A number of years ago, the menace of "bullying" was all the rage, although it was never clear whether NPR was so worked up over it because they'd gotten a memo from the Obama Administration or whether the Obama Administration was sending out memos because they all listened to NPR.

I don't see any vote totals yet, but everybody is talking about Macron first, Le Pen second moving into the second round in two weeks. It's really not that hard to show anti-First Amendment rioters that the rule of law in the state of Alabama does not allow masked people to loiter in public.

Ideologically, France remains the second or third most important country in the world after the U.S. and perhaps Britain because of, among other reasons, the lucidity of French prose, the fame of its history (for example, I could give you a rough outline off the top of my head of the history of France since...

This New York Times article below is a good example of the barely existent distinction between outright Fake News versus The Narrative.
