Calling CNN ‘a thinking man’s reality show’ is in fact rather profound - Phillip K Dick himself would struggle to put it better

Surprise surprise - OneCoin & Ruja Ignatova appears in the #FinCENFiles. (Bank of Mellon, NY filed 2 SARS relating to $137m).

That’s what the national broadcaster is for - it would be a public service to help the song (which is genius) escape from its Top Gear dungeon.
