Fox News is a dangerous state propaganda outlet. Sarah Sanders’ job confirms that | Nathan Robinson

What hope is there for the truth when the press and the state are one and the same? The only surprising thing about Sarah Sanders joining Fox News was that it took this long. The former Trump press secretary is a perfect fit for the network, a faithful and shameless propagandist for the right. It would have been shocking if shed ended up anywhere other than here she is claiming Trump would never incite or condone violence: I certainly dont think that the president, at any point, has done anything but condemn violence against journalists or anyone else In fact, every single time something like this happens, the president is typically one of the first people to condemn the violence, …

Its Not Your Fault You Feel Unappreciated

Holly Riordan Updated August 21, 2019 By Mike Palmowski When you feel unappreciated, you shouldn’t automatically blame yourself. If you’ve been working your ass off, it’s not your fault if no one takes notice. If you’ve been doing your best, it’s not your fault if people still believe you aren’t doing good enough. You have to stop searching for validation from outside sources and start making a habit out of congratulating yourself. You might not get the recognition you deserve — but you shouldn’t let that convince you to put less effort into your pursuits. You shouldn’t care too much about what other people think of you. You should only care about how your accomplishments make feel. You should only care …

An Ode To The Scorpio Women

Tylyn Taylor Updated August 27, 2019 By Lola Russian Scorpio women like me can be great actors. We can size up men within minutes of having conversation, or with one look from across the bar. We know exactly the kind of woman you want us to be after our name dances off your lips. And sometimes I give in and I play the game. Blame it on my loneliness, or boredom. Or maybe it’s my insatiable desire to see if there’s anything deeper lurking beneath that sweet smile. I can’t help it, the galaxy created me this way. So, we can just blame it on the stars.

Domingo and his co-stars in a concert of Verdi’s tragic opera “Luisa Miller” all shared in 10 minutes of applause at the end of the show ― but a standing ovation at the start of the show was for the 78-year-old opera legend alone. The singers walked out single file and the applause intensified as Domingo, second to last, appeared from behind the curtain, growing to a crescendo until most of the house was on its feet. The Domingo accusations have divided the opera world. Two U.S. opera houses immediately canceled planned appearances. European opera houses have so far confirmed engagements scheduled through November 2020, in what some see as an effort to slow a perceived rush to judgment in …
