On Steve Rogers #1, Antisemitism, and Publicity Stunts

On Steve Rogers #1, Antisemitism, and Publicity Stunts
Yes. "Steve Rogers has stood in opposition to tyranny, prejudice, and genocide. While other characters have their backstories rolled up behind them as the decades march on to keep them young and relevant, Cap is never removed from his original context. He can’t be. To do so would empty the character of all meaning. But yesterday, that’s what Marvel did. Look, this isn’t my first rodeo. I know how comics work. He’s a Skrull, or a triple agent, or these are implanted memories, or it’s a time travel switcheroo, or, or, or. There’s a thousand ways Marvel can undo this reveal—and they will, of course, because they’re not about to just throw away a multi-billion dollar piece of IP. Steve Rogers is not going to stay Hydra any more than Superman stayed dead."

Audio Shows Katie Couric Gun Documentary Deceptively Edited Interview with Pro-Gun Activists
Always record an interview you are part of. Always. "However, raw audio of the interview between Katie Couric and the activists provided to the Washington Free Beacon shows the scene was deceptively edited. Instead of silence, Couric’s question is met immediately with answers from the activists. A back and forth between a number of the league’s members and Couric over the issue of background checks proceeds for more than four minutes after the original question is asked."

Once again, college administrators and students make Milo look like the adult in the room. When you have to resort to shouting down someone, you have lost the argument, no matter how the other side is.

"When the paper disagrees with criticism of a candidate, it is portrayed as an attack by political opponents. When the paper agrees with the criticism, the criticism becomes a mysterious and disembodied (but ever-growing) entity."
