Taking Out the Garbage

Let us enjoy a brief but blessed moment of celebration in these uncelebratory times: After 20 ill-advised years of racism, misogyny, homophobia, Islamaphobia, lies, rage and, yes, ongoing sexual harassment of women, longtime douchebag, foul-mouthed miscreant, and "bold fresh piece of humanity" Bill O'Reilly is finally out at Fox after they did a "thorough and careful review" of the grotesque mountain of allegations against him - and, oh yeah, after dozens of advertisers abandoned him. Savor some of his awful highlights, wonder why in God's name it took this long, thank the tireless protesters, and hope for more righteous doors hitting more sordid losers on their way out.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
