As anti-brutality protests fill streets of American cities, netizens cram police app with K-Pop, airwaves with NWA

quote [ Police asked the public to upload videos of protesters via its iWatch Dallas mobile app. Instead, netizens flooded the service with videos of South Korean K-Pop performers. Police were forced to take down the app. ]

"On Saturday night, a mischief-maker broadcast over the frequency Chicago police were using for communications, blaring out the classic NWA track F*ck the police." I think some Sting would have been a funnier choice.

Afghan Papers Inadvertently Document WaPo’s Role in Spreading Official Lies

quote [ If the Post is now publishing material demonstrating that US officials have been ?following the same talking points for 18 years,? emphasizing how they are ?making progress,? ?especially? when the war is ?going badly,? shouldn?t the paper acknowledge that it has been cheerleading this same line for all of those 18 years? Doesn?t it have a responsibility to examine how it served as a primary vehicle for those officials to spread these same ?talking points? to spin the coverage in the desired fashion? ]

After 18 Years of US Occupation, Poll Finds Zero Percent of Afghans Thriving, 85 Percent "Suffering"

Already seeing plenty of headlines, social media posts, and memes trying to demonize Iran in the same way we do every other country the US sticks their nose into. Even saw a WMD style accusation floating around. I should hope those on the "left" remember that we're against war because it's wrong, not because Trump didn't get authorization or some legalese bullshit... but I don't have my hopes up.
