This borders on soapbox material, but here we go...

Where you get your news depends pretty much entirely on your political bent.

Mainstream news wants to be the first to report, and is willing to make stuff up (or intentionally omit facts) to further their political handlers' agendas.

People (like you and me) only hear what they want to hear. Nothing will change that.

Civil discourse is dead because everything is an insult or somehow offensive now.

Political correctness has destroyed civilization.
