I got a flat on a bald tire once and cursed the guy that made it at the tire factory

Because many people were never taught personal responsibility when they were young. As a supervisor both in the military and now in the private sector, I see it all the time. People refuse to accept that their own actions carry consequences and everything is always someone else's fault.

I have worked with people like that.  My assessment,  small minds and low IQ's.

Because they never grew up to be adult and still have a childish mind? "It's YOUR fault I ran into that car". It's YOUR fault I assaulted my wife". Stuff like that. Don't ever take responsibility for something they've done, that's childish, selfish, self-centered behavior.

It comes down to integrity and taking ownership. Some folks have no clue what that entails.

People want to make things simple, good guys, bad guys, people that take responsibility and are adults like me and childish folks like everyone else. Most things seldom have one cause and effect, blame is pretty meaningless, everybody dies broke , the idea that somehow if everyone did the right thing , everything would be fine is a fallacy.

I believe those people were raised in the same kind of atmosphere.
I knew people whose kids were merely an echo. Hard to listen to.

Here is a good example of blaming someone else.

Tucker Carlson outrageously blames mass shootings on women lecturing about ‘privilege’ after Highland Park

I dunno that it's "too often."  But to my mind it's w-a-y too often that we have to search out the other sides to get a more accurate picture/understanding.... but as the teller usually wants to influence the audience's thinking, I guess it's quite understandable.  [I am not referring to any specific event.] 

Btw Don... what event are you referring to? Inquiring minds want to know.... and it would help schmucks like me follow along.  wink  

Overhere.... so bad it's good??  I had a colleague that once in a while would note that "... my tongue was bleeding in there" ... usually conveyed to us on the way home after a staff meeting.  The first time he used it, I had to ask what he was going on about.

Unless you’re teaching or reporting news, there’s no obligation to present counter-arguments to your own.

Bill, that sounds like a distant relative of, "... tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth..." even when the "whole" truth isn't known.   Is there any ethical obligation [not in a court room setting] to not pass off false/fake/impossible stuff as "argument."

IF it's actual/factual news that's being reported, I don't see much room for argument OR counter-argument.   

I know there's constraints w.r.t. time, money, viewership, competition, yada, yada, yada, but trying to deliberately pass off commentary/editorializing as "news"  doesn't pass muster in my book*..... and that goes for acts of omission as well as commission.

* = The title will be: "When News Sources Mislead Us"   .... if you want a copy just e-transfer $50 to me. wink
