A lot of fresh Warren bashing recently she must have hit a nerve

@lawremipsum It's one of those things that we have to watch play out in the public sphere that probably should be a quiet discussion between two individuals.

@densetsu they are certainly perversely motivated

@lawremipsum Frankly annoyed by how much Freedom of the Press is just used for general shittiness lately. I guess moreso than usual.

@densetsu it's kind of a cultural trend to lean on the first amendment to justify terribleness, press might as well get on the crap train.

@lawremipsum The trick to riding the crap train is to make money before the new person jumping on the crap train kicks you off.

@lawremipsum This Sanders v. Warren thing really emphasizes quite a bit how Mastodon is different.

CNN pushes this narrative. CNN barely has a presence here so you might not know if even exists unless you're keyed into politics.

If you are keyed into politics, this type of fracas is also hidden typically behind USPol as people work it themselves or with their followers.

If there is the potential for bots or algorithms pushing it as news, that is absent.

It's weird in that it's normal?

@densetsu right? It actually more closely matches the relative importance of a given political fracas. It makes it such a better space for conversation and engaging to not have an entire network beating you into submission about trivia and the outrage of the hour.

@lawremipsum @densetsu I was wondering when this would make it over here. This matches so much more closely with my in person convo about it than how :birdsite: is rn.

@britvulcan @lawremipsum I've seen it over here a bit, but the timbre is different. People are angry about the whole thing, but their anger isn't necessarily exacerbated by the platform.
