You miss the point. The one-way war of disinformation needs to become a two-way war. Merely playing defense does not cut it. Yesterday a facebook “friend” posted a link purporting to show that the rate of “gun violence” was highest in red states. In the very small print, however, was the author’s definition of “gun violence”. It included all injuries from not only criminal acts, but self-defense and mere accidents as well. The “friend” who posted it simply ignored my objection to the obvious misleading nature of the link, and continued to talk about the “gun violence” in those red states. This is how they operate, and guess what, it works.
I hate to think anyone here is intentionally spreading disinformation.
But in order to be able to discern truth from fiction ALL information needs to be on the table, not only what the MSM wants on the table.
Lenin and Alinsky would embrace your idea but I couldn't disagree more.
It is a given that the left lies and distorts constantly. On the other hand, I frequently receive emails from other conservative friends that are perpetually circulated through email and also contain self-serving untruths. When I receive these I also make it a point to let them know they are perpetuating BS.
Truth and honesty are sacred........we abandon them at our peril.
