    Rachel Maddow showed that Georgia Republicans are willing to destroy democracy to save themselves and Trump from prosecution.

    Maddow said:

    “And I don’t know, maybe this would be easier to see if it were happening in another country. And, you know, maybe the leader of their party is still going to face criminal charges in other jurisdictions where he’s under criminal investigation, like federally, or in New York state where he’s under criminal investigation. Maybe he will, maybe he won’t. None of us know. But in the one place where he is under criminal investigation, and his party is in full control of the state government, they’ve just decided for the first time in the state’s history, that it is within their own power to remove prosecutors in the middle of their duties on their own say so. And, yes, this is a story about Georgia, and yes, this is a story about Trump, and the potential charges he’s facing. But this is a whole new step for us as a country. This is a new thing for us as a democracy.

    This is not ranting against the investigators. We’ve seen that before. And calling people names, and even picking off individuals in the law enforcement system to try and turn them into enemies. As bad as that is, we’ve seen it all before. This isn’t just verbally and politically delegitimizing the entities. Those are bad things to do.

    But this is more.

    Sticks and stones, right? But this is dismantling the way the legal system works so it will no longer work against him. This isn’t a resolution denouncing a prosecutor who might bring charges against Donald Trump. This is giving Republicans, this is Republicans voting to give themselves the power to remove a prosecutor that acts in the way they don’t like as she’s on the precipice of potentially bringing charges against him. This passed the Georgia state legislature tonight and will soon be on its way to the governor. For Georgia, yes, but for us as a country, this is a benchmark moment.”

      Easley: “The idea that Republicans in Georgia are going to give themselves the power to remove prosecutors who are elected officials if they do something that the Republicans don’t like…The Georgia GOP would rather destroy democracy than see Trump indicted.”

    They get 15 mins of recess every hour.
    They have NO standardized tests except for PISA in HS
    and they outperform us every time.
    Ironically, in the 1970’s, they modeled their education based on US schools and US university research.”

    Mehdi Hasan to Joy Reid:

    “When you have a constant media diet of lies and propaganda which these people are injecting in their veins every night.”
    “And we now know the hosts—now we can prove that the hosts don’t even believe the nonsense they are saying to their viewers.”
    “No one has more contempt or disrespect for conservative voters than conservative media personalities by the way.”
    “How do you stop that when you have non-stop lies…it’s very hard when 20 to 30% of the American public has been cocooned off in a bubble where they are fed misinformation, disinformation by the likes of Ingram and Hannity and Rupert Murdoch, who goes under oath in a deposition and says yes my hosts endorsed the Big Lie.”

    Another explosive Dominion doc dump uncovers an existential crisis at Fox News
    In my opinion, these exhibits are powerful smoking guns.

    By Katie S. Phang,

    Tuesday brought another “document dump” in the highly watched Dominion Voting Systems v. Fox News defamation case. The lawsuit is set to go to trial in April. But before a jury is even seated, the parties are racing toward a March 21 summary judgment hearing that could decide the case in Dominion’s favor without a trial. In preparation for that hearing, a judge has unsealed hundreds of exhibits, composed of thousands of pages of texts, emails, documents and correspondence, almost all of which seem (at least to me) to support Dominion’s claims that from the top of the corporation to the bottom, its owners, executives, hosts, anchors, producers and even fact-checkers knew that Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election and that there was no credible evidence of election fraud.

      Family of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, top Democrats lambaste Fox News and Tucker Carlson over Jan. 6 portrayal

      The family of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died following the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol, rebuked Fox News and host Tucker Carlson after he aired selected unseen footage of the attack to falsely claim the media and congressional investigators misled the public about the events, including the circumstances of Sicknick’s death.

      In a statement provided to CBS News, Sicknick’s family said they are “outraged at the ongoing attack” by Fox News and accused Carlson of cherry-picking footage from the Jan. 6 riot that “supports his delusional views that” it was peaceful.

      “Every time the pain of that day seems to have ebbed a bit, organizations like Fox rip our wounds wide open again and we are frankly sick of it,” the Sicknick family said.

      • March 8, 2023 at 4:39 pm

        imho, when ratings and cash and the Speakership are more important than rule of law, life, democracy.
        -Carlson promoted the Big Lie and knew the election was not stolen.
        -stop paying for Fox ads – cut them off!
        -stop supporting highly paid gop state TV journalists.
        -stop recycling the lies on their behalf.
