Bias news and tossing out a bone to our friends on the dark side of the street to be fair and balanced.

Here are two articles, the first two have a bias slant. The 2nd one I would not consider posting here (read it a few days ago), but it serves as a good example of bias slant (understatement). The facts are accurate, but the descriptions and words used could be slightly more tempered.

1) In the first sentence, the word “interrogate” should be replaced with the word “question” or a less loaded verb.

“The Justice Department will interrogate senior CIA officers as part of an investigation on the origins of the Russia probe.”
https://www.oann.com/doj-to-question-senior-cia-officials-regarding-origins-of-russia-probe/

The second article appears to have a partisan slant. Ok, it’s an opinion piece, but.....

“But the state that Reagan once governed (1967-1975) has become the prime national example of the abject failure of Democratic policies, all of them. Jerry Brown's imaginary high-speed rail that was to initially run from Bakersfield to Merced in Central California is a bust. The cost was projected to be $77b but has forecast to be $98b! It most likely will never be completed. Billions have been wasted.

“Our state debt is over $1.5t. We have the highest gasoline prices in the nation. Oh, and we are a sanctuary state that protects all manner of illegal immigrants, no matter how serious the crimes they've committed. Think Jose Garcia Zanate who killed Kate Steinle. He had been deported seven times but was out and about on the streets of San Francisco with the blessings of SF law enforcement; they aim to protect the criminals at the expense of the law-abiding. ICE is the enemy in sanctuary cities and states, the thugs are victims.

“State taxes in California are the highest in the nation, as are our sales taxes. We fall nearly last in education. We have the most homeless, the most illegal migrants. The state spends $30.b on illegal immigration per year. Like all cities run by progressives, our entire state is a disaster of Democratic making. San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego have been overrun by homeless people, most of them drug addicted and/or mentally ill. Entire areas of these cities are befouled by used needles, feces, trash, garbage, rats and now diseases long-thought to be extinct in the West. Persons who work in downtown Los Angeles have contracted typhus! As true in other cites long run by Democrats (Chicago, Baltimore, Seattle, Detroit, Flint) it is the implementation of ridiculous utopian Marxist policies so beloved by progressives that has destroyed these once grand cities. Socialist strategies always fail. Democrats cheat, (ballot harvesting) are re-elected, and the state continues to decline. Venezuela is the current example of the massive failure.......” and on and on it goes, then privets to the media, aka, The Enemy of the People.

“As Levin's extraordinary and profound book pounds home, our mainstream media is part and parcel of the progressive plan, in Obama's words, to "fundamentally transform America." One has only to watch a few minutes of CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, or read the NYT and the WaPo to know this is true. Fake news hardly describes the rubbish they spew and call news. They lie, they calculate, they agree on a phrase of the day and all repeat it like the puppets they are; they seem to think they are masters of neuro-linguistic programming but they are just parrots who repeat what they've been directed to say. Since the moment Trump became a candidate for the presidency, they set out to demolish him. Once elected, they shifted into high gear, devised a full-on conspiracy to frame him for crimes he never committed. They are still at it, even though the Mueller Report cleared him. While the facts of their grand plan are being revealed, they still hope to defeat the man. But they will not. The American people are on to them, enough of them anyway. We see our left for what they are, America-hating control freaks who lay waste to everything they touch.”

Walt, great new self portrait there. Is soooo you. Get done on you bad orange self!

Balanced budget talk, like the illegal alien invasion, will drive me batty. Beyond exasperated. Vote for Ron Paul and his three supporters if you want a balanced budget. Heck, there is currently only one Dem in Congress who supports a balanced budget, some oddball that keeps Paul from being a by his lonesome. Ron calls himself Libertarian-R and his cohort in crime Libertarian-D.
—————
The Mayor of Los Angeles ran on the single issue of ending homelessness in the city in ten years. Throwing a billion at the problem has not yet resulted in desired results. In fact, one could easily make the argument that it just made matters worse. The mayor said ten years and he has a few years left to get ‘er done.

Lie is such a ugly word. It is hateful, degrading, and against our community standards. That’s not who we are. I prefer the term ‘unfulfilled promises.’
Trump said ten years? He has plenty of time.

More on soccer. You got to feel tiny Estonia.

Soccer is the world’s game, but women’s soccer is not. Not many countries take women’s soccer seriously and, with the possible exception of the U.S., those that do don’t take it nearly as seriously as they take men’s soccer.

Hence, mismatches like the U.S.-Thailand farce. There just aren’t enough competent women’s teams in some continents to make up a strong world cup field.

At the real World Cup, a mismatch like yesterday’s is nearly impossible. If the best men’s team from Europe or South America played the worst team from Asia or North America, one would expect a 4-6 goal margin of victory. 13-0 is unheard of.

It’s true that Germany defeated Estonia 8-0 yesterday in a men’s game, but not in the World Cup. The Estonia team could never qualify for the World Cup as that tournament is presently constituted. And 8-0 isn’t 13-0.“

It’s a business, stupid! Where’s the beef?

“...n 2015 — the last time the Women’s World Cup took place. The main reason women soccer players aren’t paid as much as men is due to the fact that there is simply less interest from viewers. The lower interest results in less money brought in from advertisers and revenue to the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).

“When women’s soccer came to Fox Sports, it averaged about 63,000 viewers, while the men’s team regularly brings in 240,000 viewers per game at ESPN. This changes when the women’s team is in the World Cup. Views at that time rival that of the men’s team — but just for that short period. Chris Chase wrote at USA Today in 2015 that this is more akin to national pride than any love of women’s soccer.

The lower viewership leads to lower revenue. The Washington Post reported in 2015 (while trying to blame sexism) that women’s soccer only brought in $17 million in ad sponsorship for Fox Sports, while the men’s final in 2014 brought ESPN $529 million in ad revenue. Further, the men’s World Cup generated $4.5 billion in direct revenue to FIFA.

And if we really want to talk about equality, the women’s team gets a higher percentage of revenue than the men’s team, yet they neglect to include this fact when complaining about how little they got in bonuses. CBS reported four years ago that the men’s team received 9% of the revenue generated by the 2010 World Cup — which amounted to $348 million. The women’s team received 13% of the 2015 World Cup revenue, but because the women’s team brought in less revenue, they only received $10 million.

Bill Tozer

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the Lefty mainstream media is a bit touchy lately and rather defensive? Odd. They are coming out of the woodwork in every direction to say, yes, we are relevant.
This all started at the release of Levin’s new exhaustive book “Unfreedom Of The Press”, which hit #1 on the NYT’s best seller list...#1 in hard bound, download, podcast...all the formats

It’s like they (you know who you are) are running a big ole orchestrated ad campaign. Like, ‘You are in good hands with Allstate” or “Come back to Jamaica”. They really want us to know that we can trust them, they care about us and are devoted solely to “the American people”...come on back, the waters warm. Less animated.

They act all butthurt, like they got bruises now on their upper arms and don’t like being treated with scorn...no sire, not to mention a blend of ridicule seasoned liberally with contempt. They ain’t taking it gracefully. But, they never have.
After Acosta heard about the laugh track added to the video below, he blurted out something about being sick and tired of Trump mocking the media. :)

"Trump was going to have a balanced budget and pay off the debt in 10 years. Gosh and golly, what happened Walt???"

Yeah Walt, what happened? Did you enjoy that tax cut? How about them embargoes and tariffs? Price of steel and aluminum have kind of sucked. At B&C, $50.00 for the same box of deck screws that cost $35.00 last year? Thanks Trump. Think I'll wait to start this project.

How about them gun brokers going belly up because the arms merchants couldn't stoke the fear factor? Never fear, just blow up a few ships in the Gulf of Oman, or was it the Tonkin Gulf, or was it Havana Harbor, they all run together anymore. . . I can't keep it straight. Anyway arms deals will be on the rise and modern day Rebane's will once again be able to sell munitions and for their blood stained golden parachutes.

Well, one gun manufacture did just declare bankruptcy in the last day or two. The dumbshits thought Hillary would win and stocked up on inventory to the rafters and got extra shifts going with bank loans and Hillary lost. Now, they can’t get rid of their inventory and pay off their debts to Mr. Moneybags. Oppps.

Walt always attracts some weirdos. Turn on the lights and you attract all sorts of bugs. Probably one of your NextDoorPenn Valley secret admirers, roflmao. Now Walt, don’t being bringing your trash over here. :)

Whoa Nelly, the dam is bustin’.

“At B&C, $50.00 for the same box of deck screws that cost $35.00 last year? Thanks Trump.”

Sucks to be you. Who pays retail nowadays? I just use my generous contractors’ discount. I ain’t no contractor, only insinuated I am. Works every time. They never check on the good guys. Gotta dress the part. Let’s just say it more than covers the CA sales tax. I be Taxed Enough Already. This is State of Jefferson territory.

You remind me of when I was quite a bit younger and decked one of my workers for stealing a pipe wrench sitting on the floor of a job tractor of a small time excavator. He said he did it because the operator could afford it. I have never seen right to steal or (wink wink) deceive a small business owner - I am one. In my mind you are a bastard.

Hands up don't shoot, uh wait, not so much -

A 20-year-old black man whose Wednesday shooting death by a fugitive task force sparked a night of violence and unrest in a Memphis, Tenn., neighborhood, was wanted for a shooting in Mississippi, according to media reports.
DeSoto County District Attorney John Champion said Brandon Webber was wanted on aggravated assault and armed robbery charges related to a shooting during a car theft in Hernando, Miss., on June 3. The victim was shot five times and survived, Champion said.

Hernando is 35 miles south of Memphis.
U.S. Marshals with the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force went looking for Webber at a home in Memphis' Frayser neighborhood Wednesday. They spotted him getting inside a vehicle, which he used to ram task force vehicles several times, officials said.

Police retreat under a cloud of tear gas as protesters disperse from the scene of a standoff after Frayser community residents took to the streets in anger against the shooting of a youth by U.S. Marshals earlier in the evening, Wednesday, June 12, 2019, in Memphis, Tenn. (Jim Weber/Daily Memphian via AP)

Webber was shot and killed when he got out of the vehicle holding a weapon, Tennessee authorities said. It was not clear how many times he was hit or how many shots were fired.
News of Webber's death prompted a night of clashes between police and residents in the neighborhood.

Around 36 police officers suffered minor injuries due to bricks and rocks being thrown at them and several police vehicles were damaged. Several officers were taken to hospitals and were later released, according to a Memphis Police Department tweet.

Seems you missed the memo.
"Huckleberry Finn is frequently cited as one of the most censored books in American literature for offensive language and racism.

In 2011, Twain scholar Alan Gribben attempted to make the novel more appropriate for school-aged readers by publishing an edited version".

You mutha mullahs, we got ya now! Abe must be royally pissed! -

“At 8:09 a.m. local time a U.S. aircraft observed an IRGC Hendijan class patrol boat and multiple IRGC fast attack craft/fast inshore attack craft (FAC/FIAC) in the vicinity of the M/T Altair [one of the damaged tankers],” he said.

About 9:12 a.m., Urban said, U.S. aircrew saw those Iranians pull a raft from the water after the attack.

The Altair’s crew had been rescued by a cargo ship. At 9:26 a.m., the Iranians asked the crew of the cargo ship, the Hyundai Dubai, to hand over the Altair mariners and they complied, Urban said. Meanwhile, mariners from the other attacked tanker, the Kokuka Courageous, had been rescued by a nearby tug. Urban said the Iranians tried to reach the tug first, but they were outrun by the guided missile Bainbridge, which took the rescued mariners aboard.

“While the Hendijan patrol boat appeared to attempt to get to the tug Coastal Ace before USS Bainbridge, the mariners were rescued by USS Bainbridge,” Urban said.

Four hours later, “an IRGC Gashti Class patrol boat approached the M/T Kokuka Courageous and was observed and recorded removing the unexploded limpet mine from the M/T Kokuka Courageous,” he said.

Huck Flynn

Pretty insightful that I can bring up three different topics currently on the world stage and all you can do is rally about Huck Finn (Flynn is not Finn) and trolls. You might as well be mynah birds. Or rabbits in the headlights. Do you think Iran is responsible for mining tankers in the gulf? Of course you do. Just like you did in Viet Nam and in Cuba. Maybe if you think for a second, you could tell us what is in it for them? Do they want to engage the US on their soil? If you are a war profiteer, of course that's what you want the world to believe.

Bill Tozer

Walt, he’s all yours. He’s all warmed up and ready to roll. . He’s is going off on the Russian funded Peace Movement again. They all do. All that war money could be spent on Tiny Tim and his adopted retarded twin sisters.

That must be one old ass troll! Cuba? LOL! Those mutha mullahs suffer from generations long group think like all dictatorships. They must have listened to 0's secretary lurch and the socialist dems and grossly miscalculated. Time to put down the rabid dog now that they are broke and have been unable to pay the proxies for a long while and have no depth of anything to last.

Its pretty much imposable to hide anything anymore with the layers of technology especially with the numbers of eyes on the gulf.

Remember the Russian BUK anti aircraft battery that shot down the airliner over Ukraine was undone by social media meta data on the crews facebook picture postings and locals tracking its movement by picture posting. Including the one where it was heading home minus one missile or didn't that make the talking points for trolls?

We have mutual defense agreements with the NATO article 5 countries and Japan who's vessels were attacked. DUH!

Don't we have to stand up for our allies as the dems have yelled for 3 years? Hypocrites.

That deer in the headlights look has a basis in fear and she should be afraid of the next cycle, even the dems are going primary her -

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesman sent a profane tweet to a potential Republican challenger as he ripped him for wanting to debate his boss.

“Yo @RichValdes what in the actual f--- makes you think you’re entitled to a debate with AOC,” spokesman Corbin Trent tweeted Sunday at the conservative talk radio producer who’s mulling a run against the freshman congresswoman.

Earlier that day, Valdes said he tried to challenge Ocasio-Cortez to a debate on the merits of capitalism versus socialism as they both marched in the National Puerto Rican Day Parade. Valdes claims the democratic socialist “jetted to the other side of street” when he tried to approach her.

Seems like just yesterday that the sky was falling cause mean oleTrump wanted NATO members and specially Germany, the largest economic powerhouse in the EU and de facto leader of old Europe, to pay their long agreed upon fair share. Oh my,poor poor poor Germany not only Welched on their word to pay 2% of GDP for NATO defense (from the current laughable 1.4%), the Krauts reneged on that and said FU, we are going to lower the tab to 1%! How absolutely European of them.
Everybody wants security and for us pay for the ride so they can go play house and pick out Muslim baby names.
Can’t touch NATO, cannot not keep out indigent illiterate in any and all languages unskilled 17-year old girls with 3 kids from the country, can’t, can’t, can’t. Oh look at those,puppies. They are so cute.
Gotta pay for everybody to sit around the barn and eat up the hay. The dollar can only stretch so far. But the rich folks have dollars!!

No wonder they are obsessed with taxing the rich. Totally full blown OCD obsessed with taxing rich folks. Tax ‘em, Tax ‘em, tax the pants off of them!!! Make them pay for it all! We must get our hands on their money. Must get rich folks money! Must! Must get hands in their pockets. Must get hands in their poczzzzzzzz.. Darn.

They sell oil and after the attack, the price of oil went up.
Iran has used mines in the recent past against commercial ships in that area.
Why don't we wait and see what other evidence comes in?
Or is Huck claiming people in the US govt would lie?
Gasp!!
I thought the left completely trusts our govt and believes everything all of its agents say. Or is it only when it's convenient?

Huck Flynn

Wally-
Where did you read the word Republican? Your reading comprehension continues to slide.

I was talking to war profiteers. Blood merchants. Havana Harbor is too ancient history to be relevant with your ability to rationalize conflict?? How about Colin Powell's presentation? The grainy picture "proof" of baby food factories punching out nuclear weapons look about the same as the grainy picture "proof" of Iran blowing up oil tankers.

Todd Juvinall

Looks like Hucky has been on the River with Jim and is now turned. Trolls like Hucky are worthless to the threads and are as unintelligent as a goose.

Walt

Name names Hucky "war profiteers" is SO Proggy nondescript..
And George Bush himself swam out to the tankers and placed those limpet mines.

Scott O

From Huck - "I was talking to war profiteers."
And what did they say, Huck?

Huck Flynn

"I was talking to war profiteers."

Scott "What did they say?"

Wally replied, "ya "huck",, Blame the Repubs."

There you have it from one of your own. "War profiteers" immediately invokes the word Republican. I didn't say it. Wally did. I am not so limited in my opinion. Plenty of war profiteers and blood merchants on the left. Of course not a person has responded intelligently to my query, only bluster, bluff and diversions.

George Rebane

HuckF 923am - Other than asking you to give some evidence for your assertions Mr Flynn, what would an intelligent response be to your somewhat remarkable statement? Firing a torpedo and/or placing a limpet charge on the hull of a moving tanker reduces the number of perpetrators to a very few who could do it for political gain. I'm not aware of any private sector "war profiteers" who maintain such deployed offensive capabilities, but do know of several nations that have that capability. It is hard to believe that our Navy does not know how those ships were attacked. We have an attack sub on station there, and I'd bet the farm that Hormuz already has a very sophisticated sonar array installed (similar to the one in the GIUK gap) which tracks every waterborne object in that strait.

It is easy to generate a plausible scenario for Iran being the perpetrator, given the stress caused by our sanctions, their interest in testing the coalition's resolve, and the requirement to maintain internal stability between Iran's mullahs and revolutionary military. BTW, the displayed hull damage to the ships was NOT caused by a modern fleet torpedo which would easily have penetrated the tankers' double hulls. These explosives were designed and deployed to pique and irritate for political purposes.

What does the BBC say? -

Iran has come under massive economic pressure over the past year, since US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal and re-imposed some of the most aggressive sanctions in US foreign policy history - targeting Iran's oil sales, wider energy industry, shipping, banking, insurance and more.

But the re-imposition of sanctions recently by the US has significantly ratcheted up the pressure on Iran, pressure that would go some way to explaining why it might seek to threaten the international oil trade, while its own oil sits bounded by its borders.

The risk of such a strategic move is significant - the fallout is potential military escalation with the US and its allies in the region.

It is not a gamble that would have been made quickly or lightly.
It would have been taken by consensus by all the main heads of the different Iranian political institutions, with Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards (IRGC) playing a significant part given their influence over all regional dossiers, and the supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, having the final say over all matters of security and international affairs.

Iran may suspect that the risk is lower than it first seems, because Mr Trump does not want a war.

If strategic patience is in fact at an end, Iran may feel that only by displaying the range and scale of its potential destabilising activities - including disruption of the international oil trade it has been barred from - can it increase its leverage with the US, and pull itself out from under the punishing sanctions its old foe has imposed.

Twitter found 2,865 Iran-linked accounts which “employed a range of false personas to target conversations about political and social issues in Iran and globally.” Of the banned accounts, 300 were “focused on influencing discussions related to Israel.” The banned accounts collectively generated about two million tweets.

Now you are flying your true colors of obfuscation. But that's what you did for a living. Correct me if I'm wrong that you worked for the "defense" industry helping develop weapons that only make money when there is conflict. Bottom line depends on it. . How deeply intrenched are "private sector" profiteers with our government? Basically one in the same. Please tell us that mercenaries and contracted militia are not trained, equipped, and funded by the government to do exactly the kind of things like covertly mining shipping lanes and launching torpedoes acquired from a hostile nation in the name of plausible deniability.

From your link, I found this link:

“This has implications for reservoirs operated around the state, including Oroville and Prado Dam. “The Orange County Water District is grateful to Senator Dodd and Assemblymember Wood for their efforts in securing funding for FIRO research,” stated Vicente Sarmiento, president of OCWD. “With better weather forecasting, an additional 20,000 acre-feet of storage space could be made available for stormwater capture behind Prado Dam without impacting flood risk. Doing so would allow OCWD to capture and use an additional 20,000 acrefeet or 6.5 billion gallons of stormwater in a wet year which would otherwise drain to the Pacific Ocean. That’s enough water for 160,000 people.”

“This essential investment in public safety and sustainable water management shows true leadership and is vitally important as California works to address the challenges of climate change,” said Curt Aikens, general manager of Yuba Water Agency.

“Scripps and the coalition have also embarked on a multi-phase federal scoping study in collaboration with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to assess the viability of using FIRO for reservoirs in the southwest United States, where the majority of rainfall often occurs in three to four storms per year.

“Many members of the coalition have worked to optimize the amount of water stored behind reservoirs and dams to recharge as much of the limited rainfall as possible into groundwater basins and reservoirs. Large rainfall events caused by atmospheric rivers are a major source of water supply in southern California.”

That’s enough water for 160,000 people? Well, that just got wiped out with our open borders policy. Not even enough to cover two months of illegals flooding in.

It’s seem like just a few months ago everyone was singing John McCain’s praises to the rooftops, saying he walked on water and all.

So the fakenewsmen and haters claimed there was no supplemental part to the mexico migrant accord? Wrong beyotches -

Mexico City (AFP) - Mexico published the document Friday that US President Donald Trump fleetingly showed the press this week as evidence he had extracted tough new concessions on migration from the neighboring country.

Trump theatrically waved the one-page document in front of reporters Tuesday, fending off critics who said his use of tariff threats to force Mexico into a deal on curbing migration had in fact extracted little in the way of new commitments from the Mexican side.

Photojournalists managed to capture a few sentences of the document, but the full contents had not previously been revealed.

The document is a "supplementary agreement" to the deal the US and Mexico signed last Friday, and outlines additional measures the two sides agree to take.

The two countries "will immediately begin discussions to establish definitive terms for a binding bilateral agreement to further address burden-sharing and the assignment of responsibility for processing refugee status claims of migrants," it says.

Under that "binding bilateral agreement," the countries "would accept the return, and process refugee status claims, of third-party nationals who have crossed that party's territory to arrive" in the neighboring country, it says.

That language appears to resemble Trump's demand for a "safe third country" agreement in which migrants entering Mexican territory would have to seek asylum there, not the United States, and be immediately deported to Mexico if they entered the US.

The document adds that the agreement would be "part of a regional approach" to dealing with undocumented migrants and refugees.

"Mexico also commits to immediately begin examining domestic laws and regulations with a view to identifying any changes that may be necessary to bring into force and implement such an agreement," it says.

re HuckF 1026pm - This sackhead has now shown himself to be a real lightweight among the usual leftwing lightweights who attempt debate here (BTW, there are some worthy ones also). Of course, these local lackeys only consume their blindered outlets, so he and his never see the complete spectrum of news. In this case it includes a US Navy video showing an Iranian fast boat blatantly removing an unexploded hull (limpet) mine from a tanker at sea that it had placed there earlier so as not to leave evidence of its provenance. What is doubly remarkable about worthies like HuckF is that they don't even reliably canvas their own outlets for news that would aid them in not making complete fools of themselves in public. Here's a report from WaPo as an example.

And it’s not a normal gun, either — it is a 40-caliber semi-automatic, and she has hollow-point bullets to go with it. Amy, this is the kind of weapon a criminal would possess! She says it is for emergencies. There have only been two home invasions in our neighborhood in the last 11 years.

I’ve given her three choices: She can either give her weapon to me, sell it or move out in three weeks. I love my daughter and would be so sad for her to move into a place that she would hardly be able to afford but now I have to lock my bedroom door at night because I don’t know what she’s going to do. Now she says that I don’t trust her, and is barely speaking to me. How can I convince her to stop endangering us?

With that said......the blame America First! crowd is alive and kicking. Nothing we have not recently heard from Ilhan Omar (D-Somalia) when she grilled Venezuelan envoy Abrams on the role the US had in El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and other shitholes decades ago. Or, nothing one won’t hear on and given night from the crockpot on Democracy Now! No, the US did not run.death squads....the tin horn police states did that all by themselves.

There was once some fatso on KVMR many moons ago trying to raise funds from listeners (of course) to pay his trip to El Salvador to do some poking around and uncover American atrocities. Send him a dollar, 5 bucks, even ten. Raid the kid’s piggy bank.
I picked up the landline and called the station and told him I would donate 200 bucks if he promised not to return, lol. My offer was not appreciated.

Odd, that when folks like me dared to question Comey, McCabe, Clapper, and Brennan, we were met with an instant barrage of accusations of being of being a THREAT TO DEMOCRACY. Just raising the possibility of nefarious motives by government officials brought fire and brimstone upon our conspiring heads. And then, in a flash of a millisecond, they turn around and believe the largest sponsor of state terrorism on the planet and assign nefarious motives to the US government. Believe Iran First. Blame America First. Question authority, lol. America is not not-guilty. Can you say selective outrage? Good, I knew you could.
