He Says She Says

The continual blaring of strong action words just numbs the senses.

The strong words to get your attention to headlines have been so overused that they have lost any real effect. Just pull yourself back and ask yourself what these people are really trying to say.

To go into articles and see that there is nothing more substantial than some anonymous assertions being used to positively blast someone is just foolish.

What is being passed off as informative news is nothing more substantial than backyard gossip.

all news is really opinions colored to make it more attractive to a certain clientel. Supposed facts are taken and twisted by a professional writer to sell to as many people as possible.

As what we accept as history is something researched and written by the winners, so too is the news written by the commercial entities that can profit by it. It has to look attractive to the interests or it will not sell and as a fact of life, it will not make ads sell.

Is there ba perfect solution to a perfect source of news?

Of course not! Opinionated people trying to bend others toward their opinion will always get in the way. People do not become highly paid reporters without exceptional word-smith abilities.

The line between the true truth and fiction will always be there. Can we see it though when the screaming lets up?
