    Gas prices will continue to trend downward in July after reaching a record high of more than $5 per gallon last month, President Joe Biden's economic adviser assured on Sunday.  The nationwide average price at the pump is now down nearly 50 cents after hitting roughly $5.02 on June 16, according to the American Auto Association. It's still significantly higher than the average $3.17 per gallon seen at this time last year - but the figure is likely to keep decreasing in the near future, according to Jared Bernstein, a member of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. 'What I can say is that I think it's very likely that gas prices continue to track down, say, for the rest of this month,' he said on CNN's State of the Union.  He added, 'And I say that not because not just the oil price is down 20 percent, but wholesale prices are down as well. And those two tend to track each other.'  The White House has been ill at ease over the very visible burden that rising gas...

    The U.S. Dept. of Justice should prosecute Donald Trump for his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, says a political scientist and Bloomberg opinion writer. Jonathan Bernstein, who has a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and taught at the University of Texas at San Antonio and DePauw University, says “it’s just not that hard a choice. Trump’s crimes are too important, and too dangerous, to ignore.” After offering up a string of reasons why DOJ should tread lightly, he stresses that the “Justice Department says that it investigates crimes, not people, and that’s the way it should be. Nobody should want the Justice Department to be turned against the leaders of out-parties for offenses that would never have been charged against anyone else.” READ MORE: Mary Trump: Uncle Donald's mental state is 'deteriorating' Bernstein adds that prosecuting a former president is “something that should be reserved for the gravest circumstances,” and he apparently concludes that Trump’s actions qualify. “Experts seem to believe that the evidence is there and that conviction is likely for Trump’s efforts to pressure...
    As the January 6 hearings move along, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s select committee continues to present a mountain of damning evidence showing how treacherous former President Donald Trump and his allies were in the weeks after the 2020 presidential election — treachery that made President Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal of the 1970s pale in comparison. Major Watergate-era figures such as Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks and journalist Carl Bernstein haven’t been shy about explaining why they consider Trump’s treachery so much more dangerous than Nixon and Watergate, which is saying a lot because Watergate, during the 1970s, was downright shocking to millions of Americans. The January 6 hearings come on the 50th anniversary of Watergate. It was half a century ago, on June 17, 1972, that Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters in Washington, D.C.’s Watergate Office Building became the target of a break-in — eventually leading to Nixon’s resignation in August 1974. Journalist/author David Greenberg, in an essay published by Politico on June 19, lays out some reasons why Watergate, after 50 years, has maintained such a grip...
    Former President Donald Trump has surpassed his predecessor Richard Nixon in being the poster child of corruption, according to Watergate sleuths Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. The pair, famous for how they helped expose the Watergate scandal in the Nixon administration that began nearly 50 years ago, came together to write a column for the Washington Post on Sunday, days ahead of when the House committee investigating the Capitol riot is scheduled to hold the first in a series of summer hearings, calling Trump the first "seditious" president. Whereas "instruments of American democracy finally stopped Nixon dead in his tracks, forcing the only resignation of a president in American history," Woodward and Bernstein write Trump "not only sought to destroy the electoral system through false claims of voter fraud and unprecedented public intimidation of state election officials, but he also then attempted to prevent the peaceful transfer of power to his duly elected successor, for the first time in American history." CARL BERNSTEIN SAYS JAN. 6 COMMITTEE HAS EVIDENCE TO SHOW 'REAL CONSPIRACY' Trump engaged in a "deception that exceeded...
    On Friday’s “MSNBC Prime,” White House Council of Economic Advisers member Jared Bernstein refused to admit he got inflation wrong the same way Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen earlier in the week admitted she got inflation wrong — in part due to her failure to fully understand supply problems — and argued that what he said back in 2021 “was very much the case.” And “I’m not going to re-litigate who was right and who was wrong a year ago.” After playing a clip of Bernstein downplaying the longevity of inflation in October 2021, host Mehdi Hasan asked, “Do you want to join with Janet Yellen and apologize for getting that analysis wrong?” Bernstein responded, “No, I mean, what I said then was very much the case. And, in fact, at the time, the Federal Reserve, virtually every economic forecaster, the Congressional Budget Office were all saying what I said there. Look, I think the key question right now is what are we doing to help ease prices at the pump? I’m not going to re-litigate who was right and who...
    Tuesday on CNN’s “At This Hour,” White House Council of Economic Advisers member Jared Bernstein called on the American people to judge President Joe Biden on his “efforts” to solve inflation rather than the results thus far. Bernstein advised that tackling inflation was Biden’s “top domestic priority” and said the president would continue working on it. “I think the American people have every right to judge our administration and the president’s words by looking at our efforts on precisely that issue,” Bernstein stated. “When the president says it is his top domestic priority, he means it, and we have to show that to the American people. He’s been doing so, and he will continue to do so.” “In fact, while we’re certainly upping those efforts, especially in terms of our public-facing comments this month, if you listen to every speech the president has given on the economy, he’s talked about not only what a challenge this is for American households but what we have been doing and what we’re going to continue to do in areas of supply chains, in...
    (CNN)There are plenty of reasons for that feeling of economic doom that's going around: Worst start for the stock market in 80-plus years. Highest inflation in 40-plus years. Largest single interest rate hike in 20-plus years. Dimmest public view of the US economy in 10-plus years. And there's very little President Joe Biden or anyone else can do but sit back and watch like the rest of us. The stock market has been creating its own reality for years. Energy prices are set by OPEC, which isn't increasing oil production to anybody's liking quite yet. The supply chain problems emanate from China, which has its own economic troubles. The interest rate hike announced Wednesday by the Federal Reserve, which operates independently from the White House, will make it harder for home and car buyers and businesses to get access to cheap money. The Fed's rate hike of half a percentage point is large, which helped push stocks lower Thursday. But the federal funds target rate, which now stands at 1%, is still historically low...
    It appears the results of the network's latest poll, conducted by SSRS from April 28 to May 1, were so bleak for Biden and the Democrats that no amount of spin could make things appear better. The poll showed that a majority of American adults believe the president's policies have hurt the economy, and eight in 10 said the government isn't doing enough to combat inflation. Only a dismal 23% rated economic conditions as even somewhat good, the lowest mark since November 2011. And by a four-to-one margin, Americans said they are more likely to hear something bad than good about the economy. Economic pessimism even crossed party lines, as a near-universal 94% of Republicans rated current economic conditions in the U.S. as poor, joined by a whopping 81% of independents and 54% of Democrats. Biden's overall approval rating on the economy has cratered to just 34%, with 66% disapproving. Yet in the face of all the bad news, the White House continued to push misleading messages. While speaking on CNN's "New Day," White House economic adviser Jared Bernstein suggested...
    White House economics adviser Jared Bernstein argued that overturning Roe v. Wade and rolling back abortion rights would have dire financial consequences, including for red states. Bernstein gave an interview to CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Thursday, who pressed him over President Joe Biden’s struggling economic numbers and the possibility of an oncoming recession. At one point, Keilar asked about the uproar over Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked Supreme Court opinion in order to ask Bernstein what it might mean for the economy. Bernstein said his research tells him that “when you deny access to reproductive rights in general, but abortion rights in particular to women, they have persistently worse economic outcomes. “Financially, it’s like losing a job,” he continued. “It’s like being evicted, it’s like losing health insurance, it’s like going to the hospital in terms of its impact on their finances.” Bernstein insisted that all conventional indicators of financial health are “significantly damaged when we restrict access to abortion,” especially for younger women and women of color. This prompted Keilar to ask if red states would see a bigger economic...
    Last year, the monstrous Bernardinelli-Bernstein comet (also known as C/2014 UN271) was discovered by the eponymous University of Pennsylvania astronomers Gary Bernstein and Pedro Bernardinelli. The pair called it the “nearly spherical cow of comets” in their paper about the discovery, but it wasn’t long until the world dubbed it the “megacomet” for being an absolute unit of a space object. While the megacomet fell out of the main space news spotlight, NASA astronomers set the the Hubble Space Telescope’s sights on the object in the months since—and discovered how truly immense it is. A new paper published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters on Tuesday confirmed that Bernardinelli-Bernstein had a nucleus—the icy core at the center of all comets—that’s more than 80 miles wide. That’s roughly 50 times larger than other comets and the largest ever observed. “This comet is literally the tip of the iceberg for many thousands of comets that are too faint to see in the more distant parts of the solar system,” David Jewitt, a professor of planetary science and astronomy at the UCLA and...
    (CNN)A comet with a nucleus larger than the state of Rhode Island is heading our way, but Earth is in no danger of a "Don't Look Up" situation, astronomers say. Although comets are most recognizable for their streaming tails, which can stretch for millions of miles, the heart of a comet is its solid nucleus. This nucleus is made of ice and dust, which forms a dirty snowball. While most of the known comet nuclei measure a few miles across, astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope spotted Comet C/2014 UN271 with a nucleus that reaches 85 miles across. That's more than twice the width of Rhode Island. This nucleus is about 50 times larger than those of other comets, and it has an estimated mass of 500 trillion tons, which is 100,000 times greater than the mass of a typical comet.

    LAS VEGAS — The Pac-12 tournament should provide an impressive amount of entertainment this week at T-Mobile Arena. The on-court action might even be intriguing. With Bill Walton on the call for several Pac-12 Networks broadcasts, mirth and mayhem — or is it nonsense and lunacy? — are sure to rule the airwaves. One of the greatest players in college basketball history is one of the sport’s most polarizing broadcasters. But what’s it like to work alongside Walton during a broadcast? How does he prepare for games? Does he even prepare? Also, do you have to know every Grateful Dead songs by heart to receive the assignment, or only half of them? We asked the three play-by-play announcers who know Walton best: Dave Pasch, who serves as Walton’s foil — err, sidekick on ESPN broadcasts; Ted Robinson, who works with Walton on the Pac-12 Networks; and Roxy Bernstein, who pairs with Walton on both networks. As you read the following first-person accounts, please note: The interviews were conducted separately (last week) but have been pieced together to create the feel...
    Carl Bernstein's memoir of his apprenticeship in reporting, "Chasing History: A Kid in the Newsroom," is on the surface a story about journalism, and about America, in a historical period that to most of us now seems long in the past. Bernstein's first job in the business came in 1960, as a 16-year-old "copy boy" for the Evening Star, at the time the No. 2 daily in Washington, D.C. (The Star ceased publication in 1981, part of a wave of newspaper consolidation that prefigured the industry-wide collapse of the internet era.) This book begins there, allowing for a bit of back story, and concludes in 1966, after Bernstein had left the Star and spent a year at the Elizabeth Daily Journal in New Jersey (a paper that, almost unbelievably, had a circulation of 50,000). He was about to return to Washington and take a job with the Star's better-known competitor — but that story is not this one. I was both relieved and delighted to discover that "Chasing History" is not an elder statesman's nostalgic account of the Good Old...
    With climate change and global warming setting record temperatures across the globe, researchers have set out to learn how increasingly hot weather is impacting different groups of people. What they discovered is that heat played a stronger role in ER visits among racial minority children and low-income children. In a comprehensive study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, researchers explored the relationship between warm seasons and emergency department visits to U.S. children’s hospitals. Lead author of the study, Dr. Aaron Bernstein, said, “We find that heat magnifies the inequities that we have seen in other arenas, which has not before been shown (in children).” The correlation between kids of color and ER visits for heat-related incidents could be tied to a few different things. For one, there are areas known as heat islands that are several degrees hotter than the surrounding areas and are more likely to house Black and brown populations. According to Yahoo!, children’s health and climate change expert Dr. Lisa Patel said she regularly sees children come into the hospital from urban heat islands. She said,...
    During a recent appearance on the Daily Beast’s podcast, “The New Abnormal,” veteran journalist Carl Bernstein discussed his new book, “Chasing History: A Kid in the Newsroom” — which looks back on the beginning of his journalism career. Bernstein, speaking to co-host Molly Jong-Fast, also shared his thoughts on the state of journalism in 2022, the modern Republican Party and Fox News’ popularity with its viewers. Bernstein, now 77, became famous in the 1970s for his reporting on Watergate with his Washington Post colleague Bob Woodward. The duo’s Watergate reporting was so famous that in 1976, it was depicted in the Hollywood film “All the President’s Men” (starring Dustin Hoffman as Bernstein and Robert Redford as Woodward). But Bernstein had a career in journalism before Watergate, and in “Chasing History,” he remembers being hired by the Washington Star when he was only 16 back in 1960. Speaking to Jong-Fast, Bernstein complained that today’s reporters aren’t outgoing enough. “People don’t answer their telephones anymore,” Bernstein told Jong-Fast. “It’s not about doing most of the reporting on the telephone. It’s about...
    (CNN)Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein has a message for reporters: "It's not rocket science."Bernstein is referring to the basics of newsgathering -- the tools and skills reporters use to assemble facts, tell stories. "Today, we see how much reporting -- if it's called that -- is done from people looking up things on Google and thinking, 'Oh, that's how I'm going to get the story,'" Bernstein told Anderson Cooper. "You need to be listening to people, and you need to be learning their stories. You need to go to their relatives. You need to go to their bosses, and you just keep persevering."He should know: Bernstein's dogged reporting for the Washington Post along with Bob Woodward uncovered the Watergate political scandal that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon in 1974.Read MoreJUST WATCHEDSecret recordings from inside Nixon's White House capture talk of hush moneyReplayMore Videos ...MUST WATCHSecret recordings from inside Nixon's White House capture talk of hush money 01:06Bernstein, a political analyst for CNN, spoke this week on "Anderson Cooper Full Circle" about his newly released memoir, "Chasing History: A...
    Some liberal media commentators predicted Sunday that West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin’s vote against President Biden’s Build Back Better plan could very well spell the end of democracy. Manchin announced on "Fox News Sunday" that he will be a definitive "no" on voting for the BBB plan after lengthy debate. LIBERAL PUNDITS REACT TO MANCHIN’S ‘NO’ ON BUILD BACK BETTER: ‘A LOT TO PROCESS’ "I’ve always said this, Bret: if I can’t go home and explain to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it," Manchin told guest host Bret Baier. "And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there."

    The legendary composer behind West Side Story ended up resenting its success - and he wasn't too keen on the Oscar-winning film adaptation either, his daughter has revealed. Jamie Bernstein, the eldest daughter of Leonard Bernstein, who wrote the iconic musical in the 1950s, said he became frustrated by the phenomenon and how he had to work harder for his other works to get noticed. It comes as Steven Spielberg's new adaptation of the Romeo and Juliet-inspired classic, set in New York, is set to be released next month. 'It became a sort of albatross around his neck,' Bernstein told Radio Times.  'He had to work all the harder to get people to focus on his other works, especially his symphonic works.  'He did mention it from time to time, it was a frustration.' 'But you can't really get to complain about having a gigantic success,' she added. Jamie Bernstein, the eldest daughter of Leonard Bernstein (pictured), who created West Side Story in the 1950s, said he became frustrated by the phenomenon and how he had to work harder for...
    CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein said Monday on “Anderson Cooper 360” that he believed former President Donald Trump was a “rogue criminal president.” According to Bernstein, Trump was perpetuating the lie that he won the 2020 presidential election, which is undermining American democracy. Discussing former President Donald Trump’s lawsuit to block the January 6 select committee from getting documents citing executive privilege, Bernstein said, “This is clearly not a legitimate exercise of executive privilege.” He continued, “This is about trying to suppress the truth, about a president engaging in illegal acts, anti-constitutional acts, trying to learn what, indeed, he was doing as he tried to thwart the American electoral process. This is not about trying to find out anything about the legitimate functions of the president of the United States and the exercise of his power.” Bernstein added, “This is about a rogue criminal president undermining the Constitution, undermining American democracy. Again, you go back to the Nixon example, but this is even more grievous, particularly because this president tried forever to keep himself in office after the election. After...
    THE largest megacomet ever discovered is hurtling toward the Earth and offering astronomers invaluable insight into the solar system. The Bernardinelli-Bernstein comet was first detected seven years ago and is thought to be up to 100 miles wide - nearly 12 times the size of Mount Everest. 1The Bernardinelli-Bernstein comet - believed to be the largest ever spotted by a human - is expected to arrive in our solar system in 2031Credit: Getty The impressive comet was spotted by and named after University of Pennsylvania astronomers Pedro Bernardinelli and Gary Bernstein. Last month, the pair published a paper outlining everything they know about the object based on seven years of data collection and a series of sightings over the summer. Researchers described the comet as a "time machine" bearing unprecedented information about how the solar system was born and evolved. “The story told by the comet would tell us of what existed in the solar system billions of years ago," Bernardinelli told The Daily Beast. "We can use that to understand the things we...
    Journalist Carl Bernstein and John Dean, former White House counsel under President Richard Nixon in the early 1970s, both have vivid memories of the Watergate scandal — and they have warned that in terms of corruption, Nixon paled in comparison to Donald Trump's presidency. CNN's Anderson Cooper recently interviewed Bernstein and Dean separately, getting Bernstein's thoughts on Trump's attempt to pressure U.S. Department of Justice officials to help him overturn the 2020 election results. The U.S. Senate recently issued a damning report on Trump's efforts to bully DOJ officials in December 2020 and early January 2021. Discussing that report with Cooper, the 77-year-old Bernstein said, "There has been a coup, led by the president of the United States to undermine the Constitution — and possibly and likely, a criminal conspiracy as well. And all of these things that are laid out in the report are incontrovertible evidence of the president of the United States trying to overwhelm constitutional responsibility, the laws of the United States and the Constitution of the United States." Bernstein went on to say that "we are...
    Seven years ago, a pair of scientists scouring high-resolution images of space caught fleeting glimpses of a bright round object peeking from a vast cloud of icy objects more than two billion miles from Earth. As if that whole scene wasn’t exciting enough, the object appeared to be a huge comet. Thought to be between 60 and 100 miles wide, it was the biggest comet a human being had ever witnessed. And it seemed to be heading toward us, very loosely speaking. Last month the discoverers of the giant object—University of Pennsylvania astronomers Gary Bernstein and Pedro Bernardinelli—combined their earlier data with fresh sightings of the distant object this summer and confirmed their suspicions. Yep, it’s a megacomet. “The nearly spherical cow of comets,” they quipped in the title of their paper, which they submitted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal Letters on Sept. 23. And the pair have also learned the comet’s trajectory has it swinging between Uranus and Saturn in 2031. Besides setting up an astronomically great joke, the Bernardinelli-Bernstein comet is a very rare and unique...
    THE largest comet every discovered is heading our way and it's about 11.5 times the size of Mount Everest. Astronomers have their eye on the huge comet called Bernardinelli-Bernstein as it's heading towards our Solar System. 2The comet seen in October 2017Credit: Noirlab 2 Bernardinelli-Bernstein is said to be at least 62 miles wide.

    A far right wing anti-vaxx, anti-mask commentator who threatened to shoot anyone who even tried to vaccinate him against the coronavirus only to say recently he had contracted COVID-19 is lashing out at those on the left he says mocked him. In an obscenity-laden tirade Josh Bernstein went as apoplectic as anyone can while battling the grave disease and the exhaustion he admits comes with it. Last week Bernstein called his bout with COVID "brutal," and "unbearable," but on on Saturday Newsweek reported he contacted them to say his COVID test came back negative. Despite that, in his latest video he appears in what he called his COVID quarantine room appearing to talk about what having the disease "taught" him. Bernstein claims in the clip below that "left wing ________" wished him "death," and claims that list includes Newsweek and Right Wing Watch. NCRM found no evidence those publications did so. Back in April Bernstein promised a "lead injection" to anyone who tried to inject him with the vaccine. "Resist the vaccine at all costs," Bernstein told his audience back...
    CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein said Tuesday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that former President Donald Trump was willing to “destabilize the world” to stay in office during the final days of his presidency. Bernstein said, “Well, first of all, this book gives a picture of a deranged demagogue and threat to democracy, as well as a threat to the stability of the world such as we have never seen in our era. So, the rabid nature of Trump’s character, combined with his power and willingness to do anything to stay in office, including to destabilize the world through saying I have to be the president of the United States. Throwing real fear into both our allies and our enemies that the country, itself, was out of control under Trump as he entered the final day of his office. We’ve never seen such a destabilizing moment in our history in this country, led by a president of the United States. A madman and this is a picture of a madman and the people, including the Republican Party, who enabled this madman....

    Bernstein said that he asked the student repeatedly to correctly put on the mask, but she reportedly refused. He then reportedly attempted to explain to the student that due to his age and health disposition — having type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and more — he was further at risk of developing complications should he contract COVID-19. "That's it," he reportedly told the class in response to her continued refusals. "I'm retired." He told the student paper that he would not risk his life teaching in a classroom after having served his country in the Air Force.

But what many unfamiliar with the showcase might not realize is that feature documentaries have kicked off the Manhattan event for the past eight years — a testament to its rep as a key nonfiction showcase. “We definitely strive to platform docs in a way that’s unique among festivals that are not just doc festivals,” says Cara Cusumano, festival director and vp programming. “It’s often the place films and filmmakers pop and where sales happen.” Cusumano cites 2011 as an inflection point. “That year we had in our documentary competition The Bully Project [directed by Lee Hirsch], Jiro Dreams of Sushi [David Gelb] and Bombay Beach [Alma Har’el],” she says. “All three of those broke out, and David Gelb...
    This past year 2020 has focused on climate impact investments. While it is true that investments in this area have come to a standstill, it is also true that the trend is very positive, taking into account that the focus on climate is increasingly the order of the day. According to Miguel Luzárraga, Country Head Iberia of Alliance Bernstein, “The impact that the Covid-19 pandemic is generating in our society and in the way of investing and seeing things, generates more flow of interest for these investments. Every cloud has a silver lining. And from Alliance Bernstein we consider that it is a good situation both for us, as well as for the climate and for investors ”. The Covid-19 pandemic has served to raise awareness about the climate impact. “We identified three forces for all this we are experiencing”, qualifies André Themudo, head of the distribution business in Spain, Portugal and Andorra at BlackRock. “A regulatory force, a force of society, and of course, an economic force. This conviction maintains billions of investments around the world and gives...

She's been accused of copying other designers — in October, Bernstein became embroiled in a legal dispute with The Great Eros after the brand said she copied its designs.   She's also been called out for teaching her followers how to edit out their cellulite on Instagram, and received backlash for vacationing in the Hamptons during the pandemic.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Mega-influencer Danielle Bernstein has 2.5 million Instagram followers, and her success story all started with a student-run blog.  At 18 years old, the Long Island-native transferred from the University of Wisconsin-Madison to the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and started a website called WeWoreWhat, which aimed to document New York City street style. Bernstein has since launched multiple fashion brands, collaborated...
    CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein Thursday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” called Donald Trump a “secessionist, seditious president of the United States who inspired and celebrated a riot to burn down the Capitol.” Cooper said, “I wanted to bring in someone who masterfully told the story of Nixon’s final days, Carl Bernstein.” He continued, “Carl, President Trump lashing out over comparisons to Nixon is particularly interesting. In ways you and I talked about this, I think it was last night, the end to this presidency you were saying is much worse than Nixon’s.” Bernstein said, “Well, first of all, Nixon was not a secessionist, seditious president of the United States who inspired and celebrated a riot to burn down the Capitol, which is really what occurred. He encouraged it. Those people went there because of his incitement.” He added, “Nixon was in a different category in that regard. He was a real criminal president who deserved having to leave office, and Republicans got him out of office, forced his resignation. Very different than what we’ve seen with Trump. The Republicans...
    In his dotage, CNN’s Carl Bernstein has not only disgraced himself after being caught telling flat-out lies, he’s become a punch-line as one of CNNLOL’s far-left commentators with his repeated LOL claims that pretty much everything a Republican does is “WORSE THAN WATERGATE! What makes this especially hilarious is that, along with Bob Woodward, Bernstein became co-famous and won a co-Pulitzer for co-breaking the actual Watergate scandal. So you would think Bernstein would actually know when something truly is  “worse than Watergate” and would be circumspect before bellowing such a thing. But the man is such a self-parody, he’s pretty sure all kinds of stuff are worse than Watergate. Below is as thorough of a rundown as I could come up with. I’m sure there are other examples of Bernstein screaming about stuff being worse than Watergate, like at the dry cleaners when no one can find his tux… Just this Sunday, Bernstein announced the leaked phone call between President Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger was worse than Watergate. He said on CNN: It’s not déjà vu,...
    In California: COVID spreading fastest here. And anti-mask protests break out across state Langer says Warner very likely to play through pain Former NBC Sports Chicago anchor Leila Rahimi becomes the first female regular weekday anchor at 670 The Score For a long while, there’s been quite a bit of discussion about the relatively few women in prominent sports media roles, whether that’s with game broadcasts, various studio shows, or other sports media roles. An interesting change on that front comes from Chicago’s 670 The Score, which announced Monday that they’ll bring in Leila Rahimi as a regular morning show (9 a.m. to noon) co-host alongside Dan Bernstein. Rahimi had been a NBC Sports Chicago contributor and anchor since 2015, but was let go by that RSN in August as part of a wave of cuts at NBC RSNs. Since then, she had been co-hosting with Bernstein on Wednesday mornings (Bernstein has mostly been doing his show solo since wide Entercom layoffs in April hit Connor McKnight, his past cohost). Jeff Agrest of The Chicago Sun-Times has some quotes from...
    Carl Bernstein held up President Donald Trump’s call with phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger as evidence of criminal actions to undo his election loss. CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield spoke to Bernstein on Sunday in the midst of wall-to-wall coverage on Trump’s phone call where he pressured Raffensperger to help him overturn the state’s results from the 2020 election. When asked if this reminded him of breaking the Watergate scandal, Bernstein said “this was something far worse than Watergate.” We have both a criminal president of the United States and a subversive president of the United States at the same time in this one person subverting the very basis of our democracy, and willing to act criminally in that subversion. Bernstein called the audio “the ultimate smoking gun tape” and proof of Trump’s attempts “to undermine the electoral system and illegally, improperly and immorally try to instigate a coup in which he remains president of the United States.” “In any other presidency,” he continued, “this tape would be evidence enough to result in the impeachment of...
    President Donald Trump has vented his fury at late Senator John McCain, following the release of newly declassified text messages from former FBI agent Peter Strzok indicating that McCain leaked the infamous 'dirty dossier' to legendary journalist Carl Bernstein. 'Check out last in his class John McCain, one of the most overrated people in D.C.' Trump tweeted late on Wednesday of the Arizona Republican who died of brain cancer in 2018, linking to a report on the new messages. The new text messages, released by Republican Senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley on Wednesday, include a January 9, 2017 exchange between Strzok and Lisa Page, then the FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair. 'Carl Bernstein (yes that Carl) called [Office of Public Affairs], said he got a 'dossier' from McCain,' Strzok texted Page, who quickly replied: 'Awesome, let Carl run it down then.' President Donald Trump has vented his fury at late Senator John McCain, following the release of newly declassified text messages from former FBI agent Peter Strzok The messages indicate John...
    Danielle Bernstein and Christina Viviani grew up leading parallel lives: fashion-obsessed teens from the suburbs fantasizing about haute couture careers in the big city. From Long Island and Detroit, respectively, they moved from lowly fashion-closet internships to partnerships with some of the world’s biggest designers. They both attended the It-girl mecca Fashion Institute of Technology, where Bernstein, then a burgeoning fashion blogger, was briefly a fan of Viviani’s first underwear line. Now, their paths have come crashing together again, in a legal battle that has spawned tabloid headlines and raised questions about what, exactly, it means to be an original. Bernstein is better known to her millions of fans by her Instagram handle, WeWoreWhat, a massively popular account where the glossy-haired 28-year-old meticulously documents all of her trendy outings and outfits. As an early fashion blogger, Bernstein helped pioneer the role of influencer, definitively proving the power of envy to drive clothing sales. But as a designer, she is arguably less innovative: Over the last four months, she has been accused no less than five times of ripping off other...
    Journalist Carl Bernstein is reminding us all that he owes Senate Republicans nothing, least of all protection as they cower in public and let President Donald Trump make a mockery of our democracy. Bernstein tweeted Sunday: “I'm not violating any pledge of journalistic confidentially in reporting this: 21 Republican Sens–in convos w/ colleagues, staff members, lobbyists, W. House aides–have repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for Trump & his fitness to be POTUS.” They represent almost 40% of the 53 Senate Republicans. “With few exceptions, their craven public silence has helped enable Trump’s most grievous conduct—including undermining and discrediting the US the electoral system,” Bernstein tweeted.  He listed senators: Rob Portman, of Ohio; Lamar Alexander, of Tennessee; Ben Sasse, of Nebraska; Roy Blunt, of Missouri; Susan Collins, of Maine; Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska; John Cornyn, of Texas; John Thune, of South Dakota; Mitt Romney, of Utah; Mike Braun, of Indiana; Todd Young, of Indiana; Tim Scott, of South Carolina; Rick Scott, of Florida; Marco Rubio, of Florida; Chuck Grassley, of Iowa; Richard Burr, of North Carolina; Pat Toomey, of Pennsylvania; Martha McSally, of...
    'Their craven public silence has helped enable Trump's most grievous conduct,' journalist Carl Bernstein said. Reporter Carl Bernstein tweeted on Sunday that 21 Senate Republicans have privately expressed strong opposition to Donald Trump. Bernstein, famous for his reporting on the Watergate scandal that brought down the Richard Nixon presidency, noted that the 21 senators had maintained silence about their views in public. They have also voted with Trump at almost every opportunity.
    Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin took the lead on The View on Monday as the show kicked off the week by discussing how Republicans are conducting themselves in light of President Donald Trump’s 2020 defeat. As the panel took note of Republicans panning Trump’s effort to dispute the election results, they especially took interest in Carl Bernstein naming 21 Republican senators who allegedly have “extreme contempt” for the president behind his back. The show went on by discussing what ramifications people will see for supporting Trump, though Goldberg repeatedly made reference to “a coup trying to happen.” After Joy Behar argued that Republicans remain subservient to Trump for fear of angering him and his “cult,” Goldberg lamented the disinformation that continues to shroud Trump’s post-election legal efforts. “It feels like they’re attempting a coup to me,” Goldberg said. “I know everybody doesn’t want to hear that, but that’s what dictators do when they try to say ‘this election isn’t real, this didn’t happen. I’m going to try to change it.'” As Hostin outlined the Trump team’s numerous setbacks for...
    The Week Reporter Carl Bernstein names 21 GOP senators who ‘repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for Trump’ Political reporters in Washington, D.C., have been saying a lot of Republicans in Congress privately despise President Trump, but few have publicly criticized him — and likewise, few have publicly acknowledged his defeat to President-elect Joe Biden. Carl Bernstein, one half of the journalistic duo that uncovered President Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal, named 21 names on Sunday night, saying that in private conversations, these Republicans senators “have repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for Trump” and his fitness to be president.> The 21 GOP Senators who have privately expressed their disdain for Trump are: Portman, Alexander, Sasse, Blunt, Collins, Murkowski, Cornyn, Thune, Romney, Braun, Young, Tim Scott, Rick Scott, Rubio, Grassley, Burr, Toomey, McSally, Moran, Roberts, Shelby. (2/3)> > — Carl Bernstein (@carlbernstein) November 23, 2020The 21 senators he named include names you would expect, but also some surprises, like Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), Sen. Rick Scott (Fla.), and Senate Majority Whip John Thune (S.D.). The other 18 GOP senators are Rob Portman (Ohio), Lamar Alexander...
    Carl Bernstein suggested on CNN this morning that it’s time to call out Republicans who are saying different things publicly and privately about President Donald Trump. As he called out the president for pushing false claims about the election, Bernstein said journalists need to keep pushing back and sharing the truth. But, he added, “there’s one institution that continues to enable this disinformation disproportionately, and that is the Republican Senate of the United States.” “Having talked to these senators, members of their staff, the Republicans — perhaps half of the Republican members of the Senate despise and disdain Donald Trump. They were happy to see him lose as long as they could hold onto a Senate majority,” Bernstein continued. And then he added, “It’s time that we start calling these senators out, perhaps by name, in terms of what they really believe, what they tell us as reporters on background, because they have enabled part of this disinformation campaign, and even some of them are talking about a ‘coup’ that Donald Trump is trying to initiate here.” You can...
    VIDEO1:2401:24Nasdaq is delivering a warning signal about the rally: Investor Rich BernsteinTrading Nation Institutional Investor Hall of Famer Richard Bernstein sees troublesome activity within the market surge. His problem: Big Tech is the main driver. "Narrow leadership is an end-of-cycle event," the Richard Bernstein Advisors CEO and CIO told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Thursday. According to Bernstein, it's a compelling reason to get cautious. "You want it to be the exact opposite," said Bernstein, who has spent decades on Wall Street and ran strategy for Merrill Lynch. "Early cycles are dominated by broad market leadership." He uses the tech-heavy Nasdaq's outperformance versus the Russell 2000 as a harbinger — referring to it as a dramatic and "very bearish sign for the economy and corporate profits." So far this year, the Nasdaq is up 32% while the Russell 2000, which tracks economically sensitive small-cap stocks, is virtually flat. In a special note to CNBC, Bernstein wrote "... narrow leadership isn't a sign of economic or profits strength. If it's broader leadership (value, cyclicals, small caps) then I think the rally has longer...
