    The President talked over Lesley Stahl in a relentless blast of rhetoric that seemed more rally than interview ......the President’s interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief enemy, the media, while airing his own points at ceaseless length..... Lesley Stahl’s interview with Trump was an undeniable get; he’d been scarce on mainstream media since around the time he appeared on tape with NBC’s Lester Holt and indicated he’d fired former FBI Director James Comey in part due to the Russia investigation. But the interview seemed governed by two motives, both of...

    NBC Issues Correction Two Days After Falsely Claiming Trump Called Gen. Robert E. Lee ‘Incredible’ On Friday, NBC News reported, and tweeted, that President Donald Trump praised Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee as “incredible”. But on Sunday, NBC had to correct that tweet since, as it turns out, Trump was actually praising Union General (and future U.S. President) Ulysses S. Grant in the clip. “An earlier tweet misidentified the general President Trump described as ‘incredible’ at a rally in Ohio,” they tweeted. “It was Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, not Gen. Robert E. Lee.” That’s a pretty big difference. That was...

    LONDON - Society would have to enact "unprecedented" changes to how it consumes energy, travels and builds to meet a lower global warming target or it risks increases in heat waves, flood-causing storms and the chances of drought in some regions as well as the loss of species, a U.N. report said on Monday. The report is seen as the main scientific guide for government policymakers on how to implement the 2015 Paris Agreement during the Katowice Climate Change Conference in Poland in December. To contain warming at 1.5C, man-made global net carbon dioxide emissions would need to fall by...

  • Nolte: After Enabling Franken, Covering Up Weinstein Bombshells, NBC Mocks Kavanaugh via SNL

    Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live gleefully piled on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and did so less than a year after this very same SNL came out in full-throated support for credibly accused serial groper Al Franken. Let’s back up a bit… The reason Democrats and their establishment media allies are now launching conspiracy theories about Kavanaugh “lying” about his teenage drinking is that the sexual misconduct allegations against him have collapsed. Simply put, by any objective measure, Kavanaugh has been wrongly accused, smeared, a victim of sexual McCarthysim. In my four decades of watching politics, never before have...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday accused NBC of being a "co-conspirator" in an attempt to bring down Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, criticizing the network for its coverage of assault accusations against Kavanaugh. "They’ve been a co-conspirator in the destruction of Kavanaugh from my point of view," Graham said during an appearance on Fox News's "Hannity." Graham attacked NBC for reporting last week that the Senate Judiciary Committee had questioned Kavanaugh about a fourth assault accusation. Senate investigators asked Kavanaugh about an anonymous complaint alleging that he physically assaulted a woman in 1998. The complaint was originally sent to...

    A former classmate of the Supreme Court nominee has reached out to the FBI but hasn't received a response. WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to a public allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to a college classmate, the judge and his team were communicating behind the scenes with friends to refute the claim, according to text messages obtained by NBC News. Kerry Berchem, who was at Yale with both Kavanaugh and his accuser, Deborah Ramirez, has attempted to get those messages to the FBI for its newly reopened investigation into the matter but says she...

    Julie Swetnick, the woman who accused Brett Kavanaugh of drugging women and participating in gang rapes in the 1980s, spoke out at length about her allegations in an interview that aired on MSNBC Monday. NBC News started off by noting it could not independently verify her claims. Swetnick spoke to NBC News correspondent Kate Snow about her allegations, made in a statement released last week, that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge attended a party where she was drugged and gang raped. While she did not accuse Kavanaugh of assaulting her, she claimed she witnessed him participate in gang rapes....

    ...I just got home and see a DM about a new breaking story from NBC that supposedly makes Kavanaugh look bad. I see every reporter in my timeline tweeting it so I decide to check it out. [....] The story suggests that based on second-hand texts between two people who know Kavanaugh, he was seeking evidence to exonerate himself from an allegation from Debbie Ramirez. Again, no evidence he is asking anyone to lie or do anything wrong. Just exonerate him.

    MSNBC anchor Katy Tur defended Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) from President Trump's criticism this week, saying the senator "took full responsibility for what he called a few misplaced words" regarding his false claim that he served in Vietnam. The defense comes as President Trump argued Monday that his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, was treated unfairly by Democratic senators and specifically Blumenthal during testimony before the Supreme Court Judiciary Committee on Thursday. “Look at Blumenthal. Lied about Vietnam for 15 years, and he said he was a war hero,” Trump said to reporters in the Rose Garden. “He said he...

    Kanye West delivered a speech to the cast and audience of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” in spite of the fact that NBC had already apparently cut the feed, moving to the credits. NBC cut the feed and went to credits, running short on time, before West finished his musical performance — but West went on to deliver a speech in spite of the fact that he was no longer on the air. West, whose support for people like Candace Owens and President Donald Trump has stirred social media to the boiling point on a number of occasions, began by telling...

    After this weekÂ’s devastating hearings involving Christine Blassey Ford, who testified that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the 80s, we werenÂ’t sure what SNL would roll out of the gate with. Over the last few years, SNL has been an Emmy winning satire on the state of American politics, but sometimes laughter isnÂ’t enough. When it calls for it, Saturday Night Live doesnÂ’t hesitate to ditch the traditional cold open to address the issues of the week. When the Las Vegas shooting happened, the show opened with James Aldean performing a tribute. Following Donald TrumpÂ’s election,...

    "NBC Nightly News" suffered its lowest-rated season ever, according to Nielsen Media Research, but still topped ABC and CBS in the key younger demographic that advertisers covet most. The Lester Holt-anchored program dropped to an average of 8.153 million total viewers per evening, which marks its lowest average since Nielsen began tracking via electronic data in 1991. That was still good enough for second place behind ABC's "World News Tonight" with David Muir, which delivered 8.637 million viewers for the 2017-2018 season. "The CBS Evening News" with Jeff Glor was third with 6.209 million total viewers. NBC did score 1.851...

    More American voters now oppose Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination than support it after he was accused of committing sexual assault while he was in high school, with opposition increasing 9 points since last month, according to a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Kavanaugh has categorically denied the accusation, which delayed his scheduled confirmation vote before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and which has roiled American politics less than seven weeks before the 2018 midterm elections. In the poll — which was conducted Sunday (when the accusation from Christine Blasey Ford was first made public) through Wednesday — 38...

    There are critical points about the 70th Emmy Awards to keep in mind, starting with this: The ceremony airs Monday. Typically held on a Sunday, it was punted one day so this year’s host network, NBC, could accommodate its “Sunday Night Football” franchise (New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys, for viewers inclined toward that spectacle). As for what the 8-11 p.m. EDT awards telecast will offer, the basics are 26 categories with nominees including defending drama champ “The Handmaid’s Tale.” It’s challenged by 2016 winner “Game of Thrones,” which aired outside the eligibility window for last year’s awards and wants...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Sunday that he believes President Trump and his lawyers are "terrified" at the prospect of what former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort could tell prosecutors as part of a new cooperation agreement. "They may think they know what Manafort has to say because he was part of that joint defense agreement, but they have to know that he may not have told them the full truth," Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence panel, said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "They’re terrified of what he has to say," he continued. "I’m surprised that we...

    On NBC’s Thursday morning broadcast of the “Today” show, former CIA director John Brennan repeatedly praised the unknown author of the New York Times’s recent anti-Trump op-ed as a supreme example of “courageous” American patriotism. While admitting that the anonymous writer was committing “active insubordination” with the piece, Brennan justified his or her actions by claiming that because Trump is too “unfit” to be President, the writer is admirably trying to “prevent disasters” in the future. “I think there are two major takeaways,” Brennan told “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie in relation to the op-ed. “One is, what the author...

    A Hillary Clinton presidency would have been even more disruptive that the current Donald Trump administration, historian and prolific author Niall Ferguson told CNBC on Thursday. "There would have been an almost immediate impeachment process," Ferguson said in an interview with CNBC's Steve Sedgwick at the Ambrosetti Forum in Italy on Thursday. "More importantly, Trump supporters would have bought the story that the election had been rigged and you would have had Trump supporters with their pitchforks, or more likely semi-automatics, in a very ugly mood," he added. An anonymous op-ed published by The New York Times on Wednesday painted...
