  1. Sean Hannity was pretty much on fire tonight. He even got a big headline on The Drudge Report. He will definitely got top ratings for his show tonight. More damaging information regarding the Deep State and the “lost” emails being miraculously recovered.

    • Now that DOJ has found the messages, Sean will look silly if the content is just recipes, wedding plans, and yoga discussions.

    • Last nights ratings

      At 9 pm………… Viewers / Demo
      Sean Hannity…. 3,866,000 / 803,000
      Rachel Maddow 3,184,000 / 732,000
      Chris Cuomo….. 1,025,000 / 348,000

  2. The Cable Game has done a great job on Twitter of illustrating CNN’s incurious treatment of any freaking news that does not suit an anti-Trump narrative.

    CNN is not just incurious, really, but outright disdainful of reports on any move that might cast the FBI in a questionable light, while they simultaneously smear Fox as being biased.

    Thanks, Cable Gamer. As always, you’re a mensch.

    • Love A.B. Stoddard getting slapped down last night for the fact that the “FBI” taking criticism right now is not the wonderful agents that go after bank robbers and such, but FBI MANAGEMENT who surely have a lot to answer for. CNN has a lot to answer for as well. Failing at their obligation to report.

  3. If anyone has some spare crumbs, I will gladly accept them.

    According to top Democrats $1000 is just crumbs: Pelosi, Wasserman Schultz rip $1,000 tax reform bonuses, ‘crumb’

  4. Further proof Brian Stelter and CNN are extremely partisan, his Reliable Sources newsletter has a section called “what the pro-Trump media is talking about” but not a “what the anti-Trump media is talking about”.

  5. “Beme me up, Zucker”
    …. or
    ………”That’s what you get for taking advice from your snot-nosed kid”
    ……………or
    …………………”A Zucker is born every minute”

  6. Awkward: Shep went off and gave a mini-editorial about the classified GOP memo as nothing more than a ‘weapon of mass distraction’, then brought on a guy from Real Clear to ask why his top four stories yesterday were about the memo. It was a somewhat strained exchange, and the guy finally told Shep, ‘well, that’s your opinion’. Which to be honest it was. Anchors are supposed to be impartial but not everyone can be Bret Baier or Shannon Bream.

    • Man, shouldn’t he be shipped over to MSNBC or CNN? What the hell is he doing at Fox? Roger Ailes had some kind of a father/son relationship with Shep Smith, but now it is time for him to go.

    • I stopped DVRing his show for afternoon news, replacing it with the excellent 2:00PM offering. If I want Rachel Maddow, I know where to find her.

    • FYI – J$P has a separate post with video. I normally stay on this days links throughout the day, but happened to close tab in brrowser and noticed it.

  7. I watched the DiGenova interview on Tucker last night and thought Tucker should have given some pushback.

    I don’t know about Comey being “America’s dirtiest cop” (as claimed by DiGenova), but he’s certainly America’s Messianic Complex Cop.
