I feel like media -traditional or new- is flawed by design.
They can't tell you their sources and you should believe them for no good reason.
In their world, your attention is their currency.
Whatever grabs your attention, grabs theirs.
They have a vested interest in creating panic.
They've convinced you that the world is going to hell.
That everything is get worse than ever.
They promote a religion of doom and gloom.
I'm seen as a heretic for saying the world is getting better.
So if millions of people get lifted out of poverty every year.
They point out to crime rising in a city you've never heard of.
If literacy goes way up.
They'll point to a school shooting in a country you don't live in.
If water and electricity reaches more people.
They'll point to celebrity scandals you don't care about.
just my thoughts....
