Stories and Facts (?)
: The biggest lesson of our new news world is that news doesn't end when it's printed or aired. That's when it begins. That's when we hear other evidence and questions and perspective. News takes time.First, we have a news story and the initial reaction. Then we tear the story apart with what seems like spin. After awhile, there is so much information, it's hard to keep all the stories and facts(?) straight. It becomes a flood of information and one needs to be an attorney to sort all the information. There is no black and white, no bottom line. It remains a debate that both sides of the story can claim theirs is the Truth. My eyes gaze over, and that's the strategy.
