Says Who?

NOVEMBER 15, 2022


Says Who?

11/13/22 05:35 PM

These days, it's quite difficult to determine who and what to believe. I'm amazed at politicians and so-called journalists alike, who pedal their stories with all sorts of objectives and I'm equally amazed at those who willingly consume and get behind those stories without the slightest idea of the truth or fallacy upon which any given story is based.

So, where should I go to discover the truth behind any given story these days? We can't even trust the fact-checkers. Even those with whom I would most often tend to agree get caught from time to time in stretching the truth or omitting facts to suit their purpose. Fortunately for them, stories grow old and are quickly forgotten and/or replaced with an even more shocking story.

Some folks want to be the first to break a story. Unfortunately for them, they also wind up taking a position on the story just by the nature of their report. And they may wind up regretting the taking of that position as things start to pan out in the story. That seems to occur with great frequency these days.

And then there are those stories behind which I suspect we'll never know the real truth. It will often remain someone's truth positioned to cover up what really happened. The recent news on Nancy Pelosi's husband comes to mind as a possibility for that one.

Either way, I'm shocked at how divided we are in this country and I'm particularly surprised at the level of support on each side. If voting outcomes tell the tale, we are about as equally divided as one could imagine.

How did we ever get here?
