>President Donald Trump overcame more than a dozen Republican opponents, Hillary Clinton, an array of scandals and daunting electoral math to land in the Oval Office. But now, he may have finally met an opponent he cannot slay: Big Bird.

>The Trump administration on Thursday unveiled a budget proposal that would entirely eliminate federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the publicly funded radio and television entity that includes NPR, PBS and about 1,500 affiliated stations. The move would save about $485 million — about 0.0137 percent of total federal spending.

>“When you start looking at places that we reduce spending, one of the questions we asked was can we really continue to ask a coal miner in West Virginia or a single mom in Detroit to pay for these programs? The answer was no,” Trump’s Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday morning. “We can ask them to pay for defense, and we will, but we can’t ask them to continue to pay for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.”

David Rockefeller Has died

No.123634 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Mr. Rockefeller was influential in foreign affairs, helped resolve New York’s fiscal crisis in the 1970s and was chairman of the Museum of Modern Art for many years.

David Rockefeller, the banker and philanthropist with the fabled family name who controlled Chase Manhattan bank for more than a decade and wielded vast influence around the world even longer as he spread the gospel of American capitalism, died on Monday morning at his home in Pocantico Hills, N.Y. He was 101.

A family spokesman, Fraser P. Seitel, confirmed the death.

Chase Manhattan had long been known as the Rockefeller bank, though the family never owned more than 5 percent of its shares. But Mr. Rockefeller was more than a steward. As chairman and chief executive throughout the 1970s, he made it “David’s bank,” as many called it, expanding its operations internationally.

His stature was greater than any corporate title might convey, however. His influence was felt in Washington and foreign capitals, in the corridors of New York City government, art museums, great universities and public schools.

Mr. Rockefeller could well be the last of an increasingly less visible family to have cut so imposing a figure on the world stage. As a peripatetic advocate of the economic interests of the United States and of his own bank, he was a force in global financial affairs and in his country’s foreign policy. He was received in foreign capitals with the honors accorded a chief of state.

He was the last surviving grandson of John D. Rockefeller, the tycoon who founded the Standard Oil Company in the 19th century and built a fortune that made him America’s first billionaire and his family one of the richest and most powerful in the nation’s history.

As an heir to that legacy, Mr. Rockefeller lived all his life in baronial splendor and privilege, whether in Manhattan (as a boy he и

88% of Mainstream News hates Trump

>A new American President is always a big story, but TV news is obsessed with the Trump administration — and not in a good way.

>In the first 30 days (January 20 to February 18), our analysts determined that the President and his team were the subject of 16 hours of coverage on just the Big Three evening newscasts. This equates to more than half (54%) of all of the news coverage during this period.

>While most new presidents enjoy a media honeymoon, the tone of Trump’s coverage was nearly as hostile (88% negative) as we found during last year's presidential campaign (91% negative).

DEBT COLLECTOR Donald Trump claims Germany owes the US and Nato ‘vast sums of money’

No.123258 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Only the US and four other Nato members – including the UK – currently reach the alliance’s benchmark of spending on defence which is 2% of GDP.

But Germany spends a miserly 1.23% of its national income despite running a whopping £234billion budget surplus.

The two leaders showed little common ground yesterday over a host of thorny issues, including Nato and defence spending.

And today Trump tweeted: “Germany owes vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defence it provides to Germany!”

…vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2017

During their joint news conference, Trump – who has criticised NATO as “obsolete” – demanded that America’s allies in the military alliance pay back “vast sums of money from past years”.

Merkel said Germany had committed to increasing its military spending to the previously agreed level of 2% of GDP for NATO’s European members.

Trump set the tone for his relations with Merkel during his campaign last year, saying her decision to allow close to a million refugees into Germany was a “catastrophic mistake” and suggested she was “ruining Germany”.

In a truly cringe-worthy scene, the US President appeared to completely blank requests to shake his guest Angela Merkel’s hand.

But Trump also lashed out at the news media on Saturday. "Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS," he tweeted, "I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Shia LaBeouf and the Pitfalls of Celebrity Activism

No.115082 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/23/nyregion/shia-labeouf-celebrity-activism.html?ribbon-ad-idx=5&rref=nyregion

>The occasion of Harry Belafonte’s 90th birthday landing within a few days of the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday makes it a good moment to think about what celebrity political activism looked like a half-century ago, when Mr. Belafonte’s service in the civil rights movement involved acting as a confidant to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and what it looks like now. Given the current tensions, the Oscars are sure to deliver a number of speeches, in greater volume than might ordinarily be expected, devoted to doing more than merely thanking the good people at Warner Bros. and William Morris Endeavor. Even if our sympathies perfectly line up with the substance of what is said, many of us will find ourselves annoyed — at the prospective opportunism, the posturing, the stridency, the absence of connection in some cases between words and meaningful action.

>Hollywood, for the most part, has positioned itself as one of Donald J. Trump’s chief institutional antagonists, and yet only a nation that had fully absorbed the values of show business could have elected him president. A culture that put a man whom many view as a pathological narcissist at the top of American government has also produced, rather logically, a response to his various offenses, among entertainers, that is tainted by a similar self-regard.

>Consider the recent adventures of Shia LaBeouf, a former Disney Channel performer and star of the “Transformers” franchise (whose name precedes that slightly cringe-making combination of words in any Wikipedia entry: “Shia LaBeouf is an American actor, performance artist and filmmaker”). In collaboration with his artistic partners Luke Turner and Nastja Sade Ronkko, Mr. LaBeouf mounted an exhibit, “He Will Not Divide Us,” on an exterior wall at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens on Jan. 20, the day President Trump took office.
