I have a very good friend who was caught up in a very public debate this year. I won’t go into details as the topic is not important. What is important though is she showed me articles written in mainstream media, about her and her actions, that were 100% fictitious. Not even close. Not even a misrepresentation. Just made up crap. It nearly killed her - literally. She was hospitalised and only just pulled through.
My point is this: Hooper, Crawley, Ritchie Etc are absolute pond scum. They make crap up. They are dishonest. As a forum member I would like to urge us all to take a step back and stop giving these absolute grubs any air time.
I only heard the details of my friends ordeal last night so I am emotional still. But I tell you this - my days of reading the garbage written by these cretins is over. The days of Believing the garbage on the Fox shows Is over.
I need to be much more discerning in who I read and watch. I strongly urge all of us to do the same. Journalism should be the presenting of fact with occasional opinion, not Th e garbage we are enduring.
Side note: there will be a suicide at some stage directly linked to the lies spewed forth on social media by journalists. Let’s minimise their influence!
