Why There is No Such Thing As Fake News 1/4/2019

Does it seem like every day holds the fate of the world in its teeth?  When you wake up in the morning and start settling into your day, as that faint glimmer of  light spreads out before you, what are you thinking about?  Let us move beyond our simple daily needs, be it a shower, a cup of coffee, or an intense, partially orgasmic bowel movement  simultaneous with eight minutes playing on your phone, checking your email, catching up on the day’s news . . .

 

One of the chief topics we debate these days is not what is going on in the world, but if what we are being told is actually true.  We hear or see about the latest terrible incident to happen, and this evokes our guttural response–an emotional shriek of rage, pain, disgust, or maybe hilarity.  When we are confronted with the world as our media outlets choose to paint it, most of us, any longer, simply turn away.  It is not that we don’t believe such horrible things are happening, nor that bias coming from every which way does not impact our understanding.  We have just gotten to a place where we are no longer willing to accept that the world is what we have allowed it to become.

 

The term ‘fake news’ is bandied about far too often to have retained its once significant meaning.  When a culture of total doubt is the end result of so many different things happening, and an entertainment industry emerges from the wreckage of a once honorable goal of reporting what is happening in the world, it is not so much a ‘false reality’ that is created, but merely one of our own desires.  (For anyone near, in, or coming to New York City in the near future, I urge you to take the opportunity to see the brilliant revision of the film Network on Broadway, now starring Bryan Cranston https://www.broadway.com/shows/network/)

 

A lie isn’t false if we believe it.  Now if we really want to strip this statement down into its syllogistic elements, and put it to the mathematical challenge of logic, of course it cannot stand on its own.  But that’s just it, isn’t it?  No one is going to try so hard to unspool something as unforgiving as absolute truth.  Not only is it very hard to discern, or narrow down, but the result will always be both far too painful and completely unsatisfying.  And so we impose whatever doubt keeps us sane onto the world around us, and re-imagine things how we want them to be.

 

And of course none of us really invents a wonderland out of our versions of the truth.  We are too far gone for that, too frustrated and angry with what we will never be able control.  We hear all day long the viewpoints of people we are convinced are wrong.  It doesn’t even matter what they’re wrong about, really, any longer, because in a world of ‘fake news,’ falsehood can be discovered in anything.  There is a lie to every truth, and it is this horrible reality that invades us every morning, as we start following the latest scandal, whether celebrity, political or universal, and all these topics of gossip melt down into the same muddled crime.  We listen to some snide broadcaster paint their vision of something that happened in the most entertaining way possible (ratings, advertisers, profits, Boom!).  Each broadcaster is trying to latch onto a specific audience.  Again, none of them are lying, nor are they making things up.  Sometimes they are not even expressing their own opinions.  What is happening here is that the truth is being offered from a specific point of view, regardless of whether that perspective is that “truth isn’t true.”

 

It is wrong for us to so harshly blame the media for disrupting the world, or to accuse them of corruption on the basis of a shadowy political agenda.  No.  No.  It has absolutely nothing to do with that.  We exist within an entertainment culture.  We want to be amused.  The United States of America elected a game show host its president because he was far more interesting than the same bland, greedy politicians we have convinced ourselves have only ever been in it for themselves.  And, if nothing else, Donald Trump’s elevation should be considered one of the most significant signposts of what it is all of us have become.  Regardless of the horror, or the intense, sometimes irrational pride one may feel in Donald Trump, there is no time in American history that raw opinion has had a more significant impact on our reality.

 

This is why there is no such thing as ‘fake news.’  It isn’t that people are lying.  It isn’t even that everyone is self-serving and corrupt.  It is because we have allowed our world to become this partisan and biased, because we are so partisan and biased (and bias can take on any form–even bias against those who are biased).  There are no longer lies, those transparent falsehoods we often see on the news.  They are merely beliefs.  People believe what is being reported.  It is the fragmentation of fact that we have voted for.  Do not blame Donald Trump, or CNN, or FoxNews, or the Main Stream Media, or far-right wing conspiracy radio.  Blame ourselves.  It is what we have been asking for.  We are all subjects for my own variation on Editorial History . . .

  1. 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐌𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝐓𝐫𝐢𝐛𝐮𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐠𝐮𝐧! SOON, we will see just how fake the news has become. MANY of us already know because we research everything and share our information with viable links.

    65k+ Indictments for Military Tribunals on Treason, Pedophilia, etc., most in government IS WHY THE GUILTY & THEIR MSM REPORTING BUDDIES ARE HAVING TANTRUMS FROM HELL & BLAME TRUMP FOR THEIR SINS.

    TRUMP HAS THE CORRUPTED ONES BY THE BALLS!!!

    Hellary’s emails have been found in another inbox. The Russian Collusion is ALL HERS.

    Obamanation’s secret kiddie porn stash was found and confiscated by the FBI. This evidence will be added to the current piles of charges against this con artist.

    #TrumpProphesy has been 💯% ACCURATE, by Kim Clement (RIP) 2007 – 2016, Mark Taylor from 2011 to current, and over a dozen more Prophets around the world are successfully prophesying!

    THIS IS GOD, people!!!! The LORD GOD of ALL Creation is FOR America! GOD is showing us proof of His existence so that people will repent and be baptized, and so that GOD can show you The Truth.

    “Without faith, it is impossible to please GOD.” – Hebrews 11:6

    Because, all has been fulfilled before the LORD rescues His children, except for the Third Temple being built in Israel, when the antichrist takes the seat, and he will attempt to kill every Christian and many innocents, for about 3 1/2 years.

    Where, O Death, is Your Victory?
    “…51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must be clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.…” – 1 Corinthians 15:51-53

    The last trump? This is the only time “trump” was used in the scriptures! And, those of us that know how GOD works, nothing is secret to His people. The LORD shows us and tells us what we need to know. So, if POTUS is the last trump, and we’ve been told that DJT will win the 2020 elections too, then DJT is probably the last trump. Some even believe that DJT will be the last POTUS ever. That is how close we are to the antichrist being revealed.

    “Then the beast was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them, and it was given authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. And all who dwell on the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.…” – Revelation 13:7-8

    Only GOD can save us from the terrible fate that is about to happen in this world.

    ACTS 2:38-41 … https://biblehub.com/kjv/acts/2.htm
    “Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

    And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.

    So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.”

    GOD is Love and His children BECOME Love, by the help of HIS Holy Spirit we are One Loving Family of GOD, as we are saved by our LORD and Savior Jesus who died on the cross for ALL SINS, and JESUS LIVES, and He walks with us, working in us and through us, forever and ever! Amen
