Are We Being Played?

Our country is facing a huge political crisis.

Millions are living life in fear of an accident or illness, insured or not, while being overworked and underpaid.

Hate is brandished 24/7.

Men, women, and children are being mowed down in sprays of bullets.

Our air, water, and food are about to become less safe as our EPA is dismantled.

Greed is robbing the majority of dignity and the pursuit of happiness.

AND WE OBSESS, or so it seems, with whatever juicy SHINY scandal the MEDIA tosses out to the point that dozens of discussion threads on the same scandal bury important news threads.

Are we being played? Are there those among us now intentionally working to diminish the quality of service this site has provided for years?

I don't say much here, but I read everyday and have done so for many years.

Lately, it seems like we are being played as TOO little real news shows up.

Too many enticing titles draw us into a NOTHING....literally nothing written.

That said, thank you DUers for all the work you do to bring the news under this umbrella.

1. You are being played by youself

DU has trash this thread and trash by keyword features.

If the 1st page of GD is filled with threads you describe as juicy shiny scandals, it's because you want it that way.
