If I could pick a year which I'd like technology the most it would be around 1996. I miss the time before pictures were so widely available and people started spending a lot of time on the internet. I could do without the internet whatsoever basically except for maybe the early primitive days around 1996-1998 or so. I remember when Facebook started in 2001 or so I had a college friend who was using it. That was really the beginning of the end once the 90's ended. I don't understand why people think technology in the mid 90's wasn't good enough.

Sinclair's been buying them up, and mandating that they preach the family's political views instead of local news. It doesn't take much effort to find out who they want you to be skeptical of, and who they try to protect from criticism at all costs.
They're not the only ones pulling this stunt, either.
Sites like this help. They list which sources try to avoid bias, and which ones have a bias that doesn't get in the way of accuracy - a right or left perspective, by itself, isn't a problem, and you can miss a lot of good journalism if you don't seek out the best of both.
They also warn you of who to avoid: their list of the least trustworthy are filled with names that feign skepticism or try to steal the names of more reputable sources.
