metmike: The story speaks for itself.
It looks as if President Trump is having some fun playing the MSM, with Newsweek getting especially bent out of shape and frustrated that their attacks are backfiring this holiday.
Hi MM. Saw that report yesterday. Yes, just another embarrassing example on just how far the left will go to try to make our President and country look bad. And will they apologize and endeavor to print facts from now on? No, Trump bad, there is no story bad enough on Trump to print and then they make up worse.
Trump is obviously playing the MSM with more than a little success... But then, they make it so easy..
The part that gets me is they apologized for getting "caught"
As if they print some thing and don't get "caught", then that is okay
Some print obvious fake news and don't care if they do get caught
Say it often enough and it must be true
Journalist morality in reporting, has sunk to such a low bar it is impossible to go lower
On the other hand I can sort of understand it
24/7 news channels is impossible to report news that has ratings suffient to pay the bills
So they have to report what ever it takes to get enough ratings to pay the bills
But when ownership dictates what is reported, as in Bloomberg, that is not a 24/7 news channel
I don't really know what to call that
However, recent commentary seems to indicate big time blow back on Bloomberg. His chances of being a top tier candidate, are zip to zero
Bloomberg is the only person that doesn't know his campaign is doomed
Trump will only get stronger the longer the Dems and the MSM play these games. The polls show Trumps strength getting stronger
You want to peak as the 2020 comes closer and Trump seems to be on the correct path way to victory

metmike: Weird? This is the new normal!
"This speech by far-left activist Greta Thunberg is absolute madness"
Greta: "You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I'm one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying.
Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money, and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!"
metmike: This is a manufactured crisis/emergency using scary words to get people to react out of fear. Here are the actual facts from the real world:
"From a quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25.
An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States."

We are having another climate Optimum!
