    I wish I wasn’t the one to bring this tragedy to these vaulted pages amidst the litany of bad news we’ve huddled together against. I’m only the messenger of this giant’s downfall, who no doubt touched us all. Rapper Shawty Lo has died in a car accident in Atlanta. The 40-year-old rapper, born Carlos Walker, was ejected from his vehicle after he crashed into two trees on his way home from an Atlanta strip club. Walker leaves behind 11 children from 10 different mothers. He made headlines in 2013 when the television network Oxygen announced a special about the rapper...

  • Fake News: NBCNews.com Labels Democratic Senator Menendez as a Republican

    MRC NewsBusters ^ | 09/06/2017 | Curtis Houck
    On Wednesday, NBCNews.com published an Associated Press dispatch on the bribery trial of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez (N.J.), but there was one huge problem in that Menendez was labeled a Republican. Translation? NBC News saw no reason to engage in basic proofreading or got caught red-handed in the act of liberal bias. The unauthored post sat for well over two hours before being changed. NBCNews.com offered a correction at the bottom of the story: “CORRECTION (Sept. 6, 2017, 5:35 p.m.): An earlier version of this article misstated the party affiliation of Menendez. He is a Democrat, not a Republican.” Seeing...

    The Newseum's perennial financial woes once again spilled out into public Monday night after The Washington Post reported that the museum's president, Jeffrey Herbst, was stepping down as its board takes a long, hard look at the books. The audit could trigger a sale of the Newseum, a spectacular (and costly) mecca for news lovers on 555 Pennsylvania Ave in Washington, D.C., according to The Washington Post's Margaret Sullivan. Keeping the Newseum afloat has required more than $500 million from its creator, The Freedom Forum, and it hasn't become a self-sustaining enterprise:

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Sunday his country had foiled Western designs to topple him but his army had not yet won the fight to end Syria's six-year-old insurgency. In an televised address, Assad said that even though there were signs of victory after six-and-a-half years of civil war, the "battle continues, and where we go later and it becomes possible to talk about victory...that's a different matter".

    In this world we may have knowledge or repose but we may not have both. The human condition is a series of decisions; we either deal with them or circumstances deal with us. Once a bell is rung in our presence we cannot un-ring it. All of these apply to our relationship to the Drudge Report. For years we have looked to Matt Drudge and his Drudge Report as a place where we could get some actual news. During the presidential election cycle last year this was especially true. While the foaming-at-the-mouth liars in the media churned out their disinformation...

    In September 2014, I watched a tank battle from a hilltop in Mariupol, Ukraine. I toured that battlefield, the day the first cease-fire was signed, on Sept. 5, 2014. I witnessed a wasteland of charred, destroyed tanks, and armored personnel carriers.And scores of dead soldiers who reminded me of the plaster molds of the dead in Pompeii, the way they seemed to be frozen in the moment and the motion of their deaths.

    A federal prosecutor’s body was discovered on a Hollywood, Florida beach on May 24. He was shot in the head. Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr.’s body was found in May by a random individual. The police were investigating at the time to determine if Whisenant’s death was a “homicide, suicide, or something else.” Whisenant worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in its major crimes unit. He was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district.

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | Aug. 8, 2017 | Kathryn Covert
    Republican donors are protesting GOP lawmakers' failure to repeal Obamacare by withholding donations to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. At least $2 million in contributions originally promised to the NRSC have not materialized, CNN reported Tuesday. The failure of Republicans to fulfill a central campaign promise particularly concerns some donors because it could disillusion core voters heading into the 2018 midterms. The uncertainty could put the Republicans' majority—especially in the House of Representatives—at risk.

    WASHINGTON — If you don't like what they're saying, change the conversation. Or, in the case of President Donald Trump's campaign, produce your own news series. In the fight against what Trump has decried as "fake news" about him and his administration, his team has launched its own version of events: Taking the president's frequent laments about a lack of media focus on jobs, the stock market and the economy and turning it into a weekly video posted to Facebook focusing on just that. "More great economic news on Friday," former pro-Trump cable news commentator Kayleigh McEnany says, seated in...
