Do you care what happens in Washington? Or around the world? Or in your backyard? You should. It. Matters.

The times we live in are. not. normal. Our ? republic ? is ? under ? attack. Also, though, you have to look out for fake news coming from the fake news industrial complex.

We at the Velvet Hamster are prepared to keep you informed. We rely on a minimal amount of Russian bots as sources, and give most of our stories a quick read through before publishing. We do it ? to ? defend democracy, which could die literally at any moment if we’re not careful and you’re not reading our stories.

We take the news srsly. So should you.
