There is no longer a conscious responsibility in reporting the “Truth.”
Even if we practice Free Speech because we live in a country that allows us Freedom of Expression, where are the Facts?
As in any debate, we learn to respect one’s ideal to “Agree to Disagree.” We don’t have to like it, but we must respect it even if the opinion goes against our own.
But what happens when those opinions are filled with outright lies? Do we police the liars and point our their falsehoods, or, is the damage of their words already done?
Without objectivity to know the difference, many believe it because its in black and white. Even Donald Trump said, “If its on the Internet, it must be true!”
This is where America got it wrong. This is where Fake News somehow became Fact; getting the public to believe the possibility of Truth is somehow false, and if anyone says otherwise, they’re the one’s Guilty of Fake News.
When families are overwhelmed with survival and day-to-day living, they pay little to No attention to the happenings in Washington, not realizing how important it is to continue to fight against the Republic for which it stands. We are No longer ‘One Nation Under God,’ but fed a bunch of Rich ideologies that will somehow be the savior to all our ills… Republicans will save us from the Evil Democrats that morally bankrupt society (Fake News), but a false hope to cling to as truth provides hopefulness that there is something better.
Well, Hope is Dead — It Died when this Tax Scam was pushed through as the saving grace to our economy, only to see a new recession by 2019.
If Republicans were as ‘gun-ho’ about Outsourcing as they were about this bonanza give-away to the rich, maybe the middle-class could actually “move on up!”
Can’t have that — Because it’s all about the Survival of The Fittest!
I just wish that our News Media were a little more responsible in unbiased information reporting. As citizens, we at least deserve that much.
