A sane district court judge in San Francisco of all places has tossed out Michael Newdow's latest lawsuit claiming that "In God We Trust" on legal tender is, well, illegal.

Newdow claimed that by using coins and currency bearing the phrase, he is forced to carry religious dogma, proselytise and evangelise for monotheism.

You know, when the clerk at the 7-Eleven gives me change I always thought something more sinister was going on. 7-Eleven clerks are far more dangerous than those nuts at the airport asking for "Pear pimples for hairy fishnuts."

🧵Please indulge me more on this topic: Yesterday's Bloomberg article misrepresenting Thune's comments on entitlement reform is part of a broader issue:
Most media coverage of Social Security, Medicare & unsustainable debt has long been narrative-driven and, yes, dishonest. (1/)

More broken accountability at the International Fact-Checking Network (@factchecknet) and the @Poynter Institute.

The IFCN allows people to register complaints about the its stable of "verified" signatories to its code of principles. @Google and @YouTube $hould pay attention.
