The Puritanical Glee Over the Ashley Madison Hack

thewire.in — High school students have long read The Scarlet Letter, the 1850 novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne set in a Puritanical Massachusetts town in the mid-17th Century. It chronicles the life of a woman who is found to have committed adultery (on her long-presumed-lost-at-sea husband); as punishment, she is forced to stand before her village with the letter "A" attached to her dress.

AP's dangerous Iran hoax demands an accounting and explanation

theguardian.com — (updated below w/AP's response) It's important to return to the story about AP's nuclear Iran "exclusive" which I wrote about yesterday.

FDL Book Salon Welcomes Charlie Savage

firedoglake.com — (Please welcome in the comments Charlie Savage, author of Takeover: The Return of the Imperial Presidency and the Subversion of American Democracy and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for his work on Bush's signing statements - JH) Ever since The New York Times revealed the illegal NSA warrantless surveillance program in December, 2005, it has been inescapably clear that the Bush administration is a lawless government, grounded in the belief that nothing - certainly not the rule of law - can limit the President's powers.

Iranians' View of the Nuclear Deal: Optimistic, With Significant Caveats

firstlook.org — U.S. media coverage of the Iran deal is, as usual, overwhelmingly focused on American and Israeli voices, with the hard-liner fanatics in each country issuing apocalyptic decrees, insisting that the deal is far too lenient on Iran and provides it with far too many benefits.
