    David Letterman’s departure isn’t the end of an era. The era of late night talk shows ended a while back. In Johnny Carson’s final week in the nineties, he played to an audience of twenty million. Lately, Letterman has been lucky to get 2 million. His final shows have played to around 5 million viewers.Late night talk shows still exist, but their intended audience mainly watches viral clips from them the next day. The average age of Letterman’s audience is 54. CBS hopes that the equally smarmy Stephen Colbert will be able to bring his younger audience demo with him,...

Friday, as though anything will ever change, PBS ombudsman Michael Getler stepped up and pretty much pled guilty on both counts: The following evening, May 15, Woodruff closed the NewsHour broadcast with a short editors note before we go. She said: There have been questions this week about journalists contributions to the Clinton Foundation and my name has come up. I want to clarify what happened.

    In the wake of the George Stephanopoulos scandal, most voters doubt the accuracy of political news coverage and think most reporters will slant their coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters now do not trust the political news they are getting. That's a 16-point jump from 45% last October. Twenty-one percent (21%) still have confidence in the political coverage they get, but that's down from 33% in the earlier survey. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.

Now George Stephanopoulos is caught in a Clinton web of deceit at ABC. The hat trick of arrogant anchor scandals helps explain why Americans dont trust network news. With apologies to Walter Cronkite, thats the way it is, and the way it is stinks. Stephanopoulos shares with Rather and Williams the rotten distinction of fessing up only after being exposed by real journalists. In his case,...

Judy Woodruff, the co-anchor and managing editor of PBS NewsHour, gave $250 in 2010 to the foundations aid efforts for victims of the Haiti earthquake. She was a senior correspondent then, before Jim Lehrer retired. Woodruff initially recalled the donation as being for $1,000, but based the $250 amount as the one on her 2010 tax return. Woodruff tried to make it sound bipartisan: I made the gift in response to an urgent joint appeal from former President Clinton and...

Of course, Stephanopoulos didn't disclose the information before interviewing Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer two weeks ago about allegations Hillary Clinton traded political favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation during her time as Secretary of State.

And there was some confusion about what the deeply partisan Stephanopoulos' role would be: Analyst? Pundit? Straight news reporter? At the time, I asked ABC about it and was assured Stephanopoulos would be a pundit like William Kristol, who was then with ABC News and would not do any news reporting....

Ted Cruz (R-TX) is better at handling tough questions in an interview set to broadcast on Tuesdays Hugh Hewitt Show.Harwood discussed an interview he did with Carson during which Carson argued that Hewitt was so gleeful about thinking that he had caught me on something, during a questioning on the Baltic states and NATO on Hewitts show back in March. After hearing the exchange between Hewitt and...

    After his controversial interview with Bloombergs Mark Halperin (which ThinkProgress dubbed the most racist interview of a 2016 candidate), Sen. Ted Cruz responded to Halperins apology with magnanimity: Mark Halperin is a serious and fair-minded journalist, Cruz wrote on his Facebook page. Today he kindly issued an apology for some silly questions he asked me in an interview. The apology was unnecessary no offense was taken, nor, I believe, intended but is certainly appreciated. This is both smart politics (whats the saying about picking fights with people who buy paper by the ton and ink by the barrel?)...

    The ties between the Clintons and the Spanish language television network run deep When former President Bill Clinton took center stage at Univisions upfront presentation for advertisers and the media on Tuesday, it marked more than just one of his many paid appearances. The relationship between the Clintons and Univision is deep from owner Haim Sabans unabashed support for Hillary Clintons election effort to a partnership between Univision and the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, to the networks newscasts that have bashed Republicans and, most recently, praised Hillarys new position on immigration putting her squarely in line...

    Before Jaquise Lewis lost his life defending his friends from an act of racist white mob violence, he was universally loved and admired. Fun to be around, said one relative. Never got into any trouble, his aunt remembered. One after another, they lined up to tell the Albuquerque reporters the story of how Jaquise was in the wrong place at the wrong time. snip Six other people were shot, said another reporter at KOB. And understandably people were upset. The sanctification continued with a report from the scene of the memorial: Jaquise was well loved, said the somber reporter Ryan...

    Just when you think the GOP might modernize, the knuckles start dragging again, this time on immigration and trade. Its political suicide. If you want to see where the impulse to reform the Republican Party in a more libertarian direction of limited government, social tolerance, and free markets goes to die, look no further than the recent attacks on immigration and freer trade by Jeff Sessions, the influential senator from Alabama. Every time the GOP seems finally ready to orient itself in a forward-looking, post-culture-war direction, some holdover from an America that never quite existed to begin with blows his...
