(You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up)
It appears my latest missive (i.e., commenting on the current Joe Rogan situation) has caused quite a stir. What has been fascinating is many of the responses we’ve received. Some have been complimentary, others have been down right insulting, usually in response to my writing style, but that’s par for the course.
But what I’ve also rediscovered is the vitriol in regards to some political angle as if I’m taking one side or the other. It appears even the very mention of a candidate’s name, if only using it for reference, throws you into the political quagmire. Dare I say – I used three, one from each. So in response I have been targeted by each saying I’m a ________ (fill in the blank) supporter and an idiot. Well, let me declare right now I am not a ________(fill in the blank) supporter. However, when it comes to “idiot?” OK, enough said.
Another thing that seems to be proving out is what I addressed on the show last week, where a study was done indicating that nearly 90% of all articles posted online (both professional news and others) never get read but for the headline. This latest article of mine appears to prove that correct.
As all of you well know I don’t and won’t argue the “he said she said” of politics, don’t and won’t endorse any candidate, and stay as far away from politics as I can. And yet – I’m being accused of being a mouthpiece for ______________(fill in the blank.)
You just can’t make this stuff up.
