It’s been 8 months and Trevor Noah’s ‘Daily Show’ still sucks

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah (Screenshot)Just a few months after Trevor Noah took over the “Daily Show,” it didn’t take long to see what was wrong with Noah’s interpretation of the show. I took down the fact that Noah can’t seem to master the fine art of slapstick, physical comedy, clever silliness in addition to refusing to hold Fox News accountable for what Stewart called “their bullsh*t.”

“Comedic timing should feel as natural as slipping down a slide,” I criticized. “Right now his jokes are plopping down the stairs like a piece of pizza being dragged by a rat.”

Each morning while you’re hopefully still asleep, I go through all of the shows and search for something funny to bring you. This is my job before I dive into the news of the day. Raw readers tend to appreciate former correspondents Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Samantha Bee and sometimes Larry Wilmore when he gets fired up. Noah simply falls flat. I can try to frame one of his segments in the best possible light, but it doesn’t matter. Y’all don’t click.

Wyoming GOP Law Criminalizes Collecting Evidence Of Pollution On Public Land

File:THE POLLUTED SOUTH PLATTE RIVER - NARA - 544810.jpg

A law passed by Wyoming Republicans officially makes it illegal for citizens to collect evidence of pollution on public land that could lead to a government investigation of environmental destruction.

Wyoming Governor Matt Mead signed Senate Bill 12 into law in March making it a criminal offense to “collect resource data,” such as photographs of polluted waterways and land that is private, public, or federal outside of city limits. Violators of the law could face a $5,000 fine and/or prison time.

According to ThinkProgress,

Under the law “collect” means to “take a sample of material, acquire, gather, photograph or otherwise preserve information in any form from open land which is submitted, or intended to be submitted to any agency of the state, or federal government.”

The laws says that only citizens who are given express permission to collect such evidence can actually do so, which quite frankly makes it easier for public and private employees to cover up environmental wrongdoing. For example, if a cattle rancher allows his herd to graze too close to public waterways on public land and the cattle cause an E. coli outbreak in the water that could poison people, citizens who collect evidence of this to report to government agencies would be subject to prosecution. In short, the law is an effort to silence and censor whisteblowers and environmental activists from proving that landowners are illegally polluting public lands.

Inspection- The Dangerous State of the Body Politic

by Ken Carman

 Facebook posters on the Hartmann and Miller pages are probably familiar with my occasional use of the terms “sock puppets” Inspectionand “troll.” Generally I try to never actually call any specific person either term because, well, I don’t live in their heads. I have no real idea if they are, or aren’t.
 That’s a lot more respect than too many posters seem to have these days, and I’m not referring to just posters on the right.
 Ad hominem attacks are far too plentiful. Too many Facebook threads have become more dick offs than anything approaching actual discussion. The worst among these posters often remind me of Trump, even when the poster claims to be a “progressive.” Read more

Obama Alienates Millions With His Incendiary Pro-Knowledge Remarks

resident Obama handed the Republican Party a gift for the general election by making a series of offensive pro-knowledge remarks at Rutgers University over the weekend, a leading Republican official said on Monday.

According to Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, the President’s inflammatory comments, in which he offered full-throated praise for such controversial fields of knowledge as math and science, are sure to come back to haunt the Democrats in November.President Barack Obama.
