came to Sean Hannity
‘s defense this afternoon following a CNN appearance from Media Matters president Angelo Carusone

Ever since the Harvey Weinstein
scandal broke, countless men have been accused of sexual misconduct that ranges from verbal harassment, assault, rape, and child molestation. It’s common knowledge that such abuse isn’t just a problem in Hollywood but in our society as a whole. And in recent days, it’s been made clear that it’s a problem in politics.
For the past two weeks, we’ve heard several allegations made against GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore
. Multiple women have accused him of making sexual advances when they were teenagers and he was in his 3os. One even accused him of attempted rape.
On Thursday morning, Sen. Al Franken
(D-MN) was accused of groping and forcibly kissing a woman in 2006. There’s an argument to be made that if Congress has been vocal about blocking and expelling a potential senator for years-old allegations that the same standard should be applied to a Continue reading "We Have the Right to Know Who’s Involved in Congress’s $15M Sexual Harassment Cover-Up"
On today’s broadcast of CNN’s
, host Brian Stelter
devoted a segment to the notion of negative partisanship and how it colors much of today’s news media coverage. After it was highlighted that Fox News has been obsessed with Hillary Clinton
despite her losing the election a year ago, Stelter pressed Baltimore Sun
media critic David Zurawik
if one ideological side was more responsible than the other.
“Is it fair to say, we do have a partisan media in this country, is it fair to say this is a problem on the left, but more of a problem on the right?” Stelter asked.
“I think it’s absolutely more of a problem on the right,” Zurawik exclaimed, pointing out that he noticed Fox News’ Laura Ingraham
using the Roy Moore scandal
to instead go after Democrats over Bill Clinton

, disgraced talk show host and advocate for doing things live
, is back in the news, as a curious clause was discovered in the former Fox News anchor’s employment contract.
The contract, filed with 21st Century Fox Inc., explicitly protected
the alleged sexual harasser of, well, sexually harassing.
, an independent Fox director, told U.K.’s Competition & Markets Authority that the contract kept O’Reilly on the network
until such time that an allegation of wrongdoing could be proven in court.
Nesser’s testimony came to light amid
the $15.3 billion offer from Fox to buy British network Sky News, as regulators are measuring the network for adherence to U.K. broadcast standards, among other things.
Detractors paint the clause as being emblematic of a larger problem plaguing the news and opinion network.

Tucker Carlson Tonight, host Tucker Carlson said that he’d been told by “highly informed sources” that CNN management had given orders to its on-air talent to trash former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile. As Tucker stated, “anchors and producers were vocally offended by her attacks on their friends, the Clintons.” Thus, as Carlson reported it, they made efforts to undermine Brazile’s credibility.
After Carlson’s segment, the man Tucker replaced in the 8 PM slot took to Twitter to amplify Tucker’s report:
This morning, CNN anchor Jake Tapper pushed back against those claims, stating that he has not been given orders from CNN management on how to cover Brazile.
