Bitcoin isn't the bubble — the global financial system is

For one thing, bubbles don’t do what bitcoin has done since its inception in 2009…They don’t come right back a couple of years later and soar again to a new price 10 times greater than the previous bubble’s high, which is what bitcoin has done after each one of its three or four previous “bubbles” burst. The real bubble is larger and far more dangerous, and it lies at the heart of the global financial system.

NBC Apologizes, Deletes Oprah 'OUR Future President' Tweet As CNN Confirms 2020 Ambition

During the Golden Globes ceremony last night, NBC raised many eyebrows when it controversially tweeted "Nothing but respect for OUR future president" with a photo of Oprah Winfrey.

WATCH: Journalist Held at Gunpoint, Illegally Searched by Cops—For Filming

Filming the police is entirely legal in every state. However, all too often, we will see police officers overstep their authority and arrest, attack, and assault innocent people for the constitutionally protected act of documenting their behavior in public.

The post-Weinstein Golden Globes was an exercise in hypocrisy

This year’s Golden Globes were meant to be a defiant, vibrant celebration of a post-Weinstein industry, an awards ceremony about so much more than meaningless awards. We were promised a reckoning, the leveling of a male-dominated industry that institutionalized the rape, abuse and harassment of women for decades.
