CNN’s Jake Tapper turns some heads when he called out President Joe Biden for scolding the wrong people. Jake Tapper says Biden is scolding the people who are being lied to, instead of scolding the people who are out there telling lies and sharing misinformation.
Tapper said, “I don’t think scolding is the approach. There are these purveyors of misinformation out there, and they’re not just on the right. Robert Kennedy Jr. is one of the most notorious ones … [Biden’s] scolding the people that are being lied to as opposed to the liars”
WATCH JAKE TAPPER SAY IT OUT LOUD:
What Jake Tapper is saying here is that Joe Biden is pointing fingers at the wrong crowd. Biden targeted the unvaccinated people for making the pandemic last longer. But Jake says Biden should be targeted the people who are feeding those people misinformation about the virus and pandemic and vaccines.
Jake might be right here. There are people in the media and social media who are posting tons of anti-this, or anti-that and it ONLY so they can get more likes and shares on their content. They don’t even believe half the things they’re saying, they’re just trying to get attention and gain more followers, suck in more donations, and they really are a scummy group of people. This goes all the way to the bottom of the barrel with lousy loud mouth people on social media all the way up to mainstream news shows who are only saying things because that’s what their audience wants to hear.
It’s like there is nothing genuine anymore. Everyone is after likes, shares, comments, and ratings. If we kept the number of likes and shares hidden from everyone, then I bet you people would start being more genuine.
This also reminds me of the fake news trend that took off in 2016 when Trump was running for president the first time. When those teenagers in Romania were making fake news stories, then people in America started doing it too.
The result was that Facebook was banning their sites, but they also started changing the algorithm of people’s news feed. That was a big loss for me because all of the meme pages I followed had stopped showing up.
The reason for that was because I didn’t LIKE any of their posts in 30 days, so FB’s new algo at the time would drop them from your news feed. Well, the problem there is that I can’t like or share offensive memes on my personal page because of work or family – but that doesn’t mean I don’t want them to appear. When FB did that, I stopped seeing all my favorite offensive pages! I was literally mad about it because I thought they had all closed down and Aunt Betty’s breakfast posts started appearing more. Ugh!
That’s a perfect example of how the wrong group of people were punished. Our news feed was fine – eliminate the fake news was the answer, not updating the news feed and stopping the legit websites from getting clicks, or stopping people like me from seeing my offensive memes.
