JEFF SESSIONS SEEMS TOO CONCERNED ABOUT "THE CULTURE OF LEAKS." IF THE "SINK" IS FILTHY AND GRIMY IT IS GOING TO LEAK. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHO'S REPORTING IT.
AS THE FORMER PRESS SECRETARY FOR TEN DAYS PUT IT: "A FISH STINKS FROM THE HEAD DOWN." WHY DON'T YOU TRADE TRUMP'S GOLF CLUBS FOR FISHING RODS BECAUSE ALL OF HIS FISH "STINK FROM HIS OWN BAIT AND TACKLE." UNTIL THEN MR SESSIONS, YOU'RE FIGHTING THE 1ST AMENDMENT. SORRY.

Thanks to Jeffrey Lord's presence on Friday's 360, I watched a lot of Hayes.

I missed the first minute. Anderson was already talking to Pamela Brown and another reporter about the FBI tracking Russian disinformation and false stories on Hillary Clinton. Then Anderson talked to Philip Mudd and Daniel Hoffman about the same story for analysis and discussion on whether the Russians had any influence and how to fix this before the 2018 midterm elections. Although the panel that came next was only three people, one of them was Jeffrey Lord. I switched to Hayes.

The second segment had more of that panel and I watched more Hayes.

"Vacation Critic Takes Time Off" was the chyron and the "Vacation Critic" is Trump. He just started a 17-day vacation at his golf club in New Jersey. Anderson stated how Trump criticized Obama for taking time off and proved it with a good deal of clips of campaigner Trump dissing Obama for playing so much golf and promising as President he would never do that. Anderson had a Q&A with Jim Acosta about the White House claim that it's a "working vacation", if new Chief of Staff Kelly can keep Trump disciplined, developments in the Russia investigation and how Trump's failure to hold a press conference before starting his vacation breaks with Presidential tradition. The panel convened again with the addition of a new guy but Lord was still on board so I had to leave.

The Russia investigators have been studying Facebook to study how Russia spread fake news and disinformation. Drew Griffin had a pretty good report looking into all of this. One false story that was pinpointed was a "news report" about a guy confessing to be a paid protester.

The last segment in the first hour dealt with "Two Terror Plots Foiled In Australia" with a discussion with Rene Marsh and Paul Cruickshank on ISIS, their plans, bombs and poison gas.
Anderson's preview of the second hour start revealed it would be exactly like the first hour start.

No apologies for not watching the panels with Lord especially when It doesn't look like anyone else on the panel will competently counter him, especially when Hayes is doing a good job and especially when I have the remote control right next to me.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT PAMELA BROWN THAT I DISLIKE. SHE DOES NOT SEEM CREDIBLE. I AM AWARE SHE REPORTS ON FINDINGS AT THE "JUSTICE DEPARTMENT" SO WE WILL BE SEEING A LOT OF HER. BUT I ALWAYS GET THE FEELING SHE WAS HIRED FOR HER LOOKS AND NOT BECAUSE SHE IS ESPECIALLY INTELLIGENT. NOTHING SHE SAYS BRINGS ANYTHING NEW TO THE TABLE BUT ZUCKER WAS LOOKING FOR A "PRETTY FACE," THAT KNEW SOMETHING ABOUT HOW THE JUDICIARY SYSTEM WORKS, SO HE HIRED HER.
I REALIZE THIS IS NOT A FLATTERING REMARK, BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF WOMEN WHO HAVE LEGAL SMARTS THAT HE COULD HAVE HIRED AND DIDN'T. PERHAPS SHE SHOULD RETHINK HER MAKE-UP WHICH YELLS "LOOK AT ME. I AM PRETTY AND SMART." NOT LISTEN TO ME BECAUSE I'M THOUGHT PROVOKING AND NICE LOOKING. THERE'S A DIFFERENCE.
I'M ALSO GETTING A LITTLE ANNOYED WITH JIM ACOSTA. I KNOW HE'S NOT AFRAID TO "GO THERE" DURING PRESS BRIEFINGS, BUT EVEN THE WASHINGTON POST IS GETTING A BIT TIRED OF HIS TACKLING EVERY TRUMP REPRESENTATIVE. YES, I STILL LOATHE TRUMP, BUT THE SURROGATES HAVE A JOB TO DO, AND IT'S ONE THING TO GET INFORMATION NOT READILY AVAILABLE AND ANOTHER TO JUST "JUMP ON THE BAND WAGON" FOR "MORE FACE TIME." WOODWARD AND BERSTEIN WEREN'T ON TELEVISION AND BECAME JOURNALISM'S ELITE, BECAUSE NO ONE KNEW WHO THEY WERE. THEY WERE PRINT REPORTERS WHO "FOLLOWED THE MONEY, WHEN NO ONE WAS LOOKING." THE PRESS WALKS A FINE LINE BETWEEN TELLING A STORY, AND "MAKING STUFF UP TO FILL AIR TIME." IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW MANY TIMES BOGUS PLAYS GOLF OR WHERE. WHAT MATTERS IS "UNCOVERING SOMETHING LESS OBVIOUS."
JIM ACOSTA SHOULD BE REMINDED THAT ON 9/11, THE TERRORISTS HAD EXPIRED VISAS AND IMMIGRATION, LEGAL OR NOT, IS STILL A PERTINENT ISSUE, EVEN IF WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO IS OBNOXIOUS, IGNORANT, BIAS, AND A RACIST.
