    Turns out that even though the "Putin" money is fake from a fake story, it still spends better than Harvey Weinstein's money.

    I personally think there are other things that we could try before we try that, but it would require putting far more resources into these communities.
    You are so misguided. The true "systemic racism" in this story is how Black Americans VOTE. For the most part, they've been voting for crooked, anti-business, liberal Democrats since 1965 (the same year the Civil Rights bill was passed on LBJ's watch), and it has failed them. When the leaders in your community are named Marion Berry, Jesse Jackson Jr, Ray Nagin, Charles Rangel, Kwame Kilpatrick, etc... you're just asking for trouble that you really can't afford. And it doesn't help when the names are "white guys" and liberal Democrats either. We've seen entire cities like Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, Newark, and others run into the ground after continuously electing liberal Democrats for the last 50 years.

    During last year's Baltimore riots for example, I read that the City of Baltimore hasn't elected a Republican Mayor since the 1960's. Since that time, Baltimore lost over 100,000 manufacturing jobs, or 75% of its industrial employment. The collapse of industry led to a number of changes in the demographic makeup of the City and the surrounding region, contributing to a crisis in urban poverty that lingers today. With liberal Democrats at the helm, factories bled manufacturing jobs, and Baltimore bled residents. Baltimore watched nearly one-third of its population leave. Good businesses fled the city, followed by workers. Ultimately, Baltimore's population shrank from 950,000 in 1960 to 657,000 by 1997. Today, Baltimore's population is at a 100-yr low, with 614,664 residents. That's down 1% in 2016. Is it any wonder they are rioting in Baltimore?

    Meanwhile, Baltimore’s suburbs grew from 387,656 residents in 1950 to over 1.8 million in 1997.

    To your point above regarding the author, the only way to really lift mass numbers of people out of poverty, is through jobs. Business. And Baltimore is a great example of what happens when a city doesn't take care of its' business community. And Baltimore is only one of many examples.

    So, what has this heavy, systemic, liberal Democratic voting pattern earned the African American community? Bankrupt cities, higher crime rates, smaller populations, fewer jobs, lower incomes, increased welfare, terrible educations, higher birth rates to unwed mothers and poor neighborhoods. You would think with a record like that, the African American community would try something new and different at the voting booth. (Even on Obama's watch, the income's for Black American's went down!) And with a murder rate as high as Chicago's, you would think they would try anything different than voting for another liberal Democrat.

                Put another way, some Republicans believe firmly that climate change is a falsehood and that humans are not responsible in any way for climatic change. Those in the scientific community might object to an anti-climate change Republican serving as a fact checker for climate change stories at Snopes and flagging every article about a new scientific study on climate change as fake news. Yet, we have no way of knowing the biases of the fact checkers at Snopes – we simply have to trust that the site’s views on what constitutes neutrality are the same as ours.

                When I asked for comment on the specific detailed criteria Snopes uses to screen its applicants and decide who to hire as a fact checker, surprisingly David demurred, saying only that the site looks for applicants across all fields and skills. He specifically did not provide any detail of any kind regarding the screening process and how Snopes evaluates potential hires. David also did not respond to further emails asking whether, as part of the screening process, Snopes has applicants fact check a set of articles to evaluate their reasoning and research skills and to gain insight into their thinking process.


                This was highly unexpected, as I had assumed that a fact checking site as reputable as Snopes would have a detailed written formal evaluation process for new fact checkers that would include having them perform a set of fact checks and include a lengthy set of interview questions designed to assess their ability to identify potential or perceived conflicts of interest and work through potential biases.

                Well, since you brought WaPo into this, they gave this Clinton Uranium story 4 Pinocchios.

                https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.8781f86224f2

                So they validated Snopes on this particular issue.

                My point still stands. If Obama had said the exact same things, Tyler'd be posting outraged takes from all his favorite websites (and yeah, many of the people who feel Trump shouldn't have stirred things up would be singing a different tune as well).

                Are you serious? If obama had blasted in the NFL owners for not doing what was correct, I would have cheered that he had finally done something correct while in office. There was no chance of that happening though- he was too busy trying to destroy America and encourage people to hate it. That's hilarious that you could even think it could have happened.
