Watched this one-side, sorry ass excuse for a "documentary" on HBO today: After Truth: Disinformation and the Cost of Fake News Want to see a one-sided propaganda piece, this is it. Not saying that there isn't any truth it in. There definitely is, however, the entire gyst of this piece is to say that in the United States, the left side of the political fence is nothing but a bunch of victims and it's all because of the "fake news" that is being propagated by the right. Even one part of this shows the fake smear campaign that was created by some dipship in Alabama back in 2017 for the senate race, and it's blown off as "well, they do it, so are we". My thoughts are not slanted one way or the other regarding my own personal political views, but rather my disgust is that they make it seem like ONLY one side of the shit-ass media machine puts out bullshit "news" stories and runs with them when it is very clearly done on both sides of the political fence. I don't mean to go off on a rant, but I kind of have to. I don't care what side of the political fence anyone is on, as long as we can have civil discussions about our differences. I don't care how bad the news can be, as long as it is truthful. I'm a big boy, I can handle it. BUT, what pisses me off about far too many of these self-important assholes who pretend to be journalists do nothing but sell sensationalized opinion pieces based on conjecture, half-truths and the need and desire to be the first to report something, regardless if they have any clue wtf they are doing. Media on both sides of the political fence do it, if you don't believe that, you are blinded by your own personal beliefs and are wearing blinders. I already have an incredible distrust of the media and even more so a disgust for social media. This turd of a documentary didn't change that at all.
