I have been away for awhile. Following several pages on FB and weeding them out. Sad to say many of them have said they are Conservative, Christian or Libertarian, etc. When I see a post that just does not seem right I may question the validity of it. I did so on one called Conservative Women Rock. The attacks began right away from the Conservative Women (if that is what they were) and some of their followers. Others who questioned the post were also attacked. Not sure they were Conservative or if they were women. See – anyone can create a FB page, name it FROM GOD HIMSELF, and I can assure you someone idiot will see it and think it comes from God himself. There are some just that stupid.
Sadly there are those who believe that if it is on the internet – it must be true because you can not put it on the internet if it is NOT true. Who knew?
Anyway – keeping this one short. I have eliminated approx 5 or 6 pages so far that I used to follow. Why – because they post fake stories, misleading headlines and see downright lies. Would you read a paper or listen to a friend who constantly lied to you? I think not. And if you questioned them they got pissed and told you – prove my story is false. Journalism (I know these are just FB pages) has the responsibility to post truthful information, not post what they want and expect us to prove they are wrong.
Peace in the Vally of FB. OH well. Got to run for now. Have a great day.
