When Breaking Bad ended in 2013 we were all sad. We didn’t know what would fill that void in our life, or the hour that was dedicated to watching Jesse call Walter a bitch. Now instead of re-watching Breaking Bad on Netflix, there is the spin off, Better Call Saul. The first episode premiered on February 8th […]
On Thursday evening, ABC News director of polling Gary Langer appeared on behalf of the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy (ISERP) to deliver a lecture on the Whys and Wherefores of Newspolling.

Now, a Chicago […]

Almost a week ago, the site’s normal interface disappeared, replaced by a message that reads “r.i.p. b@b…46,848 posts…down for reconstruction, come back soon…” Bwog knows via comments that some of its readers share its curiosity about the site’s fate.
