Trump turns Lauer firing into occasion to blast Fake News

first_imgWASHINGTON – President Donald Trump turned the firing of NBC’s Matt Lauer into a fresh opportunity to attack the press Wednesday, unleashing a series of cryptic and personal tweets aimed at prominent media figures.As many Americans were eating breakfast, the president swiftly responded to the abrupt dismissal of the longtime “Today” show host by condemning NBC News and its Philadelphia-based parent company, Comcast Corp. Trump said on Twitter: “Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for ‘inappropriate sexual behaviour in the workplace.’ But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News.”Trump then referenced the NBC News chairman, adding: “Check out Andy Lack’s past!” It was not immediately clear what that comment referred to. In another tweet, the president used Lauer’s firing to lash out at “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough and MSNBC President Phil Griffin.NBC declined to comment on Trump’s tweets. It announced Wednesday that it had terminated Lauer after receiving a “detailed complaint” from a colleague about sexual misconduct.Trump’s comment on “Fake News” was a reiteration of his long-standing complaints about mainstream news outlets that he contends have covered his presidency unfairly and inaccurately. Trump, who often deems stories that he doesn’t like to be fake news, has maintained an ongoing battle with the media.His latest tweets follow a spate of posts in recent days denigrating the press, including one in which he suggested a contest to determine “the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted” news organization. He added: “Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”As a presidential candidate, Trump often criticized individual reporters by name at his massive, free-wheeling rallies. Wednesday’s tweets carried a sharply personal tone against a network that made Trump one of its biggest stars on “The Apprentice.”Speaking of Griffin, Trump tweeted that in light of Lauer’s departure, “when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?”Turning to Scarborough, Trump wrote: “And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”The president may have been referring to the 2001 death of an employee for Scarborough when he was serving as a Republican congressman from Florida. The 28-year-old woman was found dead in the congressman’s district office. A doctor who performed her autopsy said she suffered an abnormal heart rhythm, and police said at the time there were no signs of foul play.Scarborough responded with his own tweet: “Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump’s bizarre tweets. He is not well.”Trump has had a running feud with Scarborough and his “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski. After the two questioned Trump’s mental stability on their show, Trump last summer issued a crude tweet questioning Brzezinski’s intelligence, looks and temperament.The president’s tweets seeking to undermine the media have been a mainstay of Trump’s first year in office. The latest examples come amid tension over an upcoming White House holiday party.CNN, which is among Trump’s favourite targets, announced Tuesday that the network’s reporters would not be attending Friday’s White House Christmas party, an annual tradition in which reporters and administration officials interact in a more relaxed setting.“In light of the president’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests,” the network said in a statement, adding that it intended to send “a White House reporting team to the event” to cover any news.White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to the CNN announcement with a celebratory tweet, writing, “Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN.”Trump piled on, tweeting: “Great, and we should boycott Fake News CNN. Dealing with them is a total waste of time!”Journalists with The Associated Press also have been invited to the White House party. The news organization leaves it up to individual reporters to attend at their discretion.Over the weekend, Trump went after CNN International on Twitter, saying the network was “a major source of (Fake) news” outside the U.S. and complained that they “represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly.”“The outside world does not see the truth from them!” he wrote.It was an especially pointed attack on a news organization that prides itself on its international coverage.CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer noted during Monday’s broadcast that the network’s reporters risk their lives across the globe on a daily basis. “No matter how many insults or blatant assaults on the press and its freedoms, this pursuit is something for which we will never bend or break and even the loudest critics can’t silence the facts,” he said.___On Twitter, follow Ken Thomas at @KThomasDC.last_img read more

CSK aim to break losing streak against Sunrisers

first_imgChennai: Having lost two matches in a row, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) would be under a bit of pressure when they take on in-form Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium here on Tuesday. On Sunday, CSK faced a heart-wrenching one-run defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Chasing a “below par total” of 162, CSK lost their top four batsman inside the first four overs. It was only MS Dhoni, who single-handedly brought them into the match and kept their hopes alive till the last ball of the inning. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhDespite two consecutive losses, CSK still sit pretty at the top of the points table with 14 points from 10 games. However, they will like their top order to perform and secure a playoffs berth. But it will be a tough ask for them against SRH, who would be riding high on confidence after their comprehensive victory against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Hyderabad. SRH, however, will be wary of the fact that Tuesday’s game would be the last match for their in-form opener Johnny Bairstow, who will be leaving to attend England’s training camp for the upcoming World Cup. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterBoth David Warner and Bairstow have scored the bulk of the runs for the SRH and their middle-order has not performed — a fact well known to them and their opponents. With five wins from nine games, the Kane Williamson-led side would want to continue with the winning momentum and move upwards in the points table. The last time these two teams met in the ongoing IPL, SRH had secured a convincing six-wicket win at their home ground.last_img read more

Gold silver prices fall in India on low demand global cues

first_imgGold prices in India dropped for the second consecutive day on Saturday, as did silver. The fall was due to lacklustre demand from jewellers and the overall declining trend in the prices of the yellow metal, reported Press Trust of India. Gold prices fell Rs. 225 down to Rs. 29,575 per 10 gm and silver declined Rs.150 to Rs. 40,200 per kg in the Delhi bullion market, reported the agency. The yellow metal had spurted by Rs. 400 on Thursday to reach a high of Rs. 29,900 per 10 gm before setting off on a losing trend.Despite the fall over the past two days, gold delivered a return of 17.36 percent and silver 21.17 percent based on their closing prices on Jan. 1 and April 22.Meanwhile, the Indian government announced on Friday the formation of a panel to look into problems faced by jewellers over the imposition of the 1 percent excise duty. The panel will be headed by Ashok Lahiri, former chief economic advisor.Other members of the panel include Rohan Shah, legal expert; Manoj Kumar Dwivedi, joint secretary in the department of commerce; Alok Shukla, joint secretary, tax research unit, CBEC and trade representatives.”The Committee shall consider all issues related to compliance procedure for excise duty, records to be maintained, operating procedures and all other relevant issues,” the Indian finance ministry said in a statement.The re-introduction of the excise duty had led to jewellers going on a 19-day strike that was called off on March 19 following assurances by the government.The strike led to a sharp fall of 80 percent in gold imports to $972.96 million on an year-on-year basis in March.last_img read more

CM slams Centre over LPG price hike

first_imgKolkata: Coming down heavily on the BJP, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said the soaring prices of essential commodities will result in the middle-class being badly hit which will, in turn, become a question of their basic sustenance. “The hike in fuel price will affect the kitchen while the rise in the price of petrol and diesel will hit the transport sector badly,” she told newsmen on Saturday.The Chief Minister also said that the price of cooking gas has skyrocketed without any rhyme or reason. “Things are going beyond the reach of the middle-class. How can they make their both ends meet? How can they sustain,” she said and added: “But the Centre is not taking any measure to bring down the prices of petrol and diesel and that of the cooking gas.” Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsIt may be mentioned that the Trinamool Congress is the first national party to raise voice against the hike in the price of fuel.

first_imgKolkata: As many as 10 idols that have attracted pandal-hoppers during Durga Puja this year, will find their place at the refurbished art gallery beside Rabindra Sarobar.

My Mangolicious lunch

first_imgTired of summers and the scorching heat in the month of June, all I wanted was to go back home from work and eat the chilled mangoes which I kept in the fridge before leaving for office.This was my daily routine, all the summers and then one day I was invited by Cafe Knosh in Leela Ambience Convention Hotel, Delhi, to taste their exclusive ‘Mangolicious’ menu. It is then when I realised that there is a lot more scope with mango as an ingredient than just having Its slices. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfBefore going to the venue, I was totally unaware of what will be served to me. But trust me, my eyes were wide opened and mouth started watering when I saw the meticulous range of dishes – from appetizers to the main course – covering different kinds of rice and roti preparations to desserts. The welcome drinks varied from a very basic ‘Mangotini’, which was more like a pulpy fruity with slices of mango in it to a very unique amalgamation of coconut and mango in ‘Mango coconut chia cooler’. The mocktail menu was an assemblage of three more drinks besides Mangotini and Chia cooler. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveNow that the body temperature was normalised and we started to talk, a starter was served in front of us – which was Raw mango stuffed aranchi with sweet mango aioli. Maybe, the name is too big and confusing, but the way it was presented was immensely appealing to my eyes.Enlisted in the menu were the other four starter items out of which I liked ‘Ambi pudina ki machhli’ and ‘Aam ke kaliyan waale jhinge’. Personally, I didn’t like the ‘fried chicken’ and ‘Mango chilli potato’ there, as the taste was very basic and boring. The main-course menu out-stood the charts as the chef had very wisely chosen the dishes and balance of taste and presentation were quite visible.You won’t believe me if I tell you that I had ‘Mango Noodles’ as my lunch. Will you? Well, they were amongst the best noodles I have ever had in my life.I am not a big fan of eating fish, but the chef at Cafe Knosh made me fall in love with his second recipe of ‘fish’ when I had the first bite of ‘mango fish curry’ with rice. The fish was so soft and the curry had a perfect balance of spices in it. I would give that curry a perfect 10/10. Also, the Pancha Manga curry, a South Indian mango curry served with nice was okay in taste but the mongo fish curry stole the show.I literally held my tummy and said “I cannot eat anything else. ENOUGH!” when a very subtle and alluring platter of deserts was kept on my table and the chef asked me to try it.I swear that even if the chef had not asked me to eat it, I had already made my mind to dive into the beauty and experience its taste.Now, that I had the mango mousse and cupcake in Cafe Knosh, I would not be able to try any other mango dessert without comparing it with the one I just had!It was so delicious and pleasing to my eyes that in no time I ate the whole palate and wanted to ask for more.Overall, I had a wonderful experience and I would definitely love to experiment with the king of fruits, now that I know that it blends with so many things to make a perfect dish.This festival offering plenty of happiness with mangoes will last until June 25.last_img read more
