Case study on the Ginsburg conspiracy theories in action

#WheresRuth. Even as the answer – working from home while recovering from cancer surgery – was covered by journalists and confirmed by the Supreme Court itself, this hashtag and similar ones populated Twitter in January and February.

Tweet Containing Question Mark Isn’t Defamatory–Boulger v. Woods

In 2016, the Chicago Tribune published a photo of a woman giving a Nazi salute at a Trump rally. Twitter user @voxday wrongly identified the plaintiff as that woman.

Cannon: ‘First Man’ is a giant step for America and movies

It sounds like the opening to a joke: Donald Trump, Bill Kristol and Marco Rubio walk into a bar. The three Republican frenemies eye each other warily, until one breaks the ice by asking, “What did you guys think of the new movie about the moon landing?” “Total lunacy,” says Rubio, a Florida senator who while running for president in 2016 questioned the size of Trump’s manhood. “A foolish and pernicious falsification of history,” adds Bill Kristol, a conservative magazine editor so unhinged by T...

James Woods Is Correct That Twitter Shouldn't Have Blocked His Account, But Still Hypocritical On Free Speech (techdirt)

I think we've made our general feelings about James Woods perfectly clear. After all, he's the guy who sued an anonymous Twitter user for a somewhat mild comeback that referenced cocaine usage (leaving aside that Woods himself had tweeted very similar hyperbolic tweets suggesting people he was arguing with were on crack). In the middle of that lawsuit, the (still) anonymous tweeter died, leading Woods to gloat about "winning" the case and about the guy's death. Suffice it to say, Woods is -- in ...
