    The White House announced Thursday that Bill Shine, former co-president of Fox News, will be joining the administration in a dual role as assistant to the president and deputy chief of staff for communications.

Mr. Shine will serve as Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications,” the statement reads. “He brings over two decades of television programming, communications, and management experience to the role.

    A SENIOR Republican figure has given an extraordinary insight into the complicated mind of Donald Trump and his daily battles with the media and detractors — as well as the clever way he is playing them to his advantage. Dr Jan Halper-Hayes, a former Vice President of Republicans Overseas, and a member of Mr Trump’s transition team, believes people weren’t “connecting the dots” around his presidency. “First you have to listen to him. People take him literally and then they pounce on the moment [of controversy] … But Mr Trump is consistently inconsistent and predictably unpredictable and he told us,...
  • Cuomo Suggests Trump Refused to Lower Flags Because He Hates the Press

    CNN host Chris Cuomo wrapped up the first hour of Prime Time by emphatically ranting about President Trump not ordering American flags be flown at half-staff to honor the five journalists killed during the Capital Gazette shooting. According to his speculation, it was because of Trump’s “insensitivity to the dead” and his hatred for the press. “It's been four days since the most recent mass shooting that robbed this world of five lives, shattered families, and added another layer of shame on all lawmakers for not doing something to stop the damn shootings,” Cuomo began the segment. “So why did...

    When I watch President Trump talk to reporters, it gives me pause to think how rude a man he is as I watch him cut the reporters off and tell them to be quiet. How respectful are you supposed to be to anyone who treats you in such a way? Yet the reporters have jobs to do and a responsibility to their families and the public. I could not help but think of how lost a man Trump is, with a heart of stone, broken into a thousand pieces that only God can put back together again. How sad to...

    The leftist media establishment threw in every propaganda tool they have, from heart-rending videos of children of color behind chain link fences to abundant tears: crying children and MSNBC hosts Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow weeping on air. If only there had been puppies being tortured on the border, those images surely would have been used, pulling out all the stops for visual emotional manipulation. And yet the Rasmussen poll yesterday showed: When families are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States illegally, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for...

    Last week, Trump had a few nice things to say about Drudge, and Drudge prominently posted this on his site. Trump heaps praise on Drudge ReportSo, being a news addict, I've been monitoring Drudge's coverage since the praise, and it sure seems to me that Drudge has lightened up on Trump and started swinging the hammer more the other way. Today's headlines seem overwhelmingly pro-Trump. I'm hoping Matt has seen the light here. It would be good to have him more objective than he has been in the past. Of course, I may also be crazy...

"Drudge is great by the way," Trump said to "Fox and Friends" host Steve Doocy. "Matt Drudge is a great gentleman, he really has ability to capture stories that people want to see."

    “The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania. During her recovery from surgery they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H. (and me) for N.Y. or Virginia, to abuse. All Fake, she is doing really well!” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “Four reporters spotted Melania in the White House last week walking merrily along to a meeting. They never reported the sighting because it would hurt the sick narrative that she was living in a different part of the world, was really ill, or whatever. Fake News...
  • Sarah Sanders Slams the Press: Quite Frankly, My Credibility is Higher Than the Media's

    Press Secretary Sarah Sanders took on a number of questions from the White House press corps Tuesday afternoon about her credibility. Specifically, she was asked about a discrepancy surrounding a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower. Last August, Sanders said on the record the President did not dictate a response to revelations about the meeting. However, a letter written by President Trump's legal team states he did in fact dictate the response onboard Air Force One last year, which was then given to the press."Why should we be able to trust the information we...

    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace cut herself off mid-sentence while reading President Trump’s tweets on-air Friday, calling them "boldface lies." “I’m not reading anymore of this,” Wallace said with a laugh. “These are boldface lies and as his audacity and his sort of fantasies expand, I wonder what role you think the truth plays in this for any of them." Wallace had been reading a series of the president's tweets in which he again attacked the FBI's use of an informant during his campaign, suggesting the agency used a top-secret spy to monitor his team before it began its investigation into...

    It’s often said that the definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results. In the case of President Donald Trump and the media, there really are two sides to this coin. Whenever Trump uses provocative and at times deliberately offensive terminology ― maybe it’s “shithole” or “rapists” or more recently “animals” ― an all too familiar cycle plays out like a rerun of a bad reality-TV show. First, you must remember that Trump is the emotional equivalent of a 5-year-old. Like a child, his actions are driven by positive reinforcement. When Trump talks tough on immigration,...

    During an appearance on CNN's Reliable Sources, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof admitted that the media has an addiction to covering President Trump, leading them to avoid covering other newsworthy topics. He flushed this argument out further in a recent New York Times op-ed titled “Our Addiction to Trump.” Host Brian Stelter appeared to agree with Kristof, declaring that “I'm a Trump addict. I think I’m willing to admit that. I think all roads lead to Trump right now.” Kristof then admitted that he also suffered from Trump Addiction: “My wife and I, we find ourselves, our pillow talk...

    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...

    .The call to the White House comes after ten o’clock most weeknights, when Hannity is over. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, Sean Hannity broadcasts live at 9 p.m. on Fox News, usually from Studio J in midtown, where the network is headquartered, but sometimes from a remote studio on Long Island, where he was raised and now lives. All White House phone numbers begin with the same six digits: 202-456. Hannity calls the White House switchboard, a number listed publicly, and reaches an operator. The operator refers to a list of cleared callers, a few dozen friends and family members...

    CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter kicked off Sunday’s Reliable Sources by complaining about a tweet President put out last week citing a Media Research Center study, which found 90 percent of evening network coverage of the President was negative. Of course, CNN took issue with the facts and put together a lineup of media figures to beat up on the President for criticizing them. Among the group was CNN Chief International correspondent Christiane Amanpour, who wasted no time in lashing out at President Trump and denouncing his favorable attitude towards Fox News. “I have been talking about this ever...

    Karem: One of Trump's supporters could harm a reporter 'to prove their worth to the president' Playboy White House reporter Brian Karem blasted President Donald Trump's continued criticism of the media Wednesday, declaring of himself and the White House press corps, "we are the people." Karem, who also serves as a CNN political analyst, added he was worried one of Trump's supporters would harm a journalist "to prove their worth to the president." Trump aroused the ire of the White House press corps Wednesday morning when he suggested potentially yanking media credentials, calling the press "corrupt" and "Fake News" in...
