We're gonna be okay.

Evil is weak.

The truth will shine through

Excerpt from article: "CNN’s ubiquitous “Breaking News” banner is gone, now reserved for instances of truly urgent events. Snarky on-screen captions — “Angry Trump Turns Briefing Into Propaganda Session,” for instance — are discouraged. Political shows are trying to book more conservative voices, and producers have been urged to ignore Twitter backlash from the far right and the far left."

This has been somewhat known for a while now but this definitely sheds a light on what lies we face and how surreptitiously they are woven.

I want to share this here for the above reason, as well as to shed light on the idea that these stories are manufactured to generate hate of certain groups by lying about them.

Why do people do this, as in this case? Control over a narrative. A way to vilianise and demonise certain people.

Remember to keeps your wits about you. people lie all the time and big organisations/companies/corporations lie all the time, plus they're better at it due to the increased brain power that can come with hundreds - or thousands - of employees.

It's sad that people fell for this.

Hear me out here: maybe with Musk set to buy twitter, this misniformation board would be useless because twitter is they only reliable tool for enacting practices related to this.
