What We’re Reading June 30, 2014
We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!
It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Monday June 30, 2014.
On Friday, one member of the media decided it was time to come clean and admit they were wrong for supporting the election of President Obama. The Billings Gazette out of Billings, Montana was full of remorse, as they should be, when they admitted their error.

Liberal fear-mongering moved Rock and Roll icon Michael Stipe (of R.E.M. fame) to put off getting tested for HIV for five years!
“In the early Eighties, as a 22-year-old queer man living during the Reagan-Bush administration, I was afraid to get tested for HIV for fear of quarantine, the threat of internment camps and having my basic civil rights stripped away,” he said.
“I waited five years to get my first anonymous test. I am happy that attitudes have matured and changed, and I feel lucky that I live in a country where acceptance, tolerance and policy toward HIV-AIDS and LGBTQ issues have advanced as far as they have.”
This is the horrible fear that liberals peddle… and yet somehow it is the Republicans who are the “fear mongers?” Please.
