    Former House Speaker Paul Ryan, who currently sits on the board of Fox Corp., is reportedly urging Fox News to “decisively break” with President Donald Trump, according to a Thursday Vanity Fair report documenting the network’s “management bedlam.” Vanity Fair’s Gabe Sherman, citing four sources, reported that Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch, who has long tried to move Fox News to the center, “is already thinking about how to position the network for a post-Trump future.” Ryan, the longtime Trump antagonist, has reportedly been suggesting to Murdoch that “Fox should decisively break with the president” as Murdoch holds “strategy conversations...
  • Fox News’s on air war cools off – for now: It looks like Shepard Smith may be the loser

    The incendiary on air war that broke out earlier this week, pitting several of the most prominent Fox News channel personalities against each other, has cooled off for the moment. The sudden flare-up of simmering grudges between Fox News’s opinion and news sides that finally boiled over into public view involved opinion host Tucker Carlson, news host Shepard Smith, and the channel’s senior legal analyst Andrew Napolitano. The war of harsh words that went back and forth on Carlson’s and Smith’s programs Tuesday and Wednesday, which also involved Carlson’s guest, Republican attorney Joseph diGenova, was unprecedented and was immediately seized...

    “Republican politics are returning America to a past where only the wealthy have access to safe, legal abortion,” bemoaned lefty rag Vanity Fair in an article on Wednesday highlighting the pricey abortion concierge services available to the rich. Author Caitlin Moscatello touted VIP abortions at private clinics and MedSpas that have ritzy waiting rooms with glass chandeliers for those who want “care that’s quick, private, and exclusive.” Often for celebrities, public figures, and the wealthy or their partners, these abortion spas offer a la carte menu upgrade options for purchase, with one “Ultimate VIP” abortion package costing $10,000 for benefits...

    Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman has been following the Jeffrey Epstein case very closely and he reports that as early as the next few days, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will release approximately 2,000 pages of documents. According to the court’s three-judge panel, the documents will implicate “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.” Attorney David Boies, who represents Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, told Sherman the documents were filed during a civil defamation lawsuit brought by Giuffre, a former Mar-a-Lago locker-room attendant, against Epstein’s former girlfriend...

    President Donald Trump plotted his takedown of accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s elite inner circle during the 2016 election, convening a meeting with then-National Enquirer owner David Pecker prior to Trump’s comment at CPAC 2015 about how Bill Clinton has a Jeffrey Epstein problem. Vanity Fair reports: “Trump had been following the story closely. In the week or so leading up to his CPAC speech, David Pecker, who owned the Enquirer until it was sold in ruin earlier this year, visited Trump on the 26th floor of Trump Tower, bringing along an issue with a Prince Andrew and Epstein-related cover,...
  • Media Fawn Over Billionaires’ ‘Conscience-Stricken’ Call for Wealth Tax

    When liberal donor George Soros and several other liberal billionaires called for a wealth tax, the media swooned. Soros, Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, heiress Abigail Disney and 15 others wrote an open letter calling on presidential candidates to adopt a wealth tax on the top 1/10 of 1 percent. Vanity Fair was thrilled on June 24, publishing a supportive, hyperbolic account of the “zillionaires’” letter declaring: “Conscience-Stricken Billionaires Beg 2020 Candidates: Take Our Money.” Nevermind criticism that a wealth tax is unconstitutional, the reaction from Vanity Fair, The New York Times and CNN stories avoided tough questions and criticism.

    MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" appears desperate to get back in the good graces of The New York Times, constantly touting its headlines and praising its reporters on the heels of her far-left show being shunned by the paper. Maddow -- and occasional fill-in hosts -- have mentioned the New York Times at least a whopping 41 times on her show since May 30, when Vanity Fair reported that the paper wanted its reporters to stay far away from far-left and far-right programs. That included Maddow's, because it was too liberal, even for the paper that is often considered left-leaning...

    MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" has been hit with a serious one-two punch. One day after finishing May with its worst ratings since Donald Trump took office, the lefty pundit's eponymous program faced a Vanity Fair bombshell report that the New York Times didn’t want its reporters appearing on Maddow's show, not because her ratings were down, but because she was too far left, even for them. The New York Times had reportedly blocked its reporters from appearing on “Maddow” because the program is too partisan, with one insider from the Grey Lady's newsroom agreeing, telling Fox News “it rubs...

    Full title: New York Times bans reporters from CNN's Don Lemon, MSNBC's Maddow shows for being 'too partisan:' reportThe New York Times is cracking down on its own reporters, stopping them from appearing on certain primetime cable news shows seen as being "too partisan," according to a new report. Vanity Fair published the explosive report, which alleged MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell, as well as CNN anchor Don Lemon, made the newspaper's no-go list. The magazine began its report by alleging the Times' financial editor David Enrich had initially accepted an invitation to appear on "The Rachel Maddow Show"...
  • Hollywood writers are cranking out scripts portraying conservatives as monsters

    05/28/2019 11:45:49 AM PDT · by rktman · 50 replies ^ | 5/28/2019 | John Sexton
    You probably assumed this was happening. There are a host of would-be screenwriters in Hollywood seeking to dramatize people connected to the Trump administration or to the conservative media they blame for electing Trump. Naturally, everyone on the right is assumed to be a monster in Hollywood but that creates a problem. Because as much as Hollywood is a liberal town that gives loads of cash to Democrats and their causes, it’s also a business town that knows its business. In this case, it knows that no one wants to sit through a preachy film in which everyone is a...

    Hollywood hates Trump, Republicans even more than we thought, according to Vanity Fair's insider account. If you think the news mediaÂ’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is out of control, look at whatÂ’s happening in Hollywood. Rob Reiner âś” @robreiner There is no question. Donald Trump has committed, and continues to commit, more impeachable offenses than any President in US history. Whatever you want to call the process going forward, witnesses need to testify on TV so America can see the depth of this manÂ’s criminally. NOW! ItÂ’s even worse than that, according to Vanity Fair. The far-left magazine serves up a...

    Gabriel Sherman reports in Vanity Fair that internal divisions are arising in Fox News’ coverage of U.S. President Donald Trump Gabriel Sherman reported in Vanity Fair Tuesday that internal divisions are arising in Fox News’ coverage of U.S. President Donald Trump. Sherman’s report came the day before 21st Century Fox sold off large assets to Disney and began trading under a new name — Fox Corp. "Donald Trump's alliance with Fox News has been one of the few constants throughout his shambolic presidency," Sherman wrote. "But in recent days, that bond has shown signs of fraying.

    A new excerpt from former White House communications staffer Cliff Sims' new memoir emerged in Vanity Fair, and this one focused on a very special member of President Trump's Team of Vipers: Kellyanne Conway. Sims doesn't appear to be a fan: As I watched Kellyanne in operation over our time in the White House, my view of her sharpened. It became hard to look long at her without getting the sense that she was a cartoon villain brought to life. Her agenda — which was her survival over all others, including the president — became more and more transparent. [Cliff...

    “It’s enough to make you want to puke.” Only Fox News can answer the question why their Fox News Insider, Ben Shapiro is featured in the stomach-churning Vanity Fair picture portfolio headlined: ‘“We Did Not Come To Play”: Politics’ New Power Players are ready for a fight.”’ Shapiro, gushingly described by the magazine as the conservative “It boy”, is the only one in Vanity Fair’s photo lineup not (yet) elected to public office.

    Not only did Northam win the Virginia race, he won by 9 points, a polling error more substantial than anything we saw in 2016. Gillespie, it turns out, actually won more votes than any previous statewide Republican candidate; he had enthusiasm at his back. It’s just that Democrats had more—and they blew the doors off on Election Day. The whole spectacle was yet another blow to polling and to punditry, two industries sullied by Trump’s victory in 2016.

    High time to prick the balloon and send golden showers raining down on all dirt bags who write dirty dossiers for filthy lucre. Ex-British Intelligence officer Christopher Steele has come slithering back out of his hide-y-hole to accept his No. 38 place on Vanity Fair magazine’s list of the “100 most influential people in the media, politics, entertainment and finance, according to Sky News. In other words the salacious-loving Vanity Fair is awarding Steele, the defamed author of the debunked dossier about Donald Trump’s ties with Russia via the ‘Golden Shower’ trash story, high praise for what should rightfully be...

    The bishop of Chioggia has criticized Catholic attacks on Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for his efforts to curb illegal immigration, noting that people’s frustration with Italy’s immigration situation “is not irrational.” Addressing a recent cover story in Famiglia Cristiana, Italy’s largest Catholic publication, which compared Mr. Salvini with the devil, Bishop Adriano Tessarollo said he thinks it is “stupid” to identify the magazine with all Catholic priests. “Let’s stop this collectivizing mentality,” the bishop said in an interview with Corriere del Veneto. “Broad categorical judgements are the most malevolent and offensive thing there is.” In an online interview with Vanity...
