Comedian and actress Kathy Griffin claimed CNN president Jeff Zucker slashed her pay after she had asked for a raise as co-host of the network's New Year's Eve special. In a profile published Wednesday in The New York Times, Griffin recalled reaching out to Zucker 10 days before the broadcast in 2016 and told him she felt she deserved more than her $80,000 contract since "she was carrying more of the prep work" than her co-host, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper. According to Griffin, Zucker "got very offended." "He started yelling at me and he literally said something like, ‘Who do you think you are calling here demanding a raise?’


You posed for a pic with Trump's slashed head. Now you say Zucker slashed YOU for daring to ask for a raise. Red pill yet, Kathy?

I can safely say that I have never said and felt anything even remotely positive for a sleaze bag like Jeff Zucker. But I fully support his reaction to this evil hag's actions. He may be a totally evil and useless human being, but she is substantially worse!!!

The man who accused CNN host Don Lemon of a sexually charged assault said the liberal network is "a predator protecting machine" but he’s happy to see accountability with the dismissal of Chris Cuomo. It’s been over two years since Dustin Hice filed a lawsuit against Lemon – who is openly gay – accusing the CNN host of sexually charged assault and battery at a bar on New York's Long Island during the summer of 2018. The case is expected to end up in court early next year after a prolonged legal process.

Kyle Rittenhouse, in an unusual move for a defendant, took the witness stand Wednesday. He cried. His defense team then made a motion for a mistrial with prejudice, which means Rittenhouse couldn’t be retried. But whatever the court rules, he has already won. If Rittenhouse is convicted, he will likely stop being a right-wing mascot and become a right-wing martyr. If he isn’t convicted, he will set a precedent for others like him to pick up guns they shouldn’t have and thrust themselves into the middle of unrest they should avoid — confident in knowing that prison won’t be in their future.

A large family featured on CNN discussing the rising costs of basic groceries like milk was mocked by some progressive media figures on Thursday. To demonstrate the "squeeze" of inflation and supply chain issues on everyday Americans, CNN's "New Day" featured the Stotlers, a Texas couple looking after nine children – two of whom are their biological kids, while they've adopted six more and have one foster child. Krista Stotler said she started seeing prices rising this summer and it was costing them an extra $100 a week on groceries. "A gallon of milk was $1.99. Now it's $2.79.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday that income tax increases in the state were inevitable even if the government did dole out more coronavirus-related aid. “You probably will see tax increases in any event,” Cuomo said during his press conference. Cuomo had previously indicated tax hikes on the wealthy were on the table if the government failed to approve more funding for state and local governments. The three-term Democratic governor said on Wednesday that the consequences would be “devastating” if Congress does not agree to provide aid, involving several thousand layoffs, increased fares and tolls and government borrowing.

As Axios reported, “Klain’s private comments are yet another indication the White House has a core set of priorities it plans to fight for” . . . even if the president doesn’t know about it fully yet. CORRECTION*

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy signed the Democratic-sponsored bill into law earlier in the week after it passed the Democratic-controlled state Legislature mostly along party lines. It says both plain-clothed or uniformed police need to keep at least 100 feet from polling stations or drop boxes.
