  • REPORT: CNN Hack Journalist ‘Visibly Shaken’ After Network Chief Scolds Him for Being Too Emotional in Coverage of Trump Town Hall

    CNN chief Chris Licht reportedly scolded far-left ‘journalist’ Oliver Darcy for being too emotional in his coverage of the network’s town hall event with Trump. Darcy released his Reliable Sources newsletter, whining about the debate 15 minutes after CNN released a statement essentially bragging about the event. Darcy was reportedly ‘visibly shaken’ over this exchange. Prior to joining CNN, Darcy worked for conservative outlets like The Blaze and the Daily Caller, but since joining CNN, has become a major mouthpiece for the far left in pushing lies about Russian collusion and focusing his attention on smearing Trump and conservatives.

    New York(CNN) Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of Fox Corporation, acknowledged in a deposition taken by Dominion Voting Systems that some Fox News hosts endorsed false claims that the 2020 election was stolen. Murdoch's remarks were made public in a legal filing as part of Dominion's $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News. In his deposition, Murdoch rejected that the right-wing talk network as an entity endorsed former President Donald Trump's election lies. But Murdoch conceded that Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, Maria Bartiromo, and former host Lou Dobbs promoted the falsehood about the presidential contest being stolen. "Some of our commentators were...
  • CLOWN: CNN’s Oliver Darcy Wails Elon Musk ‘Misleading the Public’ with Twitter Files

    CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy acted like a flunky for the FBI, throwing a conniption over Twitter owner Elon Musk’s revelations that the bureau paid the platform millions to censor Americans. Darcy flailed in a Dec. 20 so-called “analysis” that Musk was “misleading the public — again.” He editorialized that “[t]he embattled billionaire, perhaps seeking to distract from the chaos he has wrought at his social media company, is making grossly misleading claims about Twitter and the FBI.” Darcy couldn’t handle Musk’s criticism that the FBI paying Twitter $3.4 million through a “reimbursement program” for staff time dedicated to...

    Staffers at The Washington Post are livid at publisher Fred Ryan. That's according to conversations I had on Wednesday with nearly a dozen employees at The Post who expressed fury at the way Ryan announced in a town hall that the company would undergo layoffs in early 2023. Ryan said that the layoffs would only amount to a single-digit percentage of the workforce and that the overall size of the company would not shrink, given there would be reinvestments in other areas. But none of that quelled outrage from staffers. The staffers at The Post, who were already seeking answers...

    "....A former Twitter executive, who recently exited the company, described the situation to me as a "mass exodus." Asked about the situation, the former executive told me, "Elon is finding out that he can’t bully top senior talent. They have lots of options and won’t put up with his antics." "They will struggle just to keep the lights on," the former executive added....."

    Fox's obsession with Hillary Clinton is only growing more fierce. The right-wing talk channel, which has in recent days dishonestly twisted a court filing from special counsel John Durham to accuse Clinton of nefariously spying on Donald Trump, mentioned Clinton's name nearly 200 times Thursday, according to a search of rush TV transcripts. The escalation in the network's already-manic coverage of the former presidential candidate came after she delivered remarks at the New York Democratic convention.

    Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, one of the few high-profile news personalities who retained a reputation of integrity as the channel he worked for leaned hard into right-wing and conspiratorial programming, announced Sunday that he is departing the network and joining CNN+ to host a weekday show. Wallace made the stunning announcement of his departure from Fox News at the end of "Fox News Sunday," the channel's flagship weekly program that he has moderated since 2003. "After 18 years — this is my final 'Fox News Sunday.' It is the last time, and I say this with real sadness, we...

    New York (CNN Business)CNN is suspending prime time anchor Chris Cuomo "indefinitely, pending further evaluation," after new documents revealed the cozy and improper nature of his relationship with aides to his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The benched anchorman is declining to comment. A second hour of "Anderson Cooper 360" will air in Cuomo's place on Tuesday night. Tuesday's announcement about the suspension was the equivalent of a cable news shockwave. Cuomo's 9 p.m. program is frequently CNN's most-watched hour of the day. He is a larger-than-life presence at the network. And he was determined to stay on...

    We have all seen the effects of a growing tide of portals and outlets seeking to silence, deplatform, limit, or outright remove specific voices and sources from public view. The justifications are numerous, and usually more hysterical than lucid. What is truly perplexing however is when a member of the media itself - a purported journalist no less - actively calls for the silencing of others in their field. Welcome, fair-minded citizens, to the vocational calling of Oliver Darcy, from CNN.Darcy works in tandem with the infamous media hall monitor from their Reliable Sources program -- call him Stelter The...

    CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy is a “vocal advocate of censorship and speech controls,” according to George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley, who wrote Monday that Darcy’s campaign to urge Twitter to label accounts as “disinformation” is part of a broader threat to free speech. Turley wrote: We previously discussed the unrelenting drumbeat of censorship on the Internet from Democratic leaders, including President-elect Joe Biden. Those calls are growing as anti-free speech advocates see an opportunity in the Biden Administration to crackdown [sic] on opposing views. One vocal advocate of censorship and speech controls has been CNN...

    Tuesday on CNN’s “Right Now,” host Brianna Keilar featured a list of Republican Senators who have not made public comments “acknowledged Joe Biden is president-elect.” Keilar said, “You can count on one hand how many Republicans acknowledged Joe Biden is president-elect. Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, Ben Sasse of Nebraska. The rest here are silent, emboldening the president as he refuses to concede. But why? Oliver Darcy here to shed like on this subject. Tell us really what is in the calculus of GOP senators according to your reporting.”

    The Sinclair Broadcast Group said it will postpone and rework a segment it planned to air this weekend suggesting Dr. Anthony Fauci was responsible for the creation of the coronavirus. The baseless conspiracy theory was set to air during the program "America This Week" hosted by Eric Bolling. A memo sent to its local television stations instructed news directors to avoid airing the most recent episode of Bolling's show, which was supposed to include the conspiracy theory. "After further review of this week's originally planned episode, it's clear we need to provide additional context to the highly controversial segment regarding...

    CNN is offering conflicting reports about whether or not the protesters who have declared the territory of CHAZ are armed, one of the network's former producers pointed out. Over the past several days, a portion of Seatle's downtown area has been taken over by anti-police demonstrators and has created its own borders and forbids the presence of law enforcement. The territory is called Capitol Hill autonomous zone, or CHAZ. CNN media correspondent Oliver Darcy attempted to dismiss the violent element of CHAZ in a report on Thursday evening, saying that presence of militant Antifa members is "grossly exaggerated in right-wing...

    New York (CNN Business) Staffers at The New York Times expressed dismay Wednesday over the newspaper's decision to publish an op-ed written by Republican Sen. Tom Cotton that called for the U.S. military to be deployed in cities across the country to help restore order. The op-ed was published in The Times opinion section, but staffers from both opinion and the newsroom - which operate separate from one another - publicly dissented. A parade of Times journalists tweeted a screen shot showing the headline of Cotton's piece, "Send In the Troops," with the accompanying words: "Running this puts Black @NYTimes...

    An assistant librarian says she was fired after reporting two town employees having sex in the library late last month — and now she plans to file a lawsuit against the New Mexico town. Jamie Kurz walked in the Estancia Public Library before opening one morning and heard noises emitting from the children’s section of the library, her attorney, Joseph CampBell, told KOB-TV. When she walked over to investigate, Kurz saw two town employees having sexual intercourse, the attorney said. “Right in the middle of the library, in front of God and everybody,” attorney CampBell told the local news station....

    CNN is grasping at straws to explain away Americans' waning interest in the impeachment trial. On Reliable Sources Sunday, host Brian Stelter and his CNN colleagues Oliver Darcy and John Avlon blamed it on the “Fox [News] firewall” which apparently keeps the right ignorant of Democrat arguments. Besides dismissing conservatives as indoctrinated, the liberal panel also attacked the Trump administration was “flabby snowflakes” who were used to preferential media treatment. That last statement was in reference to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calling NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly a “liar,” last week. The panel also brought up CNN reporter Manu...

    ThinkProgress, a progressive news website founded more than a decade ago, is up for sale, its publisher, the Center for American Progress, announced on Monday. "Unfortunately, like so many other news outlets that have relied on advertising to fund its work, ThinkProgress has seen a significant drop in revenue in recent years, along with other financial strains," Navin Nayak, executive director of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, said in a statement provided to CNN Business. "In addition, events over the last few years have underscored the divergent missions of American Progress and ThinkProgress."

    After news came out about mass layoffs at HuffPost, Buzzfeed and Gannett -- in the midst of the media's relentless smear-job against the Covington Catholic students -- right-wing Twitter had a field day. Tons of leftist journalists announced they were laid off on Twitter and the top meme was telling them to "learn to code" -- which is the same advice the media gave middle Americans whose jobs are being taken in traditional industries. Talia Levin, who was hired by Media Matters last year after being fired by the New Yorker for smearing an ICE agent as a Nazi because...
