But these other outlets are okay? Why do they get a pass?
(and be real, you know why)
easy to see how people get caught up in a single-minded narrative as directed by power structures through media outlets and then let "common sense" operate within the constraints of that particular representation of reality

And don't give me a cop out like "I want everyone believing the truth" because what you're really talking about is one single version of the truth
