If you put on sun glasses which filter out some of the red light, the whole world will have a slight blue tint.
The MSM are these sun glasses - thankfully, it is our own decision to put them on or take them off.

Everything has a tint depending on the light source. My apartment looks orange because we use low temperature soft light bulbs. It's important to know that there is no such thing as "no tint", you should get a good idea of what's going on by looking at things under a multitude of light sources and filtering appropriately.

Agreed. And that's my point: to get a good idea of what's going on and to shed a light on reality from different perspectives, the MSM are not enough because they largely take the same perspective/ lightsource/ whatevermetaphoryoulike.

If your only news intake is MSM, you're living on an unhealthy diet, so to speak. The MSM are still probably the best starting point, but they are not enough. And that's not how it should be!
The mainstream should not have such a clear bias towards one side in the partisan divide, the mainstream should not selectively omit newsworthy stories based on whether or not they fit the desired narrative, the mainstream should not fall so far short of delivering a healthy, balanced news diet. I dont really understand how anyone can defend the current state of things.

if a tree drops in the forest and no one hears it, did it really happen?
if a news event occurs and no media reports on it, did it even happen?

If your rare genius start to read -wiki- as example:

Btw NoWhere she broke the "law". Please LOL if she did at any time there would be some complaint/suit since a LONG TIME already.

This was already explained to you, but then again you are French.

18. (a) A Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner may not engage in a sexual relationship with any employee of the House who works under the supervision of the Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner, or who is an employee of a committee on which the Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner serves. This paragraph does not apply with respect to any relationship between two people who are married to each other.


The house rules say you may not have sex with your employees
She had sex with at least two of her employees
