    The news media thread

    The news media no longer simply report the news. Many times they are the news. This thread is the place where we -- not just me -- can post news about the news media. For starters, let's focus on Fox News political commentator and conspiracy theorist Sean Patrick Hannity:

    How conservatives awoke to the dangers of Sean Hannity

    Fox News should fire Sean Hannity, Media Matters president Angelo Carrusone says, calling him 'uniquely destructive'

    Get ready for the backlash and criticism!

    Colin Kaepernick lands the cover of GQ in magazine's first 'Citizens of the Year'
    Mashable, Nov 13 2017 12:25 PM

    When Colin Kaepernick took a knee in protest of police brutality, it sparked a national conversation, one that has blackballed him from the NFL but is still echoing strong, as evidenced by GQ magazine, which has named the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback sone of its first "Citizens of the Year." The magazine invited Kaepernick's friends, mentors and former teammates to shed light on why the purpose of his protest should not be diluted over time. Kaepernick is joined by Gal Gadot, Kevin Durant and Stephen Colbert as "Citizens of the Year."

    I'm happy to see that at least one Fox News host is fair, unbiased and objective and doesn't buy in to his colleagues' conspiracy theories:

    Donald Trump, Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes, Roy Moore, Al Franken, John Lasseter, Bill O'Reilly, Russell Simmons, Jeffrey Tambor, Glenn Thrush, Raul Bocanegra.......every day seems to bring new reports of groping and sexual harassment. But, this being a news media thread, we'll focus on PBS interviewer and CBS morning show co-anchor Charlie Rose. Oops -- make that former PBS interviewer and CBS morning show co-anchor Charlie Rose.

    Charlie Rose fired by CBS, and PBS drops his talk show over sexual harassment allegations

    Oprah is best friends with CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King. Will Oprah join her for a few programs? Stay tuned.

    Will Oprah Winfrey fill in for Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning? Network is reportedly 'begging' her to join.
