  1. I hate when Stelter makes that faux-concerned face (see photo above). There is no way he actually believes a stupid tweet from DJT is going to shut down CNN and imprison all his fellow “journalists”.

    • Well just what expression would you wear in order to convey that we have a Manchurian-candidate president in office, installed by racist simpletons, with the temerity to criticise me and mine and to hold opposing views?

      This is DIRE, man!

    • That is definitely not a concern, but the next time CNN International does an expose on, say, the slave trade in Libya the Libyans will be able to cry “fake news” and point to the President’s allegations.

  2. Stelter and CNN coined the term “fake news” as a means of suggesting the election and the voters who determined it were illegitimate.

    Now, that the expression is used in a literal way about them, they want it “banned” in the reporting, quoting, and opinionizing of their lofty cohort.

    And, as usual, without a trace of self-awareness or irony.

  3. Olbermann is retiring because he can no longer go higher than that basement.

    Keith’s voice in the media is unique no more in its out-of-the-closet partisan stridency, anger, contempt for contrarians, and smugness.

    The MSM are all Keith Olbermanns now.

  4. Unfortunately, folks, “fake news” no longer means false or tenuous conservative clickbait, put out by a Putin-Trump plot, and responsible for garnering enough rubes to get Trump elected.

    No, now the term has been “weaponized” to mean objectively false stories and tenuous liberal narrative put out by the MSM in order to undermine the Trump election.

    Oh, the humanity!…

  5. That thing Joe and Mika do where one insists they must venture something controversial while the other one keeps hushing them and saying that they mustn’t?…

    Their little fake vaudeville act.

    • Well said.

      In regards to the Cable Game wondering if Mika is “losing it” – nope. She tossed that out to get a rise out of Trump and to have Trump attack them on twitter. For them it’s all about their feud with Trump and Trump would be wise to keep ignoring them and thus denying them what they really want.

    • I agree that this was probably put out there to goad POTUS into attacking them on Twitter. As I stop to think about it though, I watched 3 or 4 seasons of “Celebrity Apprentice” and I do remember Trump telling one of the contestants (cannot remember which one) ” I like gayness”. Maybe this is where she got this theory. 🙂

        • Totally get your point. It will be a Matthew Dowd/Chris Cuomo type who claim to love gay people then use it as a slur to hurt a Republican. What’s funny is that Trump is probably the most gay friendly president from either party and gets no credit.

          • Oh, yeah.

            At Mediaite and Olby Watch liberal regular commenters would have alter identities where they played gay in hopes of being bullied by conservatives, because, you know…that’s what conservatives do…

  6. Today’s most popular links:
    5 House bid
    4 wanted sex
    3 can’t read a chart
    2 yet again
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 The Cable Game: The man behind the curtain.

    • Far from being spin, that was a dead-on analogy from Greg.

      I read somewhere today that what Trump is doing is the same as saying “Hey, Pocahontas!” to a Native American girl.

      As Gutfeld points out, it’s the opposite.

      • Warren has yet to take a DNA test. A real one involving a blood draw, not the spit in a tube deal. The Cherokees offered to pay for it.

      • Ice pretends to be a real man…….. on twitter he plays a big man bashing and lying about #1 Fox News…….but when offered chance to do that face to face on National TV and tell people how unfair Fox news is by telling both sides and being fair…….he hides under his moms bed like a 2 year old girl.

        Cowards and bullies always hate the sunlight on their actions.
