CLEVELAND -- When I picked up my newspapers recently – yes, I still read them in print because I love the textured feeling of turning the pages – I came across two stories that stuck with me over the course of the day. The first, in The New York Times, revealed a national irony, perhaps hypocrisy: One of President Donald Trump’s housekeepers at the Trump National Golf Club is an undocumented immigrant, flying in the face of Trump’s widely publicized opposition to illegal immigration, including his boast that only legal immigrants did construction work at his Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. The other story, appearing on the front page of The Plain Dealer and of greater significance, listed in painstaking detail flagrant abuses in the Cuyahoga County Jail, such as prisoner mistreatment and policies imperiling inmate health.That two, albeit very different, revelatory stories appeared on the same day, is a testament to a public resource that is … [Read more...] about In an everything-goes online media world, we need old-fashioned bootstrap journalists more than ever: Richard M.

LONDON -- The cyber divisions of law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and seven other countries launched a massive operation last Thursday to disrupt the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)'s "capability to broadcast terrorist material for an undetermined period of time." A primary target was ISIS' online media portal, Amaq. On Wednesday, CBS News discovered that the "undetermined period of time" may only have been a few days. Amaq did disappear from the internet on Thursday -- the day before the coordinated operation was publicized by pan-European police agency Europol. On Wednesday morning, Amaq was back online, seemingly hosted on a server in Phoenix, Arizona. ISIS used its freshly relaunched propaganda machine to claim a deadly attack Wednesday in the capital of Libya. Its rapid resurrection after the coordinated international "takedown action" clearly demonstrates the challenge facing law enforcement agencies across the globe as they try to derail terror groups' efforts to … [Read more...] about ISIS’ media mouthpiece Amaq was silenced, but not for long
