WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump’s unrelenting attacks on the free press have created a “Trump effect” promoting antagonism against journalists in the U.S. and abroad, the media watchdog and advocacy group Reporters Without Borders said Wednesday in its annual World Press Freedom Index. The group, also known as Reporters Sans Frontières, attributed the downgrade to Trump’s incendiary anti-press rhetoric and his attempts to curtail media access. The rankings cite an overall decline in global press freedom, with a “climate of hatred” for the press that is “openly encouraged by political leaders.” The report said this is occurring in authoritarian countries that regularly rank at the bottom, including Egypt, Syria, Turkey, Russia, China and North Korea.

North Korea's underground nuclear test site has partially collapsed following a massive bomb blast last year, making it unusable, Chinese seismologists have concluded. The North's leader Kim Jong Un declared last week that his regime would halt nuclear and long-range missile tests and shut down its nuclear site at Punggye-ri under Mount Mantap in the country's northeast. The offer came days before his summit this Friday with the South's President Moon Jae-in, which is scheduled to be followed by a summit with US President Donald Trump.
It’s no mystery that Harley-Davidson Motorcycles has been, shall we say, struggling over the last three or so years. As the MoCo continues seeking novel approaches to attract new riders, Harley’s higher-ups are looking to revamp an old long-term sales strategy in hopes of increasing the amount of high-dollar bikes being sold. This comes in the form of a new trade-in program that aims to reel customers in with less expensive offerings then push for an upgrade once Harley-Davidson’s proverbial hooks are in good and deep.
France’s Emmanuel Macron left Washington looking like a superstar — whether or not he changed President Donald Trump’s mind on staying in Syria, how to contain Iran or anything at all. Macron upped his global status by standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the American president amid all the pageantry of a state visit. After blow-by-blow coverage of Macron’s Washington trip for three days, the French media turned quickly to domestic issues upon his return Thursday — damaging train strikes, crime-ridden housing projects, lagging school results.

By Margarita Antidze and Hasmik Mkrtchyan YEREVAN (Reuters) - Armenia's acting prime minister on Wednesday suggested calling a parliamentary election as tens of thousands staged a new protest in the capital against the ruling elite. Although the protests have been peaceful, the upheaval has threatened to destabilize Armenia, an ally of Russia, in a volatile region riven by its decades-long, low-level conflict with neighboring Azerbaijan. Moscow has two military bases in the ex-Soviet republic, and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Armenian President Armen Sarkissian by phone on Wednesday.
A third federal judge ruled on Tuesday against the Trump administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In September, President Donald Trump canceled the Obama-era DACA program, which shields undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as youths from deportation. “Neither the meager legal reasoning nor the assessment of litigation risk provided by DHS to support its rescission decision is sufficient to sustain termination of the DACA program,” Bates wrote in the opinion.
