    Do you really think you are accessing the Truth from your News sources? It makes a great advert phrase like "Democracy Dies in Darkness" or some such BS.

    It is not a new thing -
    Lippmann examined the coverage of newspapers and saw many inaccuracies and other problems. He and Charles Merz, in a 1920 study entitled A Test of the News, stated that The New York Times' coverage of the Bolshevik Revolution was biased and inaccurate. In addition to his newspaper column "Today and Tomorrow", he wrote several books.

    of course he also said
    Lippmann said that mass man functioned as a "bewildered herd" who must be governed by "a specialized class whose interests reach beyond the locality." The elite class of intellectuals and experts were to be a machinery of knowledge to circumvent the primary defect of democracy, the impossible ideal of the "omnicompetent citizen".

    It's not "News..." or "Politics..." relevant.

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I like the dont feed the Trolls Sign. The green is very pleasant and who ever painted the letters did a great job. It is pleasing on the eyes and nice to know that someone cared to put in that much effort to keep people from feeding Trolls and making them fat. Thats my take

    And telling people that their takes is not related to the thread is a take that is not related to the thread

    Never said it was not a "Nice Enough..." sign.

    It's just not "News..."/"Politics..." relevant, and only clogs a thread up when folks have obviously made their respective calls when it comes to interacting with the user in question.

    That said, I'm just clogging things up even further. So, I'm just going to let the aspect that I mentioned be after this.

    I don't like to assume that the people telling lies don't know they're lying, the reason things like Q or the big lie gain a following is because people realize they can get what they want from it.

    Maybe someone whispered in her ear that she was causing too much trouble.

    Exactly. If anything, Qpublicans often double down on their vulgarity rather than issue apologies, and Boobert is a first class example of the party’s nastiness.

    She apologized to the "Muslim community " but not to Omar.

    The MSM is far from perfect, but I think it's funny that this always seems to come from people who get their 'news' from far less reliable sources yet are perfectly fine with believing them.
