Mike's Blog Round Up

Today we say welcome back to our longtime friend His Vorpal Sword who has returned to blogging and we say goodbye to Gawker.

Badtux the Snarky Penguin offers a suggestion.

Infidel753 reminds us that there are more of us than there are of them. Phew! (Also happy 10th blog-o-versary!)

PoliticsUSA proves to us that sometimes there are second acts in American Politics. Wish there weren't.

His Vorpal Sword will not miss Gawker, and presents a master-class in journalism ethics.

Bonus Track: Nick Denton gives all of us bloggers an object-lesson in hubris if not How Things Work as the last post ever at Gawker. Whether you loved or hated that site, this elegiac, long-format post is worthy of reading. With a critical eye.

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

Can you help us out?

For 16 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit. We work 7 days a week, 16 hours a day for our labor of love, but with rising hosting and associated costs, we need your help! Could you donate $20 for 2020? Please consider a one time or recurring donation of whatever amount you can spare, or consider subscribing for an ad-free experience. It will be greatly appreciated and help us continue our mission of exposing the real FAKE NEWS!
