Dan Abrams: NewsNation A Threat to ‘Outrage Media’

After the hiring of Chris Cuomo to NewsNation, Dan Abrams is once again defending the channel, this time from what he calls “outrage” media who are threatened by the upstart network.

On his podcast, The Chris Cuomo Project, the newest member of the NewsNation team said the January 6th Committee hasn’t presented enough evidence to prove former President Donald Trump had committed a crime.

“One liberal commentator said ‘Cuomo was willing to lay low for all of a few months — now he’s back with a podcast and interviews in which he defends trump and demands America move on from January 6,” Abrams said. “Another said ‘Chris Cuomo was a liberal who got rejected by his fellow liberals. So now he’s moving to the right to try to find a new constituency.’ It couldn’t be that he believes it — and I will say that on this subject, I largely agree with him.”

Abrams then said Cuomo had also been slammed by conservative media members for his belief that Trump hadn’t been proven guilty, showing a clip from Jesse Watters of Fox News.

“So what does Chris Cuomo believe?”, Watters questioned. “We don’t know. Seems like he changes his opinion depending on who is paying him.”

Abrams then pointed out grievances aired by Newsmax host John Bachman after Cuomo’s hiring. Bachman shared skepticism that Cuomo is “neither a Republican or Democrat” and pointed out that Abrams himself worked at MSNBC.

“You got me. I worked at MSNBC… up until 2008,” Abrams said. “You know who else worked at MSNBC back in the day? Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham. And did you know that Cuomo worked at Fox News at one point? What does this all prove? It’s just a dumb thing to say.”

The defense of the network’s position of neutrality by Abrams comes at the same time the Nexstar-owned group is reportedly in discussions with conservative pundit Bill O’Reilly to become a contributor to the cable outlet.

Comedian Bill Maher made just his second-ever appearance on Fox News Monday during an interview with Greg Gutfeld. It turned out to be a record-breaking arrival.

During Monday’s edition of Gutfeld! averaged 2.9 million viewers as the longtime comedian and news host conversed with the Fox News star about a bevy of topics. Included in that 2.9 million figure was 342,000 viewers in the coveted adults 25-54 demographic.

The discussion between the two topped both the late-night cable news ratings, as well as the late-night network shows hosted by Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy Fallon. The Fox News program, however, benefits from airing from 10-11 PM ET while the other shows do not start until 11 or 11:35 PM ET.

Since launching in 2021, Gutfeld! has continuously battled for the top spot in the late-night TV ratings, and has frequently bested the network competitors.

During a previous appearance on the Club Random podcast, Bill Maher congratulated Greg Gutfeld on his success, stating while he didn’t “have to love” the heights the Fox News host has reached, he does “have to respect” the success.

Tucker Carlson Network CEO Denies Report Company Has Deal with Russian State TV

“The story of a Russian show is totally false.”

A report from Russia that was then picked up by Newsweek claiming that former Fox News host Tucker Carlson had struck a deal to bring his Tucker Carlson Network programming to state TV in Russia has been refuted.

Former video shows produced by Carlson had been airing on Russia 24, with voiceovers redubbed into Russian, with a news outlet claiming the program was airing there as part of a business deal between Russian state television and Carlson’s new digital media entity.

Newsweek then subsequently picked up the story, publishing an article reiterating the claims that Carlson had struck a deal with Russian authorities.

However, Neil Patel, the co-founder of the Daily Caller and current CEO of Tucker Carlson Network, strongly denied those claims.

“The Tucker Carlson Network has not done any deals with state media in any country,” Patel wrote. “Whoever is currently pretending to be the old Newsweek brand would know that if they had checked with us before printing like news companies are supposed to do.”

Newsweek later published further comments from Tucker Carlson Network Head of Programming and Production Operations Dean Thompson, who also denied the story.

“The story of a Russian show is totally false,” he said. “Any use of our content by that channel is without legal permission.”
