The local left and the local right can’t agree on much, but one thing is for sure: Both sides panned a local “conversation” focused on “fake news” and questioned the League of Women Voters’ credibility for hosting such an amateur presentation.
Reinette Senum: “Regarding the Snopes.com & NC Scooper “Conversation” last night at Sierra College in Grass Valley. I attempted to sit through it. Walked out. What a joke.”
The Scooper editor didn’t even show up: his voice was heard through a computer:
George Rebane: “Jo Ann and I had never attended a more lame, information free, and sophomoric presentation as we witnessed last night. The LWV used to be a real heads up organization and source of non-partisan voter information before its joining the progressives. No more.
“About half an hour into the thing, people of the Right and Left started walking out, as people realized that no one on stage knew what they were talking about. And we still don’t have any idea why Mr Finkelstein was invited to participate. Full disclosure – it pains me to admit that we were not the first to leave. ”
Good going, League of Women Voters!

Although there may have been others leaving the event I fail to see how the two parties mentioned agreeing on the conclusion could be in any way evidence of the conclusion itself.
Because they can’t agree on much — except this. It speaks volumes. Could someone please step forward and tell us how engaging this seminar was? After all, having a computer with a voice on stage instead of a person is like what people see at a three-ring circus.
Here, let me rephrase that. I left out a clause of the sentence.

The Scooper is a joke, and not like a haha joke, and you must know it if you have a half functioning brain. They’re really skeezy people. They appeal to the “lizard” in people.
Here’s how this topic should be handled when it comes to organizing a seminar. To begin with, all the panelists are on stage. lol.: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fake-news-the-first-amendment-tickets-37079414527
