Too many social media websites are posting NEWS ALERTS without any confirmation or verification, and often no evidence or witnesses. They post these stories as factual. They want to be the first to a story, ANY story, so confirmation isn’t important, truth isn’t important. They know others will re-post (many of us guilty of that, when the story seems to have so many details presented, it must be true; but too often is not) and bang its viral. When no one can disprove, especially right away, the story must be true, right? Wrong! It may take several days to contradict, by then the story is ASSumed to be true.
The danger here and its a problem now, a growing problem that only benefits criminals and the corrupt; put out as much bullshit related to a current issue or investigation (like Gowdy on Clinton/Foundation); smear it up so bad that it will always be a muddy issue that can never be cleared up, not even with actual facts. Now it becomes difficult and sometimes impossible to differentiate fact from fiction. Witnesses are no longer trustworthy……stories contradict, and other fake witnesses see something else.
Anything and everything is now accepted as truth (fake truth, fake news). There is no such thing as a liar on the Main Stream Media. If they say it, it must be true. I WANT this to be a true story has become a story today; after all the ignorant general public has no way to disprove. Say it, it makes it so…………This is one huge reason how people like Bill and Hillary Clinton have survived. They have a cast of characters around them, that muddies everything……… Throw a ton of fiction in……smear it around, now even the truth can not be confirmed to be true. It really is criminal genius.
