Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News

Facebook is a private company and it has a right to do whatever it wishes with its platform. We will also say that Facebook has been an excellent outlet for ACC generally. But the issues presented in the attached article from Gizmodo should be aired and they are of concern. Facebook is a widely trusted brand.

It’s time to end Nerd Prom (The White House Correspondents’ Dinner)

Libertarian Gary Johnson in double digits in race against Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump: poll

This is an interesting development. And Johnson’s an interesting guy. He’s climbed Mount Everest. (And I think – though I’m not sure – the highest peak on each continent.)

If he’s at double digits consistently I think they have (yeah right) to let him into the debates.

I say let the Greens come to the debate too to make things fair. (Because that is what American politics is all about. “Fairness.”)
