I am coming to the end of these, also. I am well into 2019 at this point, though the bookmarks sometimes dart back to the past.
Google disproportionately links to CNN, NYT, WaPo. You knew that, but it's good to have some audit numbers. August 2019
Related: Even when the Washington Post publishes a data-driven op-ed from a writer at 538, stating that gun-control measures are not likely to help and may do harm, they have to lead with a gun-control video. It is an intentional method of creating interference with your new learning, and is deeply dishonest. October 2017
First Yale, then Duke. Psychiatrist believes Trump could be responsible for more deaths than Mao, Stalin, and Hitler. He doesn't say how, exactly. I would have been interested where he thought those deaths were going to come from. This is not just some guy, some random prescriber mouthing off at lunch about his political beliefs. Duke is is top medical school. He was able to secure a national TV audience. Well, it's CNN, which nobody watches anymore. It has become the Time magazine of television. So maybe I shouldn't worry so much about his national audience after all. August 2019.
Poorest 20% of Americans are richer than the median of most European nations. Two things to always mention when national poverty numbers are cited:
First, advocates give you the numbers of what the lowest quintile has before government help. We spend a lot of money to help them, and they aren't so poor after. The mentally ill and others who live mostly on disability income and food stamps do have it very hard. Those checks aren't large.
Second, you get different numbers about what people have when you measure consumption instead of income, and these also point to less poverty. The reasons for the difference are varied. People rack up debt. They are given help and gifts from friends, relatives, and charities. They work under the table. They have income from crime.
The article cites some less-known reasons why Europeans are not as well off as we assume, which are worth the read. August 2019.
