I’m basically just following my poliwonks list on Twitter today while considering switching away from the repetitive News24 coverage and getting in some Netflix. Since many of the tweeps on my list are Aussie or otherwise non-USAn I’m at least getting to see some other world news of the day beyond #USADecides. How about you?
It is rather delicious to see some of the ignorance on display amongst the Trolls for Trump crowd though:
One of the things upsetting the #MAGA crowd is “undercover political operative” Michael O’Keefe making a fuss about the longstanding, traditional #GOTV activities by both partisan and non-partisan volunteers such as driving buses to transport people who otherwise couldn’t get to the polls:
Mind you, if they had adequate polling stations for every district in every state most of those buses wouldn’t be necessary. The appalling logistical shortcomings of the US polling station setups (and I know that in some areas that is a deliberate partisan “feature” of the system rather than a bug) still gobsmacks me after all these years of watching it pan out yet again.
What news story/commentary/analysis has grabbed your attention lately?
As usual for media circus threads, please share your bouquets and brickbats for particular items in the mass media, or highlight cogent analysis or pointed twitterstorms etc in new media. Discuss any current sociopolitical issue (the theme of each edition is merely for discussion-starter purposes – all current news items are on topic!).
