Hooray for RT UK!

Comment: SOTT ran this piece by Clark over three years ago. As you can see, it is slightly tongue-in-cheek, so we put it in "Don't Panic, Lighten Up!" But since that time, this have gotten a whole lot more serious, with the full-on attack on RT from American authorities - and Clark demonstrates why RT is such a valuable source of real news. Russia Insider has a note about Clark:
The author is a well-known UK pundit who writes frequently on Russia. He is currently running a crowdfunding to raise money to fund his legal costs for his court case against Oliver Kamm, a writer for the Times newspaper, who he has sued for libel and harassment. If you like this article, please consider supporting this writer. He is one of the best out there on Russia.

As RT UK launches, attacks on the channel in the British media have stepped up...

The latest is a piece by Mr. Cyril Waugh-Monger, a very important newspaper columnist for the NeoCon Daily, a patron of the Senator Joe McCarthy Appreciation Society and author of 'Why the Iraq War was a Brilliant Idea' and 'The Humanitarian Case for Bombing Syria.'

Dear socially inferior person reading this article. My name is Cyril Waugh-Monger (I'm called 'Mr Terribly Pompous Neo-Con' by my friends) and I'm here to tell you why on no account should you watch RT and why you should be making complaints to Ofcom about this dreadful channel so that in the interests of 'free speech' and 'democracy' we can get it off air.

1. RT doesn't peddle Russophobia

Outrageously, RT doesn't compare Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler. It doesn't join in with the demonization of Russia and its leader. How can we have a channel which is watched by people in Britain, which doesn't do that? We neocons say that demonization of Russia and its leader is compulsory. How dare RT not do as we say!

Comment: Keep watching the MSM!

Millenial Job Interview

A quick look at how a modern job interview with a millennial might go down.

Bacon

Remember that time PETA tried to guilt people on Twitter for eating bacon, but it backfired?

PETA's concern for the well-being of animals extends to how animals are treated by the food industry, and also just the general idea of eating animals. So when the animal rights group asked for feedback on the "best" reason for eating bacon, people could smell a trap easily enough.
PETA bacon tweet
The glowing reviews for bacon started rolling in.

Comment: Try as they might, the Vegan fascists will never be able to pry the bacon from the hands of the general public. It's just too good! And it's good for you! And apparently it also makes a handy weapon, in a pinch: 86-year-old woman beats off robber with a package of bacon

Former prime minister's office inundated with small bottles of poison

THE office of former British prime minister Tony Blair has urged people to stop posting in small bottles of poison, as there is no more room left after several tonnes of various types of deadly liquids have been delivered in the post over the past two days.

Over 40,000 parcels were handled by staff at the 64-year-old's business address in London, the senders spurred on by news on Wednesday that Bosnian-Croat warlord, Slobodan Praljak, downed an unknown substance moments after his 20-year sentence for war crimes was upheld. Praljak died shortly afterwards.

"Seriously, if Tony was to kill himself, it would be fast and painless," a spokesperson rightfully pointed out, "and anyway, if he was ever convicted of war crimes, he wouldn't get anywhere near a 20-year sentence - Tony is way too wealthy and British for that kind of thing to happen to him in this day and age".

"So as weird as it is to say, in his own racially offensive way, Donald Trump was being woke. Yeah, and that's unfortunately the truth," Noah said.
"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah on Tuesday criticized Sen. Elizabeth Warren for claiming to be of Native American heritage, which he acknowledged is "problematic."

The controversy over the Massachusetts Democratic's heritage was resurrected this week after Trump brought back his "Pocahontas" nickname for her during a White House ceremony honoring Navajo code talkers. Warren slammed Trump for his comments, calling him "truly disgusting" and saying he'd used a "racial slur."

Pictorial evidence that kids are comic geniuses

Kids say and do the darndest things, and sometimes when they're technically wrong, they can still be right on so many levels.

You can almost feel what a handful some of these hilarious little smart-alecks are. Good luck to their moms and dads!

To be honest, I think "Bob" and "Sam" sound much more fun than "square" or "rhombus."

Finland's national television and radio company Yle has come under heavy scrutiny for violating journalistic ethical guidelines for its notorious piece about "battle moose" the Red Army allegedly trained during WW2.

Finland's Council for Mass Media (JSN) claimed national broadcaster Yle violated a number of paragraphs of the Journalist Ethical Rules when it published an article about the Soviet Union allegedly training "combat moose" to attack the enemy.

A review of the story revealed that Yle's controversial article was based on an April Fool's joke published in Russian media in 2010. Not only did Yle fail to make corresponding remarks about it in the text, as required by the ethical rules, but it also used manipulated images to illustrate the story.

Educational exercise: A meteor struck the grounds of a school in Northern Ireland

Meteor
When the children of Castle Gardens Primary School, in County Down, Northern Ireland, came traipsing to school on Monday morning, they found a scene of devastation in the playground. Trees were wrecked. Asphalt was torn up. The police service were on hand, in emergency-response mode. There, in the middle of the yard, was a smoking bundle from outer space: a meteorite.
