    The Hill opinion columnist Joe Concha nuked the “marshmallow media” for consistently lobbing “T-ball” questions at former Vice President Joe Biden in the relatively few press conferences he’s held since clinching the Democratic nomination. This comes after the pro-Biden liberal media has dragged the country through nearly four years of mind-numbing anti-Trump political hell. With a potential new presidency at hand, the media have barely made Biden have to defend much — if any — of his leftist policy agenda. This is especially true of how the media has handled coverage of Biden’s radical economic agenda. As Concha put it...

    The hate-filled Lincoln Project failed to make any real impact on the election and The Hill reporter Joe Concha said it’s finally time for the NeverTrump group to take a hike. Concha held nothing back: “The two entities that had the worst election night were a.) the pollsters and b.) [T]he Lincoln Project.” The piece, headlined “Lack of influence means it's time to dismiss [T]he Lincoln Project,” argued that as far as losing records go, “nothing compares to the record of the #NeverTrumpers at [T]he Lincoln Project.” In Concha’s estimation, the group is the “New York Jets of political action...

    The Biden campaign is facing renewed criticism over its deep connections with Big Tech after both Twitter and Facebook censored a story from The New York Post detailing allegedly corrupt business deals by Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden. The move prompted fresh criticism on social media over the Biden transition team’s hiring of top Facebook executive Jessica Hertz, which reportedly came days after the 2020 Democrat’s campaign penned a letter to the social media giant urging them to censor President Trump’s posts. Twitter’s suppression of the Hunter Biden revelations also came days after the company’s director of public policy, Carlos...

    President Trump's Nobel Peace Prize nomination created shock waves on social media, with conservatives hailing it and liberals railing against it on Wednesday morning. Trump was nominated by Norwegian Parliament member Christian Tybring-Gjedde, who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. Tybring-Gjedde cited the president's role in brokering a landmark normalization deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) during an interview on Fox News Wednesday morning. “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde said, referring to Trump....

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) on Monday scolded a reporter who asked if widespread looting and violence that grabbed national headlines Sunday night was the result of courts and prosecutors "going too easy on looters the last time" it occurred in the Windy City. “It almost sounds as though you’re saying this is — the reason [this is happening] is because the courts and the prosecutors were not doing their job, that they’re going too easy on the looters from the last time around," ABC-7 political reporter Craig Wall asked Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown. “No, no, don’t — do...

    Director Oliver Stone told The New York Times in an interview published Monday that Hollywood has become "too fragile, too sensitive," with the 73-year-old adding, "You can’t make a film without a sensitivity counselor." The perspective from Stone, who is responsible for "Wall Street," "Born on the Fourth of July" and "JFK," comes ahead of his upcoming memoir, "Chasing the Light." "Everything has become too fragile, too sensitive. Hollywood now — you can’t make a film without a Covid adviser. You can’t make a film without a sensitivity counselor. It’s ridiculous," Stone told the Times. "It’s politically correct [expletive], and...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) ripped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Monday for her "astonishing" remarks on New York City's increased crime rates. Huckabee, speaking on Fox News, criticized the first-term Democratic lawmaker for saying at a recent virtual town hall meeting that factors contributing to the increased crime could include high unemployment and people who "need to feed their child" because "they don't have any money." “There’s a big difference between shoplifting and cold-blooded murder, and for her not to know the difference is frankly astonishing,” Huckabee said on “America's Newsroom." Shootings in New York are up 46...

    Mark Cuban told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he will vote for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden over President Trump in November, arguing that Trump "only wants to run a campaign" while Biden "wants to run a country." The endorsement comes as Biden continues to expand his lead over the incumbent in recent polling, including a New York Times-Sienna College national poll finding the former vice president enjoying a 14-point edge, 50 percent to 36 percent. "Donald Trump doesn't want to run a country. He wants to run a campaign," Cuban told Hannity on Tuesday night. "Joe Biden...

    Joe Concha, media reporter for The Hill, said on Friday that the only time presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has been challenged by the media was when urban hip-hop host Charlamagne Tha God addressed matters on race relations. “The bottom line is that Joe Biden is in the business of handpicked questions from handpicked outlets from safe situations,” Concha told “Fox & Friends.” Concha said that after Biden’s interview with Charlamagne Tha God on "The Breakfast Club" did “not go well,” the former vice president’s campaign staff wants to avoid that from happening again.

    CNN opted not to air President Trump's remarks on Friday's surprise jobs report showing 2.5 million jobs were added to the economy in May, with MSNBC carrying the comments partially, and Fox News, ABC, NBC and CBS carrying the speech from the Rose Garden in full. The president was in a celebratory mood following the report that the unemployment rate dropped from 14.7 percent in April to 13.3 percent in May. Analysts had expected the report would show unemployment rising to as high as 20 percent, and the new figures suggested an economic rebound could come more quickly. Stocks jumped...

    MSNBC host Chris Hayes sparked backlash from the left when he became the first primetime host on the network to cover a former aide's sexual assault allegations against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, with the hashtag #FireChrisHayes trending on Twitter. The "All-In" host welcomed New York magazine's Rebecca Traister to his program Wednesday night after she penned an essay, titled "The Biden Trap," that critical of the former vice president for not addressing Tara Reade's allegations in any interviews, thereby leaving Democratic women supporting his candidacy to answer questions about the allegations for him.

    MSNBC's Chris Hayes was ripped on social media for suggesting that the White House coronavirus task force team "rolled out the model showing 100k deaths after they knew it would be less" so President Trump could take a victory lap. "The most cynical interpretation of all this, one I can't quite bring myself to accept, is they rolled out the model showing 100k deaths after they knew it would be less than that so they could anchor everyone to that # and take a vicotry lap when "only" tens of thousands died," Hayes wrote to his 2.1 million followers on...

    Andrew Weissmann, a former member of Robert Mueller's Special Counsel that investigated Russia interference in the 2016 election, has signed with NBC and MSNBC as a legal analyst, The Hill confirmed with the networks on Friday. Weissmann, who was dubbed a "pitbull" in a New York Times 2015 profile for his time in the Justice Department regarding tough tactics in prosecuting cases, made his debut on Wednesday when publicly televised impeachment proceedings kicked off. "The key thing that the Democrats have to think about is, where are you going to be at the end? What is it that you’re going...

    "The View" co-host Joy Behar was roasted on social media after claiming in a heated interview with Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday that she never wore blackface, a claim that was quickly contradicted on Twitter by the president's eldest son. "[President Trump] called some Mexicans rapists, he attacked the handicapped, he bragged about it," she said. "We heard the 'Access' tape, where he bragged about grabbing women by their genitalia." "We've all done things that we regret, I mean, if we're talking about bringing a discourse down, Joy, you've worn blackface," he responded. "No, I have not," Behar shot back....

    Former Weekly Standard editor-in-chief Steve Hayes and National Review's Jonah Goldberg will be joining forces to launch a new conservative media company, according to a Thursday report. The Axios report comes just three months after The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine that was critical of President Trump that has been printing since 1995, announced it would be ceasing publication. The report says Goldberg and Hayes, who are currently seeking investors, plan "a reporting-driven, Trump-skeptical company that will begin with newsletters as soon as this summer, then add a website in September, and perhaps ultimately a print magazine." It adds that...

    The sugary praise, often from former critics, does his memory no favors. The past week has featured so much extravagant praise of John McCain that Jill Abramson, the former editor of the New York Times, had to admit “McCain would cringe over some of the glowing tributes pouring in.” Take this example from The New Yorker: In death, McCain had finally become one with the country that was the object of his deepest faith, and any praise lavished on him, during the funeral proceedings or at any point afterward, would redound to the greater glory of America. Yes, of course,...

    The Washington Post "Fact-checker" column awarded Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) "four Pinocchios" on Tuesday after she said in a tweet that a "$21 trillion mistake" by the Pentagon could have paid for about two-thirds the cost of a Medicare for all bill. “$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions ‘could not be traced, documented, or explained.’ $21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T. That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon," she wrote to her 1.46 million followers. The column said the tweet was wrong on a couple of counts. First,...

    Conservatives on Twitter lashed out following the swift cancellation of Roseanne Barr's hit ABC program after here racist tweet, citing a double-standard in entertainment for those who are conservative or support President Trump. The right-leaning critics took particular aim at ESPN’s decision to hire Keith Olbermann and MSNBC’s continued employment of Joy Reid. Both have made provocative comments in the past. ABC canceled Barr’s show after she wrote a tweet that referred to former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the “The Planet of the Apes” and “the Muslim Brotherhood.” Olbermann was recently hired by ESPN for...

    ESPN lost 2 million subscribers in the past 12 months, according to an annual earning report released by Disney, the sports network's parent company.
