So, this time next week, ETERNALS will be sitting at $160 million -- at least.
Yes, ETERNALS is a hit. Those numbers would make it a hit if this wasn't the middle of pandemic. Hopefully, the middle. Hopefully, we're almost half-way done with it.
Jussie Smollett. The con artist. He took the stand on Monday. But bigger news is Don Lemon. Jussie's little platonic boyfriend. Remember all those Don was insisting Jussie was a victim? Guess what you didn't know? Don was passing on details of the investigation to Jussie.
You know, the same way Chris Cuomo just got fired from CNN for passing on details to his own brother? Will CNN also fire Don Lemon?
Jussie needs to go away. Serve his time, go away and never come back. He's a disgrace.
He should take that awful sister with him.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
Those protests are being ignored -- again -- by the western press.
The protests continue this morning. And so does violence against the protesters. AL AHMAD TV reports today:
Why was The #MeToo movement necessary in the US? Because women's rights are given lip service from time to time but not truly honored or recognized. And that is reflected in what US news outlets choose to cover when they cover foreign countries. Certainly, THE NEW YORK TIMES' go-go boys in the Green Zone, while getting really close with Iraqi women (prostitutes) elected to ignore the women of Iraq in print. To read those early year reports is to think that Iraq had no women in the whole country. THanks for all your 'ehlp John F. Burns and Dexy. Will you ever attone for what you did? Your wrok really does qualify as a journalistic crime.
And those crimes continue to this day. The pattern set by the 'golden boys' continues. So when Iraqi women fight for their rights, the western press looks the other way. Over and over. It's really past time that women with spaces -- coumnists like you, Michelle Goldberg -- started using your space to point out how your own outlets disappear women from the coverage.
These are stories that mater and they are stories that the few western outlets that bother to cover Iraq now manage to regularly miss.
They certainly missed a death in the region yesterday. Khanzad Organization notes:
A police officer was killed by an armed suspect while responding to a domestic violence call late Saturday in Sulaimani according to officials. Several others were injured.
A person who was subject to a complaint clashed with police units from Sulaimani’s Directorate of Combatting Violence Against Women who were in the process of arresting him, the directorate’s media head Jamal Rasul told Rudaw following the accident.
Police officer Mohammed Latif was killed and three others were injured, he added. The alleged suspect also set the police car on fire, Rasul noted.
