I asked the question nearly a year ago (as you can see from the image at the top).
Have YOU noticed it. I no longer (SMILE) watch as many White House Press Briefings as I used to. They are not as entertaining as they used to be — BUT that is a good thing.
Though I cannot read sign language I am GLAD that it is available. Yes, I do like watching them. Some, as you know, are very expressive.
CNN, Covering The British COVID Vaccinations, Claims That The People of Cardiff, Wales, Are ‘English’!
Well if the U.S. President, Trump, cannot distinguish between England, Wales, Scotland, N. Ireland & the U.K., I guess we shouldn’t expect CNN to get it right either. This was CNN’s ‘Brooke Baldwin’ doing today’s 1pm news.
Yes, she was very excited to get a live report from Cardiff — which happens to be the capital of Wales.
She was gushing …
She then says something along the lines of: “… the English people of Cardiff, Wales … among the first to get the vaccine …“.
English = England
Welsh = Wales
Scottish = Scotland
Irish = Boston (Smile).
This afternoon I heard John King, on CNN, prattling on about election polling. For a second I thought they were doing a clip from 2016. It was exactly the same. How Trump’s path to victory was torturous etc. etc.
They all got it wrong, entirely, in 2016. Don’t they have any shame?
I am so fed up of this charade. Aren’t YOU?
It is as if we learnt nothing from 2016.

I followed the CNN recommendation:
I have NO problem or concerns being a guinea pig for the COVID-19 vaccine. Does not scare I. I don’t think it will kill me & I am sure I can deal with any other symptoms. These could be famous last words.
I have previously taken part in a polio vaccine trial (unbeknownst) & in the 1970s I did volunteer & v. successfully take part in an asthma prevention drug trial (i.e. Intal). So, I am not new to this.
Search on ‘COVID’.
What interests I the MOST (SMILE).
So lots of nostalgia when it comes to deal ol’ ‘British Pathe‘.
PLUS, they are plugging the railroad documentaries they have. Have to watch this.
Right now, with LIVE cricket back, I do NOT have the the time. But, the 1st lull in the cricket … Here I come. SMILE.
Enjoy. This should be good.
Yes, I will get it on my Roku. That is what makes sense for I.
Search ‘British Pathe‘.
This was disappointing and SAD. A grown man, who I used to think was pretty damn clever, just sacrificing his credibility and coming across like a total jackass — and I am NOT sure for why or for what?
I used to enjoy watching him on TV. He was good. But, today. It was like he had been drugged.
Shame. I felt real bad for him. Poor guy. Must be desperate — very desperate.
Sri Lanka, Alas, Got Its 15-Minutes Of Media Fame In The U.S. Today — 1st Time Many Would Have Heard The Name.
Not so with the Easter 2019 atrocity. Sri Lanka on its own. TV news started with the Sri Lanka story. This was BIG.
I can assure you that this would have been the first time millions of Americans ever heard of ‘Sri Lanka’. I know that they don’t know.. I live with it every day.
As of now some will remember — alas with the ‘terrorist’ connotation.
Well, I guess we can’t have it all.
All Of The TV ‘Government Shutdown’ Clocks Are ONE DAY OFF — i.e., Day Short; ’12’ When It Should Be ’13’.
Because they are counting the DIFFERENCE.
It needs to be INCLUSIVE.
People do it all the time when they are doing dates.
They take the DIFFERENCE between the two days. For some applications that is ‘OK’, BUT not when you are counting something like a SHUTDOWN.
You have to INCLUDE Day 1, in this case, Saturday, December 22, 2018.
My calendar above shows it clearly.
But, try a simple example. Shutdown started Dec. 22. So, how many days shutdown at the end of Dec. 24. It is 3-days, NOT 2.
I actually saw Anderson Cooper talking about the shutdown being in its 13th day, above the CNN clock that said ’12’!
I actually saw the whole incident LIVE last Wednesday. I kind of knew that Jim was pushing his luck BUT did NOT think he did anything untoward or illegal.
He is doing his job.
This was a GREAT victory for Democracy. For that we should be happy and proud.
Thank you Judge Timothy Kelly. Good to see that we have decent judges — even if they were appointed by Trump.
