A post on TomCat's blog. I don't do investigative journalism. But I'm proud to share the work of those who do, especially when they do it so well.

I only get on the liberal links you’ve mentioned here in your post. I don’t need the lies. Between R & D…there is great disparity, as with media too. imho.
How to tell? “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.”

Excellent post, Joanne, Thanks!

Seems to me that the Furies have a lot to attend to.

Great information.
You point out so much negative/fake news we are fed each and every day, It's truly a shame that our world is so full of it. I too only watch or read specific news. Appreciate your complete listings..

Although I’m neither American nor do I belong to the majority of Americans who have more trust in local news sources than in national ones, and therefore the report wasn’t meant for me, I was very intrigued and read on. 😁😘 I’m so glad I did, because it gave me a lot of information that is useful for non-American New York Times readers too.

I’m not sure if the Dutch or the Aussies trust their local news more than national news. They both express a lot of trust in their national TV news agencies (NOS and ABC) which attract a lot of viewers, but also rely a lot on the internet and local newspapers for their local news, especially outside the main cities. So people might be equally vulnerable to such propaganda outlets as these American Star sites. With federal elections coming up in May, your article gave me a lot of tips on what to look out for.

Thanks, Joanne.
