    • Holy smokes, did he ever. But, you also notice how no one at CNN believes him when he says they have strayed from news reporting. Enough bashing of us old white farts is what I say. Let’s start bashing the millennials who can’t stand to hear any other viewpoints but ones they agree with. I mean, that’s the demo everyone is going after, right?

      • Millennials as a group are the most self-absorbed people that I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with.
        It’s not just white people catching hell, my people are told that we are too damn ignorant to know what words we should be offended by.

  1. Zurawik: Stop us media folk from over-covering Trump, Megyn Kelly!!!…


    ….as though the media would be talking about anything more substantive than some ginned-up faux pas from one Republican candidate or another if there was no Trump.

  2. Re: “Zurawik: Will Megyn succeed where Coop and O’Reilly have failed?”: Sorry Bill couldn’t be the hatchet man you wanted him to be, Z.

    • Maybe Z needs his on show. If they ever bring back TALES FROM THE CRYPT he’d be a natural for the host.

    • I’m surprised ‘Z’ mentioned Megyn instead of Chris Wallace, who in my opinion is the toughest interviewer on television — broadcast or cable.

      I do think it’s noteworthy that as much as Trump likes to be interviewed it is Rand Paul who is on FNS this Sunday and not Donald Trump.

  3. Today’s most popular links:
    5 falsely claims exclusive
