Top of the news

Dec 17, 2013

Starting off with stories that fall under the category of "disturbing," a photo-by-photo presentation by New York Times' James Estrin illuminates the Central African crisis. "While the world was covering #Mandela's funeral @jeromedelay stayed on to document the rapidly worsening #CAR Crisis," noted at Jamie Tarabay at Al Jazeera America.

Under that category as well, now you can read the complete collection of "stomach-churning" sexual assault accusations against R&B artist R. Kelly. Suzanne Yada at the Center for Investigative Reporting shared this quote, "...nobody matters less to our society than young black women." Jennifer Pozner with WIMN's Voices remarked, "People in the music industry know @FreedMyself; if @ladygaga didn't somehow, her label sure did."

Also, Zachary Mider at Bloomberg informs us that an accidental tax break has saved the wealthiest Americans $100 billion. Or as Paul Blumenthal with Huffington Post put it, "How the super rich avoid the estate tax. Also, Sheldon Adelson 'has no intention of ever dying.'"
