Happened upon this: Jaan Torv died. He was Murdoch's brother-in-law, an Australian DJ who briefly ran Delphi Internet when Rupert bought it (and I even more briefly led its content). There was the first of many Murdoch net disasters. radioinfo.com.au/news/legendary…
I have a comment on Conor’s hypothetical about free expression, and it goes to the First Speaker Problem, where we focus on the rights and interests of whoever talks first to the exclusion of people reacting to it. /1 twitter.com/conor64/status…

During the next few months, please carefully watch public statements by American leaders in politics, business, finance and entertainment for any shift to more accommodationist language about possible threats to our democracy.

I've got a hypothetical to test your basic fucking common sense: figure out how quickly Conor's hypothetical goes completely off the rails. You get one guess and everyone but Conor will get it right. twitter.com/conor64/status…

I should note that the people in the Reforming Journalism Project *left* World magazine when it instituted a political opinion section. Its former editor did say that Trump was unfit for office.
At a time when the religious far right is trying to take over school boards and ban books in local libraries, I suggest this is a would-be trend worth keeping a watchful eye on. 5/
Community Impact, featured in the story atop this thread, is basic local news: New Smoothie King opening! But World magazine, where leaders of the Reforming Journalism Project work, is highly political. wng.org/opinions/look-… + wng.org/special-sectio…
Mind you, I'm not saying religious people are not or should not be in journalism. Mike Orren, quoted in the article above, is a leader in innovative local news. I've sought ways to get students of different perspectives in j-schools. 3/
And here is "a community of Christian journalists seeking to glorify God and empower them to reform local journalism.... We believe Christians can help their cities and neighborhoods by combining pavement-pounding reporting with Biblical objectivity." 2/ reformingjournalism.com
NB: Evangelicals set their sights on local news. "Garrett argues believers should care about the survival of local news because God is the author of truth & shining a light on wrongdoing..." 1/ christianitytoday.com/ct/2022/july-w…
Put a pin in this one, so that, when so-called “realists” talk about giving Putin a “diplomatic off-ramp,” you have yet one more example of Putin flooring it past the exit.

Convicting Bannon of contempt of Congress seems like the understatement of the year. He holds all of our institutions and values in contempt.

Ironic forthcoming book news. The title and cover of Josh Hawley’s next grand opus. The image is a sculpture by Michael Lantz situated outside the FTC Building in DC. It’s in the fascist style of monumental government sculpture from ‘30s Germany and Italy.

Yesterday, #Istanbul agreement on Ukrainian grain exports via Black Sea ports, facilitated by UN and Turkish efforts, was reached. Today, Russian missiles hit port of Odesa. That’s all you need to know about deals with Russia. The world must help Ukraine fight the aggressor.
Retweeted by Jeff Jarvis
And there it is: one day after signing an agreement to allow the export of grain, Russia attacks the port of Odesa. It's not sanctions creating high food prices and hunger. It's Russian cruelty.

Practising at @SalisburyCath ahead of tonight’s recital & this just happened. A tourist spontaneously started singing & so I joined in. I ran downstairs to try and find him straight after but he had already gone. Whoever you were: this made my day ❤️

The Russians got sanctions lifted on their own grain exports and then proceeds to bomb Ukraine's primary grain export port. You people really don't get it, do you. Sanctions must be restored on Russian grain.

Update. Got my first Shingrix shot yesterday. Was dreading the side-effects given what I'd witnessed with someone else. But I'm getting off fairly easy. Arm not burning. No chills. Just meh.
