Podcast Extra: After Oregon - On The Media
In 2011, Michael Luo of The New York Times was writing a series of articles about gun laws across the country. He requested data from Oregon officials about the state's gun license holders, but when pro-gun rights groups learned he was trying to get the information they lobbied the state legislature to shield the data. Within months a new law had passed: all of the records, formerly in the public domain, were now private. Bob talks with Luo about why the data is important and why shielding it can making searching for answers after a tragedy so difficult.  Bob also revisits his conversation with Tom Teves, whose son Alex was killed in the shooting rampage in Aurora, Colorado, about his efforts to keep the press from turning mass killers into media icons with his group, NoNotoriety.

Fat People Are Unhealthy - YouTube
"obesity is a disease!" //&! Why I'm Against "Fat Acceptance" - ... "Who do I want to be? [...] Since I've been this since childhood, I have not known & do not know any different. [...] shame does not help anybody." //&! Fooled [Mark Twain quote]. Hoodwinked. Exploited. PPL who are not aware of the SYSTEM WHICH IS RIGGED AGAINST THEM, are rightfully angry (anger directed partly towards themselves, blindly, and the status quo ... 'dare you to shame me, look around you ... I am not the only one!') for being fat shamed, to a certain extent. U can put the material in front of them, but they dont change if they dont snap 180 degrees intellectually: Enlightenment. Curtains revealed & they grasp the extent of the RIGGED SYSTEM. Thus able 2change small step by step. Process. Individual journey. Fuelled by intrinsic motivation (ie not boogie's case). //&! Political Correctness, Offensive (hate speech), free speech - disclosure: guy is from infowars
