The most corrupt president in at least 100 years demands that Congress stop investigating his corruption, or else he'll refuse to even discuss legislation with the party that controls the House of Representatives. America today.
If you want to understand why the general public increasingly considers the tech industry to be verging on evil, if not already there, here's an example. https://twitter.com/Matt_Cagle/status/1131222404355612672

Venal, not stupid. In "liberal" San Francisco, yet. The city's supervisors and mayor are culpable in this attack on freedom of expression. https://twitter.com/trevortimm/status/1131212462701842432

Supposedly liberal San Francisco politicians can't bring themselves to denounce the blatantly illegal raid on a journalist's home. The mayor has been, at best, wishy-washy on the matter. https://twitter.com/hknightsf/status/1130679715616837632
Another example of how op-ed editors routinely serve as loudspeakers for liars -- and yet another reason why the public has lost trust in journalism. https://twitter.com/DrJenGunter/status/1130838903928180737

Conrad Black's fraud was blatant. Trump's pardon -- and the Wall Street Journal's standard editorial page dishonesty -- can't change that. https://thebulwark.com/the-wall-street-journals-innocence-project-the-case-of-conrad-black/
Journalists and scholars face stark choice in response to the Beijing dictatorship's orders to forget history, as @limlouisa and @IlariaMariaSala explain. They can be activists for truth, or do stenography for liars. "Neutrality" is not an option. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/may/19/china-wants-us-to-forget-the-horrors-of-tiananmen-as-it-rewrites-its-history?CMP=share_btn_fb&fbclid=IwAR0JYPEc_P_TUiONYaZX1ffJoOG4yCpqjVsGkI_0mEvluEDPD0-MMOg-9Lg

The @DAAUSA ("Your Ad Choices") is such a joke: "Opt-Out Temporarily Unavailable" was the repeated result when I used the web "consumer choice tool". Vast majority came back this way.

Next time a wealthy person tells you that government doesn't encourage and protect tax evasion, point to this. https://twitter.com/RichardRubinDC/status/1130490234259628033
As @EFF explains, the tech platforms' terms of service are enforced unevenly (guaranteed since the terms are so amorphous in the first place) and unfairly. And you want a few giant companies to be the editors of the Internet? Please. https://www.eff.org/tossedout
It's no surprise that FCC head Pai, whose job is to carry water for Big Telecom, endorses the terrible-for-competition merger of T-Mobile and Sprint. The only surprise is that anyone thought this was up in the air in the first place. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/20/business/dealbook/sprint-tmobile-merger.html

Whew, it had been a while since the @nytimes did one of its "Trump cultists still love Trump" stories, set (of course) in the Rust Belt.
Romania under the dictator Ceaușescu was a demonstration of what happens when the state nationalizes women's reproductive systems by banning abortion. What happened was poisonous in almost every way. https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/alabama-georgia-abortion-laws-like-communist-romania-by-maria-bucur-and-kristen-r-ghodsee-2019-05

After 25 years as a loyal listener — with Morning Edition as my alarm and first news source — I had to quit. This one sealed it: "There are a lot of people in the United States who don't see Donald Trump is a habitual liar and who are are big fans of his." https://www.npr.org/2018/07/13/628694715/masha-gessen-on-trump-putin-meeting https://twitter.com/DaileyInk/status/1129762603041984512
