Well, I can do the same thing you are doing and say:(...)
All you do here is posting fake news from right-wing propaganda sites that are designed to brainwash people like you, and dismiss all of it, just like you do with the things I brought up.
And I admit, it is exactly my impression of what's wrong in America: It's the right that is spoon-fed fake news and propaganda lies from right-wing sources that give a damn about truth or honest reporting, so much that the American right lives in an alternate reality that has nothing to do whatsoever with the reality the rest of the world is living in. It's been Trump who has constantly been lying and retweeting fake news and/or unconfirmed bogus stories during all his presidency, so much that the entire world is shocked that truth no longer plays any role whatsoever in American politics.
But hey, don't bother to address this point, it will bring us nowhere, because you won't be able to convince me with any more fake news or biased half-true stories you are digging up -- just like I won't convince you by digging up stories I think are honest news. It won't get us any further.
My point has been, a couple of postings above, that we are, just like so many people in America these days, in a debate deadlock -- each side has their sources they trust to be true, and each side considers the sources of the other side as "fake news".
So for the fourth time, I ask you: What do you propose to get out of this deadlock, when you accept that your sources will not convince anybody, since everybody on the opposite side believe they are fake news?
Or do you feel there is no need to get us, or your country, out of this deadlock and you are perfectly comfortable with both sides living in different realities where you cannot even agree what the facts are?
