Fox News segment sways unstable Donald Trump into opposing his own approved surveillance program

Donald Trump is a damn fool and he is engaged in a horrifying feedback loop with Fox News. Matthew Gertz of Media Matters for America has been tracking Donald Trump’s tweets and documenting the topics of Fox News at the same time. The obvious trend is...

This is what Fox News’ Tucker Carlson covered tonight on his show. Seriously.

While the rest of the media world discussed the fact that the president of the United States’ private attorney was raided by the FBI, this is what Fox “News” “journalist” Tucker Carlson focused on this evening: The responses have been...

Creeping Fascism in Plain Sight: WH Suspends Troublesome Reporter 30 Days.

When one aspires to a fascist or fascist-like leadership position, the first thing one does is wrestle control of the media. This is certainly not genius insight, indeed I believe it is likely taught in high school. That is why it is critical that we all pay attention when this particular White House, and this particular president, make a clear move against the First Amendment, in an attempt to control the press. Could anything be more obvious? Brian Karem, the chief White House correspondent for Playboy magazine, said Friday that his press pass is being suspended for 30 days in what he called an “anti-First Amendment move.” Damn right. Unless, you started a fight or something. Except, he did not, and the White House knows this all too well. The suspension will begin Monday, Karem said. In an interview late Friday, he said the White House told him the suspension was related to his actions in the Rose Garden nearly a month ago, where he infamously sparred with former White House aide Sebastian Gorka. The White House wrote that Karem “failed to abide by basic norms of decorum and order” on July 11, Karem said. The letter further suggested that Karem had been rude to Gorka — “a guest of the president.” Anyone who follows the news much has seen that clip, and the most charitable view (to the White House’s position) would be to say that Karem did not handle the “attack initiated by the President’s guest” perfectly. I mean that, by the way. He could have handled it better, and he could have handled it much, much, worse – but did not. He was flat ambushed by Gorka, an oily fascist himself. So, what is this really about? Oh, perhaps it is because Karem has been a thorn in both Sarah Huckabee-Sanders’ side and Trump’s hide, for quite some time. Perhaps you recall him asking Sarah Huck if she did not have any empathy, “as a parent,” for the kids separated at the border? Anyone who doesn’t have empathy for kids separated from parents, even parents who DO commit crimes, anyone without empathy for the innocent kids, is without any redemption and not fit to work in the White House. She could have answered the question easily: “Of course I do. However, there are several moving parts to this and we are attempting to stop other parents from risking their children’s lives in the journey from Central America, we do not want innocent children’s lives lost due to  …” Or even: “My private feelings about any policy are not relevant to the president’s decisions. Thus I will not ever comment upon my personal feelings.” See? I do not believe a single word of either answer for a second, however they are the types of answers that a press secretary for the White House ought to be able to make off the cuff, I sure did. But this White House doesn’t work that way. They take pride in inflicting pain without empathy. They want their voters, their base, to know it, wink wink. Ironically, another clear sign of fascism is a total denial of empathy for the perceived “enemy.” They learn that in high school, too, all too well. Regardless, the White House knows that Gorka went after that guy. Indeed, Gorka […]

Press Will NO Longer Cover Trump “Rallies”?

I confess to being highly conflicted on two points in this incredibly important subject. For one, I have absolutely no tolerance for the instinctive, self-satisfied liberal blogger need to snobbishly look down upon “the media” (never defined) as a corporate tool responsible for Trump, and Republicanism. Sorry, the second I see that crap on DailyKos […]

Bombshell: Shep Smith Out At Fox News, The Day After Barr Met With Murdoch...

Donald Trump has been saying for some time that the United States should launch it’s own cable TV network to compete with CNN and which would “tell the truth.” Last week Shepard Smith drew a reprimand for being critical of Tucker Carlson. Then, Thursday William Barr went to meet with Rupert Murdoch. Friday was Smith’s last day at Fox, and Smith happened to be one of the few voices at Fox that was willing to oppose Trump by broadcasting actual facts and not devoting himself to fawning admiration — which is apparently what is demanded and there is no room for dissent. Announcement from Fox News: Shepard Smith is stepping down from his role as chief news anchor. This afternoon's show was his last. Fissures between news and opinion at Fox News are for real. — ErikWemple (@ErikWemple) October 11, 2019 This is a breaking story, which will be updated, but this should make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. There is no way that this development can be viewed in a positive light. Trump demanded loyalty from Fox News, he bristled and screamed when he didn’t get it, and now it looks like William Barr is not only his attack dog, he’s also his PR man, and he convinced Rupert Murdoch to see things Trump’s way. That’s only speculation, but it’s a reasonable theory that fits the facts. Roger Ailes is down in Hell laughing right now. UPDATE: 2:05 p.m. PDT — As anybody who has witnessed terminations in corporate America knows, it is a sign of hostility and disgrace when an employee is walked out of the building by security. Such was the treatment that longtime Fox News anchor Shepard Smith received by the network on Friday. Sources directly familiar tell me many Fox News and Fox Business staffers were "shocked" when Shep Smith announced his departure on @foxnews, some were visibly upset. He was escorted out by security, per sources. Fox plans to have a set of rotating anchors host his time slot. https://t.co/FfW2QUNaoD — Jo Ling Kent (@jolingkent) October 11, 2019 Any illusions that this was a planned in advance and mutually agreed upon, amicable, split have totally been shattered — but you already knew that, right? Poor Shep Smith, he was adjudicated an Enemy of the People and summarily dealt with. Who’s next, Chris Wallace? UPDATE 2X October 12, 2019, 4:40 p.m. PDT: Friends, a Fox publicist sent me the following email this afternoon. I verified her identity and I verified that Jo Ling Kent, the NBC journalist who reported that Smith had been escorted from the building by security, had deleted the tweet and printed a retraction. This is legit. Hi Ursula- Ali from FOX News here- reaching out in regards to your police below. Jo Ling Kent went on to delete her tweet that included the report of Smith being escorted out of the building, given it was false. Can you please update your piece to note that? https://politizoom.com/2019/10/11/bombshell-shep-smith-out-at-fox-news-the-day-after-barr-met-with-murdoch-hello-state-television/ Also- Shepard released a statement denying that his departure was due to Murdoch’s meeting with Barr. See here. New statement from Shep Smith’s spokesman: “The decision to leave was Shep’s and his alone – he will be taking an extended period of time off to be with his family. Following […]

Trump knew about Michael Cohen’s grift. How do I know? Because he TOLD us.

Take a little stroll with me for a moment down memory lane. You won’t need a backpack, we’re not going that far, only a couple of weeks. But I think you’ll find it worth the trip. Flash back just a few short weeks ago. Michael Cohen just had his office, home, his temporary residence hotel […]
