Id take it as a yes -- at least I haven't become sucked into it. If you have, well I already am familiar with your views and I believe Veritas and many of the other sites you visit (Jew York Times, again?) are pushing on you only what you want to hear -- it's confirmation bias. I mean, I don't blame you, it's the same with the sites I visit.

But Veritas are decidedly biased hypocrites, how can you not see this? It's just dripping with it. Honestly, truly, can you not see that?

I mean I can visit WaPo and see any number of sensationalist headlines and understand that they are sensationalist. I can visit the Independant which aligns with my beliefs but see that they pervert headlines from poorly interpreted fact and can come to the conclusion they are not a great news site. It's innate and not all that difficult.

So many of these conspiracy websites use actual duping mechanisms to convince their users they're being duped by far more reputable sources. They're pushing an agenda harder than any other under the guise they are doing the opposite.

The NYT is written with bias. Thankfully the President and his chronies do all the things themselves to make them look bad. Bias is understandably applied. Sad!
don't mind me I'm just :ship: posting

Did you hear about TYT's firing of that jordan douchebag? He was the most biased reporter they had, so good on their part. Also, according to the intercept, president trump is putting together a private cia force.

Using TYT as news? Is that reliable generally?

I'm sorry Cenk, you're not young anymore.

A healthy dose of apathy might not hurt either.


I was a democrat and couldn't stand how anyone who had an opinion other than their own was a racist bigot or an uneducated voter as you put it. This election changed me.

and here we go with the "I'm a black lesbian trans woman who voted for Obama in 2012 but voted for Trump in 2016 cause of how dissapointed I was with democrats". You really thunk that gains you credibility?

I was a democrat until I saw the light and realised that democracy is inferior to totalitarianism. As a representative of the Swedish people I support a world ruled by a global caliphate!
