CNN: When You Claim Our Hillary Clinton Documentary Will Be Biased, You Are Unfairly Pre-Judging Us Based Upon Nothing But Our 30 Year History of Ridiculous Bias

And also, "it would be a disservice to voters" were the RNC to refuse to permit CNN to moderate its debates. Bazinga.

Open Thread. Short day I know. But I'm knockin' off early anyway.

This is interesting -- porn actress quits business upon finding Jesus. Circle of Life: this woman discovers God as Sydney Leathers discovers cronuts.

Here's something -- Jeff Bezos bought the Good Version of the Washington Post. The part which comes without its legacy pensions. That is, the Washington Post Company (now the proud owner of... Slate) will have to pay those pensions.

Or, you know, not.

Turning to pensions, a SEC filing states that:
[T]he Purchaser shall assume all liabilities that relate to providing post-retirement welfare benefits to Post Employees, and the Seller shall retain all liabilities that relate to providing post-retirement welfare benefits to Former Post Employees.

So, Bezos will not be responsible for endless legacy pension costs. And, according to AllThingsD, Bezos will be given “what amounts to $50 million” to help with the costs of newly acquired employee’s pension promises. That sweetens the overall deal, and lowers its effective price.

That is, Bezos assumes the costs of current employees' future retirement costs, but not past employees' current retirement costs.

And, down below, the gerbils are at it again on Gun Control.

If you missed it this weekend, Slate said something awfully stupid, and so did Salon.

And some of the AoSHQ folks got together to do a podcast.
