California readers, Yves requests that I thank you for responding so quickly to our last-minute request for letters supporting a Public Records Act reform bill (where “PRA” is California-speak for “FOIA,” and the reform is real, not “reform,” i.e. neutering). So thank you! –lambert
The Scroll (J-LS).
Guardian. From the poll results: 0.5 + 1.5 + 19 + 7.5 + 25 + 1 + 19 + 4 + 0.5 + 22 = 100. No undecideds, apparently. Huh?
Australian Financial Review
The New Yorker
The Irish Times. A “coalition” is unlikely ever to exist…
2016 Post Mortem
The American Conservative. “Shattered can be read without gaining any knowledge of the comparative size of staff of Trump versus Hillary, the number of voter s, how voters are approached, fundraising differences, media market strategy, or really any of the quantifiable mechanics of a political operation that might inform why a campaign loses.” I’m 20% of the way through the book; it’s certainly a gripping read! I’ll let you know when I finish….
NY Post. “They have learned nothing, and forgotten nothing.” –Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord (attributed).
New Cold War
Black Agenda Report (MR).
Michael Tracey, CNBC
Reuters. Wake me when the sources aren’t anonymous, there are documents I can see, there’s something beyond yammering about RT and Sputnik News, both of which have the circulation of a smallish blog. And a demonstrable effect on voters.
International Business Times
Bloomberg. The state and local tax break.
Business Insider (DL).
Nicholas Kristoff, NYT. I dislike the “fight back,” “stand up,” and “bullying” tropes because they imply category errors; politics and microaggression are not commensurate. That said, Kristoff does some actual reporting here, interviewing Gene Sharp and Jamila Raqib, among others.
Bloomberg. Thanks, Obama!
