  • Find Me One Honest Journalist

    I wonder if we Donald Trump should qualify as the 20th or 21st century’s honest man. I suppose we could cheat a little and count him as both. I doubt it actually matters because - as Colonel Nathan Jessup explained -  most people can’t handle the truth.They hear only their own truth.And denounce anyone who doesn’t agree with it as a denier, liar or worse.So even when you find your century’s honest man, many will reject the truth. I guess we can’t fault them; when you’ve gone so long without hearing any truth, the real thing is hard to recognize,...
  • Remembering Journolist and progressive media’s bag of tricks

    A couple weeks ago I came across an old article about Journolist which I found striking. In particular, I was struck by the ways in which some of the debates taking place among left-leaning journalists back in 2008 still seem to encompass the ways the left-wing media operates today. For those who don’t remember it, Journolist was just a listserv created by Ezra Klein. The list was invitation only and was mostly made up of progressive journalists. In theory, the list was a kind of digital water cooler where like-minded people could talk to others in the field. That may...

    Once the Middle EastÂ’s flourishing democracy, Turkey under Erdogan is lost in a sea of tyranny and political mayhem For all free and democratic societies, freedom of expression and the press are deemed sacred rights and it is considered sacrilege that any governmental authority attempts to control or censor these freedoms. Many in the US and Europe are under the impression that countries such as Cuba or North Korea may have the worst records of human rights violations along with the prosecution of journalists on flimsy accusations. The truth is that one of the worst records of human rights violations...
  • Dejected Mika has on-air Trump meltdown - “I have lost hope completely’

    The MSNBC follies continue. As you probably know; Mika Brzezinski is a Democrat “journalist” who famously believes it’s the media’s job to “control exactly what people think.” Apparently, that’s not working. People are thinking “other things” and Mika is scared. She’s nervous, she’s lost hope, and she’s crumbling under the pressure of it all. Trump’s weekend accusations have sent her over the edge and she’s issued a proclamation.

    Ahmet Şık German magazine Der Spiegel has reported journalist Ahmet Sik’s imprisonment with the headline “The Absurd Trial of Journalist Ahmet Sik’.Ahmek Sik, the UNESCO Press Freedom Prize winner, has been imprisoned since 30 December 2016 in Silivri Prison, where Welt reporter Deniz Yucel is being kept.The investigative journalist Sik, whose unpublished book landed him in solitary confinement for a year in 2011 after prosecutors loyal to the Gulenist movement targeted him, is now detained on charges of membership to what Turkish authorities call the ‘Gulenist Terrorist Organisation’ (FETO), Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C).The journalist wrote in his much-debated book, ‘The Army of the...

    The Telegraph ^ | 2 March 2017 | Justin Huggler, Berlin
    Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, has demanded the release of a German journalist arrested in Turkey amid calls for her government to block a visit by president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan over the case. The Turkish government summoned the German ambassador on Thursday to demand an explanation after appearances by two Turkish ministers in Turkey were prevented by local authorities amid widespread public anger at the arrest. In a considerable hardening of her position, Mrs Merkel said Germany would do “everything in its power” to secure the release of Deniz Yucel, a correspondent for Welt newspaper held on charges of spreading...
  • Jury finds reporter, Rolling Stone responsible for defaming U-Va. dean with gang rape story

    CHARLOTTESVILLE — A federal court jury decided Friday that a Rolling Stone journalist defamed a former University of Virginia associate dean in a 2014 magazine article about sexual assault on campus that included a debunked account of a fraternity gang rape. The 10 member jury concluded that the Rolling Stone reporter, Sabrina Rubin Erdely, was responsible for defamation, with actual malice, in the case brought by Nicole Eramo, a U-Va. administrator who oversaw sexual violence cases at the time of the article’s publication. The jury also found the magazine and its publisher responsible for defaming Eramo. The $7.5 million lawsuit...

    But can't think of anything to do about her, like, oh, say, fire her for being a dishonest hack. It’s impossible to feel any sympathy for Yahoo here. When they made Katie Couric their “global anchor” on the apparent belief that she was some sort of serious journalist, they either knew what they were getting into or were so ignorant of the real truth that they were investing in their own demise. And Yahoo has enough problems apart from the fact that the face of its news operation is a lying left-wing propagandist masquerading - and not very convincingly -...

    A Dutch-Turkish journalist has been detained in Turkey after posting tweets critical of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, her newspaper said. Ebru Umar wrote a column for the Dutch Metro newspaper criticising President Erdogan's clampdown on dissent. Since 2014, prosecutors have launched cases against more than 1,800 journalists for insulting Mr Erdogan. Last week, Germany allowed the prosecution of a prominent TV satirist for insulting Mr Erdogan to proceed. Jan Boehmermann had read a crude poem on TV, aimed at testing German law. Germany and the Netherlands have old lese-majeste laws against insulting the head of a friendly state. Both...

    Salim Sweidan, a Palestinian journalist who works for the Ma’an news agency, was arrested by Palestinian Authority security forces on Sunday after he reported that the PA provided Israel information which led to the arrest of the gunmen suspected of killing Eitam and Na’ama Henkin on a West Bank roadway last October. The Shin Bet said that a Hamas terrorist cell from Nablus was behind the October 1 murder of Eitam and Naama Henkin as they drove near Itamar with their four children. Sweidan reported on Ma’an’s television network that PA officials were involved in the arrest of the Hamas...

    RT spoke to Jurgen Todenhofer, the first Western journalist who was allowed to enter territory controlled by the so-called Islamic State. A year ago, he spent 10 days among the terrorists, also visiting Raqqa, the capital of the self-proclaimed caliphate. To arrange the journey, Todenhofer held Skype discussions with Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) for six months before they agreed to his visit. Finally, the jihadists gave him official guarantee safety. It was in their interest to fulfill their promises that I would come back alive and I came back alive, he said.

To wit: 1.

"Tomorrow I will leave Russia for some time," Sobchak said at the Friday party, according to the report.

VanDyke warned that removing the...
