So to make sure no one gets the wrong idea about CNN, they're having O'Reilly on for the first time ever.

Hollywood Reporter: HBO Suffers Setback in Coal Baron's Defamation Lawsuit Over John Oliver Segment:
A federal judge remands the case to state court, rejecting HBO's argument that coal companies were fraudulently joined to escape diversity jurisdiction.

HBO has lost the first round in its fight with Murray Energy over a June 18 broadcast of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, which covered President Donald Trump's generous treatment of the coal industry.

The network wanted a federal court rather than a West Virginia state judge to take up the quarrel over whether the show defamed Robert Murray, Murray Energy and other associated coal companies. HBO argued that because neither Murray, Oliver nor HBO reside in West Virginia, removing the case to federal court is proper. Four subsidiaries named as plaintiffs are based in the state, but the plaintiffs' lawyer argued they aren't real parties in interest.

But in a ruling on Thursday, the federal judge has remanded the case back to a state court where it originated.

"Defendants' primary contention is that the Plaintiff Corporations were not properly joined because the defamatory statements were not of and concerning the corporations, giving the corporations no possibility of asserting a right to relief," writes U.S. District Court Judge John Bailey. "As discussed herein, this Court finds that defamatory statements made about an executive of a business may be sufficient to defame his business where the statement was made about the individual in his professional capacity and reflects negatively on the operation of the business. Therefore, the Plaintiff Corporations may have been defamed by statements made about Mr. Murray, giving them a possibility of success in this action."
The remand order. (The footnote is cute.)

Alex Jones, the controversial conspiracy monger behind the website Infowars, has been in Seattle the last couple of days, roaming downtown, ranting in front of a camera and confronting hecklers.

Jones has been dismissed and denounced as a lunatic fringe element for his spreading of paranoiac conspiracy theories, such as the false claim that the 2012 massacre of 26 children and educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, was a hoax aimed at advancing a gun-control agenda. But since last year, Jones has been granted added prominence by President Donald Trump, who has praised Jones and tweeted links to Infowars articles.

On Friday morning, Jones had a Periscope video feed going as he denounced liberal Seattleites as robots and slaves and said the CIA was threatening to kill Trump. Jones was greeted with profane gestures and comments by some passers-by. He responded by chasing them down and demanding they talk on camera. A bicyclist refused, snapping a photo of Jones and saying he didn’t speak with racists.

Some people showed their support but one encounter ended with a man dumping his coffee on Jones, who tweeted that it was an attack by “vicious leftists.”

Yes, viscous was intentional.

I once had a hound named Vicious. A black and tan. He was a wonderful front-running dog. One day when we were out hunting he got caught up in some oil in the Aliso Canyon oil fields above the kennels. When he came in that afternoon I renamed him Viscous. (It didn't stick.)

White House officials were notably absent from the morning news show lineups on Sunday, as President Trump capped off a turbulent week in his presidency.

"To give you a sense of how reluctant Republicans are to talk about President Trump this week, not one member of the current Republican leadership in Congress agreed to come on the broadcast this morning," Chuck Todd, host of NBC's "Meet the Press," said.
"In fact, even the White House was unable, or perhaps unwilling, to provide a guest, right down to the White House press secretary."

ABC's Martha Raddatz, who filled in for George Stephanopoulos on "This Week," said that the White House had similarly declined to provide an official to appear on the show.

Instead, she said, the White House referred the show to Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University and an ardent Trump ally outside the White House.

"When we asked the White House for an official who could appear on this program today to speak on behalf of the president, they pointed us to our next guest," Raddatz said, introducing Falwell.

Perhaps they are all on their way to get a good spot to view the eclipse? :confused:

No, they are all off playing golf at one of Trump's courses. ;)

Ooopsie.
The Breitbart story of ruthless gang members and migrants’ desperate, life-threatening journey across the Strait of Gibraltar was somewhat at odds with the picture that illustrated it: A man in sunglasses on a Jet Ski, flashing a peace sign while wearing what resembled a soccer uniform.

He appeared to be having a pretty good time despite the details of the recent police crackdown. The story described migrants victimized by a gang that charged people 5,000 euros for the dangerous trek from Morocco to Spain. Gang members were locked up and hundreds of victims were rescued from boats. More than 100 had drowned in sea crossings and one Jet Ski was seized.

But, as Breitbart would embarrassingly learn, the man on the back of the Jet Ski wasn’t a human trafficking victim, or on a desperate sea crossing, or even in Spain at the time. Nor was he a human smuggler.

And he had a very famous face.

For the few viewers in Britain who tuned into Fox News, Tuesday was a dark day. Starting at 4 p.m., the channel was pulled from British airwaves.

The reason? Too few viewers.

On Tuesday, Fox News's parent company announced that it has pulled the channel off the air in Britain, thanks to low ratings. “It averages only a few thousand viewers across the day,” 21st Century Fox said in a statement provided to CNN. Which is not surprising, the company noted, because most of the Fox News shows target a U.S. audience. “We have concluded that it is not in our commercial interest to continue providing Fox News in the U.K.," the statement said.

Dwindling viewership was not the station's only problem. The channel was regularly criticized for breaching Britain's strict television code.

New York Times
The New York Daily News Is Said to Be Nearing Sale

The Daily News, the nearly 100-year-old tabloid owned by the real estate magnate Mortimer B. Zuckerman, is close to announcing an agreement for its sale to Tronc, the publisher of The Los Angeles Times and The Chicago Tribune.

The deal is expected to be announced on Tuesday, according to people briefed on the negotiations.

The deal would be the end of an era for The News, which was long a voice for New York’s working class and for decades set the city’s agenda with its gossip, sports and city coverage.

The News once boasted A-list columnists including Liz Smith, Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill, but it has been worn down by a grinding tabloid war with the Rupert Murdoch-controlled New York Post. And like the rest of the newspaper industry, The News has been battered and bruised by the internet age, when the equivalent of pithy headlines — a staple of The News — come a mile a minute on Twitter.

The deal was struck for $1 and the assumption of pension and operational liabilities, according to The Chicago Tribune, which is owned by Tronc. In 1993, real estate magnate Mort Zuckerman bought it for $36 million. The newspaper's liabilities may exceed $30 million, The New York Times said.

Chicago-based Tronc (TRNC), which also publishes the Los Angeles Times, announced the deal Monday night, and the Daily News posted a story on its website. It was first reported by The New York Times.

Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter is leaving the magazine after 25 years

The celebrity magazine editor and public enemy of President Donald Trump will spend next year vacationing in France.

Graydon Carter is leaving his role as editor-in-chief of Condé Nast's Vanity Fair magazine. He'll officially leave the job after planning the 2018 Hollywood issue of the magazine, which publishes in January.

The move marks the end of an era for the media world, where Carter reigned as one of the industry's most influential and well-known editors during his 25-year tenure at the magazine.
..........
In the 1980's, as an editor at the now-defunct Spy magazine, Carter popularized the term "short-fingered vulgarian" as a way of discussing now-President Donald Trump, who at the time was a popular figure in the tabloids. <SNIP>

Trump, writes Graydon Carter in his latest editor’s letter, “is clearly unfit for any kind of public office, let alone the highest office in the land.”
NATIONAL LAMPOON’S PRESIDENTIAL VACATION
Trump’s time in office, like so much of his life, has been deemed a corrupt, messy shambles. The only lingering question is the extent of the damage he will have done by the time he is forced out.

Good times with Jake Tapper:

http://www.salon.com/2017/09/06/jake-ta ... n-twitter/

Fox News host Sean Hannity encouraged his audience in July to harass journalists, such as CNN’s Jake Tapper, on social media. The cyberbullying campaign was an odd sight to behold at the time, but Hannity’s “fake news” outrage is more sad than dangerous, so nobody thought much of it after the fact.

“That was so weird,” Tapper said of the incident. “I was at home, my wife and kids were away, and I am just reading Twitter before I go to bed and, oh my God, Sean Hannity has apparently told his viewers — not just his Twitter followers, but his viewers — to go onto Twitter to tell me what they think of me.”

More specifically, Hannity said on his Fox News program that his viewers should “tell fake news Jake Tapper exactly what you think of his interview with Anthony Scaramucci. You can do it on Twitter. Or you can message Brian Stelter — Humpty Dumpty, Jeff Zucker’s stenographer about his Russia, Russia, Russia obsession.”

Tapper indicated that the scheme backfired on Hannity, as more Twitter users offered the CNN host praise as opposed to the criticism Hannity had hoped for. “It was like 1,000 to 1,” Tapper said. “It was all these tweets like, ‘Jake Tapper, Sean Hannity wants me to tell you what I think. I think he is a hack and you’re the best.'”

Seth Meyers said that his favorite response was from a Twitter user name Kylie, who called Tapper her Beyoncé


“I’ve been hooked since my first smell of C-4.” Linda Cox, first female Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician, first to lead her own unit, go to war, be awarded a Bronze Star, and hold the highest enlisted rank of chief master sergeant.

Eric Bolling Out At Fox News
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/eri ... 4e4411f212
Fox News has parted ways with host Eric Bolling, the network confirmed Friday, just over a month after an exclusive HuffPost report revealed Bolling sent inappropriate text messages to current and former female colleagues.
:snippity:
HuffPost’s report, which was based on 14 sources, revealed that at least three current and former Fox colleagues said they had received inappropriate text messages from Bolling, including photos of male genitalia.
