at this year’s white house correspondents dinner, president donald trump was notably absent. his presence, though, was heavily felt, which we know because mediaite’s own travis irvine asked about him on the red carpet and got some thought-provoking answers.from jake tapper to al sharpton to andrea mitchell, irvine pressed a variety of influencers about whether trump has been good or bad for the media. is that sort of dichotomy a little simplistic? sure! but trump himself is regularly lampooned for doing the same thing.so, is trump good for the media or what? nbc news’s mitchell chose not to narrow her scope and instead told irvine that the real question is whether trump will be good for our country overall. sharpton, on the other hand, was more direct, saying, “he will be ...

for several months, churchill has been favourite for this. he was the best two-year-old around in these parts, winning all starts apart from his debut, including two group ones, and his lazy way of running makes it hard to quantify how good he may be.aidan o'brien tends not to get wrapped up in hype before races, yet he recently described how churchill was doing "unbelievably well". he goes to the track without a prep but such has been the norm for ballydoyle's guineas fancies for many years now.churchill will likely be ridden in a prominent position and if he can travel within himself, it is difficult to see anything having the stamina to beat him. barney roy has only won a group three, with the french raider al wukair feared more. eminent also comes into it, but churchill makes most appe...

sherri simpson, who had unsuccessfully objected to the settlement agreement that was to resolve the class action claims against trump university, is now appealing a district court ruling to the ninth circuit court of appeals.back in march, simpson, one of the alleged victims of fraud,  claimed that the settlement didn’t give her an opportunity to opt out and file her own individual lawsuit against trump university. at the time, this caused concern because if the objection was granted, it could have unraveled the entire deal. one of the reasons why president donald trump agreed to settle the case was to avoid further litigation, so if new cases were permitted, trump theoretically could have pulled out of the agreement.as it turns out, judge gonzalo curiel ruled against simpson, and i...
