News Roundup for Thursday, May 18, 2017

ROGER AILES 1940-2017

Ailes, Former Fox News CEO and an architect of normalizing hate speech, sexism, and the corporate oligarchy has died at 77. Ailes was a brilliant propagandist, and former Nixon operative. And he was a key player in creating the fear-based and low-information Republican voter-base that helped deliver us Donald Trump. It’s a shame how many people got skunked by people like him.

DIRTY POLITICS, NATIONAL

PAY TRUMP BRIBES HERE: Maybe POTUS regrets owning the hotel just down the street from 1600. It’s easy to troll him there, and all the tourists can see it 

DIRTY POLITICS, LOCAL

Smog alert: It’s hot and you might be feeling that ground ozone

Mahwah to Ramapoughs: Remove tepees immediately: The tribe is in open protest against an oil pipeline

Any Half-Decent Hacker Could Break Into Mar-A-Lago. Trump’s Bedminster property too. That’s why these places aren’t the summer White House (good work Pro-Publica)

TRENTONIA

NJ PRIMARY TUESDAY JUNE 6

Where is justice for Terence Crutcher?
