So commentary is a reliable 'fact'?


No, but I would watch it to see what he was quoting. He typically reads reports. Then Iíd discuss. Thatís all. *Shrug....*

Journalists, despite their bias, to give the user a perspective, present or at least seem to present both sides of the story. Objectivity is at least shown as to be attempted.
Opinion writing and commentary are not journalism.

It is not a twisted or other hidden metaphor laden question. It means what it reads.

The people have the monopoly. Or God does.

Itís not a partisan issue, regardless of opinions.

The people have parties, more than 2, who look after their causes.

There is a uniparty - full of neoliberal fake-wokes and neoconservative war-hawks - who seem agreeable across the isle with every bad policy, who would love to think they hold a monopoly.

I understand. I donít disagree. Iím just saying to think Tim wouldnít provide any evidence with his milk-toast perspective wouldnít cross my mind.

Tim hardly has an opinion for many things but loves to interview and review.

It's not in dispute that people's welfare is at the heart of both left and right wings of political leanings just their methods/policies of getting there?

When liberals advocate for gay rights, the peopleís welfare is being protected.  When the right advocates for religious liberty, the peopleís welfare is at heart.

When neocons advocate for endless war, the people get hurt. When neolibs advocate for cancel-culture people get hurt.

I felt this was encouraging today in an odd sort of way. Relatable, even if I was never a Rush fan.

Don't you reckon, behind those labels - liberals, socialists, communists, Zionists, elitists, convicts, neocons, woke, activists etc.. there's actual humans that exist and they got some sorta grievance?

Of course. Donít you get that impression from me, or what are you driving at?

Often these are terrorized victims of their leaderís confusing, manipulative propaganda, or they are dealing with real-world violent oppression.

Am exchanging views. No driving anyone anywhere. Just cold convo.

No one disputes people who chose whomever they choose, have a reason, some sorta grievance. Elections just reflect the popular choice in general across the globe. Grievances, perceived or real, are manipulated by the political leaders aren't they?

Absolutely. 👍

Speaking of grievances... check the headline I pasted...

Crazy, no?

Is that from a mainstream/accountable media source?

Love your poem. But my feeling is that if they saw only one instead of many, thatís explaining their sad predicament. 💔

Who holds the mainstream accountable? Money?
