[OP-ED]: It’s getting harder to tell the journalists from the performers

 06/26/2017 - 08:29
En abril de 2015, mientras trabajaba como corresponsal político en jefe para Politico, Thrush envió una serie inapropiada de emails al presidente de la campaña de Hillary Clinton, John Poodesta. En uno de ellos, Thrush dijo a Podesta que estaba trabajando en una historia de recaudación de fondos y preguntó:”¿Puedo mandarte un par de párrafos, extraoficialmente, para asegurarme de que no meto la pata en nada?”. nytimes.com

Americans sense that Big Media is a big mess, but they can’t put their finger on why that is. 

Memory takes me back to August 1997, when I arrived in Phoenix to start my first full-time newspaper job as a general assignment reporter. I was greeted by the managing editor, an old-school journalist who spelled out the rules of the profession and made clear what he expected from me.

[OP-ED]: Preparing for the next panic -- or not

 06/06/2017 - 17:15
The “American economy will need a coordinated response, particularly if the entire financial system suffers a panic or lack of liquidity.” Bankruptcy judges cannot provide this response. It is best left to the Treasury, Federal Reserve and FDIC.
English

When the next financial crisis hits -- an event that may be years or decades away -- we will learn whether this Congress and the president drew the right lessons from the 2008-09 financial crisis. Congress is arguing over whether government can avoid “bailouts” of large financial institutions and still prevent a full-blown crisis. With all of President Trump’s trials and tribulations, hardly anyone is paying attention.

Trump Vs. Comey: Imprudence or conspiracy?
