    The new lawsuit filed by two women against Fox News and several of its personalities is riddled with inaccuracies. This raises questions about the veracity of its claims. Jennifer Eckhart and Cathy Areu, a former Fox Business producer and frequent network guest, respectively, claim that they suffered sexual misconduct, harassment, and even rape at the hands of Ed Henry, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Howard Kurtz.The lawsuit immediately made waves in the mainstream media, where it was picked up by the New York Times, CNN, the Washington Post, CBS News, and other major outlets. It has been a top†trending topic...
  • ĎUkraine-Gateí Is About the Russian Hack That Wasnít

    American Greatness ^ | September 25th, 2019 | Julie Kelly
    One of the animating chapters in the Trump-Russian collusion saga was the claim that Russia infiltrated the Democratic National Committeeís email server in the spring of 2016. That hack, according to collusion truthers, and the subsequent release of damaging emails exchanged between top Democratic Party officials was central to Vladimir Putinís scheme to sway the presidential election in favor of Donald Trump. But the evidence to support this widely accepted claim is sketchy at best and appears to be under appropriate scrutiny by prosecutors now examining the origins of the FBIís pre-election investigation into the Trump campaign for ďcolludingĒ with...

    President Trumpís personal attorney Rudy Giuliani lambasted the media on Sunday for what he says is its failure to investigate allegations of corruption leveled against former Vice President Joe Biden and his family. Calling Biden the mediaís ďhoney boy,Ē a fiery Giuliani accused news outlets of not only failing to investigate the former vice presidentís dealings in places like Ukraine, China and Romania, but of purposely ignoring the allegations. ďThe Washington press corps has been covering this up for the last three years,Ē Giuliani told Fox News' Howard Kurtz of "Media Buzz.Ē ďIím trying to investigate a massive corruption scandal...

    "Media Buzz" host Howard Kurtz criticized rival network MSNBC for its coverage of President Trump Sunday and singled out host Nicolle Wallace for talking over the president's speech and calling him a liar while it streamed live on air last week. "MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace did exactly what she and colleagues did during [Attorney General] William Barrís [Capitol] Hill testimony -- broke in, in the middle, to accuse people of lying -- in this case, while the president was still speaking," Kurtz said. Wallace broke in mid-sentence during Trump's Wednesday news conference about the House opening a formal impeachment inquiry...

    ....On April 29, 2016, when the DNC became aware its servers had been penetrated, an emergency meeting was held between the Chairwoman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, DNCís Chief Executive, Amy Dacey, the DNCís Technology Director, Andrew Brown, and Michael Sussman, a lawyer for Perkins Coie, a Washington, DC law firm that represented the DNC. Sussman took control of the meeting, setting out the DNCís agenda when it came to dealing with the cyber attack on its server. The three most important questions, Sussman declared, were what data was accessed, how was it done, and how can it be stopped?...

    In late July, the White House had just finished an official policy review on transgender individuals serving in the military and President Trump and his then-chief of staff, Reince Priebus, had agreed to meet in the Oval Office to discuss the four options awaiting the president in a decision memo. But then Trump unexpectedly preempted the conversation and sent his entire administration scrambling, by tweeting out his own decision ¬ó that the government would not allow transgender individuals to serve ¬ó just moments later. ¬ď‚Äą¬ĎOh my God, he just tweeted this,¬í‚Äą¬Ē Priebus said, according to a new book by Howard...

    It was as inevitable as a chemical reaction: Once the tragedy in Tucson became politicized, the right would quickly come to feel aggrieved. Not everyone on the liberal side has tried to tie the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords and 19 others to the violent imagery used by Sarah Palin and other Republicans; many have been admirably restrained. But conservatives aren¬ít happy about the emerging narrative, and on Sunday, they started punching back. Keith Appell, a top publicist for conservative causes, declared in an email that ¬ďsome in the media have implicated conservatives, the Tea Party, talk radio, Republicans, etc.¬Ē in...

    President Donald Trump's press conference on Thursday was the "harshest and most sustained attack on the media by a president of the United States in history," according to Howard Kurtz. During the question-and-answer session, Trump repeatedly criticized CNN and tussled with its reporter, Jim Acosta, and was terse with MSNBC correspondent Kristen Welker. "You couldn't turn away," Kurtz said on "Special Report" tonight. {..snip..}

    The mediaís legions of Trump-bashers are finally acknowledging the obvious. And trying their best to justify it. But thereís one problem: Tilting against one candidate in a presidential election canít be justified. This is not a defense of Donald Trump, who has been at war with much of the press since he got in the race. Too many people think if you criticize the way the billionaire is being covered, you are somehow backing Trump.

    Toward the end of my third campaign interview with Donald Trump, I finally got a glimpse into why he spends so much time and energy attacking journalists. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I told the Republican front-runner in our Trump Tower sitdown on Friday that he has every right to hit back at media people who criticize him, and there's been no shortage of harsh criticism. What I wanted to know is why he's so obsessive about it. Why he's calling out lesser-known reporters at rallies. Why he's using Twitter to slam cable news commentators and guests around...

In this video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation, the author and scholar explained the multi-cultural and post-modern worldview dominant on college campuses "cannot absorb that some cultures may actually pose a threat," such as radical Islam, and our in fact waging war on western civilization.

    I don't need liberal Howard Kurtz, formerly of the Washington Post, telling me or you why we criticize his network's handling of the Republican debate. He's on their payroll. I am not. His comments are self-serving. I've explained in plain English my assessment on my own radio show and elsewhere. And I am not a Trump supporter as I've not declared for anyone. But I have been a Fox supporter. Nor is this about what Democrats or liberal news outlets would say or do. Argument by innuendo and distraction is a typical but flawed tactic. Kurtz doesn't know me or...

    Barack Obama has come out swinging against his Republican rival, sponsoring television advertisements that ask, "What is Mitt Romney hiding?" The allusion is to such relatively minor matters as Romney's prior tax returns, the date he stopped working for Bain Capital, and the non-public records from his service heading the Salt Lake City Olympics and as governor of Massachusetts. Obama defended his demands that Romney release more information about himself, declaring in Aug. 2012 that "The American people have assumed that if you want to be president of the United States that your life's an open book when it comes...
