The Los Angeles Times Just Completely Shit On ‘Our Dishonest President’ Donald Trump And OMG You Have To Read This

Newspapers are not fuckin’ around any more.

The Los Angeles Times went IN on Donald Trump today with an editorial board piece that trended most of the day and honestly had us just dropping our jaw in amazement reading it.

Sure, having an opinion about the (terrible) job Trump is doing is one thing, but the Times goes way, way further than that.

Like this, a particularly damning passage early in the piece:

“What is most worrisome about Trump is Trump himself. He is a man so unpredictable, so reckless, so petulant, so full of blind self-regard, so untethered to reality that it is impossible to know where his presidency will lead or how much damage he will do to our nation. His obsession with his own fame, wealth and success, his determination to vanquish enemies real and imagined, his craving for adulation — these traits were, of course, at the very heart of his scorched-earth outsider campaign; indeed, some of them helped get him elected. But in a real presidency in which he wields unimaginable power, they are nothing short of disastrous.”

Wow.

Or this, later on in their work, the first in a series of pieces that’ll run throughout the week on The Donald:

“But if it is to do so, those who oppose the new president’s reckless and heartless agenda must make their voices heard. Protesters must raise their banners. Voters must turn out for elections. Members of Congress — including and especially Republicans — must find the political courage to stand up to Trump. Courts must safeguard the Constitution. State legislators must pass laws to protect their citizens and their policies from federal meddling. All of us who are in the business of holding leaders accountable must redouble our efforts to defend the truth from his cynical assaults.”

Wow, again.

Jaws… dropped.

Read the entire thing HERE — and maybe stick around looking for more, because the Times is set to release three massive things over the next three days.

Apple May Offer HBO, Showtime, and Starz Channels as Single TV Package

Apple is considering offering HBO, Showtime, and Starz television channels in a combined “premium TV bundle” to be delivered to viewers via Apple TV and iOS devices, according to a new report on Sunday.



Apple already enables users to buy the named channels individually, but according to a source who spoke to Recode, Apple has approached the three networks about rolling them up into a single paid package similar to how conventional TV operators market their channels.






However, unlike paid TV operators like Charter, which usually require consumers to subscribe to a basic range of TV channels before offering a premium bundle, Apple wants to provide the package as an upfront standalone option for all its consumers.



Apple has yet to nail down a deal with any of the networks, according to industry sources, while representatives from HBO, Stars, and Showtime declined to comment on the report. Apple also didn’t respond to requests for comment.



Apple currently offers HBO for $15 a month, Showtime for $11 a month, and Stars for $9 a month, but Recode had no information on the price of any possible bundle package.



Apple’s attempts to set up a traditional streaming bundle of TV channels have come to nothing in recent years, despite rival companies like Google and Hulu announcing plans of their own.


In 2015, Apple was in talks for a streaming television service that would bundle several popular live channels and on-demand television at a price point of approximately $30 per month, but Apple canned the project after being unable to establish the necessary deals because content providers were reluctant to unbundle their channels.



The company’s assertive negotiation tactics with cable providers have also been blamed, with Apple executives accused of making demands networks aren’t prepared to meet. Content providers meanwhile have been reluctant to agree to Apple’s terms for fear of potentially compromising their traditional revenue streams.


Apart from its TV subscription service ambitions, Apple is said to be building a “significant” business centered around creating original, scripted television shows and possibly even movies, for a possible launch by the end of 2017.
