There is much speculation about the author of the anonymous New York Times opinion article that broadsided the Trump presidency and claimed that there were resisters from within the president’s own administration who “have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.” Since then numerous Trump administration officials — Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and others — have put out statements denying that they are the author of the controversial op-ed which Trump blasted as “gutless” and the White House claimed was the act of a “coward.” However, on his CNN show on Thursday, Wolf Blitzer noted a big hint may be in who has not issued a denial, namely White House chief of staff John Kelly. “John Kelly issued a statement denying that he called the president an idiot in Bob Woodward’s book.

The Detroit News Published 12:15 p.m. UTC Sep 6, 2018 The Detroit News is republishing an op-ed column published by The New York Times on Wednesday written by an anonymous senior official in the administration of President Donald Trump. The Times today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers. The writer is a senior official in the Trump administration. President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader. More: Trump blasts critical op-ed from anonymous senior official It’s not just that the special counsel looms large. Or that the country is bitterly divided over Mr. Trump’s leadership.

x To be honest, I didn’t think I’d be publicly talking this much about Batman #50 until after the issue saw release, but since an article published by the New York Times spoiled it over the weekend, it’s become the hot topic in the comic book community. Though DC themselves did have their own justification for going through with this, the decision to do so has been met with much consternation online, with fans lashing out at the publisher as a whole, not to mention George Gene Gustines, who wrote the now infamous piece for NYT. From the sound of it, the majority of people want surprises preserved for their reading experiences. In the process, there emerged this erroneous assumption that Gustines somehow got his hands on an advance copy and took it upon himself to leak the information – and that’s not the case. When it comes to comics set to be released each Wednesday, most media outlets – us included – are given embargo … [Read more...] about New York Times Writer Regrets Headline That Spoiled Batman And Catwoman’s Wedding
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. He slammed Maggie Haberman, the lead reporter on a new story, and called a former aide quoted in the story as a "drunk/drugged up loser." The tweets were posted around the time Trump headed out of Mar-a-Lago, his resort where he has spent the entire week, for a trip to a nearby Trump golf property. It was the second day in a row the president spent at one of his own courses in South Florida. Trump appeared to be angered by a front-page Times story Saturday that examined his relationship with Cohen, … [Read more...] about Trump lashes out at New York Times over Michael Cohen coverage
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?
