It Wasn't About Epstein Anymore

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Pablo Picasso Man with ice cream cone 1938   My first thought after reading about Jeffrey Epstein’s so-called suicide is: let it go, watch a movie instead, or go out to dinner. But a suicide of someone under suicide watch is just too much. And then I understand NBC -oh wait, and Reuters too- said he wasn’t even on suicide watch anymore. A guy who allegedly tried to kill himself two weeks ago. But of course. Why should he

Epstein, or How Your News is Cooked

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Prince Andrew, Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Ghislaine Maxwell in 2001   The US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit unsealed a batch of documents in the Jeffrey Epstein case today, as announced recently. Actually, it’s a case brought by Virginia Roberts Giuffre against Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s madam and main procurer of little girls. Giuffre bought the case after Maxwell accused her of lying about the whole thing. There’s still much more of this to come, and given the

Social Media Civil War

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Edward Hopper Ground swell 1939   The US government has to come up with very very strong legislation for social media, and it has to do that very soon. Because if it doesn’t, it risks those same social media inciting a civil war (that’s no hyperbole, that is real) on American soil. And beyond as well, but as Donald Trump said about European efforts to curtail Twitter, Facebook et al’s activities, they’re American companies and hence America’s responsibility. Well,
