There is No News – Only Opinions With Which We Choose to Agree

Journalism is dead. And it has been for a very long time.

Facts only exist in a fleeting moment of time. And then they vanish. Memory converts all facts into perspectives. It is inevitable.

Even weather is opinionized … and sensationalized. It can’t just be snowing. Instead, it has to be snowmageddon-ing.

Bitcoin is not simply going up or going down. It is either headed to the stratosphere or it’s on the verge of a catastrophic collapse.

I have a lot of politically vocal facebook friends. Some lean left. Some lean right. They all think they are discussing current events. But they are not. Instead, they are merely discussing someone else’s account of some event that has previously occurred.

In many ways we are all like the walking dead in the movie, “The Sixth Sense” who only see what they want to see.

We are all guilty of believing only the reporting with which we agree. The reports we accept as true are what help us decide whether or not to venture outside in a snowstorm, invest in Bitcoin or argue the merits of capitalism with a facebook friend who we haven’t seen since 3rd grade.

While it is most certainly not “News”, it’s these varying assumptions that keep life interesting.
