*sigh*Wait, I attacked a source?
I stated a source was biased. I didn't dismiss anything that came from the source because it was biased. There's a huge difference between the two and you're appearing to jump down my throat for absolutely nothing.
So, I'm not jumping down your throat, actually the entire tone of my post was pretty tame, albeit defeating in nature.
I even made sure to give you the benefit of knowing how to form an opinion based off of multiple sources.
Your quote, however: "What is this tweet--from an obviously biased source--trying to convey?"
Remove the prepositional phrase, and you're left w/ "What is this tweet trying to convey?" An honest, straightforward question. What is the value add of the omitted prepositional phrase if not to cast aspersions against the source?
I'm not trying to engage in an argument, in fact, that was the entire point of my post. There's no point in it. There's almost never an actual conversation. Here we are, again, talking about the conversation around the conversation. It's all so "meta" at this point.
