2008: Jim Carrey, Jenny McCarthy, and Oprah Winfrey, uncritically - and without considering consequences - introduce middle America to the NewAge's anti-vaccine tropes.
This Big Think video by Tali Sharot says Facts Don't Win Fights, but TMR would say Facts Don't Win Fights when presented by women, more concerned about the crowd size at Donald Trump's Inauguration (and using NewAge phrasing like "your truth") than being free - or even trying to appear free - of any number of these markers for leftwing bias. No true Independent (AKA no "normal") is going to find Tali Sharot convincing, or trust her as a custodian for the presentation of Science. She, NewAge - and Big Think - are a problem.
Because, they all know, no one saying THAT gets to make a video.

4 Times Oprah Made The World Worse With Junk Science and paid no price - for harming "the world".
Deepak Chopra lambasts skeptics on Smart Talk Tonight long after it's been scientifically proven his incoherent ramblings make his listeners stupid. There's no mystery why Oprah - repeatedly - takes him on tour.
Joe Rogan Says Gay and Transgender People are ‘Most Vicious’ Champions of Cancel Culture Because ‘They’ve Been Bullied’ and Want Revenge, though - if you think about it - the Police have many, in their ranks, for the same reason, so there might be some "common ground" there.
No, Karen, We're Not Masking Again, says Glenn Reynolds, who once wanted to run black people down with his car.
Public Health Mandates Aren't Political, says Donna Brazile, who once lost her job because she cares about political integrity so much, she stole Presidential debate questions for Hillary Clinton.
Trumpian Politics Return to Amercia, says Robert Reich, who hasn't noticed Trump has only left the White House - while Bill Clinton is still a rapist.
THERE WILL BE BLOOD
"Did you think your song and dance, and your superstition, would help you, Eli?"
ONCE UPON A TIME,...IN HOLLYWOOD
"You are real, right?"
Remembering the most important civil rights hero most Americans have never heard of - because that's how this country does us - while bogusly insisting to have provided a good, and comprehensive, American education.
"These tech giants are more powerful than government officials.... take Donald Trump versus Mark Zuckerberg. Trump could be dis-elected, he could be sued, he can be impeached. And none of the above is true for Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, etc, no free speech rights against them, no due process rights against them."
TMR Buys Books From People Who Read Enough Science To Know The Sun Is Going To Die (And We Can't Be On Earth Selling Books Whenever That Happens)
It's not enough to read books: you have to know which books to read - and the smart ones do NOT endorse this position.
Society Promotes Everything Negative About The NewAge Experience (So These Intelligent Guys Are Only Seen Long After Your Life Has Already Been Destroyed)
I couldn't find this guy, anywhere, for the entire 20 years I was married to a NewAge loon. He was never on Oprah, or PBS, or any of the so-called "news" programs. Nobody reads him, worships him, or has ever mentioned his name. None of my friends know of him (as they know all the con artists). And he only shows up decades after I'm divorced - and, so, is of no help to me what-so-ever.
Just like everyone else.
