(5341) Michael Wolff - The Man Who Owns the News - YouTube
See his wikipedia // the least self-aware, not interested in the past, old-fashioned city editor, what counts is today. // @MichaelWolffNYC defends not quoting people in his work bc its lazy and apparently does not get you & reader to the "larger more significant truth." (22:15) //&! See critizism about his writings on his wikipedia. Underlined again in this fire and fury review: "One suspects, though, that many readers will forgive any such errors. The book confirms their worst fears about the Trump presidency: it feels truthful, if not always factual." [... er gibt her was man lesen will ueber trump administration. schreibt trumpian buch ubers erste jahre trump.] Does that not sound very similar to “truth from the gut”?

“Do not be distracted,” writes Matthew D’Ancona, “by those who are scouring the book for minor errors. The big story is what matters, and Wolff has nailed it.”

Theresa May: Ihre Brexit-Strategie beruht auf zehn Fehlkalkulationen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Ihr mangelndes Verständnis und ihre Geringschätzung für die innereuropäischen Mechanismen rächt sich nun.

Wer an Europa im Wesentlichen nur feine französische Weine (und diese schon üppig zum Mittagessen) schätzt, dem fehlt in Sachen Brexit-Verhandlungen die Bodenhaftung.

Brexit: UK will be ‘screwed into the floor’ in EU withdrawal talks, warns Ryanair boss | The Independent
Michael O’Leary, chief executive of Europe’s biggest budget airline, campaigned strenuously for a Remain vote in the EU Referendum. He told the Airport Operators Association annual conference: “Britain has no negotiation position whatsoever. You file the Article 50 in March, you walk off a cliff in two years’ time.

"We’re already working on the summer '19 schedule. I need to know what’s going to be happening in March 2019. We can’t plan with that kind of uncertainty.”

[Merkel] and others will agree there will be no sectoral deals in either the single market or the customs union”. [...] The truth is that a Brexit deal on a sector-by-sector basis is a fantasy. So how is it possible that Theresa May thinks this fantasy is in the land of the living? The answer, I think, lies in her time as Home Secretary, and in particular the lessons she learnt from the one key EU negotiation she undertook in her time there. [...] Of all the strands of wishful thinking this government is bringing to the Brexit process, this is perhaps the most damaging.

Mercedes, BMW and Hyundai dump O'Reilly Factor amid lawsuits - BBC News
[systemic in FoxNews building, under Rupert Murdoch] Fox News' most popular show is facing an exodus of advertisers because of sexual harassment claims against its host, Bill O'Reilly.
Mercedes-Benz, BMW North America and several others have pulled adverts following the "disturbing" allegations.

The network said on Tuesday it was working to "address concerns".

Tony Blair calls on remainers to 'rise up in defence of our beliefs' | Politics | The Guardian
[ lost is the moderation, on both sides of the Atlantic ] “This is a government for Brexit, of Brexit and dominated by Brexit. It is a mono-purpose political entity,” he will say. “Those driving this always wanted a hard Brexit. Indeed even the term ‘hard Brexit’ requires amendment. The policy is now Brexit at any cost.”

Vince Cable: assurances to Nissan means UK will stay in customs union | Business | The Guardian
Theresa May’s assurances to Nissan that the car industry will remain competitive after Brexit point to a promise that the UK will be staying in the EU customs union, according to Sir Vince Cable.

Cable, who was business secretary throughout the coalition government, said this was the most probable rationale as the industry would need assurances there would be no tariff regime and that its supply chain would not be subject to rules of origin checks.

Brexit - Schäuble weist britischen Außenminister Johnson in die Schranken
Der Binnenmarkt habe sehr wohl etwas mit den Grundfreiheiten und damit der Freizügigkeit in Europa zu tun, sagte Schäuble nach dem deutsch-französischen Wirtschafts- und Finanzrat in Berlin. Dies könne er Johnson notfalls auch auf englisch verständlich machen. Auch Frankreichs Finanzminister Sapin betonte, die europäischen Grundfreiheiten seien unteilbar.
Johnson hatte zuvor erklärt, es sei völliger Unsinn, dass es einen Automatismus zwischen dem Zugang zum EU-Binnenmarkt und der Freizügigkeit der Menschen gebe. Beides habe nichts miteinander zu tun.

Andrea Leadsom’s pitch for the Tory leadership: our writers’ verdict | The panel | Opinion | The Guardian
But Leadsom staked out more terrain on the left. Workers’ rights previously guaranteed by the EU would be safe and even “enhanced”. Top boardroom pay was often undeserved and needed to be reined in. If there was money to give away, it would go on tax cuts for the lowest paid: “The richest people in Britain will not be my priority.” //&! &! //&! I will do everything in my power to keep the United Kingdom United. [ may replace/upgrade the block grant to make up for lost EU funding and extra. to avoid indyref 2 ] [...] But my real passion in politics is my desire for social justice – for a transformation of our society. [...] and my absolute commitments it to the emotional health of our nation. [ she really takes centre ground! ] //&! Liam Fox - &!

Will Deadpool lead to a deluge of hard-R comic book movies? | Film | The Guardian
Despite its adults-only rating, the film has been a smash – a sure sign that we can expect more sex, violence and swearing in the next crop of superhero movies [...] Trends all begin with one huge success, and today that success is Deadpool. You can almost hear the Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad cutting room floors being minutely swept for an excised F-bomb, stray nipple or non-PG-13-friendly punch in the neck that can be reinserted now that R-ratings are all the rage. “Giving the fans what they want,” is what they’ll say. [...] But, as with previous trends like 3D, the immediate followers are likely to, as Gunn noted, miss the point entirely, not realising people have taken so keenly to Deadpool because it’s different, smart and self-aware, not because of the staccato deployment of dick jokes and exploding heads.

Russell Brand: Bill O’Reilly represents the values of the Devil -
Bill O'Reilly always used inflamed language & communication to bring his points across as valid arguments and facts. And lets not forget about the shouting and screaming and then the body language and gestures ... like he is the center of reason and managing the debate. The emperor has actually no clothes.
