Are Journalists Overreacting to Donald Trump?
Vanity Fair*, by James Warren

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/6/2017 11:33:10 AM

As with Lady Gaga Sunday night, Kellyanne Conway gives us a million reasons. Conway, a senior advisor to President Trump, was on Fox News with Howard Kurtz earlier in the day, proceeding apace with delegitimizing the press. She spoke of "selective coverage" and "information underload," meaning the press was nefariously keeping the good stuff about the Trump White House from the American public. A million reasons why the press is unfair to her boss. So, what do experienced hands from conservative and libertarian newsrooms think about the coverage so far? "I think the media are in grave danger here of

Their marching orders are to find any and all reasons to make Trump look bad. That´s their brand of ´journalism.´

The Left which of course includes “the media” knows what they have done to everybody not in their protected elite cult. They are right to fear now that the tables of power are turned. If those not in the cult were to be as cutthroat as they have been and continue to be there would be bloody’ell to pay. They are projecting how they would react and not waiting for retribution. In Trump and the swell of support for him they see that we may be ready to remove the white gloves and go bare knuckles against their brass knuckles. That’s too close to a fair fight for their comfort.

Most journalists are Democrats, hate Trump, are certainly overreacting, and are dishonest in their reporting that is designed to create as much controversy as possible.

Howard Kurtz is a complete jerk. I watched this interview Kurtz did everything but stand on his head to confuse Kelly Ann. She is sooooo far out of Kurtz´s league. He should go back to CNN he would fit right in This is my last time watching his stupid show.

The Federal Trial Begins

Texas Monthly Magazine, by H. Drew Blackburn    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/25/2017 3:55:43     Post Reply
On Thursday morning, the first official day of John Wiley Price’s corruption trial, the people in the moderately full courtroom expected some fireworks—at the very least a couple of firecrackers or a sparkler, something fitting for one of the most divisive politicians in Dallas County history. Price, a 66-year-old who has served as the Dallas County Commissioner for District 3 since 1985 (the longest serving politician in Dallas in a single role), is inflammatory and flamboyant, recognizable in his corn rows, ill-fitting suits, and custom-painted bow ties. And if that’s not enough, he’s often spotted driving down the street in

Why Did Greenland’s Vikings Vanish?

On the grassy slope of a fjord near the southernmost tip of Greenland stand the ruins of a church built by Viking settlers more than a century before Columbus sailed to the Americas. The thick granite-block walls remain intact, as do the 20-foot-high gables. The wooden roof, rafters and doors collapsed and rotted away long ago. Now sheep come and go at will, munching wild thyme where devout Norse Christian converts once knelt in prayer. The Vikings called this fjord Hvalsey, which means “Whale Island” in Old Norse. It was here that Sigrid Bjornsdottir wed Thorstein Olafsson on Sunday, September

Gary Cartwright, a colorful Texas journalist who began his career on the talent-laden sports staff of the Fort Worth Press in the 1950s, died Wednesday morning after suffering a recent fall at his Austin home. He was 82. Cartwright went on to become an award-winning sportswriter for the Dallas Times Herald and The Dallas Morning News. He left The News in 1967 to advance a career that included writing the 1968 novel The Hundred Yard War, inspired by his coverage of the Dallas Cowboys. But his most prominent years as a journalist came during his time with Texas Monthly. He worked for

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Thursday moved closer to approving President Donald Trump´s pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency even as nearly 800 former officials urged the chamber to reject the nominee, who sued the agency more than a dozen times as attorney general of oil-producing Oklahoma. The 773 former officials signed a letter sent to the Senate that said Pruitt´s record and public statements suggest he does not agree with the underlying principles of U.S. environmental laws. Pruitt has also cast doubts on the science of climate change. "Mr. Pruitt has shown no interest in enforcing those laws, a critically

   

 

  


 
How to FedEx a Giant Panda
Smithsonian Magazine, by Jacob Brogan    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/16/2017 5:07:34     Post Reply
Flying a panda from the United States to China is simpler than you might expect: It just takes a lot of experienced, hard-working people to pull it off. The Smithsonian National Zoo’s Nicole MacCorkle knows that first-hand, having helped transport Tai Shan to China in 2010. She and her charge were making that trip in accordance with the Chinese government’s panda loan agreement, which holds that all members of the species born abroad will travel to China around their fourth birthdays. On February 21, the 3-and-a-half-year-old, female panda Bao Bao will depart the Zoo under similar circumstances, this time in

Trump´s F-35 Calls Came With
a Surprise: Rival CEO Was Listening
Bloomberg News, by Anthony Capaccio    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/16/2017 2:13:24     Post Reply
Days before taking office, President-elect Donald Trump made two surprise calls to the Air Force general managing the Pentagon’s largest weapons program, the Lockheed Martin Corp. F-35 jet. Listening in on one of those calls was Dennis Muilenburg -- the CEO of Lockheed’s chief rival, Boeing Co. Trump, who has repeatedly criticized the $379 billion F-35 program as “out of control,” made the highly unusual calls to Lieutenant General Chris Bogdan on Jan. 9 and Jan. 17. Muilenburg, whose company makes a fighter jet Trump has suggested might be an alternative to the F-35, was in the president-elect’s New York office

No to Puzder

Andrew Puzder was from the start an odd choice to head Donald Trump’s Labor Department. The chief of CKE Restaurants, the parent company of fast-food chains such as Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, Puzder has long been one of corporate America’s most high-profile advocates of Gang of Eight-style “comprehensive immigration reform” — or, put another way, one of the most high-profile advocates of precisely the approach to immigration policy that Donald Trump opposed during his campaign. Of late, immigration-related labor policy has largely consisted of signing off on the measures American businesses use to undercut domestic workers — for example, of

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz introduced a one-page bill Tuesday to abolish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the darling of Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. The Repeal CFPB Act, which Cruz and four other Republican senators sponsored, would repeal the Consumer Protection Act of 2010, the part of the Dodd-Frank bill that created the CFPB and granted it sweeping authority over banks, money lenders and financial institutions. “Don’t let the name fool you, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau does little to protect consumers,” Cruz said in a statement. “During the Obama administration, the CFPB grew in power and magnitude

Elizabeth Warren’s Secrets and Lies

Last Friday, President Trump signed an executive order listing “Core Principles” for reforming financial regulation, including the Democrats’ 2010 Dodd-Frank Act and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau it created. Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren could hardly object to some of the principles — for example, “prevent taxpayer-funded bailouts” or “empower Americans to make independent financial decisions and informed choices in the marketplace” — because she herself had previously expressed similar sentiments. So instead, she quickly accused Republicans of “rushing to unleash the big banks” and “gut the consumer agency that has forced banks to give $12 billion back to customers they

   

 



 
Reflections on Anna Nicole Smith,
Ten Years After Her Death

It’s hard to care about the tenth anniversary of Anna Nicole Smith’s death with everything else going on in 2017. Looking back at the year she died, 2007, the drug overdose of the former stripper turned icon turned addict didn’t make Time’s list of the top ten news stories, despite her celebrity. Around that time, George W. Bush was president and was busy sending more troops to Iraq. The housing bubble had burst, but “predatory lending” had yet to become part of the lexicon. Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone and was two tough years away from his own passing;

First it was Deflategate and now Tom Brady is enmeshed in Jerseygate — and a Texas official has the state’s storied Rangers hot on the trail.? The football jersey Tom Brady wore while leading his New England Patriots to a historic Super Bowl win was still missing on Monday — and perhaps stolen right out of his locker, the quarterback said. Brady told reporters he last saw his game-used threads in the New England dressing room Sunday night in Houston, following the Patriots’ stunning 34-28 overtime win. “The jersey, I put it in my bag and I came out and it wasn’t there

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, had an unfortunate turn of phrase the other day. She said it’s the mission of the press to “control exactly what people think.” My suspicion is that this was less a Freudian slip than a simple slip-up. Brzezinski was referring to her fear that President Trump may be trying to control the way people think by discrediting the media — whom he calls “enemies of the American people” — and she lost her rhetorical footing, stumbling into saying that mind control is “our job.” But the misstatement resonated with a lot of people,

She urged her party to ´keep fighting and keep the faith,´ while adding, ´I´ll be there right with you every step of the way.´ Clinton´s message was released in conjunction with the Democrats´ meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, where they´ll decide new Democratic National Committee leadership tomorrow. But Clinton´s frequent forays back into the limelight suggest she could still write another political chapter post-2016.

A transgender advocate struggled to answer simple questions about the science of gender identity in a discussion about former President Obama’s transgender bathroom decree Thursday on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “Let’s move from the politics to the science,” Carlson said to Zac Petkanas, Democratic National Committee senior advisor, launching into a series of questions about the implications of allowing people to determine their sex. “There’s no biological anchor to sex anymore. It’s all determined by the individual,” he said. “So my obvious question for you is, how do I know if a person’s male or female? Is there some absolute standard people

The White House blocked a number of news outlets from covering spokesman Sean Spicer’s question-and-answer session on Friday afternoon. Spicer decided to hold an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the traditional on-camera briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room. Among the outlets not permitted to cover the gaggle were news organizations President Trump has singled out for criticism, including CNN. The New York Times, The Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, BBC, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Daily News were among the other news organizations not permitted to attend.

WASHINGTON — Democrats have invited immigrants and foreigners to President Donald Trump´s first address to Congress in an effort to put a face on those who could be hurt by the Republican´s policies. Lawmakers typically get one guest ticket apiece for presidential addresses, as they will for Tuesday´s prime-time speech, and the invites often go to family, friends or someone from back home. To send a message to Trump, Democrats have invited the Iraqi-American doctor who discovered elevated levels of lead in the blood of many children living in Flint, Michigan; a Pakistani-born doctor who delivers critical care to patients

President Donald Trump has announced that he will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Dinner this year in a shocking break with tradition. ´I will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Association dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday afternoon. His announcement comes amid growing tensions between his administration and media outlets. Trump attended the dinner in 2011 with his wife Melania where he was repeatedly mocked by then-president Barack Obama. He skipped the dinner in 2016 during the presidential campaign where Obama again took aim at the then-candidate, saying: ´I´m a little

Pope Francis continues to argue for two interrelated points that, while seemingly humane, compromise Western nations and expose their citizens to danger. He reiterated his first point earlier this month when he said, “I appeal not to create walls but to build bridges.” Francis has made this appeal frequently, both figuratively (when imploring Western nations not to close their doors against more incoming Muslim migrants), and literally—including by characterizing Donald Trump’s proposal to build a U.S.-Mexico wall as “not Christian.” Francis reiterated his second point a few days ago when he said, “Muslim terrorism does not

In his press conference last week, in which President Trump ranted and raved that he wasn´t ranting and raving, he answered a question about his wife, Melania. "That´s what I call a very nice question," he said, apparently relieved to stop talking about his own policies, before saying the first lady feels very strongly about "women´s issues" and "women´s difficulties." Trump didn´t specify what these "issues" and "difficulties" might be. One presumes that, despite the phrasing, he probably meant things like equal pay and health care, and not what old men usually mean when they cryptically speak about our "difficulties."

Ross Douthat accurately describes him this way: [He is] a gay cross-dressing Catholic part-Jewish Brit who likes to boast about his sexual appetite, favors "ironic" racial and misogynist humor, and not occasionally describes the president of the United States as “Daddy.” Daily Beast media columnist Lloyd Grove views him as: ...

"It´s totally crazy, but the cool thing is that once you get past that, you start thinking that maybe it´s possible. Who cares that he´s not French? He´s Barack Obama," one of the campaign organizers told CNN. They´ve launched a website and they put up 500 posters of Obama around Paris last weekend, said the organizer. He asked to be identified only as Antoine. They're hoping to get 1 million people to sign a petition urging Obama to
