National and Virginia News Headlines: Sunday Morning


Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, July 26. With regard to the video, I continue to have mixed feelings about progressives going on right-wing shows: a) it IS a chance to debunk their lies; b) in the case of Mark Levine, he does a great job; but c) it also legitimizes the right-wing shows, as if there really are two equivalent sides in the debate; and d) the hosts of these shows frame the entire debate in a wildly biased way (e.g., in this case, the nonsense about a “number of accusations and scandals going on” regarding Hillary Clinton; in fact, these are all right-wing-echo-chamber-imagined “scandals” that exist only in their fevered imaginations.)
