I think the Washington Post has actually been pretty good since Jeff Bezos assimilated it, but FAIR catches the Post business page thumping Uber on several occasions without disclosing that Mr. Bezos has a billion-dollar-plus stake in Uber. And the Post generally mentions Mr. Bezos's position as CEO of Amazon when reporting on Amazon. File this under "why one corporation shouldn't own another corporation."
Chris Morran at The Consumerist reports that Comcast has instructed its employees to portray its data caps as an issue of "fairness," where heavy data users pay more than the light ones -- but Comcast still doesn't actually cut prices for light data users. Doing something like that would have been fatal in the old days, but not now that big telecom corporations have monopolies of entire markets. Odd, also, that Comcast runs so many ads encouraging you to use a lot of data, almost like they want everyone to blow through the caps or something.
Fast-food workers all over America demonstrated for higher wages again on Tuesday, and at least one "liberal" media reporter suggests to a demonstrator that "some people say" that since paramedics don't often make $15/hour, fast-food workers shouldn't, either. The demonstrator did fine with that, but she could also have said that paramedics should be making a lot more than $15/hour, or that paramedics' low salaries don't justify paying everyone even less -- or even that "some people say" is code for "I say" and everyone in America knows it.
"Prosperity gospel" preacher at North Carolina megachurch says he'd violate Jesus's teachings if he actually said very much about his church's finances, including how much he paid for his brand new house. Some cojones he's got there, especially when earlier he said his million-dollar-plus house was "not that great of a house." So God commands preachers to keep silent about what they spend, and he couldn't have spent that much because it's "not that great of a house"? C'mon, moron, pick one.
Finally, Ben Carson discourses at length about how much "unfair" scrutiny he's getting and how little Barack Obama ever got. Those of us who tired of hearing about Jeremiah Wright every damn day for weeks on end will find that surprising, as will those of us who heard about that damn birth certificate for years on end -- as will those of us who have been sentient at any point over the last eight years. So waaaah and bullshit.
