    Alyssa Erdley, News with Attitude|Feb 16, 2020

    On Monday, the much-anticipated results of the Democratic Iowa caucus were not available once the event ended. An app that had been designed to report results automatically from the phones of the precinct chairs either did not download, did not work, or was too complex for the user to figure out. It took two days for the Democrat party's election officials to parse through the precincts' reports to come up with some numbers that they declared definitive. If Iowa's Democratic party had conducted...

    Stan Greene, Observer Staff Writer|Feb 16, 2020

    Those of us who follow the CoronaVirus statistics coming out of Mainland China, have always suspected the Chinese are lying about their 650 death toll, in less than 30,000 cases.
