Mike's Blog Round Up
April 3, 2016

We conclude our week by taking a look at the media, and yes we must. Future historians will be using today's pundits for source material tomorrow, and that ought to keep awake any sane person in the whiskey hours of the early morning.

The Rectification of Names proves to us that fake David Brooks is infinitely more entertaining than real David Brooks…

…and speaking of The Hunting of the Snark, Susan of Texas noticed that Megan McArdle wrote another dishonest column. Shocked, am I!

Dagblog sits down with Samuel Glick.

Bonus Track: Occasional Planet wrote this as an April Fools Day post, but good satire is unbound by the calendar! Pro tip: read it while viewing the latest artwork from Darkblack will make it twice as zippy, shall we say? Yes.

Thank you for letting me be part of your week, and thanks to this week's bloggers who prove to us once again that the best, smartest, and most fun writing on the internet is often found on the smaller, less-travelled web-pages of the Left blog-o-sphere. Till next time!

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the electric Twittering machine, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
