I like Jake Tapper and that's about it. Anderson Cooper lost all credibility a long time ago, but I used to like his show.
I like World News with David Muir on ABC. Gives a basic rundown every night and there is no time for speculating and droning. I think he does a good job of quickly presenting the cliff notes of both sides of a story.
If I want to know more I have to use the computer.
I believed the story of how the 'civil war' came about watching this guy on CNN every night until I started ......... thinking! How does this guy get in and out of Syria? They would not allow this. That is when I started seeking alternated sources for information. Not just away from CNN, ALL of the Western media outlets peddling this lie.
It seemed reasonable. The police taking those children was a match to a flame. A bomb, really, when supposedly peaceful protesters were gunned down in the streets. The Arab Spring cause moderate opposition in Syria to rise up. So on and so forth the tale seemed quite real.
But it wasn't.
And here is Anderson Cooper starting to plant the seeds into the American Psyche every night in 2011. It went on for months, every single night, until this guy was proved to be a FAKE.
Now it's like the buzz leading up to the Iraq war. Yeah, yeah I've seen this movie before. I know how it ends.
Trump reversed his stance on every single one of the issues listed above. You got scammed, not us. You are the ones that are unhinged.
You're a funny guy @John T Ford. A funny, funny, funny guy.
Some of us want to know truth, as near as we can get to it anyway, for varying reasons. Some people just want to believe what they believe and not be challenged since what can be done anyway? Peace of mind.
My father strikes a very nice balance imo. He reads and listens from different sources and knows more of reality than most people, viewing everything said by anyone critically and always wanting both sides.
But he doesn't let it eat up his mind. On here to often we get way too upset when other people don't agree with us. We act like someone is going to ask PH members what do we think? And proceed accordingly. We argue as if our conclusions matter to anyone!
I will never forget her feeling that I cared more about 'my half' of HER house over her (then) current living standard.
