Ratings: CNN Crushed By Fox News, Beats MSNBC, Tapper Wins Demo

Buoyed by a big news month and left-wing competition in the form of an MSNBC incapable of anything approaching news gathering, CNN beat the "Lean Forward" channel for the third straight month and lifted its viewership considerably over last year. Fox News, however, is still beating CNN by a very wide margin. Jul 30, 2013 2:45 PM PT

MSNBC Collapses to Fourth Place: Loses 12% of Viewers

This year's bad news for MSNBC has only gotten worse. The "Lean Forward" network has struggled in the ratings since the Boston Marathon bombings exposed the network's glaring weakness when it comes to news gathering. MSNBC had hoped to turn that around by going all-in on with the Zimmerman trial, but it obviously didn't work. Compared to last year in July, MSNBC was down -12% in total viewers and -4% in the 25-54 demo. Jul 30, 2013 2:04 PM PT

GOP Establishment and 'The New York Times' Sitting In a Treeā€¦

It is hard to tell who is using who, but to see the GOP Establishment become so useful to the New York Times' ongoing jihad against conservatives is more than a little troubling. Or maybe it is worse; maybe the New York Times is becoming useful to the GOP Establishment. Or maybe it is a full-blown nightmare realized and the two of them have climbed into bed together...?

Backfire: Media Forced to Destroy Weiner-Monster They Created

Let us never forget that the same media currently in hyper-drive to drive Weiner out of the race is the very same media that played a willing accomplice to Weiner's comeback strategy. In July 2012, People Magazine ran a fluffy cover profile of Weiner and his family. In April of 2013, the New York Times Magazine ran a very consequential cover story that pretty much did the same.

One More Dem Scandal Media Didn't Break: Weiner's Ongoing Sexting

How much energy did the MSM put into covering Weiner's comeback run? We've all seen those photos of hordes of cameras and microphones. But even with all that media and all those resources, it was a site called that scooped everyone. Jul 30, 2013 7:18 AM PT

'Niagara' (1953) Review: Beautiful Piece of Technicolor Noir

At 27 years-old and with less than a decade to live, in 1953 Marilyn Monroe was  on the cusp of the kind of superstardom the ambitious Norma Jeane Mortenson probably never even dreamed of, and "Niagara" was one of the vehicles that put her there. The femme fatale Rose was Monroe's first starring role -- the improbably sexy young wife plotting to murder her husband George (Joseph Cotten), an embittered, older and jealous man who rescued her from life as a honky-tonk waitress.

San Diego Media: We Knew About Filner and Said Nothing

Doug Curlee, a San Diego reporter, admits in a Monday editorial that "San Diego news media reporters, editors, producers and writers pretty much knew who and what Bob Filner is and has been." But except for talking about it over drinks, "we did nothing about it." Worst of all, Curlee claims that the rumors around Filner were "incessant," but no one bothered to confirm them, choosing instead to accept denials. Jul 29, 2013 12:57 PM PT

Secular Media Shocked by Non-News in Pope Statement on Gays

CNN's Carol Costello is practically speechless. The BBC actually sent me a news alert. The New York Times described the moment as "breathtaking." So what did Pope Francis say that sent shockwaves through the left-wing media? Oh, just something that has been Catholic/Christian doctrine for a couple thousand years. Jul 29, 2013 10:06 AM PT

The Pervert Spiral: Worst Case Scenario About a 'Mayor Anthony Weiner'

Late last week I used this space to dispel the myth that Anthony Weiner's private life was his own affair and should not concern voters. After all, some argue, if Weiner's wife is willing to forgive, who are we to judge? Well, any behavior that might compromise anyone to a point where they can be blackmailed into doing something against the public interest should always worry voters, and is most certainly "our business."

CNN's Don Lemon: O'Reilly's 'Got a Point About Black People'

After a humiliating episode last week where he broke down on the air talking about himself and the persecution of American racism he has personally faced, the wealthy, powerful, and famous Don Lemon of CNN returned to the subject Saturday. In a seven-minute fit of opinion, Lemon defended comments made by Fox News' Bill O'Reilly on the issue of race. Jul 29, 2013 7:02 AM PT

CNN's New 'Crossfire' Producer Accused Romney of Partying While 'Black People Drown'

Using his verified Twitter feed early Monday morning, CNN political director Mark Preston wrote that he was "psyched" David Chalian was joining CNN as the supervising producer of CNN's upcoming "Crossfire" reboot. In August of last year, Chalian was fired as the Yahoo News bureau chief after he was caught on a hot mic accusing then-GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney of being "happy to have a party with black people drowning."

ABC News Must Release Full, Unedited Interview with Zimmerman Juror

When it comes to the sins committed by the mainstream media in their 18-month crusade to accomplish a media-lynching of George Zimmerman, we have seen countless new lows in an ocean of new lows (including ABC News -- more on that below). Thanks to our own John Sexton and Slate's William Saletan, we appear to have found another low -- this time in the questionable editing of an ABC News interview with Zimmerman juror B29.

2013 Box office Down 19%; 'Wolverine' Opens Weak

In 2009, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" opened to $85.1 million, and as Nikki Finke points out, this was after scathing reviews (I enjoyed it) and a copy leaked online that no one liked. With better reviews and the weekend all to itself, though, "The Wolverine" might not hit $60 million. This is not a disaster for 20th Century-Fox (the sixth X-Men film's budget was modest), but you would expect a superhero franchise flick released in the heart of summer to be doing a little better.

Why the 'Private Life' of Anthony Weiner Matters... A Lot

My mile-wide libertarian streak when it comes to what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own homes, wants to agree with those who claim that how Anthony Weiner conducts himself in private has nothing to do with his qualifications to be New York City's next mayor.
