  • APNewsBreak: Racial disparities seen in police stun gun use (Connecticut)

    01/27/2016 12:38:54 PM PST · by Olog-hai · 25 replies
    Associated Press ^ | Jan 27, 2016 3:27 PM EST | Dave Collins
    Connecticut officers who drew their stun guns on the job last year were more likely to fire when the suspect was black or Hispanic, according to a first-of-its-kind set of statistics that could stoke the nation's debate over race and police use of force. The raw, preliminary data was obtained by The Associated Press ahead of an official analysis expected in the coming weeks. While police and state officials cautioned against passing judgment until then, at least one criminal justice expert said he would not be surprised to see similar findings elsewhere around the country. Some civil rights groups said...
  • The Standard of Excellence ("The Media Died" when MSNBC Fired Keith Olbermann)

    Washington Monthly ^ | January 10, 2016 | D.R. Tucker
    It was, perhaps, the day the media died. Next week marks the fifth anniversary of the bitter night-January 21, 2011-when progressive Americans, and indeed Americans of all political persuasions who value honor, truth, respect, intelligence and decency, were shocked to learn that MSNBC had decided to end Countdown with Keith Olbermann, perhaps the single best news program ever to air on cable television in the United States. The abrupt cancellation of Countdown was a victory for the dishonest political forces Olbermann had forcefully condemned during his nearly eight-year run-and a demoralizing defeat for democracy. Things just haven't been the same...
  • Exclusive — RNC Officially Severs Ties With NBC News For Upcoming GOP Debate

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) officially voted on Monday afternoon to sever its business relationship with NBC News for the previously-scheduled Feb. 26, 2016, GOP presidential primary debate, Breitbart News has learned. The Debate Committee for the RNC met via conference call and after hearing updates from RNC chairman Reince Priebus officially voted to cancel the partnership with NBC, according to sources on the call. The vote was unanimous. After the October debate hosted by NBC partner CNBC—in which co-moderator John Harwood was roundly criticized for a poor performance—the RNC suspended its relationship with NBC News over that upcoming Houston...

    Russia Today, in terms of being an unbiased news source, is probably only slightly worse than the soon to be shuttered Al Jazeera America. Their spin on pretty much everything is the same: blame America, but do it in a way which makes it look slightly more like actual news than Vladimir Putin’s personal propaganda bureau. Some of their previous employees have grown tired of the biased Kremlin advertising and taken the rare path of turning down a job in the media. As Jim reminds us, one of RT’s anchors famously had a drop the mic moment and walked off...

    Lifezette.com ^ | January 13, 2016 | Jon Conradi
    Ted Cruz, now locked in a struggle to the political death with reigning campaign champion Donald Trump, faces a make-or-break night at the GOP debate Thursday night. Proving his mettle as a candidate worthy of his post-season position, Cruz has ruggedly endured a sustained week of media battering over Trump’s birtherism blitz, losing little ground. Trump’s all-out offensive raising questions about Cruz’s eligibility because of his birth in Canada – widely held to be a non-issue by constitutional experts — has arrested Cruz’s upward momentum but not caused a collapse. But while Cruz has barely dropped in the polls as...

Eventually, Nazaryan deleted the tweet. He then tweeted an "explanation" for why he deleted it (but not an apology). Do note that the tweet was there for about nine hours before he finally decided he was tired of people replying to it and deleted it to save his mentions column. Not a word of apology in this tweet.

    I have long marveled at liberals' air of superiority and lack of self-reflection, which have always been particularly evident among liberal media elites and journalists. They tend to view themselves as sacrosanct and above scrutiny.Perhaps this attitude sprang from the British and, later, American tradition that the press is the Fourth Estate. It doesn't just serve to inform the people and make them better contributors to the democratic process. It is the virtual fourth branch of government, operating as a watchdog on the formal branches to further check their potential abuses of power. It is a heady concept to believe...

    Boston Globe executives summoned managers of its new distribution partner to a meeting Sunday to discuss widespread delivery failures, but the day ended with finger pointing and no clarity about when all home subscribers could once again count on getting their newspapers. Behind disruptions affecting up to 10 percent of daily subscribers are two basic problems, both sides said. ACI Media Group Inc., which took over home delivery in Greater Boston last Monday, has yet to hire enough drivers to cover every route. And many of ACI’s new delivery routes lack any logical sequence, leaving drivers criss-crossing communities and making...

Trump said again that he was not offended that Putin praised him, even though he has been accused of killing journalists. "I don't like that. I'm totally against that," Trump said. "By the way, I hate some of these people but I'd never kill them." He pretended to reconsider, saying , "Let's see. No, I wouldn't....

Among the top channels taking big hits this year are TNT, off 16% in viewers, and History, which is experiencing a decline of 20%. Even AMC, home of "The Walking Dead" and the last season of "Mad Men," is down 2%. Not every news channel got a boost from politics. Al Jazeera America finished 99th in prime-time rankings with an average of just 28,000 viewers.

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Tim Graham. When Ted Turner was running CNN back in 1991, he banned the use of the word "foreign" on air. In a memo to employees, he made a threat to fine employees with a forced donation to UNICEF. To avoid offense, they were told they should use the word "international" instead because it "promotes a sense of unity." Today, this is Jeff Zucker's CNN, and unity be damned. Offending the audience is part of the ratings gambit. On Dec. 13, as many Christians celebrated the third Sunday of Advent and rejoiced over...

What they didn’t realize is that except for their different religions they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job.

    Political commentators have asserted for months that Donald Trump’s dominance of the Republican presidential field is fueled by his anti-immigrant rhetoric. As Thomas Edsall put it: Donald Trump's success is no surprise. The public and the press have focused on his defiant rejection of mannerly rhetoric, his putting into words of what others think privately. But the more important truth is that a half-century of Republican policies on race and immigration have made the party the home of an often angry and resentful white constituency -- a constituency that is now politically mobilized in the face of demographic upheaval.

During the political fireworks, Clinton was watching the show, with loyal Democrats matching their Republican colleagues volume, and Clinton staying out.

He told The Sydney Morning Herald that his editor "was like, 'Great! I love it! Let's do it!'" In the comic, Wonder Woman solemizes two women's "marriage." "By the power vested in me," is replaced with "Bound by the lasso of truth." At the conclusion of...

We have probably not seen Republican candidates charging to the right like this for a long time if ever. The current Drudge poll which Fox and its further left friends will ignore- shows Trump pulling an incredible 45% plus...

    Kelly Osbourne stuck her foot firmly in her mouth on Tuesdays episode of The View when she made an unfortunate remark during a discussion on Donald Trumps favorability among Latino voters. If you kick every Latino out of this country, who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump? Osbourne said. Her statement was met with an awkward groan from Raven-Symone before co-host Rosie Perez said, Latinos are not the only people doing that. Osbourne quickly back-pedaled, saying I would never mean it like that. Im not part of this argument.

    Four months ago, an independent review by the Columbia Journalism School concluded that Rolling Stone's November 2014 article about an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia was "a journalistic failure that was avoidable." The magazine retracted the story and apologized, but publisher Jann Wenner said no one involved in the story's publication would be fired. Managing editor Will Dana told the New York Times that he felt the review was punishment enough, and no one deserved to lose their job because the article "was not the result of patterns in the work of these people." Now it appears...

    The Washington Post has rehired Dave Weigel. He is covering the presidential campaign for the paper. In his last stint with the Post, Weigel covered the conservative movement. However, he lost his job due to vicious comments he posted on Journolist about major conservative figures and the conservative movement in general. When Rush Limbaugh was rushed to the hospital with chest pains, Weigel quipped, I hope he fails, a reference to Limbaughs comment that he hoped the Obama presidency would fail. He described Newt Gingrich as an amoral blowhard who resigned in disgrace and who is now polluting my inbox...

    In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper that was broadcasted tonight Republican candidate for president Donald Trump berated the reporter for continuing to address polls that shed him in a negative light instead of polls showing his upper-tier status. "I am leading across the board," Trump said in the interview. "And then you hit me with this poll that I didn't see before, where oh, gee, it's not even that kind of a poll. All i know is I have a very big group of support. And I think one of the reasons." "Let me tell you. The people don't...

    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- The family of the man who killed four Marines and a sailor in Chattanooga said in a statement that their son suffered from depression and was not the person they knew.

"The person who committed this horrible crime was not the son we knew and loved. For many years, our son suffered from depression. It grieves us beyond belief to know that his pain found its...

    For the second year in a row, a member of the LGBT community has taken home ESPNs Arthur Ashe Courage Award, simply for being gay or transgender. If you take issue with that, youre a trans-phobic and vile hatemonger, according to numerous media outlets. Peter Berg, director of such films as Lone Survivor, Friday Night Lights, and Battleship is feeling the wrath Thursday, after posting a critical image of Jenners ESPY selection to his Instagram page following Wednesday nights show. Berg shared an image of Army veteran Gregory Gadson, a double amputee who played a role in Battleship, alongside an...

    The Huffington Post said on Friday it will no longer cover the presidential campaign of real estate mogul and former reality TV star Donald Trump as politics, but rather, as entertainment. "Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow," read a post bylined by the site's Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim and editorial director Danny Shea.

    Real-estate magnate Donald Trump just had one of the most contentious interviews so far of his 2016 presidential campaign. Trump, who has a high-profile feud with NBCUniversal, sat down Wednesday with NBC News' Katy Tur. And after Tur challenged Trump's argument linking violent crime to illegal immigration, he told her she should be better informed. "Don't be naive. You're a very naive person," he said. When Tur stumbled while referencing some statistics to bolster her point, Trump mocked her inability to get the question out. "Try getting it out. Try getting it out. I mean, I don't know if you're...

    NBC has canceled A.D. The Bible Continues after just one season, Deadline reports. The miniseries, created by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, was a follow-up to their record-breaking miniseries The Bible, and chronicled the early days of modern Christianity. A.D., which premiered on Easter, was positioned as an event series at NBC, but Downey, Burnett and the network had indicated that subsequent seasons were part of the plan. It's possible that the show will continue on another platform
