I just can’t with Republicans. Even if they’re writing an article with salient points, they throw in a phrase that makes no sense. And that’s when I stop reading and refuse to share it. I read an Atlantic piece by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.,) who was decrying the growth of fake news and disinformation. It was all good until he claimed MSNBC and CNN were the mirror version of FOX News.
