I’m not sure the headline is slightly misleading: Trust In Corporate Media Linked To Less Actual Knowledge About COVID-19
…but there *is* a real danger in corporate media mixing in “sponsored influencers” with actual news.
And is there a truer observation: There is no question that nearly 70 percent of the country uses social media – and those companies pretend to be news. But social media is just aggregating things people post. If you click on a post someone made about a topic, Facebook decides you want more of it. Including if you are only reading it to ridicule it.
Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) – aka Godzilla vs Kong vs Tron. It’s very shiny and the action/fight sequences are pretty fun.
Ironically, the movie would’ve been if it were actually *more* Godzilla vs. Kong and *less* stupid humans doing whatever they’re doing (while brining a little girl everywhere danger is, sure, why not).
And honestly, if this version of Godzilla’s atomic breath can blow a hole *through the friggin’ earth’s crust* (!?! WTF?), what chance does Kong really have? And too bad they decided to tone down Godzilla’s iconic roar.
Grade: shiny meh
Until we have holographic projections a la Star Wars, this is brilliant!
I’ve always thought there was something…off-putting about the “model minority” label.
What a brilliant idea! Fear is definitely a better motivator!

saudade – a melancholic longing or yearning…“a vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist, for something other than the present.”
From Smoke Gets in Your Eyes and Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlin Doughty: “…a longing, tinged with nostalgia, madness, and sickness over something you have lost.”
