    The DuMont Television Network was launched in 1946 and ceased broadcasting in 1956. Allen DuMont, who created the network, preserved most of what it produced in kinescope format. By 1958, however, much of the library had been destroyed to recover the silver content.[1] Most of whatever survived was loaded onto three trucks and dumped into Upper New York Bay in the mid-1970s.[2][3] Since then, there has been extensive research on which DuMont programs have episodes extant. Due to the possibilities that various unknown collectors may be in possession of programs and/or episodes not listed here, and that the sources below...

    Four members of a crew filming a television reality show in downtown Oakland were robbed at gunpoint Monday night of $50,000 worth of equipment and personal items, according to a victim and authorities.

How can you listen to that?” Savage asked. (From the Savage Newsletter)
  • New Turkey purge on eve of failed coup anniversary

    Turkey announced the dismissal of another 7,000 police, soldiers and officials on Friday, a new purge on the eve of the one-year anniversary of a military-led coup that failed to topple President Tayyip Erdogan. July 15 has been declared an annual national holiday of "democracy and unity" and the authorities want people to see the foiling of the putsch as a historic victory of Turkish democracy. Friday's measures, however, mean that 50,000 people have been arrested and a further 100,000 sacked in response to the thwarted bid to overthrow Erdogan. Some 7,563 people were fired in the latest cull, the...
  • Village president: 'I owe nobody an apology' for posts (calls for killing all muslims)

    Traverse City Eagle Record ^ | 7-11-17 | Mark Johnson
    Kalkaska’s village president’s continued refusal to apologize for his Facebook posts may trigger an attempt to remove him from office. A series of posts village President Jeff Sieting shared on his personal Facebook page — including one that appeared to call for the killing of Muslims — caught Cindy Anderson’s eye several weeks ago. She and others fruitlessly sought Sieting’s apology at a June 26 village meeting. Anderson, a real estate broker who owns land in the county and grew up near Kalkaska, returned for Monday’s village council meeting and asked Sieting if he thinks he should apologize for the...

  • TV networks hide bad ratings with typos, report says (cbsnbcabc lie!)

    CNET ^ | 7-6-17 | Ry Crist
    When an episode performs poorly with viewers, the networks often intentionally misspell the show title in their report to Nielsen, according to the Journal. This fools the system into separating that airing out as a different show and keeping it from affecting the correctly-spelled show's average overall rating. The report says the practice was initially used sparingly -- for instance, when a broadcast would go up against a major sporting event. But it has now grown fairly common, with NBC misspelling the title of "NBC Nightly News" 14 times since the current TV season began last fall. At one point,...

    Publishers Weekly ^ | 7-7-17 | John Maher
    At a rain-soaked rally on July 7 in Midtown Manhattan, about 100-150 fans and a large contingent of police lined the sidewalk by S&S's offices. There, just after noon, Yiannopoulos announced that he had filed a lawsuit against Simon & Schuster with the Supreme Court of the State of New York earlier that morning. S&S, he said, let him keep $80,000 of the advance he had been paid. He is seeking damages of "at least" $10 million. "They have to pay for silencing conservatives," he said at the rally. "How many books could I have sold with their marketing muscle?"

    Education and income make a difference. Nearly nine in ten Americans with a college education or income above $50,000 are able to identify Great Britain as the country from which the United States won its liberty. Of note, white Americans, 84%, are also more likely than Latino residents, 70%, or African Americans, 53%, to correctly identify Great Britain. Although race is a factor, its importance is exaggerated by differences in education and income among ethnic groups. Interestingly, age makes little difference. “Curious about other countries that get mentioned?” asks Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for...

    Uh, sorry folks, but words mean things and science trumps feelings. Let's break this down. There are three sexual orientations: Straight, Gay, and Bi. If you have no attraction to members of the same sex, you're straight. If you have no attraction to members of the opposite sex, you're gay. If you have some attraction, some of the time, to members of both sexes, you're bi. If you have any degree of attraction to someone of the same sex as you, then you're Bi. You might be 1% Bi, you might choose to never act on your attraction (just as...
  • A Town Turned Mean: What happened to downtown Minneapolis?

    If downtown is the heartbeat of Minneapolis, then its collective soul resides on Hennepin Avenue, the corridor that’s long served as its cultural, commercial, and entertainment epicenter. But these days, visitors aren’t seeing the intoxicating glimmer Schmidt beheld so long ago. Talk to civic leaders, downtown workers, and couples descending from Burnsville, and they’ll tell you to drive down Hennepin with the windows open once the sun has called it day. If you watch and listen, the feeling isn’t one of good vibrations. It’s energy with a serrated edge, the vibe that comes from a city turning mean. Apocalypse now...
