One year later, the Kavanaugh controversy still rages. Photo: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images On Sunday, the New York Times updated its story reporting a new assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh, which had drawn widespread attention, to clarify that the woman at the center of the incident does not recall it. A newly attached editor’s note at the bottom of the story reads: “An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.” That clarification put already substantial right-wing backlash to the story into overdrive, with many conservative defenders of Kavanaugh … [Read more...] about Makes Major Correction That Undermines Its Big Brett Kavanaugh Story

MOSCOW — Reporters covering the conflict in Ukraine are in constant danger. At least six journalists have lost their lives in the two and a half years since the “hybrid” war there began. Dozens have been abducted, dragged away by masked men, and threatened with executions. On one of the early days of the war, on May 24, 2014, three journalists—Italian photographer Andy Rocchelli, his co-author, a human rights defender and journalist Andrei Mironov, and French reporter William Roguelon drove up the road outside of Andreyevka village, known for almost daily firefights between Ukrainian and pro-Russian rebel forces. They were seasoned correspondents. Mironov, 60, was a veteran of Afghan and Chechen wars. A few minutes after they stopped their car to interview civilians living on the front line, there were bursts of gunfire followed by the blast of a grenade launcher and a mortar barrage that left Roguelon wounded and Rocchelli and Mironov dead. The mortar had torn … [Read more...] about Malicious Leaks Make Journalists Targets in Ukraine

President Donald Trump is currently facing the prospect of becoming the third U.S. president to be impeached after a whistleblower sounded the alarm about his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The whistleblower raised concerns about Trump’s focus on current Democratic presidential front-runner and Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s business relationship with Burisma Holdings, a company that was being investigated by a Ukrainian prosecutor who was ultimately fired at the former vice president’s behest.
