Sorry, I can't find the answer to the question I heard.

3. Alright, programmer types, time to create a new Alexa skill

At least where she says something like,

"Mueller and Congress are working on it. Ask me again in a week or two"

Or

"My daddy Jeff Bezos would sure like that."

Or,

have her give a list of the latest headlines relevant to "impeach Trump"

(that one might take a little work)

4. That's what our Alexa said, too. One would imagine that the folks in charge of writing her

Sorry, I can't find the answer to the question I heard.
That's what our Alexa said, too. One would imagine that the folks in charge of writing her "ai" responses would have come up with a snappy response... or something that's educational and factually accurate.

5. On the 8th of March I asked her -

"Alexa, today we celebrate the International Day of what?"

She did not know.

I tried to tell her but she would not listen.

I finally said "Ask a woman - Bing is not the best search engine"

6. Oh! Alexa uses Bing? That explains a lot of her non-sequitur replies.

Occasionally she'll say "I found this on Wikipedia: (info info info). Did that answer your question?"

I wonder if there's any way to override that configuration setting, or if I can specifically instruct Alexa to "ask Google".

9. Me too. I won't pay for my own surveillance

 

They're going to spy on us. Don't be a willing participant. At least force them to make the effort.

No "smart" phone for me either.

15. "Hey Siri, Impeach Trump"

"Here's what I found on the web for 'Impeach Trump'".

followed by half a dozen links to news/opinion pieces.

But no direct action.
