The Rundown - Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - UK under attack; Bill Gertz on cyber warfare and crime; Fake news; Could this take down CU chancellor?

What we know so far based on British police reports: A single terrorist detonated an explosive near an exit of an Ariana Grande concert, killing 22 (plus the attacker) and wounding 59, some critically. The police have detained another person as they try to determine whether the bomber worked alone.

 

Prime Minister Teresa May gave some comments Tuesday morning

 

Miss Grande sent out a tweet to her fans and the world:

 

Of course this is only one kind of warfare we experience in the 21st century. There is also the ongoing threat of cyber war as well as cyber crime, such as the recent "WannaCry" worldwide ransomware attack.

At 6:36 AM, we'll talk with Bill Gertz, editor of the Washington Free Beacon and author of the very interesting book "iWar: War and Peace in the Information Age."

A friend e-mailed me this link, asking if the story bothers me:

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/334437-saudi-arabia-uae-pledge-100-million-to-women-entrepreneurs-fund

I said, yes, it bothers me, because the way it's written, especially the use of the word "built" in the first paragraph is exactly the sort of "fake news" that President Trump and his supporters complain about. 

Here's a more honest version of the same story, just so you can compare:

It all plays into the non-stop negative coverage of this president as recent reported by a Harvard study (which validates my claim, simply based on watching TV, that CNN is the most negative of all):

This appears to be a remarkable failure by CU Chancellor Phil DeStefano. I wonder if it threatens his job:
