What is being passed off as “NEWS” today would have been considered “Yellow Journalism” some years ago. There were ‘rags’ available at the checkout counter of grocery stores, the most notorious was “The Grit”. In it’s hey day, you would find all about someone’s problems. Slander and Libel suits ended its publication. The SINister minister is winning the information race. The talking heads are in a spin-zone as they report innuendo and editorialize, regardless of fact. And we believe it all.
I grew up in a home with parents who loved and inspired me. I had a sense of integrity and knew the difference of right-and-wrong. I also knew it best to be truthful. That knowledge carried over into my news reporting days. I would have never shared news that was lacking in factual investigation and precision of truth.
How unfortunate for real journalistic integrity. How disgusting it all is to those with discernment and a knowledge of Truth! It is a terrible thing to call what is shared by talking-heads, to be ‘news’. It is more in line with confusion and news reporting of garbage. Shame, shame!
And that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates. AMEN
