Excellent array of stories. Please please do this on a regular basis !!

This was really good.

The medic that was murdered by Israel was plastered all over my streams from those i follow, but I didnt even really see any major news organizations cover the story... and if they did cover it, they only shared 1 or 2 articles and didnt expand on the story... they're just after the trends and money, not honest journalism.

Great content.. Totally sickening that most of America doesn't know or care about any of it.
