breaking news - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
When breaking news is untethered to truth and reason, when it fails to see events from multiple perspectives and do the real legwork of journalism. We need the everyday Lois Lane heroes to step up, as many already are. Presenting ungrounded hearsay as truth is causing cognitive dissonance on populations, a form of psychological damage, similar to what we call gas-lighting. And this is why for population health the media must be held to standards - they are free to speak of whatever they want so long as they can back it up with facts, logic and reason that are ideally informed by empathy and the intuition of nurture.
Is breaking news bray-king you? Does it break what you knew and keep you saddled with fear and doubt? Are you addicted to car-rots, the orange tweets that are care-rot? Does the breaking knews contin-ewe to fleece your sanity? Because it is creating so many short-circuits in your brain that soon even number five won't be able to make you come alive.
When our attention is held fast to the international farce how can we focus on what traditionally mattered to human society, to our local communities? How can we focus on the wellbeing of school children, on the hungry, on the homeless? How can we care for the local ecosystem and wildlife? Breaking news may well be breaking us.
Meanwhile, in the mean stile, the bray-king knews is that all this junk food and tweets are breaking you. So please, as democracy's Hail Mary, give your brain a real fact-checked workout and maybe things will workout.
