Half of LA Times Staff May
Quit if Koch Brothers Buy it

PJ Media, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/1/2013 10:41:27 AM

Of course, if the group of high-powered liberal billionaires and Democratic party fundraisers are successful in buying the Times, that’s just peachy with them. They are all totally oblivious to the riotous irony of opposing the purchase of a media outlet because they fear ideological contamination, while embracing a rival group’s effort to buy the paper who will ideologically contaminate the coverage anyway — except it happens to be an ideology with which they agree. That’s how to save “honest” news coverage in LA. HuffPo: As Tribune Co. emerges from a four-year bankruptcy, the predominantly Democratic

Comments:
And that would be a bad thing because?? If they did they could hire reporters like those on Fox or Breitbart. That would sure make those leftists screech and wail.

Only half? By quitting, it would save the Koch brothers the trouble of firing them!

Good. And they can also dump the rest of the hack ´journalists´ on staff and replace them with real reporters.

I doubt that they would actually go through with their threats in light of the paucity of jobs in this Obama economy. But even if they did, this is a great argument in favor of the Kochs going through with the deal.

...and yet these are the same ´reporters´ who claim to be ´objective´ and ´non-partisan´ and oh-so tolerant of opinions that diverge from theirs.

Whitewashed hypocrites of the Fourth Estate. They claim their jobs are oh-so important and sophisticated - yet don´t have to periodically test for certification or competency, like airline pilots, engineers, lawyers, or actuaries do.

Any chimp sitting behind a terminal can be a ´reporter´.

Heck - Chelsea Clinton interviewing the Geico Gekko is considered network-level ´journalism´. That should tell you exactly what qualifications ´journalists´ need (a papa who was President.)

Let ´em all go sell used cars.

The LA Times used to be a truly great newspaper. Terrific investigative reporting. Easily the best sportswriters in the business. And a well balanced political and editorial group.

Now it´s non-stop DNC propaganda and agenda-driven (pro-gay, pro-illegal immigration) articles in every section of the paper. Really disgusting and shameful fall from its days of former greatness.

They´ll need to dump more than 50% of the staff to start their way back just to mediocre.

To those who plan on leaving all that I can say is Don´t let the door hit you in the butt on your way out, and please flush before leaving the bathroom stall for the last time!!!

Obama struggles to contain
fallout from Ukraine crisis
Washington Examiner, by Brian Hughes    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/21/2014 12:16:09 PM     Post Reply
Russia´s swift annexation of Crimea created ripple effects that extend well beyond Ukraine, fundamentally redefining the relationship between Washington and Moscow. Vladimir Putin´s land grab undermined President Obama´s so-called "reset" with Russia, leaving the White House appearing weak and incapable of deterring the Kremlin´s aggression. While Obama slowly expanded sanctions against individuals and laid the groundwork for hitting key sectors of Russia’s economy, critics questioned if he could land a counter punch that would draw blood. Analysts said Obama is now operating in a completely different diplomatic world and will have to rethink his foreign policy assumptions. “This is a game-changer for the

While everyone is focused on the Ukraine and eastern Europe, Vladimir Putin has also been projecting Russian power into our own backyard: Away from the conflict in Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin is quietly seeking a foothold in Latin America, military officials warn. To the alarm of lawmakers and Pentagon officials, Putin has begun sending navy ships and long-range bombers to the region for the first time in years. Russia’s defense minister says the country is planning bases in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua, and just last week, Putin’s national security team met to discuss increasing military ties in the region.

The decision of Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane to drop the investigation and potential prosecution of Philadelphia Democrats who were recorded accepting cash, money orders, or jewelry certainly seems suspicious. According to news reports, investigators collected over 400 hours of audio and video of five Democrats, including four state lawmakers, before Kane, also a Democrat, secretly killed the investigation last fall. When confronted with this troubling story by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Kane cited racism and mismanagement in the investigation, but the detailed descriptions of the recordings certainly seem to indicate that the payments were made.

Vice President Joe Biden in a speech Friday joked that he should have nominated President Obama for “sainthood” after seeing his patience during the rocky rollout of the health law´s new insurance exchanges. In an address to the National Association of Community Health Centers policy summit in Washington, D.C., Biden told the health care workers in attendance that “we didn´t help you much at the front end,” acknowledging the problems that plagued the healthcare.gov launch. “My boss, my friend Barack Obama, is an incredibly patient man,” Biden continued. “I suggested, after going through the first couple weeks, I would nominate him for

A Muslim family from Long Island slapped the owners of the Empire State Building Tuesday with a $5 million lawsuit that claims that Islamic prayer is not being accommodated on the observation deck of the Emprie State Building. This is the template for imposing Islam on the public square (or a top ten target of jihadists). This public prayer on the observation deck of the Emprie State Building was a provocation. It had nothing to do with piety or religiosity. It is political and supremacist. Were they facing Mecca or Ground Zero? You don’t see this in Muslim countries. They can make

Obama-appointed judge: border
fence may have a ´disparate

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/21/2014 8:43:58 AM     Post Reply
Liberals can rationalize away anything in the name of discrimination against minorities. Even national sovereignty. The Corruption Chronicles blog of Judicial Watch reports: A Homeland Security initiative to put fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border could discriminate against minorities, according to an Obama-appointed federal judge who’s ruled that the congressionally-approved project may have a “disparate impact on lower-income minority communities.” This of course means that protecting the porous—and increasingly violent—southern border is politically incorrect. At least that’s what the public college professor at the center of the case is working to prove and this month she got help from a sympathetic federal judge.

North Carolina Democrat Verla Insko got some chuckles from some of her colleagues in the state Senate during legislative hearings on Obamacare after she asked about the percentage of prostate cancer patients that were women. "What percent of the prostate cancer patients are women?" Insko, a state representative from Chapel Hill, asked Duke University research scholar Chris Conover during the hearing in Raleigh on Tuesday. "I have no idea," Conover replied, as people in the room began laughing. "I would guess zero," he added. "But I don´t know that for sure." Insko´s question was captured by an America Rising tracker

President Obama said in a Norwuz greeting released Wednesday that the Iranian regime’s selection of a new president last year was in fact an election in which “the Iranian people” were allowed to choose a new leader. “Last year, you—the Iranian people—made your voice heard when you elected Dr. Hassan Rouhani as your new president.” Obama said Rouhani “was elected with your strong support.” Shortly after the regime’s selection of Rouhani, the Wall Street Journal’s Sohrab Ahmari described the process for subverting democratic choice in Iranian elections: Iran’s presidential campaign season kicked off last month when an unelected body of 12 Islamic jurists

Former White House advisor and current MSNBC contributor David Axelrod appeared on Now with Alex Wagner on Thursday where he insisted that the Affordable Care Act will be a boon for Democratic incumbents running for reelection in November. He added that he believes too many incumbent Democrats have accepted the “myth” that the ACA is unpopular, and he advocated that they “embrace the very good elements” of the ACA when they run for reelection. Alex Wagner and Axelrod both agreed that Democrats have done a poor job of attacking Republicans for advocating what they said was the health care delivery system

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

(Video) The Obama ladies are in the house — the house of China, that is. First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics. No reporters accompanied the family on the trip. “The nature of her visit is really quite

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf. During the five-plus years

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."

College basketball can wait. Did you know that March is actually National Nutrition Month? Today, First Lady Michelle Obama urged Americans via her "Let´s Move!" initiative to challenge their family members to eat one new fruit or vegetable per week in March to faithfully observe the occasion. "March is National Nutrition Month and you can celebrate by challenging your family to try a new fruit or vegetable each week," First Lady Michelle Obama said in an e-mail to supporters today. Never mind that there were less than two "each weeks" left in National Nutrition Month when the e-mail challenge was

Michelle Obama arrived in China on Thursday for a weeklong visit that will steer clear of politics and instead focusing on education and community. [Snip] On Friday, she is to spend the day with Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, something which diplomats hope will build bridges between the two countries. ´I think this is a very good opportunity to improve the China-U.S. relations, as the first lady can represent the soft side of diplomacy,´ said Wang Dong, a political scientist at Peking University´s School of International Studies. ´Michelle Obama herself has been accomplished in areas such as

Warm temperatures, colorful wildflowers. What´s not to like, about early signs of spring? Climate scientists at NASA say these early signs could be tied to global warming, and the consequences are troubling. 9NEWS talked to NASA scientist Dr. Compton Tucker at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. He said that on average, the last frost of the year is happening about five days earlier than it did just five decades ago. Tucker said his conclusions are drawn from a fleet of Earth-observing satellites that have been monitoring our planet for more than 40 years. That satellite data combined with

First lady Michelle Obama will not take questions from reporters or give interviews during her tour of China that begins today, and members of the press corps who usually follows the first family everywhere have been banned from the trip. The resulting picture is one of an expensive, taxpayer-funded vacation for Mrs. Obama, her two daughters, and her mother – and not the official good-will journey the White House has promised. White House press officials won´t comment to MailOnline about whether the ban on media interviews applies equally to American journalists and Chinese reporters. ´How does this comport with the

President Barack Obama on Wednesday said he could use some company with the rest of the First Family out of the country. "Michelle and the girls are on their way to China, it´s very lonely at home," Obama told an audience ahead of a screening of the movie "Cesar Chavez" at the White House. "So nothing better than to see an inspiring film, and I´m really looking forward to seeing the chronicled life of one of my heroes and one of the people who inspired me to get into the work I got into."
