“A lie can travel halfway around the world before the truth is putting on its shoes”
The list of sensational headlines based on shoddy research just continues to grow. Whether by commission, omission or plain old ignorance, our media is failing us — it’s not probing as critically and deeply as it should to ensure the information it brings us is valid.
Among several examples in today’s video, Chris scorches recent reports that covid-19 could not have been developed in a lab — reports that rely heavily on an authority who just happens to have years of experience collaborating with Wuhan scientists working with coronaviruses (including bats), BUT THIS WASN’T DISCLOSED.
Our big frustration here is that the reports we’re having to devote time to debunking in our daily videos shouldn’t be getting the air time they are this far into the coronavirus crisis.
Why are there still so many inaccuracies in today’s news? Collectively, the media should have sharpened its game in its pandemic reporting by now. It should have seasoned vetting processes in place by this time.
Especially when the stakes of being wrong are remain so high.
Just another reason to say: It didn’t have to be this way.
Oh well, we’ll continue these daily critical thinking-based updates for as long as their needed. Looks likes that’s going to be for a while…
