For A Critical Review of MAGA Pill


Yesterday there was much negative discussion online on the mainstream media (of course!) of President Trump's retweet of MAGAPill.com, a site listing his achievements and news about the Administration that was promptly, and falsely, labeled an anti-Semitic conspiracy space
It is worth reviewing (separately) the controversy over "Q Anon," and the discussion over the nature of this mention. In this post I wanted to call for a critical review of the wide breadth of the President's achievements as captured by MAGAPill. 

I did not find this site to be anything like what the hysterical headlines claimed. 

It should be noted that ALL of MAGA Pill’s headlines link to actual news sources. 

As always I hope that we can get back to a discussion of facts as facts, and not as political footballs. In an environment where even NBC admits that coverage of the President has been overwhelmingly negative, this listing is a refreshing relief.

We need our journalists. I am seeing a shift toward renewed objectivity. I hope the trend continues. 

If you want to be part of a better journalistic future, you could start by going over there and critically analyzing the source material against the headlines offered.
