    Full Title: Trump was accused of not bothering to get a translation of his European allies’ words. Fake news! ...It began, appropriately enough, with a tweet by BBC correspondent James Landale from Saturday's Group of Seven conference: "A short clip that sums up this G7 summit: look who has chosen not to hear a translation of his Italian host's speech #G6" ...His description was almost immediately attacked as fake news. Some pointed out a wire dangling from Trump's ear, and the White House press secretary said the president was simply wearing an earbud. ...Frank Luntz: Tweet saying @POTUS ignored Italian translation headphones:...

  • Devastating North Korean rockets labelled 'wobbly fakes' by experts

    Ballistic rockets were on display at Saturday's military parade at Pyongyang to mark the 105th birthday of the state's late founder Kim Il Sung. Almost 60 long-range and submarine-based missiles were on show as tensions mounted overJong-un's nuclear ambitions. The display initially caused international fears North Korea's nuke program was more advanced than previously thought. A senior analyst at the Korea Defence Network told AFP: “I suspect they all might be mock-ups aimed to impress the outside world.” The nose cone of one of the devastating rockets “wobbled quite noticeably” according to Chad O’Carroll, managing director of specialist service NK...

    The new series of Doctor Who will see the Time Lord joined by his first openly gay companion. Bill Potts's sexuality will be revealed pretty much straightaway in her second line of dialogue when the show returns to BBC One on 15 April. "It shouldn't be a big deal in the 21st Century. It's about time isn't it?" Pearl Mackie, who plays Bill, told the BBC. "That representation is important, especially on a mainstream show." She added: "It's important to say people are gay, people are black - there are also aliens in the world as well so watch out...

    Worship and Service of Creation It is easy to read what Paul says in Romans 1:25—“they exchanged the truth about God for the lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen,” in a purely negative light as describing the very basis of paganism and the worst form of idolatrous narcissism. However, we cannot deny the seductive beauty and power of such a creation. A new study has found that merely watching nature documentaries boosts people’s emotions of awe, contentedness, joy and amusement. By the same token, such activity reduces “feelings of nervousness,...

    BBC "News" ^ | March 21, 2017 | By Matt McGrath
    In the atmosphere, the seas and around the poles, climate change is reaching disturbing new levels across the Earth. That's according to a detailed global analysis from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). It says that 2016 was not only the warmest year on record, but it saw atmospheric CO2 rise to a new high, while Arctic sea ice recorded a new winter low. "This increase in global temperature is consistent with other changes occurring in the climate system," said WMO Secretary-General, Petteri Taalas. "Globally averaged sea-surface temperatures were also the warmest on record, global sea-levels continued to rise, and Arctic...

    The BBC is failing in its duty to be impartial over Brexit, a group of parliamentarians has claimed. In a letter to senior BBC figures, they said the broadcaster had characterised Britain as xenophobic and focused too much on regretful leave voters. The 76-strong group, made up mainly of Conservative MPs and including former cabinet ministers, warned the BBC’s director general, Tony Hall, and the incoming chair of its new governing body, David Clementi, that the broadcaster’s future might be in jeopardy if it was not seen as neutral.

    Google and Facebook will be working with the mainstream media to tell voters “what and who to trust”, including “memes, comment threads and news sites”, in the lead up to the French elections.

On an official blog post, Google claimed “CrowdTangle” had been set up “with a goal of helping the French electorate make sense of what and who to trust in their social...

    When Donald Trump won the US election on 8 November last year, Americans who voted for him rejoiced. Others were ambivalent. And still others expressed alarm. But some were so concerned that they began considering their options for leaving the US altogether. Following one of the most divisive US elections in recent history, following on the heels of the similarly divisive vote for Brexit in the UK, we asked if people were making plans to leave the country because of the uncertainty and political climate. Our question was met with hundreds of compelling, sometimes polarising and often worried responses. These...

    The British Broadcasting Corporation’s coverage of Sunday’s terror attack by an Arab truck driver in Jerusalem sparked controversy, after a headline by the news outlet emphasized the shooting of the terrorist and downplayed the attack itself. The headline in question described the terrorist as a “Driver of a lorry”, writing that he was shot after “allegedly ramming pedestrians”. “Driver of lorry shot in Jerusalem after allegedly ramming pedestrians, injuring at least 15, Israeli media report.” Four Israelis were killed in the purposeful attack in which a truck drove onto a promenade filled with Israeli soldiers, reversed slightly and ran them...

    The wives of Islamic State fighters ponder what to wear at a beheading and assess how sexy they look in suicide vests in a BBC satire which has sparked both anger and praise for tackling the fate of women who travel to Syria to join the militants. In a clip from the BBC's "Revolting" TV comedy show, entitled "Real Housewives of ISIS" which aired on Tuesday, one "wife" of a militant fighter in Syria says: "It's only three days to the beheading and I've got no idea what to wear."

    A leading US Republican says she fears for the future of her seven grandchildren with Donald Trump in the White House. Christine Todd Whitman, head of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under George W Bush, accused Mr Trump of ignoring compelling science. And she warned that his threat to scrap climate protection policies puts the world's future at risk. Trump supporters say rules on climate and energy are stifling business. But Ms Todd Whitman says the US must find ways of promoting business without unduly harming the planet.

    By Nahema Marchal | 2:58 pm, December 29, 2016 When the issue of “fake news” came to prominence at the end of this year’s election cycle, traditional media outlets were the firsts to engage in relentless finger-pointing. Journalists everywhere deplored the spread of misleading, lazily reported and, in some cases, totally fabricated stories that had been facilitated by social media. That’d be ignoring — of course — that in a competitive media climate where virality and accuracy go head-to-head, editors will often go for a catchier headline, at the expense of factual accuracy. And as one writer at HEqual noted,...
