THIS SPEECH BY BEN SASSES IS THE BEST THING TO COME OUT OF DC IN A LONG TIME And if you missed it yesterday, you need to give it the 15 minutes it deserves. Today's hearings have been full of more screeching women trying to protest or something.
CHUCK TODD THINKS FOX NEWS CREATED THE NOTION OF MEDIA BIAS And in this long, rambling diatribe he urges his fellow journalists to "fight back". It is stunning to me in it's complete tone deafness and inability to even CONSIDER that there may BE SOMETHING to the notion of liberal media bias worth considering. For Chuck Todd, the poor little news media, which has just been going about the business of journalism, has been under attack for 50 years! FIFTY YEARS! But nowhere does he EVER consider the possibility that they have brought this on themselves. Poor Chuck, a real journalist would have sought out someone who doesn't share his views in order to give a more fair and balanced article. It reminds me of this quote:
“I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken.”
― Oliver Cromwell, Oliver Cromwell's Letters and Speeches
But I'd have to explain who Christ is, so.....
THIS MARKETING MOVE BY DIA IS FUNNY AND CHEEKY AND I LIKE IT The new walls hiding the construction taking place at DIA's Great Hall are covered with pictures that totally give in to the conspiracy theories that have long swirled around the airport. Check it out, it's worth a moment.
SCIENCE SAYS LIBERAL VOTERS ARE LESS TOLERANT THAN CONSERVATIVE VOTERS And this is SCIENCE, which I've been told is God by many Progressives. Scientists did experiments on liberal and conservative voters when it comes to ideological dissonance. They watched the brain activity via MRI as they told each set of voters that one of "their team" voted with the "other team". Conservatives cared less about such an aisle crossing. Heh.
I DON'T KNOW WHY I STILL FOLLOW THIS STORY, BUT DANG IT'S GETTING WEIRD The Asia Argento case where she's been accused of sexually assaulting a 17 year old boy is getting even stranger. After initially denying a sexual relationship, Argento was forced to admit they DID have sex after text messages leaked, and now she's saying the 17 year old boy assaulted HER. Good grief. This is a slow motion #metoo train wreck I can't not follow.
I LOVE WHEN SCIENTISTS TRY TO EXPLAIN FAITH And then write articles showing that if you're socially awkward, God may be the answer! Like, just FRIEND him, k?
DID NIKE MAKE A HUGE MISTAKE OR CAREFUL CALCULATION? This editorial does a great job of explaining the intersection of politics and business. And it's a bumpy intersection.
HERE IS THE NEW NIKE AD WITH COLIN KAEPERNICK And it's a damn shame they hired Kaepernick because now this commercial will be known for it's controversy instead of it's powerful message and non traditional athletes. It's a good spot.
