US — #WeeklyAddress: October 29 – November 4: Suspicious package sent to CNN’s Atlanta office intercepted

first_img June 7, 2021 Find out more News Suspicious package sent to CNN’s Atlanta office intercepted Crowds attending a Trump rally in Estero, Florida, on October 31 heckled journalists and mimicked the president’s anti-media rhetoric. Reporter Sabrina Siddiqui tweeted that day that “ahead of Trump’s rally at Hertz Arena in Estero, Florida, the crowd has broken into chants of ‘CNN sucks.’” Some rally-goers also approached the press area while waiting for the rally to begin, yelling obscenities at journalists in attendance. One man who wore a t-shirt that read, “f— the media” told The Daily Beast he wore it in the hope of sending a message to CNN journalist and White House Correspondent Jim Acosta and the rest of the press. During his speech, President Trump criticized the “far-left media,” to which rally-goers responded by leaning in toward the press area and yelling, “Tell the truth” and “fake news,” among other expressions. In late July, Acosta and other journalists reported on an unusually vitriolic and hostile climate at a Tampa rally, where journalists were heckled and given the middle finger by rally-goers.

President Trump says reporters are “creating violence by not writing the truth” RSF_en Chanters awaiting Desantis and Rubio spit in direction of CNN camera News Below are the most notable incidents regarding threats to press freedom in the US during the week of October 29 – November 4: Crowds heckle the press before and during Trump rally in Florida While waiting for gubernatorial nominee Ron Desantis and Senator Marco Rubio to arrive at a community outreach event in Miami on November 1, those gathered to greet them chanted “CNN sucks” before spitting in the direction of a CNN camera. Daily Beast reporter Andrew Desiderio tweeted a video of the incident, noting the chanters referred to the network as the “Castro News Network.” Outside the White House on November 2, ABC reporter Karen Travers asked President Trump about his role in encouraging politically-motivated violence, to which he told her that “reporters are creating violence by not writing the truth.” In a video, Travers mentioned a recent ABC-Washington Post poll that says 49 percent of registered voters believe he has encouraged violence through his political rhetoric. President Trump pointed his finger at the reporter and said, “You’re creating violence by your questions. You know what. You are creating—you,” before blaming other reporters and the “fake news” for the violence as well. These statements echo President Trump’s criticisms of the media last week for failing to “to set a civil tone” and for unfairly criticizing him “at will.” Receive email alerts News For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en.

The number experiencing financial distress increased by 11% this year and that 25% of agents are currently facing financial problems of one kind or another.Begbie Traynor  also says London agents are experiencing more financial problems than those outside the capital.Partner Julie Palmer (pictured) told The Daily Telegraph that the property industry has not only had to deal with the effects of the EU Referendum but also what she called “crippling public policy changes, which have rocked the sector to its foundations”.But the company’s research also reveals that the worst may be over for the property sector. Begbies Taylor says that although year-on-year financial distress has increased, it has eased for many companies since the EU Referendum vote.insvolvency property sector begbies traynor estate agents December 19, 2016Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Costa’s late winner sends Juve to Champions League knockouts

first_imgRonaldo fired his effort from the corner of the box straight at Guilherme who spilled the ball through his legs, allowing Ramsey to poke home from the goal-line on the greasy surface.The Russians equalised eight minutes later after Juve took their foot off the gas.Maciej Rybus whipped a cross towards Miranchuk who tapped in unopposed with Wojciech Szczesny on the floor after his header bounced back off the post.The equaliser seemed to inspire Lokomotiv and they could have taken the lead less than 10 minutes later.Miranchuk wasted a chance to double his tally after glancing his header over the crossbar from a chipped cross by Rifat Zhemaletdinov.Ronaldo troubled Guilherme from a set-piece once again three minutes into the second half, the Brazil-born Russia international nervously parrying away the long-range effort.Guilherme denied Ronaldo again nine minutes later sending the Portugal attacker’s powerful shot over the bar with an impressive save.Ronaldo was substituted off for Paulo Dybala on 82 minutes with Sarri keeping an eye on Sunday’s Serie A game against AC Milan, despite the former Real Madrid forward’s frustration at the decision.Juve dominated the final moments and Costa clinched their sixth straight last 16 appearance with a tidy side-footed finish in injury time for his first Bianconeri goal since January.Share on: WhatsApp PHOTO via @juventusfcenMoscow, Russia | AFP | Substitute Douglas Costa’s injury-time winner secured Juventus their spot in the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday after a 2-1 victory over Lokomotiv Moscow.The Brazilian winger struck a magnificent, last-gasp solo goal for the Italian champions after Aleksei Miranchuk had cancelled out Aaron Ramsey’s fourth-minute opener.Juve are three points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of Group D ahead of the Spanish side’s game at Bayer Leverkusen, who will likely battle Lokomotiv for a Europa League place.“We have achieved the first objective of the season. Lokomotiv were defending low but counter-attacked well in the first half,” Juve captain Leonardo Bonucci said.“We created a few chances and finally managed to earn the victory,” he added.Juve’s Maurizio Sarri substituted an angry Cristiano Ronaldo during the final 10 minutes due to knee and thigh problems.“I replaced him just because I feared he could aggravate his injury,” Sarri said.Lokomotiv coach Yuri Semin made one change from the weekend’s draw at Ufa as on-loan Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario came in for Murilo Cerqueira.Sarri brought in seven new faces from Saturday’s Turin derby victory which included handing Wales midfielder Ramsey his first start for the club in the competition.Ramsey, whose appearances for his new side this season have been restricted by injury, opened the scoring early after Lokomotiv goalkeeper Guilherme fumbled Ronaldo’s free-kick.last_img read more
