On NPR’s Morning Edition... a story on yesterday’s failed vote on Debo Adegbile began “a handful of southern Democrats joined Republicans yesterday to defeat president Obama’s choice to head the Justice Department’s civil rights division.” For what it’s worth the Democrats who voted no: Chris Coons (Del.) Bob Casey (Pa.) Mark Pryor (Ark.) Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) Joe Manchin (W.V.) Joe Donnelly (Ind.) John Walsh (Mont.) And of course Harry Reid (Nev.) who did it for procedural grounds. Not exactly Sons of the Confederacy. -Jonah Goldberg

Berlin — It has been a rough several weeks for Der Spiegel magazine — one of Germany’s most respected news outlets. First, the online Spiegel website published a premature obituary of George H. W. Bush, who had been hospitalized. The obituary titled “The Better Bush” depicted Bush senior as a “colorless” politician while bashing his son, George W., in a decidedly slanted view of the two presidents.

GQ Magazine published an article Thursday attacking President Donald Trump for failing to call for the death penalty for Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock.
The piece was quickly followed with a correction since Paddock was already dead and could thus not be given the death penalty.
“An earlier version of this article used a headline noting that Trump had publicly called for the death penalty in the New York attack, but not the Las Vegas shooting in particular. That discrepancy is probably related to the fact that the Las Vegas shooter is dead. We regret the error,” GQ’s correction reads.

Appearing as a panel member for CNN's live election coverage on Saturday, liberal CNN political commentator and Daily Beast columnist Sally Kohn hyperbolically predicted that a President Donald Trump would put people in "internment camps" and get rid of habeas corpus when it was her turn to give final thoughts on the day's news...
"And I'm worried. When he institutes internment camps and suspends habeas, we'll all look back and feel pretty bad."

The Associated Press had to retract a photo it released on July 27 with the caption, “The shallow meltwater lake is occurring due to an unusually warm period.” “In fact, the water accumulates in this way every summer,” AP admitted in a note to editors, adding that the photo was doubly misleading because “the camera used by the North Pole Environment Observatory has drifted hundreds of miles from its original position, which was a few dozen miles from the pole.”

David Keene said Gregory should not be prosecuted for holding up the magazine during his show, “Meet The Press,” on Sunday while making a point about gun laws during an interview with NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre. “I really think what David Gregory did while he was inadvertently flouting the law was illustrating in a very graphic, perhaps not intentionally, but in a graphic way just how silly some of these laws are,” Keene said during an appearance on CNN's "Newsroom."
