On the night of Alabama’s special election, Jake Tapper dryly reviewed GOP candidate Roy Moore campaign’s bizarre antics — including, but not limited to, his wife deflecting antisemitism accusations by saying they have a “Jew” attorney and granting an interview to a 12-year-old girl, despite his status as an alleged child molester. The Lead host played a clip of Kayla Moore saying, “Fake news would tell you that we don’t care for Jews. I tell you all this because I’ve seen it all and I just want to set the record straight while they’re all here.” “That’s quite the bumper-sticker there,” responded Tapper. As for the numerous allegations of predatory behavior and sexual misconduct that have been leveled against Moore, Tapper mocked the campaign for their choice of optics when it came to allowing a 12-year-old female Moore-supporter to pitch a softball interview to the former Alabama Supreme Court justice.

Former Governor of Minnesota Tim Pawlenty appeared on CNN’s New Day the morning of the Alabama Senate race, and the Republican did not mince words when asked about GOP nominee Roy Moore. New Day’s Chris Cuomo pointed out that Pawlenty is not from Alabama, but asked that if he were, would he vote for Moore — the former judge whose candidacy has been dogged by a number of allegations of sexual assault, harassment and all-around creepiness. “I don’t even think it’s a close call,” Pawlenty said. “This is a credibly accused serial child molester, and I don’t think that’s even a close call, no.” Cuomo noted that President Donald Trump has thrown his full endorsement behind Moore, dismissing the allegations and arguing that a Republican is needed in the Senate. “I’d have the right, as others have done, to write in another Republican candidate,” Pawlenty replied. “And that may Continue reading "Fmr GOP Gov Pawlenty: Don’t Put ‘Credibly Accused Serial Child Molester’ Roy Moore in Senate"
The Intercept‘s Glenn Greenwald spoke bluntly about the systemic flaws of the mainstream media and was critical of Fox News… while appearing on Fox News. On Monday night, Laura Ingraham invited Greenwald on to discuss his column blasting CNN for its botched reporting and their lack of handling its inaccurate report. He pointed out the “disturbing” long line of Trump/Russia stories that all feed the narrative that collusion took place but that they “completely fall apart.” Greenwald also slammed CBS and MSNBC, both who had independently “confirmed” the false report by multiple sources. But then he also invoked Fox News’ journalistic wrongdoings. “If it wasn’t deliberate, they have the obligation to say how it happened. Instead, what they did was that they brought a CNN employee Carl Bernstein, and David Frum, who spent two days defending CNN, on to pretend they were willing to talk about Continue reading "Glenn Greenwald Calls Out The ‘Disinformation’ From Fox News… on Fox News"
On Monday night, Laura Ingraham blasted many in the mainstream media for recent coverage of President Trump and took a shot at a former Fox News host. The Fox News host began her monologue by calling out CNN’s “disgraceful reporting” on Donald Trump Jr.‘s contacts with WikiLeaks during the election. She believed it was a “watershed moment” that exposed the “establishment media’s reckless coverage” of alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. She then mocked Reliable Sources‘ “shoeless” host Brian Stelter for “refusing” to explain how his network botched their report and instead “trotted out” the “Watergate dinosaur” Carl Bernstein and “perpetual Trump critic” David Frum to attack the president. “The media are destroying their credibility, whatever’s left of it, by allowing politics to dominate editorial decisions and color their reporting,” Ingraham said. “This is no way of building public confidence!” She ripped ABC News’ Continue reading "Laura Ingraham Hits Former Fox News Host Megyn Kelly: ‘So Much For Her Staying Out of Politics’"
Sean Hannity tore into the “liberal, mainstream, destroy-Trump media” once again on Monday night, and he particularly directed his ire towards CNN senior media correspondent and favorite recurring enemy Brian Stelter. CNN recently botched a major story about Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks, so naturally, Hannity was completely geared up to slam the network and put them on blast for spreading “fake news.” As the Fox host pummeled CNN and network chief Jeff Zucker, he turned his attention to “stenographer Humpty Dumpty Brian Stelter,” who addressed the journalistic failure on his show yesterday. “Instead of profusely apologizing like he should have, Humpty Dumpty tried to use his network’s complete and utter fake news failure to attack President Trump,” said Hannity. “He is a bitter partisan. It’s even pathetic by fake CNN standards.” As it were, Stelter was following along with Hannity’s monologue tonight, and judging by the

The magazine said it “severed ties” with Mr. Lizza, its Washington correspondent, over “improper sexual conduct.” He denied that charge.
CNN’s Angela Rye went off on Ed Martin this morning for his defense of past comments made by Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. The statement in particular getting a lot of attention was a reported comment of Moore saying, in response to a question about the last time America was great, “I think it was great at the time when families were united — even though we had slavery — they cared for one another…. Our families were strong, our country had a direction.” Rye brought up that comment during a panel segment on the crazier things Moore has said and asked Martin what he meant by it. Martin said the comment is being taken out of context. He also said, really sending the segment off the rails, Moore’s “getting elected to the Senate. When he gets to the Senate, he’s gonna have to vote on things. Slavery’s Continue reading "CNN Panel on Roy Moore Goes Off the Rails: ‘Slavery’s Not Gonna Be Voted on in the Senate!’"
