I don't trust the WaPo more than sites like Breitbart, but you don't check your media sources, you think they're all bad and can't tell if one is better than the other. If you were checking all your media sources, I imagine you would have noticed a trend in quality by now.

Institutional and corporate sources make up more combined (not quite majority), but they only make up more when combined.

What inaccuracies have you seen in the WaPo? Have you compared them to other sources like Breitbart which have knowingly posted fake news stories (and aren't a fan of retractions)?

Comment Re:Best call blocker I've found (Score 1) 80

I use the app "Truecaller" which does a pretty good job identifying spammers. Unfortunately, a lot of robot callers are just taking the number they're calling and picking 4 random digits to spoof the source which makes them all fairly useless. Fortunately, I don't know anyone that would call from a number like that so I can assume they're all spam

However, I believe that the rule of law is more important, so the proper sequence of events is enforce the laws on the books as they stand now so that the executive branch gets to what its like to actually do their jobs

I saw a lot of people speeding on the highway - maybe we should spend $20b to solve that problem because the rule of law is important.

Comment Re:Everyone has a right to health care (Score 1) 350

Putting the government solely in charge of health care is probably the worst thing you can do. If you want to see health care get cheaper, allow for more profits which provides natural incentive for people to find better solutions so they can make more money. Get rid of government restrictions that establish protectionist markets for drug companies and prevent people from getting cheaper alternatives. If you want a single payer solution for basic healthcare, I'm fine with that, but healthcare is not something that government is obligated to dole out in infinite amounts to anyone who wants it.

Interesting theory - can you point to somewhere that has better health coverage than the US at a lower price that does this?
