    New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters slammed radio talk show host Sean Hannity’s “unethical behavior” regarding how he is covering the current presidential candidates. “Every profession has its norms and boundaries for assessing the way its members should handle their trade,” Peters proclaimed. “Journalists have an ethical obligation to live up to these norms and respect these boundaries. It has been agreed by the majority within our profession that it is our journalistic duty to do whatever we can to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president. Hannity has flouted this agreement by urging voters to do the exact opposite of...

    A Chinese-American intern working for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has written a first-person account of his attempt to cover the aftermath of the Sylville Smith shooting. Aaron Mak says he was attacked by a group of people who chased and beat him because he wasn’t black. He was then rescued by other people in the crowd who pointed out that he was Chinese, not white. From Politico Magazine: It had all started earlier that day, around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 13, when Milwaukee police officers pulled over two black men in the city’s predominantly African-American Sherman Park neighborhood.

    HBO's hit series Game of Thrones might contain some real-life lessons about family, but at the end of the day it’s still a fantasy show – for most of us. However, the show apparently is startlingly realistic for at least one artist out there. Namely, rapper Snoop Dogg, who seems to believe that the dragon-infested world of GoT is real ... or at least was real. When a reporter for the New York Post asked him about being a fan of the series, Snoop replied: “I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based...

    Well, is this just playful trolling, or an omen not being taken seriously on the Left? Michael Rosenblum, the founder of the left-leaning Current TV, which was sold off to Al-Jazeera, had quite the declaration on The Huffington Post: Donald Trump is going to be elected president of the United States. Granted, he didn’t necessarily say polls be damned, though he might as well since Rosenblum said that this race was lost eons ago when Swamp People, Pawn Stars, and the endless World War II programming came on the History Channel. He says the same for the programming on The...

    When it comes to common sense, it might be safe to say that CNN political commentator Sally Kohn missed a memo or two. Now some people are gathering signatures for a petition telling Kohn to put her life where her agenda is. There's a Change.org petition encouraging Kohn to travel to a place that enforces Sharia law. This petition came after Kohn tweeted at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying progressive Muslims believe in Sharia:

    Monday morning an independent reporter named Tim Pool announced he would no longer cover events in Milwaukee after witnessing white reporters being harassed and seeing a white man shot in the neck. Pool posted a video explaining his decision on You Tube. “Upon arriving here one of the first things we hear is the crowd getting angry and saying ‘what are these white people doing here?'” Pool said. Pool says he took it as a sign locals were angry but didn’t assume that meant it was unsafe for him to continue to cover events. “Things started to get really tense...

Now he’s under attack from a different variety of communist - the American social justice warriors whose job it is to be offended by everything and find it sexist, racist, homophobic and whatever else. Especially if it dares to actually be funny. And once again, though I am really no big fan of Seth Rogen,...

The firm originally filed for voluntary chapter 7 bankruptcy on July 15, but further filings were completed on July 29. According to documents seen by Kotaku, Fireforge owed considerable amounts of money to several parties, but the majority of its debt, believed to have been accrued prior to the development of Ghostbusters, is owed to partial owner Tencent, which controls 37% of the...

The ceremony is a joint creative effort, headed by Italian executive producer Marco Balich, a veteran of 17 such bookends of major sporting events, and creative director Fernando Meirelles, the Brazilian whose films include City...

(The Washington Post) "Is the Trump campaign collapsing?" (The Atlantic) "Trouble in Trump-land?" (Politico) "Trump-world frustrated by their candidate."

    One tradition that has been notably absent from Hillary Clinton's campaign for the presidency has been press conferences where the media are invited to query the candidate. "We'll have a press conference when we want to have a press conference," Clinton pollster Joel Benenson said on ABC News this past week. "Our candidate is under no legal obligation to answer to the press. We will control what is said to whom and when it will be said. We acknowledge that this may be inconvenient from the media's perspective, but they'll just have to bear with it." Benenson also pointed out...

    And in their rush to condemn Trump, are journalists betraying their values? Glenn Greenwald says yes to both. The release of hacked Democratic National Committee emails last week was followed on Wednesday by Donald Trump’s invitation to Russia to find and release Hillary Clinton’s missing emails. Trump has since claimed that he was being “sarcastic,” but some believe that he is all too happy to rely on hacked materials to further his campaign for the White House—and doesn’t appreciate the national security implications of Russian intelligence’s alleged breach of DNC servers. Others believe that Trump’s more isolationist foreign policy ideas,...

    After a day full of tensions between Bernie Sanders supporters and the Democratic Party, the first few hours of the party's convention on Monday featured plenty of distractions, and things seemed to be moving forward. Then Sarah Silverman showed up. The comedian was a Sanders supporter in the primary, and she came to the stage with Clinton supporter and fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum, Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.). It was a good idea in theory: Two comedians trying to bring some levity to the situation and defuse it with humor. But feelings were still raw. Silverman argued for unity and...

Appearing on discussion show Real Time with Bill Maher on Wednesday, Moore elicited booing from the studio audience when he told the panel: “I’m sorry to be the buzzkill here so early on, but I think Trump is gonna win.”(continued)

This is what journalistic integrity is in the twenty first century. This wasn’t just for bashing Donald Trump. CNN Tapper was given stories to bash Ted Cruz too. Why am I not surprise? There’s a reason why CNN is known as the Clinton News Network. Now we can call it...

And even France’s efforts to allow for the free expression of religion has, I think arguably in some cases, produced more isolation and more radicalization.” In the 2 p.m. ET hour of CNN Newsroom, anchor Brooke Baldwin teed up senior international correspondent Nima Elbagir to make an identical argument: “Make your point again for people who are just joining us.

And the self-hating white liberal media is practically orgasmic congratulating and tweeting Williams on what a great speech it was. But I thought it might be useful to decipher this speech, because frankly, it screams of anti-white racism. Peace peace. Thank you, Debra. Thank you,...

How would the media react? The answer is hilarious, terrifyingly accurate, an astute indictment of the way the modern media machine works.

After its only broadcast, ABC embargoed this---it was never released on DVD. It is easy to see why. Clinton's fingerprints were all over the failure to stop 9/11. Sandy Berger is portrayed as a completely gutless political hack. Richard Clark is depicted as knowledgable but completely in cover-your-@ss mode all the time. But even the good FBI agents, including John O'Neill, were so constrained by the "laws of evidence" they were utterly helpless. The CIA and the...

It’s one thing to portray the military in Hollywood, as the cast of the blockbuster “Independence Day” did 20 years ago in a story that featured people of Earth banding together to topple alien invaders. Much of the cast has regrouped, with some new cast members, for “Independence Day: Resurgence,” the much anticipated sequel that hits theaters this Thursday. But to visit the troops on their turf and see what they do to defend the U.S. is quite another thing. Two stars from the new film, Jessie T. Usher and...

    I think it's pretty stupid to vote for Democrats who, rather than protecting individual rights, openly want to violate individual rights. The whole job of the government is the former, and so you're electing people who want to do the exact opposite of what the actual role of government is. Rather than a government that protects rights (as a policeman), you elect Democrats who create a government that violates rights (like a criminal itself). Yes, the Republicans are bad too, but the Democrats take rights-violating to the n'th degree, and their ideal political system (socialism) is one of the most...

    On Sunday, even after the FBI hinted the presence of a link to radical Islam, the panel on ABC’s This Week blamed the terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida on heated election rhetoric and guns in America. “I think we all ought to pause with what happened in Orlando today,” stated ABC’s Matt Dowd when asked if third party candidates could gain supporters, “And if we understand that all of the hateful thoughts become hateful words become hateful actions.” Dowd continued, “And now, maybe in the course of this, after what happened, the temperatures will go down...

    Lena Dunham has launched a scathing attack on Donald Trump, calling the Republican Presidential candidate a "hell hound".

And at TheWrap's Power Women Breakfast in New York on Thursday (09Jun16), the actress did not hold back when talking about Trump. Calling him a "maniacal, misogynist, racist, Islamophobic, ableist, transphobic hell hound", she went on to reveal she frequently laughs at the controversial politician. "I think we...

    Just took an Emirates flight from my new home in Perth to Dubai on my way to Florida for business. The flight was great and this article is being posted from my second flight on their free included wifi internet. However that is not the point of this vanity. Their entertainment system is. The first movie I watched was "London has fallen" which was positively fun. The second was 13 Hours about Benghazi. Very disturbing! Trump really needs to do a two hour television buy and show this movie and state that it is complimentary of the Hildabeast. I just...

    Martha Stewart says Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” pales in comparison to “the real thing.” In an interview with comedian and talk show host Chelsea Handler, Stewart spoke fondly of her time in women's federal prison. "When you live through something like 'Orange is the New Black' ... the real characters are better," said Stewart, who served five months behind bars in 2004 to 2005 for insider trading. She conceded that she does not watch the Netflix series, premiering its fourth season on June 17. “Too close to home?” Handler asked. “Well, no. It’s not as good as the...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | May 31, 2016 | Eddie Scarry
    Columnists are starting to blame voters for the rise of Donald Trump, and say their collective decision to make him the presumptive Republican nominee is a terrible mistake. Liberal columnist Richard Cohen wrote in the Washington Post on Monday that the election has filled him with a sense of "fear of my fellow Americans." "I don't mean the occasional yahoo who turns a Trump rally into a hate fest," he wrote. "I mean the ones who do nothing. Who are silent. Who look the other way… I always knew who Trump was. It's the American people who have come as...

    Bill welcomes Dilbert creator and "How to Fail at Everything and Still Win Big" author Scott Adams to discuss Trump's powers of persuasion and branding in this clip from May 27, 2016. SCOTT ADAMS: I've been studying persuasion for decades and when I saw Trump last summer displaying the tools of persuasion I thought, 'Oh my God, he's not a crazy clown. Everything he's doing, including his complete ignoring of the facts, is persuasion perfection. I called him to be the landslide winner in the general election last year. Essentially he's basically bringing a flamethrower to a stick fight. There's...
