Videos depicting the human experience.
Video material discussing various aspects of the 2020 SARS-CoV-2 so called pandemic.
Note: you'll find many of the videos are now gone. I'm leaving the entries intact to give you an idea of the extent of YouTube censorship. This action from the platform that was founded on 'broadcast yourself' is yet further evidence of narrative manipulation by corp at the behest of . . . ?
Exploring issues with urban living. It's easy to view these problems with a judgement eye, however, I would suggest viewing from an internal perspective of possible solutions instead of judgement, see what comes to mind.
The Michigan State Senate Committee on Oversight holds a hearing featuring testimony regarding absentee ballot counting at the TCF Center in Detroit.
The Red Lion is based on a very simple idea – take the most common name for a pub (The Red Lion) and then take the people who drink in the 600 pubs across the UK with that name to throw light on our drinking habits. What emerges is a unique portrait of Britain as a nation of drinkers – a documentary that, part hilariously, part disturbingly shows just how deeply booze and the boozer are woven into the warp and weft of British society and culture.
From the tipsy eighty year old widows to the 15-pints-a-day landlord. From the lonely singleton divorcee to the raucous student members of the university netball team, men and women, groups and individuals, young and old – we all use the pub and alcohol in our different ways. Is Britain as a nation in the grip of a serious drink problem? Or are we just having a little bit of fun – regularly?
We've all come across online fact checkers that purport to warn us away from independent media sites under the guise of protecting us from fake news. But who is behind these fact check sites? How do they operate? And if these ham-fisted attempts at soft censorship aren't the solution to online misinformation, what is? Join James for this week's important edition of The Corbett Report podcast, where we explore the murky world of information gatekeeping and ask "Who will fact check the fact checkers?"
A quick look at Edward Bernays, the father of PR and propaganda.

El Salvador is set to eclipse Honduras as the country with the highest homicide rate in the world. There have already been over 5,700 murders this year in a country with a population of just over six million. El Salvador’s murder rate is now the highest it’s been since the end of the country’s brutal civil war — there is on average around one murder an hour. The staggering death toll follows the breakdown of a truce between powerful, rival gangs and the government. Police and military are now combatting the gangs head-on and, as part of its so-called "iron fist" strategy, gang members are being charged with a new crime — membership of a terrorist organization. VICE News correspondent Danny Gold headed to El Salvador to investigate what many are now calling a war between the street gangs and the government.
