Pulling the Plug

The Pulitzer Prize equivalent for broadcast journalism is the Alfred I. Dupont-Columbia University Awards.

PBS has 23.
NPR has 17.
CBS and ABC have 13 each.
NBC has 7.
CNN has 6.
MSNBC and Court TV have 2.

Fox News?


Surely there's a reason for that.


Remember the "death tax repeal" Republicans rammed through in the recent $1.5 trillion-dollar-giveaway to the rich? It was trumpeted as a way to save American family farms from them greedy tax rev'noors.

Oh, how the GOP cried and wept and beat their collective breasts at the fate of the actual handful of farmers who'd be affected by the inheritance tax, knowing full well the main benefit of the monies would go to the obscenely rich.... like President Blunt Trauma and his curious family of grifters.

But now family farms are actually facing bankruptcy as a result of Herr Twittler's super-genius tariff plans. Maybe it's just me but I don't hear any hue and cry from conservatives on Capital Hill about the unfortunate fate of family farms these days. Could it be it was all a ruse?



Someone told me on Twitter that "Raging Pencils" is now a euphemism for our Orange Oaf of Office. I may have to call my lawyers.


I am the Red Hen. I am Maxine Waters. I am Patricia Okoumou. I am Kristin Mink. I am Robert De Niro. I am David Hogg. I am Emma Gonzelez. I am Mike Avenetti. I am Stormy Daniels. I am Rachel Maddow. I am Pickaxe Guy. I am LeBron James. I am Robert Mueller. I am Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I am Peter Strzok.

Fuck Trump.
