Dear, Ezinne, you are a very sophisticated lady who has got the dark side of the coin down pat. And I agree that the dark side is currently in charge, but that has not always been the case. It wasn’t until cable news came along and news was require to make a profit that the shit hit the fan.

Now we have Fox News and right-wing talk radio entertaining the foolish and the malcontents with conspiracy theory nonsense for big bucks, so that truth is just a blurry mess and the Donald is King of it all.
