  • Hard News: The fake news problem, in reply to Farmer Green,

    Based on what Snopes offers , the true ratio of counties wins looks to be Trump : Clinton= 80:20

    So what do counties wins indicate?
    I suppose it could be (intentionally?) misleading as it takes no account of the fact that counties have widely differing population counts. Perhaps it could become the start of a 'fake news' story.
    Other than that, I doubt that it tells anyone anything useful.

  • Hard News: The fake news problem, in reply to Tom Semmens,

    seized on a ’factual error” that allowed you to dismiss his entire point

    Aren't these 'factual errors' as you call them, the basis of fake news?
    Aren't we discussing fake news in this thread?

    What is the truth, again?

    Perhaps you could inform us of the truth, or point, in the Archdruid report. Preferably something that can be verified, for there is a lot of unverifiable 'fact' being bandied around at present - but then that is the basis of fake news ...

    In section on 'The Obamacare Disaster'

    triple-digit annual increase in premiums

    Generally means greater than 100%. This sounds like over-egging and I call bollocks. I also note that (very carefully?) there are close to zero verifiable statements.

    I wouldn’t begrudge the next generation from receiving assistance that I didn’t.

    I fear there will be many who won't be so generous. After all I think the last 30+ years has taught a lot of people that it is OK to think only of themselves.
