Well, you are right about the "life-long" part. We've all heard of yellow journalism. We've experienced it first hand...and I'm not saying that every SINGLE thing the press reports is unbiased because it's not, but the truth is out there. There are still examples of media reporting TRUTH--and fact-checking. AND when the MSM presents video, audio, text, quotes, documents, et al.......they are reporting the truth. Even then IT IS MY JOB to dig for more. If it doesn't meet my smell test, I check it out. Anyone with a computer can do the same....so, in this day and age, there is absolutely NO EXCUSE for ignorance---unless it's willful ignorance and there's PLENTY of that these days.This happens when a life-long false propaganda meets the facts ... The fact that the US news are “fake news” does not mean, that Trump was elected by the Russians, it just means that the news is false. When it is beneficial to news owners.
Was Trump elected by the Russians? Maybe not, but we DO KNOW that Russians toyed with our election process. We DO KNOW that they intentionally hacked our systems, hung out at polling sites and they BOUGHT advertising that would benefit Trump's campaign. That is flagrant interference by a foreign government in America's presidential election and I expect they'll do the same thing in 2020. This is the issue and it SHOULD have enraged every single America but it didn't.
Add to that the fact that Trump and his supporters defamed, maligned and slandered our intelligence community for doing its job---protecting all Americans.
AND that, my friend, started this horrific journey into hell.
