My brain glitched when Melania called me and exclaimed, “Annie Leibovitz SHOT the PORN HOOKER”.

I had to break this down.

Who “SHOT” who and who/what is a “PORN HOOKER”?

Fashion photographer Leibovitz photographed Stormy Daniels for Vogue in 2018.

Julian Assange has reached a plea deal with the U.S., allowing him to go free

Source: NBC News

WASHINGTON — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange plans to plead guilty as part of a plea deal with the U.S. Justice Department that will allow him to go free after spending five years in a British prison, according to court documents.

Assange was charged by criminal information — which typically signifies a plea deal — with conspiracy to obtain and disclose national defense information, the court documents say.

U.S. charges against Assange stem from one of the largest publications of classified information in American history, which took place during the first term of Barack Obama's presidency. Starting in late 2009, according to the government, Assange conspired with Chelsea Manning, a military intelligence analyst, to disclose tens of thousands of activity reports about the war in Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands of reports about the war in Iraq, hundreds of thousands of State Department cables and assessment briefs of Guantanamo Bay detainees using his WikiLeaks website.

Court documents revealing Assange's plea deal were filed Monday evening in the U.S. District Court for the Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean. Assange was expected to make an appearance in that court and to be sentenced to 62 months, with credit for time served in British prison, meaning he would be free to return to Australia, where he was born.

🚨🚨Netanyahu walks back from the Israeli hostage deal proposal that was approved by the war cabinet and laid out in President Biden's speech and says he is ready for "a partial deal that will bring some of the hostages home" and allows to then resume the war

Netanyahu is going to let many of the hostages die to continue a war that will never lead to the total eradication of Hamas. Its a completely indefensible position, and the US should not let the fate of American hostages remain in his hands.

This is a New York Times story about Trump and the Republicans smearing Biden with video fakery.

This is a New York Times story about Trump and the Republicans smearing Biden with video fakery.
Yet the headline not only fails to name Trump and Republicans as the cheap-shot artists but casts Biden as struggling to cope “as he battles age doubts.”
Why is NYT doing this?


Cultivated naïveté. It treats politics as it has no history, the Republicans as if they’re children with no agency and the Democrats as if they’re only responsible adults in Washington. And it looks at it all with childlike wonder.
