Orange man isn't the only one...

Quote:
Last year, the chair of the Republican caucus in Washington's state legislature acknowledged that he had written a manifesto on the “Biblical Basis for War.” In that document, the lawmaker argued that – as far as Jesus Christ was concerned – American Christians have the right to “kill all males” who support abortion, same-sex marriage or communism (so long as they first give such infidels the opportunity to renounce their heresies).

An interesting read...

Artificial Morality
By Bruce Sterling

“The Future of the Future: The Ethics and Implications of AI” conference.
Quote:
It’s like the ethical difference between being two parish priests and becoming Pope.
Of course the actual Pope will confront Artificial Intelligence. His response will not be “is it socially beneficial to the user-base?” but rather, “does it serve God?” So unless you’re willing to morally out-rank the Pope, you need to understand that religious leaders will use Artificial Intelligence in precisely the way that televangelists have used television.

Pretty good write-up (five pages) on George Patton, immediately-post-war til his death, over at National Interest.

My ancient version of FireFox didn't love the site. It worked, just pretty laggy.

Media Bias

Quote:
Introduction
Unbiased political media coverage is vital for a healthy democracy (1). Most Americans want their news free from political bias; indeed, a dominant majority (78%) of Americans believe that it is never acceptable for a news organization to favor one political party over another when reporting the news (2). Journalists hold strong norms to eschew bias in their coverage of politics (3). However, when asked about the coverage of news organizations in America less than half can identify a source that they believe reports the news objectively, less than 30% trust the media to get the facts straight, and less than 20% trust the media to report the news without bias (4). Since 1989, the number of Americans stating that there is a great deal of bias in news coverage has nearly doubled (4).

Simply put, many Americans believe that the news media do a poor job of separating facts from opinion (4). With the strong influence that the media exerts on citizens (5–7), the increased salience of fake news (8–10), and “unprecedented” levels of violence against journalists (11), understanding the potential biases of the media is vital. Ideological bias is central to the concerns that Americans harbor about the news media. Concerns about liberal media bias are widespread. Many Americans believe liberal media bias is prevalent and pernicious.
According a 2017 Gallup poll, 64% of Americans believe the media favors the Democratic Party (compared to 22% who said they believed it favored the Republican Party). Indeed, consternation over the liberal bias in the mainstream media runs rampant— making its way into commentary of the state of the news media from political pundits (12) and academics (13), into too many social media discussions to even begin to mention, and even into the stages of presidential debates and townhalls.
There are reasons to expect that this perspective may comport with reality. Some evidence suggests that journalists have more liberal views than the general public (14). Given this, we might expect political ideology to fundamentally shape journalists’ views about what is and is not newsworthy (15). Yet, it is also possible that the public perceives ideological bias because they are psychologically motivated to see bias in the news (16).

TL;DR:

Even though the ideology of journalists looks like this (from the study):



...journalists of every stripe are writing about both Trump and AOC

So there is NO LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS

...in the news political journalists choose to cover.

Kids, are they lying more than they used to, or maybe less than they used to?
They have been doing these polls for years, I assume they're anonymous questionnaires, but who knows what information is
gathered only that it hasn't ever been revealed. Kids today know about data breaches and how fast shit travels on the net which
makes participation in this a little more intimidating.
