    The photograph of RBG that the New York Times used in their report yesterday about RBG returning to the Supreme Court was actually taken last November. I've still seen no current photo. Too sick to have a picture taken of her? Where is she, actually?

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says amazon’s salaries of $150,000 a year for 25,000 new jobs in New York City constitute “scraps” and are not “dignified.” Meanwhile, she only pays her own interns $15 an hour. In November 2018, CNBC reported:Amazon will pay HQ2 employees an average of $150,000On February 16, explaining why she opposed amazon creating 25,000 new jobs in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said:“We need to create dignified jobs in New York City”and“We do not have to settle for scraps in the greatest city in the world”I wonder how high those amazon salaries would have to be in order for Ocasio-Cortez...

    Bill de Blasio: The Path Amazon Rejected It could have answered the concerns of citizens. Instead it bolted. By Bill de Blasio Mr. de Blasio is mayor of New York City. Feb. 16, 2019 The first word I had that Amazon was about to scrap an agreement to bring 25,000 new jobs to New York City came an hour before it broke in the news on Thursday. The call was brief and there was little explanation for the companys reversal. Just days before, I had counseled a senior Amazon executive about how they could win over some of their critics....

    Patrick Caddell, the political pollster who helped send an obscure peanut farmer named Jimmy Carter to the White House, later became disillusioned with fellow Democrats and finally veered to advise supporters of Donald J. Trump, died on Saturday in Charleston, S.C. He was 68. His death, from complications of a stroke, was confirmed by a colleague, Prof. Kendra Stewart of the College of Charleston. While Mr. Caddell was considered instrumental in Mr. Carters victory, he also shared the blame for limiting him to a single term. He helped persuade the president to deliver a speech that was intended to inspirit...

    Time to Panic The planet is getting warmer in catastrophic ways. And fear may be the only thing that saves us. By David Wallace-Wells Mr. Wallace-Wells is the author of the forthcoming The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming. Feb. 16, 2019 The age of climate panic is here. Last summer, a heat wave baked the entire Northern Hemisphere, killing dozens from Quebec to Japan. Some of the most destructive wildfires in California history turned more than a million acres to ash, along the way melting the tires and the sneakers of those trying to escape the flames. Pacific hurricanes forced...

    Just when you thought it was safe to share your favorite childhood classics with your kids, the New York Times goes and ruins it with an article called "The Gay History of America's Classic Children's Books," by Jesse Green.From Frog and Toad to Goodnight Moon, we are told that our beloved stories are awash in "a secret language of queer compassion." I'm always bemused when people claim that beloved fictional characters are gay. A few months ago it was "Sesame Street's" Ernie and Bert, whose closet door was abruptly slammed shut by their creator, Frank Oz, after he got...

    Meredith Watson, who has also accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault, said she was also raped by a Duke basketball player in 1999 that she didn't identify, according to USA Today. Monday, the [New York] Times reported Watson had told friends in the past that she was raped by Corey Maggette and that [Duke university] officials did not pursue the claim despite Watson allegedly reporting the incident to a dean at the university. Maggette, a Los Angeles Clippers analyst for Fox Sports West, did not appear in an originally planned broadcast on Monday. It was announced on...

    If you missed it Saturday, read this to see just how far her advisors went in BSing about the infamous line on the GND fact sheet about “economic security” for those who are “unwilling to work.” It takes stones to go on the other party’s favorite cable news network and insist to their faces that that document was a fabrication rather than something that was posted on Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional website.And it takes elephant-sized stones to amplify that lie to your three million Twitter followers, which is what AOC herself did when she retweeted the clip without comment.WaPo can’t muster...

    Earlier today I wrote about the Washington Posts summary of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez efforts to walk back an embarrassing FAQ which her office used as part of the rollout for the Green New Deal. As bad as the Post story was in some ways, at least it managed to convey some of the embarrassing twists and turns this story has taken over the past four days. The NY Times published a summary today which omits all the troubling details and manages to work in the standard Republicans pounce formula used routinely by the media for any story that embarrasses a Democrat....

    A long forgotten video clip from ABC's "The View" resurfaced on Wednesday that showed co-host Joy Behar trying to explain a Halloween costume from when she was younger. The clip was shared by The Wrap media editor Jon Levine. Behar was seen discussing a New York Times op-ed about the resurgence of curly hair during the show in 2016. Behar showed her colleagues and the audience a picture of herself with curly hair when she was 29 years old. The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. Raven-Symon, a former co-host, asked, "Joy, are you black?"

    Federal prosecutors are reviewing Mr. Bezos claim that he has been extorted, according to two people briefed on the matter who were not authorized to discuss it publicly. And those prosecutors have planned a meeting with Mr. Bezos representatives, one of those people said. If American Media is found to have broken a law any law it would be in violation of a [previous] deal with federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York.

    In her 25 years of marriage to Jeff Bezos, MacKenzie Bezos has been a loyal ambassador for Amazon, the company that made her and her husband the richest couple in the world. She was an integral part of its origin story, driving to Seattle in 1994 while Mr. Bezos sat in the passenger seat, working on the nascent companys business plan. She was Amazons first accountant and was involved in its transformation from a small online bookseller to the e-commerce behemoth it is today, the second company in American history to be valued at over a trillion dollars. Ms. Bezos,...

Ralph Northam (D) and Attorney General Mark Herring (D) and allegations of sexual assault against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D). He called the Fairfax case the "most serious," but that we should not rush to conclusions without investigating first. "Men turn out to be a problem. There's a lot of male bad behavior.

    The media is dying. Read about it in the media. Facebook is pumping $300 million into the media. And thats after the Google News Initiative shoved $300 million into fighting fake news and helping struggling media outlets like the New York Times. These arent investments. Theyre charitable donations by Big Data to Big Brother. Take Jeff Bezos taking $250 million, a little more than the $215 million he makes a day, and using it to buy the Washington Post, not because its a good business opportunity, but a good political one. The media isnt worth investing in. TV and cable...

    ....As journalists, were supposed to sort through press releases, talking points and propaganda, using them only to the extent they enlighten us as to what special interests want to believe: Is it true? Is it the whole story? Who wants you to think it and why? Are they trying to deflect attention from other facts or a more important story? Finding these answers is a basic part of our job. Instead, were willing repositories for all kinds of narratives. We report as if news press releases from the government, corporations, special interests or nonprofits (that are often undisclosed...

    RICHMOND, Va. The political tumult in Virginia widened Thursday as the State Senates top Republican faced an onslaught of questions about racist photographs and slurs in a college yearbook that he helped oversee, transforming the Capitols nearly week-old crisis into a bipartisan reckoning over personal conduct. The senator, Thomas K. Norment Jr., who is the majority leader, was the managing editor of the 1968 Virginia Military Institute yearbook, which included images of students in blackface.

Unfortunately, they did not heed his request, including his own colleagues atPolitico, which continued with worship services at the Church of Beto even after his U.S. Senate election loss in Texas. Among those periodicals continuing the plethora of Beto paeans is the New York Times.On February 6, the Times published a profile by Matt Flegenheimer of Beto's years in New York City in which he accomplished...stand by...basically nothing.

    Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson acknowledged Thursday that some parts of her new book were not properly cited after multiple individuals raised claims that she lifted material. In a statement to The Washington Post, Abramson said certain footnotes in her book, "Merchants of Truth," don't match up correctly with the material in the book, and that certain passages should have been cited as direct quotations. "I was up all night going through my book because I take these claims of plagiarism so seriously," Abramson said in the statement to The Post. "In writing 'Merchants of Truth,' I...

    Jill Abramson, the former New York Times editor who carries a little plastic Obama doll in her purse for comfort, has written quite a book, trying to describe the news industry the same way the great David Halberstam once did in "The Powers That Be" in the 1970s. She examines four news outfits, plus Facebook, in an attempt to replicate Halberstam's tome about how the news industry evolved in her new book, titled: "Merchants of Truth." Her conclusion? Legacy media rules. Upstart media has no value. After a big buildup from this, she's got a problem: She's being accused of plagiarism. Here's the New York Times's generally positive review from...
