2022 has been a wild year by all accounts.

The January 6 Select Committee held televised hearings and reminded the nation that MAGA cultists and Trump tried to overthrow the US government.

The Biden administration managed to pass excellent legislation, (The Inflation Reduction Act), when Joe Manchin became a Democrat again which targeted climate change, infrastructural, health care, manufacturing and finally allowing Medicare to renegotiate better drug prices for seniors.

What should have been a "red wave" election became a drip as the Democratic party retained the power of the Senate and did much better in the House.

Trump is being investigated on multiple fronts.

MAGA still claims when they lose elections, it's because of fraud. They are not going away. Liars gotta lie. been covering it every step of the way.

Last year I wrote, "As soon as Biden was sworn in, with no warning, Facebook devastated our traffic, threatened to de-list our page, and to this day will only allow us to PAY to promote our page on their service. Because most site visitors come here via Facebook or Twitter, we lost over half of our daily visitors."

After jailing us for over 430 days, and several lawyer letters later, Facebook finally unlocked C&L's Facebook. But the damage was done.

And now right-wing troll Elon Musk has taken over Twitter. Progressive voices like ours are once again threatened and coralled.

While Musk reinstates Roger Stone, his company refuses to un-ban C&L's own Conover for bogus reasons. Free speech, my ass.

Google, Twitter, and almost every other social media outlet and news app continually rejigger their algorithms to give aid and comfort to wingnuts, crooks, liars, anti-Semites, and white supremacists.

Guess what types of websites are left in the dust? Progressive websites. Honest news and opinion sites like Crooks and Liars struggle to make ends meet.

There's a reason we've been around for 18 years, and it's not because we have the Mercers or Kochs to support us. We haven't received millions of dollars like Breitbart has to promote right-wing propaganda.
