More Than Meets the Smize: A Look Inside Tyra Banks's Exploitative Empire | Broadly
"This isn't the first time a Tyra Banks show has been accused of mistreating people in work environments, nor Banks's first cancellation. During her first talk show, The Tyra Banks Show, staff members and guests allegedly viewed Banks as stingy and ruthless. One year, Banks reportedly gave staff members McDonald's cheeseburgers in lieu of holiday bonuses at their Christmas party. ... Tabloids and gossip sites have also reported for years about alleged mistreatment of Banks's talk show guests. Take the cancer survivor who had her post-chemo weave installed on the air. She reportedly had to have her weave surgically removed after it became infected."

Clinton Foundation Donors Got Weapons Deals From Hillary Clinton's State Department
fuuuuuuuuuck this and fuck "no comment"

coming out of the "favor bank": hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of weapons, fighter jets, biochemical agents

"Under federal law, foreign governments seeking State Department clearance to buy American-made arms are barred from making campaign contributions -- a prohibition aimed at preventing foreign interests from using cash to influence national security policy. But nothing prevents them from contributing to a philanthropic foundation controlled by policymakers."

dunno if I really want to create a pinboard tag for "american_defense_contractors" ... but maybe I should ... hummm

Finding Goatse: The Mystery Man Behind the Most Disturbing Internet Meme in History
"It was kind of a secret handshake thing," Dash said. "It was so transgressive that it could only happen on the web. And it was something that was a bit of a hazing ritual, an induction ritual that you went through and now you're part of web culture."

U.S. Accused of Using Drones to Target Rescue Workers and Funerals in Pakistan
CHRIS WOODS: Even CIA agrees that it’s killed at least 50, and perhaps as high as 60, civilians. Their figures and ours are very different, and I think that’s based on how they interpreted "civilian." But nevertheless, CIA agrees that they’ve killed 50 to 60 civilians. There’s not been an investigation into a single one of those civilian deaths, and there’s not been a cent of compensation ever paid to anyone who’s been killed accidentally in Pakistan. And that’s a problem. When you have a covert intelligence agency running a military campaign, your accountability effectively collapses. And I think it’s worrying.
