Fake News

145966-Diy-Stars-Created-With-Newspaper

While we appreciate frivolities

also, a plenty of peculiarities

What we read might be cushioned,

be that as it may, credible stuff?

What we read some fakery,

or conceivably a glitch?

What we read a play on words,

however one and done?

What we perused good ‘ol fashioned,

however confused?

What we read can misdirect,

truly surely.

    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.

      I would say not reading is the worst of the two chances. If we read it, we have the option to form our own opinion.

        And so would I, of course…

        (….But what if the only source I read is completely fake ….and so I
        can’t I form my opinion?….)

        Sure, one can form their own opinion. We don’t have to rely on what others say, whether true or false to form an opinion or make a decision – IMHO
