    CNN is considering a revamp of its anchor lineup, with less reliance on opinionated anchors like Don Lemon - a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump - and Brianna Keilar, in favor of the likes of White House Chief Correspondent Kaitlan Collins, after profits were projected to fall below $1 billion, a first since 2016.  The news network, spearheaded by new chief, Chris Licht, formerly of CBS News, is shifting back toward reporting straight news rather than airing discussion panels between opinionated contributors often criticizing Republican policies in favor of liberal ones. 'CNN seems to be moving back more toward straight news and away from some of the blatant opinion-mongering by its anchors that characterized its past few years,' Mark Feldstein, chairman of the broadcast journalism department at the University of Maryland and a former CNN correspondent, told Variety. An insider source also told Radar that Licht's vision and new management style is worrisome to the network's star personalities, like Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon worried, as they were 'used to being treated like stars, not staff.'  Don Lemon...
    "No, no, they actually weren't," Hochstein claimed. "That's just factually not true." Gas prices were, in fact, increasing before last fall. When Biden took office in January 2021, the average price of gas was under $2.50 per gallon, steadily rising throughout Biden's presidency before spiking this spring. When Hochstein finally addressed Roberts' main question, he of course attributed decreasing gas prices to actions taken by the Biden administration "Now, 'Why are they going down if the war is still raging?' It's a great question," Hochstein said. "The answer is because we’ve actually taken a lot of different actions in order to bring the prices down. Unfortunately, we live in an era where we want to have instant gratification that when you take an action you see the reaction immediately — sometimes it takes time in the market." Those actions, according to Hochstein, include Biden's decision to release oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and Saudi Arabia increasing its production by a meager figure. However, GasBuddy petroleum analyst Patrick DeHann has explained that oil from the SPR is not "actively...

    Fox News “hard news” anchor Sandra Smith took Fox News’ oil industry shilling to 11 when she basically composed an anti-Biden press release live on the air for energy flack Claire Chase. President Joe Biden and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki have made a regular habit of smacking around oil industry talking points — often fed to them by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy — like those three women smacked around Kurt Russell at the end of Death Proof. Psaki, in particular, is fond of pointing out the over 9,000 unused oil permits that have already been approved and telling reporters like Doocy to go ahead and ask the oil companies why they’re not drilling. And so it was that Chase ended up a guest on Tuesday’s edition of Fox News’ America’s Newsroom, where Smith played clips of Psaki and Biden, and then led the oil flack through her talking points like a sherpa with a GPS and a Mapquest printout, just in case. Now, a lot of what went on in this segment is a matter...
    Media critics are calling for Brian Stelter to be fired after failing to report the 'open secret' affair between top boss Jeff Zucker and staffer Allison Gollust.   'The network needs to step up and fire Brian Stelter,' a CNN insider tells DailyMail.com. 'He is allegedly our top media reporter - yet he failed to report on the scoop that everyone in the office knew. And if he wants to say he didn't know, he is truly terrible at his job.'  Stelter is the chief media correspondent for CNN and host of the CNN program Reliable Sources. In a statement on Wednesday, Zucker said he was stepping down as CNN president for failing to disclose his relationship with Gollust when he was being interviewed as part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo.  He and Gollust claim the romance started during COVID, but media sources tell DailyMail.com it long predates the pandemic and was an open-secret in the CNN offices.  Insiders are calling for Brian Stelter to be fired after failing to report the 'open secret' affair between top boss Jeff Zucker...
    Brian Williams, who remade his career as an MSNBC host after losing his job as NBC Nightly News anchor for making false claims about a wartime story, is leaving the network after 28 years. Williams said in a note to colleagues that 'following much reflection,' he had decided to exit when his contract ends in December. 'This is the end of a chapter and the beginning of another,' Williams wrote. 'There are many things I want to do, and I'll pop up again somewhere.' Willliams, 62, said he will take a few months off to spend time with his family. Brian Williams, who remade his career as an MSNBC host after losing his job as NBC Nightly News anchor for making false claims about a wartime story, is leaving the network Williams was NBC News' top anchor from 2004 until 2015, when he was suspended for falsely claiming that he had been in a helicopter hit by enemy fire during the Iraq War.  A subsequent investigation found that he had made other inaccurate statements about his experiences covering events, and...
    Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer questioned why Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) does not “fly the flag” for the United States — decrying the remark she made comparing the United States to Israel, Hamas, Afghanistan, and the Taliban. “We not only saw her trying to walk this back but the entire squad came to her defense, claiming that criticisms of her aren’t about policy or her positions on issues, but about Islamophobia and trying to silence women of color in the House,” Katie Pavlich said regarding Omar’s tweet. “You had [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] saying she wishes Democrats in the party would come to them and speak up these things privately before they condemned her publicly, but she is making these statements publicly.” Pavlich went on to note that while she has the support of other progressive House members, many fellow Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), have condemned the remark. “She is the Vice Chair of a subcommittee of the Foreign Affairs Committee, and yet she is equating the United States and Israel to U.S. government-sanctioned and designated terrorist organizations,” she continued. “It is not that she...
    The crew at Chicago’s WGN Morning News held a suspenseful and hilarious debate about whether they should kill a “monster fly” that took over the studio, and landed on the news desk. Read no further if you’d rather watch the video without spoilers. It was a tense 90 seconds or so as the news team conducted an emotional tug-of-war over the fly’s fate. Anchor Larry Potash appeared to send the fly, well, flying by slamming his laptop shut, and empathetic sports anchor Pat Tomasulo leaned in and noted “Oh, he’s got a busted wing, this poor guy.” “Did you hurt him?” co-anchor Robin Baumgarten asked, accusatorily. “I didn’t touch him!” Tomasulo protested, as Baumgarten cried “Don’t touch it!” “Kill him!” weather reporter Paul Konrad demanded. “I’m trying to help him,” Tomasulo said, eventually helping the fly achieve flight with a flick of his finger. But the story didn’t end there. About an hour later, Konrad interrupted his weather report to say “That blasted fly that I said we should have killed? Just landed on my head a second ago.” Someone...
    The Fox 5 station in Washington, DC, has suspended a news anchor who tweeted his annoyance that obese Americans have been getting the vaccine early before being slammed for his comments and a backhanded apology on Twitter.   Blake McCoy, who is the co-anchor for Fox 5's evening broadcasts, made the remarks Tuesday afternoon.  'I'm annoyed obese people of all ages get priority vaccine access before all essential workers,' he tweeted.  'When most stayed home, we went into work everyday last March, April, May and everyday since putting ourselves & loved ones at risk. Vaccinate all essential workers. Then obese.'   He later deleted the tweet and issued an apology, saying: 'Earlier today I Tweeted something insensitive and offensive. I truly regret my words and want to apologize. I have deleted my tweet and ask that you accept my sincere apology.'  The Fox 5 station in Washington, DC, has suspended news anchor Blake McCoy (pictured) who tweeted his annoyance that obese Americans have been getting the vaccine early before being slammed for his comments and a backhanded apology on Twitter ...
    Fox News, and Sean Hannity in particular, have been very hesitant to criticize Senator Ted Cruz’s decision to abandon his freezing constituents in Texas and seek refuge at a resort in Cancun. When the network finally reported the news for the first time on Thursday, they accepted Cruz’s excuse that he was merely doing the “fatherly” thing by accompanying his two young daughters to Mexico. But when Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace appeared Friday morning on Fox’s local station in Dallas, the tone was a bit different. Laughing to himself, Wallace said, “People also take a little bit of delight in seeing politicians who have attacked other politicians for leaving the scene—and Ted Cruz has done that plenty of times himself—and now suddenly he’s caught.” “The one twist, the Cruz twist in this, is I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a politician who blamed his 10 and 12-year-old daughters for his bad decision,” he continued. “Throwing them under the bus was a unique twist.” In return, local anchor Tim Ryan joked that Cruz’s wife Heidi is “very smart,...
    Former Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy said Thursday that he’s “not real sure anymore” what the Republican Party “stands for” as he blamed President Donald Trump for the Capitol riot Wednesday. “If you really wanted to ask me a tough question, ask me what the Republican Party stands for,” Gowdy told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “It used to be law and order, it used to be things I could rattle off for you. I’m not real sure anymore.” (RELATED: Jonathan Turley Says Removing Trump With The 25th Amendment Is ‘Extremely Unlikely’ But ‘Can Happen’) Gowdy said he did not know what role, if any, Trump would continue to play in the Republican Party but suggested the president incited the riot. “Did you listen to the president’s speech yesterday?” Gowdy asked Fox News host Sandra Smith. “Then you tell me. Who said that? Who said go fight? Who blamed Mike Pence and blamed Republicans and said the election was stolen?” Gowdy asked. Gowdy joins other prominent Republicans who have chastised Trump for the destruction and violence. There have been...
    With just days to go before she helms Fox News’ election coverage, Martha MacCallum is preparing for an on-air marathon. The longtime anchor, who hosts “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” is working out daily and sipping green juice while quarantining after recently coming into contact with someone with COVID-19. She’s been recording from home in New Jersey, but will be in the studio on Election Day on Tuesday, she told Page Six. “I run or workout every day,” she said. “I really need the fresh air and I like to feel that my body has had a good physical test. I also have a green smoothie with spinach and mint every morning — and election day is no different. “The election could be a landslide or go on for a month, we really don’t know — but we’re prepared for both.” MacCallum is the network’s lead political co-anchor alongside chief political anchor Bret Baier, hosting debates, town halls and election night coverage. In the 2020 election cycle, she has co-moderated town halls with former 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Senator...
    Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace sounded a note of caution over a host of U.S. law enforcement reform proposals, as Democrats in Congress are set to release their bill this week and the Minneapolis city council pledged on Sunday to abolish the city's police force. "On the one hand, if [police officers have] done bad things you certainly want them to be held responsible," said Wallace on "Fox and Friends" on Monday. "On the other hand, you do worry that some of these reforms would make it harder for police to do their job." "We certainly don't want brutality and we don't want discrimination on the part of the police force," he continued. "While we want to reform the system, we don't want to do so at such an extent that police are afraid to do their jobs." FOX NEWS SUNDAY ANCHOR CHRIS WALLACE ON THE DAY HE REPORTED FROM BEHIND BARS Wallace argued that there is merit in demands to increase police accountability, for instance, by allowing the public to see whether specific police officers have been investigated for misconduct. However, he warned that other proposals "probably shouldn't...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- To say the last week has been a lot would be an understatement. Watching George Floyd die on video while being pinned down by multiple police officers is traumatic. Hearing him cry out for help, for his mother, is traumatic.Yet sadly, this is a trauma black Americans have had to endure time and time again; watching someone who could be them, or someone they love die because of systematic racism and police brutality. The whole thing feels like a funeral - the heaviness, the sadness, the pain.What's encouraging this time seeing people of other races, who have not been impacted in the same way by police brutality and systemic racism speaking out about it, putting actions behind those words, and thinking about the role they can plan in creating real and long lasting change.California Gov. Gavin Newsom said, "We have to own up to some very difficult things. The black community is not responsible for what's happening in this country right now, we are. We are, our institutions over and over again, we are responsible we...
