    After years of misleading its audience with fake news, 35 percent of CNN’s primetime audience up and left ...While Fox News is growing, the openly left-wing MSNBC is also shrinking, but nowhere nearly as much as CNN. Fox grabbed an astonishing average of 2.4 million viewers. CNN could not even hold a million total primetime viewers and bottomed out with an average of just 937,000. MSNBC cleared a little over 1.7 million. In total day viewers, Fox News was number one in all of cable, with an average hold of 1.5 million viewers.
  • Fake News -- the Mainstream Media Version

    05/22/2018 5:12:48 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 18 replies ^ | May 22, 2018 | Bernard Goldberg
    Long before fake news became a hot topic, liberals in the mainstream media were practicing their own special brand of fake news. They weren't misleading the public for malicious reasons; it was quite the opposite. They were simply showing off their humanity. The best examples of this fake news-for-a-good-cause go back to the 1980s, when two of the biggest stories in America involved the rise in homelessness (in the age of Reagan) and the national scare over a new disease called AIDS. I was a correspondent at CBS News at the time and I witnessed firsthand how -- and why...
  • Angry Scarborough: “Change the Channel” if You Don’t Like our One-Note Trump Hatred

    Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: “Jesus says love, because hate destroys the hater as well as the hated.” On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough gave us a glimpse of just how corrosive hate can be. As the show was going to a break, a visibly angry Scarborough, reacting to recent criticism of the show’s one-note Trump-hating samba, railed at his own audience: “If you’re thinking: it’s just one note. Morning Joe is just one note. Yeah! Yeah, guess what? A fire department has one focus when there’s a four-alarm fire. All right? So if you don’t want to hear...

    Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd. — Bertrand Russell Belonging is a drug and we are all addicted to it. When a “like” validates our social worth, or we ignore work to respond to our most recent email, we confirm our identity in a tribe. Our brains reward the recognition with a dopamine rush. For years, I started my day with a dopamine hit at six a.m. from Morning Joe. -snip- It was great television. At its best, TV is an ensemble medium, an instrument...
  • Curtain Falls For Good on NBC's Extremely Liberal High School Drama 'Rise'

    05/17/2018 2:18:42 AM PDT · by Enterprise · 21 replies ^ | May 16, 2018 | Dawn Slusher
    “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” This famous quote attributed to Dr. Seuss applies to many things in life, but NBC’s high school drama Rise is not one of them. If anything, we should cry because it happened, and smile now that it is finally over. Unlike the show’s title Rise, every episode in this debut season continued to sink to new lows, so we can also smile over the news that the curtain has been lowered for good on the series. The show takes place at Stanton High School, where theater teacher Mr. Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor),...
  • WH Officials Reportedly 'Trick' President Trump Into Watching Fox & Friends Over Morning Joe

    In a bygone age, during the days of Chief-of-Staff Reince Priebus Press Secretary Sean Spicer, President Donald Trump was someone very different – someone who watched (gasp!) CNN and MSNBC. At least, that’s according to new reporting from New York Magazine‘s Olivia Nuzzi, who writes that White House officials concocted a plan to keep the volatile president on track by changing his diet – his television diet, that is. Trump would reportedly work himself into a tizzy watching Morning Joe and New Day, tweeting all manner of disgruntled miscellany before an 11 A.M. briefing, in which he would review the...

    Anderson Cooper is a single man. The CNN anchor and his boyfriend, Benjamin Maisani, have called it quits after nine years together. “Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago,” Cooper, 50, said in a statement to Us on Thursday, March 15. “We are still family to each other, and love each other very much. We remain the best of friends, and will continue to share much of our lives together.” The best of friends, indeed. The journalist and the 45-year-old nightclub owner, who were first linked in 2009, attended a benefit for the Windward School in New York...

    Academy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel fired off a defense tweet on Tuesday after President Donald Trump trolled Hollywood over the Oscar’s historically low ratings. “Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY,” President Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday morning, mocking Sunday night’s telecast of the 90th annual Academy Awards, of which viewership plunged 20 percent from last year to a record-low 26.5 million. “Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore – except your President (just kidding, of course)!” the president added. Kimmel, apparently bothered by Trump’s trolling, delivered a response. “Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY.” the Live host tweeted in a...

    The ratings for Sunday night’s telecast of the 90th annual Academy Awards collapsed by a whopping 16 percent, which would mean an all-time low, according to early estimates. Variety reports that the “8 p.m.-11 p.m. portion of ABC’s telecast averaged an 18.9 household rating and 32 share in Nielsen’s metered market overnight ratings … That’s down about 16% from the 22.5/37 rating generated by the 2017 Oscars.” According to Deadline, the “18.9 appears to be an all-time low for the Oscars, below the previous low ratings point for the Oscars, logged with the 2008 telecast (21.9).” The ratings will be...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Trump, as only he can do it, got onto his Twitter account Tuesday evening and trolled the fake journalists at CNN and MSNBC who helped promote one of the fake Russian-staged anti-Trump rallies on November 12, 2016: “Bad ratings @CNN & @MSNBC got scammed when they covered the anti-Trump Russia rally wall-to-wall. They probably knew it was Fake News but, because it was a rally against me, they pushed it hard anyway. Two really dishonest newscasters, but the public is wise!” Never. Stop. Tweeting....

    Singer Ginuwine has sparked a heated debate on Twitter after a recent episode of Celebrity Big Brother UK. In the latest episode, Ginuwine seemingly rejected fellow housemate India Willoughby. The controversy stems from a conversation between Willoughby and the “Pony” singer, in which she asked whether he would date a trans woman. “You would date me, yeah,” Willoughby, who is a trans woman herself, asked. “Not if you were trans,” Ginuwine replied. After Ginuwine replied that he would not date a trans woman, Willoughby attempted to plant a kiss on the singer. When her advance was rejected, Willoughby stormed off....

    The Grammys in New York took a weird turn this morning as the nominations were a shocker: Ed Sheeran’s best selling “Divide” did not get an Album of the Year nod, neither did albums by Lady Gaga or Kesha. Instead, the Grammys went mostly for R&B and rap: Jay Z, Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino.... ...all the acts they want on the show– the white pop acts– have been relegated to the Pop Vocal category... How the Grammys became the R&B/Hip Hop Awards will be the subject of much discussion at Black Rock today. Their traditional country nominee...

    I love Joy Reid. Whenever I need a break from the monotonous reporting of corrupt Democrats rigging elections for Hillary Clinton, I take a little peek over at the host of MSNBC's AM Joy’s Twitter page. In part because she seems like a genuinely nice person, albeit moronic. But also because the left-leaning host is typically spouting off some ignorant statement with a child-like curiosity to her #reiders- the self-appointed term she designated for her fans and followers. I enjoy reading what the left is thinking or rather feeling,  as most of the time it appears no critical thinking is occurring...

    Comedian and daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is receiving some backlash from fans after a joke about Katy Perry was taken as sexist. The star courted outrage on Wednesday after dedicating a tweet to the “Roar” singer on her birthday. “Happy birthday, @KatyPerry! It’s time to bring out the big balloons!” the star wrote over an image of her gawking, mouth agape, at Perry’s breasts.

    The season 2 premiere of Disney Channel's coming-of-age series "Andi Mack," starring Peyton Elizabeth Lee, will feature a first for the channel when Joshua Rush's character, Cyrus, discovers he has feelings for a male classmate, played by Asher Angel. Ultimately, Cyrus comes out as gay to one of his best friends, Buffy, played by Sofia Wylie. Her response, according to Disney, "makes for positive role models for kids and adult viewers." "'Andi Mack' is a story about tweens figuring out who they are," Disney Channel said in a statement on Tuesday. "Everyone involved in the show takes great care in...
