However, I would expect any adult who can read would be able and willing to read both blogs and sift them for themselves, separating out the facts from the hype, and I would be open minded enough to read both to see what they said. Those who prefer an echo chamber obviously prefer echo chambers.
And the thing about disagreeing is- there are actually facts that are not a matter of agreement or disagreement.
It was blogs who caught the mainstream press using forged documents in more than one incident.
It was blogs who caught the mainstream press using photoshopped pictures, more than once.
It was blogs who caught Fox using a photograph of one crowd at an event and representing it as a crowd at a separate event.
It was blogs who caught the media cropping out details from their pictures that did not support the narrative.
I can also supp0ort my definition of trolling with multiple links to actual definitions. It's not 'my' definition- it actually is common usage.
Is your definition based on anything other than 'a troll is somebody whose opinions and sources I don't like?'
I objected to the comment "Jiro is trolling in another thread" to which you rushed in with your brand of aid. It was wrong to make that comment; matter of fact, that is MY definition of trolling.
If an opinion differs from mine, I take it with a grain of salt. Sometimes I learn something. When someone calls out another member and calls them a troll, I might object. It is my right to do so. You want to protect your Brotherhood of Conservatives? Do it. Proudly. I don't care. The Right outnumber the Left leaning members by a significant amount now. Where are the Left voices, you ask? THEY ARE NO LONGER POSTING HERE. O-TAY?
