In the same hour, Scarborough criticized an editorial in The Wall Street Journal for not focusing on, what he considered to be, the most important points following former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation. Scarborough huffed, “Donald Trump has tried to delegitimize the courts…Don't screw with federal judges it never turns out well for you. And the courts won that round.

    Shepard Smith, a Fox News anchor, whose job is to report the news, instead went off, unhinged, attacking President Trump because Trump criticized CNN reporter Jim Acosta.  Evidently, the news media boys believe they can attack Trump, but when Trump responds, then it is an attack on the First Amendment.  They cannot handle being criticized. Smith said: It's crazy what we're watching every day.  It's absolutely crazy.  He keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as [if] we're some kind of fools for asking a question.  Really?  Your...

Of course, a lot of questions were about Russia, to which the president vociferously said he has no ties, no loans,...

Yet many of these same news organizations have likened Trump to the Taliban and Adolf Hitler, floated false rumors about his use of a Russian prostitute, and accused his administration of being pro-slavery. After Trump avoided calling on MSNBC during today's presser with Benjamin Netanyahu, MSNBC’s Peter Alexander complained that the conservative journalists he did call on didn’t ask “real questions” like he would have. “What was striking," Alexander said, was that "President...

    If Morning Joe had a hook, they would have yanked presidential advisor Stephen Miller off the set of the Sunday shows he appeared on yesterday. Today's Morning Joe devoted a long segment to eviscerating his performance. The essence of the criticism was two-fold. First, that Miller spoke too much about his personal views rather than those of the president he serves. Second, that in declaring that the powers of the president to protect the country "will not be questioned" he was expressing an undemocratic view running counter to the principle of judicial review.

That news, however, did not get much attention on CNN.

    The scandal surrounding Russia’s intervention in the U.S. presidential election has, broadly speaking, come in three phases. The first broke during the campaign itself. Around the time Donald Trump publicly urged Russia to commit illegal acts of cyber-espionage to help his candidacy, multiple reports came to light suggesting Russian officials were, in fact, trying to boost the Republican. Trump, when he wasn’t praising Putin, dismissed the allegations, and much of the political world focused instead on Hillary Clinton’s email server protocols. The second phase unfolded soon after Election Day, when 17 U.S. intelligence agencies reached a consensus: Russia did launch...

    The Megyn Kelly story is about best laid plans going awry—ironically awry. She bargained to be the biggest voice of the dominant news channel in America — and, as well, the best paid on-air personality in the history of television news. Instead, she’s become merely a contender among the knives-out egos in the contested (and ever dwindling) territory of network news—and at a steep discount to the brass-ring salary she might have had. The Murdochs, father and sons, thought Kelly was going to be their way of cleansing Fox of Roger Ailes and his brand of diss-the-elites conservatism—and of letting...

    MSNBC stabs the narrative in the back. It’s really starting to look like the Trump/Russia blackmail story will go down in history as a high point in the annals of fake news. Every hour, we learn something new that derails the narrative the media so desperately wanted to believe. Buzzfeed, which President Elect Trump called a “failing pile of garbage” during today’s press conference is now the “fake news” poster child.

A Heat Street review of public records show that a total of six current, prominent MSNBC pundits have recently settled federal or state tax liens, while one still has tax problems. Moreover, at least two other hosts who recently left the network have also had massive tax liens filed against them. MSNBC declined to comment, and none of the current or former tax debtors responded to requests for interviews sent through an MSNBC spokesperson. The Rev. Al Sharpton — MSNBC’s Sunday morning host — easily comes in first place when it comes to “issues”...

    Journalism, by definition, is simply presenting facts. But, for many current “journalists,” the job involves more than merely transferring information. This video from MSNBC shows just how inaccurate these so-called “news” networks can be. Steve Kornacki uses the network’s absurdly inaccurate polls to creates his own delusional narrative for the presidential election, getting EVERY prediction wrong! One thing is for sure. Nobody will ever consider this guy to be a prophet. In Biblical times, he’d be lying in a pit being pelted with rocks. Actually, these poor predictions were more of a team effort, than that of just one man....

    After all that hullaballoo over at FNC, Greta Van Susteren is making a quick and sudden return to cable news. According to Mirror sources, she’s getting a 6 p.m. time slot on MSNBC. Van Susteren initially defended Roger Ailes after being accused of all that sexual harassment from ex-FNCer Gretchen Carlson that got him canned from the network. Van Susteren shockingly resigned from FNC in September. She had worked at the network for 14 years. The network didn’t let her say goodbye to her viewers. She didn’t exactly trash FNC, but she said the last several years hadn’t been a...
  • Mitchell to Kerry: ‘How Disappointed Are You’ Trump Could Undo Your Hard ‘Work' on Israel?

    MSNBC host and NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell scored an exclusive interview on Wednesday afternoon with Secretary of State John Kerry following his speech blasting Israel and, not surprisingly, she served up softballs for Kerry up to attack Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The warm feelings were clear from the onset as Mitchell gushed over how Kerry’s 70-minute-plus remarks were “unusual” representing “an important moment” even though President-elect Donald Trump had been tweeting how he’s “very much disagreeing” with the Obama administration’s Israel policy and December 23 United Nations (UN) vote.

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow made the rounds on a few shows last week where she expressed her worry that a Trump administration will have a serious and negative impact on the profession of “journalism” -- it may "crumble" -- and it “just got different” under the incoming administration. Last week Maddow was on NBC's Late Night with host Seth Meyers, who asked her if liberals had any reasons to be optimistic about the new administration. Maddow hesitated before responding: “I have bright red shoes, which is very festive. … I have a family I love and nice dogs.” She did express...

    It was the strangest of settings for some very serious breaking news. There was Mika Brzezinski, cuddled up in her flannels on Morning Joe‘s special Christmas set. In the previous segment, Joe Scarborough had grilled Sean Spicer, whom President-elect Trump yesterday named as his White House spokesman, over Trump’s tweet of yesterday in which he said that the US needed to greatly strengthen its nuclear arsenal. Spicer repeatedly refused to say that the Trump tweet came in response from a statement by Vladimir Putin, just hours earlier, announcing Russia’s intention to strengthen its own nuclear arsenal. When the show returned...

    Democrats have a little Clinton problem Oh dear. It appears that at least some of the left-wing brain trust is getting sick of the excuses. Yesterday, we featured a Morning Joe panel that was clearly fed up with Hillary’s constant deflection. Now the dissatisfaction appears to be spreading. The Democrats ran a loser and at least some of them know it. They also seem to be aware that the Clintons’ less-than-gracious attitude isn’t doing the party any favors. Some of them are ready to move on and it appears they’re ready to consign Bill and Hillary to history’s scrap heap.

    “If you love movies and or politics, it is sometimes impossible to watch these things and not hear the words of Aaron Sorkin about the hard work of the presidency, the real work of the presidency, the view from the cheap seats, his words, not the president’s,” Williams said. “This was a kind of fascinating walk through the mind and the presidency of Barack Obama among other things,” Williams continued.

    "MSNBC is under pressure from [parent network] NBC to toe a Trump line and we need some alternative media out there," said Brock. "I know that there are hosts at MSNBC now who feel their jobs are at risk because the brass is for Trump." Asked if he has heard that directly from a host at MSNBC, Brock said, "One has, yeah. And I've heard of others."
