Through the course of this election cycle, Fox News has become as unwatchable as its left-leaning counter-networks and it seems I’m not the only person to make such an observation. New data from YouGov BrandIndex released Thursday explored Fox News’ brand value. Long touted as the Republican alternative to network news, Fox News viewers are increasingly disenchanted with the “we report, you decide” moniker. (Snip) Brand value might be plummeting, but Fox is still cleaning up the table in cable network ratings, where only ESPN has an edge. Disenchantment with Fox News mirrors deep factions in the Republican electorate. Many-a-Fox
Donald Trump made headlines this week when he questioned whether Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan wanted him to prevail over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “Maybe not,” Trump told Good Morning America on Tuesday. “Because maybe he wants to run in four years… or maybe he doesn’t know how to win. I mean, who can really know?” Trump said.The view that Ryan “doesn’t know how to win,” however, neglects the reality that both Ryan and Clinton share a progressive, globalist worldview, which is at odds with Trump’s “America first” approach. Indeed, both Clinton and Ryan have said that they see themselves as
Vice President Joe Biden suggested he would fight Donald Trump over lewd comments the GOP presidential nominee made about groping women. (Snip) Trump´s comments appear to have struck a chord with Biden, who has long fought abuse against women. He introduced the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 — legislation designed to hold offenders accountable and provide services for victims of such violence. Biden also spearheaded the "It´s On Us" White House campaign to shed light sexual assaults on college campuses. “The press always ask me don’t I wish I were debating him? No, I wish we were in high school
A mother whose toddler threw a huge tantrum in the middle of a café because he wanted a cake claims she has been shamed online by the restaurant´s owners. Kate Raine took her two-year-old son to the new Tyme Coffee Lounge in Glossop, Derbsyhire, to meet some friends but said ended up having full blown tantrum because he wanted a slice of cake - and not the toastie she had bought for him. She now claims to have been ´shamed´ by the café online after they issued a post which said: ´Screeching children should be taken outside until they can behave´.
WikiLeaks released another batch of Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta´s emails on Thursday. If you search "Benghazi," you´ll find her staff editing a draft of her opening statement to the Select Committee on Benghazi hearing almost a year ago today. Her staff is mostly pleased with the wording, but they have a few issues with it. In particular, Clinton´s political consultant Mandy Grunwald questions why Clinton is mentioning the "four guys" who were killed on the night of the raid. To do so, Grunwald worried, may be "overdoing" it.(Snip)Those four brave men, in case you didn´t know, are Ambassador Chris
Hillary Clinton punched back at Donald Trump tonight for threatening to ´jail´ her. The Republican has said he´ll appoint a special prosecutor to look into her emails if he wins and cautioned Clinton at a debate that she´d ´be in jail´ if he were in the White House now. ´Every time Donald Trump says he wants to jail his opponent, meaning me, I think to myself, you know we don´t do that in America,´ Clinton said Saturday. ´We actually have laws and courts and an independent judiciary.´ Clinton sent out an SOS to voters thinking of casting a ballot for
The case against Hillary Clinton could have been written before the recent WikiLeaks and FBI disclosures. But these documents do provide hard textual backup. The most sensational disclosure was the proposed deal between the State Department and the FBI in which the FBI would declassify a Hillary Clinton e-mail and State would give the FBI more slots in overseas stations. What made it sensational was the rare appearance in an official account of the phrase “quid pro quo,” which is the currently agreed-upon dividing line between acceptable and unacceptable corruption. This is nonetheless an odd choice for most egregious offense.
Secretary of State John Kerry admitted "it pisses me off" that climate change wasn´t brought up in the presidential debates. On a panel with Leonardo DiCaprio after a Thursday screening at UN headquarters in New York of the actor´s documentary "Before the Flood," Kerry said that "maybe November 8th will produce a capacity for the entire Republican caucus" to see the global-warming film. "It should be required for every single one of them," he added, to applause from the audience. Kerry emphasized that "we´re not sitting here chasing some pie-in-the-sky set of possible solutions somewhere down the road." "The solutions
(Video) Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, denounced the wrong website on Friday for releasing thousands of hacked emails from Hillary Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta. "You know that I´m going to first of all denounce the utilization of this intrusion by Wikipedia through the Russian intrusion," Jackson Lee said in an interview with MSNBC on Friday. "This is what it´s about. Espionage just like what was said over these last couple of days. We need to be concerned about the intrusion of Russia and Putin in these elections." Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia and was not behind the release of
Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore said in a recent interview that Donald Trump voters are “legal terrorist[s]” and that society should treat the Republican presidential candidate as it would a pedophile. Moore made the provocative remarks in an interview with Rolling Stone while pitching a new documentary, “Michael Moore in Trumpland.” Moore said he went to union halls for the film and met with longtime Democrats who are considering voting for Trump in November. His goal, he said, was to force them “to think about the damage they could do by being a legal terrorist on November 8th.” Asked by Rolling
NEWTOWN, Pa./NEW YORK – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gained on his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton among American voters this week, cutting her lead nearly in half, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling released on Friday (Oct 21). The polling data showed Trump’s argument that the Nov 8 election is “rigged” against him has resonated with members of his party. “Remember folks, it’s a rigged system,” Trump told a Pennsylvania rally on Friday. “That’s why you’ve got to get out and vote, you’ve got to watch. Because this system is totally rigged.”
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch says her Department of Justice aims above all to fight against fraud and corruption. In remarks given in Rome, Italy Thursday to law enforcement officials and leaders, Lynch said, “Fighting corruption in all of its forms is vital” to the commitment to freedom and equality. “I have seen firsthand how corruption, at bottom, is about breaking trust,” the attorney general continued, adding: It is about undermining citizens’ belief in their elected officials. It is about betraying the people’s faith that when public monies are spent on services for citizens – from infrastructure to education – none
