  • Trump & Palin Preview Worst Ticket Ever

    The Daily Beast ^ | August 29 2015 | Ben Collins
    On her fledgling, and embarrassingly low-tech, network, Sarah Palin interviewed Donald Trump, and managed a feat no journalist has yet. She made it boring.As in-focus civilians flowed up the Trump Tower taking selfies in the background, an inexplicably out-of-focus Donald Trump sought to explain his rising poll numbers on Sarah Palin’s janky new program on an unknown right-wing news network. “We’re bringing back—I use the term again, (as) it hasn’t been used in a long time—the silent majority,” he told Palin at the tail-end of her 10 p.m. newscast, On Point with Sarah Palin, on Friday night. Of course, Donald...
  • Trump Remarks To Jorge Ramos Called 'Hate Speak' By Top Latina Journalist María Hinojosa [VIDEO]

    The Latin Times ^ | August 28, 2015 | Cedar Attanasio
    Donald TrumpÂ’s confrontation with Jorge Ramos at a press conference in Iowa earlier this week confirmed what we already knew about the two men. Romos, a news anchor at Univision and Fusion, can be aggressive with interview subjects and Trump can be rude to reporters. But coverage of the event revealed what many have never acknowledged: a schism between the worldviews of Latino press and their non-Hispanic colleagues. Journalists of all stripes reported the same basic facts: Ramos asked questions about his immigration policies without being called on. Trump allowed* Ramos to be ejected, and later allowed him to be...

    A website for a small cable network that will feature Sarah Palin talking with Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush crashed hours before the interviews were set to take place. Little-known One America News Network acknowledged the outage at 3:45 p.m. PT on Friday, citing widespread anticipation in the interviews. “So much interest in the interview of Donald J. Trump, Jeb Bush, and Ted Cruz tonight by Sarah Palin at 10 pm EST that you crashed the oann.com website! It will be up shortly – Thank you for the interest in One America News Network,” read the post. Despite...
  • Dylann Roof and Vester Flanagan: Compare and Contrast

    Powerline ^ | August 27, 2015 | John Hinderaker
    We now know that Vester Flanagan was a sort of mirror image of Dylann Roof: black instead of white, gay instead of straight, but like Roof a nut with a cause. Like Roof, Flanagan’s cause was race. Flanagan was race-obsessed and, like Roof, wanted to incite a race war. I agree with Hugh Hewitt that it is a mistake to pay attention to “manifestos” left behind by insane killers. It only encourages them. But if we are going to take seriously the ideology of lunatics, it must be a two-way street. Dylann Roof’s racist ideology was taken very seriously,...

    Trump’s in hot water for calling Kelly a “bimbo”.

Move over, Megyn Kelly, America is calling. It doesn’t take a conspiracy theorist to recognize a conspiracy, and as the Kelly File proved lat night, it only takes a single television show.

    We thought the feud was over. We thought wrong. “Fox News host Megyn Kelly is no stranger to Trump’s bullish tactics,” notes the Fusion press release touting Ramos’s guest hit tonight. Indeed. She’s tweaking Trump here, obviously, by giving his immigration nemesis a platform to call Trump a child-deporting fascist and grieve over how his right to grandstand on Trump’s dime was brutally suppressed for five minutes or whatever. Here’s your open thread to gripe, grumble, and groan about the great Fox News/amnesty/anti-Trump alliance. Easy prediction, though: Kelly will go out of her way to challenge Ramos on whether he...

    What does ‘The Best of Enemies’ get wrong? Just about everything, but especially the battle between left and right. I'm disappointed to report that “The Best of Enemies,” the new film about William F. Buckley and Gore Vidal, is the worst of documentaries. I should know—I was acquainted with both men, and neither the individuals nor their philosophies are accurately portrayed. Worst of all, the movie badly misrepresents the very issue it purports to illuminate: the titanic battle between liberalism and conservatism in the middle of the 20th century. From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, as a second-generation neoconservative Democrat,...

    The Astronaut Wives Club, the summer series from ABC that depicted the race to the moon as a kind of “Desperate Housewives of NASA” ended its run Thursday with the episode dealing with the Apollo moon landing and the epic adventure of Apollo 13. What began with soap opera triteness ended in a dash of ugliness. The episode sought to remind the viewer that not everyone regarded the moon landings with awe and wonder. Some reacted to the greatest technological feat in the history of humankind with rage.

    Campbell Brown and Kirsten Powers take on the leftist establishment Democrats are known for many things, but chief among them is the relentless determination to maintain a rigid progressive orthodoxy within their ranks. Bucking that orthodoxy requires character and conviction because those who do can expect a certain level of contempt directed their way from their oh-so-tolerant brethren. Campbell Brown and Kirsten Powers are two women who have demonstrated a willingness to take positions decidedly at odds with the progressive establishment. Brown’s Democratic roots can be traced back to her father, Louisiana Democratic State Senator and Secretary of State James...

You get the real life love story of Chris Pratt, in a case of art imitating life imitating art. You see, Chris Pratt has made the public announcement that from this point forth, he refuses to participate in any movie love scenes. Why? For two reasons. One, he is married to the love of his life, comedy actress Anna Faris so he doesn’t want...

    A funny thing happened to Donald Trump on the way to the first national debate among Republican presidential hopefuls on Fox News. He was transformed from a media-baiting court jester to a legitimate political force. In the process, he cemented his front-runner status among the crowded field of GOP candidates. This was made possible by the cultural phenomenon that is reality TV. Thanks to the rapid blurring of "real reality" with the "scripted reality" of reality TV, debate viewers had no difficulty fully embracing him as another, over-the-top character in the national reality show that is the presidential race.

    Murdoch's message to blunt Trump's rise in the polls came loud and clear over his social media and publishing outlets Rupert Murdoch handed over 21st Century Fox, the conglomerate behind Fox News, to sons James and Lachlan July 1, 2015. James is now CEO and Lachlan executive co-chairman. Last year Murdoch elevated his sons to prominent positions, James to co-COO and Lachlan to non-executive co-chairman, but the turnover of the conglomerate came sooner than expected. For 15 years, Roger Ailes has enjoyed near total autonomy as head of Fox News, but Ailes’ sovereign rule ended abruptly with the move. A...

    The Canadian debate was in sharp contrast to the main Republican debate that saw Fox News in a blatant attempt to take down Donald Trump, especially with Kelly’s “war on women” question Thursday was a busy night. At 5 pm (all times Eastern) the second tier Republican debate took place. Later at 8:50 pm, the debate between the top 10 Republican presidential candidates began. And if that wasn’t enough, for Canadians in general and Torontonians in particular, the Toronto Blue Jays were home to the Minnesota Twins. The Jays have become a lot more exciting to watch after the acquisition...

    Keeping up with The Megyn: Like the government the fawning media of the day tries so hard to emulate, mainstream media has now given itself authority over the masses—including aspiring Republican presidential hopefuls—to which it has no right. Fox News, which came onto the media world as providers of “the fair and balanced” news, are now coming on just like Obama, having proved before 24 million viewers, it’s now going to be their way or the highway. Until We the People find a legal way to get around their destructive polices, they have to put up with Big Government in...

    Struck me as desperate, maybe Karl Rove is spooked- and thinks it's their last chance to slow him down----------------------------------------------------------- I personally don't think Trump has serious, detailed plans for tackling the nation's problems, but as an experienced executive he would likely get the right people in there to put it all together... And he does know how to fix things. I always liked how Trump said some things I wanted to hear -yet never did elsewhere- starting in 2012 ('Take the oil!'). But outside of shaky 'conservative' credentials, I also don't think he's the kind of guy that should be...

That exchange elicited a rather negative response from The Donald (who seems to have a team monitoring the entire planet for any time anyone mentions his name and is never shy about firing back) and the situation has been simmering ever since. That seems to have come to an end last week, when Murdoch reached out to the GOP frontrunner for...

This is a turnaround from the 12-year-old's April endorsement of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. Cruz responded on Twitter saying, "Grateful for your support. Let's #MakeDCListen and break the #WashingtonCartel!" The switch came after Cruz took to the Senate floor on Friday to accuse Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying. According to Cruz, McConnell promised 54 Republican senators that "there was no deal" with senators trying to revive the Export-Import Bank. But Friday, McConnell began procedures...

    Pop stars are definitely not shy about taking sides in American politics, as we saw when artists such as Madonna, Cher, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Beyonce all rallied behind President Obama in his respective campaigns. On their own, singers are just voters. They might not know a whole lot about politics, and you might not care what they think. But a lot of people, especially young people, do. And young people matter. The 2014 midterms saw the lowest youth turnout in 70 years, contributing to sweeping Republican victories a few short years after the youth vote helped President Obama...

    It was in the county of Los Angeles, California. It was Saturday Feb. 7, 2015. At 12:12 P.M. the call came in. ESPY’s future hero then known as Bruce Jenner had been courageously driving along the Pacific Coast Highway at just over 46 mph casually smoking a cigarette like an old movie hero. He was apparently unaware of the danger ahead where some vehicles were stopping at a traffic light. ESPY’s future hero didn’t have to worry. The big Cadillac SUV he was driving would protect ESPY’s hero from injury when he couldn’t stop fast enough to avoid hitting the...

    As a lifelong reader of newspapers, and a devoted follower of the journalism profession, although not a part of it, I am sad to write this.  It's like a eulogy for a body long dead but failed to be given a proper burial.  Or like the M. Night Shyamalan movie "The Sixth Sense," where Bruce Willis' character walks the earth as a dead man until a boy who can see dead people leads him to realize his own fate and depart. Large, centralized news gathering operations are dead.  The New York Times, Boston Globe, Washington Post, USA Today--all the old-line...

    Media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who is considered a conservative kingmaker as the man behind Fox News, took to Twitter Sunday with a swipe at Donald Trump's recent comments on illegal immigration. Trump's campaign to be the Republican presidential candidate has swelled in support and media attention following his controversial remarks about the threat posed by undocumented immigrants in the United States. He sparked outrage by saying that some people crossing the border from Mexico were "rapists" and "criminals." The comments found support among some, but also a pile of criticism. A slew of corporations, including Macy's, NBC and ESPN, responded...

    Donald Trump took his ire toward Mexico to a new dimension as he visited Los Angeles this weekend. During a speech to Hollywood conservative group Friends of Abe last night the GOP presidential candidate said Iraq was a needed buffer against a hostile Iran and that it was wrong for the United States to have invaded Saddam Hussein's fiefdom. "Instead," Trump told the crowd, “we should have invaded Mexico." This was according to an attendee who wishes to remain anonymous.* The remark was greeted with rousing applause, our source said. The real estate mogul also said that, if he were...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday gave what one attendee described as a quintessential Trump speech before a group of Hollywood conservatives — brash, self assured, and plenty of humor. Trump’s appearance before Friends of Abe — a fellowship of showbiz right-of-center professionals — was met with protests outside the Luxe Hotel in Brentwood over remarks he has made about Mexican immigrants. Chanting “Donald Trump has got to go” in English and Spanish, the protesters drew occasional honks from passing cars on Sunset Boulevard, with a heavy presence of Los Angeles Police Department officers on watch. But Trump told...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)It’s true. Black America spends a good amount of time discussing race, thinking about race, experiencing race, and living through the trauma these conversations and incidents based on race bring. No surprise there — our Black and Brown skin has for so long bound us to a contentious relationship with a country that created a system of privileges and rules that disenfranchise and oppress minorities. That’s true, too. And although conversations about race have dominated media and social media, although Black and Brown people are still being unjustly treated or killed, and although a gunman stormed a historically Black church...

    As I protested Thursday afternoon in front of the Old Post Office Pavilion on Pennsylvania Ave in Washington D.C.—the building Donald Trump is turning into a hotel a few blocks away from another historical building he wants to take over, the White House—I thought about a meeting I had with Trump at his headquarters in New York two years ago to discuss my organization’s programs, including the Hispanic Heritage Awards. Once the meeting was set, I called immigration activists Estuardo Rodriguez and Gaby Pacheco to gather some young DREAMers to crash the meeting and try and change The Donald’s mind...

    Last night, The Washington Post reported that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called Now, Trump disputed some of the reporting, of course, saying that Priebus at worst gently nudged him.Well, on Fox News this afternoon, Gretchen Carlson called out Priebus and the RNC, defending Trump and saying, “The last people who should be telling him to simmer down on his messaging are those who haven’t yet figured out how to message.”She said the GOP has done a poor job of messaging in the past few years, constantly losing to President Obama, and so said the RNC shouldn’t be pressuring...

    I don’t know anything about how to go about getting people to participate in a boycott of advertisers. However, I think it would be a great idea to boycott ESPY advertisers considering the extreme disrespect Disney / ESPN has shown to real heroes by using the Arthur Ashe courage award for a publicity stunt.

    Hillary Clinton supporter Jeb Bush says he will not kowtow to conservatives. “Yes, I got a lot of good advice from the last candidate who I wish was president right now, the last Republican candidate, and he validated a belief that I have which at some point we have to start campaigning in a way that is beyond the base. I think you have to be respectful of conservatives and you have to campaign hard, convince thatm that you’re the guy that can unite the party, but there also always has to be an eye on the ball on the...
