CNN Acosta incorrectly calls Trump out on facts...

among other things he argues (incorrectly) that 17 intelligence communities agreed on the Russian Hacking. This has been proven false, and most media outlets who had previously reported so have offered retractions or corrections. Only three of the intelligence communities actually signed on to that statement.



Here is the AP retraction:
In stories published April 6, June 2, June 26 and June 29, The Associated Press reported that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. That assessment was based on information collected by three agencies – the FBI, CIA and National Security Agency – and published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which represents all U.S. intelligence agencies. Not all 17 intelligence agencies were involved in reaching the assessment.
CNN continues to be an embarrassment in their coverage of the President.

CNN Accuses Trump of Holding ‘Fake News Conference’

CNN’s Jim Acosta accused President Trump of holding a “fake news conference” by calling on a friendly reporter, The Hill reports.

“Trump on Thursday held a joint press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda, during which he took two questions — one of which was from the Daily Mail’s David Martosko, who acknowledged talking to the Trump administration about taking a job with them.”

Said Acosta: “Trump finally held a news conference overseas. But he took a question from a friendly reporter and then attacked CNN as ‘fake news.'”

Commonsense said...

Donald Trump Junior has a great rejoinder to Acosta when he said "So the last eight years with Barack Obama were fake news conferences?"

The actual quote that matters:

In the 2005 Access Hollywood video, Donald Trump, newly-married to his third wife, sees an actress through the window of a bus and exclaims: "Whoa! Whoa! I've got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her," Trump says.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful—I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait.

"And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything."

There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.

$5.1 million in payroll savings vs. the Obama FY2015 payroll. In 2017, the Trump payroll amounts to $35.8 million for 377 employees, while the Obama payroll amounted to $40.9 million for 476 employees (FY2015).

Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009).


probably needed that much staff to pull up her clothing over that azzzz

caliphate4vr said...

Oops

The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality. In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and
credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to
conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years
have been the warmest ever –despite current claims of record setting
warming.

Finally, since GAST data set validity is a necessary condition for
EPA’s GHG/CO2 Endangerment Finding, it too is invalidated by these
research findings.

caliphate4vr said...

Stated simply, our new research findings building on the previous work, totally debunks EPA’s claim that CO2 is a pollutant that must therefore be regulated. It does so by very clearly demonstrating the “Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) “ data, quoted all the time as setting new surface temperature records, have been purposefully adjusted in a manner such that they are now basically meaningless numbers. Continued reliance on this manipulated GAST data is supporting CO2 regulatory actions that very negatively impact the poor not only in the U.S., but worldwide. There is no scientific basis for this widespread regulation.

Icecap.us....

A veritable group of deniers, which cali thinks is correct.....including a dead member. LOLOLOL!!!

Robert C. Balling Jr –Balling has acknowledged receiving $408,000 in research funding from the fossil fuel industry over the last decade (of which his University takes 50% for overhead). Contributors include ExxonMobil, the British Coal Corporation, Cyprus Minerals and get this OPEC!!!
Sallie Baliunas – Between December 1998 and September 2001 she was listed as a “Scientific Adviser” to the Greening Earth Society, a group that was funded and controlled by the Western Fuels Association (WFA), an association of coal-burning utility companies.
Robert M. Carter– Sits on the advisory board os the Institute of Public Affairs which is funded by the mining and tobacco industry along with Monsanto.
Reid A. Bryson– While certainly a climatologist and skeptic, Dr. Bryson passed away last year yet is still listed on icecap as being a consultant. Maybe they discovered how to channel the deceased?

As I said before, when you politicized a branch of science some scientist go where the grant money is. They are invested in trying to show global warming is real rather than just go where the data leads them.

An opinion from another denier who is a creationist like you menstral. The only thing proved is they cannot disprove the data sets.

Taegan Goddard: "Trumpcare Teeters on Collapse Again"

It Just Got Harder for GOP to Pass a Health Care Bill

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) “won’t vote for the Senate GOP health care bill without the addition of a controversial amendment he’s championing with Sen. Ted Cruz — a position he has made clear to the White House and Senate Republican leaders,” according to Caitlin Owens.

Said Lee: “The entire bill is unacceptable without the Consumer Freedom Option.”
----
Jonathan Chait: “Lee’s position makes it almost impossible for McConnell to find his 50 votes. Blue-state senators Susan Collins and Dean Heller already appear irretrievably opposed to anything resembling McConnell’s plan. If Lee demands that the bill let insurers charge higher prices for coverage of treatments needed by sicker people, then he drives away at least one more vote on the party’s opposite wing: Lisa Murkowski or Shelley Moore Capito, among others, have expressed reservations about yanking coverage away from people who have obtained it through Obamacare.”

Add that together with his press conference in Poland, that was a telling embarrassment. He had attacked Barack Obama and the media.

Expectations are fairly low but he is largely freaking disaster the way he's going is not a good thing.

wphamilton said...

The study said that 82% of the CO2 increase comes from combustion of fossil fuels That would be a fact. The study then denies that it is unwanted, harmful greenhouse gas emission, because the combustion is used for energy. That would be an opinion, and obviously wrong one which no actually respected scientist would include in a research paper.

The authors are shills, motivated by politics. They have a history of it.

Commonsense said...

I think "combustion used for energy" is a fact.

"Energy is wanted." is an opinion shared by most everyone who wants to live in a post fire civilization.

The problem with climatology now is that it's all motivated by politics.

It's rather disingenuous of you to accuse one side of being motivated by politics but not the other.

As is dismissing scientist you disagree with as "shills" because you disagree with their findings.

Start by absorbing this first https://skepticalscience.com/surface-temperature-measurements-advanced.htm a pretty good page with links to the data and model source code. Which incidentally disproves those tired canards that the denialists are so fond of.

Commonsense said...

So when climate models don't agree with actual observations then the observations must be wrong.

It's not settled science. The hypothesis is seriously wrong. And data is being changed to support the hypothesis in contradiction to accepted scientific method.

Does that cover it?
