Bloomberg News is one of many outlets praising Loretta Lynch, President Obama's Attorney General nominee, for her work at the International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda (ICTR).

These lies have been used to justify nearly 20 more years of war, conflict, and resource theft in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the death of millions more Rwandan and Congol...

Reviving an Explosive Topic: Reducing Work Hours - by Astrid Fadler
In truth, the introduction of the eight-hour day, the free Saturday and the fifth vacation week (in Austria) did not cause economic crises. Reduced working hours means more distribution justice for the general public and more quality of life for workers. The efficiency of employees increases and the danger of accident declines through reduced working hours.

The Rebirth of the One-Thousandth Society - by Matthias Schnetzer and Markus Marterbauer
The richest thousandth (0.1%) increased their share in the total wealth very intensely since the 1980s. Their share is as much as the bottom 90%. While the millionaires increased their wealth enormously, the mass of the population is exposed to the continuing economic crisis. The disinformation campaigns of owners of capital against a sensible taxation of mammoth assets has the wide support of the media.
