Why Our Creditably Matters
We can’t be dismissed
Not a day goes by without someone asking me to publicly support something.
And I always think about what they are asking and is it realistic and is it based in fact.
That’s because our credibility matters.
Not that I haven’t had instances where I’ve trusted someone I shouldn’t. But I try to avoid it and feel bad when it happens.
But you get too many strikes in the credibility department and people really start to wonder.
Like the latest story where Biden is calling out “Russian Disinformation!”
Now we all know Russian Disinfomation has been, apparently, a label on truthful matters.
When I was a kid they used to tell a story about the kid that said “wolf” too many times.
Anyway, the current administration is calling “Russian Disinformation” on the claim that military supplies -given by the US - are being resold by Ukraine.
