Fake News



While we enjoy frivolities and a plethora of oddities

What we read may be a bluff, yet can it be believable stuff?

What we read may be a niche, yet can it possibly be a glitch?

What we read may be a pun, yet can it be one and done?

What we read may be true, yet can it be misconstrued?

What we read can mislead, indeed.

  1. I love that Mark Twain quote, and I agree: anything you hear on the news is slanted one way or the other so badly that you need to read several sources and take an average to learn the truth. I’ve gotten to where I want to read the source documents themselves (e.g. the Congressional Record, the text of executive orders, similar documents from the state and local levels) and make up my own mind. Too many people are letting the journalists and the news media do their thinking for them anymore.


  2. Agree with MarkTwain’s quote of course…
    So , which is the worst of the two chances?
