically covering up sexual misbehavior? I mean, we had this with Clinton....
  • America’s Trojan Horses Are Sacking Us From Within

    The kidnapping of Helen of Sparta by Paris of Troy sparked a 10-year clash of fruitless battles between Troy and Mycenaean Greece in 12th century BC. The deadlock ended quickly after the Greek hero Odysseus had a brilliant idea: “Let’s give Troy a gift.” Pretending to quit the war, the Greek armies rolled a giant wooden horse outside the gates of Troy, then sailed to the island of Tenedos nearby. One unarmed Greek stayed behind to persuade Trojans that the horse was a gift. It worked. Disarmed by the gift, Trojans pulled the wooden horse inside the city walls and...
  • CNN’s Stelter Takes Shots at ‘Criminal Presidency’ Ran By Trump, Fox News

    CNN media reporter and TV host Brian Stelter’s hatred for President Trump and Fox News was on full display during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources”. He spent most of the show decrying the President and Fox News while relegating the disturbing and horrific revelations in the sexual misconduct allegations against former CBS executive Les Moonves to a segment during the latter half of the program. In the first segment of the show, Stelter was speaking with CNN political analyst and former Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein about the similarities between the scandals for former President Richard Nixon and President Donald Trump. “After you...

    NBC's Katy Tur, responding to an article in the New Yorker about climate, looked into the camera and asked, "How pointless is my life? And how pointless are the decisions that I make on a day-to-day basis when we are not focused on climate change every day, when it's not leading every one of our newscasts?" It's a safe bet that not only will climate change not lead all newscasts, it will not even lead Tur's very often. And the reason is not any of those often proffered for failure to act in ways activists prefer. It won't be that...

    President Trump was himself the subject rather than the instigator of an inappropriate joke this week. ABC news correspondents Terry Moran and Devin Dwyer came under fire for their remarks about how Trump's funeral might compare to that of former President George H.W Bush. Chief foreign correspondent Moran and contributing correspondent Dwyer were covering the live stream of the 41st President's funeral on Wednesday when they began to imagine how differently Trump would want his own service. Moran mused that there would 'Probably a different tone in that funeral… first he's going to choreograph it, so there might be more...

    Regardless of the arguments attempting to deny the existence of fake news or down play its impact, the truth is that it has infected both journalism and social discourse. The business of propaganda or creating false news for the purpose of manipulating public opinion is not new. People like Dan Rather have made a career of it, the New York Times built an empire using it and CNN created a worldwide brand, making the use of fake news an accepted format in the process. ~snip~ The first amendment guarantees both free speech and freedom of the press. It is fundamental...
  • Come On: Nets Made Bush’s Funeral About Trump’s Behavior

    They just couldn’t help themselves. During their Wednesday evening reports on the deeply touching and emotional funeral service for the late President George H.W. Bush at the National Cathedral, broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC had to get in their digs against President Trump for his behavior (or lack thereof). One even touted how Trump managed to keep his mouth shut about Bush all week. In the midst of their stories on the funeral service, both ABC and CBS noted the tension between President Trump and the Clintons. “The Trumps and Clintons did not shake hands,” reported CBS Evening News...
  • North Korea's 'pink lady' replaced by younger presenters as state TV gets makeover

    North Korea's most famous news anchor has reportedly been replaced by younger presenters as the country's state-owned broadcaster undergoes a modern makeover. Ri Chun-hee began working for North Korean TV in 1971 and became chief news presenter of KCTV in the 1980s. Nicknamed the "pink lady," she usually wears a pink Western-style suit or traditional Hanbok dress. She has been characterised by her animated announcing style, resonant voice and sometimes vitriolic tone, and was once described as "vaguely menacing". But the 75-year-old presenter - who cried onscreen when announcing the deaths of Kim II-sung and Kim Jong-il - has not...

    Turns out that what we see and hear on NPR, PBS, etc. is an intentionally toned-down version of just how liberal they really are. Makes you wonder what they'd be like if they let their true progressive flags fly: a live feed of Cuban government TV, with occasional features from Venezuelan Public Broadcasting? On MSNBC's AM Joy today, Maria Hinojosa said: "The government supports the Corporation for Public Broadcasting that supports public media, which is independent. Although oftentimes kind of bends over backward to show that they're not too progressive, precisely because they don't want to be caught on that...

    Matt Lauer is struggling to cope with his life away from the TV cameras — but isn’t thinking of making “a comeback” or getting back to work anytime soon, according to a new report. The scandal-scarred former morning talk show host has been keeping a low profile since he was fired from the “Today” show precisely one year ago amid a torrent of sexual misconduct allegations. “It has been hard for him. He went from being a super busy person to having nothing but time on his hands,” the source close to Lauer told People magazine. “He is not doing...

    UPDATE: Well, CNN had a response to Hill’s remarks: You’re fired. CNN severed ties with contributor Marc Lamont Hill on Thursday, following comments the university professor made in a speech at the United Nations. “Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN,” a CNN spokesperson told Mediaite. Oh, it’s just another day where someone is calling for the destruction of Israel. No, it’s not Hamas, but CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill sure took a page out of their book saying, “Justice requires a free Palestine from the river to the sea.” Hill, who is also a professor at...

    New York (CNN Business)The digital news company Mic has laid off most of its staff, a spokesperson for the company confirmed. The layoffs were first reported Thursday by Recode. It is not yet clear exactly how many employees were affected. Mic declined to comment beyond confirming the Recode report. The company was founded in 2011, and for the past several years has branded itself as a news website geared toward millennials. Mic Publisher Cory Haik also resigned Thursday. In a note to staff that was obtained by CNN Business, Haik called journalism a "tough business."(continued at link)

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    It's one of those mornings when you wonder whether 'JournoList' has been resurrected, or if perhaps the talking heads at CNN and MSNBC have found some other means of agreeing on their talking points for the day. Because the opening segments today on MSNBC's Morning Joe and CNN's New Day were eerily similar. Both shows highlighted a New York Post interview in which President Trump declined to take a pardon for Paul Manafort off the table. Both shows then brought in legal analysts and kibitzers to float the notion that President Trump's statement could constitute "obstruction." For good measure, the...

    As Bill D'Agostino has previously reported this week at NewsBusters, the media have erected a “wall of falsehoods” surrounding the caravan of economic migrants making its way to the United States-Mexico border from Central America. On Tuesday’sTucker Carlson Tonight, the eponymous host addressed this very topic and asking the rhetorical question of whether or not the press is “better than a propaganda outlet.” Along with guest Buck Sexton, Carlson refuted six claims made by the media and Democrats regarding the caravan. When discussing the first claim that most of the caravan consisted of “women and children,” Sexton slammed the media...

    Let's revisit this post from election week, in which I highlighted a number of notable Republican victors in the media's much-discussed "year of the woman."  Since that piece went live, a number of the tentative outcomes have changed: Young Kim narrowly lost in California, Martha McSally narrowly lost in Arizona (though could end up in the Senate anyway), and despite winning comfortably, Cathy McMorris Rodgers stepped aside from leadership, with Liz Cheney taking her place as the top-ranking Republican woman in the House.  A number of female incumbents from competitive districts also lost by a hair, such Mimi Walters and...
