the network that trumps tells people to watch that he says is better than fox, and probably the right wingers here listen to is funded by the russians with a kremlin staffer.

gee what a th and what they are not pointing out is such a false equivalency, a consensual affair vs an illegitimate president who did use the russians to subvert elections.

What will it finally take for newspapers to demand Trump resign—the way they did Bill Clinton?

Why would the Richmond Times Dispatch refuse to print an opinion piece by Herb Jones? Maybe because he’s a Democrat? Maybe because he’s running against Tommy Norment (the Republican Senate Majority Leader)? Maybe because they think it’s too well written for their readers?

I really don’t know, and can’t imagine. What kind of responsibility does a paper have to it’s readers, to citizens submitting opinions, or letters to the editor? I don’t really know the answer to that either. The best I’ve read on the role of print media has been this:

To be the backbone of the conscious of that society, to speak truth to power, and to help in any way that it can to maintain that society as a free society.

That was written by just some guy on the internet, not a founding father or anything, but I think the guy nailed it.

My city had two newspapers, one liberal, one conservative, and then the conservative paper bought the other one up. Still though, the conservative paper prints opinion pieces of all kinds, radical left to mainstream to far right. That seems fair. What doesn’t seem fair is to refuse to print the opinion piece submitted by Herb Jones.

The address for the Richmond Times Dispatch is 300 E. Franklin St, Richmond, VA. I’m going to suggest that as a reminder of what a free press should be used for, we donate some form of 300 to the Herb Jones campaign.

Donate
Herb is running in the 3rd Senate District so 3 just seems perfect. It could be $3, $30, $300, $3,000. Hell, you can donate $30,000, Virginia has no limits on campaign contributions, even from out of state. Let’s show this newspaper what we think of their refusal.

If you feel like calling the paper after you donate to Herb Jones, feel free, their phone number is (804) 649-6000.

This is the opinion piece the paper refused to publish:

As we have closed out July 2019, the month which marks the 400th anniversary of the oldest law-making body in the “New World” and enter the advent of the arrival of the first Africans to the shores of Virginia, I’ve reflected deeply upon how this great nation was formed and about the many sacrifices that have been made individually and collectively.

I thought about the sacrifices my parents made, and all those whose shoulders we stand on. I thought about my time wearing a uniform as the United States Soldier, and about those with whom I served during combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. I thought about those who returned and those who did not.

All of these reflections led me to consider those who I wish to represent, should I win in November — the citizens of the 3rd Senatorial District. I am disheartened by my conclusion that our current Senator, Mr. Norment, is in office only to enrich himself or his friends.

Norment’s infractions bring to mind the tyrannies of King George III, particularly on an anniversary such as the one of this past month. To paraphrase the Declaration of Independence: “He has a history of repeated injuries and usurpations” of the Commonwealth. “To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world:”

He has enriched himself at the expense of taxpayers as Commissioner of Accounts, earning over $250,000 per annum (appointed by a judge whom he appointed), and as a former adjunct professor at William & Mary, earning over $160,000 per annum.

He has submitted legislation to protect child pornographers but has failed to fight for firefighters and first responders, who put their lives at risk daily.

He has raised taxes, such that citizens of our district are subject to the highest sales tax in the Commonwealth.

For these injuries — and many others — I continue to be deeply embarrassed by our Senator’s behavior.

Herbert C. Jones, Jr.
Candidate, 3rd Senatorial District
Virginia State Senate

as we know twitter is owned by an ultra right-wing partisan, facebook had its employees at trump campaign HDQS the entire election helping trump and here we have a top lawyer from corporate verizon heading the FCC. And trump having his goons draft a proposal to take over the internet to stop free speech. He did not stop the russians and has said he will accept their interference in attacking America again to stop democracy.

notice they predominately put on fake experts from think tanks and the major think tanks are funded by ultra right wing trust fund kids that inherited all their money.

BBC makes a move that should be followed by every media outlet: Tell the truth about 'think tanks'

Mark Sumner

Quote:
How many representatives from so-called “think tanks” appear regularly on newscasts? It’s very, very difficult to tell. Because think tank representatives from groups like the American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, Ethics and Public Policy Center, and Federalist Society are rarely treated as “guests” on news shows. Instead, they’re brought on as analysts, commentators, and de facto hosts. Is Elizabeth Warren appearing a show this morning? Bring on the talking head from AEI to explain why she’s a socialist. Is Bernie Sanders talking about education? Let our friend from the Heritage Foundation explain why he’s all wrong.

The whole purpose of many of these think tanks is simply to assemble a roster of guests making it dead simply to find an “expert” on any topic that may be crossing a news desk. Need someone on gun control? We’ve got that. The Iran agreement? Top guys. Our relationship with Russia? You want the angry white guy, or the angry white guy with extra tweed?

These groups make it so simple for news programs of all sorts to find someone on a moment’s notice, that it saves them all the problem of looking up genuine experts. NPR’s morning news programs managed to tap someone from the Heritage Foundation over a hundred times in a single year. Because … why not? Think tanks give media outlets a welcome tinge of “independence” with their institutes, and centers, and foundations. They provide a pretense of independent analysis. And there is is absolutely no charge—except in the cost to delivering the truth on any topic.

That’s why this action from the BBC News is critically important. In a memo from the BBC Press Office, the news organization has announced that it will “not assume that contributors from think tanks are unbiased.” Even more importantly, when using speakers from think tanks, they will report on who funds the think tanks. In the case of the Heritage Foundation, that would be the Koch brothers. In the case of AEI, that would … also be the Koch brothers.

Few think tanks are genuinely independent. There are some. But many of those organizations do not provide pop-up analysts to fill a slow half hour on CNN. In addition, genuinely independent, fact-based groups would also benefit from the contrast with organizations that are just political parties going under another name.

gee if it was a liberal it would be all over the media front page and headlines and full month coverage on FUx... , but this is a right wing wacko...

She tried to convince her co-workers that not all gun owners are bad people, the News-Capital said.

An 18-year-old in McAlester, Oklahoma was arrested Monday after she told co-workers that she was allegedly planning to "shoot 400 people for fun" at her old high school.

Alexis Wilson was taken into custody by the Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office for a felony terrorist hoax, reported McAlester News-Capital, for threatening a mass shooting at McAlester High School.

Wilson had also shown co-workers pictures and videos of her holding an AK-47, saying to them that she wanted to gun down hundreds and "that there were so many people at her old school that she would like to do it.”

She tried to convince her co-workers that not all gun owners are bad people, the News-Capital said.

Wilson was expelled from McAlester High after being caught with a knife and a swastika at school multiple times. An affidavit obtained by NBC News says that she experienced bullying when she attended the school, and was unable to reenroll.

Deputies found an AK-47 and a shotgun in her bedroom, along with additional magazines for the assault rifle.

McAlester High School received extra security as a precaution to the threat, district Superintendent Randy Hughes told the News-Capital.

Wilson is currently being held on a $250,000 bond at the Pittsburg County Jail and could face up to 10 years in prison.

Here they go again, they do not want the truth about trump out. Impeachment will energize the dems and moderates that the dems can chew gum and walk at the same time. This paper was against Hilary all the way. They helped Bush with a lie to war with the CIA plant Judith Miller. again the CIA had over what 200 journalists on secret payroll and they only said that they would not hire so many. They specifically said they had the right to plant reporters into the media.

here is a good piece that found the NYT was claiming some of the so called swing voters were against impeachment, when they were hardcore right wingers. Shame on them,whoever wrote that and allowed it to print should be fired and sent to FUX. what is about 30-50% of Fux people came from CNN.
