    This week marks Andrea Mitchell’s 40th anniversary at NBC News, and the network has been filled with tributes to her. But when it comes to gushing, it will be hard to top Willie Geist’s effort, which aired during Mitchell’s MSNBC show today: “You are one of a very small handful of icons in our business, about whom a young journalist thinks: I can’t even believe I work in the same news division where she works. It always has been a privilege, and that awe has never gone away.” The tribute ended with a still shot of Mitchell warmly holding hands...

    Plunging drilling costs have sparked an explosion of production out of the Permian Basin of West Texas. In fact, Texas is pumping so much oil that it will surpass OPEC members Iran and Iraq next year, HSBC predicted in a recent report. If it were a country, Texas would be the world’s No. 3 oil producer, behind only Russia and Saudi Arabia, the investment bank said. “It’s remarkable. The Permian is nothing less than a blessing for the global economy,” said Bob McNally, president of Rapidan Energy Group, a consulting firm… “The industry cracked the code on fracking,” said McNally....
  • Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Who Is America?’ Debut Pratfalls In Ratings For Showtime

    Oscar Wilde once quipped that “there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.” Having generated a lot of chatter recently, Sacha Baron Cohen and Showtime may take The Importance of Being Earnest author’s words as some cold comfort today. They may have to. Because, for all the hoopla around the debut of Cohen’s Who Is America? series, the 10 PM satire offering attracted a pretty meager viewership on July 15, at least on the small screen. Just 327,000 sets of eyeballs tuned in to the premium cabler on...

    Showtime and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen rebuffed former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's claim that she was "duped" into a prank interview for the British actor's new series. The network said in a statement on Monday that Baron Cohen conducted the interview for his new show "Who is America?" dressed as one of his new characters, Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., Ph.D. But contrary to Palin's claim that the character was intended to be a disabled vet, Showtime said that the show's premiere on Sunday proved that wasn't the case. "There has been widespread misinformation over the past week about...

    SNIP Palin appeared on ABC's “Good Morning America” on Friday to talk about the interview Baron Cohen staged for his new Showtime satirical series “Who is America?” The former governor of Alaska told host Robin Roberts that Baron Cohen showed her “propaganda” about sex changes and transgender people and claimed that Chelsea Clinton was the “recipient of a government-funded sex change.” “It got worse and worse and worse as the minutes went on in this bizarre, really embarrassing, humiliating interview,” Palin said. “It mocked middle class Americans, it mocked our values, it mocked the disabled.” Palin said she had had...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin slammed what appeared to be a response from British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, who’s on the defensive after apparently posing as a disabled military veteran for a prank interview. “Another list of unfunny lies, this time typewritten for all to see; a pathetic attempt to punk not just my daughter and me again, but now the public,” Palin wrote on Facebook Thursday. “Thank God people are wise to Hollywood’s BS & said, ‘Enough.’” Palin was responding to a tweet sent from the Twitter account of “Billy Wayne Ruddick,” the fictional character Cohan plays in his...

    Sarah Palin is calling on Sacha Baron Cohen to donate all the profits from his upcoming Showtime series to military veterans’ groups after saying she was duped into an interview with the comedian when he pretended to be a wounded warrior. The Daily Mail reports that the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said she unknowingly participated in an interview for what turned out to be Cohen’s just-announced satirical series, “Who is America?” “This ‘legit opportunity’ to honor American Vets and contribute to a ‘legit Showtime historical documentary’ was requested of me via a speakers bureau,” Palin said. Palin, 54, says...

    Senator McCain should express nothing but gratitude that Sarah Palin accepted his offer to be his running mate. In his new book, The Restless Wave, and in an upcoming HBO documentary, U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) expresses regret about choosing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate in the 2008 election. According to The New York Times, in the documentary, McCain refers to the Palin selection as “another mistake” he made in a long political career. In his new book, McCain reportedly claims that former Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, a Democrat, would have been a better...

    Although John McCain wrote that he regrets having selected Sarah Palin as his running mate she continues to speak highly of him: That strikes me as pretty classy, considering a great many of us voted for her, not John McCain, in ‘08. And unlike the phony bologna Leftists who spend a lot of time virtue-signaling that they’re better than you, Conservatives like Sarah Palin just act on those principles. And just what does the Left consider “going higher” anyway?It may not be what you consider “higher”Keep in mind that since they also assume themselves to be morally superior they...

    John McCain may have admitted that he regrets picking Sarah Palin as his running mate in the 2008 presidential election, but according to the former Alaska governor, “that’s not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years.” The one-time Republican vice-presidential candidate told The Daily Mail on Thursday that she feels a “perpetual gut punch” every time she hears reports about McCain’s regrets and that having to read the news every day is “not a real fun thing.” “I attribute a lot of what we’re hearing and reading regarding McCain’s statements to his ghostwriter or ghostwriters,” Palin said. “I...

    Sarah Palin was the headliner last night at a MAGA Coalition event held at the Trump International in Washington D.C. She had lots and lots to say! She was brought to the stage by social media sensations Diamond and Silk, "A true patriot. We call her sassy and classy." Palin thanked the duo, saying "You are my sisters", quipping that "I figure, if Kanye and Trump may be brothers" … leaving the comparison for the audience to decipher, then paid tribute to Kanye West’s independent thinking. "I did read recently that Senator McCain", Palin began to say, but was immediately...

    United States presidential candidate John McCain now retains a lead over Barack Obama in several polls conducted in the past few days. Both Zogby International and Rasmussen Reports have McCain with a slight, but not statistically significant lead. The most recent Gallup tracking poll has McCain with a statistical lead of 5.0 percent. The Day to Day Politics Poll Average also has a slight, but not statistically significantly lead of 0.4% for McCain. Obama had a 6.0 percent lead in the Day to Day Politics Poll Average after the Democratic National Convention, but now is trailing after the Republican National...

    Sarah Palin said Thursday that Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) admission that he regrets picking her as his running mate in his failed 2008 presidential bid is "like a perpetual gut-punch." The former Republican vice presidential nominee said the senator's recent remarks were "not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years, as he's apologized to me repeatedly for the people who ran his campaign," she told the Daily Mail before speaking at a pro-Trump PAC fundraiser. In his upcoming memoir, “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and other Appreciations,” the 81-year-old senator laments not selecting former...

    From the sound of it, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is currently on his deathbed in Arizona to meet with old friends, nurse grudges, and express regrets. [...] McCain’s public expression of regret against Palin comes off as ungracious, as well as further proof that he still does not understand why his own presidential campaign failed. Over the last decade, Palin has been unfailingly loyal to McCain. Despite the malicious leaks against her that came from his own campaign surrogates, despite unrelenting personal attacks from McCain’s own daughter Meghan, Palin has never spoken ill of the elder McCain. She has always and...

    The forthcoming final memoir from Senator John McCain, titled The Restless Wave, and a nearly two-hour-long HBO documentary on its way seem to be being used as an opportunity to settle some scores. Jonathan Martin of the New York Times has obtained copies of both books, and has spoken with the ailing senator at his ranch, where he seems to be spending his final days. This leaped out at me: While he continues to defend Ms. Palin’s performance, Mr. McCain uses the documentary and the book to unburden himself about not selecting Mr. Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-independent, as his running...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he regrets choosing former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) to be his running mate during the 2008 presidential campaign. The New York Times reported on Saturday that McCain, while still defending Palin’s performance, said in his upcoming book “The Restless Wave” that he wishes he had instead selected former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) His advisers reportedly had warned against choosing Lieberman, who was once a Democrat, stating that Lieberman’s support of abortion rights could divide Republicans. “It was sound advice that I could reason for myself,” he writes. “But my gut told me to ignore...

    “Why in the world we would be willing to sacrifice even one of our sons or daughters who will be sent over [to Syria]?” asked Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin during a Tuesday interview with SiriusXM host Rebecca Mansour for Breitbart News Tonight. “It really makes me nervous that there seems to be some enthusiasm for the U.S. to interject ourselves again in a foreign country’s battles when no one has articulated yet what our interest is there,” Palin said. “We should have learned our lesson with Iraq and Afghanistan. I look at it as the blood, the sweat, the...

Palin declared, “The reason that I did want to call was to thank Breitbart for covering so fully and so intelligently this whole Facebook stuff and to also explain it to people.” Palin also said, “I feel that with things like today, with Facebook, such a liberal group of people who are trying to control and regulate and make sure that we the people don’t get back in control of...
