Pizzagate: A slice of fake news
I've always wondered about Pizzagate and why this ridiculous child sex trafficking ring conspiracy theory blew up so big that a gunman went to "save the kids". Turns out it all started with the letters "CP", which conspiracy theorists claim was shorthand for "Child Pornography". Maybe the Clinton campaign should have eaten less cheese pizza. The irony is that with the Epstein case unravelling, the conspiracy theorists probably are like "told you so".
Hedwig’s Lost Van Gogh
by Revisionist History
How do we value art? What is the value of a minor work by a major artist? A tale of Nazi art plundering, museum art hoarding and the impact of laws that blocked reparations. It’s fascinating that the only painting the family managed to recover was not from an art gallery but from a private company that did a review of its holdings and decided that keeping plundered art was a violation of its corporate code of ethics. I heard “The mayor and the art heist mystery” from Outlook a few weeks ago (@podysseyapp: https://podyssey.fm/episode/id8506391) which does not appear to have been about Nazi art plundering but the same laws came into play. These two episodes bookend each other. I’d also like to draw your attention to this epsiode of 99% Invisible from my Libraries list: 354- Weeding is Fundamental from 99% Invisible on @podysseyapp: https://podyssey.fm/episode/id3639226. Cultural institutions are better at collecting than letting go.
