Leaked FOX News Internal Memo Refers to Hannity, John Solomon and Rudy Giuliani as “Disinformation”

FOX News REALLY hates their audience. A leaked internal memo obtained by the far left Daily Beast and Law and Crime refers to Sean Hannity, John Solomon and Rudy Giuliani as “disinformation.”

The 162-page memo, entitled “Ukraine, Disinformation, & the Trump Administration,” created by Bryan S. Murphy, slams Rudy Giuliani, investigative journalist John Solomon and top ranked FOX News host Sean Hannity.

The memo by Bryan Murphy also says Rudy Giuliani is “easily fooled” by Ukrainians. Rudy Giuliani has remarkable record of 4,000 convictions as Associate US Attorney and defended President Trump in the attempted coup by Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissman. He is hardly a gullible fool!

It is not clear what Bryan Murphy considers “disinformation” but Rudy Giuliani and John Solomon’s reporting includes Ukrainian documents and testimony from Ukrainian officials.

FOX News better have a good explanation for this. FOX News viewers don’t like being lied to. And they especially don’t like blanket smears against their favorite conservatives based on garbage reporting.

The Daily Beast reported:

An internal Fox News research briefing book obtained by The Daily Beast openly questions Fox News contributor John Solomon’s credibility, accusing him of playing an “indispensable role” in a Ukrainian “disinformation campaign.”

The document also accuses frequent Fox News guest Rudy Giuliani of amplifying disinformation, as part of an effort to oust former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, and blasts Fox News guests Victoria Toensing and Joe diGenova—both ardent Trump boosters—for “spreading disinformation.”

The 162-page document, entitled “Ukraine, Disinformation, & the Trump Administration,” was created by Fox News senior political affairs specialist Bryan S. Murphy, who produces research from what is known as the network’s Brain Room—a newsroom division of researchers who provide information, data, and topic guides for the network’s programming.

The research brief is especially critical of Solomon, a former opinion columnist at The Hill whose opinion pieces about Ukraine made unsubstantiated claims about its government interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Solomon’s pieces for The Hill fueled Giuliani’s efforts to dig up dirt in Ukraine, which eventually helped lead to President Donald Trump’s impeachment. Trump has also frequently cited Solomon’s questionable reporting on Twitter in his own defense.

Tulsi Gabbard Files $50 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against Hillary Clinton

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has filed a $50 million lawsuit against Hillary Clinton. The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. It asserts that Clinton “carelessly and recklessly impugned” Gabbard’s reputation when she said that the candidate is “the favorite of the Russians” on a podcast.

Clinton’s claim dominated the news cycle and made headlines in nearly every news publication.

Gabbard’s complaint says that she intends to hold Clinton and other “political elites” accountable for “distorting the truth in the middle of a critical Presidential election.”

“Tulsi Gabbard is running for President of the United States, a position Clinton has long coveted, but has not been able to attain. In October 2019—whether out of personal animus, political enmity, or fear of real change within a political party Clinton and her allies have long dominated—Clinton lied about her perceived rival Tulsi Gabbard. She did so publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent,” the lawsuit reads. “Tulsi has been harmed by Clinton’s lies—and American democracy has suffered as well. With this action, Tulsi seeks to hold Clinton, and the political elites who enable her, accountable for distorting the truth in the middle of a critical Presidential election.”

The lawsuit lays out Gabbard’s support for Bernie Sanders in 2016, which caused her to step down from her role as the vice chair of the DNC, and says that it has left Clinton with animus towards her.

“Clinton—a cutthroat politician by any account—has never forgotten this perceived slight. And in October 2019, she sought retribution by lying, publicly and loudly, about Tulsi Gabbard. Specifically, in widely disseminated national comments, Clinton falsely stated that Tulsi—an Army National Guard officer and United States Congresswoman who has spent her entire adult life serving this country—is a ‘Russian asset.’ Clinton’s false assertions were made in a deliberate attempt to derail Tulsi’s presidential campaign,” the lawsuit continues.

Gabbard’s suit refers to Clinton’s remarks as a “conspiracy theory” that has “harmed American democracy.”

“Clinton had no basis for making her false assertions about Tulsi—and indeed, there is no factual basis for Clinton’s conspiracy theory. Clinton’s peddling of this theory has harmed Tulsi, has harmed American voters, and has harmed American democracy. Tulsi brings this lawsuit to ensure that the truth prevails and to ensure this country’s political elites are held accountable for intentionally trying to distort the truth in the midst of a critical Presidential election,” it reads.

Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill responded to the news by telling NBC, “that’s ridiculous.”

Merrill, when asked at the time if Clinton meant Gabbard with her Russian asset comments, replied “if the nesting doll fits.”

Mike Flynn Files to Withdraw Guilty Plea in Mueller Probe

Sidney Powell, the attorney for former Trump national security advisor retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, filed a motion Tuesday in federal court seeking to withdraw his guilty plea in the Mueller probe.

Powell alleged the government has broken its agreement with Flynn. Flynn is scheduled for sentencing on January 28. The filing asks for a continuance to February 27 to afford prosecutors time to respond to the motion to withdraw.

Powell alleged in her motion that the government broke its agreement with Flynn. Flynn is scheduled for sentencing on January 28. The filing asks for a continuance to February 27 to afford prosecutors time to respond to the motion to withdraw.

On Tuesday night Sidney Powell joined Sean Hannity to discuss the case and their motion to withdraw General Flynn’s guilty plea.

Sidney Powell discussed their meetings with corrupt government officials including Brandon Van Grack who committed numerous false and fraudulent actions in his efforts to indict General Michael Flynn.

Sean Hannity: Will you be able to withdraw this plea? And I applaud you for doing it.  What they have done to this 33-year veteran is an obnoxious, repulsive unbelievable abuse of power.

Attorney Sidney Powell:  It is and they’ve been abusing their power in the last year in spades, Sean.  The reason it came to this is they tried to get him to lie in the prosecution of the United States versus Rafiekian, his former business partner.  And with new counsel standing by his side of course there was no way I was going to let him do that and he didn’t want to do that.   So we pushed back on that with evidence we presented to them for hours showing them all kinds of different things that supported the fact that he was telling the truth. And instead they doubled-down, came against him, made him a co-conspirator even though they told the judge in the Eastern district that he was not. They never thought he was. It’s just been one atrocity after another. And then the recent sentencing memo is just full of lies and distortions. So they breached the plea agreement that when they tried to withdraw their motion that he was going to be given probation.

Monica Crowley Vindicated by Columbia Univ. after Fake Plagiarism Accusations from CNN, Establishment Media

Treasury Department Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs Monica Crowley has been vindicated by Columbia University after a years-long investigation ultimately concluded she did not plagiarize her thesis, despite allegations by CNN and other establishment media outlets that she did.

Crowley, now the Treasury Department’s top spokeswoman but previously a Fox News contributor, had been under consideration to join the National Security Council (NSC) in the White House at the very beginning of President Donald Trump’s administration under his first national security adviser, retired Gen. Mike Flynn. Then, allegations from CNN and Politico, among other publications, claimed that she plagiarized her 2012 book and her thesis at Columbia, sparking Columbia to launch a review of her thesis that has now concluded.

The review found Crowley did not commit research misconduct, and sources familiar with the investigation added that the university is “not disciplining her in any way.” The university also, the source familiar with the details of the investigation told Breitbart News, found no research misconduct by Crowley. She encourages the public to read her PhD dissertation—which is about U.S.-China relations—because it is a clearly newsworthy topic and added she is proud of her work.

“After CNN and other news outlets falsified my PhD dissertation by omitting nearly 40 footnotes, Columbia University began a process to review the work,” Crowley told Breitbart News on Friday afternoon. “I am delighted that they have concluded that there was no research misconduct, as I have maintained all along. I was also happy to address any inadvertent and honest errors and update the work. I am extremely proud of the dissertation, particularly given the fresh timeliness of its subject—the U.S.-China relationship—and hope that others will read and appreciate it.”

A source familiar with the matter told Breitbart News that the university’s use of the word “plagiarism” in its statement is a purely academic definition, and not the widely accepted use of the term.

Former ’60 Minutes’ reporter Lara Logan files $25M lawsuit against NY Media

Former “60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan has filed a $25 million defamation suit against New York Media and writer Joe Hagan for a story that ran in New York magazine in 2014 titled “Benghazi and the Bombshell.”

The story concerned a report by Logan in 2013 on “60 Minutes” about the 2012 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans were killed in the attack, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
The report was retracted one month after it aired after it was determined that a key interview in the story included false information.

“The headline reference to ‘Bombshell’ was both sexist, insulting and defamatory at the same time,” Logan’s lawsuit states. It refers to the story as the “Hagan Hit Piece.”

The lawsuit contends that the story ended up costing Logan financially and that it portrayed her in a misleading light.

“The word was intended to portray Logan as a dangerous and untouchable and incendiary reporter,” the lawsuit states.

Logan also charges that Hagan’s piece included several false statements. Hagan referred to a “groping” of Logan while the reporter was on assignment in Egypt; Logan said she was the victim of a gang rape.

Logan’s report included an interview with British security contractor Dylan Davies, who provided misleading statements about his actions on the night of the attack on Sept. 11, 2012. Davies’s book, “The Embassy House,” had provided the same false account of his actions during the attack. Simon & Schuster, which is owned by CBS Corp., recalled the book as a result.
