"Reza Aslan, a religious scholar with a Ph.D. in the sociology of religions from the University of California and author of the new book, “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth,” went on FoxNews.com’s online show Spirited Debate to promote his book only to be prodded about why a Muslim would write a historical book about Jesus." #funny #interviews #ad_hominems #awful #cringeworthy #pub
My god. Sites like and especially Business Insider continue to just push out such garbage content. I mean seriously!? It talks about Vox.com...the main site of the company...Vox...a site built around only getting traffic. Just like Deadspin and Gawker sites. Grantland and FiveThirtyEight are not like that at all...they are actually good, most of the time. Not a fraction of the time. They aren't Business Insider and all that clickbait/linkbait pandering shiz. #!evidence #!trends #!research #!patterns #linkbait #weak_article #pandering #awful #ignorant_to_a_fault #bad_job #bad_journalism #pub
Give no proper concrete with backing reason for why to wait or not wait on Shopify. Yes, there's a possibility that it could go down further. But it's also equally possible that it could jump $10 in next few weeks before some bullshit news has it drop below where it is today. This article is such surface level shit. Come on. #awful #bad_journalism #pub
"TRUMP: "Puerto Rico got 91 Billion Dollars for the hurricane, more money than has ever been gotten for a hurricane before." HOGAN GIDLEY, White House spokesman: "The fact is, they have received more money than any state or territory in history for a rebuild." - interview Tuesday with MSNBC. THE FACTS: The money Puerto Rico has received for hurricane relief is nowhere close to $91 billion. Nor is the amount provided greater than for any other hurricane that has struck the U.S. According to the White House, Trump's $91 billion estimate includes about $50 billion in expected future disaster disbursements that could span decades, along with $41 billion already approved. But actual aid to Puerto Rico has flowed more slowly from federal coffers, about $11 billion so far. Even if the $91 billion figure eventually comes to fruition, it would not be the most ever provided for hurricane rebuilding efforts. Hurricane Katrina, which hit Louisiana and other Gulf Coast states in 2005, has cost the U.S government more than $120 billion." #trumpisms #awful #trump #trump_brazenly_lying #pub
This is one of the worst pieces I’ve read. Acting like either party has ever been truly rebelious and not usually going for the status quo. IE the south in civil war wanted their slavery status quo. And then to act like the republicans of today are the rebels trying to upend things. the tea party is funded by billionaires who want the status quo! #awful #politics #wrong #status_quo #pub
Bad journalism. Even if opinion. Even while trying to spin things for We[Work], they still end up saying the valuation makes no sense since they'll never be able to get to $5B+ in revenue realistically any time soon. And without 40%+ growth avg per year for the next 5 years, the company can't really qualify for even a $20B valuation, so how is it going to qualify for a $35B valuation? Sad because SoftBank, Venture Fund, and Masayoshi Son would be cool to root for. But the billions plowed into this was so dumb. And now Uber is costing them possibly billions as well for now. #awful #bad_journalism #pub
