@saila DefinitelyAlas, I am unable to attend unfortunately. I have the flu and am unable to make any sound other than a croak It's not that funny either., remember that alternate time-line where Donald Trump became president? Ha. That was hilarious. As if that would ever happen!.@jayrosen_nyu thinks journalists should stop interviewing Kellyanne Conway.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThis Trump concert finally answers the question: "What would the opening ceremony be like if we gave the Olympics to Estonia?"
Retweeted by Mathew IngramGlad we got that cleared up point here is that Mark Zuckerberg is much too smart to actually spend time on Facebook
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @xpangler yesAdam is correct, in this case the term "privatize" means "remove all funding" @aragusea Sorry about that. Fair point @jbenton Wow. That feels like a hundred years ago now :-) Good times!Because it seems relevant, the CPB accounts for about 0.01% of the federal budget is for WUT and WOW. #journalism
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @jbenton @pilhofer That was the whole reason I started a blog -- I was going to just host clips. But I started blogging and got carried awayTomorrow this nation will install a corrupt racist sexual predator who was elected President with the covert help of a foreign government.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @wfederman @jason_pontin My larger point is that if places like the NYT are going to regain trust, they need to do better than thatGood to know @wfederman @jason_pontin Also doesn't explain why his statement specifically says nuclear, and the main quoted source says he was misquoted @wfederman @jason_pontin My point is not that it *is* weak but that it *appears* weak. It doesn't say multiple high-level sourcesThe New York Times stands by Rick Perry story despite controversy
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @wfederman @jason_pontin I'm not saying they were reckless, I'm saying the story appears to be weakly sourcedIf you'd ever been to the Midwest, you'd know that's not really that weird @wfederman @sonyaellenmann @jason_pontin I agree with Sonya, it looks bad regardless. If you had multiple senior level sources then say so @wfederman @jason_pontin -- but I still think the story is overplayedFree news! @PranavDixit Well, I don't know -- gossip metastasizes sometimes, like in Rwanda or during the Salem witch trialsIn the old days, this kind of viral "fake news" was just called gossip via @PranavDixitMoon landing @jgrovum it's possibleNYT spokesperson says the paper stands behind its Perry story, which "accurately reflected what multiple, high-level sources told reporters"At its peak, Nortel was a staggering 35% of the TSE 300 in Toronto.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramIt will certainly be tempting.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramYes. by @RossBarkan
Retweeted by Mathew IngramGoing hard at Trump and his dumb appointments is fine -- but overplaying a story like that doesn't help. It does the oppositeMaybe Rick Perry is a moron. But the headline and lede of this piece overstate the argument in the extreme @palafo @mkhammer if there's more basis, the work must be shown. Full stop. Plenty of contrary info not included doesn't help case.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramAlso, only named source for the story says his quote was misinterpreted and/or taken out of context… debunking here that seems credible starters *entire* basis of NYT's Perry hit is a fake quote to a fake question hypothesized by a guy who was canned before Perry was selected.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramOh, and the NYT's authority on Perry's inner thoughts? He was canned 3 weeks *before* Perry was tapped.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramIf you were dumb enough to fall for the NYT's fake Rick Perry story then you're the reason fake news is successful. You're the perfect mark.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramI don't think you have to be a right-wing stooge to admit the thrust of this story is weak and also likely wrong, I’ll leave you this morning with this Dec. 14, 2016, quote from Perry. Issued the day he was asked to head…

Retweeted by Mathew IngramFunniest thing about Pizzagate people in my mentions is they think a worldwide child sex ring decided to allude to it in a pizza shop logo.
