The Pony In Corporate Consolidation

adele.jpgYes, ol' Adele Fergusen's brilliant, life-changing column has been Nick Sylvesterized from the Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal's website, but it is still available -- the pony hidden in the internet is that all the crazy shit you put there can last forever and ever! Some kindly blogger has posted the whole thing, in case you missed it yesterday.


And Felix Salmon found a letter from the Editor and Publisher of the KPBJ in which he comes off like a regular Bob McChesney, blaming corporate consolidation of ownership while also decrying the liberal biases of reporters (pulling off a flawless Radical Centrist double-Kurtz axel!):

The corporate owners of the American media are doing nothing more than catering to their customers and delivering the product they want to buy.

You hear that, America? The market demanded that he print Adele's crazed, feverish ruminations!

We wish only that we'd salvaged Adele's author photo before the market demanded that Mr. Coppola delete the story from the website and pretend it never happened.

Update: Found it!

HOLY ACHTUNG TWITTER IS FREAKING OUT! Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office (SCO) has issued a statement, almost 24 full hours after Buzzfeed's story on Donald Trump ordering Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the failed Trump Tower Moscow deal started blowing everybody's minds. Mueller's spokesman says actually BuzzFeed got it a bit wrong. This is significant because 1) Mueller's office NEVER talks, and B) well, they're not actually saying BuzzFeed got it WRONG wrong. Just, you know, kinda wrong.

Wow, that statement is lawyered as fuck. BuzzFeed described "specific statements" wrong, and its "characterization of documents and testimony" was just an eensy bit off, and maybe if BuzzFeed moved this sofa over here it would take advantage of more natural light in the room, and honestly, BuzzFeed should trim up this one paragraph of its article, because those sentences DO NOT SPARK MARIE KONDO'S JOY.

Otherwise, it's great!

First of all, we want everybody to relax. Donald Trump is still a criminal.

It's been a joy watching the reactions come in from TrumpWorld about the news that Donald Trump has committed YET ANOTHER CRIME, in this case suborning perjury by instructing his former lawyer thug fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. How many other people did he do that with? WE DUNNO! But that's not what this post is about.

First of all, let's see what the big guy himself did. As with all presidential statements from the un-president, it happened on Twitter:

Oh wait, that's (grapes) not it. Here it is:

That's right, the president of the United States reacted to a bombshell news report exposing that he had tampered with a witness by suborning perjury by ... tampering with that witness some more in public, by threatening his father-in-law! (To be fair, Trump has been trying to intimidate the witness by encouraging the feds to investigate Cohen's father-in-law for a hot minute now. It's one of his things, like tweeting and pooping at the same time and comparing WALL to WHEEL.)
