The Hill (ES).
Macrobusiness. New Zealand, Canada, Australia… What is it with the Five Eyes, these days?
AFP. Football hooligans.

McClatchy. In an election year, when they have no power to pass legislation. Wow.
Salon. One would think that the parallel between human sale in the form of slavery and human rental in the form of waged labor would have occurred to the (liberal) author, but no.
tressie mc. Today’s must read. Note especially that Trump has poor advance work, and the writer’s description of the demographics of the attendees.
WaPo. “[Trump’s] standing has also worsened among two key voting groups: independents and white Americans who do not have a four-year college degree.” The story doesn’t say why.
AP. Trump loses another news cycle. And there are X number until the election.
Jonathan Chait, New York Magazine. Interesting and if true, Trump and Clinton’s favorables should start to converge (one way or the other).
NYT. Rhetorical forms seem to be having a moment; here, apophasis (NC, 2011-07-24).
Reuters. John Yoo sighting!
NYT. “But the biggest reason that Mr. Sanders won’t shape the next progressive agenda stems from a little-noticed aspect of his campaign: His policy proposals were consistently out of step with the ideas that have been emerging from progressive think tanks like Demos or the Center for American Progress or championed by his own congressional colleagues.”
WSJ. No duh!
Ray McGovern, Consortium News
The Nation. (Yves interviews Teachout, when Teachout was running for Governor.)
Quartz. I still remember the hagiography on Holmes from The New Yorker. Weren’t they supposed to have a fact-checking department?
