  • Rosie O'Donnell goes on a RAMPAGE after Bill Cosby victim Beverly Johnson demands to cut her out of

    Bill Cosby victim Beverly Johnson found herself in the middle of the war between Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg when she asked Whoopi if she would do a one-on-one interview on The View rather than be questioned by the other co-hosts. Apparently there was no such thing as a holiday cease-fire behind the scenes at the faltering daytime talk show after Rosie learned that Johnson would only appear on the show if Whoopi alone conducted the interview. The ex-supermodel had reached out to Whoopi privately to share her experience with Cosby after seeing the Oscar winner express endless support for...

    Rosie O'Donnell is a "malcontent" who is bringing down "The View" and is impossible to deal with ... so claim well-placed sources in the show's production. We're told Rosie came in thinking she'd be in the lead position at the table -- "the moderator." We're told she was outraged when it became clear the title and the power belonged to Whoopi.

    Rosie O'Donnell has gone ballistic...again. This time it's because producers of The View, backed by Whoopi Goldberg, want to draw in a younger audience and to that end add flash sales to the mix and finally fill the fifth seat - with a much younger host, a show insider tells MailOnline. The View is desperately trying to find younger viewers. Hosted by Whoopi, 58, Rosie, 52, Nicolle Wallace, 42, and Rosie Perez, 50, the show is drawing in a much older AARP-friendly audience. ABC executives are intent on making changes in an effort to attract viewers in the 18-to-34 demographic,...

    It's only day two of Rosie O'Donnell's return to The View and she's already made an enemy of her conservative co-host, former George W. aide Nicolle Wallace. The fracas started off with the question of whether President Obama is a people person and devolved when O'Donnell took offense at the assertion by Wallace that he might not be. 'I'm not saying things all Dems disagree with,' insisted the Republican PR whiz, before O'Donnell went on the attack.

    On Monday, MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell returned to the network after spending several weeks recovering from a motor vehicle accident in which he broke his hip in multiple places and sustained a variety of other injuries. While O’Donnell appeared totally healed from his ordeal, he came back a changed man on at least one issue: the Koch brothers. In an emotional monologue, O’Donnell opened up about the taxi accident that sent him and his brother to a hospital – a hospital which he praised profusely. That facility was the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, where David Koch...

Chuck Grassley on Friday sent a pointed letter to the state's Division of Revenue in which he outlines specific, outstanding questions that still swirl around the handling of former U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell’s tax records. “On multiple occasions, my staff has requested a copy of your records retention policy, the opportunity to speak with [officials at the state's Division of Revenue] and other clarifications related to these matters. To date, you have failed to respond,” the letter from the Iowa Republican reads in part. In a case first...

    After attacking Bill O'Reilly's history last week, I'll defend his sociology this week. On Monday, MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell ridiculed Fox News' O'Reilly for saying that single motherhood is responsible for the the high black crime rate. O'Reilly said, quite correctly: "The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African-American family. Right now, about 73 percent of all black babies are born out of wedlock. That drives poverty. And the lack of involved fathers leads to young boys growing up resentful and unsupervised.

    Christine O’Donnell, the former Tea Party–backed Senate candidate from Delaware, was interviewed on Sean Hannity’s radio program today about the renewed investigation into whether she was targeted by the IRS during her 2010 campaign. She alleges that the IRS “set up a back door for people working in partisan offices to get into the IRS database” and use confidential tax information to influence elections. On the day she announced her 2010 Senate bid, O’Donnell said, the IRS erroneously issued a tax lien against her on a home she didn’t own anymore, which held that she owed the government $12,000.

Biden’s former seat. “Ms. O'Donnell, this is Dennis Martel, special agent with the U.S. Department of Treasury in Baltimore, Md. … We received information that your personal federal tax...

    The Romney campaign has been accused of deliberately getting the Republican presidential candidate booed by black people during his NAACP speech to attract votes 'in certain racist precincts', by MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell. Romney was booed for 15 seconds at the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People conference in Houston on Wednesday when he stated he would 'eliminate' unnecessary programmes like the Obamacare health reform. Democrats united in saying that Romney planned to get booed to appeal to his conservative base. But O'Donnell and his guests went a step further by saying that Romney was making a play...

The news of its demise comes two months after the ailing network announced it had hired Shane Farley (Rachel Ray, Rosie O’Donnell Show) to replace Page Hurwitz as the show’s executive producer and would move Rosie into a significantly smaller 70-seat studio. The latter was a bid to inspire a sense of intimacy and lower costs on a series that is averaging 190,000 viewers....

I think that if the tea party members took a closer look — a second look — at Gov. Romney’s record, they would realize that he’s with us. He was one of the first ones in in [Massachusetts Sen.] Scott Brown’s race,” she said during an interview at CPAC in Washington....

Monday's 7 p.m. premiere of "The Rosie Show" on OWN, with first guest Russell Brand, drew a very modest 497,000 total viewers, according to Nielsen. It's O'Donnell's first talk show since she left ABC's "The View" in 2007.

    Former Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell will speak at a tea party rally Saturday in Iowa after organizers Tuesday night reversed themselves again and re-invited her, CNN has learned. Earlier Tuesday, citing internal miscommunication problems, organizers rescinded an invitation to her, saying they realized they did not have enough space in the program for her. Ken Crow, founder of the Tea Party of America, said the group re-thought its decision because it was not right to cancel after offering her a role. Besides the communication issues, Crow told CNN another factor that led to the cancellation was some negative reaction...

    No doubt the News Journal “reporters” are hammering away at their keyboards after Christine O’Donnell’s appearance on Piers Morgan’s CNN show. O’Donnell was on to promote her book and the interview started out fairly well. She was amiable and Piers was nice enough but throughout the interview, Morgan continued to turn the topics away from the subject matter of the book, which is a return to our founding principles and an embrace of fiscal responsibility, limited government and a breakup of the crony capitalist system. Now, CNN’s website only shows the last few minutes of the exchange but for those...

    Via Gossip Cop, such is the viral potential of this video that you’re going to end up watching it somewhere. It might as well be here and now. I don’t understand her objection. Did Morgan not let her talk about her book at all during the course of the interview? Or is she just really, really opposed to talking about gay marriage for whatever reason? Unless there’s an agreement before the show that certain topics are off-limits, the host is usually free to ask anything he/she wants. Palin just did an hour of questions with reporters last week at the...

  • Christine O’Donnell Fires Back At Sen. McCain For Insulting Her On Senate Floor

    Mediaite ^ | 7/28/11 | Frances Martel
    In a fit of anti-Tea Party rage, Sen. John McCain tossed a media exposure lifesaver out to former Delaware senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell, insulting the Tea Party for having launched her to the Republican nomination. O’Donnell graciously accepted the opportunity to make headlines once again, releasing as epic a statement as we haven’t seen since the Homeric tribute to Newt Gingrich last May. Needless to say, being dismissed as a crazy candidate did not sit well with the Senate hopeful known mostly for having to clarify whether or not she was a witch. In a short and sweet statement, she...
  • McCain vs. the Tea Party

    07/27/2011 11:53:56 AM PDT · by Windy City Conservative · 209 replies
    Mr. McCain mocked Tea Party-allied Republicans in the House for believing — wrongly, he said — that President Obama and Democrats will get the blame for a default if Republicans refuse to increase the nation’s debt ceiling. By that flawed logic, “Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced budget amendment and reform entitlements and the Tea Party Hobbits could return to Middle Earth,” he said, quoting a Wall Street Journal editorial. “This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into G.O.P. nominees,” he jeered, referring to two losing Tea Party...

    Politco ^ | 6/2/11 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN
    Former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell says the Federal Elections Commission has dropped a campaign finance complaint filed against last year her by the state’s Republican Party. Writing on Twitter early Thursday afternoon, the tea party-backed Republican announced “Breaking News! FEC dismissed the DE GOP Ex-Chair’s complaint against me.” O’Donnell’s Christine PAC did not immediately respond to POLITICO’s request for comment. The complaint against O’Donnell alleged that she and the Tea Party Express had violated campaign finance rules barring coordination between PACs and candidates.

    Good grief! Now even folks like Rosie O'Donnell, who cannot simply have the kindness to keep her mouth closed for a change brings up this discredited idea called global warming. Just like Al Gore, Ms. O'Donnell is playing the "blame game". Oh for goodness sakes, Ms. O'Donnell, as horrible as these tornadoes have been, this has been part of the phenomenon called "La Nina". Plus this is also tornado alley we are dealing with, though the number of these very horrible tornadoes have been great. Give the people in these hard-hit areas CREDIT that they are working to put their...

    This is why you don’t debate with talking points with a person of Condi Rice’s intellect. Some have called this a spanking. I call it a a lesson in bad interviewing. If this were one of Condi’s classes, Lawrence O’Donnell would be clapping erasers after class. IF you watch nothing else today, please watch this, and listen, and enjoy. Allahpundit at Hot Air gives O’Donnell props just for having Rice on. But I don’t think if you call yourself a journalist, you pat yourself on the back just because you take on an opponent face-to-face.
