Charlie Rose is planning a comeback that centers around rehabilitating men named in the #MeToo reckoning

Talk show host and women’s advocate, Tina Brown, said she was approached by CBS to produce a show that would give a mic to the men who have been slashed by the #MeToo movement.

According to Page Six News, a source said: “Tina said she’d just been e-mailed about co-hosting a new show with Charlie Rose, in which they’d interview Louis C.K., Matt Lauer.”

CBS anchor Charlie Rose is set to host the new show. During a panel discussion at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s Women’s Luncheon, Brown said that she was disgusted by the show idea and declined the offer.

“These guys are already planning their comebacks!” Brown said.

It’s speculated that several high profile men who have lost their jobs due to sexual abuse claims might be planning to share their side of events.

“I’m nowhere near ready to see Matt Lauer, Louis C.K., Charlie Rose, Mario Batali, or any of the host of other powerful men brought down by the #MeToo movement return to public life,” Kristen Bellstorm, a writer for Fortune said. “Yet in the past week or so, there’s been an ominous drip-drip-drip of stories reporting on how these men are faring  in ‘exile’ and speculating about how they might stage their comebacks.”

Rose did not respond to a request for comment.

On Saturday, the Fresno Bee dived into a lingering question: How does Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pay for all the lawsuits he is filing against journalists, satirists, and political critics?

"Nunes, R-Tulare, has filed lawsuits against Twitter, anonymous social media users known as Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, a Republican political strategist, media companies, journalists, progressive watchdog groups, a political research firm that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and a retired farmer in Nunes’ own district," noted the Bee.

These lawsuits were mainly filed in Virginia — a state with very loose laws against so-called "SLAPP suits," or meritless lawsuits intended to drown people in legal expenses in retaliation for expressing political opinions. Nunes was assisted in these suits by Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney, and yet except for the suit against the retired farmer, there is no clear record in Nunes' FEC reports of how he paid for the suits.

McConnell bluntly defends working with Trump to undermine impeachment: ‘We’re on the same side’

Published

Speaking in Kentucky on Friday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blithely blew off concerns about coordinating with Donald Trump's White House on how to handle the president's defense in the expected impeachment trial.

One day after admitting on Fox News that he was working hand-in-hand with the White House on impeachment tactics, McConnell was very blunt about his motivations when asked about his admission.

In a clip shared by MSNBC, the Senate leader was pressed about his plans.

"You told Sean Hannity last night you were coordinating with the White House when it comes to impeachment. Why is that appropriate?" McConnell was asked.
