Print outlets like The New York Times and Washington Post have developed a mutually beneficial relationship with cable television news over a string of bombshell stories about the Trump administration. It’s a news war with a twist.

USAA says it will reinstate ads on ‘Hannity’

in 2017/Top Headlines by

The USAA financial services firm is reinstating its advertising on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel program after receiving heavy criticism for its initial decision from many of the military members and veterans that it serves. The San Antonio, Texas-based company said Tuesday it will also start advertising again on other programs where it had suspended ads, including “Hardball” and “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC, and Jake Tapper’s “The Lead” on CNN. Following Hannity’s reporting on a discredited conspiracy theory…

Fueled by Donald Trump opponents, Rachel Maddow’s popularity rises

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Rachel Maddow can trace the mood of her audience by looking at the ratings. Her MSNBC show’s viewership sank like a stone in the weeks following Donald Trump‘s election, as depressed liberals avoided politics, and bottomed out over the holidays. Slowly, they re-emerged, becoming active and interested again. Maddow’s audience has grown to the point where February was her show’s most-watched month since its 2008 launch. Maddow has emerged as the favorite cable news host for presidential resistors in the…

Being a White House kid comes with pluses and minuses

in 2017/Top Headlines by

If it’s tough being a kid, try being a “first kid” — the child of an American president. Just ask President Bill Clinton‘s daughter, Chelsea. Or President George W. Bush‘s twins, Jenna and Barbara. And now, President Donald Trump‘s youngest child, Barron, is finding out. Ten-year-old Barron was the target of a poorly received joke tweeted by a “Saturday Night Live” writer on Jan. 20 as the new first family reveled in Inauguration Day events. Separately in Chicago, comedian Shannon…

Diane Roberts: Donald Trump feels presidency is ‘man’s job’

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Hillary Clinton is sick. Important white men-types, such as Rudy Giuliani, Sean Hannity, and Donald Trump, say so. She sits down at some of her campaign appearances — ON A STOOL! Or with a PILLOW BEHIND HER BACK! Clearly, her spine is disintegrating before our very eyes. She has Parkinson’s. A blood clot. A brain tumor. She has no stamina. She’s feeble. She has fits, seizures, rolling her eyes around and laughing. Or she’s possessed by demons. Giuliani: Now, there’s…

Mitch Perry Report for 8.9.16 – On a “rigged” election

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Last week (perhaps coincidentally as his poll numbers began dropping precipitously), Donald Trump suggested that the general presidential election this fall could be “rigged.” In Ohio last week, Trump said that he has heard “more and more” that the November election will be rigged — suggesting to his supporters that the outcome of the election is out of the hands of voters. That prospect has been further promulgated by one of Trump’s biggest supporters in the media, Sean Hannity. The Fox News…

Fox’s Sean Hannity at center of bitter campaign competition

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Sean Hannity is getting a bruising reminder that this year’s presidential campaign defies traditional political rules. The Fox News Channel and radio host had a nasty spat with Sen. Ted Cruz this past week, following criticism from both the left and right about his interviews with Donald Trump. Fox also aired the odd spectacle of Hannity sitting onstage with Trump as an audience booed lustily at the mention of Fox colleague Megyn Kelly‘s name. In an election year when cable…
