This is a growing problem that I fear will not be resolved. As a society, we’ve fallen down a slippery slope whereby if one disagrees with facts, truth, or perspective, it gets labeled as ‘fake news.’
Over the years, we’ve effectively brainwashed the core of our audience to distrust anything that they disagree with. And now it’s gone too far,” said John Ziegler, a conservative radio host, who has been critical of what he sees as excessive partisanship by pundits. “Because the gatekeepers have lost all credibility in the minds of consumers, I don’t see how you reverse it.”
I don’t see how this can be reversed. We’re over the waterfall.
