Pack journalism ruled Washington in those days, with few reporters bothering to question the oppressive consensus in favor of the war. At dinner parties, at watering holes, in greenrooms, most journalists accepted the prevailing line, often acknowledging that it was the safest position. The motto appeared to be: “Better to be wrong along with... - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...

 The police need violence, the camera exposes their addiction. Their unaccountability is institutional.

 Horrifying video shows Michigan black man being beaten, choked and tasered after running a stop sign 
In one of the worst cases of police brutality ever caught on tape, newly released video footage appears to show police officers dragging Floyd Dent, a 57-year-old black man, out of his car, putting him into a chokehold, striking him 16 times in the head and tasering him while he was held down on the ground and being handcuffed. The arrest occurred on Jan. 28 in Inkster, Michigan, but the footage was only just released Wednesday. Dent is now being charged.

This happened basically right down the street from me, this man has no criminal record, and in my opinion didn’t deserve anything more than a warning. Instead he was brutally beaten and had evidence planted in his vehicle by a cop who was previously for the exact same thing. Can he get Justice or nah?

 It’s a bad sign when McDonald’s is doing more to address the rampant overuse of antibiotics on factory farms than the White House — especially when antibiotic resistance is fast becoming a global crisis on par with climate change. The Obama administration fully acknowledges the threat, and livestock’s contribution to it, in its National Action Plan for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria, released Friday. It asserts: “Misuse and over-use of antibiotics in healthcare and food production continue to hasten the development of bacterial drug resistance, leading to loss of efficacy of existing antibiotics.” Yet while it takes some solid steps to address the healthcare problem, critics say it all but abandons any attempts to reform factory farm practices.
The White House’s plan falls way short of what’s needed

DOJ: Civil rights charges filed against University of Mississippi student
Washington Post: The Justice Department said it charged a University of Mississippi student with civil rights crimes for putting a noose on a 
James Meredith statue more than a year ago. 

“This shameful and ignorant act is an insult to all Americans and a violation of our most strongly-held values,” Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. said in a statement Friday.

 On Friday, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared the herbicide glyphosate to be a substance that is “probably carcinogenic.” Glyphosate, more commonly known by its commercial name Roundup, is the primary weed killer used by agriculture giant Monsanto. This news is a problem for them. French news channel Canal+ has recently aired a preview of an upcoming documentary featuring Monsanto lobbyist Dr. Patrick Moore arguing that Roundup is definitelynot cancerous. But Moore is unwilling to back up his claims.

 Ohio Rep. Teresa Fedor stood before the state senate this week and, for the first time, shared her account of being raped in the military and subsequently deciding to have an abortion. Fedor was speaking against a controversial bill — which the House later approved — that would ban abortion as soon as a fetal heartbeat is detectable, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.
And a man in the audience laughed at her.

 Maine Gov. Paul LePage is refusing to apologize for falsely insinuating that Stephen King no longer pays taxes in the state, but he did make the bestselling author an acerbic offer: “Just make me the villain of your next book, and I won’t charge you royalties.” The current dispute between King and the Tea Party Republican stems from LePage’s assertion in a radio address last week that King and a number of other prominent Mainers had abandoned the state because of its income tax, which LePage wishes to repeal.

 In every red state where they’ve spent big, the Koch brothers have defeated Medicaid expansion, the piece of the Affordable Care Act that is optional for states and gives relief to the working poor.  But in Montana — by some measurements the reddest state in the country — the Kochs are hitting the skids.  Their monster political group, Americans for Prosperity, or AFP, has laid an egg.  And Medicaid expansion now has a real chance of happening. 
Even GOP legislators are pissed at AFP’s campaign to deprive the poor and uninsured of healthcare in this red state
