    (CNN)It seems Michael Bloomberg entered the presidential race for at least two reasons: he wants to be president and he understands the importance of denying President Trump a second term. His late entrance into the race, however, means every decision he makes is exponentially more consequential as the clock counts down to November 3. His strategy so far has been to spend -- and spend some more -- blanketing the media landscape with the message that he's the best candidate to take on Trump.
  • MSNBC Suggests FBI Should Track Young White Men Online, Radicalize Them, Provide Resources for Creating Explosives, Then Arrest Them

    In a shocking segment, MSNBC’s Katy Tur suggested that the FBI should be tracking young white men online to radicalize them, provide resources for creating explosives, and then arrest them. Tur was comparing young white men to ISIS terrorists in an interview with Frank Figliuzzi, the former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence at the FBI. “When you’re looking at ISIS or you’re looking at radical Islamic terrorism, I covered a number of stories where the FBI would track young kids or young men and they would talk to them online and say ‘you know, here’s how you build a bomb,’ or...

    Disney-Pixar’s Onward will feature the first self-identified LGBTQ character in an animated Disney film. While this isn’t the first time Disney has featured its first LGBTQ character in its cinematic universe, it is the first animated film.... The character, Officer Specter, will appear briefly in the film’s story, in a scene where she is discussing her girlfriend with other characters. While it is unclear if Specter represents the lesbian or bisexual communities, it is a clear alignment with the LGBTQ community...

    Bernie Sanders went ballistic at NBC and MSNBC execs ahead of the Democratic debate this week — jabbing one top TV exec repeatedly in the face with his finger and accusing the networks of offensive negative coverage. Surging Sanders stormed through the walk-through for the Las Vegas debate, singling out one top producer at the end and aggressively sticking his finger in his face. One shocked witness said, “Bernie marched right up to NBC and MSNBC’s head of creative production and began jabbing his finger right in his face, yelling, ‘Your coverage of my campaign is not fair . . .

    Contribution records appear to show that the newly hired heads of the National Public Radio Foundation and National Public Radio (NPR) are liberal partisans. So why does NPR continue to receive taxpayer funding? The new Chair of the NPR Foundation Board of Trustees John McGinn gave the maximum-allowed $2,800 to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) presidential campaign Mar. 2, 2019. The contribution occurred just months before being elected to his new position for a three-year term, Federal Election Commission records revealed. The FEC lists his occupation as Vice Chairman at the NPR Foundation at the time of his donation. He began...

    Washington - A counter-terrorism analyst at the US Defense Intelligence Agency pleaded guilty on Thursday to leaking secret information to journalists, including details about foreign countries' weapons systems. Henry Kyle Frese, 31, who was arrested in October, faces a maximum of 10 years in prison when he is sentenced in June, the Department of Justice said in a statement. It detailed how Frese had leaked information to two unnamed journalists, one of whom he lived with, in 2018 and 2019. The journalists involved appeared to work for CNBC and NBC News, according to US media. CNBC, citing "sources with direct...

    Washington (CNN) The intelligence community's top election security official delivered a briefing to lawmakers last week warning them that the intelligence community believes Russia is already taking steps to interfere in the 2020 election with the goal of helping President Donald Trump win, three sources familiar with the matter tell CNN. Last week's briefing, led by election security official Shelby Pierson and first reported by The New York Times, addressed the overall picture of Russia's efforts, including hacking, weaponizing social media and attacks on election infrastructure, one of the sources said. The briefers said Russia does favor Trump, but that...

    Oh, my, that wasn’t what Mr. Excitement wanted to hear at all: Wednesday night’s televised debate that featured the mega-billionaire being pummeled repeatedly by his Democrat opponents drew a record audience of 33.5 million, according to Nielsen Fast National Data. No doubt when Bloomberg was being safely tucked into his lush bed last night by his man-servant Jeeves, the former New York City Mayor was placating himself over his dismal performance with the thought that, hey, nobody watches these things, anyway. So, no harm, no foul, right? Wrong. Mr. Excitement no doubt figured that he could make up for what...

They are not even trying to hide it anymore. But the truth is more shocking than you know.

    The media are sounding the alarm. As Bernie Sanders solidifies his lead over his 2020 Democratic presidential competitors, members of the media are starting to worry that a race that once appeared impossibly easy for Democrats to win is suddenly slipping from their grasp. These TV talking heads are now forecasting not just a possible Trump re-election, but a 49-state, Walter Mondale-style blowout.
  • Woe to the Weaponizers of Avenatti

    For its 2019 dinner, the White House Correspondents' Association skipped the traditional comedian and invited a historian instead. Ron Chernow buttered up every journalist in the room by proclaiming: "You folks in the media write the early drafts of history, and we historians the later ones. Your work gives freshener and color and immediacy to our sagas. ... you do noble work to preserve democracy." Everyone in the room understood the code words here. "Preserving democracy" is equated with opposing President Donald Trump. "Democracy" means removing Trump from office. His election could cause democracy to "die in darkness." So the...

    I am one of the many women Mike Bloomberg’s company tried to silence through nondisclosure agreements. The funny thing is, I never even worked for Bloomberg. But my story shows the lengths that the Bloomberg machine will go to in order to avoid offending Beijing. Bloomberg’s company, Bloomberg LP, is so dependent on the vast China market for its business that its lawyers threatened to devastate my family financially if I didn’t sign an NDA silencing me about how Bloomberg News killed a story critical of Chinese Communist Party leaders. It was only when I hired Edward Snowden’s lawyers in...

    CNN pundit Ana Navarro faced a fierce backlash after she mocked a wedding photo of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller on Twitter, saying: 'God help us. It's going to procreate.' The republican political commentator, and regular on The View, was hit with a barrage of criticism for the 'disgusting' tweet which attracted more than 12,000 comments, 43,000 likes and was shared nearly 5,000 times. Navarro, 48, a strident critic of Donald Trump who once described Stormy Daniels' disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti as 'the holy spirit', was also accused of hypocrisy.

    Pearson, the world's largest textbook publisher, announced that it is moving from a traditional to a "digital first" publishing model. This development upends several traditions that are more than a century old. It will bring about a digital transformation in textbook publishing that has been in the works for a long time and will fundamentally change the way college students get their educational materials. The traditional model for publishing textbooks has been simple: An author, typically a full-time college professor, writes a textbook under contract with a publisher. The publisher puts out a print edition, gets course instructors to adopt...

He was feted, he was hosted by CNN, he was promoted, he was trumpeted. There were people — and I’m not making this up ’cause I commented on it at the time — there were people who were actually touting Michael Avenatti as the Democrat nominee for 2020 as the only guy who could beat Trump. And there were even Republicans, serious Never Trump Republicans who...
