    If you are a Trump voter who thinks that much of the press is reflexively hostile to the president, 300 of America's leading newspapers want you to know that you might be on to something. In a self-defeating act of journalistic groupthink, America's editorial pages launched a coordinated protest against President Trump on Thursday, all running negative editorials attacking the president over his #FakeNews rhetoric. The Boston Globe, who organized the effort, calls it "educating readers" about "an attack on the First Amendment." But to the average American, seeing an editorial in their local paper trashing Trump is called "A...

    Beginning with Friday’s evening newscasts and going through Monday’s morning shows, the broadcast networks of NBC, ABC, and CBS provided an astonishing 93 minutes of air time to promoting former Trump White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s new tell-all book blasting the administration and accusing the President of being a “racist.” While hosts and correspondents repeatedly acknowledged the Apprentice star’s major credibility problems, that didn’t stop them from providing the avalanche of coverage. The total was compiled by looking at the evening and morning newscasts Friday night through Monday morning, as well as the Sunday political roundtable shows, NBC’s Meet the...

    Some of you need to cease the denial and accept the harsh reality that the left hates you. It’s a fact, as much as the liberal gaslight gang and the conserva-sissy weakhearts deny it. You can tell that leftists hate you by the way that leftists tell you that they hate you.Take Sarah Jeong, please – hey, the New York Times was happy to get this bitter creep onboard because of her history of virulent racism. The Times saw her hate as a plus, not a negative, an asset, not a liability. You can’t draw any other conclusion – if you...

    Murphy Brown creator Diane English says she may need to get security protection as she works on the return to CBS of the biting political comedy series. I might have to have some protection, English told reporters in a scrum after her shows Q&A panel at TCA. Im not kidding.

    Its really truly happening: Patrick Stewart has been cast in a new Star Trek series. Stewart will reprise his iconic character, Jean-Luc Picard, for a CBS All Access series that will tell the story of the next chapter of Picards life. Stewart himself just announced the news in a surprise appearance at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention. I will always be very proud to have been a part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course,...

    WFAN was run like a frat house, with drinking by employees starting as early as 10 a.m. and executives condoning buying prostitutes for ad clients, according to a shocking lawsuit filed Wednesday by a 40-year-old former CBS Radio ad exec. Lauren Lockwood, who worked at WFAN from 2006 until last summer, claims the stations executives tolerated a hostile work environment that subjected her to sexual harassment. On various occasions, WFAN host Joe Benigno pressured her into having a threesome, the lawsuit, filed in Brooklyn state court, claims. Benigno whispered in [Lockwoods] ear about having threesomes with him and his wife...

    Michael Morell, former acting head of the CIA, became a political animal in August 2016 when he endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. This month, he came to grips with the consequences of that decision -- that it might have played into President Donald Trump's distrust of the intelligence community. It is possible, he told the Review Journal, "I played a role in that." Back to last year. In an opinion piece in The New York Times, Morell not only endorsed Clinton, he also warned that, to the eyes of an intelligence analyst, candidate Trump could be considered "an unwitting agent...

    In her first press conference since a self-identified socialist defeated one of her top deputies in a primary, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that socialism is not ascendant in the Democratic Party. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rocked the political world on Tuesday night when she defeated New York Rep. Joseph Crowley in a Democratic primary. Crowley, a longtime congressman who was touted as a possible successor to Pelosi, has been in office since 1999 and risen to the fourth-highest post in the Democrats' House leadership. Ocasio-Cortez is a 28-year-old member of the Democratic Socialists in America, and the political left...

    CBS This Morning hosts on Thursday were very worried about the impact of Anthony Kennedys retirement from the Supreme Court, fretting that abortion rights are doomed with the vacancy being the final nail in the coffin. Co-host Gayle King forgot to use the pretense of some say and instead asked the Federalist Societys Leonard Leo: But should we be worried about Roe v. Wade going away? Speaking of Trump, she added: He did say in a debate that he wanted to pick someone who would eliminate Roe v. Wade, which is why people are a little nervous. Some people are...

But viewers at home didnt hear the expletive thanks to the 10-second delay CBS had on the live telecast and the quick reflexes of a CBS Program Practices executive monitoring the show back at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York. CBS confirmed that De Niro went off script in his remarks as he took the stage to introduce Bruce Springsteens performance on the Tony telecast.

    CBS This Morning gave generally fair coverage today to yesterdays shooting at an Oklahoma City restaurant in which an armed citizen shot and killed the assailant. But CBS couldnt help but let the MSMs fixation on gun control creep in. At the end of the segment, the CBS reporter on the scene, David Begnaud, said: We asked the police if that armed civilian had a permit to carry his weapon, and they told us they didnt know but they were looking into it.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
