ZitatMonday's Washington Post brings us, on Page 1 above the fold, the third classic of the first 100 days of reporting: A story about the coming "reorganization" of government—this time by Prince Jared, the president's son-in-law. Young Jared, who owes his power to 1) the womb he emerged from and 2) the princess he married, is about to be charged with "sweeping authority to overhaul the federal bureaucracy and fulfill key campaign promises," as the Post puts it. http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/03/the-three-lame-stories-the-press-writes-about-every-president-214960
ZitatSo how could Kushner revolutionize the federal bureaucracy? "I have no fucking idea," Kamarck says. "And they don't either."http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/3/28/15075416/kushner-solve-opioid-crisis
ZitatTrump has repeatedly tweeted about how the Times was "forced to apologize" for its reporting. That claim has also been repeated by right-wing media outlets.

ZitatA supervisor at the Energy Department's international climate office told staff this week not to use the phrases "climate change," "emissions reduction" or "Paris Agreement" in written memos, briefings or other written communication, sources have told POLITICO.Employees of DOE's Office of International Climate and Clean Energy learned of the ban at a meeting Tuesday, the same day President Donald Trump signed an executive order at EPA headquarters to reverse most of former President Barack Obama's climate regulatory initiatives. Officials at the State Department and in other DOE offices said they had not been given a banned words list, but they had started avoiding climate-related terms in their memos and briefings given the new administration's direction on climate change.[...]At the meeting, senior officials told staff the words would cause a "visceral reaction" with Energy Secretary Rick Perry, his immediate staff, and the cadre of White House advisers at the top of the department.http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/energy-department-climate-change-phrases-banned-236655
ZitatA DOE spokeswoman denied there had been a new directive. "No words or phrases have been banned for this office or anyone in the department,"
ZitatAls Nepotismus kann man es betrachten, dass US-Präsident John F. Kennedy in sein Kabinett seinen Bruder Robert F. Kennedy als Justizminister aufnahm. Eine solche Ernennung gab es in der amerikanischen Geschichte weder zuvor noch danach. Nach Kennedys Präsidentschaft wurde der Nepotismus in den USA gesetzlich verboten, wonach bei Ämtervergaben keine nahen Verwandten berücksichtigt werden dürfen.

ZitatIs Donald Trump Actually Donating His Presidential Salary?He won't show the public any paperwork that says so.[...]Nor does it come as a surprise now, in the wake of Trump's first pay cycle as president, that MSNBC reports there is no evidence that Trump has fulfilled his promise. With his second monthly check set to arrive any day, neither the White House, the Treasury Department, nor the Office of Personnel Management, were able to furnish any details or documentation as to where Trump's first $33,333 monthly paycheck had gone, nor where his next paycheck would go. (On Monday afternoon, White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that the president would donate his salary at the end of the year "and he's asked that you all determine where it goes.")[...]Perhaps, like he did before when accepting money meant for charity, Trump is saving up to buy more $20,000 portraits of himself.http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/03/donald-trump-salary-donation

Zitathttp://fair.org/home/conspiracy-theorists-welcome-in-corporate-media-if-they-have-the-right-targets/Here is an incomplete list of outlandish claims made by Mensch over the past six months[...]Like Trump, Mensch occasionally lets out a wink and a nod that she's in on the scam, and, also like Trump, she knows her loyal, hyper-partisan followers don't really care. She tells them what they want to hear, and they in turn feed off her increasingly tantalizing dot-connecting, each legitimizing the other.
ZitatThe reality is the acceptability of conspiracy theories depends on whom the theory is directed at. The greatest, most consequential conspiracy theory of our generation was that Saddam Hussein had a secret Weapons of Mass Destruction program and was plotting to attack the US. The narrative met all the criteria for a good conspiracy theory—cherry-picked evidence, spurious dot-connecting, the rejection of inconvenient facts—but was widely embraced by most of the Western pundit class. Indeed, those who peddled it the hardest were not only allowed to remain in polite society, they were elevated to the highest positions in US media.
ZitatSecretary of State Rex Tillerson has remained relatively removed from President Trump's administration and his own department, a new report by The Washington Post says, adding that many diplomats have yet to meet him and some have been told to avoid eye contact.The Post report reads: "Most of his interactions are with an insular circle of political aides who are new to the State Department. Many career diplomats say they still have not met him, and some have been instructed not to speak to him directly — or even make eye contact."http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/326655-diplomats-instructed-to-avoid-eye-contact-with-tillerson-report
