An Illinois lawmaker's effort to make what some call "revenge porn" illegal came one step closer to law on Wednesday after a Senate committee unanimously passed the bill.
Michael Hastings, the journalist best known for the article that led to Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal's resignation, sent, in the hours before his fiery car crash, a panicky email that the FBI was investigating him.
Michael Hastings, a 33-year-old journalist who grabbed national headlines for reporting on Gen. Stanley McChrystal's criticisms of President Obama for Rolling Stone magazine, died Tuesday in a fiery car crash in Los Angeles.
"Rolling Stone magazine is engaging in a psychological operation trying to brainwash the American public," says an expert in military information operations. The magazine's Feb. 23 article, "Another runaway general: Army deploys psy-ops on U.S. senators," by Michael Hastings, is a confused attempt to create an issue where no issue exists, and a potentially libelous smear on the record of a senior military officer. This is what passes for reporting among the anti-war left.
Anything smacking of government mind control will be picked up by the anti-war blogosphere and spread like lightning, being further decontextualized and sensationalized along the way. When the fog of the media war lifts, however, one thing is clear: If any organization is involved in brainwashing, it is Rolling Stone magazine.
The author of the Rolling Stone article that ended the military career of Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former top commander in Afghanistan, has been denied permission to join U.S. troops fighting in Afghanistan, the Pentagon said Tuesday.
President Obama on Tuesday froze any cash bonuses or similar discretionary pay boosts for political appointees, calling it a prudent example of cost-cutting at a time when many families are just trying to get by financially.
Was this the big liftoff? Well, no.
"As some of us know, love doesn't last forever," said Hastings, D-Orland Hills. "This is what I consider to be the most ultimate form of cyberbullying."
In some cases, it has led victims to commit suicide, he said.
