5. Well, I don't agree. Having at least two comparable sides presented
seems like a good idea to me. Anyway, the Corporations seem to be determining what is "true" and what is "news", etc. nowadays. That seems even worse because we don't vote on Corporations. Freedom of speech is kinda out of balance when one speaker has 474 million dollars and the other speaker has $27, 500 dollars.
