My wife is fond of the play "Newsies". There's a part in it where one of the editors alludes to the fact (and I'm paraphrasing) that whoever reports the news can control the narrative of world events
ABC News Misrepresents the Numbers on Gun Deaths
Instead of reporting the hard facts, ABC news distorts the facts and offers dishonest analysis on the cause of children dying by gun shot. To be sure, any death is terrible. But ABC News would have the viewer believe that small children were dying by the hundreds every week due to guns. Because "guns"!
We are at a dangerous time in history where the truth is being drowned out in a sea of misinformation. Savvy people will need to start looking else where for their news and even then must take it with a grain of salt. Look behind the numbers. Look behind the studies. And, most importantly, think for yourself.
