Trump-Russia Story Is a Threat to FOX News’s Ratings Dominance (Goes to the Chicago Tribune)

The stream of negative headlines for President Trump about his campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia and the firing of FBI Director James Comey is shaking up the cable news ratings race.

Last week, MSNBC won all five weekdays over CNN and Fox News in prime time, according to Nielsen data. The NBC-owned network, led by “The Rachel Maddow Show,” now the No. 1 show in cable news with an average nightly viewership of 2.9 million viewers last week, became the go-to destination for viewers transfixed by the unfolding investigation into the White House scandal.

Too bad most of the residents have already voted. That’s why I prefer waiting to election day, if possible, to vote, in case something unexpected occurs. On the other hand, because I frequently work for a candidate on election day (Brad Schneider the past 3 cycles), I often find myself voting early.

The GOP will play it as a win no matter what happens. If the thug loses Fox will say it’s because the fake media made up a story out of nothing on the eve of the election.

If the thug wins they’ll credit Trump for showing it’s ok to physically attack people who annoy you, a message that really strikes home with his supporters.

Regarding The Major…Eric the Fruit Bat.

I did a graphic for him a few days ago for his “The Major” project, which is how I understood it, a project to take on internet lying sites, fake news, etc.

Well, it appears The Major got a little over zealous with his new identity last night and got some people rather upset.

He apparently is lingering as he is aware of some of the discussion about him today.

He contacted me and wanted me to pass on this message in a private box. This will be the only time I will do this for him. He could say this himself. He still has posting credentials here as far as I know.

Figured out the bowing thingy in Saudi Arabia. There’s two parts to the show. The first is it’s always a necklace that’s being awarded, no badges to be pinned on a suit. Second, it’s all-ways the shortest Saudi in the room who presents the award. With this combination, the award recipient almost always has to bow down to receive the award.

What makes Trump truly different from all of the other presidents is that he runs his administration like a publicly traded company. He only cares about short term (profits). Every other president had some eye on what the long term affects of their presidency would be, and how they would be thought of in the future.

Not public, private. Trump could never pull the shit he does in a public company.

Higher turnout for Republican voters in non-presidential years though. And it’s not like he lost big in 2016.

All there is to it, really, is “power will do what it will.” It’s why I keep thinking about DeSade.

They’ve built a religion where their material success means they’re blessed, and that their cruelty is actually part of a larger cosmic justice because poor people aren’t praying right.

They’ve built an economic system that doesn’t reward innovation…or even growth…but rewards mountebanks and frauds. And if you’re duped, it’s because you’re a lesser type of person.

They’ve built a system of sexual ethics where…well, I don’t even want to fucking get into it. There’s a bit in The Handmaiden’s Tale where Offred is taken to a party where the leaders make their handmaidens dress up and act sexy, and the bit pretty much covers the sexual hypocrisy of the current GOP.

And to hammer home what I think is a useful observation: none of them, included milquetoastian prevaricators like David Brooks, are actually “conservative” in any dictionary sense. They’re just wearing the label like a merkin.

I can very well imagine that some of them are looking for ways to avoid charging Gianforte with assault and battery, or any crime. I also think the only reason they haven’t been successful in avoiding investigating the matter is because there were other reporters at the event who witnessed the attack.

How much of this is based on Gianforte having more money that God. I think he’d be getting treated this way (hands off) even if he wasn’t running for office.

Depends. Montana has shitty law enforcement in general.

There was a cyclist who tried to ride her bicycle from Cleveland to Seattle, but got hit head-on by a guy who was not only out of his mind on drugs, but didn’t have a drivers license, either. (The car he drove belonged to his parents.) No arrest, no charges, nothing.

Said cyclist has been able to slowly recuperate and finally traveled (by plane) to Seattle to be with her fiancée. But she may never be the same.

Turns out there is a precedent for this kind of behavior by a Republican in Montana. When Teddy Roosevelt was working his ranch there in the 1880s, a rawhide tough cowpoke just off the range accosted him in a local saloon and called him “Four eyes” for his use of corrective lenses. Roosevelt, a college wrestler and early proponent of systematic body building, picked the lout up and threw him through the saloon’s front window. Roosevelt, however, was fined $20 and forced to pay for the window, a very pricey for the time $250.
I guess the local sheriff was not a political ally.

In 2014 and 2016, Gianforte donated $170 to Republican state Rep. Theresa Manzella, who not only endorsed the armed occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, but connected her praise to an armed anti-government wing of the Tea Party. Manzella described the occupation on her Facebook page:

The movement has begun. The people are taking a stand and making their point in no uncertain terms. They fully intend to reclaim the public land for multiple use on behalf of the state, as is prescribed in our Constitution. I applaud their determination. They are definitely the Three Percent.

Earlier this evening I conducted a press conference about an incident that occurred at Greg Gianforte’s campaign headquarters. After the press conference it was brought to my attention that people were commenting on a contribution that I made to the Gianforte campaign. I did contribute $250.00 on March 23, 2017. This contribution has nothing to do with our investigation which is now complete.

Following multiple interviews and an investigation by the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office it was determined there was probable cause to issue a citation to Greg Gianforte for misdemeanor assault (MCA 45-5-201). The nature of the injuries did not meet the statutory elements of felony assault. Greg Gianforte received a citation on Wednesday night and is scheduled to appear in Gallatin County Justice Court between now and June 7, 2017.

45-5-201. Assault. (1) A person commits the offense of assault if the person:

(a) purposely or knowingly causes bodily injury to another;

(b) negligently causes bodily injury to another with a weapon;

(c) purposely or knowingly makes physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with any individual; or

(d) purposely or knowingly causes reasonable apprehension of bodily injury in another.

(2) A person convicted of assault shall be fined not to exceed $500 or be imprisoned in the county jail for any term not to exceed 6 months, or both. ######

(a) purposely or knowingly causes bodily injury to another;
(b) negligently causes bodily injury to another with a weapon;
(c) purposely or knowingly makes physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with any individual; or
(d) purposely or knowingly causes reasonable apprehension of bodily injury in another.
(2) A person convicted of assault shall be fined not to exceed $500 or be imprisoned in the county jail for any term not to exceed 6 months, or both.

I’m not so sure this is “white privilege” as it is “conservative privilege.” Sinclair stations would be howling from the rafters if it was a conservative reporter assaulted by a liberal politician.

Too bad the rest of the nation is going to get to experience what we here have (Sinclair and FOX stations) if Sinclair acquires the Tribune group.

(1) A person commits the offense of aggravated assault if the person purposely or knowingly causes serious bodily injury to another or purposely or knowingly, with the use of physical force or contact, causes reasonable apprehension of serious bodily injury or death in another.
(2) A person convicted of aggravated assault shall be imprisoned in the state prison for a term not to exceed 20 years and may be fined not more than $50,000

It would appear the severity of assault charges in Montana are decided by police right there and then based on their own personal interpretation of the situation. That, to me, indicates a lot of unreported domestic violence, or the shit that does get reported is swept under the rug rather quickly. I’ve lived in my fair share of small towns in the inner mountain west, I’ve seen it happen over and over, since I was a little kid.

Here is another look:

A person commits the offense of aggravated assault if the person purposely or knowingly causes serious bodily injury to another person. Serious bodily injury is a physical injury that creates a substantial risk of death. An example of aggravated assault includes physical contact, such as a beating, that places the victim in critical condition or in a coma.

Aggravated assault also occurs when the physical contact results, or can reasonably be expected to result, in serious permanent disfigurement, such as severe facial scars due to boiling water or acid, or extended loss of a part of one’s body or organ. The loss must be more than temporary, but not necessarily permanent. For example, losing one’s spleen after a knife wound to the abdomen, or having to amputate a finger after a bruising fight, would support a charge of aggravated assault.

If the harm is mere “bodily injury,” such as physical pain or the temporary impairment of a physical condition, the charge is likely to be a misdemeanor.
(Mont. Code Ann. §§ 45-5-202, 45-2-101.)

So according to Montana law, the charge seems to be appropriate.

A Pryor man who admitted molesting the older sister of a teenager he previously sexually assaulted was sentenced to time served in U.S. District Court in Billings on Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge Susan Watters, in sentencing Fred Smart Enemy Jr., 73, followed a plea agreement that recommended time served. The judge also imposed a lifetime of supervised release as requested by the prosecutor and ordered him to register as a sex offender.

Smart Enemy, who has spent about nine months in federal custody, has about three years remaining on a state sentence for his conviction for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl in the Wal-Mart parking lot in February 2015.

Misogyny ain’t new either, from the same edition of the Chicago Tribune:

Chicago, Sept. 1.

To determine [whether] women were [better]-looking than men I recently made a cursory Inspection of bathers at two of Chicago’s popular beaches. The results amazed Me. About 5,000 men and women were checked. I found 60 per cent of the men well balanced in form and face. flut I found not over 4 per cent of the women equally well balanced. The vast majority of the women were hideously , with barrel shaped torsos, or afflicted with other degrees of ugliness that only a loving child or Iovesick sweetheart could overlook.

This experience convinced me that women were justified In doing everything Possible to Improve their appearances. It also convinced me that trouscrs [sic], slacks, pajamas, and shorts were clothes a woman should not wear In public If she hopes to maintain the wholesome respect and admiration of men. The only approach to trousers a woman or girl should desire to wear In public are shorts and they only on the beaches.

If anything, voting rights advocates find themselves in a far worse position than abortion rights supporters were in earlier this decade. The Supreme Court is sending loud signals to conservative lawmakers that those lawmakers have broad leeway to suppress the vote. Republicans, meanwhile, are receiving those signals loud and clear — as is evidenced by the wide away of voter suppression laws enacted in the states.

Just as surely as TRAP laws shut down abortion clinics, voter ID laws also achieve their own not-so-well hidden purpose: keeping certain voters from the polls. Voter ID disproportionately targets students, low-income voters, and people of color, all of whom are likely to prefer Democrats over Republicans. Though studies disagree on just how much they shift the electorate to the right, the most dramatic findings indicate that “Democratic turnout drops by an estimated 8.8 percentage points in general elections when strict photo identification laws are in place,” as opposed to 3.6 percentage points for Republicans.

Fucking Facebook bros.

How Facebook flouts Holocaust denial laws except where it fears being sued

Now, to be clear, I oppose the anti-HD laws. But Facebook is a private company. Why does it support denial “freedom” on its own private territory?

The argument that the HD contributes “to an open and connected world” is ridiculous.

Someone tell me again why I should bother with Faceplant or Twit accounts? I don’t watch FOX News Channel because they might have an occasional good show (that and I don’t own a TV). Why should I give my information to Twizzler and Faceborg to put up with that sort of nonsense, rewarding them with advertising revenue?

Well, I do read them. I just won’t create an account in either place. A military analogy might be “masking” (where your line bypasses a strongpoint and cuts it off).

You know if millions of Facebook posters said “enough, I’m leaving” they would change their policies.

Reporting content is obviously not enough. Hitting a corporation in the wallet is what works (which is why FOX’s advertisers are headed for the exits).

I guess it depends on whether a person is willing to put up with Holocaust denialism, misogyny, harassing groups, &c for convenience.

Note it was not complaints to Cloudfront that got them to pitch Andrew Anglin’s Website off their servers. Daily Stormer’s content was a clear violation of their terms of service, and years of complaints accomplished squat.

It was when businesses and Website owners said “enough, no more” and headed for the exits that Cloudfront made their move.

Facebook and Twitter will do nothing until their users say “enough, no more” and head for the exits.

How a dubious Russian document influenced the FBI’s handling of the Clinton probe

Current and former officials have said that Comey relied on the document in making his July decision to announce on his own, without Justice Department involvement, that the investigation was over. That public announcement — in which he criticized Clinton and made extensive comments about the evidence — set in motion a chain of other FBI moves that Democrats now say helped Trump win the presidential election.

But according to the FBI’s own assessment, the document was bad intelligence — and according to people familiar with its contents, possibly even a fake sent to confuse the bureau. The Americans mentioned in the Russian document insist they do not know each other, do not speak to each other and never had any conversations remotely like the ones described in the document. Investigators have long doubted its veracity, and by August the FBI had concluded it was unreliable.

My regional newspaper is reporting this morning on the alleged assault by Greg Gianforte of a Guardian reporter.

The Scottsbluff Star-Herald reports the facts straight as they are currently known, including part of the statement by the FOX News reporters, until you get to the end of the article:

The Guardian is a British liberal newspaper that opened a U.S. edition 10 years ago.

No, boneheads, they are not a liberal newspaper. They are a newspaper. Liberal/conservative doesn’t even apply in the same way in the United Kingdom as it does here - but I’m guessing you’re counting on the folk who live round here with no other source for news than FOX to not know that.

You guys are in fact a conservative newspaper though.

prohibits the State Board of Education (SBOE) from adopting Common Core State Standards;
prohibits school districts from using Common Core State Standards to meet the requirements to provide instruction in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS);
prohibits a school district or open enrollment charter school from being required to offer the Common Core; and

Rude Pundit wasn’t the only person who penned a missive painting Roger Ailes as a hateful, evil man. Monica Lewinsky did the same in the New York Times.

Roger Ailes’s Dream Was My Nightmare

(more at the link)

This is not another obituary for Roger Ailes, who died last week 10 months after being ousted at Fox News. It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally.

Just two years after Rupert Murdoch appointed Mr. Ailes to head the new cable news network, my relationship with President Bill Clinton became public. Mr. Ailes, a former Republican political operative, took the story of the affair and the trial that followed and made certain his anchors hammered it ceaselessly, 24 hours a day.

It worked like magic: The story hooked viewers and made them Fox loyalists. For the past 15 years, Fox News has been the No. 1 news station; last year the network made about $2.3 billion.

The reality given to us is corporations permit hate speech (Facebook, Cloudfront, FOX News Channel). The response is to deny them advert money.

No one has done that with Facebook. As for FOX and Cloudfront, that has worked.

Warfare may be a racket, but it is not a business that will immediately suffer if half their customers leave.

Facebook survives because no one cares, it’s too convenient. Heaven forfend I pick up a telephone or write a letter to inform my family about what’s going on.

When enough people realise they don’t need Facebook or Twitter to survive and choose to use other means of communication, they will comport themselves properly or die in the market. That is how capitalism works, and that is why FOX is upside down in the ratings and advert dollars.

Not purist. I don’t give my money to corporations that allow a platform for hate speech, Nazis, Holocaust denialism, &c.

I suppose you can choose my capitalist choice on where I spend my money as purism if you wish.

Facebook and Twitter are no different than any other corporations. They respond to profits.

Remember what drove advertisers away from Rush Limbaugh? It was an organised boycott of the advertiser companies that placed adverts on his show.

What is driving FOX News advertisers away? People telling those advertisers they won’t buy their products any more.

One letter was all it took for me to get my state lottery bureau to stop advertising on the Rush Limbaugh Show. I pointed out I would not buy lotto tickets if the state was going to advertise on a show that promotes hatred and division.

Within a week I got a response saying they had reviewed my complaint and agreed with it and pulled all their adverts in the state.

But you can call that purism if you wish. I suppose I could be sending money to Free Republic rather than Little Green Footballs just to make sure I am not painted as a purist.

You don’t need Facebook, you simply find it convenient. Well, that convenience comes with Holocaust denial covered by the company. I’ll take my purism, thanks.

It was released in the press Facebook training materials that they will only take Holocaust denial seriously in countries that actively pursue criminal action (eight countries). They will ignore complaints from others.

Work from within? Facebook actively blocks content offensive in nations like Turkey and Pakistan, and is working hard to block content in China with the hope of entering the market there.

And you call me a purist for not wanting to support that? Fine, I’m a purist. I didn’t sell my non-existent soul for convenience of giving all my private data to a corporation so they can give a platform to people like David Duke and Richard Spencer.

He defriended a whole pile of ex-students (me included) a few years ago, and I finally decided to check his page (after a comment on a mutual friend’s post served as reminder). Yes, you guessed it - full-blown trump support and rants about all those evil libruls out to oppress people with political correctness. There were also posts to his wall from another trumpchump who said McCarthyism from the 50s was justified because “durr hurr, Hollywood Communists blacklisted people first!” and that The Crusades were actually defensive in nature and also justified.

Ex-college instructor liked both of them.

Far from abandoning trump, the ones who supposedly voted for him with noses held are doubling down because durr hurr, mean libruls advocating for diversity and against racism made them do it.

Tried, Calc looked different just a few days ago, and yes, you can only resize to a certain point.

But a couple days ago, that certain point was like less than half the size it is now.

Then again, there was that state assembly election in NY won by a progressive former Bernie delegate in a district that had gone overwhelmingly for trump. Then again again, NY is a blue state overall, so maybe that had some subliminal impact?

I don’t know. I’ll believe the tide is turning when I see GOPers losing in red districts in red states and not a moment sooner.

A quick google search seems to indicate that you’re computer might have gotten in tablet mode. Over by the clock, hover over the buttons until you see one called “Action Center”. (I’m typing this from a Win7 machine, so I can’t figure out the exact details). That should have a button indicating the mode you’re in.

There are red districts in blue states. Those count too.

re: #577 ObserverArt

If it was a casual greeting Trump would at least look at the person he is slapping on the arm. Since he did not even acknowledge the guy with a look and maybe a smile it was a shove. He does everything but look at the guy.

More normalizing The Monster Trump.

I don’t even know what the fuck that was. It could have been a greeting. But it’s more in the bully, Trump hand-shake mode. Seeing the reaction from the Montenegro PM, he didn’t look like he thought it was a chummy greeting.

Ha! There are many on the other side who don’t get why the USA is considered a leader and why our outsized contributions* in some places makes the world marginally safer.

*Though defense spending for NATO has direct benefits to US arms makers.

Guy gets hit by a car. Cop asks about his immigration status before offering him medical aid.
