Ok, so I’ve knocked Stan Rosenberg for his unnecessarily pissing off the house by unsuccessful calls for rule changes.
As we all know the house rules. The house runs the agenda. Tells the other boys and girls governor and senate) what games they re going to play and when. Always been that way and always will be.
With four times as many members as the senate the speaker has to run a tight ship to kept boat on course. (Like not bringing a transgender bill to the floor until he felt he had enough votes to override a veto).
This is why George Keverian failed. His kumbaya approach resulted in everyone making noise while nothing got done.
Anyway Stan has become the liberal with the bully pulpit and I think it’s great. We need this on a state level and the position of senate president maybe best fitted for it.
Contrary to the narrative Bulger gave his committee chairs much discretion and power. Just don’t cross him. But he did use his position to advocate for policies like charter schools that were years away from reality.
Okay folks, so Hulk Hogan is the named plaintiff in a suit against Gawker because it published a video of him having sex with a woman.
Forget about all the details and the he-said-she-said.
For the sake of argument let’s assume it wasn’t crazy Hulk Hogan but another celebrity, Betty White. Betty having a go with the pool boy. Good for her.
Let’s assume that someone filmed the event without her knowledge then put in Gawker’s hands and they published it.
Is this an invasion of privacy? Because it is a celebrity should this be an exception? Does the public have the right to know? The right to see for themselves?
Dan Kennedy does. He and the many other media hypocrites want to twist the facts declare the Gawker an attack on free speech.
Not only that they have a red herring to play. A third party bank rolled the lawsuit because he hates Gawker. “OH MY GOD!” They shout. “That’s Un American”
You know, like the ACLU, NAACP, Urban League, Anti-Defamation League and many other non-profit social justice organizations finance lawsuits. Who paid for Mr. Brown’s lawsuit when he went up against the board of education? Ms. Parks’ defense attorneys? Capiche?
Yet our boy Dan believes Gawker was in its rights to publish the video and third parties should not be able to finance lawsuits against media interests.
Good to see Dan’s watching out for the readers’ interests.
See what I mean folks? You can’t even talk to these people. They’re a fucking cult for crissakes. Donald Trump like. Everyone is wrong and they are the only source of truth regardless of its untruthfulness.
