Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, January 17, 2018

Fox News had a story at the height of the presidential election that detailed an alleged sexual relationship between porn actress Stephanie Clifford -- whose stage name is "Stormy Daniels" -- and Donald Trump, but opted not to publish it, four people familiar with the matter told CNN. ... One of the network's reporters, Diana Falzone, had filed a story in October 2016 about an alleged sexual relationship between Clifford and Trump, people familiar with the matter said. Falzone had an on-the-record statement from Clifford's manager at the time, Gina Rodriguez, confirming that her client had engaged in a sexual relationship with Trump, three of these people said, and Falzone had even seen emails about a settlement.

Of course they did.

They're not actually in the news business.

Now, now. FOX just had to do a thorough VISUAL investigation of Ms. Daniels long career.

It's not their fault if it took an inordinate amount of time to check every detail of her .... er ....performance.

Fox News Sat On Story About Trump and Porn Star

Due to the idea that their ancient-grandfather-viewership will all start googling "Stormy Daniels" and start spanking their monkeys.

Faux Snooze sees themselves as an arm of the R party. Of course they sat on the story.

Fair and balanced. Yeah right.

But her emails was top story.

Any pretense that Faux Nooze is not in the bag for the GOP was destroyed years ago.

The word "News" should not be allowed in their name.

Uh huh...suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure. Someone with a very juicy story about a Republican President went to Fox News to reveal it but never went to any other outlets, and then wants to complain that it didn't get published. Uh huh. Yeah, maybe dumb people will believe it but I truly hope that is only a few of you.

At some point, will CNN ever give created to the general population and think that maybe we aren't as dumb as they think we are? I know many Liberals cling to CNN as if everything they say is absolute truth and some Cons will just not believe any word of what they report even if they say we need oxygen to live...but for the majority of the readers who can think on their own, CNN really needs to start catering to them one day like every other news outlet. The Washington Post and Fox News cater mostly to the ones who can think, they just have two opposing demographics they appeal to (even though the opposing sides will always show their ignorance by trying to discredit them about everything they can). CNN just puts out long pieces of crap that when someone actually sits and thinks about what has been written, they realize how stupid CNN actually thinks its readers are. If you are a regular reader of CNN, you have problems and should go to a psychiatrist...or go work for Onion who would love to have you.

As a liberal, I think CNN is crap. It is almost as bad as FOX. Ever since snowflakes like dumbtake and the dotard started crying about CNN they've catered to idiocy and given too much airtime to conservative idiots.

In 2018 you can be fair news or you can be balanced news. You cannot be fair and balanced if one side of the balance is living in a demented fantasy-land.

The problem is all the pages of the "report" were stuck together.

'In Touch' Explosive Interview With Stormy Daniels: Donald Trump Cheated on Melania With Me

In the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands today, Stormy (given name: Stephanie Clifford) confirms in her own words that she had sex with Donald Trump in his Lake Tahoe, NV, hotel suite in 2006 -- a story that was corroborated to In Touch in 2011 by her good friend Randy Spears and supported by her ex-husband Mike Moz. Stormy also took and passed a polygraph test at the time of the interview.

Stormy told In Touch, "[The sex] was textbook generic," while discussing the fling they had less than four months after Donald's wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron. "I actually don't even know why I did it, but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, ‘Please, don't try to pay me.'"

It's really too bad this story has to involve Barron by mentioning his name.

I wish there was a way around that but there really isn't.

This just ugly......

Trump may have to admit to having sex with her just so he can deny her claims that he's a mediocre lover.

I can understand that. Someone paid to have sex for a living being concerned about being paid to.....have sex.

Only a Fox News watching moron would ever say such a thing. Washington Post and Fox News???? Hilarious!

Is it difficult getting through life without a fully functional brain?

It's doubtful someone just came to Fox with this story as much as it was uncovered and multiple sources confirmed it.

Fox had it. That's a fact.

Fox didn't run the story. That's a fact.

Fox News doesn't cater to people who can think. It's why their viewers have been proven to be less knowledgeable of politics and the world than even people who watch no news.

You can lie all you want. But the rest of us just think you are sad.

Her story doesn't ring true. She didn't want to be paid? Put it another way, she's saying she did Donald for free.

Not at all unheard of in the orbit of rich, famous and powerful men.

Nobody doesn't like Sara Lee.

If you want to know what's happening, just check in with Aljazeera News at least once every day. There is even a subset on the page for US and Canada.

CNN and FOX are the worst choices for information. Heck, even MSNBC drops the ball regularly.
