8. This is due to 30 years of the media spewing hate toward democrats. Our media is 100% responsible

for what is going on right now: for donald trump, for the white nationalism, for the pandemic, for the lopsided economy. This is what happened since the Fairness Doctrine was trashed. It needs to be reinstated, and it is clear that our Freedom of Speech needs a few rules besides yelling fire in a crowded theater. We need to start with some laws about telling the truth and true representation of events, and labeling opinion as opinion.

The media acts like one idiot's opinion is equal to 320 million other people's beliefs, and that makes it all "fair and balanced". It's insane, not to mention deliberately divisive.
