The level of discourse in this thread is concerning.
It seems to me that people in general are not really interested in the truth of the issues we discuss. Those that decry fake news are at the front of
the line to support it when it satisfies their confirmation bias, and are the first in line to deflect and dismiss when it's shown what they believe
is a steaming pile of stinky "fake".
Also, while I think we need to hold the MSM's feet to the fire when they fumble the ball, they have become the scapegoat for the people I describe
above. Don't like what's being reported...it's fake news. Cnn is the devil, etc.
Point in all this: Politics has made people dishonest and intellectually lazy. They want to be spoonfed and it pisses them off when they are spoonfed
a truth that does not fit their palate.
