Nope. Looks like you are serious.  Have fun with that stuff.  Keep an eye out for the lizard people.  

LOL, out of sMerit, otherwise I'd give you all of 'em.

Snopes may not always be correct but I'd trust them far more than infowars. Also, the person who was objecting to the snopes link can always go there and verify *their* sources. The infowars type of places never seem to have verifiable sources, for obvious reasons.

I find this graphic to be useful as a gut check when reading online...

I think the Y-axis is equally, or maybe more, important to look at too. I think it's hard to remove all bias completely as journalists are human too but it should be a lot easier to find sources that at least don't make shit up.

I think NBC, ABC and CBS are a bit more left leaning than the chart proposes (by at least half a quadrant), but other than that I largely agree with it. I made one small addition, see if you can spot it.

Temptation Island (a dumb reality show my GF follows) Cheesy
Definitely seeing more signs of exposure. Yesterday I heard a large bitcoin spot on a major AM station(yep, still love AM radio) from the metro area. It was some sort of buy now! its better than penny stocks broker kinda ad....still....its happening.

That's the thing Jiggy, when someone makes a bullish post - there are no disputes or confrontations - ever.
On the other hand if a member (non-legendary usually) makes a bearish remark, he can find himself been accused of lying, manipulating or trying to influence newbies, & even as far as trying to discredit other members that might have the same opinion. That's what serveria did, and that's why I felt that I had to explain myself. Also that's why he is a liar in my book.

In any other case, of course there is no need to explain anything regarding an opinion/position.

He he, you found the WO-formula ...  Cool

Bitcoin maximalism is rampant. Twitter is also full of virtue signalling idiots.

Luckily, Honey Badger does not care for NPCs.

Good morning all.


Looks like an nice shift in momentum has occurred with bitcoin currently trading around $10.7k  I think some consolidation is in order.

I want to be clear here.

I used to listen to a good bit of Alex Jones, way back in the day when the only way I could get it was on the shortwave in between the Armageddon preachers.  I have been something of a student of conspiracy since my early adulthood.  Paying close attention during Iran/Contra and the secret wars in Central America will do that to you.

Also, I have always liked to mix up my information inputs.  In a media environment where nearly all content is propaganda of one stripe or another, digesting a diversity of inputs is a good way to train one's mind to recognize bias.

I will also say, Jones' account of his infiltration of the Bohemian Grove event in 2000 remains very entertaining radio indeed.

All that said, there came a time, right around the turn of the century, when he reported on historic events with which I was personally intimately involved, and I listened to him get it, completely, wrong.

I won't elaborate with specifics, but he characterized an occasion of social unrest as a government organized psyops effort that I knew was in fact a very organic grassroots upwelling.  It has been impossible for me to take much of anything he says seriously since.

The site will go through their whole methodology on how they generate their data if you want to go down that rabbit hole, also the plot is from 2018, maybe needs an update as society does seem to be getting even more partisan. Zero Hedge, never heard of them, good to know to avoid. I prefer to stay in the green/yellow zone if I'm actually choosing.

Ahh...the Grove..a topic all by itself.

Who was that LA asshole who did the flash friday thing?  That was about as far into the rabid right as I delved...   Young and impressionable is my only excuse.

I've always liked the saying.. 'Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you'.

Problems with conspiracies start when you know what they are talking about. I love conspiracy theories too, but during time I understood they are usually a big junk of shit, mixed with some perls of truth. Power corrupts humans, that's the recurring motive under many conspiracy theory, and that's one pearl of truth.

I mean, just see what happened to this community when money got involved: most people turned from crypto-anarchists to scammers or spammers in no time. Whales already formed elitary clubs. Mining industry got increasingly competitive, and there are misconduct everywhere (professional, human, etc). You don't need conspiracies to understand why the world is like that.

This is from during the Kavanaugh hearings...
Quote
Overall, AllSides found that most of the coverage of Kavanaugh's hearing was Lean Left. However, the rest of AP's coverage remains Center. While there is some Left-Leaning content on AP's site, it is not enough for us to switch its rating from Center to Lean Left. We will continue to monitor AP's media bias closely — particularly, when there is not one story dominating the news — and will continue to conduct research.

Nice graph. Saved it.
Looking at CNN and FOX NEWS and it seems to be spot on 👍🏻

Here’s the thing.  

I am an avowed leftie and I have never heard of any of the organizations on the hard left of the spectrum, other than Daily KOS.  And I can’t remember having recently read anything on Daily KOS.    

But the hard right organizations like Fox News are everywhere.  I regularly read Fox News articles just to see the Republican spin. A classic technique at Fox News is not to report the news, but to report someone’s reaction to news.  For example, Republican X does something bad.  So Fox News reports that Democrat is politicizing issue Y by criticising Republican X.  Fox News would never directly say Republican X did something wrong but they will go into deep detailed reporting on why Republican Z is right to criticize the Democrat for politicizing issue Y.   Watching Fox News is like watching a series of Youtube reacts videos.

This chart portrays left and right as balanced, but completely neglects to consider that the hard right channels are massively funded by billionaires such as Murdoch and Koch, and have massive reach into middle America.  Old people get all their news from Fox News and so middle America’s values are shaped by the outcomes that billionaires want to create.  

By comparison, wtf is Guacamoley.  Sounds like a Mexican recipe site.

Here's the thing...  If BTC dominance is that low then there will be a handful of BIG alts. Just the ones with real use cases and promise.  There is NO WAY the ICO p&ds are going to go back up.  That ship has sailed.

So to be honest I would not be surprised to see a few alts go up with BTC.  But not so much that BTC dominance goes way under 50%
