How a news opinion became a sour milk curd, and then was fed to the public.
Curds are a dairy product obtained by coagulating milk in a process called curdling. The coagulation can be caused by adding rennet or any edible acidic substance such as lemon juice or vinegar, and then allowing it to sit. The increased acidity causes the milk proteins (casein) to tangle into solid masses, or curds.
I made this comment in a Citizen Tom Blog in the Source below..
Interesting the timing I read your reply. I was reading the Chicago Tribune while watching how the different natural enemies of squirrels, birds, rabbits all were side by side eating in my backyard a variety of seeds I feed them and not fighting with each other.
It seems, the old saying of “feed them and they will come,” is true.
Problem with truth in news is what is being fed by news sources is truth mixed with a variety of opinions. Some opinions like this one in today’s tribune feed bigotry along with news.
As if there are no other angry people of color that fuel bigotry, only ‘DEPLORABLE white non college educated bigots.
Ancient Wisdom Proverb
Agur warned of how people press bigotry with a proverb. When you press people, this is the results.
…32If you have been foolish in exalting yourself Or if you have plotted evil, put your hand on your mouth. 33For the churning of milk produces butter, And pressing the nose brings forth blood; So the churning of anger produces strife.
In my opinion, the news should just report facts and get rid of columnists that press bigoted columns that press violence instead of presenting both sides of all issues.
In other words, news sources should just feed the truth as you commented instead of bigoted opinions.
If you feed bigoted columns, the fool bigots will come. When you feed truth, the wise will come.
That’s what the Charlotte tragedy is all about., in my opinion.
In My Opinion
This news column compares to pressing a sour opinion and adding acid instead of reporting the truth about the tragedy.
What is the truth of about the Charlottesville tragedy is instead of allowing the courts to make a decision about removing a statue of Robert E Lee, two opposing forces decided to press each other rather than wait for a lawful decision to decide the matter.,
Which opinions were right or wrong is not the issue. The issue should have been decided by a court of opinion, not a mob confrontation.
Notice I said a mob confrontation instead of a peaceful demonstration.
Notice what I fed the birds, rabbit, and squirrels did not cause a fight with each other.
Should a news source publish (feed) a column of acid sour milk curd opinions?
Should an Editor, ask a Columnist to report both sides of an story?
Or should the news just report the facts, or truth in the news?
