Just when ya thought rapist Dominique Strauss Khan was an open and shut case of a privileged white man taking advantage of his power, turns out if the victim has friends in jail for possession of pot then the rape never happened. Read it on the NY Times then go kick in a wall.
What the Frack! Andrew Cuomo our new Gay Hero just became an environmental nightmare! He lifted the ban on fracking in several counties in upstate New York. Our friend Sabrina Artel has been fighting the frack in her upstate home (the Marcellus Shale region) for the last several years, and has been a part of the movement to stop the environmentally risky process. Marcellus Shale provides water to all of downstate (the Metro area). If you give a shit, and want to keep the new Gov on the side of the Force let him know, not to take the hand of Vader!
Speaking of Star Wars, turns out Roger Ailes has been trying to put a conservative spin on TV ever since the Nixon era! Gwaker does major investigative piece (a newsworthy event in and of itself) on Roger Ailes. "According to a remarkable document buried deep within the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, the intellectual forerunner for Fox News was a nakedly partisan 1970 plot by Ailes and other Nixon aides to circumvent the "prejudices of network news" and deliver "pro-administration" stories to heartland television viewers." (via Gwaker)
p.s. I did not create this graphic someone else can up with the comparison, I merely googled.
