CNN’s Jake Tapper confirmed today that the Michael Cohen named in the recently released and unverifiable BuzzFeed documents did not visit Russia as the documents claimed. Tapper confirmed on CNN news this morning that the man identified as Cohen in the unverified documents is not the same Michael Cohen who is President-elect Donald Trump’s special counsel. Trump’s Cohen has already denied the claim he visited Russia. (Snip) Tapper also said CNN had earlier declined to report on the allegations because they could not confirm the claims.
Comments: Is that supposed to get them off the hook for reporting those lies? It is just stunning the contortions Tapper goes through, even going so far to say that they had not reported this earlier because they couldn´t confirm the allegations. Of course the obvious huuuge question is why did they go ahead with it?? Tapper should suffer mightily for that journalistic malpractice. Everyone at CNN should be utterly and completely ashamed of themselves. If they had any credibility it is now gone. The behavior of those at Buzzfeed is not surprising but extremely dangerous.
Tapper has gone over to the dark side. And as far as cable fees go, MSNBC made money in their afternoon lineup, even though few viewers wanted to watch Dylan Farrow, Joy Reid, Tore, and Al Sharpton. They must have been embarrassed by the lineup.
I have heard some reports, none of which I have verified, that Tapper is a liar out to get Trump anyway he can, and that Tapper has some questionable sexual relationships, very embarassing, but again which I have not verified, but am mentioning only to get it out there, so it can be examined by other, more responsible people. Perhaps, McCain can take this to the FBI to look at.
Do you remember those partisan slimeballs dancing early in the night they thought Hillary was going to be elected?? LOL now they are even more of a LAUGHINGSTOCK!! They reported a kid´s HOAX on some loser-trollsite as if it was true.
Hey, Joke Tapper, you know it´s hard to put toothpaste back in a tube once you squeezed it out, don´t you? CNN has stepped over any reasonable responsibility to be a news agency. Ban them from the press room. Let them read wire copy. (If they can read).
The show, based in New York, will take over the 4-5 PM ET timeslot, replacing the 4 PM edition of MSNBC Live currently hosted by political correspondent Steve Kornacki. As host, Wallace will tackle the latest political developments and conduct newsmaker interviews, according to the network. MSNBC says Kornacki “will continue his presence in the hour, providing in-depth discussion and analysis.” (Snip) “Nicolle played a huge role for us during the presidential election and through the first 100 days. We’re thrilled she’s stepping into this spot with Steve at her side,” said Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC. “Nicolle and Steve
Milo Yiannopolous has been quiet since the University of California Berkeley practically burned down its own campus to prevent him from speaking, but the self-described “media sensation, conservative celebrity and youth culture icon” says he’s spent the last few months forming up a major media conglomerate and he’s ready to take on political correctness in a big way. (Snip) “I will spend every waking moment of the rest of my life making the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists and other professional victims a living hell,” Milo said in a statement on Facebook. “Free speech is
Popular 90s comedy series Roseanne will be the latest hit show set to return to TV, two decades after going off the air. An eight-episode limited series revival of the highly-rated ABC blue-collar family comedy is in the works, Deadline reports, with Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert and other key cast members reprising their roles. The Golden Globe and Emmy-winning working-class comedy series quickly became a cult classic in its nine-season run between 1988 to 1997. While no network has yet been set for the revival, ABC and Netflix are reported to be the top choices. Netflix could be an attractive option
ATLANTA — Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. on Friday issued criticism that spanned the political spectrum, telling gun-rights activists that “rat bastards on the left” never give up while also saying some of the misadventures of the GOP-led Congress can be “very painful” to watch. “We won a huge battle last November, but we did not win the war,” Sheriff Clarke said at the NRA lobbying arm’s 2017 Leadership Forum. “You see, our fight for freedom continues in earnest.” (Snip) “You see, for them defeat is never final. Election defeats don’t matter,” he said. “It’s simply a
North Korea launched a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan on Friday, but the missile "broke up in flight" and has been deemed a failure, two U.S. officials have confirmed to Fox News. The missile has been assessed to be a KN-17, a former Scud missile that officials believe is being tested to one day target ships. It flew roughly 25 miles and was in the air for about 15 minutes, officials tell Fox News. The KN-17 was launched from Pukchang. A White House official told Fox News that the U.S. is not suprised by this latest test, nor the fact that it failed. The White House is watching the situation closely and consulting with
Dr. Salomon Melgen was convicted on Friday for wrongfully billing the government more than $100 million in improper Medicare payments, the Palm Beach Post reported. A West Palm Beach, Florida jury found Melgen guilty of 67 counts of Medicare fraud after a trial that lasted about two months, followed by three days of deliberations. Prosecutors said that Melgen, an eye doctor, intentionally misdiagnosed patients in order to charge high prices to Medicare. (Snip) Dr. Melgen is also considered a major player in the corruption case of Senator Robert Menendez, which is scheduled to go to trial this fall. Sen. Menendez, a
For U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Adam Wylie, "Emra" -- the 9-year-old Belgian Malinois he was forced to leave behind in South Korea -- was more than a service dog. The canine filled the void of family when Wylie, a 12-year veteran of the armed forces, was deployed from 2012 to 2014 in South Korea where he was stationed around Osan Air Base. "She meant the world to me," Wylie, 33, told Fox News. The two -- separated for three years -- were reunited April 20 in Cincinnati in a heartwarming reunion that at first seemed improbable. Emra had retired
WASHINGTON – Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said he hopes the Trump administration begins to “move back to a regular process” and “normalize” the admission of refugees into the United States. Over the Easter recess, Corker and Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) visited the Bidi Bidi refugee camp in Uganda, which houses about 270,000 people who fled the civil war in South Sudan. Corker was asked if he has recommendations for the Trump administration on refugees after his experience on the trip. “It’s my hope that what they’re going to do is go through a process of, as they’ve already
Governor of Ohio John Kasich urged Donald Trump to “take out” the top leadership in North Korea in order to solve the looming nuclear weapon problem. “We are getting very serious that they cannot have an ICBM. There’s a point at which saber-rattling is not effective, and you have to be very careful on how you approach that,” Kasich said at the Monitor Breakfast in Washington Friday. “I think you have to be careful that you get to a certain point. What do I think is going to happen there? I think the THAAD is the first big leverage I’ve
Former President Obama said at a private event Thursday that his signature healthcare legislation is more popular than President Trump, jabbing at his successor for trying to repeal his signature legislation, according to CNN. Paraphrasing Obama, an attendee reportedly said the former president told the New York crowd that "The Affordable Care Act has never been more popular — and it´s more popular than the current president." Trump has had historically low approval ratings, with a recent CNN poll showing that after about 100 days in office, just 44 percent approve of Trump´s work as president. The same survey showed
Baltimore’s mayor asked the FBI to send in reinforcements Wednesday to help the city get its murders under control. Mayor Catherine Pugh, speaking at a news conference, explained she went to the FBI’s Baltimore office for extra agents to join with police officers in combating a skyrocketing murder count, reports CNN. “Murder is out of control. There are too many guns on the streets. We’re looking for all the help we can get,” Pugh said. The city already has 101 murders for the year, a number not seen in almost 20 years. The mayor’s spokesperson warned the violence could rise
US media reports that Ivanka Trump was booed in Germany are false, according to German paper Bild. (Snip) “US media, however, are focusing on something else: they claim that Ivanka was booed and sneered at.” According to the paper, there was “some unrest” in the audience, but nothing like US media outlets reported. CNN reported that Ivanka was booed and hissed by the crowd when she defended her father.”Ivanka Trump Got Jeered in Germany, and Late Night Joins In,” wrote The New York Times. Time Magazine devoted not one but two stories to pushing the narrative that Ivanka was booed. The
White House reporters launched a hard-hitting attack on Donald Trump Saturday at the annual Correspondents´ Association dinner - which the President pointedly snubbed. The president of the White House Correspondents Association, Jeff Mason, used the get-together at the Washington Hilton to strongly criticize a president who has used his first 100 days of power as an opportunity to attack the media. The absence of President Donald Trump, who has called the media ´fake,´ ´dishonest´ and even ´the enemy of the people,´ marks the first time a president has declined since Ronald Reagan in 1981, who was, at the time, recovering
He has floated some conspiracy theories for years, but now President Donald Trump will get to play a crucial role in the long-running saga over the government´s Kennedy assassination records. The 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, signed by President George H.W. Bush, set a 25-year timetable for declassification of assassination records dealing with President Kennedy. The law set up a single collection of records at the National Archives, and set up a process for declassification. The law required the release of all government records dealing with the assassination within 25 years – with the exception of those the president certifies for
When someone is honestly 55 percent right, that’s very good and there’s no use wrangling. And if someone is 60 percent right, it’s wonderful, it’s great luck, and let him thank God. But what’s to be said about 75 percent right? Wise people say this is suspicious. Well, and what about 100 percent right? Whoever says he’s 100 percent right is a fanatic, a thug, and the worst kind of rascal. — An old Jew of Galicia In the final stretch of last year’s presidential race, Hillary Clinton and her team thought they were, if not 100 percent right, then very close.
New york - Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House. Freelance journalist Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for Russian news outlet Sputnik, posed for a picture behind the podium in the White House briefing room. In the photo, they are making a hand sign that can be used to signify “white power.” “Just two people doing a white power hand gesture in the White House,” Fusion senior reporter Emma Roller tweeted, alongside a screenshot of the picture.
Washington- Political analyst David Gergen delivered a harsh critique of President Trump´s campaign-style rally Saturday night in an appearance on CNN´s "Newsroom." "To bring your campaign speech into the presidency is something presidents rarely do," said Gergen, who has been a White House adviser to four presidents. "This was the most divisive speech I´ve ever heard from a sitting American president." Trump´s delivered a rousing address to a crowd of supporters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania instead of attending the White House Correspondents´ Association dinner in Washington. The nearly-hour long speech began with attacks on the press and covered his tax plan,
Muslim reformer Zuhdi Jasser has recently attacked leaders of the anti-Jihad movement in America. He equated them with jihadists when he called them the derogatory word, alt-jihadists, meaning that Americans who speak and write against the evils of Islamic jihad and sharia are just as bad as jihadists. (snip)I have always respected what Zuhdi Jasser was trying to do and avoided contradicting him in public, even though I do not believe that Islam is reformable. I have kept my opinion to myself regarding the false hope Muslim reformers are giving to the Americans regarding Islam. But when Jasser attacked leaders
President Donald Trump has racked up an historic amount of travel expenses in his first 100 days in office, by far surpassing the president who came before him. Mr Trump has made a point of repeatedly visiting his private Mar-a-Lago resort and golf course, which he and his administration have referred to as the “winter White House,” on the weekends. Those Florida trips require a nearly 1,000 mile flight aboard Air Force One south from Washington. Joining the president on that journey are cargo planes carrying motorcade limousines, aircraft transporting staff for security sweeps, and the deployment of the Coast Guard in the waters
The New York Times´ decision to publish a debut op-ed column by the newly-hired Bret Stephens, a notable denier of anthropogenic climate change, has sparked an uproar from the paper´s subscribers, who are furious that the Times decided to publish a column that is contrary to much of the modern-day scientific consensus on the dangers of global warming. In his column, Stephens compared the "certitude" with which Hillary Clinton´s advisers believed she would win the 2016 election to climate scientists´ repeated warnings about climate change risks. As evidence, Stephens said that inaccurate polling data during the 2016 campaign proves that science
Washington - Prominent Washington journalists, if not Hollywood stars, celebrated the First Amendment during the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, an event that lacked the glitter of past years because of the absence of the president of the United States. (Snip) “We’ve got to address the elephant that’s not in the room,” cracked the entertainment headliner, Hasan Minhaj of “The Daily Show” on TV’s Comedy Central. “The leader of our country is not here. And that’s because he lives in Moscow. It’s a very long flight. As for the other guy, I think he’s in Pennsylvania because he can’t take a joke.”
Sergio Canavero, a controversial professor and neurosurgeon, wants to perform the first human head transplant in December. He told German magazine OOOM that the procedure will take place in China. According to the Observer, it will take 80 surgeons, 36 hours and $10 million to execute. Like a sci-fi tale come to life, Canavero, who’s also the former director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, claims that people whose brains have been cryogenically frozen could be revived within three years. “At the moment, I can only disclose that there has been massive progress in medical experiments that would have seemed
A majority of White House reporters believe President Trump has already established himself as the most openly anti-media president in U.S. history, according to a report from Politico. Published on Mr. Trump’s 100th day in office, the report released Saturday indicates White House journalists overwhelmingly agree the current administration is the worst ever with respect to its interactions with the press. Sixty-eight percent of respondents answered “true” when asked recently if Mr. Trump is the most openly anti-press president in history, Politico reported; about one-third, or 32 percent, responded “false.” What’s more, three-in-four reporters described the president’s frequent attacks against
Joe Biden has been saying yes to nearly all the political invitations coming his way, with new ones arriving almost daily. Privately, the former vice president and his staff have started talking about how to begin planning a strategy with a roughly 18-month timeline so that if he decides on another presidential run, he’ll be best positioned to get it off the ground. Biden will be 77 by the time of the next Iowa caucuses, but Biden 2020 just might happen. He will be in Manchester Sunday night for a speech at the New Hampshire Democratic Party dinner. After that
