Calling out Labrat

Well, ZihauRx, you are quite right to chide me for my deliberate rudeness and use of insults. I'm sorry I allowed my anger to detract from my point.
I'm sure you understand there is a difference between questioning and defaming.
If Labrat has a specific question or questions let him ask.
If he has only more vague expressions of snotty contempt, let us hope someone who cares for him intervenes.

I certainly support healthy skepticism when it comes to the media - all media- but how does one rationally deal with a Trump, or, more to the issue, with a Fox News and the rest of the lunatic fringe? Are the O'Reillys, Hannitys and Limbaughs entitled to respectful "questioning", or should they be rejected, reviled and vilified out of hand?
At the risk of being accused by our resident smirkers of invoking Godwin's Law, should clear-thinking Germans have politely "questioned" Goebbels' pronouncements?
(For those who think: "We're not there yet", I hope you aren't just whistling past the graveyard.)
