    The Babylon Bee ^ | 3/26/2020
    WASHINGTON, DCThings have been a little tense lately in the home of journalist Todd Norbert. Normally, Norbert, a reporter for the New York Times, would be attending White House briefings or other major press conferences, looking for any excuse to accuse public figures of racism. Unfortunately, ever since being quarantined due to COVID-19 concerns, the news writer has been unable to leave his home to vilify politicians for using terms like Chinese coronavirus. Undaunted, he has been forced to innovate and adapt, scouring his own household for signs of hate and prejudice. When his seven-year-old daughter asked if he wanted...

    Holy crap. Project Veritas delivered this time, showing us an off-air, hot mic moment with anchor Amy Robach talking to her producer and others in the studio about Jeffrey Epstein. The video shows her incredulous over the newly released Epstein story, which she had and presented it to ABC. Three years ago. Why didnt she present it when she had it three years ago, before Epstein totally didnt kill himself? Because her managers at ABC told her to squash it.

    Hodan Nalayeh spent the last days of her life doing what she loved most: sharing a side of Somalia rarely depicted in the West. On Twitter, she posted photos of young boys grinning on the island of Ilisi, fresh fish and lobsters pulled straight from the Indian Ocean and a colorful sunset from the port city of Kismayo. It was an incredible day to witness #Somalias beauty, the Somali-Canadian journalist wrote. Then, on Friday, al-Shabab militants stormed the Asasey Hotel in Kismayo, killing at least 26 people, including Nalayeh, 43, and her husband, Farid Jama Suleiman. An additional 56 people...

    Portland, Ore. No hate! No fear! chanted the left-wing crowd as they marched downtown Saturday. I walked to the front of the line to record the protesters with my new GoPro camera when I was suddenly slammed on the back of my head with something hard. Dazed and still hearing faint chants of no hate, I was then punched and kicked by perhaps a dozen masked people in black. At an Antifa event meant to resist fascist violence, Ia gay journalist of colorwas beaten so badly that I was hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage. Since last year, I have been...

    My first thought after hearing of this was, “I bet AOC and her ‘Squad’ in the House would welcome a law like this.”My second thought was, “Maybe AOC’s right that right-wingers spend too much thinking about her.”We should be thinking about Trump in this case, not her. You want looser libel laws to make it easier for him to sue the “fake news media”? Okay, but remember that the left will avail itself of those laws too. Call a male-to-female transgendered person a “he” on Twitter and who knows how much you might owe. Caroline Farrow said Surrey Police...

    Kurdish artist/journalist Zehra Dogan went to prison for portraying life in southeastern Turkey during the country's state of emergency. Now she is free, and has no plans to give up her fight against injustice.Why did you paint a picture of destroyed houses with a Turkish flag? That is the question authorities asked Kurdish artist and journalist Zehra Dogan when she learned she was going to jail for her paintings, articles and social media posts. "Then they threw me in prison," she said. "But they are the ones who created this picture- I only illustrated it."Imprisoned twice for alleged terrorist ties,...

    Professional journalism groups reacted with alarm after Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas released an opinion Tuesday urging the high court to reconsider a landmark freedom of the press decision called New York Times v. Sullivan. The Sullivan ruling generally shields reporters and news platforms from libel or defamation lawsuits provided they were acting in good faith. Though journalists believe that protection is essential, Justice Thomas said the high court was wrong to usurp the role of states in regulating libel. [Sullivan] and the Courts decisions extending it were policy-driven decisions masquerading as constitutional law, Thomass opinion reads. We should not...

    The Justice Department responded to CNN's lawsuit over the revocation of Jim Acosta's press pass on Wednesday, saying in a court filing that the White House rejects the idea that it can't pick and choose which journalists can be given a permanent pass to cover it. "The President and White House possess the same broad discretion to regulate access to the White House for journalists (and other members of the public) that they possess to select which journalists receive interviews, or which journalists they acknowledge at press conferences," lawyers say in the filing. Both CNN and Acosta are plaintiffs. The...

Then, his assailant stole the mans car and used it to drive over the victims head, leaving him gravely injured. The assault occurred in May, but the victim remained on life support until his death on Thursday. To...

    A reporter from TVN told AFP, We are in shock. In no way, under any form, never have we received any threats aimed at her or the television. But that assertion was contradicted by Asen Yordanov, the owner of the investigative website, bivol.bg, who told AFP that he had received information that his reporters were in danger of being assaulted. He said Marinova was linked to bivol.bgs investigations because its reporters had appeared on her show. Viktorias death, the brutal manner in which she was killed, is an execution, Yordanov said. It was meant to serve as an example,...

    Medeni Duran wrote that his imprisoned brother Metin "cannot walk, speak, or eat and does not recognize anyone anymore. He can only breathe." Mistreatment and even torture of journalists and media employees, along with arbitrary arrests, are getting alarmingly commonplace in Turkey. At least 183 journalists and media workers in Turkey in are being held, either in pretrial detention or serving a prison sentence, according to the Platform for Independent Journalism. Dissident journalists and writers in Turkey increasingly face government threats and arbitrary arrests for their work and opinions, but for Metin Duran, the punishments have been even more...
