    Leftist. I was subscribing to the Washington Post and the Atlantic during 2016 and they changed suddenly from seeming to have pretty neutral coverage to malign, malignant anti-Trump propaganda. I cancelled both, and a bunch of other papers and magazines as well.

    It's a problem now getting news of what is going on in the world, so tendentious are most of the so-called news outlets. TV is impossible. My solution so far is to limit myself to physical happenings, mostly in the U.S. That a train hit a garbage truck yesterday, no congressmen killed. That Trump spoke Tuesday night, nobody shot him or yelled much. I'm not interested in spin or political interpretation, just physical events, and that locally. No naked savages news from god-knows-where, no lurid crime/freak news, and certainly no polls, which are always lies.

    Right. By insisting on only minimal physical events news (verified), I am trying to do that. What a pickle we are all in these days with the fake news problem, especially those of us who have always followed the news, it's a habit. I had to give it up!

    Underlying the political slanting is the more severe problem that most "news" is designed to catch and keep our attention so they can accumulate numbers that impress advertisers to pay them, and then the advertisers sell to us. This overwhelming desire to make money off our attention -- attention is the currency of the Internet -- is the basic driver of fake news, lurid news, and ridiculous coverage of far-away places, what I call naked savages news. Almost none of it is important to us. All of it is to make money off us.

    Yes. And of course note the style of Melania's beautiful flowing dresses, red yesterday. That and verified physical events that everyone agrees with. We are really stuck for news till things change. That Wikipedia guy Jimmy Wales is trying a Wikitribune, but I am not satisfied it's much yet, and besides, it's British.

    We may have to give up being news hounds.

    Dale and I have already discussed Jones, he has his uses. I'm more worried about the gullible folks that believe in the MSM's trash.

    Right on, MisterBeale........Alex Jones isn't my source for the things that I know but his show and site throw out breadcrumbs of truth. They have to do so in order to be relevant. Jones lies by omission and that is my problem with him. He is the epitome of the term "controlled opposition".

    (I'm sure if she went in there, went to that site, and really dug she could find links from The Atlantic magazine, owners, editors, journalists, etc, we were discussing earlier and the CFR. She would be hard pressed with INFOWARS though.)
