    1. Talking in past tense “took on”,this is far from over,WSB became corrupted with corrupt mods,a new sub-editor was formed r/GME where some truly intelligent minds share their great work and investigations uncovering massive ongoing market manipulation.
      Robin hood is a scape goat,yes they did what they did but this is the tip of the iceberg and far worse goes on,if you don’t think there is manipulation in the market then you’re dumb.
      The main stream media is corrupt and biased,market watch even published an article saying GME had plummeted BEFORE it even happened!!! (Think about that).
      This video brushes over what a short sell is ,no one on WSB or more to the point r/GME thinks this is worthy of being “the story”…it’s not and it’s NOT OVER.
      The truth will come out.
