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.

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.

Reuters fact checks a meme, poorly

On Friday, Reuters news service's fact-checking unit took on a meme going around on social media that lists five "facts" [scare quotes via Reuters] about Sen. Joe Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris.
