Sometimes I wonder if facts really matter. Does the truth matter when we live in a world of lies? I watched several TV newscasts and just getting to an empirical version of the truth is a minefield. Fox, CNN, MSNBC, PBS NewsHour, RT, ABC, CBS, NBC, and so on. All purveyors of news with subtleties that aren’t always so subtle.
Breaking news is a joke. The term was once meaningful when a devastating event occurred. But now the term is used to attract attention even when the story isn’t something worth breaking.
