    Oh, yeah, Tee, but I don’t want to be famous.  Another potential self-serving advantage for Barr investigating the Epstein death, is that they have an excuse for not answering any questions about it (i.e., the typical “We can’t discuss cases while they are under investigation.”

    Re NYT headline…

    NYT Top Editor: Trump Racism Headline Was a ‘F*cking Mess’

    ….During a hastily arranged meeting, lasting well over an hour, top Times leadership addressed the paper’s staff about public criticism the outlet has faced in recent weeks centering around its coverage of Trump, race, and politics. …

    Much of the meeting focused on outrage over a headline last week following multiple mass shootings, including one in El Paso that authorities have said was seemingly motivated by racial hatred. The headline, which proclaimed “Trump Urges Unity Against Racism,” faced criticism both outside and within the paper among those who said the publication was papering over the president’s history of racist comments and how Trump seemed to focus on other issues, including violent video games, more than racism and xenophobia.

    “He’s sick. He feels terrible,” Baquet said of the person who wrote the offending headline.

    The top editor reiterated that the headline was a mistake—“It was a fucking mess,” he told the staff…”

    One thing that’s different in journalism than in most occupations, @Player, is that when you mess up, the whole world finds out.

    I once made a dumb mistake on a headline and got complaints. I was a mess for weeks. And this was a small paper, pre-Internet. I can’t imagine how it feels to be this guy. People do make mistakes.

    In addition, journalists are subject to libel and slander laws, they do get sued and they do lose their jobs.

    And it isn’t unusual at all to see media outlets doing autopsies on errors they made.

    Is that the case in your occupation, Player? (If you have one.)

    I think Lausten may have a deficiency of hubris

    I think they sell a supplement for that.

    Luckily, supplements are untested and unregulated, so Lausten doesn’t have to worry about the safety of taking it, like he would an Rx…

    Not talling about barr. Talking about the media responsibility to investigate, holding people to account and finding out the truth.

     

    I hold my breath that this will happen as the oligarchs connected with epstein must be protected.  Or are oligarchs only in Russia for you Timb??

    One thing that demonstrates intelligence and wisdom, @Player, is knowing a bit about how jobs work, and how the world works, before criticizing.

    Not talling about barr. Talking about the media responsibility to investigate, holding people to account and finding out the truth.

    I’m sure the media outlets ARE investigating. But they may not “crack the case” for a year or more.

    Epstein was found dead August 10. That was 3 days ago. I realize that on TV shows, all the facts are uncovered in an hour (less commercials). In real life, an investigation like this takes months, maybe over a year, and journalists don’t have magical access to the kinds of “evidence” investigators do.

    So do you think they should not have reported on Epstein’s death until then? Wouldn’t you be complaining that they were hiding his death from the public?

    You don’t read investigative reports very carefully anyway. If you did, you’d know the “Russia collusion” wasn’t as simple as you made it, and hasn’t actually been debunked.

    You just want to complain, and any idiot can do that.

    Why else would you think the corporate  media will rather support trump over hernie

    Why, pray tell, do you believe “the corporate media” supports Trump for 2020?

    You sure they are with those op eds??

     

    “You don’t read investigative reports very carefully anyway. If you did, you’d know the “Russia collusion” wasn’t as simple as you made it, and hasn’t actually been debunked.:

    Speaking of idiots, your epistemology seems to be believe everything until it has been proven false. At least thats what appears here when you use the words not dunked rather than saying Russian collision has been proven.

     

    Thats an extremely dodgy pathway to truth. I hope its was not reflected in your professional career.

    Are you that much of a doofus to believe the corporate media is neutral on the policies bernie is championing??

    I have no reason to think you have ever had a career, professional or otherwise, so I’m not sure why you think I care.
