Well maybe you should listen then.

“I'm a journalist,” he said. “But I'm an advocacy journalist or an opinion journalist

Hannity is honest about who he is and what he does, unlike sanctimonious actors-playing-journalists like Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow.

Funniest thing trending on Twitter today. David Hogg says he is going to announce another boycott soon.

Guesses include:
All the colleges that denied him admission
The KFC Spork
The maker of clear backpacks
Girls
Starbucks for taking the NRA off the top of the list this week
Puberty

Anderson Cooper is chill, in my book. A little to the left but not annoying so and tends to lean more towards news than opinion. Don Lemon, on the other hand, complete tool.

I don't get Fox. Even if I did, I would not watch drivel like that. I have a Netflix account and Couchtuner to watch good TV.

I don´t get Fox either, only CNN, which I don´t watch, and probably wouldn´t watch it if I did. CBS has live 24/7 streaming news and that´s my favorite news channel because there are no pundits or talking heads, just news.

Cooper is an interesting man with an interesting background. If you have not read it, I would suggest the wikipedia article about him.

I like his Heroes show once a year on CNN. Like I said, he is not overly partisan and bearable. Other than that, I am not too interested in his life. I save that kind of research for people who interest me (personally or professionally) or if trying to prove a point (like earlier with Hannity).

I do have a question though. If Cooper reported on the gay wedding controversy without coming out of the closet, would it have been unethical?

I don't have a subscription to the Washington Post, so am pulling these quotes from a different site but apparently, McCabe is in for a world of hurt.

Quote:
The Justice Department’s inspector general has been focused for months on why Andrew McCabe, as the No. 2 official at the FBI, appeared not to act for about three weeks on a request to examine a batch of Hillary Clinton-related emails found in the latter stages of the 2016 election campaign, according to people familiar with the matter.

The inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, has been asking witnesses why FBI leadership seemed unwilling to move forward on the examination of emails found on the laptop of former congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) until late October — about three weeks after first being alerted to the issue, according to these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive matter.

A key question of the internal investigation is whether McCabe or anyone else at the FBI wanted to avoid taking action on the laptop findings until after the Nov. 8 election, these people said. It is unclear whether the inspector general has reached any conclusions on that point.
Quote:
At the same time, the FBI was facing a new set of questions, this time about McCabe’s role in a stalled probe into the Clinton Foundation. Some within the FBI felt McCabe had repeatedly moved to hamstring that probe and were suspicious of his motives for doing so, according to people familiar with the matter.
If only he had been smart enough to recuse himself when his wife decided run for public office. So, he throws Comey under the bus who, in turn throws Lynch under the bus and Lynch tosses Comey under another bus and McCabe under yet another. A whole fleet of Greyhounds on this one. McCabe is gonna do time is my guess. Be kind of funny if after all this, the ones doing the most prison time are the ones in law enforcement who tried to rig the election.

I am not positive, may not be a clear cut call.

How about if a Jew was in the closet in Hitler's Germany and reported on the war.

Well, I imagine he would have worked for the government seeing as it was a fascist state and the press was run by the state and they would have outed him. Doesn't work.

It worked pretty well during the Spanish Inquisition.

Dershowitz is busting Hannity's chops for not previously revealing his relationship with Michael Cohen.

A Brief History of Michael Cohen's Criminal Ties

Good article. Lots of information on Cohen's and Trump's background with Russians and his real estate buildings
