Default AARP is Fake News!

Imagine that you were arrested, convicted and punished of breaking a law that doesn't exist. Does that even happen in Russia?



There is no rule against "graphic images." For your convenience,

If you do a word search of "graphic", you will see that the word does not appear on those webpages.

You are giving away your age...

I was part of a group on FB that shared recipes and mostly pics of food and they were so irrational in how they did things that people got the 24 hour boot for saying they didn't like something... Not in any kind of rude way, just saying it... Someone would cry to the mods they were offended and off you would go. I unsubbed in about 2 weeks... to sappy for me.

Unlike your website, AARP is a political lobbying group with over a billion dollars of annual income. It's immorality influences the U.S. government.

My age is in my banana.org profile and any young whippersnapper can join the AARP forums for free. It's, maybe, 90% liberals and 10% conservatives. The liberals have a fascinating way of ganging up on conservatives. If you are a conservative and a glutton for punishment, join the AARP Political Forum.

They like to use shame, emotion and peer pressure on you. Those things have little effect on me, I like facts... I hate the way they do it. I see right thru their propaganda. Not that the other side is any better, just different. Find me an honest politician and I will find you santa claus.

The media bias chart was the biggest piece of liberal comedy I've seen recently!

The Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC offer "fair interpretations of the news"!

ROTFLMAO!

Default Re: AARP is Fake News!

I notice that MediaBiasChart.com rates "MediaBiasChart.com" in the middle grey circle . So, is MediaBiasChart.com fake news?

I submit that the people behind MediaBiasChart.com do not have the intellectual capacity to detect fake news. They rate NBC (broadcast) near the middle top. I have often heard NBC reporters refer to Trump as "racist" which is a very ambiguous catchphrase used by the left. "Racist" is extra ambiguous because "race" is ambiguous.

rac·ist

noun

1.
A. a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races.
B. a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

adjective

noun: racist; plural noun: racists; adjective: racist

1.
A. showing or feeling discrimination or prejudice against people of other races.
B. believing that a particular race is superior to another.

Definition of race

1 : a breeding stock of animals

2 a : a family, tribe, people, or nation belonging to the same stock

b : a class or kind of people unified by shared interests, habits, or characteristics

3 a : an actually or potentially interbreeding group within a species; also : a taxonomic category (such as a subspecies) representing such a group

b : breed

c : a category of humankind that shares certain distinctive physical traits

4 obsolete : inherited temperament or disposition

5 : distinctive flavor, taste, or strength

NBC not only pretends to know what was on Trump's mind when he said, "s-hole countries" but, also pretends that the audience's interpretation of race coincides with Trump's, which may or not be 2. a., 2. b., 3. a., 3. b., or 3. c.. And, NBC pretends that their interpretation of racism, 1. A. or 1. B., is the same as the audience's. That constitutes very bad journalism.

Hi Richard as I looked at the box it looked 75% in the yellow box and only 25% in the orange! IMHO no part of it belonged anywhere near the yellow box.

I'll confess that I don't own a TV and so my experience with network news is literally only passing ... as in passing through a hotel lobby.

My main news source is Reuters -- https://www.reuters.com -- pretty much unembellished reporting. For science I'll look at Phys.org -- although one needs be wary of sources that appear. Beyond that I'm far more interested in what's happening outdoors.

Richard to not watch the news is not a bad thing altogether. Most all the media is driven by sensationalism and they really don't do much investigative journalism any more.

What's going on in your yard is far more educational than the drival you are likely to encounter on the nightly news.

I still want to make out your way to see your place. It's on my bucket list!

I can't stand all the hype, extreme bias and contrived emotional heartstring tugging on video news... I prefer to read my news online. Doesn't matter much where as cutting thru the bs is much easier in print, at least for me. Ads disguised as news annoys the heck out of me, and are happening all over these days. (Example... "Scientists make breakthru discovery in cancer research = retired labrat writes book on his opinion of what may cure cancer to create nest egg...Don't even get me started on all the hack "scientists" out there today finding "new evidence" to support their funding's latest whim.)
Sorry... Rant over. I could go on much more and on many tangents on the lack of integrity or worse, outright and shameless corruption in the system we live in. But I will spare you.

No, it's about, "anything else you would like to chat about." "All other posts go here. Banana jokes, travel stories, anything else you would like to chat about."

This is common for many websites, e.g., see GardenWeb:

Hot Topics - GardenWeb

I don't recall anyone complaining that the forum wasn't about gardening, although I complained that some Hot Topic posters never posted in other GardenWeb forums, thereby showing an interest in gardening. By my logic, it would be wrong for someone with no interest in bananas to post here about non-bananas.
