  • Obama: Reports of voter fraud are 'fake news'

    The Hill ^ | January 18, 2017
    President Obama on Wednesday talked about the importance of voting rights, dismissing the idea of large-scale voter fraud as "fake news."   "This whole notion of voting fraud — this is something that has constantly been disproved," Obama said during the final press conference of his presidency. "This is fake news — the notion that there are a whole bunch of people out there who are going out there and are not eligible to vote and want to vote."   Instead, Obama said, the country has the opposite problem: There are a lot of people in the country who are...

    CNN taps Valerie Jarrett's daughter to cover Trump DOJ © Greg Nash CNN has tapped the daughter of senior adviser to President Obama to cover the Trump Justice Department despite having little experience in journalism, according to a press release from the network. The New York Post reports that Laura Jarrett, daughter of Valerie Jarrett, was "quietly hired" by CNN in September to work as a reporter in Washington. No formal announcement by the network from that time can be found announcing the hire. According to her CNN bio page, the Harvard-educated Laura Jarrett has "worked as a litigation attorney...

    Fake news outlet CNN’s top executive, Jeff Zucker, is threatening the incoming president of the United States Donald J. Trump. “It’s just unfortunate that the most powerful person in the world is trying to delegitimize journalism and an organization that plays such a vital role in our democracy,” Zucker, CNN’s president, said in an interview with NY Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman, when asked about how Trump denounced CNN as “fake news” at his press conference last week in New York City....-snip- ...

    Is the Valparaiso Family YMCA simply exercising its right to appease as many members as possible, or is the new Donald Trump-led America already flexing its muscles? Last Friday night, the YMCA stopped airing CNN on its televisions in the facility's wellness and exercise area. Why would it do so after all these years of airing CNN and other national news channels? Complaints from some Y members about alleged "fake news" on CNN, I'm told. "This did happen but, when we found out at the leadership level, it was changed back," explained Debra Koeppen, the YMCA's chief development officer. Last...

    Don't mess with CNN. That's the unvarnished version of a message that the network's president, Jeff Zucker, delivered to President-elect Donald Trump in an interview published on Thursday by New York magazine. "One of the things I think this administration hasn’t figured out yet is that there’s only one television network that is seen in Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran and Damascus — and that’s CNN," Zucker said. "The perception of Donald Trump in capitals around the world is shaped, in many ways, by CNN. Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake."

Nobody in the current administration knows whether anyone in the next has read any of it.

    Donald Trump enters the White House on Friday just as he entered the race for president: defiant, unfiltered, unbound by tradition and utterly confident in his chosen course. In the 10 weeks since his surprise election as the nation’s 45th president, Trump has violated decades of established diplomatic protocol, sent shockwaves through business boardrooms, tested long-standing ethics rules and continued his combative style of replying to any slight with a personal attack — on Twitter and in person. Past presidents have described walking into the Oval Office for the first time as a humbling experience, one that in an instant...

Officials played down any link between the operation and NATO concerns over Russia, but the deployment coincides with the U.S. sending several thousand troops to Poland to beef up its Eastern European allies worried about Moscow's assertiveness. Marines from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina landed a little after 10 am CET (0900 GMT) at a snow-covered Vaernes airport near Trondheim,...

It is the first time in the modern era of global warming data that temperatures have blown past the previous record three years in a row. The findings come two days before the inauguration of a U.S. president who has called global warming a Chinese plot and vowed to roll back his predecessor’s efforts to cut emissions of heat-trapping gases.

He was hearing “more and more” about evidence of rigging, he added, leaving the details to his supporters’ imagination.

But that didn’t stop BuzzFeed from warning that what it called Fake News was beating real news. And that’s probably true.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said the U.S. president-elect's view that NATO was obsolete and his criticism that European allied members aren't paying their fair share had "caused astonishment." Trump also said Britain's decision to leave the 28-nation European Union would "end up being a great thing," and he predicted that other countries would also leave.

    The outgoing CIA director admonished the president-elect for ‘talking and tweeting’ without fully understanding Russia’s threat to national security “I think he has to be mindful that he does not have a full appreciation and understanding of what the implications are of going down that road.” Brennan also said he took “great umbrage” at Trump’s suggestion that agencies biased against him were behaving as if the US were “Nazi Germany”.

    Remember, back in the day, when newly elected presidents enjoyed a honeymoon? Donald Trump isn’t getting one. His adversaries are in combat mode, as if the campaign never ended. Demonstrations are planned. Money is pouring into the coffers of liberal groups. Activists are calling for an ongoing “resistance” movement. Mr. Trump is getting a taste of his own medicine because he, too, is behaving as if the campaign never ended. For weeks, he has continued to lob provocative tweets about his critics and the media, derided people who supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, reveled in his election victory and took a victory...

    Social media giant Facebook announced on Sunday that it would introduce new measures to combat fake news in Germany, as Europe’s largest economy and most populous nation enters an election year. “It’s important to us that the reports and news posted on Facebook are reliable,” a blog post on the Silicon Valley firm’s German website read. German politicians have warned that populist parties and foreign nations could use fake news to try and influence parliamentary elections slated for September or October. Facebook’s new German initiative targets “unambiguously wrong reports” being shared on the social media platform. …

    THE WASHINGTON COMPOST ^ | 2017 JANUARY 15 | ROBERT COSTA, THE WASHINGTON COMPOST
    President-elect Donald Trump said in a weekend interview that he is nearing completion of a plan to replace President Obama’s signature health-care law with the goal of “insurance for everybody,” while also vowing to force drug companies to negotiate directly with the government on prices in Medicare and Medicaid. Trump declined to reveal specifics in the telephone interview late Saturday with The Washington Post, but any proposals from the incoming president would almost certainly dominate the Republican effort to overhaul federal health policy as he prepares to work with his party’s congressional majorities. Trump’s plan is likely to face questions...

    Viet Cong veteran Vo Ban Tam remembers the first time he crossed paths with John Kerry on the banks on the Bay Hap river, a day that ended in bloodshed. Almost a half-century later, the now 70-year-old Mekong Delta shrimp farmer locked eyes with the US Secretary of State on Saturday and they warmly grasped hands in mutual respect. Kerry returned to the Vietnam waterway at the end of a visit to the Communist nation, less than a week before he was to leave office, searching for the spot where he won a Silver Star for bravery as a young...
