About that KGW-TV segment on Portland’s Bike Theft Task Force

Screen grab from interview with KGW host Dan Haggerty. A segment that aired Tuesday night on KGW, Portland’s NBC affiliate station, got a few things wrong about bike theft in Portland. (Note: See update at end of story posted on 4/16.) The Story with Dan Haggerty spent about six minutes on the topic, framed around the assertion that the Portland Police Bureau’s Bike Theft Task Force (BTTF) has been “eliminated” due to recent police budget cutbacks.

Portland cycling leaders at front of transgender cycling fight

Portlander Molly Cameron in Bicycling. Anti-transgender legislation proposed in many states across the country has spurred local cycling leaders to step up, speak out, and fight back. According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), 31 states are currently considering bills that would limit health care to transgender youth and/or prevent transgender youth from playing sports. Arkansas is one of the states leading the charge. It’s also slated to host the 2022 UCI Cyclocross World Champi...

After 47 years, Bike Gallery stores are now Trek Bicycle stores

New merch.(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) I knew it was going to happen, but it still felt like a shock.

Let’s talk about the BikePortland comment section

On Saturday, Tony Jordan, a parking reform advocate I’ve known and respected for years and who’s written stories for BikePortland, posted something on Twitter about a BikePortland comment. The conversations and concerns triggered by his Tweet (which I’m still responding to, three days later) have made me think deeply about our comment section. Here’s Tony’s tweet: Comments like this one on BikePortland reflect poorly on the community. It’s an exhausting and fruitless battle to argue with tr...

Trump claims people think his rally that incited the deadly Capitol riot was 'totally appropriate'

US President Donald Trump. Photo by SAUL LOEB/AFP via Getty Images Speaking publicly for the first time on Tuesday, President Donald Trump told reporters that "people" believe a speech he gave that incited last week's deadly Capitol insurrection was "totally appropriate." He also said the push to impeach him over his incitement of the insurrection was "absolutely ridiculous," adding that there was "tremendous anger" over it, though he didn't specify who was angry.

Joe Rogan apologized for spreading misinformation about Oregon fires amid Spotify employee backlash

Syfy/Getty Images Podcast host Joe Rogan apologized for echoing a false claim that that "left-wing activists" had been arrested on suspicion of setting forest fires in Oregon. In a recent episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience," Rogan referenced false reports of left-wing extremists setting fires — reports that the FBI had confirmed to be "untrue." On Friday, Rogan posted a video on Instagram in which he said he was "duped" and wanted to make an apology and a retraction. The podcaster calle...

300 and counting: Push by feds to arrest in US protests

By MICHAEL BALSAMO, ALANNA DURKIN RICHER and COLLEEN LONG | Associated Press WASHINGTON — In a private call with federal prosecutors across the country, Attorney General William Barr’s message was clear: aggressively go after demonstrators who cause violence. Barr pushed his U.S. attorneys to bring federal charges whenever they could, keeping a grip on cases even if a defendant could be tried instead in state court, according to officials with knowledge of last week’s call who were not authorize...

The Trump campaign has blown through its huge cash advantage over Biden, logged some iffy spending

"Money was supposed to have been one of the great advantages of incumbency for President Trump," and when Joe Biden emerged as the "relatively broke" presumptive Democratic nominee in the spring, "Trump and the Republican National Committee had a nearly $200 million cash advantage," The New York Times reports. Five months later, "Trump's financial supremacy has evaporated," and "some people inside the campaign are forecasting what was once unthinkable: a cash crunch with less than 60 days un...

This Week in Photography: Visiting Houston in #2020

  Part 1. The Intro   I went to Houston six months ago. Went is the past tense of the verb to go. In Spanish, it’s ir, and in French, it’s aller. So I would say Je suis allé a Houston. Do you remember what it means to go places? To leave your home, or your town, and transport your body somewhere else, to a different city, or state, to a different culture, with a different landscape? Honestly, I kind of forget what the sensation feels like. Six months ago, I did something that was, at that point,...

Analysis of Defensive Shootings by Rifleman in Kenosha RIots ~ VIDEO

U.S.A. –-( The video shows a timeline of the shootings during the Kenosha riots on 25 August 2020. In the video, there are two shooting sequences. Both appear to be cases of self-defense. The video identifies the rifleman as Kyle Rittenhouse. The first shooting happens as the rifleman is running away from pursuers, in the lot of an auto dealer. You can see him running and people pursuing. One is getting close enough to throw something [molotov cocktail] at him. About five second...

This Week in Photography: Spoiling for a Fight

  Part 1: The Intro   Donald Trump has unleashed secret police upon America. For all my repeated criticism of the man, over many years, that is not a sentence I ever thought I’d write. But here we are. They are secret, because their uniforms are unmarked, and they have apparently been pulling people off the street into unmarked vans in Portland. Now, he’s sending them to cities like Chicago and Albuquerque, because he sees his best shot at re-election dependent upon an uprising of Red State vote...
