Sinclair’s programming has also featured must-runs from Mark Hyman, a former Navy intelligence officer who was a corporate exec for Sinclair when he first went on air in 2001. Though he’s currently on leave, his segments in the past year included attacks on the Southern Poverty Law Center, The New York Times and a favorite scourge: college campuses (“Grow up, snowflake”). Another regularly featured Sinclair persona is Armstrong Williams, who has long hosted a weekend show – even during his tenure as campaign adviser to Ben Carson – to highlight such issues as the plight of persecuted evangelicals and the tyranny of the minimum wage. Weekends also allot space to Sharyl Atkisson, a former CBS correspondent who, among other things, has lent support to Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of being wiretapped by President Obama (Atkisson says Obama wiretapped her, too). This year, a new commentary segment, “Bottom Line With Boris,” … [Read more...] about Sinclair Broadcasting’s Hostile Takeover

The second reason is that a culture of intolerance, nastiness and intimidation now reigns in too many parts of the Party nationally and is sadly manifest within my own Constituency Labour Party (CLP) in Birkenhead.

Don’t buy into headlines generated for personal gain but seek the truth as I am doing. As I mentioned we have initiated two independent investigations to explore all claims and present objective findings. My pledge to you is that I will address the findings of these investigations fairly and honestly and work to make needed repairs and changes while ensuring we have an Academy that honors diversity, inclusion and a safe work environment for all concerned. … [Read more...] about Interim Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. Alleges Deborah Dugan Demanded “Millions” To Resign
Of course, Obama had opportunities to gain ground in South Carolina that Buttigieg lacks. Which is one reason why a clear loss in Iowa would suggest a very different path for him, and, in the most recent Register poll, Buttigieg dropped nine points — from a clear lead to, basically, a tie with the other three prime contenders. Behind the scenes, his advisers agree his organizer-and-volunteer army’s task now isn’t just to persuade the late deciders to listen to the candidate’s consensus-focused pitch; it must also stop his newest, least-committed backers — many of whom came onboard only in the past few months — from defecting, as both Warren and Biden strive to win them back. The campaign remains confident because of Buttigieg’s high favorability ratings among Iowans, but it understands keenly that the result in Iowa is often judged in the national media less by the final delegate count than by performances against expectations. … [Read more...] about One of These People Could Beat Trump, Right?
