    CBS’ and Fox’s projected earnings will suffer a hit, according to two separate reports by Credit Suisse, and falling NFL ratings will continue to impact network earnings so long as they are on a downward trend. Why are earnings suffering? CBS’ crashing NFL ratings will directly impact company earnings, Omar Sheikh, Credit Suisse analyst, said. Special: 3 foods to avoid in 2017 “We expect third-quarter network advertising to decline 3 percent (previously +1 percent), driven by soft ratings for both the summer schedule and for the start of the NFL season,” Sheikh said, according to CNBC. “With only one of...
  • ‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Fall To Season Low As Titans Break Colts’ Streak

    It felt like a little bit of history was being made on Monday Night Football as the Tennessee Titans finally snapped their streak of 11 consecutive losses to the Indianapolis Colts. However, as social media sparked with ESPN not showing the playing of the national anthem, another type of history was also being made: Last night’s primetime broadcast of the Titans’ 36-22 victory stumbled to a season low with a 6.1 in metered market results. In a season stained by overall ratings declines and political controversy, that NFL Week 6 rating is down 13% from the early numbers of the...

    The woman perhaps, most singularly responsible for Colin Kaepernick remaining a free agent, and out of the NFL, has spoken. Much like you would expect, her words do not bode well for Kaepernick’s chances of resuming his career. Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend, Nessa Diab, sent this tweet out on Sunday: The reports that Colin will stand for the anthem are completely false! He has never discussed this with anyone. — NESSA (@nessnitty) October 8, 2017 [cut] After strong reactions like that from Diab, and reports from Kaepernick’s camp, La Canfora retracted his story the statement he had made earlier on...
  • CBS News Reveals Incredible Gun Ignorance: Stephen Paddock Fired ‘Automatic Rounds’

    In an October 4 report, CBS News claims that Las Vegas attacker Stephen Paddock had AR-15s that fired “automatic rounds.” The report begins with this paragraph: Machine guns— weapons that fire multiple shot with one pull of the trigger—have been technically illegal since the mid-1980s. Yet while the guns that Stephen Paddock used to shoot more than 500 people in Las Vegas fired automatic rounds, they were perfectly legal, according to rules established by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Two comments are necessary on this paragraph. The first point is that machine guns have not “technically...

    RUSH: We were among the first to mention yesterday this CBS employee, this executive by the name of Hayley Geftman-Gold. It was in the opening monologue of the program, and it probably got lost with many other things. But it was genuinely outrageous. Here is a lawyer, she is a counsel, staff lawyer for CBS, nothing to do with the news division. She’s in the junior executive suite. And she said that this shooting, well, it’s a bunch of Republican gun toters that got shot. They didn’t deserve any sympathy. She called Republicans repugs, as short for repugnant, and she...

    On Monday’s daily White House briefing, journalists went into overdrive, pushing for Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders to talk about gun control and what President Trump was planning on doing policy-wise after Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas. As soon as Huckabee-Sanders finished with an emotional statement commenting on the shooting, reporters immediately jumped in with questions about what the President’s thoughts were on gun control: JEFF MASON [REUTERS]: Sarah, many times when these horrible massacres occur, it leads to questions about gun control. Has this particular massacre made the president think anything more about pursuing tighter gun laws such as...

Geftman-Gold also wrote: “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing. I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

    However, it still was not a good result for CBS and the NFL as the matchup went late and delivered 9.9/18 in metered market ratings. That’s down 13% from the 2016 TNF opener on CBS and NFL Network when the New York Jets beat the Buffalo Bills 37-31. In the first of five TNFs that CBS has this year, last night’s game was shown on NFL Network and made its live debut on Amazon Prime.

    Oprah Winfrey convened a group of voters to examine the nation’s bitter political and cultural divide in her first segment as a special contributor to CBS’ “60 Minutes.” Winfrey held a roundtable session with 14 voters from West Michigan, evenly split between Donald Trump supporters and detractors. Winfrey pressed the group on Trump’s track record as President, whether his tweets are “modern presidential,” the need for limitations on free speech, and their perceptions of Trump vs. Hillary Clinton voters.

    This fake news report keeps on circulating. It is time to debunk the ignorant and misleading story. This “article” appears to have been published by CBS in 2014. The implication of the story is that it tells something about how many firearms are in each state.As with much fake news, the most important part is the headline.  In this case, it is a question: “How heavily armed is your state?” CBS gives the methodology. It is laughable to the point of being bizarre. To the ignorant, the methodology may seem plausible. To those with knowledge of the subject, it...

    Did CBS's 60 Minutes photoshop Steve Bannon into looking like a bleary-eyed drunk in his interview? That's the verdict of a professional photographer, who suspected something off after having seen Bannon in person. The short video Peter Duke made, explaining the photoshopper's art, is a must-see. Duke noted that color correction and grading can be used to make faces look better, but they can also be used to make people look worse. He pulled up some stills from the 60 Minutes interview.

    With the recovery process just beginning in some parts of Texas on Thursday, following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, President Donald Trump pledged $1 million of his own money to aid relief efforts. Only two of the Big Three Networks (ABC and CBS) found it fitting to report Trump’s act of charity. NBC Nightly News was the only network news show to ignore it, instead, they simply mentioned that Trump planned to visit Houston on Saturday. In addition to Trump’s pledge, Vice President Mike Pence was in Rockport, Texas to survey the damage, console the people, and personally help with...
