The First 100 Days of the Presidency

Written by Thursday, April 27, 2017
Prologue to an 'unpredictable' presidency By Robert Shrum This has been the most unconventional first 100 days of any presidency in modern history. His shortfalls have actually been politically fortunate. For example, President Trump apparently doesn't know how blessed he was by his most conspicuous failure to date: health care. The Trump-Ryan proposal encountered fierce opposition, would have hurt many who voted for him, and increased public approval of Obamacare. The president also signed a…

It has been 25 years since Los Angeles literally went up in flames. It was a horrific scene—buildings on fire, sounds of windows breaking and sirens from emergency vehicles, and people shouting “No Justice, No Peace.” The all-white jury in the Rodney King case returned with a verdict of not guilty, acquitting four white LAPD officers of excessive force. The date was April 29, 1992. By now, the videotape of King, lying on the ground while cops beat him until he was nearly unrecognizable, had been played so many times on television that the wedge between cops and L.A.s black…

Twenty years ago, before I was aware of the overtly racist and totally biased Fox News, I remember my wife’s uncle ranting and raving about how much he hated Bill O’Reilly. Then, I began paying attention to O’Reilly’s racist rants and the station’s daily dose of conservative propaganda. I couldn’t believe how Fox allowed their anchors to just say whatever they wanted, and present it as “news” without a shred of proof.
