The opening scene of HBO's "The Newsroom"

While there might be some justification to some of the things Jeff Daniels says in this video - at the current political situation in the USA more as ever - our emphasize is just one sentence in the last paragraph of his rant. We highlight the important words. It's all about being informed. There are many echo-chambers at social media platforms, many so called "News broadcasts" are mere opinion websites.
Transcript from video: "We sure used to be. We stood up for what was right! We fought for moral reasons, we passed and struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbors, we put our money where our mouths were, and we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and cultivated the world's greatest artists and the world's greatest economy. We reached for the stars, and we acted like men. We aspired to intelligence; we didn't belittle it; it didn't make us feel inferior. We didn't identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election, and we didn't scare so easy. And we were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed. By great men, men who were revered. The first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one - America is not the greatest country in the world anymore."


We started this website as a "one-stop" internet presence for English speaking expats living at the Baja peninsula. We will try to find fact based information for you vs the common served up paid content published with monetary agendas. 
We also will cover current events in North America and other global locations by syndicating news, not opinions, from trustworthy not-for-profit news agency, sources like AP (Associated Press), Reveal, The Marshall Project, The Frontier, The Public Herald, Discourse, The Reentry Project, Orb, High Country News, Texas Tribune, The Lens and Pro Publica. We hope - with media credibility in question - to cover an ever-more-pressing need for trustworthy journalism.
