  • NBC News Opinion: Trump's '60 Minutes' interview underscores America's ongoing manterrupter problem

    NBC "News" / Comcast ^ | October 26, 2020 | By Lynn Stuart Parramore, cultural historian
    The entitled male is hard to shut up. Recent displays of infuriating "manterrupting" illustrate how tough it can be to manage the problem. CBS News journalist Lesley Stahl, in her "60 Minutes" interview Sunday with President Donald Trump, was interrupted, talked over, instructed and lectured about how to speak. Despite - or perhaps because of - her unrattled persistence, Trump finally cut her off completely and walked out of the interview early. As every woman who has sat seething through a meeting knows, "manterrupting" is real. Social science studies suggest that men interrupt women 33 percent more than they interrupt...
  • Trump claims wind energy "kills all the birds." Cats and windows are actually much more to blame.

    Cats, glass windows and vehicles: These pose the biggest threats to birds in the United States. But President Donald Trump is continuing to falsely claim that wind turbines are to blame for the deaths of the nation's birds. During Thursday night's final presidential debate between the president and former Vice President Joe Biden, Mr. Trump reiterated his stance against wind energy with a peculiar claim: It "kills all the birds." "I know more about wind than you do," Mr. Trump told Biden when moderator Kristen Welker turned to the topic of climate change. "It's extremely expensive. Kills all the birds....

    CBS News political analyst admits media will focus on coronavirus which is a ‘very bad issue’ for Trump CBS News’ John Dickerson said Friday that the ongoing controversy surrounding a laptop — purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden and that allegedly contained damaging emails and photos of the Democratic presidential nominee’s son — are unlikely to hurt Joe Biden's campaign because he “has an ally in the news cycle.” [Cut] “Joe Biden has an ally in the news cycle, which is, if President Trump tries to shift the turf onto the Biden family, for the purposes of muddying Joe Biden, the...

    President Donald Trump released footage from the CBS 60 Minutes interview after White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Stahl was acting "more like an opinion journalist." "Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS," said the president on social media. "Tonight's anchor, Kristen Welker, is far worse! #MAGA" The video starts with Trump saying he's looking for "fairness" during the interview, as anchor Leslie Stahl preps the president by saying she was going to ask "tough questions." "You don't ask Biden tough questions," said the president. "It's terrible, you know that." Stahl...

    RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation "on Sunday and called out the Presidential Debate Commission for their election interference.  "I think voters are very frustrated by the corrupt debate commission, that they would cancel a second debate," McDaniel told host Margaret Brennan. "I think it feeds in to the belief that this 47 years that Joe Biden has had in DC is again protecting him from facing the voters. And Americans are frustrated that this election commission interfered with our ability to see these two candidates debate."Brennan then repeated Democratic talking points, noting the existence of...

    “Battlestar Galactica” actress and Nxivm devotee Nicki Clyne — the wife of former “Smallville” star Allison Mack — defended the upstate cult Tuesday, saying she wouldn’t trade her experiences in it “for anything.” “It’s very unfortunate the way that the word ‘Nxivm’ has been applied and is now synonymous with the term ‘sexual cult,’ which I don’t even know how to define what that is,” Clyne told CBS’ “This Morning” alongside four other Nxivm members. SNIP Federal prosecutors claimed in 2018 that Mack and Clyne were wed “at the behest of … Keith Raniere” but the two haven’t spoken for...

    White House reporters are used to getting attacked as "fake news" these days, but on Monday several were reportedly "attacked" in a whole new way: by an angry raccoon. In an incident that sparked viral jokes on Twitter, CBS's Paula Reid said a raccoon on the White House lawn had "attacked multiple news crews." "Strong Pawnee vibes at White House this morning as a raccoon attacked multiple news crews on North Lawn. allegedly grabbed pant leg of a photographer & then a corespondent [sic] before being fended off," she tweeted, referring to the fictional town of Pawnee, Ind. from the...

    Back in February of 2016, Amy Coney Barrett did an interview with CBS about filling Supreme Court vacancies. The interview was done shortly after Justice Antonin Scalia passed away and Democrats were pushing for Judge Merrick Garland to be confirmed.

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) signaled he would support a Congressional investigation of senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump’s personal email use during a Tuesday evening interview with CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert. The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump sent hundreds of emails from a personal email address that she shared with her husband and senior White House advisor Jared Kushner. Peter Mirijanian, a spokesperson for Trump’s attorney Abbe Lowell, said the emails almost exclusively revolved around “logistics and scheduling concerning her family.”

    In a letter sent to Congressman Michael Conaway (R-TX) this week, Donald Trump Jr. attorney Alan S. Futerfas, called for an investigation into leaks from the House Intelligence Committee, suggesting the individual who leaked the false WikiLeaks story did so knowingly. But first, here is a recap of the “story.” The mainstream media embarrassed itself once again after it was caught pushing ‘Trump-Russia’ fake news. Both CNN and CBS fell for inaccurate reports alleging a WikiLeaks email was sent to Donald Trump Jr. with an encryption key to access future leaks. However, WikiLeaks had tweeted a link to the information...

    In an attempt on Wednesday to again protect their presidential candidate from himself, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News spiked an interview Joe Biden did the National Association for Black and Hispanic Journalists. In the controversial video, Biden snapped at black CBS correspondent Errol Barnett (who asked about Biden’s mental fitness) and demanded to know, “Are you a junkie?!” Biden’s racist comment was played unedited earlier in the day during CBS This Morning. But as the controversy grew, political correspondent Ed O’Keefe continued his weeks-long efforts to protect and promote Biden by suggesting the junkie comment was directed...

    Joe Biden is pushing back at Republican assertions that he should take a cognitive test to disprove President Donald Trump’s claim that the Democrat isn’t fit for the Oval Office. Biden grew testy when CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee about the matter in a recent interview. “No, I haven’t taken a test? Why the hell would I take a test?” Biden said.

    Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden shrugged off a question Tuesday about taking a cognitive assessment test, which President Trump has challenged him to do — while misrepresenting what the test measures. Joe Biden was asked by Errol Barnett of CBS News if he’d taken a cognitive test during an interview this morning. A flustered Biden responded by asking the black reporter if he’s a junkie. Biden also pulled out his signature “C’mon man” comment used to express outrage at anyone asking a question he won’t answer. In an exchange with CBS’s Errol Barnett during a wide-ranging, multi-moderator interview at a...
