    I see former prezbo is still the great divider

    https://ijr.com/the-declaration/201...59961628&utm_medium=email&utm_source=hs_email

    from the article:

    In a new interview with David Letterman, who is hosting a new talk show on Netflix, the former president said Fox News viewers are “living on a different planet” than people who regularly get their news from other networks.

    Obama’s comment came after Letterman asked if he considers President Donald Trump’s constant cries of “fake news” or potential international interference into the 2016 presidential election a bigger threat, as Fox News reported.

    “One of the biggest challenges we have to our democracy is the degree to which we don’t share a common baseline of facts,” Trump’s liberal predecessor replied. “If you watch Fox News, you are living on a different planet than you are if you are listening to NPR.”

    What do you expect from a guy born in one of those sh**hole countries?

    Oh and nice work with the title, but you forgot to cut off the context of the comment here.

    No, he didn't say 'another planet', he said 'different planet'. There's a difference. 'Another planet' has a negative connotation to it that 'different planet' does not. And what he said is absolutely true. Fox viewers and NPR listeners are in different worlds.

    There was another that was deleted, I imagine for being just as misleading as Bill's. As I said on that one: Who would have guess that a Fox viewer would post something misleading?

    probably because you only posted half the sentence which gives an entirely different meaning than if you posted the whole sentence. But I suspect you knew that.

    Unfortunately, the locked thread is already gone. But it was misleading because you didn't include the entire sentence for context, as was explained when that thread was locked prior to it being deleted.

    Thank you Barry Soetero, foreign student from Indonesia. The one with the sealed school records and the CIA front company employment history.

    Are thread titles permitted that are misleading and inaccurate? Maybe the poster didn’t read the article.

    What president obama actually said per the article...

    “One of the biggest challenges we have to our democracy is the degree to which we don’t share a common baseline of facts,” Trump’s liberal predecessor replied. “If you watch Fox News, you are living on a different planet than you are if you are listening to NPR.”

    I think I just did. The full sentence has an entirely different meaning than half of it.
    Apparently, your excuse "Hey, I wasn't misleading. I just posted a misleading article!"

    People are arguing that your title is misleading. Which is why the last time somebody posted this in the same way, it was locked and deleted. It might match the title of the article, but that comes down to your choice of media source not being able to produce a headline that is considered accurate enough for this board.
