President Trump defended his weekend remarks over the white supremacist rally and counterprotests in Charlottesville, Va., laying “blame on both sides” for the violence, but his words sent mixed messages.
A recent survey on the public’s view of national institutions elicited headlines that suggested a tale of backwardness and ignorance. One example: “Majority of Republicans Think Higher Education is Bad for America.”
The reality is more complex.
A violent group stormed the National Assembly building in Caracas, Venezuela, assaulting opposition MPs holding a special session in commemoration of Independence Day.
Conservatives insist that CNN is DOA.
That’s nonsense. Ratings are high and profits are up. All this since the man who made a fortune by building up Donald Trump as a television star -- Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN who used to run NBC -- seems to have decided that there is more money to be made from tearing down Trump now that he is president.
Picture this: Taco fixins in a tortilla cone. A flour tortilla cone, no less.
It comes to you courtesy of a new Food Network explainer video titled “Taco Cones are the New Tacos” in which a young Asian-American woman demonstrates how to “eat two tacos at the same time” by baking tortillas into an ice cream cone shape, filling them with ground beef and adding toppings.
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.
Journalist Ana Vanessa Herrero explains the challenges of being a reporter in a country in chaos, where national media has been taken under control of Nicolas Maduro's government.
Argentine reporter Leila Guerriero knows how to deal with writing feature stories, that style often being used in Latin America to write about conflict and more marginal stories, but she is now bringing that kind of writing to science and innovation.
“Elián,” a recently released documentary about the saga of Elián González, the little Cuban castaway that became a worldwide cause célèbre 17 years ago, is bringing back painful memories of the Cold War-induced bitter political battle between South Florida Cuban-Americans and Cubans on the island. At a time when President Trump seems poised to reverse Barack Obama’s measures and go back to a Cuba policy of hostility and irrationality, the film becomes even more distressing.
My fellow Americans, I have to ask: What happened to good manners? When did being civil go out of style? When did we decide that kindness equals weakness? When did the idea of conducting yourself well -- especially in public -- become quaint?
A total of 126 members of the media have been killed since 2000 in Mexico, one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists to work.
Javier Valdez, known for his award-winning coverage of the drug trade in Mexico, was killed Monday in the western city of Culiacan, Sinaloa. Eleven journalists were murdered and 426 attacks on the media were registered in Mexico in 2016.
Media giant 21st Century Fox on Wednesday announced the ouster of Fox News television host Bill O"Reilly amid accusations of sexual harassment presented against him.
New calls for President Trump to release his tax returns came amid furor over the White House’s decision to no longer share visitor logs. That bars the public from knowing who has access to officials, even as Mr. Trump fills top jobs with former consultants and lobbysts.
David A. Fahrenthold won the prize for national reporting, with the judges citing stories that examined Trump's charitable foundation and called into question whether the real estate magnate was as generous as he claimed.

Latinos officially outnumber whites in California, but they have a very small representation in Hollywood. Among those who break their way into the industry are the DACA recipients, also called DREAMers.
It’s time to take control of Medicaid before it takes control of us. Unless we act -- and there is little evidence that we will -- Medicaid increasingly becomes another mechanism by which government skews spending toward the old and away from the young.
In 2011, billionaire Peter Thiel made headlines when he announced that he would pay 20 teenagers $100,000 each to drop out or delay college and start businesses in biotechnology, finance, energy and education.
Thiel, the co-founder of PayPal, a venture capitalist and early investor in Facebook, wanted to underscore his belief that college costs too much, isn’t as intellectually rigorous as it once was, and leaves recent grads burdened with student loans that keep them from taking the entrepreneurial risks needed to spur the economy.
There was a brief moment after Donald Trump’s election when it was conceivable to ask whether he would strive to be a “uniter” or a “divider.” The moment passed quickly as Trump made it clear that he does not intend to abandon the style of politics -- insulting and divisive -- that got him elected. His declaration last week that the news media are “the enemy of the American people” is but the latest reminder.
Shaun King, a civil rights activist and senior justice writer for the New York Daily News, had to preface his response to the recent hate crime committed against a disabled Chicago-area man with four full paragraphs of disavowal before making this point:
Si no sabe quién es Stephen MiIler, usted es una persona con suerte. Es decir, ¿por qué querría alguien conocer a un racista miserable, otro extraño hombrecillo que, al igual que el fiscal general Jeff Sessions, su antiguo jefe, solo es grande en su capacidad para el odio y la discriminación?
If you don’t know who Stephen MiIler is, you are lucky. I mean, why would anybody want to meet a vile bigot, another weird little man who, like attorney general Jeff Sessions, is big only in hate and racism?
Senator Bob Casey is fighting for a reform of ICE and DHS processes for asylum seekers.
