  • Networks Give Roughly 15 Times More Coverage to Women’s March Than March for Life

    Despite what was a much delayed but important avalanche of headlines about the group’s anti-Semitism, the 2019 Women’s March took place Saturday and it still received nearly 15 times the broadcast network newscast coverage of the 47th annual March for Life that was held Friday.  Between Wednesday morning and Saturday evening, the Women’s March fetched 14 minutes and 26 seconds of coverage on the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening newscasts. This stood in stark contrast to just 58 seconds for the March for Life. The Women’s March still went on despite their controversies with some satellite marches divorcing...

    Friday night, the Special Counsel’s office released an extremely rare statement that took a buzz saw to BuzzFeed News’s Thursday night bombshell that alleged President Trump directed former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about possible construction of a Trump Tower in Moscow. In the statement, a Mueller spokesman called it “not accurate.” Despite the fact that the BuzzFeed News story was not confirmed by — well — any news outlet from when it was first published to the statement from Mueller’s team, the broadcast networks devoted 27 minutes and 33 second on their Friday morning and...

    On Sunday’s Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd eagerly touted the latest Gallup poll showing 51% of Democrats and 26% of Americans overall identifying themselves as “liberal.” He excitedly told viewers that “Democrats are embracing the label” and that it was “no longer a dirty word” in politics. “Not long ago, Republicans loved calling Democrats liberal. They didn’t mean it as a compliment. And for a while, it was effective. Today, Democrats are embracing the label,” Todd proclaimed as he teased the upcoming segment. Minutes later, during the show’s Data Download segment, the NBC moderator hyped the new Gallup survey...

    According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration. “We now have a president of the United States who has essentially been implicated in a felony by his own Justice Department,” boasted ABC anchor Dan Harris to chief global...

    Eager to attack a potential new Trump administration policy dealing with sexual assault on college campuses, on Thursday, NBC’s Today show actually ignored its own reporting on the litany of problems with existing Obama-era policy. Instead, the story feared that Trump’s Department of Education was getting ready to silence sexual assault victims. “Also this morning, could the rules on how universities handle sexual assault and harassment cases be about to change and give more rights to the accused?,” warned co-host Savannah Guthrie while introducing the segment. Correspondent Kate Snow fretted: “Proposed rules by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, obtained by The...

    In an attempt to excuse Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf’s outrageous decision to help criminal aliens evade federal authorities, CBS and NBC portrayed the Democrat’s unlawful action as the result of a “feud” with the Trump administration over immigration policy. At least those two networks covered the story, unlike ABC, which has failed to discover the controversy.   “Much more ahead on tonight’s CBS Evening News, including the mayor who defied a federal agency,” anchor Jeff Glor teased Wednesday night. Introducing the report minutes later, he declared: “The battle over sanctuary cities has exploded into a public feud between the...

    On Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today show and ABC’s Good Morning America recited identical liberal talking points as both broadcasts warned viewers that the U.S. was on the verge of looking like world’s worst “authoritarian regimes” if the Pentagon followed through on President Trump’s desire to hold a military parade in the nation’s capital. “Some unusual marching orders from President Trump to the Pentagon. He wants a massive parade to highlight the country’s military strength,” fretted Today co-host Hoda Kotb. “But as NBC’s Hans Nichols explains, that request is not sitting well with some lawmakers,” she added.

    The atmosphere is so bad around Megyn Kelly at “Today” that producers of the 7-to-9 a.m. slot, hosted by Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, are openly sniping at her. Kelly, who takes over “Today” at 9 a.m., had “congratulated” Kotb, “Mean Girls”-style, when the latter landed Matt Lauer’s job. On Jan. 2, Kelly said to Kotb, live on air, “We talked recently about how, 10 years ago, your life was very different. You were going through a dark period.”

    Hoda Kotb, the longtime co-host of the fourth hour of the NBC morning franchise “Today,” will replace Matt Lauer as co-anchor of the program’s opening hours, the network said on Tuesday. Savannah Guthrie, the show’s other anchor, announced the news of Ms. Kotb’s appointment during Tuesday’s broadcast... This is the first time that two women will be the main hosts of “Today,” which first went on the air in 1952 and is the network’s most profitable franchise. The show has an overwhelmingly female audience, and the feel-good nature of much of its content and the convivial byplay between its personalities...

    The anti-government protests targeting government and religious leaders sweeping across Iran took a bloody turn Sunday as overnight reports surfaces of two protestors being killed at the hands of the corrupt government. Disgustingly, the deaths didn’t trigger much air on the three major American networks. ABC’s Good Morning America had a blackout of the deaths and protests all together while NBC only found 24 seconds for them. CBS finally discovered the protests, as they continued into their fourth day, dedicating a meager 16 seconds. Instead of allowing serious time for the brutal murders of Iranian civilians and the protests, whose...

    After giving President Obama’s silence on Kate Steinle a pass in 2015, the networks are suddenly interested in what the current President has to say about her murderer’s recently released verdict, two years later. As a reminder, in July of 2015, President Obama ignored the shocking death of the 32-year-old Steinle, who was shot and killed by a five-time-deported illegal immigrant and felon, while she was walking with her father in a popular tourist area of San Francisco. But after the highly politicized deaths of black men killed by police officers, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray, Obama spoke out...

    Matt Lauer’s abrupt firing from NBC News after accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior has left the network with a huge hole to fill. NBC made Lauer the face of morning television. He had been co-anchor of Today for 20 years and was being paid an annual salary in the $20 million range, according to The Wall Street Journal. He was fired on Wednesday after a staffer filed a complaint alleging he engaged in misconduct during NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. NBC News Chairman Andy Lack wrote a memo to the staff, saying the allegations made...

    Geraldo Rivera is apologizing for calling the news business “flirty” in the wake of “Today” show host Matt Lauer’s firing by NBC over sexual misconduct allegations. The Fox News reporter tweeted Wednesday that the sexual harassment issue is “so red hot right now there is no room for any thought or opinion but hang em high.” He added: “If News wasn’t (formerly) a flirty biz then how do we explain so many newsroom courtships that have led to happy marriages?” Rivera also suggested there was a “slight chance” that those making allegations were motivated by big money settlements.

Insiders at the show told DailyMail.com that if she had a public comment to make she should have focused on the accuser and the Today team who are devastated by by the allegation surrounding Lauer and his firing, which came late Tuesday night.

    The face of ‘Today’ is accused by at least one staffer of sexual misconduct, and several bombshell stories are expected to reveal more. In perhaps the most shocking media firing in years, NBC News Chairman Andy Lack on Wednesday fired the Today show’s Matt Lauer, the longtime star and mainstay of the news division’s most profitable franchise. In a statement read on the air at the top of the program by Lauer’s shaken co-host, Savannah Guthrie, Lack said the abrupt termination was prompted by a “detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer.”...

    Okay, so I read on FreeRepublic this AM that Matt Lauer has been terminated for sexual harassment. And out of all these firings and charges they are almost all leftists. Nearly everyone single one of them. Weinstein. Spacey. Etc. etc. There is a federal regulation that covers sexual harassment in the workplace. It applies to any company that has more than 15 employees. It is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Section initiates Title VII litigation in two ways. Pursuant to Section 707 of Title VII, the Attorney General has authority to bring suit against a...
