Journalists should stop interviewing Kellyanne Conway

by Mark Frauenfelder
ereed

Jay said the same thing yesterday. If CNN can't run a life press conference in order to fact-check before airing, she is equally as useless.

I love this idea - the media should stop interviewing Trump spokesperson Kellyanne Conway. Almost nothing she says is true or useful. It's entertaining on some level, but it's easier to find better entertainment elsewhere.

“The logic is, this is a representative of the president,” [journalism professor Jay] Rosen said. “This is somebody who can speak for the Trump administration. But if we find that what Kellyanne Conway says is routinely or easily contradicted by Donald Trump, then that rationale disappears.”

“Another reason to interview Kellyanne Conway is, our viewers want to understand how the Trump world thinks,” he added. “But if the end result of an interview is more confusion about what the Trump world thinks, then that rationale evaporates.”

How many metro rides were taken during Women's March Vs Trump inauguration

by Mark Frauenfelder
ereed

570k is larger than 1mm, PERIOD.

1,001,616 paid rides were taken on the DC Metro on the day of the Women's March on Washington. Compare that to 570,557 rides taken on the day Trump was sworn into office, which is even less than the number of rides taken on the average weekday.

Posters for Saturday's women's marches

by Cory Doctorow

Andrea Aidekman writes, "I'm a cartoonist and graphic designer from New York. I was asked by a few friends to make some posters for the women's marches on Saturday. I made this little vagina/eye logo and I really got on a roll and designed 10 posters. I want everyone to have a chance to have a well designed and provocative poster so if you need one you can download and print your favorite, or all of them!" (more…)

Trump running Facebook ads asking people to attend inauguration

by Rob Beschizza

Hahahaha! Ass. However he will say it was the largest ever. He had a paltry turnout for the Lincoln concer and tweeted it was yuuuuuugest ever.

We knew President-elect Donald Trump was having trouble finding acts willing to perform at his inauguration, but now we know he's worried about public turnout too. How? Because he's running Facebook ads begging New Yorkers to attend. (more…)

It's gotta be the coffee, donuts, rinse down and repeat routine. That's my running theory right now. Okay, not actually though. Clearly their social media game is on lock. Just cause these law-enforcing, pistol-slingin bros rep the badge don't in any way imply they can't rock the shit out of some innocent, chuckleworthy humor. Seriously though. Some of these posts from the Oconee County Georgia Sheriff's Office are greatness.

Aw. She was my fave Guinness record holder story!

Vesna Vulović was a JAT Yugoslav Airlines flight attendant when her plane exploded mid-air in 1972, sending her hurtling toward earth in the tail of the aircraft. Her miraculous survival remains the record height for surviving a freefall without a parachute. (more…)

Man, if I ran Twitter I'd totes mess with his account. I mean, it IS the reason he can bypass the pesky press.
