MSNBC anchor and NBC News correspondent Stephanie Ruhle recently “liked” a tweet that was not only extremely critical of her colleague Chuck Todd, but also suggested she should replace him as host of the iconic Sunday talk show Meet the Press. First flagged by TV news insider site FTVLive, Twitter account @liberalmommaof4 replied to a post by Daily Show producer Matt Negrin that blasted Todd, saying Todd “needs to go” and that MTP “used to be a reputable show until tool boy showed up.” The “Liberal Momma” account then added Ruhle would do a[n] excellent job” replacing Todd.

Mike Lindell Got So Angry He Pulled MyPillow Ads From A Rightwing Christian Radio Network

One would think Mike Lindell could use the money. The MyPillow salesman-turned-2020 election dead-ender is currently being sued for $1.3 billion by Dominion Voting Systems, who he baselessly accused of playing a part in the voter fraud of which there’s no proof. And yet he keeps biting the hand that could literally feed him. Last week he launched (but did not attend) a sparsely-attended protest against Fox News. Now he’s pulled ads from a rightwing Christian radio network.

The One Thing Mark Hamill Hated About Star Wars

Mark Hamill's name is synonymous with "Star Wars," and the veteran actor has often been vocal about his love for the franchise. In fact, the man who played Luke Skywalker is convinced he would have been a giant fan even if he wasn't involved in the films. "I tell you, if I had not been cast in Star Wars, I would have been there first day, first show," he told Vanity Fair in 2017. Although Hamill has profited from rabid "Star Wars" fandom, he believes many fans might have become too attached to the material. "I don't know when, over the period of time, fandom became so contentious," he told the Daily Beast in 2020.

This Florida Teen And Her Mom Face 16 Years In Prison For Allegedly Rigging Homecoming Queen Contest

Despite the school noting the election's suspicious results regarding hundreds of invalid votes, they forged ahead with the ceremony, anyway — in honor of tradition.

But just four and a half months later, her dream became a nightmare when police arrested the teen and her mother, Laura Carroll, for allegedly rigging the vote.

A Rightwing Radio Network Doesn’t Care That Mike Lindell Pulled MyPillow Ads In A Huff

Mike Lindell has been waging war against an unexpected source: rightwing media. Last week, MyPillow Guy, who’s so ride-or-die for Trump he’s willing to lose his entire fortune over baseless voter fraud claims, fomented a protest against Fox News. Almost no one showed up. Then he failed to pull off a 96-hour Thanksgiving marathon dedicated to conspiracy theories about the 2020 election. Dozens tuned in. Then he pulled ads from a popular rightwing Christian news network who he felt were insufficiently bonkers. Thing is, they don’t care.

bitchy | Windsor attorneys stand by for The Princes & the Press: Sussexit

Tonight BBC 2 will air the second half of Amol Rajan’s documentary The Princes and the Press. For about nine full days Kensington Palace spoke of little else. Prince William has thoroughly informed the press that he never briefed the press, and “high-ranking royal sources” have insisted that William would never launch a deranged smear campaign against his brother and sister-in-law, when William did just that and the great royal story just two weeks ago was how he authorized Jason Knauf to release selected emails and texts from Meghan. It’s all pretty typical from the Kensington Palace clown show. Anyway, it turns out that the BBC renamed the second part of the show to reflect something special:

Mike Lindell held a rally to demand more Fox News coverage – and failed spectacularly

This article originally appeared on AlterNet. Ten months into Joe Biden's presidency, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell continues to insist that Donald Trump was the real winner of the 2020 election and will be moving back into White House — and he is disappointed that right-wing Fox News is not giving more coverage to his bogus election fraud claims. Lindell held a rally on Wednesday morning, November 24 outside Fox News' Manhattan headquarters in the hope of applying some pressure, but according to Daily Beast reporters Zachary Petrizzo and Roger Sollenberger, it was a total flop.
