TV news, at least in Ame= rica, is a whore for people and forces who want to enslave me/kill me to m= ake themselves richer. So you can imagine where I turn for my news. My fe= ar now? All the mouth-breathers, and the people who think that the mouth-b= reathers are the only ones worth programming for, will bend the internet t= o themselves. How?
