    They had attended a pro-life march nearby and were there to see the Lincoln Memorial and catch buses out.

    It just so happened that the crazy BHI's were there spouting hate toward everyone, including the nearby Indigenous Peoples march participants who were getting ready to leave apparently.

    They were there spouting some hate themselves despite the PR firm pushback against the original story.

    To my original post, my coworker said he “heard it on the radio”. That’s full-throttle propaganda, because unlike the internet, not everyone has access to the airwaves.
    Knowing him, it was either Rash, Horse Face or Ingrate (maybe Tomi Lowrent, not sure if she’s on radio. Not sure if Trigger is either).

    Gotta be honest: When the first story that came out proved to be very dishonest I lost interest in what a group of middle/high schoolers attending a public protest were doing. I agree things could/should have been done differently, but I really have no zeal to denigrate them after the mischaracterizations even if they are rich white male catholic schoolboys with the seemingly prerequisite attitudes to go with all that.

    Re: Fake news (SIAP)

    When people continue to post in social media that Roy Scheider just passed away...and it's been coming up on 11 years now since his death.....you know there's a major disconnect!

    We live in a different world now, obviously.

    I can't really offer any solution except to try and take it easy on your fellow man and try to take into account the continued pursuit of ratings by the media and how that can act to polarize society.

    Personally - I'm not going to let them do that.

    I tend to watch BBC for my news as much as possible anyway - they don't seem to have as much of an agenda as the others.

    Good luck.....YMMV...

    I like BBC news - as cut and dry as they come.

    I wish your other sources were as good as the BBC because a lot of the stuff you've pulled out over the last few years definitely didn't come from them.

    Our local NPR station carries them in its third band. I'm about to shut down now, pull out a book and turn "The World"...

    Kentucky Teen Nick Sandmann Sues The Washington Post For $250 Million

    The Covington Catholic High student’s suit says the Post “caused permanent damage to his life and reputation” with its report on a Lincoln Memorial incident.
    According to the lawsuit filed by attorneys Lin Wood and Todd McMurtry, the Post’s coverage of the incident “wrongfully targeted and bullied” Sandmann “because he was the white, Catholic student wearing a red ‘Make America Great Again’ souvenir cap.”

    https://www.huffpost.com/entry/nick-sandmann-covington-washington-post-lawsuit_n_5c6cb519e4b0f40774c9e32d

    I hope that smirking little smart aleck gets nada.
