Content seems mildly intriguing but not enough for me to slog through the poor writing.

Kid I worked with a few years ago was into some real weird conspiracy theories. Shit I thought died in the 80s. Had this interaction once:

"Hey bro, have you heard about fluoride in the water?"

"…yeah?"

"Mass genocide."

Walks away

My comment from another forum:

    That's great, and all this "let's work together" sunshine and rainbows sounds real nice, but here's the thing: what Sen Warren said on the Senate floor was not divisive, incendiary rhetoric. It was factual, reasoned critique in service of a debate about Trump's pick for AG.

    Calling out racism is not divisive. Racism is.

i heard impressionable teens?

Mm, disagree. One of the best parts of listening to RTJ is when you realize how fucking ridiculous their lyrics are-- and they still sound badass. One of my fav moments in the Tiny Desk is El looking kind of embarrassed by the thought of spilling kids on NPR's couch.

Ye I'm listening to rtj3 and I gotta agree

Mmmmkay, but their shallow analysis of the cause of the "fake news" epidemic aside, the fairly coherent argument that advances in audio and video editing technology will make it more difficult for your average media consumer to distinguish between legitimate and fake journalism, thus exacerbating the existing phenomenon, remains.
