Chicken Little and the Media
Do you remember the children’s story about Chicken Little?
Chicken Little likes to walk in the woods. She likes to look at the trees. She likes to smell the flowers. She likes to listen to the birds singing.
One day while she is walking an acorn falls from a tree, and hits the top of her little head.
- My, oh, my, the sky is falling. I must run and tell the lion about it, - says Chicken Little and begins to run.
She runs and runs. By and by she meets the hen.
- Where are you going? - asks the hen.
- Oh, Henny Penny, the sky is falling and I am going to the lion to tell him about it.
- How do you know it? - asks Henny Penny.
- It hit me on the head, so I know it must be so, - says Chicken Little.
- Let me go with you! - says Henny Penny. - Run, run.
We were taught as children that if you tell too many stories or believe whatever is repeated many times that people might tend to not believe you.
Well I ask you this question.
Has the Main Stream Manipulative News told too many stories, have they finally overplayed their hand with many of the American people?
I believe they have and if so how are we to believe what they are saying when in fact there might be some truth to it.
That is the problem with the media’s all-out attack on the Trump Administration and their want and only desire to bring down the President.
This attack is unprecedented, I do not believe we have ever seen this in our country. Sure most of the media is left to extremely left and we have seen for decades how they manipulate not only what they choose to cover but also the manner in which they cover it.
But we have never seen an all-out attack like this.
And that brings me back to the point of this article and that is when someone or some group clear motive is to destroy someone or what that person or group of people is trying to do then can you trust them.
When every day we are hit with a barrage of “news” stories about the most inconsequential things to news stories and I emphasis stories that may be of consequence how are we to believe any of them.
How many news stories that begin with un-named sources or anonymous sources can you believe, knowing the motive of the people reporting on information from un-named or anonymous sources?
Is it wrong for us to distrust people who have such clear motives and in many cases their admitted desire to bring down this President?
Is it wrong for us to distrust people and organizations that act like Chicken Little and tell us daily how the world is ending because of the President and some in the Republican Party?
Because we hear it repeatedly from these clearly motivated news organizations “so it must be so”?
No, it is the fault of most of the “news” organizations as well as the politicians that we do not believe you, it is not our fault.
