"The most reasonable conclusion from the available scientific evidence is that community mask mandates have—at most—a small effect on the course of the pandemic."

That debate was the most viscerally unpleasant two hours of television I can ever recall having watched.

Why is it okay to run this, but not okay to run an op-ed by Tom Cotton?

It's a huge problem that many in the mainstream media and pundit class (i.e. the people attacking Maggie Haberman for daring to share NY Post's Hunter Biden scoop) now think its their job to suppress information they don't want the public to read.

Genuine question: Now that we know the computer repairman does exist, what is the theory that the information somehow came from the Russians? Is the repairman a paid actor, in this scenario?

Did Biden just suggest that cops should try shooting people in the leg????????

I admit I find this whole trend of people denouncing their Trump administration parents/uncles/etc—and then getting star treatment by the media—to be really gross.

Abolishing grades in order to be "antiracist," is a bit like no longer collecting data on homelessness in order to be anti-poverty. (Or, to use a timely example, complaining that the problem with more covid testing is you find more covid cases.)

Will Twitter block access to the Borat / Giuliani story, which contains personal information obtained in an underhanded way and without Giuliani's permission?

I am concerned how rapidly the word “disinformation” has come to mean “information I wish the public didn’t have.”

Wolf Blitzer asks why the Philadelphia officers didn’t choose to “shoot to injure” instead of shooting to kill. The answer is because cops aren’t expert marksmen: None are trained to “shoot to injure” because it’s impossible to do consistently.
