I will be availing myself of the generous @mmfa parental leave policy for the next few months. I will not be watching Fox News. I will be staying off this site instead of randomly tweeting “THE POOP MUST FLOW” or “THE SLEEPER HAS AWAKENED” all the time. See you all in January!

1. Tucker Carlson's snide dismissal of paternity leave is in stark contrast to his network's paternity leave policy, which his male colleagues rave about.

July: Tucker Carlson lets JD Vance attack Pete Buttigieg as one of the Democratic Party's "childless cat ladies." Sept: Buttigieg and his husband welcome two babies. Oct: Carlson says Buttigieg took paternity leave to "figure out how to breastfeed."

I will die on this hill, because it's actually weird and unbecoming to invent a military title for yourself, a lawyer

A lot of reactions to this, but the buried lede is that the attorney general of Arizona is using the adjective as his title.

Incidentally, that Fox corporate doc is full of fun stuff. Here it is explaining why diversity is a strength.

Left, Tucker sneering at paternity leave (and gay dads). Right, Fox's Todd Piro op-ed at praising the network's paternity leave policy after he returned from six weeks with his spouse and infant.

I think this quote summarizes it really well, how are teachers supposed to arbitrate what counts as an "opposing" perspective on social issues that meets the arbitrary requirements of a state legislature that isn't thinking about students but about winning bs culture war points.

Wanna point out that this is not an educator organically advocating for Holocaust denial in the classroom, it's a direct response to the insane anti-CRT legislation passed by Republicans that is now requiring educators to think like this lest they be accused of lawbreaking.

In a secret recording, an administrator in Southlake advised teachers that if they have a book in their class about the Holocaust, they should also have one from an "opposing" perspective. Our latest on the war over books in schools: @ahylton26 @NBCNews

PPP has a poll in the field in DC asking who respondents would support for mayor among various fields involving Bowser, Trayvon White, Robert White, and McDuffie, approval for vax mandates for schools, approvals for various CC, etc. Source: Me, getting polled just now.
