Op-ed: Tribune is biased against Murray Energy 15.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Our experience with The Salt Lake Tribune over more than a decade has shown that this newspaper and its writer, Mr. Robert Gehrke, are more interested in creating biased, false news than in reporting the facts. Your article, “Coal Exec Bob Murray’s Attacks on John Oliver Shouldn’t Silence Critical Voices” clearly shows this. It was Oliver, Time Warner, and Home Box Office Inc. that produced a blatantly false attack on Murray Energy and Robert E. Murray, not vice versa. Further, referring to Murr...

Exclusive: Donald Jr. to Resign as Trump’s Son 12.7.2017 American Prospect
(Photo: Albin Lohr-Jones/picture-alliance/dpa/AP Images) Donald Trump Jr. Facing a rising chorus of allegations of law-breaking and even treason, Donald Trump Jr. will announce today that he is resigning his position as the president’s son. In a draft of a letter to be released “imminently or soon, whichever comes first,” Trump wrote: When Americans elected Dad as their president and the Trumps as their government (with the largest majority in American history if not more), they entrusted all of us—Eric, Ivanka, Tiffany, Barron, Melania, Jared, me, maybe two or three of those Russian girls (I’ve never been entirely sure)—with putting them, Americans, first (or at least, right behind us). That’s what we’ve all tried to do—Jared in the Middle East and Arabia and Israel, Ivanka in the parts of factories and coal mines set aside for the “paid leave workers” (the parts with slower assembly lines or in the mines, not down so deep), and me with Russia—with our friends in Russia, the businessmen (wow, what a ...
