  • Lying Brian Williams A Perfect Fit for MSNBC

    Townhall.com ^ | June 21, 2015 | Jeff Crouere
    After an extensive investigation, NBC News finally decided the fate of habitual liar Brian Williams, who has been on an extended suspension since February. In the end, they made a brilliant decision by removing him from the anchor chair at the “NBC Nightly News” and demoting him to MSNBC, their embarrassment of a cable news network. Williams will join other chronic liars, such as the Reverend Al Sharpton, on the cable news network that has turned into a ratings disaster. MSNBC has a pathetic number of viewers for a national news network, usually about 500,000 per night. This is only...

    In a move that will bolster the credibility level of both networks, Brian Williams reportedly is to move from NBC News, where he formerly was anchor, to MSNBC. The New York Times: NBC is planning to announce on Thursday that Brian Williams will not return to his position as the anchor of its “Nightly News” show, four months after the network suspended him for exaggerating his experiences during a helicopter attack in Iraq, according to two people briefed on the decision. Mr. Williams is expected to move to a new role at NBC News, primarily at the cable news...

    The American Family Association's One Million Moms website has launched a petition calling for Fox to halt its plans to air a new television series called "Lucifer" in 2016, saying the program "mischaracterizes" Satan and "mocks the Bible." "The series will focus on Lucifer portrayed as a good guy, 'who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell,' the petition states. (Watch video at link.) The premise of the series, which is based on the DC Comics Series of the same name, is that the protagonist, Lucifer Morningstar, decides to leave Hell and move to Los Angeles, the City...

    ESPN has damaged the credibility of the Arthur Ashe “ESPY” Courage Award by planning to give the award to reality show actor Bruce Jenner for what appears to be nothing more than an elaborate publicity stunt. Jenner claims he’s now a female character called “Caitlyn” but admits he hasn’t had, and doesn’t plan to have, an operation to change his body from male to female....I might let him get away with this farce if there weren’t much better qualified candidates for the award.

    We're all suckers. That's what dawned on me suddenly the other night. I'd just filed a column on how some social conservative writers are responding to Caitlyn Jenner's coming out as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair. I hadn't given in to the sanctimony that's characterized so much of the commentary about Jenner and her transgender struggles, but I did try to explain why many liberals are inclined to refrain from judgment and even to celebrate this watershed moment in American culture. And then it hit me: Like everyone who's talked, written, posted, and tweeted about this event,...

    Trevor Noah, the 31 year-old South African comedian hand-picked by Jon Stewart and Comedy Central to replace Stewart, has a major Twitter problem on his hands. Being shot to superstardom often results in an instantaneous social media vetting, something Noah, Stewart, and Comedy Central were apparently unaware of. ItÂ’s fairly obvious no one in charge vetted NoahÂ’s Twitter feed or they just didnÂ’t care that it is loaded with jokes aimed at gays, Asians, the overweight, and Jews. This revelation is especially interesting after learning that Noah has already trashed America as racist. The hypocrisy of Jon Stewart is just...

In the difference category, last year saw the Season 3 of Girls premiering at 10 PM after the debut of the heavily promoted True Detective.

Walters has since claimed that "Rosie imploded" and has "emotional problems." The road to bringing Rosie back is apparently clearer with Walters off the show and other rumors about the potential replacement of "View" executive producer Bill Geddie. Geddie reportedly clashed...

Add a “rufferee” and a kitty-filled halftime, and every floppy tackle or slobbered-on football inspires an unintelligible burst of baby talk and giggles. That’s the power of puppies! Maybe it’s not for everyone, but those who love it want to keep politics out, and who can blame them? This year, Michelle Obama had to...

Ask yourself what the equivalent would be if directed toward African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians or members of any other ethnic group. When considered that way, Redskins can't possibly honor a heritage or a noble character trait, nor can it possibly be considered a neutral term. It's an insult, a slur, no matter how benign the present day intent. It's fair to say that for a long time now, and certainly in 2013, no offense has been intended. But if you take a...

    This year's bad news for MSNBC has only gotten worse. The "Lean Forward" network has struggled in the ratings since the Boston Marathon bombings exposed the network's glaring weakness when it comes to news gathering. MSNBC had hoped to turn that around by going all-in on with the Zimmerman, but it didn't. Compared to last year in July, MSNBC was down -12% in total viewers and -4% in the 25-54 demo. "Morning Joe" lost -4% of its viewers, -8% in the 25 to 54 demo. Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, and Lawrence O'Donnell all took huge hits over last year. Hayes...
  • (Hollyweird) ‘Two and a Half Men’ Swaps Angus T. Jones with Lesbian Character

    ‘Two and a Half Men’ swaps Angus T. Jones with lesbian character “Two and a Half Men” is about to become “Two Men and a Gay Woman.” Partly as a replacement for Angus T. Jones — whose screen time will be sharply cut after he publicly bashed the show as “filth” last year — CBS’ hit sitcom is going to add a recurring and possibly permanent lesbian character named Jenny. She’s the 21-year-old illegitimate daughter of the late Charlie Harper, who was played by Charlie Sheen, who himself was booted from the show after tangling with his bosses. The role...

    In a first for the Disney Channel, next season an episode of Good Luck Charlie will feature a family with two moms. Producers are currently casting the couple, with production set for next week. The episode will air in early 2014 as part of Good Luck Charlie's final season. Because Good Luck Charlie is coming to a close, the characters are only expected to appear in this one episode. In the storyline, parents Amy and Bob Duncan (Leigh-Allyn Baker and Eric Allan Kramer) set up a playdate for preschooler Charlie (Mia Talerico) and one of her new friends. When the...

    CHILDREN'S NETWORK LAUNCHES TRANSSEXUAL SUPERHERO SHOW Nothing says “child-appropriate material” quite like gender-bending underage superheroes. At least that’s the theory over at the Hub, the network co-owned by Discovery and Hasbro, which is trotting out its latest soon-to-be-dud, SheZow. That show follows the adventures of a 12-year-old boy named Guy who uses a magic ring to transform himself into a crime-fighting girl. Yes, you read that correctly. When Guy says the magic words – “You go girl!” – he becomes SheZow, wearing a purple skirt and cape, as well as pink gloves and white boots. The chief executive of the...

    LOS ANGELES, May 12 (UPI)--Four U.S. TV shows with prominent gay story lines during a record-breaking season for openly gay characters will be cut for the next season, officials said. NBC's "The New Normal" and "Smash" and "Go On" and CBS's "Partners," will get the ax, the Hollywood Reporter said Saturday. Heather Morris, who plays a bisexual on Fox's "Glee," will not be returning next season, the Reporter said. A Hollywood Reporter survey in November discovered that gay characters on TV, including couples on "Grey's Anatomy" and "Modern Family," helped voters to support gay marriage at the polls. "This data...

    Today in show business news: NBC is cleaning house while CBS is adding more clutter, including a Robin Williams/Sarah Michelle Gellar show. Yes, you read that right. More cancellation news from the Peacock as the network gets ready to present its new schedule to advertisers at next week's upfront presentation in New York. Yesterday it was Whitney and 1600 Penn, today it's Matthew Perry's freshman sitcom Go On and Brian Williams's weekly news magazine Rock Center. They are really cleaning house as they do yet another yearly overhaul, hoping that this is the one that works. This leaves The New...
