The media sells us sensational stories that might contain a small grain of truth. Some of those exaggerated stories are easy to recognize. Most of us can’t recognize the lies about honest gun owners.
We have dozens of news sources at our fingertips. Unfortunately, the major online sources twist the truth, but we are the ultimate lie detector.
After each mass murder, the news media shouts that attacks on our schools are a growing epidemic. Once we read past the headlines and we see that the news media is complicit in killing our kids.
That’s the theory of political relative relativity in action, proving the irrefutable existence of media bias, operating under the insufferable pretense of neutrality.
Judging by recent news reports, we should keep our children at home so they won’t be killed by a crazy kid with a gun at school. That isn’t true, and here are the facts.
It seems that more and more, information means something totally different to people with differing political positions, the other side appears to be living in an alternate reality.
Once the headlines have been absorbed, reinforced biases will make unquestioning voters receptive to politicians promising more disarmament legislation.
