The same week that America’s federal government plunged deeper into a governance crisis from misconduct by President Trump and members of his professed Law-&-Order administration, many Philadelphians took a big step towards restoring the vitality of democracy with their participation in the primary election.

Candidates seeking a victory in the May 16, 2017 primary election for District Attorney in Philadelphia have spent months making big promises to initiate reforms and ‘restore integrity’ to that post now polluted by the presence of current DA Seth Williams who is facing a federal trial for a slew of corruption charges.

[OP-ED]: The elite media -- self-absorbed but not self-aware

 05/12/2017 - 09:17
Now that Trump is president, you can turn to just about any channel -- absent Fox News -- and hear reporters and anchors accusing Trump or other administration officials of outright lying or pursuing policies that will hurt people -- or, in the case of the GOP health care bill, actually kill them. 
English

Riddle me this: How can the so-called elite media be so self-absorbed and still have so little self-awareness? 

Today’s journalists too often make themselves the story. If a reporter gets arrested at a protest, he’ll be on the Sunday shows doing what he is not supposed to be doing: expressing his opinion.

[OP-ED]: Los medios de elite, ensimismados pero sin conocerse a sí mismos

 05/12/2017 - 08:47
Ahora que Trump es presidente, uno puede prender casi cualquier canal—menos Fox News—para escuchar a reporteros y locutores que acusan a Trump o a otros funcionarios del gobierno directamente de mentir o de perseguir políticas que perjudicarán a las personas—o, en el caso de la ley de asistencia médica del Partido Republicano, que en realidad las matará. 
Spanish

 Aclárenme lo siguiente: ¿Cómo pueden, los así llamados medios de elite, estar tan ensimismados y al mismo tiempo conocerse tan poco a sí mismos? 

Los periodistas de hoy a menudo se convierten en la noticia. Si arrestan a un reportero en una manifestación, ese individuo se presenta después en los programas del domingo haciendo lo que no debe hacer: expresando su opinión.
