Hard To Keep Up With All The Fake News

"Stray fireworks did start a small blaze, but only on netting covering scaffolding on the church and it was put out after about 12 minutes, the paper reported. The roof was not on fire and the church is not Germany’s oldest."
This is another example of how false news stories break faster then fact checkers can keep up with them (boring as that may be). Far too many people with short attention spans are willing to propagate this kind of stuff which fits their agenda. Rather then take the time dig down for the truth they instead choose the path that will generate a lot of exciting inflammatory reaction. This formula has proven quite successful for many talking heads in the media.

It's up to each and every individual to see past this and research (unbiased) on our own wherein truth exist. There's plenty of resources on the internet. Failure to avail ourselves will be upon each of us. Not they who seek to take advantage of our ignorance (laziness).

No one should accept media, government intelligence reports or any other person's words without due diligence.
