    The collapse of the New York Daily News could not happen to a more deserving enterprise. The editors abused their power and debased the public discourse with cover pages that increasingly ridiculed the President of the United States, finally depicting the leader of the free world as a pile of poo poo. I get that they had the right to do that. I vehemently argue against what they did, and now having bored their sugar daddy billionaire, the editors find themselves adrift and unemployed under new owners who will not subsidize their infantile behavior. Staffs at other papers are rallying...
  • 'Conservative' British Newspaper Glorifies Stormy Daniels

    The supposedly conservative Times of London (owned by Rupert Murdoch) has published a rather long article about the Stormy Daniels controversy. Although you'd expect a conservative newspaper to be critical of both Donald Trump and the (former) porn actress, nothing could be further from the truth. The Times clearly has a favorite in this match. And it's not the U.S. president. In the article, one Daniels-admirer after another is quoted. We are told that she's extremely intelligent, clever, and smart. Feisty. She has as thick a skin as anyone. Oh yeah, Stormy Daniels is one tough lady. 'ďShe is basically...

    President Trump on Wednesday spoke with 21st Century Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch about an agreement whereby Fox will sell most of its entertainment assets to The Walt Disney Co. for $52.4 billion. Why it matters: Trump and Murdoch are old pals, but this conversation could raise accusations of political favoritism when it comes to regulatory approvals. Not only for Disney/Fox, but also for AT&T's attempted takeover of Time Warner. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders did not explicitly say that Trump supports the Disney-Fox deal, but did say that he believes it "could be a great thing for jobs." Reality...

    Megyn Kellyís decision to jump from Fox News to NBC resolves one of the last unanswered questions of the Roger Ailes scandal: Would she stay or would she go when her contract ended? With her last show set to air on Friday, Kellyís departure raises a new series of questions about how transferrable her talents are and where Fox News is headed now that the network has lost its biggest star and one of its few hosts with serious mainstream credibility. For Kelly, the jump from a primetime perch at Fox to a multifaceted role at NBC carries a high...

    Donald Trump welcomed Rupert Murdoch and his wife Jerry Hall for dinner at his luxurious golf course in northeast Scotland on Saturday, the final event of a two-day tour of his properties there. Murdoch, 80, arrived at around 5:15 with wife Jerry Hall, 59, a former model who was previously married to Rolling Stone rocker Mick Jagger. The pair rode up the road to the clubhouse in an SUV with Trump himself. The MacLeod House, a restored 15th Century mansion on the grounds of the Trump International Golf Links Scotland, was the site of the meal. After a visit to...

    Realville, as Rush often says, is where he lives. Thatís a place without blinkers or rose-colored glasses. Thatís actually where we all live, though some of us prefer to deny it. That is, until reality bites. Then our wishful thinking or willful ignorance dashes upon the hard rock of unforgiving reality. The crackup always smarts. Thus is the case with the 2016 presidential election. Thereís Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. In other words, thereís Column A and Column B. Thatís the choice. Column C is fairyland. Come November, tens of millions of voters will flock to the polls to choose...

Unfortunately, a lot of Cruz supporters stood with the hoaxer Fields.

    At this point, whatever happens, the GOPís chances of winning this election is at best 25%, if Cruz is the nominee. If Trump is the nominee, that falls to 3% at best. The problem is; Trump wonít win Ö and he wonít let himself lose. If he loses the nomination, I see two possibilities; 1) He immediately endorses his friend, Hillary Clinton. His promises are as genuine as a three dollar bill. 2)He waits until mid-October, when all the ballot papers are printed, and then heíll endorse his friend, Hillary Clinton.

    Donald Trump has claimed †he has the "world's greatest memory," but when it came time this winter to give testimony in fraud cases filed against him and a real estate training program known as "Trump University," he displayed a repeated inability to recall names and faces of instructors he had claimed to have hired personally. "I can't remember that," he said on Dec. 10, when asked by trial lawyers in one of the class-action cases whether he had met one of the instructors in a program that provided training in building wealth through real estate. "The name sounds familiar but...
