As more information comes out about the Colorado theater shooter, please keep in mind these two things:
- The Murray Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect – The media will freely spout off on subjects they know nothing about, and without doing even basic research. You know this, and you see it anytime you read an article about a subject you have personal knowledge about. Why would you assume they suddenly know what they’re talking about on a subject you don’t have personal knowledge about?
- The media lies – Good grief, just look at how they’ve handled the Trayvon Martin shooting, or anything to do with gun control? Whether it’s to further a political agenda, or simply to draw in readers by stirring up controversy, they are perfectly willing to deliberately and blatantly lie. DON’T TRUST THEM.
