CNN features Trump. Fox fires Tucker. Are these things essential or distractions? 

If you consume media, even alternative media, we guarantee most of what you’ve heard has been ephemeral and fleeting. The partisan commentators say the same things over and over. But is something deeper happening in these stories?

Yes, because…

There’s a reason CNN featured Trump in his own town hall, despite the fact that the network has been so opposed to Trump. On top of that, there’s an interesting history of how he became president, and it helps explain why he’s both so loved and so loathed.

Also, Tucker Carlson’s firing is a signal – a harbinger of likely events to come in in the second half of this decade. If you think the censorship and disinformation war was ugly, you’ve not seen anything yet.

P.S. In case you missed it, the previous episode was titled The Gish Gallop to Gomorrah – Ep 45. In that episode, we analyzed a certain form of argumentation by traditionalist conservatives that starts in the Garden of Eden, aka, 1950s, then weaves its way to today’s hot-button social issues, aka, Gomorrah.
