Independent Political Propagandandists

Many people fail to see that independent media often plays the same game as traditional media. In many cases it's worse. Many of these people outright encourage hatred and ignorance to their followers. Their entire career is built off having viewers that agree with them, so it is financially important to keep your viewers in line with your brand of political activity. Common techniques include debating low hanging fruit (how many times have you seen these people debate kids and teens?), taking people out of context, and lying. If you watch any sort of political commentator on Twitch and YouTube you've likely fell into this trap.

The solution to this is to stop giving these people your money. Stop giving them views. Seek people who do not have any financial incentive, and people of diverse opinion. Keep an eye out for the things I've mentioned above.
