Human Events runs with a small team. We prioritize ensuring that our articles make accurate factual claims and defensible arguments. After having reviewed the piece in question, we think it holds up - even if we were deceived as to authorship. https://t.co/mRKP0FgxMC

Read these words: "We think it holds up - even if we were deceived as to authorship." - the editor of @humanevents saying deception is fine because he likes the argument being made. No transparency means no disclosure of interests. That's not journalism; that's polemics. https://t.co/tSRGzgxReH

Psychologists have *largely* heeded their profession's ethical canons against diagnosing someone from afar. Mary Trump, author of a new book on the president has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. Her assessment of her uncle is withering. https://t.co/n3xACxWvlb

Astonishing story: Right-Wing Media Outlets Duped by a Middle East Propaganda Campaign https://t.co/jrpk4RCTcs

Breaking: Regulators impose $150 million penalty on @DeutscheBank for violating anti-money-laundering rules in its relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. The behavior revealed in regulatory documents is stunning –– even by Deutsche standards. @MattGoldstein26 https://t.co/jNHq4DZv32

Apparently not believing in something doesn’t make it less real. https://t.co/mKAQxT5z7X

A newly appointed religious freedom adviser at the United States' agency responsible for foreign aid has a long history of making inflammatory and anti-Islam remarks, including calling for an armed revolution if the Tea Party did not win at the ballot box https://t.co/aMXHkKiNzB https://t.co/5JFPuI3RpD

NEW: Prosecutors around the country are asking potential jurors if they support #BlackLivesMatter—and having them removed if they do. A California appeals court will soon determine whether that's legal. https://t.co/vag52TMDsx

"If people struggle to recognise what is true and what isn’t, the only people to benefit are liars, crooks, and tyrants. [Without] agreed facts to work on, then nothing in a good society works." @arusbridger & @risj_oxford in @UniofOxford Creweian Oration https://t.co/2yWxu7Lz19

318 murders in 2019 compared to 2,245 murders in 1990 but it’s all “crime-ravaged city calls out for help” so far as @nypost is concerned. https://t.co/rh3rWpUMda

Trump's plan is to give up, and hope that people don't mind that we have the worst outbreak in the world. https://t.co/qPMxpxxvYO https://t.co/IdZlf02oHn

This strategy is premised on the belief that journalists will give in to covid fatigue & move on. Journalism's bias towards novelty is the lever they're exploiting. Whether this strategy eventually proves effective or not depends not on the public, but on journalists. https://t.co/0kKgUhCWce

The authors of one of the academic papers most often trotted out to claim there is no racial bias in police shootings issue a full retraction following its repeated “misuse” by conservative pundits and note they made claims unsupported by their study https://t.co/FE700kRgqF

Big Jim Justice, richest man in West Va., small-govt champion who also happens to be the governor, turns out to be a Big Recipient of Government Handouts. https://t.co/qiNAxaL1Ld

Democratic lawmakers introduced a bill Thursday that will require “dark money” judicial groups to reveal their donors after playing an outside role during a recent run of Supreme Court confirmation hearings. https://t.co/Ro4bWAYWe8

BREAKING: Mary Trump’s highly anticipated book "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man" will be released next week—2 weeks ahead of its planned release date https://t.co/A6tYD1JplF

Fox News edits Trump out of photo with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell at Mar-a-Lago https://t.co/Fx87397x1y https://t.co/SEst77byQY

Fox is now addressing this. Network spox says, “On Sunday, July 5, a report on Ghislaine Maxwell during FOX News Channel’s America’s News HQ mistakenly eliminated President Donald Trump from a photo alongside then Melania Knauss, Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell. We regret the error.” https://t.co/Sfqthbx9NI

A remarkable straight news wapo piece that doesn't beat around the bush: Trump is running on racism. This would not have been written four years ago even though the strands are the same. Which is why I do believe the media has evolved in important ways https://t.co/Yw4mwyt8qp

Incredible: "As coronavirus tore through Maryland nursing homes in March and April, state regulators did not conduct any in-person nursing home inspections for more than a month because there wasn’t personal protective equipment for investigators to wear." https://t.co/s9i686pvbv
