Excellent piece. I have had so many of these critiques swirling in my head but couldn’t string them together as cogently as you have in this essay. I’m thankful you know what real research looks like. I see one of the Bernie commenters encourages you to not use MSM sources because he/she doesn’t understand the difference between primary and secondary sources and valid journalism vs propaganda.
