The USSA, here we are. Do we have to change our name now, to be politically correct like all other recent name changes?
When your reporters carry law degrees they are no longer reporters. They aren't interviewing, they are interrogating. Always gunning for an angle, that one clip that goes viral so that the big machine gets its sales revenue. PBS is the news we've been watching because it is calm. It's old school reporting. Is it biased, yes, most likely. But it is calm, no unnerving excitement in the voice of the anchor. Who, what, when, where. That's reporting. the "why" is left up to those listening/watching. The listener/viewer can then draw their own conclusion from the facts. That's reporting. I used to pull stories of the AP wire when I worked in radio. The AP wire stuck to the facts at that time. That was 20 years ago now.I get Epoch feed - they're not unbiased. But I've concluded there's no such thing as unbiased coverage. You have to read it all (from far left to right) and make up your own mind. Weird - we live in times where more people have more access to more info than ever before - not even close actually, MEGA information - and we live in a time where it's harder than ever to actually figure out what's going on. Didn't take people long to figure out they could feed whatever they wanted into the system, and people would not only believe them, but they'd pass it along to others as "truth". I've maintained it from the beginning - we will come to regret the rise of social media. The fall of 'traditional' media is directly related to the rise of social media. When any idiot with a camera becomes the "reporter" -- all reporting standards go to hell in a hand basket.
I believe Twitter's banned Trump til the end of his term....
I'd like term limits too. But with less time, they would be pressured to become corrupt faster and be more brazen about it....
Once again, I say, term limits would stop a lot of these types of shenanigans. These people just get too much influence and power when they are in there for decades.
This.Two 4 year terms for President; one 6 year term for Senators; one 4 year term for representatives. No retirement program, no ongoing medical coverage after they leave. Drop what you're doing - serve your country - and go back to your life.
TOTALLY agree on insider trading -- part of what should happen upon being elected to any public office is that investments should be required to be handled through a blind trust. So the elected official can't make decisions about any investments. Too much conflict of interest at all levels.
