There’s fake news that’s done on purpose, and then there’s fake news that just happens because people make mistakes.
This weekend, the world almost went to war because of a cock-up by a couple of nooze agencies ( http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-14/chinese-media-almost-sets-world-war-3-erroneous-north-korea-headline ).
North Korea was having its annual “Day of the Sun” parade, honoring the depraved homicidal maniacs who run the place: this after repeatedly declaring they were going to test a nuclear weapon, breaking an international treaty, and threatening to bomb America’s allies and military bases. So that made a lot of people nervous.
Well, they haven’t set off the nuke yet. What they did was to trot out their new improved long-range missile for the parade.
First China’s Xinhua news agency reported–oh, boy!–“North Korea Fires Projectile.” Shoulda been North Korea displays projectile. America’s Bloomberg news agency picked up the Chicoms’ fumble and ran with it, full speed to the wrong goal line. And it seems there was a bit of a military scramble started until someone sorted out the error before anyone could start shooting.
Remember, in Jaws, Roy Scheider sees the giant monster shark and tells Robert Shaw, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”? And Shaw doesn’t listen to him, does he–and his boat gets wrecked and sunk and he gets eaten by the shark.
We need a bigger boat than the one designed and built by what passes for human wisdom.
God is the only one who has such a boat. Reminds me of a boat He once lent to Noah and his family…
