Hannity: ‘Depraved media mob’ has plunged America into an ‘information crisis’

Now that the Electoral College has declared Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election, anyone who doesn’t immediately bow before the Democrats will “face the wrath of the media mob,” Sean Hannity warned Monday. 

The “Hannity” host began his show by highlighting the hypocrisy of the “depraved media mob” who have attacked President Trump and his supporters for questioning election irregularities and making voter fraud allegations —  despite repeatedly crying foul over the results of the 2016 vote.


“They want to lecture all of us, 75 million, about the 2020 election,” Hannity said. “They want you and they want everybody to ignore any and all claims of fraud and abuse. And that would mean they want you to forget about … state laws [that] were absolutely not followed and they were broken in many cases.”

“Unequal treatment, partisan observers, they weren’t

Downtown Dallas skyscraper threatened with foreclosure sale

One of downtown Dallas’ largest skyscrapers is facing foreclosure — the largest foreclosure filing in the Dallas area since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 56-story Renaissance Tower — best known for its double X lighting and decorative towers on top — is owned by a New York investment group. It was the tallest building in Dallas when it opened in 1974, and it’s the second-largest downtown building in terms of office space, behind only the 72-story, 1.8 million-square-foot Bank of America Plaza.

The 1.73 million-square-foot skyscraper has been for sale for several months and is only about 65% leased.

Renaissance Tower is facing foreclosure after defaulting on loans, according to reports from real estate information service Costar.

Since 2006, the Elm Street building has been owned by a partnership headed by New York-based Moinian Group and SMA Equities.

The owners got $118 million in new financing for the

Ingraham: Trump proves the ‘media-medical cartel’ wrong yet again with Operation Warp Speed success

President Trump proved the “media-medical cartel” wrong yet again with the success of Operation Warp Speed, an initiative once dismissed as nothing more than impractical wishful thinking by the administration, Laura Ingraham said Monday.

“When President Trump in May launched Operation Warp Speed, promising to deliver a vaccine to the American people by the end of the year, remember how the media and medical establishment reacted?” the “Ingraham Angle” host asked viewers.


Ingraham cued up a montage of liberal commentators and “medical experts” who chastised the president for setting an “irresponsible” “reckless,” “impossible,” and “preposterous” goal for the development and approval of a safe and effective vaccine by the close of 2020. 

“I love that montage. It’s impossible?” the host mocked.


Monday saw the distribution of the first doses in of

Prime minister Scott Morrison has accused China of breaching World Trade Organization rules over the reported ban on coal from Australia.

The Global Times report triggered a plunge in shares of Australian coalminers on Tuesday morning, with Whitehaven Coal down 8.36% about 11.15am and Yancoal down 10.44%.

Since China’s ambassador announced a consumer boycott in April, Australian producers have been hit by tariffs on goods and disruptions in agricultural and resource exports.

It’s been almost a year since Boeing fired CEO Dennis Muilenburg over his handling of the 737 MAX crisis, but now he’s found a new role in the manufacturing industry — as an investor and adviser at a company building self-driving electric tractors.

California-based Monarch Tractor says Muilenburg, who grew up on a farm in Iowa and served as a Boeing engineer and executive for more than 30 years, will bring his experience in the aerospace world to agricultural technology.

“Monarch is at the perfect intersection of my experience paths,” Muilenburg said in a news release.

The company unveiled its “driver optional” tractor just last week. The electric vehicle is designed to perform pre-programmed tasks in

Disney shares fall more than 2 percent after analyst warns company needs to do more after coronavirus

Disney shares dipped more than 2 percent Monday after a Wall Street analyst cautioned that the company has a lot of work to do before it rebounds from the pandemic and its economic fallout.

Ticker Security Last Change Change %
DIS WALT DISNEY COMPANY 169.30 -6.42 -3.65%

BMO analyst Daniel Salmon, who lowered the rating on Disney stock from “outperform” to “market perform,” said streaming giant Netflix was his “top pick” in the space, despite Disney’s lengthy investor presentation Friday touting its rival Disney+ streaming service, which goosed the company’s stock last week.


In a report titled “Now the Hard Part Begins,” Salmon said Monday that he has decided to “step to the sidelines” even as Disney+, which has garnered over 80 million subscribers since last fall, rolled out

Now, I’m sure you all did what I suggested in my spoiler-free review of “The Wilds” and refrained from blowing through all 10 episodes in two days, right?

Of course you didn’t. So welcome to the review with spoilers.

On the surface, “The Wilds” is about a group of troubled teenage girls who are en route to a female empowerment retreat in Kona, Hawaii, when their plane crashes. They wind up on a deserted tropical island in the middle of nowhere and are forced to join together to survive, despite their disparate backgrounds and personalities.

That is, in fact, about 30 percent of what “The Wilds” is about. But creator Sarah Streicher’s work is more “Euphoria” than “Lost,” and

Group Nine Media Explores Blank-Check Company for Digital-Media Acquisitions

Group Nine Media, owner of websites such as The Dodo and NowThis, is considering using a blank-check company to acquire some of its competitors, according to people familiar with the matter, as the digital-media sector continues to consolidate.

In recent weeks, Group Nine Media has consulted with advisers about the possibility of pursuing deals through a special-purpose acquisition company, also known as a SPAC, the people said. Those blank-check companies raise capital by going public and can put the proceeds into deals.

Group Nine Media is interested in acquisitions that could grow its audience and give it more bargaining power with online advertisers.

The venture-backed company, which formed in 2016 through the merger of several digital-media businesses, has already begun buying competitors. Last year, it purchased PopSugar, a women-focused digital publisher, adding its site and web properties to a portfolio that includes animal-focused The Dodo and NowThis, a news publisher.
