God Bless the USA

I have a degree in journalism. I know the rules on reporting. When I watch certain channels on television, I question if the reporters know the rules.

I have chosen not to watch some news channels. They show clips of events, but not the event in its’ entirety, thus not reporting but influencing viewers to see the event in a different light.

Then there is fake news. Not just on television, but everywhere on social media. Many people believe everything they read. Fake news provides untruths and inaccuracies which in turn causes those reading it to share it all over the place, causing turmoil among others.

It has been reported, truthfully or not, that the United States is deeply divided since President Trump was sworn in. Some believe this occurred before he took office.

In my opinion, the media, fake and otherwise, is not helping the situation. They are still licking their wounds from Hillary Clinton’s defeat in November.

The day before the election, one news source was declaring Hillary a winner. To me, that is influencing the people, telling us how to vote.

The media shouldn’t have that power. They should report each side of an issue fairly. When Donald Trump won the election, the looks on the reporters faces was priceless. How could the polls be so wrong? I have often wondered how accurate polls are. I now know, they aren’t. The media isn’t handling defeat well. They have chosen to report negatively about President Trump, causing more chaos.

I was raised to respect others, even if I didn’t particularly care for them. I have voted in every election since I was the legal age of 18. I haven’t always voted for who won, but I didn’t protest the election. I accepted the outcome and put my support behind the winner.

Some have forgotten what respect is. Some have forgotten what morals are. Some have forgotten where they live.

I haven’t forgotten. I live in the United States of America. I will always respect and support who is in office. I pray for President Trump, and all future leaders, to succeed. If they fail so do we.

God Bless the USA!
