The News Gets It Wrong This Year

I see so many people just believing what they see on the news. The news gets it wrong all the time. To believe what you hear is downright dangerous. Question it. Just because you hear the same thing from 10 different news sources does not make it true. There’s, in fact, a good chance that they’re all getting it from just one original source – like the Associated Press (AP).

7. Anyone who ‘denies’ global warming shouldn’t be taken seriously.

6. You’d better not eat/drink that!

5. Most Americans are losing their homes.

4. “Going Green” is good for America and business.
