    Major rugs being pulled from under those in Halperin deals. GAME CHANGE (2016) book had its publisher back away. HBO cancelled plans for the multi-part TV series. John Heilemann wonders how Shields made it without Yarnell?

    • Lurker

      Anyone watch The Circus S01E26?

      You can see Mark Halperin’s sad worried face as TRUMP keeps winning swing States! LOL

      • homemaker

        And Heilmann’s face when they knew Trump was going to win was absolutely priceless. Woebegone is the word that comes to mind.

        • Larry Kelly

          I seem to recall actual tears.

    • Cecelia

      I know the man has problems and he hurt lots of people, but though I can get a kick out media members giving themselves away with crestfallen faces via Republican election wins, my heart hurts at this sort of personal devastation.

      Call me St. Cecelia. That’s what I make my husband do…

      • Larry Kelly

        I have some sympathy for most anyone whose world crumbles. The inability to control impulses is the most common achilles heel of humanity.

    • Grandpa D

      My up vote is primarily for your remembering Shields and Yarnell.

      • Larry Kelly

        Beat out Wayne and Shuster by only a hair.

        • Grandpa D

          Better than Wayne and Garth.

      SPECIAL REPORT last night saying Trump was going to make stopping China’s exporting of fentanyl to USA a top issue on his upcoming trip.

    • Presbyter

      Is anybody really surprised ?

  • J.J.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Somebody needs to sue Sherman.

  • Mitch Alan

    Shannon Bream says she is still recovering from corneal surgery, and that it is very painful. I must have been lucky because I experienced a minimum of pain. I do have to put eye drops in my eye before going to sleep, that is the only side effect. I did need a deceased person’s cornea transplanted into my eye, so I do have to thank that kind donor, and encourage others to do the same.

    • Larry Kelly

      Been there, done that.

  • J.J.

    Matt Taibbi appears to be the next journalist that will fall over sexual harassment.
    This idiot actually put it all in print and noted at the end that the book was non-fiction.
    Gotta admit I never liked the guy.

    • Larry Kelly

      That makes two of us.

      • Cecelia

        This guy wrote about he and his colleagues being such animals and no one noticed?

        • Larry Kelly

          It’s ROLLLING STONE. They’re supposed to be animals… Or the animals who read it must have thought so.

          • Presbyter

            Isn’t that part of their “ edgy” schtick?

  • I expect that Megyn Kelly’s Today ratings will show a nice bump this week. She’s been hitting the harassment issue pretty heavily and that will dampen the routine attacks she gets from the Fox haters on most days. It should get her more eyeballs too. It just might save her show.

    • Mitch Alan

      Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 28% of American Adults have a favorable opinion of Kelly, a former Fox News anchor who made the switch to NBC News earlier this year. Forty-five percent (45%) have an unfavorable opinion of the current host of “Megyn Kelly Today.”

      Count me with the 45%.

      • TheMightyINB

        Hold on… let me find my surprised face.

  • J.J.

    Breaking on Martha McCallum — Washington Free Beacon funded the early Fusion GPS oppo research on Trump; specifically his business deals. Steele was hired after the DNC took over the funding.

    • Mitch Alan

      Kind of a surprised . I would have guessed Mitt Romney or Bill Kristol.

      • J.J.

        I suspected Jeb! ‘s PAC. They blew through $100 million plus.

        • Mitch Alan

          Very sleazy for the WFB to keep it secret for all of these months.

      • Larry Kelly

        SPECIAL REPORT tonight lead me to believe Kristol is tied in with the Free Beacon.

        • CAC

          Matthew Continetti, editor-in-chief at WFB, is Bill Kristol’s son-in-law.

    • J.J.

      The funny thing about the WFB funding the oppo research is why do you pay your journalists? Isn’t that kind of their job? Why farm out that work?
