When you finish your argument for great journalism with the NYT and the Post as your go to; I have a bit of a hard time believing that's what your really after. Both papers have a well known and self admitted leftist bias.

I also think your statement that Trump is doing some sort of irreparable harm to journalism is a chicken little statement.

I do agree that written news today is perhaps the strongest it's ever been; and certainly not for the reasons MDB stated.

Sorry, not sorry you read so deeply into a simple statement.

Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Kellyanne Conway spotted at Washington Post editor's Hamptons party with George Soros
by Anna Giaritelli | Jul 3, 2017, 9:25 AM

Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and Kellyanne Conway wined and dined with heavy hitters including Steven Spielberg, David Koch and George Soros at the home of Washington Post senior associate editor Lally Weymouth in the Hamptons on Sunday night.

...


George Soros is a pedophile demon worshiper who drinks blood and has a child sex traffic ring in the basement of a DC pizza joint!!!! Are Ivanka and Jared and Kellyanne compromised!?! Surely, just being in the orbit of Soros is what brought down Hillary, they must be just as complicit, right?

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren refused to take a DNA test mailed to her by Indian-American entrepreneur V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, who’s running against her for her U.S. Senate seat.

“I’m deeply saddened @SenWarren refused my thoughtful (gift-wrapped) Birthday Gift: the 23&me DNA Test Kit,” Ayyadurai tweeted Sunday. “Most unfortunate! #FakeIndian.”

"It was discovered"

LOL.

CNN blackmailed him into that "apology":


http://archive.is/o7izm#selection-1217.0-1217.277

"The meme was created purely as satire, it was not meant to be a call to violence against CNN or any other news affiliation," he wrote. "I had no idea anyone would take it and put sound to it and then have it put up on the President's Twitter feed. It was a prank, nothing more
...
After posting his apology, "HanA**holeSolo" called CNN's KFile and confirmed his identity. In the interview, "HanA**holeSolo" sounded nervous about his identity being revealed and asked to not be named out of fear for his personal safety and for the public embarrassment it would bring to him and his family.
CNN is not publishing "HanA**holeSolo's" name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.
CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.



And I especially enjoy the "conservative troll culture" comment. Like trolls are a partisan phenomena.

**** like this just shows how liberals love to get their panties in a bunch any time they are being mocked even a little, with their fake outrage and hurt feelz.

I can't emphasize how bad this is on CNN's part. This is basically "don't post stuff we don't like or we'll dox you." Extremely unethical.

I guess if that's the guy you want to defend, have at it.

When you say these things in a public forum don't you waive your right to a "reasonable expectation of privacy" under the law? If he had said the same downtown on 5th and main, could he complain that someone recognized him while he recited hate speech to illicit a reaction from his audience?

If that was graffiti, would it be vandalism or would it be a hate crime?

I know you guys think trolling is cool and stuff, but if his identity was released and he lost his job and was forced to follow around a record of saying despicable things to people for the rest of his life because of his conduct online... I wouldn't lose a wink of sleep. The way it is described, his identity was discovered through his reddit responses that corroborated his locations and experiences, not through any illegal or nefarious means.

It's the repercussions of Freedom of Speech. Everybody is entitled to their opinion, and when your opinion is known you have no defense if people don't like your opinion and choose to distance themselves from your speech. I've heard it described as "personal responsibility" by someone, can't quite remember who said it, tho.

It's not about the guy, sad you can't grasp that. Or should I say, "Won't graps that". Somehow I have the feeling if Fox did this to any of the multitudes of left-wing trolls, you'd see the issue right away.

Oh, and stop with the "you guys think trolling is cool". There are at least as many left wing trolls as right, probably a lot more. It's one of the few vestiges of true bipartisanship.

I miss the days when T_D was upset with CNN for NOT revealing their sources. Now they're upset because they MIGHT reveal a source. CNN is definitely their boogeyman.

More than 100 shot in violent Chicago Fourth of July weekend

Chicago Police respond to a shooting during a violent Fourth of July weekend in which more than 100 were reportedly shot CBS CHICAGO

CHICAGO -- At least 101 people were shot between Friday afternoon and early Wednesday in a violent 4th of July holiday weekend in Chicago, reports the Chicago Tribune. 15 of the victims died.

Nearly half were shot in a spate of violence as the weekend closed out between 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and 3:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Last year's Independence Day weekend, which was one day shorter than this year's, ended with 66 people shot, four of them fatally, reports CBS Chicago — a total that stoked cautious optimism with the lowest death toll for the July 4 weekend in nearly a decade.

The last time the Fourth of July holiday weekend spanned four full days was in 2013, reports the Tribune. At least 74 people were shot between Wednesday evening and early Monday and 12 of them died, according to data collected by the paper.

The shootings came as the department -- as has become standard procedure during long holiday warm weather holiday weekends -- put more than 1,000 extra officers on the street.

The violence this year was largely concentrated in the city's south and west sides, including districts where the Chicago Police Department have deployed extra resources including hundreds of officers on overtime.

The youngest person shot was a 13-year-old boy seriously wounded in Gage Park on Friday night, the paper reports.

The violent weekend brings the total number of people shot in Chicago so far in 2017 to more than 1,800, according to data maintained by the Tribune, still below the 2,035 recorded at this time last year.

On Saturday, Chicago Police touted a 14-percent decline in shootings this year compared to the first six months of 2016, and they hoped to tamp down the holiday weekend violence with the help of a new gun violence strike force that includes ATF agents, reports CBS Chicago.

So NPR tweeted out the entire Declaration of Independence yesterday... the replies from Trump supporters that have apparently never seen this document before are pretty hilarious. My favorite is the guy that thought NPR was calling for a revolution and condoning violence.

I was unable to locate the part of the tweet where the user identified as a Trump supporter. Oh...wait. You're just applying that label based on your own preconceived perceptions of all Trump supporters. And you and/or your pals here call conservatives Internet trolls. :roll:
