    As NBC negotiates the fate of Megyn Kelly, the network has already started scrubbing traces of the disgraced host in the wake of her blackface backlash. Page Six is told that execs had long planned to feature Kelly heavily in its midterm-election coverage Tuesday night, and even sent out a press release before the scandal broke announcing that Kelly would front the broadcast alongside NBC heavyweights Lester Holt of the network’s “Nightly News,” “Today” host Savannah Guthrie and “Meet the Press” anchor Chuck Todd. But on Monday, NBC put out a video ad spot that deep-sixed Kelly from the lineup,...

    On Wednesday night, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News remained aboard the proverbial liberal media party bus pushing Congress to impeach President Trump and delay or thwart Brett Kavanaugh from reaching the Supreme Court following Tuesday’s bad Trump headlines involving Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort. NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt told viewers amidst their extensive Trump coverage that just because “the Special Counsel has yet to” prove Trump-Russia collusion “does not mean prosecutors exposed criminality in the President’s universe” and quipped that White House correspondent Kristen Welker had a look at “a look at all the President's...

  • Nets Go Gaga for Wild Nunberg Speculation About Trump Collusion

    Monday was marked by the rolling train wreck that was former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg’s seemingly non-stop appearances on cable news shows taunting Special Counsel Robert Mueller for subpoenaing him. During his wild interviews (which lasted from mid-afternoon into the night), Nunberg made numerous suggestions that federal investigators may have some kind of case against President Trump. And that was all the liberal network news outlets needed to run with it. Both CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight kicked off their programs with the jaw-dropping spectacle. On CBS, anchor Jeff Glor even announced that they were pushing back...

    NBC's Lester Holt is under fire for his "cushy" coverage of North Korea, despite the regime’s long record of cruelty, murder and oppression. The star journalist traveled to the Hermit Kingdom weeks before the Peacock Network will cover the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, and viewers slammed his coverage as being sycophantic, decidedly uncritical and feeding "propaganda." Holt was criticized in particular for saying he was treated “with respect” by the regime, where he reported from a ski slope as seemingly happy North Koreans were enjoying a wintry day. Viewers said the ski scene appeared to have been...
  • NBC Omits Popular Deductions Staying in GOP Tax Bill, Parrots Dems

    Congressional Republicans were one step closer to realizing their hopes for tax reform on Thursday as it appeared as though the House and Senate had reconciled nearly all of the legislation. Hearing the recommendations and concerns of the public, the Republicans preserved the current tax codeÂ’s deductions for student loans, medical bills, and added a $10,000 cap for state and local taxes. But of the three major network news outlets, NBC was the only one that left them out of their evening broadcast. Instead of reporting what was known to be in the GOP tax reform bill, NBC Nightly News...

    With the Senate GOP on the verge of passing their version of tax reform on Thursday, NBC Nightly News continued their week-long series where they claimed to break down the tax bills. But in reality, they only sought to stoke the fears of those who weren’t familiar with it. “Once aligned with the House version, it will affect your take-home pay as it adds new credits, takes away some popular deductions and slashes corporate taxes,” announced Anchor Lester Holt at the top of the program, as Capitol Hill Correspondent Kasie Hunt bemoaned how Democrats had no input.After Holt suggested that...

    The following paints a grim scenario. As you consider it, remember that sociopaths have no empathy. Thus, they have no gut feelings, no inner voice, to guide them about right or wrong, good or bad, wise or unwise. If you try to put yourself in Trump’s shoes, and conclude that you would never, could never, do such things, as a human being or as an American, you are using the wrong yardstick. Trump’s yardsticks are his own malignant narcissism first and Steve Bannon second. Rubles-to-doughnuts, Steve Bannon is painting this picture for Trump right now: With the appointment of Robert...

    >In covering the President’s proposed budget this week, network reporters unanimously claimed it “cut” or even “slashed” federal spending. An MRC analysis of ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news coverage since Monday (May 22) finds that not a single reporter ever told viewers that overall federal spending would actually RISE under President Trump’s planned budget — just not as much as forecast under the budget baseline Trump inherited from President Obama back in January. In 13 news stories from May 22 to May 25, network journalists made 30 references to “cuts” in federal spending, either referring to specific...

    Many conservatives were in mourning Thursday after news broke of the death of Fox News mastermind Roger Ailes. In a statement, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell stated that “the Left would command a monopoly control of the so-called "news" media but for the Fox News Channel, and FNC would not exist but for him.” But for NBC, it was a time to tear down what he did for conservative media and politics in general. “The coroner says Ailes died from complications related to a head injury that he suffered after a fall in his home in Florida,” announced Anchor...

    - Tired of winning yet? Part I.: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported on Thursday that its recent sweeps have resulted in the rounding up of more than 1,300 members of Mexican drug and human trafficking gangs. The main talking point the Democrats and fake reporters in the fake news media were able to agree on was to focus on the fact that more than 800 of those arrested were U.S. citizens, as if anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavities gives a flying rat’s ass. - Tired of winning yet?

    RUSH: We’ve got some Trump sound bites here from a interview that Lester Holt secured with Trump, Trump’s first interview since the firing of James Comey. And I don’t understand this, but NBC has released a lot of it. Not the whole thing. Like CNN aired three different excerpts. Why would you do this? I mean, why wouldn’t you hold it all for original broadcast on the NBC Nightly News? Well, I know what they’re thinking. Their thinking is that they can tease people to tune in and watch the whole thing if they give them just a few snippets....

    President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source. “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed…. “The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the encounter. “The meeting took place...

    In a speech Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump called the first presidential debate with Hillary Clinton “rigged,” and seemed to place much of the blame on the moderator, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt. “Then I had to put up with the anchor, and fight the anchor all the time on everything I said,” Trump said. “What a rigged deal.” The comments represent a shift from the morning after the debate, when Trump told Fox and Friends “I thought Lester was really good for the half … I thought he was fine. Nothing outstanding. He gave me very unfair questions at...
