very well said and i learnt some new things! also you gave me the idea of what im going to do my casualty essay on.
@GraveDoll Thank you so much for your kind comment and I am pleased that you found it useful. Best of luck on your essay.
So now we don't just disagree on how to do things, now there's just a complete lack of respect for opposing viewpoints because each side thinks the other side is completely brainwashed by the biased reporting of their preferred news outlet, and people get malicious about it because half a nation of perceived useful idiots are fucking up the way they believe or are influenced to believe we should be running things. It's a mess. These States of America are anything but United, I'll tell you that much.
Newspaper retractions are bullshit because they're not legally required to give it equal space and positioning as the original story. They should have to by law. If you print a front page story with a giant header, and then have to retract it or any PART of it, you should be required to put it in the same place - front page - same print size. If not, you get fined HUGE bucks. But no... you can bury a retraction anywhere in the paper. Crock of shit.
it always was though... in 1856 the washington post ran a story for a week about the space monkies that were living on the moon

@Porcelaine If you want.
Even if their reporting is politically agreeable, an inability to provide objective information is harmful for everyone
