    The Secret Service said Wednesday that an agent who blocked a reporter attempting to question senior White House adviser Jared Kushner was reacting to "an abrupt movement." "The actions of the special agent in this incident were in no way intended to impede those rights or the media’s access to a Secret Service protectee," the Secret Service said in a statement. "The actions were taken solely in response to an abrupt movement by an unknown individual who later identified themselves as a member of the media," the agency added. The Secret Service reviewed the Tuesday incident in which CBS News...

    Todd prefaced his comments this way: “I want to play a quick montage. Beto O'Rourke, the Bobby Kennedy of millenials, decided to go negative.” . . CBS in early October hyped O’Rourke as a “rising star.” Sadly for journalists, the “rising star” is now losing by an average of seven points. Over on MSNBC, Wednesday, Eddie Glaude Jr predicted an O’Rourke victory, adding, “If not, then I'll just reach for my Jamieson bottle.”
  • Stephen Colbert: Trump’s Jokes About Warren’s DNA Test A ‘Racist Tirade’

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert described President Donald Trump’s jokes about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a “racist tirade” amid the ongoing drama over her supposed American Indian ancestry. On Tuesday, Warren released test results indicating that she had a maximum of 1.6 percent “Mesoamerican” heritage, which is far below the minimum requirement to claim membership of most Native American tribes. “After years of mocking Elizabeth Warren, clearly the President must have had a lot to say about these test results,” Colbert said, before playing a clip of Trump saying he did not care about the test results. “You care!...

    The President talked over Lesley Stahl in a relentless blast of rhetoric that seemed more rally than interview ......the President’s interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief enemy, the media, while airing his own points at ceaseless length..... Lesley Stahl’s interview with Trump was an undeniable get; he’d been scarce on mainstream media since around the time he appeared on tape with NBC’s Lester Holt and indicated he’d fired former FBI Director James Comey in part due to the Russia investigation. But the interview seemed governed by two motives, both of...

    Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) attempts to procure a nuclear disarmament deal between India and Pakistan. Before the talks even begin, the India Prime Minister and Foreign Minister are apprehensive over working with the United States as “a country that has repeatedly subjected us to barbaric terrorist attacks and endless wars” with a “despicable record on human rights and racism.” Elizabeth and her CIA Special Activities Division head, husband Henry (Tim Daly), for their part, don’t disagree with that description.

    In a social media post on Saturday, a writer for CBS's "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" seemingly celebrated the damage done to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's reputation during his bruising and bitterly partisan confirmation battle. "Whatever happens, I'm just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh's life," the writer, Ariel Dumas, posted on Twitter. Dumas later briefly made her account private, preventing others from viewing her posts without her approval. Her tweet came as the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by a 50-48 vote, with Republicans saying that the several allegations of decades-old sexual misconduct brought against him...

    A writer for CBS's "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Sunday apologized for her "sarcasm" in a deleted tweet about newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Ariel Dumas on Saturday tweeted, "Whatever happens, I'm just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh's life." The post quickly went viral, as multiple conservative pundits retweeted it with critical commentary. Dumas the next day said the tweet was a "tone-deaf attempt at sarcasm." "The last couple of weeks have been hard for the country and for me personally," she wrote. "The complexity of frustration, anger and sadness can’t be accurately conveyed on twitter,...

    Rosenstein Meeting To Watch Kavanaugh... Shined up with tweets about dating Donald Trump, fourth-wall-cracking quips and Roseanne implosion asides, the revival of Murphy Brown is very meta. Yet despite those lofty lunges, the CBS sitcom still led by Candice Bergen just can’t grasp the big-picture reality of 2018. To put it another way, FYI, if you really don’t want to “tarnish” your legacy, to quote Bergen’s now-unretired TV journalist Brown in the first episode of this de facto 11th season, then hit the reset button on this revival ASAP before irrelevance comes knocking.

    These are strange days in the USA… The Bears are in first place in the NFC North and a pipsqueak posing as Thomas Magnum is trespassing on the grounds of the Robin Masters Estate in Hawaii.

The new Magnum, P.I. is a testament to not only how bad Hollywood is now, but how completely upside down society is. In 2018 America, aka America 180; right is left,...

    [Snip] It wasn’t as solid of a night for CBS, though. The premiere of the final season of “The Big Bang Theory” scored only a 2.4 in the demo, down around 40% from its premiere last year and from the 2.7 average of its previous season. “Young Sheldon” (1.7) suffered an even greater year-to-year drop, falling 2.1 points from its series premiere and also down from its first season average (2.2). The series premiere of “Magnum P.I.” fell 0.5 from its “Young Sheldon” lead-in, and scored a low 1.2 in the 9 p.m. hour, while “Bull” returned to a 0.9...

    CBS is in talks for the rights to produce a miniseries based on "A Higher Loyalty," former FBI Director James Comey's memoir of his time in the FBI, including his service under President Trump. CNBC reported Tuesday that the network is close to a deal for the series's rights after reportedly winning an auction for the story earlier this month. CBS Television Studios declined to comment to CNBC, but a source close to the negotiations described the auction process as "a highly competitive situation," according to the report. The former FBI director's memoir was released in April amid fanfare in...

    CBS Television Studios is near a deal for a miniseries based on former FBI Director James Comey's memoir "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership," according to Deadline Hollywood. The online news site said CBS won an auction and is in final talks for rights to the New York Times bestselling book. It said Comey was involved in pitch meetings in Los Angeles with potential buyers of the project. CNBC reached out to Macmillan, the memoir's publisher, for comment.

    When press and camera crews from a number of outlets gathered outside her door — as a sexual assault allegation left the Supreme Court nomination of her husband, Brett Kavanaugh, hanging in the balance — Ashley Estes Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes. According to at least one reporter, CBS’ Kathryn Watson, Kavanaugh offered up cupcakes from Sprinkles, a cupcake bakery in Georgetown. Watson’s tweet spurred several reactions. First, people asked, “why are you at his house?” and criticized the media for camping out at his house.

    Is Julie Chen on the verge of being evicted from her own daytime talk show? The Talk co-host was once again M.I.A. during Monday’s broadcast, extending her leave of absence in the wake of Les Moonves’ firing into Week 2. Chen’s continued absence was not addressed by her fellow Talk panelists and guest host Carnie Wilson, who instead discussed Carrie Underwood’s tearful CBS Sunday Morning interview and Mike Seidel’s dramatic hurricane coverage for The Weather Channel at the top of the Monday’s show.

    After taking a hiatus from her post on The Talk Julie Chen returned to CBS to host Big Brother, but chose not to address the latest allegations of sexual misconduct against husband Leslie Moonves for most of the show. That was all until the very end of the episode where she seemed to show support for her husband, by signing off on the show with: "I'm Julie Chen Moonves. Goodnight." It was off script from her usual sign off and the first time she has used the last name Moonves on the show. The morning after her husband Leslie Moonves...
