  • Nets Hype Kushner ‘Under Scrutiny,’ Then Admit He’s Not Accused of Anything

    On Friday, all three network morning shows began with anchors breathlessly declaring that President Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner was “under scrutiny” in the FBI’s Russia investigation. However, after offering the screaming salacious headlines, each broadcast quietly admitted that Kushner was not the target of the investigation nor was he accused of any wrongdoing. Opening NBC’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer hyped: “Under scrutiny, President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, now part of the FBI’s Russia investigation.” Minutes later, fellow co-host Savannah Guthrie promised viewers there was “fresh turmoil facing the Trump administration.” Correspondent Peter Alexander further sensationalized the...
  • Jared Kushner Now Under FBI Scrutiny in Russia Probe, Say Officials

    Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and one of his senior advisers, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russia investigation, multiple U.S. officials told NBC News. Investigators believe Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry, officials said. That does not mean they suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him. The FBI's scrutiny of Kushner places the bureau's sprawling counterintelligence and criminal investigation not only on the doorstep of the White House, but in the Trump family circle. The Washington Post first reported last week that a senior White House official close to Trump was a "person...

    I was reading this post on American Digest, "All boredom amused:" Rhyming History, Trump, and the Media as Foreseen in Network, 1976,” and wondered how the “Money Speech” might have been written A.D. (After Donald). It might have gone something like this: "You have meddled with the primary forces of nature, Mr. MAGA, and I won't have it! Is that clear?"You think you merely stopped HILLARY CLINTON’S PRESIDENCY AND PROTECTED YOUR PRECIOUS 2ND AMENDMENT. That is not the case. YOU have taken POWER AND CONTROL AWAY FROM YOUR BETTERS, DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVES, and now YOU must put it back! It is...

    Saturday Night Live‘s new “Weekend Update” team of Michael Che and Colin Jost have had to deal with more real backlash than most fake news anchors. Jost has been criticized for a joke he did about transgendered people. Che’s been lambasted for comments he made about street harassment and racism in Boston. But yet they still soldier on, all in the name of comedy. GQ recently caught up with the co-hosts, interviewing them about the state of comedy in 2017 and what it’s like on Weekend Update in the Trump era. In regards to whether people are too sensitive these...
  • NBC Smears Roger Ailes as Someone Who Diminished American Politics

    Many conservatives were in mourning Thursday after news broke of the death of Fox News mastermind Roger Ailes. In a statement, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell stated that “the Left would command a monopoly control of the so-called "news" media but for the Fox News Channel, and FNC would not exist but for him.” But for NBC, it was a time to tear down what he did for conservative media and politics in general. “The coroner says Ailes died from complications related to a head injury that he suffered after a fall in his home in Florida,” announced Anchor...

    The liberal media are currently up in arms over President Trump’s labeling of the investigation into Russian hacking and the 2016 presidential campaign as a “witch hunt.” All three broadcast networks led their Thursday evening newscasts with Trump’s use of the phrase, with NBC’s Lester Holt describing Trump as “lashing out.”The liberal media are currently up in arms over President Trump’s labeling of the investigation into Russian hacking and the 2016 presidential campaign as a “witch hunt.” All three broadcast networks led their Thursday evening newscasts with Trump’s use of the phrase, with NBC’s Lester Holt describing Trump as “lashing...

    NBCNews.com on Thursday posted a two minute and 34 second preview clip of anchor Lester Holt’s exclusive sit-down with President Donald Trump.

  • Aetna Pulls Out of ObamaCare: ABC, NBC Ignore, Mocked Trump for Saying System was Imploding

    NewsBusters ^ | May 11, 2017 | By Mike Ciandella
    The major health insurance provider Aetna announced that it would be pulling out of the last two states where it still participated in ObamaCare. Yet, the morning news shows of ABC and NBC completely ignored this important news story, while CBS This Morning gave it a mere 25 seconds. This continues a longstanding network news tradition of defending the Affordable Care Act and ignoring its failures. In a study released on October 28, 2016, the MRC’s Bias by the Minute project detailed how the evening news shows on these three networks routinely ignored or barely covered ObamaCare’s failures during that...

    NBC anchor who gave Clinton a pass, accused president of racism gets exclusive interview A NBC News anchor who was seen as soft on Hillary Clinton and tough on Donald Trump in the first 2016 presidential debate will now get a rare one-on-one interview with President Trump. Numerous media outlets reported on Tuesday morning that NBC News’ Lester Holt will get the on-camera sit-down with Trump this week. The Hill reported that the interview will air both on Thursday’s broadcast of “NBC Nightly News” and on Friday morning’s “Today Show.” Holt’s interview comes at a time that conservative outlets are...

    All three networks on Monday excitedly promoted the anti-Donald Trump potential of the testimony of a woman the President fired. CBS This Morning predicted that former acting Attorney General Sally Yates would deliver “explosive” “bombshells” about possible connections to Russia. Reporters on NBC’s Today reassured viewers that the Democrat was totally reliable. ABC's Good Morning America included a clip of liberal Senator Dianne Feinstein to make that point. A network graphic on CBS screamed, “Bombshell Testimony? Fmr. Acting AG Yates to Testify on Flynn & Russia.” Co-host Charlie Rose opened the show by trumpeting, “Testimony on Capitol Hill today could...

    In the cold open of the May 6th broadcast, NBC's Saturday Night Live took on its own network property, MSNBC morning political talk show Morning Joe. Alex Moffat's Joe Scarborough used couple nicknames like "Mika mouse" and "Mika boo" throughout the segment to refer to his fiance and Morning Joe while panel regulars expressed how uncomfortable they were by the closeness of the hosts. (Panelists included Mike Barnicle, Mark Halperin and Willie Geist.) VIDEO at link...

    Oops. The Callum Borchers of the world want “fake news” to mean only one thing: Crazy, sensationalist web sites with no journalistic credentials publish headlines like, “Obama born in Kenya, pledge loyalty to mosque there.” But fake news doesn’t always take that form. Sometimes fake news is 50 percent true, or even 90 percent true. But it’s the part they leave out, or fudge, or alter ever so slightly that not only makes it fake, but makes it so pernicious that someone reported it as fact.
  • Brian Williams called out for ‘patronizing’ Rachel Maddow

    Brian Williams has been rebuked by MSNBC for being “patronizing” to the network’s biggest star, Rachel Maddow. After Williams hijacked Maddow’s show to break the Syria missile news earlier this month, he turned to her live on air at the end of the segment and said,“Thanks for visiting tonight. Glad you were a part of our coverage.” Viewers — who were already mad that MSNBC slipped “Lyin’ Brian” in to break the news when Maddow was already at the anchor desk talking about Syria — flipped out. @Barbvas tweeted, “Annoyed to hear Brian Williams thanking Rachel Maddow for assisting with...

    After spending months trying to get Trump voters to express regret for their support of the President, on Thursday, NBC News political analyst Nicolle Wallace took to the Today show to eagerly announce that she finally found a regretful supporter. He turned out to a liberal millennial who backed Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary before voting for Donald Trump in the general election.          Wallace led off the segment by reminding viewers of her crusade to understand Trump voters: “So we began this journey five months ago with the goal of meeting and listening to the people...
  • 7.5 Billion People and NBC Can’t Find One to Say Something Good about Trump

    It’s unanimous! 7.5 billion to zero! No one in the entire world likes Donald Trump! That would be the conclusion you’d have to draw if you watched the segment NBC’s Richard Engel prepared for today’s Morning Joe on international reaction to Trump’s first 100 days. From the UK to South Korea, the West Bank to Germany, there was amazing consensus against Trump. Among people Engel aired, the best anyone had to say about Trump was British news anchor Alistair Stewart’s observation that at least we’ve literally survived his first 100 days. Said Stewart: there isn’t “all-out nuclear conflict—although it is...

    Megyn Kelly is ready to get back on TV. Page Six has exclusively learned that Kelly will officially start at NBC next month. “She will start in May, and her Sunday show will premiere in June,” a network insider told us. Kelly had been expected to start in July after her Fox contract expired, but she was just released from her Fox deal two weeks ago. She will join Kate Snow as part of NBC News’ Sunday night programming. NBC News vet and former “Dateline” executive producer David Corvo will executive produce Kelly’s Sunday show with another longtime NBC producer,...

    Troubling news broke out of North Korea early Sunday morning after an American citizen was arrest by North Korean officials on Saturday. “It has been confirmed that another American has been arrested in North Korea's capital, Pyongyang, which about 120 miles north from here from Seoul,” reported ABC’s Bob Woodruff during Good Morning America. It’s shocking news that hits just as tensions between the U.S. and communist regime are near a boiling point. Despite those facts, NBC’s Willie Geist failed to mention the development during his show, Sunday Today. “His name so far is not known,” noted Woodruff. “But the...
