    Lawyers at firms representing the Trump campaign are worried that their work is not based on evidence and may undermine US democracy, The New York Times reported. Unnamed lawyers at Jones Day told the Times that they consider their colleagues' work to be intended to reduce public confidence in the results of the election, which President Donald Trump lost. Likewise, some of Porter Wright Morris & Arthur voiced concern in internal meetings, and at least one quit, per the Times. Trump has baselessly claimed there was widespread fraud in the election, and has launched more than a dozen legal challenges...

    As the connection between the mainstream media and the Democratic Party gets more blurred, The New York Times reported an MNSBC contributor is writing speeches for Joe Biden. After assisting in writing Biden's acceptance speech, presidential historian Jon Meacham has appeared on MSNBC at least three times since Saturday, per Mediaite. The Times reported he has been a paid contributor to the network, which has been very critical of President Donald Trump. The network has now told the Times he will no longer be paid, but he will continue to appear on the network for free. Meacham did not disclose...
  • ZERO Ethics: MSNBC Contributor Jon Meacham Has Been Writing Biden’s Speeches

    11/09/2020 6:18:08 PM PST · by ransomnote · 15 replies ^ | November 9th, 2020 | Curtis Houck
    In a revelation announced Monday by The New York Times, former Newsweek editor, liberal historian, and MSNBC/NBC contributor Jon Meacham has been writing speeches for former Vice President Joe Biden, including his Saturday night “victory speech.” Of course, Meacham and the Comcast-owned networks never disclosed this fact.The lack of ethics wasn’t entirely surprising, given how Meacham both endorsed Biden during the campaign and spoke August 20 at the Democratic National Convention, and neither network seemed to care. And that’s in addition to the fact that their ethically-challenged ranks include Mike Barnicle, Joy Reid, and Brian Williams.As per Annie Karni and...

    Presidential historian Jon Meacham was reportedly let go as an MSNBC contributor after he apparently failed to disclose to the network that he was a speechwriter for President-elect Joe Biden, including the victory speech he gave on Saturday night. Sources told The New York Times that Meacham had been "playing a larger role than was previously known" behind the scenes, "both writing drafts of speeches and offering edits on many of Mr. Biden’s big addresses, including one he gave at Gettysburg last month and his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention." Biden campaign press secretary TJ Ducklo told the...

    My favorite definition of a cynic: a premature realist. Today we are all cynics or damn well should be. Show me an American who trusts politicians, polls, news organizations and social media bigs who fancy themselves our new masters and I’ll show you a fool. Regarding the forecasts of how the election would go, Casey Stengel’s line about the hapless 1962 Mets fits the moment: “Can’t anybody here play this game?” As we stand on the smoking ruins of shattered predictions, the answer is no, a thousand times no. The usual suspects are bumblers — and that’s being kind because...

    1 The Sky Didn’t Fall The stock market didn’t crash upon Trump’s election. He didn’t ban Muslims. He didn’t put illegal immigrants on trains and send them back to Mexico. He didn’t start a nuclear war. In fact, a number of Trump’s policies and approaches largely worked as he promised. Some of those who didn’t support him in 2016 because they believed the dire forecasts have now come aboard the Trump train. 2 Trump Now Has a Track Record Unlike in 2016, Trump now has a performance record to judge him by. No longer the complete “wild card,” he did...

    Former lead strategist for Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign James Carville predicted Monday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that President Donald Trump will lose the election, and the results will be known early in the evening. Carville said, “First of all, we’re going to know the winner of this election by 10:00 tomorrow night. What people are doing is unnecessarily scaring people and making them unnecessarily nervous.”

    Contrary to the prevailing wisdom among the cognoscenti, history and current circumstances suggest President Donald Trump is going to defeat former Vice President Joe Biden - for some of the very same reasons he came from behind in 2016 to shock the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. It is understandable why conventional wisdom is getting this wrong again. Trump is down in the polls, the nation’s demographics are continuing to change in ways unfavorable to Trump and Republicans, the coronavirus has wrought death and economic destruction throughout the land and Trump’s personality provokes stormy oceans of antipathy - perhaps most...

    NBC ^ | 10 29 2020 | Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny
    One month before a purported leak of files from Hunter Biden's laptop, a fake "intelligence" document about him went viral on the right-wing internet, asserting an elaborate conspiracy theory involving former Vice President Joe Biden's son and business in China. The document, a 64-page composition that was later disseminated by close associates of President Donald Trump, appears to be the work of a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, according to researchers and public documents. The author of the document, a self-identified Swiss security analyst named Martin Aspen, is a fabricated identity, according to analysis by disinformation researchers, who also...

    This is Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, on MSNBC this afternoon, a portion of her report with correspondent Vaughn Hillyard about early voting in Arizona. HILLYARD: It is stunning and worth noting that the president going up to the rural part of the state where there’s a much larger population base — is worth noting. I stopped up there yesterday, into a couple towns — Lake Havasu, Kingman, Bullhead City. I went to one early voting location, and one, only one person out of 50 said they were voting for Joe Biden!

    Critics are baffled that the mainstream media has largely ignored Tucker Carlson’s interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden who said the Biden family shrugged off concerns that Joe Biden’s alleged ties to his son's business deals could put a future presidential campaign at risk – raising questions about whether the “lapdog press” is still worthy of public trust. Bobulinski, a retired lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, sat down with Carlson for a one-hour interview that aired on Tuesday night. Bobulinski said he raised concerns in 2017 to the former vice president's brother Jim Biden, about...

    MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace isn’t having any of conservative columnist Peggy Noonan’s sexist criticism of Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. In a controversial article published over the weekend, The Wall Street Journal opinion writer rubbished the senator from California, who could become the first Black woman to be vice president, for being “giddy” on the campaign trail. Noonan wrote: “She’s dancing with drum lines and beginning rallies with “Wassup, Florida!” She’s throwing her head back and laughing a loud laugh, especially when nobody said anything funny. She’s the younger candidate going for the younger vote, and she’s going for a...

    Breaking news is becoming a rare occurrence in the coverage of the two liberal news networks, particularly on the night of Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation to the Supreme Court. CNN and MSNBC chose not to air the historic vote in the Senate that confirmed Barrett as the 115th justice and only the fifth woman to the Supreme Court. The vote resulted in 52-48 with Maine Sen. Susan Collins as the sole Republican to join Democrats in opposition. Both networks largely covered Barrett's confirmation through the prism of the coronavirus outbreak with CNN anchors shaming the Trump administration for hosting a...

    Shepard Smith, once a star anchor at Fox News, made headlines last year when he abruptly left the network. Now, his highly anticipated — and heavily promoted — new show at CNBC is falling behind repeats of Fox Business show Lou Dobbs Tonight. Since its launch on September 30, CNBC’s The News with Shepard Smith has presented a sleek hard news program with big name guests like Dr. Anthony Fauci — all while facing a continued decline in viewership.

    The entitled male is hard to shut up. Recent displays of infuriating "manterrupting" illustrate how tough it can be to manage the problem. CBS News journalist Lesley Stahl, in her "60 Minutes" interview Sunday with President Donald Trump, was interrupted, talked over, instructed and lectured about how to speak. Despite - or perhaps because of - her unrattled persistence, Trump finally cut her off completely and walked out of the interview early. As every woman who has sat seething through a meeting knows, "manterrupting" is real. Social science studies suggest that men interrupt women 33 percent more than they interrupt...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden told NBC News’ Kristen Welker Friday that his son Hunter Biden “has not made money in terms of… what are you talking about?” She asked the Democratic nominee about the growing scandal and release of emails from the recently discovered Hunter Biden laptop allegedly showing extraordinary deep seated corruption regarding his son’s business dealings with foreign government, mainly China, Ukraine and Kazakstan.“In retrospect, were any of those relationships inappropriate or unethical?” asked NBC News’ Kristen Welker.Biden denied everything, saying even during the debate that his son “did not make money” off of China. That, however,...
