It won the Pulitzer. It's a graphic novel. About the Holocaust. And about the writer's parents, one who survived Auschwitz, the other who killed herself. A Tennessee school board voted 10-0 to ban "Maus" tnholler.com/2022/01/mcminn-…

Just got a NRSC ad in my Facebook feed claiming Democrats are trying to indoctrinate children with Critical Race Theory. 1) Why the hell did Facebook think I was the audience for that crap? 2) Why the hell am I still on Facebook?

They're pretty good. I miss Pat Summerall and John Madden though.

Congratulations! (Btw, how does this stuff work? Why is a WB-produced show on Apple+ rather than HBO Max? Wouldn't HBO get right of first refusal or something? Same goes for Shameless I suppose)

You mean as, say, the “enemies of the people?” After which a gunman entered a newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland and murdered five people? I have a vague memory of that happening, yes.
Have we ever seen a President attack and malign the free press like Joe Biden has??

The previous president, rather than singling out one dumb SOB as a dumb SOB, declared journalists as a whole to be “enemies of the people” after which a gunman entered a newsroom and shot five journalists to death. Also, senator, gender notwithstanding, you are one dumb SOB.
Joe Biden is attacking a free and fair press. Looking forward to the outrage from @maddow and @JoyAnnReid. #Doocy

Man bites dog is always a better lede, alas.
Most recent data from NYC continues to show that those who were unvaccinated were far more likely to get infected during Omicron surge than vaccinated. Unfortunately, the tenor of much of media coverage really suggested everyone was getting infected at relatively equal rates.

1) As a matter of empiricism, Peter Doocy is a dumb sonofabitch. Whether Biden should have said so or not, this is evidenced. 2) The press as a whole are not “enemies of the people” and no man should have walked into a newsroom and killed five people after a president said so.

No, asshole, you cannot cite a singular press failure to contain or oppose the actual policies of those actually in charge and conclude that reporters do what they do in purposes opposition to the populace. That is lazy, dumb and dangerous hyperbole. Now fuck right off.

Anyone who remembers the buildup to the Iraq War could be excused for thinking that the press (not every individual journalist, but the mainstream American media as a whole) is an enemy of the people.

I preferred that athletes who are not demonstrably selfish, ignorant assholes enjoy the victory in a sporting contest. Crazy, no?
