How illegal is this obvious blackmail, btw?


From what I read earlier this morning (and I'm too lazy to find the article right now), it's potentially very illegal.

This thread sheds some light into why AMI tried to blackmail Bezos, and why this is so bad for them:

sounds like a healthy workplace environment.



it's too bad, because the post-gazette has a great reputation, but it's being run into the ground by john robinson block, who's both an awful racist and now apparently an abusive drunk.

It feels like you could replace the name of the newspaper and the name of the [expletive] and repeat this a thousand times around the world.

It's hard to tell, I'm sure, but this CNN hiring decision is really bugging me. Talking about who is providing us with the news is important.

Clarence Thomas doesn't even try to hide how he wants to take down what remaind of the free press:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/19/us/p ... e=Homepage

WASHINGTON — Justice Clarence Thomas on Tuesday called for the Supreme Court to reconsider New York Times v. Sullivan, the landmark 1964 ruling interpreting the First Amendment to make it hard for public officials to prevail in libel suits.

He said the decision had no basis in the Constitution as it was understood by the people who drafted and ratified it.

“New York Times and the court’s decisions extending it were policy-driven decisions masquerading as constitutional law,” Justice Thomas wrote.


In Justice Thomas’s view, the First Amendment did nothing to limit the authority of states to protect the reputations of their citizens and leaders as they saw fit. When the First Amendment was ratified, he wrote, many states made it quite easy to sue for libel in civil actions and to prosecute libel as a crime. That was, he wrote, as it should be.

“We did not begin meddling in this area until 1964, nearly 175 years after the First Amendment was ratified,” Justice Thomas wrote of the Sullivan decision. “The states are perfectly capable of striking an acceptable balance between encouraging robust public discourse and providing a meaningful remedy for reputational harm.”

I mean, just that Clarence Thomas is a horsefeathering obnoxious originalist is so patently absurd in and of itself.

HuffPo fires their recently hired, insanely racist social media editor; only missed her insane racism because they didn't bother to try the complicated task of....checking her social media:

Though I'm sure she'll land on her feet with TD Ameritrade.
