Splinter’s Parent Company Tells Staffers Not To Write About Site’s Demise

Some big news hit the media world Thursday when G/O Media, the new owner of the former Gizmodo Media Group, announced that it would be shutting down 2-year-old news and opinion site Splinter. But at least one large news organization didn’t find the shutdown all that newsworthy: G/O Media itself. In an email to staffers obtained by HuffPost, Paul Maidment, the media group’s editorial director, instructed editors not to publish posts about Splinter’s demise.  “I see no compelling reason for any of our sites to be writing about the decision to cease publishing Splinter,” Maidment wrote. “There is already external coverage, LeadPR will handle our external communications, and this is a time to be respectful of colleagues who have just …

Japan Has Imported Ebola And Other Deadly Viruses In Preparation For The 2020 Olympics

Just in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, a Japanese lab has imported the Ebola virus, along with four other nasty hemorrhage-inducing viruses. The fiendishly contagious pathogens were imported late last month from an unknown foreign country by the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIID), part of Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare, at their high-security laboratory in Musashimuraya, western Tokyo. Inviting highly contagious germs onto an island might not sound like the smartest idea, but the import is all part of their masterplan to deal with a potential outbreak. With cases of Ebola being recently reported in the Congo, Japan is rightly wary of the risks involved in welcoming over 600,000 international tourists to their country next year for the Tokyo …

I Loved The Office But Please Kill The Reboot

Alyssa Lynn Malmquist Updated March 7, 2019 By The Office You’re not alone if you’re wondering if there are more reboots and sequels today when compared to the original content. During a time of astronomical advance, we crave the memories of our favorite characters that brought onscreen magic to our lives. We miss shows like The Office, Friends, Full House, Sister, Sister, or Boy Meets World because these shows changed us. The characters and their stories stayed with us.

Legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker dies at 80

Impeachment Is Actually More Rare Than You Think

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images Which Presidents Have Been Impeached? Not As Many As You’d Think By Madhuri Sathish Oct 12, 2019 Now that Democrats have launched an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, you may be wondering what kind of precedent there is for this. Well, if the House votes to impeach Trump, he won’t be alone, because other presidents have been impeached in the past. Which ones? It may come as a surprise that Richard Nixon was not one of them. Only two presidents in American history have been successfully impeached by the House of Representatives. First, the House impeached Andrew Johnson in 1868. Then, more than a century later, the House impeached Bill Clinton in 1998. Neither …

Book: Trump raged against refugees from Somalia in private meeting

Washington (CNN)In the first few months of his administration, President Donald Trump asked then-acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke why he could not ban refugees from “f*****g Somalia” in a bout of rage at his Bedminster golf club. In October 2017, weeks after Trump complained to Elaine Duke, the then-acting Homeland Security secretary received a call from White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller who insisted that Duke “shut off refugee flows from 11 countries the administration had identified as high-risk,” particularly Somalia, according to the book. Duke refused. The White House did not immediately return a request for comment. Over the course of Trump’s presidency, the administration has chipped away at the refugee ceiling — the number of refugees …
