    NEW YORK, NY—A gleeful Joy Behar reported to the audience of The View the startling revelation that Adolf Hitler never voted for Trump, causing the crowd to cheer wildly. "This just in: it seems that Adolf Hitler never voted for Donald Trump!" Behar cried in ecstasy, causing the crowd to begin screaming in rapturous joy. "Shove that in your pipe and smoke it, bad orange man! Ha! You can't even get an evil Nazi dictator to fall for your shenanigans."

    No Whoopi. No Meghan. Still a whole lotta drama. With Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain off for Friday’s installment of “The View,” Joy Behar assumed the role of gabfest ringleader. The episode began innocuously enough with the gals cheerfully yakking about their Halloween costumes from the previous day. And then the mood quickly turned doom-and-gloom. Less than five minutes into the show, Behar dropped a bombshell. Scheduled to appear on the Nov. 7 episode — the 5,000th of the series, no less — will be none other than Donald Trump Jr. and his current squeeze, former Fox News pundit Kimberly...

    SOUTHINGTON, CT — In alphabetical order, a majority of Democratic and one unaffiliated candidates for governor endorsed the idea of installing electronic tolls on Connecticut’s highways and received applause for it. The nine candidates participated in a forum Friday sponsored by the Connecticut Construction Industries Association. The same group sponsored a similar forum in December for the Republican gubernatorial candidates as well. None of the candidates who are still in the “exploratory” phase of their campaigns for governor were invited to either forum — only the declared candidates. The problem: Connecticut’s special transportation fund will start running a deficit in...
  • Dwayne Johnson Refuses to Endorse Politicians, Here’s Why

    Dwayne Johnson just might be one of the most popular celebrities in America, and it isn’t just because of his acting. In a recent GQ story titled, “Dwayne Johnson for President”, writer Caity Weaver showed the side of Johnson that has earned him the widely-accepted title of “Nicest Guy in America.” Johnson has learned something that most of Hollywood would do well to copy: the value of listening before talking in politics. Unlike perennial left-leaning superstar singers Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, he isn’t standing on stage, leading rallies for politicians.  He also isn’t channeling vulgar overtures to convince Americans to...
  • Trump's Turbulent Transition

    06/23/2016 6:30:12 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | June 23, 2016 | Jackie Gingrich Cushman
    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has had a bad week in the media, but potentially a good week for the future. The transition from a free-flowing primary campaign to a more structured, bigger general election campaign is underway. The transition is a bit more turbulent than might be comfortable for those along for the ride. After announcing Cory Lewandowski's departure on Monday, the Trump campaign released a list of new hires on Tuesday, with promises of more to come. But in the end, campaigns are not about staffs, spouses or (adult) children, they are a reflection of the candidate....

    Repeatedly throughout the debate, the audience cheered as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his protegéSen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) consistently and repeatedly made the case to grant amnesty to illegal aliens, while the audience oddly booed both Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as they made eloquent cases against amnesty. “I don’t think it’s representative of the people of South Carolina,” Lewandowski added. “Those who don’t have the resources to give large sums of money to the RNC didn’t get a ticket here tonight and that’s a shame on the RNC.” Trump’s campaign was hardly the only one upset with...

    An audience member who attended CNN’s Monday night town hall for Democratic presidential candidates appeared to unintentionally admit that CNN wrote questions beforehand for audience members to ask the candidates. The televised forum was hosted by Drake University and the Iowa Democratic Party and took place one week before Iowa voters head to the caucuses as the first state to help determine the primary. It was a chance for potential voters to ask the Democratic candidates questions to help determine their choice this Monday. One audience member named Brett Rosenberg began to ask a question to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton...

    Pew Research came out with its latest seven-year study of religious trends in America. The data appears to show Christianity in decline, and given its numerous sensational headlines the liberal media couldn’t be happier with the results. For once, this Jesus Freak actually agrees with them. The Pew Research numbers showing Christianity in decline is good news—both for America and Christianity. Allow me to explain. We have become so obsessed with numbers in our culture – dollars, attendance, followers, likes, polls, etc. – that we have confused audience with influence. For example, pop stars Katy Perry and Justin Bieber currently...

    Make no mistake, Fox News is still the ratings king. But the recent May numbers show that while all the cable channels had a decline in ratings (which is normal for May), Fox News was far from spared, with some of its lowest ratings in 12 years. While Fox dominates with the top 14 shows in overall viewers, the total day average for Fox News in the key advertising demographic of the 25- to 54-year-old category was 177,000 viewers, only the second time Fox has gone below a 200,000 average since 2001. Another key factor coming from May ratings is...

    In the wake of uproar following conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh’s characterization of 30-year-old contraception activist and Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke last month as a “slut,” Limbaugh has seen advertisers flee and entire campaigns waged to get him off the air. But the big question remains: Just how have Limbaugh’s ratings been affected? There has been no measure of his listenership since the Fluke flap. But nonpartisan radio expert Michael Harrison told The Daily Caller that Limbaugh’s numbers likely are going no where but up — despite the anti-Limbaugh push. Harrison is founder and publisher of Talkers magazine, the...

    The left-leaning blog ThinkProgress isn’t happy with Sen. Chuck Schumer’s statement that Palestinians and Arabs “don’t believe there should be an Israel.” Here’s the text of the statement Schumer made at a Jewish function this past Sunday: The reason there is no peace in the Middle East is very simple. It’s because the majority of Palestinians and the majority of Arabs don’t believe there should be an Israel. It’s that simple. Anyone who tries to figure out a way to solve this conflict without realizing that truth will never get anywhere. ThinkProgress cites various polls that seem to contradict Schumer’s...

    Pope Benedict XVI / Photo Credit Mazur Vatican City, May 4, 2011 / 11:16 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Benedict XVI has revealed the theme for his next series of weekly Wednesday audiences.  “I want to start a new series of catechesis on a subject that is very dear to us all: the topic of prayer,” he told pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square May 6. Over the past two years Pope Benedict has been exploring the lives of the saints. That series of talks concluded last month. Hence the announcement of a new topic based on the request of the...
  • Jon Stewart Rally Draws Modest TV Audience

    11/01/2010 5:24:35 PM PDT · by Justaham · 18 replies
    Comedy Central's coverage of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's weekend rally drew a modest TV audience. According to the network, 2 million viewers tuned in between noon and 3 p.m. on Saturday to watch the hosts and musical guests entertain about 200,000 fans on the Washington mall. Many more doubtless saw the show online, or caught coverage on the cable networks newtorks. This time period rarely draws big numbers for non-sports networks (the Rally audience was more than three times what the Comedy Central slot averages). Still, the rally received enormous media hype and 2 million is less than your...

    What is it with the League of Woman’s Voters and the Pledge of Allegiance? For the second time in less than a week a congressional debate began with a request for the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and for the second time in a week the League of Woman’s Voters moderator said no, and for the second time in a week the audience got up and said it anyway. One would think that with all of the bad publicity after last week’s incident, the League would have “gotten it.” But Tuesday night the League of Woman Voters proved that...

    Is it too late to start a Bidenism of the Day? Alas, Andrew Malcolm usually has that beat well covered, but in this case, the Hill reports on the just-reconfirmed running mate for Barack Obama’s election helping to turn Wisconsin, er, red. After getting a tepid reaction from his attempt to demagogue on globalization and jobs, Joe Biden blamed his audience for failing to appreciate his genius: “We want to reward people who manufacture things in the United States, in Wisconsin, not to take them overseas to China and to other countries!” he said to a silent room at the...

    Less than two years into his presidency and just 6 years after his first appearance on the national stage, President Barack Obama has obviously lost his rock-star status. Gone are the days of tens of thousands of cheering fans in front of a stage adorned with regal Greek columns. In their place, the recreation center at Cuyahoga Community College near Cleveland, Ohio where students had to be recruited at the last minute to fill empty seats in the audience.

    President Barack Obama is getting a little personal about the sluggish economy, telling a Cleveland audience about his own family's struggles and hardships. Obama noted Wednesday that his grandfather served in World War II while his grandmother toiled in factories back home. He was raised by a single mother who put herself through school and got up before sunrise to help him with schoolwork. And, the president says, first lady Michelle Obama's father kept working in spite of suffering from multiple sclerosis that forced him to walk with crutches.
