'The media has run countless pieces based on leaks from Team #Mueller and their assorted pals.

And framed them as coming from anonymous sources.'
'BuzzFeed's story looked no different.

It claimed to have inside info from Team Muller and was based on anonymous sources.'

🚨 Let’s take a sec to look at what narcissistic people are like & what to watch out for 👇

It’s important in this movement to realize that many are out to mislead you in large numbers.

The surprise will be on you if you don’t see beyond the hysteria.

A seasoned General, LEO, prosecutor, (honest) counsel (yes, we exist, but are not the norm), and professional investigator will agree:

Look for these signs 👇
With all due respect to anons fighting daily with their time, lives here daily, it’s ultra important to pay attention to very telling details. Don’t let your voice, your opinion be silenced! Don’t follow wolves in sheep’s clothing.

The Fourth Estate is like the rest of society: #diverse and complex, yet immensely important. Several #Media outlets continue to operate with integrity, passion for truth, and professional excellence…yet…
Sadly, many well-known #news brands have fallen prey to the same desire for eyeballs and subscriptions that infects so many @YouTube vloggers and @Instagram “celebrities”.
Posting disingenuous and misleading #clickbait headlines to drive traffic or whipping up non-stories into narratives designed to inspire outrage and division is something we have come to expect from the current political Administration.

BBC #newsHACK: Reaching Young Audiences

IE @BBC wants to figure out how to get young people addicted to checking the news (and maybe reinvent #clickbait?)
1/
"How can trusted news providers reach young audiences?

Participants will be asked to prototype a new format that addresses one or more news needs identified by our research."

2/
"These include:

* “News grazing”, or the habit of checking frequently for news updates throughout the day
* The need for news’ relevance to be clear and accessible
* The desire for human significance in reported news"

Another example of why you should always read the small print. Despite the #ClickBait title, the author himself agrees that the effect is not #Sanskrit specific.
Beats me as to why you would say one thing in the title and another in your article.
Better controls for testing the validity of #sanskrit being the cause for the enlarged hippocampi would've been #Buddhist monks who have similar chanting practices.
