    NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd has a wife who’s active in Democratic Party strategic communications, and sometimes donates to Democrats. In 2012, Kristian Denny Todd contributed $2,500 to Sen. Tim Kaine. Todd never felt any need to disclose this during his three recent Kaine interviews on NBC (August 7, September 18, and October 23). But Maverick Mail & Strategies, the firm Mrs. Todd founded in 2007 with fellow James Webb aides Steve Jarding and Jessica Vanden Berg, did heavy lifting for openly socialist Bernie Sanders for President this year. Open Secrets shows a bill for $1.992 million made...
  • Schultz: MSNBC Fired Me Because They Were 'In the Tank for Hillary' and I Supported Bernie

    Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz opened up in a recent interview about why he believes he was fired in 2015. Schultz, who’s now anchor of a show on RT, told National Review‘s Jamie Weinstein that he believes it was because he supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which was problematic, he charged, because the network was “in the tank for Hillary Clinton.”He described how MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was a "watchdog" who closely managed which stories were covered, and relayed one incident where his story about Sanders’s launch of his campaign was bumped in favor of other news. Sanders gave his official campaign...
  • NBC Faces Backlash for Publishing Claim That Christianity Is Used to 'Prop Up' White Supremacy

    Christian Post ^ | 04/03/2018 | Samuel Smith
    NBC News received much backlash on social media after it published an op-ed on Easter Sunday that contended that the Christian faith is being used to "prop up" white supremacy. As Christians across the world celebrated the resurrection of Christ on Sunday, NBC News published an op-ed written by Christian author Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, titled "Christians must remember how easily and often our faith is used to defend white supremacy." "As a white evangelical in America, I can't celebrate Easter in 2018 without working to reclaim the concept of redemption," a subheading for the article states. Wilson-Hartgrove, who authored the 2018...
  • F Chuck Todd just said in Miami radio President Trump "rarely tweets factually"

    Every Friday F Chuck Todd promotes his weak Meet the Depressed Sunday talk show. Sleepy eyed Chuck and the local talker said NOTHING about the lowest jobless claims in 45 years, NOTHING about North Korea coming to the table, increasing consumer confidence or the push to finally rebuild our long ignored infrastructure. Instead, F Chuck Todd and the local WIOD guy attacked Trump for tweeting about Amazon's attempt to destroy small business competitors, firing an ineffective VA chief, and supposedly screwing up Russia. Oh, and F Chuck Todd also said it was dangerous for Trump to supposedly demagogue against the...
  • White House Reporters Do Their Best To Race Bait — Sarah Sanders Makes Them Instantly Regret It

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders batted away reporters’ best attempts at race baiting Wednesday. “There are a lot of African-American moms all across the country feel as though their sons are die,” NBC News’ Kristen Welker said. “Doesn’t the president feel like he needs to do something about that?” Sanders swatted away the attempt at race-baiting. “I think we should do every single thing we can every day to protect the people of this country,” Sanders said. “I think the president–whether they’re black, white, Hispanic, male or female, rich or poor, we look for ways to protect the...
  • Rand Paul Advice To Trump: 'Don't Hire John Bolton' As National Security Adviser

    Nearly a week since U.S. President Donald Trump fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul advised against appointing former U.N. Ambassador and White House Chief of Staff John Bolton. Trump’s first choice, retired Navy special forces officer Robert Harward, who served under Defense Secretary John Mattis, turned down the position last week and reports say the White House has ruled out former CIA Director David Petraeus, who was ousted as the nation’s top spy amid a scandal over his sharing confidential documents with his mistress. Flynn resigned last week amid questions on whether he discussed sanctions with...

    “Human rights are, by definition, those fundamental freedoms inherent to every person in the world. They include the freedom to move about freely, to obtain an education, to worship as one chooses and to generally participate in society without fear. When people are prevented from following these pursuits on a wide scale, and the government does nothing to stop it, that constitutes a human rights crisis.” – Amnesty International USA Executive Director Margaret Huang, Gun violence is not a political issue. It’s a human rights crisis impinging on Americans’ freedoms. [via]

Rubio said, “I don’t like the way it happened. He should have been allowed to finish through the weekend.”

    (snip) NBC's 'Meet the Press' host Chuck Todd repeatedly asked Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin about the president's attitude, language, and word choice. President Trump made fun of the NBC host's "sleepy eyes" at a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday, and speculated that NBC might be "worse than CNN". "He's a sleeping son of a bitch, I'll tell you," Trump said about Chuck Todd's droopy eyes. "I understand you wanted to get back on an economic message, but ... last night he was praising authoritarian figures in China and North Korea and encouraging boos at the American press," Chuck Todd reported....
  • Meet the Press Panel Freaks: Incompetent Trump Handing NoKo a Victory

    When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war. Moderator Chuck Todd, still bitter because Trump called him a “sleeping son of a...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in an interview broadcast Sunday said she knows who she is when pressed about her claims of Native-American heritage. She was questioned during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" about an editorial in a Massachusetts newspaper, "Warren must resolve debate on heritage, which said a DNA test would "permanently resolve the issue." “Look, I do know. I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere," Warren said.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Hey, I’m old enough to remember last week, when every fake journalist in Texas and America was telling us that Texas senate candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, an Irish guy who represents a largely-Hispanic congressional district (thus the ‘nickname’), was the Democrat Party’s “rising star” who was going to whip Ted Cruz in the general election this coming November. Yeah, that was just another bit of fake news fed to all the fake reporters by the Democrats, who are desperate to pretend they have momentum and...

    Megyn Kelly’s Sunday night newsmagazine on NBC was originally billed as a weekly program but has been demoted to a program that will air “periodically,” according to a press release sent Tuesday by the network. "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" had an eight-episode run in the summer of 2017 to kick off Kelly’s tour at the Peacock Network before her 9 a.m. ET daily show premiered in the fall. The Sunday show was always scheduled to take a break for NBC’s coverage of “Sunday Night Football” and the Winter Olympics but was expected to return. NBC News sent a press...

    Monday was marked by the rolling train wreck that was former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg’s seemingly non-stop appearances on cable news shows taunting Special Counsel Robert Mueller for subpoenaing him. During his wild interviews (which lasted from mid-afternoon into the night), Nunberg made numerous suggestions that federal investigators may have some kind of case against President Trump. And that was all the liberal network news outlets needed to run with it. Both CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight kicked off their programs with the jaw-dropping spectacle. On CBS, anchor Jeff Glor even announced that they were pushing back...
  • Dem Mayor Helps Criminals Evade ICE, CBS & NBC Call it a ‘Feud’

    In an attempt to excuse Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf’s outrageous decision to help criminal aliens evade federal authorities, CBS and NBC portrayed the Democrat’s unlawful action as the result of a “feud” with the Trump administration over immigration policy. At least those two networks covered the story, unlike ABC, which has failed to discover the controversy.   “Much more ahead on tonight’s CBS Evening News, including the mayor who defied a federal agency,” anchor Jeff Glor teased Wednesday night. Introducing the report minutes later, he declared: “The battle over sanctuary cities has exploded into a public feud between the...
  • NBC's $12BILLION Olympic gamble backfires as viewers go cold on Pyeongchang Winter Games [tr]

    UK Daily Mail ^ | February 24, 2018 | Marlene Lenthang
    NBC's $12billion deal to cover the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang may not see the profits the network hopes for, as the games are rated the worst ever in NBC viewership history. This year's Winter Games in South Korea saw the number of views decline by 24 per cent compared to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, within the 18 to 49 years demographic. The slump in views may have burned a hole in NBC's wallet after the network invested $12billion to cover the cream-of-the-crop competition, but had to offer free ad time to advertisers when it failed to...

    Megyn Kelly has fashioned herself as a champion of the #MeToo movement, filling her NBC talk show, “Megyn Kelly Today,” with brave women fighting injustice. But a former colleague says it’s all an act. “She’s disrespectful,” Iren Halperin, a Fox News makeup artist for 20 years who retired in 2016, told Page Six. “She’s not for women. She’s extremely mean and rude to women.”

    In 2011, NBC paid a total of $4.38 billion for the rights to the next four Olympics. Three years later it bought another six for $7.7 billion. At the time, the deals looked to many like a sure thing. Now, they have started looking like they could end up being more of a burden than a boon. For years, the conventional wisdom in TV had been that even as younger viewers turned away from TV, live sports were invulnerable -- after all, the thinking went, people wanted to watch live sports, well, live.
