Donald Trump Defends Relief Bill’s $25 Million Outlay For Kennedy Center
Some Fox News hosts have criticized one item in the massive $2 trillion coronavirus relief package: $25 million for the Kennedy Center.

“It was $35 million but we took off 10, but I am a fan of that,” he said. “The Kennedy Center has suffered greatly because no one can go there. It is essentially closed. And they do need some funding. I said, ‘Look, that was a Democrat request. That was not my request.’ And I said, you have got to give them something. It is something that they wanted.

Fox News’ Dana Perino’s Tips for Working From Home: Keep a Schedule, Step Away When You Can
Working from home amid the coronavirus outbreak doesn’t mean Fox News’ Dana Perino is any less busy than she would be at the network’s headquarters: She’s still hosting her 2 p.m. Et show, “The Daily Briefing,” and appearing on the 5 p.m. Et show, “The Five,” in addition to reading kids’ books on Facebook Live and YouTube.

“I think it’s really important to try to keep as consistent a schedule, as if you were still going into the office,” she said when asked what advice she’d give anyone else working from home right now. “But the other thing that I do recommend stepping away from the news for a few moments, if you can.”

Perino, a former press secretary for President George W. Bush, started broadcasting from her family’s weekend home in New Jersey Monday but began posting her “Storytime” segment last week. It’s just her,

TV News Staffers Are Working From Home as Coronavirus Spreads, But the Shows Must Go on
Watching TV news, it’s obvious that coronavirus has led to small but significant changes on set. What’s less obvious is what’s happening behind the scenes: Outlets have sent large swaths of their employees home to work remotely amid the spread of the coronavirus.

NBC hosts Al Roker and Craig Melvin didn’t appear on “Today” Monday after a staffer tested positive for coronavirus, but the rest of the cast stayed behind to carry on and explain their absence. CBS News’ Seth Doane spoke on the network’s programming Monday about his own diagnosis. He later tweeted about why he’s doing on-air appearances instead of just laying low: “I thought it was important to be open about testing positive for #COVIDー19 – This is a serious virus with possibly deadly consequences.. and even if you only have mild symptoms (like me) it’s essential we take quarantine seriously

Donald Trump’s “Misconduct Is Overwhelming”, Impeachment Report Says; Reads Like “Basement Blogger”, Proclaims White House
One day before new hearings on the impeachment of Donald Trump are set to start, the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday released its report on the ongoing process. The former Celebrity Apprentice host was unsurprisingly slammed and hit back.

“The President placed his own personal and political interests above the national interests of the United States, sought to undermine the integrity of the U.S. presidential election process, and endangered U.S. national security,” the 300-page Trump-Ukraine Impeachment Inquiry Report bluntly states.

The White House hit back fairly quickly today.

“At the end of a one-sided sham process, Chairman Schiff and the Democrats utterly failed to produce any evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said from London, where Trump is attending the Nato summit. “This report reflects nothing more than their frustrations,” the sharp elbowed Grisham adds in an attack on California Rep.

Facebook Shares Fall As Most States Join Antitrust Probe; Mark Zuckerberg Goes On The Stump

  • Deadline
New York Attorney General Letitia James said 46 other attorneys general have joined her antitrust investigation into Facebook, adding more legal firepower to a potential lawsuit.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg: “People Should Decide What Is Credible, Not Tech Companies”

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg isn’t backing away from the company’s decision to accept political ads without fact-checking the spots, arguing that “people should decide what is credible, not tech companies.”

Zuckerberg has been a frequent presence lately in Washington, meeting with activists, lawmakers and even President Donald Trump as the company comes under fire for a host of issues, perhaps first and foremost how the company will handle political content and disinformation in advance of the 2020 presidential election.

In a speech at Georgetown University, Zuckerberg argued that while the company has a role in policing violent content, blatant hoaxes and other material, he takes a broader view of what should be allowed when it comes to political speech. The company has come under fire on the left for allowing the proliferation of content that many have considered hate speech or even blatantly false, while it’s also facing

Krist Novoselic Defends Nickelback from Trump: ‘Leave Grunge Bands Alone!’

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic defended the honor of Nickelback and grunge bands everywhere on Twitter Thursday.

The musician’s tweet was prompted by a surreal series of events in which President Donald Trump tweeted out a meme about Joe Biden featuring the Nickelback song “Photograph,” and either the band, or their label Warner Bros., filed a copyright complaint to have the clip taken down. The Internet, unsurprisingly, had a field day with the takedown as opinions on Nickelback effectively split down party lines.

Fox News Makes Pitch for Late-Night Crowds

  • Variety
Greg Gutfeld says he doesn’t have much time to watch Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel or Stephen Colbert. But he spends his Saturday-night hour on Fox News Channel offering stuff that’s similar to what they do: quips, jokes, even sketches.

“People say they are interested in a different perspective in terms of popular culture, coming from somewhere that isn’t center left,” says Gutfeld, who hosts the freewheeling “Greg Gutfeld Show” Saturday nights on Fox News Channel. “We provide a perspective that isn’t part of the shared assumptions of late-night TV.”

This Saturday, Fox News will help him make his point, airing a promo that tilts against TV’s late-night crowd by showing that Gutfeld’s program draws a bigger overall audience than most of them. “Seth Meyers, James Corden, Samantha Bee, Trevor Noah – the joke’s on you!” an announcer intones.

Fox News Channel Keeps Counting on ‘The Five’

  • Variety
Fox News Channel is known best for primetime hosts like Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, but its top executive is also enthusiastic about “The Five,” a panel show that airs each day at 5 p.m.

“No matter where it went, it was the best decision I ever made as a programming executive,” says Suzanne Scott, Fox News’ chief executive, in an interview. These days, Dana Perino, Greg Gutfeld, Juan Williams and Jesse Watters host the show with a guest sitting in each day.

Originally conceived in 2011 as a program that would give more air time to a bevy of Fox News contributors who did not have their own roost on the schedule, “The Five” has delivered for Fox News in times both easy and difficult. It usually airs each afternoon, but for a period of a few months in 2017, it moved to primetime as Fox News dealt with the one-two

Fox News Channel Signs Ex-DNC Chair Donna Brazile As Contributor

Fox News Channel has signed its former punching bag, aka Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile as a contributor.

In Monday’s announcement, the cable news network noted the veteran Dem strategist will offer political analysis across both Fnc and Fox Business Network’s daytime and primetime programming. Announcement was made just hours before her first scheduled appearance on Monday’s The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino.

“I know I’m going to get criticized from my friends in the progressive movement for being on Fox News,” Brazile said, accurately, in announcement.

“My response is that, if we’ve learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can’t have a country where we don’t talk to those who disagree with our political views. There’s an audience on Fox News that doesn’t hear enough from Democrats. We have to engage that audience and show Americans of
