In today's society what really can we say is the truth? Most of what we hear from news sources whether they are TV, Radio, News Papers, magazines or the internet, have been crafted with only one goal in mind. Sell more publications, get higher ratings and grab the attention of more and more consumers.
It seems that the truth has some how lost its appeal. So often we are attracted to the buzz of the headlines and the initial story, but how often do we wait for the truth to surface to find out what really happed or what the real issues are.
We as consumers have been corralled, misled, polluted, and confused, by the media hype and spin-doctor machine until we are too exhausted and over whelmed by the retoric and minutia to have the focused attention needed to analyze the facts when the truth finally comes to light. "The story that could be" has become so enticing to the media conglomerates that the real story and a great story no longer resemble one another.
“A Measure of Truth” attempts to expose the underlying truth of News Stories that you all have heard before, but gives you firsthand accounts from key players that have not yet been given a voice to tell the facts.
These bearers of truth are often forced to wait until the media hype has expired and the backstory, what was in fact the only story, finally comes into vogue. Why wait to be objective andto see things clearly. The Truth has always been there, just waiting to be discovered.
I wait with bated breath, ready to diffused the hype and ask the questions that expose the truth… hidden beneath the headlines.
When News and Information comes with this much baggage… we can only hope, for “A Measure of Truth”.
