    American Thinker ^ | 7-2-2020 | Peter Barry Chowka
    Prominent Fox News channel daily anchor Ed Henry was summarily fired yesterday as the #MeToo movement has apparently claimed its latest mark. The announcement came in an internal email to Fox News staff early Wednesday morning, followed by an email to journalists including this author that featured a screen shot of the internal email announcing Henry's "termination." The cause for Henry's dismissal was alleged confirmation after a brief "independent investigation" of "a complaint about Ed Henry from a former employee's attorney involving willful sexual misconduct in the workplace years ago." No further details of Henry's alleged "sexual misconduct" have been...

    0:55 Live on CNN Brasil, reporter Bruna Macedo was robbed at knifepoint during her report on rising water levels from heavy rain at Bandeiras Bridge in Săo Paolo on Saturday. Macedo greeted the man, who pulled out a knife. As Macedo stepped back, the camera cut to the scene of a rain-soaked street. Macedo then handed the robber two mobile phones. After the robbery, host Rafael Colombo said, “It was impossible to understand at the time what was happening if it was a homeless person passing by. But after what happened, we cut the image.” He continued, “He threatened, and...

    President Donald Trump railed against CNN on Twitter Wednesday morning, claiming he cannot “believe how badly” the network performed in the latest ratings figures. The president blamed Chris Cuomo (who he referred to as “Fredo”) as the reason for CNN’s alleged ratings woes, arguing the anchor fo Cuomo Prime Time should be given a “big pay cut.” “Can’t believe how badly @CNN has done in the newly released TV ratings,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “They are so far below @FoxNews (thank you President Trump!) that you can barely find them. Fredo should be given a big pay cut! MSDNC also...

    Facebook on Tuesday banned hundreds of accounts, groups and pages that it said were linked to the Boogaloo movement, a loosely organized extremist collective whose members have occasionally shown up armed to racial justice and anti-quarantine protests around the country. The banned content includes a core set of 220 Facebook accounts, 95 accounts on Facebook-owned Instagram and dozens of pages and groups that Facebook, in a blog post, said posed a "credible threat" to public safety. Facebook said the accounts were "actively promoting violence against civilians, law enforcement, and government officials and institutions."

    WarnerMedia said Monday it will sell the iconic CNN Center in downtown Atlanta, but that it doesn’t mean the network will abandon the city. The network will consolidate its Atlanta workforce in a series of offices across town, the same office campus where CNN was first located upon its founding by Ted Turner in the early 1980s. “Downtown Atlanta has seen great investment and is quickly becoming an entertainment destination,” Pascal Desroches, chief financial officer at WarnerMedia, said in a memo to staff. “The CNN Center is of great value to a third party that specializes in such developments.” The...

    The landmark CNN Center building in downtown Atlanta may soon have a new owner, though CNN employees will remain there for at least a few more years. AT&T, which owns CNN as a result of its 2018 acquisition of Time Warner, has either already agreed to sell or plans to sell the CNN Center, according to an internal company memo sent on Monday. WarnerMedia, the subsidiary of AT&T that operates CNN, will lease back the building from its new owners for at least five years.

    CNN ^ | 06/29/2020 | Carl Bernstein
    In hundreds of highly classified phone calls with foreign heads of state, President Donald Trump was so consistently unprepared for discussion of serious issues, so often outplayed in his conversations with powerful leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan, and so abusive to leaders of America's principal allies, that the calls helped convince some senior US officials -- including his former secretaries of state and defense, two national security advisers and his longest-serving chief of staff -- that the President himself posed a danger to the national security of the United States, according to White House...

    Some GOP operatives are wondering if the president could drop out of the presidential race if his poll numbers don't improve. A stretch of lackluster polling for President Trump has some Republican operatives nervous about the president’s reelection prospects in November – with some even floating the possibility for the first time that Trump could drop out if his poll numbers don’t rebound. “It’s too early, but if the polls continue to worsen, you can see a scenario where he drops out,” one GOP operative who asked to remain anonymous told Fox News. Trump’s poll numbers in recent weeks have...

    You likely won’t hear a single peep about him from the likes of CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon and Brian Stelter, but early Tuesday morning a retired black St. Louis police who’d lived a righteous life and given back to his community was reportedly murdered in cold blood while defending a friend’s pawnshop from one of the left’s beloved looters. One of the first people to bring the death of David Dorn, 77, to the wider public attention’s was President Donald Trump, who tweeted the following late Tuesday, long before the national media picked up the story the following morning:

    President Trump removed Sunday his retweet of a protest video that showed a supporter yelling “white power,” a comment that the White House said he never heard. “President Trump is a big fan of The Villages. He did not hear the one statement made on the video,” said White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere. “What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters.” The two-minute video taken at The Villages, a retirement community in Florida, showed anti-Trump protesters yelling at Trump supporters as they rolled by in golf carts decorated with pro-Trump signs and American flags. After...

    Does the BLM agenda have majority support, or just the slogan? After all, their premise is that Biden’s risking everything by only embracing the movement and not the “boldest proposals” of BLM. That might include items like reparations, stripping Confederate names from military bases, and defunding the police.

    CNN White House correspondent John Harwood said President Trump's reelection strategy is to use his fixation on race to rile up white voters about "black and brown people" in the United States. LEMON: The president is downplaying the pandemic as some kids with sniffles and rambling about race and black people thanking him and on and on. I would like to know who those black people are. But, why? Why is he doing this? JOHN HARWOOD, CNN WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT: Don, the president is fixated on two distinct ideas. One is that he had this strong economy that was going...

    The Trump administration doesn't have the authority to divert Pentagon funds to construct additional barriers on the US-Mexico border, a federal appeals court ruled Friday, days after President Donald Trump's visit to a section of the wall in Arizona. In a 2-1 ruling, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals said that the transfer of $2.5 billion circumvented Congress, which holds the authority to appropriate money.

    (CNN)A half dozen new swing-state polls released Thursday morning suggest that not only would President Donald Trump lose if the election were held today, he would lose in a landslide. The surveys, conducted by The New York Times and Siena College, show Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden by double digits in Michigan (Biden +11), Wisconsin (Biden +11) and Pennsylvania (Biden+ 10) and by mid-single digits in North Carolina (Biden +9), Arizona (Biden +7) and Florida (Biden +6). Trump won every one of those states in the 2016 election. Switch them from red to blue and you can quickly...

    On Tuesday night, the FBI concluded there was no hate crime after its investigation into the alleged noose found in the garage stall of NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace. Officials said it was not actually a noose at all but instead a rope used as a garage door pull that had been there since last year. Bubba Wallace responded by giving an interview to CNN’s Don Lemon in which he refused to accept the FBI’s conclusion that this was not a hate crime. Wallace is sticking to his story that it was “a straight-up noose.” Now, Hollywood star James Woods is...

    While I rarely use the term “fake news” in my writing, it really does exist. And once it circulates online, it becomes canonized, fixed in the popular mind of the day as if irrefutable truth. Yet it’s becoming more and more difficult to separate truth from fiction when following the news.You’ll read a juicy headline, promising some bombshell information, only to read the article and say, “That’s it?”You’ll see the sensational title of a video only to watch the video and ask, “Where was the shock and awe?”You’ll see a chyron running across the screen, but it doesn’t match the...

    On May 20, CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" aired one of those jokey interviews between CNN host Chris Cuomo and his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The governor had submitted himself to a coronavirus test on camera. Chris decided to mock the size of his brother's nostrils by unveiling a series of ever-larger Q-Tips (or test swabs) and cracked his brother up. CNN happily posted the fun on YouTube under the headline "Chris Cuomo teases brother Andrew with giant test swab," now at more than 693,000 views. Before that, Chris asked his brother "First of all, is it true that...

    In all his years in auto racing, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace said Tuesday night, he has never seen anything like what he described as a “straight-up noose” that was being used as a door pull in the garage he was assigned last week at Talladega Speedway in Alabama. “I’ve been racing all of my life,” Wallace told CNN's Don Lemon. “We've raced out of hundreds of garages that never had garage pulls like that. So people that want to call it a garage pull and put out all the videos and photos of knots being as their evidence, go ahead,...

    British anti-racism protestors called for the destruction of Egypt's Giza Pyramids on Sunday, after tearing down a statue of a slave trader in the city of Bristol and throwing it in the Avon river, CNN reported Monday. The pyramids have been among the most frequently discussed topics in the UK over the past several hours, inspired by controversy over who built them. Protesters tore down the statue of British slave trader Edward Colston on the second day of protests condemning racism in the UK, part of a response to the killing of George Floyd, an African American man, by a...
