I've noticed alot of new searches labled with "fact check" tags for example:
Were Pallets of Bricks Strategically Placed at US Protest Sites?
Claim: Government officials, law enforcement, billionaires, or antifa groups nefariously placed pallets of bricks at protest sites in U.S. cities to stoke violence during June 2020 demonstrations against police brutality.
Rating: Mostly false*
Protesters in many major U.S. cities used bricks to cause destruction or, in some cases, to injure police while walking on streets during the 2020 demonstrations.
No evidence suggests a coordinated effort existed on behalf of government entities or billionaires to place bricks on protest routes to incite violence during the demonstrations. Also, evidence showed that in many cases "suspicious" bricks depicted on social media were on streets for ongoing construction projects, not "planted" for protesters.
It is possible that protesters themselves could have strategically placed bricks in easily accessible spots to facilitate causing property damage, though no evidence proved that was indeed occurring.
I have real problems with these bs "fact check" sites. I know people are too lazy to check facts themselves, so they rely on these. Let's look at the example above:
So, in the case of government entities planting bricks, Snopes says it is "False." The reason is that there was no evidence.
But, in the case of the protestors themselves placing bricks, there is also no evidence. But this time, no evidence means "Undetermined."
That, my friends, is not a fact check, but an opinion. They contradict their own logic in the same passage, express a logically flawed opinion, and people think they are a reliable fact check site.
My verdict? Major fail!
Good point. Definitely needs tweaking. It didn't feel quite right, hence the reason I posted. A gift to the Internet courtesy of the Trump era.

Have you also brainwashed your dogs to blame the Russians?
Leverage over what? Trump has hammered the RU economy. Embarrassed their militarily. Broke their monopoly on natural gas in Europe.
All my complaining, I forgot today what today was.
