The Daily Banter Weekly Wrap Up

This week we covered everything from airplanes to poodles; from The Newsroom to the NSA; from Bloomberg to Glenn Beck; from Oprah to Elysium; and from Cory Booker to David Gregory. It's all right here!


Here's what we covered at The Daily Banter this week.

Bob Cesca unraveled another misleading NSA story, this time from WaPo; he also ripped the "far-left" for opposing Cory Booker with such ferocity; he uncovered how The Guardian and The Atlantic use intrusive corporate tracking bugs to collect data on their readers; and he debunked another Guardian article.

Alyson Chadwick wrote about the absurdity of the RNC banning NBC and CNN from covering its 2016 debates; and she covered Bloomberg's weird connection between crime and poodles.

Ben Cohen brought us another edition of Glenn Beck Comment Porn; and he reviewed the Summer movie Elysium.

Chez Pazienza discussed more problems at NBC News; he outlined exactly why he thinks Oprah sucks; and he brought us this week's edition of Newsroom Notes.

Oliver Willis wrote about why the government's blocking of the US Airways / American merger is good news.

Have a great weekend!
