More top-notch reporting

Reason: "Churches, Which Account for 0.02% of COVID-19 Cases, Are a 'Major Source' of Infection, The New York Times Says" - "The paper's claim reflects the same arbitrary distinction between religious and secular activities that churches are challenging in court."

Look at awesome me

Reason: "Narcissists, Psychopaths, and Manipulators Are More Likely To Engage in 'Virtuous Victim Signaling,' Says Study."
Virtue signalers are, essentially, phonies and showoffs—folks who adopt opinions and postures solely to garner praise and sympathy or whose good deeds are tainted by their need for everyone to see just how good they are. Combined with a culture that says only victimhood confers a right to comment on certain issues, it's a big factor in online pile-ons and one that certainly contributes to social media platforms being such a bummer sometimes.
In totally unrelated news: "Work begins on massive Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower."

RBG and the wise latina

Hot Air: "SCOTUS Expands Religious-Liberty And Ministerial-Exception Protections In 7-2 Decisions On Little Sisters, Discrimination Claims."

As if I had to check: surprise surprise, the two dissenters were Ginsburg and Sotomayor.  Just like their dissent in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, their inclination is always to force people to do something they don't want to do.

The garbage media again:

Pontificating from the "Hamilton" stage

Federalist: "We Can’t Have ‘National Dialogues’ If People Get Fired For Talking Honestly" - "No one outside conservative media can criticize Black Lives Matter without being fired or ostracized, so how can we expect the average American to chime in for a productive dialogue?"

It's a mystery, you betcha

Hot Air: "WaPo Wonders: Why Did Decades Of Progressive Leadership In Minneapolis Create Even More Inequality?"

Maybe a corollary question might be: why do people keep voting for Democrats in the cities?  Chicago saw 18 people killed last weekend, Detroit famously went bankrupt, crime is soaring in DeBlasio's NYC, and Baltimore just narrowly avoided re-electing the previous mayor who left under fraud charges.  But the Left and this Washington Post reporter always have a ready answer: true progressive policies just haven't been tried hard enough

Oh, now we know who the leaker is

Federalist: "Schiff Learned Of Russian ‘Bounty’ Intelligence In February, Withheld Information From Congress, And Took No Action" - "Schiff demands the Trump administration brief all of Congress about the unverified allegations, yet he himself did not ask for a briefing following the February briefing of his own staff."
