I’ve quit watching most mainstream “news” media and I get most of my news straight from a news feed and a podcast that deconstructs media coverage. I’ve found it very liberating and I want you to know why that is important.
I watch a lot of people arguing on Facebook and in general about the current state of “whatever”, the politics of “I couldn’t care less”, and economics of “some grossly misreported system”. Here is what I have to say to all of you people that allow yourself to be either whipped into a frenzy or placated by the mainstream media: A lot of your facts are wrong because you are being lied to or manipulated.
This should matter to you people because even the smartest and most wise person in the world will make the wrong decisions when he or she has the wrong facts. That is all.
