CNN’s May Ratings Already Collapsing by 20-Plus Percent

No.251351 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

>While Fox News and MSNBC are more or less holding steady this week when compared to the full month of May last year, the far-left CNN is already in a total ratings freefall by 20 percent and more.
>With three weeks of May still remaining, the Stormy Daniels Network might be able to mount (if you’ll pardon the expression) a comeback, but as of right now the month is looking like it could be a serious humiliation for CNN—and not just in total viewers but the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, as well.

Ukraine should blow up Putin's Crimea bridge

No.252300 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Russian President Vladimir Putin opened the Kerch Strait Bridge connecting Crimea, Ukraine, with mainland Russia on Tuesday. Putin did so by in a typical show of bravado by leading a column of transport vehicles across the bridge.

Ukraine should now destroy elements of the bridge.

While that course of action would be an escalation against Putin and one that would almost certainly spark Russian retaliation, this bridge is an outrageous affront to Ukraine's very credibility as a nation. Of course, from Putin's perspective that's the whole point. The bridge cost Russia's near-bankrupt government billions of dollars, but it offers Putin a formal physical and psychological appropriation of Ukrainian territory.

Fortunately Ukraine has the means to launch air strikes against the bridge in a manner that would render it at least temporarily unusable. Because of its significant length, the Ukrainian air force could strike the bridge while mitigating the risk of casualties by those traversing it.

How would Putin respond?

Probably with escalation against Ukrainian interests in eastern Ukraine. But that escalation is very likely coming in the next few months anyway, and Putin wants to slowly absorb Ukraine rather than conquer it outright (he doesn't want to upset his soccer World Cup bonanza by inviting new diplomatic pressure). But severing the bridge, even if temporarily, would send an unmistakable signal from Kiev to Moscow that Ukrainians are unwilling to accept the comfortable formalization of Putin's territorial theft. The Ukrainians could also fly low and circular to evade Russian (admittedly high-competency) air defenses. The U.S. could and should support Ukraine here with confidence in our own military power.

NYC Attorney General who sued Harvey Weinsten resigns after abuse allegations

No.250630 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, famed for prosecuting disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein for sexual assaults, is now being accused of violence by four women. He says consensual role-play is what took place.

Schneiderman, who became a star proponent of the #MeToo movement after filing a civil-rights lawsuit against Weinstein, now may see the tables turned on himself, after four women who spoke to The New Yorker accused him of "nonconsensual physical violence."

>I wish his victims would put the public interest ahead of their own.

>Happy now? Proud of yourself? Does it matter to you that the POLICIES sponsored by @AGSchneiderman promoted the Public Good for most people, especially the little guy? Enjoy your vain notoriety

Maxine Waters Threatens Regulation To Fix Tech's Diversity Problem

No.250560 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
>U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters and several other members of the Congressional Black Caucus went to Silicon Valley this week to demand more diversity in America's tech industry.

>The caucus met with several tech giants, including Airbnb, Apple and Twitter, to talk about how to improve the number of diverse employees at some of the country's most profitable businesses.

>For now, the tech sector still has a a diversity problem. In 2017, black people occupied less than 3 percent of the tech jobs at Facebook, Google, Amazon and Twitter. At Apple, black employees were at 8 percent, but none of these companies have black employees represented at an equal rate to the U.S. population.

Trump scraps cyber czar post after first appointee leaves: White House

No.252318 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

>WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House has eliminated the position of cyber security coordinator after President Donald Trump’s first appointee for the job departed last week, a spokesman for the National Security Council confirmed on Tuesday.

>“Today’s actions continue an effort to empower National Security Council Senior Directors. Streamlining management will improve efficiency, reduce bureaucracy and increase accountability,” NSC spokesman Robert Palladino said in a statement replying to a question about the role’s elimination.

>The NSC’s two senior cyber policy directors sit near one another so will be able to coordinate matters in real time, Palladino said.

>Politico first reported earlier on Tuesday that the position had been scrapped, citing an email from an aide to national security adviser John Bolton that was sent to NSC employees, and provided to the newspaper by a former U.S. official.

>Rob Joyce, Trump’s first coordinator, left the White House on Friday and planned to return to the National Security Agency where he had worked previously. His expected departure was announced in April.

>The position was established during the administration of President Barack Obama and was aimed at harmonizing government policy on cybersecurity and digital warfare.

>Cyber policy experts, legislators and former officials had urged Trump to replace Joyce and not abolish the position.

>“I don’t see how getting rid of the top cyber official in the White House does anything to make our country safer from cyber threats,” Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence committee, said in a Twitter post on Tuesday.
