    Actress-comedian Kathy Griffin has a message for Donald Trump... One of the scariest-looking, dumbest, most slavishly pandering women on the planet (Earth) made some lying, ugly, sensationalist remarks about Donald Trump: “Actress-comedian Kathy Griffin has a message for Donald Trump in a new mock campaign ad: ‘F*ck off.’” Beautiful, right? Credible, right? And so worthwhile. The fact seems to be that this week—and probably well into the future—there is so much bullsh|t, crapp, lies, and insanity inundating the airwaves and websites of the world that they rival the prevalence of UFOs, ghosts, and time travelers on YouTube.

    Jammie Wearing Fools ^ | October 17, 2016
    Gee, a network news outlet conspiring to destroy a GOP candidate? Imagine that. NBC execs are rumored to have leaked the despicable Donald Trump “grab ’em by the p - - - y” tape to the Washington Post in a bid to influence the presidential race, sources tell Page Six. But NBC News is also holding back a potentially damaging tape of Hillary Clinton. Bill Clinton’s rape accuser, Juanita Broaddrick, claimed during a 1999 “Dateline” interview that Bill allegedly forcibly had sex with her while he was governor of Arkansas. Broaddrick then described how she was at an event weeks after the alleged rape,...

    It’s 3:00 in the afternoon, and Shepard Smith is in the chair. Fox News viewers are about to be in for an hour of broadcasting that is at once deeply familiar ― Shep has been on the network’s air since it went live 20 years ago ― and also just as strange. Shep, 52, is not what you’re used to if you go to Fox News for its brand of hard-edged, Republican rabble-rousing or affirmations that your conservative world view is infallibly correct. Today on “Shepard Smith Reporting” will be no different.

    I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, so thought I'd remind one and all. At the second Trump-Clinton debate, Anderson Cooper was a moderator. Trump missed a golden opportunity to really take one to the media. The liberal media is having a ball with Trump's use of the "P" word. But Anderson Cooper had his "P" moment too on live television. I would have loved to see Anderson's face and the media reaction had Trump reminded the national audience that in 2013 during the New Year's Eve countdown in Times Square on CNN, Kathy Griffin ( not Kathy Lee Griffin )...

    In a post-debate campaign rally GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump continued his charges of media bias by referencing the three-on-one (two moderators and Hillary Clinton vs. Trump) format of the Sunday night face-off. The crowd began chanting “CNN sucks,” much to the dismay of a few CNN “talking heads,” including Chris Cuomo, Alisyn Camerota, Brian Stelter, and Bill Carter. Cuomo characterized the crowd response as “dangerous and unprecedented. We haven’t treated Trump any differently than any other Republican nominee. All of them—Romney, McCain, Bush—took it in stride without complaining. That Trump would make an issue out of it shows his...

She's questioning the allegations made by several women that Trump made inappropriate sexual advances towards them - saying they only want their five minutes of fame. Bax said she doesn't condone comments he made in a reality show bus, which Trump has described as locker room talk. She told NZME "I'm sorry, but he's a man." She's also questioned why people think a guy trying to get a date is more important than national security - referring to Hillary Clinton's email scandal. "What about the 300 emails that...

Heather Mac Donald Democrats and their media allies, joined by many Republicans, are calling on Donald Trump to withdraw from the presidential race after a newly released, decade-old tape of a frat-house-level conversation between Trump and television host Billy Bush in 2005, in which Trump boasted of his heavy-handed pursuit of females. Trump describes trying unsuccessfully to seduce a married woman by taking her furniture shopping, speaking in the crudest terms. He brags that because he was a star he could...

    Some of the rats might want to consider returning to the ship. Donald Trump came through pretty well tonight, mainly because the focus was on the issues. As long as issues are being discussed, Trump wins. The moderators came out of the box with questions about Trump’s 2005 video, which many people expected to be the centerpiece of tonight’s debate. The effort flopped, I thought. Bill and Hillary Clinton took appropriate shots. After ten or fifteen minutes the conversation moved on to the issues. Thereafter, the moderators tried to help Hillary, and Trump appropriately complained a couple of times. But...

Toward the end of the interview, Fallon asked the Republican presidential nominee if he could mess up his famous head of hair on live TV, leading to raucous applause and the sort of bite-sized video that both the creators and consumers of internet media eat up. Before the rub, Fallon did sneak in a few subtle quips, like asking Trump if he knew what a coin...

Despite Constitutional strictures created to insure the contrary, the United States federal government has followed pretty much the same template, albeit on a bureaucratic, rather than monarchical, level. Case in point, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which is showing once more that it is...

    First they come after you, then they target your family and business relationships It is no secret that the mainstream media has decided that the threat presented by a possible Donald Trump presidency is so grave that it has suspended even the illusion of objectivity. Writing in The New York Times, media columnist Jim Rutenberg granted permission to his fellow journalists “to throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer, and approach it in a way you’ve never approached anything in your career.” The Observer and others have...

    New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters slammed radio talk show host Sean Hannity’s “unethical behavior” regarding how he is covering the current presidential candidates. “Every profession has its norms and boundaries for assessing the way its members should handle their trade,” Peters proclaimed. “Journalists have an ethical obligation to live up to these norms and respect these boundaries. It has been agreed by the majority within our profession that it is our journalistic duty to do whatever we can to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president. Hannity has flouted this agreement by urging voters to do the exact opposite of...

    A Chinese-American intern working for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has written a first-person account of his attempt to cover the aftermath of the Sylville Smith shooting. Aaron Mak says he was attacked by a group of people who chased and beat him because he wasn’t black. He was then rescued by other people in the crowd who pointed out that he was Chinese, not white. From Politico Magazine: It had all started earlier that day, around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 13, when Milwaukee police officers pulled over two black men in the city’s predominantly African-American Sherman Park neighborhood. The...

    HBO's hit series Game of Thrones might contain some real-life lessons about family, but at the end of the day it’s still a fantasy show – for most of us. However, the show apparently is startlingly realistic for at least one artist out there. Namely, rapper Snoop Dogg, who seems to believe that the dragon-infested world of GoT is real ... or at least was real. When a reporter for the New York Post asked him about being a fan of the series, Snoop replied: “I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based...

    Well, is this just playful trolling, or an omen not being taken seriously on the Left? Michael Rosenblum, the founder of the left-leaning Current TV, which was sold off to Al-Jazeera, had quite the declaration on The Huffington Post: Donald Trump is going to be elected president of the United States. Granted, he didn’t necessarily say polls be damned, though he might as well since Rosenblum said that this race was lost eons ago when Swamp People, Pawn Stars, and the endless World War II programming came on the History Channel. He says the same for the programming on The...

    When it comes to common sense, it might be safe to say that CNN political commentator Sally Kohn missed a memo or two. Now some people are gathering signatures for a petition telling Kohn to put her life where her agenda is. There's a petition encouraging Kohn to travel to a place that enforces Sharia law. This petition came after Kohn tweeted at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying progressive Muslims believe in Sharia:

    Monday morning an independent reporter named Tim Pool announced he would no longer cover events in Milwaukee after witnessing white reporters being harassed and seeing a white man shot in the neck. Pool posted a video explaining his decision on You Tube. “Upon arriving here one of the first things we hear is the crowd getting angry and saying ‘what are these white people doing here?'” Pool said. Pool says he took it as a sign locals were angry but didn’t assume that meant it was unsafe for him to continue to cover events. “Things started to get really tense...
