T. Article: Republican Candidate For U. S. House in Montana Attacks Guardian Reporter

’17 May 24 Wensday     E. D. T.  23:18     Bozeman, MT  U. S. A.

Today, Wens. 24 May, ’17 Greg Gianforte, Republican and candidate for the U. S. House Of Representatives in Montanta got into a physical confrontation with Guardian Newspaper reporter Ben Jacobs.  This incident happened at a campaign headquarters office volunteer barbeque event in Bozeman, Montana.  A television crew was setting up for an interview in a side room of the office.  Jacobs tried to ask a question of Gianforte regarding the Congressional Budget Office score of the Republican sponsored American Health Care Act.  The C. B. O. report was just released today and the Special Election for the seat in the U. S House Of Reresentatives from Montana is tomorrow.  Gianforte was in the room, apparently waiting to be interviewed.  Jacobs entered to ask Gianforte his questions regarding the C. B. O. report prior to the television interview starting, stating that this was his only opportunity to do this that day.  Gianforte had an altercation with the Guardian reporter.  Reportedly, he broke the reporter’s glasses and “body slammed” the reporter to the floor, yelling “Get the hell out of here!”  Jacobs had his telephone audio recorder recording and recorded the incident in full.

After the incident, Ben Jacobs called his editor and then local police.  Police, an ambulance and the local Fire Department were dispatched to the site.  He was then taken to the hospital in the ambulance and treated for an injured elbow with an x- ray.  The audio he recorded was posted on the Guardian website.  Find the audio here: https://youtu.be/fhoH4v8xYlU  The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.

Campaign spokesman Shane Scanlon released a statement from the campaign blaming the incident entirely on the reporter.  The Guardian Newspaper website released an article on the incident, unequivocally describing the incident as an assault on Jacobs.  Find the article here: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/may/24/greg-gianforte-bodyslams-reporter-ben-jacobs-montana

Later, Ben Jacobs called in to the MSNBC primetime news program “All In” and was interviewed by Chris Hayes.  He described the incident and played the entire audio segment.  BuzzFeed News reporter Alexis Levinson was directly outside the room and could see into the room where the altercation took place.  She witnessed the incident with an obstructed view and was also interviewed by Chris Hayes, stating she could hear the body slam as a “loud crash”.  Tom Ricks with Foreign Policy magazine condemned the incident on air.  A fair hearing of the Jacobs audio recording supports his version of events and contradicts the Gianforte version of events.  Later reporting on MSNBC quoted a Fox News reporter who was a direct witness to the assault and who identified Gianforte as the attacker.  The reporter, Alicia Arcana, also stated that Gianforte punched Jacobs, grabbed him by the neck, threw him down and then apologized for the assault.  A press conference by the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office was inconclusive on what happened during the incident and have not made any arrests to this time.  There is ongoing television news coverage of this breaking story.

The Special Election on Thurs. 25 May, ’17 is being conducted to elect a new U. S. Representative to replace Ryan Zinke, who was appointed as Secretary Of The Interior by the Trump Administration.  Rob Quist is the Democrat candidate in the election and has declined comment to this time.  Will this affect the election?  The next 24 hours will tell that story!

T. Article: Apparent Terrorist Attack in Manchester, England

T. Article: Apparent Terrorist Attack in Manchester, England

Mark Skogman     Senior Reporter     Spectrum 360 Media

’17 May 22 Mon.  E. D. T.  21:36     Manchester, England

During the 6:00PM E. D. T. hour today, Mon. 22 May, ’17, there was an apparent terrorist attack in Manchester, England at the Manchester Arena that was the site of an Ariana Grande concert.  The concert was ending as the attack occurred and was not actually in the large arena itself but either in the lobby or entrance areas or directly outside the venue and was a bombing attack with one explosion and apparently only one lone suicide bomber.  Initial reports from social media and local media in England indicate that 19 people are dead and 50 people were injured in this attack.  The attack apparently was an independent attack.

Other reports indicated Police later detonated a device near the arena and advised people to not be afraid as this was being done by the police to secure the area.  This appeared to be an additional bomb left by the bomber.  Later reports indicated that this information was wrong and that the purported bomb was just a pile of clothing and there was no second explosion.  There has been no information from the police as to the perpetrator, or claims of responsibility to this time, so a lot of basic information is unconfirmed or unknown at this time.  The Manchester Arena is the largest concert venue in England and has a capacity of about 21,000 people.  Ariana Grande is a young American pop musician.

T. Article: James Comey Fired As Director Of The Federal Bureau Of Investigation

James Comey Fired As Director Of The Federal Bureau Of Investigation

Mark Skogman     Senior Reporter     Spectrum 360 Media

’17 May 09 Tue.     Washington D. C.

Happening Now: media reports indicate that President Trump has fired James Comey as Director of the Federal Bureau Of Investigation (F. B. I.)!  Surely, there was legitimate cause to fire him but why was the timing today?  Andrew McCabe, the Deputy Director of the F. B. I., is this now Director of the F. B. I.  Is this a slow motion, Nixon style “Saturday night massacre” by the Trump Administration, motivated by the danger that the F. B. I. investigation into Michael Flynn and his and the Trump Administration’s connections to Russia pose to this Presidency???  On MSNBC’s Hardball, Chris Matthews just used the term “Tuesday night massacre”.  So, I am not the only one wondering about this aspect of this situation!  Now, the U. S. Senator from New York, Charles “Chuck” Schumer just asked the question I asked earlier in this paragraph…… “Why now?”
