Don't like W no More
I was a Reagan republican. During the George W Bush years I could not get enough of Rush Limbaugh’s reports. I still admire the guy, he website is awesome since he footnotes the information he discusses on his radio show. He sourced all the news he put on the air. I thought that was enough, it must be true if he said it and he has a source. I was a supporter of George W. So much so that my daughter bought me a W hat for my birthday. I felt for sure that the weapons of mass- destruction existed. That had to be true because most days Rush had another article he read that proved it was so. I was deceived. But I learned liberty lessons. There is verified news and there is agenda news. Journalist can research a story, and take the conclusion where the facts lead them. Or they can start with the conclusion and alter the facts fitting that agenda.
Because I and America were deceived intentionally or not, I learned I have to source my information. I no longer watch TV news. I used to watch Fox news all night. Sound bite news tells me nothing. I can’t stand TV when they have a two or three person “debate” and all u get is crosstalk shutdown insults. So, for 20 years I have been obsessed with news. I may have been consuming news in the beginning of my obsession to defend George W war and neo-conservatives. I was convinced there was weapons of mass destruction because Rush said it was so. Now, I have a library and schedule of liberty minded journalist podcast and journalist, topics economics, history, and constitutional law. And much much more.
During those year I have accumulated a library of articles and podcast . I don’t know for who I was saving them, now I have that someone, Liberty Lessons Learned. I am sharing my experiences with you now. Now, there is a problem with shotty agenda driven news, my expertise in invaluable.
