Withdrawal of AFP reporter’s accreditation seen as political

In its description of all the parties fielding candidates in the election, Brouksy’s offending dispatch referred to Fouad Ali El Himma, founder of the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM), as being “close to the king.”A Moroccan national, Brouksy told Reporters Without Borders he was the “victim of an act of persecution.” He added: “A degree of contextualization is essential to understand these elections. In reality, the dispatch was very balanced. There is nothing in this description that justifies the withdrawal of accreditation.”Reporters Without Borders regards the decision, taken without reference to any court or independent body, as political and as a clear violation of the right of journalists to editorial independence. The communication ministry uses the granting and withdrawal of accreditation as a weapon against journalists, in order to force them to censor themselves.”We call on the Moroccan authorities to rescind this arbitrary decision,” Reporters Without Borders director-general Christophe Deloire said.An AFP dispatch today quoted AFP news director Philippe Massonnet as saying its Rabat bureau had “the agency’s full confidence.” News Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara RSF_en Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists Organisation News NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say April 15, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Trump often flouts the U.S. Constitution

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion The U.S. Constitution has been called into question repeatedly by President Trump’s actions and words. He has attacked the freedom of the press, the independence of the judiciary, obstructed justice, and failed to separate his business from his office. Here are but a but a few examples of presidential abuses of the Constitution: 1) Trump’s constant tweeting, denigrating free press, accusations of fake news, and personal attacks of newsmen and women denies them bringing the truth forward to the citizenry.2) Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order barring all entry from citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations, which has prompted Immigration officials to block legal permanent detainees from legal counsel, in direct violation of an order from Judge Leonie M. Brinkema of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.3) In February, Trump met with FBI Director James Comey a day after National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned amid controversy over his contacts with the Russians. Comey says Trump told him, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.” This is obstruction and manipulation. 4) Trump’s private meetings with other foreign dignitaries and powerful people in his private Mar-a-Lago estate who maybe contributing to his private empire (without transparency) through countless undisclosed financial entanglements and obscure resources. Jackie LangloisBallston LakeMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Police: Schenectady woman tried to take car in Clifton Park hours after arrest, release in prior the…last_img read more

USC bounces back with win over Arizona

first_imgThis season, the USC women’s basketball team has shown an ability to defend its home court by any means necessary.The Women of Troy (13-6, 5-3) have won high-scoring shootouts and defensive battles.The USC Women’s Basketball Team are defending their court by any means necessary. | Daily TrojanOn Thursday, they overcame a slow start to beat Arizona 81-72.The win, coupled with a loss by Arizona State, moved USC back into sole possession of third place in the conference.Arizona (13-6, 4-4) dropped one game back in the conference race with the loss.“After a tough weekend up north, I thought we rebounded and responded extremely well,” said USC coach Michael Cooper.  “I thought we did a good job of playing hard for 40 minutes.”Early on, it looked like the Women of Troy might be suffering a hangover from their blowout loss last weekend to Stanford.USC failed to generate much offense for most of the first half, although the team closed the half strong on a 16-7 run.That spurt helped the Women of Troy take a 31-23 lead into the break, despite Wildcats guard Brooke Jackson banking in a three-pointer at the halftime buzzer.“As long as we keep playing hard and hitting our shots those kind of [runs] happen,” said sophomore forward Christina Marinacci.At halftime, junior guard Briana Gilbreath led the Women of Troy with 10 points and five rebounds.As a team, USC shot just 40 percent from the floor, but held Arizona to 25 percent shooting in a half where the Wildcats had more turnovers (13) than field goals (7).In the second half, both sides rebounded from their early offensive struggles.USC went to freshman forward Cassie Harberts early and often to start the second half.Harberts shot the ball on the Women of Troy’s first four possessions, converting three of those opportunities.“Cassie makes herself very available down there,” Cooper said.  “She moves well and she knows where to be at.”The outburst helped the Women of Troy stake a quick double-digit lead in the half, which they maintained for most of the second half.Arizona did close the gap to 69-63 with three minutes remaining on a steal and breakaway layup by forward Ify Ibekwe, but the outcome was never seriously in doubt after the break.“I think we relaxed a little bit more,” Gilbreath said.  “Things started opening up real wide for us.  We got easy layups, we ran the floor well, we had good [spacing] and the shots were there.”Gilbreath continued to give the Women of Troy a little bit of everything, scoring a team-high 20 points and adding nine rebounds, five assists and two blocks.Marinacci chipped in a season-high 17 points and just missed a double-double of her own with nine rebounds.Up next for the Women of Troy is a home date on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. against Arizona, who played No. 10 UCLA tough on Thursday and sits just one game back in the standings.“Every game from here on out is a big game for us,” Marinacci said.  “Especially playing at home because we want to keep this winning streak going.”last_img read more
