Fox News Had The Stormy Daniels Story Before WSJ, and They Killed It Because...

Diana Falzone covered the entertainment beat at Fox. She obtained proof in 2016 that Trump had engaged in a sexual relationship with Stormy Daniels in 2006. Falzone did a lot of work on the story, but Fox wouldn’t run it. Falzone’s story kept getting bounced from one editor to the next until finally Ken LaCorte, head of the Fox News division said, “Good reporting, kiddo. But Rupert wants Donald Trump to win. So just let it go.” Of course LaCorte denies saying this, but one of Falzone’s colleagues confirms hearing about the incident at the time. In any event, the Stormy Daniels bombshell was dead at Fox and a year after Trump was in the White House the Wall Street Journal broke the story. The New Yorker After the Journal story broke, Oliver Darcy, a senior media reporter for CNN, published a piece revealing that Fox had killed a Stormy Daniels story. LaCorte, who by then had left Fox but was still being paid by the company, told Mediaite that he’d made the call without talking to superiors. The story simply hadn’t “passed muster,” he claimed, adding, “I didn’t do it to protect Donald Trump.” Nik Richie, a blogger who had broken the first story about Daniels, tweeted, “This is complete bullshit. Ken you are such a LIAR. This story got killed by @FoxNews at the highest level. I know, because I was one of your sources.” Richie told me, “Fox News was culpable. I voted for Trump, and I like Fox, but they did their own ‘catch and kill’ on the story to protect him.” He said that he’d worked closely with Falzone on the article, and that “she did her homework—she had it.” He says he warned her that Fox would never run it, but “when they killed it she was devastated.” Richie believes that the story “would have swayed the election.” Now, there’s this newest development. Falzone was demoted at Fox, left, and when she did, had to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement. Now she wants out of the NDA, so that she can talk about Stormy Daniels and how Fox killed the story.   New: Fox reporter Diana Falzone's lawyer Nancy Erica Smith has issued a statement demanding that Fox release her from her NDA so she can talk about getting the Stormy Daniels story before the 2016 election. — Jane Mayer (@JaneMayerNYer) March 9, 2019 Nancy Erica Smith statement:1. In light of the false and defamatory statements being made by Fox News’ agent Ken LaCorte and Fox News employee Howard Kurtz, Diana Falzone asks Fox News, and specifically Rupert Murdoch, to release her from her non-disclosure agreement on the — Jane Mayer (@JaneMayerNYer) March 9, 2019 2. (statement from Falzone lawyer continued)topic of her reporting in October of 2016 regarding Donald Trump paying hush money to Stormy Daniels, because the public has the right to the truth. — Jane Mayer (@JaneMayerNYer) March 9, 2019 This could become explosive. Stay tuned.

Manafort Follows The Classic ‘Everything Trump Touches Dies’ Arc, Says Rick Wilson

Former GOP strategist Rick Wilson wrote a best selling book, “Everything Trump Touches Dies” and he makes a compelling case for the fact that Paul Manafort is just one more log on the funeral pyre that is the Trump organization and Trump himself. Daily Beast: Manafort, of course, follows the inevitable Everything Trump Touches Dies arc.  In the beginning, Trump and his supporters showered Manafort with the most lavish praise as a political genius, a man of great depth, understanding, and stature. He was a legend come to aid the Trump effort, a sign of the campaign’s maturation and growing strength. Now, he’s deep into the familiar process of Trumpian unpersoning. “We hardly knew him. He only served a short time. He was a coffee boy. He was ideologically impure. He was a criminal scumbag who tricked us. He betrayed the Great Leader.” Every major player in Trump’s world experiences this treatment. […] The pattern of people caught in Trump’s moral orbit is clear; they lie, and lie again, and keep lying until they’re busted. Then they lie some more, seemingly to piss off the prosecutors. Manafort, Roger Stone, Michael Cohen, Jerome Corsi, and others kept trying to emulate their master, but they keep getting slapped. It’s a culture of cheaters, scammers, and bottom-feeding ratfuckers going up against legal forces who specialize in calling their bullshit. […] Paul Manafort is also a valuable preview of the future for people like Roger Stone. Stone has tried to play the same too-cute game with the special counsel and Judge Amy Berman Jackson. Now, the septuagenarian libertine faces his own time in the barrel. Stone won’t prosper in a place where the most dapper element of his outfit is a scratchy orange polyester jumpsuit. For those of you facing indictment, including those are you in the Trump orbit who know what’s coming but haven’t yet heard the knock of the US Marshals on your door, here’s a helpful reminder: Trump will always lie. He will always throw you under the bus. He will always shift the blame. He will always promise you everything and leave you hanging. Manafort is not finished yet. He still has to go before Judge Amy Berman Jackson and receive sentencing on his other case. She may add another ten years to his lenient four. Once the sentencing is done, then the question becomes, will Manafort appeal to Trump for a presidential pardon? Read this article in it’s entirety, because Wilson is of a mind that hell, no, Trump won’t pardon Manafort and bring heat on himself, he’ll leave Manafort high and dry. I agree with Wilson.
