Hospitals were more than happy to implement fatal protocols during covid because of all the government money.

Does it even need an explanation? The murder rate isn't constant. Look at 2015-2016, a much bigger swing in the numbers in % terms.

Are you serious? 74 is still triple the long term average. Numbers fluctuate every year regardless ... and yes .. it's been widely reported on

The real answer is the studies are observational, ie they don't control for variables, so they have limited scientific weight. This is why they can wildly contradictory results, and the media publishes them as if they were gospel.

Yep, they got all conservatives in 1 sub the_donald, and then surgically removed it like a tumor, leaving only leftists crazies left. I think it was so bad they rewrote how the entire front page worked at one point to keep the_donald off of it.

Reddit was a small website in the beginning. Digg was the goto site on the Internet, similar to how Reddit is now but with less subs. The whole idea of Digg was the users would upvote the stories they liked. But people quickly worked out if they could game the website by buying votes or whatever they could drive enormous amounts of Web traffic to their sites. Power users and their network of friends basically took over all content submission on the site. The site transformed into advertising disguised as news and everyone knew it. The admins did nothing to fix it. People started to move to the alternative which was reddit. The final nail in the coffin was when the site owner just sold the whole website, making bank but destroying it entirely in the process. It still exists today but as a curated news site which was the opposite reason it existed in the first place.

Reddit for years I think escaped the worst of obvious cheating to drive traffic. Not saying it wasn't happening but not to the level it happened on digg. Part of the reason was that the site grew so big, to buy votes you'd need a lot of accounts. But then the 2016 election happened and the big boys moved in. Due to some campaign finance loop hole they were allowed to shill online and they had a budget of millions to do it. It wasn't even a secret correct the record detailed it on their website. But they absolutely fucked reddit in the process. It transformed it into the center of the online anti trump resistance where the front page was filled with obvious botted spam. And similar story the admins did nothing. I think the force driving the content also corrupted the entire admin team. Anyone that isn't a hard-core leftist is probably banned from all the major subs or shadow banned at this point. This leaves just the left wing crazies circle jerking each other. I think the obvious botted spam has reduced but they have radically shifted the politics base on the site. Subs like the politics one are probably entirely managed by some organisation like correct the record. The bias is so extreme there probably hasn't been an an article that wasn't negative towards republicans since 2017.

I remember it. It was some campaign funding loop hole that allowed them to shill online. It wasn't even a secret, correct the record publicly announced they were going to do it and they had a budget of millions. The worst part is reddit admins allowed it to happen.

It wouldn't surprise me if that was true. Controlling the narrative is important to the establishment. I mean look at what happened to twitter before musk took over. The staff were like 99% democrats. That's not an accident.

I would assume so, either that or reddit is on the payroll. With the IPO coming up ..

So the report comes out that Joe Biden willfully mishandled classified documents, and posed a serious danger to national security, but no charges were recommended, in part because they concluded he had serious deficits in his mental acuity, not even remembering when his term as vice president started or ended, or even within a few years of when his son died.

He then gives a press conference saying his memory was fine, before confusing Egypt's Sisi with the president of Mexico.

And reddit gushes like this guy is on fire. We live in upside-down world.
