Election integrity activists are at odds over whether raising too many concerns about the security of US elections did more harm than good.
Journalists shed light on new challenges they face, but offer few solutions. Does White House abuse of the press reflect a lack of discipline — or something more sinister?
From Watergate to Iraq War propaganda, conflicts between the Deep State and the Executive branch have proven helpful to the public. They provided a glimpse into the White House and the nation’s intelligence apparatus, leading to important reforms. So perhaps an open conflict between the Trump administration and the Deep State isn’t such a bad thing.
The US is lagging far behind many other countries with regard to the percentage of women in the national legislature — even places like Iraq and Afghanistan. On the 100th anniversary of the swearing in of the first female member of Congress, we look at the reasons for this enduring inequality.
The FBI is now only accepting FOIA requests via fax, “snail mail” or through a special online portal, limiting the options for submitting requests from the public. If transparency advocates had not intervened, the Bureau’s policy would have been far worse.
Deep State analysis is at the core of what we do at WhoWhatWhy. With that genre apparently no longer simply dismissed as “conspiracy theory,” the corporate media seem to be playing catch up to a game that is already well into overtime.
A journalist who has witnessed a lot — the 1968 police riots during the Chicago convention, Los Angeles following the Charles Manson murders, the implosion of the US Army at the end of the Vietnam War — has never seen anything as depressing as the election of Donald J. Trump.
In calling the media an “enemy of the American people,” Donald Trump takes an ugly page from an 80-year-old playbook on how to dismantle a democracy.
The voting rights of minorities are under attack in Georgia — as they are in many GOP-controlled states. This month, however, voters with “foreign” names booked an important win in the Peach State.
If Trump were hypothetically nominated to any number of cabinet positions, such as Treasury Secretary or Secretary of State, his foreign holdings and conflicts of interest would disqualify him. But in reality he is the president, so no problem. Does anyone see a problem?
