    Breitbart ^ | 11/19/2017 | Jeff Poor
    In their Sunday editions, three of Alabama’s larger newspapers — Mobile, AL’s Press-Register, The Birmingham News and The Huntsville Times — featured front-page editorials telling voters to “reject Roy Moore” in next month’s U.S. Senate special election. The three newspapers, all under the Alabama Media Group umbrella, featured the headline at the top of their front pages in block lettering “STAND FOR DECENCY, REJECT ROY MOORE.”   The 1,200-word editorial that accompanied those headlines urged Alabama voters to dismiss what those beyond the state’s borders have to say about the race. advertisement Alabamians have never cared about what the rest of country...

    WEST NEWTON, PA -- There used to be 324 newspapers in the state of Pennsylvania. Today, there are about 60, give or take a few. The Pennsylvania Gazette is the first one on record not just in the colony of Pennsylvania but in all of the Crown's colonies. Benjamin Franklin bought the paper with a partner in 1729, and he contributed to it, as well, mostly under aliases. Among the many firsts, the plucky paper would print the first political cartoon in America, "Join, or Die," authored by Franklin. It also printed the then-treasonous texts of the Declaration of Independence,...

    By CAMPBELL ROBERTSON, ALLISON HOPE WEINER and WILLIAM K. RASHBAUM The New York Post is cooperating with a federal investigation into whether a longtime contributor for the Page Six gossip column the avidly read daily log of wrongdoing, double-dealing and sexual indiscretions by celebrities both minor and major tried to extort money from a California billionaire, according to a spokesman for the newspaper. Several people involved in the investigation said the reporter, Jared Paul Stern, had been captured on a video recording demanding a $100,000 payment and a monthly stipend of $10,000 from Ronald W. Burkle in return...

    Imagine the following scenario: Your humble author buys an Accord Coupe, and loves it, and suggests that you do the same. Not so hard to imagine, insofar as thats what actually happened. Now lets imagine I tell you that you, the TTAC reader, can get a discount on an Accord if you use my referral code. Thats kind of odd, right? After all, Im here to report on the Accord, not to incentivize your purchase. Last but not least, lets imagine that for every four Accords sold with my referral code, Honda gives me $6,200 worth of Honda products. A...
  • The New York Daily News bought by publisher Tronc for $1

    CBS News ^ | September 5, 2017
    The New York Daily News, which bills itself as "New York's Hometown Newspaper," has been acquired by newspaper publisher Tronc. The deal was struck for $1 and the assumption of pension and operational liabilities, according to The Chicago Tribune, which is owned by Tronc. The sale price is 50 cents less than the Sunday edition of the newspaper and matches the weekday newsstand price of $1 per copy. In 1993, real estate magnate Mort Zuckerman bought it for $36 million. The newspaper's liabilities may exceed $30 million, The New York Times said. Chicago-based Tronc (TRNC), which also publishes the Los...

    Upstate Business Journal ^ | July 28, 2017 | Sherry Jackson
    In todays 21st-century digital climate, newspapers are looking for creative ways to cut costs that go beyond trimming staff and cutting page sizes. Print is dead. Or so some say. In reality, the industry, like many others, is going through a massive transformation. Newspapers were once the primary sometimes the only form of communication and a mainstay of the community. Today, we get our news from a variety of sources, but community journalism is still here to stay. That means newspapers were (and still are) big business. But in todays 21st-century digital climate, newspapers are looking for creative...

    The Hill ^ | June 21, 2017 | Jacqueline Thomsen
    An Iowa newspaper ran a front-page editorial Wednesday telling President Trump that "now is not the time for a rally" ahead of his campaign event scheduled in the state later in the day. The editorial board of The Gazette in Cedar Rapids asked in an open letter to Trump for him to not hold his scheduled rally in the city but instead talk about his policies and how he will help Iowans. (TWEET-AT-LINK) Mr. President, the campaign is over. You won. Now is not the time to rally. Now is the time to sell your policies, listen to Americans with...

    On a day when a Republican congressman is fighting for his life, shot by a deranged leftist, the only way these cretins could process the villain/victim narrative switcheroo was to claim that the right started it. This is a smear, debunked years ago, and known as such even to devout liberals like Chris Hayes and Jonathan Chait.

    HILLSBORO, Ohio As publisher and editor of the Times-Gazette, a small daily newspaper in this southwest Ohio town (pop. 6,600), I thought our endorsement of Donald Trump for president last year seemed innocuous enough. Then someone said to me, Did you see that Rachel Maddow mentioned the Times-Gazette last night? Seriously? Next, Politico called. I soon discovered that our two-sentence endorsement was being reported and often ridiculed far and wide. The nearby Cincinnati Enquirer produced a post headlined This Ohio paper is one of only six to endorse Donald Trump. Not one of six in Ohio ...

    A couple of years ago, our paper which serves two large counties, switched from doing its own national review of AP and other source stories and started using the USA Today national insert. People at that time objected because of the extreme left-wing slant of the USA Today staff, but the paper cited costs. Well, during the Presidential campaign, USA Today was in for Hillary with both feet. Then came all the 'fake news' and the chief editor of the paper is now asking the readers if we want to go back to the paper vetting the stories or keeping...

    On February 17, 2017, President Donald Trump created a firestorm of controversy when he tweeted that the news media (The New York Times, CNN, NBC, and many more) is not his enemy, but is the enemy of the American people. In scrutinizing the Times, in relation to the culture war and major issues within the public square, the indictment, though I have many differences with the president, rings true for me, because, the vast majority of the time, I find myself on one side of an issue and they’re on the other.And, more than that, there is an overall historical...

    Republican Gov. John Kasich repeated his belief in the importance of the free press Wednesday as tensions between the media and the administration of President Donald Trump remain high.

But Kasich said he wanted to see the industry survive and thrive. Id like to stand for all of you, for all of you who have real content, for all of you whove decided...

    The CIA reportedly found that the Russia hacks were part of an effort to help put Donald Trump in the White House, a conclusion that the president-elect strongly rejects.   “Did you hear from intelligence sources that Russia’s intent was to put Donald Trump in the White House?” CNN host Carol Costello asked Engel on Monday.   “I haven’t heard from intelligence sources,” Engel said. “I only know what I’m reading in the newspapers, but intelligence sources have not contacted members of Congress. I’m calling on the intelligence sources to brief the members of Congress to give us a...

    Two pillars of local journalism are facing cuts. Sources confirm a Crain's Detroit business report that indicates the entire editorial staff at the Detroit News has been offered buyouts -- regardless of seniority. They have a week to decide before layoffs are announced. Sources tell 7 Action News staffers at the Detroit Free Press will be made a similar offer as early as Wednesday. Tim Kiska is a former staffer for both papers. "This is not good, I don't think, for public discourse at all. This is a disaster," Kiska said.

    It is interesting that the news of these Soros tools rioting is subtly being portrayed as grass roots protests. Our so-called news agencies do not seem to see the professionally made signs, common chants and where the protests are located. Nope they would rather keep the narrative of grass-root protests. A real news agency would have by now dug into the above facts and reported the truth. But then again they have shown themselves as a major portion of the conspiracy raging in this country against this country. They long ago joined those that have decided that this country was...
