NBC News employees piled on one of their own colleagues over his report about how the first public impeachment hearing lacked "pizzazz." U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent were the first witnesses to offer their testimony in the open and were grilled for several hours over their knowledge of President Trump's conduct with Ukraine. (Snip) When the report was shared on social media, the "pizzazz" headline triggered critics, including by some of Allen's co-workers. "This is an embarrassing and unserious headline. Do better," MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin reacted. "Not sure that 'pizzazz' was the point," MSNBC

Comments:

Libs 'triggered' by slight deviation from ordered talking points, just proving DJT Jr's book has the right title.

It lacked evidence. That’s just for starters. The only other thing it lacked was a guy selling peanuts in the stands like a guy at a baseball game. It also lacked credibility and an audience.

Oh yeah, Jennifer Rubin. One of those conservatives who used to help rubes like us understand how important men like Mitt Romney were. One of those conservatives who work at the Washington Post. One of those conservatives who can't stand President Trump. In other words, a conservative that liberals love who hates us. There's a special circle in h-ll for those who made their living as conservatives but have now turned on the president with the most conservative agenda in my lifetime.

Well, yeah, that and it lacked anyone who had EVER EVEN MET THE PRESIDENT. And it lacked anyone who had ANY first hand knowledge of ANYTHING.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied to record levels on Friday, reaching 28,000 for the first time ever, after White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow said China and the U.S. were getting close to reaching a trade deal. The 30-stock average closed 222.93 points higher, or 0.7% at 28,004.89. It took the Dow just over four months to go from 27,000 for the first time to 28,000. Apple is the best-performing stock in the Dow since July 11, when the index first reached 27,000. In that time, Apple shares are up more than 30%. Intel, J.P. Morgan, United Technologies and

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch compared herself to the diplomats and contractors killed in Benghazi in her opening statement in the second public impeachment inquiry on Friday. “We make a difference everyday,” she said in a defense of herself and diplomats serving around the world.

The brutal killing of a former Michigan elementary school teacher discovered bound and strangled in her Dominican Republic home is being investigated as a potential robbery-gone-wrong, officials told Fox News on Thursday, emphasizing police were working diligently to “solve this case as quickly as possible." Patricia Ann Anton was found on her bed in her Puerto Plata home with her hands and feet tied up when her body was found Tuesday, Dominican National Police spokesperson Frank Felix Duran Mejia told Fox News. “Per the preliminary investigation, we are working on the theory that this was a robbery,” he said.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV has been manufacturing more cars and trucks than its U.S. dealers are willing to accept, at one point creating a nationwide glut of about 40,000 unordered vehicles and stoking tension with some of its retailers. Four dealers, two of whom spoke on the condition they not be named, said Fiat Chrysler has revived what’s known in industry circles as a “sales bank.” The practice is decades old and frowned upon by investors and analysts because it can obscure an automaker’s inventory figures. Dealers don’t like it because it can amp up the pressure companies place on

Bode Miller added yet another impressive title to his list of accomplishments Friday. On top of being an Olympic gold medalist and U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Famer, Miller can also say he’s delivered children. No, Miller didn’t become an obstetrician, but he had to perform similar duties when his twin boys were born Nov. 8. Miller stepped in and helped deliver the twins after the couple’s midwife did not show up in time for the birth, according to the Daily Mail. Miller, 42, had help from his mother, who previously worked as a midwife. Together, they helped deliver

The Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers in dramatic fashion on Monday night, taking a 27-24 victory in overtime to hand the Niners their first loss of the season. (Snip) Kicker Chase McLaughlin, an undrafted rookie playing in his first game for the 49ers, had already nailed three field goals on the night, and with this kick had the chance to play hero for his new team. Instead, he botched the kick, punching the ball wide left to keep the overtime period going. "The moment was too big," Tessitore said. Tessitore's turn of phrase might have gone unremarked upon

Congressional Democrats and Republicans each appear to face a challenge moving public opinion on impeachment as public hearings begin, since many Americans say their views are already locked in. There's been essentially no change in the number who feel President Trump deserves to be impeached since last month, and now the public expresses dissatisfaction with the approaches of both congressional Democrats and the president thus far. More Americans feel the Democrats have done a bad job handling the inquiry (52%) than a good job (48%.) And more feel President Trump has done a bad job handling it (56%) than feel

A massive arctic chill is moving over much of the country Monday, bringing bone-chilling cold and snow. More than 67 million Americans are under winter weather alerts, and forecasters expect hundreds of cold temperature records to be broken. The cold and snow will have people shivering across the central, southern, and eastern U.S. through the middle of the week. The Plains and Midwest have seen snow, reports CBS News correspondent David Begnaud. Rapid City, South Dakota, got about five inches. There was a "no travel advisory" issued because of how much snow fell there over the weekend. In Minneapolis, vehicles

Unless they have reason to know it’s not actually happening, the report that former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is considering a late entry into the presidential race has to cause some jitters in the far-flung precincts of Team Biden. But what makes the report more credible, according to the New York Times, is that Deval called up Biden himself and told him about it: Mr. Patrick told Mr. Biden in a phone conversation last week that he was weighing a bid, according to a Democrat directly familiar with the call, but did not indicate that he had fully decided to

Of course Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) took his seat Wednesday morning, at the opening of the public impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill, wearing nothing but his shirtsleeves. No suit jacket. That’s how Jordan dresses. It’s his power move. His sartorial chest thump. All the other members of the House Intelligence Committee turned up in suits and ties or other business attire. But not Jordan. Everyone else was willing to offer at least a symbolic nod to decorous formality, to that old-fashioned notion of civility.

By most everyone’s judgment, the Senate will not vote to remove President Donald Trump from office if the House impeaches him. But what if senators could vote on impeachment by secret ballot? If they didn’t have to face backlash from constituents or the media or the president himself, who knows how many Republican senators would vote to remove? A secret impeachment ballot might sound crazy, but it’s actually quite possible.(Snip) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he will immediately move to hold a trial to adjudicate the articles of impeachment if and when the Senate receives them from the House of Representatives.

During an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live to discuss the former secretary of state’s book, The Book of Gusty Women: Favourite Stories of Courage and Resilience, host Emma Barnett questioned why the first female prime minister of the UK was not included. “Surely she comes to mind with gutsy women, even if you didn’t like her?” Barnett asked Clinton. In response to the inquiry, Clinton, who lost the election that would have made her the first female president of the United States in 2016,

On Thursday night, the underdog Cleveland Browns met the Pittsburgh Steelers. And the Browns showed up, beating the Steelers 21-7 in a pretty decisive victory. That wouldn’t be big news, normally. But at the end of the game, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett got into an altercation unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my decades of watching football. (snip) Where this became far different and more dangerous than your typical football scuffle is that, during the entanglement, Myles Garrett actually reared back and attempted to windmill-tomahawk slam the helmet he was holding on top of Mason Rudolph’s exposed skull with furious gusto.

Sanders, a senator from Vermont, said this in a joint interview with Ocasio-Cortez last week to ABC News, adding that the Bronx-Queens freshman congresswoman has ideas that “are resonating all over this country,” and: “If I am in the White House, she will play a very, very important role. No question.” “I don’t want you to hear this, because your head will explode,” Sanders said in jest to Ocasio-Cortez, before adding, “I don’t know of any person … who has had

During a visit to Britain this week, Hillary Clinton explained why she and daughter Chelsea chose not to include Margaret Thatcher in their new book featuring “gutsy women” – and why the teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg did make the cut. In Clinton’s view Britain’s first prime minister did not do enough to knock down “barriers for others.” The former Democratic presidential nominee did give a nod to Thatcher’s willingness to change the way she dressed, spoke and wore her hair, alluding to one of the most dramatic makeovers in 20th century politics.
