Zoom jerk

"New Yorker Suspends Jeffrey Toobin for Masturbating on Zoom Call" (Wagner) (Sailer - I never realized Gessen was a dead ringer for Groucho Marx).  To be fair, jerking off is the Stanislavski method of playing the Supreme Court.  He was just getting in character.  He has been an absolute pox on American 'journalism' since the OJ trial, and I'd be glad to see him go, but he is on the SJW side of history, so they'll find an excuse for him.

Whenever leftists suggest that corporations might hold duties to those other than shareholders, they are immediately told that any such thinking would be a serious breach of the fiduciary duty of directors and officers.  In fact, shareholders could sue directors and officers for paying attention to the interests of anybody other than shareholders.  So . . . if the share price of Twitter or Facebook should drop by any amount, wouldn't there be an excellent chance for litigation against the officers and directors of these companies for ignoring the rights of shareholders in taking a partisan political stance on the New York Post stories on the Biden Crime Family?  There would be hell to pay if, say, GM announced it was the company that only sold cars to Democrats.  Why aren't Twitter and Facebook punished in the courts for taking a gratuitous partisan political position?
