Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

MSM 'til the day they die: Morning after Casey Anthony murder acquittal, NY Times gives column one to illegal aliens from Mexico -who AREN'T here!

Above, Wednesday morning's New York Times was a picture of a newspaper that couldn't help itself from engaging in the worst (dumbest) sort of faux high-minded editorial judgment.

Where we set our scene: the Panera Bread location in Hallandale Beach, south of The Duo condo towers, right next to the Diplomat Country Club.
(Yes, as in the great Diplomat LAC battle of last year, which we won.)

Mainstream Media 'til the day they die...
So am I the only person in the country that noticed that the morning after the Casey Anthony murder acquittal, the N.Y. Times gives column one over to a story about illegal aliens from Mexico -who AREN'T even HERE?

It's like the Times has a Black fraternity insignia burned into their shoulders like... -well, you know who you are out there- and can't see that their loyalty to the group over the larger society as a whole must have some logical limits.
But no...
Mainstream Media 'til the day they die...

Let this be a self-evident lesson to those of you who have scoffed in the past when well-known conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and others have tweaked the MSM's patronizing and self-absorbed missing-the-trees-for-the-forest/liberal nature by saying what the prospective headlines might be in the N.Y. Times following various catastrophes.

Something along the lines of, well, say,
"Species-killer asteroid crashes into North Atlantic creating deadly tsunamis; poor and minorities will be especially hard-hit say experts."

This is something that American conservatives have been saying with various variations since William Buckley's "Firing Line" TV show was a staple of PBS and one of the very few overtly conservative outlets in American media.

The N.Y. Times article in column one that I have referenced above has one title in print and another one online.

The print version that you see for yourself above reads:
Better Lives for Mexicans Cut Allure of Going North
Shifts in Jobs and Education Are Cited in Decline of Illegal Traffic to U.S.

Online, it's...

Changes in Mexico Slow Illegal Immigration to U.S.

In case you were wondering, yes, I AM going to be highlighting the Miami Herald's perfectly awful coverage of the Casey Anthony trial in Orlando and how poorly-served South Florida was served by the largest newspaper in the country's fourth largest state.

In particular, the Herald's very curious (questionable) choices of where to run the stories they deigned to run -when they ran any- and almost always without any photos of any kind.

Given the abysmal daily coverage thru the forty-something day trial, you'd almost think that
a.) Miami wasn't in the same state as Orlando, and that,
b.) the Herald's management just wished the Casey Anthony story would go away.

Yes, just more of what I have been complaining about in this space for years with regard to the self-evident and dramatic decline of Herald management and reporting in far-too-many areas.

That essay of mine will be here before you know it, and as I always remind you here, nothing quite says neglect like evidence, especially photographic proof of that neglect.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
