    The Daily Mail ^ | 11/21/2016 | David Martosko,
    Donald Trump will meet Monday afternoon with executives and on-air anchors from the five largest television networks in the United States. The get-together wasn't mentioned in a mid-morning conference call the presidential transition's media go-betweens held with reporters. CNN reported that it was organized by Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to Trump who served as his campaign manager. Representatives from CNN, Fox News, NBC, ABC and CBS will file in to Trump Tower for the sit-down with Trump and Conway. The entire meeting will be conducted 'off the record,' meaning attendees must promise not to report on what is said...

    An award-winning Iranian nuclear scientist, who disappeared last year under mysterious circumstances, has defected to the CIA and been resettled in the United States, according to people briefed on the operation by intelligence officials. Shahram Amiri, a nuclear physicist in his early 30s, went missing last June three days after arriving in Saudi Arabia on a pilgrimage, according to the Iranian government. The officials were said to have termed the defection of the scientist, Shahram Amiri, "an intelligence coup" in the continuing CIA operation to spy on and undermine Iran's nuclear program. A spokesperson for the CIA declined to comment....

    CNN has formally severed ties with commentator Donna Brazile, a spokesman confirmed to Mediaite Monday. CNN and ABC News had both suspended Brazile after she was tapped to serve as acting DNC head following the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. In theory, that arrangement was only temporary, but CNN made it permanent as late as two weeks ago in the wake of hacked emails showing she provided questions in advance to the Hillary Clinton campaign.

    Former Bill Clinton operative turned Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos grilled Donald Trump about his campaign against the wife of his old boss. The businessman brought up Stephanopoulos’s shady connections, including $75,000 in secret donations to the Clinton Foundation. The journalist demanded, “When you look back over the sweep of this campaign going back to last June is there anything you regret?” Trump shot back: “I'd love to have done, in life, certain things over I guess. And you would have too.” The candidate added, “You would love to have not contributed to the Clinton Foundation as an example....

    The latest ABC News poll has Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by 12 points. What the media will not tell you is that 9% more Democrats than Republicans were sampled in the poll. “Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.” GOP primary turnout was up 62% this year while Democrat primary turnout was down 21% this year.

Clinton laughed off the question by ABC Action News reporter Sarina Fazan, who said some doctors had called on her to take "neuro-cognitive" tests. “I am very sorry I got pneumonia," Clinton said. "I am very glad that antibiotics took care of it and that’s behind us now. I have met the standard that everybody running for president...

    A TV anchor started his broadcast Sunday with a startling statement. “Good evening,” said WABC weekend anchor Joe Torres. “We begin with Hillary Clinton’s death.” Torres didn’t correct himself, but the broadcast continued on to report Clinton’s health troubles at Sunday’s 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York. The Democratic presidential candidate was dehydrated standing outside on the hot day, her campaign said, and video taken of her leaving the site early showed her needing assistance to get into a van. The station told TVSpy that the mistake was accidental. “During a live introduction to a story about the health of...

    Martha Raddatz, who was hosting ABC's This Week this morning, had a chance to score a major scoop but she blew it by failing to ask a very obvious followup question to former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. You can see the original question posed by Radddatz at the 3:32 mark of the video below about Panetta having supported a small number of American troops remaining in Iraq and where then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stood on this. This was followed by Panetta completely dodging the question on Clinton's position. However, instead of pressing Panetta on this, Raddatz avoided the...

    abcnews.com ^ | June 26, 2016 | Gary Langer
    Hillary Clinton surged to a broad advantage against Donald Trump in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, capitalizing on Trump’s recent campaign missteps. Two-thirds of Americans see him as biased against groups such as women, minorities or Muslims, and a new high, 64 percent, call Trump unqualified to serve as president. These and other doubts about Trump have produced a sharp 14-point swing in preferences among registered voters, from +2 points for Trump in mid-May, after he clinched the GOP nomination, to +12 points for Clinton now, 51-39 percent. That snaps the race essentially back to where it was in...

    Newly released State Department emails help reveal how a major Clinton Foundation donor was placed on a sensitive government intelligence advisory board even though he had no obvious experience in the field, a decision that appeared to baffle the department’s professional staff. The emails further reveal how, after inquiries from ABC News, the Clinton staff sought to “protect the name” of the Secretary, “stall” the ABC News reporter and ultimately accept the resignation of the donor just two days later. Copies of dozens of internal emails were provided to ABC News by the conservative political group Citizens United, which obtained...

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...

"We see it right here in Mississippi -- just two weeks ago -– how swiftly progress can hurtle backward," Obama said. "How easy it is to single out a small group and marginalize them because of who they are or who they love." Obama made the comment following an impassioned revival of the state and university's stained history with regard to civil rights. "So we've got to...

    Less than a year ago, ABC's George Stephanopoulos admitted that he had made $75,000 of undisclosed contributions to the charitable foundation/campaign operation of his former employers, Bill and Hillary Clinton. He then personally pledged he wouldn't moderate a Republican primary debate this year. But ABC News later issued a statement of support for Stephanopoulos, insisting it wouldn't take punitive action against him. It's bad enough that ABC never even considered removing this self-evident Clinton loyalist from his "objective" political coverage position. They even allow him to conduct softball interviews with Hillary Clinton, and won't even insist on reminding viewers of...

Stephanopoulos attempted to find out how Trump would carry out his plan. Specifically. Did I say it was like wrestling an eel? It is more like punching a pillow. "You have...

    Two weeks ago, conservatives were calling for George Stephanopoulos to recuse himself from all coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign, on the grounds that the ABC News anchor had failed to inform viewers of his financial donations to the Clinton Foundation.

ABC renewed Stephanopoulos’ contract last year for more than double what NBC paid Brian Williams … and it’s working out just as well: ABC has plenty of reasons to be freaking out over the George...
