Default Comments for this thread are now closed.... Oh No, What happened CNN?

Quote:
A recent article published on CNN entitled Still ‘paranoid’ after all these years does a great job at equating all those who use critical thinking before guzzling down the toxic drink that is mass media with all kinds of crazy. The word “paranoid” is used about ten times in the article as well as the words “panic”, “wingnut”, “lunatic”, “dupes”, “derangement”, “irrational”, “extremism”, “idiot”, “fearful” and “insecurity”.

probably best not to figure it out and assume they are suppressing your voice while actively calling you out.

I'm doing just fine.

I was a little upset with America after the election, but I'm cool now.

OMG, comment section on a CNN article closed. Because there is nowhere else that kind of thing could be discussed. The world is coming to an end. Never before have i seen a website close comments when they are getting bashed.

It's clearly a media conspiracy. AboveTopSecret said so, and it's not like that site's populated by a massive amount of morons with no critical thinking skills.

Keep this ignorant shit on your tinfoil hat forums Dooms.
