A lawyer and spokesman for current Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump issued a series of vulgar threats to a reporter on Monday, while falsely claiming that it was legal for a husband to rape his wife in New York.

Recently, Politico, MediaITE, and other sources made it public that MSNBC’s The Ed Show would be canceled and the Ed Schultz time slot would be filled by “moderate” Chuck Todd.
In February, mediamatters.org conducted an interesting study on what news shows cover the TPP trade agreement, and what shows don’t.
Mediamatters.org had done a transcript search of the major news networks (CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC) as well as for the nightly news shows on the three major broadcast networks (CBS Evening News, ABC’s World NewsTonight, NBC’s Nightly News) as well as PBS NewsHour.
The search involved shows from August 1, 2013, through January 31, 2015.
Mediamatters.org wrote that of the three news networks, “only The Ed Show Devoted Significant Coverage To The TPP. During the same 18-month period, CNN and Fox News each mentioned the TPP during two broadcasts. MSNBC’s The Ed Show discussed the trade agreement on 71 broadcasts…”
Also, PBS mentioned the TPP eight times, and the three major nightly news shows (on CBS, ABC, and NBC) made no mention of the TPP whatsoever on their nightly news broadcasts during that time period.
Officers were called to a terrible scene in Central Phoenix recently, writes Fox10 Phoenix. Investigators said they found a woman’s body decapitated and two dogs killed inside an apartment. On Sunday, police identified the victim as 49-year-old Trina Heisch.
According to Reuters, the scene was discovered Saturday morning after a neighbor decided to check on the welfare of a married couple he knew had mental health issues.
When the husband opened the door to the couple’s home he was naked, a portion of his left forearm was cut off, and his right eye was missing.
The neighbor called police who entered the home and found the headless body of Trina Heisch, 49, in a bedroom closet along with two dogs. The animals had also been decapitated. Large amounts of blood was spread across floors, cabinets and walls of the apartment, police said.
The suspect has not been named, but police said he was believed to be Heisch’s husband. He was taken to an area hospital where he underwent surgery. Police said he admitted to killing “three of his family members” and will be charged in Heisch’s murder when released from the hospital.
Recently, MSNBC decided to cancel Ed Schultz’s “The Ed Show.” He will reportedly be replaced with a more “moderate” anchor – Meet The Press’ Chuck Todd. Schultz is known for giving more liberal politicians a platform to speak.
Schultz has talked with left-wing Senator Bernie Sanders “many times” on his show, writes MediaITE.
How does Sanders feel about MSNBC getting rid of The Ed Show?
Politico reports that Senator Sanders said Thursday that he is “disappointed” in Comcast’s decision to remove Ed Schultz from its lineup.
This seemed to confirm earlier reports that Schultz’s “Ed Show” was one of several MSNBC programs to be canceled.
“We live in a time when much of the corporate media regards politics as a baseball game or a soap opera,” the Democratic presidential hopeful said in a statement. “Ed Schultz has treated the American people with respect by focusing on the most important issues impacting their lives,” Sanders said, according to Politico.
Sanders continued: “He has talked about income and wealth inequality, high unemployment, low wages, our disastrous trade policies and racism in America.
“I am very disappointed that Comcast chose to remove Ed Schultz from its lineup. We need more people who talk about the real issues facing our country, not fewer,” Sanders continued. “At a time when a handful of large, multinational corporations own our major media outlets, I hope they will allow voices to be heard from those who dissent from the corporate agenda.”
Above, Schultz speaks with Sanders soon after he declared he would be running for President.
When I return to writing about politics and such I found MSNBC…..and I liked the network because it was not all conserv regurgitation…….at least there was a hint of a liberal point of view…..
MSNBC has shown that it is nothing more than a mouthpiece of the conserv point of view….the only ‘safe’ programs are those that cater to the mindless crap that the Right deems acceptable.
Then there is Chuck Todd……he is a tool! He is about as interesting as watching flies mate…..he must be in bed with someone in the ivory tower……we liberals are of NO concern because we are not part of the greed and feed set……our points of view are unacceptable to the MSM……especially MSNBC.
MSNBC has lost yet another viewer……..ME! And I suggest to all those that care about getting the truth to do the same……

Who knew? Giant salamanders exist in the wild in Japan and China.
The Japanese giant salamander (Andrias japonicus) is endemic to Japan, where it is known as Ōsanshōuo (オオサンショウウオ/大山椒魚?), literally meaning “giant pepper fish”. With a length of up to almost 1.5 m (5 ft), it is the second-largest salamander in the world, only being surpassed by the very similar and closely related Chinese giant salamander (A. davidianus).
A student in Kyoto, Japan saw a Giant Salamander near a river while walking to school last year. The Japanese Giant Salamader is on the IUCN’s “red list” as a “near-threatened species,” according to the video.
