Of course you'll think people are stupid if you read the New York Post.

I didn't even realize it was a NY Post article tbh - I was more shocked by the thought that some chick would actually think this is a good idea.  If it makes you feel better, here's a Forbes article with the same basic info...

I tried reading NYPost a while ago, and it's actually not as bad as I expected. Then again, maybe that's because my main experience with English-language rightwing press earlier had been Breitbart, to see what the fuss was about, and the British/Australian Spectator (which actually feels MORE radical than Breitbart, at least in what I saw of it.) NYP is obviously tame in comparison, and even has a good amount of feminist stuff you might well expect elsewhere. In a way, that's like the British Telegraph, or more moderate of Murdoch newspapers in Australia. I suppose I ought to also check out Kushner's NY Observer, to see their interpretation of events. They already gave us that 0 star Mother review, after all.

Speaking of Australia, ~80% of newspapers belong to Murdoch, and in many public places, like the school I went to, your choice is between Murdoch's The Australian, which is practically pure Fox News, and that state's Murdoch newspaper (my South Australia had The Advertiser, Queensland had The Courier Times, etc.), which is more like the Post and can be pretty moderate in comparison. More prosperous places can stock Australian Financial Review (like WSJ, but NOT Murdoch's) and The Age, which is explicitly liberal. As for Russian press, online and offline, it probably deserves a separate post.

As for the thread's topic: have any of you seen "The Storm" people, by any chance? I have spotted a few of those even on Quora, where they can be truly hilarious. Just today, I found one who believes Trump is taking down the Illuminati in the FBI.
