There is nothing more frustrating then having people fly off the handle at you, especially on social media, without providing any sort of valid or research-based argument from a legitimate source. I often hear people spouting opinions as if they were actual news. It has reminded me of the days that I would go home and be subjected to watching Fox News and the “O’Reilly Factor” with my dearly departed grandmother.
To start, let’s all take a deep breath. I know that most of us are spinning from all of the changes and upheaval in the U.S. right now, so let’s take a moment to dissect what is really occurring in politics and the media. Firstly, this is not a political post. It’s obvious what my politics are if you have visited any of my social media, but more than anything, I want to take a moment to help people understand what is happening from a seasoned public relations pro’s perspective.
