Chemmy, I used to believe and agree with the news. But that was long ago when integrity, fairness, facts and the truth meant something to journalists. These days? I seldom agree with anything in the news -- regular media or social media. It's mostly just partisan claptrap.
Again, you don't agree with the news. The news is the news. It's your interpretation of the news that's changed.

Put another way, the news you agree with says the news that Toledo agrees with, is wrong?

If one news source says that AOC pulled an FAQ because it was accidentally uploaded and another news source says "AOC pulled the FAQ because she's trying to take over the country with her socialism," then the latter is opinion. I'm not sure why you guys struggle with the differences between news and opinion, but you do.

In your defense, the 24 hour news networks are really good at blending opinions into news.

Most are really good a blending opinions. Sells content, = revenue.

News is nothing but propaganda....

Put Adam Schiff on T.V. and you make news... albeit fake news. STILL WAITING...

Put AOC on TV and you make news.,,, albeit nutty, and from a wild-eyed, dope smoking socialist.

News isn't what you want to believe. News is contrived and manufactured by whatever network wants to air it.

Still having trouble with what's a fact. Fact is, only DeLPS have ownership of Green New Deal.

If you can't accept that as a fact, well, welcome to the realm of intellectual pygmies.

This is 100% true. And I wish we had another option to combat climate change that did not include 1. Outlaw gas powered cars and steaks or 2. Climate change is socialist propaganda and doesn't exist.

The choices for rational people are limited because the Republicans have been denying the truth for 10 years.

Get. On. Board.

Oh, yeah...Libs are the only rational people.

I guess that is true if you believe in unicorns, pretty colored balloons, gnomes and Christmas wish lists.

The other answer is that rational people can disagree

it is true that most stupid people are conservative." - John Stuart Mill
