Well duh.

Look around the Drudge at the older Conservatives barking easily disproven "alternative facts."

I read a post on a blog that says the research was stored 100 ft. underground in a titanium vault, and was guarded by a giant badger.

It's ridiculous to assume that fake news only influences one side of the political divide.

We know it doesnt. Russia posed as trump supporters, but also as bernie and hillary supporters to make those two campaigns fight each other. And it worked.

There are liberal suckers on this site who still whine about how mean "bernie bros" were to hillary supporters, without realizing they were probably duped by russian operatives just like trump supporters were.

Um, okay, but it's just as ridiculous to not acknowledge the GRU has definitely taken sides.

Russia's side is "whatever hurts america the most". In 2016, that was clearly trump. And we know from their infiltration of the NRA that they think the GOP is the most harmful for america and helpful for america's enemies.

Is the ReTort a media bubble?

Only the intellectually lazy ones whose self absorbed lives are governed by ghost stories about future events they will never live long enough to see even in they were true... and that is a fact. Basket of deplorable pissants huffing and puffing their bloated senses of self worth all afraid to die and meet the loving god whose job it is to send them to hell.

#11 I was wondering if the DR could be considered "social media"?
I don't do Twitter or Facebook, or anything like that.
