Watch Tucker Carlson and Rob Reiner Have a Passive-Aggressive Contest in Tense Russia Debate

Film director Rob Reiner has been making the media rounds this week promoting his newly launched committee to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election. And that tour included an unlikely stop Thursday: Tucker Carlson Tonight. In what was a tense standoff, Reiner and host Tucker Carlson battled over Russia — with Carlson arguing that Reiner was being hypocritical for focusing on Russia and not China, and Reiner countering by saying that China has not directly meddled in U.S. elections. The chat amounted to a passive-aggressive contest between the two — a contest which would seem to be right up Carlson’s alley. The most notable exchange came at approximately the five-minute mark.
Carlson: You guys in Hollywood sell your movies in China. You bow to the imperatives of their propaganda and censorship office. You change your movies to suit them. And yet no one says we are at war Continue reading "Watch Tucker Carlson and Rob Reiner Have a Passive-Aggressive Contest in Tense Russia Debate"

Hulk Hogan Opens Up About Gawker Suit: ‘It Was Much Bigger Than Me’

Hulk Hogan is opening up about his lawsuit against Gawker. In an interview set to air this weekend on OBJECTified, hosted by TMZ’s Harvey Levin, the wrestling legend acknowledged that his legal victory over the now-shuttered website — which settled with him for more than $31 million — will be a defining part of his legacy. “It was much bigger than me or much bigger than my career,” Hogan said. “This was something that and you know, I’ve said it before and I’m not joking around.” In a portion of the interview not included in the footage above, Levin asked Hogan about his 2010 admission that he nearly committed suicide by putting a gun in his mouth. “I got to a point where everything kind of hit me at the same time,” Hogan said. “The divorce, my whole world Continue reading "Hulk Hogan Opens Up About Gawker Suit: ‘It Was Much Bigger Than Me’"

Curt Schilling Continues Crusade Against ESPN: ‘Most Racist People in Sports Are at the Station’

Fired ESPN analyst Curt Schilling claims his former network is a hotbed of racism in the sports world. While appearing on Fox & Friends, Schilling chimed in on the recent ESPN controversy in which SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill called President Donald Trump a white supremacist on Twitter — an issue he feels especially passionate about as he was fired from the network for making controversial right-wing comments. After Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt made a comparison between Hill’s political comments and Schilling’s, implying that the conservative got fired for doing it while the liberal did not, the former Red Sox pitcher responded:
“Her calling [Trump] a racist is not a surprise. Disney and ESPN have stopped giving all pretense of objectivity Continue reading "Curt Schilling Continues Crusade Against ESPN: ‘Most Racist People in Sports Are at the Station’"

Curt Schilling: Conservatives at ESPN ‘Were Afraid to Be Found Out’

Politics and ESPN has been a hot topic since SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill‘s tweet last week in which she called President Donald Trump a white supremacist. Curt Schilling has not been shy about weighing in on the issue since. The former Red Sox pitcher and current Breitbart host, though, claims that politics — at least conservative politics — were taboo while he was working at the Worldwide Leader. Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight Wednesday, the former ESPN analyst — who was fired after sharing an anti-transgender post on Facebook — said he was part of a secret society of sorts at the network. “We were like one of those secret Hogwarts clubs in ESPN,” Schilling said. “Behind-the-scenes, people would walk up to me — in my ear and say, ‘Listen, I’m with you on your politics.’ You were afraid to be found out.” Schilling went on to Continue reading "Curt Schilling: Conservatives at ESPN ‘Were Afraid to Be Found Out’"

Fox’s Judge Napolitano Now Claiming Trump Wiretapping Accusation: ‘Appears to be Absolutely True’

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano made the claim this morning that President Donald Trump’s “wiretapping” allegations against President Barack Obama’s White House appear “to be absolutely true” in light of the recent CNN report on the issue. He made the claim while appearing with Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo alongside a roundtable on the show Mornings with Maria — where another guest called the alleged wiretapping “a witch hunt,” a term Trump often uses himself. Napolitano also added that if the wiretap had any political purposes relating to the 2016 election everyone involved should be indicted, including Obama. Napolitano’s vindication of Trump’s wiretap claims went as follows:
“[Trump’s] argument that he was being wiretapped, which was so loudly mocked and ridiculed, now appears to be absolutely true. It was a wiretap for bona fide criminal investigatory purposes… [or] the wiretap was a conduit to get to Hillary Clinton Continue reading "Fox’s Judge Napolitano Now Claiming Trump Wiretapping Accusation: ‘Appears to be Absolutely True’"

Hannity Slams Media, Says Manafort Story Vindicates Trump: You’ve ‘Been Exposed For The Frauds You Are!’

On Tuesday night, Sean Hannity went after the “Destroy Trump” media for “being caught in a massive lie” and “misleading” the American people, insisting President Trump was right that the Obama administration “wiretapped” Trump Tower after the bombshell report was released that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was wiretapped before and after the 2016 election. “So for all of you lazy, overpaid, ideological liberal mainstream media people out there, you have now been exposed for the frauds you are yet again!” Hannity exclaimed. “And as we’ve been saying, the biased press is not interested in reporting the truth and fact. The only care about spearing and delegitimizing President Trump in this is more evidence.” The Fox News host then played a montage of clips featuring CNN’s Jake Tapper and Brian Stelter, ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos and MSNBC’s Joy Reid that dismissed Trump’s claim. “The conspiracy theory Continue reading "Hannity Slams Media, Says Manafort Story Vindicates Trump: You’ve ‘Been Exposed For The Frauds You Are!’"
