    This is why one side believes one way, and the other side believes another way. Democratic socialists, just remember American exceptionalism and capitalism made your IPHONE happen!

    Unfortunately there are so many ther are oblivious to reality and Facebook is expatriating such false reasons. Facebook has and any other social media has to be held responsible for allowing such. All the social media has to be held accountable for allowing such misinformation

    Ya it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that media dividing people for profit needs to be stopped. Oprah and her Jewish controller’s made a fortune doing it but they didn’t use it against democracy in the pre trials when they tested her.

    AI is going to take over the world. While the corporations are using the tax Cattle herd, as soon as AI is perfected, the tax Cattle will be cut. While you left nutjobs and insane right leaning worship these politicians like Kings, they have you number on the plantation.

    Black people have no business on fb. Get off that machine ran by racists who allow people to post anything about Black people, but will take your page if you are Black and use the platform to bring awareness to about the racist history of America or if you call out bad cops.

    Social Media has become "Gossip on Steroids.'" If Gossip was bad when it was hurts one person at a time, why are we surprised about Social Media's effect now? 🤔 …But as with everything it is all about Individual Choice and Responsibility (how we as individuals choose to use the tools that are given to us). May we make better choices to have better results 🙏🙏🙏

    I despise vaccinated people who are smug in their protection, who urge unvaccinated people to exercise their freedoms.

    It's like the guy in the street telling the guy on the ledge to jump. G.Rivera (All Fox TV reporters are fully vaccinated).

    Social media lack moderation. The recent volcano eruption in La Palma is streamed with live chats that often provide a lot of information, but as soon as the moderators go to sleep, the chat is taken over by conspiracy believers and idiots spouting their dangerous nonsense. Social media are like nursery schools without supervision.

  • Anna on December 16, 2021

    Nixon was pushed out of office quickly because most people could tell right from wrong and stood up for acceptable morals/values and the truth. Now however the coin has flipped, and those with the lowest morals/values and wrong about most things that they speak out on, makes them the ideal politician, and they are believed past common sense, and so adored.
    The way I see it is, we can't have a 3 sided coin with half here and half there, but we can flip the coin back to the other side, to where the acceptable morals/values is the factor that runs our country, because when it comes to which politicians should be managing our America and the American people, we must have quality leadership and honest dedication to protect and serve.-the entirety of America.

  • Treebeard Ent on December 16, 2021

    This is SOoo important Ari. I hope you will keep up this public service of educating your audience with more reporting on this, IE the untold damage to our young people. Not only in America but around the world.

    The greatest weapon of the 21st Century,,, develop a mind manipulating,embedded hypnotic / subliminal content, A.I. psychological profile gathering and targeting code.
       The internet / social media offered the ability to individually target millions of people with hours of imprint sessions using the 2016 election as a springboard into their subconscious minds …"What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening", blind to facts and reason,unconditional loyalty.TRUTH is not what he has said or did but what he says today,and what he says today what he did, using his exaggerating hand gestures as a hypnotic tool.
      20 years ago would you ever thought a billion people on this planet would have a wireless connected touchscreen supercomputer the size of a Pop-Tart stuck to their face, walking into traffic, crashing cars into each other, such great technological advances we have achieved.
       "When you can make people believe absurdities, you can get them to commit atrocities".- Voltaire
      Putin, the Mercers and Steve Bannon had the evil forethought 15 years ago to utilize and disperse this weapon to authoritarian right wing parties throughout the world. Yeah I know,,,mass internet brainwashing technology,,, that's so SI-FI,,,, kind of like landing a booster rocket falling from space, upright on a drone ship in the ocean or a pad where it blasted off.
      At least it's not 100% effective but added to propaganda induced tribalism, political extortion and bribery, effective enough to achieve the unthinkable, end Democracy. Did I hear Putin utter," Checkmate!"

    "There's a sucker born every minute" is a phrase closely associated with P. T. Barnum, an American showman of the mid-19th century.

    One of the things that a civilized society does is protect its citizens from con-artists.

    Swindling is a felony.

    So Facebook is – in fact – swindling [obtain (money) fraudulently from] people when it makes money off of spreading lies and misinformation. The consumer believes that they are being sent the truth when – in fact – Facebook is intentionally directing them to lies and misinformation because it increase their revenue; this is swindling their customers.
    Swindling is a felony in addition to being illegal at the state level.

    Thanks to social media, many people today cannot take hearing someone who thinks differently from them. I remember I read somewhere, "People don't want to hear your opinion; they want to hear their opinion coming out of your mouth". If they don't, all they can do is call you names and assume you are pure evil. Sad.
