For starters, there s the many claims made about division in America. While there is no doubt that America is divided, the extent to which this is true is greatly overstated in the article. The idea that, to quote the letter, There is no longer any common ground on any political or social issue, is absurd. There absolutely remains issues where America is mostly united such as those surrounding coronavirus, where 73% of Americans agree testing is required for Americans to return to work and 79% believe a vaccine to be important in reopening businesses and resuming activities in their area. Furthermore, the writer of the article makes the brash claim that liberals are solely to blame for the division of America. The largest problem with this is that the author uses no data, statistics, or evidence to back up this statement. He is not stating a fact, only a belief, and while there s certainly an element of truth to the idea that liberals have had some part in furthering the partisan nature of American politics, this letter does nothing to support the argument. The comparison to 1900s Russia is also confusing, as the left undoubtedly does not have a stranglehold on the media. Despite what President Trump might claim, the majority of American news networks are quite moderate in their reporting (a research article entitled There is no liberal media bias in which news stories political journalists choose to cover delves deeper into this), and while some, such as CNN, are noticeably left leaning, there is an equal amount of right leaning news broadcasters who provide a balance in the media landscape.

As with any new video resolution technology, we are currently in a chicken or the egg situation with there being no 8K content despite Samsung having unveiled its Q900R QLED 8K TVs. Broadcasters and movie makers don 't want to produce content in 8K resolution until there are enough consumers with TVs to support it. Samsung's answer to that dilemma is to integrate 8K upscaling so the shows you already watch can take advantage of the tech until we have native 8K programming in the future.Samsung is offering the Q900R QLED TV series in four "ultra large" sizes including 65 , 75 , 82 , and 85 inches. Samsung is integrating 8K ready features including Real 8K Resolution, Q HDR 8K, and Quantum Processor 8K. All that fancy tech is "created to bring 8K quality images to life" says Samsung. Other specs of the TV include a very impressive 4,000 nit peak brightness rating. Samsung says that is a standard met by most film studios. Samsung's Q HDR 8K feature offers HDR 10 tech that optimizes brightness levels to produce pristine colors and images. Samsung's 8K AI Upscaling is proprietary technology that uses artificial intelligence to ensure that contents scales reliably to 8K resolution no matter the source quality or format.
