among a zillion other reasons its a terrible idea is the chinese would get their claws in a backdoor and any facts that implicated china as in the wrong would be described as racist disinfo, probably banned from social media. nd this would be justified with lies about increased violence vs asans caused by misinformation. we alraedy hear it. free speech isnt free anymore if it incites violence. @Winston1 you carry the flag for this with regard to jan 6th. trump says he won, just like a billion other candidates named clinton and gore, and you call it insurrection, all media falls in line and describes it as the "big lie". and even if it is the big lie, we dont need it fact checked by govt and recommendations about it or anything made to media. we need govt media overlords like we need a fucking hole in our heads. this is important. even rex knows its a bad idea, but he cant say he has an opinion for partisan reasons. this is why our currnet political divide is so dangerous. people will not take a position on something they know to be terrible, purely because they are slaves to their party dogma. rex goes so far with the party dogma he blames 100% of the covid deaths under trump on trump personally (but notably not china, media wont allow that!), but zero of the deaths under biden on biden. sounds absurd but thats actually his opinion. and @Winston1, you are also poor at critical thinking with regard to the media and TDS. you need to see how overt hatred for trump is seen as the crown jewel of media opinions and anything bad about him is lauded and amplified. if you understaood this you could have a more sophisticated point of view. this will of course make you angry, and like rex you will want to insult me in response. its ok i can take it.
