Tired of lies?

It seems there are a lot of lies around these days. Blatant dishonesties, yes, but also subtle deceptions and misrepresentations. These falsehoods come in the form of manipulative advertisements, political vitriol, exaggerated news headlines, emotionally charged social media posts, and much more. Of course, there are many sincere statements of truth being made each day as well, but I often can’t help wondering whether something I hear or read is true or not. The thought comes, “Am I being manipulated?” 

Full disclosure: I can be a bit of a news junkie. Knowing what is going on in the government, the environment, education, global affairs, etc., is of interest to me. Nothing wrong with being informed. But I know it is not useful to get ensnared in the drama that often comes with misinformation. Getting pulled down into the weeds doesn’t help anything or anybody.
