The Circus’ Creator’s Advice for Beleaguered White House Press Corps: ‘Continue Showing UpInside the Greatest Political Show on Earth, said reporters should continue to attend White House press briefings, even if they increasingly feel like a high-wire act.“I think the North Star in all these decisions for individual journalists or the press corps as a whole is, what is the public interest?” Halperin told TheWrap.[...] Read: HBO Sets Miniseries Based on 2016 Presidential ElectionThings got so bad, a clearly irritated Jim Acosta, CNN’s White House correspondent, vented on the air that Press Secretary Sean Spicer was getting to a point “where he’s kind of useless.”“There could come a time that what’s in the public interest is to change course with how to get access or get honest answers,” Halperin said.Halperin spoke to TheWrap about what it’s like covering Trump’s White House, whether or not the Russia scandal is this generation’s Watergate, and the one person he’s still hoping to book on his show.There were some questions about using the same format of government and the country’s reaction to it without predictable events that had area of propulsion, would it still work?[...] you have one dominant story, the circus surrounding Donald Trump and the people’s reaction to it, and if you’re not covering that story, you are the B-story at best.Washington seems to have all the elements of a well-crafted reality show, with villains and secondary characters and bombastic unscripted moments.Standard reality shows do not stand a chance against the uber reality of the Trump Administration.In general, I still would love to interview [Vladimir] Putin, now that things are piling up and the U.S. government believes he played a role in the election.Read original story ‘The Circus’ Creator’s Advice for Beleaguered White House Press Corps: ‘Continue Showing Up’ At TheWrap

- Drought in High Plains the worst some farmers have ever seen
By BLAKE NICHOLSON, Associated Press - Saturday Jul 15, 2017
BEULAH, N.D. (AP) — Drought in North Dakota is laying waste to fields of normally bountiful food and hay crops and searing pastures that typically would be home to multitudes of grazing cattle.The Martins have sold off about one-third of their cattle because the grass in their pastures is brown and brittle and they've already started dipping into winter hay reserves.More than one-third of North Dakota's staple spring wheat crop and nearly three-fourths of the state's pasture and rangelands are rated in poor or very poor condition, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.USDA has designated numerous counties in the three states as natural disasters, paving the way for emergency loans for producers.The Agriculture Department has authorized other aid, including forage disaster payments and emergency haying and grazing of land enrolled in conservation and wetland programs.Neither does crop insurance, which pays only a portion of what a farmer would get by selling a typical crop, said Goehring, who in addition to heading the state Agriculture Department is a farmer who has worked in the insurance industry.The state has taken several steps, including adding more money to its Drought Disaster Livestock Water Supply cost-share program and relaxing commercial driving restrictions to help with the transport of livestock, water and hay.
