  • Nets Devote 93 Minutes to Omarosa's Tell-All Despite Credibility Problems

    08/13/2018 4:03:34 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | August 13, 2018 | Kyle Drennen
    Beginning with Friday’s evening newscasts and going through Monday’s morning shows, the broadcast networks of NBC, ABC, and CBS provided an astonishing 93 minutes of air time to promoting former Trump White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s new tell-all book blasting the administration and accusing the President of being a “racist.” While hosts and correspondents repeatedly acknowledged the Apprentice star’s major credibility problems, that didn’t stop them from providing the avalanche of coverage. The total was compiled by looking at the evening and morning newscasts Friday night through Monday morning, as well as the Sunday political roundtable shows, NBC’s Meet the...

    "We have to realize that perhaps China isn't as strong as when we at first think. China is still figuring out also how to deal with this trade situation, how to ensure the stability of its domestic economy," said Curtis Chin, an Asia fellow at the Milken Institute. Speaking to CNBC's "Squawk Box," Chin also "totally" disagreed with the view that U.S. President Donald Trump's policies are backfiring. China's power may have been overrated and the U.S. economy is staying strong, meaning that U.S. President Donald Trump has an advantage in the trade war, according to one expert....

    During an interview on MSNBCs AM Joy on Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pointed fingers at NBC for undermining her chance of getting back the Speakers gavel if Democrats take the House in November. Earlier this week, NBC published an article citing 51 Democrats who would not support Pelosi for House Speaker. According to NBC: As Democrats battle to retake control of Congress in November, their leader Nancy Pelosi could also be facing a coming fight of her own. Fifty Democrats running for the House say they wont support the California lawmaker for speaker, according to an...

    News Busters ^ | 8/12/2016 | Nicholas Fondacaro
    On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville protests, white supremacists and radical leftists known as Antifa descended on the Virginia town once more to commit more violence. Late Saturday night, NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew were in the thick of it as Antifa members ganged up on them and attacked. The next morning, NBCs Sunday Today ignored the attack and suggested the media was simply heckled by their assaulters. On Twitter, Perry was documenting the protesters as they marched through the streets of college town when they started to get very aggressive with the media and...
  • NBC Releases Portion of Secretly Recorded Audio of John Kelly Firing Omarosa Manigault

    08/12/2018 3:40:46 PM PDT · by bitt · 63 replies
    Former short-term White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman is attempting to stir up interest in a new book by delivering audio that she secretly recorded in the White House situation room when she was fired by Chief of Staff John Kelly. Ms. Manigault released the audio to NBC for use in a Sunday broadcast of Meet the Press with Chuck Todd. There is a strong possibility Ms. Manigault has committed several violations of federal law with a secret electronic recording within a SCIF (Situation Room); however, any action therein would only further provide fuel for her already discredited self-promotion. The...

    Some of you need to cease the denial and accept the harsh reality that the left hates you. It’s a fact, as much as the liberal gaslight gang and the conserva-sissy weakhearts deny it. You can tell that leftists hate you by the way that leftists tell you that they hate you.Take Sarah Jeong, please – hey, the New York Times was happy to get this bitter creep onboard because of her history of virulent racism. The Times saw her hate as a plus, not a negative, an asset, not a liability. You can’t draw any other conclusion – if you...

    Monday on Comedy Centrals The Daily Show, MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell addressed how President Donald Trump treats the press as the enemy of the people. Mitchell likened Trump to Joseph Stalin, saying what the president attacking fake news is very dangerous. This is something that we first heard from Joseph Stalin. This is very dangerous. It undercuts democracy, Mitchell said. And for years and years, Ive covered the State Department where weve tried to teach and help, advocate with new democracies how to train journalists and how we do journalism.

    NBC News intelligence and national security reporter Ken Dilanian on Monday dismissed the Daily Caller as "Trump's pet media" after one of its reporters was called on at a join press conference with President Trump and the Prime Minister of Italy. What was I saying earlier about Trumps pet media. He actually called on the Daily Caller. Next up: Sputnik," Dilanian wrote on Twitter on Monday after Daily Caller White House correspondent Saagar Enjeti asked Trump about a possible government shutdown if $25 billion isn't provided by Congress for a border wall along the U.S. Southern border. Enjeti shrugged off...
  • Frasier Reboot Being Explored By Kelsey Grammer & CBS TV Studios

    Deadline ^ | July 25, 2018 | Nellie Andreeva
    Another beloved sitcom is plotting a possible return. I have learned that Frasier star and executive producer Kelsey Grammer is fielding interest to put together a new Frasier series. Unlike the slew of recent revivals of comedy series with the original cast and original creative auspices, including Will & Grace, Roseanne and Murphy Brown, I hear that Frasier is envisioned as a reboot, likely set in a new city, with the title character, played by Grammer, as a possible link to the Emmy-winning 1993 series. Psychiatrist Frasier Craine already made a cross-country move once. He was introduced on the Boston-set...
  • Trump pushed his personal agenda, not the national interest, at Putin summit

    CNBC "News" ^ | July 16, 2018 | John Harwood
    Trump faces political and legal jeopardy from the Justice Department investigation of his 2016 campaign and Russia. Against that backdrop, comments that Republican Sen. Ben Sasse called bizarre make sense: Trump spoke most emphatically in discrediting the Mueller investigation. Former CIA Director John Brennan condemned Trumps words as nothing short of treasonous. Others, in less provocative terms, joined in harsh denunciations. President Trumps stunning news conference with Vladimir Putin becomes understandable once you recognize that he was advancing his personal interests, not those of the United States. Trump faces political and legal jeopardy from the Justice Department investigation of his...
  • The Once-respected NBC News is suffering from a losing streak

    The Hill ^ | 07/10/2018 | BY JEFF MCCALL,
    NBC News was for years the network juggernaut that raked in the ratings and the cash. It was also widely respected for its journalism standards. Now, the once-respected news organization is wobbling after months of self-inflicted blunders. The missteps include personnel disasters and questionable news judgments. These preventable gaffes suggest a news hierarchy at NBC that has lost its compass, operating as a misguided corporate bureaucracy and not as a journalistic service to the nation. NBC pioneered broadcast news in the late 1920s with radio news updates from the legendary Floyd Gibbons. The network was the first to venture into...

    History is repeating itself: NBC has again cancelled Timeless, TVLine has learned. Fans, though, should not yet give up all hope for some final closure. Our sister site Deadline reports that NBC remains open to the possibility remote as it may be, given the logistics and financial imprudency of greenlighting a two-hour movie, to wrap up Season 2s tantalizing loose ends. This is a sad day for the writers, actors, crew and especially the viewers of Timeless, co-showrunner Shawn Ryan shared on Twitter Friday. We are all extremely proud of what we made and know that it was...

    First lady Melania Trump uncharacteristically waded into a fierce debate around immigration on Sunday, pushing for bipartisan cooperation to end the separation of migrant children from their parents at the border. Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform," according to a statement from her spokeswoman. "She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart. The first lady's statement stood in contrast to comments made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who...

I hope next year we can do more funnier stuff instead of a lot of political stuff this year, which we had to, Jones told TheWrap in a phone interview. There was so much stuff that was happening, there was no way that our show, with the responsibility that we have, would not to cover that stuff. It was just too important. But I do hope that next year will be a lot...
