    Now’s your time to take to the skies. Alaska Airlines will hire 3,000 people this year, the Seattle-based airline said in a blog post on Monday. Approximately three-quarters of the new jobs will be based in Washington state. Shortly after hiring its 10,000th employee in Washington, Alaska plans to rapidly expand its frontline positions. For those looking to apply, the new openings will include positions as maintenance technicians, airport operations, customer service representatives, cargo specialists, flight attendants and pilots. Future employees will be hired by both Alaska and Horizon airlines. The positions will be listed online and, for many, no...

    As we reported just the other day, Tesla quietly hiked rates for Supercharging in most states. Keep in mind that this impacts all Tesla Model 3 owners, as well as owners of new Tesla Model S and X vehicles who purchased their vehicles without utilizing a referral code. Thanks to hardcore EV fans like Teslanomics’ Ben Sullins, we have an update on how states were affected by the new rate hike, as well as the actual percentage of increase. As we explained the other day, states like Illinois have seen over a 60 percent increase, from .15/kWh to .25/kWh. States...

    Forget "rolling coal." A new trend called "ICE-ing," in which pickup truck owners purposefully block electric vehicle charging stations, appears to be gaining ground around the country. The practice, whose name is derived from "internal combustion engine," was observed over the holidays at a Sheetz gas station in Hickory, N.C. Reddit user Leicina shared a photo on Dec. 23, 2018, of three large pickups blocking access to Tesla Inc. charging stations. The drivers apparently chanted "----Tesla." "I've never had a supercharging experience like this one," wrote Leicina, who owns a Tesla Model 3. "These trucks blocked all the chargers, chanted...

    Along the way, she met Tony Gonzalez, a former tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, with whom she had a son, 17-year-old Nikko. She also became engaged to “NYPD Blue” actor Henry Simmons. Then she met Whitesell, the executive chairman of media powerhouse talent agency William Morris Endeavor (WME). “He was a real step up in the world from Tony,” said the “Extra” source. Whitesell and Sanchez dated for two years before marrying and conceiving their first child in 2005. That same year Sanchez was the original presenter on the Fox show “So You Think You Can Dance.” More...

    President Trump is working around the clock during the government shutdown trying to negotiate with Pelosi and Schumer to secure border wall funding. The Democrats however, are partying at a beach resort in Puerto Rico on day 22 of the government shutdown. The Democrats don’t care about the 800,000 federal workers who are currently not receiving a paycheck. Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was spotted hanging out with a bikini-clad “colleague” on the beach in Puerto Rico three weeks into the shutdown without a care in the world. The Hispanic Caucus of liberal Democrats is holding their retreat at a posh...

    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...

    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.

    Seattle Times ^ | 11JAN18 | By Christine Clarridge
    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.

    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...

    Facebook is investigating News for Democracy, an organization backed by liberal megadonor Reid Hoffman, over misleading news pages the group operated prior to the 2018 midterm elections, the social network said Monday. News for Democracy created several active Facebook pages that may have broken the social network’s advertising policies and rules against misleading users during the race, The Washington Post reported. **SNIP** Mr. Hoffman, a LinkedIn co-founder and Microsoft board member, did not return requests for comment, The Post reported. Dmitri Mehlhorn, his top political adviser and a News for Democracy, declined to comment, the report said.
