It's legal, so why not?

Have you watched the News today?
Maybe you saw a story that made you feel sad,
Or maybe one that made you feel happy.
Now, think about that story you saw.
I'll take a bet that it's never crossed your mind, that this story might be completely false.

Why is it that we always believe the word of other people?
If we haven't seen it first hand, we have no proof it actually happend...
So why are we so quick to believe everything we hear?
Maybe it's just Human Nature.

And maybe just maybe our gullibility it being taken advantage of.
Let me get to the point.

I logged onto Twitter today, and saw that HudinisGhost had tweeted a very informative link.

Fox News gets okay to misinform public, court ruling

"Many news agencies lie and distort facts, not many have the guts to admit court...positioning the First Amendment as their defense!

The attorneys for Fox, owned by media baron Rupert Murdoch, successfully argued the First Amendment gives broadcasters the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on the public airwaves."

"On February 14, a Florida Appeals court ruled there is absolutely nothing illegal about lying, concealing or distorting information by a major press organization."

Baicly what it's saying is that, News stations first amendment right allows them the freedom to distort stories and facts. 

You never know who else is misinforming you.
