Happy birthday, Mr. President! Media give Trump the gift of bad journalism that makes him look good

Monday 07:01 GMT

Or there’s this tweet by CNBC Editor at Large John Harwood, commenting on a Trump tweet: “Justice IG report found no evidence that Strzok’s disdain for Trump or any other improper consideration affected conduct of Clinton email investigation,” Harwood wrote.

The fallout from the G-7 summit in Canada, the summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Singapore, battles on immigration, and the report by the Justice Department inspector general of FBI conduct in the Hillary Clinton email investigation were just a few of the big stories of the week.

The Restless Wave by John McCain and Mark Salter review – a blindly patriotic, militarised memoir

Monday 07:01 GMT

‘He’s dying anyway”: that was a White House aide’s vile excuse for dismissing recent criticism from John McCain, the doughty senator who has become the conscience of the Republican party.

McCain comes from a military clan – he is the son and grandson of admirals and the father of a Marine; a naval pilot in the Vietnam war, he was imprisoned and intermittently tortured for six years in a Hanoi prison after his plane was shot down – and he venerates the hero of Ernest Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls, who, wounded and in agony, stoically remains at his post in the hope of eliminating another enemy before he dies.

Monday 07:01 GMT

"The truth is that in spite of this welcome extra investment we will face hard choices and we need an honest debate about what the NHS can and cannot do," he said.

Ian Dalton, head of NHS Improvement, a regulator in charge of monitoring performance in the health service, said: "This settlement is good news for the NHS, those who use it and those who work for it. And that comes after ministers agreed in autumn 2017 to top that up by another £2.8bn.

How Peppa Pig became a video nightmare for children

Monday 07:01 GMT

Parents reported that their children were encountering knock-off editions of their favourite cartoon characters in situations of violence and death: Peppa Pig drinking bleach, or Mickey Mouse being run over by a car.

Previously happy and well-adjusted children became frightened of the dark, prone to fits of crying, or displayed violent behaviour and talked about self-harm – all classic symptoms of abuse.

Why Dutch teenagers are among the happiest in the world

Monday 07:01 GMT

The HBSC data supports this: 86% of Dutch teenagers say their classmates are kind and helpful, putting the country top of the tables at 13 and 15.

Researchers compiling this year’s Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study, a four-yearly analysis on 48 countries, say Dutch children’s happiness scores are up again. It contrasts starkly with the picture in countries like Britain, where depression and anxiety are on the rise among teenagers, and the US, where the number of young people taking their own lives has risen sharply.

The wife of an Ecuadorean man detained by immigration officials after delivering pizza to an Army facility in New York is calling on the government to release him, saying his absence "feels like a death in the family."

Villavicencio was turned over to ICE after delivering pizza to the U.S. Army facility Fort Hamilton in New York City on June 1. The immigration agency has said he was granted voluntary departure in 2010 but did not leave, and then that became a final order for removal and he was considered an ICE fugitive.

Why does Trump hate on Jeff Bezos: is it about power or money?

Monday 06:05 GMT

Jeff Bezos is the world’s richest man and he’s thinking five or 10 years ahead, so he’s got bigger problems than Donald Trump to think about.”

D’Antonio, the Trump biographer, said: “As far as I know, Bezos is hands-off with the Washington Post and that is something that Trump can’t understand. The fact that this person would have a commitment to a free press and, as a publisher, honour the separation of editorial and business interests is anathema to Trump.
