      Interesting.

      Lee Smith makes the point that FusionGPS offers up a form of quid pro quo to the the story hungry media in that their product comes as packaged as those delivery meal services.

      A complete kit, served up with dubious sources, polls, statistics, etc.

  • Larry Kelly

    CNN overfeeds the fish in its pond with deception.

    • Cecelia

      And engendered every sort of pseudo news commentary from our fake new media, from Trump as impatient boor, to his cruelty, to Trump senility.

      The most over-the-top ridiculous tweet was from John Podhoreitz tweeting that this was a rare example of deception from CNN.

  • Minnesota Nice

    You have to wonder at this point is CNN deliberately misleading it’s Trump coverage to get a rise out of people including Trump. Zucker probably thinks that any publicity whether negative or positive is good for CNN. Perhaps they have embraced being truly Fake News.

    Showtime is producing “SMILF”! Triggering another War on Women? The foe-toe of Rosie O´Hag looks like she rolled out of a garbage truck! The funny part is her role is that of a crazy/deranged grandmother. She won´t have to lift the bar too far. Absolutely ridiculous and insulting! Sheesh.

    • Cecelia

      That sounds like the arch-enemies of Smerfs.

    • Saintsfan720

      Am going to really show my age here. But, I still remember Rosie O’Donnell as a contestant on Ed McMahon’s “Star Search” in the 80’s. She did very well as I recall. Her 1990’s era talk show was a great alternative to the Ricki Lake/Sally Jesse/Jenny Jones junk overtaking daytime TV back then. If she would get off politics and go back to comedy, her career would take off again. Sad.

        My aunt and uncle had a cottage on Ricki Lake.

        • Larry Kelly

          Jason Voorhees died at the camp there.

      • Larry Kelly

        Rosie was “the queen of nice” until she wasn’t.

  • Re: “Video: Joe and Judith analyze how the media debate gun control”: The formula for gun control that Democrats want:
    Democratic president + Democratic-controlled House + Democratic-controlled Senate.

    There is no other way. It is a waste of time and energy to urge Republican leaders to do Democratic things, and to do them “NOW.” Get back the House and Senate next year, then vote for TBD against Trump in 2020. Then, and only then, will you have gun control and all the other items on the wish list. As Tom O’Connor bellows after Greg Gutfeld’s monologue, “PERIOD!”

    • Cecelia

      Actually, we’ve lived that scenario and the Dems didn’t try it.

      Notice too that the media doesn’t insist that pols with (D) after their names take bold stands supporting gun control in general elections.

      They only insist on that during party primaries.

  • Larry Kelly

    Leftist, atheist, CNN fan… will FBI add that to their terrorists profile?

    Taped Hannity beats Maddow Friday 11/3 –

    Hannity 3,180,000 viewers / 569,000 in 25-54 demo
    Maddow 2,657,000 viewers / 544,000 in 25-54 demo

    • J.J.

      Yep. Surprised that a taped Hannity held on and edged Maddow by 25k in the demo.
      If he can get away with it, I’d bet we will see Hannity go back to taping more nights than just Friday.

    Fox News proves once gain why it’s the cable news leader. Last evening Fox News was live until midnight, yet CNN and MSNBC choose to go to pre-taped programming.

    • I drifted off to sleep at some point but I believe they were still live at 1am.

    • J.J.

      I was watching MSNBC and the host kept apologizing that they had to push back their Trump/Russia conspiracy a few hours. They ended up running it at 10pm est.

      CNN dropped live coverage at 9pm est with Anthony Bourdain eating weird food and waxing poetic with some leftist.

    • sky303

      Nothing stops Anthony Bourdain…

      • Larry Kelly

        maybe a rancid worm or two.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Or Sam and Ella.

  • Larry Kelly

    Disney owns too damn much already.

    • sky303

      I’m sorry but saying “Disney owns too much” or any variant of is a registered copyright of the Walt Disney Company probably.

      • Larry Kelly

        But, on the other hand, 21CF presently has movie rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises. Combine those with Disney’s Star Wars and Marvel, and you now have an extremely attractive entertainment library. Wanna see Captain America fight Magneto AND Jabba the Hutt? MCU fans can only drool.

    Once again, and it has happened way to often in these mass shootings, existing laws would have kept the assailant from purchasing his weapons if government employees just did their jobs: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/06/us/texas-shooting-church.html?smprod=nytcore-ipad&smid=nytcore-ipad-share

      Wouldn’t it be nice if Obama can’t go away, he could at least keep his damn mouth shut?

      • Cecelia

        The Bushes certainly did that for him.

        But not for that gauche guy…

        • Larry Kelly

          Well, Obama never revealed Jeb was low energy.
