Russia, Disinformation, and Bothsideism

Putin isn’t winning over the Russian people regarding the war in Ukraine with amazingly convincing propaganda. He’s flooding them with misinformation and disinformation, so they completely give up on knowing what the truth is and focus instead on their personal lives.

I bring this up because I see so many people in my comments sections doing the same, because something similar is happening in this country. The difference is that we still have good journalists reporting the truth. They’re just being drowned out with misinformation and disinformation, and by thousands of people pretending they’re journalists.

What I’m saying is don’t throw up your hands and take the easy way out with bothsideism, because that trend puts us at serious risk. That being said, these paywalls have got to go because they’re blocking people out of good information. Do you expect us to have a subscription for everything?

I mean I know you’re hurting for money, but there are other ways to do it. Maybe talk to some influencers. I’d also like to see us beef up NPR starting with a solid Cable News Channel.

But it’s obviously going to take more than Tony’s two ideas to get us out of this, so what do you think.
