'PRESIDENTIAL FAKE NEWS': CNN's Jim Acosta rails against Trump's hostility toward the press
CNNCNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta railed against President Donald Trump and his administration on Wednesday, as several media outlets and the White House engaged in a proverbial war of words earlier this week. "The president of the United States is also a purveyor of fake news," Acosta said on CNN. "He is the founding father of birtherism." Acosta, who is no stranger to heated spats with the Trump White House, argued that Trump had his "own affinity for peddling fake news." As he spoke, a CNN chyron displayed the phrase, "PRESIDENTIAL FAKE NEWS," while Acosta listed a series of debunked news stories he said were spread by Trump and his staff. "[Trump] came out right after his inauguration and said his inauguration crowds were bigger than President Obama's, when they weren’t," said Acosta. "We had photographic evidence from the National Parks Service to prove that point." After several contentious weeks with the press, the White House's recent decision to prohibit video feeds of its briefings was widely torched by the press, including CNN, which responded by sending its own Supreme Court sketch artist to illustrate a briefing. Acosta hypothesized the reason behind Trump and his administration's tendency to avoid the media at large. "This is the reason why the president has only held one news conference — one full news conference — since coming into office, that one in February," Acosta said. "It's because if he holds a news conference, we're going to ask all of these questions. "He just is not going to have answers for any of that and that is why he's been avoiding these types of questions."NOW WATCH: 'What you feel isn't relevant': Sen.

iPhone at 10: how it changed everything
Alex Hern bought the first iPhone a decade ago. As it celebrates its 10th anniversary, he looks back on how it changed the world – and his lifeTen years ago today, the first iPhone hit stores in the US. On paper, the device was nothing special: it lacked the 3G connectivity which was becoming standard across much of the world, its battery struggled to last a day, and its camera resolution was just two megapixels. It also came with an eye-watering price tag of $499, and a mandatory two-year contract with AT&T. That was for the smallest version, with 4GB of storage.But in person, it wasn’t the iPhone that looked behind the times. It was everything else. Looking back now, and the sea change is obvious: the first iPhone, a 10-year-old device, looks like something that could reasonably be found in people’s pockets today, while its competition look like historical curiosities.

Theresa May’s DUP deal could put confidence back into provincial Britain | Simon Jenkins
If the prime minister can borrow for Ulster for two years in government, then she must now extend her largess to the rest of the unionCan anything rescue Theresa May’s reputation from this week’s DUP fiasco? There is not the remotest public interest in political blackmail and bribery, in grinding self-interest, in the dollop of £540 a head to Ulster voters who are already subsidy addicts. It merely tells us what two years in No 10 costs these days: a billion pounds of other people’s money.Of course pork barrel politics is not new, even in Britain. In a similar predicament in 1978-9, Labour’s Jim Callaghan wrestled the same demons in trying (and failing) to buy off the Ulster unionists. This was despite offering them five more seats in parliament. Callaghan still fell. Continue reading...

'The iPhone will fail' and other hot takes on the original iPhone
One of the reasons I hate it when people "call bullshit" on technology that still hasn't played itself out in the market yet (cough, VR, cough), is that it's just too easy.  Most new products fail. So when journalists "boldly" say that something sucks, is stupid, or won't work with consumers (before most have even touched it), it's usually not insightful courage, it's just a simple thing called "playing the odds." Which brings us to the debut of the iPhone in 2007.  SEE ALSO: iOS 11 is about to radically change the iPad for the better Oh, yessss... How sweet it is to look back upon the doubters. No, I didn't write a review at the time, but I was an early iPhone believer. And unlike the four establishment techies who were afforded early access to the device for review, my opinion of the iPhone was primarily informed by Steve Jobs' stagecraft during the initial reveal of the device months before its release.  Read more...More about Apple, Iphone, Steve Jobs, Tech, and Consumer Tech

WWE Tough Enough Winner Matt Cappotelli to Have Emergency Surgery on Brain Tumor
Matt Cappotelli, who won WWE's third Tough Enough competition, is undergoing surgery Thursday to remove a brain tumor.

"Just found out the tumor that I had removed 10 years ago has come back much more aggressively and needs to be dealt with." "It's a very large tumor and there is a portion that is inoperable. The portion that they're hoping to remove will be sent for pathology, which will determine what exactly we are dealing with and provide insight on future treatment plans and the next steps for the inoperable portion in my brain stem #John9:1-3."            This article will be updated to provide more information on this story as it becomes available.

'What the heck is this thing': Sally Yates describes how she found out about Trump's travel ban
Reuters/Kevin LamarqueFormer acting attorney general Sally Yates discussed the "compressed period of time" in which she found out about President Donald Trump's first travel ban, at the 2017 Aspen Ideas Festival on Wednesday. "I was in the car on the way to the airport ... and I had actually just finished a meeting at the White House on what's now known as the Mike Flynn situation," Yates said. "I got a call from my principal deputy ... [who] says, 'You're not going to believe this, but I was just on the New York Times website and it looks like the president has instituted some sort of travel ban.'" "That's how we found out about it at the Department of Justice: read about it on the Internet," Yates said. "I'm on my way to the plane, I've got my iPad, I'm furiously going on there trying to figure out what it is." "I'm literally going online to try to find a copy of the executive order so we could get some sense of what this was," Yates continued. "So over the course of that weekend, it was a whole lot of trying to figure out 'What the heck is this thing, and to whom does it apply?'" Trump's first draft of the travel ban went into effect in January, shortly after he was sworn in. The ban, met with confusion from legal experts and fierce opposition from immigration advocates, was struck down by several federal courts that cited Trump's rhetoric during his presidential campaign and past statements made on Twitter. As a holdover from President Barack Obama's administration, Yates was ultimately dismissed after refusing to enforce Trump's executive order, to which she coined as "not grounded in truth." "We gathered all of the folks who were involved in this at the Justice Department in my conference room, and that included the Trump administration appointees," said Yates. "We went around the table with [me] asking them, 'Tell me why you think this is lawful. How are we going to defend this.'" "At the end of that, I was not comfortable that it was in fact lawful or constitutional," Yates continued. Faced with the choice of either resigning or defending the constitutionality of the travel ban, Yates defended her decision to issue a Justice Department directive not to present arguments in defense of the travel ban "unless until I was convinced it was lawful." "I didn't feel like I would be doing my job if I just essentially said 'I'm out of here. You guys figure this out,'" Yates said. "That would have protected my personal integrity, but I didn't believe that it would have protected the integrity of the Department of Justice. And it wouldn't have been doing my job." "Not surprisingly, I got a letter about 9:00 p.m. that night firing me," Yates said. "So that was that."

Canon’s long awaited 6D Mark II is a huge upgrade, but it’s missing 4K video
Canon is updating two of its camera lineups today with the announcement of the new 6D Mark II and Rebel SL2. Both look like solid new cameras — the 6D especially, since it’s been anticipated for even longer than it’s been rumored. But they’re both still missing one of the most requested features: 4K video. The $1,999 6D Mark II is a follow-up to 2012’s Canon 6D, a slightly cheaper and slightly less capable full-frame sibling to Canon’s popular 5D series. It’s been a long wait, but judging from the specs, that wait might be worth it when the 6D Mark II goes on sale in July.
