WATCH: Eric Bolling is Back: Criticizes Media Matters for Blasting his New Sinclair TV Show as ‘Worst of Right-Wing Media’

Eric Bolling, America This Week (Screengrab)
Before America This Week host Eric Bolling aired his interview with President Donald Trump, he took a few moments to respond to a recent story from Media Matters — titled “Eric Bolling’s new show for Sinclair Broadcast Group brings the worst of right-wing media to local news” — which blasted his show that now airs on Sinclair.
“In a sign of Sinclair’s increasing willingness to adopt the Fox News model of poisoning viewers against any other news sources, much of the first hour-long program was devoted to decrying so-called media bias against President Donald Trump,” Media Matters wrote.

Oprah, Who Gave Obama the Nod in 2008, to Interview Beto O’Rourke in Times Square Ahead of His 2020 Decision

Oprah Winfrey might give former Rep. Beto O’Rourke a familiar boost.

The entrepreneur and media personality is set to interview the potential 2020 candidate one-on-one next month live as part of her “Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square.”
Winfrey’s support once kickstarted the presidential ambitions of another junior Democratic legislator: Barack Obama.
O’Rourke, a popular Texas Democrat, narrowly lost a hard-fought campaign for Senate in November to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who retained his seat representing the red state in the upper chamber.
The 46-year-old has performed well in early polls about potential Democratic candidates prompting comparisons to the former president, despite saying during his campaign he would not run in 2020.
The talk-show host once burnished Oba...

“Morning Joe” Hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski Finally Do the Wicked Deed of Marrying Each Other After Divorcing Their Previous Partners – At Least They Didn’t Marry Again in a Church but Both of Them Ought to be Ashamed of Themselves for Committing Adultery on Live TV Every Morning Before the American Public and for Having Representative Elijah Cummings Officiate Their Wedding at the National Archives in D.C.

Rep. Elijah Cummings pronounces them husband and wife.Courtesy of Miller Hawkins.
The Morning Joe co-hosts made it official during an intimate Saturday ceremony at the National Archives, in front of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, officiated by Rep. Elijah Cummings.

At 5:40 p.m. on Saturday evening, Mika Brzezinski hurried out of a black S.U.V. a few dozen yards from the back entrance of the National Archives. An umbrella was popped open for her, and she walked into the historic library in order to get married to her longtime Morning Joe colleague and partner, Joe Scarborough, in front of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights.
Part of the popularity of the Scarzinski relationship derives from the fact that, despite their pro...

WATCH: CBS Is Criticized for Making Inappropriate Joke About Redskins Quarterback Alex Smith’s Broken Leg

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith is lost for the season after ​breaking his leg this past Sunday. It was a highly serious incident, and figures to have an adverse impact on his career moving forward. However, in an effort to crack wise and tie it in to Thanksgiving, a segment on CBS made a pretty classless joke about said injury via a disembodied voiceover. It’s even worse if you listen to it:

Damn.. CBS lowkey disrespected Alex Smith.. #CHIvsDET pic.twitter.com/5oBo0FixHH

Jokes are great and sometimes you’ll take a risk to get a laugh, but the dude just suffered a ​gruesome injury that could be career-ending. There is nothing funny about that fact.

CBS just jokingly said Alex Smith broke his drumstick last week trying ...

John McCaa in the WFAA newsroom.
For decades, North Texans have known where to find John McCaa at 5, 6 and 10 p.m. But that won’t be the case after next spring. The veteran WFAA-TV (Channel 8) news anchor has announced plans to retire.
“After more than 42 years in television news, I intend to retire next March,” McCaa told the station Monday. The longtime anchor first announced his decision on Facebook.
“Am I ready? In some ways yes, in some ways no. Management has graciously asked me to stay longer, and I have politely declined. It is not easy to step away from a business in which you have worked for two-thirds of your life and loved even longer,” said McCaa, who first joined the station in 1984.
He first worked out of WFAA’s Fort Worth bureau, but has been in the Dallas newsroom since 1...
