    'Something posing as objective data is actually rigged'! Conservative authors long have charged the New York Times with skewing its best-seller list against them, but now, citing the Times’ low ranking of Dinesh D’Souza’s latest best-seller, a major publisher is severing its ties with the “paper of record.” Regnery, pointing to Nielsen BookScan’s figures, based on actual sales through major retailers, contends the Times is rigging its list, ranking D’Souza’s “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left” below books with half as many sales. “There’s been a lot of talk about the New York Times being...

    Chick-fil-A, an American fast-food chain open for business a meagre six days a week, has retained the crown for most revenue per restaurant in the US, according to the latest report released by QSR magazine. Chick-fil-A raked in revenues of over $4.4 million, more than doubling trendy competitors In-N-Out Burger, Chipotle, and Steak N Shake. It’s next closest competitor is Whataburger, which generated $2.7 million per restaurant, a mere 61 percent of Chick-fil-A’s top line. Chick-fil-A decimated the chicken industry, toppling over direct competitors Zaxby’s ($2.3 million), El Pollo Loco ($1.9 million), Bojangles’ ($1.8 million), Popeyes ($1.4 million), Boston Market...

    Top 10 Oregon counties for gonorrhea Updated July 15, 2017 Posted July 11, 2017 A gonorrhea epidemic has hit Oregon amid public health concerns that the disease is becoming immune to standard treatment. Since 2012, cases have nearly tripled statewide, affecting just about every part of Oregon, including rural counties where infections have been traditionally low. Officials in some counties have become so concerned that they’ve launched public awareness campaigns, with ads on dating sites, Facebook and Google. In others, specialists have gone door-to-door, trying to track down infected people and their partners to get them treated. “We came to...

    The 2017 College Football Season kicks off on Saturday, Aug. 26, with six games. But the season may not truly feel like it's underway until the following week when the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Florida State Seminoles meet at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Classic. While the Associated Press preseason rankings have yet to be released, there is a strong possibility that Alabama and Florida State will both be ranked somewhere within the top three. Most experts have listed the Crimson Tide as the top team in the nation, but the Seminoles could be as high...

    When it comes to hate, as goes Los Angeles, so goes California? Hate crime reports in the city of 4 million represented nearly a quarter of all reported hate crimes in the state last year, according to the state Department of Justice’s latest tally. About one-third of the 11 percent increase in California hate crimes from 2015 to 2016 came in the city. Other large, racially diverse urban areas showed a similar trend, according to the state data.

    Last week, more Americans tuned in to watch re-runs of “Yogi Bear,” “Full House,” and “Friends” on Nick At Nite than to watch Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon’s shows on CNN. According to cable ratings from the week of June 26-July 2, CNN’s viewership of its primetime shows was ranked significantly lower than its competitors like Fox News and MSNBC, which place first and second respectively. Clocking in at No. 10 on the list, CNN fell behind HGTV, Nick At Nite, History Channel, and ESPN — the sports network that’s been hemorrhaging viewers for months. CNN’s ratings nosedive corresponds with...

    The White House on Friday released a list of salary information for nearly 400 employees of President Trump’s executive office. The 16-page document details the annual salaries of top staffers and advisors to the president. They are making slightly more in their positions than Obama administration staffers did, though salaries across the federal government get bumped up yearly for inflation. Like his predecessors, the best-paid aides in President Trump's White House are those closest to him.

    Hillary Clinton blamed the Democratic National Committee, Facebook, and conspiracy site Infowars Wednesday for her election defeat during an interview in which she pointed at a total of 18 alleged guilty parties for her big loss. At a conference held by technology news site Recode, Clinton said that she inherited “nothing” from the DNC after winning the nomination. “It was bankrupt,” the failed presidential candidate and former first lady said. Clinton also blamed alleged Russian election interference for his loss. “The Russians, in my opinion, and based on the intel and counter-intel people I’ve talked to, could not have known...

    I am a sucker for lists. A few weeks ago, sparked by reading yet another claim that Donald Trump is the most "fill in the blank" in American history, I Googled "the worst American in history." I thought there was a list for everything some where in Googleland, but there was no decent list for this. So I decided to construct a respectable ranking of the five worst Americans in history. I surveyed a group of about 30 academic and popular American historians, political scientists and law professors, asking them to nominate five figures from American history. Contemporaries were eligible,...

    Fox News slipped to third place in the primetime demo for the first time in 17 years last week as competitors CNN and MSNBC enjoyed a surge in viewership thanks to a chaotic news week for President Donald Trump’s administration. For the week of May 15-19, Fox News averaged just 497,000 viewers in the advertiser-coveted key demo of adults 25-54 during primetime hours, compared to CNN’s 589,00 and MSNBC’s 611,000, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which cited data from ratings tracker Nielsen.
