    CNN's Acosta: Americans Are Wondering If President Trump Is Secretly A White Nationalist. CNN's Jim Acosta talked about the tussle he had Tuesday afternoon with President Trump in the Oval Office over the migrant caravan crisis in an appearance on 'Anderson Cooper 360.' Acosta grilled the president on his claim that Middle Easterners are in the caravan. Acosta said just because there may be Middle Easterners traveling in the caravan, "it doesn't necessarily mean" there are terrorists among them. He lamented, once again, that the president and vice president may be offended Middle Eastern Americans who are "peace-loving people." "T...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Walt Disney Co’s ABC network on Tuesday swiftly canceled the popular U.S. television comedy “Roseanne” after star Roseanne Barr incited outrage by comparing a black former Obama administration official to an ape in remarks on Twitter. The show, a revival of the 1990s hit “Roseanne,” was ABC’s most widely watched primetime show for the TV season that ended last week. President Donald Trump has cited its huge viewership as evidence his supporters, who include Barr, want shows that speak to their concerns. “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided ...

    As adult-film actress Stormy Daniels looked on, a federal judge ordered President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen to disclose the name of a client he had hoped to keep secret: Sean Hannity. Michael Cohen, Trump’s fiercely loyal and pugnacious lawyer, disclosed Hannity’s name through one of his own lawyers at the order of the judge. Stormy Daniels, an adult-film actress who says she had a sexual encounter with Trump, watched from the public gallery. Daniels, in a separate civil case, is fighting a 2016 non-disclosure agreement arranged by Cohen in which she got $130,000 to stop her from discussing her claim she had sex ...

    The right-wing propaganda giant Fox News host Laura Ingraham's put-down of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg as a whiny high school kid has prompted him to mount something more potent than a whine — a call for an ad boycott, which has already claimed one victory. Nutrish pet food said in a statement Thursday that it is pulling its ads from The Ingraham Angle because "the comments she has made are not consistent with how we feel people should be treated." <blockquote><img alt="Fox_host_faces_ad_boycott_after_bullying_parkland_student" src="/system/images/22047/original/Fox_Host_Faces_Ad_Boycott_After_Bullying_Parkland_Student.jpg?...

    Don Lemon says Donald Trump’s reported comments about “sh—hole countries” didn’t leave him outraged because he “already knew” the president was “racist.” Opening Thursday’s CNN Tonight, Lemon declared, “The president of the United States is racist. A lot of us already knew that.” According to The Washington Post, during a meeting with lawmakers to discuss protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and several African countries, Trump remarked, “Why are we having all these people from sh–hole countries come here?” “I have to admit, I was not shocked that Donald Trump reportedly called the majority of<a href="http://www.global-...

    LOS ANGELES — Host Seth Meyers came out swinging at the Golden Globes Sunday night, directly addressing in his monologue the issues of sexual harassment and gender inequality that have roiled the industry for months. He lobbed hard-hitting jokes at Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen and, of course, President Donald Trump. Meyers also acknowledged the awkwardness of a straight white male hosting the show on this particular night. He ended the monologue on a sincere note, “People in this room worked really hard to get here, but it’s clearer now than ever before that the women had to work even harder.

On Wednesday night, she pretty much came right out and admitted that the network’s relentless coverage of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server is a response to the rest of the media’s coverage of the Donald Trump campaign’s Russia scandal. <strong><i>“How about we make a deal. How about when the mainstream media stops covering Russia day in and day out, maybe we can drop the Hillary email scandal,” she offered on Sean Hannity’s show. “But until then, I think I’m going to stay on it.” </i></strong> she...

The yet-to-be-titled 10-episode series will make its debut in the fall, the cable network said on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON — Two television hosts assailed by Donald Trump questioned his mental health on Friday and charged that the White House had tried unsuccessfully to get them to apologize to the president for unfavorable coverage in exchange for his getting a negative tabloid story about them killed. "He appears to have a fragile, impetuous, child-like ego that we've seen over and over again, especially with women," Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," said on the program. "He attacks women because he fears women," added co-host Joe Scarborough, a former Republican U.S. congressman. Brzezinski and Scarborough fired back on ...

Dan Bidondi, who identified himself as a reporter for the website that hawks extremist views and fake news, arrived with a video camera at the municipal center of Newtown, Connecticut, to cover a routine Board of Education meeting. Bidondi wasn't interested in hearing how a New England hamlet of 27,000 was dealing with bus schedules or budget priorities. Instead, he was there to give a man from Florida a platform upon which to express his delirious beliefs. Wolfgang Halbig and a bevy of followers, including a man clad in 18th-century patriot garb, showed up to bully community lead...

    Stephen Colbert opened his show on Wednesday night by addressing Fox News’ firing of Bill O’Reilly, the man who served as the inspiration for the “Stephen Colbert” conservative pundit character who spent almost a decade hosting The Colbert Report. “Bill and I did not see eye to eye on… anything,” Colbert said during his Late Show monologue Wednesday night after announcing the news to his audience. “I’ve done my fair share of jokes about him,” he continued, noting that he also once stole O’Reilly’s microwave, which he ultimately auctioned off to benefit wounded soldiers. But the host insisted, “I take no pleasure in his downfall.” ...

I’ll try to sort through the substance of all this. But I also want to make a broader argument about how Trump’s support system — inside his government but especially in the conservative media and on Fox, which is where he apparently gets most of his intelligence information — is playing to his worst instincts, harming him politically, and maki...
