    A former officer with the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency was arrested over the weekend for allegedly trying to spy on the United States for China, the Justice Department said on Monday. The department said the suspect is accused of trying to transmit national defense information to China and with receiving “hundreds of thousands of dollars” while acting illegally as an agent for the Chinese government. He was taken into custody while he was on his way to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport ...

    Seattle got almost the same amount of snow it gets in a year in one day, leaving officials scrambling to get people off the streets and the governor declaring a state of emergency. **SNIP** Seattle-Tacoma International Airport had 6.4 inches of snow Friday, according to the National Weather Service. It's the second most snow recorded in the area in a day for the past 20 years - and more is still to come. It's only the fourth time the area has seen six inches of snow since 1991. Seattle averages 6.8 inches of snow over the course of an entire...

    If you’re desperate for a smile while stuck in Seattle-area traffic, just look toward the billboards where Washington state has launched a $4.4 million marketing campaign that promotes the new Highway 99 tunnel as resembling a happy face. The messages remind motorists this four-lane tunnel goes completely under downtown, from the stadiums to the Space Needle. Television ads depict people performing a swooping “under” gesture — for instance, while ordering a chicken sandwich with meat beneath the lettuce. Viewers are encouraged to check The shape resembles the trademark smile of Amazon, which dominates several blocks near the tunnel’s north...
  • After 7 overdoses in North Seattle on Thursday, health officials urge safer drug use

    Health officials are advising people who use drugs to have naloxone on hand, which can be obtained at needle exchanges and other locations. They’re also advising people who are going to use drugs not to do so alone and to start with small amounts. Those who suspect someone has had an overdose should call 911 right away and administer naloxone, according to Public Health. The law protects people who overdose and those who call 911 from drug-possession charges. Naloxone is not harmful if given to someone who is not experiencing an overdose, so even when in doubt, bystanders should administer...

    Democrat Senator Kamala Harris made the rounds on ABC Tuesday promoting her new memoir and aiding the media in bashing President Trump for addressing the nation tonight about the need for a southern border wall. Though she did not make a formal announcement if she was going to run for president in 2020, the liberal hosts at The View treated her as if she were already a candidate, comparing her to Hillary Clinton and pleading with her to stop President Trump. Joy Behar also demanded the networks delay and fact-check Trump like CNN does, in tonight's border address. Immediately when...
  • Carl Bernstein suggests media should edit White House pressers before airing them

    Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein said cable news networks should stop broadcasting White House press conferences and briefings in their entirety because they have become "propagandist exercises." "I don't think we should be taking them live all the time and just pasting them up on the air because they're basically propagandist exercises because they are overwhelmed by his dishonesty and lying," Bernstein said during a segment of CNN's "Reliable Sources" on Sunday, referring to President Trump. "Maybe we should be there, edit, decide as reporters what is news, and after the press conference or briefing is over then go with that...

    Perhaps Don Lemon might want to get an editor himself after this argument. Chris Cuomo might even agree, as the look on his face speaks volumes. Lemon wants networks to tape-delay Trump’s speech so they can edit it to remove “propaganda” (via Twitchy): UNBELIEVABLE: Don Lemon suggests that Trump's speech be delayed so it can be edited and kept from Americans.Chris Cuomo (the voice of reason) corrects him and says wanting a border wall isn't immoral or wrong.Cuomo giving Lemon a "you've lost your mind" stare is CLASSIC.— Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) January 8, 2019 Give Cuomo credit for...

    This is a video showing how the mainstream networks, NBC, in this case- actually chroma key, or "green-screen" Hillary's eyes when she has a Parkinson's-related eye-crossing episode due to her maintenance drugs. They actually edit the video to make her seem "normal-ish." This is a fairly slipshod job and terribly obvious.

    snip... The video was changed to make it look as if Trump was sticking his tongue out languidly between sentences. In addition, the colors in the video look more saturated, leading the president’s skin and hair to appear more orange. During the speech, Trump said, “Hopefully, we can rise above partisan politics in order to support national security,” before briefly licking his lips and continuing to speak. In the video broadcast on Q13, it appears that Trump lets his tongue hang out, resting it on his lower lip for an unusually long time. snip...

    Editorial standards? WHAT editorial standards? If you throw an icky orange color on a completely Manufactured Monster, Fox affiliate Q13 Television in Seattle, will see that it sticks. An orange face was originally created for Donald Trump by smart aleck showman Glenn Beck on April 29, 2016. Almost three years later, Q13 recycled it to ridicule President Trump on the night of his Humanitarian and Security Crisis at the Southern Border address to the nation. No Cheetos necessary this time out when a distorted face of the president, complete with a large, exaggerated lolling tongue would do.

    The Seattle Times reports a staffer at local Fox affiliate Q13 has been fired after the station aired a doctored (and insulting) video of President Donald TrumpÂ’s first primetime speech from the Oval Office on Tuesday. Local radio host Todd Herman was sent a video from a listener. As the Times reported, "The video was changed to make it look as if Trump was sticking his tongue out languidly between sentences.

    A news station in Seattle appeared to confirm that a video editor intentionally doctored a video of President Donald Trump speaking to the nation. Trump addressed America on Jan. 8 from the Oval Office. The speech was broadcast on a number of news stations. A side-by-side comparison of Trump’s speech and the footage broadcast by Q13 that night appears to show that the station manipulated the footage. In addition to showing Trump licking his lips multiple times, the skin color of the president also appears distorted. Q13 appeared to admit that the footage was doctored, telling KTTH that the video...

    A Q13 editor was fired Thursday, after it was revealed that they had doctored a clip of President Trump’s Tuesday Oval Office address. A listener to my program sent me a video that appears to show a deceptively edited video of President Trump’s speech from the Oval Office. We performed a side-by-side comparison of the video from our listener, apparently taken by a smart phone recording of Q13, to the raw video of Trump’s speech from CNN. That comparison revealed the Q13 video creating a loop of the President licking his lips — making it seem bizarre and unbalanced —...

    Fox affiliate Q13 in Seattle fired a staffer who the station says doctored a video of President Trump delivering an address from the Oval Office on Tuesday night. The video shown on the station's newscast made it appear as if Trump was sticking his tongue out while delivering a speech on the government shutdown. The video was also manipulated to make the president's skin and hair appear more orange. “This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the president in a negative light,” said Q13 news director Erica Hill in an emailed...
  • A new Seattle housing law forbids landlords from checking tenants’ criminal history [tr]

    With slews of tent encampments in a fast-growing city flush with tech-sector cash, it’s tough questioning Seattle’s serious problem with homelessness and affordable housing. But an unprecedented new city law — forbidding landlords from checking into potential renters’ criminal past — is very much in dispute and setting up a closely-watched court battle. Landlords argue their free speech, property rights and possibly their safety is being jeopardized by a law that forces them to close their eyes to relevant public information about possible tenants. They’re backed by landlord groups and background screeners who call the ordinance a perilous precedent. The...

    Seattle does not want to become San Francisco, a fate that has come to refer exclusively to the city’s worst traits: its $5,000-a-month rents, its homeless encampments and the ever-present dissonance between those two. As San Francisco’s troubles have grown more vivid, so too has its status as other cities’ worst nightmare. In Portland, Oakland and Sacramento, residents and pundits have voiced dread at becoming The Next San Francisco, where the middle class is disappearing. San Francisco is worried, too — about becoming Manhattan. That fear has lurked for decades behind every new proposed skyscraper. And now cranes are erecting...

    Rattled outdoor furniture, frightened cats. We heard reports from several readers about the mysterious booms and flashes of light early this morning over Puget Sound: "I was watching late night TV when at exactly 2:42 p.m. I saw the sky light up like a nuclear bomb had exploded. The entire sky and my whole yard glowed a luminous red color. I went outside to investigate and could hear a loud rumbling noise."
