Don’t ya just hate it when you get embroiled in a conversation with a friend that keeps you up until 7 AM overnight? Yeah … I don’t, either.

  • Glenn Greenwald reports on US Army Private and alleged WikiLeaks whistleblower Bradley Manning’s [pictured] inhumane detention conditions that fall below even military imprisonment standards.

  • New study disproves common (and blatantly false) notion that women who seek abortions are more likely to have mental, emotional or addiction disorders.

  • Shocking (again): Another leaked internal email shows Fox News Washington managing editor Bill Sammon ordering Fox anchors to cast doubt on climate science.

  • Darryl Cunningham’s newest target: Climate change denialism.
    (via Pharyngula)

  • So President Obama apparently intends to revive the Office of Special Counsel, a White House group focused on defending whistleblowers. If only he’d stop prosecuting them, first.
