    CNN's Don Lemon Named To 'Worst Journalism Of 2014' List by Wochit Don Lemon has picked up a dubious honor: ranking in a Columbia Journalism Review fellow's list of the "worst journalism" of 2014. The anchor has made headlines throughout the year for controversial moments during his tenure as a CNN newsroom anchor. In a post written by David Uberti, the CJR fellow makes a case for why Lemon deserves to be ranked along with other missteps in journalism over the past year. Uberti wrote, "As one of the most recognizable anchors on CNN, Don Lemon has helped lead the...

    It’s remarkable that Don Lemon is pursuing this question, which is generally taboo in the mainstream media. He discussed it a few days ago; this is a follow-up. But notice that just as CNN featured two Jew-haters, Reza Aslan and Peter Beinart, to debate about Israel and Hamas, so also here both Aslan and Muslim Brotherhood-linked Congressman Keith Ellison are both on the same side of the question.

Even at Fox, commentators routinely affirm that the problem is that “radicals” who have “hijacked” Islam.

    Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman got into an argument on CNN with host Don Lemon and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin when he was brought on to discuss his victory this week in a lawsuit challenging NSA surveillance, resulting in Lemon cutting him off the screen and Klayman comparing Lemon to disgraced former MSNBC host Martin Bashir. Klayman’s appearance Tuesday night on CNN was preceded by a profile of him that included a quotation from a former George W. Bush staffer saying his lawsuits were about “fighting for himself and his own, in my opinion, delusions of grandeur.” When Klayman was...

    General Motors and General Electric are two companies that have been in the political crosshairs lately. GM stands accused of “crony capitalism,” while GE is under fire for paying no Federal income taxes in 2010. The two companies share more than that though, with GE placing an order for 12,000 Chevy Volts and other hybrid vehicles. A memo leaked to Green Car Reports lays out GE’s plans for their new fleet of Volts, and as expected, it has some people crying foul. The memo, sent to employees of GE Healthcare Americas team explains that all sedan, crossover, and minivan purchases...

    Don Lemon is having a coming out party--and this one has nothing to do with the CNN weekend anchor's recent announcement that he's gay. Lemon--who came out of the closet in a memoir published in May--was the focus of a "Daily Show" segment last week. Lemon's biggest on-air moment to-date happened on Saturday, when he clashed with Sen. Rand Paul during a segment the debt ceiling debate. Lemon had asked all congressional guests to discuss the then-partisan deadlock on Capitol Hill "without talking points." When Lemon pressed Paul to discuss the tea party position without them, the exchange became a...

    After proposing a balanced budget amendment to the Reid bill and having it struck down, Sen. Rand Paul sat down with Don Lemon to explain what was happening on the floor and what compromises he was up for making. Lemon was in a curt mood, it seems, as weeks have gone by and the debt deadline looms with little to no visible progress occurring. The two had a contentious exchange as Sen. Paul tried to explain he did have the will to compromise when Lemon questioned what it would take.

    The CNN anchor has been applauded for announcing that he is gay, but some say he unfairly portrayed all blacks as homophobic. ...Lemon "came out" in a recent New York Times profile, in which he discussed his new book, Transparent, which was spurred by his disclosure last fall that he was molested as a child. The weekend news anchor explained to the Times that he knows that a common reaction to the news will be that people will try to make a connection between his sexuality and past sexual victimization as a young boy.

Don Lemon, the weekend prime-time anchor for CNN, was on the air on Sunday night this month when the news broke that President Obama would address the nation at the unusual hour of 10:30 p.m. By the time the news network was confirming the reports of the death of Osama bin Laden, however, Mr. Lemon had been replaced by CNN’s chief anchor, Wolf Blitzer. “I kind of got big-footed,” Mr. Lemon said, with a knowing laugh.

    Teacher tenure is considered holy gospel in most of America’s public schools. But this policy does nothing for children, and tends to protect teachers who don’t necessarily deserve job security. Why is it we never hear stories about tenure protecting “good” teachers instead of helping “bad” ones? One bad teacher was former band instructor-turned convict Matt Lang, who is now sitting in an Illinois state penitentiary. Lang was convicted of having sex with a 16-year-old student from Alton (Illinois) High School. But the mother of his victim is suing the nearby O’Fallon school district, where Lang previously worked, claiming administrators...

    Citrus species are among the most important fruit trees in the world. Citrus has a long history of cultivation, often thought to be more than 4,000 years. Until now, however, the exact genetic origins of cultivated citrus such as sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), lemon (C. limon), and grapefruit (C. paradisi) have been a mystery. A team of researchers from China has published a study in the Journal of the American Society of Horticultural Science that provides genetic evidence of the origins of a variety species of today's cultivated citrus. The research team, led by Zhiqin Zhou from Southwest University, analyzed...

    Let us compare the Volkswagen and the "Voltswagen." The original Volkswagen was intended as the "people's car" (that's what Volkswagen means). The idea of a cheap, safe, reliable car for the working man was popular before Adolf Hitler embraced it, but as a self-proclaimed man of the people, he made the idea his own. Whereas industrialists and aristocrats didn't think the common man needed a car ("the people's car is a bus" was their refrain), Hitler sided with one of his heroes, Henry Ford, arguing that everyone deserved his own ride. He ordered the German Labor Front, the union arm...

    So the future of General Motors (and the $50 billion taxpayer investment in it) now depends on a vehicle that costs $41,000 but offers the performance and interior space of a $15,000 economy car. The company is moving forward on a second generation of Volts aimed at eliminating the initial model’s considerable shortcomings. (In truth, the first-generation Volt was as good as written off inside G.M., which decided to cut its 2011 production volume to a mere 10,000 units rather than the initial plan for 60,000.) Yet G.M. seemingly has no plan for turning its low-volume “eco-flagship” into a mass-market...

    American taxpayers paid a lot of cash for those clunkers: $24,000 for each new car sold, according to a study released Wednesday. The government could have done almost as well by just giving away cars for free, instead of creating an elaborate incentive program, according to an analysis by the automotive information firm Edmunds.com in Santa Monica, Calif. ... to look at how many people purchased cars that otherwise wouldn’t have been bought. The firm says that number is about 125,000 cars. By that measure, the government spent $24,000 to generate each sale of a new car. In all, the...

    We knew it was the worst year in Airbus' history—and now it looks as if it might have been even worse than we thought. On Jan. 17, Airbus acknowledged it would post an operating loss for 2006, with fallout from production woes on the A380 megajet slashing billions from the bottom line, even as the planemaker reaped a record $33.6 billion in revenues. In a profit warning, Airbus' parent company, European Aeronautics Defence & Space, said it would take charges for penalty payments to A380 customers, and for asset writedowns connected to the project. Costs from a restructuring program spurred...
