    The Incompetent New York Times Can’t Get Anything Right

    John Hinderaker
    Apr. 1, 2017

    On Thursday, the New York Times published an article on a vote in the Senate that was headlined: “Senate Lets States Defund Clinics That Perform Abortions.” The article, by Jennifer Steinhauer, bitterly described how a measure under the Congressional Review Act passed the Senate, with a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence. A reader pointed out that a correction in yesterday’s Times admitted that the reporter (and any editor who may have read the piece prior to publication) lack a high-school level knowledge of the Constitution:

    The New York Times has become a bad joke.

    They surely do. One of the lessons of the accelerated polarization we're seeing is that most people will believe anything bad about the other team, and anything good about their team, no matter how absurd.

    U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley Says Russia
    So the Trump White House officially stopped denying Russian meddling in the elections. Now, to move the goalposts!

    It must be sad being a diehard Trump partisan. Constantly bearing false witness for your boss, knowing he'll throw you under the bus when it's time to change the story.
    Sort of like all the Putin fans absolutely denying Russian role in Crimean "referendum". They did it up until the moment Putin himself admitted Russian military was involved (after denying it a week prior), in a big-budget propaganda documentary shown on Russia's biggest network. Awkward!

    Приветствую! (Greetings!) There are about 40,000 Afro-Russians. I knew about Alexander Pushkin, the famous poet, but modern Afro-Russians are new to me. Brief history and list of well-known Afro-Russians here:

    I'd not find that comforting if I had African heritage. People of Ukrainian heritage are quite numerous in Russia, as are ethnic Russians in Ukraine. Yet, we are at war. Russia has 4 neighbors that share Eastern Orthodox faith with Russia (Moldova, Georgia, Ukraine, and Belarus). Russia fueled violence or outright invaded 3 of them; Belarus should worry even despite its status as almost a Russian puppet state. Russian ideology sees commonality of culture as invitation to meddle or subdue.

    Moldova is a Russian neighbor? I guess Transnistria went ahead and go itself annexed?

    The term is "near abroad" (blizhneye zarubezh'ye), and it's a term for all post-Soviet states. To Russia, they are somewhere between neighbours and insolent colonies. And Transnistria is a Russian puppet - they wouldn't be more controlled by Russia if they did get themselves annexed.
