Candy Crowley to Leave CNN After 27 Years

CandyCrowley304After 27 years at CNN, veteran political correspondent and “State of the Union” host, Candy Crowley, is leaving the network.

“[I]t is with mixed emotions, that I wanted to let you know that Candy has let us know that she has made the decision to move on, so she can embark on the next chapter of her already prolific career,” CNN president Jeff Zucker wrote in a staff memo first obtained by TVNewser. “As difficult as it is for us to imagine CNN without Candy, we know that she comes to this decision thoughtfully, and she has our full support.”

Crowley’s career at CNN began in 1987 as a political correspondent, where she covered a handful of successful and unsuccessful presidential campaigns including those of Pat Buchanan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan and Mitt Romney, among others.  In 2012, she became the first woman to moderate a presidential debate. Read more

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 09.47.42Meghan McCain, co-host of Pivot’s “TakePart Live” and daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), admitted that her father wishes she could be more like Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of President Bill Clinton and expected 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, in an interview with POLITICO “On Media” reporter Hadas Gold.

Referring to a 2012 interview with Playboy magazine, Meghan McCain told Gold:

“He was not pleased at all…That’s actually one of the few fights we’ve ever gotten in about things I’ve done publicly. He was just so embarrassed. And he was like, ‘Why can’t you be like Chelsea Clinton?’…He didn’t really say that but that’s what he’s thinking in his mind. So I just try to curb it a little more. I can’t really regret things you just have to move on and live your life.”

The two went on to discuss McCain’s repaired relationship with Rep. Michele Bachmann, critical comments of Sarah Palin, and respect for her father. For the full story, click on over to POLITICO.

Pew Looks at 2014 Newspaper Coverage of Potential 2016 Presidential Candidates

PRC-Logo-2The Pew Research Center, which today announced that Michael Dimock will take over tomorrow as president, released a study on media coverage of potential candidates in the 2016 presidential election. Using LexisNexis, Pew analyzed mentions of potential presidential campaigns in 15 of the top U.S. newspapers from Jan. 1 – Sept. 27, 2014.

Tied for the most mentions of a possible 2016 run for president is Hillary Clinton and NJ Gov. Chris Christie with 82 stories while 2012 Republican candidate Mitt Romney was mentioned 74 times. With just more than a quarter of the coverage received by Clinton, the highest other Democrat is Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren with 22 mentions, followed by VP Joe Biden with 18.

The report goes on to compare Republican and Democrat mentions thus far this year and potential presidential candidate coverage two years prior to the 2008 and 2012 elections. For the full look at Pew’s ‘News in the Numbers,’ click here.

Hillary Clinton Asks Frank Underwood for Bill Clinton Birthday Wishes

Again, Hillary Clinton misses the mark of actually being funny in a recent video posted to the Clinton Foundation’s YouTube channel of a “prank call” the former Secretary of State receives from “House of Cards’ ” Frank Underwood. In it, Spacey imitates former President Bill Clinton, and in closing, the former First Lady encourages Underwood to sign Bill’s online and public 68th birthday card.

WATCH, and comment if you actually laughed.

Script Shines Through as Hillary Clinton Joins Stephen Colbert on ‘The Colbert Report’

Hillary Clinton appeared on “The Colbert Report” last night with host Stephen Colbert for what proved to be one of the worst media appearances related to her blitz for Hard Choices.

The show’s host started off by highlighting instances from the book in which the former Secretary of State “name drops” celebrities and world leaders. After, the likely 2016 presidential hopeful “surprises” Colbert and joins him onstage. In a far too scripted back and forth, the two recall memories with Tom Hanks, George Clooney, and Oprah.

Highlights from 7.27.14 Sunday Shows

Hillary Clinton on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” answering what Vladimir Putin is ‘like as a man’ : “Well, he’s very tough. He’s a very arrogant person to deal with, which I think is a combination of this vision of Russia and some fundamental insecurity because when you are dealing with him, he often acts as though he couldn’t care less, he’s not interested, even talking with him about getting Russia into the World Trade Organization which is something the Obama administration was determined to do because we want to have a rules based order in so far as possible.”

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on President Putin on CBS’s “Face the Nation” : “I think that Putin is living in his own world.  He has made up an awful lot of lies in terms of who is responsible for the fact that the Soviet Union disintegrated. He actually called that the greatest disaster of the 2oth century. Hard to believe, when there were two world wars that killed millions of people; among them, Russians. So that’s the first lie. And then he has, in fact, propagandized all that to his own country, and then into central and Eastern Europe. I think what he wants to do is to reestablish himself as the identification of Russian nationalism. And then also to do everything he can to kind of reestablish something akin to the Soviet Union, obviously not that, but a grouping of countries around Russia that are completely subservient to him and to Moscow. And until he can get that, he’s going to work to destabilize Eastern Europe.”

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on NBC’s “Meet the Press” : If you had 2,500 rockets falling on your cities, if you had terror tunnels dug underneath your border to reach your kindergarten, if you had attacks by land, by sea, and by air, of course  take action. You take action, you take military action aplenty. I have no doubt that you would. So does Israel.” Read more
