In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.
Explaining, the judge says it is possible that Donegan created the entry herself. The judge believes that Elliott should be able to explore whether the entry was fabricated. Accordingly, discovery proceeds, which will now put pressure on Google to respond to broad subpoena demands. The next motion stage could feature a high-stakes one about the reaches of CDA 230.
Videos Dance Party!
I have somewhere in the neighborhood of a bazillion Friday Night Video drafts, but man, it’s been a long, stressful week. It’s been a long, stressful year really. So the Mrs. and I (we’re not married, and if she knew I just called her the Mrs., there might be trouble) have decided that we should go to a DJ show and dance with 20-somethings to blow off some steam. In order get in the mood, I figured some dance music was in order. So your Friday Night Videos have been replaced this week by a Dance Party!
Given that this is about bass, I recommend donning headphones, preferably really brightly-colored ones with a flashy logo like a skull or a “b” or something, and unlocking your inner 23-year old (if you are actually 23, this should be particularly easy for you). If you have a strobe light, you might as well turn that on too.
Now get loose:
Maybe even twerk:
OK, if you’re not actually 23, I don’t recommend twerking. But you could probably pop it:
Now you’re ready! (Or you have a massive headache.) I hope there’s some real dancing in your weekend, even if it’s just by yourself in your north room.
If you’re wondering about the music (and you shouldn’t be wondering, you should be dancing), I selected it from a long list of trap music I’ve accumulated over the last several months in a vain attempt to seem hip. Trap music is basically hip hop meets dubstep, and meant to be played by a DJ in a club with a bunch of kids bouncing to it. Half the time someone has to tell me “this is trap music” for me to be able to distinguish it from several other dubstep derivatives with hip hop beats, but I’m pretty sure most of these are at least trap-ish.
