McConnell presses Dems on Obama water rule veto

The Senate is expected to take a procedural vote Thursday morning on the veto override of the Clean Water, or "Waters of the United States," rule. The veto resolution originally passed the Senate under the Congressional Review Act with 53 votes.

McConnell added that Obama's veto showed two things, that the president "apparently stands with Washington bureaucrats on this issue, not the American people" and that he "thinks Americans' clean water rules should be based on Washington politics."

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation extends the administration's oversight of small bodies of water, including streams and wetlands.

L.A. Times Disowns Reporter (Ken Dilanian )Outed as a CIA Collaborator

Ken Dilanian

Now, it is not uncommon for national security reporters to vet facts with government functionaries, but the emails indicate Dilanian went much further than that, not only sharing stories prior to publication (a big no-no in almost every newsroom) but he also entered into discussions about how the CIA could bend public opinion of drone strikes their way.

On at least one occasion he re-wrote a lede as per their dictates. He also reported as fact, in the pages of the Los Angeles Times, a CIA claim that there was no collateral murder in a 2012 drone strike on Al Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al-Libi. An Amnesty International report disputes that sanitized version of events, citing eyewitnesses that claim upwards of 15 people, including Afghan tribesmen unaffiliated with Al Qaeda, were killed in the drone strike. Obviously, a drone strike that only kills the bad guys is much more palatable to the American people than a drone strike that kills 15. But that's not journalism, that's propaganda.
