‘Dangerous’: Milo Yiannopoulos Is Trying to Silence Us

Milo Yiannopoulos

Earlier this afternoon Jenny Kefauver at Capital HQ contacted us threatening to sue over language we used in this article about Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos published last year. With the costs of litigation being as prohibitive as they are (and seeing what Peter Thiel did to Gawker last year) we acquiesced with a caveat (in an editor’s note at the bottom of the […]

Telling It Like It Is: Trump & White Male Privilege

Donald Trump's KKK problem

Today, unfathomable as it is, Donald Trump will become President of the United States. How could this happen? Granted, Trump lost the popular vote overwhelmingly, but despite being manifestly unfit for the office, he mustered enough support from millions of Americans to win the Electoral College.

Democracy: When American Exceptionalism Isn’t Enough

American Exceptionalism - are we truly exceptional? Is Democracy safe?

A recent research report from Journalists’ Resources examined whether regulations intended to protect the environment cost jobs. The belief that such regulatory activity has a negative effect on employment has been an article of faith among conservative Republicans, yet research on the issue fails to confirm that faith– there is little evidence that environmental regulations substantially impact overall employment figures.

Breitbart Advertising Boycott Backfiring Spectacularly

Breitbart launches an attack on Kelloggs for stopping advertising.

As has been the case with literally every other boycott the embattled conservative media outlet has engaged in, the Breitbart advertiser boycott aimed at Kellogg’s is backfiring spectacularly.
