David Nakamura, The Washington Post Published 8:21 am, Saturday, April 21, 2018 PALM BEACH, Fla. - President Donald Trump vowed Saturday that his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, will not "flip" and cooperate against him in the special counsel investigation into his campaign's connections to Russia, attacking a New York Times story as part of a "witch hunt" against him. In several morning tweets, Trump also lashed out against the Times over its coverage of the investigation.

The New York Times and The New Yorker will share the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Public Service Journalism for their reporting of the Harvey Weinstein story that helped launch the #MeToo movement, Pulitzer Administrator Dana Canedy announced during a ceremony at Columbia University in New York City on Monday. Back in October, both The Times and The New Yorker ran stories reporting on Weinstein’s alleged sexual harassment and assault. Weinstein’s spokesperson has repeatedly denied the veracity of the claims, however, the impact of the women’s stories spread far beyond Hollywood and helped spark the #MeToo movement, encouraging those who were impacted by sexual violence and harassment to join a growing chorus of those speaking out against the abuse. The Public Service winners were among the wide range of publications that competed with more than 2400 submissions to snag a coveted prize ranging from The Santa Rosa Press Democrat for their prize in Breaking News … [Read more...] about New York Times, New Yorker Win Pulitzer Prize for Bombshell Reports on Harvey Weinstein
Journalism’s top prize was awarded Monday to The New York Times and The New Yorker for reporting that sparked the #MeToo movement.

New York Times is backtracking on their previously expressed commitment to use the word “torture” when referring to torture. This apparent refusal comes after the CIA’s torture program has long been described accurately–including by the New York Times. And the illegal nature of the CIA program–that is, its violation of various U.S. laws and treaties–has been thoroughly established. A prominent article from Wednesday evening reports on the checkered past of Mike Pompeo, President Donald Trump‘s nominee to replace outgoing Rex Tillerson as the administration’s secretary of state. While citing some of the opposition to Pompeo’s appointment, the Times categorizes torture in the following way: Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, has vowed to vote against him in part because of Mr. Pompeo’s past support for enhanced interrogation techniques that have been likened to torture. This isn’t the first time the New York Times … [Read more...] about Torture is a Legal Term. Why Does the New York Times Refuse to Acknowledge it?
