"The prospect of Rupert Murdoch buying Time Warner presented real harms to the U.S. and global media landscape. It would have given him control of 40% of the cable market and 30% of the movie market. No one should hold that much influence but Murdoch, in particular, has demonstrated that he is far too irresponsible for that amount of power. Today’s decision was a victory for the thousands of people who signed our petition urging shareholders to oppose the sale as well as media consumers across the country."

Angelo Carusone, Media Matters’ Executive Vice President, on Rupert Murdoch’s withdrawal of his bid for Time Warner.  (via mediamattersforamerica)

Shortly after her mother died, Annie Marie Musselman started photographing injured animals. Here’s a look at her series “Finding Trust”: http://nyr.kr/1tCZNDa

Top: A barred owl rests in a cage during rehabilitation after being hit by a car, which injured its eye.

Bottom: A fawn is held by the clinic’s director before being examined for injuries.

FYI special needs animals may as well be the only animals as far as I am concerned, I will snuggle you all forever

"One year, I taught this (Sociological theory) class and only used female writers. The journals were written by women, the textbook was written by females. Do you know what kind of responses I got on my student evaluations that year? {…} That I was biased, that I was only looking from one point of view… that I was basically a man eater. That’s the kind of things I’d get from the students… The semester before, I used only male writers. Do you think I got any kind of feedback like that then?"

"Not a single word."

I like this quote because it underscores not only how important it is to create a counternarrative to the dominant ones, but how much opposition, backlash and pushback there is to even the simplest challenges to the status quo.

My position? That just means we need to push even harder.
