VIDEO OF THE DAY: Fox News hosts caught lying red-handed live on air

In news that should shock exactly no one, right-wing TV talkers and their Republican allies were caught telling lie after lie after lie for days on end about homeless US veterans being displaced from New York hotels to accommodate sUpEr ScArY asylum seekers.

It’s time to end Ivy League legacy admissions for GOOD

Exclusion U: Legacy admissions are nothing but institutionalized nepotism, allowing the spoiled scions of the rich and famous to coast their way through life while more deserving, hard-working students are left out in the cold — and to make matters worse, these institutions receive huge sums of taxpayer dollars.

Maryland reporter slammed for “both sides” tweet on man who carries AR-15 at school bus stop
WBAL-TV journalist Tolly Taylor was slammed for soft-pedaling his story about a local MAGA man who routinely carries an AR-15-style rifle near a school bus stop in Severn, Maryland, terrifying children on their way to and from school.

Rights advocates blast FBI for abusing surveillance tool 278,000+ times
