Quote of the Day:
“May start structuring my tweets to avoid twitter jail.”
— Josh Greenman, opinion editor New York Daily News.
Alan Dershowitz comes to the assistance of Charles C. Johnson
“For anyone who truly supports the open marketplace of ideas, Twitter’s decision to ban Charles Johnson from its influential stall in that marketplace is unjustified. Let people who disagree with Johnson try to reply to him rather than try to censor him.” — Alan Dershowitz, over the weekend.
Let’s not forget, Dershowitz helped get O.J. Simpson acquitted of murder, so maybe Johnson has a fighting chance.
As Johnson explained to The Mirror, “I created a website in high school that caused a massive protest on campus that led to me getting blacklisted from most colleges. The diversity director thought it would be fun to humiliate me in front of the school by having me debate Dershowitz. Instead, he offered me a job.”
What job was it? “The job was as a research assistant on his books and cases He wrote me a glowing letter of recommendation.”
Johnson plans to visit Twitter’s HQ in San Francisco this week.
“Something about the aroma of cinnamon makes me smile. #itsmy2cents” — Black Larry King.
