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.

I'm not a big fan of Diane Feinstein, but she is right on when she says there is no money or apparatus to monitor nor press charges for any violations of any of the labor, human rights, environmental, nor food purity provisions that have been put in the secret text. Those empty words are there to promote passage of the bill, not to protect ordinary human beings. Devolution is upon us: Reagan trickle down economics has become a rationale for trickling down goodness onto slaves on ... More »

Disney is responsible for indoctrinating kids with racist views, and seems clueless about it. I will not say they are evil, but presume they are blinded by the white.

The story of the princess of North Sudan cannot be told without racism and colonialism, and no amount of sentimental nonsense keeps that from being the case, whether in the ... More »

The mainstream press favors Clinton because she is a prochoice republican, and the mainstream press is owned by rich white republicans, so only will report on republican.

too much of Sanders’ coverage today views him solely through the prism of Hillary Clinton. It’s all about how his campaign might affect her strategy and her ... More »

And if GMOs are safe, why not require long term scientific studies to evaluate the claims. The Bush legacy of putting the foxes in charge of the hen house at the FDA, and just giving blanket ignorant classification of all GMOs as GRASS (generally recognized as safe) is one of the notable violations of trust foisted upon us by the Bush family. This is one of the fallouts of big money in politics.

An alarming bill before Congress aims to keep it that way. The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2014 (H.R. 4432) will remove any requirements for manufacturers to ... More »
