The Pushers

Source: Common Sense
by Paul Jacob

They’re skulking around, speaking in furtive tones, lurking in dark places … hiding from oversight so they can do their dirty deeds unimpeded. Who? The disinformation pushers. They grab hold of one or more incorrect propositions and, indifferent to how wrong it is to be less than infallible in their utterances, willfully communicate their blunderful asseverations to others. Some pushers use encrypted services to peddle their verbal wares and evade beneficent censors who want only to help. Public policy is one of the topics the pushers brazenly yap about. Result? Political discourse is a mess, with not everybody agreeing about everything, as they simply must.” (11/12/21)
