What is with mainstream news these days? It seems every person on every channel has their own opinion on almost anything. How can you trust opinions? Short of any facts, the answer is you cannot.

Are you going to listen to a news commenter when they starting spewing out their personal opinions with no facts? The fact is these news commentators are not PhD’s or rocket scientists or experts in anything. If they were, they wouldn’t be on the TV news would they? Opinions and big egos seem to go hand in hand.

It is getting almost impossible to watch the news due to the fact you cannot separate opinions from facts and the truth of what is really going on.

If McCarthyism was ever to make a comeback, now would be a good time as there is so much misinformation being spread due to opinions, the common sense person has no idea what to believe.

Long gone are the days of Walter Cronkite when you felt you could actually trust the news reporting. These days it is anything but. Opinions and false news stories have proven to whip up a public fury turning everyday citizens into rabid, violent protesters.

Everyone has a right to their own opinions, no matter how crazy they are. However, this does not mean that any opinion is right.

Just because a person is on TV does not make his opinion worth any more than your own.

Common sense and facts. Don’t believe everything you hear just because.
