Fox News playing loose and cheap with numbers again.
Boiling tops network "numbers tossing" host by a light speed celestial body. Planned Parenthood videos (doctored as they are) are more damaging than ISIS beheading video. Media Matters used the word "Speechless" regarding the Boling remark. I would also add the words "...and disgusting."
The New York Times recently validated Bill O'Reilly's proclamation of US media deterioration. As if O'Reilly's network isn't at the leading edge of such? We expect better from US media. If the nation's most storied media outlet publishes along the lines of Times' Clinton piece, we we must assume media has lost all respect for its readers ans viewers. Unless, of course you relish the Fox News business model and the New York Times' poorly research and non second sourced email story.
The New York Times' much-maligned report that originally claimed federal officials were seeking a criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton still contains a major factual error, despite undergoing two rounds of corrections and criticism from its public editor. The report claims, based on anonymous sources, that "two inspectors general" have asked for an investigation into possible mishandling of government information with regard to Clinton's email -- in fact, only one inspector general made such a referral.
Only One Inspector General Made A Referral, Contrary To The NY Times' Report
Planned Parenthood under attack during an election cycle. A "base" issue that will surely garner well, as the Right has few if any issues to support a run for the presidency.
Knowledge of the the 503c status of Planned Parenthood means little to nothing when the mission is to "salt and pepper" willing viewers with unabashed malarkey.
Oh the weakness of Trump's campaign manager comes to the light of day.
This is just embarrassing.

Do you think the guy knows the "RT" is the Russian Times (state sponsorship internet news) vs. the Republican Tribune.
On the campaign trail.
Front lawyer and chief pundit Michael Cohen went to "spousal Rape?" Spousal Rape was address legislation as far back as the 1990s. Cohen is a attorney, and did to exercise the wherewithal to check facts before speaking (A Trumpism), or did he even think to google the issue.)
"Inarticulate?" Cohen adopted an increasingly common word used by conservatives for strategic backtracking comments.
Cohen apologized for his comments Tuesday, calling them "inarticulate," and said the reporter's question sent him into a tailspin.
"As an attorney, husband and father there are many injustices that offend me but nothing more than charges of rape or racism. They hit me at my core. Rarely am I surprised by the press, but the gall of this particular reporter to make such a reprehensible and false allegation against Mr. Trump truly stunned me. In my moment of shock and anger, I made an inarticulate comment - which I do not believe -- and which I apologize for entirely," Cohen said in a statement to CNN.
"I will make sure that you and I meet one day while we're in the courthouse. And I will take you for every penny you still don't have. And I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know," Cohen said, according to the Daily Beast. "So I'm warning you, tread very f---ing lightly, because what I'm going to do to you is going to be f---ing disgusting. You understand me?"
While Trump has definitively distance himself from the "wagon-circling" attorney, a question remains about the failed utility of close confidants, pundits and surrogates who are given White House positions once a candidate the candidate wins the presidency.
President Obama took a few campaign professionals to the White House, and after a period they all seemed to fade-out of the Administration without fanfare. They were literally misplaced. Yet, not one of Obama's fade-outs were guilty of extreme loss of emotion accompanied by vile revealing remarks.
Do we have a case of "deficient emotional control?"
Do we have a case of "deficient emotional control?"
Will the scent GOP go down in US History with a moniker that in part reads: "Inarticulate?"
Breast pumping requirement set him off? Deposition attorney Elizabeth Beck speaks after contact from her husband and co-attorney. CNN article link.
CNN & @CNNPolitics Lawyer Elizabeth Beck did a terrible job against me, she lost (I even got legal fees). I loved beating her,she was easy
Trumps response is intriguing. What is the relevance of who lost the case? While we don't yet know the full truth of either side of this issue, we are seeing all the signs of an intolerant plutocrat who consistently exhibits deficient emotional control.
Bloomberg has estimated Trump's worth at well shy of the braggadocios moguls's $10 billion. Imagine the psyche of a person who inflates his worth for sake of carnival barking quest for a political nomination. Would you accept the behavior as well outside of the norm? If you can find rationale for such over inflation of wealth, it could speak volumes about your psyche.
