As I've been saying since it started, Bojack Horseman is one of the most consequential and riveting shows ever. And totally entertaining. People can't seem to accept that a cartoon could be all that. It can. The first half of the sixth season is on Netflix tonight. #
I feel sorry for Richard Engel on MSNBC. His reporting from Syria raises a question that his colleagues in the US don't want to discuss. Russia moving in to take over from the US is no accident, it was the plan. In America for some reason they don't want to incorporate the obvious fact that Trump works for Russia, not for the United States. Over and over, for years, they pretend they don't know this. Why?#
I'd like to put down a bet. Another scandal will come out that has a cash quid pro quo. #
Reporting on the demonstration put on by Republican House members yesterday, CNN repeated the claim that Repubs were being denied entry to the Shiff hearings. This is why the Repubs do these stunts, because journalism doesn't report the news in a realistic way. The technically correct lead-in would be: Repubs put on a dishonest demo, trying to attract naive press coverage. Now would be a good time to change the game with Repubs, because they don't have a choice but to accept reasonable rules re lies.#
On Facebook I saw Trump referred to as dear leader and my mind read drug dealer. It really happened, I'm not making this up. 🍌#
I'm glad to hear that Amy Klobuchar has qualified for the next Democratic debate. I want a candidate that everyone can get behind and that includes Republicans and former Obama voters who voted for Trump. We need a president who wins in a landslide, takes both houses, and someone who knows how to get things done in our political system. When we've elected "outsiders" the results have never been good for us. But Klobuchar's confidence isn't there yet. Warren has it, as does Sanders, but neither has the ability to govern with the full support of most Americans. We have to think clearly about how our political system will work after Trump. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
