Why do we believe anything any of them say?
Yer boy Donny lies incessantly. How do you believe anything he says? His lies are easily and constantly proven to be lies. Yet Trumpkins persist in supporting him. Clearly they are cultists.

I bet our boy Whell swooned when he heard that.
Why the hell would Fox come to the defense of other news outlets that have been ripping Fox News for years??

The city that never sleeps finds that it’s running out of reporters to report

Staff slashed by the same owner that almost destroyed the LA Times. Tragic.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...c38_story.html

The colorful Daily News, long known for its attention-grabbing covers and headlines, employed 400 journalists when investigative reporter Tom Robbins started there in 1988, with bureaus scattered throughout the city’s boroughs. At its peak, it published about 3 million copies a day.

With its latest retreat, the money-losing tabloid will have a newsroom staff of just 45, according to people at the paper. It closed its bureaus in an earlier cost-cutting move in 2015.

“It’s astonishing that this is happening in the media capital of America,” said Robbins, now a journalist in residence at City University of New York. “Local news is a direct link between a community’s safety and preservation, whether it’s putting a spotlight on the need for a new stoplight on the corner or on a corrupt city council person. We don’t have the legs to do that in New York anymore. The community doesn’t have the watchdogs it once had.”

So sad and unfair that the FCC wouldn’t approve the Sinclair Broadcast merger with Tribune. This would have been a great and much needed Conservative voice for and of the People. Liberal Fake News NBC and Comcast gets approved, much bigger, but not Sinclair. Disgraceful!

Yes, you are disgraceful, Donny. Great news that the disgustingly biased Sinclair can't consolidate more power.

WASHINGTON — On the first couple’s recent trip overseas, Melania Trump’s television aboard Air Force One was tuned to CNN. President Trump was not pleased.

He raged at his staff for violating a rule that the White House entourage should begin each trip tuned to Fox — his preferred network over what he considers the “fake news” CNN — and caused “a bit of a stir” aboard Air Force One,
according to an email obtained by The New York Times. The email, an internal exchange between officials in the White House Military Office and the White House Communications Agency last Thursday, also called for the ordering of two additional televisions to support Beam, a TiVo-like streaming device, to make sure the president and first lady could both watch TV in their separate hotel rooms when they travel.

At the end of the email chain, officials confirmed that tuning the TVs to Fox would be standard operating procedure going forward.

I thought "authoritarian" folks like Trump would have just directed their Justice Dept to approve such a merger.

He can't order the FCC to do so. The FEC needs to follow the law (the Administrative Procedures Act, among other applicable laws.)) Your Dear Leader can only whine and tweet about it (which he did).
