Mike's Blog Round Up
June 8, 2016

As we write this on Tuesday, California and the other five states have not voted yet, and we note with some outrage that the AP and other media outlets have already declared a presumptive Democratic nominee a full day ahead of the election. We hope that this act of media malpractice does not discourage the vote in those states, as there are down-ticket contests, and this is how Y’all Qaeda gets on the school board.

But, on the bright side: Marco Rubio has finally won a primary!

US Uncut gives us the run-down of what the AP did. (And here's our own John Amato's take published yesterday.)

First Draft urges us to move on.

E'Ville Times plans to do something with stinky cheese.

Bonus Track: Motherboard proves to us that computers can be beautiful.

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).
