  • MTP: Tom Cotton Schools Chuck Todd About Relying Too Much on Anonymous Sources

    Things arguably got a little embarrassing for NBC moderator Chuck Todd during Sunday’s Meet the Press, after Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton had to explain to him that the claims of anonymous sources should be taken with a grain of salt. “Anonymous sources said Steve Bannon drove from the White House to the Department of Homeland Security to confront John Kelly, which we now know is not the truth,” Cotton reminded Todd, “That’s not like the tone of a conversation, that’s someone’s physical whereabouts.” Cotton’s schooling of Todd came as the NBC moderator pressed the Senator on when the media could...

    A pair of NBC News videos featuring kids expressing fears about Donald Trump’s presidency is coming under fire by conservatives who call it “propaganda.” The videos show kids saying things such as “Most of my family is black. I’m afraid that you’re gonna hurt some of us blacks,” “You are here, attempting to white-wash America,” “You’re going to separate me away from the rest of my family, and I really don’t want [that] because I love them too much.” The videos begin with one youth offering faint praise, then continue with a barrage of children expressing despair and fear over...

    A hypocritical NBCNews.com article argues that America is a “flawed democracy” that can be fixed by copying the “World’s Best Democracy” — Norway. In “Norway Is the ‘World’s Best Democracy’ — We Asked Its People Why,” NBC pretends to provide an objective look at why the Economist Intelligence Unit — based in London, where the country’s parliament actually considered banning America’s president — downgraded the U.S. to a “flawed democracy” and rated Norway the best. The article doesn’t mention one reason the U.S. is a flawed democracy: it isn’t one; it’s actually a Republic. […] Feigning fairness, the article points...

    Controlling "exactly what people think" is the job of the media, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski boldly declared Wednesday morning. While discussing President Trump's entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media. "And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think," Brzezinski said. "And that, that is our job." SCARBOROUGH: "Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I...

    After President Donald Trump spent a long weekend at Mar-a-lago, Sean Spicer held his first White House press briefing of the week on Tuesday. There, he faced a slew of questioning about a string of nationwide anti-Semitic crimes, including the touting of the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to suggest Trump’s led to a rise in Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. CBS White House correspondent Margaret Brennan began her questioning by explaining that she wanted “to give you a chance to respond to something cause I think the President's remarks and your clarification about where he stands on anti-Semitism is clear.”Brennan...

Not one child in either “Dear Mr. President: kids Talk Trump” or “Dear Mr. President: Letters from the American Children” says he actually supports Trump’s efforts to keep America safe from terrorism or stop the influx of illegal aliens. Both videos open with smarmy, false compliments to give the illusion that these kids haven’t been indoctrinated by leftist teachers and liberal media…but, then, both launch into unrelenting snide rebukes couched...

    The MSM is falsely portraying President Trump as having alleged on Saturday that a “terror” attack had occurred the night before in Sweden. Take, for example, this NBC story headlined “Donald Trump Explains Sweden Terror Comment That Baffled a Nation.” In addition to the misleading headline, the story includes a video clip of President Trump making his remarks. The chyron at the bottom of the screen reads “President Trump appears to refer to a non-existent terror incident in Sweden.” But if you listen to the president’s remarks, you’ll see that he never mentioned terror. He said: “The bottom line: we’ve...

McCain, who has broken with Trump on several issues, made the comments in an exclusive interview with NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd, after being asked about the president's condemnation of several media outlets as "fake news" and "an enemy of the American people."

In a radio interview Friday, conservative host Hugh Hewitt referred to the previous day's press conference at the White House, in which Trump laid into the news media and told reporters in the room that the public cannot trust them. "But that one comment, they don't trust you anymore, is a summation of where we are in America, because I really do think Manhattan-Beltway elites have lost the country," Hewitt said. "They've lost it." Dickerson agreed. "Yes, it's true,...

During Thursday’s press conference, an angry Todd tweeted, “This not a laughing matter. I'm sorry, delegitimizing the press is un-American.” He later whined, “Press bashing may feel good to folks but when it's done by people in power, it's corrosive. Take off your partisan hats for a second.” During live coverage, Lester Holt chided, “It was contentious. It was ugly at moments and we haven't seen anything like it.”

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...

    Since attending her husband's inauguration, Melania Trump has stayed out of the spotlight — and largely out of the White House. On more than one occasion, her absence has been conspicuous, raising questions about how she'll help shape the tone and tenor of life in her husband's new and busy administration. A delay in naming key staffers to her office has in turn delayed the carrying out of duties that typically fall to the first lady. On Friday, the first lady of Japan, Akie Abe, found herself making her scheduled stops in Washington, D.C., alone. Traditionally, the first lady of...

A kind of watered-down faith was OK, but she was sure that her family's intense religious beliefs and traditions would clash with the culture in nearby schools. She didn't want to have to compromise her family's beliefs in order to fit in. Then there those omnipresent books about a certain young...

    "Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich was caught going after Barron Trump, the ten-year-old son of President Donald J. Trump, tweeting that he could become the nation’s first homeschool shooter. Not really a funny joke. She deleted the tweet and protected her account on Twitter. Yet, the Internet is forever: ...."

    A former NBC producer was found dead in a drug-filled Manhattan apartment — and two men he had been hanging out with were arrested after they called 911, police said Thursday. Thomas Felty, 36, died Jan. 4 at the Upper East Side apartment where George Lopez, 50, and Patrick Walsh, 33, were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, police said. Walsh and Lopez met up with Felty earlier that day and the three went back to Lopez’s apartment, police said. Walsh and Lopez fell asleep and then awoke to find that Felty wasn’t breathing. Lopez called 911...

    Greta Van Susteren and Megyn Kelly are together again, with both women announcing last week that they had accepted positions as part of the NBC News team. And while the hiring of the two all-star anchors is being viewed by members of the media as quite the coup for the Peacock Network, Van Susteren is less than thrilled about being back under the same roof as Kelly according to one industry insider.

    Megyn Kelly let loose on Sunday night in Hollywood, as she and her husband Douglas Brunt headed to an exclusive post-Golden Globes bash hosted by CAA at the Sunset Tower Hotel. The couple was all smiles as they were pictured heading into the party and waving to the crowds outside, with Doug looking particularly fit and formal in a black pinstripe suit which he wore with a white oxford and paisley.

    Four years ago I posted about the "McLean Stevenson Effect" which you can read HERE. Basically, McLean Stevenson starred on the hit series M*A*S*H. However, after 3 seasons in the role of Henry Blake, Stevenson got tired of being part of an ensemble and decided to leave the show and go it alone on the "McLean Stevenson Show" which was an immediate flop. His career never recovered and his name has become synonymous with really poor entertainment career decisions. You could even consider McLean Stevenson to be the patron saint of that type of poor judgement. Okay, so my question...

    The Democrat-Media Complex has gone all in on the propaganda campaign to convince Americans that Donald Trump’s election is illegitimate because “Russia hacked the election.” Even if a majority of voters reject the unconvincing case being made, Team Hillary and Team Obama both know that they must keep their own supporters engaged in outrage against the victorious party. Because they believe they are the only legitimate custodians of power in America, any Republican who wins must have gained victory through illegitimate means. But they may have made a fatal overstep with the release of the top-secret report on Russian influence...

    The Scarecrow isn't a scarecrow, but he is introduced in a crucifixion pose. The tin man isn't The Tin Man, either, but he is the result of a horrifying, Frankenstein-style experiment.

The Wicked Witch Of The West runs a brothel. Welcome to Emerald City, the dark reimagining of L. Frank Baum's Oz stories that debuts on NBC after a nearly three-and-a-half-year trek down the yellow-brick development road.

    The Latest on President-elect Donald Trump (all times EST): 12:15 p.m. President-elect Donald Trump says he'll ask Congress to investigate leaks to the media on U.S. intelligence alleging Russia meddled in last year's election by hacking Democratic emails.

NBC aired a report Thursday that said...
