    I had my cable TV disconnected about 1 1/2 years ago & haven't read a Newspaper in 10 years, so I'm fairly well insulated from the censored/slanted propaganda the Not-So-Main-Stream-Media continues to spew.
    There are too many conservative News sources on the I-Net & AM Radio who have no 'Agenda', besides honestly reporting worthwhile events.

    Also. I got tired of paying for a couple hundred channels of PC, Liberal programming I couldn't stand to watch.
    Now I can watch anything "I CHOOSE"... WHEN I choose, on Netflix for $8./mo.
    Life is good. (I still hear more 'stupid' than I want), but still 90% less 'LIES & GARBAGE' than the average schmuck.

    I know what you mean about reading the comments sections. I agree there are a lot of rude people with keyboards. Downright scary actually.

    Most recently the one about the new NRA Spokesperson. Sadly though just about every comment section of any online article is oozing stupid and or just plain hateful stuff. I posted this thread in jest. But there's a little underlying frustration as well.

    I know how you feel. I'm so used to the rampant stupidity epidemic in America, that most comments on the article don't surprise me.

    One of the things that I like about this forum is that, generally, even if I strongly disagree with what people say, their posts are rational and thoughtful.

    If the comments on news articles do this to you, you had better pray that nobody post a YouTube video.

    I live near Seattle, so I can totally empathize with you. Sometimes I read the comments on the local news outlets, and it's a similar feeling to looking at those websites with graphic car wreck photos or industrial accident photos. They make you kinda sick, but you can't look away...

    Sometimes I read the comments on the FOX news web site. Lots of Liberals troll them and it's interesting to see how many weirdo's that are attracted to Liberalism.

    If you think the comments about news articles are bad, try reading the comment sections under the comic strips. Reality is for those who cannot handle drugs!
