So I read through this entire article about phone thieves reprogramming victims' voicemail accounts to activate collect calls to distant nations, racking up tens of thousands of dollars in bills for the victims, which AT&T is insisting that they pay. If I was a victim, sure I'd be worried about having to pay the money (AT&T will probably waive it in the end), but you know what would also concern me? That the bastards who did it be captured, since we know the number from which they made the call. (You don't make 95 hours in calls from a pay phone.) Comments?

Someone forgot to tell AT&T that the concept of Caveat Emptor was dead; oh, no, that's right, they just don't care.

Fake News

With outlets like Newsmax and OANN still not acknowledging that Biden defeated Trump, and people increasingly preferring fantasy over reality in their news (this meme captures the state of things right now), I wonder: How long could a news network get away with outright fabrication? Go »
