Catching up with an amusing clip played on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on February 11, which answers the question of what happens when small children encounter their athlete father in a state of undress, displaying a certain piece of protective equipment they’ve never seen before.
On Friday, CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 surprisingly spotlighted that the "hands up, don't shoot" narrative and chant forwarded by many left-wing supporters of Michael Brown's family is grounded in falsehoods. Correspondent Sara Sidner cited a recent Justice Department report that underlined that the mantra is "inconsistent with the physical and forensic evidence" and that "witnesses have acknowledged their initial accounts were untrue."
NBC and ABC barely covered the possible corruption case against Democratic Senator Robert Menendez on their Friday evening newscasts. Together, the two networks set aside 49 seconds of air time to news briefs on Senator Menendez being "the subject of a corruption investigation over jet trips he took on the private plane of a Florida eye doctor," as Lester Holt put it on NBC Nightly News.
On Friday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell observed that the Republican-led Benghazi investigation gained credibility in the wake of the Hillary Clinton email scandal that it uncovered: "Well, the Benghazi investigation by the Select Committee was viewed by many as overkill. That it had all been cleared up back two years ago. And the fact is that some people, certainly the partisans for Hillary Clinton, thought it was a witch hunt. Now they [Republicans] can say, with some legitimacy, 'We didn't have all the emails.'"
Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos admitted on Tuesday that, when he first started, even his fellow colleagues at ABC News wondered if he could be objective. Talking to Alec Baldwin for the actor's radio show Here's The Thing, recounted how, in 1997, Ted Koppel "came to my office and looked me in the eye and asked me why I'm here and if I really felt I could, sort of, do the job, be fair and be objective."
During his opening monologue on Thursday’s Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon made a few jests toward Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and each of their chances of winning the 2016 presidential election. Fallon began the gag by playing a clip of Clinton speaking to the abortion group EMILY’s List on Tuesday night and asking if they “someday want to see a woman president of the United States of America” to which “the crowd,” Fallon said, “went crazy.”
CBS News contributor and Republican pollster Frank Luntz convened a focus group on Hillary Clinton that aired on Friday’s CBS This Morning and while many expressed their frustration with the possible 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, Luntz failed to mention both Clinton’s email scandal and questions surrounding the Clinton Foundation. As opposed to asking about these important stories, Luntz blamed his focus group for not bringing them up and instead threw softball questions at them concenring Bill and Hillary Clinton and Hillary’s qualifications to be president.
All three networks on Friday warned that Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal is a serious problem for the ex-Secretary of State. Yet, only CBS This Morning pointed out the hypocrisy of a Clinton directive from the State Department. According to co-host Gayle King, "Clinton’s office told State Department employees back in 2011 not to use private email for work." As it turns out, this was the very thing that Clinton did.
Try as he might, Joe Scarborough cannot understand why the Clinton family won’t admit to their moral failures. On Thursday's show, he said “There is something…in the Clintons…there's always a vast right wing conspiracy. There's always the media coming after them. There's always a blood sport. It’s never about them when, in fact, it's always about them.”
But Mike Barnicle was on site to explain away Hillary Clinton’s feeling that she is above the law: politics ruined her childhood. Hillary behaves as she does because “the Clintons have been in a cocoon of practically in a weird way privacy, their own privacy, the presidential privacy, the Hillary Clinton, I'm Hillary Clinton privacy, a security bubble for over a quarter of a century and they are precluded from leading a normal life.”
On Thursday night, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News neglected to mention video that had surfaced earlier in the day of Hillary Clinton attacking the Bush administration in 2007 over their supposed email practices. Instead of mentioning this latest example of hypocrisy by a Clinton, CBS touted a Democratic Congressman who lamented that this story is merely “in the realm of presidential politics” while NBC’s Andrea Mitchell pushed a Clinton-camp talking point and dubbed the scandal as just “fuss.”
Just hours after suggesting on Morning Joe that Hillary Clinton’s private email server as Secretary of State was no big deal – probably just “wedding stuff” – Nicolle Wallace grew more offended by it on The View, although she predicted the Clintons will blame Republicans and the media and just “roll on.”
He's at it again.
On his March 5 Hardball program in a segment with Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) about the 50th anniversary of the Selma march for voting rights, Hardball host Chris Matthews slammed as racially-motived GOP efforts for establishing voter ID laws.
