Social Media: An addiction?

By Jim Campbell

July 11, 2018

If I didn’t write daily on this site I wouldn’t turn my computer on.

So in that case, it would be fair to say I’m addicted to my Mac.

There are just too many fun things to do.

As for my iPhone, I don’t usually even know where it is, it is used as the most expensive phone book on earth to store my friend’s phone numbers and addresses, something I never had a problem with and committed to memory before the technology became available.

Denzel Washington starred in a public service message with over 7 million hits yet few if any are talking about it there lies the problem.

If we are like the individual or families described below there is but one solution.

 

It’s not that the devices are inherently addictive or that social media is bad per say, it’s the inability to differentiate one from the other while at the same time being able to tell what is true.

 

 

Not an easy task in today’s media that pumps out daily their own version of reality.

 

 

This could well be a public service announcement, but it has been buried so it’s likely you haven’t seen it.

Denzel Washington, an actual victim of a “fake news” lie, aimed his critical eye at the mainstream media — while standing on a red carpet talking to the mainstream media — as the real purveyors of today’s untruths and twaddle.

We live in an era of “too much information,” the Oscar winner said, adding that one of the consequences is the pressure on the media to be first is greater than the need to be true.

“So what a responsibility you all have — to tell the truth,” Washington exclaimed, laughing, to the pack of reporters gathered on the red carpet Tuesday for a special screening of his new film, Fences, at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American Museum of History and Culture in Washing.

 

 

The film adaptation of ‘Fences’ reunites Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, who won critical acclaim for their roles in the Broadway play.

“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed,” he said, as reported in The Hill

“In our society, now it’s just first — who cares, get it out there.

We don’t care who it hurts.

We don’t care who we destroy.

We don’t care if it’s true. Just say it, sell it. Anything you practice you’ll get good at — including BS.”

Washington’s remarks about the alleged sins of the mainstream media  come months after he himself was the center of an alleged phony story that circulated online this fall:

It falsely claimed Washington had dropped his support of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to endorse GOP nominee Donald Trump.

The fake story was shared thousands of times before it was removed — after the mainstream media debunked it.

Or did they?

 

But Washington, the longtime spokesman for the Boys & Girls Clubs, had another message for the White House resident, chuckling “President Obama, you are in trouble!”

Our country was actually the one in a serious as in eight years of his failed leadership, he nearly brought the Republic down.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
