    Megyn Kelly is so toxic that she is reportedly dragging down NBC’s lucrative Today franchise as viewers are just tuning out NBC because of the vapid former Fox News talent. According to a report in the New York Post’s Page Six, “Kelly’s hour of ‘Today’ is down 32 percent compared to a year ago. And ‘Kathie Lee & Hoda’ is down 26 percent.” “Not only are ratings plummeting since Megyn Kelly joined the ‘Today’ franchise, but the numbers show Kelly’s lead-in has also affected Kathie Lee [Gifford] and Hoda Kotb’s show, which follows straight afterwards,” a source told the outlet....

    President Trump openly threatened Wednesday to go after the licenses of NBC News and the "Networks," as he ratcheted up his complaints about "Fake News." “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. This was after he challenged the accuracy of an NBC News report that said he sought a “nearly tenfold increase” in the nuclear arsenal during a summer meeting. “Fake @NBCNews made up a story that I wanted a ‘tenfold’ increase in our U.S. nuclear arsenal. Pure fiction,...

    During the Clinton Administration, the Drudge Report was just an obscure news accumulator site until it became the first news outlet to report the fact that Slick Willie was having an affair with one of his interns in the Oval Office. We found out later that several fake reporters at major mainstream media outlets had had that story, but sat on it for months until the Drudge revelation force them to actually do their jobs. Fast forward to 2017, and we have NBC News issuing a report Tuesday morning, based on nothing but the alleged statements of several unidentified sources,...

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday tweeted a smackdown of NBC News, calling the network "fake news" and "more dishonest than even CNN." " NBC news is #FakeNews and more dishonest than even CNN. They are a disgrace to good reporting. No wonder their news ratings are way down! " — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 4, 2017 The president's tweet comes amid a report from NBC on Tuesday night that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson nearly resigned after Trump's speech to the Boy Scouts and had called the president "a moron" after a meeting in July.

  • Yet Another Anonymously Sourced Trump-Russia Story Falls Apart

    dailycaller.com ^ | Peter Hasson
    Once again, a huge Trump-Russia story that relied upon anonymous sources has fallen apart. NBC News dropped what the network hyped as a “potential bombshell” last week. “Manafort Notes From Russian Meet Contain Cryptic Reference to ‘Donations,'” the original headline read. The story claimed that Manafort’s notes from the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with White House aide Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer included the word “donations” near a reference to the Republican National Committee. NBC began walking back the “potential bombshell” almost immediately, issuing a correction the same day noting that the word “donation” didn’t actually...

    On Wednesday, NBCNews.com published an Associated Press dispatch on the bribery trial of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez (N.J.), but there was one huge problem in that Menendez was labeled a Republican. Translation? NBC News saw no reason to engage in basic proofreading or got caught red-handed in the act of liberal bias. The unauthored post sat for well over two hours before being changed. NBCNews.com offered a correction at the bottom of the story: “CORRECTION (Sept. 6, 2017, 5:35 p.m.): An earlier version of this article misstated the party affiliation of Menendez. He is a Democrat, not a Republican.” Seeing...

    Things are not going well for Megyn Kelly. The NBC host’s show “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” has sunk to a new ratings low. Variety reports: Earlier in the night at 7 p.m. on NBC, “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” drew a 0.4 rating and 3.1 million viewers, the newsmagazine’s lowest total viewer number since it debuted at the beginning of June. Kelly also matched a series low in the key demo. For CBS, a new episode of “Big Brother” (1.8, 6 million) was even with last week’s Sunday airing. “Candy Crush” aired at 9 p.m., followed by a repeat...

    Brian Flood of The Wrap reported on Twitter that NBC and MSNBC star Katy Tur is having trouble with her transgender father again. "Hanna Zoey Tur ripped daughter, NBC's Katy Tur, as 'transphobic'" in Facebook message: "My daughter does not support the LGBT community." This is quite a surprise, given the negotiated peace between father and daughter as projected in Sunday's New York Times puff piece by Luisita Lopez Torregrosa. Ironically, although the Times headline was "You Can't Rattle Her," asking Tur about her father obviously rattled her: {..snip..}

    Megyn Kelly launched her new magazine at NBC Sunday, and the stakes couldn’t have been much higher for either. Kelly, now among the highest paid personalities on network news (nearly $20 million per year), left Fox News for the network earlier this year, and will most likely secure another role on the morning schedule later this year, in addition to this one. But first, she had to get through “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly,” a magazine show which was also inaugurated with a piece by Cynthia McFadden investigation about an addictive drug produced by Insys Therapeutics, and another piece by...

    NBC News was forced to issue a correction on Sunday evening after spinning its newest talent Megyn Kelly’s interview to falsely claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin “does not deny having compromising information” on President Donald Trump. To promote the debut of Kelly’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” program, NBC News tweeted, “EXCLUSIVE: Putin does not deny having compromising information on President Trump in interview with @megynkelly.” CNBC, NBC’s sister station, did not send out fake news, linking to the same story after tweeting, “Russia’s Putin denies having compromising information on Trump.” Reuters also reported on the interview and tweeted,...

    Former Fox News star and now NBC darling Megyn Kelly has a new show starting June 4 on the peacock network, appropriately nicknamed considering the prima donna status of its new centerfold, er, centerpiece of NBC. For her first show, she interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin at an international economic forum in St. Petersburg. NBC released a publicity photo of her sitting with Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Her attire seemed somewhat inappropriate for a past victim of sexual harassment and a self-proclaimed opponent of sexism in politics and the workplace. As Kristinn Taylor noted at Gateway Pundit:...

    Reporters on Monday fell for a fake "White House" document that supposedly showed President Donald Trump making unusual demands of his Israeli hosts during his trip abroad. The Twitter account Rogue White House Senior Advisor on Friday shared what it claimed was Trump's demands ahead of a trip to Israel, including roughly a metric ton of sugary and non-kosher junk food. .. Some elements of the purported demands were obvious jokes. The demand that microwaves remain unplugged was a mocking reference to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway's bizarre comment that the appliance could be used for spying, and the request...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” moderator Chuck Todd said Donald Trump’s presidency was “in crisis” because he said his “governing agenda” was going nowhere and he had credibility issues. Todd said,”It looks like the presidency is on an unsustainable trajectory.” He added, “Donald Trump is a president in crisis. His governing agenda is going nowhere, his credibility shattered with many. His public approval is mired in the 30s and 40s and the Russia crisis is not persuading even Republicans he can bounce back.”
