Fox News Staffers 'Disgusted' At Network's Promotion Of Seth Rich Conspiracy Theory


By CNN, May 22, 2017

"I'm disgusted by it," one Fox News employee told CNN.

Rich was shot to death last July in the streets of Washington, DC. The Metropolitan Police Department continues to investigate the murder and police say there is evidence to suggest Rich was the victim of a botched robbery.

But for months, right-wing media outlets have floated unproven theories that Rich was the person who provided Wikileaks with thousands of internal DNC emails, and suggested his death was retribution for the supposed leak. No real evidence has been provided to support such claims.

Cable News Ratings Upheaval: Maddow and Cooper Dominate, Fox Slips With Rare Week at No. 3


By Hollywood Reporter, May 22, 2017

There hasn't been a horse race like this in cable news in quite some time ... if ever.

A week of humbling headlines for the embattled Trump administration proved to be ratings paydirt for CNN and MSNBC, each of which scored significant victories in different dayparts. Simultaneously, Fox News Channel posted its first five-day streak at No. 3 in primetime since 2000.

Both CNN and MSNBC nabbed big wins among adults 25-54, with CNN winning total day in the key demo for the workweek and MSNBC scoring in primetime. Though it was a tight race between 8 and 11 p.m. throughout the week, FNC ranked below the other two for the first time in almost 17 years.

SHE SHALL PERSIST: Here's How Hillary Clinton Will Become President In 2017


By Free Beacon, May 22, 2017

Donald Trump's impeachment is imminent, and the majority of his cabinet is implicated in his treason. Hillary Clinton was supposed to be our president in 2017. It was her turn. She won the popular vote, but lost the rigged election because of Russia. Fortunately, there's a good chance that Hillary will be sworn in as president before the end of the year.

Straightforward from here:

House Judiciary Committee approves articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.

Melissa Francis’ Journey From Child Star To News Anchor


By NY Post, May 15, 2017

To the untrained eye, Melissa Francis’ career seems nothing short of miraculous. She is, after all, one of the few to successfully survive being a child star — as Cassandra Cooper Ingalls on the TV series “Little House on the Prairie” — only to wind up back on the small screen as a news anchor for Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Network.

But that doesn’t mean Francis hasn’t experienced her fair share of failures along the way.

6 Ways Millennials Are Changing Charitable Giving


By Business Connect World, May 02, 2017

Many people think of Millennials as self-centered, selfie-snapping, uber-texting, uber-riding, narcissists. Even some Millennials share this opinion. Johnny Oleksinski, a Millennial himself, wrote in the New York Post:

This is my number one rule: Do whatever millennials don’t. Definite no-nos include quitting a job or relationship the moment my mood drops from ecstatic to merely content; expecting the world to kowtow to my every childish whim; and assuming that I am always the most fascinating person in the room, hell, the zip code.

Cruz, Paul Want To Go ‘Nuclear’ On Obamacare Repeal


By Politico, May 16, 2017

Conservative GOP Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are pushing to test the limits of how much of Obamacare can be repealed under Senate rules, setting up a potential “nuclear” showdown.

The firebrands want to overturn long-standing precedent for what can be done under reconciliation, the fast-track budget process the GOP is using to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. They argue Republicans are allowing stale Senate norms to tie their hands and are forfeiting a chance to completely abolish the law.

How Companies Lie About Earnings To Meet Wall Street Expectations


By NY Post, May 23, 2017

Everyone knows by now that companies can — and do — manipulate their per-share earnings to meet Wall Street expectations.

But I’ve always worked on the assumption that corporate revenues were pure numbers — without much manipulation going on there.

Al Sharpton Explains Why Hillary Clinton lost to Trump — Surprisingly, His Explanation Makes Sense


By The Blaze, May 23, 2017

More than six months after Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election, people are still explaining why she lost. Political commentator Al Sharpton is the latest to give it a go.

Sharpton explained in a recent podcast with BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith that Clinton lost to Trump because she took her political base for “granted” and didn’t work for the votes of grassroots progressives who awarded Barack Obama two successful presidential contests.

CAIR Ups The Ante On Its Shameful Smear Campaign


By Investigative Project, May 23, 2017

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a news release last week touting an Air Force decision to review courses on prison radicalization taught by Patrick Dunleavy, an Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) fellow.

"We welcome this review and hope it results in our military personnel receiving training based on balanced and accurate information, not on personal or political agendas," said CAIR-Florida Communications Director Wilfredo A. Ruiz.

DeVos: School Choice Should Expand, But Not From Washington D.C.


By USA Today, May 23, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS — Rather than reveal President Trump's national education proposal as initial reports suggested on Monday, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos — addressing the American Federation for Children in Indianapolis — spoke adamantly about how education shouldn't be run from Washington, D.C.

"The President is proposing the most ambitious expansion of education choice in our nation’s history," she said during the political action committee's conference. "... If a state doesn’t want to participate, that would be a terrible mistake on their part. They will be hurting the children and families who can least afford it."

FLASHBACK: Ariana Grande Licks Donut, Says ‘I Hate America,’ Cancels MLB All-Star Performance


By Mediaite, July 08, 2015

Head in the clouds, got no weight on her shoulders. She should be wiser and realize that she’s got one more problem with everyone.

Cringe-worthy lede aside, Ariana Grande has a problem: TMZ obtained surveillance footage of the pop singer getting a little touchy-feely with her new boyfriend in a Lake Elsinore, Calif., donut shop. Their tongue action eventually involved daring each other to lick powdered donuts on the counter while staff weren’t looking.

Rumors of Fox News Death Greatly Exaggerated: Ratings Still Strong for May


By Mediaite, May 23, 2017

Fox News certainly finds itself in a situation of flux in the wake of Bill O’Reilly‘s departure and adjustments to its prime time line-up, but the network is far from being out for the count.

The cable news outlet slid to third in the 25-54 age demographic during a recent period of five days, its worst showing since June 2000. During the first two weeks of May 2017, however, Fox News led its competitors at CNN and MSNBC in key areas.

By The Hill, May 23, 2017

The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget seeking $1.5 trillion in nondefense discretionary cuts and $1.4 trillion in Medicaid cuts over the course of a decade, while adding nearly half a trillion dollars to defense spending.

The plan, titled “A New Foundation for American Greatness,” would dramatically reshape federal spending, cutting anti-poverty and safety net programs, but leaving Medicare and the retirement portion of Social Security untouched.

What Trump and Philippine Head Duterte Said Privately About the North Korean Nuclear Threat


By The Intercept, May 23, 2017

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP repeatedly addressed the possibility of a U.S. nuclear attack on North Korea in a private call last month with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, according to a transcript of the call obtained by The Intercept.

“We can’t let a madman with nuclear weapons let on the loose like that. We have a lot of firepower, more than he has times 20, but we don’t want to use it,” Trump told Duterte. (In fact, the U.S. has 6,800 nuclear warheads and North Korea is thought to have about 10.) “You will be in good shape,” he added.

By Circa, May 24, 2017
