  • CNN President Jeff Zucker Faces What Might Be His Last Lap

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 23 October 2020 | Benjamin Mullin and Drew FitzGerald
    CNN President Jeff Zucker survived plenty of corporate intrigue since telecom giant AT&T swallowed up the cable network’s parent company two years ago. Now that is changing, leaving Mr. Zucker frustrated and his future at the cable news network in doubt. Mr. Zucker, who has overseen CNN for seven years, felt blindsided by a recent restructuring carried out by parent WarnerMedia, and has had friction with its chief executive, Jason Kilar, according to people familiar with the situation. The 55-year-old’s contract expires next year and he hasn’t committed to extending his deal in meetings with WarnerMedia brass and communications with...

    When Hayden Ludwig and a colleague showed up at the Civic Participation Action Fund’s (CPAF) Washington, D.C., office in 2019 seeking copies of the group’s most recent tax returns, they were greeted by an angry Stephen McConnell. McConnell, then-CPAF’s president, demanded to know who paid his inquisitors’ salaries. Ludwig identified himself as an investigative researcher for the Capital Research Center (CRC), and his colleague as an intern there. [snip] “They’re not used to being in the limelight,” Ludwig laconically told The Epoch Times on Oct. 22. Indeed, throughout its carefully planned five-year lifespan, CPAF flew under the radar even as...

  • Published 2 hours ago Pollster Frank Luntz: If Trump defies polls again 'my profession is done'

    Fox News ^ | 23 October 2020 | Caitlin McFall
    Republican pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News’ Bret Baier on Thursday night, that his "profession is done" if President Trump wins re-election come Nov. 3, and proves the national polls wrong yet again. “I hate to acknowledge it, because that's my industry — at least partially — but the public will have no faith. No confidence. Right now, the biggest issue is the trust deficit,” Luntz said in response to Baier asking how pollsters will fare if they are wrong in predicting the 2020 presidential election. “Pollsters did not do a good job in 2016. So, if Donald Trump surprises...

    There is no plausible reality in which Kanye West becomes the next president. And yet people disenfranchised with the electoral system say they’re voting for him anyway. “Do I think he's going to win? No. Do I think we need change? Yes. Am I voting for change? Am I voting for my interests? Yes,” 33-year-old Quentin Jones told BuzzFeed News. After officially announcing his candidacy in mid-July and reportedly spending nearly $12 million on his own campaign, West is only on the ballot in 11 states, making it mathematically impossible for him to earn enough votes to become the next...

  • Lease issue forces Trump rally to move to Waukesha, Milwaukee Mitchell Airport says

    MILWAUKEE — The Trump campaign initially planned to hold Saturday's rally at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport - but the airport denied the request. An airport spokesperson tells TMJ4 News that the airport's director notified an unidentified tenant that all special events that are "non-aeronautical in nature" are in violation of its lease with the airport. Such an event would also be in violation of the City of Milwaukee's ban on large public gatherings. "The concern for the Airport is the impact to airline flight operations, as the event originally planned for Saturday morning would require a ground stop, resulting in...

    MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) – With the final Presidential debate before Election Day on Thursday, South Carolina has already seen record numbers of absentee ballots already cast, especially in Horry County. A pandemic, a Presidential election and a toss-up U.S. Senate race between Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Democratic candidate Jamie Harrison are the recipe for shattering 2016’s early vote records in the Palmetto State. “We’re probably, right now, on pace easily to double that,” said Drew Kurlowski, who’s an assistant professor of political science at Coastal Carolina University. “We might see upwards of actually a million early absentee or...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., took the first steps Friday to advance Amy Coney Barrett for a Supreme Court confirmation vote despite delay tactics from Democrats, including forcing a rare closed-door session that's typically reserved for national security matters. Senate Republicans voted in favor of a procedural motion to enter executive session to begin debating Barrett's nomination -- teeing up a final vote on Barrett's nomination Monday. "Let's get on with it. Let's do our jobs," said McConnell, while hitting Democrats for efforts to undercut Barrett and previous GOP nominees. "We will give this nominee the vote she deserves...

    Tens of millions of people who have chosen not to vote in recent U.S. elections could be headed to the polls this November in a massive wave that would change the look and feel of the presidential contest, according to a newly published study of “chronic non-voters.” The sweeping survey of thousands of inactive voters and eligible but unregistered adults, commissioned last summer by the Miami-based John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, found that roughly half of those interviewed were “absolutely certain” they’ll vote in 2020. And given estimates that 100 million eligible adults skipped the last presidential election,...
