NRAAM 2019, Full of Sound & Fury, Signifying Nothing? Recap for the Record

Opinion NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits In Indianapolis, Indiana 2019 USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The National Rifle Association gathered for 2019 Annual Meeting of Members last month amid a firestorm of rumors, accusations, and threats. It promised to be the most contentious Members' Meeting in decades, and it didn't disappoint on that score. But the gathering, which was preceded by rumbling thunder, leading into lightning cracks and howling winds, concluded with a hollow, unsatisfying whimper. F...

Meet ‘The Prepared,’ the media company pitching disaster preparedness for everyone

A little over two years ago, The New Yorker ran a story about the survivalism craze sweeping Silicon Valley. The moneyed elite behind the tools of convenience that make modern life were, it turned out, making detailed contingency plans for the collapse of the civilization they’d help architect. Now, there’s a media company for that. The Prepared, a new site launched a little over a year ago by three men — two who have their own ties to the tech world — is aiming to make the world of survivalism ...

History Repeats Itself: How Corruption Nearly Killed The NRA Twice

The National Rifle Association is in a multi-million dollar legal firefight with one of its own: Ackerman McQueen, the Oklahoma-based advertising firm behind NRATV. The NRA portrays itself as an unwitting dupe in the April 12 lawsuit, alleging that its 40-year partner swindled it through contracts that allowed the ad firm to charge virtually unlimited expenses and potentially permitted current NRA president Oliver North to double-dip into the group’s finances. The New Yorker followed up with ...

SAP welcomes Elliott's $1.3 billion investment; shares hit high

News Leaders Fight Back Against Trump’s Claims That Journos Wrong On Mueller

NEW YORK (AP) — News industry leaders are fighting back against the charge by President Donald Trump and his supporters that the administration’s summation of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report proved that journalists were “so wrong for so long” in their coverage of the Russia investigation. The latest to weigh in was Steve Coll, dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, who wrote in a New Yorker magazine essay this week that it’s wrong to conclude journalism failed be...

Wall Disease - How Do Walls Affect How We Feel?

Jessica Wapner writes in the New Yorker about the research into how border walls affect the people living near them. In the nineteen-sixties, Dietfried Müller-Hegemann wrote as though the physical presence of the Berlin Wall were itself the cause of wall disease. But most psychologists who study borders today see a more abstract relationship between those structures and mental health. Christine Leuenberger, a sociologist at Cornell University who has studied walls around the world, says that ba...

Theranos at one point had a star-studded board of directors, including military leaders and former secretaries of state.  In HBO's "The Inventor: Out For Blood In Silicon Valley," director Alex Gibney spoke to reporters who wrote the first major profiles of the now-disgraced blood-testing company in 2014.  The reporters spoke to Theranos's board members, who explained why they were backing Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes.  "The Inventor" is available on HBO now.  Theranos founder Elizabeth ...

Trump-Fox News relationship is a whole new world

On Monday, the New Yorker's Jane Mayer published an explosive expose on "the Fox News White House," a deeply reported story alleging that the channel had killed a story about Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election and that President Trump tried to spike the AT&T-Time Warner merger apparently because he wasn't happy with the news coverage of his presidency by CNN, which is now owned by AT&T.

Fox News: Unfair and Unbalanced Propaganda

Jane Mayer, author of the very well-reviewed Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right, has a big piece in the New Yorker today on the close relationship between the Trump administration and Fox News. Hannity was treated in Texas like a member of the Administration because he virtually is one. The same can be said of Fox’s chairman, Rupert Murdoch. Fox has long been a bane of liberals, but in the past two years many people who watch the network clos...

Ex-Fox Host: Network Has ‘Problem On Its Hands’ If Report On Nixing Stormy Story True

That’s why they’re there, to do the...

Report: Fox News Had Stormy Daniels Story Before Election, Killed It To Protect Trump

A Fox News reporter had doggedly reported on President Donald Trump’s hush money payment to Stormy Daniels only to see it killed because Fox News co-chairman Rupert Murdoch wanted Trump to win, according to a New Yorker report. The reporter, Diana Falzone, had the bulk of the story together and confirmed by October 2016, per the New Yorker. She had confirmation from Daniels, emails between Michael Cohen and Daniels’ attorney and even the contract Daniels signed. Fox editors punted it around t...

The Coolest Spots To Get A Piercing In New York City

Being a New Yorker is about more than having the right zip code. There are also a few New York-specific rituals you must complete: You must attend at least one Yankees or Mets game — if not for the crowd antics, then for the overpriced beer. You must partake in a Sabrett hot dog when it's offered to you by a street vendor. And you must, absolutely must, get pierced at one of the many historic hot spots scattered all over the island (and in some outer boroughs).And while a last-minute baseball g...
