    A U.S. Navy destroyer was involved in a minor collision with a Japanese tugboat Saturday during a scheduled exercise, according to the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet. The USS Benfold, a guided-missile destroyer, sustained minor damage when a tugboat lost propulsion and drifted into the ship, the Navy said. No one was injured on either vessel and an initial assessment of the damage showed that the destroyer only sustained minimal damage including scrapes. But the accident comes at a time when the Navy's 7th Fleet and the U.S. Pacific Command have come under increased scrutiny after several deadly collisions in the...

    Fearing that America was one step closer to becoming a theocracy with the opening of the privately-funded Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C., on Thursday and Friday, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today hyped the supposed “controversy” swirling around the institution, even claiming that a “cloud of suspicion” hung over the building as it opened its doors. “Coming up on CBS This Morning, I’ll tell you why this museum is generating some controversy. It’s just a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol,” warned correspondent Chip Reid on Thursday. Introducing the segment minutes later, co-host Charlie Rose emphasized that the...
  • Science proves kids are bad for Earth. Morality suggests we stop having them.

    A startling and honestly distressing view is beginning to receive serious consideration in both academic and popular discussions of climate change ethics. According to this view, having a child is a major contributor to climate change. The logical takeaway here is that everyone on Earth ought to consider having fewer children. Although culturally controversial, the scientific half of this position is fairly well-established. Several years ago, scientists showed that having a child, especially for the world’s wealthy, is one of the worst things you can do for the environment. That data was recycled this past summer in a paper showing...

    Dan Rather, who famously lost his job after he was caught spreading a made-up story about former President George W. Bush, is making the rounds again to discuss accuracy in media and the proper role of the press in our republic. Because this is real life and the producers of NBC's "Today" show lack any sense of self-awareness. "[A] recent poll that said nearly half of people think the media make up stories!" co-host Savannah Guthrie said as she kicked off the morning segment. Referring to a Politico survey released in October, she then turned to Rather and said,...

    The Anti-Defamation League says Larry David’s Saturday Night Live monologue – in which the Curb Your Enthusiasm creator pondered his dating options in a concentration camp – was “offensive, insensitive & unfunny all at same time.” The ADL’s stance, tweeted by the organization’s CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, was in line with plenty of Twitterers who started slamming the bit before the show’s cast made its goodnights. “He managed to be offensive, insensitive & unfunny all at the same time Quite a feat,” wrote Greenblatt.

    Marketers have put NBCUniversal on notice: Stop covering NFL players' national-anthem protests, or we'll pull our ads. That's according to Linda Yaccarino, the chairman of advertising sales at NBCUniversal, who spoke during a keynote interview at an event held Friday in New York at the ad agency RGA. Yaccarino said no advertisers had pulled out of NFL games because of the protests, but that advertisers were telling the network that could change. "Marketers have said, 'We will not be part of the NFL if you continue covering it,'" Yaccarino said. Since last year, when Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers...

    President Trump's approval rating dropped to 38 percent in October, the lowest recorded amount of support from voters since he took office in January, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday. [Snip] Voters are most unhappy with Trump's handling of the NFL players' protests, recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and the healthcare battle in Congress. Between 54 percent and 59 percent of people disapprove of Trump's work in those areas. [Snip] Currently, 48 percent of voters want a Democratic-controlled Congress and 41 percent want Republicans to maintain control of both chambers. The 2018 Senate...

    TV network executives are scrambling to solve the NFL ratings decline and are looking to possibly cut games on Thursday to prevent “over-saturation.” According to Sports Business Journal, there are talks to cut “Thursday Night Football” from 18 games a season to eight games. The report states there is a plan to pull games played in the UK back to 1 p.m. ET, or 6 p.m. London time. “Ten years ago, the NFL had 32 game windows through week six,” the publication said. “This year, it is up to 39, a 22 percent increase. It’s even more crowded in college,...

    Megyn Kelly’s slot of the “Today” show desperately needs a ratings boost after less than a month on the air. On Thursday, Hoda Kotb, the ever-upbeat popular “Today” host from another hour appeared as a guest. They chatted. They danced. They tried to get the audience on its feet dancing, too. Critics hated the moment. “I’ve never been so embarrassed,” tweeted BuzzFeed News’s Kate Aurthur. “I feel nothing but second-hand embarrassment for Megyn Kelly,” chimed in media critic Ian Miles Cheong. Vulture called the clip “22 nearly unbearable seconds.”

    Miami Rep. Frederica Wilson angled for another 15 minutes of fame this week, claiming that in his consoling call to a Gold Star widow President Trump insulted the woman and trivialized her husband’s death. When it comes to racially inflammatory accusations, Wilson has a history. So does NBC, which happily spread the Trump “insults the widow” story. NBC has come under particular fire from Trump in the past few weeks for its propagation of “fake news,” and Trump does not know the half of it. In March 2012, Wilson and NBC came together to spread one of the most consequential...

An NBC spokesperson says the network is not investigating the matter, despite new revelations that Oppenheim sat at small table with Weinstein at an exclusive New York gala in April, when [Noah] Oppenheim reportedly already knew that his reporter, celebrity scion Ronan Farrow, had...

    It felt like a little bit of history was being made on Monday Night Football as the Tennessee Titans finally snapped their streak of 11 consecutive losses to the Indianapolis Colts. However, as social media sparked with ESPN not showing the playing of the national anthem, another type of history was also being made: Last night’s primetime broadcast of the Titans’ 36-22 victory stumbled to a season low with a 6.1 in metered market results. In a season stained by overall ratings declines and political controversy, that NFL Week 6 rating is down 13% from the early numbers of the...

Multiple sources said a male editor for the "Today" show compiled and leaked the eight-minute video to Mediaite last month of O'Donnell yelling at his staff during the Aug. 29 broadcast of his show, "The Last Word," according to Page Six. In the clip, an increasingly perturbed O’Donnell slams his fist on...

    What did NBC News know, and when did it know it? After Harvey Weinstein and Ben Affleck, no one’s looking worse in this Hollywood sex scandal than NBC “News.” They had the Weinstein story, cold, and first, but they spiked it, to protect their fellow traveler, the gross 300-pound Democrat schlockmeister. I know, you are “saddened and angry,” as Ben Affleck would put it, by this news. After all, this is the same very ethical network that has employed, or continues to employ, such extinguished “journalists” as Brian Williams, the Rev. Al Sharpton, Low IQ Mika, Comrade Chris Matthews, F....

    President Trump's suggestion that NBC should potentially have its broadcast license challenged has prompted a wave of condemnation from both sides of the aisle, with many saying that such a move would violate the First Amendment. Trump lashed out at NBC News on Wednesday after the outlet reported that Trump had suggested increasing the nation's nuclear arms stockpile during a meeting with top Cabinet officials. "With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!" Trump tweeted.

    Ronan Farrow’s bombshell investigation into Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct was reportedly rejected by NBC over sourcing concerns before he took it to The New Yorker magazine. Farrow had been working on the investigative piece for the peacock network — where he serves as a contributor, according to the Huffington Post. Farrow and NBC even had incriminating audio in August where Weinstein admitting to groping a woman, the website said.
