    ....while directing hate to other certain groups of people.

    To be on the safe side, any long term cold below freezing will start to affect the bleach once you get in to the 18-20 degree range (Fahrenheit).

    If I leave bleach outdoors in winter, will it freeze?

    Exactly. I always take everything I see in the media with a grain of salt. There is likely some nugget of truth. But it appears that furthering agenda is always more important than accurately sharing news.

    IMO media outlets are just as divided as the country. I think it’s a good advice not to live in one media (or social media) bubble. Read a lot, fact check and do not cease thinking for yourself.

    Please don't paint with such a broad brush and conflate cable entertainment news and opinion sites with disciplined journalism. We are blessed in this country with a free press and journalism professionals who excel in their field.

    Was just thinking, can you imagine the amount of hate mail Jussie Smollett will actually get now all of this has happened?

    Since he isn’t the one that called LE will he be charged with reporting a fake hate crime.?

    I asked before and don;t think I saw an answer- exactly HOW did the media get this story to begin with? WHO went to them?

    Which story? I believe it was the producer of Empire who posted a picture of Jussie in the hospital if you mean how this first made the news.

    I believe the answer is "whomever usually talks to TMZ and however they get their information", as first reports seemed to come from them (willing to be corrected on this if someone knows better). They could listen to police scanners, or have someone local who does so, or maybe an anonymous tip/leak.
