ON TONIGHT’S BREAKING NEWS: SB 5 IS DEAD. TEXAS’ SB 5 IS DEAD!

Hey, AP.

At least CNN stuck to reporting on the caloric content of blueberry muffins. So I guess they won’t have to retract that…

MAINSTREAM MEDIA HOW DO YOU FACT CORRECTLY?!

So many props tonight to the people who stood up for their constituents, stood against their colleagues, and braved arrest in Austin tonight. This was a fight taken up by my grandmother and mother’s generations, a fight they thought decided in 1972. It’s our time now. It will not be televised — it will be livestreamed and tweeted. Think about that for a minute. 

The Associated Press, which I took as gospel as a journalist 10 years ago, got something like this so very wrong. It was the people who were correct, and those in power reversed their position long after using the AP as a veneer of legitimacy, and after the rest of the mainstream media disappeared and went to sleep.

It was the people’s filibuster, the people’s media, and it’s still the people’s fight, ladies and gentlemen.

Cheers,

Meg
