Faux News Can Legally Lie... Go Figure!!

"During their appeal, FOX asserted that there are no written rules against distorting news in the media. They argued that, under the First Amendment, broadcasters have the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on public airwaves. Fox attorneys did not dispute Akre’s claim that they pressured her to broadcast a false story, they simply maintained that it was their right to do so. After the appeal verdict WTVT general manager Bob Linger commented, “It’s vindication for WTVT, and we’re very pleased… It’s the case we’ve been making for two years. She never had a legal claim.”

The Chewbacca Bat is a recently described species that was found living in the remote jungles of Mozambique. It does look stunningly similar to the Star Wars character!

Well said.
 
I met Neil Armstrong once, at a dinner to honor Jimmy Doohan in the early 2000s.

He was not much taller than me, but he was a giant of a man.

I don't remember what I said to him, or what he said to me, because all I could think the entire time was "This man has walked on the fucking moon."

Rest in peace, Neil. Because of your bravery and your courage, an entire species will forever look into the night sky and see not a mystery, but a destination.

Just about every problem in our country can be traced back to money in politics.

The Avengers

Came across this and I thought to my self "Self this is a pretty damn fine piece of digital gifness" and then I sat and soaked in the awesomness of inventing a new word. Sadly though I do not think Oxford or Websters is ready for the "gifness" which is sad if you take a moment to ponder it. On plus side #avengers ...so yeah.

FROM A DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR EMAIL:

Unfortunately, with multiple tragic events this past week, there are already multiple scams appearing.  The following is taken from a DOI Computer Incident Response Center (DOICIRC) notice regarding scams exploiting the Boston Marathon Explosion:

Malicious actors are exploiting the April 15 explosions at the Boston Marathon in attempts to collect money intended for charities and to spread malicious code. Fake websites and social networking accounts have been set up to take advantage of those interested in learning more details about the explosions or looking to contribute to fundraising efforts.              
For example, the Twitter account @_BostonMarathon was created shortly after the explosions took place. The account stated it would donate $1 for each retweet and was crafted to closely resemble the legitimate Boston Marathon Twitter account (@BostonMarathon). This account has since been suspended by Twitter; however, the likelihood that similar social media accounts will surface remains high.
Phishing email campaigns are also circulating using subject lines related to the Boston Marathon explosions. Do not open unexpected attachments or click on links in suspicious emails, even if the email appears to be from someone you know.
Several unregistered charities were also suddenly created on social networking sites claiming to be collecting money for the victims. If you're giving, do your homework first.  Know who you are giving to and know where your money is going.
Give to established, registered charities, and if you're giving through the Internet, make sure the website is legitimate and secure.  A lot of times, fake sites may look real, but if you look closely, the website address is slightly off.

US-CERT recommends that all persons interested in donating funds should go directly to established charities such as the American Red Cross. Exercise caution when interacting with social media accounts that claim to represent the best interests of those involved in the incident, and directly visit established news sources rather than conducting general search engine queries, as it can be difficult to tell which search results may lead to scam sites.
