  1. Facebook whistleblower exposes a dark reality: Right wing disinformation is popular — and profitable | Salon.com WWW.SALON.COM Lies are profitable on social media because millions want to be radicalized
  2. This may be the least surprising headline of the year. I deleted my Facebook back in February, because it was quite clear it had become a right-wing boomer platform. I have no doubt it's only gotten worse since then.

  9. BREAKING: The Supreme Court just ruled 5-4 that any such law is unconstitutional.
  10. At this point, couldn't we just tell white Republicans that the vaccine is made from liberal tears and solve the pandemic in a few days?
  11. According to the briefing today, 500 were evacuated yesterday, and they are now in contact with the remaining 1,000.
