Trump Claims National Enquirer Reporting ‘Far More Accurate’ Than WaPo

After calling Amazon owner Jeff Bezos’s impending divorce a “beauty” last week, President Trump switched his tone on Sunday night by propping up the National Enquirer’s coverage of Bezos’ divorce and suggesting that the tabloid’s reporting was “far more accurate” than the Washington Post, which Bezos owns. So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Wash...

Some IRS online services, including ways to pay estimated taxes, are working despite shutdown

The Internal Revenue Service still is mostly closed due to the Capitol Hill impasse over how to fund the federal government. Just a relative handful of employees are in a few IRS offices, doing what have been deemed essential jobs, but not getting paid for their work. Some of the agency's online operations, however, are up and running. And other IRS services, particularly those that are funding in part by fees, could be restarted despite the closure of many of Uncle Sam's offices. In fact, one ...

A “view” from the courtroom: Comity Central

This term of the court has had plenty of arguably boring cases on statutory interpretation, pre-emption and procedure. But every now and then a low-key case comes along that results in an argument amounting to a heady constitutional seminar. Today’s lone case for argument, Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt, will be one of those. Seth P. Waxman for petitioner (Art Lien) When the court takes the bench, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is again absent as she recuperates from her recent lu...

It’s been said the San Fernando Valley is that bucolic place — the L.A. suburb that gets short shrift and little attention from the moving and shaking, the hustle and bustle, over the hill in DTLA and the westside. That may be true, but don’t let that fool you into thinking there’s little news or not much happening in this place of early 2 million people. Sure, the Valley’s got its slow days. We’ve had them here in the newsroom. But in the bigger picture, the place the Kardashians call home, whe...
