I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


I think it's more interesting not just to speculate on "what is the narrative today" but WHO is in charge of the narrative and WHY they want us to stampede in any particular direction.

Though I don't disagree that it would be interesting to know, I don't think it would matter.

It's not a secret that Bezos owns the WaPo, but that doesn't change anything.

And I'm sure he's pretty far down the ladder anyhow.

Are you too old to be familiar with Social Media?

Social Media is where many youths look to for their daily dose of Fake News. Like ABC, CBS, Tweeter, WaPo, NBC, Facebook, NYTimes, Instaspam, PBS, Snapchamp, and even Fox News now that Rupert handed it over to his Libtard sons.
However, for some reason, FNC is still the only outlet which is not part of the ENTERTAINMENT DEPARTMENT.

No, I just refuse to deal with it, the same way I don't use google for information. Anyone who signs up for social media and depends on it for information is a dolt as far as I'm concerned, because its algorithms are geared to put you in a personally-tailored echo chamber of things you're already interested in and opinions you already hold. And reality works nothing like that. If I want my thoughts echoed back to myself, I'll just ponder. If I want reality, I'll go hunting around as far and wide as I can to see what there is. Besides, signing in to social media is the same as giving yourself an electronically transmitted disease. And then google only feeds you the official-narrative-approved information.

MOST people still get their news from TV network news: https://www.poynter.org/newsletters/2020/america-is-watching-the-eveni
ng-news-again-tv-news-numbers-are-up-way-up
/ And I make a point of watching (or at least listening to) ABC and NBC while I'm doing chores, just to see what I'm supposed to be paying attention to.


But the NYTimes is (supposedly) America's paper of record, and the WaPo hopes to be the same for doings in Washington. And just to round out the list CNN is good for what I call raw meat splatter.

So, I'm tracking them here.

You must be confused.

I already explained to you that these social media outlets that you claim are news sources are merely social media entertainment venues.
TV Network News? They merely regurgitate what Amazon, Google, Facebook designate as allowable truths after distillation. None of them have had a News Department since the mid 1990's - they are all part of the ENTERTAINMENT DEPARTMENT.

WaPo and NYTimes also just spew whatever was approved for dispersal by Big Tech.

WaPo
White House, private firms developing plans for ‘vaccine passports’
https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2021/03/28/vaccine-passports-for

I just want to comment on the WaPo article. Unlike the mindless narrative drivel we get treated to every day, imo it's important news.

According to the various news items I looked through about this, the federal 'vaccination passports' push is - supposedly - in service to private companies, because they're 'demanding' it. Though why the federal government should put itself in their service instead of being in service to us citizens is a mystery, unless of course one makes the mental leap and understands that our government - even the democrats* - represents NOT US.

Hopefully it sparks significant pushback that has political force, even though it won't have Constitutional force. That Constitutional barrier was broken way back in the day (1980's) when corporations and other employers started insisting on mass drug testing. And a sharp divide was drawn between the Constitutional protections against the government, and the complete absence of them against private parties.

BTW, that intrusion has been extended to your employer being able to fire you for things you post on facebook on your own time using your own money (you have no freedom of expression with private parties), legal medical treatments and care you receive (like contraception), for actions you take that are recorded by private surveillance videos, etc. And of course businesses are allowed to harvest and sell private information about you. And finally, government is allowed to harvest whatever information is gathered by private entities, and to video/ camera surveillance you in public areas, because any protection you have is confined to the four walls of your curtained home, gathered directly by government. Though that hasn't seemed to stop the spook agencies from gathering emails, phone conversations and so on, illegally.

If democrats* don't do any different, how are they any better?

I've never disagreed that it could happen Jack, or even that it was happening. My only comment was that I didn't see any evidence of it yet. But it's been a possibility ever since when - and people have been talking about it for a long, long time - especially the people at Zero Hedge. So I've been making a point of looking for it.


So anyway, such a far-reaching program doesn't get whipped up in a couple of months. This has been going on for a while, even under St Trump.

There's still no mention of the fact that there's been an increase in US troops in Syria. There's been no mention that the US us still stealing Syria's oil, and depriving Syria - and Syrians - of national income. There's no mention of the brutal new sanctions the US has put on Syria. There's no mention of the starvation the US has caused in Syria with it's illegal troops, illegal occupation, illegal oil theft, and illegal 'group punishment' sanctions.

Seeing that you're just a lowly Russian troll, you probably don't get to read much free press. You can only parrot the propaganda your fascist overlords hand you.

Today Ultra-Libtard drug addict Black racist Islamist devotee Noah Green attacked and killed D.C. Police at the Capitol blockade.

M$M Fake News is reporting that they cannot find any link to extremist groups, and have scrubbed his social media posts. Because they cannot comprehend that Nation of Islam is extremist.

The legacy media (arm of the Democrat Party) has been the enemy of America for a decade or 2 by now. And also the most Anti-democratic and Anti-democracy.

The Democrat Party has been the enemy of America for generations by now, most clearly with the milestone of the Election of Slick Willie - and also the most Anti-democratic and Anti-democracy, and now they are the DeConstitutionalists.

And Libtards have been the enemies of America since their inception, as well as the most Anti-democratic and Anti-democracy.

Republicans say they vote for the GOP because the Democrats are terrible people. In reality they vote for the GOP because they are working class:

Why Republicans are the party of the White working class

Take a look at the Cooperative Election Study, which is a large academic survey of voters taken after each election, to better understand how little income matters to White voting patterns. https://cces.gov.harvard.edu/

Non-college White voters wanted no part of voting Democratic in 2020 House races, regardless of their income levels. White voters without a college degree favored Republicans by about a 26-point margin, if their family income was below the median. They voted Republican by a 31-point margin if their family income was above the median.

Among all White respondents, the Democratic margin increased by 39 points when respondents had a college degree.
The House margin among all White respondents shifted by 5 points toward the Democrats, when their family income was above the median compared to below.

It's not that higher income makes White voters more Democratic, but rather that education is such a powerful pull and more educated voters tend to be wealthier. This is why we see wealthier White areas trending Democratic and poorer areas trending Republican in recent years. The latter tend to be filled with less educated voters, while the former tend to have more educated voters.

In other words, income matters very little among White voters. Education means everything.

But in 2006, it was very different. White voters without a college degree actually favored Democrats by a 3-point margin, if their family income was below the median. White voters favored Republicans by a 13-point margin, if their family income was above the median.

In fact among all White respondents, the Democrats' margin increased by 14 points depending on whether their family income was below or above the median. It increased by just 5 points, depending on whether they had a college degree.

That is, income seemed to have a greater effect on voting patterns than did education levels in 2006, which is very different from 2020. When you had districts that had below-average education levels and income levels, there was a decent shot they'd vote Democratic, just like Iowa's 2nd and Ohio's 18th Districts did in 2006. This isn't the case today.

Back in 2006, Democrats could rightly argue they had a lot of support by at least one definition of the White working class.

Today, Republicans can rightly claim to have the support of the White working class based on either an economic- or education-based definition.

^ Lies.

Imagine the hypocrisy of a government who will allow businesses to card people to get a job or buy groceries, but won't card people to vote in elections and gives millions of non-citizens free money from taxpayers.
