Thank you Laura! Wonderful to see a nice reasonable length article on this subject! I was thinking of writing something about it, but this is SO much better with all the examples than I could have done. This is far more important than most people realize in shaping the world we live in. Democracy only works if people are actually *informed* of all the true facts, not just the spin and bits that support the directions someone in power prefers we “choose” to go in.
