I have a sinking feeling this is all too common. We all need to join LaDonna in this fight. This is a small symptom of a far greater problem. Go LaDonna!!

Kiana Chambers How about you create some new content? As a photographer, there’s nothing more infuriating than people demand more images for them to consume. Be grateful. That’s it.

I hate that "feminism" is a bad word in the US. What's wrong with believing women are human beings?

I'm with Beals. The Democratic party (of which I have been a loyal voting member for my entire voting life) has virtually abandoned the working class. They pay lip service, but don't deliver. We need to get money out of politics. Period. We need to go big, go bold if we want to win elections.

Ty Walstead Get back in your safe space and let the grown-ups handle politics, you're too little for these discussions and are clearly terrified of any immigrants, much less illegals.

Ty Walstead Oh and I bet you would never in your keyboard warrior life say any of this to anyone's face or act on this. By yourself.. Not with a rally by your side. Let's face it, none of you sensitive pansies would approach a POC by yourself.

I couldn't even listen to this. is this supposed to be unbiased journalism, because if that's what you are claiming, ive got to call bullshit. this is pandering, biased, and highly opinionated. the is not even an attempt at subtlety. are you serious about this garbage?

Daniel Luna This is not an "unbiased journalism" podcast. It's not even a news podcast. It's a storytelling and commentary podcast that, yes, often editorializes on its subjects. Did you know about the difference between "commentary" and "news?" The former is opinionated as a matter of course. In fact, it's supposed to be. Have you ever read the Opinion & Commentary section of a paper? I'd highly recommend it, so that you can get a better feel for the difference. You'll notice that opinion pieces, columns, and editorials are written from a particular point of view, and often try to argue for one side of an issue. They are absolutely biased, and are meant to be, because the whole point is to present an opinion. Contrast these pieces with, say, the articles in section A of the paper, which do not present arguments or openly feature opinion. These articles are "news," and are supposed to present a more unbiased snapshot of an event. Sometimes bias still sneaks in, but it's not supposed to be as overt, because it's not in the special Opinion section that exists for such things. It's unfortunate that you think something is "garbage" if it expresses an opinion that you don't agree with. I often read or listen to opinions I don't agree with, because I still think they're worthwhile, and maybe they'll help me see something from a different perspective. Plus, I have friends and family members who have different opinions from me. I don't think they're garbage people.

Why did you mention Roseanne Barr by name, but Valerie Jarrett as just "An African American woman?" THERE is that unconscious bias. WTF

Why does the left always equate right wing with Facism? It seems to me that the left feels comfortable with that assertion, and if so...can we equate the left as Socialist? They make it sound that since they're "for the people" they somehow have an altruistic utopian moral agenda centered in equality. Maybe it would be a good idea to read a little more about the history of Socialism.

zemorex Yes, feel free to associate the left as socialist. The majority of western Europe are socialist countries. The take care of their people, strive to care for the environment, almost all rank much higher than the U.S. year after year in populace happiness, and much more literate, have better educated populations, longer life expectancy, vastly better healthcare, and lower crime rates...all while enjoying just the same personal frreedoms as we do here in America, often more so. So yes, PLEASE, do start equating the left with Socialism; it's a badge of honor.
