(MTRgirl101) High School "science" with Daria, Beavis, and Butthead means failing and making the best of it. What science project could do that? Mrs. Dickie finds out as Daria experiments with their stupidity. Is genetic, environmental, or both?

International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State
Mandate: (1) To lawfully prosecute those people [priests, bishops, cardinals, popes,] and institutions responsible for the exploitation, trafficking, torture, and murder of children, past and present, and (2) To stop these and other criminal actions by church and state, including by disestablishing those same institutions.

Fox News has apologized for broadcasting false information about Muslims in the wake of the Paris attacks. Last weekend, self-described terrorism expert Steve Emerson claimed on air that parts of Europe, including the entire English city of Birmingham, were totally Muslim areas where non-Muslims do not go. Emerson was forced to apologize, but the claim about so-called "no-go zones" was repeated by other Fox guests and anchors.

On Saturday, according to a CNN Money tally, Fox News took time out of four broadcasts to apologize for reports on Muslims. Jeremy Scahill, co-founder of The Intercept, discusses the rise of so-called "terrorism experts" by Fox News and other major cable networks.

In two recent interviews with CNN, Scahill has criticized the news giant and others for their use of "on-air analysts who also work in the private sector and make money on the idea that we should be afraid." He also responds to blistering criticism from FBI chief James Comey of using an anonymous al-Qaeda source in reporting on the Charlie Hebdo massacre, and analyzes what al-Qaeda’s claim of responsibility will mean for the U.S. drone war in Yemen.

Below the billboard, they found brand new graffiti on a rooftop. People magazine tweeted a photo of the billboard before it was covered up. More
