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 am still left wondering why their ethics are more dishonest.

Interesting economics, but the authors buy into the propaganda that Putin instigated the Ukraine nastiness. The reality was that U.S. neocons overreached and supported a coup by fascists right on the Russian border, thereby seriously threatening Russian national interests in driving Putin to act.

Ah, the financial reasons to spend so much campaign money to buy toadies in Congress, to steal pensions and social security money for gamblers, and take a cut for yourself. And Christie for president!!!??? This is theft and corruption.

the decision to invest state pension money in alternative investments of questionable value seems to have been driven less by concern for the welfare of future pensioners ... More »

Good reading for those christians whose creed includes a delusion that all christians should all and always vote for the republican party of racism, war, and further impoverishing the poor.

Unfortunately, the president’s compassionate actions are creating a political firestorm among some Republicans in Washington. Their anger and antipathy toward the White ... More »

We are reaping the benefits of those members of the House of Reprehensibles who were elected with the benefit of generous funding from the oil, coal, and chemical industries. May the flying spaghetti monster forgive us for failing to use our noodles in science and politics.

This is an interesting piece by Greenwald. It is almost like he has gone Colbert on us. He provides a rather thorough profile of Hillary policies and politics, but it seems like damning with feigned praise.

Anybody but Hillary, unless the anybody is as bad as any of the last N candidates from the regressive party of NO.

The full threat to secular scientific health care from the Catholic heirarchy is not disclosed here. Prohibitions include no vasectomies, no tubal ligations, no information on abortion options, no abortions to save a mother's life, no compassionate choices for end of life. Interns will not be trained in such procedures. Medical personnel hired by the catholic "which" doctors will exclude anybody with ethical objections to catholic doctrine. Poor and emergent care patients cannot ... More »
