Journalism faces a crisis worldwide – we might be entering a new dark age
“might be”? – hell that ships done sailed!
Journalism has become the corporatists’ whip.
Oh, wait is RACHEL on?!
“Almost anyone can use the worldwide web to be a media outlet, so how will we differentiate between truth, myth and lies?”
The skeptic in me finds this amusing. I read this as: “It’s like just anyone can print bullshit now! That’s OUR job!” Though some are worse than others, it’s true. The Guardian usually does a lot better than our domestic rags.
We desperately need a return to TRUTH.
New Regency closes in on Edgar Wright’s Grasshoper Jungle adaptation
sounds fun now that I read the wikki and know the story.
Memorize the THREE top rules for survival. They are:
Number One – Get out of the cities!
Number Two – Get out of the cities!
Number Three – Get out of the cities!
If one is in a city, I think the best thing is to kiss your ass goodbye.
Northern central MA around the Connecticut River looks best for me. I could make a run for that. But, yeah NYC………….
Man, it feels like the early 60’s.
Seriously, we would not have a chance.
feels like ronnies-imperial-reign again where we thought he was going to get the world murdered “fighting” the “evil-empire”.
Partial evacuation possibly underway in North Korean capital
Kim Jong Un is reported to have ordered the evacuation of over 600,000 people from North Korea’s capital city, Pyongyang.
Experts note that the evacuation will most likely be conducted due to extremely strained tensions in relations with the US.
North Korea has an extensive system of shelters, but it’s not clear where the evacuated people are being sent.
Meanwhile, reports that China was cancelling flight service to Pyongyang appears to be incorrect, though some individual flights have been dropped because ticket sales to the North Korean capital are, understandably, low.
Earlier this week, thousands marched in Pyongyang.
The drums of war are beating.
Louder and louder, trying to drown out his misdeeds. Good luck, brother.
I’m off to Lowell. syl
Have fun be safe.
The last surviving person from 1800’s is dead—that’s 3 centuries that she lived in.
What a life. What was she eating?
Lots of eggs.

Evening folks, howz stuff?
Did you read about the old bird?

Why one Republican voted to kill privacy rules: “Nobody has to use the Internet” https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/04/dont-like-privacy-violations-dont-use-the-internet-gop-lawmaker-says/
“A Republican lawmaker who voted to eliminate Internet privacy rules said, “Nobody’s got to use the Internet” when asked why ISPs should be able to use and share their customers’ Web browsing history for advertising purposes.
“Facebook is not comparable to an ISP. I do not have to go on Facebook,” the town hall meeting attendee said. But when it comes to Internet service providers, the person said, “I have one choice. I don’t have to go on Google. My ISP provider is different than those providers.”
That’s when Sensenbrenner said, “Nobody’s got to use the Internet.” He praised ISPs for “invest[ing] an awful lot of money in having almost universal service now.” He then said, “I don’t think it’s my job to tell you that you cannot get advertising for your information being sold. My job, I think, is to tell you that you have the opportunity to do it, and then you take it upon yourself to make the choice.”
People “ought to have more choices rather than fewer choices with the government controlling our everyday lives,” he concluded, before moving on to the next question.”
love this comment:
“My kids’s homework assignments are given and turned in on the Internet. When I applied for a job, all the applications and forms were done on the Internet.
What planet is he living on?”
the reich-wing bubble is a separate universe.
Hiya Darth..He’s a bought-and-paid-for fat pig tool–his district is just north of Lyin'(R)yan’s and is even whiter….8-)
TBH I think he really believes this. That’s the scary part. Reminds me of something
““The internet is not a big truck!”
long past over-due time for the dinosaurs to become extinct.
one can hope anyway
Then we should have access to his browsing history.
Are we sure he even has one? I get the “my grandkids set up that newfangled email thingy” vibe from this guy. Wats up?
Yeah but maybe he has his own private sever 😀 not much chilling, went out for a bit then it was pizza night, I had buffalo chicken.
Wings? Mmm.. You tried that smoothie yet? Flax seeds will give you oily skin BTW. But I might have overdone it a bit lately. “You know what this cranberry juice needs? Flax seeds!”
No it was boneless chicken chunks, yum! I haven’t tried it yet now it really is stating to sound good 😛
OK–I quit!..Sunny & windy & pooped..Are we raining down freedom, yet?….8-)
Oh, snap–they’re going to get their asses whooped!
HA!–Our youngest rules and nobody else cares….8-)
Scar! Brother help me!
Possibly a creative way to save face?
North Korea attempts but fails to launch missile: South Korea http://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-usa-missile-idUSKBN17H0NL
“North Korea attempted to launch a missile on Sunday near Sinpo, on its east coast, but it is believed to have failed, South Korea’s military said.
The attempted missile launch comes a day after the North held a military parade in its capital marking the birth anniversary of the state founder where what appeared to be new ballistic missiles were displayed.
“The North attempted to launch an unidentified missile from near the Sinpo region this morning but it is suspected to have failed,” the South’s Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.
There were no further details, and the office said it was analyzing the launch.”
From MSNBC: “was not an ICBM”
That’s very telling if true.
No comment from Trump so far. Nada. Nothing. Interesting. Both players get to look like the tough guy here. No nuke test, but non ICBM “failure” anyway. How is it possible that Trump isn’t tweeting about this? One wonders if this was China’s idea? They wrote the book after all.
DT wrote a book too you know.
The same as it ever was
I was hoping we could drop a few more MOAB bombs—-all those millions used to kill 100 dooshbags —way better than funding PBS or meals on wheels to the needy.
Buck up, camper. There’s always someone else to bomb.
That will cause a rip in theSpace/Time continuum.
The future is now!
I knew one of those existed. Not telling which one.
Yup, that blender.
We need to cut more funding so he can play golf and spend our tax money.
You’d get lost in the Conflict of Interest wing….8-)
such a subtle building too
“The president’s 2020 campaign has already spent close to $500,000 on Trump’s businesses, from golf resorts to Trump Tower rent, according to new campaign finance filings…
$274,000 was paid in rent to Trump Tower in Manhattan where the re-election operation is headquartered, according to a tally of the reported figures totted up by the Wall Street Journal. An additional $59,000 was spent on stays at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, and $14,000 went for food and rent to the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas…
“The filings also reveal the salaries of Trump’s reelection workers, including 27-year-old John Pence, nephew of Vice President Mike Pence, who was paid $40,000 for the first three months of the year.”
Remember a simpler time when they would just give a company they owned stock in a no bid contract to rebuild a country they just bombed? Good times.
“Tug” on the rope?….8-)
I think I speak for every sane man when I say f%^$ that!
Just another way cats enslave humans.
Seriously, who exactly is being trained here?
They were G-ds in ancient Egyptian times and now once more on you tube.
If only we could somehow harness this power!
Well then energy crisis solved, NEXT!
Ok who watched the 10 commandments?
