Time to question Rupert Murdoch?



As a way to get Billy Barr...

Also the little G Gordon Liddy wanna be (Sean Hannity)...

I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!

MJF nails this one. Trump likely would have skated on the Mueller stuff. The racist rapist-in-chief can't help himself though...

More on the Hearings

Katie Porter questions Mark Zuckerberg (she is excellent, he is not)

AOC makes Zuckerberg look like the total dipshit you think he is...

Nightly Business Report spins Zuckerberg Hearing

Mark Zuckerberg must have phoned in a nice donation during the last PBS fund drive. That's the only explanation I have for how NBR spun the hearings in favor of MZ, Facebook, and the GOP. It was not just bad but laughably bad. Fox News and Sinclair Broadcasting would have blushed to put such an obvious spin on it.

I knew something was up when the segment starts with Maxine Waters adjusting her dentures. What the hell? Why show that? Then they showed a couple of out of context questions from Democrats to make it look like whining. Moving on to the only Republican they show saying something like, don't we need to stay on the cutting edge of technology? Of course everyone agrees with that.

Oh well, judge for yourself. Maybe I'm just too sensitive to the media bending over backwards to normalize these clowns...

Jagmeet Singh

Congrats to Jagmeet Singh...
Jagmeet Singh Jimmy Dhaliwal[2] MP (born January 2, 1979), professionally known as Jagmeet Singh (/dʒəɡˈmiːt sɪŋ/ jəg-MEET SING), is a Canadian lawyer and politician serving as leader of the New Democratic Party since 2017 and as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the riding of Burnaby South since 2019...

After a year as a toddler living with his grandparents in India, Singh spent his early childhood in St. John's and Grand Falls-Windsor, both in Newfoundland and Labrador, before relocating with his family to Windsor, Ontario.[2][18] Singh has publicly discussed suffering sexual abuse as a child, as well as having a father who was alcoholic and abusive.[19]

From Grade 6 to 12, Singh attended Detroit Country Day School in Beverly Hills, Michigan.[20] Singh went on to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Western Ontario in 2001 and a Bachelor of Laws degree from York University's Osgoode Hall Law School in 2005. He was called to the Bar of the Law Society of Upper Canada in 2006.[21]

Singh has two younger siblings, brother Gurratan and sister Manjot, who were both born during the family's time in Newfoundland.[18] Gurratan, who is also a lawyer and politician, has been described as Jagmeet's "secret weapon".[22][23] Gurratan Singh was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in the 2018 Ontario election, representing the riding of Brampton East.[24]

Singh worked as a criminal defence lawyer in the Greater Toronto Area before entering politics, first at the law firm Pinkofskys, then at his own practice, Singh Law, which he established with Gurratan.[2][25] During his time as a lawyer he offered free legal rights seminars across Ontario and provided pro bono legal counsel for people and community organizations in need. In a Toronto Star article published January 9, 2012, Singh stated that his background in criminal defence contributed to his decision to enter politics, particularly his work advocating for the protection of rights entrenched in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms...

PJ O'Rourke

There's a good line from the OP that I thought at the time could apply to people like PJ O'Rourke...
Maher has built up an impressive following and continues to espouse snarky elitist hot takes...

So now in the past week CNN has hired Sean Duffy...

Emergence

It's struggling in the ratings but I really like Emergence.

Interesting subject, good writing and acting, can't wait to see where it's going.

Wikileaks?


Kudos to ProPublica but what happened to Wikileaks?

I've been waiting for Wikileaks to break these stories. Maybe I'm missing something?

Thank goodness for whistle blowers. Is there a Martha Barr?
