    Executives from several television networks held a conference call on Monday to discuss Donald Trump's campaign treatment of the press, but no immediate action is expected to come from the first call, sources familiar with the call told POLITICO. Another call is scheduled for this afternoon. Representatives from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CNN discussed how embeds and reporters from outlets are being treated, including being pushed into media "pens." The Washington Post was first to report on the conference call. It's unlikely a formal unified message will be sent to the Trump campaign unless all the networks agree on...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” the deputy national security adviser for strategic communication for President Barack Obama Ben Rhodes said the president is not worried about America taking Syrian refugees despite reports that at least one man linked to the Paris attacks registered as refugee in Greece. Host Chuck Todd said, “If anything, ISIS looks like they’re more ambitious than ever.” Rhodes replied, “Well clearly, Chuck, they’ll have to be an intensification of our efforts, to look at what has worked in the application of the strategy and what hasn’t.

    On Thursday night and Friday morning, NBC News tried their best to go after Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson by attempting to make a mountain out of a molehill of his relationship with a man who was convicted nearly a decade ago of insurance fraud while ignoring the ongoing investigation of Hillary Clinton over her private e-mail server. Even though competitors ABC and CBS didn’t cover this story, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt hyped on Thursday that “Republican frontrunner Ben Carson is facing new questions about his friendship with a convicted felon.

    The United States presidential election of 1980 was the 49th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 4, 1980. The contest was between incumbent Democratic President Jimmy Carter and his Republican opponent, former California Governor Ronald Reagan, as well as Republican Congressman John B. Anderson, who ran as an independent. Reagan, aided by the Iran hostage crisis and a worsening economy at home marked by high unemployment and inflation, won the election in a landslide, receiving the highest number of electoral votes ever won by a non-incumbent presidential candidate.

    Ben Carson has surged into the lead of the Republican presidential race, getting support from 29 percent of GOP primary voters, according to a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. That's the highest percentage any GOP candidate has obtained so far in the survey. Carson's 29 percent is followed by Donald Trump at 23 percent, Marco Rubio at 11 percent, Ted Cruz at 10 percent and Jeb Bush at 8 percent. These findings are similar to a New York Times/CBS poll released last week, which also showed Carson in first place in the national GOP contest.

While Rather briefly admitted that CNBC"didn’t do it perfectly" the liberal journalist quickly blamed the GOP presidential candidates whose "constituency loves attacks on the press. So the moderators open themselves to some criticism." -Rather continued to dismiss the substance of the criticism against CNBC's biased debate and argued that it was just a made up issue by conservatives:

The official added that Beck is being considered because he is a 'fair reviewer' and is liked 'in and out of the Tea Party.'

One of the best nights he’s had in years. Then I did Colbert’s show. That got fantastic ratings. He beat Fallon by a lot. Since then, NBC and I get along great.” “The Tonight Show” drew 4.46 million viewers when Trump appeared on Sept. 11, its biggest Friday audience in 18 months. Trump’s Sept. 22 sit-down on “The Late Show” on CBS averaged 4.56 million viewers,...

Chris Christie accused CNBC's Republican presidential debate moderators of showing "bias" that he termed "despicable" but pooh-poohed the Republican National Committee's move to suspend plans for a Feb. 26 GOP presidential primary debate with NBC as a bit much. "If you're running for president of the United States and you can't handle yourself against three CNBC moderators without crying foul and calling for intervention then you're not going to do very well against Vladimir Putin, either," Christie said. The governor's comments were a veiled rebuke to the GOP's frontrunners, Donald Trump...

    Over the last two presidential debates, both Democratic and Republican candidates have asserted that the television news media is biased and has done a poor job informing voters of the most pressing issues in the election. And while their focus is on things like the type of questions asked by debate moderators, they are overlooking much clearer signs of potential conflicts of interest. Fundraising disclosures released this month and in July reveal that lobbyists for media companies are raising big money for establishment presidential candidates, particularly Hillary Clinton. The giant media companies that shape much of the coverage of the...

The GOP's gripes against the media are legion. Over the past several election cycles, they have reached a fever pitch, with the presidential debates largely to blame. The problem, from a Republican standpoint, was epitomized by Candy Crowley's intervention on behalf of President Obama during his crucial second debate with Mitt Romney in 2012.

Trump has stressed that he is willing to self-fund his campaign with up to $100 million, but through September, his campaign actually spent slightly more money from Trump supporters than from Trump himself.
