This article reminded me of what we talked about in class last Friday. We realized that for something to be truthful, it has to be in agreement with reality. In this case, a radio show (reality) claimed that the water system had been compromised. People who would not have had direct access to the water treatment companies would have no way of verifying this, and so a vast majority of people accepted this radio show prank as the hard truth.
The two DJs shared a declarative statement that turned out to be false, but I believe it shows how gullible human beings can be. Even if we don’t admit it to others or even ourselves, we usually trust, to some extent, what the media puts out there. Granted, some take that with a grain of salt, but many are quick to believe everything that they hear or read as the absolute truth.
An insightful article from one of our current IRIS Immersion students. Thanks Haley!
