Masks, the CDC, and Incompetent Government

Earlier today the Centers for Disease Control released new guidelines on where masks should be used. As has been the norm since the beginning of this pandemic, the United States government, first under Donald Trump and now under Joe Biden, has done a less than stellar job of communicating with the public. The mask flyer […]

Our Horrible Media: Hacked Materials Edition

I'm strongly considering changing the name of this website, and its focus, to the things our horrible media does. It's not like there's a dearth of material—and you'd see more of it if I had more time and I could get people to pay me for it. (Substack?) Late last week an organization called Distributed […]

Redefine Everything

I'm a big fan of words. I like putting them in order to convey meaning and describe concepts. I don't like the current attempts to redefine everything as part of a wider effort to delegitimize one side or change the terms of the political debate.

Our Horrible Media: Georgia edition

It's been a horrible few months for the American media, and there's no sign of it improving. I reviewed Tim Groseclose's essential tome, "Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind," shortly after it was released nearly 10 years ago, and the media's slanting of stories has only gotten worse. A quick scroll […]

My First Twitter Ban (or: Why Context Matters)

Twitter, by its very nature, is not conducive to rational discussion of nuanced viewpoints, which is probably why I'll lose my appeal of my Twitter ban and be forced to delete my Tweet. (Which I might've done anyway since there's a misspelling and no edit button.) For the record, all tweets in this post will […]
