Dan Rather can suck Satan's fiery asshole in hell.
So, you're saying you he's not one of your favorites?  I get the distinct impression you don't like Dan Rather.

He's the poster child for the transition from actual unbiased reporting to crusading, rampant bias masquerading as journalism.  

His AXS interviews aren't always awful.  I liked the one he did with Styx and his interview with Paul Stanley was good.  When he reins in his insufferable "holier than thou" pontification and eases back on his penchant for talking down to the viewer, he's not bad.  But that's what makes it so frustrating because he rarely does that.  

I've never really liked him, though.  That dates all the way back to his days as a field reporter in Vietnam.  Even as a kid, I found him to be pompous and un-American in the way he presented things.  I blame him, in part, for the "America bad" slant that has become part and parcel of mainstream media coverage. 

So nah.  I don't much care for him.

Started my annual rewatch of the James Bond series. Got through all the Connerys so far (and the one Lazenby while skipping the farce version of Casino Royale). Hoping to pick up the Roger Moores starting next week. Good chance this will span into 2021.

On deck for the movie podcast:
Back to the Future parts 2&3 (1 is already recorded and in the can)
Diabolique (1955)
Labyrinth (I've actually never seen it so should be fun times.)

I'll tell you what, some of you guys ruin a good thing with your child perns.  I was enjoying my pandemic viewing and now this.  From foxy newz


Pornhub issued a series of new restrictions on user experience Tuesday as it faced backlash over an explosive report on underage sex trafficking victims being exploited on its platform.

"At Pornhub, nothing is more important than the safety of our community," a statement from the company read. "Our core values such as inclusivity, freedom of expression and privacy are only possible when our platform is trusted by our users. This is why we have always been committed to eliminating illegal content, including non-consensual material and child sexual abuse material."
The streaming giant announced, among other things, that it would only allow "properly identified users" to upload content on the site. It also announced it would ban downloads and expand moderation on the site. 
While the site has faced scrutiny in the past, the criticism seemed to intensify after New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof detailed multiple allegations of sexual exploitation on the platform.

One of those victims, a woman identified as "Nicole," claimed underage videos of her naked were posted to the site. She reportedly told Pornhub: “You really need a better system. … I tried to kill myself multiple times after finding myself reuploaded on your website."
In a statement to Fox News last week, Pornhub denied allowing child sexual abuse material on its platform.

"Any assertion that we allow CSAM is irresponsible and flagrantly untrue," a statement from the company read referring to child sexual abuse material. "We have zero tolerance for CSAM. Pornhub is unequivocally committed to combating CSAM, and has instituted an industry-leading trust and safety policy to identify and eradicate illegal material from our community."

Its newest rules came amid renewed scrutiny in the Senate and as major credit card companies said they would investigate the platform's activities.

However, Dani Pinter, Nicole's attorney at the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, maintains that the platform can't be trusted even with its new policies.

"I don't trust them at all to do what they're saying they're going to do -- first of all," she said. "And secondly, it's really irrelevant because there's nothing new that has come to light to them. We have at the national center have been talking about all of these issues for years -- specifically targeting Pornhub."

She also pointed to activist Laila Mickelwait's work calling out the company, including a massive petition which received 2.1 million signatures backing her call to shut down the platform.


"People have been directly asking Pornhub to respond for months on end so clearly this is nothing but self-preservation and gaslighting," Pinter said.
Pornhub did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

Pinter intends to bring civil litigation, leveraging an exception to the legal immunity typically granted to platforms like Pornhub. In 2018, President Trump signed legislation that blocked sites from using Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act as a defense for several sex trafficking offenses, regardless of whether they materially contributed to the unlawful conduct. It specifically aims to hold platforms accountable if they knowingly facilitate sex trafficking.

While the scope of that exception is unclear, Pinter is contending it applies to platforms that "should have known" about trafficking content.

For months, Pornhub has been fending off criticism like Pinter's and faced a petition with 2.1 million signatures calling for the site to be shut down. At the congressional level, the company faced backlash from lawmakers like Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who called on the Justice Department to investigate the company.


Last week, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., also vowed to introduce legislation that would grant sex trafficking victims a federal right to sue Pornhub.
As part of Pornhub's new policies, it pledged to release a transparency report on its content moderation from 2020.

I tried that.  The Court threw it out based on some bullshit immunity statute.


Have you tried that new Gold Bond Soothing Lotion?  Great for those blisters.

Do you know how laughable it is for a porn distributor to make statements regarding inclusivity?  

People will watch what they watch.  Nobody needs pans, trans, dwarf, Hindu and furry quotas on there.

Started a new one tonight on hbo max. Just came out this week. What appears to be a 4-5 part episodic view of the Heavens Gate cult that existed from the mid 70s to 1997 when they all rode the comet to suicide. I’ve seen numerous documentaries and interviews about Jim Jones. But damn these heavens gate people were another level of crazy. Essentially a ufo “religion”. It’s crazy yet fascinating at the same time.  Much like the Jonestown stuff.

Not locked down by any means.  Fuck that noise.

I'm finally catching up on Better Call Saul, Criminal Minds, last season of Black Mirror, Chicago PD, Law & Order: SVU, and several serial killer documentaries.  Manhunt: Hunt for the Unabomber is a 6 episode series on Netflix and it is good. 

Also wanting to start Blacklist in the next week or so.

I got bored with Blacklist pretty early on.  There was this whole period where the main chick was clearly wearing a wig and I hated that.  

I've kicked over to some of the British shows lately.  Luther is pretty good. Early Idris.  

I don't like Binklecrimp Dinglesnatch at all, but I have to admit that his Sherlock is actually really interesting.  It's implausible at times, but you can see how it impacted the RDJ version that came later.  I don't think those (entertaining) movies would have existed without this series to set the stage.  

Benny Hill.  Dumb comedy that would be eviscerated in the current "everybody's offended" culture, but it just makes me laugh.  

Also found an old comedy called Keeping Up Appearances.  It has its moments. I much prefer the British comedic style generally.  It works for me. What passes for comedy in the US doesn't as a general rule (Carrey, Ferrell, Rogen, any Wilson, Vaughn.... none of them are funny in the least).  KUA wouldn't be for everyone (and probably not for most here).

Snagette loves her some Criminal Minds.  I, on the other hand, want to punch every one of them in the larynx.  So, the team is called to a murder scene in Reno Nevada. They see the body of a young girl stabbed multiple times and tied to a chair.  Based solely on this, they gather the entire Reno PD in a room and take turns bringing them up to speed on the "Unsub".  The Unsub????  What the fuck is an Unsub?  Pow, right to the larynx.

The Unsub is a man in his mid 30's with short brown hair and a tennis shoe fetish.  Preferably Adidas.

He's into weight lifting but was traumatized as a child when his mother forgot about him and left him in a grocery store while she drove home and put away the groceries.

Our Unsub has a thing for Orville Redenbacher popcorn, the buttered kind. And he's likely to be hanging out in front of dry cleaners around lunch time.

We know that he has fantasies about cereal bowls and loves to polish rear bumpers at local used car dealerships after hours.

POW!!! Right to the larynx.

We're riding the same bus.  I can't STAND that show.  I'm sick of hearing my daughters tell me how "beautiful" Matthew Cock Gobbler is.   That wormy pseudo-intellectual fop sickens me.  

But every single time I think I just want to nuke the show from my television for all eternity?  This happens.  




I'd like to punch that in the larynx but with a different appendage.
