An Easter Edition.

Riddled: Chocolate Bunnymas 2021.

WordPress cuts off its nose to spite its face:

WordPress has decided to discontinue the “classic editor” unless I pay them for it. I can’t do this “new” editor. It doesn’t work at all for me.
I will update you with a link when I know where I am moving.
Goodbye, WordPress.com.

Badtux is not the first to complain. Blogger/Blogspot pulled a similar stunt a few months ago (no money involved) & drove at least one web-log out of business. Good jobs, corporate creeps. Drive us all to Facebook & Instagram.

Did the work for us: Burr at FairAndUnbalanced rounds up a few himself.

Scamarama: Digby has the deets on unwitting & recurring donations to the Trump cult.

All over for me. Submssions may be submitted to mbru@crooksandliars.com.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
