  • CNN’s Jeff Zucker once feted Kamala Harris. Will that help or hurt in 2020?

    CNN’s president, a media titan at the helm of a global news organization intensely covering the 2020 presidential election, has a longstanding personal rule against supporting politicians. He’s broken it once ⁠— for Kamala Harris when she ran to become the first woman of color to hold the office of California attorney general a decade ago. “Kamala is not just important for the city of San Francisco, the state of California, but for the entire country,” Jeff Zucker, then president of NBC Universal, told guests at a breakfast at NBC’s Rockefeller Plaza office in August 2009, according to reporting by...
  • 30 Years Later, Rush Limbaugh Still Drives the Liberal Media Crazy

    08/04/2018 2:11:41 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 27 replies ^ | August 4, 2018 | Jeffrey Lord
    This past week Rush Limbaugh celebrated his 30th year on radio. There was a call from the President. Sean Hannity paid tribute on his TV show. And CNN’s Jim Acosta? Well, Jim just went on being Jim Acosta. Which is to say Jim has become the latest embodiment of just why Rush Limbaugh is celebrated, not to mention needed. Let’s take just one small Acosta moment to illustrate the point - a point that could be made endlessly with all manner of other journos well beyond CNN. I have mentioned this before right in this space. But the best account...

    Over at Conservative Review a while back, in a column titled “The Left’s Violent DNA,” I noted the following after the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise: Question: What do the Ku Klux Klan, the labor movement, Students for a Democratic Society, the Weathermen, Occupy Wall Street, and congressional shooter James T. Hodgkinson have in common? Answer: They all emerged from the murky depths of leftist politics. And all have a history of violence associated with their politics.” As if to prove the point the fascists of Antifa — stunning, I know, that real fascists would label themselves “Antifa” for PR...

    If you were curious about what Jeffrey Lord might do now that he’s no longer with CNN, well… we may have your answer. The pro-Trump commentator was fired from the network earlier this month after sending out a “Sieg Heil” tweet. According to The Daily Beast, Lord might be about to find a new home at Breitbart, under the newly reinstated leadership of Steve Bannon.

    New York Times ^ | 08/14/2017 | By MICHAEL M. GRYNBAUM
    Jeffrey Lord, the indefatigable defender of President Trump whose advocacy turned him into an unlikely political celebrity, was fired by CNN on Thursday after a convoluted Twitter exchange in which he evoked — mockingly, he said — a Nazi salute. Mr. Lord received the news by telephone while on his way to CNN’s Manhattan studio in a town car provided by the network, which ferried him from his home near Harrisburg, Pa. After Mr. Lord, 66, learned that his contract had been severed, the car turned around. “I didn’t have to walk; I thanked them for that,” he said in...
  • Jeff Lord Fired from CNN as a Nazi – For Mocking Nazis

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    CNN’s lone Trump Supporter has been fired from his role after accusing someone of using Nazi-like tactics and mocking them with a “Seig Heil.” Jeffery Lord got involved in an online argument with Angelo Carusone, president of the liberal watchdog site Media Matters, where he accused him of using Fascist tactics. But is this firing really a response to what any sane person can see is a “denouncement of Nazis”, or is it part of a larger plot to not only remove Conservative voices from the media, but also to make regular folk live in fear of expressing their views?...

  • The ‘Fevered Insanity’ of the Media’s Selective Outrage (Jeffrey Lord)

    07/16/2017 7:49:36 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 7 replies ^ | Jeffrey Lord
    As always, leave it to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to pithily assess the flood of media stories about Donald Trump Jr.’s 20-minute minute meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of 2016. Appearing on Fox’s My Story, hosted by Martha McCallum, Gingrich had a two word description for all the frenzied coverage: “fevered insanity.” To which can only be added another two words: “selective outrage.” The breathless reporting of this story revolves around the absolute certainty on the part of the media and angry Democrats who are still agog that Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump. There had to...
  • Anderson Pooper? CNN Anchor Scat-Slashes Paid Pro-Trump Contributor on Air

    This week, the Media Research Center posted a study of one CNN day showing that the network is obsessed with President Trump and the overwhelming majority of CNN’s experts opining on Trump are highly negative. CNN’s rare allowance of pro-Trump voices often come from commentators they pay to defend Trump. So why insult them when that’s what you pay them to do? On his primetime show AC360 Friday night, Anderson Cooper interrupted one of Jeffrey Lord's defenses of Trump -- saying he doesn't care what Trump tells the Russians -- by saying "if he took a dump on his desk, you...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    About the last accusation you’d expect to hear leveled at CNN is that it is too accommodating to Sean Hannity and Donald Trump. But that’s the charge that former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett has made. Appearing on Brian Stelter’s Reliable Sources on CNN today, Lovett first praised Stelter as a “bulwark,” noting “you go after Hannity on your show.” Lovett then turned the tables, claiming “but then you turn on CNN, and Hannity’s got a little beachhead on half the shows on this network.” Lovett’s beef was that CNN panels include Trump supporters he disparages.

  • J Lord to CNN: 'distinguish between good old Americans and the racists!'

    On CNN, with Clarissa Ward, Nov-22-2016 (around 3pm ET), Jeffrey Lord was repeatedly asked why Trump doesn't denounce the White Supremacists stronger. Jeffrey replied, "how many times does he have to repeat it?" When pressed on this again, Jeffrey asked "when did Obama denounced racists on the left?" He also asked why does the left link Trump with the racists? Then he put some clarity, "some of the alt-right are racists (not the majority) but we have to distinguish between good old Americans who put Trump to the presidency and the (real) racists.

    To these Establishmentarians the Trump performance was a call for the smelling salts. Trump attacked the Bushes. O...M...G!!!! What seems to go right over the heads of these fine folks is that there is more to this than just the battle between Ronald Reagan and the GOP Establishment all over again. To be sure, Trump isn't Reagan. As noted often enough, no two human souls are alike. But while the animosity on display towards Trump from the Bush camp and the larger GOP Establishment is exactly what was on display as Reagan did battle with both the Bushes and the...

    It's time to unite. Trump-Cruz in 2016. Yet here is the headline from the New York Times. Donald Trump or Ted Cruz? Republicans Argue Over Who Is Greater Threat The story reads in part: snip Say again? "The Republicans who dominate the right-leaning magazines, journals and political groups can live with Mr. Cruz..." Speaking for myself - I can more than "live with" Ted Cruz. In fact, if Donald Trump wins this nomination, I believe Ted Cruz should be to Trump as George H.W. Bush was to Reagan or Lyndon Johnson was to John F. Kennedy - the runner-up whose...

    Jeff [rey Lord] is calling for a Trump-Cruz ticket. Maybe Jeff didn't get the memo, but Trump has been arguing that Cruz isn't qualified to be President because of his Canadian birth. In which case, if Cruz isn't eligible to be President then how can he be eligible to be VP?

Interesting. If Jeb's "experienced" military advisors were so great, how come they didn't mitigate what they had to have known Obama was going to do? Phony crap.

    "The dynamic has turned against all these insiders, who are just being pummeled here, despite their individual records of accomplishment. I find that very interesting," he [Lord] told me. With Donald Trump and Ben Carson, the two are "pulling away." If the "insiders" go after Trump tonight, as Jeb Bush plans to do, Lord said, all they do is strengthen him by reinforcing that they are a bunch of insiders. And while he made it clear that he in no way works for Donald Trump, it was the billionaire who likely helped Lord get his job at CNN. Lord said...

    Well. This is telling. One of the striking aspects of Donald Trump’s announcement that he is running for president is the vehemence of his critics – on the conservative side. The normally even-keeled Dana Perino almost foamed on the set of Fox News’ “The Five” as she fumed about Trump’s line that he would not only build a wall that only he could build along the Mexican border but he would make the Mexicans pay for it. Over at National Review the normally astute Kevin Williamson went off not just the deep end but the very, very deep end in...

    CNN anchor Carol Costello’s apology is revealing. ... Why — how? — could a CNN anchor, a woman who is herself on record saying she was once assaulted by a boyfriend — possibly have the reaction to the Bristol tape that she did? The answer is that in reality, Costello’s contempt has nothing to do with Bristol Palin. Nor, it should be noted, does it have anything to do with Sarah Palin. What this is really all about is another liberal elitist who, though not to the manor born herself, is attracted by the sense of moral, intellectual, and cultural...
