The Sunday Times of London has a story today that is a classic in awful journalism. It quotes anonymous government sources in claims about Edward Snowden that I choose not to repeat, in order not to further spread what I strongly believe is a lie.

How can I know that? I can't. But my hard-and-fast rule with anonymous sources is not just to disbelieve them, but to actively believe that something else must be true when the sources -- and the media organizations that enable them -- are sniping at other people. This is particularly the case when not even a shred of evidence is presented to back up the claims.

The news organizations that do this kind of thing get special contempt, because they are carrying water for unnamed people with hidden or unstated agendas. The Times, which was a highly reputable paper before Rupert Murdoch took control, still had some credibility in my thinking.... more »

President Obama truly doesn't believe in accountability for massive failure -- by torturers, bankers and now the head of an agency where pathetic, known security lapses helped China get access to an incredibly sensitive database on government workers and people holding security clearances.

Meanwhile, the NSA has laughed off the part of its duties in which it's supposed to focus on defense, not just offense.

And this is what we get. It'll keep happening because no one has any accountability for anything in our government or top business dealings, if they're near the top of their ladders.

1. Every GOP candidate but Kasich has catered to apocalyptic ichor, portraying the nation - which is in vastly better shape now - as teetering at an abyss and the current center-right president as satanic. Meanwhile can you name an actual policy proposal put forward by any of them? Other that doubling down on more tax cuts for the rich?  And disdaining science and every other knowledge profession?

Here's what we learned. That 84% of Republicans in rock-ribbed, sensible New Hampshire (!!) have bought and guzzled that koolaid. Do you start to see why Trump and Cruz are not personally the problem, but symptoms of a poison, and that poison has been shoved into our veins by Rupert Murdoch?  The populist, know-nothing rage that Rupert and radio shock-jocks have spread can only have one of two outcomes:

    (a) 1933 Germany.... (b) or 1933 America. If millions of white boomers remember that oligarchs are not their friends, and that their parents' favorite person was FDR... then we may have a soft landing.

2. Sure, Bernie Sanders also reflects this tizzy of populist anger in America. Though in his case the ravings are actual policy proposals that aren’t - in themselves - all that worrisome. A bit center-left, though not by any European standards.  Mostly take-backs of insane GOP pro-oligarch experiments across the last 25 years.  Also note this: even if (God willing) this version of goppers is pushed out of control of Congress, Sanders will not get the socialist thing to any worrisome degree. He'll denounce the blue-dog, DNC dems who will moderate his every bill.

No, my worries about a Sanders presidency are (a) that the Timothy Mc Veigh types will go berserk, and (b) I am watching him closely to picture what sort of commander-in-chief he’d make. Oh, he's stable and sane.  Still, to be plain, as of this moment?  I’d be more comfortable with Bill and Hill near the phones.

And Bernie reminds me of my Dad.  Not a baaaaad thing. Still. I’d vote dem even if they nominate a yellow Labrador, even over Kasich. And this acknowledging that in times past I used to vote for republicans and libertarians, from time to time.

This is not The Republican Party.  It is the Confederacy. That name and model fits.  It fits vastly better that any other.  What’s more is… you know it to be so.___

At Medium, I took a look at Google's latest Nexus phones, and was very impressed. I also think they could finally prod the Android ecosystem into long-overdue housecleaning. To put it kindly, Android security is a giant steaming mess. Right now, if I'm buying a new Android phone (and I am in this case), it's a Nexus.

When Tim Cook introduced the iPad Pro, he said it was the future of personal computing -- at least Apple's version of it. That's bad news if you believe in personal freedom to choose what you want to do with the hardware you buy. I explain why in my latest Slate column.
