    The three networks on Thursday night immediately derided Donald Trumps dark speech as one coming from a vengeful demagogue. On NBC, Tom Brokaw allowed that some will see Trump as on a white horse who will lead them to some kind of sanctuary and then pull the drawbridge up. But he sneered, Others looking in are going to see someone they will only think as a demagogue of some kind. Chuck Todd labeled, I thought it was an extraordinarily dark speech. Republican operative Nicolle Wallace lamented, We are now represented as a party by a man who believes in protectionism,...

    A mother speaking out about her son’s death is “inappropriate” for the RNC, according to The View’s Joy Behar. But will she say the same about the DNC’s speakers? On Tuesday, The View ladies discussed the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. At one point, co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked the panel about an RNC speech delivered by Patricia Smith, “a mom who lost her son in Benghazi [and] still blames Hillary for her son's death.” Fox News analyst Jedediah Bila began by defending Smith: I think she feels that Hillary Clinton – you know, and she said this, wrote...

    In the moments following FBI Director James Comeys announcement on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges for her private e-mail servers scandal, the cast assembled by ABC News hailed the extraordinary decision as a momentous day signaling that a cloud is lifted for Clinton to continue on with the presidential race and President Obama to give his own thoughts on the matter. Senior Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas dubbed Comeys recommendation an extraordinary decision and blistering for Clinton but emphasized the early spin that they looked at precedent and found no case like it where prosecutors would have...

Clinton was interviewed by the FBI for three-and-a-half hours as the probe into her private server and potential mishandling of criminal investigation at the State Department entered its final stages. Vega said the interview happening on a Saturday morning of a holiday weekend was part of the campaigns strategy to limit the bad publicity. There were no...

Ill leave that to the American people to decide. This Week host George Stephanopoulos, a Hillary lackey, then pointed out 64% of Americans dont think Trump is qualified. Hillary Clinton, a serial liar, is under investigation by the FBI and was instrumental in the calamity we see today in the Middle East but McConnell thinks Trump is not qualified? Seriously?

More than 100 pages of documents were released to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Among them was a Sept. 14, 2012, email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications.

"This goes on and on and on. We're reaching the final stages of a primary," she said on ABC's "This Week" in an interview that aired Sunday. An internal watchdog determined in a report sent to Capitol Hill last week that Clinton and her senior aides didn't comply with the State Department's record-keeping policies. The report said Clinton never requested permission to use her personal server, and it "would not" have been approved, in part,...

Former ABC correspondent John Miller, testifying at the first Guantanamo war crimes trial, also recalled comparing bin Laden with U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt as he made small talk during filming of the May 28, 1998, interview at an Afghanistan mountain hideout. It was a rare opportunity for an American journalist, and Miller detailed a movie-thriller route to get to bin Laden, complete with...

Tonight, ABCs Scandal had two separate characters rant about "white men" and "country people." For those who arent unfamiliar with Scandal, GOP presidential primary candidate Hollis Doyle (Gregg Henry) is a character intended to spoof Donald Trump. The similarities in this particular show are endless: The opposing campaigns despair that no matter what he does America loves him, an ex-wife claims he raped her, hes asked to...

    Here’s what is most unusual about this week in news coverage of the GOP nomination drama: what’s not the top story of the week. On April 13, ABC’s World News Tonight correspondent Tom Llamas devoted most of that night’s report to chilling death threats against the Colorado state Republican party chairman, angered at how Donald Trump failed to win any delegates at the weekend party convention. Besides that one report, and two minor mentions (one on ABC’s Good Morning America and on Thursday’s CBS Evening News, that’s all the broadcast news attention given to reports of actual death threats in...

    I would like to know if any FReepers can provide links to the following videoclips: 1) Very old Larry King TV Show interview in which the very young Donald Trump starts off by insulting Larry King about his bad breath; 2) The speech (?) in which Trump reportedly made an insinuation that Ben Carson is a child molester; 3) The part of the South Carolina TV debate in which Trump somehow blamed George W. Bush for 9-11; 4) The statement (speech/interview/Twitter post?) blaming Cruz for Obamacare by endorsing John Roberts candidacy on the SCOTUS. Some or maybe even all of...

    The America we live in, our nation, our people, our society, is not the America most of us were born in at all. The uniquely American forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the football games, the local bars, the movies, the concerts, and the holidays. But the spirit, which most of us never noticed because we made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the forms, has been fundamentally transformed. The transformation has occurred through the slowly creeping separation of not only the government from the people, but the people themselves from their country. It has taken place...

    On this weekends broadcast of Fox News Sunday, Washington Post columnist George Will questioned Republican presidential candidate Donald Trumps pro-life stance. Will said, Well, theres a policy dimension and a process dimension to running for president. On the policy side, on abortion, he was asked a question that every novice Republican candidate knows hes going to be asked. And he didnt have an answer. Now, thats partly because hes only been pro-life for about 15 minutes.

    On Saturday, all three broadcast morning news shows talked about the National Enquirer allegations against GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz, allegations for which there is still no on-the-record source or any other supporting evidence. CBS, which took the high road and skipped the tawdry allegations on Friday’s Evening News, this morning offered a 68-second item read by CBS This Morning: Saturday co-anchor Anthony Mason, which cast the matter as a “he said, he said,” between the two candidates. ABC’s Good Morning America offered a full report from weekend political correspondent Devin Dwyer, in which Dwyer unfortunately cast both Cruz and...

    Hillary Clinton says barring any national security risk, she would like to open up the government files on Area 51 to the public if she is elected president. I would like us to go into those files and hopefully make as much of that public as possible, she told Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night on his late night ABC talk show. If theres nothing there, lets tell people theres nothing there. When Kimmel followed up by asking what she would do if she discovered there was actually something alarming in the files, Clinton replied: Well, if there is something there, unless...

    Actress Martha Plimpton, who plays the mother Eileen O’Neal on ABC’s “The Real O’Neals,” recently wore an “abortion dress” to promote her views on abortion, according to the Independent Journal.
