he seemed to say it supported the case for a public figure to sue newspapers for defamation, whereas it actually made it more difficult. Jimmyk, both are true. A public figure can sue a newspaper -- there is no blanket protection from the First Amendment -- but the standard of proof for malice is higher.

Frau, as I laid into the AP version of the #dinnergate story, Frau, our new state AP rep said I “crossed the line”. No, I replied, AP had crossed the line. I proceeded in chapter and verse to explain why. The I explained that by dwelling on this noise, and overlooking the real news, much of the MSM was running close to becoming #dishonestMedia. The AP rep didn’t appreciate what he felt was a threat to write about AP in an editorial. I replied that it was no threat, it was a fact. I owed it to my readers to explain what they needed to know and that I had done it before. Subject of the email: AP has jumped the shark.

CH, just Facebooked and tweeted your link with the comment: For a fun time, circle the adjectives in an Associated Press article and then ask someone to identify the point of view of the writer. Well, okay. It is not a fun time. We hire these people to report to us.

Porch: The election is2018 is less the issue than who could and should be primaried with strong sensible candidates. Merely holding office should not be a get-out-of-jail free card for Republicans or Democrats.

We have to stand as one. Mistaken premise that “we” are “one”. We should be, but I’ll be darned if the GOPe has successfully explained to me how they are different from Democrats who misunderstand both economics and political theory. If someone is not capable of explaining a good reason for policy, it is more dangerous to leave them with their hands on the levers of government than it is to begin to move them out to pasture.

President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that he intends on eating lunch with Republican Senators to discuss health care reform. Collusion!

Claude Cattermole "Catsmeat" Potter-Pirbright! What a great name. Congrats, Catsmeat. I appreciate your new book. You may not believe it, but it is fun for a non-academic to read because it is thorough, well-documented, and accessible. Definition: An expert -- someone who explains things so clearly even we can understand.

Dear AP: AP and the MSM have jumped the shark. There were 80 people at the dinner. Pictures on twitter show dozens of people. The press was there. photographers were there. And yet AP writes an article where none is needed. AP writes in a stilted style to avoid saying there is no there thereWASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump had another, previously undisclosed conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit in Germany this month.Trump is right: SAD! AP has yet to say that talking to Russians is not a crime. Collusion is not a crime. Hillary engaged in more, including the transfer of hundreds of thousands of dollars. I am going to start writing editorials describing AP’s coverage, apologizing for it, or maybe even laughing at you.
He thinks that the progressives are winning. Barbara, The progressives can’t win because what they advocate is unstable and unsustainable.

Most apple pies do not meld the crust and the apple well. Less risk making a cobbler or an apple compote with shortbread or crust-like cookies on the side. Top off with fresh, home-made whipped cream and the eyes glaze over, as they should.

If you are cursed with too much IQ, you should definitely read this article, because it will shave off at least ten points. Fortunately, I stopped reading early on. BS indicator gonging too loud for me to focus on the rest of the article.

Cynical? This is what I wrote AP this morning:I despair that AP will ever learn, or even cares to do so. Perhaps rather than correcting AP articles we should add at the end what it is that AP tried to do so that readers will understand what they would have been fed. Imagine if we added: “The AP called the proposed coverage ‘skimpy’ when in fact it was designed specifically to cover severe and high cost health problems that could otherwise bankrupt subscribers. We have corrected the error and apologize for our wire service.” Or we could say: “The AP mistakenly fed readers the Bifurcation Fallacy — presenting only two alternatives when others exist. AP essentially tells readersTrump meant that all manufacturing had to be done in the United States or all had to be done abroad when readers know that is obviously not the case. We have corrected the error and apologize for our wire service.”

What you say about CBO may be true, but they score what they're asked to score. Of course, but how they score it is the CBO’s decision. --They could use dynamic scoring for economic issues even if they include static scoring,too. --They could distinguish between those leaving the health insurance market by choice from those “forced” to leave and they could point out how many left under Obamacare and not blame it on the newly proposed plan. I’m as cynical about the CBO as I am about the #MSM.

I have found John & Susan on FM radio, only slightly ahead of the ESPN talking heads. It is rare, if ever, the ESPN people talk about the game they are supposedly calling. I have turned the TV sound off.
