Hello My name is emily rashford, Am from united kingdom, fulham. I am very happy for posting on this blog on how a great spell caster helped me in bringing back the love of my life. I know there are lots of women like me out there who have done so much to have back their Husband, I am here to tell you all to search no further because the answer is right here. I sincerely believe if there are up to five spell casters like Dr okorom this world would be a better place, I have seen people complaining on how fake spell casters promised to help them but couldn't but with Dr okorom I tell you, your problem is solved already. My Husband and I had been apart for 3 YEARS and I couldn't bear without living without him, I have tried everything to have him back but nothing was working until I saw numerous testimonies about a spell caster called Dr okorom and how great his work is. I contacted him via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) immediately and follow the step that he ask and in the next 48 hours my lover called me and was eager for my forgiveness and that he wished nothing more than to have me in his arms forever. I filled so much joy and happiness that I found Dr okorom, I hope you all here will find this testimony of mine and get your husband back in just 48 hours thanks... contact his email: email@example.com or his website http://dr-okoromwebs.com/: or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about dr okorom
I arrived at Madison Park at 10 am and it was jammed packed.
Just a quick correction - attendees had gathered well before 10am at 9th and Madison. I arrived with my group at 10am and there were already several thousand people there.
AND the Chronicle's coverage of the Women's March in the Bay Area is dismal. Despite over >200k having marched locally, the cover photo is from Washington DC. And the piece about the SF march had minimal real information - e.g. turnout numbers.
I particularly like the sign with the great drawing of Trump that said, "I'm not a real President, But I play one on TV." What great Oakland artist created that? I want one.
OPD told CBS 5 later on that it was closer to 85K. It felt that big today, moving like molasses.
Wonderful to see this. Thank you all !
I, my family and friends have all vowed to boycott the SF Chronicle until the fascist Editor in Cheif has been fired.
In other news, the Chronicle has banned its entire newsroom staff from going to restaurants, so that no one will think the paper's food critic is biased.
John Q: Please note that reporters did not feed Hillary debate questions (current DNC head Donna Brazile advised Hillary that a debate in Flint, Michigan, would include a question about Flint's water crisis -- Whoa! If true), but Sean Hannity did vouch for Donald Trump's otherwise invisilble opposition to the Iraq invasion. Meanwhile, Hillary's use of a wrong email server got more coverage than all of Donald Trump's scandals, conflicts of interest, defrauding of Trump U. students, and sexual assault combined.
How many of those covered by the Chronicle's ban ever, under any circumstances, have even the tiniest bit to do with covering national politics? Three, maybe? I'm not real concerned about Mick LaSalle's politics.
Perhaps it would be helpful for people to read the position of the Ethics Committee of the Society of Professional Journalists.
I would think they do not come up with their best thinking regarding ethical issues by reacting to the heat of the moment (or our disgusting new leader) but that they create guidance on ethical issues based on careful and thorough information, thinking and discussion.
I would think that posters here may benefit from doing some homework before forming their own opinions.
See here: http://www.spj.org/ethics-papers-politics.…
"The SPJ Ethics Committee gets a significant number of questions about whether journalists should engage in political activity. The simplest answer is No. Dont do it. Dont get involved. Dont contribute money, dont work in a campaign, dont lobby, and especially, dont run for office yourself."
They go into very good detail here on what is OK and what is not OK. A news reporter (with extremely significant requirements of objectivity) have much more firm boundaries than a political commentator, as an example.
I am cancelling my subscription to the Chronicle.
Ms Cooper should immediately resign her position.
As a former award-winning national news reporter who practiced that profession for 14 years, followed by 20 years of practice as a licensed California attorney, I am appalled at Ms. Cooper's attempt to strip her employees of their rights under our Constitution.
Journalists do not give up their rights as citizens in exchange for their press cards.
No journalistic ethics I've ever encountered as a professional journalist or an attorney have even suggested that journalists be barred from civic participation.
I am not just outraged at Ms. Cooper's decision to force her employees to choose between their jobs and their duties as citizens to participate in our democracy, I am also amazed that she assumes her newspaper's readers would expect that Chronicle employees never dare show their face at any type of political gathering, and that doing so should cost them their livelihood.
Ms. Cooper should resign immediately, because she has placed her newspaper's credibility in question. Journalists deserve every single Constitutional right the rest of us enjoy. I simply can no longer trust that Ms. Cooper is not also attempting to censor her employees in ways that the rest of us will never hear about.
At a time where journalists are being attacked by everyone from Ms. Cooper to the White House, we need managing editors who encourage their employees to be good citizens, and who trust their audience to understand that excellence in journalism and participation in our nation's democracy are not mutually exclusive.

Monitor Warshaw has a financial incentive never to find OPD in compliance. The judge could set a six-month limit on the contract for any one monitor - but he doesn't. Quan, then Schaaf, and the councilmembers never sought this remedy. None of them really cares about the super-high level of robberies and burglaries in Oakland. This latest dustup shows that City Hall does not know how to wage a tough fight, for there is no doubt that judge Henderson has a deep and abiding hatred of OPD, matched by his disdain for the victims of crime in Oakland.
Ms. Cooper sure has a lot of power that she is misusing as a woman in a leadership position. This is not the time for taking away people's rights Ms. Cooper, it's never a good time. We have all forgiven you for having a paper that is written at 8th grade level, we cannot ignore your willingness to infringe on a women's right to assemble. What's next, will you not allow them to go to clinics or take birth control, or vote? You don't have my support or readership.
I am employed by a national news organization and the restrictions on participating in political events are clear, and, in my opinion, entirely appropriate.
If you're a major news organization, and a news reporter is participating in the news, and taking a partisan side in a battle, how are people supposed to believe that his or her reporting is striving to be fair, rather than striving to persuade?
For example, if a Fox News reporter is photographed holding a Pro Life sign at a rally, would you dismiss his reporting on abortion as propaganda? Fuck yes you would. And rightly so. Because he's not a reporter anymore. He's now a activist. And you assume he's starting out with a narrative that he will make selected facts fit.
And if a SF Chronicle reporter were to be photographed holding a sign with a picture of Trump that says, in huge letters, "What. A Dick," how much easier would it be for the new administration, and its followers, to dismiss everything the Chronicle publishes as biased?
News organizations often make a distinction between reporters and commentators or oped writers. The latter have opinions, and use those opinions in their comments, and are identified as people with opinions. Nothing wrong with that. If you want to consume opinion, there's opinion to be consumed. Buyer beware.
But reporters are expected to strive for fairness and accuracy, to the best of their ability. To report without fear or favor. And the appearance of fairness is a necessary component in asking readers to trust that you are trying to do just that.
Blatant denial to rights of freedom of assembly, association, speech.

I and my journalist and writer friends are Marching, in part, to demonstrate opposition to the muzzling of the press by the incoming Trump Administration. The thought of fellow journalists being barred from attending a hugely historic demonstration against an administration who wants to silence the media is appalling! And just a bit suspicious in its own right. if I worked at the chronicle, I would call in sick,(maybe wear a mask) and attend, or feel bad about it the rest of my life. I am shocked and saddened by this dictatorial move on the part of this editor.
hold on to your radios everyone's, the way journalism compromise tells me it may be all we have left. Radio stations like Pacifica Radio from NJ and KPFA radio out of Berkley (both online), and online and Free Speech TV shows like Democracy Now are not corporately sponsored in any way and are the only places we can get unbiased reporting. Thank God they exist
Insight is one thing. OPINION is another completely. If it is an opinion/ editorial piece, sure, both label it AS such and include some personal opinions. But if it is presented as "straight" reporting (just the facts: who, where, when, how), leave the bias out or at least offer full disclosure of it. This new trend of media attempting to influence minds from divergent fields is WHY folks can't/won't trust Mainstream Media anymore (e.g.- reporters feeding Hillary debate questions in advance but not to her opponents). The Chronicle isn't presented as an "Alternative" newspaper, so extremists should stop acting put out that the paper's publisher doesn't want her reporters compromising journalistic ethics. There are more than enough news sources in this day & age so that we don't have to gripe that people are somehow not able to hear folks' opinions because straight news is upholding journalistic ethics (as it should). When one major news source takes on the role of Big Brother by telling us what to think instead of giving us a chance to formulate our own opinions based upon unvarnished facts, then you have BIG Gov't at it's worst right around the corner. Do even the Leftists want THAT(??)
