This may just be something which only I see, but why do some people believe everything which is written in a paper. I’m making no comments to the particular papers I agree or disagree with but I’m getting really annoyed with people who blindly take in rubbish. Ok so here’s the situation which has got me thinking about this I’m sitting at work (yes I know Tesco is perhaps not the best place to expect reasoned arguments) and someone starts telling me how all the bridges in America are about to fall down. I didn’t help the situation by claiming that loads in the UK were as well.
This person had read a report on the Minneapolis bridge and decided that now every bridge in the US was about to break. I accept this incident has highlighted problems which may be linked across the country as every incident does but she was exagerating slightly. Then out of the blue she blamed Bush’s war in Iraq for the state of America. OK so that’s pushing the boundaries every so slightly I can see her argument slightly but why do people feel the need to blame this Iraq conflict for everything that happens or at least bring it up. Anyways the details of this incident are not necessarily important. My point is and todays rant is people who blindly believe what journalists say! Or don’t see the gaps in a story, and these are the most dangerous kind of people, people who cannot think for themselves.
