    Like so many of my fellow freepers, I have real intellectual problems with Google and the way it operates, but I've tended to stick with them because their news search function was extremely helpful. But they've changed things and their news search is much less helpful now.

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Sunday his country had foiled Western designs to topple him but his army had not yet won the fight to end Syria's six-year-old insurgency. In an televised address, Assad said that even though there were signs of victory after six-and-a-half years of civil war, the "battle continues, and where we go later and it becomes possible to talk about victory...that's a different matter".

    In this world we may have knowledge or repose but we may not have both. The human condition is a series of decisions; we either deal with them or circumstances deal with us. Once a bell is rung in our presence we cannot un-ring it. All of these apply to our relationship to the Drudge Report. For years we have looked to Matt Drudge and his Drudge Report as a place where we could get some actual news. During the presidential election cycle last year this was especially true. While the foaming-at-the-mouth liars in the media churned out their disinformation...

    In September 2014, I watched a tank battle from a hilltop in Mariupol, Ukraine. I toured that battlefield, the day the first cease-fire was signed, on Sept. 5, 2014. I witnessed a wasteland of charred, destroyed tanks, and armored personnel carriers.And scores of dead soldiers who reminded me of the plaster molds of the dead in Pompeii, the way they seemed to be frozen in the moment and the motion of their deaths.

    A federal prosecutor’s body was discovered on a Hollywood, Florida beach on May 24. He was shot in the head. Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr.’s body was found in May by a random individual. The police were investigating at the time to determine if Whisenant’s death was a “homicide, suicide, or something else.” Whisenant worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in its major crimes unit. He was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district.

  • GOP Donors Respond to Obamacare Repeal Failure, Withhold Donations

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | Aug. 8, 2017 | Kathryn Covert
    Republican donors are protesting GOP lawmakers' failure to repeal Obamacare by withholding donations to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. At least $2 million in contributions originally promised to the NRSC have not materialized, CNN reported Tuesday. The failure of Republicans to fulfill a central campaign promise particularly concerns some donors because it could disillusion core voters heading into the 2018 midterms. The uncertainty could put the Republicans' majority—especially in the House of Representatives—at risk.

    WASHINGTON — If you don't like what they're saying, change the conversation. Or, in the case of President Donald Trump's campaign, produce your own news series. In the fight against what Trump has decried as "fake news" about him and his administration, his team has launched its own version of events: Taking the president's frequent laments about a lack of media focus on jobs, the stock market and the economy and turning it into a weekly video posted to Facebook focusing on just that. "More great economic news on Friday," former pro-Trump cable news commentator Kayleigh McEnany says, seated in...

    There’s appears to be a new sheriff in town. Amid the constant political news coming from President Donald Trump’s White House — much of which is unfavorable to the president — leading MSNBC network anchor Rachel Maddow has found herself dominating her competition. For the month of July, Maddow handedly defeated her competition each night she was on TV in overall ratings, save for three nights: twice at the beginning of July when Fox News host Tucker Carlson bested her and on July 11 when Fox host Sean Hannity topped her by just a few thousand viewers. That night, Hannity’s...

    Adweek/ ^ | 8/1/17 | Stephanie Tsoflias
    Sinclair’s two stations in Portland, Maine are making headlines for their ‘must run’ segments. The Press Herald posted a story over the weekend that described the stations as ‘being under fire for pro-Trump’ political segments that run on WGME and WPFO. A politically independent viewer, Marc McCutcheon, described the experience of watching the must-runs as “surreal,” “extremely jarring” and “so out of place with the friendly, local broadcast from news people I’ve come to trust over the years.” There was no rebuttal, no context, no alternate point of view – a situation he found concerning.” According to the Herald: WGME-TV...
