i personally cannot force myself into watching it all. managed a few of his more popular talks some months ago
Jesus Christ, that's 2 hours long, that's 2 hours too long for information that could probably be summed up in a single page....or even a Paragraph.

Here, I'll do it.

Comrade Putin is a former KGB guy right wing nationalist who got butthurt when the Cold War ended with the breakup of the USSR. He's had a grudge against the "West" and has wanted to remedy what he considers a wrong for years and rebuild a new Kleptocratic Authoritarian Russian Empire. So he's been sabre-rattling, trying to destabilize NATO and the west and finally invaded Ukraine.

Oh I forgot consquences. lots of people dying and horrible things going on in Ukraine that only Russian assholes think are a good thing. a strengthened NATO, sanctions on Russia, Comrade Putin and cronies. More instability in Eastern Europe because of Comrade Putins Sabre rattling about Russian Empire, economic insecurity for EVERYONE, Inflation, trade disruptions, and other economic goings on. Also China doing its own sabre rattling in the South China sea and about Taiwan.

There, much better and it didn't take 2 hours.

what do you mean by bias?
Bias is... so, Russian state media has a bias that only they are worth holding any other country on the planet, for example.

Usually it's not as extreme though. The Guardian from the UK has a bias towards the Left, but tend to be fairly reliable, because its not extreme. I believe the Times has a Right leaning, but again, not extreme [if someone can correct me, please do - it might be that I'm so used to US MSM that anything else seems reliable enough.

Basically, I try and look at the sources of my info to see if I can -find- what the bias is, so I can take it into account. Because bias seems linked to agenda.

I already finished the various Wordle games I had lined up and have nothing else to do.

Wait, I wasn't feeding anyone...
