Barr Meddles In Presidential Election By Warning Of Socialism Under Biden

Attorney General Bill Barr acknowledged in an interview last week that, as the nation’s top law enforcement official, “I’m not supposed to get into politics.” Then he went and did it anyway. In a wide-ranging conversion with Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass, which Kass partially quoted in his column last week , Barr said he believed “we are going to find ourselves irrevocably committed to a socialist path” if Joe Biden is elected president.  “I think if Trump loses this election, t...

Stop making excuses for the 'protesters' that act like bad cops

A protester throws flaming trash toward the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse after breaking through a newly-reinforced perimeter fence on July 22, 2020 in Portland, Oregon. Nathan Howard/Getty Images We're in an overcautious moment when it comes to criticizing incidents of violence and property destruction when they're even tangentially related to the protests against police brutality and racism. The protest movement is righteous, and protesters deserve respect. But opportunists and violen...

As the pandemic, fires, and inequity all rage, free market icon Milton Friedman's declaration that the sole responsibility of business 'is to increase its profits' sounds emptier than ever

Milton Friedman spearheaded shareholder primacy economics. Jon Hargest/South China Morning Post via Getty Images In 1970, Milton Friedman wrote an influential essay in The New York Times Magazine declaring the primary purpose of a company is to maximize profits for its shareholders. He disagreed that businesses had any responsibility to provide employment, eliminate discrimination, or avoid pollution, among other 'catchwords of the contemporary crop of reformers.' From regula...

Barr Says ‘Logic’ Informed His Baseless Assertion That Foreign Countries May Send Fake Ballots

Attorney General Bill Barr on Wednesday shared an absurd response when pressed on why he’s floated the baseless assertion of foreign countries potentially producing and sending out fake mail-in ballots in the November election, during an interview on CNN. In an interview published in the New York Times Magazine in June, Barr said that he’s concerned about foreign influence as states have expanded access to mail-in voting in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We’ve been talking about how, in term...

The legal battle over those novelty Sea Monkeys and X-Ray Specs involves white supremacy and a 60s bondage film star

Sea Monkeys — those little frozen brine shrimp that came with an elaborate aquatic playground that was never actually as cool as the marketing made it look — were invented in 1957 by a man named Harold von Braunhut. A con man by any other name, von Braunhut was also a marketing genius, hyping up his cheap gimmicky toys like Sea Monkeys and X-Ray Specs with famously exciting ad placement, mostly in comic books. By the end of his life in 2003, he held 195 patents for an array of awesome-sounding-b...

An interview with Charlie Kaufman about his new novel takes a weirdly meta Kaufman-esque turn

Charlie Kaufman is the acclaimed screenwriter behind surrealist movies like Being John Malkovich; Adaptation; Synecdoche, New York; and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. My favorite bizarrely wonderful story about him — which, in a way, is kind of a synecdoche for his entire oeuvre of work, which is also something I learned about through his films — is that his Academy Award-winning screenplay for Adaptation is one of the few Oscars credited to a completely fictional person. Kaufman was hir...

A photojournalist captured aerial pictures of a mass grave being built in New York City before police confiscated his drone

Police have confiscated the drones of at least two photojournalists attempting to take aerial photos of a mass grave being built in New York City. The city is burying unclaimed and anonymous victims of COVID-19 on Hart Island, a stretch of land off the shore of the Bronx. Hart Island has been historically used for such anonymous burials, but new graves on the island are being dug at almost five times the usual rate as COVID-19 overwhelms city morgues. The NYC Department of Corrections is now k...

“Is It Moral To Work For A Tech Giant?”

I recently read “The Great Google Revolt” in the New York Times Magazine. The article chronicles the conflict between Google and some of its employees over company practices that some of their employees deem unethical. I found the article interesting because I taught computer ethics for many years and I’ve always wanted to do meaningful work. I’ve also written about ethics and tech previously in “Are Google and Facebook Evil?” “Irrational Protests Against Google,” and “How Technology Hijacks Peo...

Hannah Marks turned 24 while directing her first feature film – though she says she looked even younger than that. “So definitely, in the first few days, people did not realize I was one of the directors,” Marks, who is now 26, says of “After Everything,” the 2018 release she co-wrote and co-directed with Joey Power. “Like, there were a few days of people asking me to get them coffee and stuff, and I was like, ‘I can’t; I’m busy. I gotta direct this thing,’” she says from her home in Los Angeles...
