  • Scarborough: 'I Blame Cable News' for Cops Being Less Safe

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    You wish he had named names . . . On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough flatly stated "I do blame it on cable news" for "people wearing uniforms being a lot less safe today than they were before Ferguson." So just which cable networks did Joe have in mind? Until last week [when he was relegated to the Sunday morning desert], Scarborough's own MSNBC was the Al Sharpton network. So surely Scarborough was pointing the finger at least partially at MSNBC. But as he continued, Scarborough also identified other unnamed cable networks that he accused of "glorifying" Vester Flanagan and...

    Fake Twitter followers abound among the U.S. presidential candidates as they gear up for the election in 2016. And Hillary Clinton isn’t the only candidate with more than a million of them. GOP frontrunner Donald Trump also has well over a million fake followers. Other candidates have them, too, but not as many (in large part because they don’t have as many followers, period).

    The College Fix ^ | August 25, 2015 | Greg Piper
    Sara Goldrick-Rab, a sociology professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, caused a firestorm last month when she publicly compared her governor, Republican Scott Walker, to Adolf Hitler in a tweet. She poured fuel on the flames by tweeting at incoming freshmen who were Walker supporters, encouraging them not to attend the school because of Walker’s education funding policies. Then, she apologized. Now she’s promoting a class she’s teaching this fall on “scholar activism.” The graduate seminar will “explore the biographies and narratives of a diverse array of scholar activists, examine the sociopolitical and economic forces shaping their work, and consider...

    Curt Schilling took on the Internet – and the entire Muslim world – on Tuesday and lost. Badly. The two-time National League strikeout king took to Twitter to voice his concern over Islamic extremism. He posted a photo of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler with the words, “It's said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go?” The 48-year-old also tweeted, “The math is staggering when you get to true (numbers).” Schilling, who won three World Series championships during his 20-year MLB career, deleted the post after 10 minutes. Currently working with...

    If a senior US senator can so quickly become the target of a widespread campaign of anti-Semitism from both the Right and the Left, we should all increase our vigilance. The social media site Twitter offers an extraordinary form of communication. But perhaps because of its scope and anonymity, it is also a hotbed of racism, bigotry and anti-Semitism. This has never been clearer than in the wake of Senator Chuck Schumer’s announcement that he will oppose President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. In doing so, Schumer became guilty of heresy in the eyes of many on the progressive...

    Stock markets around the world have been posting big losses for the last few days. The route was especially rough this morning, with the DOW Jones at one point falling 1,000 points in less than an hour. At the heart of the current slide is an issue which could impact many tech companies: economic weakness in China. Two weeks ago China's government made an aggressive move to devalue its currency. This followed several weeks of tumult in the Chinese stock market, during which the government had also interceded with force. Taken together, investors saw a Chinese market where growth was flagging. That...

    Radical feminist website RH Reality Check published a hit piece on Thursday against Holly O’Donnell, a whistleblower featured in several of the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of unborn babies’ organs and tissue. Sharona Coutts – a former reporter at ProPublica and the site’s vice president for “investigations and research” – revealed O’Donnell’s alleged sexual preferences, after finding her profile on the OKCupid dating website, as well as posts on other sites. Coutts’s hatchet job actually sparked a backlash among many liberals on Twitter and other online outlets, who accused the author of “slut shaming” the former StemExpress employee....

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may be dominating social media, but a new study has revealed that a vast percentage of his online following is legally incapable of voting. According to data collected by the social analytics company, Macromeasures, just 39.4 percent of the real estate mogul's Twitter followers are members of the voting-eligible population, as first reported by Forbes. The company analyzed a handful of GOP hopefuls, including Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker and Carly Fiorina. Among those Republican candidates, Trump carried the largest percentage of disenfranchised followers. In comparison, 95.7 percent of Fiorina's...

(name withheld at the request of relatives) seemed to further incense an already irate presidential candidate Donald Trump. The tweet: "He's a no good meanie” was sent from Billy's headquarters about 6 AM. Seemingly a commentary on Mr. Trump's often-flamboyant rhetoric, Billy’s Tweet was not well received. The night before Trump had mocked, not only Megyn Kelly, Eric Erickson and Roger Ailes but Jeb Bush and John the Baptist...

In January 2014, Sagehorn, using his personal Twitter account, sent a message reading "Actually, yeah" in response to an online question about whether he had "made out" with a 28-year old teacher at the school.

Clinton on Monday announced plans dubbed “the new college compact” to commit $350 billion over the next 10 years to make college more affordable, if elected president. Then, she took to Twitter to ask people to use emoji to describe their feelings about student loan debt. The thing is, she hasn’t gotten a whole lot of emoji responses. But most of all, her tweet seems to have backfired among most people on Twitter. Some noted that using sad faces, cats...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) is trying to intensify a fight with current Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. Paul's campaign on Monday announced a conference call with reporters specifically dedicated to Trump. During that call, Paul slammed the real-estate magnate for conducting a substance-less presidential campaign and making derogatory comments about women. "The truth telling is bluster, the truth-telling is non-sequitur, self-aggrandizement, but is there really anything substantive coming out of saying that people are fat, people are stupid?" Paul said of Trump. Calling Trump a "fake conservative," Paul listed off the issues where Trump has agreed with Democrats in the...

    Yesterday afternoon at Netroots Nation in Providence, RI, I attempted to ask the embattled Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) about his campaign, specifically his record as the deciding vote for Obamacare. Ohio voters passted an amendment to their constitution outlawing the Democrats' health care law by a wide margin in 2011: Ohioans overwhelmingly rejected the healthcare mandate provisions of Obamacare. They did this by handily passing an amendment to the state’s constitution that reads, in part, as follows: No federal, state, or local law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in...

Perhaps unbeknownst to her, the group she honored was founded by Muslim Brotherhood supporters....

The U.S. Treasury's current plan to put a woman on the $10 bill in 2020 includes keeping Alexander Hamilton on the banknote in some form.

    The British public has reacted with fury after footage of the Queen performing a Nazi salute as a young girl was published by The Sun.

    Count one former major leaguer who has made his conservative bona fides well known out of the Donald Trump camp. Curt Schilling, no stranger to vigorous Twitter debates over, among other things, evolution and trolls who came after his daughter, used the platform to take issue with the presidential candidate’s comments on the war record of Sen. John McCain, a prisoner of war during the Vietnam war. Schilling, whose Twitter page photos contain photos of a military cemetery and a serviceman, said he was crossing Trump off the Republican candidates he was considering.

    This led Trump to issue a blistering press release. “Mr. Trump is number one in the unimportant Huffington Post poll, along with all other recently released polls including Reuters, FOX, USA Today/Suffolk University and The Economist,” it points out. “If you read previously written Tweets [Ed. Note: We have], Mr. Trump has never been a fan of Arianna Huffington or the money-losing Huffington Post.”

    “We are treating this as an act of domestic terrorism,” said Bill Killian, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee. U.S. Attorney William C. Killian said.

(Washington Post) How ironic that it is Bill Killian – who was the most reluctant official to speak at today’s press conference. William Killian is the Department of Justice official who vowed to criminalize social postings on Facebook and Twitter.

    After a lengthy battle with the Ted Cruz campaign over whether or not his book sales were boosted by bulk purchases, The New York Times will include his newest book on their bestsellers list. Times’ editor Kate Phillips took to Twitter to announce the inclusion and to snark, “So much for our left-wing conspiracy.” The Times had been lambasted in recent weeks for excluding Cruz’s book “A Time for Truth,” even as outlets like Amazon and Barnes & Noble said they could find no evidence of bulk sales, and as other bestsellers lists that exclude bulk sales, like The Wall...

    A new Twitter campaign called #NoFlaggingChallenge is encouraging people around the nation to shoot video of themselves ripping Confederate flags off their poles and posts, and then put the film on the Internet for the world to see. Some are predicting the campaign – which basically urges people to trespass on private properties – won’t end well. “This #NolagginChallenge is going to end badly,” wrote one Twitter used, Twitchy found. And another: “PLEASE DON’T do this stupid #NoFlagging Challenge. You could get shot! No joke people are crazy enough to shoot you for it!” And a third: “please please be...
