Chris Wallace to Preibus: "You don't get to tell us what to do"

Fox News's Chris Wallace took down obvious anagram Reince Priebus in spectacular fashion today:

“You don’t get to tell us what to do any more than Barack Obama did. Barack Obama whined about Fox News all the time, but I gotta say, he never said we were an enemy of the people.”

No terrorist attack in Sweden yesterday-but there was 1-16 days ago-On a refugee center-By Neo-Nazis

STOCKHOLM (AFP) -
Three suspected neo-Nazis have been arrested in Sweden after a home-made bomb attack on an asylum-seeker centre last month left one person seriously injured, security services said Thursday.

The three suspects "are or were in the past members of the Nordic Resistance Movement", a neo-Nazi group, said Mats Ljungqvist of the anti-terror prosecutor's office.

An enquiry is underway into the blast outside the centre in the southwestern city of Gothenburg on January 5. It left an immigration office staff member seriously injured with wounds to his legs.

One of the suspects in the bombing was taken into custody earlier this month. The two other arrests were made on Wednesday and Thursday.

Don't Dismiss President Trump's Attacks on the Media as Mere Stupidity

.....we honor the responsibility to separate truth from falsehood, which is never more important than when powerful people insist that falsehoods are truths, or that there is no such thing as truth to begin with.

So that’s the business we’re in: the business of journalism. Or, as the 45th president of the United States likes to call us, the “disgusting and corrupt media.”

Some of you may have noticed that we’re living through a period in which the executive branch of government is engaged in a systematic effort to create a climate of opinion against the news business.

...........

George Orwell wrote, “To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” Danny saw what was in front of his nose.

We each have our obligations to see what’s in front of one’s nose, whether we’re reporters, columnists, or anything else. This is the essence of intellectual integrity.

Not to look around, or beyond, or away from the facts, but to look straight at them, to recognize and call them for what they are, nothing more or less. To see things as they are before we re-interpret them into what we’d like them to be. To believe in an epistemology that can distinguish between truth and falsity, facts and opinions, evidence and wishes. To defend habits of mind and institutions of society, above all a free press, which preserve that epistemology. To hold fast to a set of intellectual standards and moral convictions that won’t waver amid changes of political fashion or tides of unfavorable opinion. To speak the truth irrespective of what it means for our popularity or influence.

Meet them. "They're Not The Enemy"

?1487498396

When President Donald Trump attempted to invalidate and discredit the mainstream media a few days ago by calling it "The enemy of the American people," a miracle occurred in the Twitterverse.

Meet them. They're #NotTheEnemy

Almost immediately, the hashtag #NotTheEnemy appeared. And then people began Tweeting the President - from all over the world - with photographs and bios of journalists who had served, and often died, for their country while reporting.

* There is Anna Politkoskya, who was murdered in Chechnya after publically criticizing Vladimir Putin, whom our President respects so highly.

* There are Alison Parker and Adam Ward of CBS News, who were murdered mid-broadcast in Roanoke, VA.

* There is David Pearl of the Wall Street Journal, who was abducted and beheaded on camera in Pakistan.

*There is Marie Colvin, who died covering the Seige of Horns in Syria.

At the top right is a tweet to the President from a Sulome Anderson, who wrote, "This is my dad, Terry Anderson. He was kidnapped in Lebanon and held for six and one-half years. He is #NotTheEnemy."

Trump didn't receive favorable results, so now he's calling his own poll rigged.
