    ("CBS Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley.CBS) CBS News anchor Scott Pelley threw shade at President Donald Trump on Monday night, following a day of head-scratching comments from the president and his team. "It has been a busy day for presidential statements divorced from reality," Pelley said on Monday's edition of "CBS Evening News."

    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather is teaching an online course in journalism called “finding the truth in the news” at UDemy. Now, he’s taken to Facebook to say that the media, the American people, and the political class has to call out President Trump on his lies. No, this isn’t the Onion.“These are not normal times. These are extraordinary times. And extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures,” wrote Rather. “What can we do? We can all step up and say simply and without equivocation. "A lie, is a lie, is a lie!" And if someone won't say it, those...

    Twitter is a great place for journalists to vent and to leak their liberal bias for all to see. And exactly that happened Tuesday night when CBS Boston Freelance Writer David Leavitt tweeted, “’Trump died sleeping’ #CalmMeDownIn3Words.” Leavitt’s tweet has garnered over 900 retweets, more than 2,300 likes, and almost 2,000 responses, many of them negative. "Trump died sleeping" #CalmMeDownIn3Words — David Leavitt (@David_Leavitt) November 30, 2016 As outrageous has Leavitt’s tweet was, CBS Boston’s public relations kneejerk reaction was flat out ridiculous. The local news outlet responded to more than 100 irate twitter users, first proclaiming, “Mr. Leavitt is...

    Media still doesn't understand: Healthcare, immigration, and tax reform will be front-loaded into his first term. Did you watch 60 Minutes last night? No. Of course you didnt. You have better ways to spend your time than ingesting the antics of a biased, old-media, dinosaur like Lesley Stahl. Still, you might want to know what Donald Trump had to say during his first interview since winning the 2016 presidential election.

    A New York woman who went for a hike in Chappaqua Thursday got a surprise when she ran into Hillary Clinton on the trail. The woman, Margot Gerster, posted about the encounter on Facebook Thursday afternoon, saying she took her daughters for a walk because she has been so heartbroken about the results of the presidential election. Clinton conceded the race at an event in New York City Wednesday morning. As we were leaving, I heard a bit of rustling coming towards me and as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs...
  • John Kasich skewers Donald Trump's "silly" rigged election claims

    Former Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich is hitting back against the claim that the election is rigged -- an allegation that GOP nominee Donald Trump has repeatedly made in recent days. When asked in an interview with CBS This Morning early Wednesday whether he believed Trumps assertion of a cooked election was correct, Kasich replied with an emphatic no. Look, to say that elections are rigged and all these votes are stolen -- thats like saying we never landed on the moon, frankly, said Kasich. Thats how silly it is. The Ohio governor further criticized Trumps position...

In a longer version of the interview that aired Tuesday on CBS This Morning, frequently was not removed.

    Rather appeared horrified by Trumps comment, struggling to explain his shock. By any objective analysis, this is a new low and unprecedented in the history of American presidential politics, he said. Rather challenged the media to hold Trump accountable for his words, urging them to do more to try to shame his supporters. We will see whether major newscasts explain how grave and unprecedented this is and whether the headlines in tomorrows newspapers do it justice, he said. We will soon know whether anyone who has publicly supported Trump explains how they can continue to do.

    Michael Warren at The Weekly Standard notes that somehow, the staff at CBS News doesnt have a nose for news. The hottest breaking story the Wikileaks posting of DNC e-mails proving they were tilted toward Mrs. Clinton and plotting to damage the Sanders campaign got left on the cutting room floor Sunday night. Does anyone believe that CBS News isn't capable of realizing this e-mail portion of Scott Pelley's interview was the hottest, and editing it in instead of out? It almost makes one wonder if CBS felt they had to clear it with the DNC or the...

    During a conversation Wednesday night at a YMCA in New York City, CBS late night host Stephen Colbert interviewed CBS News political director John Dickerson on the race for the White House. At some point in the interview, they took audience questions in which one person asked if Bill Clintons past should affect Hillary Clintons future. Dickerson responded by admitting that it was one of journalists jobs to steer the conversation away from candidates' pasts.

    After the network spent days attacking both North Carolina and Mississippi for passing religious freedom laws it labeled discriminatory, on Thursday, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King touted a major corporate backlash against Mississippi as executives from GE, Pepsi, Levi Strauss, and other companies sent a letter yesterday to the Governor Phil Bryant condemning the new law... In the report that followed, correspondent Mark Strassman promoted one small business owner blasting the measure: In Jackson, Mississippi, Mitchell Moore owns Campbell's bakery. This Republican says the state's religious freedom law is bad for business. Moore worried: ...we now have a target...

    Marco Rubio embarked on something of a post-debate victory tour today, visiting six national morning shows to reflect on last night's proceedings. One of his stops was CBS This Morning, where puzzled host Charlie Rose pressed Rubio about what he meant when he said that last week's Benghazi hearings proved that Hillary Clinton had lied.  The Florida Senator basically reiterated his explanation from last night (via the Weekly Standard): Charlie Rose Sticks Up for Hillary in Interview With Rubio Rose counters with Clinton talking points, muddying the waters by blaming confusing and conflicting intelligence offered by the CIA -- but as they say, that...

    At the top of Thursdays CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley proclaimed that the jailing of Rowan County, Kentucky Democratic Clerk Kim Davis could be the last front in a losing battle against same-sex marriage as she had been refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples since the U.S. Supreme Courts ruling legalizing gay marriage on June 26. While the big three of ABC, CBS, and NBC all led with Davis being jailed and how she had cited her Christian faith in declining to issue licenses, they have yet to mention in any of their coverage in past three...

    Presidential candidate Donald Trump sought to redirect incoming fire at rival Republican Jeb Bush, saying that Bush has a "huge" problem with women and he is by far the better candidate with that demographic. Trump excoriated Bush for saying "I'm not sure we need half a billion dollars for women's health issues" at a speech in Tennessee last week. Bush later said he misspoke, and he was only questioning the federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood. "This is worse than what Romney did when he blew 47 percent of the vote with his ridiculous statements," Trump said, referencing a...

    Dan Rather is coming to your local movie theater. At least the story behind why hes no longer at CBS is. In Truth, Robert Redford plays Rather. Cate Blanchett plays his CBS producer Mary Mapes. In 2004, Rather reported that President George W. Bushs powerful father arranged to keep his son in the National Guard to prevent serving in Vietnam. The report caused such hoo-hah that a treasured 24-year anchorman lost his job. Dan: Ive read the script. Its serious. People behind it do a good job. Its two great actors. You couldnt want for a better cast. Redford playing...
