DID CNN JUST REVEAL ITS BIAS? station says network dropped positive coverage of border wall

A Humpty Trumpty sat on his wall, All dem dems wanted him to fall, All the left wingers and all the dems’ men Was told by Trump, I’ll never give in

By Kristine Phillips

San Diego television station accused CNN of dropping an appearance by one of its reporters after learning that person’s reporting does not fit an anti-border-wall narrative — an allegation the cable news network denies. KUSI said that CNN had asked whether one of its reporters could appear on the network and talk about the local debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown. The partial shutdown has become the longest in U.S. history as President Trump refuses to budge on his demand for $5.7 billion for a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border and as congressional Democrats resist that demand. The president also hinted he might declare a national emergency to build his signature campaign promise, only to later back down as the shutdown enters its fourth week. After receiving the interview request from CNN, KUSI offered Dan Plante, who reports on border issues, said Steve Cohen, KUSI’s news director. Cohen said the station informed CNN that Plante’s reporting showed barriers have been effective in preventing illegal crossings into the United States. Later that day, Cohen said one of his producers told him that CNN had decided to pass. Cohen and KUSI claim CNN dropped the request because the cable news network preferred to air only negative reporting about the border wall. CNN denied that it played politics in deciding whether to book journalists on its shows and called the allegations a “non story.” CNN’s public relations

department wrote on Twitter that it called several local stations, including KUSI, but did not end up booking any of them for a show. “That happens every single day,” CNN said, adding that it booked a KUSI reporter in November for a story on immigration and the border wall. KUSI is owned by McKinnon Broadcasting Company and is not affiliated with any major cable news network. The San Diego Business Journal described its general manager, Michael McKinnon, as a “longtime supporter of conservative causes and candidates in the San Diego area.” KUSI also blasted the Associated Press for reporting that it is backing off from its accusation against CNN. Cohen, whom the AP also interviewed, took issue with how the story’s headline — “TV station backs off accusation that CNN played politics” — characterized his comments. “We’re not pulling back on our thoughts on this. We really do think that CNN has not been as transparent as they might be,” Cohen said. He acknowledged that he had not spoken directly with anyone at CNN about why Plante was not booked. He also said he had not expected the allegation to snowball into a controversy. “I wasn’t that interested in getting us into anybody’s narrative. ... All we know is [CNN] asked, we answered, it didn’t happen,” Cohen said. The president seized on KUSI’s allegation, tweeting: “@CNN called a San Diego news station (@ KUSINews) for negative reports on the Wall. When the station said that Walls work, CNN no longer had interest. #FakeNews”

Mahomes best thing to happen to the chiefs By Nancy Armour


ANSAS CITY, Mo. — It wasn’t that long ago the Kansas City Chiefs wondered if Patrick Mahomes were too good to be true. Four touchdowns in the season opener, followed by six the next week and three more the week after that. The physics-warping arm angles and the no-look lasers into impossibly tight spaces. The unbridled joy and complete unaffectedness. No way Mahomes could keep it up, right? “That first couple of games, we thought, ‘Is this an outlier? Is this something that’s going to last?’” Chiefs CEO and chairman Clark Hunt acknowledged Saturday. “He literally has done it every week.” Just 23, Mahomes has proved to be more than a franchise quarterback in this, his first full season as a starter. He’s been transformational for a team whose postseason miseries are as lengthy as they are well-documented. The 31-13 victory over Indianapolis in the divisional round Saturday was only Kansas City’s second playoff win in the last 12 tries. It also was the first playoff win at Arrowhead Stadium since the 1993 sea-

son, which, coincidentally, is the last time the Chiefs reached the AFC title game. And when Kansas City hosts New England next weekend, bringing the man who has carried the NFL the last 15 years face to face with the man who will carry it the next 15, it will be the first time the AFC Championship has been played at Arrowhead. Mind-boggling, considering the winner of the game is awarded the Lamar Hunt Trophy, named for the Chiefs’ founder and Clark Hunt’s father. “We’re excited we get to play here and have a chance to go to the Super Bowl here,” Mahomes said. A powerhouse in the old AFL, the Chiefs have had their moments since the merger. There was the Joe Montana and Marcus Allen Era, of course. Tony Gonzalez got them to the playoffs a few times. So did Jamaal Charles. Under coach Andy Reid, Kansas City has been a regular in the playoffs. But it was never quite good enough. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs in a 31-13 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Punter Dustin Colquitt, who has been in Kansas City for his entire 14-year calast offseason, as had been expected, reer, remembers watching the Chiefs’ few more players. Asked Saturday night if they have and gave the keys to the franchise to next-door neighbors win the World SeMahomes. He has yet to disappoint. ries in 2015 and thinking there was no those players, Colquitt smiled. He became only the third player with “I think it’s tough to argue not,” he reason his team couldn’t do what the Royals were doing. They just needed a said, his eyes automatically glancing at 50 touchdowns in a season, joining Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, while Mahomes’ locker.

An egg is now Instagram’s most-liked post of all time Just in case you needed further proof that likes, favs, and social media impressions are completely meaningless, a picture of an egg recently usurped the title of most-liked photo on Instagram from professional famous person Kylie Jenner. Modern miracles like this don’t happen on accident, though. According to Taylor Lorenz of The Atlantic, the egg account was launched earlier this month by a kid from London with the express purpose of breaking the world record. Yesterday, the egg reached its goal. The record for most likes was previously held by the first photo Jenner shared of her daughter, Stormi, which racked up 18.2 million likes. In just ten days, a generic picture of an egg obliterated that record and, as of this publishing, has just over 30 million likes. Following the definitive victory, the admin for the egg account shared a message to his followers, a.k.a. the #EggGang, saying, “It doesn’t end here though, we’re only just getting started.” “Why?” you may ask. “Why did people do this?” Because nothing means anything anymore. Jenner and the “influencer” culture she helped spawn gauge success by social media buzz, inspiring an entire gen-

eration to do the same. Now, a stock photo of an egg has been deemed more culturally valuable by these metrics than anything they’ve ever previously posted. Postmodern media studies would be written about this moment if not for the fact that, in a week, no one will remember or care that it happened. For now, though, please look at the egg. Robert Allam, the man who rose to internet fame as Reddit’s top user, put it thusly to Forbes: “It’s been fascinating watching one of the biggest, ‘famous,’ media influencers today be overtaken by the shitposting meme masses. This is what the internet is all about. When and if the day comes where a random comedic meme cannot overtake one of the biggest social media sponsor money-pump in existence, we’ll be able to say that the internet as we knew it is dead. Until that day comes we can rejoice in watching the organic noise echo louder than the money machines of our internet today.” Jenner, her throne stolen from under her, is reacting accordingly. Based on her recent post on Instagram, she’s got revenge on her mind. Watch yourself, egg.

Pendleton names 2018 athletes of the year By Cpl. Emmanuel Necoechea


AMP PENDLETON — “You aren’t just playing these sports… there is an outcome to it,” said Staff Sgt. Destini Brown, transmissions chief, Combat Logistics Regiment 1, 1st Marine Logistics Group. “The high level competition. Getting to play oversees. The team building skills.” “My mind set is to compete at the best possible level I can, but also to have fun,” said Staff Sgt. Jason T. Pacheco, infantry platoon sergeant, Wounded Warrior Battalion - West. “Winning is just the icing on the cake.” The Camp Pendleton Male and Female Athlete of the Year is awarded annually to Marines that demonstrate excellence and dedication in All-Marine, national and/or international sports competitions. This year, Marines like Pacheco who competed in four sports and participated in 10 events at the Invictus Games in Sydney, Australia, or Brown, who in her time with the AllMarine Softball Team, was selected to play with the All-Armed Forces Wom-

en’s Team have been selected as the winners for 2018. Sports to each of these Marines is about the culmination of all the rigorous training to hone their bodies and movements to compete against others that have trained just as hard or even harder. To these two individuals, it is about the competition and displaying their capabilities under the banner of the Marine Corps. “I found that competitive sports is something that made me adapt to a new situation with my specific injury,” said Pacheco. “I was able to keep staying active and do the things I love to do with like-minded people and people with similar injuries. Along the way, I even noticed that I wasn’t just helping myself to get better both physically and mentally, but I was also helping out the Marine to the left and to the right… which was pretty awesome.” The Camp Pendleton Male and Female Athlete of the Year award was presented to Pacheco and Brown by U.S. Marine Brig. Gen. Kevin Killea, commanding general, Marine Corps Installations – West, Marine Corps Base

Juan Bustos

Camp Pendleton, Dec. 11, 2018. “If I had one solid reason as to why I won the 2018 Female Marine Corps Athlete of the Year Award, it would have to be because everyone can just see how much love and passion I put into the game when I play,” said Brown. “It’s still a little shocking to me though that I’m

looked at as a high caliber player, but I try to keep myself extremely humble. To me, it is the best approach to take. If you are too cocky, or over confident, sometimes your abilities don’t shine through, but I’m definitely extremely honored to be recognized and awarded for my work.”

Not bad for government work

There were two guys working for the city. One would dig a hole — he would dig, dig, dig. The other would come behind him and fill the hole — fill, fill, fill. These two men worked furiously; one digging a hole, the other filling it up again. A man was watching from the sidewalk and couldn’t believe how hard these men were working, but couldn’t understand what they were doing. Finally he had to ask them. He said to the hole digger, “I appreciHearing aid John: I got this great new hearing aid ate how hard you work, but what are you doing?

Beware of dog

Upon entering the little country store, the stranger noticed a sign saying “DANGER! BEWARE OF DOG!” posted on the glass door. Inside he noticed a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor besides the cash register. He asked the store manager, “Is THAT the dog folks are supposed to beware of?” “Yep, that’s him,” he replied. The stranger couldn’t help but be amused. “That certainly doesn’t look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world


What are you drawing?

A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s artwork. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.” The teacher paused and said, “But no one knows what God looks like.” Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing the girl replied, “They will in a minute.”

Blonde deputy

The local sheriff was looking for a new deputy. When a blonde walks in to try for the job, he asks her “Okay, what is 1 and 1?” “Eleven”, she replies. The sheriff thinks to himself, “That’s not what I wanted, but I guess she’s right!” “What two days of the week begin with the letter T?” he asks. “Today and Tomorrow,” the blonde answers. The sheriff is again surprised that the blonde has supplied a correct answer that had not even occurred to him.
