NY Times Compares Textbooks, Accidentally Confesses to Bernie-Style Bias 14.1.2020 NewsBusters
Big news on the...textbook front? The front page of Monday’s New York Times was dominated by the results of education reporter Dana Goldstein’s examination of differences between history textbooks approved for California students, and those given to students in Texas: “Two States. Eight Textbooks. Two American Stories.”  This paragraph was unintentionally revealing of the paper’s Bernie Sanders-style economics bias and obsession with “inequality”: "California’s curriculum materials, by contrast, sometimes read like a brief from ...

WATCH: Michelle Williams, Best Speech Of 2020 Golden Globes 7.1.2020 Crooks Liars
Michelle Williams is expecting a baby. And last night she won a Golden Globe (best actress in a limited series) for her work in "Fosse/Verdon." She said this: When you put this [award] in someone's hands you're acknowledging the choices they make as an actor. Moment by moment, scene by scene, day by day. But you're also acknowledging the choices they make as a person. The education they pursued, the training they sought, the hours they put in. I'm grateful for the acknowledgment of the choices I've made and I'm also grateful to have lived in a moment in our society where choice exists, because as women and as girls, things can happen to our bodies that are not our choice.

Sometimes messy and scrawling, sometimes careful and precise. But one that I had carved with my own hand. And I wouldn't have been able to do ...
