Excerpt:Â Â Itâ€™s a timeless story, The Boy who cried Wolf, one I can remember reading many times as a young child perusing Aesopâ€™s Fables long past my bedtime, while the rest of the house was sleeping. Itâ€™s a simple moral, â€œThere is no believing a liar, even when he speaks the truth.â€ My love of these fables had an enduring effect; imprinting their many lessons on the direction my life has taken. Of late, it has occurred to me that many people are employing this moral to the yellow journalism that has graced the pages of our nationâ€™s newspapers, the hyperbole which has escaped the mouths of our nationâ€™s politicians and to the manipulation of statistics by special interest groups to draw attention to their causes. As I read the Reuters headlines today on my Verizon LG mobile phone, my skeptical side emerged in full force. â€œMore than Â¼ of US Birds Threatened: Report...global warming may be partially to blameâ€, yeah, right; â€œBush vows active U.S. role for Mideast peaceâ€, where have I heard that before?; â€œCuddly Croc forces passenger off flightâ€, sounds like â€œSnakes on a Plane.â€ I rarely clicked to read the entire item, mentally deleting anything that didnâ€™t sound like there was any substance to it. Every once in awhile I delved further, â€œKeep your shoes on: T-rays can see right through.â€ Hmm, that could truly be a breakthrough for medical science but I wouldnâ€™t want airport security aiming that at my breasts.
