Sarah Palin Suing New York Times For Defamation


By Daily Caller, June 27, 2017

Sarah Palin is suing The New York Times for defamation, according to documents filed in federal court Tuesday that were obtained by The Daily Caller.

The lawsuit has to do with an editorial the NYT ran on June 14 that falsely smeared Palin as inciting the 2011 shooting of Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords by a mentally ill man. There is no evidence to support the NYT’s implication that Palin played a role in inciting the Giffords shooting.

News Corp, Axel Springer Applaud $2.7 Billion Fine Levied Against Google


By Hollywood Reporter, June 27, 2017

Major media companies have a well-documented love-hate relationship with tech giants like Google and Facebook. While publishers rely on both companies for distribution, and share digital advertising revenue with both, there are some in the media industry who believe the companies are enjoying a one-sided relationship. Some of these companies have whispered quietly about taking collective action against Google and Facebook, but nothing has materialized yet in the U.S.

Considering the antipathy felt toward Google and Facebook, it didn't come as a total surprise that some companies that operate in Europe celebrated the announcement Tuesday that the European Commission has fined Google $2.7 billion for unfairly prioritizing in search results the company's own comparison shopping service.

CNN faced $100M lawsuit over botched Russia story


By NY Post, June 27, 2017

The specter of a $100 million libel suit scared CNN into retracting a poorly reported story that slimed an ally of President Trump’s — and forcing out the staffers responsible for it, The Post has learned.

The cable network’s coverage of Trump transition team member Anthony Scaramucci came amid federal scrutiny of corporate parent Time Warner’s pending purchase by AT&T — and the widespread belief among media execs that CNN President Jeff Zucker can’t survive a merger.

Nineteen Eighty-Gore! People Are Throwing Up, Fainting and Screaming at George Orwell Play on Broadway


By Heat Street, June 27, 2017

1984 was never going to have a breezy rom-com vibe on Broadway.  But the adaptation of George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian classic, which opened late last week in New York, is generating queasy responses from some audience members.

Some of them have been throwing up, fainting and screaming at the play’s extreme torture scenes, perpetrated by the totalitarian regime dedicated to suppressing critical dissent.

Obamas under fire from the left for never ending, sizzling ultra-luxury vacations


By Fox News, June 27, 2017

The Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats, according to Democrats and activists contacted by Fox News.

Ex-presidents, understandably and un-controversially, go on vacations immediately after leaving office. But the level of luxury the Obamas enjoy on their vacations is unprecedented for a modern-day president, say travel experts.

How news organizations, including this one, unintentionally misinformed the public on guns


By Dallas News, June 27, 2017

Steve Doud, a subscriber from Plano, emailed me to say he’d read something in the June 21 Dallas Morning News that couldn’t possibly be true.

An eight-paragraph Washington Post article on page 10A reported on a national study about kids and guns. The last sentence said 4.2 percent of American kids have witnessed a shooting in the past year.

111 terminally ill patients took their own lives in first 6 months of California right-to-die law


By LA Times, June 27, 2017

A total of 111 people in California took their own lives using lethal prescriptions during the first six months of a law that allows terminally ill people to request life-ending drugs from their doctors, according to data released Tuesday.

A snapshot of the patients who took advantage of the law mirrors what’s been seen in Oregon, which was the first state to legalize the practice nearly two decades ago. Though California is far more diverse than Oregon, the majority of those who have died under aid-in-dying laws in both states were white, college-educated cancer patients older than 60.

By Chicago Tribune, June 28, 2017

Illinois Lottery players should prepare for a bit of deja vu — with a twist — if Illinois leaders don't pass a budget by Friday night.

Not only will the popular Powerball and Mega Millions tickets be off the shelf, but also any big winners of any of the other draw or instant games will have to wait to collect their cash.

Podesta Meets With House Intelligence Panel Behind Closed Doors


By Bloomberg, June 27, 2017

The House Intelligence Committee met behind closed doors Tuesday with John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chairman, amid complaints by President Donald Trump that the Obama administration didn’t do enough to counter Russian interference in the U.S. election.

Podesta’s email account was hacked, as was the Democratic National Committee’s. Many of those emails were then leaked, producing a steady, negative and sometimes embarrassing stream of news about Clinton’s campaign. But the Democrats didn’t cooperate fully with U.S. investigators.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS Colin Kaepernick Has New Negative Leaks Emerge from 49ers over Work Ethic


By Bleacher Report, June 22, 2017

A San Francisco 49ers staffer has once again shed a negative light on former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, questioning his work ethic and desire to play football.

“As one Niners employee explained it, Kaepernick wouldn’t stay late at the facility during the season like many quarterbacks routinely do, saying he’d take work home,” Albert Breer of TheMMQB wrote. “And there were examples where coaches saw what looked like shoddy prep surfacing in inexplicable mental errors in games. Another staffer, asked if he thinks Kaepernick wants to keep playing, answered, ‘I do think he wants to play—to stay relevant.'”
