A plurality of Americans think Trump's guilty verdict was correct but believe the hush money trial was politically motivated, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds. -- ABC

Oh, for fuck's sake. Politically motivated, my ass. You know what was politically motivated? Trump's business records fraud to keep news of his tryst with Stormy Daniels from sinking his 2016 Presidential campaign. https://breaking.iavian.net/article/365648

Trump's sentencing is July 11. Four days before the Republican National Convention.

Justice says he believes that the wants him to repeat a significant portion of the .

He will read pages 6-35.

Each page yesterday took him just a little more than a minute, so this will take >30 mins.

Between that & the testimony readbacks, also expected to take >30 mins, there will likely be >1 hour this morning w/the jury in the courtroom, not actively deliberating.

    @GottaLaff Oh, for fuck's sake. War crimes are war crimes. Crimes against humanity are crimes against humanity. As an American who supports Israel, I am beyond fucking tired of the attitude that American and Israeli leaders can do no wrong and should not be held to the same standards as everyone else.

    @GottaLaff I'm gonna vote for him no matter what, but he's engaging as dishonestly with the subject as any Republican would. Netanyahu != Israel, and a good leader would find a way to make that clear. Republicans are going to criticize him no matter what he does, so he may as well do the right thing.

    We’re letting Trump distract us from his corrupt, anti-climate agenda

    Donald Trump sat down with oil executives and told them that if he wins, he’ll scrap a slew of President Biden’s clean energy and other environmental regulations they don’t like
    — as long as they raise $1 billion for him.

    The response? Crickets.

    Trump’s pay-for-play move was frequently described as
    ⭐️ “transactional.” The right word is
    🔥“corrupt.”

    Last weekend, at a rally in Wildwood, N.J., he pledged to halt offshore wind farms.
    All of them.
    Right away.
    “We are going to make sure that that ends on day one,” Trump said.
    “I’m going to write it out in an executive order.”

    It was consistent with a remarkable statement he was reported to have made to the energy execs:
    👉 “I hate wind.”

    No investigative reporting is required to see what Trump would do.

    His campaign website goes on and on about how he would “stop all Joe Biden policies that distort energy markets,” describing the president’s approach as “industry-killing, jobs-killing, pro-China and anti-American.”
    👉The right’s propensity to deny climate change runs so deep that in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis and his fellow Republicans in the legislature have written their denial into law.

    Last week, as Anna Phillips reported in The Post, DeSantis signed a bill that removes most references to climate change in state laws and, for good measure, bans offshore wind turbines in state waters and weakens natural gas pipeline regulation.

    @cdarwin The problem is that SCOTUS, along with the many other gifts it has given us over the years, has made it almost impossible to convict someone for public corruption. Just Security had an article about this in April: https://www.justsecurity.org/94515/supreme-court-public-corruption-ethics/

    There’s a new playbook being written right now when it comes to the future of social media. The early-mover advantage is still in effect, and there’s a lot to figure out. Gone are opaque algorithms and the whims of any single company.

    The fediverse represents a chance for quality journalism to shine again.

    We talked to two leaders at fedi-forward publications — @TheConversationUS's @BostonAbrams, and @404mediaco's @jasonkoebler — about why they’re investing in the open social web, what they’ve learned so far, and their advice for other publishers just getting started.

    @rticks
    I have questions: 1) What does Item 1 look like? For example, we could change the tax code to more strongly benefit nonprofits and the donors/subscribers who support them, but what else? 2) Who would do the ratings, and what are the odds that if it's, say, academics, that MAGAts would take the ratings seriously? 3) Re Item 4, when you say that politicians should "phase out" Agenda journalism, do you mean no longer talk to those outlets, or what? Thanks!

    @arstechnica So they've been warned about possible (read: likely) problems with their legislation, and they're passing it anyway. This is why you should never elect Republicans.

    Whenever I'm doing in-depth research for a piece of journalism, I always re-discover the amazing quality of nonfiction books

    A good nonfiction book is the most information-rich/dense piece of media on the planet

    The qualifier "good" being crucial here, bien sur

    But if it is good? Holy crap

    You hold in your hands the product of someone who spent years exploring a subject, and sifting for the absolute best data/stories

    Nothing -- no documentary, magazine piece, white paper -- can compare

    @clive Can vouch. Both chock-full of solid science and very engagingly written. Also a little sickening in places; for example, he devotes an entire chapter to how the Nazis developed artificial butter from ... coal.
