    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Trump, as only he can do it, got onto his Twitter account Tuesday evening and trolled the fake journalists at CNN and MSNBC who helped promote one of the fake Russian-staged anti-Trump rallies on November 12, 2016: “Bad ratings @CNN & @MSNBC got scammed when they covered the anti-Trump Russia rally wall-to-wall. They probably knew it was Fake News but, because it was a rally against me, they pushed it hard anyway. Two really dishonest newscasters, but the public is wise!” Never. Stop. Tweeting....

    Watching the Olympics was a big deal when I was a kid, a pleasurable family affair. I tuned in to the 2018 Olympics expecting to enjoy extraordinary performances. Instead, the announcer began introducing the next performer as a hero for the LGBT community. I immediately turned the channel. Folks, I am so sick of leftists corrupting everything, usurping every opportunity to promote the left's anti-God and anti-America agendas. When will We the People just say no? A U.S. Olympic team homosexual skater, in essence, gave Vice President Pence his middle finger, refusing to meet Pence. Leftists hate Pence for blocking...
  • NBC breathlessly reports...needles and feces in San Francisco's Tenderloin, as news

    In something dubbed "investigative" reporting, NBC would have us know that San Francisco's Tenderloin district is a pigpen, filled to the brim with junkie needles and human excrement. The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of downtown San Francisco in search of trash, needles, and feces.  The investigation revealed trash littered across every block.  Survey also found 41 blocks dotted with needles and 96 blocks sullied with piles of feces. File under non-news, unless you like minutia.  You wonder how much time they invested on the story for being able to tell us that.  As if it were something new. Anyone who has lived for...

    I’m simply tired of the Left’s latest round of “debate” over gun control and immigration “reform.” It’s beyond tedious at this point, and I blame the Russians.Here’s the Left’s complete argument, on both issues:”SHUT UP! I’m on a roll.”And another thing I’m sick of: the Winter Olympics. Not the games so much as the coverage: How NBC Flubbed Its Coverage, Reported The Wrong Gold Medalist, Then Botched The Correction Of One Of The Most Stunning Upsets In Olympic History.This was the race in which snow boarder Ester Ledecká, who entered the women’s Super-G on a whim and a set of...

    After some thought, Adam Rippon has decided to decline the offer of becoming an NBC correspondent for the remainder of the Olympic games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Earlier today, it was announced that the figure skater, who has become a prominent highlight of these games, was going to have his hand at commentary. However, he has decided to turn down the offer after he realized he would have to give up his Olympic standing and credential for the position. By joining NBC as a correspondent, he wouldn’t be allowed to participate in the closing ceremony. “I am so flattered that...

    At the halfway point of the XXIII Winter Olympics, things are certainly feeling a little chilly for both Team USA and NBC. As last night’s primetime coverage displayed even with the surprise silver in the short-track speedskating that John-Henry Krueger scored, both the medal count for America’s athletes and the ratings for the broadcaster are struggling to gain traction in the PyeongChang games.

    Heading into tonight’s primetime coverage with Lindsey Vonn’s XXIII Winter Games debut and men’s figure skating, NBC could sure use a win – at least when it comes to viewership. (Snip) Putting up NBC 2018 against the broadcast-only coverage of February 13, 2014’s XXII Winter Games and things start to really sting. Last night’s primetime featuring Mikaela Shiffrin and Nathan Chen in PyeongChang dropped a hard 29% in sets of eyeballs. In smaller numbers but still significant for NBCUniversal, NBCSN had its best night of the 2018 Games so far with 2.75 million tuning in.

    NBC Olympics✔ @NBCOlympics You'd be shocked, too. đŸ˜± Ester Ledecka, a world champion SNOWBOARDER, shocks the field to win a surprise-gold by 0.01 in alpine skiing women's super-G! #WinterOlympics http://bit.ly/2BL0w0l 1,749 people are talking about this As the old saying goes: Don’t you dare cut away to the figure skating until all of the skiers have their time in the snow. NBC learned this the hard way during the network’s Olympics coverage on Friday evening, when commentators Bode Miller and Dan Hicks decided to crown Anna Veith, one of the most dominant Super-G competitors in the world, the winner of...

    Bode Miller becomes the latest member of the Atonement Club after making sexist comments “Sorry seems to be the hardest word,” Elton John once annoyingly crooned. He’ll get no argument from NBC. During its coverage of the PyeongChang Games, the network seems to be issuing some kind of apology nearly every night. As Michael McCarthy of The Sporting News observed, “If the Olympics gave out medals for apologies, NBC Sports would be in great shape at the 2018 Winter Games.” The latest was delivered by skiing analyst Bode Miller, who during Wednesday night’s telecast, got all sexist on us when...

    The day after a shooter killed 17 people at a Florida high school, President Donald Trump offered comforting words - for gun owners. "We are committed to working with state and local leaders to help secure our schools and tackle the difficult issue of mental health," Trump said in brief remarks at the White House. "It is not enough to simply take actions that make us feel like we are making a difference. We must actually make that difference." Translation: Your guns are safe. With Republicans in control of both chambers of Congress - and Democrats holding enough seats to...

    NBC's Katie Couric was slammed across social media for saying Dutch successes in Olympic speed skating were because skating is an “important mode of transport” in their country. “It’s probably not a news flash to tell you the Dutch are really, really good at speed skating… ‘Why are they so good?’ you may be asking yourself,” Couric mused during Friday’s opening ceremony. “Because skating is an important mode of transportation in a city like Amsterdam.” She said Amsterdam “has lots of canals that can freeze in winter. So, for as long as the canals have existed, the Dutch have skated...

    The Department of Homeland Security made the rare move Monday to officially discredit an NBC News report that claimed a top Trump official found that “Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 presidential election.” In a statement, DHS said the “breaking news” report was not only wrong and hyped but is also being ripped by other media. In the report, NBC interviewed Jeanette Manfra, the head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security, who said, “We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually...

    When it comes to trolling at the Olympics, the Dutch are gold medal winners. First a pair of Dutch speedskating fans had a laugh at U.S. president Donald Trump’s expense. Now they’re taking aim at American broadcaster Katie Couric after some incorrect assumptions she made about the country when it was introduced during the Opening Ceremony. As the Netherlands entered the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium during Friday’s parade of nations, Couric shared a theory on why the Dutch are so good on the oval.
  • NBC benches Olympics analyst over remarks deemed offensive to Koreans

    NBC has sidelined one of its Olympic analysts for saying that the Japanese occupation of the Korean peninsula was an important moment in South Korea's economic transformation, drawing swift backlash online. The analyst, Joshua Cooper Ramo, made the remark during NBC's prime-time telecast of Friday's opening ceremony in pointing out the presence of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe "Every Korean will tell you that Japan is a cultural and technical and economic example that has been so important to their own transformation," Ramo said. An online petition quickly circulated demanding an apology from NBC. The network apologized formally to the...

    If recent trends continue, it’ll only get worse. ... NBC* paid $963 million for the rights to air the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, a 24 percent jump over the $775 million it paid for the last Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. ... Viewership declines aren’t really surprising, as similar trends have unfolded across the TV landscape and viewers opt for on-demand and online entertainment alternatives. Even football and the Super Bowl — considered the last holdouts where advertisers could guarantee huge live audiences would be watching — are not immune.

    NBC News used three of its reporters – Cynthia McFadden, William Arkin and Kevin Monahan – on a story entitled, “Russia penetrated U.S. voter systems, top official says.” The story recounted an “exclusive interview with NBC News” by Jessica Manfra, head of cybersecurity for the Department of Homeland Security, in which Manfra said, “We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated.” More texts came to light between the two FBI agents engaged in an extramarital affair while working to undermine President Trump, including one that indicated President Obama “wants to...

    On Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today show and ABC’s Good Morning America recited identical liberal talking points as both broadcasts warned viewers that the U.S. was on the verge of looking like world’s worst “authoritarian regimes” if the Pentagon followed through on President Trump’s desire to hold a military parade in the nation’s capital. “Some unusual marching orders from President Trump to the Pentagon. He wants a massive parade to highlight the country’s military strength,” fretted Today co-host Hoda Kotb. “But as NBC’s Hans Nichols explains, that request is not sitting well with some lawmakers,” she added.

    As President Trump stepped up to podium to deliver his State of the Union address Tuesday night, the NBC News team wanted viewers to focus on one thing as they watched the speech – that Trump was “under criminal investigation” and Special Counsel Robert Mueller “hovers over the chamber.” Just moments before House Speaker Paul Ryan introduced the President, Today co-host Savannah Guthrie declared: “And let’s not forget, as we see Attorney General Sessions, this is a president who’s under criminal investigation right now for obstruction of justice with regard to the Russia investigation. So a lot going on in...

It has been claimed Kelly - who joined the network from Fox News last year on a $23 million a year deal - had insisted that she should not be forced to cover special events as well as her usual responsibilities.

    In a conveniently-timed leak and narrative-shifting moment, NBC news reports ‘sources’ have confirmed that President Trump, referring to his wife’s Clinton-sponsored failure to win state office, asked former FBI acting director McCabe: “ask your wife how it feels to be a loser.” As a reminder, in 2015 McCabe’s wife had run for state office in Virginia. She accepted nearly $500,000 in donations to her campaign from the super PAC of Clinton ally and former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe. She lost her race by just over 2,000 votes. In the past, Trump had also reportedly asked McCabe how he voted in...
