Reporting on the Mirror – POLITICO

  • A look at who will sit at the "Cool Kids" table at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Politico continues with their excitement over WHCA week, leading up to Saturday's massive gala. In "Playbook," they tell us that tickets this year are impossible to come by – so don't even ask!:

Every year, in the lead up to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, as an A-list guest or two drops out, extra tickets open up for newsrooms to extend to White House officials, congressional aides and party staffers who didn’t make the first round of invites. That’s not happening this year.

Well…that might not be accurate. Looking over some of the outlets drawing power brokers, these might be those with bragging rights. One seat in particular, though, may be up for grabs.

- CBS: Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, FBI Director Chris Wray

- ABC: Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, Deputy communications director Herbie Ziskend

- WASHINGTON POST: Domestic Policy Council director Susan Rice, Homeland security adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall

Given that, as of Monday, Susan Rice left the Biden administration, there could be at least one ticket coming onto the market.

Demo-lition Project – FOX NEWS

  • So, not only left-wing media is excited about Tucker's exit.

Monday night, there was some interest in how Fox would move forward after the abrupt end of Tucker Carlson's tenure at the network. Brian Kilmeade sat in as a replacement, delivering only a brief mention of the issue before forging ahead. There was a significant drop off in viewers for the night, but there was a notable beneficiary.

Newsmax, which has recently been reinstalled on DirectTV channel packages, saw a significant increase Monday for its primetime lineup. Eric Bolling's 8 pm show saw an increase between three to four times his normal average, which carried through to the following shows.

Legalized Press-titution – MSNBC

  • Shoddy reporting, as we never get told what flavor Kerry ordered!

If there was any doubt that former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki would just serve as a cheerleader for the administration in her new role at MSNBC (and seriously, who doubted this?!), she has proven it in spades already in her brief tenure.

After she sat placidly while Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spouted fascist proposals for the government to silence Fox News, Jen had on John Kerry to stroll the mall in D.C. We were granted such gripping insights as his affinity for "Forrest Gump," and that he prefers to order Dove ice cream bars. This is nothing but a dose of cringe on a stick.

Blue-anon – POLITICO

  • Accusing possible judicial bias by resorting to a biased source.

At Politico, Heidi Przybyla has an exclusive report about a possible financial scandal involving Justice Neil Gorsuch. It involves a partnership with which Gorsuch was a minority stakeholder and a property sale to a firm. The lead partner of the firm has appeared before SCOTUS nearly two dozen times, and the supposed scandal is that Gorsuch – though having reported this sale – failed to include the name of the firm that made the purchase. Przybyla spoke with legal ethics advisor Kedric Payne who suggests this lack of revelation is a legal problem.

Except, it is not. There was no violation by Gorsuch, as a number of legal minds weighed in on the matter and noted the errors in the report.

- A disclosure claimed not made by Gorsuch appears on the first page of the disclosure. 

- The name of the buyer was not a requirement.

- The suggestion of a payout influence is watered down by Gorsuch only having a 22% stake in the company making the sale.

- The lawyer appeared before SCOTUS 22 times, with Gorsuch lending only eight favorable opinions

Gilded Reframe – WARNERS DISCOVERY MEDIA

  • Pretty soon, the term "Woke Classics" will become a new movie genre.

Warner Brothers studio is celebrating its 100th anniversary in Hollywood, and to commemorate this landmark, it will be readdressing some of the classic titles from its film vaults. That is, they will not be "honoring" those classic films but bastardizing them.

The studio has selected half a dozen or so well-known titles – such as "Rebel Without A Cause" and "A Star Is Born" – and is having the Warners' DEI officers select filmmakers who will remake those with contemporary sensitivities:

The Warner Bros. Discovery’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion team today unveiled plans for a short film series that reimagines the Studio’s iconic films through a diverse and inclusive lens…adaptions bringing a modern lens to the classic Warner Bros. titles, with representative casting, storytelling and narrative.

Presentation Paradox – THE HILL

  • Well, so far, we do not have to worry about artificial intelligence taking journalism jobs.

Over at The Hill, it appears they have already begun to switch over to some AI-generated content, at least on their social media account.

Let's just say some bugs still need to be worked out.
