A Guide to Bullsh*t, Power-Serving Journalism Phrases

Really great thought piece on the words we use. When you write thousands of words a day, every day, you do fall back on certain phrases to make the process a little more efficient. This Canadian piece highlights some and what words would be a better choice. I remember when I worked in a newsroom and we would often have discussions on the best word to use in something we were writing. I miss that interaction and geeking out over word usage among my colleagues.

These phrases function as PR for police, victim-blame sexual assault survivors, support Canadian foreign policy, and minimize racism.

Hey now! Who’s that reporter out in the field? Feels good to get out and do some “on the ground” reporting. Check out this beautiful looking dispensary by Curaleaf in Ware Massachusetts. #curaleaf #dispensaries #GreenMarketReport

CFN Media Gets PPP Loan, But Stiffs Workers

I really dislike companies that don't pay the people that have worked for them. I would never dream of doing something like this. It really shows what your true character is.

CFN Enterprises Inc. (OTC:CNFN) also known as CFN Media may have gotten a generous PPP loan, but the company isn’t sharing its largesse with its contract labor. Two people who both worked for the company for years have been left unpaid and the company has turned to ghosting them. CFN Media receive...

6 Weed Wonder Women Kicking Bud and Taking Names in the Cannabis Industry

Truly humbled at being included in the group of women. Journalism is a calling and more so now when people call us “fake news” or criticize the industry despite having zero knowledge themselves of what it takes to report and write a story. Thanks #cannabis.net for the recognition

It should be noted that the importance of certain female pioneers to the development of the cannabis industry cannot be overemphasized. From research to...

Trump singled out two CBS News journalists as people who particularly irritated him — Weijia Jiang and Paula Reid — during the briefings.

“It wasn’t Donna Reed, I can tell you that,” Trump said, referring to the film and TV star best known for playing Mary Bailey in “It’s A Wonderful Life” and later starring as the mom in an eponymous family TV sitcom of the ’50s and ’60s.

“Paula Reid, she’s sitting there and I say, ‘How angry. I mean, what’s the purpose?’ They’re not even tough questions, but you see the attitude of these people, it’s like incredible.

Women with attitude! They should be submissive like housewives from the 1950's. On the one hand, he's complaining they are 'angry', but then he says they aren't asking tough questions. So who asks an angry easy question? He's an idiot and a misogynist and I hope these female journalists keep asking these tough questions and I hope they keep getting under his skin. Thank you political reporters.

Brooks Brothers Riot 2.0—Republican congressmen create a day that will go down in absurdity

And the press said No after being offered pizza from the rule breaking republicans.
“Proving, if it needed to be proven, that the Capitol Hill press corps had infinitely more concern about following ethical guidelines than had Republicans in Congress.”

In the future, it’s possible that everyone will be asked, “Where were you when 20 white guys in suits invaded a closed-door hearing, violated the security of an electronics-free environment, tampered with a witness, and basically brought the...
