I’m not sure why this is sequestered on the “Wild West” forum. It seems rationale and worthy of top billing in the spin room.

Thanks for posting it.

RE: This lady asked people what their "woke breaking point" was.
My "woke breaking point" was whenever I realized just how subtly and cleverly our news coverage had become slanted to favor the left.

It was somewhere between Walter Cronkite's coverage of Vietnam, where you knew he was anti-war but at least he tried to cover the news straight up, and Dan Rather's announcement that the Supreme Court had put an end to the Florida electoral shenanigans in 1980, when he looked like he had just lost his mother.

This is exactly right - - the realization that American media does not play it straight but instead is offering up an ideological narrative.

Compared to most on this forum, I was late to that realization. I think that my breaking point was Dan Rather's "memo-gate". That was beyond blatant, and yet the rest of the press virtually all circled the ideological wagons around him.
