Those times I go to the USA, and check into the hotel, there's usually a TV playing something, Fox or CNN is most common, both have their flavour of what the ever living fuck.

Memorable moments:
Fox: Cheesy CGI of eagles morphing into combat planes and shooting missiles.
CNN: Cheesy CGI of a limo ramming into a cross, followed by the headline: Is Mort Downey Satan?

Clearly, I ain't seen nuffin' yet.

Nicaragua just signed the Paris Climate Accords, meaning only two countries remain that refuse to sign. One is a violent, divided country where guns are easily accessible and the dictator in charge thrives on hate and discord. The other is Syria.

Just a heads up to go take a fucking look at what the FCC is doing today.

They've got net neutrality set up to be repealed the day before Thanksgiving, IIRC, but today, as a surprise, they repealed both the requirements that broadcasters maintain local stations AND the rule that prohibits the same company from owning multiple stations in the same markets.

And for 'broadcasters,' just go ahead and read Sinclair Media.

This is horrific.

Wow in crazy assholish vindictive nature the heavily GOP donating owner of dnainfo and the Gothamist (as well as the other sister 'ist' reporting sites) has not just shut them down after DNAinfo and Gothamist voted to unionize but has razzed the site, every article is gone, any link pointing to an article now goes to a front page letter from the CEO about journalism not being profitable.
Billionaire Owner Shuts down Dnainfo and Gothamist.

British couple forced to cancel dream wedding on Greek island after sex act photo leads to ban on foreigners | The Independent

Quote:
... another British couple, Carly and Matthew Lunn, posed for a picture showing them simulating oral sex while she was still in her wedding dress.

The image went viral after they posted it on Facebook and it came to the attention of Bishop Kyrillos, the island's most senior clergyman, who promptly banned forbidden foreigners from marrying at the church.
Those crazy Brits.
