Media Matters released chopped up bits of audio of Tucker Carlson between the years 2006-2011 of him on the radio talk show Bubba The Love Sponge, where he talked about a wide range of topics, some concerning women. Carlson’s controversial statements included calling Martha Stewart’s daughter a “cu*t” along with joking about fourteen-year-old girls sexually experimenting.

As always, these reports are littered with FAKE NEWS!

Here’s how Tucker responded on Sunday in a tweet:

Tucker Carlson isn’t like most Republicans. On Sunday, Carlson responded in a tweet.

Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago. Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: U’m on television every weeknight live for an hour. If you want to know what I think, you can watch. Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why.

— Tucker Carlson (@TuckerCarlson) March 11, 2019

Watch Tucker’s BLISTERING Monday opening Monologue below:

The same media that refuses to condemn Ilhan Omar and who also defends Democrat rapists, have started a campaign to remove Carlson from Fox News.

Check out what Ben Shapiro from the Daily Wire wrote:

This was, from the first, an obvious political hit. Media Matters, contrary to media descriptions, isn’t a “media watchdog organization.” It is a political smear factory designed to perform precisely that function against anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton. The organization was founded by professional smear artist David Brock, in conjunction with the Center for American Progress, an organization itself founded by John Podesta, the Clinton White House Chief of Staff. Hillary Clinton herself advised Brock on the creation of the organization. Mega-donor Leftist George Soros has poured money into the organization, announcing in 2010, “Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast. I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.” Media Matters had regular strategy calls with the Obama White House.

Media Matters’ sole purpose of existence is to ruin the lives of conservatives. They have a history of doing anything they can to dig up anything of conservatives which they then alter so people take them out of context. They’ve gone after Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Megyn Kelly but have defended Democrats like Joy Reid for her homophobic comments that she made years ago.

This idea of “media hit jobs” has become a growing trend during the Trump era. Media outlets are so driven by hatred that they will twist the truth to their best abilities in an effort to ruin the lives of various conservatives. Often times, these efforts are successful when the targeted conservatives are forced to retire or are pushed out.

NATIONWIDE POLL: Should Trump CUT Pensions For Former Presidents?

Historically, Republicans are very weak when it comes to defending themselves in situations such as this. They become overwhelmed by the far Left mob who pretends to be “morally outraged” and they eventually submit and say sorry.

BOOM! Whether you think Carlson’s comments were bad or not is one thing, but the comments were not nearly bad enough to remove him from Fox.

The same “mob” that is attacking Tucker Carlson had nothing to say about the anti-Semitic comments from Ilhan Omar, had nothing to say about Joy Reid’s anti-gay comments and had nothing to say when all the liberal news celebrities were getting busted for sexual assault. The list goes on. But Carlson’s words taken out of context “morally outrage” them apparently. What a joke!

It’s nice to see Carlson standing his ground. Republicans for the most part, (besides President Trump) are weak when it comes to standing up to the far Left mob. They become so scared and overwhelmed by the liberal “mob” that they end up apologizing even thought the Left doesn’t want an apology. They want a resignation. Why should Carlson apologize for something that the Left wouldn’t apologize for if the roles were switched?

This weekend, Media Matters released a compendium of old Tucker Carlson quotes from the period 2006 to 2011 – a period during which Carlson routinely called into the shock-jock show Bubba The Love Sponge. Carlson, among other things, called Martha Stewart’s daughter a “c***,” joked about fourteen-year-old girls sexually experimenting, and defended rape facilitator Warren Jeffs. It’s not good material. It also appeared on a show called Bubba The Love Sponge. A decade ago.

This was, from the first, an obvious political hit. Media Matters, contrary to media descriptions, isn’t a “media watchdog organization.” It is a political smear factory designed to perform precisely that function against anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton. The organization was founded by professional smear artist David Brock, in conjunction with the Center for American Progress, an organization itself founded by John Podesta, the Clinton White House Chief of Staff. Hillary Clinton herself advised Brock on the creation of the organization. Mega-donor Leftist George Soros has poured money into the organization, announcing in 2010, “Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast. I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.” Media Matters had regular strategy calls with the Obama White House.

For years, Media Matters has operated as an aggressive wing of Clintonworld, going so far as to suggest hiring private investigators to dig up dirt on Fox News hosts. Media Matters consistently attempts to tear down conservative hosts by either ripping them out of context or by digging up old Bad Things™, then astroturfing public pressure against advertisers. In reality, no real grassroots pressure exists in the vast majority of cases; the data show that secondary boycotts actually don’t materialize. But Media Matters simply contacts its list of activists, then has them contact advertisers, saying that they’ll stop using a product if that advertiser doesn’t pull its advertising. A few tweets or well-placed phone calls can knock an advertiser off a show. This last tactic, the launching of secondary boycotts, has been successfully used against advertisers across a broad range of conservative programming; advertisers are, understandably, risk averse, and so take any sign of discontent as a rationale for pulling their money. This leads, eventually, to the complete abandonment of advertisers support on political shows – at least from the right.

The tactic works across the aisle. My business partner, Jeremy Boreing, and I, launched a direct counter to Media Matters to achieve a sort of mutually assured destruction with Truth Revolt. It worked. We helped take Martin Bashir and Alec Baldwin off of MSNBC. It's not difficult. A motivated group of politically-oriented people can remove the advertiser base of nearly any show.

We openly stated our goals at the time – and we acknowledged that we wanted to end this sort of weaponization of astroturfed boycotts. And I’ve consistently taken the position that digging up Bad Things™ is generally bad faith and immoral. Media Matters isn’t on a quest to purify the public space. They’re on a quest to destroy their political opponents, which is why they defended MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

But those boycotts continue apace. This time, Tucker Carlson is the target. In the past, Media Matters has targeted Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Megyn Kelly, and pretty much anyone remotely associated with the right.

This time, Media Matters has seized on Carlson’s old comments. That's the worst form of this nonsense, because it isn't even a critique of something happening in the here and now (bad current comments are more obviously indefensible than older comments, which often have context ignored in bad faith). And the media, who largely mirror Media Matters’ political angle, treated all of this as a shocking revelation: conservative Fox News host said Bad Things™ a while ago! And granted, he said some actual bad things.

Now, let’s remember a few things. First, this was shock jock radio. For those who have not listened to shock jock radio, there is a reason it is not called comfort radio – it’s about saying deliberately shocking and provocative things to elicit a response. Pretending to be appalled by comments on shock jock radio a decade ago – comments that were made when Carlson worked for MSNBC, and said this stuff on a very popular New York-based radio show – is obviously silly.

Second, there’s no evidence Carlson clings to these views. If he does, it shouldn’t be difficult to ask him about them. This would be the good faith way of raising the issue: asking Carlson about his views. After all, he is alive right now, while he doesn’t actually have access to a time machine that would allow him to erase his old comments. And we are also alive right now! How convenient!

But Media Matters and the media more generally don’t want Carlson asked about his views. That might allow him to explain himself. They would prefer to flash freeze his views a decade ago, without reference to his subsequent career, the context in which he made those statements, or the societal context that valued shock jock stupidity. That allows everyone to schoolmarm Carlson over stuff they ignored when he said them.

Finally, literally everyone can be subjected to their Fifteen Minutes Hate over Bad Things™ they’ve said. Hell, I have an entire list, updated routinely, of stuff I regret saying. So do we all.

The attack strategy on Carlson is dangerous because it applies to anyone who has been public, and offers no chance of explanation or redemption. The chances that public figures haven’t said something problematic over the course of years is effectively zero. So, here’s the deal: if you wanted James Gunn not to lose his job -- or Joy Reid, or Sarah Jeong, or Kevin Hart, or Ralph Northam, or a bevy of others who have had old comments “resurfaced” by the scolds of social media – then you shouldn’t be standing with this career assassination attempt against Carlson.

This sort of stuff makes for a worse country. It’s not meant to purify our public discourse. It’s meant to club to death opponents using the convenience of a Google search. The use of the tactic means that only the shameless (people who will never apologize for anything) or neophytes (people who have never said anything) or radical Leftists who will be let off the hook for anything (see Reid, Joy) will be tolerated. That’s the goal. So let’s not pretend Media Matters is making the world a better place. They’re making it a worse one, one fishing expedition at a time.

The Democratic National Committee has scheduled 10 debates thus far for the 2020 presidential election campaign, which is already in full swing. Not surprisingly, CNN and MSNBC/NBC/Telemundo have been awarded two of those debates airing this summer, which could ultimately feature somewhere in the range of 20 candidates and therefore may be split up into two debates or more per location.

But when faced with the decision of whether to award a primary debate to Fox News, the top-rated channel on basic cable, the DNC decided to play to its base than expand the voter net in rejecting the network.

In a Wednesday afternoon statement, DNC Chairman Tom Perez said he had held conversations with Fox News about potentially allowing the network to host a primary debate. But he said a story published in The New Yorker about the network's alleged ties with the Trump administration prompted the committee to end the Fox consideration.

“Recent reporting in The New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and FOX News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates. Therefore, FOX News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates,” Perez said.

The decision by Perez comes after some Democratic candidates have appeared on the network. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) appeared on anchor Bret Baier's "Special Report," in February, for example.

"One of the reasons I came on this show is that I believe that candidates for office, whether Democrat or Republican, have to go not just where it’s comfortable but where it’s uncomfortable. And I love you," she told Baier on Feb. 12. "But you know, Fox may not always be comfortable for Democrats but I want to make that point.”

Other candidates have followed suit. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) joined Tucker Carlson last week, primarily to discuss her position on the Syrian conflict and the U.S. role in it. Afterward, Gabbard — an Iraq War veteran — touted the interview to her nearly 300,000 followers.

In February, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was interviewed by Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy. Presumptive presidential candidate Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) was interviewed by Fox host Chris Wallace. Former Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) was interviewed by Fox anchor Martha MacCallum. Howard Schultz, the former Starbucks CEO, who has hinted at running as an independent candidate, sat down with former Bush press secretary Dana Perino, currently an afternoon host on Fox, a few weeks ago.

So why appear on Fox News for what invariably are more challenging, or as Klobuchar put it, less comfortable interviews?

The answer is two-fold. First, raw numbers: Klobuchar's interview with Baier delivered 2.5 million viewers, or easily more than twice the amount who tuned in to CNN's Town Hall with Klobuchar in February, which took in just 1.17 million total viewers. In Gabbard's case, her Feb. 28 appearance was watched by more than 3 million viewers. The Hawaii congresswoman has a Town Hall on CNN on Sunday night, which will likely generate an audience more in the 1 million range. Delaney, a relative unknown in a crowded field, was watched by 2 million people when interviewed on MacCallum's "The Story." He will also get a CNN Town Hall on Sunday night.

Bottom line: All exposure is a good thing. An hour on CNN's national stage despite the smaller audience is something any candidate would gladly take. But the electoral map changed in 2016. The "blue wall" that was supposed to protect and propel Hillary Clinton to the highest office in the land came crashing down after Donald Trump picked off Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan, the first time a Republican nominee won those three states in the same election since Ronald Reagan, who took 49 of 50 in blowing out Walter Mondale in '84.

So if you're a Democratic White House hopeful, the road goes ultimately through the Midwest, the Rust Belt, and states like Florida, North Carolina, Arizona and Nevada. Therefore, appearing on Fox News and doing interviews with other outlets outside what is perceived largely as comfort zones will be a necessity, if capturing the same independent and blue-dog voters Trump swayed in 2016 is the goal.

Debate moderators are also important. In Fox News's case, it was hard to argue that anchor Chris Wallace wasn't easily the best moderator of the dozens that were called upon in the primaries and the general election campaign in 2015 and 2016. And few would argue that Baier or MacCallum (the latter replacing Megyn Kelly this time around) are advocates for Trump or his administration. Even the network's harshest critics will tell you all are solid journalists who ask tough, relevant questions.

“We hope the DNC will reconsider its decision to bar Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, all of whom embody the ultimate journalistic integrity and professionalism, from moderating a Democratic presidential debate," said Bill Sammon, senior vice president and managing editor of the Fox News Washington bureau. "They’re the best debate team in the business and they offer candidates an important opportunity to make their case to the largest TV news audience in America, which includes many persuadable voters.”

The last time a sitting Democratic president was challenged in 2012, the Republican National Committee awarded MSNBC a debate.

Now with the shoe on the other foot with the blue team looking to oust a Republican president, the DNC would be wise to do the same with outlets its candidates normally don't run to.

Joy Behar Trying To Explain Wearing Blackface Is Simply Ridiculous. Watch Below…

Looks like an old blackface video has finally caught up with liberal host Joy Behar.

The Wrap media editor Jon Levine shared the old video of “The View” from 2016 which showed the co-host trying to explain a Halloween costume she wore when she was younger.

Behar shared the picture of herself when she was 29 during a discussion about curly hair.

After the picture appeared, Raven-Symoné who was a co-host at the time asked her, “Joy, are you black?”

From Fox News:

“I was so cute,” Behar said.

“Joy… are you my auntie, Joy?” Raven-Symoné joked.

Behar explained that the picture was taken at a Halloween party where she dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” and stressed that it was her actual hair.

“Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?” Raven-Symoné asked.

Behar responded by saying she wore makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

This comes at a time when a scandal involving wearing blackface has embroiled Democrats in Virginia. Both the Governor and the Attorney General have admitted to wearing blackface at parties in the 1980s.

Comedians like Jimmy Kimmel have worn blackface in the past and faced no pushback for it.

Megyn Kelly spoke about people wearing blackface when she was a child and she was let go after it.

ABC News has not responded about what they think of the Joy Behar incident.

NBC’s Megyn Kelly looks like she is out at the network and the reason centers around a “blackface” statement she made.

Since then, she has apologized and not only did she say she was sorry, she did it with tears. However, that still wasn’t enough for the execs who have seemingly removed her from the LIVE show for the rest of this week.

Related: Megyn Kelly’s Return In Doubt As NBC Forces Her To Apologize For Non-PC Comments

The View’s Joy Behar dressed as an African-American woman back in the 70s and was proud to talk about her curly hair and skin tone that she worked on to make the look authentic.

Behar talked in adoration of trying to look the part of a ‘beautiful African woman,’ even down to the makeup for her skin. Kelly brought up dressing to look like Diana Ross during her discussion, and her panel threw her to the wolves as if she should have never brought it up.

We’ve seen a lot of white women dress up like black women and vice versa over the years. White woman tan while black women use fading cream to lighten their skin. NBC went overboard with this “blackface” thing, but I still think it was more about Kelly defending Judge Brett Kavanaugh over Christine Blasey Ford than anything.

In an attempt to make some sort of point, Joy kept saying: “That’s my hair! That’s my hair!” which, yeah, we get it. What’s your point, Joy?

Clearly she’s trying to draw some sort of similarity between her short curly haircut and an afro, which, nope never nah. Joy looks like a white lady with white lady hair. That’s about it.

Joy helpfully notes, after being asked by Raven-Symoné if she was wearing tanning lotion, that she was in fact wearing makeup “little bit darker than [her] skin.” Yikes mcyikes.

If the timing is correct, that would date this photo around 1971. I can’t really get too bothered at this blackface-lite costume because it was 1971 and people didn’t even know what microaggressions were. I’m more flabbergasted by her willingness to pull this photo out and proudly show the world as if it’s totally cool in the year 2016.

What do you think about Behar dressing up like a black woman for Halloween? Do you think she should be fired today from the view for what happened back in 1971? Do you think Megyn Kelly should be fired for thinking it’s ok to dress up like this for Halloween if she wanted to?

Boycotts of Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham over comments about immigrants and David Hogg have cost Fox News millions, data show

Townhall

Published  2 months ago

When a black-and-white picture that appeared below Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s 1984 medical school yearbook page - of a bowtied man in blackface standing next to a white-robed member of the Ku Klux Klan - starting making the media rounds on Friday, it struck me at first like the most ridiculously cartoonish of fake news. Here was the Democratic governor of Virginia - by all accounts heretofore a good Leftist who openly advocates for every liberal issue under the sun including, of late, borderline infanticide - potentially being caught up in a racial controversy that would make Robert Byrd blush.

It was almost too surreal to be true, too seemingly contrived to not be a made-up meme from the bowels of the right-wing internet. But time told the tale soon enough. Was the picture real? Turns out, it was. Was the picture actually under Northam’s yearbook page? For sure. Was Northam actually in the picture, either in blackface or a KKK robe? Well, that one is a little more up in the air, especially after the Virginia governor’s Saturday press conference denying it. Whether or not Northam’s vehement denials are enough to raise more than a reasonable doubt in the minds of Virginians is yet to be seen, but regardless, the die has been cast. Make no mistake, Ralph Northam’s days as governor of Virginia are quickly coming to an end.

Now at this point, the ‘narrative’ for me as a non-left-wing columnist might typically be to demonstrate the difference between ‘Good Democrat’ Ralph Northam’s situation and that of, well, pretty much anyone right of center, like Iowa Rep. Steve King. Surely, there is a double-standard, right? They’ve obviously existed in the past. But in this case, while a cynic might say liberals have nothing to gain by replacing Northam with the even more liberal Justin Fairfax, the quick response from Democrats and liberals of every stripe, from Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi to Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the NAACP, suggests at least an increasing willingness to finally police their own.

View Cartoon

So now everyone is being policed, at least when it comes to real or perceived racial sins, no matter how egregious or how far removed from the present. Do you feel safer? I know I do! Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank celebrated this fact in a Saturday column, contending that, while Northam has lived an admirable life of late and likely considers losing it all because of an almost 35-year-old transgression “unfair,” that’s just the way it should be.

“But some things should disqualify people from public service — a Nazi salute, sexual assault, preying on children and, yes, dressing as a Klansman or in blackface — and it doesn’t matter if it happened 35 years ago,” Milbank wrote.

So, a home invader can be the governor of Virginia, but Northam can’t? To be clear, I am not in any way excusing or condoning the use of blackface in any era. It’s insensitive, horrific, and it should be condemned, but if someone honestly doesn’t see a moral difference between preying on children and a politically-incorrect party-gone-WAAAAAY-wrong, one’s morals are, shall we say, highly suspect.

But these are the New Puritans we’re dealing with here, people for whom real or perceived racial sins - and they get to determine what those are - are the worst sins ever, basically the same as raping a woman or preying on a child. And so, Milbank celebrates the fact that Megyn Kelly lost her job at NBC (does Milbank believe Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Sarah Silverman are also equivalent to child predators? Apparently, some of that old double-standard does exist!) for seemingly defending blackface and laments Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ electoral win despite the fact that he simply said the common phrase “monkey this up.”

Then, he blamed it on Trump, because of course he did.

“Some might think this all a witch hunt, to use the president’s term of art, but it is, at least in part, a salutary backlash against what Trump represents,” Milbank wrote. “Appalled by his racism, his vulgarity and his appalling treatment of women, we are reacting by holding public officials (and hopefully ourselves) to a higher standard. We are cleansing ourselves for the sins of Trump.”

“Cleansing ourselves” - a uniquely Puritanical concept. Except, this time ironically coming from a leftist individual who likely eschews most of what would be considered traditional Biblical morality. When every form of perversion becomes acceptable, liberals must signal their ‘virtue’ by righteously condemning what has now become the gravest of sins. And conservatives, fearing the backlash, more often than not join right in. And so the policing of the New Morality becomes even more strict than the old ever was.

Here’s a concept. Even taking into account the Michael Jackson skin darkening episode to which Northam HAS admitted and apologized for - an action Milbank still thinks disqualifies him the same as “sexual assault” and “preying on children” would - what if Ralph Northam is simply someone who made a mistake many years ago and has tried to atone for it, albeit wrong-headedly (because news flash: going liberal is NEVER the way to atone for past racial sins), ever since?

The answer, of course, is it doesn’t matter. Apologies don’t matter. Remorse doesn’t matter. There is no forgiveness. There is no repentance. There is only shaming and punishment, and being driven from whatever job or platform you are in.

It’s a new world the New Puritans have created and, Right or Left, we’re all living in it.

To those who comment consistently and negatively about the Fox News channel whenever it is mentioned in print, may I ask, What planet are you on?

I began covering the cable news wars, Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, and other topics for American Thinker and other publications 20 months ago. That was barely four months into President Trump's first term. Already at that point, most of the mainstream media, of which Fox News is an outlying part, was ratcheting up its negative coverage of the new president. Two years later now, that coverage has become pretty much intolerable, with CNN and MSNBC in particular almost totally unwatchable due to their constant negative bias against everything Trump.

While its 24-7 programming schedule is not above criticism, Fox News has emerged as the sole exception in all of MSM broadcast and cable news. Its signature nightly news program, Special Report, anchored M-F by Bret Baier, which recently added weekend editions at the same hour, is head and shoulders above the competition on the two other major cable news channels, the broadcast networks, and PBS.

Two additional hours of live news, at 7 and 11 P.M. E.T., hosted by veteran broadcasters Martha MacCallum and Shannon Bream, are also refreshingly fair and objective. Meanwhile, the core of Fox News's prime-time schedule – 8-11 P.M. E.T., with each hour-long show during that time period repeated starting at 12 midnight E.T. – features the most credible, newsmaking, and consistently conservative opinion-dominated shows that Fox News has ever presented.

The prime-time schedule of the "good old days" of the Roger Ailes era of Fox News that some people say they miss, for example five years ago, consisted of Bill O'Reilly at 8 P.M., Megyn Kelly at 9, and Sean Hannity at 10. Hannity was the only reliable conservative of the three. Today, and for the past year-plus, Tucker Carlson Tonight at 8, Hannity at 9, and The Ingraham Angle at 10 are arguably among the best programs Fox News has ever presented.

Since its premiere on November 14, 2016, Tucker Carlson Tonight has quickly evolved into must-see viewing. Carlson's credentials include a twenty-year-long history as a news program host on all three major cable news channels as well as a background as a prolific writer and editor – he co-founded the leading conservative site The Daily Caller in 2010. Carlson's nightly opening monologues and his well informed challenges to a variety of left-wing guests frequently go viral and are as good as anything in print or online.

During the past two years, Hannity, one of President Trump's closest friends, has assembled a regular cast of guests and contributors who have uncovered the web of corruption involving the Obama administration; the Department of Justice; the FBI; and other elements of the Deep State, which has conspired to take down the Trump administration since 2016.

Mark Levin's Sunday night show, Life, Liberty & Levin, is the only long-form one-on-one interview program on all of cable news television. His guests are often conservative thought leaders who immediately command a viewer's attention but who otherwise seldom have an opportunity to present their ideas at length on commercial television.

Early in the mornings, seven days a week, Fox & Friends, one of the closest things to lighter infotainment on the channel's schedule, also stands alone in terms of quality and openness to conservative guests and ideas compared with all of the other morning programs on both cable and broadcast television. The program's hosts are clearly right of center, and it's reportedly one of the president's favorite shows. Fox & Friends' respect for American history and traditions including the military, police officers, and people in flyover states – where a host will often broadcast from remotely – is refreshing.

Finally, two recent long-form investigative series, part of the ongoing Scandalous franchise, were among the best television documentaries in recent times. They shed extensive new light on two scandals – involving the Clintons and the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) – that finally got the detailed review and treatments they deserved.

Nothing is perfect, and one can find fault with some of the other programs on the FNC schedule. A mid-afternoon news show hosted by Sheppard Smith, who seems as though he'd be more at home on CNN, and Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace are two examples. There is also the overabundance of irritating Fox News "contributors" like Jessica Tarlov, Marie Harf, Cathy Areu, and Juan Williams. But they and the other in-house left-wingers never appear without being challenged by an equal or greater number of conservatives.

Tonight, January 10 at 9 P.M. E.T., Hannity will present an exclusive interview with President Donald Trump from McAllen, Texas, where the president is scheduled to visit the border. In the midst of the partial government shutdown over the issue of border security, it promises to be another newsmaking interview. Also on the show will be interviews with Border Patrol and ICE agents. In the past year, President Trump has limited his TV interviews to the Fox News channel.

A complement to Fox News on cable and satellite is Fox News dot com online – a news and opinion site that is one of the most popular news websites in the U.S., second only to CNN's.

For those who insist that they never watch Fox News because it's just another part of the biased and failing MSM, be careful what you wish for. If it drastically changes its current course or somehow disappears from cable TV, I can guarantee that it will be missed.

Depending on which report you read, the death of the Weekly Standard is either imminent or a tad less imminent. Either way, the anti-Trump publication founded by Bill Kristol and Fred Barnes in 1995 appears to be in desperate need of a rich savior, and any attempt to find one has thus far failed.

Has editor-in-chief Stephen Hayes reached out to George Soros or Tom Steyer? I’m not even joking.

Listen, no one enjoys the prospect of seeing anyone lose a job, so in the spirit of the season, I just want to say to the Weekly Standard staff that I am every bit as distraught over this as you would be if Breitbart News shut down.

The easiest way to sum up the failure of the Weekly Standard is this: Why would anyone on the right offer financial support to the Weekly Standard when CNN will call us a racist for free? And why would anyone on the left offer financial support to the Weekly Standard when CNN will call us a racist for free?

Sarcasm aside, that is the Weekly Standard’s primary problem. In the age of Trump, the publication offers nothing we cannot get everywhere else in the elite media, nothing we cannot find at the far-left Washington Post, MSNBC, New York Times, CNN, etc.

Smug virtue-signaling and superior Trump-bashing are the cheapest commodities in today’s news business. They are literally everywhere. And so, instead of offering a unique voice and perspective in an ocean of left-wing media, the Weekly Standard instead chose to sit in the middle of this ocean and sell saltwater.

Even those in the establishment media lamenting the loss of the Weekly Standard are all spewing some variation of the same thing: “An important conservative voice opposing Trump.”

Sure, we all understand why the corrupt media found this “important voice” valuable: it allowed them to exploit the Weekly Standard and its contributors as a club against Trump from the right, and there is no species on earth the media find more useful than a narcissistic Republican bashing one of his own.

Regardless, the media’s ability to use the Weekly Standard as a propaganda weapon did not make the Weekly Standard more interesting to the everyday news and opinion consumer. In fact, the Weekly Standard became so predictable in its reactionary response to all things Trump (and his supporters), so predictable, it ceased to be interesting (a problem the Weekly Standard shares with last-place CNN).

I don’t do boycotts, so I did not stop visiting the Weekly Standard for any other reason than I lost interest. The publication’s decision to sell out, to conform with the elite media, made it dull and wholly unnecessary.

And on top of all that tedious conformity, there was the sell-out factor.

Whether it was their banal stories or sanctimonious tweets, it seemed as though everything coming from the Weekly Standard was manipulated in a way to earn an invite on Morning Joe or from Don Lemon; as a means to attract the Washington Post into hiring just one more disgraced neocon willing to publicly renounce all his previous beliefs in exchange for a byline and a few bucks.

Watching grown men demean themselves in this way is kind of like watching porn. The first 15 minutes are great, but then you just want to take a shower and never watch again.

I don’t want to mislead anyone. This is not one of those “I loved you and you betrayed me” pieces. I’ll save that for David Letterman and National Review. For a time, though, there were a few writers over there I read regularly, but I was never a subscriber or anything.

No, the Weekly Standard as a whole only became interesting to watch as it fell into the establishment media’s classic trap, the old siren song of, Betray your base and we’ll love you…

And then your base abandons you, the music stops, and just like Megyn Kelly, you discover you’re the one without a chair.

An Antifa angry mob gathered outside of Fox New's anchor Tucker Carlson's home on Wednesday evening.

The anti-fascists group, possibly associated with Smash Racism, D.C., chanted "Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night" outside of Carlson's D.C. home, according to Fox News. In a video posted online, the group can also be heard saying "racist scumbag, leave town!"

Carlson's wife, Susie, was home alone at the time. He told Fox she locked herself into a pantry and called police.

The host of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" told Fox the mob broke his oak door and one person in the group mentioned a pipe bomb, as heard on a security video.

“Here’s the problem, I have four children,” he told Fox. “I never thought twice about leaving them home alone, but this is the reaction because this group doesn’t like my TV show.”

Smash Racism, D.C., posted Carlson's family address on Twitter in a now-deleted post, The Daily Caller reports. Carlson told Fox his home addresses of his brother and his former college roommate, Neil Patel, who co-founded "The Daily Caller" with him, were also made public.

The group's Twitter account was suspended as of Thursday morning.

Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly reacted to the news on Twitter, saying "this has to stop."

Does everybody remember when Megyn Kelly tried to blindside Trump during the debates a couple of years ago?

Even folks who don’t like Megyn Kelly think this is BS. I want every news anchor who ever wore a Dracula costume to be fired for insulting Romanians. How do you think that will turn out?

Rosanne Barr got fired for virtually the same thing Megyn did. It is the evil PC culture, and you have to be like Trump to shrug it off for what it is. Kelley was in trouble on NBC, and they were looking for a way to dump her contract. Unfortunately for her, she was never embraced by the liberals and has no place among the conservatives which she abandoned.

Coming back to Fox News is not the answer. She might not be apart of Fox News but they have space on Fox Nation as they are creating new subscription shows so if they wanted to bring her back they could but I think she burnt that bridge.

Weeks before the blackface imbroglio that resulted in her being pulled off the air, Megyn Kelly was looking for a way out of NBC. Her relationship with the peacock network had badly soured—in truth, it had never been good—and Kelly told friends she wanted to return to Fox News, according to two Fox News sources familiar with her thinking. “She wants to come back,” a person close to Kelly told me.

Over the past month, according to two sources with knowledge of Kelly’s programming decisions, she made comments on air that would burnish her right-wing credentials for a prospective Fox homecoming. For instance, she vigorously defended Brett Kavanaugh on multiple occasions, calling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford a “Democrat donor” who was represented by a “well-known Democratic activist.”

Would Fox take her? The answer right now appears to be no. A source close to Lachlan Murdoch, C.E.O. of Fox News’s parent company “New Fox,” said he is “extremely pleased with the current lineup.” Two high-level Fox staffers said any final decision about Kelly would be made by Lachlan and his father, Rupert Murdoch the company chairman.

She should not have apologized. That was a mistake. People need to learn that there is no forgiveness with the Left. They will ruin you to the fullest extent they think they can get away with. People just don’t get it. Leftists will never forgive you. When you apologize for the sin of having your mind, you give the leftists the rope they’ll hang you. All people MUST tote 100 percent sanctioned leftist dogma 100 percent of the time, or else.

This whole “controversy” is a perfect illustration of how stupid and silly our culture has become. She should go on air tomorrow dressed as Louis Farrakhan, blackface and all, and recite excerpts from his speeches for an hour.

This isn’t about racism, or PC culture, or leftist ideology.NBC has no leg to stand on. One of their biggest shows since Seinfeld, 30 Rock, has used blackface in at least three episodes I could find. One was John Hamm in blackface. Jimmy Fallon has done blackface on the Tonight Show as well.

NBC has been looking for something, anything, to get rid of Megyn since her first Sunday night special on the network. The current imbroglio gives them the opportunity to cut her loose, look like they’re addressing a race issue, and get someone in the job that can draw an audience. They’re even willing to pay out the remainder of her contract ($69 million?) to be rid of her. Now, there’s no evidence that they’ll make a better decision next time, but NBC brass is convinced that they know what they’re doing.

It’s been a dumpster fire at 30 Rock for a number of years, but I don’t watch a single NBC program, so I don’t care.

Now that NBC has handed Megyn Kelly her walking papers for her remarks about Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps, who was called racist for darkening her skin to dress as Diana Ross, it should be noted that America's major news networks seem to be rather inconsistent about the darkening of skin for comedic purposes. Back in 2000, Jimmy Kimmel notoriously appeared in blackface to pretend he was NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone on Comedy Central's "The Man Show."

Kelly, speaking of Lesseps, stated, “And people said that that was racist. And I don’t know! I thought like, who doesn’t love Diana Ross? She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day, and I don’t know how that got racist on Halloween.”

That got her fired.

Kimmel, on the other hand, had this to say as he mimicked Malone: (note the broken English)

Sometime at night, Karl Malone look up at sky and say, “What the hell goin’ on up there? Do UFO live on other planet, phonin’ home like E.T.?’ Karl Malone read on TV about white people gettin’ deducted (sic) by alien, speakin’ all kind of hell up they butt. And that’s a damn thing. Now, Karl Malone never seen no flyin’ saucer itself, but if he do, that goin’ to be a spooky time. That’s why Karl Malone say, ‘Government got to step up and give 102% to keepin’ them little green men of this here earth, ‘cause the day them dudes sticks somethin’ up Karl Malone butt, well, that ain’t gonna be no good time for nobody, especially Karl Malone butt. Listen up, E.T.’ you better stay the hell back. Nanoo, nanoo. Until next time, this here Karl Malone.

As The Daily Wire noted after Kelly was fired:

NBC News played up her comments, featuring them on Lester Holt’s nightly news show; the head of NBC News, Andy Lack, blasted Kelly on Wednesday, stating, “There is no other way to put this: I condemn those remarks; there is no place on our air or in this workplace for them.”

But Kimmel? He not only wore blackface, he mocked Malone as being unable to speak articulate English. Where is ABC on this crucial issue?

This couldn’t have anything to do with ratings, could it? As The Wrap reported of Kelly’s ratings:

From September 2017 to September 2018, Kelly’s 9 a.m. ET show fell 13 percent overall from its predecessor (2.8 million vs. 2.4 million), which was just a third hour of the “Today” show, hosted by Tamron Hall and Al Roker. The decline versus Septembers 2016-2017 was twice as bad on a percentage basis among adults 25-54, the key demographic for news programming.

“Megyn Kelly Today” also shed 26 percent of its viewers ages 18-49, and it was actually off two points more than that among young women ...

Here are her total-viewer drops per quarter when compared with the final year of the previous format:

Q4 2017: -19.49%

Q1 2018: -17.16%

Q2 2018: -9.88%

Q3 2018: -4.79%

If NBC thought they had purchased a pretty, compliant face when they hired Megyn Kelly, they may discover, too late, that they were mistaken.

Kelly, who came to dominate Fox News' prime-time block with searing wit and a rapid legal mind, has found herself in hot water in her $69 million, three-year contract with NBC News. NBC's most vocal talking head and executives would have you believe Kelly's troubles are due to a racially insensitive but not intentional gaffe earlier this week. Don't believe them.

[Read: Megyn Kelly out at 'Today,' will still collect $69 million]

In a discussion earlier this week about the political correctness of Halloween costumes, Kelly obliviously questioned why using dark shaded makeup to resemble a black celebrity in a complementary manner is offensive. Correctly, critics noted that the practice of blackface has an ugly and storied history of targeting and subjugating black Americans, and Kelly promptly issued two thoughtful apologies.

After committing an ignorant but not malicious gaffe in a year rife with much more offensive behavior by hundreds of TV personalities, Kelly reportedly will be fired from her morning show by NBC and dropped as a client by the Creative Artists Agency. Some reporters will have you believe that it's because NBC anchors found this remark, in tandem with Kelly's comparatively low ratings and extremely high salary, to be the straw that broke the camel's back. Instead, the public needs to look closer at the one story, and perhaps the only story, that the majority of broadcast news will not tell you.

Kelly came to NBC in the wake of her relentless targeting by supporters of President Trump and after fighting the sexual harassment of Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes. Unlike many of NBC's other residential stars, Kelly came from cable news, and a politically charged channel at that.

But Kelly's NBC coverage didn't fit within a Fox News mold. Instead, as stories from the #MeToo movement broke, Kelly took Hollywood's most powerful abusers to task, platforming some of the very first Harvey Weinstein victims that came forward, like Lauren Sivan, Mimi Haleyi, and Dominique Huett. Amid the stunning realization that NBC News had attempted to silence the groundbreaking stories of former employee Ronan Farrow, who later published his #MeToo reporting in the New Yorker, Kelly publicly and persistently called for an independent investigation of NBC's methods and motives.

But most damningly, Kelly has made it clear that she will not welcome back abusers. When asked about Matt Lauer, NBC's lovely, $20 million anchor who had a door lock on his desk to more easily prey on female subordinates, Kelly minced as few words as she could without condemning her employers for their complicity in Lauer's persistent harassment.

"I know too much that others don't know," Kelly said when asked about the allegation. Kelly interviewed his accusers on her morning show, sending a public warning shot not just to Lauer, but to his many remaining NBC loyalists, that a remorseful comeback would not be tolerated.

Hollywood gossip giants have known of the tension between Kelly and NBC News chairman Andy Lack due to her reporting for half a year. But beware of the all-too convenient narrative that Kelly's demise would come from a since-rectified gaffe. NBC knew they bought an anchor used to Fox News prime time rather than the ease of morning shows. But Kelly also fought a president and a prime-time guru. No doubt Andy Lack underestimated her potential to doggedly cover her own company's malpractice.

Writing for the Hollywood Reporter, former NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar took the executives at NBC to task for the failed experiment to make over conservative Fox News personality Megyn Kelly into a mainstream NBC host on the Today show.

According to the former NBA star turned political commentator, there is no excuse for Kelly’s comments saying dressing up in blackface was perfectly acceptable when she was growing up.

“What she says matters because it enters the social unconscious as a splinter that festers to an infection in our cultural values,” Abdul-Jabbar wrote. “Kelly’s doe-eyed defense of wearing blackface for Halloween as not being racist is classic: ‘What is racist? When I was a kid, that was ok, as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character.'”

“For a popular public figure with a law degree, she really is way too comfortable ignoring simple logic,” he continued. “Her statement is the common logical fallacy of ‘appeal to tradition’ that suggests that because something happened in the past, it’s good, true, or beneficial. Like bleeding people when they’re sick, or women not voting, or slavery. Nostalgia is not an excuse for promoting bad behavior. If it were, we wouldn’t have made marital rape illegal—which we didn’t start to do in the U.S. until the mid-1970s (with it being illegal in the entire country by 1993).”

He then singled out NBC for hiring her despite her well-known history of making the type of inflammatory comments that conservative network thrives on.

“In Megyn Kelly’s case, it would be difficult to sustain an argument that she was ignorant of the blackface controversy,” he wrote. “Either she deliberately was racist in order to juice her flagging ratings, or she was too dumb to know it was racist, which is inexcusable for a newsperson. Either reason is grounds for dismissal.”

“This is not the best of all possible worlds and NBC might have sent her a mixed message when hiring her,” Abdul-Jabbar suggested. “Kelly made consistently racist statements while at Fox News, so when NBC hired her in 2017, its executives were saying: We’re rewarding your racism on Fox by paying you $69 million over three years.”

“Then when she does the same thing that got her that mega-payday, NBC suddenly expresses socially conscious outrage,” he claimed, before adding a final condemnation.

“Not quite racist, but racist-adjacent. Firing Kelly does not wash away everyone’s past sins, but it’s still a cleansing moment.”

Now, Megyn Kelly, who was once a shining star on Fox News, until she dared to take on the one man willing to fight the leftist mainstream media, may have found herself out of a job after the PC mob descended on her for daring to question why it’s not okay to wear blackface on the Today Show, where she never seemed to fully connect with her audience.

Multiple sources have confirmed to DailyMail.com that Megyn Kelly is out at NBC.

This move comes just 48 hours after the embattled host made remarks in which she defended blackface on Today.

Kelly tried to deal with the scandal by delivering a tearful apology on-air and welcoming two black panelists to discuss the fraught and horrifying history of the practice, but it did no good.

‘Megyn Kelly is done. She is not ever coming back,’ said an NBC executive with knowledge of the situation.

‘We are just working out timing of the announcement but mark my word – she is gone and will never be seen on NBC live again.’

The source then added: ‘Here’s the worst part – her deal is a non-break deal – so she walks away with all that money. It’s disgusting and heads should roll here because of it.’

A spokesperson for NBC declined to comment at this time.

And it looks like Kelly could be heading for a homecoming of sorts.

A network news insider tells DailyMail.com that there are tentative conversations underway about Kelly returning to Fox News, whose viewers despise what they perceive as ‘political correctness’ and would likely welcome her back with open arms.

Megyn Kelly lost her job at NBC within 48 hours of saying it was considered okay when she was a child for white people to put on “blackface” as long as they “were dressing up as a character.” Three popular anti-Trump comedians did much more than simply talk about it — and they are all still employed.

Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman actually dressed in “blackface” themselves at some point during their career.

Kimmel, while the host of Comedy Central’s “The Man Show,” dressed up more than once in blackface makeup, a bald cap and a body suit to portray former Utah Jazz basketball star Karl Malone as an inarticulate, dim-witted person who had difficulty pronouncing words correctly.

While Jimmy Fallon was hosting the Golden Globes in 2017 his Chris Rock impression reminded the producers of the below video of one he did while at Saturday Night Live in 2000 – in blackface.

In 2007, comedian Sarah Silverman donned “the most racist blackface” in a comedy sketch on “The Sarah Silverman Program,” a move she later said she regrets.

Kelly was fired for the following statement made Tuesday:

“What is racist?” said Kelly. “You do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Like back when I was a kid it was okay if you were dressing up as a character.” (RELATED: MEGYN KELLY REPORTEDLY OUT AT NBC AFTER ‘BLACKFACE’ COMMENTS)

“The offices of at least four Democratic senators have received information about the allegation, and at least two have begun investigating it….

SENATE REPUBLICAN COMMUNICATIONS CENTER

I Love My Freedom

Published  6 months ago

Megyn Kelly was fired up on Monday over Democrats politicizing the accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, where she yelled at one point, “he’s saying he didn’t do it!”

During a segment on NBC’s “TODAY” Show, Kelly and the panel began discussing Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her nearly four decades ago.

After highlighting a few of the credibility issues regarding Ford, Kelly slammed the idea of the FBI conducting an “independent investigation” into the matter.

“The FBI’s not a super-secret special police force to investigate super-secret really bad things the nominee may have done. That’s why we have congressional investigators. The Republicans actually are investigating the Christine Blasey Ford allegations and the Democrats have refused to do so! They’re standing there in protest saying the FBI needs to do it.”

Kelly went on excoriate Senate Democrats and liberal media figures for using shoddy, sketchy, and unsubstantiated claims to smear Kavanaugh as a sexual predator and demand he recuse his nomination.

We don’t know whether Christine Blasey Ford is such a victim. Okay? That must be stated. In my view, the #MeToo movement does not me all women must be believed. All women must get a fair hearing. They must be listened to with an open mind….But some lie. We’ve seen that. So let’s have an open, fair hearing and let people make up their minds after they hear her testify and hear him too. He too is entitled to due process.

And if we go too far and deny due process – deny due process in a case like this, where you have a Supreme Court seat at issue and politics clearly are at play….what does that do to the #MeToo movement?” Holmes replied: “It politicizes it and it diminishes, you know, claims coming forward. I think that is a real risk, what we’re seeing in the next week.

When one of the panelists argued that Kavanaugh could have done what he is accused of, Kelly smacked him down with facts.

“He’s saying he didn’t do it, Joe!” she shot back. “He’s not saying that those allegations against him amount to nothing if he did! He’s saying he didn’t do it!”

Watch below:

The story surrounding Kavanaugh has been dominating media coverage, and there have been new developments almost daily.

Do you think Democrats will be able to Impeach Trump?

Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegations, and several of the witnesses Ford claimed were in the room have publicly stated they never witnessed what Ford alleges happened.

Both Ford and Kavanaugh are scheduled to testify on Thursday about the alleged incident. Ford, who claims to only vaguely remember the party, finally agreed to speak with lawmakers after trying to use every excuse in the book to avoid testifying.

And to Kelly’s point, Ford lacks any evidence at all to support her claim, and has done everything imaginable to avoid testifying.

Conservatives want the GOP to stand with Kavanaugh and confirm him to the Supreme Court, not cater to liberal scare tactics.

Should Judge Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed to the Supreme Court? ADD YOUR NAME!

“Three days before Ronan [Farrow] and I were going to head to L.A. to interview a woman with a credible rape allegation against Harvey Weinstein, I was ordered to stop, not to interview this woman,” an NBC News whistleblower told the far-left New York Times. “And to stand down on the story altogether.”

“Farrow was prepared to fly to California to interview a woman who was going to claim in silhouette on camera that Weinstein had raped her,” reports the far-left Daily Beast. “Farrow wanted to publish this interview and what he had already gathered, but network higher-ups said he needed more and would not allow Farrow to use an NBC News crew for the interview[.]”

The NBC News whistleblower is Rich McHugh, a 43-year-old producer who worked closely with Farrow on the Weinstein story. He left his job at NBC’s investigative unit some two weeks ago for an opportunity to work for Al Gore on a climate change documentary.

In order to tell his Weinstein story, Farrow was eventually forced to take his reporting to the New Yorker, where it was published two months later and won a Pulitzer Prize. Farrow felt he had no choice because NBC refused to run the story, kept putting him off, kept telling him the story was not solid enough.

This, of course, is ridiculous. Before he left, Farrow spent eight long months putting together his story, and by the time he left NBC he not only had the rape accuser, he had audio tape from a police undercover operation where Weinstein admitted to groping a model and other women.

Noah Oppenheim, the president of NBC News, told the New York Times Farrow “was never told to stop in the way he’s implying.”

Oppenheim, however, has yet to explain why audio tape of Weinstein (a big-time Democrat player and Clinton supporter, and the most powerful man in Hollywood at the time) admitting to groping women was not in and of itself a legitimate story.

As Breitbart News reported previously, Oppenheim’s conflicts of interest are jaw-dropping. Not only does Oppenheim moonlight as a screenwriter, he shared a table with Weinstein at the Time 100 Gala in April of 2017, which, according to the timeline above, happened months after Farrow had started his investigation.

According to the Daily Beast, Oppenheim is blaming his boss, NBC News Chairman Andy Lack, for making him the scapegoat.

Numerous outlets have reported this week that Lack is already on the chopping block over his mishandling of the Matt Lauer sexual harassment scandal and the hiring of Megyn Kelly, one of the most expensive duds in media history.

NBC News itself has also been under fire after the far-left network circled the wagons for MSNBC anchor Joy Reid, who serial lied as a means to blame a supposed hacker (that does not exist) for homophobic ravings published on her personal blog a decade ago.

In each of these instances, rather than bring in outside investigators to fully vet the scandal (as Fox News has done), NBC News chose to investigate NBC News, and each and every time NBC News was able to report that it found no wrongdoing at NBC News.

Chuck Todd, moderator of NBC’s Meet the Press, recently blamed Fox News for the public’s lack of faith in the establishment media. The current accusations against NBC News, the accusation NBC News covered up a credible rape allegation, come from two left-wing media outlets and a producer who now works for Al Gore.

Chuck Todd has yet to explain how Fox News orchestrated all of this.

Megyn Kelly has a three-year, $69 million contract with NBC, but her show's ratings are lagging.

"Megyn Kelly Today" averages about 2.4 million viewers. "Live With Kelly and Ryan" reaches an audience of 3 million in the same time slot on ABC.

Tamron Hall and Al Roker, the hosts who previously had her time slot, made less than half of Kelly's salary with higher ratings.

NBC poached Megyn Kelly from Fox with a three-year contract for $69 million, but her ratings are not consistent with what is expected from that level of network investment.

"Megyn Kelly Today" premiered in September 2017 but has yet to find its audience for its 9 a.m. weekday slot.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Nielsen data shows Kelly averages 2.4 million viewers a day. Kelly's ratings are low in every regard: compared to her own viewership at Fox, compared to her competitors in the same time spot, and compared to her predecessors at NBC.

During Kelly's last year at Fox News, "The Kelly File" averaged 2.7 million viewers despite being on a cable network. Kelly was in prime time and now airs in mornings, but her viewership dropped as she made the transfer from cable to network television.

In the same time slot over at ABC, "Live With Kelly and Ryan" has seen a spike in ratings, partially attributed to Megyn Kelly's performance and partially attributed to Ryan Seacrest being named as Kelly Ripa's permanent co-host.

Nielsen shows that "Live" has expanded its lead over "Today" since Megyn Kelly joined NBC. Ripa and Seacrest now average 747,000 more viewers than Kelly. Forbes reported that Ripa made about $18 million last year and will make approximately $20 million from her "Live" salary in 2018.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the audience for "Megyn Kelly Today" is 18% smaller than the audience for NBC's previous hosts in her spot, Tamron Hall and Al Roker, and that Hall and Roker had a combined salary of less than half of what Kelly is now making when they had the 9 a.m. spot last year. Hall has since left NBC.

Kelly made a major jump from cable to network news by leaving Fox for NBC. Stephen Colbert — who is now making $15 million— made a comparable cable-to-network move from Comedy Central to CBS for "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert." His ratings initially suffered, but the critical reception and viewership of Colbert's late-night talk show have improved.

Kelly's ratings had a temporary improvement in February, which was attributed to NBC's coverage of the Winter Olympics.

The former Fox star's other show with NBC, "Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly" finished its first season earlier than anticipated among low ratings. The first episode featured an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and The Journal reported that NBC was surprised the premiere only took in 6 million viewers.

NBC has said that the weekly news show that aired eight episodes last summer will now run "periodically."

For her part, Kelly has said she is willing to give her program some time to find an audience. "Our show is a baby. We're six months old," Kelly said in a statement.

"Morning TV is obviously new to me and I'm figuring it out as we go ... I think any show needs about a year to find its footing," she said.

CrowdStrike, The DNC’s Security Firm, Was Under Contract With The FBI

Claims of “Russian interference” have been ubiquitous in U.S. political discourse for almost a full year now; these often amount to a melange of allegations ranging from “hacking” to “influence campaigns” to “online trolls” sent by the Kremlin to harangue unsuspecting Midwestern voters. “Hacking,” however, remains the centerpiece of the narrative — the idea that Russian state actors “hacked” the Democratic National Committee and exfiltrated emails is routinely cited as the centerpiece of the overall “interference” thesis. After the alleged hacking, the DNC retained a private security firm — CrowdStrike — which made the determination that the Russian government was responsible, setting into motion a chain of Russia-related events that continue to unfold even now.

TYT can report that at the same time CrowdStrike was working on behalf of the DNC, the company was also under contract with the FBI for unspecified technical services. According to a US federal government spending database, CrowdStrike’s “period of performance” on behalf of the FBI was between July 2015 and July 2016. CrowdStrike’s findings regarding the DNC server breach — which continue to this day to be cited as authoritative by everyone from former FBI Director James Comey, to NBC anchor Megyn Kelly — were issued in June 2016, when the contract was still active.

Last week at a forum with Vladimir Putin, Kelly listed all the authoritative American entities which she claimed have corroborated the conclusion that Russian state actors “interfered” in the 2016 presidential election. (Notwithstanding its vagueness and imprecision, the term “interference” has come to be the standard term American media personalities invoke when seeking to describe how “Russians” maliciously undermined the sanctity of the 2016 US election process.) Querying Putin, Kelly repeated the canard that “17 intelligence agencies” had all independently concluded that Russia indeed “interfered” — whatever that means, exactly. She then continued: “Even private, non-partisan security firms say the same… that Russia interfered with the US election.”

The most prominent “private, non-partisan security firm” is CrowdStrike, and despite Kelly’s use of the term “non-partisan” to describe the firm, its fiduciary relationship with the DNC suggests otherwise. As the journalist Yasha Levine wrote in The Baffler,

Far from establishing an airtight case for Russian espionage, CrowdStrike made a point of telling its DNC clients what it already knew they wanted to hear: after a cursory probe, it pronounced the Russians the culprits. Mainstream press outlets, primed for any faint whiff of great-power scandal and poorly versed in online threat detection, likewise treated the CrowdStrike report as all but incontrovertible.

In April 2016, two months before the June report was issued, former President Barack Obama appointed Steven Chabinsky, “general counsel and Chief Risk officer” for CrowdStrike, to a presidential “Commission for Enhancing Cybersecurity,” further demonstrating CrowdStrike’s intermingling with powerful Democratic Party factions.

Neither the FBI nor CrowdStrike responded to requests for comment on the nature of the services provided. As of yet, the only entity known to receive primary access to the DNC servers is CrowdStrike. At a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in January, Comey testified that the FBI had been denied access to the servers by the DNC after repeated requests. And unnamed FBI officials told reporters, “The FBI repeatedly stressed to DNC officials the necessity of obtaining direct access to servers and data, only to be rebuffed until well after the initial compromise had been mitigated.”

Comey’s long-awaited Congressional testimony on Thursday may provide additional insight into the FBI’s reliance on the firm.

Effectively, information that is now central to massively consequential geopolitical disputes has been “privatized“ and held exclusively by a profit-seeking entity. CrowdStrike’s findings continue to be repeated by journalists and politicians with unflinching certainty — despite the fact that it was forced to retract a central element of another report involving related malware attribution, raising doubts about the reliability of its DNC conclusions. As Jeffrey Carr, a security researcher who has been critical of CrowdStrike’s methods, told me: “The foundation of placing the blame on Russia was false.”

Power to determine world events is increasingly being concentrated in the hands of a tiny group of self-proclaimed “experts” who aren’t accountable to the public, but to clients and investors. CrowdStrike, evidently benefitting from the surge in PR, announced last month that it had been valued at one billion dollars.

So why, exactly, has Lanny Davis been all over television and radio Wednesday morning — hours after his client, Michael Cohen, accepted a deal to plead guilty on eight counts of various violations?

The answer came into focus a bit on Megyn Kelly Today, as the lawyer made a direct appeal to viewers to give money to Cohen so that he can “continue to tell the truth.”

“Could I take one opportunity to remind everyone that Michael Cohen has suffered a tragic and difficult experience with his family,” Davis said. “He’s without resources, and we’ve set up a website called michaelcohentruth.com, that we’re hoping that he will get some help from the American people so he can continue to tell the truth.”

The audience straight up laughed at Davis’s plea for cash.

“I don’t know if they’re ready to donate, Lanny,” host Megyn Kelly said.

But that didn’t stop the attorney from trying to get in the pockets of those watching at home.

“I would say the reaction of your audience may be they are not as interested in getting the truth out about Donald Trump as many other people in the country,” Davis said. “Approximately 60 percent of the country would not have the reaction of your audience.”

This last comment brought murmurs and boos from a clearly skeptical crowd.

Guest post by Michael LaChance at American Lookout:

Megyn Kelly’s new show has struggled in various ways since its launch. She has had ratings problems as well as controversies over comments. Now the network is thinking about changing her time slot which is not a good sign.

The Business Insider reports:

NBC might swap Megyn Kelly’s struggling show with Kathie Lee and Hoda

After months of low ratings, NBC is considering pushing Megyn Kelly’s morning show to a later time slot, Page Six reported.

Sources told Page Six “Megyn Kelly Today” could be pushed an hour later and replaced by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb’s hour of the “Today” show to fix low viewership in the later morning hours.

“It’s the smart move,” an anonymous source labeled as an “insider” told Page Six.

The former Fox News host has struggled to attract viewers since her NBC premiere in September 2017 and opened to wide criticism and disappointing audience numbers that were lower than both her previous viewership and other hosts in the same time slot on similar channels.

Page Six previously reported Kelly’s audience was down 32% from the previous year and was affecting viewership for the later hours of the “Today” show.

But recent Nielsen data is tracking Kelly’s show up 5% in total viewers month-over-month. A network source told Page Six the rumored swap was “just another ‘timeless’ rumor about Megyn Kelly.”

Where will Megyn go if this show gets cancelled? MSNBC?

In a memo to President Trump, a group of former U.S. intelligence officers, including NSA specialists, cite new forensic studies to challenge the claim of the key Jan. 6 “assessment” that Russia “hacked” Democratic emails last year.  Editor’s Note: This VIPS Memo included two mistaken dates.
