Scoot Show 310pm Lamplighter Robbery
Were American flags banned at the Democratic convention? Is social media poisoning America? Scoot got a text from a listener who wanted his opinion on the Democratic Party banning American flags from their convention. When I got off the air yesterday – I did some research and found out that a few right-wing websites were reporting that the Democrats had banned the American flag from the convention because it was offensive to too many Democrats. And the websites offered visual evidence of the absence of American flags at the Democrats’ convention. But the “so-called evidence” was totally false and presented an unfair depiction of the two conventions. Have you fallen for something that was sent to you that wasn’t true but only sent to promote a biased view? What was it? What did someone send you? Do you see more vile, disturbing things on social media or more positive, enlightening or fun stuff? And, which is more concerning – Facebook or Twitter? How do we change social media being used to poison America?
