    CNN’s 3rd headline down begins with this sentence about Pam Geller’s organization:

    “Its name paints an image of a group dedicated to protecting American ideals. But critics call it the opposite — an intolerant hate group opposed to freedom of religion.”

    God damn the American “news” media.

    Yeah. Anyone who thinks they’re well-informed because they watch CNN needs to rent out their head as a canoe.

    RIP King Aurthur and Yeoman RandThe Black Widow piece was some more tea leaf reading geeks who apparently think they know everything. When Winter Soldier came out these guys were obsessing about a arrow necklace that could barely be seen. To them proof Romanoff was in wuv with Hawkeye.There are a lot of Avengers without solo gigs. And there are a lot of female characters in Marvel I still want to see, even if they aren’t in a solo movie. I think Cat Woman and Elektra are good examples of how careful the franchises have to be with the female properties.

    The attempts at manipulation do get obvious sometimes, at least to those who have eyes to see it. Some folks think they can solve problems via social engineering and propagating lies, but this is an old idea unfortunately:

    Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge with the lies of the day. I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens, who, reading newspapers, live and die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in the world.

    The man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them; inasmuch as he who knows nothing is nearer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors
