Remember that scene from Anne Rice’s “Queen of the Damned” where the tears of Hillary’s supporters slowly seeped into the ground beneath the Javits Center and rousedChristiane Amanpour from her long slumber? Angered by this disturbance, she called to her minions to awaken and save both journalism and democracy from mortal peril. Not that we needed anyone to confess that the press had been fast asleep for eight long years, but Google has really come a long way in that time, and there’s no reason for someone like Joy Reid to tweet something like this without doing a quick history […]

But the piece did contain one important nugget that should prompt Americans to rethink how their government is fighting a four-decade war against drugs. In a pre-recorded video, Guzmán told Rolling Stone repeatedly that he got involved in drug trafficking in the first place because he didn’t have any other options.
