How CNN’s Fake News Machine Ran
CNN Investigates had been announced after President Trump’s inauguration. Its hit pieces had followed the same pattern as the Scaramucci attack that would be its undoing. Go after a personality tipped for a job with the new administration. CNN Investigates had previously targeted Monica Crowley and Sheriff Clarke with plagiarism accusations. But this time around, CNN’s anti-Trump unit had made a big mistake. Conspiracy theories die hard. Fake news is very profitable. But what happened at CNN should be a lesson to the rest of the industry eager to cash in on the irrational fear and loathing from the left. The two titans of anonymously sourced Trump hit pieces, the New York Times and the Washington Post, are next. [more...]
Tesla, North Korea, NAFTA and Rethinking America’s Growth Strategy?
President Trump declared that China’s efforts with North Korea have failed. Tesla, despite Elon Musk’s prior commitment to USA-made electric cars, announced that it is in talks to build a plant in Shanghai.

It seems that all the misinformation and fear mongering by Republicans has caused many insurance companies to lose millions of dollars and ultimately pull out of the program. Hold up a minute... The Affordable Care Act was a failure from day one. Some would say it’s good because now they have insurance and that makes it okay under any circumstances. Really?
