    I disagree. Itís not that people are stupid. Itís that people think they are smarter then everyone else. You tell people they got the exclusive news and other people fools they eat it up

    a perfect storm of a divisive election during a pandemic in the midst of civil unrest and people had far too much time indoors with their social media......
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    It was bad in 2016 as well so I don't think it's largely to do with COVID. The trend will be more people getting involved with politics because of how polarizing politics is. Celebrities want to run more than ever and with social media during elections, you can't open a single app without something political going on.

    Political engagement has been up since Trump won. Itís why we saw 2018 and 2020. Itís what Republicans are fighting to make voting harder. Things donít trend well for them when more people vote.

    people are turning away from MSM where?
    it has been easier than ever to get misinformation from people in media as well as those with influential power, social media. especially twitter with small amount of characters to provide information.

    Just because you bow to the altar of MSM doesn't mean that everyone else does.

    I agree completely. The dangerous ones are always the ones that claim to have the exclusive truth and see through the BS

    Twitter has made things way worse. All these journalists try to rush to break stories first and when they are wrong it still spreads like wildfire. It gives Trump validation when journalists badly misrepresent something and heís allowed to say fake news etc

    when they rush and get something wrong, that has much more influence than IF they make a correction.

    There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    But not the dude running against her who was 18 and knocked up a 14 year old who later killed herself. Weird how Matt Gaetzís protege didnít get canceled. Just the lady who said Trump didnít actually win the election.
