So, if they mess up that stuff (and some of it is just plain painful to hear) you can assume they mess up just about everything else.

A perfect example is the company my DW w*rks for. Not too long ago, a customer demanded a lot of crazy things and just CRAZY. Eventually, she went to the local news and reported all the inhumane things this company was doing. The media outlet did call DW's company and they gave them the entire story...but guess what was reported? The salacious but unfounded BS the customer was preaching. The only "rebuttal" was a 4 second graphic from the company saying something to the effect of "We are working to get this figured out". ALL LIES.
As some of you forum members know that I was employed as coal mine management, and some of those years were spent as a mine rescue team member. And of course, any time there was a issue at a coal mine, we were all kept abreast of the situations, just in case we were called upon. The lies, misrepresentations, fake news used by the media since the late '80's in mining stories was atrocious. I recognized then that that there was an agenda, and this was decades before the current situation.

The freedom of the press in the US is tragically getting destroyed by the very same people who are there to protect it and make sure it works.
