Ass, Bad, and Facebook: Katie Halper O @kthalps Will Alexandria @Ocasio2018 Ocasio- Cortez be able to recover from this hit by a life-long Republican, GOP "strategist" who convinced John McCain to run with Sarah Palin? Steve Schmidt attacks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for 'dishonest progressivism' - and says it's bad as Trumpism' FS DAVID EDWARDS 27 JUN 2018 AT 10:50 ET Flipboard Facebook Twitter in Linkedin SAVE UP TO 60% THIS MONTH ONLY Pocket Compass Mo... R CHAOS Steve Schmidt appears on MSNBC (screen grab) 6/27/18, 4:52 PM odinsblog: So this is one of the people MSNBC loves to elevate, pass the mic to, and basically parade around as an example of a “good” Republican? The guy who helped the GOP unleash Sarah Palin on American politics? And remember David Brock, the Republican who lied on, and tried to slut sham Anita Hill? LOL, he’s yet *another* DNC surrogate, fundraiser, and trusted Clinton/DNC/DCCC insider. https://www.nytimes.com/2001/06/27/us/book-author-says-he-lied-his-attacks-anita-hill-bid-aid-justice-thomas.html LMAO, centrist Dems STAY tryna rehabilitate Republicans, even as they’re busy attacking progressives. Republicans and corporate Democrats are allies united against a common foe: actual progressives. Establishment Democrats love Republicans and “ex” Republicans more than their own progressive base. Not even a week after her victory, and the allegedly “liberal” network has already started attacking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This is just mud slinging by centrists. It’s corporate Dems trying to push their hopelessly flawed “horseshoe theory”. Remember, it was centrist Democrats—not Republicans—who coined the phrase “alt-left” so that they could create a false equivalence with the alt-right. Remember kids: “centrists are 50 percent Republican and 25 percent ‘former’ Republican” and that’s 75 percent too much Republican for me. Alexandria Osasio-Cortez is against literally EVERYTHING Trump represents. It’s journalistic malpractice to suggest that they’re even remotely the same. Republicans and centrist Democrats teaming up on cable tv to attack Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is proof that the Fishhook theory is a lot more accurate than the Horseshoe theory. I’m glad Ocasio kicked their sorry ass old white guy, Joseph what’s-his-face, down the stairs.

America, Books, and Brains: On April Fool's day, NPR had an extremely simple joke that turned out to be an incredibly effective demonstration of how much commenters on Facebook actually read of es The post was simple NPR shared a link What has become of our brains?

Some commenters blamed video games and TV, others got angry and offended because they were being accused of not reading: Who says Americans dont read? As an American who reads compulsively I find this offensive and at 3:38am Andrew J Greene Your comment is so funny I can't believe i'm reading an article about how I don't read anymore 3 - April 1 at 10:20am Are you SURE you're reading the article? 20 . April 1 at 10:47am Pshh..you must have interviewed right outside the Annual Moron's Convention. Everyone I know is It is because of video games. That's my theory, Plus, people just read on the internet these days But I still read and love paper books. I hate Nooks and Kindles E" level reader of his class. The levels in his class are A, beginner, to E, expert. My niece & oldest nephew are voracious readers as well. So, NPR, wipe those nervous beads of sweat from your brow, sit back, or read & conduct research at a library for another NPR story. There are plenty of bookworms, you just have to look for them. 31 Yesterday at 8:58am ets hope your brilliant nieces and nephews can help you read the article 5-22 hours ago viewers stopped reading everything except "books" by Coulter Malkin & O'Reilly, and Palin, which explains A LOT a picture of BOOKS.remember what those are? We are not talking about the ability to read text messages.or FB articles.t's abot ACTUALLY reading for pleasure and information.... People dont have the attention span or the 1 April 1 at 9:28pm I see you took the patience to read the article, so did you get a lot of information from it? What points did you agree/disagree with? 22 hours ago ummm yea, our son reads enough for many families plus plays video games and lifts weights and goes off with his friends and has a lot of fun...i.magine thatl He loves reading and you parents should teach this to your 1 - April 1 at 7:38pm much video. Everyone in my family reads a lot too, more so than watching video. Catchy headline, but not true. because of rap music and young earth 1 April 1 at 6:20pm As NPR fights back the deep, existential terror that people are reading their articles, and still questioning Really, I've noticed more articles lately, with more questionable content 1 April 1 at 3:18pm Television. It's the no-brainer. People expect to get information from it without effort. What they get is sold a bill of useless goods. Just sit and let it pour into your d1 April 1 at 12:44pm Edited In the words of ATHF: A book No sirl Shake says that books is from the devil, and that TV is twice as fast. 麗 Why transport yourself to far off worlds through books when there are so many dang video games out there to be played? Seriously, who the heck wants to read? Because kids are addicted to video games & TV AND parents arent reading to their kids. When L was little we never went to bed without a story, Now days we have at least 2 generations who don't read. April 1 at 10:52am If Facebook is any indicator (and it is) most people don't even bother to read the entire headline, much less the content. Why would we expect them to read an entire book? Luckily, there were some people who got the joke Ok, who are the biggest losers in this social experiment: the people who didn't read and commented anyway as though they did, the people that did read and commented as though they didn't, or the people that either didn't read closely enough to follow the instructions or couldn't even wait 10 minutes to spoil the joke? I can't decide, but thanks for the insight into Internet psychology, NPR 182 April 1 at 10:17am And some took the joke and ran with it: Brilliant, but a bit obscure for my taste. Especially the second paragraph stuff about democrats vs reblicans and the value of education. I do think the part about the GMO debate being mostly about liberal bias is extirely spot on. Not to mention all the stuff about Fox News, Glenn Beck and illegal allens being the real heroes in the war against Overall a great well balanced article. <p>Brilliant Facebook Prank Tricks Dumb People Who Consider Themselves Smart.</p>
