I was so bummed to miss the 2020 SXSW due to COVID. Hopefully, our panel will get voted in and I can make plans for 2022. Please vote!

While many cannabis activists are hoping for the product to be federally legal, the outcome could end up being the opposite of what they envision. If cannabis is legalized, consumers could end up buying pre-rolled joints at their local Circle K or 7-11. Even Wal-Mart could end up selling cannabis be...

I know a lot of people think reporters are awful. We're fake news. But we work hard at a job that doesn't pay well because we love it. We put ourselves out there in public every day, something few jobs do. This weekend, I managed to get a soundbite from Senator Schumer at the #NYC cannabis parade. This was a big deal because my company is a small co and not a mainstream big-time media co. I was feeling pretty proud of myself. Then, I see later that day a cannabis CEO insulting me on Twitter and industry people liking and retweeting his insult. In his opinion, I can't read or write because GMR wrote something about his company. No opinion, just literally stating something that was in the company's OWN filings. TBH it stung. It took away my moment of happiness for a few hours. It's hard when someone with 10k followers insults you. Then I decided who was this ja****le? Why allow him to bring me down? At that point, I moved on. I noted who liked what he said and will remember them. Don't let the turkeys get you down! Stay strong fellow journalists. Focus on the wins.

New York Post Reporter Who Wrote False Kamala Harris Story Resigns

Unfortunately for this journalist her career is tainted as she admits writing a false story. I guess since she quit she found her moral compass? As a reporter your reputation is built on the truths you tell.

The front-page article in the Murdoch tabloid claimed that copies of a children’s book by the vice president were given to migrant children as part of a “welcome kit.”

Rare trial of U.S. journalist arrested on the job begins in Iowa

Carlos Martínez de la Serna, program director for the Committee to Protect Journalists, said Sahouri’s case exemplified police mistreatment of American journalists. “It is ironic,” he said. “She was covering opposition against police brutality and she was subject to this type of harassment on the spot.”

Des Moines Register reporter Andrea Sahouri faces 30 days in jail -- a rare case of a U.S. journalist charged with a crime while reporting.

A Guide to Bu****it, 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.

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...

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.
