It’s getting to the point that people are saying legit media outlets are reporting fake news because their opinions aren’t being validated. Where the fuck does it end and begin?
Not a new phenomenon, I’m afraid: go back as far as you like and you will find that, when presented with an alternative source of information, people have dismissed that source as leftwing/rightwing biased and, therefore, effectively ‘fake’ by virtue of delivering on an ideological agenda.
Why is this country so ignorant and proud of it?
Again, that’s not a new phenomenon really and whilst not limited to the so-called working classes, it has, nevertheless, been a prominent feature of working-class culture: only those who have ideas above their station (i.e. think they’re ‘better than everyone else’) value (let alone flaunt) their education — it’s unpatriotic, don’t you know?
