Obganiating overactive outlets...

A really interesting analysis of press coverage from Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Trump's first 100 days. The image left (click to enlarge) will not surprise anyone! If anything it highlights that things are probably worse than some thought. Compare that to coverage of Obama's first 100 days.

Many will say "Hey look, Fox is most pro Trump" but what that really tells you is that Fox is the most balanced; this concurs with my impressions back in 2008 when Fox were the ONLY outlet giving balanced coverage; the rest was just full-time fawning over Obama; it was so obvious and blatant it was quite sickening.

"Donald Trump’s ongoing feud with the media is not the first time a president has felt wronged by the press"; the difference is that he has "taken the fight to the press, openly and with relish." It may appear wrong, even vulgar but I've seen people saying Trump is at fault because some people may believe the media fake news! FFS! "On national television, Trump was the topic of 41 percent of all news stories—three times the usual amount." 41%!!! This is just crazy; the relentless tsunami of negative news (mostly contriving or downright lies from Democrats and their lackeys with dual objectives: stain, damage, topple Trump and cover their own law-breaking.) is bad for the country and by extension, the rest of the world.

Some sound advice: "Journalists need to resist even the smallest temptation to see themselves as opponents of government. It’s the competition between the party in power and the opposing party, and not between government and the press, that's at the core of the democratic process."  "The press should also start doing what it hasn’t done well for a long time—focus on policy effects.", i.e. not just rabid coverage of 'Washington' infighting; also:
"Journalists would also do well to spend less time in Washington and more time in places where policy intersects with people’s lives. If they had done so during the presidential campaign, they would not have missed the story that keyed Trump’s victory—the fading of the American Dream for millions of ordinary people. Nor do all such narratives have to be a tale of woe. America at the moment is a divided society in some respects, but it’s not a broken society and the divisions in Washington are deeper than those beyond the Beltway."
Shouldn't really need saying. Fourth Estate, do your job.

Oustiti of our options...

...'unlocking' the reluctant voters' opinions, assuaging doubts. Blue Brexit not Brexit blues. Hugh Bennett BrexitCentral highlights the Government’s existing commitments on Brexit mentioned in the Conservative Party manifesto [PDF] plus "concrete pledges in further areas, including leaving the EU Customs Union and Common Fisheries Policy".

Plus leaving the single market, leaving the customs union, no ECJ, laws made in UK. Brexit means Brexit. Good.

Ominous omissions V...

Self explanatory and so true: the US media (and the BBC & C4 in the UK amongst others) simply cannot handle Trump. They are tying themselves in knots by reporting and spinning nothing as if it's fact and ignoring facts as if it's nothing. It would be funny (ha-ha) if it weren't so funny (peculiar). Sinister. Is there a journalist left at CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WaPo, BBC? None seem to do any reporting on actual news but content to chase rumours and known lies rather than do their job. Cunts.

Over others...

...über alles? Oops. Happy EU flag day. The Union Flag appears slightly higher...and is clearly apart from the EU one. :-)
Europe Day, also Schuman Day after Robert Schuman, one of the 'Fathers of Europe': "The Schuman Declaration was presented by French foreign minister Robert Schuman on 9 May 1950. It proposed the creation of a European Coal and Steel Community, whose members would pool coal and steel production. The ECSC (founding members: France, West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg) was the first of a series of supranational European institutions that would ultimately become today's "European Union". Worth remembering yesterday was VE Day and also all the countries that celebrate today (9th): Victory Day.

Outrageous obduracy; obvious omission...

Eager as ever to charge the UK for almost anything and everything ("EU leaders to insist UK pays its Brexit bills as precursor to trade talks") they are definitely making a quick, hard Brexit more likely. This will hurt the EU more than the UK; the stupid sinister spiteful EU cunts "diplomats" are almost literally intending to cut off their nose to spite their face.*

The EU are also already making their feelings clear: "you're gone": in THIS [PDF] paper (Reflection Paper on the Social Dimension of Europe) which was published last week has two telling maps on page 7 and page 9. We want to leave, they want us gone. Good.

For info the UK would have been in dark blue with an unemployment rate of 4.7.

* a perfect description of the EU 'diplomats' childish self-destructive huff. Cunts.
