But if Medium is going to promote political writing — especially at a time like this — it must hire some fact checkers and actual journalists to screen those stories it decides to promote before it bestows them on an impressionable public.

Bless you for this.

When I joined Medium, inexplicably, because I had certain not asked for them nor indicated any political preference, my feed was jammed with articles from a well-known leftist agitprop site which has, for years, had a problematic relationship with the truth.

It was only after a painstakingly long period during which I blocked all of their writers (and it seems like they have thousands) did they stop appearing in my feed.

When it comes to commenting on Matters Political, I am as guilty as the next person, perhaps more so. That said, it would be nice to read some talented writing now and again. The Political Primal Screams have a tendency to wear one out after awhile.

Free markets, free minds. Question all narratives. If you think one political party is right and the other party is evil, the problem with our politics is you.
