    Let's have a show of hands: How many of us are getting weary of hearing a steady stream of accusations of groping and sexual harassment against media people and politicians? Three days ago CNN listed all the media people who have been accused: Matt Lauer, Bill O'Reilly, Roger Ailes, Michael Oreskes, Matt Halperin, Glenn Thrush, Charlie Rose, John Lasseter, Garrison Keillor and many others:

    And every day seems to bring new accusations. Here is the latest:

    As I said yesterday, every day seems to bring new accusations. When will it end?

    CBS News has a story about CBS News. I guess we shouldn't be surprised by that.

    CBS News, Dec 4 2017 3:33 PM

    The CBS Evening News With Jeff Glor will launch Monday night on the CBS Television Network and will also begin streaming on CBSN, CBS News' 24/7 streaming news service, CBS News President David Rhodes announced. The full broadcast will stream on CBSN every weeknight at 10 pm ET. This marks the first time the network's evening broadcast will stream on CBSN in its entirety on a regular basis.

    Bill O'Reilly, Fox News sued for disparaging female accuser
    The Hollywood Reporter, Dec 4 2017

    Fox News and Bill O'Reilly have been hit with a lawsuit by former junior producer Rachel Bernstein over disparaging press statements made in the wake of a New York Times story revealing the former television star had paid $13 million to five women to settle sexual harassment claims. Bernstein is suing for breach of contract and defamation. She's represented by the same attorneys who represented Gretchen Carlson in the retaliation lawsuit against Fox News.

    I'm hoping the "temporarily" will turn out to be permanent.

    PBS temporarily replaces Charlie Rose with Christiane Amanpour
    The Wrap, Dec 5 2017 11:13 AM

    PBS will replace Charlie Rose with Christiane Amanpour on an interim basis after shelving the former’s long-running news show amid an ongoing sexual misconduct scandal. Amanpour will air on New York’s PBS station beginning Monday before rolling out on PBS stations December 11. The program will continue to air on weekdays on CNN International. PBS cut ties with Rose last month after multiple women accused him of unwanted sexual contact. Following the accusations, the veteran broadcaster was also fired from CBS This Morning.

    Sean Hannity worships Donald Trump -- absolutely worships him. Thus, his attack on Barack Obama is not surprising. Hey, Sean, if "everybody in the media" (except you) is against Trump, don't you think there are good reasons?

    Hannity slams Obama’s 'sick' obsession with Trump
    Geobeats, Dec 9 2017 9:04 AM

    FOX News host Sean Hannity on Thursday lashed out at Barack Obama following the former president’s recent remarks in Chicago, which were largely interpreted as being directed towards President Trump. Obama is "obviously sick, pathetic and twisted in this obsession with President Trump. It’s kind of like everybody in the media," Hannity said on his show. "Every single chance Obama gets, whether it’d be here at home, overseas, it doesn’t matter. He’s trashing, trying to undermine the president." Obama on Tuesday warned against staying complacent in the face of rising nativism, citing the rise of Hitler as an example of what can happen if democracy is not defended.

    Media Research Center's NewsBusters website exposes and fights "liberal media bias." Here is the latest example:

    ABC, CBS, NBC ignore the news that the Justice Department is investigating Planned Parenthood in regard to its practices with aborted baby parts
