DON’T GET TAKEN IN! TIPS FOR ANALYZING NEWS SOURCES

These sites take pieces of accurate information and package it with other false or misleading “facts” (sometimes for the purposes of satire or comedy). AVOID WEBSITES THAT END IN “.COM.CO”. They are often fake versions of real news sources. ARE REPUTABLE NEWS SITES REPORTING THE STORY? There should typically be more than one source on a story. ODD DOMAIN NAMES…generally equals odd and rarely truthful news. LACK OF AUTHOR ATTRIBUTION…may signify that the news story is suspect and needs verification.

DOD Club Members in ACTION!

On Saturday, July 21, three local DOD and Moms Demand Action members drove to Orange County for the Road to Change town hall, organized by the March for Our Lives/Parkland survivors. Sharon Benoit, Jimmi Thomas and I piled into Jimmi’s SUV for the 2+ hour drive. It was well worth the drive and, if there is one near you, please go. The Website with information and other tour dates is: marchforourlives.com/tour. The teens have been on the road for 40+ days already.

Summer 2018 - Message from our Club President

Dear Democrats of the Desert members and friends, You and I are wildly frustrated, angry, upset, and justifiably frightened by news this week and recently from DC and our borders. What can we do as individuals and as a club ? What the heck can Democrats do ? I want you to know a little about what you have DONE. This year has been a super busy and well accomplished one for Democrats of the Desert. We worked hard to support and elect Democrat Manny Perez as 4th district supervisor for Riverside County. We helped Congressman Ruiz and Assemblyman Garcia win top spots by wide margins in the primary. And, we aided Joy Silver and DeniAntionette Mazingo, as they made the November ballot with ease.
