The Nevada News Bureau, which has provided a reliable source of news outside of the state's newspapers, will close this Friday. Very sad news for the industry here as NNB broke stories and kept other reporters on their toes. Here's the announcement from Publisher Elizabeth Crum: Readers, Colleagues, Media Partners & Friends: It is with deep appreciation for your help, encouragement, readership and support over the past three years that I am tasked with announcing the suspension of...
UPDATED BELOW WITH REID'S SENATE FLOOR REMARKS As some of his colleagues called for gun control measures, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will have to reconcile his past fealty to gun rights interests in the state with growing demands for action. Reid is expected to speak today on the Senate floor about guns amid a rising volume of voices calling for action, whatever it might be, to prevent similiar tragedies, a nearly impossible task. But as the president lamented last night in Newtown...
Welcome to the end-of-the-year edition of The Weekly Report. The next one comes next year, folks, but I wanted to leave you with, as I used to do with the old Ralston Report, my nominees for the top political people of 2012. Everyone uses different criteria for these types of lists. Mine are simple: You have to have had power, had the willingness to use it and affected events in Nevada and, perhaps, beyond. If so, the mention of the person’s name should elicit respect and, better yet, fear....
In 2003, despite being deemed an ethics transgressor by a state tribunal and despite federal authorities sniffing around him, Michael McDonald still had a friend in the Culinary union. "Michael has been a strong supporter of unions and working families," Culinary political director Glen Arnodo told the Review-Journal shortly before McDonald lost his re-election bid. Nine years later, having metamorphosed into the chairman of the state Republican Party, McDonald still has a friend in the...
When you cover politics for a long time, you meet all kinds of activists, some more memorable than others. I will never forget Doris Femenella, one of the kindest, sweetest people I had the good frotune to meet and married to her firebrand of a husband, Bob. I met them when I first started covering politics in Nevada 26 years ago, and we immediately took a liking to each other. Doris was not a great source -- it wasn't that kind of relationship. We were friends. But Doris was a great person,...
Good morning, everyone. I have heard and seen a lot of strange things covering Nevada politics, but none stranger than this: "Michael McDonald here today representing the Culinary union." What? Did I hear that right? The chairman of the state Republican Party representing the Democratic Party's potent ally before the Las Vegas Planning Commission? I rubbed my eyes, but he was still there in the video (I was tipped) from Tuesday evening, arguing on behalf of the union that helped defeat his...
Good morning, everyone. Upon what meat doth our Caesar feed that he doth grow so great? Et tu, “newspaper”? When the Las Vegas Review-Journal can produce what amounts to a thumbsucking editorial that ends up with an endorsement of Gov. Brian Sandoval’s Medicaid expansion decision, you know just how good he is. Is it hypnosis? That smile? The new RJ, which loves moderates and wayward pundits, too? I still can’t get over this “newspaper” headline, though, on the issue. Really? A politician said...
Good morning, everyone. I feel as if Lewis Carroll might still be writing books and is at work on one about Nevada. Just imagine a trip down the rabbit hole to find Nevada’s most prominent Republican elected official and most prominent Republican private citizen acting like----Democrats. Gov. Brian Sandoval, who went let the sun go down on taxes, now has expanded Medicaid and set up an Obamacare health exchange. And Sheldon Adelson is more socially liberal than most Democrats I know. What’s...
