Some ‘common sense’ I’ve learnt to shelve

4 Mar

1. ‘Not reading the newspapers means you’re missing out on Something.’

Truth: Not really. Circa 2014-15

2. ‘Vaccines are.’

Truth: Nope; their widespread and normative use have far shakier and political economy linked origins than you’d like to acknowledge. Circa 2010-11.

    I have to admit I’m a bit of a news junkie. I wouldn’t say I’m obsessive, because I would never run myself down in public but I cannot remember the last day in my life when I didn’t at lest glance at the papers, or have one or two stories which I was following in great detail

    I would love to hear your thoughts on vaccines. In some circles you can’t hardly mention the word without being eaten alive by people of the opposite opinion.

    I haven’t read a newspaper since NIE class in middle or high school. Sensational news finds its way around and newsworthy news sometimes doesn’t even make it to the newspapers.
