    Canadian mass media and information company Thomson Reuters has announced a crypto asset data partnership with cryptocurrency tracking resource CryptoCompare, according to a July 31 press release. As the press release explains, CryptoCompare will now provide order book and trade data on 50 cryptocurrencies for Reuters’ financial desktop platform Eikon, which is aimed at institutional investors. Sam Chadwick, the director of strategy in innovation and blockchain at Reuters, noted in the press release that the “decline in the price of many of the leading cryptocurrencies during 2018” has not lessened the “increasing demand from our customers for pricing coverage of...

    An editor at the international news agency Reuters apologized late Thursday night after saying to President Trump on Twitter that “blood is on your hands” shortly after a deadly mass shooting at an Annapolis newspaper that left five people dead. In a Thursday afternoon tweet that has since been deleted, global and breaking news editor Rob Cox wrote, "This is what happens when @realDonaldTrump calls journalists the enemy of the people. Blood is on your hands, Mr. President. Save your thoughts and prayers for your empty soul." SNIP Cox deleted the tweet after considerable backlash and later apologized for not...

    Reality never campaigns for Democrats.However, judging from the total silence over Monday's Reuters/Ipsos generic ballot poll, the nation's media certainly does. How else could an objective observer explain an apparent decision by every single mainstream outlet to ignore such a clear opportunity for website traffic?On Monday at 2:49 p.m., Thomson Reuters' Polling Editor Chris Kahn tweeted this shocker: the Democratic Party has completely lost the double-digit edge it held just weeks ago: Say good-bye to the D-advantage in the generic ballot. Our latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that registered voters as likely to support Republicans as Democrats. @ReutersPolitics https://t.co/0ZIVVs6Zqc pic.twitter.com/rLIHL7jPRl—...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican leaders in the U.S. Congress are moving forward with a plan to vote before the 2018 midterm elections on a bill to make permanent the temporary individual tax cuts in their recent tax overhaul. It is not yet clear, however, if the plan would pick up support from Democrats, whose votes would be needed to pass legislation in the Senate. The Republican tax law, approved in December without Democratic support, permanently cut the top corporate rate to 21 percent from 35 percent and created a permanent deduction for pass-through businesses. It created lower rates and new...

    Reuters ^ | April 4, 2018 | by James Oliphant, Caren Bohan
    Before last month’s special congressional election in Pennsylvania, U.S. President Donald Trump, who ridiculed his rivals in the 2016 election as “Liddle Marco,” “Lyin’ Ted,” and “Crooked Hillary,” tried it again, tagging Democratic candidate Conor Lamb as “Lamb the Sham.” This time, the tactic failed. But it illustrated a penchant for often brutally effective nicknames that Democrats are bracing for Trump to employ when he campaigns for Republicans in November’s congressional elections. All 435 members of the House and a third of the 100-member Senate will be up for grabs. A Democratic takeover of one or both chambers could derail...

    When five Myanmar journalists were sentenced to decadelong prison terms for reporting the alleged existence of a military-run chemical weapons factory in Myanmar a few years ago, Aung San Suu Kyi — then an opposition lawmaker — condemned the harsh punishments as “very excessive.” The journalists, from the now-defunct Unity publication, had been convicted for violating the nation’s Official Secrets Act — the same colonial-era law now being leveled against a pair of Reuters reporters who are facing a staggering 14 years behind bars each. […] Three and a half years on, the thinking of Suu Kyi, who now heads...

    The 2018 Winter Olympics were in full swing and Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and head of their Propaganda and Agitation Department, had bizarrely become a liberal media darling. Despite the fact her job entailed censorship and glorifying public executions, numerous outlets had touted her for “stealing the show,” winning “diplomatic gold,” being the “Ivanka Trump of North Korea,” and hyping the extremely creepy North Korean cheerleading corp. CNN, who has a history of climbing into bed with murderous regimes (Iraq and Saddam Hussein) to stay relevant, was one of the more notable...

    RUSH: Okay. The first thing you have to know is that the Drive-By Media is trying to shift your attention away from tonight’s State of the Union Address, because they know it’s going to be a grand-slam home run. The Democrats would love to be able to be giving a State of the Union speech with the state of the union the way it is right now. But they can’t, and they never will be because they don’t support policies and getting out of the way, permitting things like what are happening in our economy now and throughout the country...

The House Intelligence Committee released their cherry-picked examples of “Russian Facebook ads” in November. [....] The media didn’t let facts get in the way of fueling the collusion narrative, either. After receiving their marching orders from CNN, the media swung into action: This includes Vanity Fair, Natasha Bertrand at Business Insider, The Daily Mail, Fortune, The Hill, Reuters, and CNBC. Far-left sites like the Daily Kos, Vox, Salon, and Talking Points Memo joined the fray to falsely characterize all the ads as targeting swing...

    (Reuters) - Senior FBI officials who helped probe Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign told a colleague that Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had to win the race to the White House, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. Peter Strzok, a senior FBI agent, said Clinton “just has to win” in a text sent to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, the Times reported. The messages showed concern from Strzok and Page that a Trump presidency could politicize the FBI, the report said, citing texts turned over to Congress and obtained by the newspaper. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating...

    Axios ^ | 12/8/2017 | Shane Savitsky
    A September 2016 email sent to senior Trump campaign officials directed them to documents that had already been publicly released by WikiLeaks, per The Washington Post. Initial reporting on the email this morning from CNN said the email was sent on September 4 — WaPo reports that it was actually September 14 — and left it an open question whether the documents had been previously released. Why it matters: WaPo's reporting massively changes the significance of this story, indicating that the sender — a still unknown "Michael J. Erickson" — might have just been trying to alert Trump campaign officials...

    On Monday’s daily White House briefing, journalists went into overdrive, pushing for Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders to talk about gun control and what President Trump was planning on doing policy-wise after Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas. As soon as Huckabee-Sanders finished with an emotional statement commenting on the shooting, reporters immediately jumped in with questions about what the President’s thoughts were on gun control: JEFF MASON [REUTERS]: Sarah, many times when these horrible massacres occur, it leads to questions about gun control. Has this particular massacre made the president think anything more about pursuing tighter gun laws such as...

    Reuters ^ | September 28, 2017 | by Stephen J. Adler
    Shortly after Donald J. Trump became U.S. president last January, I wrote a memo to the Reuters staff providing guidance on how to cover the new Administration. The gist was that we should proceed as we would with any leader in the world, whether that leader admired journalists or viewed them as the enemy. That meant trying not to take sides or to make ourselves the story but rather to work dispassionately on behalf of Reuters users, who would need honest, carefully sourced, vigorous reporting on what this presidency meant for them. Today, we are taking this approach even further...
