Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Thursday, June 1.

  • Quizzical

    I’ve heard Hillary say in a televised interview that she absolutely is responsible for mistakes made by her campaign, and that they did indeed make mistakes. It seems like some people in the media have a mental filter that prevents them from really listening to her, or edits that out. Maybe they feel they have an internal truth detector that tells them that although she says it, she really doesn’t mean it. Maybe they just want a click-bait headline and are willing to disregard what she actually says to get to that headline.

    However, I have little faith in the mind-reading abilities of anyone in the media, or in their internal truth-detectors. All I want is for them to listen to what people are saying, ask intelligent questions, and report the facts.

  • True Blue

    Matt Lewis’ article points out the ludicrous praise for and “obsequious rhetoric” about the president. Subtitle: “We believe you should respect your leaders and pray for them—but not to them.” This is about a guy, not a god. When will Republicans stand up for America and against autocracy?
