Hysterical Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for April 5th - War on Kids
Bottom Line: These are the daily doses of nonsense in the media and my hot takes on them...
Clear backpacks another target in the widening War on Kids - Sun Sentinel
Hot take: This is a story about how mean people answering a question on Facebook can be. I'm not kidding. What's more is that there's evidently a "War on Kids" and nasty people on Facebook are part of the widening on that war. You can't make this crap up. I don't know what's better...that kids who've been through tragedy are now part of a permanent victim class that should be able to slander organizations like the NRA, people like Marco Rubio and change policy without contestation or that there's been a declaration of war on them with mean Facebook people answering Sun-Sentinel Facebook poll questions widening it.
Why Trump Is More Popular Than Ever Matthew Walther, The Week
Excerpt: It's not surprising that after little more than a year in office many people who voted for a president still support him. But it's also surprising that a president who has been the object of more negative reporting than any in our history still enjoys something like the same middling base of support he had before taking office. Unless it's the negative reporting that is the problem, which I suspect is very largely the case.
Hot take: This is mostly a hit piece, but it stumbles on truths along the way with that excerpt being especially instructive. And not necessarily for the reasons cited. It's not as though the average person naturally hates the MSM so much that they'll approve of Trump to spite them. It's because the average American is doing the best they ever have right now with the best overall economy we've had in 13 to 32 years. People's lives are better due to policy from the very President the MSM has been slandering with policy they lied about in advance. During that process they render themselves as lacking credibility with those who aren't close minded partisans.
