Just seen trending:
"Pubic Hair" over
"Piers Morgan"

US 'Catter's can probably get the idea. He was editor of 2 Comics (please don't call them newspapers) when phone hacking was considered acceptable in the industry. The Comic is now forced to admit it, he is in denial. No idea what the above are about, I don't read them.

Any other choice pairings seen by 'Catters?

Truth now comes in an unlimited variety of forms. Trending truth, viral truth, fake news truth, whats good for the country tooth, regular truth, classified truth, twitter truth, delusional truth, strategic truth etc.

Yes people are gullible but it goes deeper than rumored conspiratorial truth.

We are only 2 years out from the conspiracy theory that UN troops were massing in Texas for a complete take over. The Governor even called for the National Guard to respond.

America is well conditioned to believe rumors or be easily hypnotized but it is no more prone to believe the unbelievable or ease of hypnotizability than any other nation.

I nearly joined the fake news business against Trump but Joe talked me out of it. It turned out that the pro Trump fake people foreign and domestic actually made a living cranking that crap out.

Oh look, communism is trending over Obama crazed civil rights. ;^/


PS Eventually someone will recognized the psychological vulnerability I have witnessed for decades.

Fake news is serious.

Three days ago a man entered a pizzeria in Washington DC, heavily armed, and began shooting. He said he was investigating a ring of pedophiles.

Here's info from the Washington Post:

The restaurant's owner and employees were threatened on social media in the days before the election after fake news stories circulated claiming that then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign chief were running a child sex ring from the restaurant's backrooms. Even Michael Flynn, a retired general whom President-elect Donald Trump has tapped to advise him on national security, shared stories about another anti-Clinton conspiracy theory involving pedophilia. None of them were true. But the fake stories and threats persisted, some even aimed at children of Comet Ping Pong employees and patrons. The restaurant's owner was forced to contact the FBI, local police, Facebook and other social-media platforms in an effort to remove the articles.
=============
What to do? Talk with friends and family and explain that something can look like news but not be news. Social media is not the place for information about national and world affairs.

leenia, indeed fake news is serious. It goes farther than its title.
Weakness of mind is not required, repetition is. It can be overdone. The weakness inherit in America is accepting and being conditioned to a lie. The weakness inherent in fake news is the 'boy who cried wolf effect'. The damage fake news can do will come sooner than later.

These postulations come from my decades as a hypnotist and is far more real than most sensible people can personally accept.

_______________


Reality show reality.

Fox News is well versed in reality bending fake news.
A lie is better accepted when surrounded by two truths.
The spin becomes so ingrained that they sometimes write their copy in reality show lingo.
Actual quotes: "General John Kelly will play the role of Homeland Security Director", "Barak Obama is completely delusional"

There will came a time when journalists no longer responds to the tweet but only to the effect of Trumpnosis.

Here in DC we know the planet ping pong story well. the nation has about 5 mass shootings per day as emboldened weirdoes follow the new definitions of the second amendment crafted by the NRA. Remember the absence of the truth is also fake news

The U.S. Trumpist moronocracy doesn't CARE if the "news" is real or fake. They will believe the absolute bullshit they choose to invent or believe in the face of demonstrable fact to the contrary.

We have raised up a generation of idiots thanks to the Tea Potty, Limbaugh and his ilk, and the Republicrud party in general.

God help AmeriKKKa.

A 2-Year Study of More Than 5,000 People Shows This 1 Activity Destroys Your Emotional and Physical Health
This may sound like typical anti-social media crankiness from academia, but this time they have some impressive research to back up their case.

Want to stay healthy, both emotionally and physically? Researchers from UC San Diego and Yale have some simple advice for you: Limit the amount of time you spend on Facebook. While this may sound like typical anti-social media crankiness from academia, this time they have some impressive research to back up their case. Holly Shakya, assistant professor at UC San Diego, and Yale professor Nicholas Christakis spent two years following 5,208 adults who are part of a Gallup long-term study. After asking permission, they monitored these subjects' Facebook use directly from Facebook, rather than asking subjects to report their own use. (People often don't realize how much time they spend on the social network.) And they checked in with subjects on their emotional and physical well-being, as well as their body-mass index (BMI), three times over the course of two years.

"Overall, our results showed that, while real-world social networks were positively associated with overall well-being, the use of Facebook was negatively associated with overall well-being," the researchers wrote in a Harvard Business Review article. "These results were particularly strong for mental health; most measures of Facebook use in one year predicted a decrease in mental health in a later year." Yikes.

Why is too much Facebook bad for your emotional health? Previous research has shown that the social network creates a sort of false peer pressure. Since most people are cautious about posting negative or upsetting experiences on Facebook, the social network creates a misleading environment where everyone seems to be doing better and having more fun than you are. As the researchers put it, "Exposure to the carefully curated images from others' lives leads to negative self-comparison."
No comparison for the real thing.

But what of Facebook's magical ability to connect you to friends and family even when they're far away? To help you find long-lost friends and relatives? To help you keep up on what's going on with all the important people in your life? There's lots of research to show that having a social circle and an active social life and community leads to better health and greater longevity. The researchers wondered if a virtual social life and community would create the same benefits.

No, they don't, as these results make clear--in fact they have the opposite effect. In addition to negative self-comparison, the researchers note, increased use of Facebook and other social media tends to take up a lot of people's time and can create an illusion of closeness. To the extent that time spent on Facebook takes you away from real-world social gatherings, you lose the benefit of being in a community, the researchers say. The same is likely true if you're at a gathering in body, but your eyes and mind are locked on your smartphone, checking out your friends' latest posts.

So what should you do? I'm not going to tell you to stop using Facebook. You wouldn't listen to me anyway, and with so many people the world over using the network, it's impossible to just ignore it. But limit your use to no more than the hour or so each day that the average Facebook user spends on the site. And try to put down your phone more often, look up at the people around you, and join the conversation that's happening in the real world.

The dog whistle words in that story heading mean it's classic click bait. The kind of story that if you try to follow it for a photo it makes you click through 50 pages before you reach the one you were looking for.
