Can We Get the News without the Paper? In Los Angeles and Orange Counties, it traditionally was the Times and the Register that established the news menu every day. Local TV and radio stations followed up on what the papers reported, adding their own individual enterprise and commentary. Even in the digital age -- with competition from more alternative sources -- it’s been the papers and their websites that have been the dominant sources of local news. How long can that last? Last week, the Orange County Register asked reporters to help deliver papers on Sunday. Also last week, the LA Times canceled set vacations and sick days, explaining that reporters will now have the “flexibility” to “make work-life balance decisions for themselves.”
OC Immigrants Get Letters Saying They Can't Vote A Republican candidate for Congress in Orange County says he was not the one who mailed a letter in Spanish , saying that it's illegal to vote in a federal election if you're an "immigrant."

Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us."

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
