  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.

  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Now non-white people can be white

    Don't feel bad...

    I've had people literally link some grad school kid's term paper as if it was evidence. It's not personal. They simply don't know their own biases.

    Or they're just buying time, 'cause they think it's on their side, "running out the clock" :)

    Fail. That looks like major projection on your part.

    Some Fox is good, some is terrible (Hannity & Carlson being among the latter.) Fox News is generally fine as are independent journalists, depending on the individual (no to James O'Keefe, yes to Louis Theroux). Why "even" Glenn Greenwald? I haven't noticed any compelling reporting from him, but I haven't really followed him either. I'm not going to contribute to that site's traffic ratings.

    OANN and what I've seen of NewsMax have been unreliable or outright propaganda, so I certainly would not use them as my source except as examples of bad journalism.

    MediaBiasFactCheck says:
    Overall, we rate One America News Questionable based on far-right bias, lack of sourcing, promotion of conspiracy theories, and propaganda, as well as numerous failed fact checks. OAN is not a credible news source.

    Why you would choose them is understandable, but I prefer credible sources.

    A grad school kid's term paper? Like a doctoral thesis? Why not if it is well researched and properly foot-noted? Do you really think his sources of Rumble, OANN and NewsMax are better? ^_^

    Yeah.

    What's a dr of sociology?

    And this is exactly the problem....it isn't.

    It's not that the experts of his field don't understand this... but they're largely teachers....and he's paying obscene amounts of money to write a load of garbage. That money pays their salaries.

    I don't blame people for not being able to understand it or spot it....but if you want an explanation I'd gladly give you one.

    I'm not seeing CNN, NYT, HUFFPO, WAPO MSNBC and many other sources commonly cited on here on their least biased list.

    Do you ever call out posters for those sources?
