  Lee Camp: America Condemns One Violent Mob While Celebrating Another

Washington DC (ScheerPost) — Most rational Americans have correctly criticized and denounced the violent insurrection in the Capitol last week.

  “Superheroes” and “Nice” Guys: Coverage of Biden’s Hawkish Cabinet Picks is Predictably Lacking

Despite President Trump’s insistence that he, in fact, won the election, President-elect Joe Biden is already filling many of the top positions in his administration, and corporate media — who Americans rely on to stand up to state power — are in raptures over his choices.
