    CNN President Jeff Zucker says President-elect Donald Trump's attacks on his network are an attempt to "delegitimize journalism," adding that CNN's "credibility is higher than ever." "It's just unfortunate that the most powerful person in the world is trying to delegitimize journalism and an organization that plays such a vital role in our democracy," Zucker told New York Magazine in an interview Wednesday. "I think he's entitled to his opinion, but it's - to use one of his favorite words - sad."

The story is about a Washington Post/ABC News poll that asks, among other things, whether Trump should sell his business to avoid any possible conflicts of interest while president. Trump has taken steps to avoid these conflicts, although...

    CNN's New Year's Eve coverage featured Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin in NYC and then had various anchors/reporters at other locations. They put Brooke Baldwin and Don Lemon together in New Orleans. They cut to them throughout the night, and at 12:30, they went to them for the last half hour of live coverage to ring in the new year in New Orleans which is in Central time zone. Don Lemon was clearly drunk when they came on the air at 8:00. As the night wore on, he climbed up on the bar, was pouring drinks, drinking drinks, doing shots,...

    In a year when there were hundreds seismic shifts amid the tectonic plates within the body politic, one of the most important was the revelation that Media Polling is just as brutally biased as the media entities who present the polling results. With election 2016 behind us, and before 2017 arrives, the truth behind the intentionally constructed deception must not simply fade back into the shadows. Never again should the American voter trust the polling presented by corporate media. Everything about it is a financed and manufactured fraud.

    STUNNING Move by Putin By S. Noble - December 30, 2016 Putin refuses ďto sink to the level of this irresponsible ďkitchenĒ diplomacy.Ē In a stunning move, the Russian President Vladimir Putin will not retaliate against Obamaís sanctions. They took the high road. Russia, they said, refuses ďto sink to the level of this irresponsible ďkitchenĒ diplomacy.Ē The cagey President got all his licks in yesterday through his foreign minister and spokesman who talked of Obamaís ďparanoiaĒ. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday that he would recommend an equivalent response to Obamaís retaliation for unproven allegations of hacking. The Russian...

    NPR fans received an e-mail with the subject line "Bold, unbiased journalism." That's pretty funny coming from a network that puts a loving touch on Barack Obama in interviews and never secured an interview with Donald Trump. . . . Dear Friend, As I said on the radio the other day,* journalism is at the heart of who we are at NPR. Facts matter. We strongly believe in and follow the core journalism values of accuracy, fairmindedness, integrity and independence. We are the publicís media. That is, we work for you....

    It seems all of CNNís bashing of Donald Trump and sucking up to Hillary Clinton in 2016 did nothing to score a higher ratings win for the network. Not only did CNN come in behind rival Fox News Channel in the ratings lineup, it was knocked out of even third place by the very non-news network, HGTV. Home & Garden Television was the third most-watched cable network in 2016, right behind ESPN and first place winner Fox News,

    The same liberal media that tout women's rights, gender equality, equal pay, the freedom for a woman to express herself by choosing how to dress, is the same media now pushing the narrative that "modest" Islamic fashion is the hottest style to hit the catwalks. Yes. For the moment, The New York Times has thrown their feminist beliefs out the window, opting to promote a fashion that is often viewed as oppressive to women because it forces them to cover their entire body and face for fear of receiving unwanted glances from anyone other than their husbands. "There are probably...

    Editor's Note: Column co-written by John Schlafly How did it happen that a man we were told could not possibly be nominated, let alone elected, is about to take the oath of office as the 45th president of the United States? Part of the reason is that Donald Trump spoke to a set of hot-button issues (immigration and trade) that no other Republican was willing to touch, and those issues resonated with thousands of Americans who had previously voted for Obama. But even with the right issues and a brilliant slogan, ďMake America Great Again,Ē Donald Trump still had...
