Turmoil at CBS News over Trump aide Mick Mulvaney’s punditry gig

Turmoil at CBS News over Trump aide Mick Mulvaney’s punditry gig

CBS News’s decision to hire former Trump administration official Mick Mulvaney as a paid on-air contributor is drawing backlash within the company because of his history of bashing the press and promoting the former president’s fact-free claims. But a top network executive seemed to lay the groundwork for the decision in a staff meeting earlier this month, when he said the network needed to hire more Republicans to prepare for a “likely” Democratic midterm wipeout. “If you look at some of the people that we’ve been hiring on a contributor basis, being able to make sure that we are getting...

In Chicago, a public radio station comes to the rescue of the Sun-Times newspaper

In Chicago, a public radio station comes to the rescue of the Sun-Times newspaper

In an unusual merger that some hope could serve as a national model to preserve local journalism, Chicago’s NPR station plans to acquire one of the city’s major daily newspapers. On Tuesday, the board of directors for Chicago Public Media, the umbrella organization for WBEZ, approved moving forward with the acquisition of the Chicago Sun-Times. The deal is expected to be complete by Jan. 31. Chicago is one of the nation’s largest media markets, and WBEZ — which started in the 1940s as an arm of the Chicago Board of Education — is where some of public radio’s most notable programs were...

A star reporter’s resignation, a racial slur and a newsroom divided: Inside the fallout at the New York Times

A star reporter’s resignation, a racial slur and a newsroom divided: Inside the fallout at the New York Times

ADThe New York Times’s annual “State of the Times” address is usually an opportunity for top brass to brag about the newspaper’s achievements, of which it had last year.But in Thursday’s speech, Executive Editor Dean Baquet tried instead to douse a cultural inferno that has been consuming the Times newsroom for two weeks — ever since the public revelation of a star reporter’s racially offensive comments to schoolchildren.“In our zeal to make a powerful statement about our workplace culture, we ham-handedly said something you rightfully saw as an oversimplification of one of the most...

Lou Dobbs is lashing out at Fox on Twitter for dropping his show

ADLou Dobbs is not taking his cancellation by Fox lying down.On Friday night, the most-watched show on Fox Business Network. No reason was given, though the network repeated a statement from October that it “regularly considers programming changes” and had been planning to “launch new formats as appropriate post-election.”But Dobbs, 75, who is one of the network’s most outspoken allies of former president Donald Trump, has been on something of a tear ever since, retweeting dozens of tweets supporting him, including many that criticize Fox. He even boosted suggesting that Fox News viewers...

Newsmax issues sweeping ‘clarification’ debunking its own coverage of election misinformation

Newsmax issues sweeping ‘clarification’ debunking its own coverage of election misinformation

Lou Dobbs debunks his own claims of election fraud — after a legal demand from Smartmatic

ADSomething surprising happened Friday night on Lou Dobbs’s top-rated show on the Fox Business Network.Dobbs, an opinion host and conservative ally of President Trump who has consistently raged over the past month that the president was robbed of a second term by a rigged election, introduced a segment that calmly debunked several accusations of fraud that Rudolph W. Giuliani and other Trump supporters have lobbed against the election technology company Smartmatic.“There are lots of opinions about the integrity of the election, the irregularities of mail-in voting, of election voting...

Project Veritas’s James O’Keefe crashed a private CNN teleconference. CNN says he may have broken the law.

Project Veritas’s James O’Keefe crashed a private CNN teleconference. CNN says he may have broken the law.

ADOver the last few years, Project Veritas has gathered evidence in an effort to prove that CNN slants its coverage to hurt President Trump. In the past, that has meant surreptitiously of unsuspecting CNN employees talking about the network’s coverage, as well as releasing made by network executives and staffers in editorial meetings. Last year, the conservative group revealed that a contractor hired by CNN as a satellite uplink technician had been a primary “whistleblower” on the effort.But on Tuesday, Project Veritas — an organization that has used deceptive tactics in some of its...

Fox News eyes a future with no White House fandom

Spend a couple hours with Fox News on a typical weeknight, and you may come to see the potential election of Joe Biden as a cataclysm in the making.Prime-time host Laura Ingraham recently warned her viewers of the "Bolsheviks and billionaires" she said were propelling his candidacy. Frequent contributor Dan Bongino called Biden's campaign "the biggest con job in presidential election history." Last week, Sean Hannity sent a camera crew to stake out Biden's house to demand answers about the alleged contents of his son's laptop. Even the network's senior political analyst, Brit Hume, has...

Savannah Guthrie grilled Trump like few others have, taking the heat off NBC for its town hall

Savannah Guthrie grilled Trump like few others have, taking the heat off NBC for its town hall

NBC faced sharp criticism this week for scheduling a Thursday night town hall with President Trump, with even network employees chiding their employer for giving him an hour of airtime — “a free hour of television,” he said, sounding pleased, at a rally earlier that day. Even worse, critics said, it was with Democratic candidate Joe Biden, making voters choose.But despite fears that the event would amount to a free promotion for Trump’s campaign, it ended up being one of the toughest grillings he has faced as president, with questions about white supremacy, covid-19 deaths and his...

The company email promised bonuses. It was a hoax — and Tribune Publishing employees are furious.

The company email promised bonuses. It was a hoax — and Tribune Publishing employees are furious.

Employees of the Tribune Publishing Company were momentarily thrilled Wednesday after they received a company email announcing that they were each getting a bonus of up to $10,000, to “thank you for your ongoing commitment to excellence.”To see how big their bonus would be, they just had to click on a link that … well, that’s when they learned they had failed the test. And there was no bonus at all.The entire charade was Tribune’s effort to test its collective defenses against Internet scams that tempt email recipients to click on a link that has the effect of interfering with computer...
