Good Morning. It’s Thursday, 16 February 2017 and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
More of the same from Washington. The administration is upset about the leaks, not about the facts in the leaks. It should be, of course, the other way around. The situation will continue to evolve and to deteriorate as America has been put on dual-channel news flow: one from the administration; one from the press/media. Interesting times indeed, but only the media provides sources and checks facts.
The Trump administration took another body blow when proposed Labor Secretary Andy Puzder withdrew his name from consideration after worker protests at Hardees and Carl’s Jr. restaurants–where he was CEO– across America. Guess he decided that the critical exposure of his management style the nomination brought was not worth the glory of the title. Wonder how this entire episode will affect sales at the restaurants? If they go down as a result, expect more drama.
And..the world goes on.
Catch up on what’s happening with the rest of the world by reading the front pages of the World’s Greatest newspapers.
