    Univision. NBCUniversal. Macy's. They've all severed ties with 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump over remarks he made about immigration and Mexicans. The two broadcast powers have refused to air the Miss Universe pageant, which Trump partially owns, on July 12, and Mexican officials affiliated with the outdated pageant have said they won't send a representative to the event. Trump has responded in-kind with harsh remarks, particularly through Twitter, setting ablaze any potential future relationship with these companies. However, while Trump has been battling on multiple fronts, he believed he has the backing of the golf world. “I’ve had tremendous support...

These general principals are why NBC and every GOP presidential candidate should be very fearful right now of Donald Trump. He won't play by the rules in politics because he has run a totalitarian regime. He will also fight till the end because he wrongfully believes he has nothing to lose in business. The proof for...

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) —Organizers of next month's Miss USA pageant say "the show will go on," despite NBC's decision to not broadcast the event after splitting with Donald Trump. "We are disheartened by recent events but the show will go on," the Miss Universe organization said in a statement Tuesday morning. "We are moving forward, full-steam ahead as planned for the next two weeks, culminating in the crowning of a new Miss USA on July 12." However, the show currently has no television broadcaster. Before NBC pulled out, Univision, the biggest Spanish-language broadcaster in the country, decided last week to...

And even as NBC became the latest network to sever its ties to Trump after he characterized Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals, Trump insisted he had nothing to apologize for, saying his remarks were “100 percent correct.”(continued)

Right after NBC cut all ties with him, the presidential candidate was already in a press conference, and revealed that even though NBC doesn’t agree, he still stands by the controversial remarks on Mexican immigrants. Following being dropped by NBC on June 29, Donald Trump, 69, revealed that he was not going to backtrack and that NBC was actually just mad that he was running for president.

    In an appearance on Monday's broadcast of MSNBC's Hardball NBC terrorism analyst Evan Kohlmann berated Pamela Geller and those who hosted a contest to draw the prophet Mohammed in Garland, Texas on Sunday night. The event ended tragically when two gunmen, at least one being a Muslim, shot a security guard before they were shot dead by police. Kohlmann said that while everyone has the right to freedom of speech, the coordinators of this event were "standing by the principle of hatred for other people." However, Kohlmann did admit that the response to contest was "predictable." "Everyone has the right...

    At this point, Brian Williams knows he’s dead: He’s simply negotiating the terms of his burial. For a brief moment earlier this week, it looked as though Williams might have found a champion in Andrew Lack, the newly returned chief of NBC News. According to a blind-sourced story in the Daily News, Lack was hoping to reseat his old friend Williams in the network’s anchor chair. But whoever launched that trial balloon—presumably a Williams loyalist—must have been ducking for cover the next day when the Hollywood Reporter and the New York Post sent high-velocity rounds through the Daily News item...

    American citizenship as a birthright has recently become a prominent issue in the ongoing immigration debate, and congressional leaders sought answers during a hearing Wednesday. The House Judiciary Committee called upon legal experts to discuss whether the U.S. Constitution actually allows children born in the United States to be citizens, even if their parents are illegal immigrants. Under the Citizenship Clause, which falls under the Fourteenth Amendment, people born within the country or its territories are automatically granted citizenship

    This time, Brian Williams may not be exaggerating. Talks between the exiled anchor and NBCUniversal have recently become tense — with the 55-year-old newsman saying he will not have his “NBC Nightly News” job taken away without a battle, The Post has learned. “Brian is saying he’s not going down without a fight and [is] threatening to make it really ugly — worse than Ann Curry,” a source close to NBC told The Post. [Snip] Without a doubt, there is an increasing urgency within NBCUniversal management ranks to bring the prickly situation to an end. [Snip] As talks between Williams...

    (Newser) – Details about NBC's Brian Williams investigation are leaking out—for example, news broke that he may have told Jon Stewart a tall tale, and yesterday sources told the Washington Post that the investigation found at least 11 examples of Williams' publicly embellishing a story. Those leaks are likely quite intentional, "longtime broadcast executives" tell Politico Playbook. The network is probably trying to force Williams to resign, sending him the message, "You're dead. Now negotiate," the sources say. That's because it would be more trouble—and possibly more money—to have to fire him, though some NBC insiders say Williams could still...
  • NBC News finds Brian Williams embellished at least 11 times (MASSIVE internal investigation)

    A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe. NBC undertook the examination of Williams’ statement after he apologized in early February for saying on “NBC Nightly News” that a military helicopter in which he was traveling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire. His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six...

    On the Thursday edition of NBC’s Late Night, host Seth Meyers jumped aboard the Clinton campaign’s push to discredit the upcoming book Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer by mocking Schweizer’s background, previous book titles, and chalking the book up to be nothing more than the latest work from “the cottage industry of anti-Clinton books that come out every year.” Dubbed the topic of the latest “A Closer Look” segment, Meyers introducted the book and that it’s been mentioned in the news before making a Game of Thrones reference to go after the GOP: “Now, when a new anti-Clinton book comes...

    Many historians call the Armenian Holocaust the first holocaust of the 20th Century, a dress rehearsal for the Nazi nightmare that followed. This April 24 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of roughly 1.5 million Armenian Christians at the hands of Turkish Muslims. That mass slaughter has gone virtually unreported by the broadcast networks. It was a genocide so awful that candidate Barack Obama promised in 2008 he would acknowledge it as such. “As president, I will recognize the Armenian genocide,” he vowed. Obama has violated that promise every year since. This will be the seventh anniversary that Obama...

    The indignities heaped upon suspended NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams just keep piling up, and by extension, almost certainly ensure he will not return to the anchor chair after his six months in purgatory are complete. The latest was reported Friday by the New York Post: Dozens of residents from Williams’ home town are demanding a tribute sign to their former favorite son be torn down. Thus far, Mayor Sue Skidmore is balking. The town’s welcome sign, which also honors a half-dozen other hometown notables (including Mark Twain), would be too expensive to replace, she says. …
