In building this page I have attempted to do my very best to sort through so much.
Full disclosure, I am a liberal/progressive for the most part so this page has a slight slant in that regard.
But I do my best to be “Fair and Balanced”. This endeavor has been amazingly agonizing.

Following quote taken after 2016 presidential election from
this article here by Bill Moyers
"Among the many now-widening divides in the country, this is a big one, the divide between the media and working-class whites, because it creates a Wild West of information - a media ecology in which nothing can be believed except what you already believe.
With the mainstream media so delegitimized - a delegitimization for which they bear a good deal of blame, not having had the courage to take on lies and expose false equivalencies - they have very little role to play going forward in our politics."
