THE MORNING BANTER: Controversial Muslim Surveillance, US Airways Reasonability, Apocalyptic Pastors, and Aaron Sorkin Supercuts

Happy Wednesday! Your taxes are all wrong! Here’s what’s happening on the interweb:

1. NYPD Finally Shuts Down Controversial Surveillance Program That Spied On Muslims

The New York Police Department has shut down its controversial Muslim surveillance program. The New York Times reports the decision comes amidst two federal lawsuits against the NYPD’s secretive Demographics Unit, and is the first major indication Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is distancing himself from some of the post-9/11 tactics established by his predecessor, former commissioner Ray Kelly, who is a little…let’s not say racist…let’s say…racey?

2. US Airways Won’t Fire the Person who Sent that Pornographic Tweet

In some shockingly reasonable news, the person responsible for sending an insanely graphic tweet from the official US Airways account on Monday won’t be fired because they made an honest mistake, a spokesman for the airline said Tuesday. Thank god for airlines excusing simple human error…

3. Blood Moon Lunacy: How Televangelist John Hagee is Trying to Bring on Armageddon

A pastor in San Antonio is doing his best to usher in the apocalypse, and no this is not a reference to X-Men: Days of Future Past.

4. WATCH: Sorkinisms – A Supercut

The best part about Sorkin’s prose is how malleable it is.
