    This afternoon, in a Super Soul conversation at the Apollo Theater, media titan Oprah Winfrey confirmed to Broadway icon Lin-Manuel Miranda that she will not be running for the presidency in 2020. Discussing their social platforms, Miranda confirmed that he would not consider running for public office, after which Winfrey chimed in, "I'M NOT EITHER!" Though the crowd expressed some disappointment at the decision, both stars agreed that they would continue to use their popularity for positive change in the world.

  • Bill Kristol tweets 'I'm With Her' on possible Oprah 2020 bid

    Golden Globes was an indication she’s preparing to run for the White House. Kristol then took-up the hashtag #ImWithHer — once used by supporters of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton — to highlight his support for Winfrey’s worldview. In an email, Kristol said the tweets were "tongue in cheek." "Though if she runs, couldn't she win the Democratic nomination and the general election?" he added. "And wouldn't she be a better president than Trump?"

    NBC deleted a tweet posted during Sunday night’s Golden Globes telecast which appeared to endorse the suggestion made by host Seth Meyers that Oprah Winfrey should be president of the U.S. “Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” NBC tweeted during the comedian’s monologue on Sunday night. […] The original tweet met with outrage from conservatives — including Donald Trump Jr. and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer — as well as members of the media who said it called into question the network’s objectivity. …
  • Elizabeth Warren on Oprah: “I Don’t Know” if America Wants Another Celebrity Billionaire

    Elizabeth Warren’s presidential ambitions could be crushed if Oprah ran for president. Who wants a whiny Warren when you could have an optimistic Oprah? And the addition of Oprah would also significantly dilute the women’s vote that Warren would be counting on. But in the current atmosphere, Warren couldn’t very well criticize Oprah when Alisyn Camerota asked her on CNN this morning to comment a possible President Winfrey. So Warren put on a happy face, gushing about Oprah’s Golden Globes speech, calling her “inspiring” and lauding Oprah’s “leadership.” But then Camerota asked whether America is hungry “for another mega-celebrity billionaire?”...

    Hmmm… you don’t suppose she’s thinking of running for President, do you? Naw. Perish the thought. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) showed up on Sixty Minutes this weekend and was happy to serve up the usual round of hints suggesting some impeachment/removal talk which is always sure to spice up any slow political news cycle. Of course, we’ve had Democrats calling for Trump to resign since before he was even sworn into office, but the reasons change from month to month. So what is it this time? Ah, yes… it’s the #MeToo movement. (The Hill) Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Sunday...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Sunday she believes Congress should hold President Trump accountable for the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him. “I think he should resign, and if he’s unwilling to do that, which is what I assume, then Congress should hold him accountable. We’re obligated to have hearings,” Gillibrand said in an interview with CBS's “60 Minutes.” Gillibrand, who was among the first to call for former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign due to sexual misconduct allegations, was also one of several Democratic senators who late last year said Trump should resign due to sexual...
  • What Was a Member of Clinton's 'Secret Spy Network' Doing While Working for CBS News?

    In March, an investigation by ProPublica and Gawker revealed that a “secret spy network” that was not on the State Department payroll, run by longtime Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal, was “funneling intelligence about the crisis in Libya directly to the Secretary of State’s private account starting before the Benghazi attack.” Now the WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that Tyler Drumheller, the former chief of the CIA’s clandestine service in Europe who was working directly with Blumenthal as a member of Clinton’s spy network, was concurrently working as a consultant to CBS News and its venerable news program 60 Minutes. According to...

    Full title : 60 Minutes claims 74% of “extremist-related killings” in US in last 10 years by “right-wing extremists,” not jihadis This is a completely false statistic, designed to foster ignorance and complacency about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat. And the establishment media repeats it, or variations of it, relentlessly. Here is why it is false: 1. It misleads immediately by covering only the last ten years. Why that period? What changed between 2006 and 2007? Why not go back 20 years? Because then the survey period would include 9/11, and would show Islamic jihad terrorists killing...

In an interview that will be aired Sunday on CBS's "60 Minutes," Officer Dave Newton from the Las Vegas Police Department's K-9 unit said he noticed a note on the shooter's bedside table after officers entered the room. The note was next to one of the windows that Paddock smashed with a hammer to clear an opening to fire into the crowd from...

    Oprah Winfrey convened a group of voters to examine the nation’s bitter political and cultural divide in her first segment as a special contributor to CBS’ “60 Minutes.” Winfrey held a roundtable session with 14 voters from West Michigan, evenly split between Donald Trump supporters and detractors. Winfrey pressed the group on Trump’s track record as President, whether his tweets are “modern presidential,” the need for limitations on free speech, and their perceptions of Trump vs. Hillary Clinton voters.

    Did CBS's 60 Minutes photoshop Steve Bannon into looking like a bleary-eyed drunk in his interview? That's the verdict of a professional photographer, who suspected something off after having seen Bannon in person. The short video Peter Duke made, explaining the photoshopper's art, is a must-see. Duke noted that color correction and grading can be used to make faces look better, but they can also be used to make people look worse. He pulled up some stills from the 60 Minutes interview.

    Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon warned this week that there will be a “civil war” in the Republican Party if GOP lawmakers cave on the repeal of an Obama-era program that gave amnesty to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — would be repealed with a six-month window for Congress to act. The move served to fulfill one of Trump’s signature campaign promises, but both Trump and Republican leadership have indicated a desire to “legalize DACA” as part of a broader immigration...

This is going to take ten, 15, 20 years of relentlessly going after it.”
