Stephen Colbert Defends CNN: Trump Is the One ‘Guilty of Fake News’ (Video)

28 June 2017 7:59 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

President Donald Trump recently blasted CNN as “fake news,” but Stephen Colbert was ready on the defensive on “The Late Show” Tuesday night. In his opening monologue, Colbert addressed the three CNN resignations, which spawned from the retraction of a story linking Trump to Russia. “This is CNN’s worst mistake since their short-lived spinoff, ‘Wolf Blitzer’s Rockin’ Situation Garage,'” Colbert joked. On Thursday, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a story involving an investigation into a Russian investment fund with possible ties to several Trump associates.

Trump Sends CNN to ‘Siberia’ Press Section of Rose Garden: ‘We Were Put In Time Out’

9 June 2017 5:48 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Forget Russia, CNN is stuck in Siberia. Reporter Jim Acosta made note of the fact that his network was relegated to the “Siberia” section of the Rose Garden during President Trump’s press conference with Romanian president Klaus Iohannis Friday, quickly adding, “no pun intended.” “The question has be to be raised whether or not this White House was retaliating against CNN,” Acosta later told Wolf Blitzer during an on-air crosstalk.

James Comey Testimony Plays Like Super Bowl of Politics for TV News Nets

8 June 2017 11:38 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The major news networks pulled out their biggest anchors, flashy graphics packages, and array of commentators on Thursday to cover nearly three hours of live testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee from former FBI director James Comey on the question of why he was fired by President Trump last month.

The fact that Comey opened his remarks with the unvarnished assertion that President Trump and administration officials lied in an effort to “defame” him personally and the FBI in general set the tone for the session. The questioning from the dais of mostly dour-faced senators never got too combative, nor did Comey seem to break a sweat despite sitting in the hot seat alone for more than two and a half hours.

Like a sporting event, the major news networks offered pre- and post-game coverage that dissected every word exchanged at the hearing. In a sign of the political significance of Comey’s testimony, ABC »

Hasan Minhaj on His Legendary Whcd Takedown and Fighting Trump Fatigue

31 May 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Speak up against injustice or be thankful that you're still alive? It's a question that, as a first-generation American, Hasan Minhaj has been dealing with since childhood. Whether it was race-fueled vandalism at his childhood home or a rejected prom date, the 31-year-old comedian has always struggled with paying what he calls the "American Dream tax" — exchanging personal anger at everyday racism for the right to live safely in America. "It's something that I still deal with, and we all deal with in some capacity," he says. "But I've tried »

Trump Tells News Anchors That Special Counsel in Russia Probe ‘Hurts Our Country’

18 May 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a meeting at the White House on Thursday, President Donald Trump told news anchors that the appointment of a special counsel in the Russia probe is bad for the U.S.

“I believe it hurts our country terribly, because it shows we’re a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country,” Trump said in an on-the-record statement. “And we have very important things to be doing right now, whether it’s trade deals, whether it’s military, whether it’s stopping nuclear — all of the things that we discussed today. And I think this shows a very divided country.”

He also reiterated his previous claim that the Democrats are using the Russia investigation as an “excuse.”

“It also happens to be a pure excuse for the Democrats having lost an election that they should have easily won because of the Electoral College being slanted so much in their way,” he added. “That’s all this is. I »

9 May 2017 4:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jeffrey Toobin said that President Trump’s decision to fire of FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday was a “grotesque abuse of power,” comparing the current situation to Watergate. “This is the kind of thing that goes on in non-democracies. That when there is an investigation that reaches near the President of the United States, or the leader of a non-democracy, they fire the people who were in charge of the investigation,” the CNN legal analyst said on Wolf Blitzer’s “Situation Room” Tuesday afternoon. Trump fired Comey earlier in the day, ostensibly over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, »

All Major Networks Now Refuse to Air Trump’s ‘Fake News’ Ad

5 May 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign says all three major networks have joined CNN in refusing to air an ad that attacks them. CNN was the first to reject the 30-second spot, which included the words “fake news” in bold, red font over photos of news anchors, including CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and Rachel Maddow, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and CBS’s Scott Pelley. And now the Trump campaign is saying the move represents unlawful censorship. “Apparently, the mainstream media are champions of the First Amendment only when it serves their own political views,” Lara Trump, the »

CNN Refuses to Air Donald Trump Ad That Labels Media ‘Fake News’

2 May 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CNN has refused to run an ad made by President Donald Trump’s team due to its labeling of several prominent news anchors as “fake news.”

The ad was made to celebrate Trump’s first 100 days in office, including a list of things he has accomplished since his inauguration. The narrator in the ad then says, “You wouldn’t know it from watching the news.” It then features images of CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow, and others along with the graphic reading “fake news.”

“CNN requested that the advertiser remove the false graphic that the mainstream media is ‘fake news,'” CNN said in a statement. “The mainstream media is not fake news, and therefore the ad is false and per policy will be accepted only if that graphic is deleted.”

Michael Glassner, the executive director of Donald J. Trump for President Inc. called CNN’s refusal to air the ad “shamful.”

29 April 2017 8:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

No president, no problem.

Hasan Minhaj took the stage Saturday night at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and delivered a model set for the annual event, even though the event itself was anything but ordinary. The “Daily Show” special correspondent delivered an eviscerating 25-minute speech, going after the usual targets, from the reporters in the room to the president and his staff, despite Donald Trump’s absence.

“I would say it’s an honor to be here, but that is an alternative fact,” Minhaj said. “No one one wanted to do this, so, of course, it landed in the hands of an immigrant — like it always does.”

14 April 2017 10:07 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Howard Stern is a longtime friend of President Donald Trump — but he’s certainly no friend of Sean Spicer.

During his Sirius Xm radio show on Wednesday, Stern criticized the White House press secretary’s recent suggestion that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons on his own people, saying Spicer speaks “fluent moron” and is “embarrassing” the president.

“When I heard , I was like, Trump’s got to fire this guy, I think,” the 63-year-old shock jock said.

Stern questioned how Spicer could “not know that Hitler marched his own people … to concentration camps and turned on chemical gas. »

Sean Spicer has offered his third apology in a single day after suggesting that Adolf Hitler did not “sink to using chemical weapons” during World War II.

“I was trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week using chemical weapons and gas,” Spicer, 45, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday evening. “And frankly, I mistakenly used an inappropriate, insensitive reference to the Holocaust.
