    Public Opinion is Changing with 70% of Americans Believing Trump’s Actions Were Wrong

    I hate polls. I feel like they are inherently biased based on who is presenting them. That being said, polling data is extremely important in the land of politics – more so now than ever.

  • #HollywoodPayUp: Production Assistants Need Fair Pay

    The other day, I was listening to Scriptnotes, a podcast hosted by Craig Mazin (creator of Chernobyl) and John August (writer of Disney’s Aladdin), and one of the issues they brought up was the treatment of production assistants (PA’s) in Hollywood.

    Quickies: Trump’s Latest High Crimes and What You Can Do about Them

    I usually try to post articles here that people may have missed over the weekend, but this weekend, nothing I read seemed as important as the latest news of Trump attempting to pressure Ukraine into fabricating an investigation into his political opponent Joe Biden. (And he knows it’s a fabrication because he pressured Ukraine through his personal lawyer, not standard…
