Bono: 'I've Grown Very Fond' of George W. Bush

Bono: 'I've Grown Very Fond' of George W. Bush

Sixteen years ago, Bono paid a visit to the White House with the goal of getting then-president George W. Bush on board with the worldwide fight against HIV/AIDS. The U2 frontman’s powers of persuasion worked: Bush launched the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) the following year, and the program has gone on to bring lifesaving drugs to many millions of people (though not without running into some controversy along the way). Tomorrow, December 1st, is World AIDS Day, and Bono stopped by The Today Show to reminisce about that partnership. The interview was conducted by...

Russiagate Trump, Putin, Mueller and Targeting Dissent

Russiagate Trump, Putin, Mueller and Targeting Dissent

Putin loves you; therefore, you love Putin. The enemy re-tweets you, therefore, you’re in league with the enemy. We’re at war with them, therefore we’re at war with you.One of the first rules of a shunning campaign is that it doesn’t have to make sense. It just has to be what everyone’s saying. Since most Americans went to high school, we tend to be instinctively familiar with the concept.The crazy inverse logic of the new national blacklist was on full display after special prosecutor in February. In the wake of this foreign meddling charge, CNN reporter Drew Griffin of an elderly female...

(Not a good look, bro.) Before security could reach the stage, Karine Jean-Pierre, MoveOn’s Chief Public Affairs Officer, bravely put herself between Harris and Cook.“I’m asking for your attention for a much bigger idea than…” Cook said into the microphone before it...

How America Lost the War on Drugs

How America Lost the War on Drugs

n the day of his death, December 2nd, 1993, the Colombian billionaire drug kingpin Pablo Escobar was on the run and living in a small, tiled-roof house in a middle-class neighborhood of Medellín, close to the soccer stadium. He died, theatrically, ridiculously, gunned down by a Colombian police manhunt squad while he tried to flee across the barrio’s rooftops, a fat, bearded man who had kicked off his flip-flops to try to outrun the bullets. The first thing the American drug agents who arrived on the scene wanted to do was to make sure that the corpse was actually Escobar’s. The second...

Can We Be Saved From the Social Media Giant?

Can We Be Saved From the Social Media Giant?

We shouldn’t be asking to fix the problem. We should be fixing Facebook. It’s our collective misfortune that this perhaps silliest-in-history supercorporation – a tossed-off hookup site turned international cat-video vault turned Orwellian surveillance megavillain – has dragged us all to the very cliff edge of modern technological capitalism.We’ve reached a moment in history where many companies are more powerful than even major industrialized nations, and in some cases have essentially replaced governments as de facto regulators and overseers. But some of those companies suck just a little...

What Does Russiagate Look Like to Russians?

Last Wednesday, former adviser to Bill and Hillary Clinton Paul Begala stepped out of his usual milquetoast centrist costume and made a chest-thumping pronouncement on CNN.“We were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power,” . “We should be debating how many sanctions we should place on , or whether we should blow up the KGB.”Begala’s is the latest in a string of comments from prominent pols and pundits  we are (or should be) in a state of war with nuclear-armed Russia.Former DNC chair Donna Brazile  this week, “The Communists are dictating the terms of the debate” – and not bothering...

Media Stupidity Is Uniting Left and Right

Media Stupidity Is Uniting Left and Right

Just a few elections ago, the national press policed the boundaries of both Democrat and Republican politics. You couldn’t sniff either party’s nomination without media assent.After more high-profile crackups, including a few over the weekend, the press might be months from being pushed all the way to the outside of a general election campaign. Having declared war on and his voters years ago, news outlets are committing to a similar pile-on of .Maybe this will end as an inspirational unity story, like Independence Day, when an invasion of gross aliens brought America together. At present,...

Trump Took Another Terrifying Step Toward Authoritarianism at His Rally in Pennsylvania

Trump Took Another Terrifying Step Toward Authoritarianism at His Rally in Pennsylvania

President traveled to Pennsylvania on Monday to stand in front of Air Force One and speak to a fired-up crowd of supporters. Some of his time onstage was spent hammering talking points, like immigration (“We don’t want people coming up here! Our country is full!”); the rest was spent rambling about whatever happened to cross his mind. The president is expected to officially launch his reelection campaign next month, for instance, and he’s been wondering about a new slogan. “Do we want Keep America Great or Make America Great Again?” he said before asking the audience to judge each option...
