Two things on sources

To the editor:

1. The following appeared in comments reacting to my letter of Nov. 12, 2020.

Overall, we rate Conservapedia Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of propaganda and conspiracies as well as outright false information. This is not a credible source on any level or by any known criteria.

There were no quotation marks, and no source was given.

Upon recently discovering that exact statement on Media Bias/Fact Check, and being prompted to look further, I became aware of Just Facts and Just Facts Daily, and in particular of James D. Agresti’s article, “Media Bias Fact Check: Incompetent or Dishonest?”, and his video, “Beware of the Fact Checkers.” Here is one statement from the article: “In sum, more than enough evidence is presented above and below to show that Media Bias Fact Check cannot be taken seriously.”

2. Curtis Bowers spoke at South Central College in North Mankato on July 13, 2012. In the Q and A session, a professor at that college praised the accuracy of Bowers’s film, Agenda – Grinding America Down. He then professed himself an atheist and Marxist and one who had as his purpose to cause students to forsake their religious and moral values, i.e., to carry out the agenda Bowers described. He noted the average age of the crowd, and predicted that soon our generation would be gone and victory would be theirs. Bowers is perhaps referring to this incident at the 8-minute mark of Agenda II – Masters of Deceit.
