    Has MSNBC finally had enough of leaning forward into a full-tilt decline in ratings? Despite some suggestions that the cable channel’s carriage fees immunizes it from the ratings issue, it’s apparently not enough for the new president of NBC News. Poor ratings may spell the end of three shows, two of which appear in the channel’s ailing prime-time lineup, according to Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell: Mediaite has learned that Lack is now beginning to take an active role in the herculean task of trying to right that left-leaning ship: Specifically, Lack is now often attending MSNBC chief Phil Griffin‘s 11:30...

    its possible that the attention the ad revenue charts were generating on the Internet may have contributed to the decision by the Newspaper Association of America (NAA) in 2013 to suddenly stop its long-standing practice of reporting quarterly advertising revenue data, and switch to releasing only annual data ... In a 2013 interview, NAA CEO Caroline Little was quoted as saying that she and the organizations board decided it was time to stop beating themselves up four times a year with the negative numbers. ... Newspaper print advertising revenues of just $16.4 billion in 2014 fell to the lowest level...

In our first report, we noted that Fox told us Beckel was out receiving and recovering from back surgery. However, our own sources at the network indicated there was more to the story, including possible addiction (as cable watchers know well, Beckel is open about his drug history). And now Fox confirms that there is, indeed, an addiction therapy element to the story after all.

    (Newser) Details about NBC's Brian Williams investigation are leaking outfor example, news broke that he may have told Jon Stewart a tall tale, and yesterday sources told the Washington Post that the investigation found at least 11 examples of Williams' publicly embellishing a story. Those leaks are likely quite intentional, "longtime broadcast executives" tell Politico Playbook. The network is probably trying to force Williams to resign, sending him the message, "You're dead. Now negotiate," the sources say. That's because it would be more troubleand possibly more moneyto have to fire him, though some NBC insiders say Williams could still...

    A Las Vegas man told the Las Vegas Sun he concocted a story about Harry Reid getting beaten up by his brother to test right-wing media gullibility, which he claimed worked like a charm. Larry Pfeifer said he made up a story about Reids eye injury, which the senator incurred during an admittedly-bizarre exercise accident, after reading an unsubstantiated rumor in a conservative blog of Reid being beaten up by the mafia. Using a pseudonym, Pfeifer contacted the blogger John Hinderaker and spun a tale of a drunken fight between the Reid brothers, seemingly corroborated by Larry Reids DUI arrest...

    Evidence from the student newspaper of Princetons college newspaper shows that the young Ted Cruz was a defender of womens rights and not the anti-woman oaf. Cruz favored instituting a patrol program at Princeton to cut down on violence and sexual assaults against women on campus, according to the Daily Princetonian on September 20, 1990. Cruz also was a member of the campus safety committee on campus. He called for spending money to address the problem of date rape on campus instead of a costly $700,000 program to institute locks. Money should be spent on increasing proctor presence especially...

    Since January, when Mitt Romney officially bowed out of the 2016 presidential race, the assumption hanging over the Republican primary has been that Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, son of a president, and brother of a president, is the runaway favorite to win the party's nomination. Of course, anointing frontrunners eight months before the Iowa Caucuses is a little like naming your child before you've met someone to have it with. But with the Koch Brothers bestowing their papal blessing this week on a candidate that does not share his name with a former White House resident, it might...

    MADISON, Wis. Of all of the frightening accounts of government abuses in Wisconsins political John Doe investigation, David Frenchs description in National Review of the early-morning raid on Cindy Archers home may be the most stunning. But there are two nearly forgettable lines in Frenchs retelling of the raid that reveal volumes about the secret investigations aimed at bringing down Wisconsins conservative activist community. Archer, French writes, looked outside and saw a person who appeared to be a reporter. Someone had tipped him off. Supporters of the Democrat-launched political John Doe probes into conservatives have argued secrecy is key...

Clinton is traveling with longtime aide Huma Abedin and spokesperson Nick Merrill. Secret service is with them and she is not likely behind the wheel herself. The trip will take her along I-80 through the swing states of Pennsylvania and Ohio before she arrives in Iowa. Americans love road trips.

Bob Dole celebrated his 72nd birthday last Saturday, an occasion of more than passing significance. For it reminded the leaders of his party, the pundits searching for big issues and perhaps even a few real live voters of the thing Dole would most like them to ignore: if he were to win the presidency in 1996, he would be the oldest man ever inaugurated. Even if age doesn't matter, ideas do. At the very moment...

That clarity was not apparent this past week when Democrats and reporters alike advanced the slanderous narrative that Paul reserved his testiness exclusively for women. This, they added, was an unattractive trait that might be rooted in a lack of respect for the female gender. “He’s got to be careful here,” Todd told his colleague Andrea Mitchell. “This is...

Thus far, Mayor Sue Skidmore is balking. The towns welcome sign, which also honors a half-dozen other hometown notables (including Mark Twain), would be too expensive to replace, she says.

    Making Big Media the issue could, in fact, be precisely the means to truly energize conservative and by making Democrats the obvious toadies of Big Media, to deflate the left in 2016. The enemy of conservatism in America is the leftist establishment, the leftist-controlled institutions of news, education and entertainment. Take away these big, fat incestuously connected institutions and the left in America is a circus sideshow and nothing else. Democrat leaders like Obama, Hillary, Pelosi and Reid are slow witted, mean-spirited, and narrow-minded sock puppets filled by the chubby hands of the leftist establishment. Indeed, the leftist establishment prefers...

    The White House Correspondents Association is reportedly crafting a list of demands to be sent to the White House, after an incident last week in which a pool of reporters covering the presidents visit to Salt Lake City were turned away from a meeting between Obama and Mormon leaders. The list of demands is not yet complete, but will contain a series of written promises the press corps wants the White House to commit to. Weve been working on that document for almost a year now and will have more to say about it when we release it later this...

    RUSH: Such great news out of Indiana. Memories Pizza shut down by a mob of probably 10 to 15, maybe at the outside 20 people, who have found a way to make themselves look like they are thousands. Not just thousands of people, but angry, outraged, and they happen to represent the majority of Americans, don't you know. That's BS squared. Ten to 15 people toying around with algorithms available on Twitter that they actually created with the assistance of people that know Twitter well, and they're able to create tweets, Facebook posts, e-mails to make it look like thousands...

    Following a recent round of PPP polling which showed Texas Senator Ted Cruz firmly in the top tier of GOP presidential candidates, Allahpundit provided a lengthy and well thought out analysis of how real and durable these numbers might be. (Short version: dont expect him to fall out of the upper ranks just because more people officially get into the race.) Its true that Cruz saw a bump from his official announcement, but the renewed and increased media attention hes been receiving has expanded his name recognition, and with it his potential donor pool. Liberals have predicted in a...

    Scott Walker: Indiana Law Outrage From People Chronically Looking For Ways To Be Upset About Things Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Wednesday much of the outrage over Indianas new Religious Freedom Restoration Act comes from people who are chronically looking for ways to be upset about things. Walker was participating in Insight 2015, a program put on by Wisconsin conservative radio host Charlie Sykes. We dont need to, in Wisconsin, we have it in the constitution. Thats the remarkable thing for all of the hype, particularly in media here in Wisconsin. We have it in the constitution, Walker said when...
  • MSNBC Ratings Fall 40%: Countdown to Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews Firings

    CNN and FOX News have stepped up their game. CNN has gone full infotainment under Jeff Zucker and is eating MSNBC’s lunch. Meanwhile MSNBC has the same cast of social justice warriors with occasional interruptions from idiots like Al Sharpton and Chris Matthews offering the same predigested pablum that MSNBC’s younger audience gets in mock form from the Daily Show.The collapse is hitting fast and hard. MSNBC’s demo ratings, the 25-54 adult audience, has fallen anywhere from 39% to 45% (I’ve seen three numbers quoted across Variety, Deadline and Mediaite, 39%, 40% and 45%). For Q1 2015, MSNBC’s weekday primetime...

    The Heritage Foundation's Ryan Anderson (with whom I happen to disagree on same-sex marriage) appeared on Ed Schultz's MSNBC program (cough) last night to discuss Indiana's religious freedom law, and the resulting conversation culminated with the host instructing producers to silence Anderson's microphone. End of Discussion: Schultz advances one false or misleading narrative after another, then loses his composure when Anderson (or "Mr. Ryan," as Schultz calls him at one point) replies with rapid-fire factual corrections. Schultz interrupts Anderson's first answer almost immediately to contest the statement that Indiana's law is effectively the same as other RFRAs, including the federal...

    Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse for MSNBC, along came the quarterly ratings reports. In both daytime and prime time, MSNBC endured its lowest quarterly demo numbers in a decade, and its total viewership since the final quarter of 2007. Prime-time viewership was down 45 percent in the demo from the first quarter of 2014, while daytime viewership was down 39 percent in the demo. On Tuesday, while Fox News and CNN were boasting their own quarterly numbers -- Fox News remained dominant, CNN made major strides in the demo -- MSNBC chose to focus on the...

    The Redskins nickname has been the forgotten NFL controversy of the past several months. With concussions and domestic violence dominating the off-field headlines, the nickname debate circling around the Washington NFL franchise has moved to the backburner recently. However, some interesting developments from The Associated Press could move it back front and center. The organization is considering whether to make a ruling against the polarizing nickname when it comes to the influential AP Stylebook.

    ... Singers experience is shared by virtually every journalist on the government beat, from the White House on down. They can recite tales with similar outlines: An agency spokesman frequently a political appointee rejects the reporters request for interviews, offers partial or nonresponsive replies, or delays responding at all until after the journalists deadline has passed. Interview requests that are granted are closely monitored, reporters say, with a press minder sitting in. Some agencies require reporters to pose their questions by e-mail, a tactic that enables officials to carefully craft and vet their replies. Tensions between reporters and...
