That's over a year old. So we have news organizations propagating lies that have already been essentially debunked ?

Welcome to the world of alternate facts, realities and rules I guess.

Not sure why I would be surprised, typical tactic of our government... Scare, divide, obfuscate and enforce rules that are against our interest. I'm sure they'll come up with a really catchy name that makes it seem like they're helping us ... Patriot act anyone ? . How about the recent bipartisan "taxpayers first" act ? Hey, they finally passed bartisan legislation because the tax preparer lobby paid all of them.

Thanks nan70, I hadn't read that (not on Twitter, Facebook, etc).

I should have said "I'm not on Twitter or Facebook", worse than the news for me.

Not exactly mainstream media but, it did come up on my news feed. Hopefully it will pop up on others who have clicked on those other misleading stories.

I had no idea what "misanthropic" meant so I looked it up and found a photo of me when I was 17. :(

I’ve learned to keep my pie hole shut because I don’t know as much anymore. But I’m not on a psych ward in a straight jacket!


I'm with you Laurie. The news makes me insane(er). :woohoo:

An atheist liberal niece of mine, who I never seem to agree with but love dearly, told me that the google "Discover" news think on my phone was very Left biased. I didn't believe her until I tested it out checking each news link with mediabiasfactcheck.com. Then I would tell "Discover" not to send anymore stories to me from that news agency. I did that for about a month and then I no longer got any news. I never got news sent to me from a right biased news agency. I always thought google was neutral but I was wrong. :(
That is why I have given up and only watch the weather now. :-bd

FOIA docs show FDA’s data on kratom deaths is complete propaganda

As the FDA fearmongers over alleged Kratom associated deaths, documents on these deaths reveal that the American people are being lied to.

Keep Kratom legal.

this nonsense article is all over every media outlet. finally seen one today from kratom advocates that called out the B.S. of the FDA.
I believe one the deaths was a homicide from a gunshot to the heart and they listed that with the total kratom deads.
The way the post in this thread tears apart the lies from the freedom on info act is great. But that needs to be picked up by the A.P. and all the other media outlets that ran with the FDA version.
As i said earlier i stopped reading the paper and watching news. I just read though some stuff on my phone with the google news feed. so now kratom articles show up.
Only news i do watch is "Vice News" on HBO.

EDIT: here it is:
"FDA previously disclosed in 2018 the use of kratom was associated with 44 deaths. But the deaths involved products intentionally adulterated with other dangerous substances and other factors, Haddow said. For example, one person died in a homicide due to a gunshot wound to the chest, Jane Babin, Ph.D., wrote in a white paper the AKA released in August 2018.

Tiggermanscrat- Interesting, Google doesn't seem to have any problem sending me news links from Fox, which I think we can all agree is right leaning. Must have had their algorithm wrong with you.

As far as I'm aware, most of these huge media machines couldn't care less what side your on, of anything, as long as you keep clicking and they can keep building an advertising profile on you.

They all seem to play ignorant of what their algorithms are doing when it suits them. I'm waiting for them all to fuse and become skynet.

AP, Reuters and PBS all seem to be relatively neutral sources of news.

Jayisk- he totally would have survived that chest wound if he wouldn't have had kratom in his system :)

I wasn't paranoid about big brother, or google, watching me,:ohmy: but after reading your post I checked my phone news again for about the 5th time today and there are stories there from the AP, BBC, Reuters, and NPR. I've never got them in my feed before!
Now I feel like I'm entering the twilight zone.:woohoo: Or the matrix for those who aren't old enough to remember the twilight zone. :)
Seriously, those stories are not new but they are just coming into my phone now.
Do you work for google? B-)
