Attention Fox News: don't fuck with Canada

I'm having trouble tracking down Troy Hurtubise's "Don't fuck with Canada" YouTube response to Fox News host Greg Gutfeld's inflammatory commentary about the Canadian military on Red Eye. I'm sure the numerous violent threats that pepper the video might have something to do with why I can't find it anywhere, but I've never had this much trouble tracking down something that got a fair bit of press when it first aired... Can you help me out, hivemind?

Thinking through the Goldman Sachs charges

If I am a stockbroker whose clients have invested in Coca-Cola (for whatever reason), am I now guilty of a conflict of interest if I recommend to one or more clients (for whatever reason) to short it? if I sell Coke short in my own account? Don't the personal views and personal goals of the clients enter into this equation?

Trying to remember a daily curated news aggregator site

I am trying to remember the address of a website I used to use daily. It's a one-page site, updated early each morning with a selection of links to Australian and international news stories. It's not just an aggregator; the links are carefully chosen by a woman who I believe used to be a newspaper reporter. It's called something like 'morning news' or 'breakfast brief'. Maddeningly, it seems to be un-Googlable. Any ideas? Or, failing that, any suggestions for similar sites?

Just the Facts, Maam

[JournalismFilter]: On the surface, televised news in the USA has evolved to a point where the average person is subjected to an endless point-counterpoint debate neglecting the timeless "just the facts" ageless news reporter oath.
