Exactly. If you want to "cross that bridge when we get there" well for me this is the bridge.

I’m not telling you (or anyone) how to feel about it. Get upset. My point is that it seems ridiculous to me that this is being decided by a judge and is being viewed as a First Amendment issue instead of an administrative one.

If it's an adminstrative one how does it get corrected? It's not like Acosta can go to the white house HR.

He made it a first amendment issue when he was caught directly lying about the incident. He didn't have to, but that's what Trump did.

I don’t follow this line of thinking. If Acosta thinks he’s been libeled/slandered, I suppose he can pursue that, but I don’t see how it relates to his First Amendment rights.

Also, how was the video doctored? I have heard that the apparent speeding up of the video was due to compressing the video file and/or transferring it from one format to another, which is something I know zilch about.

Compressing or changing the file format isn't going to alter the speed of a small part of the video. At can change the audio and video quality but that's about it. If the compressing or file change created a glitch it would be easily noticable by anyone watching it. It would look more like how lag in  an online game looks. You can easily tell the video was professionally altered by how smooth it is.

Has there ever been an evil/anti-hero Invaders that we're actually Invaders?

Yeah where I work we hand-out caps for the kids to take home. We were instructed yesterday that we can no longer assume the pink ones are for girls & the blue ones are for boys...
We must let them choose themselves what colour they want...suffice to say, the girls still choose pink & the boys, blue.

I'm not surprised. I also think it's fine to give the kids a choice.

The point was it was never a big deal to begin with...we never bothered to hand out individual caps. We just dumped them on the table & told the kids they could have one.

It was just ridiculous that we had to have a staff meeting where the topic was deemed "serious & sensitive."

Basically, real life interactions are a lot smoother than Internet ones. Humans are social creatures and mostly, we don't want to make waves. I don't think using someone's desired pronouns is a big deal. I would find it off-putting if someone came out and made a demand that I use a certain set of pronouns if they didn't match their appearance (while Tina was Tina, she wore a dress, make up, the whole nine yards, which made it easy.) And I find it more than off-putting when people say that if someone didn't internally believe that Tom was now a woman, they're an awful bigot.

Yeah I had an uncle who years after separating from my aunt, decided he felt more comfortable wearing female clothes. His mother, close relatives & friends were fine & accepting with it.

However the times I visited him, he felt ashamed & would resort back to male clothing. I always wanted to tell him that I knew & had no issues.
Maybe I guess deep down he didn't want to "taint" the memories of being married to my aunty.

The meeting should have been an email that said "we are making it or official policy kids get to pick their own hat. "Cool? Cool."

How would the public be able to hold him accountable if the news is unable to report what he's doing because they aren't allowed in the WH? If the only people allowed in are ones who will treat him favorably or with kid gloves then isn't that an issue?

The news industry is still able to report what Trump is doing. No major news organization has been banned from the White House. No attempts at censorship on reporting the events of the White House have taken place. A culling of the White House reporters has not taken place. One reporter, with a history of somewhat unprofessional behavior, has had his press pass revoked. I think this is being blown out of proportion. I can disagree with what Trump did without thinking this is a legal issue, or thinking he shouldn't have the authority to do it, or that this is an affront to the concept of a free and open press.

I'm not sure you understand how "precedents" work. Nobody is saying that he's getting rid of all the press. Yet. And that "yet" is the issue. You don't want to allow it to happen, even once.

Exactly. If you want to "cross that bridge when we get there" well for me this is the bridge.

It's not as cartoony as SU. It's like somewhere between SU and the new Voltron. It's not as smooth as I expected though but I've watched worse.

Watching the first episode. Not bad. Lots of exposition but that's expected. Reminds me of Steven Universe meets Star Wars. I wasn't sure if they would completely separate it from any He Man mythos but they did mention Greyskull.

I disagree. This sets a dangerous precident we're the president can come up with any excuse to remove a reporter they don't like. The fact they are even using a doctored video for their argument makes the lawsuit even more important.

You're right that being a journalist doesn't automatically grant you WH press credentials but once you have them their should be a specific line you have to cross to have them taken away or we just end up with a room full of yes men. This lawsuit will help define that line.

Seriously though. Who cares? If someone what's a specific word to describe them who am to deny them or judge them for it? It's literally zero effort on my part. If doing very little will make someone more comfortable and therefore a more functioning member of society than whatever.

It definitely looks like therw plenty of impeachable offenses but it's best keep that card close to the chest until it's locked down.

I would have went with Danny Devito as his voice
Nah, Pikachu w. a gravelly old man voice does NOT jibe w. the playful young Pokemon that he is.
Besides, DeVito’s an M&M, and i wanna eat him! ;)

But he also has kind of a high pitch voice so it balances the Pikachu with the detective part.
