Is it time to stop watching the news?
With the recent COVID-19 pandemic the one thing that has struck me most is the amount of misinformation that has come from the press, especially the mainstream media which we should have been able to trust with keeping us in touch with what is going on with the wider world.
Now, I have always known that the vast majority of journalists are always willing to cut corners to get their content and why should the truth get in the way of a good story, eh? Do you notice that these media hounds search out bad news anywhere in the world and serve it on a plate for our morbid consumption, and in my opinion are a worse profession that the old-style double-glazing or second-hand car salesmen selling dodgy windows or beat up old bangers to the ignorant public?
What other job today would it be acceptable to lie for a living? Except being a politician perhaps!
During the current lockdown I have stopped watching news programmes, and guess what; I feel happier and even more positive than usual because I am getting on with life and not letting the press drag me down with their negatively and misinformation.
My focus is now wholly on making my family, friends, staff and of course my customers happy!
