    We're all familiar with the "usual suspects" when it comes to right wing news. Included in that group is FOX "news", Alex Jones and Infowars, the World Net Daily, Town Hall, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, and Sinclair Broadcasting, to name just a few.

    Today, I was exposed to an article written by John Hawkins, who I had never heard of. Here's his bio:

    What caught my eye was the fact that he is the publisher for "Right Wing News". If you would like to see where your conservative uncle Fred gets his wacky ideas, this link will tell you all that you want to know:

    Guy, typical. In other civil countries they ban such people from publishing such crap. But yeah it is Trumps favorite selected media. He wants things just as in Russia: A State owned "propaganda machine" who does not dare to tell their "leaders" the "truth"

    Thanks for sharing, guy.

    He seems like yet another of the countless right-wing personalities who are prone to conspiracy theories and hysteria, which is a great fit for millions of Americans who easily fall prey to their nonsense.

    When did fact checking and common sense writing become four letter words??

    I am copying this from the Physics-Astronomy Facebook page:

    "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

    Yes Jared and Schmidt; my opinion exactly. Since we've got a huge portion of this country in the "rust belt", "coal belt", "evangelical belt", "the ex-slave belt", as well the "dumb belt" , which covers an huge portion of this country it is no wonder that we get Presidents like Trump. He's going to "rally" this weekend in Pittsburg and of course gets all these dumb asses cheering for him. Yes the "strain" of anti-intellectualism is huge in this country; thanks to its non-culture only driven by "money" and "greed", certainly not by "brains" or proper education..

    Like the YouTube phenomenon. Get attention to succeed. Trouble is the most successful centers around right wing self centered shock journalism. That was a long list of right wing writers. I can't name one person equally off center to the left. Nice doesn't sell.
