    Media giant Meredith Corporation has agreed to sell Time Magazine for $190 million, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday. Marc Benioff, co-founder of the cloud computing company Salesforce.com, and his wife Lynn Benioff are purchasing the publication, they confirmed to the Journal. The proposed sale to the Benioffs is expected to close within 30 days and will be unrelated to Salesforce.com. They also told the newspaper that they won’t have any day-to-day influence over the magazine’s operations, nor will they have any journalistic input. “We’re investing in a company with tremendous impact on the world, one that is also an...

    ESPN personality Jemele Hill announced she would be leaving the company Friday. Hill's was an anchor for "Sportscenter," the network's signature program, before going to work with company website The Undefeated in January. Hill's departure came after she was briefly suspended last year for messages she posted on social media, including one calling President Donald Trump a "white supremacist." At the time, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Hill's comments were a "fireable offense." Trump also criticized her last year, saying she was the reason the network ratings "tanked." She announced her decision on her Twitter, mentioning that...
  • Chuck Todd Can’t See It’s The Media’s Fault Americans Don’t Trust Them

    Chuck Todd’s recent article in The Atlantic was an insult to the intelligence of those of us who are ordinary voters and avid media consumers. He blames conservative media and their stars for the unprecedented distrust and credibility problems mainstream media outlets face. That’s right: he thinks millions of Americans loathe and distrust the national press solely because Fox News, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity regularly—and falsely, in his opinion—tell their viewers about the bias in national media. He is being either clueless or dishonest, and it might be a bit of both. Let me explain some of the many...

    Google has defended the way its bosses greeted the election of Donald Trump, after criticism by right-wing media. A video published on Wednesday by the Breitbart website shows senior executives commenting the morning after the 2016 election. During the 60-minute presentation, Google co-founder Sergey Brin said he found the election "deeply offensive". Breitbart said the video showed evidence of Google's inherent bias against Republicans. 'Panic and dismay' Google defended itself by saying the executives had been expressing their "personal views" and it had no political bias. In its story, Breitbart said the video had reached it via an anonymous source...
  • Anti-Trump journalists find new, bizarre ways to join the resistance

    Media bias seems to get worse by the week. Even a work week shortened by Labor Day delivered on that depressing trend. Journalists cheered protests at the Supreme Court nomination hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh and swallowed a silly Internet hoax. Then there was the anonymous New York Times op-ed defending a “steady state” rebellion against President Trump. It was a new low for journalists devoted to overturning a democratic election. Call it the pičce de résistance. The New York Times trumped opposition leaders at CNN and The Washington Post. The three battle daily for liberal attention and journalistic kudos...

    Why do the Democrats and the liberal media hate me so much? Because I refuse to stay on their political plantation. For decades, the Democrat-Media Complex has appointed itself the master of truth. They tell black Americans who to love, who to hate and what to believe. In their eyes, we are nothing more than a low-information voting block that will always vote for the Democrat Party. The only difference between the slave masters of old and the liberal media masters of today’s political plantation is that one enslaves the body while the other enslaves the mind. Liberals are the...

    CNN has suspended conservative pundit Paris Dennard amid revelations that in 2014 he was fired from Arizona State University for allegedly making sexually explicit comments and gestures toward women. Dennard, according to the Washington Post, told a recent college graduate who worked for him that he wanted to have sexual intercourse with her while touching her “neck with his tongue” during an event. A 2014 report by the university alleged that he “pretended to unzip his pants in her presence, tried to get her to sit on his lap, and made masturbatory gestures” when he worked at ASU’s McCain Institute...

    It seems that good news for President Donald Trump cannot be delivered by many liberal news outlets without putting a negative spin on it. Such was the case with Anthony Man of the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel who had to report on August 21 that Trump's approval rating is at it highest level which was immediately followed by a negative spin caveat.

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Saturday that he "fully admit[s]" Twitter employees share a largely left-leaning bias after facing accusations that conservatives are discriminated against on the social media platform. In an interview that aired Saturday on CNN, Dorsey said his company has a responsibility to be open about its political viewpoints, but to operate without bias when applying content policies to users. "We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is...is more left-leaning," Dorsey says. "But the real question behind the question is, are we doing something according to...

    On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville protests, white supremacists and radical leftists known as Antifa descended on the Virginia town once more to commit more violence. Late Saturday night, NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew were in the thick of it as Antifa members ganged up on them and attacked. The next morning, NBC’s Sunday Today ignored the attack and suggested the media was simply “heckled” by their assaulters. On Twitter, Perry was documenting the protesters as they marched through the streets of college town when they started to get “very aggressive with the media” and...

    CNN’s Jim Acosta is becoming the story of the week. Well, at least one of them; the Trump White House is a flurry of activity. Acosta was at President Trump’s rally in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, where supporters of the president heckled him. Yes, they chanted “CNN sucks.” Yes, a few middle fingers were thrown. So what? Suck it up. Acosta stayed and did his job, so at least he has the gumption to—you know—take a few punches. And he obviosuly wasn't in mortal danger because he did stay. The alleged abuse was patty cake stuff. It was no different...

    Veteran journalist Dan Rather said on Friday that President Trump’s false statements about and attacks on the media are "straight out of Orwell." The former longtime CBS News anchor told CNN’s Don Lemon that Trump is "authoritarian" and wants people to believe that "the one and only truth comes from him." [Snip] "As several people have said before me, he is not just attacking the truth, he wants to annihilate the truth," the former anchor added. "He wants to move us completely into the post-truth political era in which there’s no such thing as objective facts." Rather added that there...

    The publisher of the New York Times said Sunday he “implored” President Donald Trump at a private White House meeting this month to reconsider his broad attacks on journalists, calling the president’s anti-press rhetoric “not just divisive but increasingly dangerous.” In a statement, publisher A.G. Sulzberger said he decided to comment publicly after Trump revealed their off-the-record meeting to his more than 53 million Twitter followers on Sunday. Trump’s aides had requested that the July 20 meeting not be made public, Sulzberger said.[snip] “Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the...
