I hear you there. I've had a ban on newspapers in the house for over a decade, I just don't want left or right wing propaganda in the house.
Politics is bs, the media's bs. Unfortunately politics affects us all so I can't escape it completely and to peak into the ivory towers of government I have to read some news online at least. But I take it all with buckets of salt.
What you describe doesn't surprise me though, politicians say one thing and do another, you can generally tell when a politician is telling a lie because his lips are moving.
Our fearless leader in my own country is no different, he issues a load of rules around Covid-19 then he and his mates ignore it to do what they want. They also say it's safe for schools to return but not for parliament, nice to see which sections of society they want to protect.
