  • Ms. Sanders, I’m thankful that Trump wasn’t president when I came to this country

    The Miami Herald ^ | November 21, 2017 | Fabiola Santiago
    In President Donald Trump’s first Thanksgiving in the White House, the Pilgrims are expendable — and so is the media’s dignity. Clad in cheerful holiday red, his press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, walked up to the White House press corps podium Monday and ran through the reasons she’s thankful this Thanksgiving. Her list was basically a rundown of President Trump’s so-called “law and order” and “America First” policies, and she thanked the protagonists tasked with defending the country, our borders and our streets. The moment might have gone down as another superficial delivery of rhetoric versus substance, but then Sanders...
  • Will Donald Trump drive Miami Cuban Americans from GOP? New poll says yes

    Miami Herald ^ | PATRICIA MAZZEI
    Donald Trump is the catalyst who could force a decisive break between Miami-Dade County’s influential Cuban-American voters and the Republican Party, a new poll has found. Local Cuban Americans dislike Trump so much — and are increasingly so accepting of renewed U.S.-Cuba ties pushed by Democratic President Barack Obama — that Trump’s likely presidential nomination might accentuate the voters’ political shift away from the GOP, according to the survey shared with the Miami Herald and conducted by Dario Moreno, a Coral Gables pollster and a Florida International University associate politics professor...
  • The awful truth about Hillary is beginning to dawn on Dems

    American Thinker ^ | Thomas Lifson
    We live in an age of narratives, not news. The narrative in the mainstream media is that Hillary Clinton is “inevitable” as the Democratic nominee, with supporting polling data from the New York Times (that oversamples Democrats and under-samples Republicans) manufactured to support the narrative. But the real news, what people need to know, is that Hillary looks like a disaster-in-the-making, with very poor campaign skills and an indefensible record overseeing foreign policy disasters that have exploded in the face of Obama. But some in the mainstream media are beginning to shed their reluctance to say that the empress has...
  • Mike Brown Autopsy – How The Scheme Team Used Their NY Times Cohort Frances Robles To Sell The Lie

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | Aug 19, 2014 | Sundance
    You’ve seen the story of the Mike Brown family autopsy, and the grand press conference they produced to deliver it to the public. But a closer look points out why the Scheme Team actually used New York Times Frances Robles to deliver the ruse: Frances worked with the Scheme Team in 2012 (2012 bio below) while she was at the Miami Herald and was part of their inner circle of media types willing to sell the Trayvon Story. The actual truth appears to be – a rather controversial person Shawn Parcells, who is NOT a forensic pathologist, was used by...

    Okay, we are now entering a new era for the DUmmie FUnnies. In addition to the regular DUFUs, I will also be posting stream of consciousness observations based on whatever is in the newspaper. The first of these you can see in this VIDEO. I don't really plan the topics, they just sort of come to me as I analyze the newspaper. In this edition, I analyze the decline of the Miami Herald, the sad fate of a friend of mine named Tom who made a bad business decision, the testimony yesterday of Marilyn Tavenner of CMS, and the...

    The black mob violence at Fort Lauderdale over the Memorial Day weekend was nothing much, said the chief of police, local media and business boosters. And the chief knows that because very few people were arrested, he said. But if nothing happened in Fort Lauderdale, then even less happened a few miles away earlier this week at the Lauderhill Mall where a mob of 200 to 300 black people were fighting, destroying property, rampaging past the stores, taunting police and creating chaos. The Miami Herald picked up the beat: “A small fight,” said the local paper of record. Which could...
  • FBI Report: Florida Family Had Ties to People Linked to 9/11 Attacks

    The Miami Herald ^ | Tuesday, April 16, 2013 | Dan Christensen and Anthony Summers,
    A Saudi family who “fled” their Sarasota area home weeks before 9/11 had “many connections” to “individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001,” according to newly released FBI records. One partially declassified document, marked “secret,” lists three of those individuals and ties them to the Venice, Fla., flight school where suicide hijackers Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi trained. Accomplice Ziad Jarrah took flying lessons at another school a block away. Atta and al-Shehhi were at the controls of the jetliners that slammed into the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Center, killing nearly 3,000 people. Jarrah was the...

    'Thugs' attack Islamists outside Egypt's Defense Ministry, killing 11 By NANCY A. YOUSSEF AND AMINA ISMAIL McClatchy Newspapers CAIRO -- In the deadliest outbreak of violence in weeks, at least 11 protesters were killed and at least 150 wounded early Wednesday outside the Defense Ministry in Cairo in clashes with civilian attackers, putting Egypt's presidential election and already-fragile democratic transition in further turmoil. Several Islamist presidential candidates announced Wednesday that they were suspending their campaigns - some for 48 hours and some indefinitely - in response to the violence and the military-run government's apparent unwillingness to stop it. Officials also...

    NY Daily News ^ | March 18, 2012 | Philip Caulfield
    A new book by an ex-CIA spook claims that Cuban dictator Fidel Castro knew about Lee Harvey Oswald's plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy and did nothing to stop it. Author Brian Latell was the agency's former national intelligence officer for Latin America and is now a senior research associate in Cuban American studies at the University of Miami. In the upcoming volume, "Castro's Secrets: The CIA and Cuba's Intelligence Machine," Latell writes that on Nov. 22 1963, Castro ordered his intelligence officers in Havana to drop their normal responsibilities and pay close attention to communications coming out of...

    Holy Mackerel! This might come as a big shock mainly to people who live in South Florida but the Miami Herald Circulation has now dropped BELOW that of the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. Here are the facts from a couple of reports:MIAMI HERALDThe Miami Herald has a average weekday combined circulation of 173,555, with Sunday circulation of 217,163. El Nuevo Herald has a combined circulation of 57,743 daily and 72,504 daily. ABC changed its reporting rules, replacing “total paid circulation” with “total average circulation,” which consists of a publication’s paid and verified print and digital circulation. Due to the change, ABC...

    Miami Herald ^ | 24 Nov 2010 | Leonard Pitts
    An average of 17.7 percent of all Americans were at times unable to feed themselves in the 12 months prior to September of this year. That's according to an analysis of data from the Gallup-Healthways Index, conducted and newly released by the Food Resource and Action Center (FRAC), an advocacy group. You may be wondering: In what universe does a 17.7 percent hunger rate qualify as good news? In this one, actually. That figure, after all, represents a slight drop from the average 18.5 percent rate recorded at the end of 2009. But even the smaller figure is hardly reassuring,...

    Call it the Peter Principle 2.0. Instead of just promoting someone to the level of his incompetence, McClatchy Newspapers has actually promoted failed Miami Herald executive editor, Anders Gyllenhaal, beyond his level of his incompetence. Is your humble correspondent being a bit too harsh in his assessment of Anders Gyllenhaal's capabilities? Allow me to enter into the record the judgement in September of the people who actually worked for him at the Herald: Last week, several Miami Herald editors and reporters wrote a letter to the paper's management asking it to stop focusing on delivering quick news and return to...

In an effort to minimize the number of layoffs, we will achieve additional savings in several ways: through operational efficiencies and the elimination of open positions, and in a second furlough that will...
  • Many Democrats more anti-Rubio than pro-anyone

    Miami Herald ^ | 9/3/2010 | Beth Reinhard
    Remember the saying ``Anyone But Bush'' among Democrats in 2004 who feared a second term by George W. Bush? Florida Democrats are slinging a variation on the slogan for 2010: ``Anyone But Rubio.'' To liberal voters, Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio is a right-winging, tea-partying, oil-drilling, stimulus-hating, Obamacare-shunning, taxes-on-the-rich-cutting nightmare. And these Democrats are determined to stop him from winning on Nov. 2 by any means necessary, even if that means bailing on their own party's nominee, Kendrick Meek. A vote for Meek is a vote for Rubio, the thinking goes, because Meek can't win. He's a lackluster Miami congressman...

    I'm not sure which is funnier about this Miami Herald story; that Adultery 101 was published in that newspaper or the fact that it was actually written by Herald staffers. It is so bizarre of a story that it should be marked down as a sign of desperation to attract readers in the midst of a calamitous circulation plunge. So let us now join the Miami Herald staffers as they present their readers with "helpful tips" on how to commit adultery with a celeb shoutout to Tiger Woods: So you're left scratching your head, wondering how a guy like Tiger...

  • Do the right thing; give columnist back his job

    I hope this column is outdated by the time you read it. Ordinarily, it is the bane of a columnist's existence, the fear that his words will become obsolete between the time of his writing and your reading. But in this case, that would be the happiest possible outcome, because it would mean Jim DeFede had his job back. That he lost it in the first place is a travesty.
