If you thought yesterday’s press conference was “ranting and raving”, it appears President Trump just turned the anti-‘Fake news’-media amplifier up to ’11’, declaring CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS , The New York Times (yet not The Washington Post) as “enemies of the American people”.

The problem is global: as we consume the cheap energy, what’s left to extract and refine is more expensive, so energy costs rise. As the population ages, entitlements soar. As the “growth fixes everything” model fails under the burden of skyrocketing debts, the harsh reality becomes unavoidable:
We haven’t “grown” at all. What we’ve done is borrow from future generations to create the illusion of growth.

Margarita Simonyan says that the Wall Street Journal has pressured advertisers who cooperate with RT into pulling their money. Very professional.
The idea of “questioning more” is not particularly welcome among “respected” outlets such as the Wall Street Journal. So it’s not easy being editor-in-chief of a news organization that puts the US media to shame.
Margarita Simonyan knows this all too well.
RT’s chief explained on Russian television how the Wall Street Journal launched a campaign of intimidation to prevent advertisers from working with her organization.
Real classy. And shows a great deal of professional courtesy.
