Court Tosses Devin Nunes' Silly SLAPP Lawsuit Against CNN (techdirt)

As we noted at the time -- despite a weird column by a media critic at the Washington Post saying that this case was "halfway decent" -- the case seemed like the dumbest Nunes' suit we'd seen so far. ...

Thanks for everything, Rush: Michael Reagan

His fans knew it was coming, but they were still crushed to hear the news that Rush Limbaugh had died.

They called him names, misrepresented his personality and, in the end, succeeded only in betraying how little they had listened to his show during the last 30 years. The bums who run the New York Times w...
