ABC7
— Police report reveals new details on Naperville Buffalo Wild Wings racist incident – Terrell Brown
https://abc7chicago.com/society/police-report-reveals-new-details-on-naperville-buffalo-wild-wings-racist-incident/5696571/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Reverend Jesse Jackson is working with the victims of a racist incident at a Naperville Buffalo Wild Wings to get corporate commitments to avoid a boycott of the chain. . .There are now threats of a national boycott if Buffalo Wild Wings doesn’t make improvements. Jackson said he and Rainbow PUSH Coalition will stand with the families to come up with a path forward. He is looking for commitments from the company to stave off a boycott. “Not only that the family get the proper apology that they deserve, but more than that,” Jackson said. “Not only is equal treatment at stake but equal access to franchises and construction. We cannot just be customers, we must be partners in the process.” Buffalo Wild Wings said the company has been in touch with the families and the governor, and is implementing new anti-racism policies in hiring and management practices and welcomes constructive feedback. Apologies alone at this point won’t be enough. “Because that would not have been sufficient for Dr. King as it related to Miss Rosa Parks getting an apology from the bus company,” said Bishop Tavis Grant. “We need systematic constructive change. The roots out uproots racism at its very core.” Jackson stressed he wants to avoid a boycott. Buffalo Wild Wings said 22 percent of its franchises are minority-owned, and by 2020 their largest franchise will be African-American owned. The company has 1,200 restaurants, and operates around the world.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Customer linked to race-related incident at Buffalo Wild Wings was known by staff for racist comments, Naperville police reports show – SUZANNE BAKER
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-naperville-police-buffalo-wild-wings-racist-st-1114-20191114-teiqz4avvvbazbt2m6zw4s74rq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to the police report, a man with a swastika tattoo and his female acquaintance told police they had been regulars at the restaurant for the last two to three years, visiting almost every Saturday to watch college football and hockey. The couple had been sitting at a table for four in the restaurant for about two hours when staff seated the group of 18 directly behind them, the police report said. Both the man and woman told investigators they never spoke with any of the members of the large group nor did they ask employees to move the group. The woman told police she pulled their table 5 to 10 inches away from the group so servers could move more freely between the tables. According to police reports, the man told an investigator that Buffalo Wild Wings employees “had heard him make racist jokes and comments in the past.” As a result, some members of the staff “took it upon themselves to tell the large group of (redacted) that they needed to move due to (redacted) being a racist.” . . . One employee told police “the couple has made several negative comments in the past about black people.” A restaurant manager told police that after the Oct. 26 incident, several employees reported past inappropriate conduct from the couple. The manager said he had been unaware of the previous conduct. “If someone other than a Caucasian employee would bring them food, (redacted) would refuse the food and send it back to the kitchen,” the police report stated. One of the employees, in a written statement to police, blamed miscommunication by the staff for the drama on Oct. 26. Marshall said authorities found no evidence of a hate crime and no charges were filed as a result of the incident. A member of the Buffalo Wild Wings corporate communications team previously said the company fired two employees involved in the incident and banned the man employees identified as racist from its restaurants.)

AMERICAN FREE PRESS
— Meet the Shills of Fake News – Donald Jeffries
https://americanfreepress.net/meet-the-shills-of-fake-news/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Considering how many Americans pay high tuition costs every year for college degrees in journalism, or go to expensive broadcasting schools, it is instructive to look at the backgrounds of those at the highest levels of the media. On CNN alone, Anderson Cooper is the son of One Percenter Gloria Vanderbilt and was a CIA college recruit for good measure. Chris Cuomo is the son of former politician Mario Cuomo and brother of current New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Among the network’s “senior advisors” are former Barack Obama aide David Axelrod and former White House Fellow under Hillary Clinton Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper started out as press secretary for Democratic congressional candidate Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, and worked for a public relations firm run by Jimmy Carter’s press secretary, Jody Powell, as well as Handgun Control Inc. Several among CNN’s on-air “talent” sit on the boards of big corporations, an all-too-common practice this author exposed in the book Survival of the Richest. Not only do these positions provide lucrative “part-time” income, they represent a clear conflict of interest.)

https://www.wsj.com/articles/californias-board-diversity-tax-11573256678
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats in California work hard to punish businesses and sometimes they succeed without trying. Consider a 2018 law that imposes gender quotas for boards of public companies based in the state, which a new study finds effectively destroyed $60 billion in wealth over night. Last September the state enacted a law requiring all public companies headquartered in California to have at least one female director by the end of 2019 and two by the end of 2021. Democrats claimed that increasing board diversity would benefit corporations. Investors supposedly needed politicians to tell them what was in their best financial interest.)

RAW STORY
— Americans have more debt, need family help to buy homes: report – Agence France-Presse (DIERSEN: I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972 when I was 24 years old. Where did the down payment money come from for your first home? For me, it came from what I had earned and saved a) working for IRS for 15 months in 1971 and 1972 and b) working for Firestone Stores full-time for 7 months and part-time for 18 months 1970-1972. That money also enabled me to buy a new Corvette in 1971 and to pay tuition for graduate business courses at Loyola.)
https://www.rawstory.com/2019/11/americans-have-more-debt-need-family-help-to-buy-homes-report/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The report also showed that more buyers are waiting longer before buying their first home — the median age hit 33 for the first time — and an increasing number are joining forces with friends rather than partners or spouses in order to be able to afford a place in their desired location, the report showed.)

KANKAKEE DAILY JOURNAL
— Party insiders keep public out of loop – David Giuliani (DIERSEN: What if Wheaton’s recent West District City Council vacancy had been filled by a special election? What if the Daily Herald had published lots of information on the 10 candidates including their demographics, how long they lived in the West District and in Wheaton, their work experience, their education, their professional certifications and licenses, etc.? What if there had been candidate forums?)
https://www.daily-journal.com/news/local/david-giuliani-party-insiders-keep-public-out-of-loop/article_b37e8b84-fbf4-11e9-b989-27e219b5c676.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The process to appoint a replacement for state Sen. Toi Hutchinson, D-Olympia Fields, is veiled in secrecy. That’s the way it usually works. Under state law, local party leaders have the right to fill legislative vacancies. Unlike other states, no special elections are held. Because Hutchinson is a Democrat, her party will choose a successor. When asked about it, a local Democratic Party leader revealed there were four applicants for the position but declined to identify them. I’m told Hutchinson’s last day is Sunday. After she resigns, the state party has 30 days to appoint a replacement. Both Democrats and Republicans typically cloak the entire appointment process in secrecy. However, Kankakee County Democratic Chairman John Willard said his party will hold a public meeting, although constituents will be barred from asking questions of candidates. I’m glad a public meeting is planned, but I think candidates should field questions from prospective constituents — something like the interview process for presidential candidates at Kankakee Community College. Why can’t we hold special elections when legislators resign? Both Democrats and Republicans warn that such elections cost taxpayers a lot, while private appointment processes cost practically nothing. That’s an easy argument for them to make because they’re the ones filling vacancies. But it could be argued the costs of special elections are worth the benefits to democracy. Most vacancies occur when legislators resign. The most understandable reason is health. But many others quit because they find higher-paying jobs, often as lobbyists. Hutchinson is leaving to take a $220,000-a-year job in Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration. For years, I have suspected that so many legislators resign in Illinois because party insiders get to appoint replacements. It would be harder to quit mid-term if they knew that taxpayers would foot the bill for a special election. I decided to see how Illinois compares against Iowa, which holds special elections when vacancies occur. I checked on how members of each state’s senate got into office in the first place.)

Those degrees and certifications and that license frustrated their efforts to get rid of me.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— HARDCOPY LETTER TITLE: Mayor Lightfoot, stop scorning Trump – Tim Schneider, Illinois Republican Party chairman, Chicago (DIERSEN: This letter to the editor, and others like it, should be in the inbox of a) every Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain in Illinois, b) every Republican Party leader in Illinois, c) every Republican elected official in Illinois, etc. GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails continue to fill the tremendous Republican communication void in Illinois.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/opinion/letters/ct-letters-vp-110119-20191031-3bddlghmdbdtjdgjpzgqx27e3u-story.html
(FROM THE LETTER TO THE EDITOR: President Donald Trump came to Chicago on Monday and told the truth about our dysfunctional government — and Mayor Lori Lightfoot and the news media got the vapors, gasping that he insulted Chicago and its wonderful citizens. Fake news — again! I was with President Trump over lunch, and listened to his candid and often very humorous assessment of challenges and opportunities for our nation. He demonstrated a grasp of world events that was remarkable, and he laid out his strategy and assessments in plain, direct language. He started with Chicago, “this beautiful place that’s run so poorly.” He recounted his call to the mayor and offer to work together — and shrugged at the silence since. He expressed heartbreak at the ongoing violence in too many neighborhoods, pointing out that it should be inexcusable for some of us not to be better protected by our government. He pointed out how he supported the members of the Chicago Police Department as he mocked the showboating by police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. I witnessed firsthand his rapport with rank-and-file officers and their support for this president. Everything he said reflected a concern for the people of Chicago and a love of this great city, even as he scorned weak leadership. Mere days after the superintendent was found asleep in his car at a stop sign, must we all extol him despite the city’s high crime rate and his evident failures of leadership? Chicago is a wonderful city, but the people of the city and all the amenities it offers, are separate and distinct from our city government. Chicago is great, but our lousy government drags it down. For example, during CTU’s 10-plus-day strike, students languished, once-in-lifetime sporting experiences were missed, as teachers danced to Michael Jackson tunes. And over what? Mayor Lightfoot and the functionally insolvent Chicago Public Schools offered teachers $100,000, along with Cadillac pension and health benefits, for nine months of work each year — as an opening bid! There’s nothing here that should be criticized? So, please give it a rest, Mayor Lightfoot: You should embrace the Trump administration and seek help for our problems. Instead of looking for ways to fight the president, why not sit with him and share ideas on how to improve our home? If by working together you improve or save one life, then you’ve made our great city even better.)
— Twitter’s political ad ban is disingenuous – LEONID BERSHIDSKY (DIERSEN: What if I sought/accepted political ads on www.gopillinois.com and in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails? Which Republican political organizations, activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. would take out ads and what would those ads stress? Would Trump, Republican National Committee (RNC), Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC), etc. take out ads? Would the candidates in contested races on the March 17, 2020 Republican primary ballot in my precinct take out ads? Of course, I would only accept ads that defend/advance the RNC platform and the IRP platform. In the past, GOPUSA ILLINOIS has taken out ads in IRP, DCRCC, and MTRCC publications. Many IRP, DCRCC, MTRCC, etc. leaders read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)

— Make These Tax Moves for 2019 Before It’s Too Late Looking to lower your tax bill? Here are a dozen steps to take as the end of the year approaches. – Laura Saunders (DIERSEN: Trump should increase the $10,000 SALT cap to $20,000 for married filing jointly because the SALT cap discourages marriage and homeownership.) 
https://www.wsj.com/articles/make-these-tax-moves-for-2019-before-its-too-late-11572600606
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The most common itemized deductions are for state and local taxes (SALT), charitable donations and mortgage interest. Now that Congress has limited the SALT deduction to $10,000 per return both for single and married joint filers, it’s often easier for singles than couples to benefit from itemizing. For example, a married couple who deducts the limit of $10,000 of SALT needs more than $14,400 of other deductions to benefit from itemizing for 2019, because their standard deduction is $24,400. But a single filer who deducts $10,000 of SALT only needs other write-offs totaling more than $2,200, because his standard deduction is $12,200.)

DAILY HERALD
— As Trump comes to town, which suburban Republicans will join the bandwagon? – Marni Pyke
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191026/as-trump-comes-to-town-which-suburban-republicans-will-join-the-bandwagon
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some normally easy-to-reach Republican state representatives and senators didn’t return calls asking if they endorse Trump’s reelection or were buying tickets for the fundraising luncheon Monday starting at $2,800 a person. But Sen. Dan McConchie, a conservative Hawthorn Woods Republican, said he would be in Springfield during Trump’s Chicago visit. When asked if he supported Trump’s reelection, McConchie said, “No comment.” Rep. Allen Skillicorn of East Dundee, however, was all in. “Most politicians make promises with no intention to actually fulfill them,” Skillicorn said. “President Donald Trump is different. He has delivered on most of his promises. I’m confident his popularity has gone up in the suburbs versus 2016.” State Sen. Jim Oberweis of Sugar Grove said he supports Trump’s reelection but is not attending Monday’s events. . .”If they’re looking at a general election in a swing district, people need to be really careful how they embrace (Trump),” former Illinois Republican Senate Leader Christine Radogno said. Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider of Bartlett, who will be attending on Monday, was optimistic local Republicans “will support the president at almost a 95 percent rate.” Conservative state Rep. David McSweeney of Barrington Hills intends to back the president over any possible Democratic nominee, but he won’t be at Monday’s Trump events. “I agree with President Trump on cutting taxes and deregulation. I don’t agree with him on everything. For example, I have some disagreements with him on trade and foreign policy,” McSweeney said, clarifying he opposes the president’s abrupt decision to pull troops from the Kurdish occupied area of Syria. Typically when presidents visit, they’re surrounded by top party officials such as governors, senators and congressional representatives. That won’t happen this week with Illinois’ Democratic governor, U.S. senators and suburban House members, although former state Rep. Jeanne Ives of Wheaton hopes to change some of that party balance. Republican Ives, of Wheaton, who is running in the 6th Congressional District against first-term U.S. Rep. Sean Casten, supports Trump’s reelection but has no plans to go to his events on Monday. Asked about grading his job so far, “it depends on the policy or issue,” said Ives, who ran for governor in 2018. Trump might not be the only choice for Illinois voters in the March primary. Former U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh of Mundelein is running for the Republican nomination, although with just $115,000 in his coffers it’s a long shot, said Republican strategist Aaron Del Mar. The Palatine Township Republican committeeman, a friend of Walsh’s, is not only solidly in the Trump camp, but he’s selling tickets for the fundraiser. “I’m not a 100 percent for everything the president says,” Del Mar said.)

FORBES
— The Bitter Truth About Why People Fail To Succeed In Their Jobs – Terina Allen (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents falsely deny that while I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years 1966-1969 and 1971-1997, that virtually all my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran. My critics/opponents falsely deny that while I worked for GAO 1980-1997, the agency was almost always under promotion freezes, that it shrank from about 6,000 employees to about 3,000 employees, and that it suffered tremendous budget cuts during the mid-1990s. My critics/opponents falsely argue that my superiors in the federal government were never under pressure from Democrat politicians a) to hire, retain, and promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females or b) to make way for them by getting rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran and who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40. My critics/opponents falsely dent that extremely few federal employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines. My critics/opponents falsely argue that my Democrat superiors in the federal government did not take adverse actions against me a) because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation or b) because I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: I asked the group of about 200 to share the “real” reasons that they either fired, refused to promote or downgraded a performance review on an employee within the prior two years. This is an aggregate list (in order of number of responses) for what they provided. Employees were fired, not promoted or rated poorly because they 1. didn’t seem to fit with the team, or they didn’t “mesh” in with the organizational culture.)

https://www.mediapost.com/publications/article/342220/publishers-decry-facebooks-power-as-social-networ.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Benioff, who also is CEO of software firm Salesforce, likened Facebook to cigarettes for having addictive powers and harmful effects on kids. “Facebook is addictive, it’s not good for you, they’re after your kids, they’re running political ads that aren’t true … and they’re also acquiring other companies and co-mingling data those companies have on their users into theirs for more power,” he said in an interview with CNN. Benioff isn’t the only media executive who has criticized Facebook. Rupert Murdoch, the News Corp. CEO whose political affiliations are the opposite of Benioff’s, also wants to rein in Facebook. Murdoch is dependent on the social network’s power to drive web traffic. His Fox News website generated more Facebook “engagements” than any other publisher during the third quarter, according to analytics firm NewsWhip. Those engagements keep people glued to Facebook, which is problematic for publishers that want to monetize their own audiences. Facebook reportedly is addressing this issue by offering cash payments to publishers whose articles appear in its news section, but it remains to be seen how lucrative that source of revenue will be.)

https://pjmedia.com/jchristianadams/meet-kyle-frese-trump-hater-federal-employee-arrested-for-leaking-national-security-secrets/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Frese went to college and graduate school in Canada. His posts routinely cover national security and foreign affairs issues. They are also vehemently hostile to Donald Trump and his foreign policy. . .Frese traveled quite a bit. Every month or two, he could be found hiking Kilimanjaro or sipping beer in an Eastern European capital, visiting London or the low countries, Morocco, Berlin, Australia, all in the space of a year or two. It was quite a travel experience for a lowly federal employee. Perhaps it was work-related, all those different destinations. Excessive foreign travel can be a marker for a national security risk. Frese would occasionally quibble with “irresponsible” stories about national security matters. He had the audacity to complain about “unnamed armaments experts providing commentary.” He also had a beef with Senator Marco Rubio citing Psalms. Frese is most likely being held, for now, in the Alexandria City Jail in Virginia. If he is convicted, he can expect to be living in a federal prison. Nobody should consider his hostility toward President Trump an outlier in the federal civil service. Whether it is a whistleblower wound up about Ukraine or the FBI lovebirds, the civil service still cannot cope with the 2016 election results.)

NEWS BUSTERS
— Not Again! Facebook to Launch Human-Curated News – Alexander Hall (DIERSEN: As your GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, I have been a conservative “human-curator” of Illinois political and government news since 2000. Of course, anti-conservatives continue to focus on stopping me from doing that. They especially focus on stopping Republicans in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. If you were me, what would you do increase readership of GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails?) 
https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/techwatch/alexander-hall/2019/10/25/not-again-facebook-launch-human-curated-news
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facebook is launching a “News” tab today, which will provide stories from hundreds of news organizations. This is the second time the social media site tried to decide what is news for its users. The first time exploded under allegations of bias against the right. “Facebook’s service will include some human curation by a small editorial team of journalists, who will select top stories” according to The Washington Post. Much like asking “who fact-checks the fact-checkers,” the question of “who curates the curators” will likely be on conservatives’ minds. After all, based on Facebook’s troubled history with truth, conservatives would be right to be concerned about their commitment to free expression. Facebook previously purged its disgraced Trending topics section after not only being accused of bias, but having its very own workers blow the whistle on its agenda-setting. “[A]ccording to a former journalist who worked on the project,” Gizmodo summarized, “… workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site’s users.” Anne Kornblut, The Post’s former deputy national editor, “is overseeing the team of journalists who will chose [sic] top stories for the ‘News’ tab, according to people familiar with planning for the service,” reported The Post. The participating news organizations whose content will be curated includes “about 200 news organizations, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, News Corp, BuzzFeed News, Business Insider, Bloomberg, Fox News, NBCUniversal, USA Today and The Los Angeles Times. Some of those outlets will be paid for their content, including The Post” The Post noted in an article it published today. If that wasn’t damning enough, many of Facebook’s “news curators” told Gizmodo that they were instructed to “inject” specific stories into the Trending news section. The former curators also claimed that Facebook, in the spirit of self-preservation, discouraged them from including news about Facebook itself. Facebook executives told Axios a few months ago that they would be “hiring seasoned journalists to help curate a forthcoming ‘News Tab’ that they hope will change how millions get news.” Facebook’s mission, as Axios described, is “to restore the sanity and credibility that’s lost in the chaos of our main feeds.” Facebook’s head of news partnerships Campbell Brown, a former news anchor at NBC and CNN, said that algorithms will also be involved. “Our goal with the News tab is to provide a personalized, highly relevant experience … ,” said Brown. “The majority of stories people will see will appear in the tab via algorithmic selection.” For what it’s worth, Zuckerberg has tried to reassure conservatives they will at least attempt to avoid bias. “‘We are monitoring for any kind of bias, both amongst our team and in the product itself,’ Zuckerberg said,” according to Axios’ reporting. “‘Making sure that this ends up being a platform for all different perspectives is obviously going to be very important for this succeeding over the long term.’” Conservatives wary of “diversity” politics may have their hackles raised by the other comments made by Zuckerberg in the same article, however. Facebook claimed to have hired journalists with “real experience” who are a “diverse group who have different backgrounds and views and different nationalities.” News Corp founder Rupert Murdoch explained the rationale in a Jan. 2018 press release, saying, “If Facebook wants to recognize ‘trusted’ publishers then it should pay those publishers a carriage fee similar to the model adopted by cable companies.” He added further that these payments “would have a minor impact on Facebook’s profits but a major impact on the prospects for publishers and journalists.” The news industry seems to approve, and this is yet another step toward their “long-sought goal of having technology companies pay for the content they deliver to users.” This service will also pitFacebook against other “news aggregation services offered by Silicon Valley rivals Google and Apple.” “Facebook will pay publishers for work they already make and then share to the platform, which means it is pure profit,” Vox/Recode summarized about the “News” tab. CNN reporter Oliver Darcy tweeted that Zuckerberg defended “having far-right website Breitbart in its news tab” quoting the Facebook CEO as saying “I think you want to have content that represents different perspectives.” When asked about Breitbart being among the other websites in the news tab Darcy observed how Zuckerberg expressed that all outlets will have to comply with Facebook’s standards.)

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
— Save — and expand — newspaper subscriptions: How federal employees should respond to Donald Trump’s war on the Washington Post and New York Times – DAVID J. VERARDO (DIERSEN: Those who are Christian, conservative, and/or Republican should keep up to date with what those who are anti-Christian, anti-conservative, and/or anti-Republican are saying. That is why I pay many thousands of dollars each year for home delivery and website access for anti-Christian, anti-conservative, and/or anti- Republican publications. It is called opposition research.) 
https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-oped-subscriptions-20191026-7jbcgvcxcze7bhmrgbsn27rkde-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Trump’s order to all federal agencies to cancel their subscriptions to the Washington Post and New York Times is peevish, wrongheaded, and dangerous. These two papers, as well as numerous others, provide a lifeline to the federal workforce and the American public regarding information and knowledge about our country and the wider world. A civilization without a free and accessible press is not civilized at all. Instead of canceling subscriptions, federal agencies would be better served by holding their Post and Times subscriptions and expanding their subscriptions to other media. Federal employees themselves should subscribe to the Post and Times and the media of their choice to ensure the free flow of information. I subscribe to both publications, and here is why. Many times my day begins with someone asking me “Did you see the story in today’s Washington Post…” or “Did you see the New York Times coverage of …” As a scientist, I rely on news coverage of science, technology, engineering and math in the Post and Times to alert me to new findings and innovations outside my expertise that I can further investigate in detail through the scientific literature. As a public servant, I need the Post and Times to help fill me in on innovations in the federal workforce that come directly from practitioners. As a private citizen, I rely on the Post and Times for differing perspectives on issues affecting my daily life. I need to understand trends in medicine, law, finance, politics and the environment so that I can make informed choices. I want journalists to investigate and ask hard questions, get to the bottom of things, challenge the prevailing wisdom, and help me discover my biases. I depend on them to do their job while I am busy doing mine. Since our country’s founding, politicians have had a love-hate relationship with the press. They love coverage that supports their views and hate coverage that challenges their views, actions or inaction. As a voter, I need coverage from all angles. That approach scares some politicians into seeking to control and muzzle the press. History shows that the American public is best served by a free and open press whose acceptance and credibility by the public is determined by the free market, not political fiat. The press is accountable to its readers because the readers make the final judgment on who or what is believable. The press is not the enemy of the people just because you don’t agree with them. The enemy of the people are demagogues who manipulate the truth for personal gain. Using power granted to you temporarily by the American people, to cancel government-wide subscriptions to publications that do not constantly heap praise on you, is the “perfect” example of demagoguery, Mr. President. We need you to “be best.”)
