  • The Atrocity Archives by Charles Stross is very good. I don't know why I didn't try The Laundry Files series before now.

  • Captain Beefheart singing "Willie the Pimp" for Frank Zappa sounds like Tom Waits.

  • Michael Savage is looking like Mr. Miyagi.
  • Instincts of the Herd in Peace and War by Wilfred Trotter: I read Instincts of the Herd in Peace and War by Wilfred Trotter because it was heavily referenced in Crystalizing Public Opinion by Edward Bernays. Instincts of the Herd isn't a report of …

  • The cops are saying the crash isn't accidental. "Wheeeeeeee"?

  • I know what confirmation bias is. Of course you take notice if the signs go in both directions.

  • Seems like a good joke to me.
  • @fenomas said: Aside: if you're looking for stuff like bias in news articles, you really shouldn't just look for stuff like word choice, that merely includes the possibility that your premise is true, you should be looking for stuff that exclu…

  • @fenomas said: @Bill said: You say that the statement, "The mainstream media is overwhelmingly liberal biased" is a falsifiable statement. I agree. I don't see how you can believe it, though, unless you accept my assertion that it'…

  • I'm constantly questioning my own beliefs. The farther out on a limb I'm willing to go about an issue correlates pretty well with how much I've made sure that I'm not being nuts. You say that the statement, "The mainstream media is overwhelmingly l…

  • Clme, I don't know much about radio shows. I haven't listened to the radio, other than incidentally, in a long time--well over ten years. I do know that some conservative talk shows found a big radio audience. The explanation that I've read is that…

  • There are things that are difficult to measure, but are still obviously true. If you dismiss analysis of writing as being inherently non-objective, we have nothing left to discuss.

  • More on apparent media bias: You keep asking me to convince you of things that are utterly obvious to me, and I'm sure I've discussed this before. You need to look at things like presentation order and word choice. What information is put at the to…

  • @fenomas said: When I see each latest Trump idiocy, I sometimes wonder if Bill is still into him, and if so how he rationalizes it. The above quote was the start of this discussion. I have now told you several times over the last year-and-a-…

  • Thank you. I consider it an acknowledgement that the other side isn't free from bias. However, the two sides are nowhere near equal in size. The press is overwhelmingly liberal or progressive. By the way, your premise is incorrect. I'm not biased t…

  • Take a look at how the BBC and Yahoo present essentially the same facts. They are both presented in an anti-Trump way, but one is spun much more negatively than the other. Edit: This is relevant, and spun the other way. Edit: Today's Pat Buchanan …

  • We having members of the press acting overtly partisan. That is new. They have been partisan for decades, at least, but this is the first time they haven't bothered being subtle about it. By the way, the war widow thing was spun up by the press as …

  • Hey, Clem, she just had a good rant that answered your question. She started with Twitch. To paraphrase, she was showing cleavage on Twitch and realized that Chaturbate was more honest. If she was going to be an exhibitionist, she was going to be a …
  • If you look at the way the press has been spinning things, it's clearly partisan. The bias used to be subtle most of the time, but with Trump the press is openly hostile. And by "Trump" I also mean his advisors, appointees, and adult family. I star…

  • Fox News is one news provider. Let us say, for the sake of discussion, that they are total Republican shills. I honestly have no idea whether or not they are. Now, whatever the position of Fox News, I can go to Google News and see the headlines col…

  • I never said Fox wasn't influential. I said it didn't set the agenda. The New York Times does, (and has for generations).

  • It was a close election. There are fair arguments that lots of different things swung the election including Hillary not being black, the terrorist attacks on cops just before the election, and the Black Lives Matter riots.

  • If they are inclined to terrorism, a few white nationalists can do a lot of damage. In terms of political power, though, they are a small force. The New York Times is the newspaper read by all the other journalists, including television journalists…

  • I don't have any idea. Wednesday I was looking for pretty naked girls, and I found her on Chaturbate holding forth on the reasons for and uses of religion. I checked a few minutes ago, and she was talking about the morality of bombing an entire coun…
