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.

It is sad, this leads to an escalation of lawlessness and chaos.
Such an incredibly wise post. The fact that there are seemingly no boundaries, especially as they relate to slander, libel, and tangentally related acts, in the media, courtroom, and everyday life is both a travesty and tragedy. It truly makes my heart ache.

I AGREE POST ALERTS SHOULD BE VERIFIED. ARLIN, THIS IS AN EXCELLENT CONTRIBUTION YOU HAVE MADE. NEWS SHOULD EQUAL THE TRUTH AND NOTHING ELSE; IF OTHERWISE, IT IS FICTION, AND FICTION IS NOT WE NEED TO FOCUS ON, WE NEED TO FOCUS ON WHAT IS REAL AND OUR DAILY LIVES. ANYONE WHO POSTS ALERTS WITHOUT VERIFICATION IS A WASTE. MEANWHILE:
I read the link you left……..Satanists! Think about this; one of the reasons you wouldn’t hear about Israeli espionage in the U.S. is because most of the main stream media is owned by Jews.
MAY BE TRUE; HOWEVER, GLOBALLY THEY HAVE MANY GENTILE FOLLOWERS. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE IS NO INDIVIDUALISM, IT IS THE COLLECTIVE THAT THE GLOBAL ELITE CABAL WORK THROUGH. SOONER OR LATER EVERY MAN AND WOMAN STANDS ON THEIR OWN TWO FEET TO SEPARATE THE EVIL FROM THE GOOD, AND ESCAPES THE NARRATIVE FROM WHICH THEY WERE GIVEN. THE WORLD IS ON A COLLISION COURSE COMBINED WITH ALL THESE COLLECTIVE GROUPS.
I really couldn’t agree more. And it’s gotten so bad on the internet, that the “mainstream media” is doing it now on television…hence the “fake news” Trump talks about. People used to check sources before reporting. Now, they realize there isn’t any downside to being first but wrong, so they go ahead and do it. We’ve become so into our “15 minutes of fame” that’s all we search for instead of searching for the truth! GREAT POST!
Problem is, we, the bloggers, are the “little guys”, and have no means to in depth check everything, so we go with people we trust.
The screwy reports such as UFOs or Elvis, are outright off the wall, but there are numerous things that are deliberately covered up, or twisted, or false, and we, the bloggers lack any real way to make a determination.
My personal view is that there are items meant to divert attention from the real mess, somewhere else. Interview criminals, or interrogate criminals, they will throw so much stuff out into left field. What is valid/invalid, and what points to something else that either we do not know of, or have been knocking out brains out looking for, and the perp spits it out like nothing. Then, how much time and footwork is necessary, as blogging, we are at a total loss for both, time and footwork.
