This is my fav TWIT show, Its just the chemistry and the personalities.
Take away…(u can tell me if im right or wrong)
The professor of graduate studies at the CRAIG NEWMARK college of journalism at the City University of New York, believes that the FB is “People’s forum for voice against rulers oppression”
The Chief TWIT believes FB has become the tool of the crooks and con men to increase their power and subvert democracy.
May I have the envelope please…
And the Winner is…
The Chief TWIT. (applause)
While FB does give a voice to the voiceless, it also gives, at least these days, way too much power to liars, conspiracy nuts, death cults, and con men. This is far more dangerous to the health of our society. Im in favor of the small person having a voice, too, but right now…we have come way to close to the end of democracy, and potential civil war in this country.
To anyone who thinks that couldnt happen here, you over estimate the average person, and the affinity for mental stimulation thru screaming, yelling, throwing things, shooting, breaking things, burning things, fighting, etc. Its far more exciting to people than thinking, working things out, voting, etc.
The City University of NY, and academia in general, lives in this world of logical positivism.
Out side of that, there’s a lot of ppl who just want to blow things up. Giving them all an unmonitored forum to broadcast whatever they want to the world, can have dire cnsequences, as we have just seen in american politics. IMHO.
Jeff…go out to central Pennsylvania some time, and be shocked.

ps…Stacy, you ARE the voice of reason. The show would pale and wither without you.
