The Left's Love Affair With Fake News
Chiquita is Singing the Blues
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, February 13, 2017. Our noisy friend, CihiquitaC Cicada is at the breakfast table this morning. She is a bit late today because she ran out early to buy earplugs and blindfolds. The rising epidemic of fake news is alarming and bad for her health. She needs the gear to help block out the lies. She's here now with tons of delicious French toast and jam, Please join us as soon as you can. We are hungry and Chiquita needs to vent.
The Fake News Epidemic
Trouble has doubled in America and its name is Fake News. The fact that this disgusting media blitz of lying has even been named is despicable in and of itself. There is nothing new about bad reporting. In the past when a journalist was caught manufacturing a story, a pink slip followed. These days the stories have multiplied and the liars get to keep their jobs. Once in a great while an apology is forthcoming, but mostly the fake journalists get to distribute their fake news and the gullible public believes what they are told. It's a very simple formula. Tell a lie, place it on social media and watch is spread like wildfire. Distinguishing the lie from the truth has now become something of an art form. The end result of all the lying is the creation of a generation unable to recognize the truth when they hear it, and frankly not that interested in sorting things out. We have produced millions of college students who show up to protest issues that they know nothing about. Getting out of class is the goal. Getting at the truth is just too much trouble. If they can get paid for their attendance, even better. Ah, life is good.
Operating Room In Use
An operation is ongoing in America, and the patient is the pubic. If someone wants to smear the administration, just create a false narrative, water and fertilize it and watch it grow. Pop gets emails from both the Democrats and the Republicans. She gave me access to her mail, and I was appalled by the thrust of the message from the unhinged left. Over and over again Pop was asked for money. The purpose of the push for donations was to fund an effort to uncover anything bad about President Trump in order to get him impeached. The man is hardly in office and the Dems want him out! The good news for them is that the findings no longer have to be factual. Think up a worst case scenario and let it loose out there in media land. The dumbing down of America began a long time ago, but it is finding a happy place to live right now. No matter where the public turns for information, there is a very strong likelihood that they will be getting manufactured stories rooted in nothing but the desire to twist the hearts and minds of Americans in seconds. It is virtually impossible to undo the damage once it is out there in cyberspace. If you are fond of lying, this is your decade. Ah, life is good.
Facing the Truth
With the rising epidemic upon us, it is time to take off the blindfolds, pull out the earplugs and face the truth. There have to be consequences for lying. The liars have to be rooted out, exposed and sent packing. If we don't address the situation, we will completely fall apart as a nation. How will we function when we don't know what's real? How will we improve our lives, if we don't know the root of a problem because the media wants to steal the storyline. I watched an excerpt from a mainstream (lame stream) media telling Americans ICE will be heading out, knocking on doors and arresting all illegal aliens. They are even giving out advice to those who are apt, they say, to get caught up in the carnage. Of course, none of this is happening. If ICE goes after anyone, it will be people who are here illegally, committing crimes and getting away with it all. You won't hear that on television or the radio, and you won't read about it if the fake journalists are not held accountable for creating and spreading fake news. This madness has to be stopped. We cannot rely on the news organizations already in existence to clean house and rout out the fakers. Now would be a great time to create new outlets with journalists who are actually trained to report the news without embellishment. When did it become okay to lie? When did it become okay to deceive and manipulate people? Congress is filled with people we elected to represent us. The end result is that the halls of Congress are filled with liars, too. Harry Reid smeared Mitt Romney. He later admitted he did, but in his twisted mind he believed it was okay. Nothing happened to Harry, as I recall. Elizabeth Warren became an America Indian when she thought it would help her. Nothing has happened to Pocahontas, as far as I can see. Hillary Clinton is probably the biggest liar of all time and she won the popular vote.
Now that I think about it, when you put all this together, the picture reminds me of the fall of the Roman empire. I wish I were kidding.
I'm Chiquita Cicada
And I'm here to say
I wish the liars would just go away!
