    Three months ago, Celine and her best friend, Natalie* were both laid off from the same ad agency. No longer able to afford her $3,200 rent in Brooklyn, Celine was forced to move back into her parents’ house in the suburbs. “I’m still reeling, my whole life was flipped on its head,” the 29-year-old says. The only thing more humiliating than getting fired and packing up your adult existence into your teenage bedroom? Seeing your best friend survive the same brutal layoff and emerge unscathed. “I love Natalie but she didn’t have to lift a finger because her husband is...

  • Tony Bobulinski Officially Files Lawsuit Against Fox News' Jessica Tarlov:

    Today I filed a lawsuit against Ms. Jessica Tarlov of Fox News for defamation. Although I am seeking compensatory, special, and punitive damages from her for the damage her public remarks inflicted on my personal and professional reputation, this is not about money. This is about the truth, for which I have been fighting for four years. It is important for media personalities like Ms. Tarlov to understand that lies have consequences.
  • White House: Biden Has Strong Recovery, But People ‘Busy’ and Watch ‘The Bachelor,’ Don’t Follow News Constantly

    Breitbart ^ | 03/23/2024 | Ian hatchett
    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” White House Communications Director Ben LaBolt stated that President Joe Biden put “the strongest economic recovery of anywhere on the planet” into motion, but “in 2020, for persuadable voters, the number one television show that they watched was ‘The Bachelor,'” and “People are busy in their lives. They’re not watching the news throughout the day.” Co-host Joe Scarborough asked, “Ben, how frustrating is it for you, we’ll just say for you, personally, that you’ve got these numbers, you’ve got — and the numbers are extraordinary, if you compare them, not only to our...

    On Wednesday, Jessica Tarlov, a liberal co-host on Fox News Channel's "The Five," accused former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski of having his legal fees paid by a Trump Super PAC, which prompted a demand for a retraction and an apology. "Tony Bobulinski's lawyers' fees have been paid by a Trump Super PAC that's as recent as January,” she claimed. Following the accusation, Bobulinski’s lawyer, Jesse R. Binnall, demanded an on-air retraction and an apology from Tarlov and threatened a defamation lawsuit against Fox if these demands weren’t met. "Let me be perfectly clear,” wrote Binnall. "We will immediately file...

    On Wednesday, Tony Bobulinski testified before Congress in the ongoing impeachment investigation of Joe Biden. His damning testimony so triggered Jessica Tarlov, the liberal co-host on Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” that she sought to undermine it by accusing Bobulinski of having a pro-Trump PAC pay his legal fees. "Tony Bobulinski's lawyers' fees have been paid by a Trump Super PAC that's as recent as January,” she claimed before rehashing a false claim about Donald Trump. “Do you think that a guy who's invested in how much better off he wants the United States to be—and really getting to the...

    Ronna McDaniel, the former head of the Republican National Committee (RNC), will join NBC News as a contributor. McDaniel will appear on “Meet The Press” this Sunday, giving her first interview since resigning as head of the RNC earlier this year. McDaniel is expected to be featured as part of election coverage on NBC and on the network’s sister cable channel, MSNBC. “It couldn’t be a more important moment to have a voice like Ronna’s on the team,” Carrie Budoff Brown, who leads political coverage at NBC, wrote in a memo shared with The New York Times. McDaniel became RNC...

    An attorney involved in efforts to upend the results of the 2020 election was arrested in federal court in Washington this week and ordered to turn herself in to authorities in Michigan as civil and criminal cases involving claims of voter fraud collided. Stefanie Lambert’s arrest came more than a week after officials had issued a bench warrant for failing to appear for a hearing in her criminal case in Michigan, where she is charged with illegally breaching voting machines, and days after she came under scrutiny for the release of documents as the attorney for an ally of former...

    Into the depleted field of journalism in America, a handful of websites have appeared in recent weeks with names suggesting a focus on news close to home: D.C. Weekly, the New York News Daily, the Chicago Chronicle and a newer sister publication, the Miami Chronicle. In fact, they are not local news organizations at all. They are Russian creations, researchers and government officials say, meant to mimic actual news organizations to push Kremlin propaganda by interspersing it among an at-times odd mix of stories about crime, politics and culture. While Russia has long sought ways to influence public discourse in...

    The CBS News boss who signed off on the controversial ouster of Catherine Herridge — a respected Washington correspondent who has been embroiled in a high-profile First Amendment case — is nevertheless being honored with a free speech award next month. CBS News president Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews was selected by Radio Television Digital News Association to be among 13 honorees at the 33rd annual First Amendment Awards at The Watergate Hotel in Washington DC on March 9. The irony was not lost ... “The RTDNA must be tone deaf to give Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews and CBS News an award for the First...

    “Be Evil” should be Google’s new motto these days. The anti-free speech Big Tech giant has continued its sordid habit of suppressing right-leaning media sources while inundating users with left-leaning content. A new analysis from media solutions company AllSides once again found that Google News is overwhelmingly elevating news media from “the left” while burying news media from “the right.” AllSides monitored Google News' homepage over a two-week period in 2023 and uncovered that a whopping 63 percent of 494 articles came from sources “on the left.” By contrast, only a negligible six percent came from sources “on the right.”...

    Below is my column in The Hill on the trouble brewing at CBS over the seizure of the files of acclaimed investigative reporter Catherine Herridge. The column broke the story on the uproar over not just her being laid off but her being locked out from her files. I am now hearing from CBS sources that the network is moving toward a resolution to turn over the files after the outcry. However, the concerns over Herridge’s firing and the network’s handling of her confidential notes continues to draw fire from journalists and commentators. The union issued a statement (below) after...
  • Some of the Same News Outlets Warning About 'Disinformation' Are Taking Millions To Print Chinese Propaganda

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | February 21, 2024 | Drew Holden
    When U.S. news outlets' lucrative peddling of Chinese propaganda was exposed in 2019 and 2020, it was a scandal. Human rights groups condemned the practice, and the New York Times and Wall Street Journal swore off Chinese Communist Party money. In the years since, however, a number of major U.S. newspapers and magazines have kept at it—accepting hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars from the Chinese Communist Party in exchange for publishing content by China Daily, a state-owned English-language paper. China Daily's Foreign Agents Registration Act filings show that between October 2020 and October 2023, the CCP mouthpiece paid...

    Sacramento, capital city of the EV-loving Golden State, is the latest city proposing to ban new gas stations or upgrading existing stations, unless of course you’re adding electric vehicle charging. The government recently issued a 2040 Sacramento General Plan, first reported by OPIS, which calls for “future-ready” gas stations. The plan states that the “city shall prohibit the establishment of new gas stations or the expansion of new fossil fuel infrastructure at existing gas stations unless the project proponent provides 50kW or greater direct current fast charger (DCFC) electric-vehicle charging stations on site at a ratio of at least one...
