Sunday Morning Shows

Every Sunday morning I record as many of the news shows that I can. Priority is given to "Fox News Sunday" and I record the other shows as best I can. On ABC's "This Week" Sam Donaldson interviewed Portland, Ore., police chief Mark Kroeker on his department's refusal to cooperate with the FBI's request to interview certain individuals. Kroeker referred to various Oregon statutes which forbid police interviewing people who are not suspected of crimes. Kroeker referred to the Portland city attorney's opinion that these interviews were illegal under Oregon law, and so his hands were tied and he could do nothing. "We follow the law in Oregon," Kroeker said. Well, there's some debate about that. Donaldson dropped the ball by not challenging Kroeker with the opinion by Oregon's top law-enforcement officer, Attorney General Hardy Myers, that such interviews are, in fact, legal. Maybe Chief Kroeker should follow the legal opinions of the attorney general in determining what is and what is not allowed.

New column: Newsom's electric cars nirvana collides with reality- CalMatters https://calmatters.org/commentary/2022/05/electric-cars-california-newsom/

This is clever framing to preserve the narrative without actually touching what’s at stake.

Here’s what the poll actually says:

📊 37% say abortion should be “always legal” (preserving Roe)
📊 60% say there should be limits on abortion (which would overturn Roe) https://twitter.com/meetthepress/status/1525821101749714944

BUT abortion is now center stage:

60% say abortion should be legal all or most of the time — the highest ever in our polls — versus 37% who say it should illegal all or most of the time.

And abortion has now become the TOP issue for single-issue voters.
