    Monday on CNN's "The Lead," host Jake Tapper said the man who beheaded his co worker in Oklahoma on Thursday, Alton Nolen, was "clearly an Islamic extremist." Tapper said, "Some call this a case of workplace violence. The suspect's devolution into the world of radical Islam is hard to ignore."

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The conservative co-host suggested she didn't enjoy working for Palin during a segment about the former VP's bar brawl scandal.“The View” co-host Nicolle Wallace explained on Monday how she was struck with fear after she heard Sarah Palin was speaking out for the first time since her family was allegedly involved in a bar brawl. “I worked for Sarah Palin,” Wallace said. “I have the political staffer version of PTSD, so whenever I hear that she's breaking her silence, my heart stops.” Whoopi Goldberg led off the “Hot Topic” segment by referring to Palin as a “crazy politician,” and the...
  • Hillary’s $100 Million Hollywood Makeover (CBS's "Madam Secretary")

    Front Page Mag ^ | September 22, 2014 | Daniel Greenfield
    The First Secretary of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia described the reforms which resulted in the Prague Spring as “socialism with a human face.” The New York Times calls Madam Secretary, CBS’s extremely expensive prime time contribution to the Hillary campaign, “Hillary with a human face.” A network series can cost between $3 and $4 million an episode. Assuming that Madam Secretary runs even one season, instead of being canceled ignominiously like Commander in Chief, the 2005 attempt at giving Hillary a human face, it will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million. That’s double the $46 million that...

    For a long time before I became a reporter, I never paid attention to bylines — the announcement of who wrote a given article. That all changed for me one day when I was sitting at Jimmy T’s Diner in Washington, D.C., reading a hate-filled “fashion” column that was nothing more than the projection of angry liberal political views. It was so awful that I wanted to know who wrote it. The author, Robin Givhan, of course went on to win a Pulitzer. I’m part of a profession that rewards liberal political views above most all else. Along similar...

    There are plenty of concerning things about the Browns’ lives on Sister Wives that the average audience member wouldn’t be accustomed to — for example, just how do they afford four McMansions in Nevada? Perhaps the most unfamiliar thing about the Browns’ unusual lifestyle choice, however, is just how many children they have. Like the Duggars before them, the Browns are working in the high teens of offspring (17, to be exact), but unlike the Duggars, the Brown children have… mother-aunts? And if you’re at all curious about their parents’ polygamist lifestyle, then certainly you’ve wondered: Will their 17...

    It seems every year Americans have more TV channel options than the year prior, but one number has remained consistent — 17. That’s the average number of channels viewers actually tune in to. In 2013, the average TV home received 189 channels, up from 129 in 2008, according to a new report from Nielsen. Back in 2008 Americans tuned in to an average of 17.3 channels, as opposed to this year’s 17.5 figure. Maybe that’s all we channel-surfers can handle. “This data is significant in that it substantiates the notion that more content does not necessarily equate to more channel...
