There is good news and bad news and there is altered and twisted bad news.
It would be really great if all there was, was good news. News would be a joy to watch or listen to.
However, all bad news isn’t all bad. There are three types of bad news. One type is necessary news even through it is perceived to be bad. The other two types are unnecessary.
The 1st type of Necessary Bad News would be weather reports, warning of weather that could be life threatening or property damaging. Examples of this type of weather would be Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Flooding, blizzards, high winds, severe cold or severe heat.
Other types of Necessary Bad News would be road closures in your area due to traffic accidents, construction or flooding. You would need this information and must have knowledge about CPR Blurlington, in order to get to work. In the case of bad weather, you would need this information in order to protect your property and even your life.
Another type of Necessary Bad News would be reports of the spreading of deadly contagious diseases. We would need to have this information in order to find ways to protect ourselves from the infection.
Recently, people have been saying that the reports of Covid-19 were about spreading bad news and intentionally getting people upset. However, people need this information so they can protect themselves. They would like to have this information, rather than experiencing extreme illness or even death without the knowledge of the information!
In all the above cases of Necessary Bad News, people would be very upset if the bad information was not passed along. They would be very upset if they weren’t warned so they could protect themselves and/or their property.
The 1st type of Unnecessary Bad News is news that people don’t need to know about. Examples would be weather storms in distant lands. Or, bus accidents that occurred in India, or Africa.
The 2nd type of Unnecessary Bad News is taking a subject and altering and twisting it into bad news. This is often called, spinning it! This type of bad news is often found in Political settings. It is designed to upset and control people with the use of their own emotions.
This form of bad news is used extensively by Communist Socialists and Right Wing Socialists. These two political economic systems don’t deal in replicable truths they deal in altered and twisted “truths.” They call truths fake news and altered “truths” real. This is best described as Lies, Deception and Propaganda.
The problem with this type of Unnecessary Bad News is that it is hard to flush out because it is designed to hit the viewing or listening individuals emotionally very hard. These types of news are designed to trigger the heaviest of emotions that exist. They trigger hate, anger, fear, hostility, resentment and no sympathy. This type of Unnecessary Bad News targets areas where the targeted people can’t do anything to change the situation. The areas this 2nd Unnecessary Bad News targets are, color of skin, race, religion, taking away guns, poor people are bad, workers are bad and attacking replicable facts, as in Science.
In the Necessary Bad News, when people receive this information, they usually can do something about it. Even though this news is very upsetting they are grateful that they have been given this information. Today many, many people are grateful for the info they have received about covid-19. They have been able to do something about it. Personally, I would prefer to receive an over exaggerated version of the news about the danger of the virus so people will take notice and really get after handling their ability to control and survive it. This will make it faster to get back to work.
The 1st type of Unnecessary Bad News should not be presented at all. People receiving it can’t do anything about it. It is not in their physical area. This leads to upset and frustration.
The 2nd type of Unnecessary Bad News should NOT be presented at all, either. It is evil and is designed to harm and mislead people into voting against what is best for them. People can’t do anything about it and don’t have enough information to find the replicable truths. Most people aren’t experts in most subjects and don’t have the time or energy to research everything put out by this Unnecessary Bad News type. Plus, this type of news is designed to overwhelm people emotionally. In an effort to find a solution, some will pursue violence against people of color. Some will seek to force their views on others while carrying weapons to intimidate. This type of Unnecessary Bad News will cause families and friends to split up and fight. It will divide and weaken Nations. It will destroy Nations economically. Many people will give up and not vote at all; they feel powerless.
The solution, to prevent this 2nd type of Unnecessary Bad News, is to make sure nothing is presented as News that can’t be replicated over and over again in reality. This is not an attack on Free Speech. This is an attack on lies. Free Speech isn’t about the freedom to lie and mislead and upset people with information that has been twisted and altered with the design to control people with their own heavy emotions.
Opinion! Is the area where these lies and twisted and altered views belong! The Opinion section, of a Media outlet, should be the only area where the twisted and altered views belong. It should be mandatory, that in any opinion section of any Media Outlet, there be required a rebuttal by other people who present the correct replicable facts.
