    Katy Tur is opening up about her tumultuous childhood, and her reaction to her father coming out as transgender. The NBC News correspondent, who is the daughter of legendary Los Angeles broadcasters Zoey (formerly Bob) Tur and Marika Gerrard, sat down with CBS Sunday Morning to share her experience. Growing up, the broadcaster believed her parents, who were known for reporting the news from their helicopter, were "the coolest people in the world." Tur shared that she even "knew how to fly a helicopter" as a kid. "It was a really unique and interesting childhood that nobody else had," said...
  • Info about study that reversed numbers on conservatives

    06/10/2022 6:47:35 PM PDT · by Chicory · 11 replies
    I remember some years ago it came out that a social studies study on conservatives vs liberals came out looking bad for conservatives, and then a couple of years ago it was found they had reversed one of the numbers for conservatives which had made them look much worse than they were (and possibly they were actually better than liberals despite having been reported as worse, but I am not sure about that). Does anyone remember this well enough to give me a clue how to find out more about it? I haven't been able to configure a search that...

    Tesla just filed its annual proxy statement with the SEC and revealed it plans a three-for-one stock split, and that board member Larry Ellison does not plan to stand for re-election. Shares of Tesla were up by more than 1% after-hours having closed at $696.69 on Friday. In the filing, the company wrote of the proposed stock split, “Our success depends on attracting and retaining excellent talent,” and that “highly competitive compensation packages,” offering every employee an option to receive equity, helped Tesla to do that. “We believe the Stock Split would help reset the market price of our common...
  • Jan. 6 Commission primetime hearing was a ratings ‘BOMB’ for CBS, NBC, ABC

    If any of the January 6 Commission’s hearings are again scheduled to take place in prime time, it’s entirely possible that the networks will take a “hard pass” next time: The Hill’s Joe Concha adds some context: CNN and MSNBC were up because that’s basically the 1/6 Commission’s base, and no doubt they’ll be hoping for another hearing in prime time, but the networks certainly won’t. The Left criticized Fox News for not airing the hearing (it was broadcast on Fox Business) but they did discuss what was going on during their regular programming.
  • Jan. 6 panel's case against Trump: Doomed to become the latest debunked elite narrative?

    A string of recent revelations has raised questions about security posture of Capitol under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi prior to breach.Even as House Democrats' select committee on Jan. 6, 2021 argued Thursday that former President Trump is to blame for the chaos of that fateful day, explosive new reports collectively paint a very different picture of the Capitol breach, one suggesting the committee may be ignoring a slew of security failures that contributed to the tragic events of that day — and could leave the Capitol vulnerable in the future if unaddressed.With the credibility of the media and political establishment...

    The Democratic National Committee is fundraising off of the Jan. 6 committee hearing and attacking Republicans, according to a photo of an apparent DNC fundraising email posted on Twitter by the Republican National Committee. Under the heading Biden Harris Democrats, the DNC stated, "Tonight, TV cameras will turn to Capitol Hill as the January 6 Select Committee begins its public hearings into how Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican allies organized a mob and incited a deadly insurrection to attempt to overturn a fair, free, and secure election." Republicans have repeatedly denied these claims and are calling the committee "illegitimate"...

    As during Communist control of Soviet Russia, the Jan. 6 Committee’s purpose is to prop up a dying, corrupt regime.. The House Select Committee on Jan. 6 launched the public phase of its proceedings Thursday night in a prime-time hearing with all the fanfare of a Soviet show trial, complete with production assistance from a former president of ABC News. Just as the communists gathered in Moscow between 1936 and 1938 to purge their political opponents in public show trials, nine members of the lower chamber filed into the Cannon House Office Building to demonize their political opponents as domestic...

    The Stream ^ | Al Perrotta
    Last night’s J6 committee prime time scripted reality show featured an appearance by an officer injured in the Capitol Hill riot. No one celebrates Officer Caroline Edwards’ awful experience. After all, she wasn’t a cop executed, firebombed, nearly burned alive or assaulted by the ANTIFA/BLM army cheered and funded by the same Democrats putting on last night’s show. But we have to ask: Of all the officers involved that day, is Officer Edwards the one America needed to hear from?Actually, let’s hold that thought.Why Wasn’t Officer Edwards Asked Pertinent Questions?I’m bewildered by what Officer Edwards wasn’t asked.Did you think the...

    t’s the greatest political drama since the Watergate hearings. The committee that was formed to investigate the riot that led to the breach in security at the U.S. Capitol building by a semi-organized mob has created a prime-time extravaganza, carefully crafted by a Hollywood scriptwriter. It features a glittering cast of Democratic Party political characters with one goal in mind: to destroy the Republican Party. In truth, any effort to paint the clown-car conspiracy of Proud Boys/Oath Keepers as engaged in a “plot” to deny Joe Biden the presidency has already failed. The effort had apparently been penetrated by the...

    January 6th Hearing (2022) Directed by Bennie Thompson Drama/Horror - R - 6h 39m The latest Democrat drama January 6th Hearing, the hotly anticipated sequel to Impeachment 2 and Mueller Report: The Reckoning, aired on TV screens for the first time last night, and I am happy to report that it met—nay, EXCEEDED—my wildest expectations. I am still shaking and soiling my trousers hours after the credits rolled—it really was that horrific. Over the course of several hours, we learned that some rioters tried to destroy our democracy by entering the Capitol Building and taking selfies and putting their booted...

    A nonprofit aiming to defund disinformation online that has taken money out of the pockets of several prominent far-right websites now has its sights set on its most formidable target yet: Fox News. The group, Check My Ads, is hoping the success it has had in stripping advertising dollars from right-wing provocateurs including Steve Bannon, Glenn Beck and Dan Bongino will give it momentum as it attempts to confront a powerful media empire.

    Thirty-five House Republicans voted in May 2021 in favor of legislation that would have created an independent commission to investigate the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. While that bill never advanced, due to filibusters from Republicans in the Senate, the shadow of the vote has hung over various primary races as the conservative base reconsiders — and in some cases turns against — the GOP lawmakers who bucked the line in a party largely defined by loyalty to former President Donald Trump.

    Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over a televised hearing by the Jan. 6 Select Committee during a Thursday press conference. “Nancy Pelosi’s sham committee is illegitimate and its sole purpose is to punish Democrats’ political opponents,” Stefanik said about the committee. “It will not prevent another January 6 from happening. It is not about finding out why Nancy Pelosi left the capital so ill-prepared on that day, and it does absolutely nothing to address the numerous crises Americans are suffering from every single day because of Joe Biden [and] Nancy Pelosi’s radical far-left...

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid and "The View" co-host Joy Behar followed the same playbook on the heels of an armed man being arrested near Justice Brett Kavanaugh's home Wednesday morning and used the potential assignation attempt to scold Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., over gun control. Reid went first, addressing the Kavanaugh situation on "The ReidOut," with coverage of McConnell’s attacking House Democrats for not passing legislation to increase security for justices, which the Senate passed unanimously amid protests at justices' homes last month. Those protests followed the leak of a draft opinion that indicated the Supreme Court is likely...
