Re: Headlines that signal that the story will be misleading and/or stupid

Sorting kids into public schools based on household income is 'immoral, discriminatory,' says advocacy group That's the headline. From Fox News. Haven't read the article yet, but I sense some stupidity coming just because no one does that. No one advocates it. Of course doing it would be immoral and...

Re: Planet America

Two teens have been arrested. A third man was arrested, but has since been released. So.....the guy that got tackled and beat up, probably wasn't one of the shooters. I've also read that the injured kids, or most of the kids, weren't injured by gunshots. They were knocked over by fleeing adults. So,...

Re: Planet America

In America, the biggest sporting event of the year is, of course, the Super Bowl. This year the victors were the Kansas City Chiefs. It's traditional to do a parade in the team's home city. So, Wednesday they had the traditional parade. It was followed by the traditional mass shooting where 1 person...

Re: Headlines that signal that the story will be misleading and/or stupid

From Fox News: Charlie Hurt: This is as close to treason as I can think. That kind of headline is bound to be followed by a heaping helping of stupid. After watching the video. (It showed up in my news feed, but the link was to a video.) It was seven minutes of double decker stupidity. It was Laura ...

Re: Planet America

I've watched Joel Ostein. My wife actually liked him and I watched one or two eposodes......errr.....I gues they were sermons? No, I like episodes better. He didn't seem awful. I would say he was no worse than insipid. He didn't seem all that preachy moralistic or the bad right wing type. He was mor...

Re: Headlines that signal that the story will be misleading and/or stupid

There weren't many people who voted for Ralph Nader, but there were enough to get George W. Bush elected. In 2016, there were enough Jill Stein voters to turn Michigan to a Trump state, although changing that wouldn't have changed the overall result. But....so it goes. That's our election process. U...

Re: Planet America

Yesterday, a woman brought a five year old boy to a church that holds 16,000 people. She proceeded to pull out a rifle and start shooting, but the armed guards of the church killed her in a shootout. The five year old was critically injured, and a few other people also suffered various gunshot wound...

Re: Headlines that signal that the story will be misleading and/or stupid

Final proof that Trump's appeal was never about the economy. - The Intelligencer. Most people who write about Trump's appeal do not understand Trump's appeal. This article (not read yet) may get it right, or might not. The fact that they are "proving" his appeal wasn't about the economy ma...

Re: Headlines that signal that the story will be misleading and/or stupid

Fascinating ruling. I haven't read every single word of it. I just skimmed it. However, I've never seen such a blatant FU to the Supreme Court of the United States. I have to wonder what they were thinking. In the end, it's destined to be overturned. It could just be plain old ego. They wanted to pu...
