People mostly know about these things because the media indeed covered them, they always cover these things.

Social media and certain sections of the media like tabloids and shitty bloggers are a problem, but the normal establishment media is allright with Taylor. Just go to any positive article about her and check the comments section, that's where you'll find the real culprits.

The problem is the culture, and the media sometimes reflects it. The internet is full of dumb, hateful people and some of them own or have jobs writing for shitty websites. This is only gonna get worse in the future.

A little example of what I'm getting at... when LWYMMD went #1 for a 3rd week and prevented Cardi B from getting her first #1, I saw people on Twitter that were upset at Taylor for discounting her single on iTunes and preventing a woman of color from going #1. People were, not for the first time, insinuating that Taylor was against people of color somehow.

Even if these users had read a shitty think piece that gave them this idea, there must be something deeply wrong to begin with if people are capable of stupidity of this magnitude. It's not like Cardi has a problem, she was so proud when she finally beat Taylor and Taylor was as classy as ever and sent her flowers. And the media covered that as well. It just doesn't register with hateful people, they see and hear what they want.

Some people are racist against her just for being white. It is so obvious to anyone outside of the West but apparently in the West you can't be racist against whites.

I'm guessing...

But, they (the media) aren't talking about how Taylor won. They're looking on the negative side of everything. And what could possibly be the bad side of buying your fan a home? So, they didn't say anything.

The media mostly complained about how she won't take one step further and tweet about the case lol

China has weaponized space to a degree that has alarmed the US Military. Defending the moon is within their reach that is if their house of cards on Earth doesn’t collapse first

This is the same sensationalist bullshit as the video since the US has far superior space capability, they just don't like not being the sole dominant power in space. And people from the West who don't fundamentally understand how China works have been doomsaying about Chinese collapse for 30+ years.
