At least 16 articles claimed or suggested women would be jailed for having abortions, even though the laws’ text is available for all to read, and specifies women will not face prosecution.
It looks like Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi, one of the few liberal journalists who has been skeptical about the now-discredited Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory over the years, is about to lose even more friends over his harsh critique of the press in light of the Mueller Report findings.

In an effort to stick it religious conservatives, Magnolia Pictures is premiering their new documentary on the Satanic Temple, Hail Satan? in Los Angeles on Good Friday. Hail Satan? chronicles the Satanic Temple members’ fight for “religious freedom” against organized religion.
Although the progressives at Rolling Stone offered their condolences to the French in the wake of Notre Dame’s Monday fire, they pondered whether the devastation of the 900-year-old Cathedral opens up the possibility of reincarnating the structure as a monument to the secular “modern France;” because heaven forbid a progressive society rebuild a symbol to “non-secular, white European France.”

The proggies in the music business have just rolled out a lefty-themed music album that will be available for streaming prior to midterm voting.

Even Rolling Stone is skeptical about the veracity of Tom Arnold and his claims about the Trump tapes that never seem to materialize. When even Rolling Stone thinks you are doing too many drugs that means you are probably named Tom Arnold.

In light of the recent accusations against Les Moonves, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver found it his duty to address workplace harassment and to help resurrect an old liberal hero. On his July 29 show, after giving his own thoughts about sexual harassment, Oliver turned to the person he said “kickstarted” the conversation about workplace harassment back in the 90s; this was none other than Anita Hill who accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment after he was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1991.
