That’s Some Crazy-Ass Shit

“Plotters in the deep state tried to shoot down Air Force One and foil President Trump’s North Korea summit. A cabal of global elites, including top figures in Hollywood, the Democratic Party, and the intelligence agencies, are responsible for nearly all the evil in the world. And now Trump is going to fix it all with thousands of sealed indictments, sending the likes of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama straight to Guantanamo Bay.” –Will  Sommer, Daily Beast

This is about as far out as you can get, even for the crazy right. But here’s something to consider. There are folks on the left who fall for all kinds of misinformation & bad, lazy opportunistic “reporting.” They share demonstrably false memes, chain messages, and stories from left-wing outlets that claim to be BREAKING news, but are really just rehashed stories from more credible sources that are repackaged with the kind of left-wing spin designed to attract clicks. These sites are feeding off the legitimate work or real reporters. They dilute real journalism and erode the credibility of the progressive movement.

So before we get too high on our own horses, lets make sure we employ critical thinking and discretion. Because those high horses can make quite a mess.

Credibility is earned. It is a form of currency. If you want it, you have to do the work.
