GOP 2016 Presidential Debates: one down, 16 to go

The GOP 2016 presidential candidates will again be split into two sessions for tonight's debates on CNN, but the pool is getting smaller, as Rick Perry suspended his campaign, bowing out before being in the second-tier debates for a second time, and former Virgina governor Jim Gilmore, with a hair above 0% nationally, will participate ... via Twitter*. But the biggest news on the main stage is the inclusion of Carly Fiorina, thanks to her rise in the few polls since the Fox debate (previously). [more inside]

Decade Of Betrayal: Mexican Repatriation In The 1930s

Francisco E. Balderrama on Fresh Air: America's Forgotten History Of Mexican-American 'Repatriation' In the 1930s, during the Depression, about a million people were forced out of the U.S. across the border into Mexico. It wasn't called deportation. It was euphemistically referred to as repatriation, returning people to their native country. But about 60 percent of the people in the Mexican repatriation drive were actually U.S. citizens of Mexican descent. [more inside]

Donald Trump, possibly upsetting Fox News' role in Republican politics

Following the GOP presidential candidates' debate on Fox, the presidential hopefuls were asked tough questions that could serve to weed out the weaker candidates, but the big news came from Trump lashing out at Fox, and winning. It's no secret that Fox is "the engine that drives the GOP agenda" and bolsters the careers of conservative politicians, including 40% of those in the early August debate, and Trump has appeared as a guest on Fox News programs some 200 times in the last five years. But when Trump gets more attention on the nightly news than his 16 rivals combined, Fox finds itself in an interesting position: if Trump doesn't need Fox News, could other Republicans buck the Fox media machine?

Let the games begin! Er, continue! 17 GOP candidates enter ...

Tonight (Thurs., Aug. 6, 2015) is the first official** televised debate for Republican presidential candidates, to be held in two separate events on Fox. First, there's the happy hour debate at 5 PM EST, with the seven candidates who didn't make the final cut*. At 9 PM EST, the Prime Time debate takes place with the top 10 candidates. You can watch online, if you have cable authentication, but you can also participate through Facebook, who are co-presenting the debates. Otherwise, wait until after the show for clips to start surfacing, or you can follow live-blogging a-plenty (NPR | New York Times | The State | Reason), and you can add your two bits with the Fox News Election HQ 2016 App. [more inside]

Don't worry, you probably won't be secretly murdered if you watch this.

In 1991, a documentary, intended to be the first of a series on celebrity businessmen, was completed. It was screened twice, but its subject prevented its release and it was clear that continuing the series wasn't worth the trouble. So why has that film been released almost a quarter of a century later? Because that same businessman is now running for president. Trump: What's the Deal?

Could Be Awkward

The Washington Post has invited Donald Trump as its guest for the annual White House Correspondents Dinner. WaPo writers Ezra Klein and Dana Milbank are not amused, with the latter pointing out that his paper had recently taken Trump to task for his rampant birtherism. No word yet on how the POTUS might react.

Streetfighter Trump vs. Rosie.

I know we are all tired of Trump vs. Rosie. But, ashamedly, I got kick out of this. Literally. So if you don't like it, maybe someone can create a MeFi vs. The Deej game. (In case you have been under a rock: context.)

Nice rack boost chances for winning miss Universe

Beautiful women show us your boobs. Australian model Erin McNaught’s, now dubbed McNaughty, ”topless scandal” in the Australian magazine Zoo has boosted her chances for winning Miss Universe on Sunday. She is one of the bookmaker’s favorites together with Shakira’s cousin.

Whatever happened to inner beauty?

Since Miss Universe is owned by Donald Trump, who has two things on his mind, money and beautiful girls, his praise for her (after the “topless scandal” and media attention) has made her the favorite she is.

What will the future bring? Will we see a lot more topless scandals, home made porn movies and “worse” from now on to get mr. Trumps and media's attention? Time and Internet will show.
