Confederate Statues Topple, Syria Is Relevant Again, NY Times Apologizes
Statues are coming down around the country, in instances of direct action from anti-police-brutality protesters. Lee gives you instructions to bring down the statues that he insists you should not follow. Although, as a descendant of Robert E Lee, he also gives you permission to take down statues of his ancestor. Police and politicians are offering protesters symbolic concessions to their demands over police brutality, Syria is back in the news as the chemical weapon attack story continues to choke, and more.
Anders Lee reports on a growth moment for the New York Times, after the newspaper published an op-ed from a far right politician calling for the army to crack down on protesters. The backlash led it to fire an editor and opened up space for some self-criticism, specifically around the Bolivian coup it was cheerleading for. Naomi Karavani reviews the victories of progressives in the recent primary elections and laughs at Lindsey Graham relating the current state of affairs in the DNC to the French Revolution.
