Leaked News – Random Thoughts

Leaked news is always leaked for a reason.

Usually these reasons are self-serving and invariably either incomplete or just plain wrong.

There is something to be said for forcing a reaction, but really can you trust it, mostly this news is released by one organisation and cannot be independently checked.

Fake News – Random Thoughts

Fake News, despite all the fuss, is not a recent phenomenon.

In my day, it was more commonly known as propaganda.

For as long as I can remember, reporting of fake or false news has been popular, including gain for political reasons, to make money or sway popular opinion.

Many years ago, I was taught in school to question everything and not believe anything without a balanced view (a number of sources).

Do your research on the subjects that matter to you.

News – Random Thoughts

Reporting the news has changed a lot over the many years that I have watched/listened.

Whatever happened to reporting the facts without embellishing them or inserting a bias which could be political, monitory or personal agenda?

I know that listening to just the facts can be difficult to do without any sensationalism however this is necessary to get the real story (which hopefully has been confirmed from more than 1 source).
