    In a cartoon published and boosted by The New York Times, President Donald Trump fantasizes about having a gay relationship with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. "In Episode Two of 'Trump Bites ...' Mr. Trump's not-so-secret admiration for President Vladimir Putin of Russia plays out in a teenager’s bedroom, where the fantasies of this forbidden romance come to life," reads the Times description. The video was created by Academy Award-nominated animator Bill Plympton and set to audio clips of Trump praising Putin.

    Subtitle: Covering Hillary Clinton’s campaign from before it started to the very last moment. Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne. It was just after 9 p.m. on election night and she was having her hair and makeup done in the family’s suite at the Peninsula hotel. She stopped to pour what somebody told me was Veuve Clicquot into everyone’s glasses, figuring that in a couple of hours Donald Trump’s run of early victories in red states (West Virginia, Oklahoma, Alabama) would end and the map would turn back in her mom’s favor. Three hours later,...

    Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Twitter this morning accused British diver Vern Unsworth of being a pedophile, after Unsworth criticized Musk’s proposal to use a small submarine to rescue a trapped soccer team in Thailand. Unsworth was instrumental in the rescue of the boy’s soccer team, but lambasted Musk’s submarine plan in an interview published by CNN Friday. Among other comments, Unsworth said the submarine “wouldn’t have made the first 50 meters into the cave” and was “just a PR stunt.” Musk, responding to further criticism from professor and New York Times columnist Zeynep Tufekci, wrote this morning that he...

    WASHINGTON — The White House has rebuffed concerns among American intelligence and law enforcement officials and ordered that more lawmakers be given access to classified information about an informant the F.B.I. used in 2016 to investigate possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to two American officials with knowledge of the decision. Both the director of national intelligence and the director of the F.B.I. tried to keep the classified documents tightly restricted, fearing that a broader dissemination of operational reports and other sensitive material could lead to more leaks of detailed information about the role of the confidential...

    Put aside whatever suspicions you may have about whether Donald Trump will be directly implicated in the Russia investigation. Trump is right now, before our eyes and those of the world, committing an unbelievable and unforgivable crime against this country. It is his failure to defend. The intelligence community long ago concluded that Russia attacked our election in 2016 with the express intention of damaging Hillary Clinton and assisting Trump. And it was not only the spreading of inflammatory fake news over social media. As a May report from the Republican-run Senate Intelligence Committee pointed out: “In 2016, cyber actors...
  • Man is 'stabbed by multiple people' on a busy Manhattan street in broad daylight

    A man has reportedly been injured in a knife attack by multiple people in broad daylight on a busy Manhattan street. The incident was reported at 1.30pm on Thursday in Greenwich Village. A 911 caller told police that several suspects were involved during the attack outside 11 W 14th Street. The suspects reportedly fled in a white Mercedes-Benz with New York license plates. Police are currently canvassing the area for suspects and have requested an ambulance for someone with an injury to the face. This story is developing.

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has asked the offices of all 93 U.S. attorneys to each provide up to three federal prosecutors to assist the Justice Department in reviewing government records of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the New York Times reports, citing a letter it obtained. Why it matters: The Times notes that this is an unusual move because department attorneys are not typically responsible for carrying out such a task. "The production of documents could slow down a confirmation hearing that has already shaped up as a sharp partisan battle. Democratic lawmakers say they want to...

    New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet conceded on Monday his newspaper "should have coordinated better and done fewer" stories on Alan Dershowitz, after the newspaper was criticized over its coverage of the famed attorney's summer vacation. The Times ran four stories on Dershowitz over the past week that came from four different news desks and included six bylines and two additional writing credits, according to The Daily Beast. "We are trying to increase our coverage of cranky white guys," Baquet joked in a text message to a reporter with the Daily Beast. "Seriously, it's a big place and different...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's legal team demanded that before the president agrees to an interview, the special counsel's team must prove it has evidence of Trump committing a crime and that it needs testimony from the president to conclude its probe, The New York Times reported Friday. According to the Times, Trump's legal team set its new conditions on Friday with the special counsel team led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller. The demands mark further reason to believe the president will not submit voluntarily to an interview with the special counsel. The Times account painted a picture of...

    Just hours after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, media legal analysts and commentators began forecasting what this will mean for women’s reproductive freedom. On CNN: “Roe v. Wade is doomed.” Huffington Post: “It’s time to prepare for life without nationwide legal abortion.” Reuters: “a death knell for Roe v. Wade.” Or, as one commenter remarked, invoking Dylan, “looks like it’s all over now, baby blue.” I share the despair, but have we forgotten something? Republicans have a one-vote majority in the Senate. Their number includes two female moderates, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, both of whom support...

    The letters section of the New York Times is a fascinating insight into the state of liberalism, just as Kremlinologists used to study closely who stood where during military parades to figure out the state of affairs in the Soviet Union. ....snip What is most interesting about the letters to the Times is that many liberals fear, correctly, that this will drive voters into the arms of Republicans, and Trump, in 2018 and 2020. John California I am a lifelong Democrat. Never voted for a Republican in my life. Though I despise Trump, as dimwitted and mendacious as he largely...
  • Is Russiagate really Hillarygate?

    Forbes ^ | 2017 | Paul R. Gregory
    The most under covered story of Russia Gate is the interconnection between the Clinton campaign, an unregistered foreign agent of Russia headquartered in DC (Fusion GPS), and the Christopher Steele Orbis dossier. This connection has raised the question of whether Kremlin prepared the dossier as part of a disinformation campaign to sow chaos in the US political system. If ordered and paid for by Hillary Clinton associates, Russia Gate is turned on its head as collusion between Clinton operatives (not Trump’s) and Russian intelligence. Russia Gate becomes Hillary Gate. Neither the New York Times, Washington Post, nor CNN has covered...

    Just when you thought contemporary journalism couldn't sink any lower, along comes Ali Watkins, now 26, a reporter for the New York Times whose rapid rise through reporting's corrupt and partisan ranks includes stints at the Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, and Politico. Back in February, Ms. Watkins suddenly became the object of official attention when the feds seized her email and phone records as part of an investigation into a prominent Senate staffer, James Wolfe -- the former security director for the Senate Intelligence Committee and a Democrat, of course. Then, in June, Wolfe was arrested and charged with lying...

    The New York Times editorial board is calling on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her top two deputies to step aside and allow younger Democratic members to lead the caucus. The Times takes aim at Pelosi, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and Democratic Assistant Leader Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., criticizing the trio for maintaining their power rather than preparing the next generation. "For too long, this regime has clung to power at the expense of future leaders," the Times editorial board writes. "Neither of Ms. Pelosi’s two chief deputies, Steny Hoyer, the party whip, and Jim Clyburn, the...

    An “off-the-record” private discussion group for left-wing journalists, similar to the controversial “JournoList” cabal, has been discovered. The group, which is hosted on Google Groups, was discovered after messages from New York Magazine journalist Jesse Singal were leaked. “The listserv, per its ‘About’ page, aims to provide an ‘off-the-record discussion forum for left-of-center journalists, authors, academics, and wonks.’ It has been around for at least eight years (I found discussion posts dating back as far as 2010), and has just over 400 members (403 at the time of this writing),” reported Jezebel. “These members include New York Times best-selling authors,...

    Liberals love gay rights. Unless they can use gays to smear Trump. The New York Times posted this cartoon today of Trump-Putin love affair. Because gay relationships are a joke.This is who Facebook uses for “real news”. Glenn Greenwald weighed in: The NYT publishes an animated film mocking Trump and Putin for being homosexual lovers, using one disgusting gay stereotype after the next to do it. I’m sure they’ll claim some LGBT person was involved. Homophobia for progressive messaging is still bigotry.

    The New York Times is doing stories on its own reporter, a perfect instance of meta-reportage, under the pious guise of how the Ali Watkins revelations of sleeping with sources – multiple sources, it turns out – "rattled the Washington media." Really? Never seen a news agency do a full investigative piece, full of unsourced gossip, about one of its own reporters and her love life, from all her chatty, unnamed colleagues, as straight news. It's actually more like high school. It also suggests that the NYT higher-ups are getting ready to get rid of her. Maybe they care about...

    Robert Mueller's office has called out allegedly inaccurate reporting on the Russia investigation in a new court filing. A footnote in a new court filing said stories published by The New York Times and Washington Post are inaccurate and irresponsible. Manafort has previously warned that a lot of the reporting about his investigation is wrong. Robert Mueller has attacked the media, including The New York Times and the Washington Post, for reporting "inaccurately" on the Russia investigation. The rebuke came in a court filing on Thursday, which asked a judge to issue a 19-page questionnaire to potential jurors in the...

    Leading figures of both parties pressured President Trump on Sunday to halt his administration’s practice of separating children from their parents when apprehended at the border, as the issue further polarized the already divisive immigration debate in Washington. Republican lawmakers, the former first lady Laura Bush and a onetime adviser to Mr. Trump joined Democrats, including former President Bill Clinton, in condemning the family separations that have removed nearly 2,000 children from their parents in just six weeks. The administration pushed back, arguing that it was just enforcing the law — a false assertion that President Trump has made repeatedly.
