Based in North Carolina, Stacey Matthews is a former liberal and a 16+ year veteran of blogging with an emphasis on media bias, social issues, and the culture wars.

Last month, USA Today got caught allowing failed 2018 Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams to stealth edit a piece it had published. Editors allowed Abrams to sound more anti-boycott than she initially did after Major League Baseball announced they were pulling the All-Star Game over Georgia's new voting law, which Abrams had referred to as "Jim Crow 2.0."

Last month, Yahoo News ripped the lid off of a government surveillance program run by a division of the USPS. The program monitors, scans, and collects information on social media postings considered "inflammatory" enough to pass along to other government agencies. It includes posts promoting the coordination and planning of upcoming political demonstrations.

It's never a good idea for an elected official to reveal themselves as a Useful Idiot, especially when it comes to their country and/or its allies defending themselves from terrorist attacks. That's exactly what happened earlier this week when a Wisconsin Democratic congressman defended Rep. Ilhan Omar by insinuating that criticism of her anti-Semitic stance on Israel defending itself against Hamas attacks was based on racism.
