As a professional writer, a user of words, I am aware of their power. The irresponsible use of language can, quite literally, undermine an entire society. Look what Fox 'News' has done and continues to do to the United States. The article I have cited at the end of this post posits that the Tea Party, on the extreme right of the Republican Party, is the creation of Fox 'News'. Without the oxygen of publicity to keep the flames of fury going, extreme politics die away. That oxygen is lustily applied by the Fox people, partly because they favour the Tea Party's views but overwhelmingly because those views are so good for ratings. If you have not watched the horror show that is Fox 'News', the content of which was so brilliantly described by Steven Colbert as 'truthiness' - a sort of 'feels-like-it-could-be-true-maybe' quality to their egregious lies and invented scandals, you will be amazed when you do. Truly amazed. Consider reading this article about the man who runs Fox 'News'. It is chilling - and not in the least exaggerated.
And now we take a break form this content for a word from our sponsor... Because language has such a power, when you need to express what your business does, why not talk to writer? I won't use truthiness - we will find a way to tell the truth about what you do and how you do it, building the vital trust that wins you clients and customers. If you need it written and you need it right, let's be in touch.
