The Daily Caller The Daily Crawler? Mickey Kaus quits Daily Caller after Tucker Carlson pulls critical Fox News column

It’s not unusual to see an avowedly liberal political website take a passionate swipe at MSNBC over an issue, or for a conservative website take some potshots at Fox News. Each side will say the other doesn’t do that but, in fact, you do see it. The conservative website The Daily Caller has some talented writers, but now it’s losing veteran conservative blogger Mickey Kraus, who quit after site owner Tucker Carlson...

Olbermann: The Once and Former King

Olbermann: The Once and Former King By Christine Flowers Keith Olbermann should be used to this by now. Two-bit, Class B second tier provocateurs can’t be terribly surprised when they’re disciplined for the umpteenth time. They thrive on reaction, court controversy and have a masterful way of turning justified castigation into unjustified persecution. Among this motley crew of the mediocre, Olbermann used to be king. For a...

Misinterpreting Brian Williams’ Misremembering

So NBC’s Brian Williams is off his anchor desk for six months — wanna bet it’ll be a LOT longer than that? — and has gone from being a respected anchor to a godsend to comedy writers, internet ridicule, and Jerry Seinfeld punch lines. Up until this month, Williams seemed to be a 21st century anchorman descendent of David Brinkley and Walter Cronkite. His anchor stint and credibility were cut short when he...

Obama Depicted as Rape Suspect in Fox 5 News Graphic Error

Obama Depicted as Rape Suspect in Fox 5 News Graphic Error by Ken Stone In a stroke of Friday the 13th bad luck, Fox 5 San Diego briefly portrayed President Obama as a sex-assault suspect on its 10 o’clock news. At 10:04 p.m., viewers heard anchor Kathleen Bade say: “The only suspect in a sex assault at SDSU will not be charged.” At the same time, a picture of Obama appeared with the legend “NO CHARGES.” The Obama shot lasted about 5...

NBC Finding More Brian Williams Misremembering Examples?

Is NBC still having to check departed anchor Brian Williams’ assertions? It sounds that way – and it sounds like in this instance where there is smoke there is a self-serving exaggerated story: The network’s internal fact-checking investigation is “nowhere near done,” a senior NBC source said Thursday. It has widened beyond just Williams’ initial errors about a 2003 Iraq War mission to include other...

Six Months Won’t Solve Williams’ Woes

Six Months Won’t Solve Williams’ Woes By Peter Funt Brian Williams probably isn’t a liar. Based on recent revelations, amplifications and clarifications, he appears to be a serial exaggerator. To his critics that’s a distinction without a difference, which is why NBC News would be wise to replace him permanently in the anchor chair rather than suspend him for six months. Williams’ case is enlightening,...

Brian Williams Misremembering

Brian Williams Misremembering Raging Moderate by Will Durst There’s a big bad brouhaha over at NBC with anchor Brian Williams misremembering being shot down in a helicopter on a trip to Iraq, when the facts seem to indicate that although he did fly in a helicopter, and was over Iraq, he was not shot down. Well, come on; the guy was close. Got two out of three. They keep you in the bigs with a .667 batting average, right? Well,...

The Sadness of Brian Williams’ Fall

Brian Williams’ fall from grace and his six-month suspension–likely to become permanent–as anchor for the NBC Nightly News, saddens me. While I haven’t seen more than brief clips of his evening news broadcast for years, I always respected his reporting. It isn’t his reporting that has gotten him into trouble though. It’s his celebrity that’s done it. Or more accurately, his reaction to it....

BREAKING: NBC suspends Brian Williams for six months without pay

If Brian Williams was taken off his job for six months it would really be a de facto booting off the NBC News anchor slot. He’d be too much damaged goods to go back to that job. And suspended he is — without pay: It’s anchors away — for six months. NBC brass slapped anchorman Brian Williams with a lengthy six-month suspension Tuesday night. “The suspension will be without pay and is effective immediately,” NBC News honcho...
