Hannity said that Koppel's rebuke was 'sad.' On the television program, Hannity also said that 'liberalism has to be defeated' and said that 'angry snowflakes, a 'Democratic establishment' and 'the press in this country' are all obstacles. * Hannity later...

    In an apparent contravention of the laws of space and time, MSNBC and CNN managed to interview the same guest at the same time "live" Wednesday evening. Beginning at 7:05 p.m. Eastern, MSNBC's Chris Matthews began interviewing Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier (Calif.). But somehow CNN's Kate Bolduan began to interview the San Francisco Democrat two minutes later, while she was still being interviewed by Matthews. {..snip..}

    In March, several outlets gleefully reported that ESPN was near collapse as a network. Conveniently, several of these reports came from competitors to ESPN who hope to capitalize and gain market share. Nonetheless, it is true that ESPN will be cutting $100 million in salaries -- most from very recognizable on-air talent -- in a cost-cutting move to shore up their bottom line.

    Ah, springtime. Flowers blooming, birds singing, and articles questioning the historicity of Jesus hitting the newsstands. Insurance company Geico has done a lot of funny commercials, but our editor at BreakPoint has a favorite. A group of teenagers are running through a dark forest being chased by a killer. After debating whether to hide in the basement, the attic or make a quick getaway in the nearby running car, they decide to hide behind dozens of chainsaws dangling from a barn door. "When you're in a horror movie, you make poor decisions," says the narrator. "It's what you do." And...

    Of all politicians that have served in office in America since its founding, and subsequently lied, President Trump is the worst of the bunch, according to David Leonhardt of The New York Times. “[T]he current president of the United States lies,” Leonhardt writes. “He lies in ways that no American politician ever has before.” This includes Barack Obama’s “if you like your doctor/plan, you can keep your doctor/plan” lie and George W. Bush’s infamous “weapons of mass destruction” declaration, which the left still deems a lie. Leonhardt excused these two instances with this defense:

    Once upon a time, CNN provided 24/7, serious news coverage of world events. The network was born in 1980 and gained viewers with live coverage of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster in 1986 and the rescue of baby Jessica McClure in 1987. In the 1980’s it was the only all news cable network in the world. But, CNN didn’t garner international attention until the 1990 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and the subsequent US led Gulf War in the winter of 1991. CNN not only came to prominence during the Gulf War, they owned Gulf War news coverage. The first Persian...

    Let’s go down the checklist here. Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump because of misogyny, racism, sexism, the FBI, the Russians, and now the media. Seriously, the media that was banking heavily on her to beat Trump was part of the problem, says House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Reportedly, the Clinton campaign is angrier with the Obama White House than Russia or FBI Director James Comey concerning the interference campaign that the Kremlin waged against the former first lady, which was primarily done through state-funded media apparatuses peddling propaganda and social media trolls. That is not the same thing...

    Since the election, Liberals and the liberal media have been fixated on whether or not President Trump and/or his campaign somehow colluded with Russia to “throw” the election in his favor. They are convinced this must have happened, because they can’t seem to fathom how their anointed candidate could have otherwise lost? It’s been non-stop Russia coverage since November. Who talked to a Russian? Who thought about a Russian? Who listened to Tchaikovsky once, even if it was years ago? Liberals are demanding answers, and they are demanding them now. You’d think Sen. Joseph McCarthy was a closeted Democrat, judging...

You may have missed it amid President Trump’s startling Saturday tweet storm, the recriminations over president-on-candidate spying, and the Jeff Sessions recusal — a whirlwind weekend. But while you weren’t looking, an elaborate narrative died. For months, the media-Democrat complex has peddled a storyline that the Putin regime in Russia hacked the U.S. presidential election. There is, of course, no evidence that the election was hacked in the sense that the actual voting process was compromised.

In this October Surprise of 2004, it didn’t matter to Rather that the documents he put forward to accuse the president of cowardice were proven to be fraudulent. For according to the CBS talking head, it was simply a fact that George Bush had shirked his responsibility to serve, evidence to the contrary be damned.

"I think it's very important for all of us to recognize that one of our great strengths is for people to be able to worship the way they want to, or not worship at all," Bush said....

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...

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...

    ESPN has become a drag on the earnings of parent company Disney as cord-cutters unsubscribe in droves. “A floundering ESPN, with rising costs and declining viewership, continued to sink Disney’s financial results during its fiscal first quarter,” MarketWatch noted. With its movie franchises and theme parks, Disney is and should be doing fine, but the 1Q revenue was down 3 percent and profit plummeted 14 percent because of its sports media investment. ~Then farther down~ In an essay posted at Outkick the Coverage, Travis argues that ESPN is tanking in the ratings generally because of an emphasis on political correctness...

    "Mike Lupica is being blamed for the cancellation of “The Sports Reporters” after the show’s run of nearly 30 years on ESPN. The Daily News columnist was a panelist for many years on the Sunday morning show, on which he and other print reporters such as the Boston Globe’s Bob Ryan and the Detroit Free Press’ Mitch Albom discussed the week’s hot-button issues in sports. When longtime host John Saunders unexpectedly died at 61 in August, Lupica jumped at the chance to replace him. “He was a total diva,” one insider said. “He was abusive to people, and mean to...

    They're well-produced, but they're still "clever fakes." Many reporters were shocked this week after racially charged videos surfaced online purporting to be campaign ads created in 1969 for Fred Trump, the late father of President Trump. 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. One of them, called 'Dope Man', featured a drug-addled black youth wandering the...

    The media wants you to believe that even fictional characters are suffering at the hands of the evil GOP. Thanks to feminist outlets like Glamour, Teen Vogue and Allure, an artist and writer team’s Instagram posts have gone viral, for depicting Disney princesses as “real life” women “combatting the GOP’s War on Women.” What does this even mean, exactly? Well, illustrator Maritza Lugo and writer Danielle Sepulveres call the artwork series, “Disney Princess goes to the gyno,”and it’s pretty self-explanatory from there. Beloved children’s characters like Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Jasmine from Aladdin are stopped by angry...

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo said Thursday that calling a reporter a purveyor of “fake news” is the same as using a racial slur.While hosting CNN’s “New Day,” Cuomo read aloud a tweet from President Trump accusing Cuomo of failing to ask Sen. Richard Blumenthal about his military record, then proceeded to throw a fit.Cuomo had in fact asked Blumenthal about his military record, and played the clip of the interview to prove it.Blumenthal avoided answering Cuomo’s question. Instead, he talked about comments made by Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.“Literally the first point that I made in the interview,” Cuomo said. “The president, with...

    Republican Gov. John Kasich repeated his belief in the importance of the free press Wednesday as tensions between the media and the administration of President Donald Trump remain high. The former congressman and 2016 presidential contender declined to directly take on Trump, who he refused to endorse, campaign with or vote for last year, while speaking to editors and publishers convened by the Ohio Newspaper Association. But Kasich said he wanted to see the industry survive and thrive. “I’d like to stand for all of you, for all of you who have real content, for all of you who’ve decided...

    "It has been a busy day for presidential statements divorced from reality." Anchor Scott Pelley greeted "CBS Evening News" viewers with that line Monday night. Pelley opened the show standing in front of a photo of President Trump which bore the words "Reality Check." "Today, President Trump told a U.S. military audience that there have been terrorist attacks that one knows about because the media choose not to report them," said Pelley. Trump told military leaders at CENTCOM Monday that terror attacks are being under-reported by the media.

    In the midst of a Democratic protest this evening against the nomination of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., as the next attorney general, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., began reading the contents of a 1986 letter from Coretta Scott King, widow of the slain civil rights leader, protesting his nomination as a U.S. District judge. (That nomination was unsuccessful.) But 31 years later, Warren was sanctioned by her Senate colleagues for reading the letter on the chamber floor, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said impugned the character of her fellow senator.

    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.
