Returning to our theme of providing culture to our readers, here is a mashup of an art form—Opera—that screams “Class!” (but not in the way Ms. Farkas used to holler at us in sixth grade; more in the way that being chauffeured in a Bentley does) and the news form—TV anchor—that insists “Seriously!” With a nod to Adam Sandler’s SNL character Operaman, the group Operatico Politico presents a roundup of recent events involving Trump.

We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
