We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
With the evidence from the Podesta emails and this, it's REALLY clear that there is more than the bias of like minds. This is, as Jim points out above, collusion between the media and the Demonrats.
After the call with Dafna I published the stupid scoop. Then I did a gut check and over the next two hours I called 10 experienced prominent reporters and told them the story. They were all stunned by what Dafna did and encouraged me to share it publicly.
Maybe this is a good sign, but not only the author but ten of her colleagues thought it was unethical. That's a lot more than I would have been willing to expect.
I honestly think there is some sort of "dark web" site/chat room where they all coordinate their efforts and are given the days' talking points. All of what they say is too similar to have been independently thought up. Reference the post here the other day about all the lefty media talking heads saying "Trump has hit the wall" in unison. (Now I'm too stupid to know what the "dark web" actually is, but apparently there are parts of the internet that are blocked off from being able to be reached unless you have the right codes/encryption.)
There is very little left of a Free Press. Most of the "media" is owned by six or ten people. It is corporate controlled media mainly allied with the leftist party, leftist mentality, Globalist mentality. If the dem party was truly worried about the Rich getting richer and owning all the money, they would break up the "media" corporations. They would propose limits of how big corporations could become.
