Here is a disgusting soft-focus feature about Murdoch family members who inherited billions thanks to Fox News and are given credit for spending a minute fraction of that money fighting climate change, which their business enterprise fueled. In fact, all Murdoch family members should be in jail.

Fresh off reporting that Russian oligarchs “close to Vladimir Putin” signed off on loans to Donald T

Fresh off reporting that Russian oligarchs “close to Vladimir Putin” signed off on loans to Donald Trump, MSNBC’s Laurence O’Donnell backed off that bombshell today, saying it “didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process.” Republicans are, as you might expect, having a blast.

Following Brett Kavanaugh’s unhinged performance at Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing over allegations that he’d sexually assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, two of the institutions he claimed played a formative role in his life—and which formerly backed his credentials for the Supreme Court—have suddenly reversed course by either rescinding their support, or demanding Kavanaugh...

To hear President Donald Trump tell it, Republicans are in great shape ahead of November’s midterms, despite poll after poll after poll favoring the Democrats. In fact, he’s predicting a “red wave” that will keep the GOP in power. And now, much to the Republican National Committee’s dismay, the president’s most diehard supporters are starting to believe him.

While most voters expect Democrats...

Family<em></em></a>

Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who has done absolutely nothing to stop the Trump administration from ripping immigrant families apart, has just posted a self-aggrandizing video of himself on Twitter discussing what a great father he is.

“I, I think what happened to me when I became a father is it changed my ambitions,” Ryan said in an early Father’s Day message. “…Once I had kids,...

It’s never too early for a presidential election to descend into stupidity and noise. This year, the stupidity level is already off the charts, thanks to the inescapable Donald. But Trump is ultimately a sideshow: he has zero chance of actually becoming president. The serious race, on the Republican side of things, kicks off in earnest on August 6, with the first Republican presidential...

One would think that honesty and integrity would be the most basic requirements for a nominee to the country’s highest court. By those standards, however, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh wouldn’t even be in the running. Yet, here we are.

Honesty, it seems, isn’t something Republican lawmakers are even remotely interested in when selecting the person to fill a lifetime appointment to the...

We’re less than 24 hours out from President Donald Trump-endorsed candidate Ron DeSantis’ victory in Florida’s Republican gubernatorial primary race, and already DeSantis has managed to stick his foot firmly in mouth and wiggle his toes around for good measure. And where did he choose to do this? Fox News, of course.

Speaking with America’s Newsroom host Sandra Smith, DeSantis, who recently

There is a growing chorus of calls for Florida State Senator Frank Artiles to step down after reports of a racist rant about fellow Republicans went public this week.

While McConnell has highly prioritized court appointments during Trump’s first two...
