    Even with all the laughing, she makes an absolutely critical point that has made America so much, started wars, and is killing hundreds of thousands even now: They’ve successfully done something that didn’t really exist in America on a large scale before 1990: set it up where there is a set of America that is operating on a whole different set of ‘facts’ that aren’t- that are ALL WRONG; but then their key is...... “There is something RW media do others won’t do: You can trust NO ONE BUT ME. THere are NO FACTS OTHER THAN WHAT I’M GIVING TO YOU. The willingness to hive-off everything else, we, liberals, centrists, will NEVER do; we believe in the fact based world, in journalism. That’s how they’ve locked up their own market- but they don’t speak beyond that, either.” ((EXACTLY how evangelical and other religions work; EXACTLY. But she, as all others, literally afraid to say that.)).

    The projection Rachel gives at 5:26 is unreal. It's like all the stereotypes of left-wing media come true. Pure projections. Unreal. And her example of it isn't even an example of what she's claiming, Trump saying FOX News bad, has nothing to do with her claim of "Don't look at other sources." In fact she says she and liberals would never do such a thing. Yet that's literally what they've been doing since the Bush Era, watch me or other -liberal-mainstream sources, do not watch FOX, RT, or anything else you can't trust it. Sadly her and T. Noah's audience are so incredibly stupid and brainwashed, they put their faith in her like the average Q-Tard or mindless MIGA Trump loyalist. Unreal that this has over 40 times the upvotes! But then again, the typical audience for this kind of tripe need to feed their confirmation bias about the "others". You hate FOX News, as you should, but then you fall for MSNBC, CNN, Comedy Central, Hollywood actors, comedians, politicians, social media echo chambers, the same thing you call out FOX News and it's viewers of being, is what you ACTIVELY do. Project, project, project! The current state of American media and the mindless NPC consumer is beyond saving at this point. The 4th Turning can't end soon enough. We either recover some semblance of sanity and tune out of the corporate media and state controlled news networks (and malignant political comedy shows), or we collapse.

    Know what, if liberals are ever going to reach conservatives at all, especially without a filter, that media "wife-swap" idea's not so ridiculous. If conservatives are only viewing things like Fox News, then engaging them in a medium they will watch isn't actually such a bad idea. Rachel's idea of a latex face is awfully fun, since from whom the news is coming seems to matter more than the news itself, but that would be extremely disingenuous. As oneself, though, in a sort of media exchange between corporations, where pundits can present their appeals to audiences other than their own every now and then, actually has a lot of merit, imo. Maybe someone should actually look into that.

    The way you convince the left to watch fox news is the same way you convince the right to watch CNN you bring in reporters who are willing to call out both sides equally when they screw up. Sadly neither stations can be called real news anymore because they are so biased when it comes to politics that they cannot be trusted. You can still watch them and they deliver good weather information or local events like traffic reports but that's it. You want to bring the left and right together start roasting Mitch and Pelosi equally! Be accurate like the news used to be many years back and people from every party will flock to those channels... until then people will continue to diss fake news biased media and they should!

    The right wing media is following the playbook that has been used since the beginning of civilization. It's the Snidely Whiplash vs Dudley Doright, Hulk vs the Iron Sheik, Batman vs the Joker . The right wing media and a large portion of republicans do whatever it takes.........to win. Ethics, truth, reality be damned. The left, for the most part, try to take the Michelle route, trying to stay high, while the opponent is going low. Maddox is the best at what she does and she has been a beaming light of sanity over the past 4 years and deserves all the accolades she has received.

On an unrelated note, I've been binging this channel (from March on, so since the Social Distancing show started) and It seems odd to me that pretty much every guest laughs when Trevor welcomes them to the show. The "social distancing" part of the title has just become a normal part of my life now, so I end up puzzled when they laugh.😆

    I've seen the same thing with conservatives as I've seen with evangelical churches. Evangelicals are always changing their churches because they aren't evangelical enough. Sometimes they even start their own "true" evangelical church. Conservatives do the same thing, if they think Rush Limbaugh has gotten soft they go to a more radical station. When that station no longer matches their convoluted world view, they switch again. The result is that the radical conservatives just keep getting more and more radical, and in some cases they become more willing to seek violent means to change the world around them. This resistance to recognizing that the world is always changing is what makes conservatives conservatives and so damn resistant to facts.
