Rome Diary: Day Two

One thing larger than life is Pope Francis, who we saw this morning. It’s winter here. Cold. It poured rain on and off all morning. Still, along with about 10,000 others, we huddled under umbrellas waiting for the Holy Father to arrive for his weekly Wednesday appearance. Feb 6, 2014 9:07 AM PT

Rome Diary: Day One

Outside of a honeymoon cruise to the Caribbean, a few days in Canada, and a weekend in Santa Monica, I have never traveled outside of America. That all changes this week, as the wife and I begin to make our way to Rome, where we will arrive Monday night after an overnight layover in Chicago and another layover in Munich.

NBC In Miami Calls Republican Party 'Reprehensive'

NBC does it again, this time through a Miami affiliate that broadcast a graphic (see above) that read: "Reprehensive Party of Florida." You have to ask yourself what kind of culture there is at NBC News that makes staffers believe that dehumanizing Republicans in this way is okay. This isn't a one-off. It is a troubling pattern that just never stops. Jan 31, 2014 11:25 AM PT

Hollywood Playbook: Friday's Top 5 News Items

This is two digital revolutions coming together at once. First you have digital technology bringing down the cost of television production in ways that were unimaginable 20 years ago. Secondly, the bottleneck of distribution has been shattered. It used to be you either had to get the okay from a handful of movie studios or a handful of television networks. Today the outlets are endless. Jan 31, 2014 9:25 AM PT

Poll: Fox Remains the Most Trusted Name In News

Fox News once again found itself at the very top of Public Policy Polling's annual survey of the most trusted news networks in America. A whopping 35% of those polled trust Fox News more than any other television news outlet. Fox even embarrassed second place. PBS earned that spot with only 14%. Jan 31, 2014 5:54 AM PT

Poll: NBC, MSNBC Sink to Bottom of Public Trust

Democratic pollster Public Policy Polling's annual survey of the American public's most and least trusted news outlets found that NBC and MSNBC have sunk to the very bottom this year. Only 3% choose either as the networks they trust above all others. Fox News is the most trusted, with 35% choosing the "Fair and Balanced Network." Jan 30, 2014 2:08 PM PT

Larry King Mocks CNN, Slams Piers Morgan

Hard to write this off as sour grapes. After 25 years on the network, King left CNN four years ago. Since then he has been busy with his own projects and even guested on his replacement Piers Morgan's show. And he certainly doesn't sound angry in the HuffPost interview where he suggested CNN switch its programming to cartoons and slams Morgan as a host who makes it “too much about him.” Jan 30, 2014 1:43 PM PT

MSNBC President Apologizes to RNC for Cheerios Tweet

Within hours of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus calling for a boycott of MSNBC over a network tweet that taunted Republicans as racist, network president Phil Griffin ceded to Preibus's call for a public apology with a letter read on the air by "The Cycle" co-host Ari Meiber. "I personally apologize to Mr. Priebus," the letter said. "And to everyone offended." Griffin added, "We have dismissed the person responsible for the tweet." Jan 30, 2014 1:10 PM PT

Glass House: MSNBC Anchor Laments 'Dehumanization' of Reporters

While Todd himself admirably refrains from the flamethrower rhetoric that drives much of the rest of MSNBC and hosts one of the rare information-driven hours on the network, just a few hours after Todd expressed his concern over the "dehumanization" of others, the glass house he works for fired off a tweet that taunted the political right as racists. "Maybe the rightwing will hate it," the tweet read, "but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family." Jan 30, 2014 10:30 AM PT

WaPo: Cheerios Tweet Defines 'What MSNBC Is Becoming'

Washington Post media reporter Erik Wemple sees something happening at MSNBC beyond just that of a bizarre series of offensive statements dehumanizing Republicans followed by apologies. Wednesday night, after MSNBC's official Twitter account claimed conservatives would be offended by a Cheerios commercial starring a biracial family, Wemple ripped the network over its "pathology" and "prejudice."

Hollywood Playbook: Thursday's Top 5 News Items

This is not to say George Clooney doesn't have artistic talent. But his modest talents as an artist cannot and never have lived up to the hype. Because he's movie star-handsome (though not a movie star), practices the correct politics, and is obviously a genius at glad-handing the media, when it comes to the films he's directed that hit the left's political sweet spot or is seen as a Big Star good enough to slum in oh-so-important indie films as an actor, the media and Academy fall all over themselves with hosannas.

CNN Pundit: 'A Speech By Barack Obama Is a Lot Like Sex'

During CNN's State of the Union coverage Tuesday night, one of the network's pundits, Alex Castellano, compared a Barack Obama speech to sex. Speaking to anchor Anderson Cooper, he said, “I think a speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex: the worst there ever was is still excellent!” Jan 29, 2014 1:10 PM PT

Politico: Repub Verbal Threat Bigger Story Than Dem Physical Assault

In just 15 hours, Politico has already slammed Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) with 16 stories headlining his verbal threat against a reporter after President Obama's State of the Union speech. By comparison, this is already three more stories (according to Google's advance search) than Politico published during the entire episode surrounding former-Rep. Bob Etheridge's (D-NC) physical assault on a citizen journalist. Jan 29, 2014 12:30 PM PT

Hollywood Playbook: Wednesday's Top 5 News Items

"You also have to remember you're reaching a broad market. And it's not about my politics. A lot of performers want people to know their politics. I remember a young comedian on the show, his opening line was, "I'm a Democrat." Well, he lost half the crowd. Your job is to be funny first and maybe your message is third or fourth down the line. You're a comedian. But this is what happens: They start out as comedians, then they become satirists, then they become humorists, then they're out of the business." Jan 29, 2014 11:34 AM PT

WaPo Fact Checker Rips Obama's State of the Union Falsehoods

It is a beautiful thing being President Obama. You can pretty much say whatever you want and never be held accountable for it. Sure, a Washington Post fact-checker will dutifully note the brazen falsehoods. The media dutifully reports on most everything. But make Obama pay a political price for not telling the truth in a State of the Union address about the number of jobs created and number of ObamaCare enrollees? Never. Jan 29, 2014 9:42 AM PT
