Donald Trump Exploring Improbable Ways
He Might Buy the New York Times

New York Magazine, by Joe Hagan

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 1/23/2013 7:21:40 AM

Donald Trump has spent a lot of time in the last year trying to make news, first with his birther obsession, and more recently demanding comedian Bill Maher pay him $5 million. (Maher offered the sum for proof Trump wasn’t the “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” Trump released his own birth certificate and threatened to sue Maher for the money.) Now Trump is exploring ways to make news in a more literal way: by acquiring the New York Times. According to sources familiar with the situation,

Love the Donald. This showman would either turn this dying leftist rag around or at least make an interesting TV show out of telling Tom Freidman, Maureen Dowd, Paul Krugman and the rest, "You´re fired!"

The Times is committing suicide, so why try to stop it.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. The Trump Times. The Old Grey Lady gets a facelift and an orange hair combover.

He cheapens an already cheap rag just by buying it. Brilliant! Then hand it off to Carlos Slim like an old used up strumpet.

Fitting end to a ´newspaper´ that prides itself in having no funnies.

And in the first issue of the Trump New York Times, Donald could print the pictures of the looks on the faces of all the hack "journalists" learning they now work for The Donald. That issue would sell millions from coast to coast.

#4, that definitely would get me to go into a Starbucks to buy an issue. I think this is something that should be explored by our side. But you realize that because it is somebody from our side doing the buying, the left would rather close down shop then let our side own the publication.

Wow, last week I fantasized that Murdock would buy the NYT, and get journalists by actively recruiting from places like Hillsdale College. What a coup that would be. I would subscribe to the times if it became conservative. The Donald would make things really interesting.

You know what I’m tired of? People being so down on themselves for not remembering things. Doesn’t it seem like everyone you know over a certain age is spending way too much time saying, “Dammit, I just saw that movie yesterday, and I can’t remember what it’s called. This is terrible.” That’s so negative. Quitcherbellyachin’! Celebrate what you do remember! For example, I was in Duane Reade the other day, forgetting what I was there for, and, yes, getting bummed out about it. Then I remembered that I was there for some kind of hair product, only I couldn’t remember

Russia had so much to prove at the Winter Games. That spending however-many-billion dollars to build an Olympics-industrial complex from scratch on the edge of the Black Sea was worth it. That despite a thicket of security worries, logistical obstacles, weather annoyances and the darkening specter of revolution in nearby Ukraine, the country could put on a Games that ran seamlessly, at times even exuberantly.

Five Myths about Netflix
Washington Post, by Gina Keating    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 2/23/2014 7:40:33 AM     Post Reply
In its two-decade lifespan, Netflix has led three revolutions that have changed how people watch movies and television — from videotape to DVD, from DVD to streaming, and from televisions and movie theaters to video-enabled devices. As the company rolls out the second season of its hit series “House of Cards” and sees its stock price hit record highs, let’s look at some of the folklore surrounding what looks like the future of entertainment.1. Netflix was started after one of its founders incurred a huge late fee from his local video store.The story of the $40 late fee for a

Now is the winter of our disconnects. And cancellations. And getting stuck in faraway places with no fast way home. A single snowy week in February saw more than 14,000 flights canceled, among the nearly 79,000 erased by a series of winter storms that are partly the product of a weather phenomenon called the polar vortex. An additional 290,000 have been delayed, according to flight-tracking website Flightaware. But the weather alone does not explain why on any given day, tens of thousands of passengers may find themselves stranded and scrambling to make their way home. The cancellation crisis also reflects how

Barack Obama met the Dalai Lama at the White House on Friday, despite objections from China, which has warned that the meeting would inflict grave damage on Sino-American relations.The Tibetan spiritual leader is in the US on a speaking tour. The White House did not announce the meeting until late on Thursday, prompting a gruff complaint from Beijing, in what has become something of a diplomatic ritual whenever Obama meets the exiled Buddhist monk.The two Nobel laureates spent an hour in the White House´s Map Room, a step down in prestige from the Oval Office, where the president traditionally meets

Two leading Republicans on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence say that Michael Morell, then acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, gave an account of his role on Benghazi that was often misleading and sometimes deliberately false. “I went back and reviewed some of his testimony the other day and he’s gotten himself in a real box,” says Senator Saxby Chambliss, the highest-ranking Republican on the committee. “It’s really strange. I’ve always thought Mike was a straight-up guy, gave us good briefings—factual, straightforward. I mean, this has really been strange the last few weeks—all this now being uncovered.”At issue is

Surprised by how tough this winter has been? You’re in good company: Last fall the Climate Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted that temperatures would be above normal from November through January across much of the Lower 48 states. This graphic shows just how wrong the official forecast of the U.S. government was: The big red blotch in the top map represents parts of the country in which the Climate Prediction Center forecast above-average temperatures.

Hopes that a fresh truce could end the confrontation in Kiev were dashed on Thursday when at least 21 protesters were killed in the space of a few hours. The Telegraph saw ten corpses were laid out on the pavement beneath the awning of a cafe on the northen edge of Independence Square, where thousands of demonstrators are still camped. At least three of the bodies displayed single bullet wounds to the heads. A Reuters photographer counted a total of 21 bodies in three places on the square. One demonstrator, who gave his name as Andreiy, carried in one body

KIEV, Ukraine — With hundreds of riot police officers advancing from all sides after a day of deadly mayhem here in the Ukrainian capital, antigovernment protesters mounted a final desperate and seemingly doomed act of defiance late on Tuesday evening, establishing a protective ring of fire around what remained of their all-but-conquered encampment on Independence Square. Feeding the blazing defenses with blankets, tires, wood, sheets of plastic foam and anything else that might burn, the protesters hoped to prolong, for a while longer at least, a tumultuous protest movement against President Viktor F. Yanukovych, a leader who was democratically elected in

Forrmer Clinton administration operative Paul Begala doesn’t think so. He writes: “Politics [is] about the future, not the past; about voters’ lives, not politicians’. Thus the personal attacks on Clintons will fail.” Begala is probably right, but his analysis seems to apply only to Democratic politicians. The Washington Post thought that a few instances of alleged high-school bullying by Mitt Romney were relevant to his presidential bid, and Team Obama had a field day with Romney’s old business ventures. Similarly, the Post has written this year about Chris Christie’s first political campaign (for the County Commission in 1994) and about his

WASHINGTON — When President Obama invited President François Hollande of France for a state dinner, the White House drew up a list of 300 guests to honor the visiting leader and his partner, Valérie Trierweiler. Engraved invitations, with the presidential seal in gold at the top, were printed and set to be mailed. But there was an unexpected development. Mr. Hollande’s relationship with Ms. Trierweiler blew up in the midst of revelations of an affair with a French actress he had secretly been visiting by motor scooter. Suddenly, Ms. Trierweiler was no longer France’s unofficial first lady and no longer coming

Julie Boonstra, a cancer patient who was kicked of off her health plan due to Obamacare, lashed out at Rep.

In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed.

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.
