    educating people who only get their news from the trad media, will be almost impossible. The trad media has inoculated people from ever realizing the truth. It has done so by the slanted way it portrays events and happening and people caught up in those events. Weather folks never acknowledge global warming. The ads are in stark contrast written by pr folks to soothe people about any hint of stain on a company's escutcheon and assure people that Exxon is truly looking out for the interests of the planet and all the people on it.

    We've even had people gush over Cheney coming out of the woodwork protecting his handiwork ON THIS SITE!

        one there was a discussion about Cheney branding Snowden a traitor because the latter mentioned hacking China's database. Now I don't know 1) what Cheney said, only got hearsay (I couldn't stand to listen to him at all) and 2) I don't know what Snowden said and that too, to me was hearsay.

        However two commenters were commenting that Cheney had the right of it. Now Cheney calling somebody else a traitor is not news, not new news and certainly not even worthy of news.  But the trad media was treating it as such. And so some of our own dKosians lapped it up as if it were cream and not sour milk.
