    This literally happens every single day in the news. You're making a mountain out of a molehill through this entire post, man. In a news environment you'll have 25 stories that are on your desk and then you'll only have 8 you can cover and 4 you can mention in passing. What he's saying, is that if that news involves hate groups pushing an agenda that you don't cover that event in favor of something else.

    I'm in agreement that a private entity has no legal, moral, or ethical obligation to 'get the facts out there' on groups that think minorities should be subservient to white people, or groups who want to commit eco terrorism. Those kind of topics require investigative journalists and time slots that don't traditionally fit into the 1 hour news block.

    That's not censorship that's your production team picking stories the public should know about. The people doing that are all college educated or have worked in newsrooms for a long time to be able to make those calls.

    If someones platform is believing other people are inferior to others and they shouldn't be part of the country then they absolutely shouldn't be given the bullhorn of the media.

    You're walking along the line of 'intolerance of hateful people is being intolerant towards them.' Hateful people deserve no tolerance. They should be chastised and they should be shunned by society not given an 'equal seat at the table' of ideas.

    I agree.

    They also infiltrate the moderation teams of subreddits. I've had 3 accounts banned from /r/politics permanently for extremely light reasons, and the moderator (anonymous every time as they refuse to show their username) team refuses to act against this/these individual(s). They are closing off reputable members of the communities they infiltrate and then censor any form of aggressive resistance against them.

    It's truly psychological warfare, in my mind.

    Agreed. I (anecdotally) see tons of people on my Facebook feed talking about various congressmen, heads of committees, and deputies to various governmental agencies.

    I'm not hopeful yet but certainly I'm optimistic.

    I agree with you. I personally don't consider a blow job 'sexual relations' I consider it a blowjob. It's completely different to actual sex.

    I am beyond fatigued seeing the sheer unwillingness of congressional republicans to uphold ethics laws and criminal laws.

    It's beyond embarrassing as a country to have the president deem Canada a national security threat but completely capitulate to Russia.

    Clinton was lying under oath.

    The issue here is the staunch refusal of the republican congress to hold a republican accountable for their actions.

    We're seeing a blatant disregard for the law. I'm a believer that the FBI will make their case known to the public, and then let the public hold congress accountable for their inaction.

    Car racing. I love watching stuff like Indycar and Formula 1, but there's no way I'd ever be able to afford it. :(

    The only cons I could think of would be people not sourcing their answers or putting forward policies that are known to not work as solutions.

    Other than that, the entire point of a thread would be to debate a policy rather than how potential policies are being covered in the media.

    If we had Old Republic stories I'd literally shit. TOR was one of my favorite games I've ever played, so if that came to be I don't even know what would happen.

    Completely agreed. I can see the similarities to how Marvel sets up their universe, and I really like how they've done it in this film. We can't be certain, but I definitely hope Disney follows the Marvel Model with regards to Star Wars. I'd love there to be 2-4 Star Wars films a year. It's absolutely one of my favorite cinematic universes and it has the audience for it.
