The NewsTrust format and idea are interesting for the possibility of a democratically influenced news source. It provides another channel for getting news and views out to the public, a channel without a visible filter of the corporate press.

Krauthammer is toxic. He says a few things that make sense, and then advocates for a world lockdown that includes derogatory categorizations of the president. Krauthammer is toxic.

Perhaps the personalization of the effects of bad drug laws will give Biden and the country an opportunity to abolish mandatory sentences for drug use. Biden does have a potential for growing on issues when faced with reality beyond public opinion polls.

Hananel provides about the right amount of detail on this ridiculously partisan split decision by the supreme court conservatives, without explicitly saying it was an extreme partisan activist and bad decision by the Republican appointees, or explicitly say they acted to violate the laws on poll taxes and evidenced blatant racism.

Halloween and elections come at about the same time, making it seem acceptable for republicans to hide behind false masks. The difference is that on Halloween the masks are scary, at election time the people who feel they have to hide behind a mask are scary. Too much anonymous money poured into clueless dissembling commercials, in order to sucker citizens to vote against their interests is a sign of a lost democracy.
