Disgraced political journalist Mark Halperin issues new apology amid reported career rehab attempt

Disgraced political journalist Mark Halperin issued a new apology Sunday amid a report he was trying to “rehab” his career over a year after being fired from MSNBC amid sexual misconduct claims.

Reacting to media figure Roland Martin saying Halperin needed to apologize directly to women he “hurt,” the analyst responded: “I am deeply sorry and hope to have a chance to apologize directly to those I treated badly. It is the right and necessary thing to do. I cannot imagine how difficult this experience has been for them. If they decline to hear directly, that must be respected.”

Halperin was fired as MSNBC’s political analyst in October 2017 after several women came forward with accusations of sexual misconduct during his tenure at ABC News in the 1990s and early 2000s. He also parted ways with his Showtime political docuseries “The Circus” and his publisher canned a planned book he was going to write about the 2016 election cycle.

Halperin’s Sunday tweets echoed his sentiments last week as The Daily Beast published a report suggesting MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were trying to help salvage his career. Among their reported attempts: an online-only program with Halperin during the 2018 midterms, which the network ultimately scrapped.

“I am deeply sorry and hope to have a chance to apologize directly to those I treated badly. It is the right and necessary thing to do,” Halperin told The Daily Beast last week in a statement.

Oprah Winfrey urged Gayle King to get massive $11 million payday from CBS

Gayle King has doubled her salary by negotiating a new $11 million-a-year deal with CBS News, Page Six has learned.

Amid a massive overhaul of CBS’ morning show and evening news broadcasts, King will continue to host “CBS This Morning,” as we first reported.

We’re told her new deal is a huge boost from her current $5 million a year.

GAYLE KING TO SIGN MULTIMILLION DOLLAR DEAL TO STAY AT CBS

One network insider said King could be making even more.

As we reported, King — who toyed with leaving the network — went into the negotiations for her new salary looking for “Stephanopoulos money,” a reference to George Stephanopoulos’ recent ABC deal worth between $15 million and $18 million.

King’s BFF Oprah Winfrey this week revealed she had told King to go for broke.

“I said, ‘Get what you want. Get exactly what you want, because now’s the time. And if you don’t get what you want, then make the next right move,’ ” the media mogul told The Hollywood Reporter — saying she had even pushed King’s attorney for her pal.

R. KELLY WAS ‘PLEASED’ WITH GAYLE KING INTERVIEW

King will stay on “This Morning,” while her co-host Norah O’Donnell will leave the show and is poised to take over as anchor of “CBS Evening News,” pushing Jeff Glor out of the gig, as we first reported.

The Post has reported that King — riding high off her big interview with R. Kelly and her inclusion on the Time 100 Most Influential People list — allegedly demanded that O’Donnell be sent somewhere else.

CBS News president Susan Zirinsky denied that King had anything to do with O’Donnell leaving the morning show. King will be introducing her at the Matrix Awards in Manhattan on Monday.

GAYLE KING INTERVIEWS TWO WOMEN DATING R. KELLY

All the remaining lineup changes are set to be announced on air Monday morning, a source confirmed to us.

Meanwhile, O’Donnell said Friday — with King and fellow co-host John Dickerson MIA — “We are reading lots of things with great interest. I just want you to know we will address them on Monday, when Gayle is back here — and John as well.”

Besides King, the new morning lineup is set to include “CBS This Morning: Saturday” co-anchor Anthony Mason and CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil, a source said. Dickerson will move to “60 Minutes” in a political role.

Trump slams censorship on social media, gives shoutout to James Woods: We’re monitoring closely!

President Trump took to Twitter on Friday evening and slammed social media censorship in reaction to Facebook’s recent crackdown of conspiracy theorists, a prominent anti-Semite, and other far-right figures, saying that he’s “monitoring and watching closely.”

On Thursday, Facebook permanently banned Nation of Islam founder Louis Farrakhan, InfoWars host Alex Jones, and rightwing provocateurs Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, while Paul Joseph Watson. InfoWars’ page was also taken down.

COMPAGNO: FACEBOOK BANS ARE A ‘FARCE’, ATTEMPTS TO VIRTUE SIGNAL

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today,” Facebook said in a statement to Fox News.

Trump weighed in on the issue, promoting US citizens’ right to “freedom of speech.”

“I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms,” Trump tweeted. “This is the United States of America – and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH! We are monitoring and watching, closely!!”

The president went on give shoutouts to Trump supporters and Fox Nation hosts Diamond & Silk, who had previously accused Facebook of suppressing their page, Paul Joseph Watson, as well as conservative actor James Woods, who was recently suspended on Twitter over a tweet that violated the platform’s terms.

“It’s getting worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!” Trump exclaimed.

President Trump recently met with Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey in the White House, where they discussed censorship of conservatives on social media.

CNN anchor ‘disheartened’ Trump won’t face consequences over Mueller report

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota says she’s “disheartened” by the prospect that President Trump won’t be held accountable by the Department of Justice or Congress over the findings in the Mueller report.

On Friday, Camerota began the panel discussion by asking how the House Democrats’ desire for the testimony of former White House lawyer Don McGahn would “change anything,” when in her view there’s “ample evidence” in the report that Trump obstructed justice.

“If you look at the Mueller report, what [Special Counsel] Robert Mueller says Don McGahn says is that the president told him to fire Robert Mueller and create a fake paper trail,” her “New Day” co-anchor John Berman said.

“Absolutely,” Camerota responded. “That sounds like obstruction of justice and they won’t do anything about it.”

Camerota then expanded on her grievances.

“I guess my point, John, and I’m sorry if I sound like they’ve broken my spirit,” Camerota said, “I think I am channeling many members of the American public who feel these past two years have been disheartening for people who believe in justice. The reason that I say that is because, you see in the Mueller report ample evidence laid out of obstruction, of what Robert Mueller considered obstruction, but nothing happens. You see violations of the emoluments clause but nothing happens. You see nepotism, but nothing happens.”

“At this point, I think there is a feeling of, I don’t know, exhaustion, I guess,” she continued. “We know this from polls, we know this from voters turning away after the Mueller report that they think that Congress is going to continue this and there’ll be more legalese and there’ll be more nuance. I’m just not sure to what end.”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked a top Democratic lawmaker whether he and his colleagues are considering putting Attorney General Bill Barr into jail if he refuses to comply with subpoenas.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries was quizzed by the veteran host about possible jail time for the attorney general during an interview following Barr’s decision to skip a House hearing on Thursday, prompting House Judiciary chair Jerry Nadler to threaten him with a subpoena.

“If Nadler moves forward and your leadership moves forward with contempt, and they still refuse to comply, what do you do next, how do you get this thing moving?” Blitzer asked.

“Do you impose fines, do you suggest maybe even as some have said jail time for the Attorney General of the United States?”

“Do you impose fines, do you suggest maybe even as some have said jail time for the Attorney General of the United States?”

— Wolf Blitzer

NADLER SLAMS BARR’S DECISION TO SKIP HOUSE HEARING, THREATENS CONTEMPT CITATION: ‘HE IS TERRIFIED’

The New York Democrat said that while he and his colleagues are considering holding Barr in contempt of Congress, no one is seriously thinking about to jailing the top law enforcement official in the country.

“We have to make sure that we do not allow this administration to move us away from our Democratic Republic and to speed towards a dictatorship because we have an individual sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who clearly has done authoritarian tendencies,” he said.

“Jail time is not something that I believe is being seriously contemplated,” Jeffries later added.

Yet while Democrats remain unconvinced of pursuing a strategy of arresting political foes, former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich believes Democrats ought to do exactly that.

“There’s an old precedent in this country under the Constitution of the United States that says that the House and the Senate, each chamber, has an inherent power to compel a witness to testify if that witness just refuses,” he told MSNBC’s Yasmin Vossoughian.

KIMBERLY STRASSEL: AG BARR GETS ATTACKED BECAUSE HIS PROBE ENDANGERS POWERFUL PEOPLE

“That includes arrests and it even includes jail. We forget that because it’s been such a long time since that happened, but it’s there.”

“That includes arrests and it even includes jail. We forget that because it’s been such a long time since that happened, but it’s there.”

— Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich

Vossoughian did little to press Reich about his comments advocating for the arrest of Barr, a move that would send shockwaves through the American political system. In fact, during the same show, she also openly asked a Democrat lawmaker how do “we” respond to Barr.

“You’re bringing up a really good point here. Because one of the, I think, directives here, and the big question here is, do we pursue the Attorney General until he provides testimony for the House?” she asked.

“Or, do we pursue the unredacted Mueller report along with testimony from Bob Mueller? Is that where we put our energy?”

Poynter forced to scrap ‘unreliable news’ list targeting conservative outlets after outcry

Westlake Legal Group poynter-forced-to-scrap-unreliable-news-list-targeting-conservative-outlets-after-outcry Poynter forced to scrap 'unreliable news' list targeting conservative outlets after outcry Liam Quinn fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 003f18ff-1962-56df-a14d-a56180ce6d24

A journalism watchdog has been forced to scrap a list of “unreliable” news sources because, as it turns out, the list wasn’t reliable.

The Poynter Institute, a journalism nonprofit organization, initially released a list of more than 500 “unreliable” news outlets purportedly “built from pre-existing databases compiled by journalists, fact-checkers and researchers around the country.”

WASHINGTON POST CATCHES HEAT AFTER LABELING LOUIS FARRAKHAN A ‘FAR-RIGHT’ LEADER

But a number of prominent conservative-leaning outlets were included in the “unreliable” category, including The Washington Examiner, Washington Free Beacon and other publications that employ scores of journalists covering Congress, elections, the White House and more. The index was created with the help of an employee for the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The walk-back was gradual. First, the authors reversed the inclusion of The Washington Examiner after further review. But the paper’s executive editor, Philip Klein, complained that the group was still urging an advertiser blacklist for those outlets still included — calling the process behind the list opaque and arbitrary.

Poynter’s managing editor, Barbara Allen, posted a mea culpa Thursday as the backlash built.

“On Tuesday, April 30, Poynter posted a list of 515 ‘unreliable’ news websites, built from pre-existing databases compiled by journalists, fact-checkers and researchers around the country. Our aim was to provide a useful tool for readers to gauge the legitimacy of the information they were consuming,” the statement read.

“Soon after we published, we received complaints from those on the list and readers who objected to the inclusion of certain sites, and the exclusion of others. We began an audit to test the accuracy and veracity of the list, and while we feel that many of the sites did have a track record of publishing unreliable information, our review found weaknesses in the methodology.

“We detected inconsistencies between the findings of the original databases that were the sources for the list and our own rendering of the final report.”

NEW YORKER PORTRAYS AG BARR AS A MASSIVE ‘TOADY’ ON TOP OF WHITE HOUSE

It continued: “Therefore, we are removing this unreliable sites list until we are able to provide our audience a more consistent and rigorous set of criteria. The list was intended to be a starting place for readers and journalists to learn more about the veracity of websites that purported to offer news; it was not intended to be definitive or all encompassing.

“We regret that we failed to ensure that the data was rigorous before publication, and apologize for the confusion and agitation caused by its publication. We pledge to continue to hold ourselves to the highest standards.”

The institute continued to face fallout for the blunder, with many noting the irony of how the “unreliable” news outlets list was itself not reliable.

The databases curated to create the list included ones maintained by Annenberg Public Policy Center, Snopes, PolitiFact, and Merrimack University, researcher Barrett Golding wrote in a now-deleted report explaining the botched index.

Golding is also a producer with the Southern Poverty Law Center.

A new report suggests that MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are trying to salvage the career of their former colleague, disgraced political jounalist Mark Halperin.

Halperin was fired as MSNBC’s political analyst in October 2017 after several women came forward with accusations of sexual misconduct during his tenure at ABC News in the 1990s and early 2000s. He also parted ways with his Showtime political docuseries “The Circus” and his publisher canned a planned book he was going to write about the 2016 election cycle.

According to The Daily Beast, the “Morning Joe” co-hosts have been trying to “rehab” a potential comeback for Halperin, who was previously a frequent panelist on the MSNBC morning program.

Sources told The Daily Beast that Scarborough and Brzezinski were attempting to launch an online-only program with Halperin during the 2018 midterms, which was ultimately scrapped by the network. Insiders also say that the top brass at MSNBC was blindsided when Brzezinski dedicated a segment of the April 5 show to an interview Halperin had done with Michael Smerconish on his SiriusXM show, where he continued his apology tour for his mistreatment of former female colleagues and subordinates and included some of his 2020 commentaries.

“I am deeply sorry and hope to have a chance to apologize directly to those I treated badly. It is the right and necessary thing to do,” Halperin told The Daily Beast in a statement. “I cannot imagine how difficult this experience has been for them. I hope this will be a further step in my continued efforts to fully comprehend and make amends for the pain that I have caused.”

In December 2017, two months after Halperin was fired by MSNBC, Brzezinski expressed her frustration on-air that none of Halperin’s accusers were willing to meet with him face-to-face. She then offered an apology amid the backlash.

MSNBC nor Halperin have responded to Fox News’ request for comment.

California high school newspaper to run profile of student porn worker

A Central California school district has decided to allow a high school newspaper to publish a profile of an 18-year-old student who works in the porn industry.

The Lodi Unified School District won’t stop the story from running Friday in the Bear Creek High School paper, the Bruin Voice, the Stockton Record reported Thursday.

The paper’s adviser, English teacher Kathi Duffel, had accused district officials of censorship after they demanded to review and approve the article before publication. In an April 11 letter, district Supt. Cathy Nichols-Washer warned of possible discipline, “up to and including dismissal” if Duffel refused.

Duffel refused, on free speech grounds, and officials in the San Joaquin Valley district, which has about 31,500 students, agreed to let an attorney review the story. Matthew Cate, who represents Duffel and Bailey Kirkeby, the student who wrote the article, concluded that the story didn’t violate education codes.

ARKANSAS HIGH SCHOOL SUSPENDS STUDENT-RUN NEWSPAPER

A lawyer for the district, Paul Gant, wrote to Cate on Wednesday to say the district wouldn’t prevent publication of the story. But Gant also called Duffel insubordinate for refusing to submit the article for review, adding: “There is no question that the article could be lawfully reviewed or censored,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

“Because the district has been denied an opportunity to preview the article, the district does not endorse it,” the district said in a statement. “Because we are charged with the education and care of our community’s children, we will always be diligent in our efforts to provide a safe learning environment for all students, while complying with our obligations under the law.”

The article profiles a student who sells nude videos, models for a porn agency and aspires to be a stripper, the Chronicle reported.

10 STUNNING DISPUTES OVER FREE SPEECH BETWEEN STUDENTS, FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATORS

Duffel had told the paper that the article doesn’t glamorize pornography, but it “will help students think more critically about the choices they do make at this age in their lives.”

The student who was interviewed said she wanted to dispel rumors. “I’m 18, what I’m doing is legal, and I don’t see why everyone is making such a big deal out of it,” Caitlin Fink said.

“I am very proud of the story and how it turned out,” Kirkeby, the Bruin Voice news editor, said.

California law ensures that the First Amendment applies to student journalists. It prohibits prior restraint of school newspaper stories unless they are obscene, libelous or slanderous, or incite unlawful acts or school disruptions.

Duffel’s students “are getting a front-row seat to our government in action,” she told the Chronicle. “What better way to teach the value of the First Amendment than by teaching them firsthand not to have their voices silenced?”

Duffel has relied on the law before to block censorship attempts over her nearly three decades advising the Bruin Voice. For example, in 2013 the principal at the time confiscated 1,700 copies of the newspaper when students exposed inaccuracies in the school safety handbook.

The Hill faces backlash for putting conservative-centric spin on Alabama Dem’s abortion remarks

The Hill is facing backlash for stressing the conservative reaction in its news story about the controversial abortion remarks made by a Democratic lawmaker in Alabama.

Rep. John Rogers of Birmingham expressed his opposition toward a bill approved by the Republican-controlled House that would ban all abortions — with an exemption for women whose pregnancies pose a health risk.

“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later. You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later,” Rogers said.

The Alabama Democrat continued by saying some children who face abortion could be “retarded” and “half-deformed.”

His inflammatory comments sparked outrage on social media, but when The Hill covered the controversy, the focus of its report was on conservative voices’ reactions instead of Rogers’ remarks.

“Conservatives seize on Alabama state Dem’s abortion comments,” the headline read.

The article included several reactions, from figures including Donald Trump Jr. and Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk.

Critics took to Twitter and mocked The Hill for the framing of its Rogers report.

The Hill did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
