    Bad journalism is bad for democracy.

    And you people went to college?
    It’s pretty cold and dark here in winter, some of us even do grad school!

      Not that we needed any more proof that Tucker Carlson is a complete grifter but here's more

        Still not sure what makes tech companies the big threat to journalism - when fake news is a 10x bigger problem.
        I'm not talking about this specific story, or the allegation that tech companies are buying up media. It may be true, but at the moment, my head is in the sand.

        What I am talking about is the lack of real competition for virtually all tech companies, especially the biggest ones. Google, Microsoft, FB, etc- they may have "competitors", but it's not even close to a competitive market that each operates in. And that is a real threat to capitalism if we let it keep going on. Some of these can be broken up like Ma Bell was.

        And, yes, I agree that *right now* the immediate threat to news is the attacks on journalism. It's terrible. It's also far, far, far from new. That statement is also true at the founding of the country- which led to a lot of good regulations that kept both the media and the attackers in check. That ended in de-regulation era, and here is where we are, again.

          Hahahaaaaaa

          “President Trump reportedly claimed to visitors that former President Barack Obama sat in the Oval Office's private dining room and “watched basketball all day” and left a hole in the wall — claims that an Obama official said were false.”

            Its very harmful when democrats paint independents or allies unjustifiably as enemies in order to get pub. Those kinds of actions generate more "both sides" apathy than anything.
            Facebook is tech
            Google is tech

            Any information business is tech.

              Curious why you say that (guessing some of the more advanced features)? The only issue I have with Outlook is the webmail version. It keeps autoscrolling for some reason. Other than that, it works perfectly fine for what I need it for.

                  Remember how popular AIM and MySpace were? I think Facebook itself is dying, but fortunately for them they own Instagram. I’d be on board with not letting social media companies own more than one platform, but outside of that not sure what else you can do.

                    Is that before or after you throw Mrs. Clinton in jail?

                      Outlook has the unfortunate bug that when it fails, your entire OS can start to fail where you need a system restart - often a hard boot, and then follow a series of steps to change some default settings within the system so that it no longer crashes (not literally) your computer.

                        I can give it to you from Long Island perspective. It's different from Upstate NY, NJ, New England, etc...

                        From L.I., the tiering for a straight-A student is:

                        1. Try HYP. (Exception: grades unimportant if you are a rich enough legacy).

                        2. If you don't get into 1 then you try Cornell, Columbia (if you're Jewish), Penn (black), Dartmouth (rich), or Brown (hippie and/or negligent parents).

                        3. If you don't get into 2 then you try NYU, Syracuse, BU, St. Johns (Catholic), Fordham (Jewish), the SUNY system (except Stony Brook unless you're a stoner).

                        4. If you don't get into 3, welp, take a deep breath... Exhale... Good. Then try Hofstra, the SCNY system (state colleges as opposed to state universities... life is getting pretty earnest), a buncha places in NJ. God, maybe Lehigh. Bucknell or Colgate if you have the money.

                        5. Still no? Welcome to Greendale.

                        For STEM:

                        1. MIT.

                        2. Princeton or Cornell.

                        3. There's always barber college.
