  1. I don't really get statements like these. While both of those sites are certainly biased towards "left" and "right" Breitbart peddles in half truths and out right falsehoods. It also propagates divisive propaganda, in ways that the Huff Post doesn't even come close to.
  2. These are snappy cutesy terms that attempt to pigeonhole something pretty complex. However there is no doubt that facts don't seem to matter to a large group of people. This is not a new phenomenon. Seems to have existed for as longs as humans have walked on two legs. The social media bubbles IS a new thing, and it's very real. But, as you said, people have long done something similar with newspapers and such. However, they've never had the sheer amount of content to do it with as the do now. There has never been more information available for consumption than there is now, and a lot of people seem overwhelmed by it to the point of blocking out everything that isn't readily familiar. It's ironic that the internet has served to divide people, after seemingly bringing the entire world together for a few brief moment. The world wide web is a huge group hug that you happily jump into only to realize that everyone else has really really bad breath.
  3. It's time to admit that season 2 was the best season of this show.
  4. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    Seeing it 8:30 AM EST on Wednesday. So....there!
  5. LOL, Crowder over Melo? I can understand not being a CA fan, but don't be ridiculous.
  6. it IS early. usually the nba season starts the day before Halloween, doesn't it?
  7. US Elections - The white power-suit vs the white-power suit

  8. It's amazing how the American public's perception of Assange has flipped in the last year. He used to be a traitor to the Neoconservatives and the Tea Parry people, and a hero to the left of left lefties. Guess the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
  9. Sopranos- so awesome

    Season 2 is incredible. Season 3 might be a few steps behind, barring an episode or two.
  10. While this is true, i think the main problem is that everyone decided to jump on the serialized show bandwagon, and proceeded to over-saturate the market with mediocre (or flat out bad) content. There is still good fiction out there, its just lost in a sea of endless fucking television shows.
  11. Donald Glover's Atlanta on FX

    Agreed. Best show on tv right now, altho to be honest i dont know what 99% of the other shows out there are anymore. Post Peak Tv sucks. =(
  12. I'd love to read what this critic has to say but his ALL CAPS WRITING WITH HORRIBLE SPACING MAKE HIS ARTICLES A FUCKING MESS AND I CANT BE BOTHERED.
  13. i should have been more specific in the cause of my frustration here. FFS...It must suck to be a sociological illiterate and be so indignant so as to defend the indefensible.... its the same word... one spelling is a derivative of the other.... like Talking and Talkin'... They have the same meaning... it's not like one is a hateful slang word for African Americans, and the other means something entirely different... if you can't use either spelling for the same reason... they are the same word. Anyway i can understand the phonetic dissonance, even tho i have listened to some (shitty) british hip-hop and was able to tell the difference in their usage of the "ga" ending of the word. Back to Luke Cage...after Cottonmouth departed this show it went downhill SOO fast. I watched 8 episodes and don;t feel like watching another one.
  14. I don;t get it either, but im just dropping the matter. You can lead a horse to water, and you can't convince some people that two different words are actually two different words. ::shrugs
  15. It must suck to be hard of hearing AND to fail at reading. As i said above: there are two different words and YOU or I should not use either of them. No one outside of the African American community should.
