    Over the past decade, attackers motivated by right-wing political ideologies have committed dozens of shootings, bombings and other acts of violence, far more than any other category of domestic extremist, according to a Washington Post analysis of data on global terrorism.
  • As Midterm Vote Nears, Trump Reprises a Favorite Message: Fear Immigrants

    The New York Slimes ^ | 01 NOV 2018 | Michael D. Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis
    WASHINGTON — President Trump’s closing argument is now clear: Build tent cities for migrants. End birthright citizenship. Fear the caravan. Send active-duty troops to the border. Refuse asylum. Immigration has been the animating issue of the Trump presidency, and now — with the possibility that Republicans could face significant losses in the midterm elections on Tuesday — the president has fully embraced a dark, anti-immigrant message in the hope that stoking fear will motivate voters to reject Democrats. In a rambling speech on Thursday afternoon that was riddled with falsehoods and vague promises to confront a “crisis” at the border,...

    CNN President Jeff Zucker said his network's audience would dwindle if its news programming shifted away from covering President Trump. In an interview published in the latest issue of Vanity Fair, Zucker said the reason why CNN spends much of the day reporting on Trump's day-to-day activities and his rhetoric stems from viewer demand. “People say all the time, ‘Oh, I don’t want to talk about Trump, I’ve had too much Trump,’ ” Zucker told Vanity Fair. “And yet at the end of the day, all they want to do is talk about Trump." "We’ve seen that anytime you break...

    <p>WASHINGTON (AP) — The prognosis for President Donald Trump and his party was grim.</p> <p>In a post-Labor Day briefing at the White House, a top Republican pollster told senior staff that the determining factor in the election wouldn’t be the improving economy or the steady increase in job creation. It would be how voters feel about Trump. And the majority of the electorate, including a sizable percentage of Republican-leaning voters, doesn’t feel good about the president, according to a presentation from pollster Neil Newhouse that spanned dozens of pages.</p>

    For those of us who still love getting our news from newspapers, those inky, crinkly, thin sheets of wood pulp you hold in your hands and read, these indeed are sad times. Print newspapers, thanks in large part to the meteoric rise of smartphones and online and social media, are in serious decline. [Snip] Many media analysts believe it won’t be long before print newspapers disappear. If it happens, they in large part will be devoured by a voracious horde of online and social media, many of which have little respect for the notion that the first function of news...

    I'm confused. How is this different than every other day in the media? "The dirty war on the free press must end." That's the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. Unusual? That's been the same theme that the media has been putting out for a few weeks. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump's escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. There's been a coordinated campaign against Republicans by the media for around 90 years. "We propose to publish an editorial on August...

    CNN correspondent Jim Acosta discusses his question to press secretary Sarah Sanders, when she refused to say that the press was not the enemy of the American people. Acosta was so distressed that he walked out of Thursday's press briefing. Acosta came up with an idea to combat the 'CNN sucks' chants of Trump supporters: "I think maybe we should make some bumper stickers. Make some buttons, you know maybe we should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue like these folks who chant CNN sucks and fake news, maybe we should go out, all journalists should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue...

    If the media can dish it out, they should be prepared to take it. Tuesday night, at a Trump rally in Tampa, Fla., Jim Acosta complained about the crowd booing him, even making it part of his on-air bit with Wolf Blitzer. “You can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here — saying things like ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home’ and ‘fake news,’ ” Acosta complained. Then, in what has become a ritual with Acosta, he signed off with some virtue-signalling and then gave a nod to his own, insurmountable dedication to journalism in...

    Well, that escalated quickly. The rise of “democratic socialism” has been one of the key developments in the Democratic Party in recent years, first with the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and more recently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s primary win over party mainstay Rep. Joe Crowley in New York. One of the ways the movement is presented is with the claim that this is not your grandfather’s socialism -- or the socialism of the former Soviet Union, Venezuela or other failed states. It’s more “Scandinavian health care” than overthrowing the bourgeoisie. But now a democratic socialist writer is leveling with voters,...

    Today, we heard from CNN, who decried Trump and his supporters for insulting and heckling them ... and repeated the oft-inferred comparison to fascism and Nazism. Iexpected these headlines: CBS: “Trump Criticized For Resisting Our Narrative; Experts Shocked” NYT: “Evil Racist Ignorant Fascist Bastard Trump Accuses Media of Bias” NBC: “Without Any Provocation, Trump Wildly Lashes Out At News Groups” CNN: “DEATH TO ANYONE WHO ACCUSES US OF INCITING VIOLENCE!” MSNBC: “What A Nazi Trump Is. F&$^ Him. What A C*$&*$&#R.” I didn't make it a daily thing, that would be forced. I'll make a new episode when warranted.

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders visbly upset some journalists during a briefing on Thursday when she complained about physical dangers she has faced in her job and her unprecedented need for Secret Service protection, and blamed the reporters in the room for causing it. Challenging her directly, one reporter responded: 'Tell that to the five dead journalists in Maryland.' On June 28 a gunman stormed the newsroom at the Annapolis Capital newspaper and shot dead John McNamara, Gerald Fischman, Rob Hiaasen, Wendi Winters and Rebecca Smith. Another journalist at the White House Thursday griped afterward: 'She’s going to get...

    CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta expressed concern on Tuesday with the way President Trump's supporters heckle members of the press, warning that the president's rhetoric could "result in somebody getting hurt." Acosta posted a video from Trump's rally in Tampa, Fla., on Tuesday showing supporters shouting down members of the press. At one point, one man in the crowd looks into the camera and yells, "stop lying." "Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa," Acosta tweeted. "I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative...

    The publisher of the New York Times has urged President Donald Trump not to continue labelling reporters "enemies of the people", saying it could "lead to violence" against the media. AG Sulzberger made the details of their off-the-record meeting public after Mr Trump tweeted about it. In his initial tweet, the president said it had been a "very good" meeting. But he later accused media of putting people's lives at risk through their reporting. His first tweet read: "Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News...
