LA Times editorial board calls for Trump's impeachment

LA Times endorses impeachmentThe editorial board of the Los Angeles Times called for President Trump's impeachment in a Saturday op-ed after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) this week said that committee chairmen should begin drafting articles of impeachment.

The paper's board, in a piece titled "We’ve seen enough. Trump should be impeached," argued that the evidence produced during the House's probe is "more than sufficient to persuade us that he should be impeached."

The board first noted that it was "reluctant convert to the impeachment cause" because of its possible divisiveness and the likelihood that Trump will be acquitted by the Senate.

Trump's decision to exclude Bloomberg reporters draws fire

Brad Parscale

News organizations reacted warily to the Trump campaign's announcement Monday that it will no longer credential Bloomberg News reporters for campaign events in response to the outlet’s decision not to investigate its owner, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, or his Democratic rivals for president.

Trump Campaign manager Brad Parscale said the move, which Bloomberg News said would ensure equal footing for each Democratic candidate, indicated a bias against Trump because the outlet would continue to cover him critically while going easy on his Democratic rivals.

Shepard Smith decries 'press vilification' in first speech since leaving Fox News

Shepard Smith


Shepard SmithFormer Fox News anchor Shepard Smith railed against authoritarian governments who are making it difficult and dangerous for a free press in his first public words since leaving the network last month.

Smith, a frequent on-air Trump critic during his Fox tenure, urged for press protection in his passionate speech as host of the 2019 International Press Freedom Awards on Thursday in New York City.

"Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomena," said Smith, alluding to, but never mentioning, President Donald Trump in his speech. "We don’t have to look far for evidence of that."

Trump urges media to report whistleblower's name

Trump urges media to out whistleblowerPresident Trump on Sunday said the media should name the whistleblower behind a complaint about his dealings with Ukraine and that such reporting would be "doing the public a service."

"The whistleblower gave a very inaccurate report about my phone call. My phone call was perfecto. It was totally appropriate. He gave a report — he or she, but according to the newspapers it's a he," Trump told reporters.

"They know who it is. You know who it is. You just don't want to report it. CNN knows who it is, but you don't want to report it. And you know, you would be doing the public a service if you did," he added.

The whistleblower's identity is not public. Trump did not give evidence for his claim that CNN or newspapers know the person's identity.

Facebook includes Breitbart in new 'high quality' news tab

Mark Zuckerberg inclueds Breitbart among trusted news

Facebook’s launch of a new section on its flagship app dedicated to “deeply-reported and well-sourced” journalism sparked immediate controversy on Friday over the inclusion of Breitbart News, a publication whose former executive chairman explicitly embraced the “alt-right”.

Facebook News is a separate section of the company’s mobile app that will feature articles from about 200 publishers. Friday’s launch is a test and will only be visible to some users in the US.

The initiative is designed to quell criticism on two fronts: by promoting higher quality journalism over misinformation and by appeasing news publishers who have long complained that Facebook profits from journalism without paying for it. The company will pay some publishers between $1m and $3m each year to feature their articles, according to Bloomberg.

White House to cancel Times, Post subscriptions after Trump's 'Hannity' comments

WH cancels NYT and WaPo

The White House said Tuesday it will not be renewing subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post, two papers the president frequently attacks as “fake” and which he suggested canceling the previous night in a TV appearance.

Monday on Fox News’ “Hannity,” President Donald Trump called the Times “a fake newspaper” and said “we don’t even want it in the White House anymor

“We’re going to probably terminate that and The Washington Post,” Trump said. “They’re fake.”

Trump’s “terminate” remarks were interpreted by journalists on Twitter as meaning canceling paper subscriptions, rather than kicking reporters out of the White House. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham confirmed to POLITICO that he was talking about subscriptions, “which we won’t be renewing.”’

Fox News alum Carl Cameron worried Shepard Smith's exit could turn channel into 'propaganda'

Carl Cameron

Carl Cameron, a former Fox News reporter who was with the channel for more than 20 years, is voicing his concerns after Shepard Smith shocked by announcing his departure Friday.

Cameron, who says his "Campaign Carl" moniker came courtesy of Smith, appeared on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday to discuss the impact his former colleague's exit may have on the channel.

"There are an awful lot of really good journalists at Fox News Channel. It's just that they're vastly outnumbered by the opinion makers, and the opinion makers are more interested in playing to people's bias than anything else," said Cameron. "And it makes it very difficult for journalists to actually give people honest facts when the air time is shrinking constantly."
