In listening to a report on true media (not social technology we call social media), I heard President Biden describing the false information on social technology (we call it media) like Facebook and its negative impact on getting Americans vaccinated. False information bloviating all over social technology (it is falsely called media). To be “fair,” supposedly perhaps according to a mis-interpretation of what the Fairness Doctrine was, there was an “opposition” statement from the company which runs Facebook. That is not the end results of Fairness Doctrine. There should have been additional information and details about the issue presented. But Americans have been caught up in this shallow, “we are bored by too much details.” Therefore, we are told to “keep it short.” In so doing, this report last night was a disfavor to the issue.
Why do I say this? Because I am the one being scoffed at for the information specialist I am and was trained to be who taught my students how to “learn to learn.” Research is part of the idea of “learn to learn.”
With this being said, the story last night on true media should have presented what Facebook said and followed with further information. Facebook told the public that “there is more correct information [on its technological portal] than incorrect information.” That does not take into account the facts about all the incorrect information which is there and gives Facebook a chance to challenge what is said and not take it as constructive criticism. Individualism done by a corporation which is the same as what Donald Trump does. Aghast at constructive criticism, so wishing to cove over the information which exposes the truth.
There. To all my detractor idiocracy, is this short enough for you? If it’s not, then shame on you.
