Who cares about Trump! Fires burning out of control around Malibu

I do not want to see any more news coverage of crazy Donald Trump today. Instead, I want to see real news coverage about these horrible fires raging around Malibu and environs! This is terrible! I was transfixed watching the live coverage from LA this afternoon about these wildfires. The entire city of Malibu is…

A day of pipe bomb near-mayhem in the USA

I don’t call the place the Upset States for nothing. Pipe bombs sent today to Ex-Pres. Obama, the Clintons, George Soros, CNN, etc. There is just too much hate in the ‘States these days. Lock the perpetrator up! America right now. Playing out live on @CNN pic.twitter.com/aCRGG4xoW2 — Don Lemon (@donlemon) October 24, 2018 Needless…

My reaction to Crimetown

The W5 piece that aired Saturday called “Crimetown”, about crime in North Battleford, is exactly what I expected. It was sensational, painted a bleak picture of the city and exaggerated the true state of the crime situation. That said, there was one part of the documentary that really got my attention. It was the point…

This Brett Kavanaugh gong show promises to hit new heights Thursday

Thursday is the day when the U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh in D.C. will hear from Christine Blasey Ford with her accusations of a sexual assault at a high school party years ago. This hearing will get maximum TV coverage, from all the news channels, but I don’t know if I want…

Topics for future blog posts

I have nothing to say today, I want to relax and enjoy what is left of summer, even though it really looks more like fall around here right now. I just wanted to list off some topics for future blog posts, just so I don’t forget about them: Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings hijacked by sexual…

NFL season opens tonight in Philly! Eventually.

After a hectic last several days, including a Labour Day in which I was definitely “on assignment”, I have tonight and these next three days off! So, that said, the NFL season opens tonight with Atlanta Falcons at the Philadelphia Eagles, and I plan to tune in to that when it eventually stops raining. I…

Prince George, BC gets completely blacked out by the wildfire smoke

Another wildfire update to tell you about; it really is getting ridiculous. I thought I had seen it all when our own atmosphere went completely orange 🍊in midweek. Other places have gone completely dark. Check out Prince George, BC, which was totally blacked out today by this wildfire smoke. I understand it was also a…

Now, more than a few words on the media’s latest gang-up on Trump

Today I want to say a few words about President Donald Trump and the media. As you know the relationship has not been good, with Trump calling them out for “fake news” and for being the “enemy of the people”. This week, about 300+ newspapers ran a coordinated series of editorials in opposition to Trump…

The queen of soul, Aretha Franklin, has died today.

The news today is that Aretha Franklin has died, on the exact same date that Elvis Presley died 41 years before. Also, I understand Fox News is in trouble for mixing up Aretha Franklin with Patti LaBelle.

Tragedy in Toronto: mass shooting in the Danforth

There have been way too many stories lately about violence in the city of Toronto. Last night, more tragedy: a gunman, now deceased, went on a shooting rampage in the Greektown area of the Danforth where two people were killed and 13 more injured. This news comes right after the city of Toronto had deployed…

Trump throws US intelligence community under the bus at Helsinki summit!

Well, this lousy summit meeting Pres. Donald Trump had with Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin in Helsinki was a big success, all right — for Putin. President Trump declines to side with US intelligence that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Instead, Trump repeatedly asked about the Democratic National Committee's email server and Hillary Clinton's…

Pres. Donald Trump does the Trump thing again; torches Iran nuclear deal

I don’t know why presidential-watchers still insist that President Donald Trump is unpredictable. He isn’t! This latest decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and re-impose sanctions is soooooooo Trump. Any major policy that came in during the Obama administration will always be first in line to get the chop from Trump. This ought…

Sorry for not posting, folks — busy, busy

I’ve been MIA due to a flood of work assignments this week. So I haven’t been able to post news about the alligator attack at Disney World, or the shooting death of a Labour MP in the UK, or any of that. Which is just as well. It really has been a rough time. Tonight,…

Ghomeshi says he’s sorry in court today

I guess Jian Ghomeshi didn’t get off totally scott-free today after all — he also had to give an apology. Story here. Also, his lawyer’s comments in court here. 

The news today has been all-around bad

I don’t have a lot to say tonight, but I notice it has been another one of those bad days in the news business, and for the news business. For one thing, there is all the bad news about layoffs at CTV and TSN hitting local news, radio news, and shows like TSN’s Off the Record…

Sorry folks, I went to a movie and had no time to post about all the news

Well, I have had no time to give my thoughts on the launch of the Hillary Clinton campaign, or the launch of the Marco Rubio campaign, or about Rand Paul feuding with the reporters, or about President Barack Obama in Panama with Raul Castro, or about the Aaron Hernandez verdict, or any of that.  What happened is I covered a city council…

Scary situation in Ottawa with the shootings on Parliament Hill

Terrifying day here in Canada as that awful shooting situation unfolded on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, with Parliament itself in lockdown. I am just getting caught up on the latest news myself, so for the latest here is the CBC, CTV, and Global. Also I have posted below footage captured inside Parliament by the Globe…

Another high-flying News from Nowhere

Welcome to another News from Nowhere, and this week it is going to be brief because this is summer and I’d rather spend the rest of tonight, and this week for that matter, listening to baseball games. Anyway, the big news this past week has been all about airplane crashes and about airlines not flying…
