Hannity Fires Back at Koppel Over ‘Fake Edited News’: He ‘Cut Out My Many Examples of Media Bias’

hannity-1 You may have already heard about the back-and-forth between Ted Koppel and Sean Hannity on CBS Sunday Morning today on the issue of America’s vast political divide. Koppel told Hannity that he thinks he’s bad for America because he’s “attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts.” CBS, of course, had to edit down the lengthy interview for the broadcast, though the part featuring Hannity’s interview ends with Koppel making that aforementioned remark and does not include Hannity’s rebuttal. So Hannity took to Twitter to slam the “fake ‘edited’ news,” saying he talked a lot about liberal media bias and calling on CBS to release the full interview:

Mulvaney on Health Care Fight: Washington Is ‘More Broken’ Than Trump Thought

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press today that the failure of the Republican Congress to pass the American Health Care Act shows “Washington was a lot more broken than President Trump thought that it was.” He said “the powers that be in Washington” won the day, saying that it wasn’t just the Freedom Caucus but moderates that opposed the bill too. Mulvaney concluded, “This place was a lot more rotten than we thought that it was, and that I thought it was, because I’ve been here for six years. I know the Freedom Caucus. I helped found it. I never thought it would come to this.” Watch above, via NBC. [image via screengrab] — — Follow Josh Feldman on Twitter: @feldmaniac

Report: Trump Surrogate Boris Epshteyn Is Stepping Down From White House Role

boris-epstein Reports are indicating that Boris Epshteyn is about to step down from his position as a media surrogate and communications director for President Trump. Epshteyn was a frequent stand-in for Trump throughout the 2016 election, and has continued to defend the president as a member of the new administration. However, White House officials have told Politico that “we are exploring opportunities within the administration,” and Epshteyn will be withdrawing from his high-profile position. Epshteyn is known for having a boisterous TV persona that has been described as “combative” by the media on occasions. He once pled guilty to assaulting a man at an Arizona bar, and Politico described how the Trump surrogate was known for generating friction between the campaign and media staff.

Report: Tomi Lahren Has Been ‘Banned Permanently’ from TheBlaze

tomi-lahren-1 Last week Tomi Lahren‘s TheBlaze show was suspended, and now there’s a report out she may be out at the network permanently. New York Post‘s Page Six reports that Lahren has been “banned permanently,” and one insider close to Glenn Beck said, “Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites.” If you haven’t already heard, Lahren recently revealed on The View that she’s pro-choice because it would be hypocritical for her to not feel that way when she’s a proponent of limited government. Beck publicly called out Lahren but did not say whether she was out at TheBlaze. [image via screengrab] — — Follow Josh Feldman on Twitter: @feldmaniac
