I like Bill and there is not one person on Earth that I just agree with 100% and my mind changes a lot to.
Twitch like any entertainment is the same waste of time.
His show has some educational value, but it can be looked at by many as a waste of time.
Fiction based movies his employer runs... all a waste of time.
So yeah he's right, then again he works for a company where most of it is a waste of time.
We don't live in a 100% production world and I think most are happy with that.

I agree that it's become an echo chamber, but I don't think that was Bill's choice. He's been having a harder and harder time getting mainstream conservatives on his show since Trump took over the party. Primarily because the Republicans have moved so far into looneyvile that they're unable to actually have any sort of political conversation anymore without outright fabrication and lying, and they know Bill won't allow that on his show. Honest conversation is all down-side for mainstream Republicans, so they won't come on the show. That just leaves the "RINO"s, who tend to side with the Democrats these days more than their own party.
You mean people who appreciate the Bill of Rights? The Constitution as a whole? Freedom? Free speech? Removing censorship? Not entertaining every stupid woke culture idea? Wow.. scary thoughts!

Eesh, Yahoo and AOL finally get out from under epically awful and disastrous Verizon.....and get bought by a dodgy private equity firm.

Bill Maher is a caricature of his formerly funny self at this point. I'm surprised HBO still wants him around.
