  • Chuck Todd Grills Mnuchin: What Should I Tell My Kids When Trump Uses "Vulgarities"

    (snip) NBC's 'Meet the Press' host Chuck Todd repeatedly asked Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin about the president's attitude, language, and word choice. President Trump made fun of the NBC host's "sleepy eyes" at a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday, and speculated that NBC might be "worse than CNN". "He's a sleeping son of a bitch, I'll tell you," Trump said about Chuck Todd's droopy eyes. "I understand you wanted to get back on an economic message, but ... last night he was praising authoritarian figures in China and North Korea and encouraging boos at the American press," Chuck Todd reported....
  • Meet the Press Panel Freaks: Incompetent Trump Handing NoKo a Victory

    03/11/2018 6:49:44 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 75 replies ^ | March 11, 2018 | Nicholas Fondacaro
    When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war. Moderator Chuck Todd, still bitter because Trump called him a “sleeping son of a...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in an interview broadcast Sunday said she knows who she is when pressed about her claims of Native-American heritage. She was questioned during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" about an editorial in a Massachusetts newspaper, "Warren must resolve debate on heritage, which said a DNA test would "permanently resolve the issue." Look, I do know. I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere," Warren said.

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? Hey, Im old enough to remember last week, when every fake journalist in Texas and America was telling us that Texas senate candidate Robert Beto ORourke, an Irish guy who represents a largely-Hispanic congressional district (thus the nickname), was the Democrat Partys rising star who was going to whip Ted Cruz in the general election this coming November. Yeah, that was just another bit of fake news fed to all the fake reporters by the Democrats, who are desperate to pretend they have momentum and...

    Megyn Kellys Sunday night newsmagazine on NBC was originally billed as a weekly program but has been demoted to a program that will air periodically, according to a press release sent Tuesday by the network. "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" had an eight-episode run in the summer of 2017 to kick off Kellys tour at the Peacock Network before her 9 a.m. ET daily show premiered in the fall. The Sunday show was always scheduled to take a break for NBCs coverage of Sunday Night Football and the Winter Olympics but was expected to return. NBC News sent a press...
  • Nets Go Gaga for Wild Nunberg Speculation About Trump Collusion

    Monday was marked by the rolling train wreck that was former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg’s seemingly non-stop appearances on cable news shows taunting Special Counsel Robert Mueller for subpoenaing him. During his wild interviews (which lasted from mid-afternoon into the night), Nunberg made numerous suggestions that federal investigators may have some kind of case against President Trump. And that was all the liberal network news outlets needed to run with it. Both CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight kicked off their programs with the jaw-dropping spectacle. On CBS, anchor Jeff Glor even announced that they were pushing back...
  • Dem Mayor Helps Criminals Evade ICE, CBS & NBC Call it a Feud

    In an attempt to excuse Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf’s outrageous decision to help criminal aliens evade federal authorities, CBS and NBC portrayed the Democrat’s unlawful action as the result of a “feud” with the Trump administration over immigration policy. At least those two networks covered the story, unlike ABC, which has failed to discover the controversy.   “Much more ahead on tonight’s CBS Evening News, including the mayor who defied a federal agency,” anchor Jeff Glor teased Wednesday night. Introducing the report minutes later, he declared: “The battle over sanctuary cities has exploded into a public feud between the...

    NBC's $12billion deal to cover the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang may not see the profits the network hopes for, as the games are rated the worst ever in NBC viewership history. This year's Winter Games in South Korea saw the number of views decline by 24 per cent compared to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, within the 18 to 49 years demographic. The slump in views may have burned a hole in NBC's wallet after the network invested $12billion to cover the cream-of-the-crop competition, but had to offer free ad time to advertisers when it failed to...

    Megyn Kelly has fashioned herself as a champion of the #MeToo movement, filling her NBC talk show, Megyn Kelly Today, with brave women fighting injustice. But a former colleague says its all an act. Shes disrespectful, Iren Halperin, a Fox News makeup artist for 20 years who retired in 2016, told Page Six. Shes not for women. Shes extremely mean and rude to women.

    CNN ^ | February 24, 2018 | Ahiza Garcia
    In 2011, NBC paid a total of $4.38 billion for the rights to the next four Olympics. Three years later it bought another six for $7.7 billion. At the time, the deals looked to many like a sure thing. Now, they have started looking like they could end up being more of a burden than a boon. For years, the conventional wisdom in TV had been that even as younger viewers turned away from TV, live sports were invulnerable -- after all, the thinking went, people wanted to watch live sports, well, live.

    After almost being eliminated earlier in the XXIII Winter Games, last nights all-time first gold medal in curling for Team USA was a sweeter than usual win for skipper John Shuster and crew. However, played past the midnight hour on NBC Sports Network, the victory, witnessed by a crowd-pleasing First Daughter Ivanka Trump and others from the US delegation there for Sundays Closing Ceremony, did nothing to help NBC primetime ratings bottom line. And bottom is the operative word today as Olympics fatigue has definitely set-in for the final stretch of the 2018 international competition for the Comcast-owned outlet.

    The slip in NBC's ratings have caused tension at the network and even Lester Holt's position at NBC Nightly News is reportedly in jeopardy. ABC's World News Tonight with David Muir passed Holt in overall audience during the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, causing some top NBC executives to sweat. Sources told PageSix that if Holt's stats were ever to get the point that the network needed to make a change in the anchor's chair, NBC would be in a major bind.

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? President Trump, as only he can do it, got onto his Twitter account Tuesday evening and trolled the fake journalists at CNN and MSNBC who helped promote one of the fake Russian-staged anti-Trump rallies on November 12, 2016: Bad ratings @CNN & @MSNBC got scammed when they covered the anti-Trump Russia rally wall-to-wall. They probably knew it was Fake News but, because it was a rally against me, they pushed it hard anyway. Two really dishonest newscasters, but the public is wise! Never. Stop. Tweeting....

    Watching the Olympics was a big deal when I was a kid, a pleasurable family affair. I tuned in to the 2018 Olympics expecting to enjoy extraordinary performances. Instead, the announcer began introducing the next performer as a hero for the LGBT community. I immediately turned the channel. Folks, I am so sick of leftists corrupting everything, usurping every opportunity to promote the left's anti-God and anti-America agendas. When will We the People just say no? A U.S. Olympic team homosexual skater, in essence, gave Vice President Pence his middle finger, refusing to meet Pence. Leftists hate Pence for blocking...

    In something dubbed "investigative" reporting, NBC would have us know that San Francisco's Tenderloin district is a pigpen, filled to the brim with junkie needles and human excrement. The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of downtown San Francisco in search of trash, needles, and feces.The investigation revealed trash littered across every block.Survey also found41blocks dotted with needles and96blocks sullied with piles of feces. File under non-news, unless you like minutia.You wonder how much time they invested on the story for being able to tell us that.As if it were something new. Anyone who has lived for...

    After some thought, Adam Rippon has decided to decline the offer of becoming an NBC correspondent for the remainder of the Olympic games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Earlier today, it was announced that the figure skater, who has become a prominent highlight of these games, was going to have his hand at commentary. However, he has decided to turn down the offer after he realized he would have to give up his Olympic standing and credential for the position. By joining NBC as a correspondent, he wouldnt be allowed to participate in the closing ceremony. I am so flattered that...
