One month ago, the Norwegian fishing ministry shot #FreyatheWalrus dead, leading to media coverage saying she was “euthanized.”

Today, we look at four euphemistic terms used by industries that profit from #animal death and at outlets repeating this lingo without scrutiny. 1/10
Outlets like @guardian, @euronews, @CNN and @NPR were among many that used the word “euthanized” to describe Freya’s death.

A rare exception, which did not repeat the language used by the #fishing ministry, was a piece by @jasondhorowitz at @nytimes. 2/10…
Animal #euthanasia is supposed to be an act that reduces suffering, says veterinarian @iltaylorwriter.

Freya was neither ill nor suffering. She was shot because Norway’s #fishing ministry @fiskeridir declared relocation “not a viable option.” 3/10

I came across the source of a picture of Tony Podesta and former Speaker Denny Hastert. It was apparently taken in Japan. He once asked his brother John if he was "still in torture chamber".……… ImageImageImageImage
I forgot to mention, that Tony Podesta had a subterranean vault built below his DC house, according to this 2004 article. I wonder if John had one as well? Was that what Tony was referring to, when mentioning "torture chamber"?…… ImageImageImageImage
Does anyone know why Tony Podesta and friends are all wearing red shoes? ImageImageImage

BREAKING: House Interior Approps bill is out! The good: The subcommittee rejected the President’s budget request for $15.3 mill in additional funding for the WHB Program. The bill continues to prohibit the slaughtering of #wildhorses and burros. #appropriation #freewildhorses Image
The bad: the draft bill would result in Congress handing the Bureau $42 mill in additional #taxpayer funds over 2019 budget levels with no hard requirements to prevent the agency from spending all the funds to #roundup and stockpile #wildhorses and to surgically sterilize them.
These are the first installments on the Bureau’s multi-billion dollar proposal to cull #wildhorse populations back to #extinction levels, a plan that will push the program off the fiscal cliff, inevitably resulting in the mass #slaughter of America’s nat'l icons. #stoptheroundups
