You know, David Horowitz's conservative (the amorphous American version of it) trash rag.
Man, I sure am glad I don't read conventional news.
I had truly forgotten just how abhorrent, lowly and laughably sensationalist the "alternative media" is. FPM are SJWs of the right. Every article is calculated to enrage, scare or demonize. They ran a 4th of July article - practically an "America fuck yeah" hagiography about how freedom-loving, rebellious, individualistic and exceptional Americans are while maintaining limited government as being a central American value.
Meanwhile they also run articles calling for Black Lives Matter to be designated as a terrorist organization, encouraging people to vote for Trump because he's ostensibly the only one focusing on "national security" (expanding the size and scope of central government) and even had one about George Will's leaving the GOP over the issue of immigration restriction. The columnist covering Will flat out said that holding consistent principles is akin to being a "Marxist who cares more about theory than reality" (http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/263323/ … greenfield).
If this is the shit that people read daily to be "informed citizens," then ignorance is bliss.
