I wonder how many news reporters embellish stories to get a bigger reaction from viewers.

Different topic, but related.

Not surprising.

We have regular American high school kids not knowing who the Vice President of the US is all the way to presidential candidates not knowing that Africa is actually a continent.

The House, The Senate, and the President. That comment is near the end of the video.

Obama and his 57 state tour.

Pelosi does not know which amendment is which.

But Guantanamo houses a lot of people that are a threat to the citizens of the USA......
....Awww. I see the similarity.

Lol I just thought of a great joke. What is the difference between the District of Columbia and Guantanamo Bay? One houses many people who are a threat to the US and the other is a prison.

If they are Columbia, send them back to the distric from whenc they came. No exceptions! Unless they want to clean motel rooms.

Let's not forget that meanwhile the TSA is allowing illegal immigrants to travel with no verifiable id.

That whole agency is on drugs.

The reporter is attempting to make a story from nothing.
That's why they have supervisors. People learn from their mistakes.
If bosses fired employees for not knowing something, no one would have jobs.

As you get older you find there are things that you think should know but don't.
My biggest pet peeve is spelling, punctuation and word choices in these forums.
These are things you should have known from early school.

If you really want to worry about something, watch this clip.

Embellishing stories is not as bad as creating them lies out of whole cloth . . . as is too often the case.

The oligarchy has used the MSM as their personal propaganda machine since at least 1915, 1917 when they bought out the major newspapers.

I suspect embellishing is a common feature to some lesser or greater degree.

However, given the terminal levels of stupidity that keep cropping up with alarming frequency far and wide . . .

some of this pig poo is tooooo preposterous for the creativity of the average globalist MSM stooge to make up.

imho, of course.

Folks in the SW still run into folks who think that the Native Americans are still shooting arrows at us out here.

And ordering online from NM can routinely get questions about shipments to foreign countries, customs duty, etc.


The globalist education system on display.

I think most of us . . . even with PhD's and sometimes particularly with some types of PhD's . . . typically make spelling and other English errors.

English is a terribly complex language with tons of exceptions to most rules, garnered from a diversity of parent languages. And it's soooooo far from spelled phonetically that expecting most folks to remember good spelling is a hope infutility. It's reasonable for even educated folks to make SOME English errors.

However, given the text form of online forums . . . one would HOPE that EVENTUALLY folks could tell the difference between

"are" vs "our" vs "hour"


"They're," vs "their" vs "there."

Too often it seems like a lot of ATSers are about as bright about such simple English errors as the TSA bloke was about D.C.

Clearly our educational system is doing everything under the sun but educating properly.

I guess they have to spend too much time teaching

--kindergartners where to poke what in same sex partners;

--how to say Muslim prayers but face expulsion for saying anything about Jesus;

--how to turn in their classmates for biting their bread into the form of a gun;

--how to pledge to "Mother Earth" and curse the USA;

--how to pledge allegiance to communalism and curse individual initiative, responsibility and creativity.

. . .

The sad irony in all of this is the TSA requiring ID's to fly while at the same time the illegal immigrants that are being shuffled around in the US are not required to provide identification to fly.

You deserved a star for that
Besides why require them to have ID when you're trying to spread a pandemic?
