    It took two years and two tries for “Doubt” to make the CBS lineup – but now the show has been canceled after just two weeks. The Eye network has pulled the plug on the show effective immediately; next week, CBS will air a repeat of “Bull” in the show’s Wednesday 10 p.m. (ET) time slot. The second season of “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” will then slide into the spot permanently on Wednesday, March 8, following a two-hour “Survivor” premiere.

    Shortly after President Donald Trump vowed to “do something” about the “cunning” media who he once again called “the enemy” of the American people, CNN announced on air it had been barred from today’s White House briefing. CNN reports New York Times, Los Angles Times, and Politico also were told they were not on the White House list, for today’s off-camera briefing. Breitbart, Fox News, Washington Times, and One America News Network were among those given entry, CNN reported. Today’s off-camera gaggle is distinct from the on-camera White House Press Briefing led by Press Secretary Sean Spicer, which is not...

We’ve reviewed the matter and are taking the appropriate action.” An ABC 7 spokeswoman would not elaborate on the action.

    It was riveting. In his first solo press conference, President Donald Trump spent much of the hour berating the media for what Trump called anti-Republican bias and its relentlessly negative "tone." It's about time. The liberal media has long been sticking it to Republicans. In October 1992, during the presidential race between President George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Investor's Business Daily found that over 90 percent of the economic news in newspapers was negative. At the time, the economy was well into a recovery, on its 19th consecutive month of growth. Yet much of the business news...

    Sen. John McCain slammed President Donald Trump's attacks on the media this week by noting dictators "get started by suppressing free press." It was a startling observation from a sitting member of Congress against the President of the United States, especially considering McCain is a member of Trump's party. "I hate the press," the Arizona Republican sarcastically told NBC News' Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press." "I hate you especially. But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It's vital."

According to the university, journalism students can look forward to, “mastering the art of compelling storytelling through firsthand experience in the vibrant political and cultural landscape of the nations’ capitol.” Shouldn’t there be some mention of the gathering of facts? Apparently not. For one half of the school's elective offerings feature a storytelling theme that runs counter to the...

    CNN is viewing its antagonism toward President Donald J. Trump as a “badge of honor” — and according to CNN president Jeff Zucker the network’s daily aggression aimed at Trump is “boosting” employee morale. President Trump renewed his assault on the veracity of the “fake media” by jousting with CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta at a Thursday press conference. During the back and forth, Trump joked that he was downgrading CNN from merely “fake news,” to “very fake news.” He also poked at the network over its ratings. Only five months ago, CNN’s ratings were so bad that it...

    We’re not even a month into the Trump Administration, and liberal thoughts have irrationally moved from hoping and planning for Hillary Clinton’s third run for President to just plain silliness—President Trump’s resignation or impeachment. To me, this signals good things. I haven’t seen liberals this upset and powerless for decades. While I believe liberal tears will keep me young, I just can’t understand how such smart people could be so seriously delusional. I recently read a Hoover Institution article by the “classically liberal” NYU law professor Richard Epstein, who suggested that President Trump should immediately resign. Not because of Trump’s...

This particular media feeding frenzy was set off by longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, who mentioned the videos in an essay published this week by the London Review of Books. Blumenthal wrote: In 1969, Fred Trump plotted to run for mayor of New York … He made two test television commercials.

Beloved children’s characters like Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Jasmine from Aladdin are stopped by angry...

    The fake news problem is really getting out of control. Donald Trump was sworn in as President on 20th January, and in just two weeks he has already set back women’s rights dramatically. He has restricted women’s reproductive rights, cut funding to international organizations who promote, provide and advise on abortions, and just yesterday it was revealed that he’s planning an executive order to declare pre-marital sex, same-sex marriage and abortion to be wrong. Because that's how executive orders work. Of course this isn't the kind of fake news the media tackles. Instead it's the kind that it winkingly distributes.

Seriously, can CNN even regard itself as a news outlet anymore? This kind of racist and biased commentary has no place on a network with the word "news" in its name.

    CNN, which was dubbed Clinton News Network during the presidential campaign, is locked in a public relations battle with President-elect Donald Trump–and he’s winning, according to media experts. “Maybe CNN gets a short term bump from the attention,” David Shuster, the former MSNBC anchor, who once worked for CNN President Jeff Zucker, told the Hill. “But the long term damage to CNN, and the boost to Trump, could be significant. He’s winning this.” Last week, CNN dedicated massive amounts of airtime to memos alleging that there was communication between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian officials. Numerous allegations in the report,...

    NBC's Matt Lauer says he was reduced to tears when he watched President Obama surprise Vice President Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Thursday. "I'm glad there were no cameras in my apartment yesterday because I was just sitting there weeping ... I just burst out crying when I saw that moment. It was incredible,” Lauer, who recently signed a reported $20 million per year contract extension through 2018, said Friday on "Today." The waterworks were on for Biden himself as well on Thursday when Obama shocked his vice president with the Medal of Freedom. Biden had to...

    The YouTube channel of influential conservative politics and law website Legal Insurrection has been removed by the video sharing service, citing copyright infringement claims. “This account has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted,” explains YouTube, in a notice posted to channel’s page. Legal Insurrection founder and publisher and Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson voiced his anger and astonishment at the channel’s removal. “It’s very frustrating, it’s very scary, to have 8 years of content removed without a chance to defend yourself,” he told FoxNews.com.
  • What has happened to MSNBC? They're mild in comparison to CNN now and days

    Most of the MSM in general leans to the left of the ideological spectrum, but MSNBC was once proud to be the direct media arm of the Democrat Party itself. Now they have seem to have become mild Of course, they still have their liberal media personalities on the air just like Sean Hannity is the conservative bulwark at FoxNews but even there they are not so agressive as their counterparts on CNN, who once was considered the moderate (slightly less outright liberal) network against a backdrop of so called 'divisive' media entities. Now CNN has taken the mantel from...

    AMERICAN THINKER ^ | JANUARY 12, 2017 | Robert Arvay
    Someday, Bill O'Reilly may add to his list of historical books, which include Killing Kennedy and Killing the Rising Sun, the title Killing CNN.  It portends to be the chronicle of a vital turning point in American history, the death of the propaganda machine in our politics, and the resurgence of genuine journalism. I have for some time now eschewed referring to most American news institutions as "mainstream media" and instead termed them what they are: the Ministry of Propaganda (MoP). ~SNIP~ For those who may find themselves uneasy at the possibility of official censorship, remind yourselves that what...

    Now that I no longer do a weekly TV show, I have more time to read my local paper. Sadly, that's The New York Times. The Times actually does some good reporting, but their political and economic coverage is filled with deceit. Can I find deceit every day? You bet. Take a look at a few days just last week. --Thursday: The front page: "NAFTA's promise is falling short, Mexicans agree." Wow, the Times now embraces Donald Trump's position on trade? Economists estimate that 14 million jobs depend upon NAFTA, but people everywhere often oppose trade because the smaller number...

    (MPN) A recent poll of cable news network viewers found that CNN’s regular audience is far more skeptical of the political news they receive than Fox News fans. In the poll published Wednesday by Rasmussen Reports, 1,000 likely voters were asked to describe their media viewing habits. Seventy-five percent said they watch at least some form of cable news each week, with 42 percent saying they most frequently watch Fox News, 35 percent usually choosing CNN, and 19 percent favoring MSNBC. An even 50 percent of frequent Fox News viewers agreed with a followup question, “Do you trust the political...

    BuzzFeed, the media outlet which published a 35-page unverified intelligence report alleging that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign conspired with Russia and that the Kremlin possesses salacious compromising information about him, is a “failing pile of garbage,” the president-elect said Wednesday.
