The media is not the problem. Lies are the problem.

Many times we see the truth and still deny it. We have to start calling a lie a lie. 

Sometimes we hear the truth and still deny it. We have to start calling a lie a lie. 

Opinions are just that. Everyone has their opinion and they are welcome to it. But, we have to start calling a lie a lie. Wether stupidity or just plain oneryness lies are killing a lot of people. I know it’s not nice to call someone a lier. However, minding your manners while someone spreads lies that cause death is no longer acceptable.

 

The media is telling the truth. Even Fox News personnel are vaccinated. Do not not keep silent when someone claims the media cannot be trusted.  They are lying.  The media can be trusted when they say vaccines save lives.

I think that the media can be trusted as far as hard news is concerned. The problem is that a lot of people take those talking head panel shows as news when they're really just opinions. Actual news doesn't have an opinion or viewpoint, it's "just the facts ma'am" as they say.

I don't mean to offend but replying to your post ONLY, not the responses.

 

There was a time I trusted "our" government; then something went sidewise.

 

There was a time I trusted "you"; then something went sidewise.

 

There was a time people like Charleston Hartfield tried to heal; then was struct down by an idiot...

 

How do we fix this?

Sorry, as to how do we fix it, we call the liers liers.

I will try and be responsive to your questions, if I understand. I think I understand but, as the wife often observes, sometimes I don’t.

 

The government is us. I know we are not all mean and cruel but there seem to be more than there used to be. I think what went sideways is we allowed inappropriate behavior from our leaders. 

As to me, I am far from perfect but I have been honest here. If I have not been honest please show me where. 

I spent my working life as a helper not a healer. However I was in close enough proximity to the healers that I know they are not represented by the liers.

Nice to see honest opinions! All of us that believe in decency need to stop this madness! Keep speaking the truth!

Can't say I disagree with you, except for one point.

 

When it comes to Fox News, they have several commentators that question vaccinating and yet, are vaccinated themselves, they also question masking, and yet, I believe masks are required in Fox studios, and they push alternative medicines, and yet don't use them themselves.

 

Due to these disparities, it is a media that cannot be trusted.

Point well taken. I guess where I am going lies should be called lies. Some of this stuff is so blatant and people are dying. You rightly point out hypocrisy at fox. They are not the only news outlet where hypocrisy has reared its ugly head. I admit they seem to support the crazies for advertising income more than most.

 

What I am talking about is outright falsehoods. There are breakthrough cases in hospitals but, 90 percent of Covid patients in hospitals are the unvaccinated. It is a fact. Lying about that fact has kept people from the vaccine. Nobody is magnetic. They are just not. Spoons don’t stick to me. It is a lie. The vaccinated do not glow in the dark or under a black light. It is a lie to claim the vaccinated glow. I know the nuts that make false claims are given a platform by news outlets. But, it is not the news it is us being unwilling to call a lier a lier. We are minding our manners so much the nuts are not being called nuts. In the meantime people are dying.
