I’m not naive. I realize that the news has to be dumbed down for a lot of people to understand it. I know that “news entertainment” has to be created from thin air to make people click on ad-generating links.
Unfortunately, people are dumber than I thought.
I found this lovely headline today: Analysis: US Strikes Unsettle Damascus. Did people really think the Syrians and their leaders aren’t “unsettled” when people drop bombs on their country?
So this is what passes for “analysis” these days…
