Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) Says About Media & Fake News …I Have ‘Newfound Empathy’ for President Trump

IMAGINE THAT, AN ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN HAS THE LIBERAL MSM TURN ON THEM AND NOW THEY CAN EMPATHIZE WITH TRUMP?

As reported at The Hill, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) stated that he had a “newfound empathy” for President Donald Trump after the MSM that had been so kind to him in the past, turned on him as he received his own brand of fake new coverage. The fake news charge was in reference to the so-called “Corker kickback” that was alleged by the liberal MSM and the LEFT. Of course it was false and categorically denied by Sen. Corker. But what else would you expect the LEFT to do but lie? However, it is better late than never that Corker, who has feuded with Trump over the past year, that Corker now knows what it feels like to walk for one second in the shoes of President Donald Trump. Maybe Republicans, especially RINO’s and establishment Republicans will now understand where the MSM’s allegiance really lay.

Sorry LEFT, you must mean the Corn Husker kickback and Landrieu Louisiana Purchase for Democrat payoffs to pass Obamacare.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said Thursday he has “newfound empathy” for President Trump after a report he benefited from a provision in the final GOP tax bill went viral.

“I told (Trump) that I’d had a healthy respect for the media and I deal with them all the time, and, you know, to attack the media has not been something I’ve done,” Corker said on Fox News.

“I’ve never ever in my life used the work ‘fake news’ until today. I actually understand what it is the president has been dealing with,” he continued.

Corker was responding to a story first reported by International Business Times and picked up by other outlets that a provision added to the tax bill during the reconciliation process would directly benefit those with real estate holdings, like Corker.

Corker said he was unaware of the provision, and said it was included in the House version of the bill then included in the final version submitted from a conference committee.

Corker said he spoke with Trump on Wednesday about his “newfound empathy” for the president, who has frequently singled out news outlets for their reporting and labeled them “fake news.”

“He just mentioned that he’d been dealing with this for over a year, and look, I’m sorry I’ve witnessed it firsthand, it is not good,” Corker said. “I know other people have witnessed the same. I have a newfound empathy for what he and others have been dealing with this in this regard.

The Ingraham Angle: 12/19/17 – Discusses Trump & the Media

Laura Ingraham discusses the liberal media and their bias against President Donald Trump …

The media bias has been against Trump from the outset, what is going to happen when the people start to pay attention again and look at ISIS caliphate destroyed, the economy, the jobs, tax cuts and driving black and Hispanic unemployment to all-time lows isn’t a good thing, what is?

PBS Suspends ‘Tavis Smiley’ Following Sexual Misconduct Investigation

AND ANOTHER …

Variety is reporting that PBS has suspended late-night talk show “Tavis Smiley” amid misconduct allegations. This is the second PBS host in as many months to be accused of sexual misconduct. PBS cut ties with longtime host Charlie Rose in November over allegations he sexually harassed several women. According to Variety sources, the investigation found credible allegations that Smiley had engaged in sexual relationships with multiple subordinates.

Tavis Smiley

PBS has suspended late-night talk show “Tavis Smiley” amid misconduct allegations against its host and namesake.

“Effective today, PBS has indefinitely suspended distribution of ‘Tavis Smiley,’ produced by TS Media, an independent production company,” the public broadcaster said. “PBS engaged an outside law firm to conduct an investigation immediately after learning of troubling allegations regarding Mr. Smiley. This investigation included interviews with witnesses as well as with Mr. Smiley. The inquiry uncovered multiple, credible allegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS, and the totality of this information led to today’s decision.”

Sources close to the production told Variety that PBS hired attorney Sarah Taylor Wirtz of the firm MSK to oversee an investigation into Smiley’s behavior after receiving allegations of misconduct by Smiley, who hosts and produces the talk show. Wirtz declined Variety‘s request for comment. According to sources, MSK took reports from 10 witnesses, a mix of men and women of different races and employment levels in Smiley’s organization, most of them former staffers.

The investigation found credible allegations that Smiley had engaged in sexual relationships with multiple subordinates, sources said. Some witnesses interviewed expressed concern that their employment status was linked to the status of a sexual relationship with Smiley. In general, witnesses described Smiley as creating a verbally abusive and threatening environment that went beyond what could be expected in a typical high-pressure work environment. Several expressed concerns about retaliation.

Tavis Smiley responds to allegations on Facebook:

On the eve of the 15th season and 3,000th episode of my nightly talk show, I was as shocked as anyone else by PBS’ announcement today. Variety knew before I did.

I have the utmost respect for women and celebrate the courage of those who have come forth to tell their truth. To be clear, I have never groped, coerced, or exposed myself inappropriately to any workplace colleague in my entire broadcast career, covering 6 networks over 30 years.

Never. Ever. Never.

PBS launched a so-called investigation of me without ever informing me. I learned of the investigation when former staffers started contacting me to share the uncomfortable experience of receiving a phone call from a stranger asking whether, I had ever done anything to make them uncomfortable, and if they could provide other names of persons to call. After 14 seasons, that’s how I learned of this inquiry, from the streets.

Only after being threatened with a lawsuit, did PBS investigators reluctantly agree to interview me for three hours.

If having a consensual relationship with a colleague years ago is the stuff that leads to this kind of public humiliation and personal destruction, heaven help us.

“Christmas Comes Early!” … CNN Will Not Be Attending This Year’s White House Christmas Party

YES VIRGINIA, THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS, CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY AND GOOD RIDDANCE …

As reported at The Politico, CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party. I am sure Presidential Donald Trump is going to lose sleep over this. Maybe CNN will have more time now instead of attending the party to edit their news to make sure it is not fake. In response to CNN’s non-attendance, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted Tuesday night, “Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN.” They are only hurting themselves and further proving they are not a news organization by taking things so personally. CNN is becoming less and less relevant every day.

Tweet Sarah Sanders CNN Xmas

Adding fuel to its growing feud with President Donald Trump, CNN told POLITICO it will be boycotting the White House Christmas party for the media this year.

“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”

The annual event, scheduled for Friday at 2 p.m., is typically seen as a time when reporters and their bosses can mingle freely with administration members, but Trump’s posture toward the press has been uniquely aggressive.

Since Trump began his run for office, CNN has been one of his favorite targets. He has often criticized the network as “fake news” and alleged that the network makes up stories.

In response to this news, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted Tuesday night, “Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN.”
