Ninety percent or more of what we hear or view on the internet, tv, radio, or news shows consists of opinion rather than solid comments based on fact. This means that we spend most of our time as recipients of speculation or guesswork by others. These rivers of speculation flow toward the ultimate goal of gaining monetary and other profits. Why? Because anything new, however baseless, is thought to attract more attention than older communications. If this is true, most of what we hear or see in the media should be sent to the recycle bin, just as fake news should be sent to trash.
