Is there anything that no people say?
In their never-ending quest to lower the standards of journalistic integrity, Fox “News” seems to rely heavily on the “fact” that “some people say…” this, that or the other as a way to inject their own political propaganda into what passes for news. They do this without ever referring to who these “some people” are. Here’s a compilation! of Fox paid commentators and “experts” as well as anchors resorting to the artifice.
It kind of begs the question, is there anything that no people say. Does finding one small group of nutcases who say the world is flat mean we actually should go back to debating whether it is flat? Aren’t news people supposed to exercise at least some judgement and research to find out whether or not a rumor is true before giving it national “news” exposure? Shouldn’t this be particularly necessary if the rumor comes from a source that has, in the past, proved to be wildly inaccurate? Or is absolutely anything that more than one person claims really news nowadays?
