You’d think there would be enough in the news these days that really is shocking without seeing the stock market roiled by a giant wave of pretend shock over the “news” that details about users of social media platforms such as Facebook are mined and sold to companies that hope to persuade said users to do, buy or like certain things (for those who truly did just arrive here from the planet Antares, that’s known as “advertising.”)
Hillary Clinton’s claim that women who didn’t vote for her were told not to by their husbands elicited plenty of heated reactions online, including some from powerful women who didn’t need a man to tell them to be royally ticked off.
As more and more Republicans are concluding that there’s no alternative to a second special counsel to investigate bias and abuses of power by the FBI and Justice Department, more attention is being paid to the role played by Deputy Attorney Gen. Rod Rosenstein, and it’s about time, because he's the one who gave us Robert Mueller.
Maybe there’s hope for the movie industry after all: the new faith-based film, “I Can Only Imagine,” opened in third place last weekend, trailing only the giant blockbusters “Black Panther” and “Tomb Raider” that were on twice as many screens.

It’s hard to believe that 15 minutes of fame can stretch out to three years, but “Clock Boy” is back in the news again – let’s hope, for the last time.
Wednesday, just one month after the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the House passed a bipartisan bill called the STOP (Students, Teachers, Officers Prevention) School Violence Act.
This is not a rerun: A teenage male whom authorities knew to be a potential threat has attacked a group of people in Florida. But it’s not getting as much media attention as you might expect, maybe because it doesn’t fit the current preferred media narrative.
When I used to do my radio show, the announcer would come back from a commercial break with the slogan: “He’s conservative...but he’s not mad at anybody.”

In recent commentaries, I’ve made flip remarks about Andrew McCabe leaving the FBI to collect his pension, just as Lois Lerner of the IRS is collecting hers. Well, Lerner gets to keep hers, but it turns out that McCabe’s pension is very much in play.
We know quite a bit now about the role Fusion GPS played in getting that “dossier” put together by Christopher Steele and Clinton goon Sidney Blumenthal. Well, it turns out there’s a backstory

After all the hoopla, the special election for Pennsylvania's 18th District House seat ended with neither side able to declare full victory (Democrat Conor Lamb tried early on, but then, as Hillary Clinton taught us, not actually winning is no impediment to Democrats declaring themselves the winner).
Today, there is a special election for the 18th Congressional District in Pennsylvania that’s probably been accorded far more national importance than it should.
Big news fresh out of the White House this morning...
Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have announced they’re officially shutting down their investigation into Trump/Russia collusion after concluding that no evidence has been found to link Russia with the Trump campaign.
That Democratic “youth dream ticket” of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren might not come true – or maybe it will.

Americans keep trying to tell Hollywood that they have adopted a bad business model by constantly insulting at least half their potential audience, but they just don’t seem to be getting the message (an odd Achilles heel for people who are supposedly in the communications business).
