California high school newspaper to run profile of student porn worker

A Central California school district has decided to allow a high school newspaper to publish a profile of an 18-year-old student who works in the porn industry.

The Lodi Unified School District won’t stop the story from running Friday in the Bear Creek High School paper, the Bruin Voice, the Stockton Record reported Thursday.

The paper’s adviser, English teacher Kathi Duffel, had accused district officials of censorship after they demanded to review and approve the article before publication. In an April 11 letter, district Supt. Cathy Nichols-Washer warned of possible discipline, “up to and including dismissal” if Duffel refused.

Duffel refused, on free speech grounds, and officials in the San Joaquin Valley district, which has about 31,500 students, agreed to let an attorney review the story. Matthew Cate, who represents Duffel and Bailey Kirkeby, the student who wrote the article, concluded that the story didn’t violate education codes.

ARKANSAS HIGH SCHOOL SUSPENDS STUDENT-RUN NEWSPAPER

A lawyer for the district, Paul Gant, wrote to Cate on Wednesday to say the district wouldn’t prevent publication of the story. But Gant also called Duffel insubordinate for refusing to submit the article for review, adding: “There is no question that the article could be lawfully reviewed or censored,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

“Because the district has been denied an opportunity to preview the article, the district does not endorse it,” the district said in a statement. “Because we are charged with the education and care of our community’s children, we will always be diligent in our efforts to provide a safe learning environment for all students, while complying with our obligations under the law.”

The article profiles a student who sells nude videos, models for a porn agency and aspires to be a stripper, the Chronicle reported.

10 STUNNING DISPUTES OVER FREE SPEECH BETWEEN STUDENTS, FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATORS

Duffel had told the paper that the article doesn’t glamorize pornography, but it “will help students think more critically about the choices they do make at this age in their lives.”

The student who was interviewed said she wanted to dispel rumors. “I’m 18, what I’m doing is legal, and I don’t see why everyone is making such a big deal out of it,” Caitlin Fink said.

“I am very proud of the story and how it turned out,” Kirkeby, the Bruin Voice news editor, said.

California law ensures that the First Amendment applies to student journalists. It prohibits prior restraint of school newspaper stories unless they are obscene, libelous or slanderous, or incite unlawful acts or school disruptions.

Duffel’s students “are getting a front-row seat to our government in action,” she told the Chronicle. “What better way to teach the value of the First Amendment than by teaching them firsthand not to have their voices silenced?”

Duffel has relied on the law before to block censorship attempts over her nearly three decades advising the Bruin Voice. For example, in 2013 the principal at the time confiscated 1,700 copies of the newspaper when students exposed inaccuracies in the school safety handbook.

The Hill faces backlash for putting conservative-centric spin on Alabama Dem’s abortion remarks

Westlake Legal Group the-hill-faces-backlash-for-putting-conservative-centric-spin-on-alabama-dems-abortion-remarks The Hill faces backlash for putting conservative-centric spin on Alabama Dem's abortion remarks Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 722e96a7-b135-56df-9e37-22ebe5be78b7

The Hill is facing backlash for stressing the conservative reaction in its news story about the controversial abortion remarks made by a Democratic lawmaker in Alabama.

Rep. John Rogers of Birmingham expressed his opposition toward a bill approved by the Republican-controlled House that would ban all abortions — with an exemption for women whose pregnancies pose a health risk.

“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later. You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later,” Rogers said.

The Alabama Democrat continued by saying some children who face abortion could be “retarded” and “half-deformed.”

His inflammatory comments sparked outrage on social media, but when The Hill covered the controversy, the focus of its report was on conservative voices’ reactions instead of Rogers’ remarks.

“Conservatives seize on Alabama state Dem’s abortion comments,” the headline read.

The article included several reactions, from figures including Donald Trump Jr. and Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk.

Critics took to Twitter and mocked The Hill for the framing of its Rogers report.

The Hill did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

In Netflix doc, AOC reflects on 2018 run: ‘Nobody else would, so literally anybody could’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., became a Netflix star on Wednesday when the massive streaming service released a new documentary— painted by many as inspirational — following her audacious and uphill bid to beat longtime incumbent and former Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., in 2018.

The documentary follows Ocasio-Cortez, along with three other progressive, female candidates challenging Democrats in congressional races across the country. Throughout the film, Ocasio-Cortez portrays her run as an unlikely, almost irrational, attempt to take power away from the Democratic Party and put it back in the hands of ordinary people.

“If I were, like, a normal, rational person, I would have dropped out this race a long time ago,” Ocasio-Cortez, then a bartender, said at the beginning of the documentary.

She beat Crowley while the other candidates followed for the film — Amy Vilela of Nevada, Cori Bush of Missouri and Jean Swearengin of West Virginia — lost their races.

ALFRED ORTIZ: NEW AOC DOCUMENTARY ON NETFLIX RELIES ON CAPITALISM TO SPREAD SOCIALISM — OH, THE IRONY!

The documentary’s ending shows the now-iconic moment when Ocasio-Cortez covered her mouth in shock at the news that she’d defeated Crowley.

During the documentary, she addressed concerns about her newcomer status and the audacity she showed in taking on Crowley, who served as chairman of the House Democratic Caucus.

“In the beginning, the fundamental question is like: ‘Why you?’ Why do you think you can do this?’ The reason why was ’cause nobody else would — so literally anybody could, right? Because the alternative is no one,” she said.

The documentary sheds light on some of Ocasio-Cortez’s inspiration, and passion for the working class, when it delves into her personal life and relationship with her parents.

HOWARD DEAN: BIDEN’S BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THAT HIS PARTY HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY ’35-YEAR-OLDS’

“My father knew my soul better than anyone on this planet,” she said. “He really made me believe that I had true power in this world.”

She recalled how her mother would clean “a woman’s home in exchange for SAT lessons for me.” Her extended family, she said, “chipped in” everything they could to put a down payment on a house in Yorktown — a move she indicated was intended to give her a better shot at graduating high school than she had in New York City.

“When I was a kid, about half of New York City high schoolers would never graduate,” she said.

Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Multiple media outlets have heralded the documentary, with Rolling Stone calling Ocasio-Cortez “an inspiring example.” The Guardian called the film the “year’s most rousing political documentary.”

PELOSI PLAYS DOWN INFLUENCE OF AOC WING OF DEMOCRATS, SAYS IT’S ‘LIKE 5 PEOPLE’

On Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez promoted the film as a story both parties could enjoy.

“At early screenings, even Trump supporters left the film in tears – because it’s about the power of everyday people,” she said. Others indicated they had similar reactions.

Still, some on Twitter derided the film, dismissing it as an experience they’d willingly trade.

“#NoThanksIdRather cancel my Netflix subscription,” one person tweeted.

New Yorker portrays AG Barr as a massive ‘toady’ on top of White House

The New Yorker piled on to the mounting criticism of Attorney General William Barr after his testimony before the Senate on Wednesday.

In a tweet posted on Thursday, the magazine showed an image of the White House with a giant toad on top of it and bearing Barr’s face. “A toady in the White House,” the tweet read.

The cartoon appeared to suggest Barr acted as a sycophant for Trump and his administration as Democrats pressed for more details surrounding Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

The New Yorker’s cartoon wasn’t the first attack they lodged against the Trump administration. In 2018, the magazine published a front page with Trump falling on his face at the bottom of an escalator. Another cover from 2017 depicted Trump as a “dangerous clown” walking through a forest with a sinister grin.

On its website, the New Yorker also featured a column titled “Attorney General William Barr Acts as Donald Trump’s Human Shield on Capitol Hill.”

LEAKED MUELLER LETTER LEADS TO BARR GRILLING IN HYPERPARTISAN HEARING

That sort of criticism has been common since Barr summarized the Mueller report by saying, in part, that it contained insufficient evidence to accuse Trump of either obstruction of justice or conspiracy with Russia.

On the eve of Barr’s testimony, news surfaced that Mueller was dissatisfied with Barr’s summary but did not intend to call his conclusions inaccurate.

Barr, on Wednesday, received plenty of criticism from politicians who similarly indicated he abused his power as attorney general.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and former Vice President Joe Biden — both 2020 hopefuls — called for his resignation. “AG Barr is a disgrace,” Warren tweeted before calling for both his resignation and impeachment proceedings against Trump.

“I think he’s lost the confidence of the American people. I think he should,” Biden told a reporter who asked about resignation.

Mayor Pete lands TIME magazine cover, gets described as man some say could ‘vanquish America’s demons’

Westlake Legal Group mayor-pete-lands-time-magazine-cover-gets-described-as-man-some-say-could-vanquish-americas-demons Mayor Pete lands TIME magazine cover, gets described as man some say could 'vanquish America's demons' Liam Quinn fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/pete-buttigieg fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 58b05772-91d5-5d2c-aaca-fc1caeae7d16

Mayor Pete has picked up another impressive media endorsement.

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., has been rising in the polls in recent weeks and has now landed on the cover of TIME magazine.

Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten, appear on the cover of the prestigious magazine, along with the headline and sub-headline: “First Family — The unlikely, untested and unprecedented campaign of Mayor Pete Buttigieg.”

“To some Americans, Buttigieg may just be the man to vanquish America’s demons,” the piece states early on, after describing the scene when Buttigieg was confronted by a heckler dressed as the Devil.

PETE BUTTIGIEG TIED FOR 2ND IN NEW HAMPSHIRE POLL

“Buttigieg is a gay Episcopalian veteran in a party torn between identity politics and heartland appeals. He’s also a fresh face in a year when millennials are poised to become the largest eligible voting bloc. Many Democrats are hungry for generational change, and the two front-runners are more than twice his age.”

The piece continues: “‘If the substance of your ideas is progressive, but there’s mistrust about them among conservatives, you have three choices,’ Buttigieg tells TIME, sitting on his living-room couch in South Bend.

“‘One is to just change your ideas and make them more conservative. The second is to sort of be sneaky and try to make it seem like your ideas are more conservative than they are. And the third, the approach that I favor, is to stick to your ideas, but explain why conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of them.’”

TIME’s story then compares Buttigieg to the man he would ultimately have to topple if he succeeds in winning the Democratic nomination — President Trump.

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ LANDS TIME COVER: FROM ‘DORKY KID’ TO ‘THE PHENOM’

“In many ways, Buttigieg is Trump’s polar opposite: younger, dorkier, shorter, calmer and married to a man. His success may depend on whether Democrats want a fighter to match Trump, or whether Americans want to ‘change the channel,’ as Buttigieg puts it.

“‘People already have a leader who screams and yells,” he says. “How do you think that’s working out for us?’”

TIME’s detailed, nearly 4,100-word piece goes on to discuss Buttigieg’s relationship, his military experience and his childhood.

Mayor Pete has become something of a media darling as he has surged in the polls, so much so that the Afghanistan war veteran grabbed the support of just under 12 percent of those questioned in a New Hampshire poll. Taking into account the survey’s sampling error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points for likely Democratic primary voters, Sanders and Buttigieg were all knotted up.

“Buttigieg has become the new young force in the New Hampshire Democratic Primary as he positions himself in the top tier against better known Democrats like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders,” Suffolk University Political Research Center Director David Paleologos told Fox News.

“Buttigieg leads Biden, Sanders, and every other Democrat among LGBTQ households — an important demographic for grassroots support and a network of generous and loyal donors,” the pollster said.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews forced to apologize after likening executive privilege to losing virginity

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has apologized after bizarrely comparing the use of executive privilege to losing one’s virginity during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris following Attorney General Bill Barr’s testimony.

The network’s star made the 2020 Democratic candidate visibly uncomfortable by making the comparison during a Wednesday discussion about Barr saying White House counsel Don McGahn may not be able to testify if President Trump invokes executive privilege.

LEAKED MUELLER LETTER LEADS TO BARR GRILLING IN HYPERPARTISAN HEARING

“I guess the question is once he’s testified before Mr. Mueller’s special counsel investigation, how can he now say I won’t make the same testimony in public claiming executive privilege. I think it is sort of like virginity, kinda,” Matthews said.

“Once you start talking about a matter in your jurisdiction and then you say, ‘oh, I’m not doing it anymore.’ You can’t do it once you’ve started talking. I understand that’s how executive privilege works. Once you have given it up, you can’t grab it back. How do you see it?”

Harris, looking rather awkward, replied: “I’m not going to go with you on that metaphor, Chris.”

BARR ACCUSES DEMS OF USING CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROCESS AS ‘POLITICAL WEAPON,’ AS HEARING TENSIONS FLARE

Shortly after the exchange, Matthews had to come back to it to issue an on-air apology for the inappropriate comparison.

“I’m sorry about that metaphor I used before. I’ve been admonished already about it. So I really shouldn’t have used it in this context, however,” he said.

“I’m sorry about that metaphor I used before. I’ve been admonished already about it. So I really shouldn’t have used it in this context, however.”

— Chris Matthews

Matthew’s show “Hardball” pounced following the attorney general’s testimony in front the Senate Judiciary Committee, criticizing Barr for undermining the Robert Mueller report.

He also suggested whether Barr is still “upholding his oath to the Constitution,” and floating the idea of impeachment of the attorney general and Trump.

The hearing came after the Washington Post reported Tuesday evening that Mueller contacted – in a letter and phone call – the attorney general to let him know that his summary “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the Russia investigation report.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday criticized the Mueller report and imagined a scenario where a Democratic presidential hopeful called on China to “get” President Trump’s tax returns.

The eyebrow-raising theory came during an interview on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.” The conversation was largely dedicated to Maddow and Clinton comparing problems they found with Attorney General Bill Barr’s hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier in the day.

Clinton ripped Senate Republicans for not passing bipartisan legislation that was meant to take action against foreign interference in elections in the future “under orders from the White House.” The two-time presidential candidate– in an apparent effort to show the preposterousness of it all– then offered a hypothetical situation where a Democrat running in 2020 blatantly makes an appeal to a foreign country to help with the election.

“Imagine, Rachel, that you had one of the Democratic nominees for 2020 on your show and that person said, ‘You know, the only other adversary of ours who’s anywhere near as good as the Russians is China. So why should Russia have all the fun? And since Russia is clearly backing Republicans, why don’t we ask China to back us?… And not only that, China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns. I’m sure our media would richly reward you,” she theorized.

Clinton said– according to the Mueller report– that it would not be a conspiracy because it is done openly. She theorized that the IRS offices would be bombarded with cyber attacks and a new Wikileaks would emerge that could release the information.

“Nothing wrong with that,” Clinton sarcastically said.

Bret Easton Ellis, noted American author, appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Wednesday and talked about the continued reaction of “hysterical liberals” to President Trump.

The author of “Less Than Zero,” “American Psycho” and “The Rules of Attraction” said that today’s political climate has created an environment in which anyone who doesn’t “adamantly condemn” Trump with “a hysterical overreaction” is deemed colluding with the president.

“I’m a freethinker in many ways,” Ellis told host Tucker Carlson, “and I did see something wrong with the portrayal of Trump in the media. I thought the media was covering him in a way that wasn’t necessarily truthful.”

He told Carlson that although he didn’t vote for Trump, his observation about the media got him marked as a “psycho rightwing guy.”

“I suddenly got branded a conservative,” he said, noting he is a fictional author and believes his ideology is middle of the road and nonpartisan.

He reckoned that the liberal xenophobia stems from a cognitive dissonance: coastal elites who are entitled and who felt betrayed by Trump’s win.

His latest book, “White,” is his first work of nonfiction that is about what he calls, “Generation Wuss,” otherwise known as the young who are branded as overly sensitive snowflakes.

He hopes that a pushback happens for the left’s “authoritarian language belief” of what can and can’t be said in the realms of art and creativity.

Neither side likes the hyper-tyrannical political correctness, but the end of policing thought and speech isn’t yet in sight, Ellis says.

He noted: “I’ve never tried to offend anyone, and I’m always amazed how I’ve managed to trigger generation after generation after generation.”

Rachel Maddow, Democrats used misleading Barr video to suggest he lied to Congress, reporter finds

MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show” and certain congressional Democrats used a misleading video in order to suggest Attorney General William Barr lied to lawmakers, a Washington Free Beacon report found Wednesday.

Maddow played a clip of the exchange between Barr and Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., from a hearing in early April about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Her show tweeted out the clip Tuesday night.

In that hearing, Barr replied to Van Hollen that he didn’t know if Mueller agreed with a “conclusion” of his about the report. As Free Beacon reporter Alex Grisword noted, it came after Van Hollen asked Barr about his findings regarding obstruction-of-justice allegations.

BARR: MUELLER REPORT IS DONE. WE NEED TO STOP USING DOJ AS ‘POLITICAL WEAPON’

“In context, it’s obvious Barr wasn’t being asked whether Mueller agreed with his ‘conclusion’ meaning his four-page summary, his framing of his facts, etc., but about his ultimate conclusion on obstruction of justice,” Grisword wrote.

Mueller had left that question open in the report, which had not yet been publicly released.

It was revealed late Tuesday that Mueller had already expressed frustration to Barr in March about how his findings were portrayed.

Van Hollen called on the attorney general to quit his job Wednesday, saying Barr “totally misled me, the Congress, and the public. He must resign.” Congressional Democrats have accused Barr of trying to spin Mueller’s report to favor the president.

Meantime, Maddow asked on her show, “When the attorney general said he doesn’t know how Mueller felt about his conclusion, and he says that under oath, is that a problem?” MSNBC did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Barr has told members of the House Judiciary Committee that he will not testify before their committee Thursday. Barr appeared Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
