Fake Weather?

There is an interesting article in the Chicago Tribune about the right-wing media. You know how the right (including Donald Trump) have been claiming that climate change is “fake news”. Now that the US is being battered by severe storms, fed by increased ocean temperatures, they might have some ‘splaining” to do, but they are […]

Bought and Paid For Journalism

Never heard of Sinclair Broadcast Group? Well you should know them, because they very well could be filling your head with far-right-wing propaganda. And if Donald Trump has his way, it will get far worse. Believe me.

Sexism at Google?

The Economist just wrote a wonderful “detailed, ringing rebuttal” to the former Google employee who circulated a sexist message internally, but which leaked out and caused a big kerfuffle (and got him fired). Even if you are tired of that story, this is definitely worth a read. It is both serious, while also dripping with […]

This Modern Reality

© Tom Tomorrow Don’t you wish the Trump presidency was really just a computer simulation? Here’s evidence that it might be.

100 WTFs

Rolling Stone has put together a list of 100 WTF moments during the first 100 days of the Trump presidency. I guess they had to, because it is difficult to find 100 achievements of Donald Trump, a president that they point out has accomplished less than William Henry Harrison, who died 31 days into his […]

The Noise Machine

© Ruben Bolling I don’t know if it is intentional or just a byproduct of his need for constant attention, but Donald Trump has been extremely successful at manipulating the 24 hour news cycle. Not only dominating the day’s conversation, but making us forget about everything from yesterday and before. Most frighteningly, hiding (with the […]

Winners!

© Jim Morin Donald Trump promised that we would win so much we would get tired of winning. Well, I’m not tired yet, but Trump has been the indirect cause of several wins. The 2017 Pulitzer prizes were announced on Monday, and there were multiple awards for negative coverage of Trump, including cartoonist Jim Morin […]
