2/7/22 - NBC State Media

In Which We Discuss:

1. USA fighting Chinese propaganda by using a private media conglomerate as our own state media.

2. Whether or not the jobs numbers are good, it’s good to remember that they’re always fake

3. CA’s single payer demise is not an indication of voter sentiment, Politico. Stop using consultants as sources.

4. MN Police doing a great job of disproving the one bad apple theory

5. Meanwhile Joe BIden still publicly believing in the one bad apple theory

6. Garcetti holds his breath in photos while Los Angeles holds their breath waiting for him to just go to India already.
