NYT's slam on Trump backfires

The headline was intriguingly contradictory:
Angry Trump Grilled His Generals About Troop Increase, Then Gave In
If he was angry why did he give in? Obviously, the New York Times was more interested in mocking the President of the United States than the newspaper was interested in logic.

CNN's source under fire

In January, CNN had the world exclusive that national security officials had a dossier that supposedly connected Donald Trump with Russia. Among the allegations in this dossier were Trump hiring hookers who urinated on Obama's bed.

No intelligent person would lend any credence to such a document, but who said CNN hired intelligent people?

Now seven months later, that Fake News story not only has fallen apart but could lead to a criminal investigation of the chaps who put it together.

WaPo settles race and age discrimination suit

David De Jesus won awards and sold a billion dollars worth of advertising over his 18 years as a salesman at the Washington Post, the Observer reported.

He's black. A white boss fired him in 2011. She also told racist jokes, the Observer said.

He sued for age and race discrimination. In a David-Goliath battle, De Jesus overturned a dismissal of the case, and settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.

The New York Post said the settlement was substantial.

It's time to chill the "free press"

Allowing Sarah Palin to continue her libel lawsuit against the New York Times "would chill expression by journalists who want to draw connections and inferences," Noah Feldman wrote in a column for Bloomberg News.

That is an excellent idea, because increasingly people in the press show a constant, malicious, and reckless disregard for the truth.

Going Medieval on global warming

Jennifer Marohasy, an Australian biologist, is a skeptical of anthropogenic global warming. She wrote of her work in trying to determine temperatures centuries ago. It is tedious work, undermined by zealots like Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia, who admitted to fudging facts -- "hide the decline" -- in emails made public in 2009.

Trump Infamy Ecosystem

We have known for some time of the symbiotic relationship between the press and Donald Trump.

Trump sells papers and attracts viewers, and so the press gives him free coverage -- often unflattering, libelous, and Fake News.

Car or air conditioner?

The National Grid, a British multinational electricity and gas utility company, issued a warning to customers: Don't boil water when you are recharging your electric car.

You'll blow a fuse.

President Trump's path to victory

Obama said Afghanistan was the real war, and Iraq the fake. He let the Islamic State take over large parts of Iraq, and ramped up the war in Afghanistan. But he had Washington make the calls. We forgot everything we learned in Vietnam.

President Trump had his generals come up with a plan for Iraq. The Islamic State is on the run.

Now for Afghanistan.

Thank you, Frederick H. Schranck

Frederick H. Schranck has posted the 88th Amazon review of "Trump the Press."
Nice record
Put together a good compilation of quotes from the nomination campaign. Seemed like good smoking of the range of wrong opinion at the time. Would have enjoyed a bit more sampling of the folks who called it correctly then.
Sadly, they were in short supply.

But thanks. The book is now 12 away from the 100th review!

Antifa bomber arrested

The media has been pushing the Antifa narrative that violence is justified.

A chicken came home to rest this weekend when a wannabe Bill Ayers tried to blow up a Confederate statue in Houston.

Fortunately, a park ranger stopped him and arrested him.
