Trump Goes On Offense Against Cruz: ‘Everything I Say, He Agrees with Me’

trumpDonald Trump went after Ted Cruz during a campaign stop in Iowa tonight, needling him for agreeing with him on everything and making an odd remark about Cruz and Cuba. Cruz has not attacked Trump on the campaign trail, but recently-released audio features Cruz privately criticizing Trump and Ben Carson. But rather than sticking by his words, Cruz tweeted that he won’t play the media’s game of attacking a fellow Republican rival (even though he has had zero problems attacking his other Republican rivals). And that tweet from Cruz came after Trump tweeted up a storm attacking Cruz for trashing him behind closed doors. Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher wrote yesterday Cruz is refusing to attack Trump publicly because he’s afraid. Well, either way, Trump went on the attack tonight anyway. Trump informed the Iowa audience that Cruz opposes ethanol because of his ties to big oil. And not only that, but Continue reading "Trump Goes On Offense Against Cruz: ‘Everything I Say, He Agrees with Me’"

Bernie Sanders Releases Statement Blasting Campaign’s ‘Blackout’ in Corporate Media

bernie sandersThe Bernie Sanders campaign released a statement earlier tonight targeting the “corporate” media for not giving Sanders the coverage he deserves. A recent study on media coverage of all the candidates found that not only is it dominated by Donald Trump, but he himself is getting far more coverage than Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Martin O’Malley combined. The study focuses on campaign coverage from the major nightly newscasts, and during this entire election season (up to the end of November), Trump has gotten 234 minutes on the nightly news, Clinton has gotten 113 minutes, and Sanders has only gotten 10 minutes. That led the Sanders campaign to release a statement titled “Why the Bernie Blackout on Corporate Network News?” Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver said, “The corporately-owned may not like Bernie’s anti-establishment views but for the sake of American democracy they must allow for a fair debate Continue reading "Bernie Sanders Releases Statement Blasting Campaign’s ‘Blackout’ in Corporate Media"

Campbell Brown Implores TV News to #TurnOffTrump for One Week

brownFormer TV reporter Campbell Brown — who worked as an anchor on NBC before hosting her own CNN news program — urged her former network colleagues to #TurnOffTrump “for one week,” penning an open letter for Politico imploring media outlets to “stop being complicit in promoting his hateful and harmful demagoguery.” Brown notes TV news’ “obsession” with the presidential candidate, acknowledging that Donald Trump is “candy for the cameras.” But she also laments the need for TV networks to ensure “no one ever looks away”:
It feels slightly less icky enabling him when you tussle with him, point out his lies and call out his megalomania, but we all know this is about the bottom line. He is damn good for business. As the ratings go up, so does advertising revenue. The cable and network bosses have never been so happy.
Brown argues that “oversaturation is now doing real damage to our democracy,” Continue reading "Campbell Brown Implores TV News to #TurnOffTrump for One Week"

BuzzFeed Trolls Trump With American Nazi Party Interview About Proposed Muslim Ban

PicMonkey Collage - TrumpOkay guys, this is getting pretty ridiculous. BuzzFeed News political reporter Andrew Kaczynski decided to take all those jokes about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump being “the new furor” even further by interviewing Rocky Suhayda, chairman of the American Nazi Party. “Unless Trump plans on ruling by Presidential Decree, I don’t see how he would implement ANY of his ‘plans,’ the rest of the sold out ‘mainstream’ political whores would block his every move,” Suhayda told Kaczynski via email. “I seriously doubt if he even believes all what he says, but its nice to have someone like him saying it.” There’s more, of course, and most of what Suhayda had to say regarding Trump’s proposed ban had very little to do with Trump’s proposal. “Look, this phrase ‘muslims’ is simply a PC code word to cover the reality of all these THIRD WORLD peoples invading OUR country,” he said. “Don’t Continue reading "BuzzFeed Trolls Trump With American Nazi Party Interview About Proposed Muslim Ban"

Texas Imam Forced to Resign After Defending Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban

ImamA Texas imam was forced to resign Friday after he publicly defended Donald Trump‘s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country. “I certainly see it to be wise; that the US government should stop temporarily accepting any new Muslim immigrants (refugees and non refugees) into the United States,” Nidal Alsayyed said in a statement to local CBS affiliate KFDM Monday. “But my justification to that is based on the fact that we can hardly distinguish who is Muslim and who is not! Islam is not about an ID card or last name!” “Trump is not against American Muslims; He is against any new Muslim immigrants (refugees and non-refugees)! There is a big difference here! We cannot be emotional,”  Alsayyed argued.
The Beaumont, Texas native’s comments went viral when they were picked up by Breitbart and Continue reading "Texas Imam Forced to Resign After Defending Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban"
