    The Government of Turkey has administered the Hagia Sophia as a museum – officially recognized by UNESCO as part of the Historic Areas of Istanbul World Heritage Site – in an outstanding manner for nearly a century. We urge the Government of Turkey to continue to maintain the Hagia Sophia as a museum, as an exemplar of its commitment to respect the faith traditions and diverse history that contributed to the Republic of Turkey, and to ensure it remains accessible to all. This extraordinary site is a testament to religious expression and to artistic and technical genius, reflected in its rich and...

    She has only been the White House press secretary for 83 days, but Kayleigh McEnany's carping is already getting under the skin of media bigs, one of whom Monday described her as a threat to journalistic credibility. According to a former top editor and Columbia Journalism School professor, the combative press secretary is seeking to undermine the credibility not just of individual journalists or outlets but of journalism itself. Cheered by fans for her style and regular challenges to questions from reporters, like one Monday on whether President Trump thinks it was a good thing the North won the Civil...

    White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany shot down a reporter's question on whether President Trump is glad the South lost the Civil War. During a press briefing on Monday, Ryan Lizza, chief Washington correspondent for Politico, introduced his questions by mentioning the national discussion around statues and flags that commemorate the Confederacy. "I think a lot of people are trying to understand what his view of memorializing the Confederacy is and the proper place of the Confederate flag," he said. "Does President Trump believe that it was a good thing that the South lost the Civil War?" "Well, your first...

    The Associated Press ^ | June 6, 2020
    PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Inquirers top editor is resigning after an uproar over a headline lamenting damage to businesses amid turbulent protests denouncing police brutality against people of color, the paper announced Saturday. The newspaper said Stan Wischnowski, 58, was stepping down as senior vice president and executive editor. The Inquirer had apologized for a horribly wrong decision to use the headline, Buildings Matter, Too, on a column Tuesday about looting and vandalism on the margins of protests of George Floyds death in Minneapolis at the hands of a white police officer. The Inquirer drew fresh scorn after it replaced...

    Racial politics in America are a simmering pot waiting to boil over, they have been for decades. This is only exacerbated as the poverty created by the (totally unnecessary) lockdown starts to hit home. As the weather gets hot, and jobs dry up and prices skyrocket and the small businesses closepeople will get tense. They will get angry. This is dry tinder which can burst into flames at any moment. All it took was a spark. Now the protesters swarm cities all across America, as windows are smashed, shops looted and public buildings set afire. Civilians are being maced and...

    WASHINGTON - Over 48 hours in America, the official death toll from the coronavirus pandemic topped 100,000, the number of people who filed for unemployment during the crisis soared past 40 million, and the streets of a major city erupted in flames after a handcuffed black man was killed by a white police officer. Its the kind of frenetic, fractured moment when national leaders are looked to for solutions and solace. President Donald Trump instead threw a rhetorical match into the tinderbox. When the looting starts, the shooting starts, he declared ominously in a late-night tweet. The episode encapsulated Trumps...

    Kayleigh McEnany vs. the Press Isn’t a Fair Fight Although I write about the political media a lot, I don’t consume as much of it as most people might think. The political press in this country is full of tedious, irresponsible idiots, and who needs to subject themselves to that? White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is changing my attitude on that a bit though. McEnany so routinely chides the White House press corps that they’ll probably keep wearing masks long after the coronavirus pandemic is over just to hide their embarrassed faces.Sarah Sanders was good at knocking the press...

    If the media is looking for a symbol of 'deviancy' in our politics that only '[makes] things worse,' they should stop looking at the press secretary and instead look in the mirror. New White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany isn’t letting so-called journalists get away with inane questions in the briefing room at the expense of real news, and the media don’t like it.This was on full display over the weekend during the latest media-Trump administration go-around, when McEnany sparred with reporters over the Obama administration’s malfeasance with regard to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.After a contentious exchange about...

    White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany ended Fridays press briefing by demanding answers from the gathered reporters. ,P.McEnany, in response to a question about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, treated the press to a slide show of questions that she said any good journalist would want to see answered.

    GQ magazine was severely mocked for publishing an opinion piece that incorrectly said former Alabama segregationist governor George Wallace was a Republican. The op-ed, penned by Laura Bassett, described Wallace, a former presidential candidate, as a Republican who backed abortion so there would be fewer children for the government to support. Just one catch: Wallace was a Democrat.

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany schooled a reporter about Obamagate on Friday. The smug reporter asked the press secretary to name the specific elements of the crime that members of the Obama administration may have committed. After first acknowledging the lack of journalistic curiosity on the subject by the mainstream media, McEnany went through a list of possible crimes. "The Steele Dossier, funded by the Democratic National Committee, ... was used to obtain FISA warrants to listen in on conversations of people within the Trump campaign. There was the unmasking the identity of Michael Flynn, and we know that...

    The racism narrative overshadowed the much more important point reporter Weijia Jiang highlighted, which is the media's consistent defense of China and downplaying of American exceptionalism. The media establishment has become an absolute clown show, with CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang cast as the ringleader during Monday’s press briefing circus. Instead of asking President Donald Trump any relevant question as a means to better inform Americans amid the pandemic, Jiang opted for grandstanding with a question about as frivolous as the infamous “Is Chinese food racist?”“You’ve said many times that the U.S. is doing far better than any...
