Ok, so let me get this right:
-North Korea launches another missile yesterday.
-healthcare insurance is a joke and literally raping citizens of their money.
-States, ours (CT) included, are on the verge of bankruptcy
-pharmaceutical companies hold recipients hostage for grossly over priced prescription drugs.
-there is an opioid crisis in every town in the country.
-Wall Street does not reflect the real crisis on Main Street.
-tax cuts are on hold
-according to some the stock market is ready to take 25-50% reduction in value over the next 10 months.
-and let’s not forget we are still in a war in Afghanistan and with Isis.
Yeah CNN is someone I would turn to for news. Trumps tweets may be crude and somewhat distasteful BUT the media really is FAKE NEWS for the majority. Local TV news, which I can not watch, has turned into nothing but stories on what used to appear on bulletin boards, OR they are trying to ambulance chase. Print does NO, I MEAN NO, investigative journalism. CNN, MSNBS, CBS, ABC, NBC and sometimes FOX can not be trusted. AND ANYONE can author “news” on the internet. Hell even me!
CONCLUSION: The public is less informed and becoming dumber by the day. Not many seek out the truth, nor care to. As long as their bubble stays in tack “I don’t give a sh**!” is the general reaction. I always say the scales always balance, this balancing when it happens, societal, economics, or just plain interpersonal relationships with people is going to be better than any movie Hollywood can conjure up with a computer!
