close Video Kurtz: The POTUS war on Jeff Zucker, Andy Lack, Carl Bernstein 'MediaBuzz' host Howard Kurtz weighs in on President Trump calling for the firing of Jeff Zucker, a move, Kurtz says, that crosses the line. I have said since Donald Trump got into the campaign that he has every right to hit back at the media that he believes covers him unfairly. I have said after each controversial story and each attack that while the president's language is occasionally too harsh, the relentlessly negative coverage is fair game for his counterpunching approach. But the president crossed a line yesterday that he should not have crossed in calling for the heads of two major networks to be fired. I knew when I said that on Fox that I would be strongly criticized by some Trump supporters. But I have to be consistent. A president of the United States using his bully pulpit to demand the firing of corporate executives, simply because he doesn't like their media coverage of him, is … [Read more...] about Crossing a line?

Sports Premier League Transfer News It’s deadline time for the transfer window in Europe but Manchester United continue to monopolize attention, even though the Premier League market closed three weeks ago. That is because the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is reportedly monitoring the mood of the players. The relationship between Woodward and Jose Mourinho appears increasingly strained and both The Times and The Sun claim the former is closely gauging the temperature of squad members, amid suggestions they have privately discussed Mourinho's sacking if United lose at Burnley on Sunday. The 20-time champions of England have got off to their worst start to the season in 26 years and a third consecutive defeat could make Mourinho’s position almost untenable, particularly given the prickly demeanorthe Portuguese displayed throughout the summer.

Steve Pokin Springfield News-Leader Published 3:00 p.m. UTC Aug 31, 2018 Answer Man: Why is there a rusted-out Los Angeles Times newsbox outside the Post Office at 500 W. Chestnut Expressway in Springfield? How long has it been there? — Jeff Munzinger, of Springfield Well, Jeff, enjoy this relic as long as you can, because the minute I asked about it, the Post Office started to take steps to remove it. I did not ask that it be removed; in my brief acquaintance with this news box, I have grown rather fond of it. It harks back to better days for print newspapers and a time when I was young and my hair was darker and my employers provided me with a free subscription to the paper. It harks back to when the price of one of the nation's premier newspapers was 75 cents a copy. Sorry, make that $1 a copy — as you can see by the sticker in the photo that doesn't quite cover where it says 75 cents. Perhaps I should not be … [Read more...] about Answer Man: Why is there an old, decrepit LA Times news box outside the main Post Office?
