NEW YORK TIMES
— Americans Trust Police More Than Congress, Study Finds – Heather Murphy
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/20/us/trust-congress-military-police.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Americans trust police officers, military leaders and local public officials more than members of Congress, tech leaders and journalists, according to a study published by the Pew Research Center on Thursday. . .Trust in journalists varied depending on the question and the respondent’s political affiliation. Roughly half of Americans said journalists care about people like them, whereas nearly as many — 46 percent — said journalists rarely care. Republicans’ belief that journalists would fairly cover all sides of an issue (31 percent) was dramatically lower than Democrats’ (74 percent). Two-thirds of Americans think that journalists behave unethically some or most of the time.)

— Democrats Cite Discredited SPLC to Sic the IRS on Conservative ‘Hate Groups’ – TYLER O’NEIL
https://pjmedia.com/trending/dems-cite-discredited-splc-to-sic-the-irs-on-hate-groups/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yet (LaHood) also warned that “the IRS should not be used as a political tool to discriminate against organizations that differ in viewpoints. … We cannot use political disagreement as a metric to define hate speech or a hate group. This type of labeling can and has led to violent acts.” “I know my colleague just referenced the Southern Poverty Law Center,” LaHood said. “In 2012, an armed man named Floyd Lee Corkins walked into the Family Research Council Washington headquarters with the intent to shoot and kill as many of its employees as possible. He was apprehended, but not before wounding the non-profit’s business manager. Mr. Corkins later told the FBI that he had seen the nonprofit group listed as an anti-gay hate group on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website.” LaHood did not call for the IRS to revoke the SPLC’s non-profit status (although some, notably Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), have called for an investigation, not because the SPLC is liberal but because it only targets Republicans for its accusations of “hate.”). He merely joined other Republicans in warning that government attempts to crack down on “hate” could discriminate against lawful organizations based on their political viewpoints.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Pew Research survey released in March found that 81 percent of voters who called themselves independents actually lean toward the Republican or Democratic party, leaving only 7 percent of Americans who say they don’t lean toward a party. Strategists say that trend is reflected on the 2020 trail, where President Trump has been primarily focused on rallying his base, using a number of tactics such as calling for a wall along the southern border and attacking prominent Democrats.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Democrats and Republicans Aren’t Just Divided. They Live in Different Worlds. The two parties represent radically different slices of the American economy.- Aaron Zitner, Dante Chinni, Jessica Wang, and Danny Dougherty (DIERSEN: Who do you have little in common with? I have little in common with those who are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.wsj.com/graphics/red-economy-blue-economy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America’s political polarization is almost complete. Its two main political parties increasingly represent two different economies. And they barely overlap. Democrats can be found in educated cities and suburbs where professional jobs are plentiful. Republicans live in working-class and rural communities, home to agriculture and low-skill manufacturing. . .Household income tells a similar story. A decade ago, median household income was about the same for each party. Since then, it has jumped nearly 17% in Democratic districts while falling 3% in Republican ones. . .Republican districts, by contrast, hold growing shares of the nation’s agriculture, mining and low-skill manufacturing jobs, many of which do not require a college degree, have lower pay and are more exposed to overseas competition. . .People with college degrees are more concentrated in Democratic districts than in Republican districts. . .Why does this matter? “When folks have less in common with one another, it’s hard to expect that they’re going to see the problem the same way,” said Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union, “let alone recognize that a problem exists.”)

— How to Calculate Damages in a Slander Case (DIERSEN: I should sue those who have slandered me. Their slandering me has caused me to lose a tremendous amount of income.) 
https://www.hg.org/legal-articles/how-to-calculate-damages-in-a-slander-case-38152

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Actual damages can be calculated to a certain dollar amount. They include all those damages that the plaintiff directly suffered due to the slander. This may include lost wages, lost earning capacity or loss of business opportunities. These may include the actual amounts lost or the amounts that are likely to be lost because of the slander. To calculate lost earnings, the plaintiff can add up the wages that he or she lost from being out of work because of the slanderous statement. This also includes any employment benefits that were lost, such as using sick days or paid time off to deal with the slanderous statement. Lost earning capacity is more difficult to prove and generally requires expert testimony. An expert may have to testify about how the plaintiff’s diminished earning capacity will affect his or her lifetime earnings. For example, if a person was working a $100,000 job and the slander caused him or her to be fired and to be ostracized from the position and was only able to earn $50,000, the annual amount of damages would start at $50,000. Reasonable pay increases based on the individual’s employment record would also be taken into consideration, as well as his or her prospects for promotion. Inflation may also be taken into consideration. An expert may have to evaluate a variety of evidence in order to determine the difference between the plaintiff’s projected earnings before the slander in order to compare these with the projected earnings after the slander. The economic expert may examine the plaintiff’s tax returns, the current and projected economic state and the industry in which the plaintiff is employed and was employed. If the plaintiff was a business owner, his or her losses may include the loss of existing clients and the lost business opportunities. Former clients may be called to testify that they stopped doing business because of the slander. An economic expert may be necessary to testify about the economic impact of such lost business opportunities and business goodwill.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— The 2020 presidential race hits Illinois: Delegate petition drives kick off Oct. 5 Though the Democratic presidential campaigns are focusing on the early state votes in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada in February, the contenders can’t ignore Illinois because the March 17 presidential primary comes early enough that it may make a difference. – Lynn Sweet 
https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2019/9/18/20873191/2020-presidential-race-hits-illinois-delegates-start-petition-drives-oct-5-biden
(FROM THE ARTICLE: That’s the reason all the major presidential contenders must pay attention to Illinois when it comes to organizing delegate slates for each of the 18 congressional districts in Illinois. The Democrats, unlike the Republicans, insist on diverse slates, and have a lot of rules to make sure the slates are balanced for, among other factors, gender, race, national origin, sexual orientation and religion, with all this spelled out in the 47 pages of the Democratic Party of Illinois delegate selection plan.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Waubonsee students who are part of the national group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlan — MEChA — said they were disappointed to not have notice of the visit because they said it silenced them. The group works to spread awareness of immigrant rights, help connect students who are underrepresented minorities and help first-generation students navigate higher education, group leaders said. While touring Jefferson High School in Rockford Monday, dozens of protestors, many wearing red T-shirts, carried signs and gathered outside the school to greet DeVos, according to the Rockford Register Star. “Waubonsee tends to show this image that we have a very diverse student population, but we had someone from the Trump administration who has attacked our communities here,” said Giselle Gonzalez, Waubonsee sophomore and president of the MEChA group at the school. . .“At a place like our college where there is a large population of Latinx students, that’s something the school should have thought twice about before letting her come on campus,” Rodriguez said. “It just doesn’t feel safe to be surprised like that.”)

But he declined to say who he thinks was responsible, other than that he doesn’t believe the governor’s office “had anything to do with it.” “I’m not going to engage in that myself,” he said.)

https://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/michael-foust/chick-fil-a-s-sales-have-doubled-since-lgbt-boycott-began-in-2012.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit,” he told the Biblical Recorder. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.” Cathy’s comments led to calls for boycotts and pledges by mayors in Boston and Chicago to oppose new restaurants opening in their cities. That, in turn, led Mike Huckabee to launch a Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day on Aug. 1, 2012. Hundreds of thousands of customers took part, and the chain broke sales records for a single day.)

FREEDOM’S JOURNAL
— RACIST EXAM QUESTIONS? – Walter E. Williams (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs are nasty. If you sought a government office or political office, what would your critics/opponents stress to paint you as being “not the brightest bulb?” My critics/opponents would stress that while I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt, my scores were not that high. They would stress that while I earned a bachelor’s degree in management and master’s degrees in management, accounting, and finance, my grades were not that high. They would stress that I became the following not by passing examinations, but by grandfathering in: Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant. One of my critics/opponents has publicly stressed that he got better scores than I did on the CPA examination.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Google, Facebook Cozy Up to News Publishers as Regulators Circle Facing mounting antitrust probes, tech platforms offer fees, news-ranking changes media outlets have pursued for years – Lukas I. Alpert (DIERSEN: What do you say to those websites that unethically make “quick rehashes of existing articles” look like “original reporting?” I have never done that, and I never will. GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails highlight the sources of articles, the titles of articles, the authors of articles, and their unhidden hyperlinks.) 
https://www.wsj.com/articles/google-facebook-cozy-up-to-publishers-as-regulators-circle-11568799001
(FROM THE ARTICLE: ‘We understand the critical importance of rewarding publishers that put their resources into original reporting,’ said Facebook executive Campbell Brown. . .Google last week announced changes to how it ranks stories on its news page to better promote original content, addressing publishers’ long-running complaints that their scoops were often overshadowed by quick rewrites by other outlets. . .Google executives said the prospect of regulation didn’t influence their effort to better promote original news, adding that technological advances had finally allowed the company to address a longstanding concern among publishers. “The challenge of identifying and precisely ranking original reporting has taken years to address and has proven extremely difficult,” said Richard Gingras, Google’s vice president for news. “What has changed is that we now have a lot more technical capabilities than we had 10 years ago.” Facebook has expressed a commitment to improving its partnerships with news outlets, particularly those that publish legitimate, high-quality reporting. “We understand the critical importance of rewarding publishers that put their resources into original reporting, which is why it’s been one of our guiding principles for the news tab since we decided to develop the product earlier this year,” said Campbell Brown, Facebook’s vice president for global news partnerships. “It’s important to get this right.” The outlets Facebook pitched on its news tab include the Journal’s publisher, Dow Jones, people familiar with the matter said. While many in the news industry welcomed Google’s algorithm tweak to help original reporting rank higher on Google News, several said they would reserve judgment until they could ascertain whether the change was making an impact. “With all of these things, you don’t know what it means until you see it in practice,” said David Chavern, president and chief executive of the News Media Alliance, a trade coalition representing some 2,000 news organizations in the U.S. and Canada, including Dow Jones. Mr. Gingras wrote in a blog post last week that Google had made changes to keep stories containing significant original reporting higher in search rankings for longer. . .News Corp, the Journal’s parent company, has been developing a news-aggregation service called Knewz.com that is designed, in part, to promote original reporting over quick rehashes of existing articles. . .“Those of us who do a lot of original reporting are thrilled Google is fixing this frustrating bug, but we’re still waiting for Google and some other platforms to follow Facebook’s lead in recognizing the real value they extract from our original journalism,” said Ben Smith, BuzzFeed’s editor in chief.)

Those topics ranged from homelessness and affordable housing to transparency and also LGBTQ rights.)

https://dccc.org/house-freedom-fund-endorses-jeanne-ives-adding-fuel-fire-full-blown-gop-civil-war-il-06s-primary/
(DIERSEN HEADLINE: With Tea Party Endorsement, A Race to the Right has Officially Begun Earlier this week, the ultra-conservative House Freedom Fund announced its endorsement of Jeanne Ives, throwing fuel onto an already divisive primary that’s brewing in Illinois’ 6th district. This comes on the heels of Washington Insiders and Republican establishment naming Evelyn Sanguetti to House Republicans’ watch list of their top campaigns. As Washington insiders and Chicago fat cats pick their ponies, Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti will have to work hard to out-conservative each other to see who can ultimately lock-down the pinnacle: President Trump’s endorsement. “Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti have already made it clear to voters in this district that they’re more interested in getting the support of President Trump and out of touch Washington insiders than they are of people in the 6th Congressional District,” said DCCC Spokesperson, Andy Orellana.)

GOOGLE
— Elevating original reporting in Search – Richard Gingras (DIERSEN: What do you say to those websites that unethically make “quick rehashes of existing articles” look like “original reporting?” I have never done that, and I never will. GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails highlight the sources of articles, the titles of articles, the authors of articles, and their unhidden hyperlinks.)
https://blog.google/products/search/original-reporting/
(FROM THE POSTING: With news in particular, we always aim to show a diversity of articles and sources to give users as much context and insight as possible. An important element of the coverage we want to provide is original reporting, an endeavor which requires significant time, effort and resources by the publisher. Some stories can also be both critically important in the impact they can have on our world and difficult to put together, requiring reporters to engage in deep investigative pursuits to dig up facts and sources. These are among the reasons why we aim to support these industry efforts and help people get access to the most authoritative reporting. Recently, we’ve made ranking updates and published changes to our search rater guidelines to help us better recognize original reporting, surface it more prominently in Search and ensure it stays there longer. This means readers interested in the latest news can find the story that started it all, and publishers can benefit from having their original reporting more widely seen.)
