ED SCHULTZ PASSES AWAY …
Today it comes as a surprise that longtime broadcaster Ed Schultz has died at the age if 64. Media reports state that he dies of “natural causes” as Schultz passed quietly early morning on July 5 at his home in Washington, D.C. I can’t say I agreed with much Ed Schultz had to say, although I can agree that passing away at the age of 64 is far too young. After his show was canceled at MSNBC Schultz joined TT America to produce “The News with Ed Schultz.” As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, Schultz and his new show were criticized by many of his fellow progressives for taking a new positive tone towards both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Republican President Donald Trump. None more evident where I never agreed more with Ed Schultz as he ripped Hillary Clinton a new one for not having the common decency to give her concession speech, but instead prolonging the BS by sending out her campaign chair Podesta instead. Schultz stated, this is the same campaign that was questing Trump to how he would handle the outcome of the election.”
Schultz rips Hillary Clinton for not speaking on election night
Ed Schultz, the longtime broadcaster who churned up the Fargo-Moorhead area airwaves before moving into the national spotlight as a progressive firebrand, died of natural causes Thursday, July 5, at his home in Washington, D.C.
Schultz, the host of “The News With Ed Schultz” on RT America, was 64.
“We at RT America are sad to announce the passing of Edward Andrew Schultz. Ed Schultz passed quietly early morning on July 5 at his home in Washington, D.C. This announcement comes as a shock to all of us here at RT America,” the network said in a statement.
Schultz never shied away from controversy. If anything, he sought it out.
He was a man of contrasts. A political chameleon with a driving ambition. [...]
In 2004, Schultz took his radio show nationwide. Then in 2009, he moved to national television, becoming a prime-time progressive voice on MSNBC through 2015, when his show was dropped.
He started his job at RT America, formerly called Russia Today, in early 2016, hosting the half-hour show “The News With Ed Schultz.”
Schultz, who was critical of Russian President Vladimir Putin while at MSNBC, said when he took the RT job that he didn’t anticipate any problems. “Nobody is going to tell Ed Schultz what to say,” he told The Forum.
FOX News Channel Still the Undisputed King of Cable … Sean Hannity taking the Title of Highest-rated host in Cable News
FNC STILL THE CABLE KING EVEN WITH ALL THE SO-CALLED LIBERAL BLUE WAVE …
The liberal MSM can claim all they want that some how uber-lib Rachel Maddow of MSNBC is on the same level as those at Fox News like Sean Hannity; however, they would be lying and that would be more fake news. The Fox News Channel is #1 and it is not even close. According to Nielsen Media Research for May 2018, FNC was #1 for the 197th consecutive month, and Fox News destroyed its competition, with an average total audience of 2.381 million viewers, compared to MSNBC’s 1.384 million and CNN’s 835,000. Also, Fox News had 10 of the top 15 shows in cable news, with Sean Hannity taking the title of highest-rated host in cable news. Hannity had an average total audience of 3.261 million, followed by MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show (2.627 million), and FNC’s Tucker Carlson Tonight (2.617 million), The Ingraham Angle (2.617 million) and The Five (2.153 million). Keep in mind that FNC completely changed their prime time line up and said good bye to the Bill O’Reilly and Megyn what’s her name and added Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham. They not only did not miss a beat, they got better.
What happened to the rise of MSNBC? After showing historic growth–and a few months in 2017 when Rachel Maddow took the title of most-watched host in all of cable news, beating Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity–the just-released results of the May ratings period look very familiar:Fox News won–everything.
In ratings data released Wednesday by Nielsen Media Research, FNC extended its run of consecutive months at number one to a staggering 197, while building hitting another impressive milestone: Fox News Channel has now beaten every other network in basic cable for 23 months straight, based on total day ratings, with an average total day audience in May of 1.4 million viewers.
In prime time, Fox News destroyed its competition, with an average total audience of 2.381 million viewers, compared to MSNBC’s 1.384 million and CNN’s 835,000.Among viewers 25-54, the group most coveted by advertisers, FNC shook off a challenge in recent months from MSNBC to claim a clear victory: 461,000 viewers, well ahead of MSNBC (329,000) and CNN (265,000).
So how could FNC possible beat all their liberal cable competitors when we have been told there is a “blue wave” of liberal discontent?
The President Donald Trump 2017 Fake News Awards … Liberal Democrat Media Complex Continues Their Bias, False Reporting
SO MANY PEOPLE WANTED TO SEE THIS THAT IT SHUT DOWN THE GOP.GOV SERVERS …
It is the announcement of the much anticipated 2017 President Donald Trump Fake News Awards. Check out the winners below. We have known for years that the MSM was liberal and bias; however, under the Trump presidency they have sunk to new low levels. This is not a matter of news stories that Trump did not like, these are false news stories just made up by the media. The liberal MSM just passes off opinion and their liberal agenda as fact. The #1 fake news story of 2017 was the preposterous one where the New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic victory over Hillary Clinton that the economy would never recover. How ignorant and foolish could one possibly be? Sorry Business Insider, if the news-media industry is in fact governed by a foundational set of ethical standards and doesn’t just write whatever they want to, then none of the stories below would have ever made public. The fact is there is only one standard for the media, pushing their liberal agenda and crafting stories to said agenda.
The media is trusted with First Amendment rights and freedom of speech. This is a great responsibility and not to be used to just provide hit jobs against individuals you do not like. If you dislike the president calling you “fake news” then print the truth. Provide the same media standard you did for Barack Obama to Trump. Because at this point, journalism is pretty much dead in the US.
- The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover. (Never recover, eh? Instead we are witness to a record DOW over 26,000, jogs being created and blacks and Hispanics are all-time record lows in unemployment. What did almost crash the stock markets was the #2 Fake story from Brian Ross.)
- ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.
- CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
- TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.
- Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.
- CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.
- CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.
- CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.
- The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.
- And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!
Why were 90% of news stories negative to President Donald Trump from the media? That hardly took place under 8 years of Obama. Where was the media on the incredibly accomplishments of the United States economy under President Trump like the economy creating nearly 2 million jobs and gained over $8 trillion in wealth since the President’s inauguration, African Americans and Hispanics enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history, the Trump tax cuts and relief for hardworking Americans, the corporate tax cuts that have provided bonuses and other benefits to over 2 million employees to date, Trump’s plan to cut regulations issuing 22 deregulatory actions for every one new regulatory action, the American energy boom by ending Obama-era regulations, approving the Keystone pipeline, auctioning off millions of new acres for energy exploration, and opening up ANWR, the threat of ISIS and their Caliphate being crushed in Iraq and Syria, and so many more.
Remember When Harvey Weinstein Was a Liberal Hero Supporting Hillary Clinton and On MSNBC Morning Joe (VIDEO)
IT WASN’T THAT LONG AGO THAT HARVEY WEINSTEIN WAS A LIBERAL DARLING, AND THEY ALL KNEW …
It was not that long ago that the liberal MSM and the LEFT gushed over Harvey Weinstein. He was the darling of liberals. Democrat politicians went to Weinstein with hat in hand looking for donations and for that they gave him inside access. Harvey Weinstein backed Hillary Clinton and we are to believe that Hillary was “appalled” by the recent allegations when so many knew the real story. Are we supposed to believe Hillary knew nothing about her husband’s affairs either? Hardly.
The problem now is that the rats can’t run fast enough away from the S.S. Weinstein.
Are you kidding, The Morning Schmo has the nerve to act like they didn’t know. Really? MSNBC is reporting that the silence is deafening from Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Democrats and they aren’t also to blame as enablers? This is laughable that they would act like they had no idea. MSNBC is the liberal, LEFT and Hollywood has been in bed with the liberal media for decades. For MSNBC to act like they had no idea about the dirty secrets of Harvey Weinstein is laughable and disingenuous.
Harvey Weinstein instructs Clinton campaign to ‘silence’ Sanders’ BLM message
THE LIBERAL MEDIA DOUBLE STANDARD: WHO THINKS NBC WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME IF THE NAME HARVEY WEINSTEIN WAS REPLACED WITH DONALD TRUMP?
What is worse than fake news? How about news that is knowing not reported to meet an agenda?
The below article below from the HUFFPO regarding Ronan Farrow, an NBC News contributor, had secured an interview with a woman who was willing to appear on camera, in silhouette, her identity concealed, saying that Harvey Weinstein had raped her is even larger than the crime of rape itself. As if sexual assault and rape is not bad enough. But for a news outlet like NBC to knowingly, willfully and purposely spike the Weinstein story because of who he was might be even more heinous. An effort by the liberal MSM to protect their own. Would they have done the same for say, Donald Trump? Hell no! As we all know that NBC News and MSNBC certainly ran with the Billy Bush-Trump tapes. But some how, a raunchy tape of two men disgusting talk about woman is worse than a predator who for decades sexually assaulted women in Hollywood. Really? Everyone knew the truth. They knew the stories were much more than rumors, but the liberal media decided to take part in a systemic quashing of the story for fear one of their own would be outed for the disgusting, POS, predator that he was. SHAME ON YOU NBC.
The NBC peacock is Dead
In mid-August, Ronan Farrow, an NBC News contributor, had secured an interview with a woman who was willing to appear on camera, in silhouette, her identity concealed, and say Harvey Weinstein had raped her, according to four people with close knowledge of the reporting. It was a pivotal moment in a testy, months-long process of reporting a story that had bedeviled a generation of media and Hollywood reporters.
Farrow had a lot of material already. In March, he had acquired a damning and much-coveted audio recording in which Weinstein admits to having groped an Italian model. He had interviews with former executives and assistants who’d worked closely with Weinstein who spoke about the culture of harassment and abuse he perpetrated. And now he had someone ready to accuse Weinstein of rape, on camera.
But at that moment Farrow was also caught in the pincers of an NBC News edict. He had been told by executives at NBC News that he didn’t have enough reporting to go on air with his Weinstein story, according to four sources, and he had been told by the network to stop reporting on it. NBC tried to put a stop to the interview with the woman accusing Weinstein of rape. The network insisted he not use an NBC News crew for the interview, and neither was he to mention his NBC News affiliation. And so that was how Ronan Farrow wound up paying out of his own pocket for a camera crew to film an interview.
As a project for NBC News, Farrow’s story was effectively dead. Later that month, he received permission to take his reporting to another news organization. The story that resulted, published Tuesday by The New Yorker, was a blockbuster: multiple women accusing Weinstein of rape and other sexual misconduct, accompanied by the audio of Weinstein admitting to sexual assault. [...]
Then he struck a rueful tone, suggesting that the NBC iteration of the story had died of natural causes. “We reached a point over the summer where we, as an organization, didn’t feel that we had all the elements that we needed to air,” he said.
Yet interviews with 12 people inside and outside NBC News with direct knowledge of the reporting behind Farrow’s story suggest a different cause of death. All of the sources who spoke to HuffPost asked not to be named, either because they weren’t authorized to speak to the media about the story or because they were fearful of retribution from NBC News executives. These sources detailed a months-long struggle within NBC News during which Oppenheim and other executives slow-walked Farrow’s story, crippling it with their qualms and irresolution.
Toward the end, the concerns seemed to take on a personal tone, and it became difficult to tell where the Weinstein team’s attempts to discredit the story left off and NBC News’ editorial forbearance began. According to multiple sources inside and outside of NBC News who worked on the aborted story, Oppenheim related to Farrow what Weinstein’s lawyers had said in complaint to NBC:
