Fake News may benefit your memory

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Not all news is fake, and even if a story turns out to be fake news, there’s value in it, according to a study in the journal Psychological Science.

Thinking back on a time you encountered false information or “fake news” may prime your brain to better recall truthful memories.

People who receive reminders of past misinformation may form new factual memories with greater fidelity.

Fulla article at Forbes magazine: Link

The article itself is fake news.  Because it says not all news is fake news...when...actually it is.  Any story...pick one...spins the story toward a particular point of view.  It's all biased.  It might be very subtle but it is there.  

The problem is...the real problem is that we were born believing the news.  By and large you will become whatever religious affiliation you were born into.  As well, whatever political persuasion you were born into.  We were all born into 'the news' being a truthful entity.  So when the media makes stuff up out of whole cloth, when the media takes a particular side of politics and spins the narrative to help elect their chosen candidate, even when the lies are extremely distasteful a certain percentage of people will believe it.  Especially if they were born into the political persuasion shared by the media.

In essence:

1. The media is always on the side of liberals and socialists.

2.  The media is always on the side of liberals and socialists.

3. The media is always on the side of liberals and socialists.

So you cannot trust any media.  Period.  Right or Left...doesn't matter.  They play the division game with each other and the Prolitariat fall for it every time. It's really become quite sickening in my opinion.
