"Morning Joe" derives its reporting from NBC News and the other clip is from CBS News. Respected News outlets. There are also other similar clips from The Washington Post, The Guardian, and so on.

Jacob Soberoff, the journalist in the MSNBC footage, has lived and breathed this story from the beginning and is well-respected.
Ah, I see you're a professional comedian! My sides just about split from laughter after reading this.

There are two subjects liable to fuel passionate debate - one is politics, the other is religion, so I look forward to a future E.P on that topic! Neil is probably laughing his socks off at the irony of fans furiously arguing about the political content and acting like the very keyboard warriors he wrote about.
They have already written "It's a Sin" and "Fugitive".

As I have said elsewhere, at least the songs are provocative... I doubt a Groovy EP would have even ellicited a murmur.

Why would he be laughing? I think he'd be glad that the music he and Chris have produced has caused discussion and spirited debate. Better to have people talking about the content of the song and its message than going, "Ooo, yeah, and that part where the music did this and that....ah...spectacular!" Not everyone here is going to have the same views and while we don't, at least it's the music that brings us together (or in the case, divides us, but there you go).

For an EP like this,and the surprise of the release,there are fantastic iTunes Charts positions.

UK 2 Germany 3 Sweden 2 .......
How will this translate into 'actual' charts?

I'm an old fart and not up-to-speed on what is and isn't counted these days.

If Agenda charts, will be it be on the album or singles chart?

If the latter, isn't it just singular tracks that are counted? If do, will the 'vote' for Agenda be diminished because it will be split four ways?

Elysium did even better on iTunes but it still tanked big time.

Or intolerance and racism, as it is known in old currency.

I am sure everyone here is overbrimming with compassion, empathy and informed, considered intelligence.

The stuff AliG spews here is racist shit in its purest form. It doesn't make it right if some dems in the USA do it too.

Those of you doing the pointless internet shouty thing, up to almost parody standard, do you want to perhaps set up another thread? You’ve ruined this one and the way you’ve started sniping at each other is sooo boring and predictable. Maybe go to the off topic section?
Heaven is possible,

Sorry... If I see someone advocating something that is prejudicial and objectionable, I will challenge it.

Otherwise, these things tend to fester.
