Why Is Ex-Fox Producer Abby Grossberg Trying to Encourage Anti-Semitism?

Today I was scanning headlines at Memeorandum, when I spotted this one from Rolling Stone: Producer Tells All: How Tucker Carlson Became the GOP’s MAGA Puppeteer A former producer on Tucker Carlson’s show is revealing just how far the Fox host went to bully top Republicans to come on his show and bend the knee […]

Major (and Also Minor) Media News

Today I was watching CNN (so you don’t have to) when, just after noon, they reported that Tucker Carlson and Fox News have “parted ways.” Then they brought on the despicable Oliver Darcy to engage in unsubstantiated speculation as to why Carlson — the top-rated host in cable news for the past six years — […]

J6 Videos Shatter ‘Insurrection’ Narrative

“We need a complete catalog of all of the feds who were there. Tell us who they were.
