01) Cruel and Unusual

“On the inaugural episode of More Perfect, we explore three little words embedded in the 8th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution: “cruel and unusual.” America has long wrestled with this concept in the context of our strongest punishment, the death penalty. A majority of “we the people” (61 percent, to be exact) are in favor of having it, but inside the Supreme Court, opinions have evolved over time in surprising ways.

And outside of the court, the debate drove one woman in the UK to take on the U.S. death penalty system from Europe. It also caused states to resuscitate old methods used for executing prisoners on death row. And perhaps more than anything, it forced a conversation on what constitutes cruel and unusual punishment.”

The Scientific Method Made Easy…

01) The Scientific Method Made Easy

“The ‘Made Easy’ series explains the evidence of our origins, from the Big Bang to the human migration out of Africa. This video explains how we acquire this knowledge, and how ideas go from a hunch in a laboratory to accepted theories taught in school.
The video cuts at the end, and the final sentence should read: “In the next video, I’ll look at whether belief can be regarded as science.”

The Untold Truth Of Nancy Grace…

01) The Untold Truth Of Nancy Grace

“For better or worse, Nancy Grace has played a key role in shaping modern American punditry, with millions of viewers looking to her as a sort of abrasive moral compass. A self-described “crusader for victims rights,” Grace arguably created more than a few new victims herself, and she vowed to continue her work after leaving her top-rated HLN series in October 2015. You know what they say, though: judge not lest ye be judged yourself. With that in mind, here’s a closer look at the untold truth of Nancy Grace…”

Suicides…shoddy, libel reporting…law suits, galore…a wide range of people [including employees] who hate her…possibly dishonesty, and exploiting her fiancé’s murder…

…and potentially, she farts like a mule…

…Why does none of this come off as a surprise to me?

Serious comment, though…

…This woman should be utterly ashamed of herself, for the way she’s spent years sensationalizing ongoing cases…in the worst ways, possible…

This person did not even behave like an actual show host…often attacking people, as though she were prosecuting a case on live television.

…You can tell when she “just knows” [or thinks she does] when someone is guilty…and she doesn’t even attempt to fake impartiality…and she is insanely ignorant…Which all lead to her incomprehensibly bad show.

…Did this woman ever watch herself, and comprehend what a train wreck she is?
