      Never watch/read ANY news/opinion? You pay an internet or cable bill for that.

        I ain't shelling out good money for HBO. I wouldn't watch it, waste of $ for me.

        Last "yapper" I watched regularly was Johnny Carson.

        Nowhere did I mention reading.

          I see your point (but yappers are yapping in print, since print is merely yapping too.)
          I'm addicted to Colbert. Oliver is TOO much sometimes - he has the arrested development of a 13-year-old boy, lots of scatology.

            I am pretty selective in my reading, too, avoiding yappers if at all possible. Yapper being defined as someone who ultimately is looking to entertain rather than calmly inform.

              i'd never use the word "calmly" when speaking of John Oliver. But he often does inform, and I'm a big fan.

                He's usually pontificating, which, being a Brit yelling at American, could go very badly, but he's the most self-deprecating guy on TV, often making himself the butt of jokes (many on his appearance).

                • Seattle woman, 90, walks 6 miles through snow for vaccine

                  A rare winter storm that dumped a foot of snow on Seattle couldn’t keep a 90-year-old woman from her first appointment for the coronavirus vaccine.

                    Sounds like she could beat the crap out of covid, with or without the vaccine . . .

                    • Four people in Oregon tested positive for Covid, at least 2 weeks after receiving the 2nd dose of the vaccine. But their cases are all mild or asymptomatic.

                              I wonder how old she was when the picture was taken.

                                A bit more on this story which is getting a lot of airplay particularly after DeSantis' comments and this revelation:
