I sure do miss Walter Cronkite. They don’t make them like they used to.
I hear so many promote their news sources as the only truth. I’m here to tell you that we need to research stories. We see videos edited to fit the agenda of the source. We see major news conglomerates touting their opinions and bias and parading them as fact.
Now we are being force fed one agenda on many social media sites. We are being told what to think. worse than that, we are being told lies are truth and truth are lies.
So, how much is a soul worth I ask? When you sell out to political parties you are indeed selling your soul. You endanger our right to truth and our freedom of speech and thought. You give powerful self-serving individuals more power over the people.
Now there’s some reporters that are in it to get that once in a lifetime story to make their career. Some spouting their opinion instead of fact. Then there are the most dangerous ones of all. The ones that are complicit in covering up truth.
I research everything I post. I don’t just watch one side, I watch everything I can find on a story. Realizing the truth lies somewhere in between. We shouldn’t let loyalties to news conglomerates sway us. We can no longer just sit and take their word for anything. We must be pro-active and seek truth.
And that’s the way it is. I sure do miss Walter Conkite.
