Glenn Reynolds: It gets worse. According to Wikipedia, at least, she majored in English Literature at Penn. Remember, these people consider themselves the best and the brightest.

Can someone explain why the term "person of color" is acceptable but "colored person" isn't?

Just history.  NAACP haven't changed their name though.

"We" keep contriving new terms as the older ones get sullied.

I'm still waiting for the explanation of what an African-American is.  Continent or country has nothing to do with race there are whites and "people of color" born in both places.

That's how stupid some people are they don't know the difference between Geography and Genealogy.

We have Italian-Americans, German-Americans, etc.  It refers to one's heritage.

Really? 
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

Twitter confirms Trump’s ban is permanent, even if he runs again in 2024.

Trump wasn't allowed to block people from his account "because 1st Amendment".

So is blocking Trump from responding to the account of the marionette in chief not also a violation of the first amendment?

Sam Vinograd becomes latest liberal pundit to jump from CNN to Biden administration
At least five people have jumped from CNN to government gig under Biden

SNIP:
Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor isn’t surprised by the revolving door between CNN and the government. 

"CNN did everything it could to elect President Biden, so it’s logical that so many CNN ‘experts’ immediately shift to work for him," Gainor told Fox News before joking,  "Maybe we should start referring to the president as Joe Biden, D-CNN."


"Several of Biden's new appointments are people who served in government, then went to media gigs, and now are returning to government," McCall told Fox News. "This sort of constant migration back and forth between media and government gives the public the distinct impression that government and media are basically part of the same establishment."

IN MUST-WATCH CLIP, TRUMP ATTORNEY “MICHAEL VAN DER VEEN, CITIZEN” DESTROYS MEDIA:

Quote
[CBS News anchor Lana Zak] seemingly didn’t know what to say, and wanted to follow up on van der Veen’s assertion that the House managers doctored evidence.
To be clear for our viewers, what you’re talking about now is a checkmark that’s a verification on Twitter that did not exist on that particular tweet, a 2020 that should have actually read 2021, and the selective editing, you say, of the tapes. Is that how — is that the doctored evidence of what you’re speaking?
At that point, van der Veen is all of us when he lost it on her.
Wait, wait, wait, wait…that’s not enough for you? That’s not enough for you?
Zak indignantly jumped in to argue with him, not believing that he dared to question her.

It’s not okay to doctor a little bit of evidence. The media has to start telling the right story in this country. The media is trying to divide this country. You are bloodthirsty for ratings, and as such, you’re asking questions now that are already set up with a fact pattern. I can’t believe you would ask me a question indicating that it’s alright just to doctor a little bit of evidence. There’s more stuff we uncovered that they doctored, to be frank with you, and maybe that will come out someday.

My heart aches for van derVeen. He’s had his house attacked. He’s been smeared by the media. He’s been called every name in the book. He looked exhausted yesterday during that interview so god bless him that he still had enough conviction in his veins to rip little Miss CBS to shreds. Bravo!

  • Ted Lieu, California’s 33rd District
  • Joe Neguse, Colorado’s 2nd District
  • Stacey Plaskett, Virgin Islands’ At-Large District
  • Eric Swalwell, California’s 15th District

Every one of these "lawyers" should be banned from presenting before the Senate ever again.
Likewise, they should be referred to their local bar associations for presenting doctored evidence.
