CNN Cancels ‘Dr. Drew’ After Hil Claims

CNN Cancels Dr. DrewCNN has canceled Drew Pinsky’s HLN show, Dr. Drew On Call, just eight days after Pinsky made comments on a radio show questioning the health of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Pinsky’s show, which is six years old, will air for the last time Sept. 22.

Mirroring concerns voiced by Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani, Pinsky said on a program aired Aug. 17 that he was “gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care.” A July 2015 letter from Dr. Lisa Bardack—who has treated Clinton—concluded that she “is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as president of the United States.” But Pinsky’s reading of the Bardack letter disagreed with that asssessment, and he shared his own on the radio show.


Andrea Tantaros sues Fox News, Ailes, Shine for sexual harassment

Andrea TantarosAndrea Tantaros, a Fox News broadcaster, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit Monday against Fox News, former CEO Roger Ailes and other Fox executives, another highly charged legal challenge for the conservative-leaning news network as it seeks to get past a turbulent management change triggered by a similar case.

"Fox News masquerades as defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny," according to her lawsuit, filed in the New York Supreme Court in New York County.

Judge: Glenn Beck must identify sources on Boston Marathon bombing

Glenn Beck in courtA looming First Amendment showdown drew closer Tuesday as a federal judge ordered conservative media host Glenn Beck to identify at least two confidential sources in connection with a defamation lawsuit stemming from Beck's reporting on the Boston Marathon bombing.

The suit was filed by Saudi Arabian student Abdulrahman Alharbi, who was injured at the scene of the deadly bombings. Beck continued to link the Saudi national to the attacks even after U.S. officials said publicly he'd been cleared.


Roger Ailes Used Fox News Budget to Finance ‘Black Room’ Campaigns Against His Enemies

Ailes used Fox funds against enemiesAs Rupert Murdoch seeks to stabilize Fox News in the wake of Roger Ailes’s ouster, a crucial question remains unanswered: How was Ailes able to spend millions of dollars to settle sexual harassment claims without it setting off alarm bells?

According to three highly-placed sources, part of the answer is that there were few checks on Ailes when it came to the Fox News budget. “It was the culture,” one Fox executive said. “You didn’t ask questions, and Roger wouldn’t entertain questions.” One former News Corp executive explained that because Fox made more than $1 billion in annual profits, the funds that were used for settlements amounted to little more than “a rounding error.”


Hannity to WSJ editor: If Clinton wins, 'I will hold a--holes like you accountable'

Sean HannitySean Hannity, apparently, does not take kindly to being called "Fox News' dumbest anchor."

"Fox News' dumbest anchor had a message for y'all," tweeted Bret Stephens, The Wall Street Journal foreign affairs columnist and deputy editorial page editor.

Stephens linked to a Yahoo article summarizing Hannity's comments on his radio show Wednesday in which he pronounced himself "sick and tired" of prominent congressional Republicans like Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell criticizing Trump's pushback against the Muslim parents of a fallen U.S. Army captain.
