    I have had occasion to take a bit of offense to the mainstream media and it's liberal presentation of certain issues, but not all, in a more general sense. They are more than offset by radio talk show hosts.

    Free yourself from tyranny of broadcast, and listen to podcasts. There’s some very goid Podcasters out there, trying sincerely to bring rational reality to reporting of events and balancing out mainstream media.

    I welcome your discussion of either of the two hot topic new stories I referenced above. Specific discussion where you bring in facts you believe to be correct.

    I wonder how many people listened to Alex Jonesí podcasts? Those people were getting such great information that he now has a nearly one billion dollar defamation judgement against him.

    Alex Jones is not one of the Podcasters who sincerely attempts to bring rational discussion to world events.

    I imagine at least some of his listeners would strenuously disagree with you.

    Iris: pretends that everyone in the world is as capable of deducing who is a rational podcaster and who isnít.

    Jp: points out that that isnít the case.

    Iris: gets annoyed.

    JP now: if everyone was as capable of rational thought in determining what is real and what is fake news there would not have been a dude with a gun showing up at the pizza parler in DC to save the children in the nonexistent basement. (Another of shitbag podcaster Jonesí lies).

    I know someone who is an honest-to-goodness Flat Earth podcaster. He has lots of followers, and the whole thing does not appear to be a joke. They actually believe the Earth is flat (well, it's more complicated than that, but...), and reinforce each others' beliefs.

    There are some things we clearly didn't think through enough when we invented the Internet.
