Associated Press denies Pyongyang bureau under North Korean control



The Associated Press is pushing back on a report its bureau in North Korea is nearly completely controlled by the North Korean government.

In a lengthy article for NKNews.org, Nate Thayer, a former AP stringer, reports that an internal draft agreement between the AP and North Korea’s state media outlet the Korea Central News Agency, more or less gives KCNA complete power over the bureau, its staff and its work.

Anonymous staff members in the bureau, established by the AP in 2012, told Thayer that “AP tries not to be a mouthpiece of North Korea, but it is basically impossible under the terms the bureau operates.” Certain staff members in the bureau are “hand-picked” by the North Koreans. Thayer also notes that no stories about the Sony hack, or the six-week disappearance of Kim Jong Un were written from the Pyongyang bureau.

--Isn't this much the same arrangement that the Associated Press has with the Obama Administration in America?

Republicans excited by AG nominee who supports Obama's illegal actions


President Barack Obama’s pick to be the next attorney general is winning over Republicans.

Loretta Lynch, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, has met privately with several Republican senators in recent weeks, earning some of their early support ahead of what is expected to be a contentious set of nomination hearings early next year.

When immigration surfaced during her meeting with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Lynch said she agreed with an opinion from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel that said Obama’s executive action on immigration was legally sound, telling the senator the opinion was “well-reasoned.”

Tylenol wants lesbians to swallow


Tylenol is running an online ad showing a non-traditional family at the holidays. The family is non traditional because it features two lesbians, one of the lesbian's ex husbands, the ex-husbands apparent gay partner, and very happy children. They all seem very happy--the dad whose wife divorced him to become a lesbian, the dad's new gay partner, even the kids, who don't appear even slightly confused by all this.

Christians disappearing from Iraq, can you guess why?


Just a year ago, an Advent service at St. George’s Chaldean Catholic Church would have drawn 300 to 400 worshipers, says the Rev. Miyassir al-Mokhlasee. But now only around 75 people are scattered across its pews.

Ringed by concrete blast walls and police checkpoints, the church has seen its congregation shrink for the past decade. The nation’s Christian population has plummeted from more than a million to what community leaders estimate is less than 400,000 today.

Conquests by extremists from the Islamic State, known for their cutthroat brutality and intolerance for other religions, have delivered another blow to Christians in their historic heartland.

For the first time in well more than a millennium, the plains of Nineveh and its provincial capital of Mosul have been virtually emptied of Christians. Islamic State fighters, who control the northern region, had ordered Christian residents to convert, pay a tax for keeping their faith or face execution.

Libtards at Vox: What voter ID problem?


Loyola University law professor Justin Levitt tried to quantify the epidemic of voter ID fraud that's forcing so many states to pass restrictive voter ID laws. He looked for not only cases where someone was convicted, but tracked "any specific, credible allegation that someone may have pretended to be someone else at the polls, in any way that an ID law could fix."

Out of roughly a billion votes cast, he found 31 credible cases of voter ID fraud. And that is, he thinks, an overestimate.
