NewsNation has slowly but surely been building out its lineup to feature news on a 24/7 basis. On Saturday, June 1st, that goal will be realized.

The network is expanding its weekend programming to include NewsNation Now with Adrienne Bankert on Saturdays and Sundays from 4-7 PM ET. That expansion coincides with recent launches of weekend shows like Morning in America with Hena Doba (7-10 AM ET), NewsNation Live (10 AM-1 PM ET), NewsNation Now with Anna Kooiman (1-4 PM ET), and The Hill Sunday with Chris Stirewalt, which all debuted earlier this year.

It reaffirms our commitment to delivering unbiased news coverage, a mission that resonates deeply with our viewers, fostering their trust in the brand, and strengthening their loyalty to NewsNation.”

In addition to its expanded programming, NewsNation also announced the hiring of three new anchors and correspondents.

Kooiman joined NewsNation in March, hosting NewsNation Now on Saturdays and Sundays. Former Fox News correspondent Laura Ingle has joined the network as senior correspondent. She worked at Fox from 2005-2023. Also, Alicia Nieves will serve as a New York-based correspondent for the upstart network.

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.”

Jen Psaki: ‘I Feel Like It Would Be A Real Mind-Bend’ to Work for Fox News

“It feels like a traumatizing experience (Peter Doocy) has to live through every day.”

It’s no secret that MSNBC host Jen Psaki doesn’t have an affinity for Fox News. And she said as much in a recent interview.

While promoting her new book in a forum hosted by The Ankler, Psaki was asked about her relationship with Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy. The two often clashed during Psaki’s time as the White House Press Secretary for President Joe Biden. However, Psaki said she held no animosity toward the reporter.

“People often ask me, ‘How much did you hate that guy?’ and I’m always like ‘No, I didn’t hate him at all,'” she said. “I feel like it would be a real mind-bend to work for Fox. It feels like a traumatizing experience he has to live through every day. That aside, it’s quite predictable what they were going to ask. If there was a winding roundabout of ‘migrants at the border here to kill all of you,’ you knew they were going to ask about immigration that day.

“So I didn’t see it as necessarily winning the argument with him as much as using it as a forum to provide what our points were, right? When I came in, we followed Trump and an administration that was like, ‘inject bleach, you’re all liars, we hate the media,’ so there was a very low bar for me.”

In 2022, Psaki was famously asked if Doocy was a “stupid son of a bitch” or if he just played one on TV. She responded by saying that he worked for a network “that provides people with questions that, nothing personal to any individual, including Peter Doocy, but might make anyone sound like a stupid son of a bitch.”

Tuesday morning, Doocy appeared on FOX & Friends and touched on the comments, stating — like Psaki — he harbored no ill will in the professional relationship.

“I was raised to be a nice guy,” he stated. “I like to think I’m pretty affable, but it goes to show she really liked to fight in the briefing room. She was there to fight for and go on offense for President Biden. She did her job very well, and it was great doing some briefing room combat with her from time to time.”

On her final day working in the Biden White House, Psaki and Doocy shared a photo together, with the Fox News correspondent wishing Jen Psaki well in her next endeavor.
