It's becoming weird to watch individuals with a talent for reading prepared texts. :dohdohdoh:

Reminded me of mathematician Eric Weinstein's "Four Quadrant Model"

https://everipedia.org/wiki/lang_en/four-quadrant-model-eric-weinstein/

"The Four Quadrant Model is a tool used to examine how the media upholds the status quo by stigmatizing people who hold views that challenge it and portray them as prejudiced or intolerant. […] Once the pattern is seen, however, it cannot be unseen, […] realizing that you have been repeatedly controlled by a single trick tying your virtue to a thwarting of your own interests"

Yeah, that describes it. The last time I checked, wasn't Anderson Cooper supposed to be one of those 1-2 guys that each network has that exemplifies integrity in journalism?

Broken link above, I meant the one where Trump pardons black beard. (April 1st)

We've all known that Joe Biden is a touchy-feely guy. I've seen the videos for years. It could be far worse, but if it was my daughter I'd have an entirely different opinion on it. The real question is why now? The media just turned Biden from everyone's favorite uncle to a pervert in a day.
