I no longer watch Comedy Central, due to its provincial political and social views.  One particular "Show" portrays general information in an  illusory manner, in efforts to leverage  the outcome of  elections and political landscapes.  To further my view, and to clarify, I do not watch or listen to any "news" agencies benefiting either faction.  I read information and discern what is fact and what is Flub of my own accord.

 

 

 

illusory- deceptive, false

 leverage - Influence

discern - to separate

accord -  to bring into agreement
