And I firmly believe that this is why so much of the initial reporting is wrong, is because it’s all the result of a tainted universe in which these people live in the first place. The things that they believe are wrong. The things that guide them are incorrect. About us, at least. And so they start looking for evidence to prove what they feel, because what they are constantly doing is attempting to advance their political agenda. And that is what’s going on with this now.

What a rotten place, a horrible place.” It’s just the sheer volume of incorrect data that is passed on.
