This is worrying. It's pretty vague about what constituts disinformation and who the final say so falls to.

I really fail to see what the fuss is about with any of that. Is it something to do with his political views?

Using this as the US thread.

Keep hearing about juneteenth and thus far I've managed to avoid finding out what it is. I wonder how long before I find out without wanting to know

It's about emancipation, and it's old, very old. Increased consumption of US news media of various sorts means we're hearing about stuff recently that we didn't back in the days of RTE 1 and Network 2.

I saw someone say that any money made last holiday weekend in the US should be donated back into black charities. Such a skewed and ridiculous statement.

I haven't seen the lineup but it must be spectacularly bad if that's the case!
