Predictably, this was officially ruled a suicide. Energy was wasted on conspiracy theories that should have been dedicated to mental health and how an inefficient and callous system doesn’t see fit to provide sufficient help for people like Robert Fuller

a 4 year old shot in the head with a stray bullet in St. Louis on the 4th of July has died:

"In fact, just 91 of the approximately 11,000 people sprung from Rikers Island under the initiative — or 0.8 percent — have been found to be anywhere near a shooting this year, the figures show. And more than half of those 91 are not accused of any wrongdoing...."

Fascinating read. Hassids in Brooklyn may very well have herd immunity.

I know it’s popular to express resentment at having to educate or do the work for ignorant people, and it’s definitely a wasted effort on social media, but I think that doing this kind of ‘the work’ is incredibly valuable.

No we need there to be physical pain

“But Jews are a powerful group in America, they’re successful across many industries in the US including government.” So, funny thing about the Weimar Republic...

Today I interviewed 87-year-old Milan Hucko in Slovakia. I wouldn’t be alive without him. When he was 14, he and his family decided to hide my grandfather, a stranger, during the Holocaust.

Watched reporter @letsgomathias  get roughed up and led away, possibly arrested, by police with his press pass clearly dangling on his neck.

Max Blumenthal decides this guy who tells him he is a CNN reporter is an undercover cop acting a provocateur. 23k RT’s. Complete disinformation. CNN head of comms: those are my colleagues, I’ve worked with them for years.

This happened so fast most people missed it: yesterday GOP affiliates accused Biden of harassing a 14-year-old at an event in 2008 and it was of course amplified by Glenn Greenwald, Ryan Grim etc. later in the day it gets revealed Biden wasn’t actually at the event 😂.

just when you thought his administration couldn’t possibly fuck every little thing up, turns out the Trump White House bears some responsibility for romaine lettuce killing people:

Hi @clairedon  @cleoabram  & @netflix , I'd love an explanation bc it seems like you ripped me off and stole my pitch for Explained. I sent you this episode treatment in 2018 called The Next Pandemic. You passed, and now I see you did an episode a in Nov called "The Next Pandemic"

No idea why CNN and @andersoncooper  have Sean Penn on as an expert on military responses to pandemics (it’s insanely irresponsible) but a friend just sent me this clip of him being completely incoherent

I’ve covered unrest around the world. It is extremely dangerous when accusations of infiltrators and undercover and provocateurs start flying. People get killed. If you’re a journalist lobbing those accusations, you better have some damn good proof.

There was a massive, beautiful peaceful protest for most of the night. But quite clear as the night wore on that there were groups of people who came prepared to loot. They were not even close to the majority.

Massive crowd on 5hth ave. Lawless. Windows being smashed. Cameraman with me for threatened.
