Democratic Debate Notes by Jimmy Dore

  • Tim Ryan is an ignorant liar
  • Jake Tapper is a fake journalist working for a fake, corporate-sponsored “news” outlet
  • Delaney (???) is a useless hack
  • People such as Sanders and Warren, people with conviction and ideas and courage, conspicuously tower above this babbling fraternity of indoctrinated, beholden, well-compensated, compromised nitwits

The Plastic Industry’s Fight to Keep Polluting the World

Pushes to “recycle” plastics are one element of a massive, industry-led effort to suppress meaningful efforts to reduce plastic waste.

Yeah, keep recycling!  🙂  Instead of donating money to Bernie Sanders, for example, or becoming an educated voter and citizen and rightfully condemning with hellfire the corporations that have completely hijacked the world you live in and that governs you.  Don’t want to appear to be too extreme, right?

Word-swapping & being better off with no news than commercial “news”

The politics and business of health care, by Caitlin Owens. Weekday mornings

So, look at this paragraph:

Biden’s proposal is more ambitious than anything that was seriously on the table during the ACA debate, but looks decidedly moderate compared to Bernie Sanders’ plan — which is significantly more ambitious than almost any other health care system in the world.

It appears to me that the corporate-owned/corporate-controlled media have elected to swap out the word “worse” for “moderate”, and “better” for “ambitious”.  And I think the reason why they did that is because the de-facto tendency for corporate/conservative/status-quo/commercial media is to make it look like, “Gosh, it’s just too hard to do good things.  :-/ Sorry!  I mean, we just tried to do something good and that didn’t work, but now you want to do something *really* good?  How do you think *that* will turn out?  :-/  Yeah.  Now I’m really worried.  Let’s not do that.  That’s just too hard.  It might not work.”

Well, that’s weak.  🙂  And it seems like propaganda and not educational discourse.  So have fun reading your Axios and feeling like you are more aware than you were before you read it.  You were probably more correct in your thinking prior to reading it.  Remember the news that Fox News viewers were actually less informed than those who watch *none* of that garbage, commercial, cable-TV, non-local news.
