DOESN’T IT MAKE YOU WONDER WHETHER THE FEUD WAS ALL MADE UP FOR RATINGS?
The faux feud is over, we can all sleep well now. Megyn Kelly has landed a big, no huge, huge interview with Donald Trump after the two have decided to end their feud. You will remember that Trump skipped the FOX News debate over his spat with Megyn Kelly. But, when it comes to the cable channels, its all about the bass, I mean the base and the ratings. And why not, FOX News has pretty much become nothing more than a super PAC for Trump these days. As Hot Air opines, “It’ll be tricky for Kelly to find the right tone.” We shall see how this one goes, then again, this has not been about reporting the news, issues and candidates this election cycle, its been all about the bass, I mean the ratings.
Megyn Kelly has landed a big interview with Donald Trump after the warring pair agreed to end their feud.
Trump will sit for an in-depth interview on Kelly’s special, which airs on Fox on May 17, a source confirmed to Page Six.
The move comes after the pair met for a summit at Trump Tower to make their peace.
The Fox News anchor secretly spent an hour with the Republican presidential candidate on April 13 at the Trump Tower, where they discussed him appearing with her on a TV special.
“Kelly requested a meeting with Mr. Trump, which took place at Trump Tower this morning . . . Kelly has acknowledged in recent interviews that Trump is a fascinating person to cover and has electrified the Republican base,” a Fox rep said in a statement at the time.
Later on the “The Kelly File,” the host said, “Mr. Trump and I discussed the possibility of an interview, and I hope we will have news to announce on that soon.”
In a miraculous transformation of both Trump and Kelly, the two have decided to put their faux differences beside for their futures. But I thought he had no respect for her as a journalist and their was blood coming out of her eyes?
The feud erupted last year after Kelly grilled Trump during the first GOP presidential debate about his tasteless comments regarding women.
“You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals,’” Kelly said. “Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?”
The tough questioning caught Trump off guard. “Honestly, Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry . . . I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably not be, based on the way you have treated me,” he shot back.
Former MLB pitching great Curt Schilling goes off on ESPN after his firing and the Leftist hypocritical double standard at ESPN. Schilling was basically fired for saying why do we have a urinal in a men’s room, if it were not meant for those with a penis. Period, end of story. But thst is not the way it works in today’s political correct world where certain bands of minorities get to act like the thought police and the Gestapo. During his interview Friday with Steven Crowder, Schilling made a rather interesting and profound comment which explains 100% why we all have to deal with such nonsense like this today. Schilling asked, “when did people believe that the world is supposed to conform around them? Instead of you conforming to the world you live in. Or shaping yourself to the world you live in. People now expect the world to shape itself for you.”
Schilling then went on to say, “we have allowed the vocal minority to shut up everyone else.” And thus Curt Schilling was fired from ESPN. So you think, that’s no big deal. But you will think its a big deal when it becomes you.
Retired Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling responded Friday to being fired from ESPN for sharing a controversial meme on transgender bathroom laws, telling conservative personality Steven Crowder that “nothing” he said was transphobic.
“I responded to a Facebook post that someone else had made. I responded to it and my response was basically men’s rooms were clearly designed for men, who stand up when they go pee and women’s rooms were not,” Schilling said. ”Anyway, that turned out to be ‘transphobic.’”
Schilling was fired from EPSN Wednesday after he ignited uproar with a Facebook post about the “basic functionality of men’s and women’s restrooms.” The legendary pitcher told Crowder that the post “wasn’t public,” but said he stood by his message.
“My point was, what the hell was a urinal made for?” he rhetorically asked. “Listen, men’s rooms were made for men to go to the bathroom standing up and women’s rooms were not. … But again, now I became transphobic.”
“Here’s the thing: This is how we have gotten to where we are. We have allowed the vocal minority to shut up everyone else,” Schilling said. “And now it drives all of our political agendas.”
“Here’s the thing: I don’t care — if there was a transgender march down my street to have transgender bathrooms, I wouldn’t go out and watch it and I wouldn’t care that they are having it!” the former Boston Red Sox pitcher said. “I want homeless veterans to have homes. I want orphaned and abused kids to have homes. I want the homeless problem in this country to be solved. There are so many other things that are actually legitimately scary and dangerous, like ISIS.”
MTV plans to put the MUSIC back in MTV …
As reported at the LA Times, What’s old is new: MTV plots a major return to music. Wow, imagine that, MTV finally realizes after a terrible past 25 years of programming that the “M” in MTV actually stands for music. I have to admit and I am about to date myself, I remember the very first day and song that MTV hit TV. How can you forget the music video, Video Killed the Radio Star by the Buggles. In 1981 it was a ground breaking event when a 24 hour music television was born. And yes, I had such a crush on Martha Quinn
Then MTV decided to go the way of the dodo and do everything and anything except music. They had an opportunity to ride the wave and they went the wrong direction. However, for MTV is probably too late and too much innovation has taken place since 1981, because just as Video killed the Radio star, the Internet and social media may have killed MTV.
MTV’s original show
For much of the modern era, the word music in the MTV acronym has been an afterthought, a vestige of an earlier time and identity.
That’s all about to change.
Under the guidance of new President Sean Atkins, the youth network is embarking on a redo that will put music at its center.
With ratings flat or down in a number of time periods, MTV is turning to songs as its savior. The network is prepping a new version of its classic “Unplugged”; a music competition show in the world of hip-hop produced by Mark Burnett; and an L.A.-set live-music series titled “Wonderland.” The last one is MTV’s first such program in about two decades.
Though much of the network’s success this century has come via nonscripted series with little connection to bands (“Jersey Shore,” “The Hills”)–and though original scripted programming remains the rage across much of the cable dial — MTV believes it will fare better by returning to its roots.
“The thing that kept coming back when I first started this job was, ‘Why doesn’t MTV do more music?” Atkins said in an interview. “Music is our muse, our spirit animal. And it’s a great muse to have. So we’re leaning into it.”
Buggles – Video killed the radio star
ESPN is an inclusive company, Really? Only if you think and toe the liberal intolerant line they are …
Remember when ESPN meant Entertainment and Sports Programming Network. It has now become the liberal Entertainment and Sports Politically-correct Network)
ESPN has finally done something that they have wanted to do for quite some time, they have fired ESPN analyst Curt Schilling. At the center of this controversy was a post that showed an overweight man wearing a wig and women’s clothing with parts of the T-shirt cut out to expose his breasts. It says: “LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die.” ESPN has sadly become nothing more than liberal sports TV. If someone voices and opinion or makes a statement against a conservative, that is fine. However, dare go against their liberal values and you face the PC police and get fired. I think Powerline might be on to something, Trump may want to think about adding Schilling to the ticket. A note to all the other networks, you have an opening for sports network programming, take it. Many of us who have been with ESPN from their inception are sick and tired of their politics.
Curt Schilling, a former All-Star pitcher and one of the highest-profile baseball analysts on ESPN, was fired from the network Wednesday, a day after he drew intense criticism for promoting offensive commentary on social media.
Schilling, who had worked for the network since 2010 and most recently offered analysis on “Monday Night Baseball,” was dismissed after sharing a Facebook post this week that appeared to respond to the North Carolina law that bars transgender people from using bathrooms and locker rooms that do not correspond with their birth genders.
The post showed an overweight man wearing a wig and women’s clothing with parts of the T-shirt cut out to expose his breasts. It says: “LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die.”
To that, Schilling added: “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”
“ESPN is an inclusive company,” ESPN said in a statement. “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”
Curt Schilling comments at 38 pitches, The hunt to be offended …
ESPN claims they are an inclusive company, but they are everything but with their liberal intolerance and pandering to political correctness. Imagine inclusive to be defined as only what we believe in. Yup, really inclusive. As Powerline opines, Inclusive? Of course, as Orwell understood, “inclusive” now means exactly the opposite: it means demonizing anyone who dissents from the orthodoxy of the identity-politics left. Like someone who believes human nature is real.The reality is that most individuals in America and viewers of ESPN have the same common sense beliefs about bathrooms. So maybe the Entertainment Sports Programming Network that has become way over the top liberal is saying that 95% of their viewership should be fired too and go elsewhere? You will remember, this is the same sports channel that recently gave
Bruce Caitlyn Jenner the Arthur Ashe Courage Award over other more deserved individuals. They previous year ESPN gave the same award to Michael Sam. Hmm, I am sensing a trend here. And this is also the same PC-inclusive company that reprimanded the same Curt Schilling over calling Muslim extremists, Nazis. You mean they are not?
Daily Commentary – Wednesday, April 13, 2016 – Politics Aside, What Do You Think of the 2016 Presidential Race Coverage?
- One thing for sure is if a news station says something bad about Trump, he lashes back by saying they are a lousy news station. Trump also says he’s bringing their ratings up which is true!

Trump whining About Losing in Colorado … Blames Everyone But Himself … Educate Yourself as to Why Trump Lost
WAKE UP AMERICA … DONALD TRUMP NOW WHINING ABOUT LOSING COLORADO … HE’S STARTING TO SOUND LIKE A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT.
Sorry, but I am getting really tired of Donald Trump’s act. He is beginning to make it almost impossible to like him, even if he wins. Trump is the epitome of a sore loser. When he wins everything is great, the people are great and he loves all the people of the state that some how voted for him and did not see through his act. However, when he loses … the process is unfair, its rigged and he was screwed out of votes. REALLY?
Such was the case in Colorado where Trump lost to Cruz in a major way. Trump lost his mind because he lost and has no one to blame but himself. If you don’t know the rules of a primary, don’t bother to care to know them and don’t even have a presence in a state, what the hell do you expect to happen? With all the whining that Trump has done when he loses about things not being fair, he is beginning to sound like a liberal. Of course Trump had no issue where he gained less than 50% of the vote in South Carolina or Florida and won all the delegates. So when the rules benefit Trump is a happy camper and when they do not, he’s a whiner. Wake up folks.
Take a good listen to an interview with Conservative radio host Mark Levin and US Congressman Ken Buck from Colorado.
Buck, who knows the system inside and out, explained to Levin why voters were not disenfranchised as Trump is suggesting and why there is no fury about the process.
Buck explained that the caucus process for Colorado has been for a long time that voters would make a non-binding straw vote. Delegates were not bound by the vote to any candidate.
However four years ago a national rule changed by the RNC that would have bound the delegates to a candidate by the vote. So the central committee in Colorado met last fall and decided to abandon the straw vote because they didn’t want delegates bound at that stage.
Buck said the last time they had a straw poll in Colorado, Rick Santorum won, but by the time they got to the convention he was no longer in the race. So if they had done what the RNC wanted, they were worried the delegates would be bound to a candidate no longer in the race.
One point that Buck made was that 40% of the delegates at the state assembly and at each of the congressional district assemblies were new voters. They had never been through this process before but they figured it out. He said they showed up at their caucus, felt strongly about Ted Cruz, got elected to the county assembly, then the state assembly and then cast their votes for the candidate. Meaning, this is not an exclusive process, but a very inclusive process.
Buck said up until a week before the state assembly, Trump had no presence in the state. And Trump chose not to speak at the convention, even though he was encouraged to do so

Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski Charged With simple Battery of Former Breitbart Reporter Michelle Fields (VIDEO)
CRIME OR OR POLITICAL TRUMPED UP CHARGES?
The Jupiter, Florida Police Department have arrested and charged Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski with simple battery of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields. I am not to sure about this. Michelle Fields, then with the online Breitbart News Service, alleges that Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski forcefully grabbed her at a news conference at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter. It is hard to believe that anyone would pursue this. It just does not appear that there was any malice or intent here. Wow, talk about your “trumped” up charges. Lewandowski was issued a notice to appear on a misdemeanor battery charge. The New York City resident is expected in Palm Beach County Circuit Court May 4. I will be the first to go after anyone who assaults a female, or anyone for that matter. If this is the new bar that is set, I can only hope that Jupiter, FL has no stores open on “Black Friday”.
More at Legal Insurrection.
Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was arrested and charged in Jupiter, Florida, with simple battery of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, according to police.
The Jupiter Police Department told CNN that Lewandowski was arrested Tuesday morning after turning himself in on the misdemeanor charge of simple battery.
They said Lewandowski has been released and his initial court appearance is scheduled for May 4. The department also released new video that shows the alleged incident from an overhead angle.
Campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks and one of Lewandowski’s lawyers, Scott Richardson, both released a statement Tuesday saying Lewandowski is “absolutely innocent of this charge,” and will plead not guilty.
“He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court. He is completely confident that he will be exonerated,” the statement said.
“Now the Corey Lewandowski situation, it’s, it’s kind of strange, the media cannot get enough of this. I mean CNN I think has been doing this for half an hour already. And all there is to this is this. Lewandowski has been charged, and there are two schools of thought. Some people say that he has not been arrested he has instead been served with an order to appear. So it’s, it’s not technically an arrest but it is a written order to appear in court on a certain day. And that’s where you essentially are arraigned, you enter your plea, and then they go from there. Now the Jupiter Police, however are saying he has been arrested. So there is some linguistics disparity here. But it is a misdemeanor. The maximum statutory penalties for what Lewandowski has been charged with, maximum one year behind bars, maximum one year probation. Either or. And or. And then whatever fines might be added to this as well. Now given that this would be a first offense.. You know you don’t know the political makeup of the prosecutor’s office, I mean there’s all kinds of factors that will weigh in on this. And of course Lewandowski’s gonna plead not guilty, which means it’s going to require proof on the part of the accusers.
“In my wildest dreams I don’t see how a jury ever convicts on this with all the ambiguity. In fact, it looks like two Secret Service who were protecting Donald Trump are reaching for her. I don’t know whether or not that is what is provoking the bruises or not. That’s the problem. Here’s your reasonable doubt right there.”
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Tuesday threatened to press charges against former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, claiming she grabbed him after a press conference.
“Victory press conference was over. Why is she allowed to grab me and shout questions? Can I press charges?” Trump tweeted Tuesday with a photo.
Univision Debate Moderator Jorge Ramos asks Hillary Clinton if She Will Drop Out of the Campaign, “If You get Indicted, will you Drop Out?” (VIDEO)
WOW, HAVE TO GIVE JORGE RAMOS CREDIT .. HE ASKED THE QUESTION THAT THE REST OF THE GUTLESS MSM HAS BEEN AFRAID TO ASK CLINTON …
Univision Debate Moderator Jorge Ramos went there last night and actually asked the question that the rest of the gutless MSM, including FOX News, has been unwilling and afraid to ask … “If You get Indicted, will you Drop Out?”
It was quite the uncomfortable moment in the Democrat debate for Hillary Clinton as she tried to laugh off the question and then not really answer it. She actually dismissed the question. Really Hillary? There are between 100-150 FBI agents working on your private email scandal and crimes and you are so flipped about it. She responded to Ramos by saying, “That is not going to happen. I’m not even answering that question.”
Univision debate moderator Jorge Ramos confronted Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday over her email scandal, directly asking her if she would drop out of the race for her party’s nomination if she were indicted.
“If you get indicted, will you drop out?” he asked her.
The former secretary of state refused to answer the question.
“Oh, for goodness,” she started when Ramos pressed her on the issue after she initially danced around it. “It’s not going to happen. I’m not even answering that question.”
And you hear the clapping of the sycophants in the audience when Hillary gave her lie-packed answers that everyone did it. Really? Everyone had a private email server in their bathroom? Imagine how the crowd would be reacting if it were a Republican who had done the same thing. Last time I checked Hillary, 150 FBI agents were not investigating any other past Secretary of States. ONLY YOU!
Let’s see if she’s laughing when the FBI brings down their decision.
