Misinformation Is Pure Trouble! How? Let us form a circle…
Dear “journalist without a newsroom”,
Please be careful with the information you are spreading out there. Misinformation is pure trouble. It can cause an entire war of words, war between people and a war between those living in close and far boundaries.

Report on what has actually happened before your eyes and ears only, if you would. We do not want any more reported speech!
It will be so nice if we see more of those “open quotes” marks in your reporting; we do not see any more of them, these days.
For “misinformation is pure trouble”
Here is an example to try out;
Form a circle,
Turn to your neighbour and say something to them, in a low tone.
Then, ask your neighbour to say to the person next to them, what you said to them, in that whisper.

Let them also pass on the message to the person next to them till the circle comes back to you.
In the end, let everybody say out loud what they were told by the person next to them!
I am waiting to hear your answers!
Reported speech is always broken down into misinformation and that always becomes pure trouble.
Thank you in advance,
Yours truly, a concerned consumer of your “news”!
Is it not ironic?
Be As Flexible As Rubber band!

There is so much fake news in the media. If only the news would report things that were 100% true rather than always one-sided.
Misinformation is real.
Yes! The game mentioned in this post is called Telephone, and as a child I used to play this in summer camp and see how the message evolved. Back then it was fun, now I see how it can be dangerous.

There are lots of fake news spreading in social media nowadays. It’s quite alarming because it really seems to be truthful information, We should all be careful about it.
This we called the whispering game in our school. People listen to something, pass it on to someone else s something then that someone passes something else to someone n the circle goes on and on and on.
One of my country’s big problems is misinformation and fake news. A lot of wrong info has been spreading on the internet these days. So we should always be careful.
I don’t have a person next to me as I write this comment. But I’ve seen videos of people passing information and it keeps changing.
We have done this before. The original message is never said at the end, lol
Miss information is so harmful for so many different parties involved, thank you so much for sharing this!
I love this post. Misinformation is one of the most insidious things in this world. It can be the result of pure misunderstandings that causes problems, or it can be used as a weapon.
