It is important that we educate ourselves and our children!
Don’t Trust Media Alone, Educate Yourself!

Media is full of false information. When reporting news media twists it to what they want us to hear. Not sharing only facts but also mixing in their opinions. Media was made to give us the facts not their opinions. Media is not sharing all the information. They are using their position to persuade people to believe false things. Media sites have been stopping people from sharing the truth. Media should not stop us from sharing what we believe. If the media doesn’t agree with us that's fine, but we have a freedom of speech allowing us to state our opinions. If they don’t allow us to state what we believe they are threatening our freedom.

Don’t let the media alone educate you.

“To penetrate and dissipate these clouds of darkness, the general mind must be educated,”
--Thomas Jefferson.

If we just believe all the lies of the media we are setting ourselves up for failure. Our freedom is now at risk when we believe everything the media tells us.

“The only thing more expensive than education is ignorance,”
--Benjamin Franklin.

Educating yourself should be a top priority, because we can not trust the media for facts and truths alone. We need to be able to sort out the media's false information, but we won’t know what is false unless we have educated ourselves. If we educate ourselves we can make our own opinions and prove or disprove them.

“The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is knowledge of our ignorance,”
--Benjamin Franklin.

Truths and opinions are two very different things. Truth is something learned or proven. Opinion is something thought up or felt, but not yet proven or dis-proven. Educate yourself and let the false information of the media fall on deaf ears. Learn the truths that have been hidden under all media's lies. Don’t let the media persuade you like they do the uneducated.
