Thomas Jefferson railed against newspapers as “polluted vehicles” of falsehood and error.

Historians can point to plenty of past presidents who have sparred with the press. But they're hard-pressed to find anything that approaches the all-out attack on the media that President Donald Trump seems intent on escalating at every turn. “There has never been a kind of holistic jihad against the news media like Trump is executing,” said Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley. “Trump is determined to beat and bloody the press whenever he finds himself in a hole, and that's unique.” Trump, who has long had an adversarial relationship with the media, opened a 77-minute East Room news conference Thursday by saying he hoped to “get along a little bit better” with the press going forward – “if that's possible.

The paramedics arrived at Jamie Lynn Spears' Louisiana compound following a frantic 911 call. When they found young Maddie, her head was stuck in something below the surface of the murky pond where her ATV flipped over. We went to pull her out but we realized her head was stuck in something. At that point we didn't know what it was — the water was so dark. It was pond water, first responder Victoria Ragoonath said. When we got to her she was not conscious she was laid across the seat, tangled up in the safety netting that runs around the ATV, her partner John Fortner shared. When they finally freed her, she had no pulse.

Prior to journalism, he spent time as an opera conductor, a singing telegram deliveryman and a longtime PR flack for Berman and Company, where he often defended corporate clients in the food and beverage industry against claims made by consumers and activists. As part of that job, Martosko once tangled with actor Jeremy Piven, who left his role in a David Mamet play after alleging that some sushi gave him food poisoning. Martosko swung back in a statement to the press: “If Piven weighs about 160 pounds he would have to eat at least 3.4 pounds of sushi-grade tuna – that’s 108 pieces of tuna sushi roll—every week for his entire lifetime in order to introduce any new health risks from mercury.” Martosko’s most infamous work involved him impersonating a dope-smoking commie to infiltrate animal-rights groups—a stunt that led to a lawsuit and a 2013 Mother Jones investigation .

By the 1992 Games, though, the country was no longer united. Jokic was four years old when NATO troops bombed Serbia for 11 weeks in 1999. The attacks came at the tail end of a war among Yugoslavia's six neighboring states: Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. "I remember things like sirens, bomb shelters, always turning off the lights," Jokic says. "We practically lived in the dark. Even at like 9 a.m., everything was turned off." After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, communism crumbled and nationalism ascended in Yugoslavia. In the '90s, ethnic resentments in Yugoslavia gave way to a series of brutal wars, which lasted a decade. The timelines of the Yugoslav wars tangled as battles overlapped, borders were redrawn and neighbors slaughtered neighbors. At least 140,000 were killed. When the dust settled, 161 people were indicted for war crimes.

In the nineteenth century it arrived on the east coast of America in the literary vehicle of Transcendentalism, The Dial , and migrated to the west coast in the twentieth. Another chapter of the book focuses on the Lotus s tangled history in Japan, which rivals the Reformation period for divisiveness; the followers of Nichiren, a thirteenth-century Japanese Buddhist who extolled the Lotustra above all others, "split into their own sects and subsects and sub-subsects" after his death. The stories of two figures in the Lotus's historyNichiren and Eugène Burnouf, the sūtra's nineteenth-century French translator—make for the most fascinating passages in this book. Burnouf admired the historical Buddha while Nichiren lauded the cosmic Buddha. One mark of a great religious text, the kind of text worthy of a biography in this series, is its capacity to be read in many ways, even in ways that strike us as unseemly.
