    During a softball interview on CNN Tuesday afternoon, Steven Goldstein, director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect bashed and lambasted President Donald Trump for his statement this morning denouncing bigotry, espcially anti-Semitism, and pinned recent Jew hatred on Trump's campaign, and now, administration. Beforehand, a panel on the network's Inside Politics discussed Trump's campaign and presidency's possible affect on hate crimes against Jews. On CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin Goldstein said, "Our president is creating an incubator of hatred. When you don't respond to anti-Semitism as well as Islamophobia and racism in a real time, when you wait days and sometimes week to respond to attacks, you are sending a signal to the haters...

    Of course, Donald Trump visiting the African American History Museum in Washington D.C. is a problem for journalists. April Ryan on Tuesday wondered what was the point of the President’s visit, considering he thinks that “white America” built the country. ABC reporter Cecilia Vega also demanded to know if Trump will show forgiveness to illegals.  But first, Ryan of American Urban Radio, demanded, “What did the President gain from his tour today? You talked about where he visited, the exhibits that he visited. Did he also visit slavery?” Lest her point be unclear, she added, “The reason why I'm asking this...

    Milo Yiannopoulos, the incendiary writer and commentator who helped make Breitbart News a leading organ of the “alt-right,” resigned from the news organization Tuesday after a video of him endorsing pedophilia resurfaced online over the weekend. Yiannopoulos — known simply as MILO in Breitbart’s own coverage of him — has been a flame-throwing provocateur whose writing has offended women, Muslims, blacks and gay people ever since former Breitbart executive chairman Stephen K. Bannon hired him as a senior editor in 2014.

    The president’s attack on “fake news” are especially ironic, Scarborough said, because Trump and his closest advisors have repeatedly lied about inauguration crowds, crime rate statistics and nonexistent terrorist attacks. “As Jesus said, don’t throw stones if you live in glass houses,” Scarborough said. “This man lives in the biggest glass house there is when it comes to a disconnection from truth. So to attack the media and then say they’re enemies of the people is beyond the pale.”

    President Trump is once again showing he is no longer going to put up with the out-of-control left-wing media bias. And this weekend in Florida, the president once again took direct aim at these corrupt news organizations. “The dishonest media, which has published one false story after another with no sources, even though they pretend they have them, they make them up in many cases,” Trump said over the weekend. “And they've been calling us wrong now for two years. They don't get it, but they're starting to get it, I can tell you that. They've become a big part...

During the interview, Assange discussed the idea of “fake news” and how WikiLeaks’ refusal to editorialize their content and rather provide pure data to the public has allowed them to publish facts without bias. “What is special about WikiLeaks is that it’s not just another damn story,” said Assange, “it’s not just another damn journalist putting...

    The inevitable conflict between the mainstream media and Donald Trump has come to boil just four weeks into his presidency. The media are beside themselves that someone would castigate them at every opportunity and use hyperbole such as “enemy of the American people” and purveyors of “very fake news” to get under their skin, as their narcissism and sense of self-importance knows no bounds. They fail to understand why they are held in such disregard -- polling has revealed only 32% of Americans trust the media (down from 55% in 2000) and why so many cheer Trump’s visceral attacks.

Trump said that "any negative poll is fake news," but analysts believe he does care about the results. Trump's first month in the Oval Office can only be described as bumpy.

    West Palm Beach (CNN)President Donald Trump has made visiting his Florida golf courses a near every-weekend habit in the first month of his administration, and his aides are trying to obscure whether Trump is actually golfing during the visits.One possible reason: Trump was a frequent and vocal critic of President Barack Obama's golf habit, regularly slamming the former president for playing golf with many pressing issues before the country. Trump even suggested during a 2016 event in Virginia, in a knock on Obama, that if elected he was "not going to have time to go play golf."

In September 2016, NASA released a curious video showing what seems to be an alien spaceship fueling near the sun.

    Donald Trump may put all of the USA's illegal immigrants in ICE's crosshairs with two new orders that could allow for anyone to be deported, regardless of whether they have committed a crime in the US. The first memo, which says all illegals are subject to deportation, is concerned with internal immigration control. It orders ICE agents to disregard President Obama's order to focus on criminal immigrants and recent arrivals. Instead, the order says, they should switch their focus and prioritize migrants who have been charged with crimes but not yet convicted. It also broadens the scope of ICE powers...

    Reporters have done it again. The latest media misfire on the Trump administration involves Ibtihaj Muhammad, a New Jersey native who made headlines last year when she became the first female Muslim-American to win an Olympic medal for the United States. Muhammad, a lifelong American citizen, claimed in an interview last week that she was detained “just a few weeks ago” by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents. She said she was held for two hours without explanation. Her remarks on Feb. 7 earned her an entire news cycle, as several journalists ran with reports suggesting, and alleging outright, that...

    It sure sounds like CBS is getting defensive over Donald Trump’s attack on “fake news.” A new ad for CBS This Morning on Monday featured a blazing graphic declaring the show “REAL NEWS.” Yet, the network has a history of fawning over Barack Obama and hammering Trump. On February 2, CBS This Morning reporter Omar Villafranca lamented the “dream denied” for illegals after the “somber” 2016 election. Last week, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley responded to Trump’s attack on the “fake news media” by lecturing that “the common denominator of Mr. Trump’s woes is the Constitution.”

    President Trump is getting quite a bit of blow back for saying the fake news media is the enemy of the American people. And most of the blow back is coming from the fake news media."The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!" he tweeted. As you might imagine, the folks with blemish-free skin and perfectly coiffed hair accused the president of being some sort of tin pot dictator -- trying to silence and intimidate the press.Former Washington Post reporter described the president's tweet using words like "authoritarian" and "dangerous" and...

    MOSCOW — A dossier on Donald Trump's psychological makeup is being prepared for Russian President Vladimir Putin. Among its preliminary conclusions is that the new American leader is a risk-taker who can be naďve, according to a senior Kremlin adviser. Trump "doesn't understand fully who is Mr. Putin — he is a tough guy," former Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Fedorov told NBC News. The file is being compiled by retired diplomats and some of Putin's staff, he added. The attempt to get inside the U.S. president's mind is aimed at helping Putin plan for his first meeting with America's new...

    Rev. Franklin Graham said President Donald Trump is correct about the news media today, that they lie and create "fake news," and added that the media should do what the Bible instructs, "You shall not circulate a false report" (Exodus 23:1). "President Donald J. Trump has been saying what we all know—that the news media has been lying," said Rev. Graham in a Feb. 19 post on Facebook. "In today’s terminology, creating fake news." "Fake news is nothing new," he said. "It was going on in the Bible. When Jesus died on the cross for our sins and was placed...

    Sen. John McCain slammed President Donald Trump's attacks on the media this week by noting dictators "get started by suppressing free press." It was a startling observation from a sitting member of Congress against the President of the United States, especially considering McCain is a member of Trump's party. "I hate the press," the Arizona Republican sarcastically told NBC News' Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press." "I hate you especially. But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It's vital."

    One of the course designers, Doreen Bradley, director of learning programs and initiatives at the U-M Library, says misinformation, disinformation, half-truths and propaganda have always been around, but are these days so readily sharable that students encounter a much greater volume than ever before. Students taking the class will: •Learn how to find trusted sources of statistics. •Be challenged to confront their own biases. •Consider how their opinions, and the opinions of others, can affect the interpretation of news items. •Practice dissecting a news graph in order to understand the message that graph is trying to convey. •Assess how their...
