Ana Navarro: CNN 'very balanced' -- they have 'commentators like me'

On today's episode of The View, Meghan McCain tried valiantly to walk the fine line between criticizing President Trump's choice of words when he called fake news the "enemy of the American people" and at the same time pointing out that, indeed, there appeared to be a significant anti-Trump bias at most mainstream media outlets.

Michael Cohen attorney, and Clinton confidante, Lanny Davis.

When Michael Cohen's lawyer was calling James Comey a deceitful liar, he didn't get much TV time.

Michael Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, is all over the media today because he's released a secretly recorded tape of then-candidate Donald Trump handling a "bimbo eruption." Davis knows all about "bimbo eruptions" because he was part of the Bill Clinton administration which invented the practice of keeping women who had incriminating evidence against a candidate or president quiet and paid-off.

Obama in 2017: Public shaming of Russia over hacking won't do anything

While Democrats, the American media and many Republicans admonish President Trump for not publicly shaming Vladimir Putin Monday in Helsinki over his nation's hacking of political computer systems during the 2016 election, it's helpful to remember what Trump's predecessor did and said about this very issue.

Nunes: 'Ridiculous' Mueller indictment ignores Russian efforts to hack GOP

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) slammed Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 12 Russians accused of hacking activities during the 2016 presidential election because it only focuses on efforts to disrupt operations of Democratic Party campaign apparatuses.

Ben Jealous has a tough time on MSNBC

Dem candidate for Maryland Governor Ben Jealous is too extreme for MSNBC

Democrats in Maryland just nominated a political novice who endorsed Bernie Sanders and championed the Black Lives Matter movement to run against Larry Hogan, the most popular governor in America. Ben Jealous, the former President of the NAACP, defeated the Democrat establishment candidate Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker on a Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders-endorsed platform.

Crowds don't chant 'MSNBC Sucks' and that tells you how Americans view journalism

Despite what many denizens of the greenrooms of cable news outlets and editorial staff meetings at the New York Times and Washington Post might believe, the American people aren't stupid. And the proof is in the amusing "CNN Sucks" chant that accompanies President Trump at his rallies across the nation. Published June 27, 2018

It's Bernie's party now

After Tuesday's stunning primary results is now safe to say that the Democratic Party is the party of Bernie Sanders. In fact, Democrat voters and the Democratic Party's leadership has gone so far from the vision and ideals of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, the founders of the Democratic Republicans which became today's Democratic Party, that they really should now change their name to the Democratic Socialist Party.

Colbert joins mob attacking Sarah Sanders

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was rudely thrown out of a public restaurant this weekend garnering sympathy and support from most Americans with any sense of decency and class. So it's no wonder that late night host Stephen Colbert threw his hat in with the ugly mob set on dividing our nation along partisan political lines. Published June 26, 2018
