Well, though millennials think capitalism’s goose is cooked, it appears that it’s here to stay as the FCC allows Time-Warner to be acquired in a super-merger. The catch? They can’t impose data caps on customers. Well, not for seven years, anyway.
Bitcoin has also failed to disrupt the capitalist system, but perhaps it can be salvaged for parts.
But, hey, at least things in the media are starting to look up.
Except for Twitter.
Maybe digital publications are doomed because ads make content unreadable on mobile devices.

Tennessee governor, Bill Haslam, is signed a law allowing licensed counselor to turn away LGBT people seeking their services. Extra terrible because if there’s ever a time you need someone to talk to it’s when your own government is insistent on reminding you you don’t matter.
Some good news though: a North Carolina minister is turning up the heat on the United Methodist Church as he plans to officiate a gay marriage despite church position.
