    I believe the ny post had the audacity to suggest they got the false image from a "government source".

    [–] Poll: Dem opponent leads Scott Walker by 5 points AssuredlyAThrowAway 5 points ago * (lasted edited 19 hours ago) in politics

    It’s impossible to be informed if you don’t read the story.

    Ideally, this is absolutely true and should be the standard for participation in any democracy.

    The sad reality, however, is that a large portion of the electorate does not read beyond the headline but will still cast a vote nonetheless.

    Oh indeed, just pointing out how multiple outlets were the cause of that kind of speculation.

    [–] Poll: Dem opponent leads Scott Walker by 5 points AssuredlyAThrowAway 16 points ago in politics

    So journalists approach people are who aren't well known by ensuring they continue to remain unknown? Seems entirely pointless, beyond serving the interests of those who already hold the spotlight.

    While I could understand that approach in entertainment media, adopting that stance in the political realm seems to create a permanent political class with little to no chance for outside candidates to even so much as contend with their "well known" opponents.

    In that regard, such reporting seems like a direct threat to a healthy democratic republic, and is something I would think should be cautioned against in journalistic style manuals. Is the goal of good press to provide information or to get attention?

    [–] Actress Sarah Jessica Parker Freaks Out on 14-Year-Old Boy at Shoe Event AssuredlyAThrowAway 0 points ago in PublicFreakout

    Not quite, if you read to the end of the article they eventually explain the context;

    [The boy's mother] says there were no signs prohibiting photos or videos anywhere in the store. Tonia says she just thought it would be cool to have a video asking SJP about which pair to buy and thought it was harmless.

    After she went up to Derek, Tonia says Sarah kept bothering him about deleting it and questioning whether he did. Jessica-Parker then told her that it is a big deal and nobody gets a photo with her until they buy a pair of shoes.

    Tonia then decided to buy two pairs of shoes and then after the purchases, she and Derek went to take the photos with Sarah, who then became overly nice to her and Derek.

    Seems Sarah Jessica-Parker was more concerned with ensuring they didn't get a free photograph. Scummy but alas that's the American rat race I suppose :/.

    [–] /r/MCAT has been incorrectly banned; I wish to reopen it with strict adherence to reddit's copywrite policies in order to provide a resource for those studying for the MCAT. AssuredlyAThrowAway 2 points ago in redditrequest

    Seems I am indeed; just for context, the thread I was originally directed to was one which had been rejected due to the OP not meeting the karma requirement, which is why I submitted the request. I'm not sure why the redirect for the URL didn't bring up that submission you linked. My apologies.

    Please do not call for any coordinated action in relation to the individual named in the news report, per the reddit site wide TOS.

    [–] Racist pig attacks hotel worker AssuredlyAThrowAway 0 points ago in PublicFreakout

    like what happened when Reddit decided to play FBI during the Boston Marathon bombing fiasco and doxxed numerous people who had nothing to do with the attack

    Those damn redditors and their false witch hunt against innocent people!-

    Also, boilerplate warning incoming;

    On reddit the nature of private persons is such that, pursuant to standing precedent, information such as their name may only be spread once they are identified in a "press outlet of good repute" (the wording of the admins, not the mod team). As a press outlet of good repute has yet to identify this racist asshole individual, not even his name can be posed as of this point.

    That said; even after a person is identified in a press outlet of good repute (which may occur in this instance), please avoid posting information such as home phone numbers, home addresses, the schools of said person's children, bank account information, or any information beyond the person's name. That behavior is always a violation of the reddit site wide TOS, regardless as to if the person has been identified, and comments of that nature will be removed and reported to the site administrators.

    Thank you for your attention to this important boiler plate warning.

    Update; the individual in question has been identified in the press. Please heed the above warning and do not post information beyond his name on the suibreddit-

    [–] Racist pig attacks hotel worker AssuredlyAThrowAway 11 points ago in PublicFreakout

    Its a site wide rule on reddit which the site admins require moderators to enforce; the name of a private person can be posted only after they are identified by a press outlet "of good repute" (the admins wording, not mine).

    No worries, just glad to hear the guy is in jail after that assault.

    [–] Racist pig attacks hotel worker AssuredlyAThrowAway -1 points ago in PublicFreakout

    Hey OP, had to take down the FB link as some of the comments were trying to identify the person. If a news report is published about the incident that would be more than acceptable to post.

    [–] What the Capuano-Pressley Primary Says About Boston AssuredlyAThrowAway -2 points ago in boston

    Oh for sure, the dems should have known they needed an economist populist (and perhaps some of the party establishment saw the writing on the wall), but the Clinton machine really did hijack the entire party and handed the election to Trump. Hopefully the change to super delegates (they no longer are allowed to vote on the first ballot) will ensure that horrific mistake is not repeated in 2020.

    [–] Head Coach has an honest but controlled freakout in press conference AssuredlyAThrowAway 47 points ago in PublicFreakout

    That was really well handled (in particular if the club did not inform him of the transfer before it happened), and shutting down the club press agent was hilarious.

    [–] What the Capuano-Pressley Primary Says About Boston AssuredlyAThrowAway 5 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in boston

    Very true (in particular if they supported her from the outset), but I guess I'm not willing to say its impossible for a progressive to have endorsed Hillary after the primaries ended. I would have preferred those progressives have taken a stand against what the DNC did to undermine that process, but when even Bernie and Sen. Warren were willing to endorse Hildog I got the sense they were willing to set that aside out of fear of a Trump win (which I think it a valid reason in hindsight, although I personally would not have done so).

    That said, I believe both Capuano and Pressley were fighting for team hildog from day 1 of the primaries, so they can't really invoke that defense in good faith heh.

    [–] What the Capuano-Pressley Primary Says About Boston AssuredlyAThrowAway 28 points ago in boston

    I just find it hard to buy into this claim that she's a progressive taking down an establishment dem when they both supported Hillary in 2016. I guess after watching the debate with Jim Braude on GBH it seemed they both held very similar positions on the issues, but Capuano also has the benefit of seniority and such (which gives his platform for those progressives views far more impact).

    I also thought it was weird that Presley said advocating a single payer system was hypocritical in 2016, but has now adopted that as her platform. She seems quite plastic in some ways.
