Facebook and the Future of Democracy, News, Free Expression and All That Stuff

20 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Facebook has a “D.C. problem,” says everybody: the Washington, D.C.-based news sites and pundits, Axios and Politico and Rachel Maddow. Everybody’s up in arms that Facebook took months to disclose that it received $100,000 in political ads from Russian fronts during the 2016 election. Facebook finally fessed up to this fact in September — eight months after having denied it. CEO Mark Zuckerberg last week rushed to offer an empathetic video in which he confessed that “for a while we had found no evidence of fake accounts linked to Russia running ads” but the platform suddenly found 3,000 fake ads that. »

Sean Hannity v Rachel Maddow Showdown: Who Will Win in 9 Pm Primetime Slot?

19 September 2017 11:27 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sean Hannity is headed (back) to Rachel Maddow’s 9 o’clock turf next month — but which one will own the time slot once that happens? Year-to-date, MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” has averaged 2.49 million total viewers at 9 p.m., with 581,000 of them coming from the key 25-54 ratings demographic. An hour later, over on Fox News, “Hannity” has averaged 2.62 million and 579,000 viewers, respectively. Rachel Maddow’s demo ratings have topped Sean Hannity’s Nielsen numbers for six straight months now, though with a difference of just 2,000 viewers thus far this year, that race is pretty darn tight.

Fox News to Launch Laura Ingraham at 10 p.m. and Rework Primetime

18 September 2017 11:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Popular radio host Laura Ingraham is coming to Fox News Channel in a big way, and the cable-news network will shake up its primetime schedule to accommodate her.

Fox News said Ingraham would start to anchor “The Ingraham Angle” on October 30th at 10 p.m, and focus on stories and news of how the news of the day affects “everyday, hard-working Americans who serve as the backbone of the nation.”

“I look forward to informing and entertaining the audience and introducing new voices to the conversation,” Ingraham said in a statement.

To set the show in motion at 10 p.m., Fox News will rework its schedule. Sean Hannity’s long-running program will return to 9 p.m., while”The Five,” which had previously occupied the network’s 9 p.m. hour, will return to its original 5 p.m. timeslot. The last two changes will take place next Monday, and rotating hosts will cover the 10 p.m »

James Murdoch Upbeat on Fox-Sky Merger Despite New Probe: ‘We Have a Clock on This Now’

14 September 2017 4:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

James Murdoch said Thursday he was confident 21st Century Fox’s bid to take over Sky would survive a more extensive regulatory review requested by the British government, adding that he was happy “we have a clock on this now.”

“Obviously we were disappointed” by the government’s decision to call in the U.K.’s Competition and Markets Authority to examine the $15 billion takeover bid, Murdoch said. “But we’re also looking forward to engaging with the Cma….We’re confident that it goes through.”

Murdoch’s comments at the Royal Television Society conference in Cambridge, England, came just hours after British Culture Secretary Karen Bradley confirmed she would ask the Cma to investigate whether Fox and the Murdoch family would exercise too much power in British media following a merger with Sky and whether they would adhere to local broadcasting standards. The competition authority’s review is expected to take six months.

Fox News Goes With Stout “No Deal In Place” On Report Laura Ingraham Getting Hannity’s 10 Pm Slot

11 September 2017 5:39 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Fox News Channel’s slow dance with Laura Ingraham is now a tango since Fnc announced it had parted ways with Eric Bolling. Fnc says, “There is no deal in place with Laura Ingraham at this time.” That’s in lockstep with a CNN report that’s triggering today’s a-twittering: It says Ingraham “is expected” to take Sean Hannity’s 10 Pm timeslot so Fnc can deploy Hannity against MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow at 9 Pm, where she has been chewing up Fnc’s The Five, as well as CNN’s Anderson… »

Fox News Moves Closer to Deal With Laura Ingraham

11 September 2017 5:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox News and radio host Laura Ingraham have moved closer to a deal that could make the conservative talker a regular part of the news outlet’s primetime lineup, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The 21st Century Fox-owned cable network said in a statement Monday night that “there is no deal in place with Laura Ingraham at this time.”

The two sides have been in negotiations since at least August. If the discussions bear fruit, Ingraham could take up residency during the network’s 10 p.m. slot – a move that might set in motion a cascade of schedule changes. Sean Hannity, who has held forth at 10 p.m. for the last several years, could return to the 9 p.m. slot he once held. And “The Five,” a panel show that currently airs at 9 p.m., could return to its original time slot of 5 p.m. Fox News recently cancelled the show that had been »

Fox News in Early Talks With Laura Ingraham

15 August 2017 4:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox News Channel is in discussions with the conservative radio host Laura Ingraham that could result in her coming to the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news network as a regular host, a person familiar with the outlet’s plans confirmed early Tuesday.

The two sides are believed to be in early talks, and no decision has been made regarding the time slot Ingraham might anchor, or even when she might join the company in the new role. No deal has been signed, and there is no sense at this time when one might come to fruition, this person said. She already serves as a Fox News contributor.

Revelation of the talks, which surfaced Monday on The Drudge Report and were further detailed by CNN, show Fox News Channel continuing to mull tinkering with its program line-up as it grapples in real time to find alternatives for hosts who have come under recent fire. Fox News »

Despite Controversy and Trump Attacks, At&T Can’t Just Hang Up on CNN

8 August 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CNN producers just a few weeks ago would readily acknowledge the trouble they were having in getting Trump administration officials to speak about current events on the network. Now, they can’t get them to shut up.

Just last week, Trump adviser Stephen Miller took time out during a White House press briefing to berate Jim Acosta, the network’s senior White House correspondent. In a nearly half-hour interview broadcast July 27, then-White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci phoned in to “New Day” co-anchor Chris Cuomo to explain his concerns about leaks from the White House. When Scaramucci chastised CNN for its coverage of Russian interference with the election — and possible ties to Trump officials — Cuomo pushed back. “It’s not that we have some untoward fascination with an investigation. We do it because it threatens the foundation of the democracy,” he said. “You know that. You know it matters.”

NBC Helped Create President Trump — and MSNBC Ratings Prove He’s Been Good for the Company

4 August 2017 5:26 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If NBC didn’t make “The Apprentice,” there would be no President Donald Trump. And if there was no President Donald Trump, there would be no MSNBC ratings bump.

The television butterfly effect has become a popular topic. At San Diego Comic-Con, “The Simpsons” executive producer Matt Selman (somewhat) jokingly pointed out that it was his animated smash that gave Rupert Murdoch the resources to launch Fox News… which created a political environment that eventually also led to a President Trump.

NBCUniversal must appreciate the irony: However America got here, MSNBC – with host Rachel Maddow as its central star – has capitalized on the hunger to make sense of this administration.

MSNBC Claims Top Spot in Cable Weekday Primetime Viewers for First Time Ever

25 July 2017 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

MSNBC scored an historic victory last week, finishing as the number one cable network in weekday primetime total viewers for the first time in the network’s 21-year history, according to Nielsen data.

From July 17-21, MSNBC averaged 2.34 million viewers from 8-11 p.m., topping its nearest cable news competitor, Fox News (2.25 million). MSNBC was previously the number one cable news network in weekday prime during the weeks of May 15, 2017 and September 3, 2012 among total viewers, but this was the first time MSNBC was number one among all of cable.

“The Rachel Maddow Show” (9-10pm) also bested both Fox News and CNN among total viewers for the fourth straight week in 9-10pm time period. Among cable news, last week marked MSNBC’s 29th weekly win in 30 weeks in Monday-Friday primetime over CNN with total viewers this year.

MSNBC has seen a major surge in its ratings ever since the election of President Donald Trump, much »

Rachel Maddow, Frank Ocean and Ellen DeGeneres Top Out Magazine's Power 50 List

19 July 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Out Magazine is unveiling its annual list of the most influential members of the Lgbtq community.

Rachel Maddow topped this year’s list, with Anderson Cooper and Ellen DeGeneres taking the second and third spots respectively.
