What Really Happened

As the saying goes, "buyer beware". We cannot sit around lazily expecting everything to work right for us. Sure, the toaster toasts, the refrigerator keeps things frigged, zippers work properly time after time. So many things work as promised, it's easy to expect everything to do the same. But media is affected by personal perspective, and perspective can be fooled - that is unless people keep their guard up. And it's important to know that the below scenario isn't always created on purpose, sometimes distortions just happen. And sometimes the mistake is not in the media, but in our own heads and in the way we process information. Be vigilant then, testing, and retesting the validity of everything you experience.

  1. I agree with your post. Sensationalism sells. Once we quit buying it the media will start reporting the good things. Money was raised here so a widow escaped foreclosure. The media covered it pretty well.

    I do wonder if some type of peer pressure could be formed by the media. If everyone had the perception that all of their friends were doing nice things, then maybe the world would be a better place.
