Trying not to screw things up worse

Quite easily, due to both the lack of original context around the video and/or whatever new context is placed around the video. You think the news comes together by chance? No, it's carefully constructed. This is still true even if it's the news you personally agree with.No, if you watch FAKE NEWS like the Communist News Network or MSDNC or most of Fox News, your head is obstructed. If you watch news where they provide PROOF via video that contradicts everything the Leftists say, how can there be obstruction?
I've heard a few leftist talking points, and some rightist ones, but I haven't parroted any because I don't know them well and have no interest in talking points anyway. Frankly, I'm only talking about this at all because I suffer from that "someone is wrong on the internet" syndrome where my border-collies-of-the-mind need to get out and run and chew on things so I feel the need to correct statements that look like BS. I don't actually have a dog in whatever big political epic struggle you seem to imagine yourself engaged in. My life is peachy, and will be peachy regardless whether some guy who watches too much TV in Montana thinks I ought to watch more Tucker Carlson!If you parrot the Leftist talking points, then what are you?
All my views are my own, and actually I pride myself on my independence of thought. If I happen to say something that overlaps with something the Left has said I won't lose any more sleep over it than if something I say overlaps with a Rightist talking point that's fine with me too.
As I've gotten older the political opinions I feel confident in has dwindled down and down. At this point I would stand up for 2A rights, against legal abortion, and in favor of full drug legalization. That's it. That does not map to Leftists anyway.
