Virginia News Headlines: Wednesday Morning


Here are a few Virginia and national news headlines, political and otherwise, for Wednesday, March 25.

*How American journalists deal with climate deniers (“The basic mental model that has governed U.S. journalism for decades – two mirror-image sides, each with their moderates and extremists, engaging in normal politics – is crumbling and it’s not clear what journalism will look like when the dust clears.”)

*Oil And Gas Giant BP Cuts Ties With Conservative Group ALEC

*Obama: Remarks dim prospects for Palestinian state (Thanks in large part to the right wing, both in Israel and their misguided supporters here.)

*Black box damaged in German jetliner crash

*Satellite scientist cited by Ted Cruz disagrees with him on climate change (Cruz just lies and lies and lies and lies and…)

*Ted Cruz going on Obamacare (Almost seems like an “Onion” headline for this lying hypocrite and Joe McCarthy-style demagogue.)

*Our view: What police didn’t say in the UVa rape report

*A better way to pick judges in Virginia (“Judgeships shouldn’t be patronage positions, yet that’s what they’ve routinely become; after leaving elected office, state lawmakers themselves frequently end up years – or, in some cases, months – later working full time in the judiciary.”)

*Martese Johnson’s education happened on that sidewalk (“He asked ‘How could this happen?’ as he was violently arrested. But he needed to have known before then.”)

*Fairfax county attorney lays out plans for change after Geer controversy
