Elon Musk slams New York Times for its silence on Twitter censorship report

Elon Musk blasted the New York Times Saturday for its refusal to cover the ongoing firestorm over political censorship at Twitter — damning the newspaper as a “lobbying firm for far-left politicians.” The slam came in response to a tweet from conservative radio host Clay Travis, who had posted that “not one single article about @elonmusk or the @twitter email release” that dropped Friday had appeared in the Gray Lady’s pages or on its website. “That is because The New York Times has become, for all intents and purposes, an unregistered lobbying firm for far-left politicians,” Musk responded. The bombshell report documenting Democratic pressure that led Twitter censors to silence The Post and its coverage of Hunter Biden’s laptop ahead of the 2020 presidential election remained absent from the Times’s website — as well as that of its main competitor, the Washington Post — Saturday afternoon. “Whatever your politics are,” Travis continued, “if you’re in media and you don’t think new revelations about the most severe censorship of a newspaper’s story in big tech history isn’t a story worthy of covering you aren’t a journalist you’re a propagandist.”

Biden Tells Democratic National Committee To Make South Carolina First State To Vote During 2024 Primaries

President Joe Biden told Democratic National Committee leaders to make South Carolina the first voting state during the primaries, according to The Washington Post. Traditionally, Iowa and New Hampshire vote first in the general election primaries and garner the most media attention. In a letter delivered to members of the Rules and Bylaws Committee at a dinner on Dec. 1, Biden wrote that South Carolina should be the first primary state to ensure minority voters have a voice in the next general election.

LeBron James calls out media for not asking athletes about the Jerry Jones photo

LeBron James isn’t shy about speaking his mind to the media, especially when he gets to call out the hypocrisy Black athletes sometimes face when dealing with reporters. After the Lakers’ win over the Portland Trail Blazers last night, James took to the podium to answer questions. During the press run, James flipped the script on reporters and called them out for not asking him questions about the Jerry Jones photo, comparing it to the bombardment of questions he got about Kyrie Irving.

States that collect the most in property taxes

Real estate platform ZeroDown examined data from the Census Bureau's annual State Government Tax Collections Survey to see how much money states collect in property taxes. It's important to note there are 14 states that do not collect property taxes at the state level. And while states with the most expensive properties, such as New York and New Jersey, have some of the highest property tax rates in the country, their revenues are divided among local governments such as cities or counties. In most states, property taxes, which are paid on property (either by an individual or corporation) based on its value, account for only a small portion of revenues. The federal government collected $23 billion in property taxes last year.

Bruins hold vigil to honor Urumqi fire victims, support ‘zero COVID’ protests

More than a hundred people gathered for a vigil Thursday evening at Bruin Plaza to honor the victims of a recent deadly fire in Urumqi, China. Attendees placed flowers, signs and candles around the Bruin Bear statue at the student-organized event held in remembrance of 10 people killed in a Nov. 24 fire in the capital of China’s Xinjiang region. The event was also in solidarity with recent protests across China in response to its controversial COVID-19 policies. According to witnesses, the apartment building where the fire took place had blocked off exits because of COVID-19 lockdown protocols, possibly delaying rescue efforts and trapping people inside.

Moving America: Why We Need Railroad Workers

Over the road transportation is how most goods are transported in the United States—either through trucking or railroad. That is why the U.S. Senate adopted a measure that forces a deal between warring national freight railroads and their unions, averting a potential December 9th strike that could have crippled U.S. travel and commerce ahead of the busy holiday shopping season.
