And he also opposed democracy in Syria . Was any of that reported in the U.S. ’newsmedia? Or will Americans first learn about it in the history books — if even then ? Did the ‘newsmedia report that the Obama-gang's entire case against Russia is based upon lies (even if some of the things that Russia’s Vladimir Putin has said have also been lies)? Did they report that Obama’s charges that Russia is the world’s #1aggressor’-nation are rabid lies from the world’s actual #1-aggressor-nation ? Volunteer journalists (such as “bloggers”) can report these things; well-paidjournalists’ cannot and do not. In true George Orwell 1984 fashion, reporting these things is calledfake news’, by the actual fake-news masters — and unfortunately suckers believe them. Even on serious domestic -policy news, the prestigiousnewsmedia pump the aristocracy’s lies, and inculcate the desired (by the super-wealthy) misconceptions .

That's a fat lot of good. If back pedalling ever becomes an Olympic sport, you have seen a gold-winning performance there. We need a serious conversation about this. I would like to get all the parties together into an Independent Commission, trying to take some of the political heat out of this because frankly, every year it's another year, another crisis.

Following her defeat of Lucie Safarova in straight sets in the second round of the Australian Open Thursday, Serena Williams didn't appreciate one reporter's criticism of her play. After the moderator opened the floor for questions during her post-match press conference, Williams shut down comments from the first reporter called on, who dubbed her performance scrappy and full of unforced errors. I think that's a very negative thing to say, she responded. Are you serious? The tennis superstar then went on to ask if he wanted to apologize, which he quickly did. Thank you very much, she said. That was a great performance. I played well. She's a former top-10 player. The last time we played together was the finals of a Grand Slam. A rule to live by: don't tell Serena Williams she played bad, especially when she definitely didn't.

The official stream of Donald Trump's inauguration concert has been having serious sound issues. And by issues, we mean, it sounds like someone slowly dying. Donald Trump's inaugural concert kicked off Thursday with acts such DJ Ravidrums, singer Sam Moore and a whole lot of country music. But anyone trying to get their hit of 3 Doors Down on the official inauguration committee's online stream, has been in for a painful time.

I think that poses particular challenges to everybody, but more so to the DUP in terms of recognising that serious questions have been asked about the handling of different situations in the course of recent times, so I think that is a particular disappointment.

They say gang leaders are using serious violence, kidnap and weapons, and ruthless debt control to manipulate young people. They say they believe it has the potential to be the next grooming scandal.
