Rhetoric, Fake News & Ignorance

Rhetoric, Fake News & Ignorance
By Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group

Gullibility is more prevalent today than ever before!  You would have thought we have learned lessons from days of old where news traveled slowly and social media have not been invented.

Stop believing the media as those that have an additional edge on the truth of a story.  They like you are in the bubble of life and have the same opportunities to hear and see events and issues and are as human as you.  The difference is simple, you don’t have a boss, editor or news producer that is pushing to be first with so-called, unsubstantiated information that must go on air, be a front page or online website headline.  They view it that they can retract the information or claim it was true and hope everyone reads them first, no matter what the consequences.

Where is the logic, questioning statements or suggestions that we are confronted from all communications angles? 

Rhetoric, Fake News & Ignorance have been with us since the world began!  Stories created, conceived and spread by gullible people.  Why is it we believe everyone and doesn't question?  Just because it is on the Internet does not mean it is true, factual and there is a back-story to why it is there in the first place.

There is nothing wrong in questioning all you hear in a professional and logical manner. Asking questions is necessary, especially in these days of being bombarded with more information that we can comprehend.  Take time, to stop, evaluate and let the gut feeling litmus test of life take over.  It is your mind, your life and does not get caught up in repeating false lies and fake news.

Clarity is required even in these days of more news sources, photographs and innuendo pushed in front of our eyes by all means.

Think before you become part of the continuances of Rhetoric, Fake News & Ignorance!
