Since you brought it up...

You know what connects Paul Manafort and (founder of the Federalist) Ben Domenech? Fact-Based Communications (FBC Media).

FBC media did PR disguised as journalism paid for by the Malaysian government. Ben Domenech was a subcontractor for that work.
πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡Joshua Trevino worked for the government of Malaysia alonside Fact-Based Communications or FBC Media.

Trevino's subcontractor Ben Domenech made $36,000 from the arrangement.

They called what they were doing journalism. It was really a PR campaign.

In 2011, the same year FBC Media worked their PR campaign in Malaysia, "two FBC principals led the work with Manafort: the firm's founder, longtime journalist Alan Friedman, and former CNN business news producer Eckart Sager."

Woke up to tragic news of another shooting in the US. The shooter left an AR-15 at the scene, 4 dead.

How many more will die before #GunReform is passed? These WMD are way too easy to obtain.

The time for #ThoughtsandPrayers is over.

We the people Demand #GunReformNow
2/It’s NOT fallacy: our peer counties that’ve enacted #GunLaws do NOT have shootings like the US.

Military grade weapons do not belong in the hands of civilians. A shooting occurs in this country on average every 60 hours.

This is an Epidemic.

Almost all of the Road Runner cartoons are available via the @BoomerangToons app.

I subscribed for $5 & decided I'm gonna watch & tweet about 'em all in chronological order, even the later, terrible ones, for which I have an irrational affection.

Here we go.

Boomerang lists them alphabetically not chronologically so Chuck Jones masterpieces sit side-by-side with 1960s atrocities (& later 'revival' attempts.)

I am going to start at the beginning. I will also be including Wile E. Coyote/Bugs Bunny & Ralph Wolf/Sam Sheepdog shorts, FYI
September 17, 1949: "Fast And Furry-ous"

Chuck Jones intended this short to be a parody of cat & mouse "chase" cartoons. Instead, he accidentally created the definitive chase cartoon series of all time.
