Brain damage

"The Unrelenting Pundit-Led Effort to Delegitimize All Negative Reporting About Hillary Clinton".  This is bizarre, as Greenwald offers up his own wild anti-Trump bias half-way through.  So I guess the media has an obligation to reveal just what a crook Hillary is but not so much that Trump wins.  The huge media shift that Greenwald notices was about getting Trump the nomination as Trump was thought to be Hillary's easiest opponent, and this is the famous scheme that Bill and Donald may have cooked up on the golf course.  It remains unclear whether the chip on Trump's shoulder has changed his plans to lose.

It is tellingly unheard of to read anything interesting on 9/11 these days, but this is good:  "Recovery Workers Reportedly Found the Black Boxes From the Planes That Hit the World Trade Center on 9/11, but Authorities Covered This Up".

"Is Putin a Lousy Dancer?" (Shamir).

"How the Christian Right's Sex Hangups Turn Zika Into a Bigger Crisis".  "Welcome To Post-Coup Brazil, Where Jews and “Christian” Zionists Run Wild".  "US beekeepers fear for livelihoods as anti-Zika toxin kills 2.5m bees".  "Is it right to launch mass chemical warfare on Zika mosquitoes?".  "‘Neurotoxin’: Floridians Freaked Out by Zika Mosquito Poison Spraying".  It's not like Floridians need any more brain damage.

Comment at Naked Capitalism by JimTan on Theranos on how things work for the 0.1%.

"Leftists leaving Israel?"

Who would have thought?:  "Labour leadership challenger Owen Smith opposes BDS".

"UK Jewish lobby calls on Labour to expel Livingstone".

"New York Times and the New McCarthyism" (Parry).  This has reached the point where it can only be described as treason.
