    What a biased report of the “facts”. Perhaps a critical look at what people believe would be more accurate. It is interesting how reality is not actual fact , but a perception of facts. Where has the thinking outside of social media gone? If the general population agree to think a certain way it does not mean they are right, only that they think the same. Masses of people in the past have been wrong before.
