You are keeping up your reputation as a purveyor of conspiracy theories and fake news. CNN has a bias (most news sources have a little bias), but it is not off the cliff. InfoWars is off the cliff.
    You are right none of that is true.

    Uh, wrong. None of what you said is true.

    InfoWars epitomizes fake news. You continue to demonstrate you are a conspiracy theorist with no interest in reality.

    I don't ever remember identifying fake news as being a subject that needed to be taught, but more and more schools are introducing it.

    And yes, the social media is a lot to blame. No matter how wingnutty a point of view you want to have, you can find sources and fellow wingnuts that will offer that and support it.
    Bingo. We have to teach KIDS that there is fake news, identify it and FACT CHECK 'the news'.

    Anyone remember when the scouts were giving their kids SOURCING for good civics, researching? They named wikipedia. The RIGHT went batshit. Said it was TOO LIBERAL.

    That's exactly what someone who doesn't take measures to protect himself from chemtrails and satellite brainwave broadcasts would say.

    Who raised infowars in this thread? Wasn't me...

    Maybe if you weren't coming at this from such a prejudicial and bigoted perspective, there might be some discussion to break through your extremist position.

    You were clearly looking in the mirror when you said that. I have expressed neither bigotry nor prejudice, nor expressed any extremist position. I rely on moderate sources; you rely on extreme ones.

    Are you sure?

    I mentioned the disparity between observed fact and media reporting.

    That's when someone injected Alex Jones into the conversation.

    From that point on, people keep telling me my position, which I had never stated, sourced, or even mentioned prior.

    Yes, bigotry in that you show a strong intolerance of anything not CNN or anyone that disagrees with your opinion.

    Yes, prejudice, because you prejudged other people before even trying to establish facts.

    And yes, it is extremist in that there is no moderation, no tolerance of anything other than your expressed view.
