The Fourth Estate
The Daily News won a judgement in NYC that could have direct and immediate effect on the White House's propensity to mess with the access of various out of favor news organizations.

Glenn Beck/The Blaze has suspended Tomi Lahren for a week or possibly indefinitely.

Apparently over her mentioning that she's pro-choice and sees the issue as one of government overreach.

So much for the tolerant left.

Sorry, find it impossible to have any sympathy for Tomi Lahren

The New York Times' twitter debut, 10 years ago.



I've seen suggestions that NYT should always start social media posts with "Word up!" It is I, the Gray Lady

Guys, a guy I went to high school with and debated in Model Congress/UN was on Samantha Bee's show!

He founded a local paper in New Brunswick after graduating from Rutgers and has become a known muckracker and gadfly. He's been arrested at least twice now on bullshit charges that got dismissed. The cops in particular fucking hate him, and a lot of the local politicians are super rude to him when he shows up to public meetings to ask questions. A few months ago, someone sent him a water meter that suggested people at the water authority were rigging shit, and the cops were all over him trying to get the story quiet.

Anyway, here you go!
