A New York Times reporter took issue with Hillary Clinton's continual assertion that the media was too hard on her during the 2016 election, saying that it wasn't the media's job to get her elected.
CNN's Brian Stelter took a look at Clinton's recent book tour and her repeated complaints about the media on Sunday's "Reliable Sources."
"I don't think the press did their job in this election," Clinton said in an interview with Vox.
Amy Chozick covered Clinton for the New York Times during the campaign and said that the media needed to do some soul searching, but it wasn't their job to elect her.
"The way she presents it in the book is a little bit like it was our job to get Hillary Clinton elected," Chozick said. "Now, our job is to inform voters about their choices and how those choices would impact their lives."
Clinton complains in the book that her private email server scandal was covered unfairly by the press, and she particularly blasts the handling of the probe by then-FBI Director James Comey.
During the election and afterward, President Donald Trump has gone after the media too, often criticizing them through social media and calling unfavorable coverage "fake news."
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has made a big splash since getting his own show on the network.
FNC is crossing their fingers that Republican radio personality Laura Ingraham can do the same thing and get them back to the top of the ratings.
Last night, Tucker took on an illegal alien who believes he has certain rights.
A motorist claims he was caught up a domestic argument which got out of hand - and became a case of 'attempted murder ' after a woman pushed a man into the path of his car. YouTuber Gan42 said they were driving through Houston Eldridge in Texas, when a woman suddenly pushed a man, he presumes to be her husband, into the middle of the road.

Comedians Kroll and and John Mulaney (Saturday Night Live) will voice the central characters of Nick and Andrew, respectively, in the edgy surreal comedy, whose voice cast also includes Maya Rudolph (Maya & Marty), Jason Mantzoukas (The League), Jordan Peele (Key and Peele), Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Jenny Slate (Girls) and Jessi Klein (Inside Amy Schumer).
“There are few things that keep me up at night….Nick Kroll’s adventures in puberty is one of them, so we greenlit this series with very few questions asked,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix VP of original content.
Kroll and Goldberg co-created Big Mouth with screenwriter-directors Mark Levin & Jennifer Flackett (Little Manhattan). All four executive produce the Netflix production.
“Andrew and I have been best friends since 1st grade, so this show is over 30 years in the making. I can’t wait to tell all the stories that make up the glorious nightmare of puberty,” said Kroll.
Among the duo’s real-life stories — a lip-sync performance of Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” at Camp Wildwood in 1992 which they call legendary and infamous to this day.
Kroll is the creator and star of Comedy Central’s Kroll Show. He also co-starred on FX’s The League alongside recurring player Mantzoukas. Kroll will next be seen on the big screen in Jeff Nichols’ feature, Loving, which premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, New Line’s The House, as well as three animated films, Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party, Illumination’s Sing and Dreamworks’ Captain Underpants. Kroll recently completed his nationally sold out tour and an off-Broadway run of Oh, Hello, which he co-created, co-wrote and co-starred in alongside Mulaney.
Writer-producer Goldberg has animated series experience — he began his career at Fox’s animated comedy Family Guy where he rose to co-executive producer. His feature script, The Wedding for CBS Films, appeared on the 2011 Black List.
Wan't Having It
The man uses the firework like a gun and tries to hit his wife with the sparks that fly out, much to his amusement and the group of people with him.
A 68-year-old woman was held hostage by an unknown assailant who appears to be of Turkish origin for at least 4 hours at a bus stop in Krefeld, Germany.
Eventually police were able to subdue the violent migrant who still refuses to tell police exactly which Middle Eastern nation he is arrived from.
An ID obtained by police did allude that the man was once at least a citizen of Turkey and a attendee to local mosques in Germany.
This is the bizarre moment a red-faced woman was forced to return a 12-inch dildo after an audacious sex shop theft. CCTV footage captured the shamed shoplifter being asked to put the giant rabbit vibrator back on its shelf before leaving the store. The video begins by showing two women shopping in Sexotica in the city of Cali, Colombia. One of them approaches the saleswoman and distracts her by asking about some lingerie while her accomplice wanders over to the vibrator section, selects a dildo and pops it in her bag. The saleswoman suddenly realises what has happened, seeing the large dildo in the partially opened pouch.
We are doing the running with the bulls in Spain, perhaps you should stick the running instead of acting as if you're Matador who has absolutely no training whatsoever.
Watch this man get knocked unconscious after a bull sense in flying!
We have no word on the man's health after he was taken to the hospital.
No holds barred roasting ceremony.
Two photos shared by different people show a man in Seattle riding the RapidRide D Line wearing a Nazi armband. A later photo shows the man knocked out on a sidewalk from a punch.
It is believed that the photos may be this man in this video, which was shared shortly after the above photos. The video was shared by Sam McCready, who has no other videos associated with the account.
In the video, the man wearing the swastika is talking about welfare to another man with a blurred out face before he is cold-cocked. A voice off-camera says, “Night night.”
As everyone prepares for Sunday night's Emmy Awards on CBS, the celebrities walked the red carpet. As they walk into the venue, it's their chance to show off a fabulous new look or make waves with a wild soundbite.
And as the festivities were just kicking off, “Insecure's” Issa Rae delivered on the latter, in spades.
When asked who she was rooting for regarding the awards, Rae dropped an absolute stunner:
“I'm rooting for everybody black!”
A strange light formation was spotted in the sky above Salt Lake City on Saturday night. Videos taken around 8pm of the sky above the Utah city show a mysterious scattering of lights in flying through the sky. And while the lights can most likely be explained as a satellite breaking up in orbit - the unusual sight prompted questions of shooting stars and UFOs.
While protests staged during Saturday afternoon and early evening were peaceful, reports began emerging later in the evening that some demonstrators were engaging in violent behavior.
Hundreds of protesters marched Saturday night through the Delmar Loop of the St. Louis suburb of University City. After three hours, organizers asked protesters to disband and reconvene Sunday afternoon.
Protest participants were united in their reason for demonstrating: To use Smith's death as a catalyst to raise awareness of the tenuous relationship between law enforcement and communities of color.
"I don't think racism is going to change in America until people get uncomfortable," protest organizer Kayla Reed of the St. Louis Action Council told The Associated Press.
Susanna Prins, a white woman who carried a sign that read "White silence is violence," chimed in, "Not saying or doing anything makes you complicit in the brutalization of our friends and neighbors."
Earlier in the evening, more than a thousand peaceful protesters carrying "Black Lives Matter" signs and "No Justice, No Profits" briefly blocked a major intersection before dispersing.
"The message is simple: stop killing us," Cori Bush, a social worker and activist who helped lead marchers early Saturday evening, told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Black folks say, stop killing us."
But after a majority of the protesters left, a small group remained. They vandalized businesses and threw rocks, water bottles and garbage can lids at police officers, The Associated Press reported. A chair was thrown through the window of a Starbucks, and one protester was also spotted hitting a police SUV with a hammer, according to the Post-Dispatch.
Now if you want something for me, watch this Russian to break the window of this woman who is absolutely refusing to cooperate with but acting incredibly hysterical as he attempts to smash the window.
As Colin Kaepernick continues to go unemployed for boycotting the national anthem as a means of drawing attention to racial injustices, people both inside and outside of the league are dealing with their own forms of backlash for exercising their right to criticize the system. And that includes kids in elementary school.
A teacher from Farmington Hills, Michigan has been placed on leave for allegedly assaulting a 6th-grade student who refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. The teacher is now under investigation.
The student, Stone Chaney, had just started his first week at East Middle School when the incident occurred, which Stone described to local outlet ClickOnDetroit.
"The teacher consultant comes up behind me and snatches me out of my chair violently," Stone said. "I was so confused. I didn't know what was going on."
The alleged assault happened Sept. 7, and Stone said another teacher yelled at him for sitting down during the pledge the very next day. But Stone has a very short list of things he pledges allegiance to. "I don't stand because I don't pledge to a flag," he said. "I pledge to God and family."
In a statement, the superintendent of Farmington Public Schools seemed to back Stone's choice.
"The District fully supports the right of each student to participate or not in the daily Pledge," the statement said. "The teacher allegedly involved in the incident has been placed on administrative leave. At this time, the District cannot speculate about the outcome of the pending investigation."
As for Stone's future at East Middle School, the boy is understandably looking to make a change. "I don't feel safe going to that school anymore because I don't know what they're going to do next," he said.
A daredevil cameraman has captured an extremely close-up video of a Great White Shark . The spectacular footage, which was filmed yesterday, reportedly shows a four-metre Great White in South Africa.

Oh, NOES! British police are accused of “desecrating a mosque” which they raided without taking off their shoes.
Numerous mosque goers order to evacuate after the illegal mosque was discovered. These have been popping up to all of Britain and have been spreading terrorist propaganda groups such as Isis.
Currently the British government is doing all they can to shut down these illegal mosques in an attempt to silence the terrorist activities spread through Muslim migration into the West.
A mother’s unconditional love is the greatest gift that any child can receive and goes a long way in ensuring their well-being. Children are known to be happier and healthier when parents nurture them with utmost love and affection. While raising a normal, healthy child today has its fair share of challenges, imagine how it is to raise a differently abled child.
This video is a classic example of good parenting where the mother doesn’t differentiate between her differently abled child and the others. The child was born without arms and legs, but the mother does not prevent the child from enjoying himself in the manner that other kids do. She is allowing the child to discover himself and not instilling any feelings of helplessness.
The smile on the child’s face as he climbs every step of the slide and when he finally manages to slide down in pure joy sums it all. This shows us how with sheer will and determination, nothing in this world is impossible.
This video is indeed a testament that there is nothing greater than the compassion of a mother. The smile of the child is so heartwarming and his struggle is soul-stirring. After learning about this story, I’m sure that we will all complain a lot less.
The transgender issue is the most sensitive in Britain today, sparking passionate debate among equal-rights campaigners. But now that passion has erupted into the sort of outright violence normally associated with football hooligans. Two factions – the Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists (or so-called TERFs) and their bitter enemies Trans Activists – clashed in an unseemly bust-up that ended with a 60-year-old woman being bundled to the ground and punched in the face. The incident was caught on video and is now being investigated by the police. Mother-of-two Maria MacLachlan, who describes herself as a ‘gender critical feminist’, was attacked at Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park at about 7pm on Wednesday.
