  1. Where do you get your news from?

    One youtube channel that I found recently that I've liked is Roaming Millenial. It's just one person giving her opinion, but it's given me some clue into opposing views without being particularly extreme. I do like Philip DeFranco too, I never even thought about a bias from his coverage so I guess he's doing it well.
  2. Where do you get your news from?

    I agree with dan-likes-trees. If anyone knows any good centrist to right slanted news, podcasts and shows that are good quality, I'd like to get in on that action.
  3. Where do you get your news from?

    I get most of my news from Youtube, Podcasts, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Google Suggestions and Reddit, probably in that order. I don't go to specific sites for news and basically just wait for someone to talk about it somewhere. To keep from being trapped in an echo chamber I do try to also follow people who I disagree with or don't particularly like, but that's also because I enjoy hating these people internally or laughing at their ridiculous logic. Sometimes though they say something that makes sense and I like to get a view on how other people think so it's interesting nonetheless. The whole fake news thing annoys me. There were some children in Macedonia who were making thousands by just inventing stories related to the US election. They started covering both sides but since they were making much more money targeting republicans, they focused on that instead. The fact that people just believe anything they read is disappointing but it is understandable, especially if they want to agree with the content. I'm not afraid to call out a shared story as fake if I see it on facebook and will happily tell the poster why it is inaccurate. I'm becoming more and more interested in giving people simple information on topics that are rife with misinformation and am working on a few blog posts to share with my facebook friends. Probably won't do anything to change their minds but I enjoy the research regardless.
  4. The Walking Dead

    I thought it was a fantastic episode. After watching the whole new season of Black Mirror I'm loving this new trend of depressing media.
  5. Is he moaning or just stating a fact?. Youtube Red is a move towards a different model of income that moves away from advertising, and it has to some extent been pushed along by adblockers.
  6. They might be giving him views, but he's not getting ad revenue from them. Should everyone in "luxury" markets be thankful they have a job at all? For some demographics, people like him are their main source of entertainment, same as TV used to be. There's somewhat of an adblockalypse since Apple made adblocking mainstream and Google is making efforts to change the way ads are presented to combat this. Both with this and the new specifications for making news content faster to load on the web. I don't like how Youtube is pulling an Apple Music and not paying youtubers for views during the free trial. If this is true they should change that very quickly.
  7. I already pay for Google Play Music and that's bundled in so I'm not going to complain about the removal of ads from Youtube and the ability for locked screen and offline playback and extra content. People will still get all their normal ad-paid videos, this is just like the extra content youtubers already put on services like patreon which increase youtuber revenue through their community, because ad supported revenue is not high enough to support the growth of certain styles of videos (mainly the ones that take a long time and are expensive, such as animation). It's a way for people who love watching youtube to help support the creators more. I think it's a good thing.
  8. Ace Attorney - One-Shot Mafia

    I had fun anyway.
  9. Weight Loss and Fitness 2015

    Have been using MyFitnessPal to keep myself to 1600 calories per day, done the couch to 5k programme and am on the last day of it and I've been gradually increasing how many laps I do of the swimming pool at the gym. Have lost around 1kg per week, been able to run 6.5km non stop and swim 1500 metres so I'm really glad with the way I've improved my fitness from basically doing nothing. Have lost nearly 9kg so far. Things are going well

    Haha, no one can resist my air guitar!
  11. Ace Attorney - One-Shot Mafia

    Yeah, you show em Dannyboy.
  12. Ace Attorney - One-Shot Mafia

    So your power is to see if I did target someone but not who it is? Because if it's not, then that shows tampering.
  13. Ace Attorney - One-Shot Mafia

    Showing that people are being messed with and information isn't as reliable as people may think.
  14. Ace Attorney - One-Shot Mafia

    Do you mean yourself? I protected you to see if you were interfered with and went on to try and lynch you because at first I thought you were untargetable but then for realising you were targeting the victim without interference. Funny how you accused sheikah of being suspicious for attacking the person he was trying to lynch, but then ask this clearly loaded question when I do the opposite.

    What a wonderful power that gives you "apparent" information. I don't care whether you believe it or not, it shows clear shenanigans with a "townie's" power. Good guess.
