NewsNation host Dan Abrams defended the network again Thursday night after more attacks came in after the hiring of former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

Greg Gutfeld spent several minutes mocking NewsNation and Dan Abram’s ratings on Gutfeld, saying “I didn’t know NewsNation existed”.

Dean Cain, the 55-year-old actor best known for playing Clark Kent/Superman in the television series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, was a panelist on Wednesday’s edition of Gutfeld, and also claimed he’d never heard of NewsNation.

“I never heard about it until this right here, and I’m probably not going to hear about it again,” Cain said.

“Maybe you will after tonight, Dean,” Abrams replied. “You see, I found it a little odd that he said that. But I couldn’t figure out why because I’m certain I know it…I’ve definitely seen him somewhere else, somewhere familiar. Somewhere closer to home,” Abrams said as he showed a photo of Cain as Superman.

Abrams then played a portion of an interview with Cain on NewsNation from April 2021 with host Ashleigh Banfield.

“How about that?” Abrams gloated. “Dean Cain, who I’m told pitched himself to be on the network back in 2021, spelling out the very mission of this channel. And yet last night when the pile-on party started on Fox, he was front and center.”

Cain took to Twitter for a rebuttal, saying he had zero recollection of the network but knew Banfield, respected her, but denied “pitching himself” to the network.

CNN has announced plans to create a streaming TV news program based on its popular podcast and newsletter 5 Things on Max.

Hosted by Kate Bolduan, the new program will debut on Monday, April 15th on the streaming service.

“It’s the five essential stories of the morning in five minutes or less,” Bolduan said in a video promoting the launch of the show.

The show was set to be a tentpole of the shuttered CNN+ streaming service when it launched before Warner Bros. Discovery ended the platform mere weeks after its introduction.

A launch of a new program from CNN on the Max platform is latest expansion of the news brand’s digital focus under new CEO Mark Thompson.

In the March 2024 rankings from Podtrac, 5 Things was the 20th most listened-to podcast in the country, falling one spot from its previous month’s ranking.

Leland Vittert: Joseph Goebbels Would Be Proud of Tucker Carlson

“He’s taking the side of terrorists. There’s no other explanation than his unabashed hatred of Jews.”

In an interview for his digital video show, Tucker Carlson interviewed a Palestinian Christian Pastor — Dr. Munther Isaac — who claimed the Israelis, not the Palestinians, are killing members of his faith in Bethlehem. NewsNation host Leland Vittert couldn’t hold in his criticism of his former Fox News colleague after seeing the interaction.

In his takedown of Carlson, Vittert argued that the pastor he sat down with has lived and worked in an area controlled by Palesinians for “almost two decades,” so his insinuation that it is actually Israel doing the damage in his area is preposterous.

“If you wake up in the morning and decide that your Christian faith requires you to support a foreign government blowing up churches and killing Christians, I think you’ve lost the thread,” Carlson said while speaking with the reverend on his Tucker on X program published Tuesday.

Leland Vittert — after juxtaposing Carlson’s opinions with those of The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart — took the opportunity to compare Tucker Carlson to one of the more prominent Nazi figures.

“Joseph Goebbels – the Nazi propaganda chief — would be proud,” said Vittert. “Tucker’s a smart guy. Yet, he’s taking the side of terrorists. There’s no other explanation than his unabashed hatred of Jews. Twenty years ago, we all remember, Stewart exposed Tucker for what he is. That ended Carlson’s tenure on CNN’s Crossfire.

“But there’s a larger lesson to take now six months since Hamas attacked Israel, since the hostages were taken. Hamas has been exposed for what they are. Stewart has been exposed for caving to his liberal viewers. Carlson’s been exposed for siding with terrorists. And now in America – and this is the sad part – hating Jews, calling for their destruction, celebrating their rape? It’s now ok. It’s hard to have peace with people who think that is ok.”

CBS News has announced an upcoming rebrand of its streaming network and will double the amount of live hours in the process.

On Monday, April 22nd, CBS News Streaming Network will become CBS News 24/7. The network will add new programming as it comes under the full control of the division’s President and CEO Wendy McMahon.

“CBS News 24/7 is a decidedly ambitious evolution of our streaming efforts,” said McMahon. “Data backs up our bet on a fresh, timely, and distinctive approach to breaking news and live coverage. Our audiences crave it, and we’re in the best position to deliver it.”

The network will add a show with John Dickerson called The Daily Report, as well as an extended edition of America Decides on the date of the rebranding. CBS News Roundup and CBS News Confirmed will each be added later this year.

Several “hub” cities will help contribute content to the streaming network. Those hubs will include Cleveland, Columbus, Des Moines, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Nashville, New Orleans, Phoenix, Raleigh, St. Louis, San Antonio, and Tampa.

“These news hubs will help us overall respond to stories faster during breaking news simply because we will have people there,” Senior Vice President of Domestic Newsgathering Terri Stewart told CNN’s Oliver Darcy. “Our national movement of community journalism is in response to population shifts across the country, and it’s an extension of what we did at CBS Stations to turn neighborhoods into newsrooms.”
