Andras Schiff Embraces Historical Instruments

Admirers and critics alike may say, “At last!” This is a strong about-face. “He proudly played Bach on modern pianos; referred to fortepianists with an interest in Schubert as mere ‘specialists’; and told a New York Times interviewer in 1983, ‘I’ve heard some ghastly things done in the name of authenticity.’ Time and experience, though, have brought about a wholesale change in his attitude, and Schiff has transformed into an eager evangelist for the use of historical keyboards.” – The New York ...

Disgraced Yale Law Professor Now Defending Anti-Vaxxers In Court With His Nonsense Section 230 Ideas (techdirt)

Back in January, we wrote about a bizarrely bad Wall Street Journal op-ed co-written by disgraced and suspended Yale Law professor Jed Rubenfeld, arguing that Section 230 somehow magically makes social media companies state actors, controlled by the 1st Amendment. This is, to put it mildly, wrong. His argument is convoluted and not at all convincing. He takes the correct idea that government officials threatening private companies with government retaliation if they do not remove speech creates ...

The Biden Administration’s Assault on Firearms Industry Continues

Joe Biden mentioned a number of the anti-gun goals he has set during his recent address to Congress.  IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A. -( Joe Biden mentioned a number of the anti-gun goals he has set during his recent address to Congress, but for some reason, he did not mention his support for bankrupting the firearms industry through endless, meritless lawsuits.

Newsom Declares April 24 ‘Day Of Remembrance’ In CA As Biden Recognizes Atrocities Against Armenians As Genocide

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP/CBS13) — The systematic killing and deportation of more than a million Armenians by Ottoman Empire forces in the early 20th century was “genocide,” the United States formally declared on Saturday, as President Joe Biden used that precise word after the White House had avoided it for decades for fear of alienating ally Turkey. California Gov. Gavin Newsom followed suit and declared April 24 as a “Day of Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide” in the state. “Today and ev...

Another Must-Carry Lawsuit Against YouTube Fails–Daniels v Alphabet

[I’ll discuss Justice Thomas’ latest bonkers statement later this week] Daniels, a/k/a “Young Pharoah,” posted videos to YouTube, apparently of the #MAGA genre. YouTube removed some videos, allegedly “shadowbanned” him (again, I raise questions whether that’s the appropriate term here), and allegedly kept money it should have paid to him. (This looks like a situation where YouTube applied overlapping content moderation remedies). He sued YouTube for a variety of claims, all of which fail. Perso...
