Kellyanne Conway and her bruising knock down with CNN Chris Cumo

Russia, Russia Russia and CNN. What could go better? Add Kellyanne Conway. In a bruising thirty plus commercial free knock down, CNN and the absurd interview  that occured should move the needle on their ratings down even further. CNN Now Losing To Nick-At-Nite In Prime Time Ratings War  

Better yet, Tucker Carlson has the low lights of the interview. I give you his take on the action, and if you have any interest in the complete absurdity of CNN, the second video will do it.

How Did NY Gov. Cuomo Make $783,000 From A Book That Sold Only 3,200 Copies?

Another righteous politician that needs to be in jail, instead of  being able to run for re-election in November. A possible Governor seat pick up for the GOP. Whats so fascinating is News Corp’s hand in the dirty little business of payoffs. Recall an earlier post of B-ville:

Gov. Cuomo has a message for conservative Republicans — you don’t belong in New York.

Cuomo said Friday that members of the GOP with “extreme” views are creating an identity crisis for their party and represent a bigger worry than Democrats such as himself.
“Their problem isn’t me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” the governor said on Albany’s The Capitol Pressroom radio show. Ed: (In other words, rinos are O.K.)

An investigation has found that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s aides deeply compromised the New York State panel’s work…

Ultimately, Mr. Cuomo abruptly disbanded the commission halfway through what he had indicated would be an 18-month life.

But the latest:

Fox News Channel parent News Corporation may be wrapped up in the sexual harassment accusations surrounding host Bill O’Reilly, but the company is facing another long-running scandal involving what appear to be exuberant payments to a Democrat — payments that occurred even as News Corp. was lobbying the New York State executive branch, which Gov. Andrew Cuomo oversees.

The New York governor, whose memoir was published by the News Corp.-owned HarperCollins in 2014, saw his gross income more than double last year, to $417,748 for 2016 (from $196,243 the year before), the Buffalo News reported Tuesday.

Cuomo attributed $218,100 of that increase to sales of his memoir, “All Things Possible: Setbacks and Successes in Politics and Life.”

In 2015, the governor reportedly earned zero income from book sales and in the nearly three years that it’s been on the market, it has sold just 3,200 copies. But Cuomo, the Buffalo News found, reported that he received a total of $783,000 from HarperCollins in book sales over the past three years,  a number that would translate to royalty payments of nearly $244.69 per copy. On Wednesday, the book was selling on Amazon for $13.05.

News Corp., in the meantime, was registered as a lobbying client as recently as December 2016, according to the New York State government lobbying database. The mass media company, created and headed by Executive Chairman and former CEO Rupert Murdoch, has a long history of lobbying Cuomo’s office for the passage of bills beneficial to its businesses, as previously reported by IBT.

Newsweek Sr. Writer Kurt Eichenwald goes wacko on Tucker Carlson UPDATE

I don’t know how Tucker gets people on his show. One thing is for sure, you are in for a rousing smack down. Tucker would make a great Press secretary. Beating up all those poor hapless reporters who are so full of themselves. Newsweek at one time was a standard subscription for anyone who had a penchant for politics. This interview gives us a glimpse into how far it has fallen. Tucker was trending on twitter big time after the interview. No wonder.  Worth riding out the beginning commercial in the clip.

UPDATE: bydesign001 COMMENTED:  was definitely MUST SEE tv but it didn’t end there. Eichenwald then went on a twitter meltdown. http://grumpyelder.com/2016/12/16/tucker-carlson-vs-newsweeks-kurt-eichenwald-eichenwald-has-twitter-meltdown/

Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host calls out Newsweek for alleged bias and asks reporter Kurt Eichenwald to his face whether he should even be allowed to cover President-elect Trump.

Obama: ‘We are going to have to change the way the media reports

We know that before Obama ends his regime that everything will be done to control the media. Here we have Fox in the crosshairs. But make no mistake, they will be coming after us lowly bloggers. I am on the road back to the Bunker, so may not get a chance to make my rounds. Sirius radio should keep me in the know. As of now, I can listen to it via the radio. Here we go:

FULL REMARKS: Obama Swipes at Fox: Pushing Narrative That Poor People Are ‘Leeches’. President Obama: ‘We’re Going to Have to Change How the Media Reports’. President Obama Destroys Fox News For Spreading Negative Stereotypes About The Poor!
President Obama spoke at a poverty forum at Georgetown University earlier today and took a swipe at Fox News for, as he put it, perpetuating certain stereotypes about poor people. The president addressed media efforts to “suggest the poor are sponges, leeches,” and that they’re “lazy” and undeserving.”
OBAMA SLAMS FOX NEWS President jabs network over portrayal of poverty
“If you watch Fox News on a regular basis,” Obama said, “it is a constant menu––they will find folks who make me mad, I don’t know where they find them.”

He’s referring to the “I just want a free Obamaphone” stuff that adds to a narrative, the president lamented, that needs to change, because that affects “people’s impressions of what it’s like to struggle in this economy.”

The worst of MSNBC Highlights for 2013 -Ugly stuff

Considering all of the contrived flap that went down to re-direct us from any Obama issue of consequence, namely Obamacare, the faux Duck Dynasty has now slowly faded away, and we can now get back to issues of consequence.

Having said that, and it being a rather slow news day, I picked up the “best” of MSNBC. Actually it is laughable. Fox news of course is constantly taken to the woodshed. A and E has their moment in the sun but MSNBC news? Enjoy!

MSNBC never fails to entertain. 2013 was no different for The Place for Politics

CBS and ABC family linked to Obama and Benghazi

Take your pick of the headlines and links. Worried that the I.R.S. may have troubled the Tea Party folks? We should be worried that we even heard about it. Strange today that on Fox this morning, Tucker Carlson and the Fox staff as well has said nothing about this, even though the Daily Caller has the story on the front page.

President Obama’s deputy national security advisor, Ben Rhodes — brother of  CBS News president David Rhodes — was instrumental in changing the talking  points in September 2012.

ABC’s reporting revealed that Ben Rhodes, who has a masters in fiction from  NYU, called a meeting to discuss the talking points at the White House on  September 15, 2012.

Top Obama official’s brother is president of CBS News, may drop reporter over  Benghazi coverage

CBS News executives have reportedly expressed frustration with their own  reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, who has steadily covered the Obama administration’s  handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack in Libya since late last year.

“Network sources” told Politico Wednesday that CBS executives  feel Attkisson’s Benghazi coverage is bordering on advocacy, and Attkisson  “can’t get some of her stories on the air.” Read more:  Daily Caller

Then we have more, even Ben Sherwood at ABC is in the tank:

“CBS News President David Rhodes and ABC News President Ben Sherwood, both of  them have siblings that not only work at the White House, that not only work for  President Obama, but they work at the NSC on foreign policy issues directly  related to Benghazi.”

So stated political consultant and media commentator Richard Grenell on  Saturday’s Fox News Watch

For the record, Ben Sherwood’s sister, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, is the Special Assistant to Barack Obama.

Juan Williams faux thought bubble

Juan Williams: “I’m not a plagiarist, but the guy who writes my columns might be”  is the header for Michelle Malkin. I don’t know why I get some pleasure in this story. He bothers me as he opines on Fox. Perhaps I do. Especially since he wants to ram Immigration down our throats. He took the stuff, or rather his “researcher” took them from the Center for American Progress. Here we go:

New York Magazine

A column by Fox News talking head Juan Williams published last month by the Hill was quietly updated last week to fix some pesky instances of plagiarism. The article, it turned out, featured entire paragraphs from a Center for American Progress report on immigration, with a few words changed here and there, as detailed by Salon. “I was writing a column about the immigration debate and had my researcher look around to see what data existed to pump up this argument and he sent back what I thought were his words and summaries of the data,” Williams told Alex Seitz-Wald without apologizing.

Salon.com:

Williams told Salon that the researcher has submitted a letter of resignation, but that he has not decided whether to accept it. “I just feel betrayed,” Williams said.

Michelle Malkin:

Quite the dilemma. On the one hand, Juan doesn’t want to further risk using work that had been plagiarized, but on the other hand, who else is going to write his column on such short notice?
