US takes down Iran-linked news sites, alleges disinformation:

Quote:
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — American authorities seized a range of Iran’s state-linked news website domains they accused of spreading “disinformation” on Tuesday, a U.S. official said, a move that appeared to be a far-reaching crackdown on Iranian media amid heightened tensions between the two countries.

Re: In other news

I don't think the NYC mayoral election warrants its own thread, but the results were pretty interesting.

Kathryn Garcia ran as the competent manager of city government. She had the endorsement of the NYT and dominated Manhattan. Maya Wiley ran as the progressive. She dominated the affluent and hipster areas of Brooklyn, which are mostly white. Eric Adams ran as the former cop who would stand up for minority communities without defunding the police. He dominated the outer boroughs, especially in neighborhoods with large non-white populations and higher crime rates. Yang did OK in specific pockets with large Asian and Jewish populations, but on balance, he seems to have lost a lot of votes to the people who were inclined to vote for someone like Garcia.

This was NYC's first experiment with ranked choice voting. Adams got the most first place votes (31.7%) and appears highly likely to win the race after the ranked choice votes are counted. Wiley and Garcia received 22.2% and 19.5% of the first place votes, respectively. Yang received 11.7% of the first place votes and has conceded already.

For me, the election highlights how much ground progressives still have to cover with lower income voters, especially non-white, lower income voters. It's hard to say how much Wiley was hurt by the current mayor, Bill De Blasio, who ran as a progressive and who was widely regarded as terrible.
