Are "Tweets" News?

A year or two ago I noticed that CNN was reporting "tweets" on some of their news shows. It seemed isolated and I considered it a sort of "man on the internet" type of reporting. In the past few months I've seen tweets reported on [more]

Re: When They Don't Know Who You Are

There are so many issues that this case highlights. One parallel is the Trayvon Martin shooting--again, and unarmed black kid gets killed by someone with a gun. Instead of questioning the one with the gun, the narrative gets twisted to pointing [more]

Interesting that both parties seem to have a common enemy. It's similar to the alien attack theory in that when an alien species attacks earth, all governments and people will join together to save the earth from the invaders. Except in this case the [more]

Re: John Oliver of HBO on Income Inequality
