    The decision not to send Megyn Kelly to the 2018 Winter Olympics with the rest of NBC's top team is 'embarrassing' according to one insider. It was announced last week that Kelly will be staying home for the Olympics next month, hosting her 9am show from Rockefeller Center while most of the Today team is in in PyeongChang, South Korea.
  • NBC boosts Axios out of the gate

    NBC boosts Axios out of the gate By Erik Wemple January 24, 2017 Start-up news site Axios, like all start-ups, begins life with a name-recognition deficit. The term itself is Greek for “worthy” and thus could describe a number of industries, including, say, an organic juice bar and dry-salt-therapy provider” in Tallahassee, Fla. Around these parts, however, Axios gains recognition from its co-founders, Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen — the Politico mainstays who upended the way that Beltway journalism is practiced. One of Politico’s most resounding lessons — and one that VandeHei, Allen and former Politico executive Kim Kingsley willed...

Sadler left the station when she discovered she was making half her cohost's, Jason Kennedy, salary. An NBC insider said Megyn tried to book Sadler for the Megyn Kelly Today show to talk about gender wage gap issues.

    The revolution will be televised, that’s the word coming down from NBC executives who say they will televise any player who chooses to protest the anthem during the Super Bowl. “When you are covering a live event, you are covering what’s happening,” NBC Sports EP Fred Gaudelli told reporters at the Television Critics Association on Tuesday. “If there are players who choose to kneel, they will be shown live,” he said. Gaudelli explained that, if a player chose to protest during the anthem, NBC broadcasters Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth would likely give the players’s name, some background on the...

    While national anthem protests have slowed around the NFL, it has still dominated national conversation throughout this season. So what if such protests — namely kneeling — were to surface at the Super Bowl? Fred Gaudelli, the executive producer of the Super Bowl, told reporters Tuesday night that the network would indeed capture any kneeling at the game. "It was a pretty big story in our country this fall,” Gaudelli said Tuesday. “The Super Bowl is a live event, just like ‘Sunday Night Football.’ When you’re covering a live event, you’re covering whats happening. “So if there are players that...

    NBC deleted a tweet posted during Sunday night’s Golden Globes telecast which appeared to endorse the suggestion made by host Seth Meyers that Oprah Winfrey should be president of the U.S. “Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” NBC tweeted during the comedian’s monologue on Sunday night. […] The original tweet met with outrage from conservatives — including Donald Trump Jr. and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer — as well as members of the media who said it called into question the network’s objectivity. …

    Despite buzz generated by the speculation that Oprah Winfrey may mount a presidential run, NBC on Sunday appeared it was already on board when the network called her “OUR future president” in a tweet. On Monday, NBC removed the tweet and blamed a “third party agency” for sending it out. “Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast,” NBC said in a clarifying Twitter post. “It is in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a...

    Steve Bannon has unified the Republican Party — against Steve Bannon. And President Donald Trump stands to benefit most from his former chief strategist's comeuppance. Without Bannon barking in his ear — and nipping at the heels of Republican senators — it will be easier for Trump to deliver on the remainder of a legislative agenda that threatens to strain his base over issues such as federal spending, government wiretaps and immigration. Similarly, a weakened Bannon figures to have less firepower to challenge sitting Republican senators — and imperil Trump's GOP majority — in this year's midterm elections.

    In the wake of the immense political conflagration that Michael Wolff’s upcoming book Fire and Fury has caused, Thursday’s Morning Joe was almost entirely consumed by discussion of all its salacious claims and their implications for the Trump White House. Even though multiple guest panelists on the show admitted to the shaky factual foundation for Wolff’s book and the unproven nature of many of his assertions, they nevertheless largely treated his testament as gospel. Much of Morning Joe’s coverage focused on dissecting the purported comments of Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. However, co-host...

    For the second day in a row, NBC’s Peter Alexander and Yahoo’s Hunter Walker asked questions from the far-left in Wednesday’s White House press briefing, insinuating to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that people should be concerned that President Trump is behaving like a mentally ill authoritarian.  Alexander kicked things off part way through the tense briefing, smugly informing Sanders that he had “a couple of questions,” all of which he’d “try to make these simple.”   Absolutely Nuts: NBC, Yahoo! News Reporters Suggest Trump Is a Mentally Ill Authoritarian  Following a brief retort from Sanders, Alexander first asked if Donald...

    Hoda Kotb, the longtime co-host of the fourth hour of the NBC morning franchise “Today,” will replace Matt Lauer as co-anchor of the program’s opening hours, the network said on Tuesday. Savannah Guthrie, the show’s other anchor, announced the news of Ms. Kotb’s appointment during Tuesday’s broadcast... This is the first time that two women will be the main hosts of “Today,” which first went on the air in 1952 and is the network’s most profitable franchise. The show has an overwhelmingly female audience, and the feel-good nature of much of its content and the convivial byplay between its personalities...
  • NBC's Year-End Fake News Tweets Target Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke

    NBC News has produced yet another establishmetn press story to cap off a year of media sloppiness unlike any other. On Friday, the network breathlessly tweeted out a copy of a search warrant "made public today," directed at "an e-mail address associated with Trump surrogate and former Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr." That the warrant itself was dated March 7 apparently didn't curb NBC's enthusiasm. Here's NBC's opening tweet (full search warrant is at the link): Clarke, who resigned from his position four months ago, is a major African-American supporter of President Donald Trump and a vocal opponent...

    It is fitting that 2017, a year of the unexpected, ends with more unexpected news. In an attempt to crack down on sexual harassment on the job, NBC has reportedly issued strict new guidelines which call for employees to rat out the miscreants in their midst. Not only so, but NBC has allegedly banned shared taxi rides for employees and even issued instructions on how to hug. Yes, NBC is going the way of sexual prudery – or perhaps the way of wisdom?As reported on Page Six, “NBC employees have been ordered to report any inappropriate relationships in the workplace...

The shocked teenagers took the camera to Pleasantville police just before 8pm that night, which was found to contain incriminating images on the memory card. “He intentionally installed a video recording device in a tissue box located in his family’s bathroom to surreptitiously view a person dressing or undressing…at a place and time when (the victim) had...

    NBC has issued strict new anti-sexual harassment rules to employees — including that staffers must snitch on any misbehaving colleagues — in the wake of the firing of disgraced “Today” show host Matt Lauer. A source tells Page Six that NBC employees have been ordered to report any inappropriate relationships in the workplace — and if they fail to do so, they could be fired for covering up for colleagues. Detailed rules also have been issued about conduct in the office, including how to socialize and even how to hug colleagues. A source says, “Romantic relationships at work are not...

    NBC made a separation-related payment years ago to an employee who worked for Chris Matthews after she accused him of sexual harassment, according to a report Saturday. The unidentified woman, a former assistant producer on his MSNBC show, "Hardball with Chris Matthews," told company executives that Matthews made inappropriate remarks and jokes about her with others present, the Daily Caller reported. After a review, Matthews received a formal reprimand, but determined that his comments towards the woman were only childish and inappropriate and not meant as propositions. Sources told the outlet that NBC paid the woman $40,000 in a 1999...

    (That thrill wasn't up his leg!) An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package.

    Congressional Republicans were one step closer to realizing their hopes for tax reform on Thursday as it appeared as though the House and Senate had reconciled nearly all of the legislation. Hearing the recommendations and concerns of the public, the Republicans preserved the current tax codeÂ’s deductions for student loans, medical bills, and added a $10,000 cap for state and local taxes. But of the three major network news outlets, NBC was the only one that left them out of their evening broadcast. Instead of reporting what was known to be in the GOP tax reform bill, NBC Nightly News...
