Unbiased journalism is not pretending both sides are equally valid.

Unbiased journalism is reporting the facts even if those facts include that one side is irredeemably awful.

False neutrality is propaganda.

The normally mild-mannered Raffensperger saved his harshest language for U.S. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), who is leading the president’s effort to prove fraud in Georgia and whom Raffensperger called a “liar” and a “charlatan.” Collins has questioned Raffensperger’s handling of the vote and accused him of capitulating to Democrats by not backing allegations of voter fraud more strongly.

Which side is trying to cheat?

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Monday that he has come under increasing pressure in recent days from fellow Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), to question the validity of legally cast absentee ballots in an effort to reverse President Trump’s narrow loss in the state.

My entry into the 2020 24-hour RPG. Pretty good for being done in 24 hours, and makes me want to polish it off more.

Good morning.

There's plenty of anxiety to go around for USians, particularly today, and us USians have a tendency to make our anxieties the anxieties of the world.

Don't feel like you need to watch the spectacle. Don't feel like you're required to do some sort of penance by staying glued to the current events feeds all around you.

Have a snack. Play a game. Listen to your favorite songs. Smoke a bowl. Nap.

You and yours are more important than the spectacle.

Self care is civil defense.

"Setting up your own web services is easy", they cry, while trying to get their relatives to "open the little chat window in the corner of the screen (no, not that one Dad, that's the "share screen" which... no, not the ... no, it's really simple, you just... I'll have to restart the server because ... no, wait... why are you on the Yahoo homepage?"

Chuck Dee boosted

In case I'm being too subtle here, Adrian is 100% wrong. Running your own web service is not even close to being "trivial" and anyone who says so is lying.

Remember, no beating yourself up for doing too little! Every little bit helps 🌟 and if you weren't able to do anything, acknowledge how hard your struggle is 💙

Chuck Dee boosted

If you're not doing as much as you want or as much as necessary in the constraints placed on you, I'm sorry and you deserve ;care and support. You are not lazy or a failure--you're struggling and trying, and please believe me that the narratives you've been fed about laziness and moral failure are proven lies. The difficulty you're having does not define you as a person no matter what you might have been told.

Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA. github.com/github/dmca/blob/ma

Chuck Dee boosted

Holy shit... We went to update youtube-dl and got an error saying it couldn't find the current version.

So we went to download it manually from the site and found this.

Google fucking did a DMCA takedown to make GitHub pull youtube-dl.
