7:06 AM: Alexandra Petri of the Washington Post's "Compost" blog on the crazy reactions to the Aziz Ansari "sexual assault" allegations:

This is the one that started it all. NOTE: This contains language that is certainly R-rated, nearly X-rated, but it's the source of the entire controversy so here's the link:

I have very mixed opinions about this:
https://gop.com/the-highly-anticipated-2017-fake-news-awards/

First, it's rather juvenile and lowers the presidency.
Second, it's a rather damning indictment of the "mainstream media".
Third, I don't like that it's hosted at the Republican Party's official website. The GOP should NOT be the anti-media party, which is not to say that the party can't criticize the media on the specific occasions that they deserve it.
