Do you think people are becoming numb to the news in this day and age?

Over the last few years, I would say at least last ten years, do you think the news run stories over and over again until people become numb to what's real and what's fake? It seems that some of the fake news stories are becoming more and more indistinguishable from the real news. It appears almost that there's no difference anymore? I would hate to say that this is true but it's becoming more harder to tell the difference. Makes me feel like I need to just read actual books instead, what do you think?

Well if by Media you mean US media, answer is YES. Since US Media has shown itself to be a mouth piece of the ruling Elite and the Military Industrial complex and Israel lobby, resulting in Obama being bigger War Monger than Bush, resulting in this abomination called Trump, resulting in USA having 1 Mass shooting after another which Republicans and Democrats do nothing about, because they know that the FAKE News rather than holding their feet to fire will instead cover another Fake story such as Trump is a Russia agent, aka Muller Russia investigation, even tough Trump has done NOTHING for Russia and in fact has been more Anti-Russia than Reagan. And so goes on and on the Fake right-wing Con Job that is US Media. Yuk :(

True. And of course that is why USA is engaged in War after War after War after War after War after War, under Democrats and Republicans. In fact USA is engaged in more Wars under Democrats than Republicans, yet US Media is such a right-wing lying Machine, such Fake, that the ultra right-wing Arm of this Fake, calls the Democrats to be:
"Liberal" "And have Democrats gone too far to the left"
"Socialist" etc non-sense.

In USA YES. Since our Choice for News ranges from Wall Street based right-wing lying Machines of ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC to Ultra right-wing lying Machines of Fox to Ultra Lunatic right-wing lying Machines of TalkRadio and then you have the Wall Street based Google to semen this right-wing lying echo chamber of lies upon us. The result of which USA being involved in War after War after War, Obama being bigger War Monger than Bush and the Psychopath Trump calling Obama "Socialist Liberal", etc. Fake Fake News.

Check this out for screen shot based proof:

And having NO Shame, Republicans and right-wing Media in continuing to Run a one Con Job after another on US, have said and will say "Are Google, Facebook, etc. (Big Wall Street media) Liberal and against Trump Republicans..." when the facts are as superbly illustrated in this guardian piece, via Screen Shots, that of course as a Wall Street based Media outlet, Google is a KEY part of the right-wing Media machinery just as are Fox, MSNBC, CNN, etc.. just in different shades so.

I think it's mainly because of the amount of information that we process on a daily basis. That, and the fact that the line between entertainment and reality becomes more and more invisible. Think reality tv.
