by baldilocks A tad morbid, but this is something to consider, and not just with Facebook. The number of dead Facebook users could outnumber the living by 2070, leaving a vast archive of such historical importance that archivists should be brought in to conserve the data, Oxford University has said. Currently the global social media site … Continue reading We’re All Making History

by baldilocks I was just thinking about trolls; rather fondly, in fact. There are very few on my Facebook page, because I run a tight ship there.

I’ve joined a growing number of conservatives who have been censored under Facebook’s community standards. It is unclear what my crime was.

As a young reporter in 1973, I worked in Washington when the Watergate scandal started to unravel. Despite numerous comparisons to the Watergate, the Mueller investigation isn’t anything like what happened to the Nixon White House. Watergate centered on the illegal activities of Nixon and his aides while they were working for the government. The … Continue reading It Ain’t Watergate
Time to interrupt my final two Stacy McCain posts to comment a little on the issues of the day/week. There have been attacks in London and Paris this week.

There is a normal tendency, when faced with an event as vast and overwhelming as Hurricane Harvey, to, while not denying the disaster's scope, pare it down to incidents and individuals more easily managed. The person helping a person; the rescuer with a beloved pet under each arm, wading through flood waters as he or … Continue reading Of Woody Woodpecker and Natural Disasters
By John Ruberry On the Sunday after the 9/11 attacks, Jeremiah Wright, then Obama's pastor, bellowed, "God d--n America" and "America's chickens are coming home to roost" from the pulpit of his Chicago church. Two nights from now President Barack Obama will give his farewell address in Chicago, his adopted hometown. The Hawaii-born 44th president moved … Continue reading Obama’s chickens coming home to roost as he gives Chicago farewell address
Trust but verify Ronald Reagan When I read this response from Mark Zukerberg to Brent Bozell's worries about Facebook labeling news as fake: I expressed grave concern with this decision and the liberal 'fact-checking' organizations Facebook has chosen. Mr. Zuckerberg assured me that his express aim is to eliminate only patently false news stories from Facebook. … Continue reading What Facebook said to Newsbusters and What I heard
