Fantastic video essay explaining how Fox has broken the news cycle - my only gripe is he doesn't explicitly says the oped side of Fox is the culprit.

I just watched Divide and Conquer, the documentary about Roger Ailes, a couple of days ago. It's informative in its history, if its psychoanalysis skates on thin ice.

Nothing to see here. Just the POTUS calling for a boycott of the parent company of a news organization he hates.

They're only #12 on the list of largest public companies worldwide. I'm sure they'll get right on that.

Well which is it, Mangerine? Is CNN the biggest source of news in the U.K., or are they dying in the ratings? It can't be both, you orange piece of shit.

He seriously has the cognitive capacity of a typical 3-year-old. With all apologies to typical 3-year-olds.


I will say that all CNN is more entertainment than journalism but it's not 100% entertainment yet.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoping
Stoping is the process of extracting the desired ore or other mineral from an underground mine, leaving behind an open space known as a stope.[1] Stoping is used when the country rock is sufficiently strong not to collapse into the stope, although in most cases artificial support is also provided.
I don't follow.

Also, let me get this straight. Trump wants the world to stope watching CNN because watching CNN isn't MAGA. I'm sure most of Europe gives two shits about you and your "If I make it public, it's not classified" approach to international intel and "If I don't like it's not longer an agreement" approach to... agreements... oh, and those little tarifs you want to declare as US interests every couple of weeks.

FWIW, AT&T stock is currently higher than when Trump suggested his boycott.

An interesting idea:
The IRS is complicated. So is running a 148-year-old newspaper in 2019.

Three weeks and one New York Times profile after announcing its shift to staffers and readers, Utah’s Salt Lake Tribune officially submitted its bid to the IRS to become a nonprofit May 30. The Tribune joins a small handful of newspapers in North America relying on nonprofit status (mostly by being owned by a nonprofit rather than being a nonprofit themselves), but it’s making a new case to the IRS.

“This ability to give to seek and share information that’s difficult for residents to do on their own is a fundamental purpose of journalism and it is fundamental of a 501(c)(3),
There are three ways to not tell the truth: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

To be honest the story isnt horrible but this sentence really makes it look like the NYT is kissing ass.

Forbes and The Hill are right-wing? The Hill runs opinions across the spectrum. I'd call Forbes center-right.

I recently read mention that Forbes as it now exists online is a pale shadow of the old business magazine. Apparently there's no real editorial intelligence there.
