Despite CNN head Jeff Zucker and the network’s various mouthpieces attempting to paint themselves as the victims in their Orwellian crusade against the free speech rights of an anonymous Internet .gif maker who dared to mock them, very few are buying their banana oil, and the story isn’t going away. In fact, if the person they bullied (or some non-politically-corrupted law enforcement agency) wants to make a federal case out of it, it’s possible they literally could make a federal case out of it.
A top House Democratic official declared that the party needs to improve its future prospects by “putting its best foot forward.” But it proved impossible to pin him down on whether that meant putting its foot forward to kick Nancy Pelosi down the stairs, or to tap dance around the question of whether they need to kick Nancy Pelosi down the stairs.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg talks a lot about using his social media site to bring people together into an online community, but it seems to be a community with certain approved political views and no churches. For instance, Facebook created a rainbow emoji for users to signal gay pride, but refused requests to create a cross emoji for Christians to signal pride in their faith. Zuckerberg complains that society is still “very divided,” but he doesn’t seem to understand that one of the surest ways to exacerbate those divisions is to give people the impression that some groups are favored by those in power while others are oppressed.
It is possible for people with different views to get along, but it’s a heck of a lot easier when they all believe there’s a level playing field.
