Don’t fall victim

I watched on TV President Obama in East Lansing give his speech and sign the new Farm Bill. He gave appropriate kudos to Sens. Levin and Stabenow. The President was informative, charming, complimentary to his wife and humorous.

Being curious I clicked to Fox News to see how they were covering this important speech. The network was not covering the speech at all. Typical.

I believe that freedom of speech is imperative to any continued success of our country. But we also all have to realize that it is completely lawful for a powerful news media entity to lie to viewers to advance their agenda. Truly, it is every citizen’s responsibility to be and remain well informed and not fall victim to the well-orchestrated propaganda that Fox News offers up.
