Trump TV? Mysterious casting call for new network seeking ‘upscale and intelligent’ conservatives

Published

Donald Trump denies that he’s looking into founding his on TV news network, but a leaked casting notice obtained by Fox News hints that a “Trump TV”-like network is one someone’s radar.

The casting notice says that it’s looking to hire people for an “up-and-coming conservative media network currently in development,” although it doesn’t specify who is doing the developing.

More specifically, the casting notice says that it wants on-air hosts and reporters who are “knowledgeable about conservative viewpoints, current events and the presidential election,” and who also look “upscale and intelligent” and are “outspoken and energetic.” The audition also specifies that the network’s content will be streamed over the web, which suggests it might not be a traditional cable news network.

One issue for the Trump campaign this election cycle has been the low quality of its surrogates — after all, very few people think that Katrina Pierson or Corey Lewandowski are “knowledgeable about current events.” In other words, it sounds like the network is looking to cast people of a higher caliber than the ones who currently represent the Trump campaign on national TV.

Auditions for the network are being held in New York on Nov. 7, the day before the presidential election.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
