We ARE The Balance, by Raúl Ilargi Meijer

The onslaughts from the propaganda complex are apparently outmatched by a few voices in the alternative media. From Raúl Ilargi Meijer at theautomaticearth.com:

Absolutely brilliant. People easily forget that they are being bombarded with one-dimensional echo chamber “news” 25 hours a day, and when someone says something that differs from this, they think they must parrot the 25 hour-a-day stuff to provide “balance”.

The entire media apparatus, with very few exceptions, started churning out a hundred Orange Man Bad pieces a day. And when I dared put out some different views, I became a blind Trump groupie.
