News has evolved from word of mouth, to newspapers, to Radio, to TV, the internet and social media. Somewhere along the way, we have been conditioned to not believe any of these sources. The term “Fake News” is relatively new and was hijacked then adulterated by Donald Trump. It was initially used to identify obviously false information. It was not designed to cast doubt on all news. The only way to dismiss all sources of news is to be present yourself at every event world wide and that of course is impossible. So at some level, you have to believe some of the news you are exposed to. Just proceed cautiously and trust but verify. Instead we are asked to believe the word of President Trump, a pathological liar, and Fox News only. This Blog will focus only on TV News for now. Here are some names in TV news that were trusted giants in their industry: Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, Peter Jennings, Tom Brokaw. Some of you are too young to remember these men, but you have to understand there are still some news broadcasters that maintain their integrity. Of course, occasional errors are made in TV news reporting, but a fair and balanced News agency will make the necessary corrections as soon as possible.

Watch more than one news source then compare each. Usually if they all agree, the story is probably reliable. If one source disagrees with the majority, the majority is usually right. Just don’t forget to trust but verify. That’s where facts come in. Federal websites and State websites are usually a reliable source of information and facts. Remember, people are entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. Armed with facts, you don’t have to guess if a story is true or fake. Treat News like the Constitution treats indicted criminals, innocent until proven guilty. Believing that all news is fake just proves you are lazy, narrow minded, and have a simple mind. America you have plenty of brain cells. Don’t waste them.

President Trump has been downplaying the severity of the COVID-19 virus for months. He was even mocking Joe Biden for wearing a mask even though the experts stated that the simple act of wearing a mask could reduce the chance of getting the virus. The bottom line is, President Trump could have probably avoided his exposure. I do hope he does not get seriously ill, but he does have significant risk factors regarding age and being over weight.

This one event sums up who President Trump is and how his reelection is truly a CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER for the United States and the Constitution. Trump is simply a con artist, liar, and an unempathetic self serving ego maniac who suffers from delusions of grandeur. During the first debate, Trump was clearly out of control. He was like a rabid dog, attacking Joe Biden and Chris Wallace, the moderator of the debate. Between his debate performance and him being positive for Covid-19, you simply can’t trust anything he says and now you know he can wildly lose control of his emotions. Chris Wallace had to constantly remind him to allow him to ask his questions and allow Joe Biden to answer his questions without interruptions. Imagine Trump going into a blind rage during a nuclear crisis. If he can do that on a debate stage, he can certainly do that on the world stage.

The question is, did you listen to Trump or the science and medical experts regarding the virus. Trump said the virus was not a big deal, but the experts said take simple precautions like wear a mask. So who did you listen to? Now ask yourself, do you have family or friends who got sick or died? If you listened to Trump, you backed the wrong horse and the chickens have come home to roost. This sums up the Trump Presidency. I hope these recent events will guide you to make the best decision you can possibly make in the voting booth. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.
