    Trump meets with Al Gore, then Leonardo DiCaprio. Then there is this — ‘He has a lot of a**holes around him’: Trevor Noah, Daily Show.

    See, not all FAKE NEWS is fake.

  • Larry Kelly

    I’m trying to get a gig on Tucker. Your assignment “CNN and Hitler”, compare and contrast. I’ll offer to come on, report my findings, get beat up.

      It scares me that I seem addicted to tucker’s show……..only thing im daily DVRing.

      • LenInFlux

        He had a great show back in 2007-2008 on MSNBC. Aside from Willie Geist (who was the producer) inserting himself in, Tucker called out the B.S. on both sides during that election and he was the only bright spot on the network.

          Rachel Maddow was a frequent guest.

          • Larry Kelly

            Back when she wasn’t particularly annoying.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Poor Rachel’s little trolley has jumped the tracks.

    • Cecelia

      Isn’t that what Jon Stewart did?

  • Larry Kelly

    Have to disagree with Mr. Concha. If reporters are forbidden to tweet their biases, we will just have to guess. Too much work. Let their lack of discipline on Twitter inform us of their discipline in reporting.

    • Joe Concha

      Man has a point.

      • Larry Kelly

        Got around to watching your appearance with Mr. BIll on my DVR. Great suggestion for a new “killing book”: Jimmy Hoffa. I’d buy that one — even if O’Reily’s claim he knows who did it is hyperbole.

      It’s galling that the same journalists whose twitter feeds are full of left wing nonsense, get a bad case of the sads when they’re accused of being biased to the left. To flat out lie in the face of overwhelming evidence beyond contemptible.

    I can’t believe any “news” org would give this guy a dime……..but if one did…..why am I not shocked it is NBC?

      Cringeworthy. HDTV and magic-fingers quarter-fed no doubt.

  • Larry Kelly

    RIP Ohio’s John Glenn.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      One-fifth of the Keating Five. Sorry, Larry, I have a long memory when it comes to crooked politicians.

      • Larry Kelly

        I forgot all about that. So apparently had every single obituary I saw yesterday. I do remember now McCain as another member and Keating somehow getting doused with flour.
        Glenn was born and raised up to and including college in Cambridge, Ohio, about an hour’s drive from me. My original partner’s son shared an old memory of him as a daily jogger though the neighborhood who when waved at, never failed to wave back.

      Day-amm! I use that daily; have it running in an app all the time. But then, I wondered how they made any money on it.

  • LenInFlux

    Is anyone else having problems with getting the Tucker Carlson video to play?

    • Grandpa D

      Yes. Try right click and “Open Link in New Tab” or hold down shift key and click.
      (Works in Windows; don’t know about Apple products.)

      • LenInFlux

        Thanks!

        Just a side rant – everything worked just fine with Windows 7 and I knew where everything was. Now they go change everything around with Windows 10 and I’m back on a learning curve.

          I have the same problem with the local grocery.
