    Seems a lot of legalese, yea it's a legal trial so hey legalese, but he already got off. I mean most people already concede the case was decided on narrow technicalities and that is just more but it's still messed up.

    Not comparable at all. And, I don’t agree at all with the dress comment.

    haha, it was less bad than the ny post article to get the point across though, I didn't fly right off immediately into crazyville where it was all a giant class conspiracy, somehow.

    But then there are these assessments:

    In any case, I would not have seen CNN's belated informational video if I hadn't come upon the RCP post. I've relied heavily on the New York Times since I was a teenager, but I also rely on knowing their biases and, more and more, noticing their omissions.

    I've long felt that people often minimize articles or opinion pieces based simply upon their biases. In this case I think what they should be wondering is why did they not see this admission in their favorite news sources? There's something to be learned from that.

    Good for you. We all have to do some careful screening of our news sources. They all have bias, we just have to remember their bias.

    I don’t watch tv news at all and haven’t in decades, and I seldom consume traditional news outlet sources any more.

    It’s a great time for selective perception along imaginary tribal lines. A riot can be a mostly peaceful demonstration or an insurrection, depending on your point of view. One idiot can shoot a few other idiots at a place none of them should be, and all of them get to be heroes in somebody’s eyes and deadly threats in others’.

    There’s obviously money to be made in the bias confirmation business.

    To say they shouldn't be there is ridiculous. People have a right to protest. But going around a protest as a civilian openly brandishing a gun, who does that. Of course it's intimidating, but the kid wasn't the brightest bulb. But it's like I showed up at a protest with a backpack that looked like it had a bomb. It would be like okay, this just escalated from protest to potential terrorism incident.
