Megyn Kelly Smacks Down Perspiring, Prevaricating Alex Jones

  As vigorously hyped broadcast events go, Megyn Kelly’s televised confrontation with Internet conspiracy cultist Alex Jones proved something of a dud. Not because Kelly didn’t give it her best.

It looks to a lot of people like NBC and MSNBC are shifting right in order to compete for the GOP audience and appeal to Trump himself. The Trump administration’s increasing comfort with MSNBC and NBC only reinforces this theory.

Megyn Kelly, New Face Of NBC News, Withheld Vital Information During The Election

First Debate: Fairly Or Not, Media Pressure Is On Clinton

Donald Trump has never participated in a one-on-one presidential debate. Hillary Clinton has been in 10 of them. Yet it’s Clinton, not Trump, who is under the most pressure when the two presidential candidates face off Monday night in New York.

NBC News Vs. The Donald

A press release from MSNBC was headlined “NBC News Report: ‘Donald Trump Does Not Have a Campaign.'” Which was kind of a surprise. Trump has a campaign plane and campaign rallies and a campaign press corps, so why doesn’t he have a campaign?

Did Hillary Clinton Try To Silence Juanita Broaddrick? She Told NBC News That ‘Nobody’ Ever Did

Juanita Broaddrick recently posted on Twitter her claim that “Hillary tried to silence me” about her alleged rape by Bill Clinton in 1978. But as with all of her sensational charges, it is hard to know what to believe about that accusation because she has also said — and perhaps sworn — precisely the opposite.
