CNN political analyst John Avlon took a shot at his own network on Wednesday for airing GOP hopeful Donald Trump’s speeches for hours on end instead of practicing journalism and “calling B.S.” on the candidate’s rhetoric. After Trump marked Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s return from vacation by tweeting that she was a “bimbo,” CNN’s […]

(Photo by Win McNamee/Getty Images) Just what constitutes “classified” has long been a subject of controversy, with transcripts being redacted, at times, long after they were already made public.

NBC’s Chuck Todd could serve as a poster boy for the pathetic state of modern television news and opinion. A consistent champion of moronic both-sidesism, Todd is a flagship network personality who occasionally writes pedestrian takes on President Obama that indulge Beltway groupthink and hosts occasional white power segments – qualities that apparently make him […]
