Today in Fox News disinformation impact, my over-80 mom told me that testing was going well and “everyone is getting tested.” Had to send her this: How testing failures allowed coronavirus to sweep the U.S. (via POLITICO for iOS)

Pro tip: Kissing up to your boss on Twitter is super lame

And to all you aggrieved folks who thought this Gillette ad was too much bad-men-shaming, after we just saw it come to life with those awful kids and their fetid smirking harassing that elderly man on the Mall: Go fuck yourselves.

If you had to pick one person who has been the largest menace in the modern world, spreading hate and disinformation that has disastrous results everywhere he goes, Rupert Murdoch or, as I like to call him, Uncle Satan, would top the list: via @nytimes
