Honesty [Used To Be] the Best Policy

If we’re going to be honest about news today, we have to also consider the source of the information. In today’s highly politicized climate, news simply isn’t news anymore inasmuch as it’s opinion and cheerleading for one side or the other. Anyone looking at news without a preconceived idea can clearly see nearly all media is in the tank for one candidate or the other. That’s not the news of yesteryear, and our so-called reporters haven’t the class nor even the ability of those in the mid 20th century. Walter Cronkite, for example, was a liberal, yet that belief system of his didn’t seem to come out with his reporting. That is professionaliam. I wish we had more news media like that.

The unfortunate part of this is the American people suffer in a way in that we simply do not know any more what is and is not true. We have to take someone’s word for it and we tend to accept the words that we choose to believe rather than researching and taking the time to find out the truth.

Politics is a dirty business and it seems to get worse with each election cycle. I don’t know where that will take us as a country and a society, but I don’t believe it will end well, unfortunately.

About Bits 'n PCs

I was raised in a two-parent functional home and have worked hard the majority of my life. I started my first business at the age of 12 mowing lawns in my neighborhood. At age 14, I worked summers as a bricklayer's laborer and weekends as a machine shop janitor. I have come to enjoy politics but have grave concerns for our country and how it is changing and going deeper and deeper into debt. I also worry about people who willfully want to believe every sound bite their party puts out instead of fact-checking for the truth. Politics has become a very vicious 'game' in which there are virtually no rules and no limits anymore. It's time to set the record straight pertaining to ALL sides of the aisle. Thus, NewsWhores was born. Come watch us grow.
