    As employees from the paper protest against massive cuts to the newsroom and top editors resign, staffers tell The Daily Beast, ‘This is chaos.’ ==================================================================================== It seems odd that they’re fighting for the right to speak at a place called The Lipstick Building. Today, 150 journalists from the Denver Post, the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and the Mercury News, and 49 other smaller papers who are accustomed to reporting the news will become the news, as they protest the owner of their papers in what some have called “a fight for their lives.” Alden Global Capital has been surprisingly silent...

    An editor at The Denver Post who oversaw an editorial critical of budget and staff cuts made by the newspaper's New York-based hedge fund owners has resigned. Editorial Page Editor Chuck Plunkett ... The Post last month published Plunkett's initial editorial headlined "As vultures circle, The Denver Post must be saved," calling on Alden to sell the newspaper. ... Plunkett said he was warned afterward "not to bite the hand that fed us" but couldn't stay silent.

    The Denver Post is in open revolt against its owner. Angry and frustrated journalists at the 125-year-old newspaper took the extraordinary step this weekend of publicly blasting its New York-based hedge-fund owner and making the case for its own survival ... The bold tactic was born out of a dissatisfaction not uncommon in newsrooms across the country as newspapers grapple with the loss of revenue ... The lead editorial pulled no punches, describing executives at Alden Global Capital, the paper’s hedge-fund owner, as “vulture capitalists.” ... “The @denverpost is being murdered by its owners,” one Post reporter, John Wenzel, wrote...

    President Trump stepped on stage in Phoenix on Tuesday night with something clearly eating at him. Minutes into his style rally, we learned what: It wasn't the white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan and the neo-Nazis who threw the nation into chaos and allegedly killed a woman in Virginia last week. Or the intractable 16-year war in Afghanistan that he just announced he's revving up. It's the media. Trump spent nearly a third — if not more— of his 90-minute rally rehashing his public remarks in the wake of Charlottesville and complaining that he was widely criticized for them....

    There was no press honeymoon for President Trump during his first month in office. A meticulous new study by the Media Research Center finds that 88 percent of the broadcast news coverage of Mr. Trump and his team was “hostile” during the first 30 days of office. The coverage was intense and plentiful. The study, which analyzed both tone and content for evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS, found that the “Big Three” networks produced 16 hours of coverage on the new president and his staff. That is over half — 54 percent — of their total coverage for...

    I tried to post an article about the death of Tyson Gay's daughter, and it was apparently pulled because the title of the post was only a portion of the original. Trouble is, the original title was too long to fit (way over 100 characters). What the heck? Can it only be posted as a vanity that will be largely ignored? Mods or others PLEASE advise!

    Washington Post ^ | September 9, 2016 | Anne Gearan, Jenna Johnson and John Wagner
    NEW YORK — With Election Day less than two months away, Democrats are increasingly worried that Hillary Clinton has not built a formidable lead against Donald Trump despite his historic weaknesses as a national party candidate. Even the Democratic nominee’s advisers acknowledge that she must make changes, and quickly. Clinton leads Trump by three percentage points, having fallen from her high of nine points in August, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average. That tightening has frustrated many Clinton allies and operatives, who are astonished that she isn’t running away with this race, given Trump’s deep unpopularity and his continuing stream...

    Facebook brought down the banhammer on the outreach coordinator for Dinesh D’Souza’s Hillary’s America on Saturday, two days before the Democratic National Convention begins and Hillary is finally coronated. Journalist and producer Jeremy Oliver works as an outreach coordinator for the documentary Hillary’s America and posted links encouraging other group members to watch and review the film the night it premiered. Shortly after that, Facebook imposed a “temporary restriction” on his posting permissions.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7e6gLht6OQ
  • Washington Post to DNC: Story ‘Running on A1 Tomorrow… You All Will Be Totally Fine with It’

    The tight relationship between The Washington Post and the Democratic National Committee was borne out in emails discovered in the 20,000-deep email trove from the DNC posted on WikiLeaks. In an April 26 email to Mark Paustenbach, the DNC’s deputy communications director, the paper’s White House Bureau Chief Juliet Eilperin wrote: Subject: just FYI, the story is running on A1 tomorrow Dear Mark, I think you all will be totally fine with it.

Now, I have a question to ask based on that. Look, does the Wall Street Journal really want to admit that it is powerless to influence thinking in this country? The Wall Street Journal's been for open borders! The Wall Street Journal editorial page has been pro-amnesty for as long as the subject has been around. They are...

    <p>The Washington Post shocked the liberal world by firing liberal columnist Harold Meyerson—not over ideology, but because he failed to attract enough readers for the Post to justify his continued employment.</p> <p>The Post opinion section takes pride in publishing a wide range of views, including progressives Eugene Robinson, EJ Dionne, Ruth Marcus, Greg Sargent, Paul Waldman and Katrina vanden Heuvel and contributing columnists Rachel Maddow and Danielle Allen. We’ve been pleased to publish Harold’s columns for the past 13 years, but he failed to attract readers as these others have. And while our decision should never be made based only on clicks, I think it would be arrogant to entirely ignore what our readers are telling us.</p>

In part because the polling doesn’t lend well to the preferred media ratings narrative, NBC is bending over backward to say the poll is “not scientific“.

When asked: who won the debate? ♦ Carly Fiorina 22% ♦ Donald Trump 18% ♦ Marco Rubio 13% ♦ Ted Cruz 12% ♦ Ben Carson 8% When asked: Who Lost? ♦ Donald Trump...

    Amid reports that the Obama administration is refusing to share information regarding Iran with Israel as “punishment” for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech before Congress, The Washington Post’s David Ignatius on Monday provided new details into the tensions between Jerusalem and Washington. According to Ignatius’s column, the mistrust between the Obama administration and Netanyahu has widened even further in recent days because of suspicion in the United States that the Israeli prime minister has authorized leaks of details about the U.S. nuclear talks with Iran. “The decision to reduce the exchange of sensitive information about the Iran talks was...
