The editor of the Washington Post, which staffed up its White House team to cover the new administration, said the paper would have covered a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidency with the same intensity as it has President Trump. Cheered by journalists at a media roundtable in California late Tuesday, Marty Baron also said that despite some criticism, the Post is doing its job, not acting as the opposition. (Video) "I just look at it as a new administration that we should be covering as aggressively, as energetically as possible. If Hillary Clinton were in the White House, we would be
I believe it. Since the WP is 100% fake now, I assume they mean they would have been 100% fake for Hillary as well, the same way they were during the campaign and the same way they covered Obama. 100% fake and the opposite to the truth.
HAH, from the post pucker of the MSM´s lips from their last presidential love affair, and their obvious carrying the water of Mz Clinton in our happily over election, it is so obvious that they are treating Trump exactly as they did Obama and Clinton was and would have been. HAH he laughed
The WaPo and the rest of the msm groveled at the feet of their messiah, obama and gushed if he ever put three words together without the teleprompter. The meaning of journalist has been redefined along the lines as a willing accomplice in spreading the socialist/progressive party line to the masses.
So, where are the investigative reports on the Clinton Foundation graft, corruption, and pay to play?? Where´s the true story of why she was hiding a Server in her basement loaded with Classified Federal documents?? And what´s the REAL relationship between her and her Huma??
Sorry I would´ve typed this sooner but I had to get off the floor because I was laughing so hard! Is this guy serious? This is the same Washington Compost who editorial board: Wrote that the Lewinsky affair was only about sex. Called GWB a warmonger. Ran columns about how hip and cool Obama was. Whose boss Jeff Bozos was all in for Hillary and hates Trump. That Washington Compost. Ok I´m staring to laugh again.
At least 28 people have been injured when a truck plowed into party-goers at a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans. The crash happened at the corner of Orleans and N. Carrollton avenues at around 6.45pm during the Endymion Parade. NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said there is no evidence to suspect this is terrorism and that the 26-year-old driver appeared ´highly intoxicated´. Victims´ ages range from age four to their early forties, according to the New Orleans Advocate. In total, 21 were taken to seven different hospitals throughout the city and five are in critical condition. Seven declined treatment. Valerie, a
(Video) LIMON - If you fly in or out of Denver soon, you might spot what we’re pretty sure is the state’s largest political sign. Frustrated at some of the negativity coming from opponents of President Donald Trump, rancher Doug Koehn hopped on his plow and carved the word “TRUMP” in big block letters into his field. “The letters are 800 feet wide and approximately 800 feet long,” Koehn said. “A mile-long Trump.” You can’t really read it from ground level. The first time Koehn saw the whole thing in one frame was when 9NEWS showed up with a drone to
In the last few years, more than 230 American colleges and universities — 143 of them lavishly funded by taxpayers — have launched bias reporting systems encouraging students to report each other for incidents of offensive speech and other kinds of “bias.” The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) published an exhaustive survey of such speech-chilling bias reporting systems earlier this month. The speech and conduct of some 2.84 million students in the United States are subject to evaluation under bias reporting systems, according to the civil rights group. The personnel who investigate student speech — usually called some
They say after a drinks, the truth always comes out. Not with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, as all he needs is a latino audience and a camera. The television anchor let it be known who he thinks the United States really “belongs to” at the Univision Music Awards. (Video) From NewsBusters: Further ramping up his open opposition to President Trump’s immigration law enforcement policies, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos has let loose with an outrageous tirade that could best be described as equal parts nationalistic identity politics, racially-driven demagoguery, and yet another instance of the irresponsible conflation of legal and illegal immigration.
Former Senator Barbara Boxer defended Meryl Streep’s controversial, politically-charged Golden Globes acceptance speech and urged Democratic politicians to follow her lead during CAA’s “Take Action Day” summit on Thursday. Boxer — who just signed on as a client at CAA after leaving the Senate last year — was one of several politicians and progressive leaders taking part in what the Hollywood mega-agency billed a “non-partisan” political summit for clients and staff. “I don’t think she talks down to anybody,” Boxer said of Streep during a conversation with CAA agent Michael Kives, according to Deadline. “I don’t think it’s up to
Former President Obama and other top Democrats are focusing efforts on state-level races and ending the reconfiguring of voting districts through the politically-laden process known as gerrymandering -- a combined effort to end “Trump-ism” and help their party regain control of Congress and legislatures across the country. Obama indicated before leaving the White House last fall that his short-term, post-presidency focus will be on General Assembly races and redistricting after the 2020 Census. And 2016 presidential candidate former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has become the most recent high-profile Democrat to take up the cause. “America needs non-partisan redistricting commissions,” O’Malley said
Rutgers University spent nearly $1.5million on its 2016 commencement ceremony because of that year´s keynote speaker, then-President Barack Obama. The hefty price tag is $523,000 more than it cost the university the year before, when its commencement speaker was Bill Nye ´The Science Guy,´ according to NJ Advance Media. A final accounting by the university found that most of the money was spent on the extensive security measures needed to accommodate the president as well as the record crowd that witnessed the event at the school´s football stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey. The university used the funds to pay for
President Trump escalated his ongoing feud with the media on Saturday by announcing he won´t be going to the White House Correspondents Association Dinner in April. "I will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!" Trump tweeted Saturday. (Tweet) Trump has been locked in a war with the media for most of his time as a politician, going so far as to call the news media the "enemy of the American people" last week. In recent days, reports began circulating that some media organizations were considering whether
So far, the Senate has confirmed 14 of the 549 senior federal positions that President Trump needs to run the government and who need Senate confirmation—Cabinet secretaries and people who run the departments, bureaus, agencies and the rest of the government. The rest of the government is being run by career bureaucrats and a few Obama holdovers. There are another 120 vacant federal judgeships and, of course, the Neil Gorsuch nomination to the Supreme Court. Each requires Senate approval. White House staff is busily choosing and vetting candidates for the rest of the positions, and there undoubtedly will be many
Liberal protesters became enraged when a Louisiana town hall with Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy opened with a prayer earlier this week, screaming at the chaplain as he tried to lead the crowd in prayer. The protesters, who were there with a local chapter of anti-Trump group Indivisible, can be heard groaning and shouting as the chaplain says, “In God we trust.” One man can be heard saying, “Pray on your own time!” Others shouted incredulously, “Prayer? Prayer?” Video of the event, first reported by The Washington Free Beacon, reveals one woman shouting the name “Lucifer” while the chaplain invokes God’s
Apparently Angel Luis Rivera Aponte, aka Miguel Baez Zapata, didn’t get the memo about how he’s supposed to be hiding “in the shadows” because of President Trump. On Tuesday, this Dominican national was at the Division of Motor Vehicles in Manchester, N.H., trying to get himself a driver’s license, claiming to be from Manchester, instead of Lawrence, where he’s really from (surprise, surprise). Alas for Mr. Aponte or Zapata, the New Hampshire State Police arrived. According to the press release, the state police, with a little help from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), “were able to confirm that the documents he
CNN is considering sitting out of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, according to two people familiar with the matter, as the annual star-studded affair takes on renewed scrutiny from media outlets irked by the White House’s demonization of the press. CNN is still actively discussing internally whether it will ultimately send staffers to the event, which is scheduled for April 29, according to one of these people. “We haven’t made a decision on it yet,” a CNN spokesperson said. In recent years, the dinner traditionally involves presidents trying to rib the press after an A-list comedian — like Larry Wilmore,
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,
An upbeat Hillary Clinton popped back into the political spotlight Friday with a three-minute address to Democrats, applauding them for being the ´resistance´ against President Donald Trump. 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. She´s called out the new president several times on Twitter, writing simply ´3-0´
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
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
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
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."
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
Tonight is the big night: all across the country, witches will gather to light candles and mutter incantations in hopes of evicting President Trump from the White House: "Men and women from around the world are planning to gather and cast a spell at midnight that will stop President Trump from doing harm while also possibly banishing him from office." (Snip) The idea is that these witchcraft events will continue until Trump is “driven from office.” There is a chant, too. It begins: Hear me, oh spirits / Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air / Heavenly hosts / Demons of the infernal
Milo Yiannopoulos is neither a free speech martyr nor a conservative. Rather, he is a flamboyant and provocative troll. 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: ... [an] embattled Donald Trump groupie and alt-right provocateur -- who usually baits African Americans, Jews, women, transgender people, and his fellow gay men at his various speaking engagements in a merry tone of
(Video) - Could France elect Barack Obama president? Not really -- but that´s not stopping the organizers of Obama17, a guerrilla campaign trying to entice the former U.S. president to head to Paris. "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
