@guerrillascholar The moderators here have posted links to the mediabiasfactcheck.com site and the various iterations of the Fontes chart over the years, but this is the first time I've seen a study like this. Thanks for sharing it with us.

A valid question...does political bias of a news source predict the quality of information? Voices on the right claim “liberal bias” in the media, but evidence is tenuous. Liberal critics of conservative news outlets focus more on the accuracy of news than its political slant.

So, I did an experiment:

McConnell, unsurprisingly, is rejecting Joe Manchin's attempt at bipartisanship.

Time to move on. Leave the GOP in the dust.

Originally indicted for two felonies, then pled down to a small fine, doesn't seem like justice served. Not at all.

According to the article. Judge David Mason during Thursday’s hearing asked Mark McCloskey if he acknowledged that his actions put people at risk of personal injury. He replied, “I sure did your honor.”
After the hearing, from the courthouse steps in downtown St. Louis, he said, “I’d do it again.”

Mark McCloskey, announced in May that he was running for a U.S. Senate seat in Missouri.

This belligerent son of a bitch, should never be allowed to hold an office in congress, yet alone ever own a gun.

This is the correct response.

In situations like this, we need the federal government to intervene and provide funds to allow this research to continue. Another pandemic without treatment will cost trillions and who knows how many million lives. Investing a few billion in the next few years could stop it.

White people who threatens innocent people with firearms and brags about it later: Fine ranging between $750-2000, no jail time.

Black person who reaches for wallet in compliance with police order to show ID: Shot dead. (Tragically, I could go on.)

So, yeah.

Exactly if they were black & did that. They'd be dead, instead they get off with a slap on the wrist.

@TonyStark Abbott is winning the race to the bottom for GOP governors today.

@TonyStark It would be great if people could not actually wait until something bad happens to them personally to care about it, but I think this man for speaking up and I hope his message will save others.

It's a good day for people who like other people to be able to have healthcare.

This also is a reminder that the GOP tries and tries to repeal this very popular piece of work, yet their alleged replacement plan has never existed.

GQP trying for a decade to take health insurance away from working people while funneling more and more wealth to billionaires. Enough. The is the law of the land. It's helping people obtain healthcare and saving lives. Get over it, Republicans.

We can't even count on Sotomayor, Breyer, and Kagan to protect LGBTQ+ youth in Philadelphia (which means everywhere) if Catholic Social Services or other religious groups don't want to serve our kids. The entire Third Circuit said CSS couldn't discriminate, CSS appealed to the Supreme Court, and just now the Supreme Court ruled unanimously to send the case back to the Third Circuit. Which is going to say what? We were wrong? It's ok to discriminate now? Freedom of religion in the USA means you don't have to serve LGBTQ+ people, including kids who will be homeless if you don't.

Happy Fucking

There's gotta be some form of kickbacks to Abbot somewhere along the plan. Grifters gonna grift.

@phillyaccent
As usual, the Catholic Church remains totally out of synch with the majority of Americans and will continue to discriminate against LGBTQ people with it’s harmful patriarchal and sexually hypocritical positions. This organization has caused untold suffering. It makes me happy when I see that their numbers fall in this country.

This decision sets a terrible precedent.

Rep. Andrew Clyde must have seen how much attention his Georgia colleague Marjorie Taylor Greene was getting, so he decided to get in on the race to be the worst freshman member of Congress. Here he is, refusing to shake the hand of Capitol Police officer Michael Fanone, who was injured on January 6th, and fellow officer Harry Dunn.

Last night Rachel Maddow mentioned that the 14 members of Congress who voted against making Juneteeth a federal holiday would have that "stick to their shoes forever," so I'll make sure to mention that in conjunction with them. Clyde voted against that, as did Matt Rosendale, representative from Montana, who also features in the story.

Rosendale's chief of staff, James Braid, also snubbed Fanone.

Here's the list of members of Congress who voted against both the Gold Medal for Capitol Police for 1/6 and the federal holiday of Juneteenth:

Massie, Biggs, Rosendale, Norman, Clyde, Roy, Gosar
