Joker Update: I had expressed reservations about this movie providing sympathy for the devil and possibly vaguely encouraging vengeance-violence. But footage from the movie was leaked, and according to Ethan Van Sciver (who saw it before Warner Bros. stamped it out), the movie is brutal and ugly and does not seem to suggest that Joker is anything other than a nasty villain. I didn't see the footage, so I can't say either way.

Flashback: Russia says John Brennan visited Russia in 2016 for undisclosed purposes
High-ranking Russian officials claim that CIA Director John Brennan visited Moscow on March 14 to meet with Russia’s federal intelligence agency. A CIA spokesman allegedly clarified that the meeting had nothing to do with Russia’s withdrawal from Syria.
"It's no secret that Brennan was here," claimed Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov. "But he didn't visit the Foreign Ministry. I know for sure that he met with the Federal Security Service (the successor agency to the Soviet KGB), and someone else."

Thanks to JackStraw for the reminder. Is this about the spy they later had to extract? If so, maybe a meeting with the head of the CIA drew some suspicions...

Correction: The Dark Knight shooter guy did not dress like the Joker, say he was the Joker, or claim he was committing murder to be like the Joker.
A commenter or two told me that I was wrong, and I just got around to refreshing my recollection today. They were right. Apparently, the "Joker" claim came from those always-wrong "early reports," and it was just such Money-Making Clickbait for the Media -- and that's all this priesthood of warrior-firefighters cares about -- that the media kept on repeating it until most people thought this clickbait fiction was reality.
