Confusing opinions with facts

There was a time when news reporters reported facts. They reported the who, what, where, when and why.

As Sargent Joe Friday was reputed to have said “Just the fact’s ma’am”. That was what people wanted to hear, just the facts.

Now a days, it seems people confuse their opinion with facts. Science shows certain things. If you don’t agree, that is your opinion but it doesn’t change what the facts say. Reporters tend to give their biased interpretation instead of reporting the facts.

Just because you don’t like what the facts show doesn’t mean that your opinion overrides the facts.

Let’s get back to the facts and leave the interpretations to others.

Have a great day!
