    On its 'Today Show' earlier this morning, NBC revealed that it has signed former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest as a political analyst. Earnest is expected to provide political commentary on NBC and MSNBC. And, in an hilarious welcoming statement, the Today Show's Savannah Guthrie warned Earnest that he would now have to disavow himself of his political bias to provide impartial political analysis...just before inviting him to take shots at Republicans. "White House Press Secretary under President Obama we're pleased to announce is joining us a political analyst." "Now you have to wear your analyst hat, not...

Earnest, a Kansas City native, served as White House Press Secretary from 2014 to 2017. Axios obtained an internal memo from NBC New President Noah Oppenheim and MSNBC President Phil Griffin. "A native of Kansas City, Josh graduated from Rice University with a degree in political science and policy studies.

    (Angry Patriot) – During her tenure at Fox News, Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly were constantly at each other’s throats — often over her selfish attitude and need to make everything about her. So, it makes perfect sense that O’Reilly revealed that her nickname was “Me-Again” Kelly, via Washington Feed. According to O’Reilly, it was “always about Megyn,” which is not hard to believe. All of the drama surrounding Kelly is coming out in the open after she tore up her contract with Fox News, with some months still remaining on it. Kelly was on a break from Fox News...

    Next, Williams offered this glaring slip of how overwhelmingly Democratic the media is, fretting that the Russians could have interfered in the election to the point that they barred Clinton and the Democrats from winning: Was there any engineering of the work by the Russians to undermine the election of Hillary Clinton? What he just said a moment ago, is could this all be a coincidence, the answer he said is yes, it could be, but he said there's equally information that these contacts are not unrelated.

    MSNBC’s big “Trump tax return” scoop has caused friction between the cable news network and parent NBC, according to insiders. “[MSNBC] announced it on Twitter, and [NBC] found out when [the general public] did,” said a source. “[MSNBC president] Phil Griffin was trying to undermine [NBC News president] Noah Oppenheim. There was never a conversation. They overplayed their hand in a huge way.” Host Rachel Maddow teased the story on Twitter, then withheld the story till later in her program, revealing in a big ­anticlimax that Trump paid $38 million in taxes in 2005. “It’s their cable network, but it’s...

    The theory that Russia won the November election for Donald Trump through some vague meddling, so dominates cable news right now that it is worth summing up exactly what we know and what we do not know about that story. As of today, there is no evidence that the Russian government tampered with voting machines or hacked any votes in November. There's no evidence that the Russians collaborated with Donald Trump or his campaign to win the election. There is no evidence that Russian propaganda swung a single vote away from Hillary Clinton. There is in other words no reason...

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday accused NBC of “intentionally” interfering in the 2016 presidential election to undermine President Trump’s campaign. “Consider the infamous ‘Access Hollywood’ tape,” Carlson said, referencing a controversial recording of Trump lewdly discussing women in 2005. "That tape belonged to NBC. It was shot by NBC cameramen for an NBC show on NBC property. So how did it wind up in the hands of the Washington Post, which broke the story?” “How, in other words, did valuable intellectual property from one news organization end up benefitting a competitor? Intentionally, that’s the short answer.” Carlson mocked...

    On February 28, President Trump signed the repeal of Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban. On March 2, SELF magazine reported that Trump had ended firearm background checks for persons who were severely mentally ill. This is Fake News 101 and it is a mantra that many other mainstream outlets have also pushed. For example, also on March 2, NBC News reported that Trump ended firearm “gun checks for people with mental illness” and during the process of repealing of the ban NYT, NYDN, and HuffPost accused Republicans of helping the mentally ill get guns.

    There was no press honeymoon for President Trump during his first month in office. A meticulous new study by the Media Research Center finds that 88 percent of the broadcast news coverage of Mr. Trump and his team was “hostile” during the first 30 days of office. The coverage was intense and plentiful. The study, which analyzed both tone and content for evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS, found that the “Big Three” networks produced 16 hours of coverage on the new president and his staff. That is over half — 54 percent — of their total coverage for...

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...

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.

    Following President Trump’s Wednesday press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker passive aggressively savaged Christian Broadcast Network’s David Brody and Townhall editor Katie Pavlich for questions to Trump that Welker deemed not to be “tough questions” concerning Mike Flynn. Welker told NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt that it was “striking” to witness the President inform the media that he believe Flynn “was treated unfairly” thanks to “leaks in the media — leaks by the intelligence community to the media.” Welker Passive Aggressively Attacks Brody, Pavlich for Not Asking Trump ‘Tough Questions’ However,...

"This is a real gun and anyone can buy it, no background check required," Jeff Rossen, NBC News national investigative correspondent, said as the segment opened. "It's perfectly legal." {..snip..}

    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...

    Back in the days of intense Harry Potter warfare, I wrote an "On Religion" column in which a very articulate mother explained why she was seriously considering homeschooling her child. First of all, she said it was clear that her local public schools didn't take religion all that seriously. 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...

    Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly's arrival at NBC News, where she is to replace hosts Tamron Hall and Al Roker on the third hour of the Today show, has triggered anger from the National Association of Black Journalists, which claims the network is engaging in "whitewashing." [Snip] It added that Hall and Roker's strong ratings deserve "praise, not punishment," and then took a swing at Kelly, claiming that she has "a well-documented history of offensive remarks regarding people of color."

In a statement Wednesday, Hall said, “The last ten years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful. I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my...
