Pompeo puts NPR reporter off his plane

Nick Schifrin (@nickschifrin) Tweeted:
State Department removes @NPR's @michelekelemen from @SecPompeo plane--where she was scheduled for a pool radio rotation--during upcoming trip to London, Kiev. Comes after @SecPompeo accused media of being "unhinged" after @NPRKelly interview and subsequent back and forth.

11. Donate to NPR if you haven't.

I see plenty of people knock NPR for being too conservative, but I don't really think that's the case, and they could probably use a donation about now (or even your local NPR station), if you haven't already done so.

17. I have an automatic donation to one of my NPR stations (I have three of them!)...

and while they aren't wildly "liberal" like some places I know, I find them pretty much as fair and balanced as it gets.

21. I donate twice a year.

This would be a good time for me to throw in an extra donation; probably should look for a small one in a conservative state.

Memo to Mike P: you probably thought these jobs from trump would be your stepping stones up into the Oval Office, yourself.

You can just forget that right now. You’re just more damaged goods now. As former Republican strategist Rick Wilson said, in a book he wrote: “Everything trump Touches Dies.”

I can't wait to hear this story in their normal "bothsiderism" style.

Sure, he extorted and blackmailed Ukraine with taxpayer funds to manufacture a criminal charge... using the full power of the state, butter emails!

Yes, the State department took punitive action against a news organization for having the gall to report news unflattering to the State....butter emails!

I'm sure, to be "fair", NPR will get right on reporting on...Butter emails!
