China?

China records 60,000 COVID-related deaths, and says the peak has passed the AP. If deaths in China are small, then the press must ask why we had so many more deaths. If the deaths in China are significant, the press should think for itself of its responsibility to them by pressing for the end of non-profit institutions in China. None of the alternatives is palatable, so the press will be left behind with the demands of the data. As if the United States had any standing in terms of data.

Deep State Matt Stoller Awards, Paige. Despite the outrageous meme in the title, this is a pretty sharp analysis of how business is doing in Washington. Well worth a careful read, especially in conjunction with this one by Thomas Frank. (Stoller, I think, misses the delicate point that one of the purposes of these ceremonies is to signal that award-givers have the power to bestow prizes; they control, as it were, the dedication process in their field. This dynamic precedes and is a necessity for spreading the power that Stoller describes as such rich detail).

“We” are silenced. Someone else noticed! I would say a sign that the company’s board of directors is about the gigs; Intensify their class solidarity and the consequent tension instead of questioning them.
