Fox Business’s Neil Cavuto Rips Trump Over Criticism Of Chris Wallace, The Hill

CS Commentary: Cavato has long been one of our least favorites on Fox Business, somewhere near the camp of neo-cons, anti-Trumper’s, and elitists. Here he comes to the defense of the son of Mike Wallace, former CBS 60 Minute’s arch liberal and someone who consistently gives Republicans and conservatives a much harder time than he does Democrats. Fox News may be run by a conservative but its owned by liberal elitists, the Murdoch sons.

Midway, New Trailer, Lionsgate Movies; Also see, ‘Midway’: Film Review, John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter; CS Review: Ignore the critics on this one, they are cynical and liberal and against anything traditional. This film is in the tradition of ‘Pearl Harbor,’ ‘The Patriot’ and other films like those, though it doesn’t quite rise to that level, probably because it seeks to stay too close to the historical facts. This is always difficult for a film that is supposed to entertain, but this one does it extremely well, particularly during the first half. Some of the events of the second half are a little hard to follow and subsequently feel ‘watered down’, but the story still succeeds as entertainment and inspiring history. Plus, it puts you in the seat of WWII fighter and dive bomber pilots in a way few, if any, films have. You will leave the theater thankful for the blood and sacrifice of heroes that bought the freedom we have today with their lives. CS Grade: B+
